Deb's Lake Conroe Real Estate & Stuff! : Wake Up On Lake Livingston...New Take On Localism Part II

Wake Up On Lake Livingston...New Take On Localism Part II

You pour your coffee, step out on the back deck and sit under the shade of your Oak tree. You begin thinking back to the first day you learned of the treasures of Lake Livingston, Texas.  It really was like a treasure hunt without the hope of finding the treasure...but low and behold, here you are. "How did I get so lucky, you think to yourself?" Oh, sure. Just happenstance. "I remember now."

My honey and I were driving back home to Houston from our weekend trip. We had decided to take the back roads instead of I-45. We hoped the views would be much better. And, they certainly were! We passed the small town of Trinity Texas and were getting close to I-45 when we saw a billboard that really captured our attention.

There it was touting Lake Homes For Sale...hum, we thought.

Brooks Prime Properties Sign

Didn't we see them on Active Rain? We're ahead of schedule so why don't we call them??? "Okay", and a Realtor by the name of Debra Brooks  answered the phone with such enthusiasm! She was really helpful. wishing

She directed us to her office and offered to show us around the lake. Why not, we thought? We are only an hour and a half from our home in Houston! We've always wanted to have a weekend getaway but we just never dreamt it could happen.

So, we met Deb at her office. It was close to the lake and we hit it off right off the bat. We were afraid we might be underdressed but she met us in flip flops, jeans and a T-shirt.

How comfortable she made us feel! She visited with us for a bit while we filled her in on our dreams and financial status and the next thing we know she swooped us away to the lake. She was driving and it was a great break for us after driving for the day.

 

Nothing is scarier than wishing for something you just can't have. Deb just kept reassuring us that it was going to be fine and that we could make it work.

That it WAS possible.

After she showed us the third house in a beautiful part of the lake called Carolina Cove, we were in love. Carolina Cove

 

This Carolina Cove is where we wanted to be! It felt like home....away from home. An hour and a half away from our house in Houston, it was far enough away to feel like we were "away from it all" yet close enough to be back quickly.

 

 

The cove is deep and blue and safe and beautiful. It leads right into Lake Livingston and in to the Trinity River for yet another water adventure.

Deb told us she felt that angels gathered there to refresh and reflect.

We looked at each other and we knew this was it. This is where we wanted to be! We had a gazillion questions and Deb answered them all!

Gosh, we wanted to know everything!

We sat down with Deb and this is what she told us...

Debra- I love this story about this agent named 'Deb'. I know if she were helping me buy my home on the lake she would be the best one for the job.

Deb - If Ceil and I were to leave Canyon Lake and move to your lake we would want you for our Realtor because your nice, because you would put out the welcome mat, because you pay attention to details and because we know you like white chocolate strawberries and paid a great amout of $$$ to donate to a good cause. Enjoyed meeting you at the Gathering at Bandera. Maybe we will see you in Austin.
