Grand Lake Real Estate, Cari Williams, Broker

Love Life, Live Grand! Allow me, Cari Williams, to find your perfect vacation or retirement home at Oklahoma's crown jewel, Grand Lake o' the Cherokees!

[03/05/15]   A very special THANK YOU to the person that nominated me for Best Realtor in the Grove Sun! My clients aren't just business to me--they are friends that feel like family, relationships I hope to keep for life! Love Life, Live Grand!!!

[03/05/15]   Real estate is booming again at Grand! I've sold 4 houses in the last 30 days and have some great new listings coming this month. Welcome Back Weekend at Grand is this weekend--and spring break is coming up! Everybody has cabin fever from a gloomy winter, but help is on the way! See you at the lake!!

[07/23/14]   Lots of greats (nieces) and grands (children) visiting this month. It reminds me so much of when the kids were little, so excited to go out on the boat, swim in the lake, tube, eat peanut butter and jelly sandwiches by the boatload! The kids have often said Grand Lake was the best gift we ever gave them--and I'm so happy to share it with their children! Sometimes I think our little ones are so overbooked with activities that they're missing out on the things that really matter--family time and picnics and chilling on the beach next to an ice chest. You don't have to have a boat--a blowup raft is perfect. I'm so grateful for those memories, and so incredibly blessed to be creating new ones with the Treasures! Love life, live Grand!!

[07/15/14]   The Monkey Island Fire Department fundraising campaign for emergency/tornado sirens is off to a great start--$10,000 raised so far!! Make plans to attend the Monkey Island Association's fundraising pancake breakfast at The Shebang on Saturday, August 9th!!

[07/15/14]   Congratulations to Shangri-La Marina and Boat Sales for being named the Best New Chris Craft Dealer in the World!!!! Really great work and more good news on Grand!!!

[07/05/14]   Loving Life, Living Grand!! So great to have some of the kids and grandkids home for the holiday--even if Pap and I did have to work! But our kiddos grew up here and they understand that losing out on a holiday is worth the price of living here. Don't miss the Monkey Island Fireworks tonight! They are spectacular! And I'm proud to be an American!!!!

Dow Tops 17,000 For First Time

Great news for Grand and the U.S.!!! Let the fireworks begin!! * Dow tops 17,000 for first time; S&P 500 near 2,000 * Nasdaq closes at highest since 2000 * U.S. June jobs report well above forecasts * PetSmart rallies as hedge fund seek sale * Dow u...

[06/29/14]   Soooooo excited about 4th of July at Grand Lake!!! My family's best memories are all on Monkey Island--family and friends at Susan and Terry Graham's cookout and fireworks show--and Monkey Island fireworks on Saturday!!! Love life, live Grand!

[06/28/14]   Remember that "dream lake house" in Port Duncan I told you about? 11 East Wichita, 3 bed, 2-l/2 bath, two levels both with great decks, AND a two slip dock with this amazing sundeck on top! We had the home pre-inspected by Doug Smith (Grand Lake's most professional home inspector--he really pays attention), and though there were only minor repairs, ALL THE REPAIRS HAVE BEEN MADE!! This place is partially furnished, has all the kitchenware ready for you, and it is MOVE IN READY!!! I'm holding an open house tomorrow from 1-3--drive through the entry at Port Duncan, take the first right, then turn right at Airport Road, follow around the curve, then left on Wichita. Be there or be square!! (I'm showing my age again, aren't I?)

[06/28/14]   And good buys get even greater at Grand Lake!!! Brighton Bay #59 was just reduced to $379,000--this is a fantastic waterfront 3 bed/2 ba home with gorgeous view in a quiet cove--and it has a 36' slip and pwc dock!!! This has got to be the best buy on Grand Lake. Brighton Bay is a serene, park-like gated community with every amenity your family and friends could want--swimming pool, swim dock in the cove, tennis, volleyball, basketball, two children's playgrounds, nestled among wooded areas and "deer" friends! Call Cari at 918-541-6112--you don't want to miss this!!

Love Life, Live Grand!! Cari

[06/20/14]   After spending way, way too much time trying to crop my photo, (forget special effects--not a one said "will make you look 15 pounds lighter and 10 years younger")--reposition it, and take Facebook-imposed text off my logo, I've decided to click "save" and move on to more cost effective enterprises!! "Like" this post if you've ever felt like your technology owns you--and doesn't appreciate you!! Lol!! Thanks for looking at my page! Should have my "website" up in the next few days (thanks Brandon Dawson--you're the best)!! Love Live, Live Grand!!!

[06/20/14]   Everyone has been asking about the planned Bolt Fiber Optics project bringing high speed internet/phone/tv capability to Monkey Island and Grand Lake. Here is your chance to find out the details. Please pass this information along to the appropriate person to ensure that your residential area has a representative at the meeting to get the details. (Please note: Vista Towers will have a separate meeting at a later date. Watch here for details!)

Northeast Rural Services, Inc. (NRS), a subsidiary service of Northeast Oklahoma Electric Cooperative, is in the process of deploying over 3,000 miles of fiber optic cable in northeast Oklahoma. The fiber network will be constructed in three one-year phases. The Monkey Island area is in the first phase of the project.

BOLT's fiber project will deliver high speed gigabit internet and digital HD TV. Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP) telephone service will also be available through a third-party provider.

A brief meeting will be held at:

6:30 p.m. Monday, June 23
Shangri-La Golf Club
Charles Davis Room
31000 South Highway 125
Monkey Island, OK

We are kindly asking each homeowners' association on Monkey Island to send a representative to the meeting. Those attending will hear an overview of the project as well as how construction will be carried out in each development.

Seating for this meeting is limited. Please call Melanie at 918-256-9487 to let us know you will be able to attend.

[06/15/14]   Happy Father's Day! While it began with a heavy rainstorm, Grand Lake couldn't be more beautiful today! Come by my office and allow me to help you find the life you deserve, and the memories your family will treasure forever! Love Life, Live Grand!! Love my family and friends!! Monkey Island Rocks!
