I used Beth Collier as my realtor when I sold one house and bought another house at the same time. Her knowledge of the real estate business made the very difficult process a huge success. With the help of her broker, Monty Edwards, they were able to overcome the shortcomings of the buyers realtor and not only helped me close on my house but was able to do so in a timely manner. The most knowledgeable realty company I know of and I recommend them friends and family. If/when I buy another house I will definitely be using Beth Collier as my realtor.
hpfl71 - Sounds to me like maybe it's your landlord that's cheap!! I've owned my Betenbough home now for 6 years and have enjoyed doing some of the upgrades myself such as tiling the kitchen back splash. Owning a Betenbough home can be a dream come true for people that wish to become homeowners. All houses require maintenance. I'm sorry you have such a sucky landlord.
HodgePode has unique gifts. The staff is friendly and personable. I cannot find a better place in Lubbock for a girls day out shopping trip. They also do the best custom invitations for weddings, birth announcements, graduations, and anything else you could possibly want. This is my favorite store in Lubbock!
