The life and times of Patricia Scruggs

New Restaurant!

The Fein Print

There is a new restaurant opening in Houston, TX called Dogwood Houston. In the process of introducing the new restaurant to Facebook users, I’ve been able to deduce a lot of great information about Texas native, Patricia Scruggs.

Key takeaways 

Patricia doesn’t mind associating herself with unemployed people

Patricia is concerned that no one will read her friend’s resume until it’s too late

Dogwood Houston isn’t going to give Patricia’s friend any special treatment

Patricia lives in Lake Jackson, TX but bought an extra house 55 miles away in Houston, TX, and it’s vacant

Patricia thinks it’s necessary to have two houses an hour apart from each other

Patricia assumes the owners of Dogwood Houston don’t live in Houston

Patricia thinks there’s a possibility that the owners of Dogwood Houston didn’t think to arrange a place to stay before construction started

Patricia doesn’t care to meet with restaurant owners before offering…

1. Add big, bold house numbers.

 It’s so easy to swap out house numbers, and this one thing can make a huge impact. Echo your house style in the numbers you choose

— a clean sans serif font for a modern house, hand-painted tiles for a cottage, aged copper for a Prairie-style home etc.

2. Paint the front door.A front door that pops can be hugely cheering. Read up…

Keller Williams Realty Wins Powerball Lottery

Keller Williams Team Shows How Much KW Culture Affects Everyone

A Plantation, Florida realtor assistant, who recently began a new job with Keller Williams Realty, has already started to love the Keller Williams culture after the team added her in on their $1 million lottery winnings this week.

Jennifer Maldonado recently spoke with The Miami Herald stating she just began working at Keller Williams Partner Realty in Plantation, Fla., when all of her 12 office employees put their money together for Powerball tickets. The $20 buy-in seemed a bit on the steep end, so Maldonado declined the initial offer to join them, she told the Herald.

“I hadn’t gotten a paycheck, and I was watching my pennies,” Maldonado said.

Now go ahead and flash back to the scene where her office mates received the news that they had won $1 million. The Plantation Keller Williams team had the five matching numbers: 17, 29, 31, 52 and 53. All they didn’t have was the crucial red Powerball number, which would have allowed them a nice big share of the previous Saturday’s $338 million Powerball jackpot.

Maldonado then walked in on the party — and thought it was a well thought out practical joke.

Laurie Finkelstein Reader, a Keller Williams Realtor and head of the team in that particular office, was the Powerball organizer and assured Maldonado she was not the butt end of a joke. Amy Kilcoyne, also a Realtor, was put in charge to check the numbers and noticed one of their tickets matched the winning combination.

“I thought we won like $100 or $1,000,” Kilcoyne told the Herald. When they realized the truth, “people started freaking out,” she said. Split 12 ways, the cool million comes to more than $83,300 per person.

“I’m blessed,” Finkelstein Reader told the Herald. “My share of money won’t change my life. But so far this has touched many lives — it’s about sharing the happiness.”

Even though Jennifer Maldonado did not add in the $20 upfront, the team at Keller Williams did what anyone in the KW Culture would do and decided to share a portion of their winnings — they will not state how much — with her.

“As a team we put together a fat pile of money,” Finkelstein Reader said. “If we do the right thing and always care about other people, the right thing will happen to us.”

Keep up the Good Work


If you are using an Agent to sell your home, they need to feel comfortable about making appointments to bring potential buyers through the property.
If you make it difficult for them they will simply take clients to other properties which are more welcoming.

It gives off negative vibes if a buyer wants to view a property at a certain time and the vendor is unwilling to let them through. The same goes if a vendor will only give a small window of opportunity every few days. This property will always sell other properties because the purchasers have contacted the Agent off the marketing in place for your property, and if the buyers can’t view, and they are usually ready to buy, they will buy another property in the same price range.

If you want to be at home during an inspection, make the agent and the buyer feel very…
