|Dear Friend of Adel, |
Welcome to June in Adel. Summer is officially here and the downtown Facade project is wrapping up, and is it looking good! You're going to want to stop by just to see the renovations, and while you're here, there is plenty to do.
Terry is back. Last month I promised that we'd run another "unique" Terry article in June. I had no idea how unique it would be. As always, I caution taking Terry with a grain of salt, I prefer to add a slice of lemon.
So grab a cup of coffee, there's a lot to cover this month and we look forward to seeing you in Adel.
|Kim Layland - Real Estate Broker|
This month, DiscoverAdel.com would like to introduce you to Real Estate Broker, Kim Layland.
|Kim Layland, Real Estate Broker|
A real estate broker is the mediator between those who wish to buy and sell property. She is currently involved with selling homes in the new Bailey's Grove housing development in Adel.
For the past 15 years Kim has been involved in the real estate business, becoming a licensed Realtor in 2002, and licensed Broker in 2007.
Kim holds several certifications and designations she uses to help her client's achieve the goals of buying and selling their property.
Kim's office is located in her DeSoto home and her RE/MAX Precision office in the metro, though you might say her office is within the properties she negotiates. These include the listing and selling of all facets of real estate such as new construction, existing homes, farms, land, and acreages. Kim is a county girl at heart who enjoys horses, spending time with her family, camping, trail riding, fishing, and partaking in horse competitions.
"The Bailey's Grove development is the latest- and greatest- development in Adel that offers a variety of well constructed homes of various prices and sites. We also offer custom homes to suit a person or family's lifestyle."
"There are currently three plats underway in Bailey's Grove. Plat 3 just off Highway 169 offers 46 home-sites and is basically sold out! Plat 5 is the closest to the water park and offers a total of 35 home-sites, which have sold quickly with remaining lots still available. Plat 4 is the newest edition and offers walkout, daylight, and flat lots. There are 48 sites including treed and cul de-sac options. There is still time to think about owning or building your new home in Adel."
It is important to remember that this influx of new housing also brings about change within the existing housing market. Adel has always been known for its wide variety of classic homes spanning building periods across the century. This eclectic blend of architecture and aesthetics contributes to the small town feel. With the new housing developments offering current residents affordable options to build homes, this opens the door for new owners to call these historic homes their own.
Kim's ideal client is a serious buyer or seller who has an idea of what their end goal is.
"I like it when I can get personal with the room a professional aspect and learn their lifestyle. This helps me to determine how they will use their home and therefore helps me find the proper square footage or style for entertaining; the perfect yard for kids or gardener; the serious cook a gourmet kitchen; or the peace and quiet of country living."
Kim states that Adel has quickly become her home as well. "Adel is a friendly, growing community with a lot to offer. It is where I go to shop, eat, and play in the parks with my grandson. It is just far enough from the metro to offer a small town feeling with large town amenities. With easy access to the metro, great schools, community involvement and the beautifully restored town square, not to mention the current tax incentives, what more could you ask for! You can get your tires changed, go to the vet with your pet, stop by and get your mail or a driver's license all within a short distance and in little time. I look forward to becoming even more acquainted and ingrained in the Adel community."

|Father's Day June 21st - Memories of Dad|
|L-R; Shaving cup and brush, safety razor, Old Spice, electric razor.|
June 21st is Father's Day this year. A time to honor and a time to reflect. We all have different memories of our dads.
Mine is getting up at 5 am to "shave" with my Dad. I was four and I'd stand on a chair next to him with my own plastic kids razor and soap for shaving cream and imitate each step of his daily routine.
Dad was a safety razor guy and had the fancy model. It had numbers on a wheel at the base where you could adjust how much blade stuck out. He also used Barbasol in a can and cover his lower face with the shaving cream. He'd rinse the razor after each stroke and flip it to the other side before doing the next spot. He'd make faces in the mirror trying to get the best surface for each pass.
When finished he'd rinse with cold water, towel off, shake his face and go brrr! This was followed by a splash of Old Spice, which he'd pat on my face after doing his.
My grandfather would steam his face with a wet washcloth, shave, and use aftershave (Old Spice of course), lotion and finish with a dusting of powder. In the afternoon he'd do a quick once over with an electric razor.
My uncle used shaving soap in a cup that he would bring to a froth with a brush that he would apply to his face.
The men that inspired me have all passed on, but I still use my uncle's shaving cup, a safety razor from my brother, and in a hurry, Grand Dad's electric razor. The Old Spice is a given, a tradition that I never thought about.
Last week as one of my grandson's was watching me shave. I had to open a new box of Old Spice. On the side of the box was written "If your Grandfather hadn't worn it you wouldn't exist."
