Welcome to our Fixer Upper! The photo above certainly helps you see the charming potential of our house, but when you get up close, you can see immediately that it needs a lot of love and some dire help. We are up for the challenge though (I think?) and excited to be able to share […]

  • Amy - Your home has so much character and is beautiful! We also bought a fixer upper and have just entered into one of our biggest reno projects! The kitchen!!! I’m doing dishes in the bathtub and we are eating crock pot meals I precooked before our kitchen was torn apart! I’ve learned to just go with it day by day and enjoy the process!ReplyCancel

    • Robyn Van Dyke - Thank you, Amy!! That’s such a great idea to use the crock pot for meals and I’m laughing imagining doing dishes in the tub! ๐Ÿ˜‰ I’d love to see your kitchen reno when it’s all done and am praying that the process goes smoothly for y’all!! That’s the first major reno we are hoping to do as well! ๐Ÿ™‚ReplyCancel

Happy October, y’all! I’ve set and shared monthly goals for the past 5+ years, and I love the accountability aspect of goal sharing. It always inspires me to read others’ goals and cheer them on, and nothing is more satisfying than doing the hard work and checking off goals! So I’m excited to continue the […]

    • Robyn Van Dyke - Thanks, Em! We haven’t fully decided yet (open to suggestions!) but we’re leaning towards the Asheville area where it’s a bit cooler! ๐Ÿ™‚ReplyCancel

We are so thankful and excited to have finally closed on our “White House” as of yesterday! After countless hours of research, prayerfully asking for wisdom during negotiations, and successfully getting the seller to agree to our offer at 100K below ask (!), we learned a lot from our recent experience! So we thought it […]

  • Denise Abatzis - Hi there –

    guess what? this was MY House! ๐Ÿ™‚ I’m the daughter that he referred to.

    And guess what’s even crazier? I work with Berkley Wooten and we were randomly talking about things and realized this connection today on a business trip together!

    I’m so glad that you are (or appear to be) liking the house so far. we loved that house. If i could have picked it up and moved it to Richmond (where i live now), i 100% would have.

    Excited to see the renovations and its “facelift”.

    I still have a few friends living in Kinston, although a bit older than you, if you need some connections.
