So I am now 7 weeks into my first flip and it has been a ride thus far. Kitchen cabinets are in thankfully! I ordered them on the 4th of this month and purchased solely for the fact that they were "in stock" cabinets. :( Four weeks later they were delivered. Now I know it may seem like I'm complaining however that's not the case. It was a valuable lesson learned, just go get them yourself!!! I am now ready to return 10 items that were incorrectly shipped to us, with another 4 s sitting at the store that need to be returned. On top of that, the flooring installers stopped by the property yesterday and ruled that they were unable to install. The reason for that?? We needed to have the A/C down to 70 so that we could have a valid warranty. Now that would be just fine, but the reason the A/C was higher was because it froze over yesterday morning!!!!!!! OH NO!!!!!
Lucky enough it was caught early and no damage was done. We are still behind schedule but the end is near. It will be a beautiful home for someone... it just isn't happening soon enough.

"East Coast Transplants - February 2016
My wife and I moved to Austin after 25+ years living in Washington, DC. We chose the perfect real estate agent: Violet Leff is professional, experienced and totally committed to her clients. She found us our new home, and helped us make the right offer, one that was quickly accepted. Violet worked with us after the home inspection walking us through the repair list, and helping us negotiate items the inspection spotlighted. We returned to DC knowing we would be well represented by Violet throughout the closing process.
She worked with the condo association and management firm on several issues and advised us on various services we would need. Violet also prepared an extensive list of vendors for jobs we might need done around our condo. She sent us weekly enticements of Austin events to help us remember that our big move to Austin was the right one. A major change and a complicated move for us to make, but Violet was with us all the way.
Now in Austin, Violet has become a friend and just not our real estate agent. We feel that we can call her anytime, and we have, for suggestions on services like dog groomers, vets, hairdressers, and places to shop. Her weekly list of Austin events is even more appreciated now that we are here. She is a great real estate agent who we will certainly recommend without hesitation."
