Wind of a Day

Oh how it's starting to fell like Fall while I'm still wondering where Summer went.  It makes me think of one of the Baltic country's sayings that goes, 'We're always in wait for Summer."  I'm not sure, but I think it's a Lithuanian saying.  When I was younger, I visited Lithuania along with Latvia, Estonia, and Finland.  Whenever thinking abou … continue reading

Tomato with a Heart

There's no question it's been one of those days where the entirety of the hours seemed discordant.  Sometimes when attempting to be a peacemaker, I find myself being pulled from the middle road and at odds with the one I'm trying to help.Earlier today I shared with a colleague a story regarding a particular family I did a great deal of good busi … continue reading

Half Moon over North Iowa

Since I've been so terribly busy these recent days, I finally had time to bring myself up to speed with what's been happening in Texas since hurricane Harvey hit land.  My heart goes out to those poor people having to deal with such devastation from the winds and now the flooding.  I can only imagine what it's going to cost to get their homes and … continue reading

The Throes of Death

I'm glad there wasn't anyone following me around today because they would've likely dropped back and sat a spell waiting to step back in behind me on my way back.  Yes, this was a classic Monday to where I truly felt like the butcher, baker, and candlestick maker.  Every appointment was made, every text was answered, and all phone calls returned … continue reading

Admiration Society

With the exception of a quick showing this afternoon, I was pretty much free to go back to some real menial labor, and at this hour, I'm feeling the physical effects of it.  Irregardless what anyone says, getting out and doing something physical is the best way to get one's mind off their job and all the other day to day stuff that builds up in on … continue reading

Playing with Light

It certainly felt like early Fall when I arrived at the office this morning.  With the exception of several hot weeks this summer, we really didn't have much of an old fashioned one. I still remember all those times at the beginning of the school year when the classrooms were exceptionally warm due to the late August and first part of September te … continue reading

Reasons that are Hidden

It was certainly quite the week of real estate to where I'd say a record number of my listings have been sold.  If the buyers and sellers can come together tomorrow with negotiations taking place on another one of my listings, it for sure will be a week to remember.There was an embarrassing moment or two I created for myself while at one of the … continue reading

Piano Man

It seems the market is continuing to move at a brisk pace this week to where two more of my office listings were sold and possibly two more offers coming in tomorrow on other ones.  Every time I hear someone say, "Oh, I'm not sure if it's the right time to sell."  My reply has been, "In our market, any time is the right time."  In these times I … continue reading

20 – 9th St. NE

If there was ever a day I'd consider having been a productive one, I'd say today was just that one.  From the moment I arrived at the office, to the time I locked up for the night, there were continually positive and forward moving things happening.  It would be great if every day's synergies would be as such, but as we all know, we have to accep … continue reading

Two Hot Listings

It was one of those quirky days where the communications between clients and myself somehow got skewed.  One of my morning appointments didn't show up so I figured he over-slept and would call later saying such, but I found out later he thought I was to meet him at his home.  I looked back on the text messages between the two of us and could see … continue reading
