Painting With A Twist

This week our amazing team got together for a fun night out at Painting With a Twist in Gainesville. We spent about 2 hours creating and painting a colorful bull with the help of an energetic instructor. With the room filled with delicious food and loud music, it was a great way for everyone in the Pepine Realty group to share a lovely time outside of the office!



You Know It’s Time To Move When…

This new year may be the perfect time to buy a new home or even to sell your own. But how can you tell? People move for very different reasons, but some big issues that increase the motivation may be in your future in 2017.



Are you outgrowing your home?

You may need a new house because you want to start a family. Maybe the kids you do have fill up the living room with toys and need their own play area. Or maybe you just need more closet room or cabinet space in the kitchen. Whatever your personal reason may be, one of the main reasons for selling homes is relocating into a larger house for more spacious living.



Are you spending too much time in the car?

Commuting to work or school can be a hassle in the mornings as well as navigating through that 5 o’clock traffic on the way home. Moving into a new community that is near your job can be a great way to gain more time with those at home or even giving yourself an option to bike or walk to work.


How about having someone else “do it”

Have you been wasting your weekends painting walls, furniture and everything else in sight? Home improvement stores are not where you want to be on a Saturday afternoon. If you can afford to move into a house that has your desired features finished, it may give you back your weekends to enjoy time spent on what and who you love.fwf_fkj5tbo-alice-achterhof
