30 – 2nd St. NE

30 – 2nd St. NE
I’m really hoping for a good turn-out of buyers tomorrow at my open house which will be at 422 S. Tennessee Place here in Mason City.  If there ever was an under-the-radar great value condo listed in our City, this one fits the bill.  I’m pretty confident it’s going to sell to a younger professional or semi-professional who’s looking for … continue reading

Warning of Today

Warning of Today
After reading the news this morning about our government placing sanctions on Russia for their meddling in our 2016 elections, I thought, “About time, and I hope they crank it up even more after finding all the more infiltrations the Russians have done with their protracted cyber espionage.”  I do hope America, Great Britain, and all the other … continue reading

When the Fun Starts

When the Fun Starts
Earlier this morning I had a showing of an acreage up in Worth County.  It was quite the pleasant trip with the roads clear and the sun brightly shining.  With it still early in the  season, most of our farmers are likely still down South or, out West enjoying their winter homes.  You'd be surprised how many of our bigger than big row-crop farm … continue reading

In Our Unreasonable Times

In Our Unreasonable Times
Later this morning I heard stories of cars that ended up in the ditch overnight. I'll never understand why some people drive as if our sun shines 24/7 and the pavements being ever-dry.  They're not just a danger to themselves, but all the more to others.  I also heard that some crazy devil was driving down the middle of a snow covered street befo … continue reading

Horrifically Bad
The most scary thoughts were what must be happening all over our City with our Seniors and their spills during these times. We all know, as humans age, their bones are not as elastic as they were when young, to where even a light fall on a hard surface can create fractures and even breaks.  Hopefully with the first of March being tomorrow, we won' … continue reading

Absolute Laziness

Absolute Laziness
Please don't forget about my public open house tomorrow that's located at 1034 Park Lane here in Mason City.  I'll be there from 1:00 - 3:00 PM, so do tell everyone because it really is a very well built home in a much sought after district of our City.  As far as I'm concerned, it should've been sold right out of the gates, but I have to remembe … continue reading

Another of my appointments today was with the director of Prairie Place on 1st.  We talked about the units remaining, along with the number of people that've been showing interest, but not stepping forward to make offers.  We decided it's the time of the year as well as this crazy weather that's been holding them back.  During these bitterly col … continue reading

Sun Breaking

Sun Breaking
Early this morning I made a quick trip to one of my favorite out-of-town church services.  While on my way, I happened to notice how there were two layers of clouds in the sky.  One small fast moving group which was hanging very low, and the other being very high.  One stretch of those upper ones had the look of a wide band of a jet trail.  For … continue reading

Better With Age

Better With Age
The hours of my day went flying by quite quickly with all my scheduled errands around the City.  One of my stops was at a home so to get some exterior and interior photos taken.  What an exceptionally comfortable home!  After finishing up with my room shots, I told the owner it was no surprise it sold before I could even my get photos taken.… continue reading

Covered All Sides

Covered All Sides
I had another "soft landing" closing today on a home which had a number of offers on it over the months, but couldn't seem to get together on price.  I'm just happy the sellers are content with what it sold for so they can now move on with their lives.  Since the ground is still frozen solid, after about 20 minutes of work, I did manage to get my … continue reading
