A Game of Pool?

A Game of Pool?
It actually got above 60 degrees today and the sun was even shining!  Thank goodness for small miracles, and while I was out on appointments, I noticed a great number of people working in their yards.  It's no wonder they were due to the endless days of rain that just wouldn't stop.  I'm hoping and praying these warmer days and wind will help dr … continue reading

Alas the sun was shining for about four hours today which was better than nothing considering our many days without.  The leaves have certainly been falling all the more since yesterday morning's frost which means we've got some raking to do.Having seen at least ten deer within our city limits today, I'm staying exceptionally hopeful there'll … continue reading

Adieu to Summer

Adieu to Summer
Most of my morning was spent working on getting an acreage sold that was just listed by another office two days ago.   I didn't waste any time getting my buyers in to see it yesterday, and then telling them to have a good talk and sleep over it last night.  Not to many minutes after 9:00  this morning they called to say they wanted to come to m … continue reading

1042 – 1st St. NE
That was quite the turn-about with the weather last night.  We couldn't have had a better example of radical temperature changes.  I just now remembered something I read a number of years ago regarding weather statistics.  At the time, Mason City ranked in the top ten in the Nation per capita as being a city with the greatest temperature differe … continue reading

Well, I'm happy to announce that I made it thru the day without any last minute fires to put out on the multiple, and nearly back-to-back closings I had this morning.  It wouldn't have been so bad if they were all at the same bank or closing companies, but unfortunately, they were across town.At one of the closings, I was in near shock when th … continue reading

As expected, it was a hectic Monday with phone calls, appointments, and a handful of other little to do's.  What caused me extra time and frustration, was when I went to check on one of my vacant listings, and finding the electronic lockbox on the property somehow decided to give me an error code when trying to open it with my code.  Making matte … continue reading

It came as no surprise to see the streets flooding early this morning after being awakened several times in the night by the rain.  To think it's the 20th of September and we're getting this amount of rain, especially knowing this is supposed to be the time when things start drying out.  I drove past the entrance to East Park and wasn't surprised … continue reading

As suspected, today was one of those Friday's were I seemed to be meeting myself coming and going.  But again, I'm glad for it because I have a whole lot of catching up to do with office sales.  Up until about mid-July, sales for my office haven't been as note-worthy as they've been in past years, but suddenly for some reason, things have markedl … continue reading

Thank goodness we're still getting the cooling north breezes to keep the humidity down and hopefully dry things off.  While driving to the office early this morning, I noticed a really creepy patch of ground fog that had collected in a small pasture between two fields of tall corn.  It was actually moving very slowly in a serpentine fashion.  Th … continue reading

Better than Brand New

Better than Brand New
Most of my morning was spent with follow-up correspondence and updating listings.  I had a thick stack of information to get copied and mailed off to a prospective out of town buyer who was asking for it.  I do work at making sure all buyers are given all pertinent information on any and all of my listings.  As far as I'm concerned, the best buy … continue reading
