“Fall Back” gives you an “extra” hour to sleep in, however, we still have houses to look at! Before the time change, we were able to view properties later in the day with more sunlight. Now that we don’t have as much sunlight, we need to make a few adjustments.


Bring a Flashlight with You to Showings

This is to help you view the house if there is no power. This will also help as you walk up and down outdoor stairways.

Drive-by Neighborhood During Day-Time

If our appointment is in the evening, and if time allows it, take a look at the neighborhood during the day time to see what the house looks like. Sure, the pictures online help, however, seeing a home in person can be different than what the photos portray.

Adjust Showing Schedule

At one point, maybe you were only available to see houses after 6:00 pm. Is there another time that could possibly work?


Adjust Showing Schedule if Needed

Maybe you were able to show your home later in the evening before the time-change, but need to adjust due to difficultly driving at night, adjustment to bedtime schedules, etc.

Turn on All Lights for Buyers

Not only will your house make a great first impression, but this will make the most effective use of showing time.

With just a few little adjustments, you can still be on your way to selling/buying your home!

Kelly Raulston

“Reliable and Ready” REALTOR® since 2016. I was born in Monroeville, Pennsylvania, but was raised in Texas since 1997. When I found out we were moving to Plano, Texas, I remember looking forward to riding a horse to school and a brand-new pair of cowboy boots! Growing up in Plano prepared me to be competitive, quick, and to have a strong work ethic. I graduated from Stephen F. Austin State University in Nacogdoches, Texas. Axe’em Jacks! That is where my love for East Texas began. The nature, warm smiles, football games, and community values can't be beat! I graduated summa cum laude with a degree in Interdisciplinary Studies. I was a middle school math teacher in Tyler, Texas. I met my husband, Travis, in Sunday school, and we have been married since September 2016. I love being a REALTOR® in East Texas! Relationships are genuine, the area is beautiful, and the market is rockin’! I am an involved REALTOR® to better the community. Some of the organizations I am involved with are: The Professional Development Committee, Texas Real Estate Political Action Committee, and Tyler Educational Networking Group. Some awards I have won were “The Hustle Award” in 2016, and “Rookie of the Year” in 2017. When I am not working with my clients, I like to spend quality time with my friends and family doing the following: running, target practice, read and participate in book club, and playing with my dachshund Greta.
