The Estate Agency

Welcome to the Estate Agency! Before you apply for your new home or business, the estate agent runs you through the rules and regulations of real estate purchasing:
  • The Estate Agency can refuse a business or home application if it does not apply to life in Ioana Valley or Westhaven City. For example, a car dealership would not fare well in the Valley as most of its residents are not able to afford one.
  • The Estate Agency can deny a business if there are too many duplicate shops. For example, there is no need for twenty bars in the village.
  • The Estate Agency asks that business and home applications be as detailed as possible. No less than 3 sentences for business/home descriptions. Please ensure these descriptions are posted in your forum once it is created.
  • Businesses and Homes may be in the same building, but be sure to make that clear in your application. Also this can only occur in the business districts, not the housing districts.
  • After your forum has been created, please post the description as soon as you possibly can! Forums will be deleted during activity checks if there is no description to declare which member they belong to. You can ask a staff member to pin it for you by clicking the 'Staff Attention' button.
For more detailed information on business and home applications, you can visit the following guides:

Forum Location: Aelmere Road
Home Name: Mason Ranch
Forum Description: A ‘fixer-upper’ old house with a large dilapidated barn. The only thing reasonably new are the two large coops out back, swarming with free-range Maran chickens. Tall grasses hide a fairly large man-made pond in the back.
Home Description:

Its several acres of overgrown weeds with a ridiculously large barn cutting a swathe in the fields. Chickens free roam the fields with abandon. Two much newer looking coops sit side by side, far away from the man made pond.

Forum Location: Ioana Valley - Aelmere Road
Forum Name: Drew's Farm
Forum Description: A comparatively newer (though particularly small) cabin lays tucked at the end of a long dirt walkway cutting through largely overgrown open space. The property is bordered by a long, broken and rotting fence on all sides with some trees near the posterior.
Home Description:


A tiny home sits smack dab in the center of a small plot of overgrown land. There is a small space cleared on the west side of the house that has been dedicated to preparing for growing tomatoes. A dirt walkway cuts through fields of wild foliage that has since taken the area back. The entirety of the property is surrounded by a rotting wooden fence that has long-since fallen into disrepair. The house itself has three rooms - a bathroom, an open loft "bedroom" which consists entirely of a mattress pushed against the wall under a window, and an open area that serves as the dining room, kitchen, and sitting room. The fixtures are a bit less dated when compared to some of the others on the street.



Butters the Cat:

Butters is a 3 year old mess of a cat. She has poor balance and is definitely on the dumber end of the spectrum, but she's Drew's little pumpkin and that's all that matters. She's a gigantic nervous chicken and when spooked will start crying uncontrollably until she finds Andrew, after which she requires at least ten minutes of lots of pets to calm down. She treats her cat toys as if they were her babies and makes sure they're all accounted for before curling up for bedtime.

Forum location: Harvest Street
Business Name: Caldwell Grocery
Forum Description: It's been in the family for several generations. Most folks who've been in Ioana for a while know how to find it.
Business Description: Caldwell Grocery has a decent sized storefront with several rooms both in the back and above. Most of the back is used as storage, while the rooms on the second floor host the living spaces for the Caldwell family.

In front of the store, one will usually find a small display of seasonal vegetables, fresh from one or more of the local farms, but it only gets set up on sunny or cloudy days. The front itself is of white wood paneling, with a red awning over the front door and a black shingled roof. A small sign hangs from the awning, with the words "CALDWELL GROCERY" in fading white letters on brown wood.

Inside the store sit several displays, each sporting a different item set. One display is for seasonal fruits, while another holds seasonal vegetables. A third display holds vegetables that can grow year-round. A series of shelves along one wall are where one can find the dry goods; flour, sugar, and other things. The opposite wall has the cold items; dairy products in a closed refrigerator, and a top-open cooler for raw cuts of meat. A smaller display near the door holds a few baked goods, and another small rack displays a small collection of easy-to-grow seeds for the beginner farmer, right beside the register.

Behind the store lies a small storage room, mostly used to catalogue and sort the new deliveries. If one were to go around the side of the building, they would find a second door along the side, an entrance for the family members so they don't have to wander through the store.

Home Description:
Through the back entrance is a simple mud room, with one rack for shoes and one for coats, as well as a laundry hamper for small things like socks. Right off the mudroom is a small guest bedroom with a small bathroom, and next to the guest bedroom is a set of stairs leading to the upper floor.

Guest bedroom:

Upstairs is an open kitchen-living space, with a hall leading to three rather small bedrooms and two bathrooms.

Master suite:

Kurt's room:

Kaylee's room:

A common sight in the store, second only to Emily herself, is the family dog, Sparky. Friendly, fluffy, and fun-loving, Sparky loves to say hello to any and all visitors.

Forum Location: Dreamland Psychic Advisory
Home Name: Teddy Eames's Apartment
Forum Description: A small, one bedroom apartment that sits over Dreamland. It's reached from the back of the store downstairs.
Home Description: While it's secure and well built, Teddy's apartment is rather bland. The walls and floors are the same as the lobby downstairs. The stairs lead up to the left side of the apartment and the door opens immediately into the small living room. Across the room is the entrance to the hallway. Immediately across the hall is a small kitchen with a window over the sink that looks out onto Shadow Street. There's a very small square table with two chairs, a fridge, and an oven/stove combo. Down the hall and to the left is the bedroom. There's a queen sized bed with a plain wooden bedframe, a small closet, and a dark wood chest of drawers. Across the hall from the bedroom is the bathroom.

Teddy isn't particularly fond of his apartment. It's much too bare for his taste, but since he spent most of his budget on decorating Dreamland, he doesn't have much of a choice at the moment. He is unsure as to whether or not he even wants to bother decorating his home as lavishly as he would like, as he doesn't plan on staying in Ioana for very long.

Forum location: Shadow Street
Business Name: Dreamland Psychic Advisory
Forum Description: An unassuming little shop on the outside, or as unassuming as a psychic advisory could be, Dreamland is a two story brick building with neon signs offering psychic help. The first floor is the actual store while the second is Teddy's apartment. Dreamland is closed on Sundays and hours vary throughout the week, though appointments are always welcome.
Business Description:
user posted image

When you first enter, you find yourself in a tiny lobby that's hardly bigger than a walk-in closet. There's an equally tiny desk with an appointment book and cash register along with three mismatched wooden chairs topped with three ornate purple and gold fleur-de-lis throw pillows. The walls are painted a bland beige color and the dark hardwood floors are nothing special. A thick, dark purple velvet curtain separates the lobby from the main room where Teddy, who goes by Morpheus while in his store, tells fortunes and provides psychic help.



Once you step past the velvet curtain, it is almost like walking into a dream. The room is decorated in French Rococo style with ornate blues and golds. A large crystal chandelier hangs from the painted ceiling. Teddy often places vases of flowers throughout the room and often has some sort of candle burning. It isn't what one would typically expect of a place where comes to have their fortune told, but Teddy enjoys the luxuriousness of it.

Home Description:

Cyrus took over his childhood home when his parents decided to move. It's decorated simply, with most of his parents old belongings either stored in the attic or sold off for more traveling money. There are two large bedrooms. Cyrus has stayed in his old bedroom and has left his parents' old room empty. The back yard is where Cyrus spends most of his time and effort, keeping his plants in good shape and the tiny lawn well groomed. ◇ ◇ ◇ ◇

Forum location: Harvest Street
Business Name: Greenleaf Garden Supply
Forum Description: While small in terms of other garden centers, Greenleaf Garden Supply sells a decent array of seasonal seeds, plants, and tools in addition to other garden supplies. Open Monday through Saturday, 10 AM to 7 PM.
Business Description:
user posted image

What was once a large greenhouse was turned into a shop by Cyrus Booker's parents. The smell of soil and plants hits you as soon as you walk in and the air is warm and humid year round. Cyrus tries to keep it as tidy and organized as possible, though it's hard to do with a constant stream of plants moving in and out of stock.

Out back is an where Cyrus starts seeds and grows plants year round. It's generally only open to employees, but if you were to ask nicely, he'd be more than happy to show you around.

His plant stock changes out with each season, and if there is a plant or some other garden related item you want but isn't available, feel free to ask Cyrus and he'll see about ordering it for you.
