After all of this was taken care of we were ready to move on to closing. Closing took place at Landowners Title in Bossier City on 6/13/14.

At the end everyone came out happy and this Benton home was SOLD.

Our Seller Mrs. Katy answered a few questions for us about her Shreveport home for sale.

 

What do you love about your current home?

I love the open floorplan and the amazing kitchen.  I have enjoyed entertaining friends and family so much these past four years we’ve owned the home.  I love that I can be cooking in the kitchen, but also keeping up with the conversation happening in the living room.  I also love that I was able to cook dinner while keeping an eye on my boys, whether they were playing in the living room or even out in the backyard.  Now that we have our two young boys, I am so appreciative of the spacious backyard and covered patio.  We spend so much time playing and relaxing back there.  I also cannot stress enough how wonderful our neighbors are. They are seriously the best!

What drew you to your current home originally?

I was drawn to the home by the fact that it had been recently renovated and updated.  I also thought it was so cute and had great curb appeal.  I researched the area and found it to be very safe and centrally located as well.

Where do you love to eat?

Our favorite place to eat in Shreveport is Superior.  We love the margaritas and chips and salsa.

Where do you love to shop?

I love to shop at Shoppes at Bellemead.  It is a short five minute stroll and features many trendy boutiques.

What can you tell me about your neighborhood?

We have the best neighbors ever!  I will miss our neighborhood so much.  Everyone looks out for one another.  I can’t even explain how much I will miss our neighbors.  We are also so centrally located to so many things.  Target is a two minute drive, which was extremely convenient for me as a young mother.  I used to love putting the boys in the stroller, and strolling over to AC Steere Park or Shoppes at Bellemead.  I also frequently strolled to Albertson’s if I needed something that I forgot to grab on my weekly Target trip.  Our neighborhood could not have been more convenient or centrally located.

Anything else you can tell me such as schools or the area you live in?

I don’t know too much about the schools because my boys are still so young, but the Broadmoor area is very family-friendly and safe.

Tell me about the town. What drew you to the town?

My husband’s job is what originally brought us to Shreveport.  We lived there for five years and grew to love the kindness and hospitality of everyone we met.

Good Day Everyone,
We are posting this because we have some very exciting news, and we wanted to share it with the people that we care about. This information is important and may be relevant to your Real Estate needs. We have just a few announcements and we will keep it short and sweet.

 

First, we have some great news about our Team! As of June, 2014 we have added a new member, a Listing Agent, to Holloway Home Group.

 

This means that the Shreveport/Bossier area will have a new opportunity to list with a fresh face starting June 1, 2014. Jamie Sandefur has joined Holloway Home Group to help cover the board with Listings. Jamie is ready and willing to capture and convert leads into Listings. Jamie has obtained her Louisiana License and has all the proper knowledge to get homes SOLD. Welcome Jamie!

 

Keep posted to our Facebook as well as http://www.findyourwayholloway.com for info on the new Listing Agent starting with us this summer. We feel very lucky about finding Jamie and adding her to our Team. As a reminder you can continue to book online Listing/Buying and Showing appointments.

Secondly (and lastly) we have expanded our business to Nashville, TN and surrounding areas. Holloway Home Group has made the huge step to get Tennessee License and start serving the Middle TN area. Everything in Shreveport/Bossier will be ran the same with the systems the Team has in place. Those systems that have been proven to work will also be implemented in Nashville, TN.

 

Holloway Home Group is very happy about this expansion with the Team as well as with Tennessee. We are excited to see what our Real Estate future has in store! Thank you everyone for being supportive of us in this Season of our business. We take every transaction to heart, and can’t wait to better serve your Real Estate needs.
Thank you!!

Closed a Holloway Home Group Exclusive Listing!!!! READ ABOUT IT HERE

Holloway Home Group listed 505 Fox Cove on 12/05/13 and it SOLD on 05/30/14. What an amazing journey we had with these Sellers. This particular home is located in Dogwood South of Haughton, LA. Once we got the Listing we immediately started the marketing process on it. This includes making flyers, blasting on Social Media, blogging, sending out email, Open Houses, and etc.

This home is a beautiful 4 bedroom 2.5 bath and about 1994 sqft. There are many wonderful features in this Haughton home. Hardwood flooring, granite counter tops, great fire place, and covered patio. Throughout the home you will find all neutral colors, and spacious rooms.

This closing went extremely well, Holloway Home Group got an offer from Karyn Bodden and her Buyer, and our Sellers agreed to accept! WOW.. so then the process began. All Title work was done at Bayou Title, the loan was FHA, and it closed for $245,000. We called this transaction a WIN WIN. Everyone left happy. The best part about it all is that these Buyers get to enjoy their new home, and our Sellers get to start a new journey in their life an marriage. We are so excited for all, and Thank you for working with Holloway Home Group to get your home SOLD!!!
