1/7/2022



Entrance to The Randall Family Park & Trailhead at Northern Riverwalk

The Randall Family Park & Trailhead at Northern Riverwalk, located North of the River just off Rice Mine Road along the Black Warrior River, is sure to be a hit all year round with all the amenities the newly developed park boasts. There seems to be something for everyone from the pavillion, playground, large green fields, grill and picnic areas, education areas, hammock stands, bike racks, sculpture art, and trail. The park and trailhead, along with 0.6 miles of Riverwalk path, make up Phase One of the Elevate Tuscaloosa Northern Riverwalk project. Nearby the park, you'll find a church, hotel, restaurants, and medical centers. The park and trailhead is a wonderful addition to our community. If you're local, it will likely become your favorite new spot to walk, run, ride bikes, take the children to play, kick around a soccer ball or even birdwatch. If you're visiting Tuscaloosa, don't miss going by to check it out, you'll be glad you did.

What is MLS?

1/13/2020

Maybe you've heard some real estate jargon thrown around about something called the MLS and wondered what it is. I get asked all the time about what it stands for, and more importantly, what it does.

 
The MLS stands for Multiple Listing Service. Its an online platform that agents use to enter properties for sale and share details about a home or property. The biggest benefit of the MLS is that it's the most accurate database for local housing information, and therefore is used by many active agents and brokers. And because it's used by so many agents, about 92% of homes entered in the MLS are sold.

It's been proven to be a useful tool for decades now, and it's why we love using it so much. If you ever need any help with getting your home listed, I'll be happy to help you out!

Historic Northport Train Depot

10/22/2019


  

 

Located in Downtown Northport, The Historic Northport Train Depot and Museum offers a glimpse back into time and a fun afternoon with the family.


We loved taking our little one to the Historic Northport train depot and model train exhibit this past weekend! It is open to the public for free on Saturday's from 10am to 1pm and is located at 803 25th Ave, Northport, AL 35476. My son loved going inside the red caboose train car and climbing all over the exterior. He also enjoyed seeing the model railroad museum located inside the former GM&O Railway Station. It was a short and sweet little family outing before lunch and his afternoon nap. Check it out if you have time! Children will especially love it.

Ridgehaven of South Tuscaloosa

10/17/2019

 

Ridgehaven is a peaceful and convenient neighborhood in the expanding South Tuscaloosa area and is perfect for young families. With Englewood Elementary School within walking distance and the middle school and high school (Hillcrest) just half a mile down Highway 69 South, the location is ideal for young professionals with small children. Each home in Ridgehaven is different and individual making it much more attractive than cookie cutter neighborhoods. The developers, Bill Lunsford and Mike Spivey, began selling lots in 2003 so many homes were built in or around that time. The streets in Ridgehaven, Brittany Lane, Collier’s Way and Harrison Drive, are named after the grandchildren of the developer, Bill Lunsford.

The Playground at Midtown Village

10/17/2019


 

The children’s playground at Midtown Village is a small but fun playground. Although designed for children ages 5-12, my two year old son enjoyed climbing up the stairs, sliding down and playing with the plastic drums. For younger children, I would say parental supervision is a must as there are openings and smaller children could fall off the play set. What I love about this playground is the rubber flooring - it is so nice not to worry about dirt and mulch! Midtown Village is one of Tuscaloosa’s nicer destinations for fashion, food and family fun. It’s a great place to grab a bite to eat and do some shopping!
