We have all been counting down to nice weather and we think that it is finally here. That's right people.. it's patio season! Dayton is full of little gems that have some awesome drinks, great food, and the perfect patio to enjoy it all on. Here are the Top 5 patios in Dayton (in our opinion):
Why? This little patio hideaway takes you away from the hustle and bustle of the Oregon District and puts you into your own little secluded world. It is great during the day and ever prettier at night. If you go here, get the Herbie Dip & Potato Chips
Where? 530 E 5th St, Dayton, OH 45402
Why? DBC recently opened a newer location in Dayton and they made sure that it was ideal for patio lovers. It has a lot of seating and is dog friendly! If you go here, get a flight. They are always showcasing new and different beers so why not try them all!
Where? 41 Madison St, Dayton, OH 45402
Why? That outdoor seating here feels like you have been transported to a columbian oasis. With plants and flowers surrounding you, it's hard not to forget where you are. If you go here, get the Manchego Puffs and accompany it with their award winning drink, the Spicy Cockatoo.
Where? 903 E Dixie Dr, Dayton, OH 45449
Why? This new hot spot was built in an old bank in downtown Miamisburg. The Patio looks over the city square and the jazz music coming from inside will keep you entertained for hours. If you go here, try out their PB&J Martini or signature Old Fashion.
Where? 23 E. Central Ave., Miamisburg, OH 45342
Why? "Dub Pub" has a large ground floor patio as well as an upstairs patio giving you twice the patio options! If you are lucky enough to snag one of the couches upstairs, you won't want to leave. If you go here, get some cheese fries and some Irish whiskey to wash them down.

We represent our clients to the best of our ability with their best interests at heart.
I absolutely love getting to meet new people and to help them achieve their goals! And I love homes. I have always been in the housing business, it's just my thing!
My parents have been in the Real Estate business for 30 years. They have done flipping, rentals, renovations, etc. I started working on renovations and helping my parents manage when I was 16!
Never feel like you cant ask questions! No question is a dumb question! You are making a huge decision for yourself and/or your family. You have worked hard to pursuit your dream of buying a home and have every right to ask questions that help make your home purchasing experience a good one!
The market is unlike anything I have ever seen before. Now is the time to sell and/or buy if you have been thinking about it.
I cherish every free moment that i get! I live spending time with my beautiful daughter Presley and my pretty stinkin' amazing Husband, Jake. We love to take walks, have tea parties, and dance offs with our sweet girl. We also love serving as leaders in our church and are there as often as we can be!
I love building puzzles! I secretly love to say "secretly" a lot! I could totally eat quesadillas everyday! And I am already counting down until Christmas!!!
If you are looking for someone who knows the industry and city inside and out and truly wants to help, then call Miranda!
Memorial Day officially kicks off the summer around Dayton. Pools open, school is letting out, and the festivals and festivities start. It is hard to keep all of the different activities and events straight so we have attempted to compile a list to help!

Did you ever see The Bee Movie? Remember how important bees were to our lives? Well.. sadly they are dying and at record rates. This is not exactly good news. According to Alexandria Zissu " One out of every three mouthfuls of food in the American diet is, in some way, a product of honeybee pollination—from fruit to nuts to coffee beans. And because bees are dying at a rapid rate (42 percent of bee colonies collapsed in the United States alone in 2015), our food supply is at serious risk."
One way you can help is by making your yard bee friendly.
It is easy to make a big difference, and your yard will look beautiful for it! Help save the bees.
This month we are highlighting Claire Eggert! She is one of the real estate agents at Loxley Martin and a good one at that. If you are looking for someone who is full of personality, has your best interest in mind, and will make sure to get you what you want, she is your girl!
I started as an independent agent and it wasn’t taking me where I was hoping it would. I decided to give the team dynamic a try and it has proven to be one of the best decisions of my life.
I love helping people buy homes when they never thought they’d have the means to (not a high enough credit score, not enough money, too much debt, etc). Seeing how excited people get during their final walkthrough helps me to thrive and remember why I wanted to get into this business.
Find a Realtor you can trust before you start looking around. That way, if your Realtor gives you suggestions for mortgage lenders, home inspectors or anyone else for that matter, you can be assured that he/she is looking out for your best interested rather than their own. Choose to work with someone you can form a bond with and communicate well, as you will both need to be responsive throughout the purchasing process.
The market is HOT and moving so very quickly. If you aren’t pre-approved for a loan or financially ready to make the purchase before you begin looking at houses, you will end up disappointed. Many homes are being sold for over asking price, and some to buyers who haven’t even seen the home yet because they don’t want to miss out. If you’re in the market to buy, make sure you and your Realtor are diligent about looking at homes as soon as they come on the market to avoid losing your possible dream home.
I enjoy exercising and couponing in my spare time. (It saves ridiculous amounts of money!)
I have a fiancé and a 6 year old daughter. The joy I feel by caring for them financially and emotionally gets me through the Real Estate “off season”. There are certain times of the year where everything just slows down almost to a snail’s pace, but my family keeps me motivated and always pushing to find those who need my assistance.
If you are ready to sell your current home and get into the one you have been dreaming about, give Claire a call!
