First Annual Pie Giveaway

by Mayes Harris Team

The first annual Thanksgiving pie giveaway was a huge success!   To thank all of my clients for their business, I decided to host a pie party in the quaint log cabin at Ramah Church in Huntersville the Tuesday before Thanksgiving. We gave out 31 pies (half were pumpkin and half were pecan) to about 55 people who came with their kids, parents, grandkids.  We asked that people bring along food to donate to the Ada Jenkins Center in Davidson and we got 8 huge boxes worth – the back of my SUV was full!  My children had a wonderful time, and said they would never forget this experience.  I loved reconnecting with so many wonderful people, who said they enjoyed being able to run in and out to pick up their pies, have some cider and cookies, chat for a while, and get on with their day.  Thank you to everyone who stopped by, and thanks for all the follow-up emails, Facebook posts and other acknowledgements of how “yummy” the pies were – Mayes Harris Realty was happy to be part of your Thanksgiving holiday!

Happy Thanksgiving, Y'all!  I am truly thankful for the opportunity to work with all of you over the years.  Have a wonderful holiday!

Now's the time to winterize!

by Mayes Harris Team

As my family and I roasted marshmallows a few weekends ago, wearing hats and mittens, and then enjoyed a beautiful, warm, colorful weekend a few days ago, it made us realize this warmer weather won’t be around for much longer. As we transition from fall into winter, I thought I’d share some home winterizing tips with all of you.  My friend’s sorority sister, Deborah Snoonian, is the Senior Editor of This Old House magazine, and she provided me with some great tips and other articles for you to read.  This has practical tips like getting your heating system serviced (there’s nothing like waking up to a freezing-cold morning shower!), as well as home decorating and cosmetic tips like properly lighting your walkways and adding shades or curtains to your windows to keep away drafts.  Click on the link below:

And by the way, take care to avoid the flu bug this season!  Take a look at this video clip from the Today Show, by clicking on the link below:


So take the time this fall, during the warm days we have left here in North Carolina, to enjoy afternoon walks, the beautiful changing leaves, the yummy foods that this season brings, but also, take some time to prepare your home for the winter.
