Agent Spotlight – 5 Question Quiz with Martha Williams & April Coulter

It’s time for our 5 question quiz with our May Spotlight Agents. Enjoy these fun and interesting answers!

Martha Williams

1. How do you start a conversation?

I usually introduce myself and try to find something me and the other person might have in common to talk about. I really enjoy meeting new people.

2. What is the strangest thing you have ever eaten?

I am a big sushi lover, and eel is one of my favorites! The whole rare fish thing doesn’t bother me at all. The one I don’t care for and is the strangest thing to me is octopus.

3. What types of music do you listen to?

I am all over the spectrum on this one. One minute I’m listening to Rascal Flatts and the next it’s pop music. If I’m cooking and relaxing for the night, I find some soft jazz.

4. What is something you constantly lose?

My water bottle! I am always with one and tend to loose one all the time. It is nothing for me to have four scattered through the house and car by the end of the day because I keep leaving them places.

5. Who do you go to for advice?

My four best girlfriends – one of which is my best friend since we met in kindergarten and the others in college. We have a group chat that has been going on daily since group chats were possible. Between all of us someone has been through whatever situation might arise!

 

April Coulter

1. How do you start a conversation?

“Are you originally from here?”  I enjoy hearing people’s stories about where they are from and how they got here.  I love that Auburn is a melting pot of people from all around the country and the world, with different perspectives, traditions, thoughts and ideas.

2. What is the strangest thing you have ever eaten?

My little boy likes to experiment with food dye when helping us cook.  I know he tries to tell me it should taste the same, no matter the color, but BLUE scrambled eggs are just not appealing to me!

3. What types of music do you listen to?

Every type, I love music!  It really just depends on my mood.  From classical to jazz to pop to country and everything in between, I find that music is great to set the mood, improve your mood or make a memory.

4. What is something you constantly lose?

I didn’t often lose things before I had children.  Now, it is an every day occurrence to locate the remote control in our home!

5. Who do you go to for advice?

My mom, my husband and my close friends.  They each are intelligent, know me well and have different perspectives.  They are always honest and challenge me to be the best I can be, while also being supportive of my hopes and dreams.

Summer is coming… so much to do in Auburn!

image6image5image4

Summer.  As a child, this word evoked excitement.  It meant no school, sleeping late, and just having fun.  As a parent of a school-age child and a preschooler, this word now evokes a bit of anxiety.  How do I keep my children entertained without using the TV or iPad or any other electronic device as a babysitter for 3 months?

image2image3image1

We are very blessed to live in a community that provides so many different summer activity options for our children.  Do your children like to play dress up?  There’s a Pirates and Princesses Acting/Dance Camp sure to entertain them and grow their imagination.  Do they enjoy the outdoors?  There are several Ecology camps sponsored by the Louise Kreher Forest Ecology Preserve you can check out.  Are they interested in trying a new sport?  There is a camp for almost every sport imaginable to teach them the basics and see if they want to pursue it further.  Both the Auburn and Opelika libraries have special summer activities and reading programs.  Many local churches have vacation bible schools.  The movie theaters and bowling alley both offer special summer activities and rates for children.  Our area doesn’t forget about the parents, either.  From outdoor movies and festivals, to concerts in the park and even “float-in” movies at local pools, there are plenty of activities for families to enjoy together.

As a Realtor, the numerous activities is one of my favorite selling points of our area.  Many of our area’s neighborhoods even offer pools, playgrounds, green spaces, sidewalks or walking trails for their residents’ enjoyment.  I am very thankful to live in this area where our children are given so many opportunities to grow their hearts, their minds and their bodies.    With a little bit of planning I’m really hoping I don’t hear, “I’m bored,” but rather, “Mommy that was so much fun, I can’t wait to do that again!”
