Helen Adams Realty thanks Robin Woods for her continued service to all of his clients. Some of  her recent clients know that Robin provides great help, and we’re proud to have her represent Helen Adams Realty!

See what they had to say below:

Robin - Cropped - edited

“We recently moved back to Charlotte and were looking for our permanent family home…the one with all the bells and whistles! We met Robin through a referral and not only is she an excellent realtor with all the technical skills/qualifications that a home buyer needs to guide us along the way, but she exceeded our expectations with the simple thought provoking questions to help us weigh various options as we looked at homes. It was wonderful to have that person who did her research and knows Charlotte to help you weigh schools, neighborhoods, style of home to fit family and extended family needs, and to help you have a vision for what the future may entail in the home. We found that home through her help – and it has the bells and whistles but in a more realistic light to meet our financial goals and family needs! Not only is Robin pleasurable, calm and reassuring to work with during what can be a stressful process but she is extremely thorough thinking through every little detail from the time we went to showings to the final closing hour. Not once did she let anything fall through the cracks, she was proactive and incredibly speedy, especially when it counts – negotiation and the due diligence period, she got it done for us! It was wonderful to work with Robin and we are thrilled about the future ahead in our new home!”


Congratulations Robin, and keep up the outstanding work!

Whether you have a small or large closet, making the most of the space can transform a room!

Here are a few ideas inspired by one of our current listings!

(12479 Preservation Pointe Drive)

Master Closet


Instead of piling things up on the ground or tucked into shelves, use baskets to categorize things. You can even create decorative labels for them if you’d like! These are great for socks, hats, or other miscellaneous things that can’t be hung.


These are great for creating storage for baskets or things like shoes and purses.


The more you can take advantage of wall space, the more open the room will feel! Whether you are prepping your home to sell or just sprucing up your house, this tip can be handy for any room!


Categorizing not only makes the closet more appealing, but it makes it easier to find things! While categorizing, it can also be a good time to get rid of things you don’t really need anymore!

Whether you are getting ready to sell your home or just looking to spruce up your property, these easy, one-day projects can go a long way!


  • Install porch lights – if you already have some, you can clean or refinish them for an updated look
  • Potted plants – having these on your front porch can provide a welcoming, natural feel
  • Clean/repaint the front door – an old or dirty front door can set the tone for the rest of the showing, so give yours a good clean or repaint it!
  • Box/hanging planters – box planters beneath windows, or hanging planters on the front porch can add another level of depth to the appearance of the home

Helen Adams Realty  thanks Curt Seifart Jr.  for his continued service to all of his clients. Some of  his recent clients know that Stan provides incredible help, and we’re proud to have him represent Helen Adams Realty! See what they had to say below:

Curt Seifart

“Curt was by far the best real estate agent I’ve ever worked with in my life. He was always on top of things and went above and beyond the call of duty in order to help us find, purchase, and move into the home we wanted. I could not be more pleased with his service. We needed to buy a home quickly and Curt was always prompt and engaged. We would not have been able to get the quality home at the speed we purchased it with out his extraordinary efforts. Curt was fantastic to work with. It is clear he has a mastery of the craft and an incredible knowledge of Charlotte and the process of buying a home. He was there for us every step of the way, he never let any detail fall through the cracks, and we truly felt as though he was in it for our best interest through the entire process. We will recommend Curt and Helen Adams in the future to friends and family when moving and if we are ever in need again of real estate services we will turn to Curt first. Curt, thank you for your exemplary work!!!”

– Rev. Benjamin Boswell

Congratulations Curt and keep up the outstanding work! Learn more about Curt here.
