• Walkthrough Wednesday: FSBO Facts, Fence DIY & Staging to Sell

    This is one of my favorite episodes to date. Wait, do I start every one like that? This week we unveiled a new style of the show so we can provide even more content in each video, in less time. You can expect to see the house tour you come for, plus a DIY of the week, design inspiration and real estate nuggets. Today we’re covering all things FSBO, plus a unique take on a picket fence, and whether or not you should stage your home to sell.

    This cape is adorable, has so much potential and if you see a dark shadow in the night painting that sweet fence a pale yellow, please don’t call the cops.

    It’s Walkthrough Wednesday, presented by Busch Products and Cambria!


  • Size Matters When Buying a Home

    The biggest piece of advice I hear all the time when it comes to buying a home is, “Don’t become house poor”. Listen, I totally agree with that one…to a point. We were the very definition of house poor when we bought our first home. So much so, we couldn’t afford a stitch of furniture to put inside and had to rely on hand-me-downs from family for everything from silverware to toilet paper. And bless my generous in-laws for treating us to a couch so we could stop eating dinner on our bed pillows. (Though it was kind of sweet and romantic for the first few weeks). In any event, I get the house poor point. But we have a bigger one. Read More

  • Walkthrough Wednesday: Contemporary Cool

    Don’t mind Jon charging the camera. Though, it’s one of my favorite nuggets in this week’s episode! Come inside with us for Walkthrough Wednesday – a cool contemporary with so much potential, presented by Busch Products and Cambria!

    This one is a massive 6 bed, 3.2 bath home nestled in the sweet rolling hills of Pompey Pines. It has a ton of space and unbelievable views! Looking for a walkable neighborhood, large lot, and ample opportunities to personalize your home? This one’s for sale through Linda Crawford, Licensed Real Estate Salesperson at HUNT Real Estate ERA. 

    Call of the Loon Productions did an incredible job as usual and those drone shots are pretty sweet!

  • Walkthrough Wednesday: Flip Edition

    Flip has become a dirty word. And I totally get it. It’s kind of like a cuss word – it’s all about the intent behind it. Funny when said in jest by your 80 year old Gram (or sweet, innocent two year old) but not so funny when a driver screams it out the window at you when you stop mid-street to save a squirrel. You get me?

    A design client of ours asked us to check out their summer house that they purchased recently from some flippers. They wanted to know what was done well, what they might need to change, and some ideas to personalize it along the way. Come inside with us for a tour of this cute cape, and we hope you take away some real estate nuggets and a sneak peek at some of the design trends we think you’ll see a lot more of in 2019!

    Without further ado, here’s Walkthrough Wednesday presented by Busch Products and Cambria!

  • Walkthrough Wednesday: Scott Ave Split

    This week’s episode is ready to make a big SPLASH! It’s Walkthrough Wednesday, now presented by Busch Products and Cambria! We could not be more excited about this partnership – both Busch Products and Cambria are family owned businesses, made in the USA, representing core values that truly embody what the Nixon Pack believes in and strives for daily. Not to mention their incredibly gorgeous, sustainable designs for counters and surfaces. We’re customers ourselves – and have their quartz countertops in our kitchen and baths. We’ve also used them several times on client projects – a big hit with families for their durability and unique design. And on a personal note, Darlene Brown (the owner of Busch Products) is the most fierce, generous, and kind #girlboss I know. We feel so grateful (and excited!) to have them as a presenting partner on Walkthrough Wednesday!
    Are you ready to step inside with us for a house tour of this expansive, unique, and chic modern split? This is such an underrated style of home. I am over the moon about this floor plan. It has a separate wing in the back which is so convenient for guests, or even the kiddos. Watch for the pop-ups – this gem is filled with design nuggets, fun facts, and a real surprise at the end!

  • Walkthrough Wednesday: Muskrat Bay

    I’m not entirely sure why it’s called Muskrat Bay, but I do know that Jon tried to scare me with whatever a muskrat is and thankfully, my very high pitched scream didn’t make the cut for this week’s episode. You know what did? Jon dropping trou, (is that how they say it?) to jump in the lake, gorgeous drone shots from our friends at Call of the Loon, and a spectacular lake house that has me dreaming of owning an Airbnb.

    This one is a 4 bed, 3 bath, 2,200 square foot home with a really unique and customizable layout we haven’t seen before. Be sure to check out the pop-ups in this one because there are so many fun facts about this fabulous house – like the different types of fruit trees on the property, a big flub I made in the kitchen, design ideas and more!

    This listing is available through Mary Barbano at Howard Hanna – https://www.realtor.com/…/6307-Muskrat-Bay-Rd_Brewerton_NY_….

  • Walkthrough Wednesday: Villa Ridge in Radisson

    We are so glad you’ve joined us for this week’s episode of Walkthrough Wednesday with the #NixonPack and Call of the Loon! Today we’re touring a Craftsman style in Baldwinsville, NY, nestled on a sweet little street in the Radisson community! I’m pretty partial to the craftsman style and this was a different spin on it – a little craftsman, a little traditional, and lots of color in between. It’s a 4 bed, 2.5 bath, 2,080 square foot home with a finished basement, beautiful park-like backyard, and all the parks, walking trails, pool and ponds you could ask for just steps from your front door. Inside this one you’ll get some #NixonPack nuggets for future renovations, a few new kitchen designs we’re eyeing, and some fun at the playground! We love hearing suggestions of future Walkthrough Wednesday locations, and this was a great one from Jason Caporiccio of Coldwell Banker. To see more from the Pack, you can follow along on our daily adventures @nixonpack on instagram! As always, we are SO grateful to our video partner Call of the Loon Productions, and to all of YOU for coming along with us each week! What did you think? We’d love to hear in the comments below!

We’d love for you to come along as we tour this new listing at 727 County Route 6 in Volney, NY. From the smiley face on the silo, to racing tractors on this beautiful property (65 acres!) this is one of my favorites to date!

  • Walkthrough Wednesday: Lavender Lane

    Sometimes I wonder why we can’t be a “normal” couple that doesn’t have to worry about offending people with our inappropriate jokes and expressions. I should have put “our” in quotes. We all know who I’m talking about. In this week’s Walkthrough Wednesday we take you on a tour of a brand new build by our friends at JMG Custom Homes, a listing from fellow Realtor Michael Asterino. If JMG rings a bell, it may be because we gush about them often as the builders who brought us on to design the 2018 Parade of Homes in October! We are so excited. In the meantime, you can see some of their work below. That atrium gave me all the feels! And don’t miss the end – we introduce you to a very special guest!

    It’s our favorite day of the week, and we are so grateful you’re coming with us. Our friends at Call of the Loon make this so much fun, and so do you. Truly. As always, THANK YOU for taking time out of your day to watch!
