Deep Price Reductions

Deep Price Reductions
Being it already mid-week, I'd say there's been a great amount of real estate activity for our office, but on the down-side, I'll have to admit there was great dis-appointment when hearing after two weeks of waiting and wondering, a particular buyer working with another Realtor, decided at the last moment against placing an offer on one of my listi … continue reading

The Place to Be

The Place to Be
I'd say this was a Monday to be remembered with the number of appointments I had scheduled along with the number of phone calls and drop-ins.  I did manage to make them all, with the exception of being 10 minutes late for one this morning due to an extended phone call.  This week may possibly go down as being my "listing" week since there were tw … continue reading

A Rage to Live

A Rage to Live
It didn't come as any surprise to find myself standing on a ladder near a roof's edge this morning.  Curious me always has to have a look at what others are seeing.  I was reminded how much easier it is to climb up a ladder than it is to come down.  As much as we're told not to look down, we always have to get a peek which then creates the fear … continue reading

It wasn't such a bad day heat wise until mid-afternoon arrived.  Thank goodness I had most of my out-of-office appointments taken care of before it got so hot.  My last appointment took me to Manly on a showing which didn't last very long.  It was another one of those homes that looked far bigger to the buyers online than what it really was.  O … continue reading

We’ve Forgotten
I hope everyone had an enjoyable 4th of July.  The sounds of fireworks were being heard well into the night.  I didn't venture over to Clear Lake in fear there would be another rain storm happening, so I stayed home and enjoyed the evening.It was pretty quiet at my office today, and from what I've been hearing, there've been a number of peopl … continue reading

I was warned today about tomorrow's forecasted high temperatures and I think it's already starting.  Since the afternoon arrived, I could tell the humidity levels were really getting high, and with there being no wind to speak of, makes it all the worse.  It's not going to be a fun day for me because I'm booked nearly solid with appointments the … continue reading

Without question, today was one of the busiest Mondays I've had in a very long time.  It seemed as though I were in some sort of surrealistic world where I was continuously racing against the clock.It all started with my early appointment to show 801 W. Main in Fertile.  The showing went very well considering the amount of time spent at the p … continue reading

Think Twice

Think Twice
I'd say this was a Saturday that'll be well remembered.  From the time I hit the pavement early this morning, It ended up being a non-stop day of mental and physical work.  In spite of several great disappointments, I'm still eternally thankful for my loyal and faithful clients and customers who've kept me in business all these years.  They all … continue reading

Untold Good News

Untold Good News
What in the world are we going to do with all this rain we've been getting?  It seems like a vicious cycle that was created earlier this Spring beginning with all the snow we received in April and May.  People can't even get out in their yards to mow because their lawns are so soggy.  What was even more creepy cool, was when a client of mine tol … continue reading

In a Patch of Green

In a Patch of Green
My morning started with getting some correspondence returned to several clients, along with doing some postings of listings on the internet.  I finally got into measure and take photos of 1104 - 16th St. NE here in Mason City.  What I found interesting about the home, is that I dare say I've not been in one with its layout.  It might appear to s … continue reading
