This Is Sucking The Life Out Of Me


Buyers are sucking the life out of me !!!

I am selling a house in Maine (hahahaha).
That in itself is a joke.
We have rebuilt a classic cottage in Rockland Maine.....
We have rebuilt it from the bottom up.
New windows - new HUGE windows,
new kitchen, new floors,all new walls (insulation)
(Not to mention 90K invested)
It was so cold when we first moved here.
That was because the sub-zero winter winds were blowing right through the walls.
Blah, Blah, Blah, Blah, it goes on and on.

NO MORE.

IT IS A NEW HOUSE. 
It is F#cking Gorgeous !!!
The buyers 
don't need to be unbelievably demanding !

OH.....
BUT THEY ARE !!!
I could tell you stories.....



I actually had someone ( a woman)
write me a sad sack letter who wanted to buy the house because 
she ONLY had 80k in cash.
Newly divorced.....
a dog.......
No Kids.

Are you F@cking kidding me ????
I don't know the last time I had 80K after a divorce.
Actually, I don't know many people with 80K cash on hand.





When I got divorced WITH A CHILD (4 ys old)
I had ZIP. 
NOTHING !!!!
I had to pay my EX 30K just to stay in my house.
Call me crazy but 80K can buy you a lot of mortgage.

Am I Right ????



I am just thinking of heading SOUTH.



Timing is the issue, 
and that has me by the 'Cha Cha's'


I feel beat up and exhausted.
Believe me I am....
And I am one of those fragile souls.

It took me a life time to find that out.
I always thought I was tougher than I really am. 


One thing I have learned is this.....

Panic attack ?????

Jump in the shower and wash your hair.
You Will Be Alright !!!
It Is Magic !!!

Trust Me !!!

  1. Love this post!
    I remember when my husband and I were combining apartments with 2 fireplaces and a terrace in a Pre-war off Beekman Place. I said to my friends " If I ever complain about anything during this wonderful project, just slap me please"...
    You could find one of your amazing photographs for this.

About Renée Finberg

I have been in this business since the age of 22.

I love what I do and cannot imagine my life without Design.

Design Challenges are great.

And because of those challenges

I have imported fine antique pieces from Paris,

Designed and Manufactured Furniture,

Created Fantastic Window Treatments,

And solved all kinds of spatial & architectural issues

With my unique style.

If I can't find it, I create it.

My rooms would make excellent movie sets.

I am a visual, tactile and audio sensitive individual.

Creating is what I live for, not math, not spelling, not science.

Just Great Design.

Just imagine how it would be if each of us,

If only for a few hours of everyday,We could be in a space that is our very own.A place that is exactly the way we want it to be

Surrounded by all the things we wanted to see,

The atmosphere we wanted feel, smell and the sound we wanted to listen to.
