Sara Hall

Sara Hall, licensed assistant to Terry Cobb of Kirk & Cobb, is going all in – literally. Hall will be swimming in the Sunflower States Games on Sunday, July 12. “I love swimming!” said Hall. “I started swimming competitively at age eight and continued until I was 18. Now I just swim for fun and exercise.”

Hall’s passion for swimming is quite visible. She is the assistant coach of the Briarwood summer swim team. “Once the season started, I got really excited about swimming in a meet again,” said Hall. “I’ve been swimming at the YWCA for a while just for exercise, but recently I’ve been going a lot more trying to get ready for the games.”

Hall’s first meet starts at 9:15 AM at the Capitol Federal Natatorium at Hummer Sports Park. She will be swimming in five different events plus a relay: 50 freestyle, 100 freestyle, 100 IM, 200 IM, and 100 butterfly.

“This will be my first real meet in 16 years,” said Hall. “I’m a little nervous!”

Food & Diaper Drives in Full Swing!

Kirk & Cobb is currently participating in two separate community projects. You are invited to help us!

1. We will collect canned goods and non-perishable food items through October 31. The items will ultimately be delivered to the Topeka Rescue Mission. The food drive is an annual contest between Washburn University and Emporia State University. Each school is competing to collect the most food for their cities’ food pantries. Kirk & Cobb and the Topeka Area Association of REALTORS® are proud to help Washburn “can Emporia” each year. Will you help us? Please consider dropping off a can or two or ten at our office at 2810 SW Gage.

2. Kirk & Cobb is a drop-off location for the Junior League of Topeka’s Diaper Depot project. New and opened packages of diapers of any size can be dropped off at our office. Diapers will be used by babies in Shawnee County. Sizes 3 and 4 are of the greatest need.

Refi or Buy

Interest rates are at record lows. If you have been thinking about upgrading or moving for any reason, we’re here to help you know what your fair market value is as well as determine which improvements and repairs might be worth investing in to help sell your home.

Don’t worry if you’re not sure you’re going to sell. Our job is to help you know if it’s possible. We can provide information to you regarding the possible sale of your home, connect you with a lender to discuss the possibilities of refinancing versus qualifying for a new mortgage, and then let you decide whether you’re ready.

A piece of advice: Historically, our market has seen a second peak in sales during late summer to early fall. If you’ve been considering making the move, now is the time to start the process so you’re ready for the second rush of buyers in September.

Perhaps you have no intentions of moving. If you intend to stay in your home for several years and the interest on your mortgage is higher than current rates, refinancing may make sense for you. Every situation is different. We would be happy to recommend a local trusted lender if you would like to see if refinancing is a good idea for you. Just call us.
