Stone Brooke Crossing Garage Sale & Open House Tour - RESULTS!

Wow...what a weekend! Laura and I would like to thank our awesome neighbors in Stone Brooke Crossing for participating in our First Annual Garage Sale & Open House Tour that took place this past Saturday. Laura and I have heard from several of you and so far the response has been great!

· Well over 250 groups of shoppers visited the garage sales
· Many sellers sold most their items – with reports of one sale being sold out by 11 am
· We had visitors from as far away as Oklahoma as a result of the advertising
· We received cash and donated items for the Samaritan Inn Gateway Apartment Project
· The kids even got in on the excitement with reports of lemonade stands and cookie sales

Based on this response we have decided that we will make it a priority to host this garage sale each year, and possibly twice a year. It is our hope that the word will spread and even more residents will get in on the action! We would like to stress that this was not a HOA sponsored event. Laura and I are residents of Stone Brooke Crossing and were happy to be able to serve our community by organizing and sponsoring the event.

As always, we want to let you know that if you are in need of a McKinney Real Estate Agent we would be honored to earn your business. If you are looking for a Realtor with an aggressive, International Marketing Program that produces results – we are the ones for you! With our team you get TWO agents representing you resulting in TWICE the effort and results. No one knows Stone Brooke Crossing Real Estate like we do! Call us for a no-pressure, complimentary market analysis!

Get Ready...Get Set...


This weekend's Neighborhood Garage Sale & Open House Tour is upon us and we have had GREAT feedback! Our Stone Brooke Crossing neighbors are gearing up for some great garage sales. It's time to do your Spring Cleaning & clear out those closets!

If you have already turned in your registration forms and $15 then you will be recieving your garage sale permit tomorrow. Laura and I will be delivering these to you along with a copy of the neighborhood map that will be handed out to all the shoppers as they drive into our neighborhood on Crutcher Crossing (by the pool). You'll be the first to get a sneak peek at all the goodies your neighbors will be selling.

Make sure you stop by the pool and park area on Saturday morning, because Nathan Scott with First United Mortgage will be handing out donuts and refreshments. Come on down and say HI and meet some of your neighbors. Laura and I look forward to meeting each of you.
