September’s End

It's really quite interesting how Mother Nature "knows" when it's time to start shedding her Summer robes while reaching for Fall's mantle.  I particularly noticed it today while out on the highway between towns.  All the trees are definitely well on their way to providing us another spectacular show of colors.  It sort of makes me sad Summer di … continue reading

My Shepherd Is

This morning's closing went as smooth as silk and the buyer is now on a burn to get started with a few improvements along with getting moved while the weather is good.  I oft times feel blessed and fortunate to have so many of the nicest buyers and sellers to work with in real estate.  Perhaps it's due to the old saying, "Like attracts like."  I … continue reading

Glorious Fall Evening

After spending several hours of research on properties here in Mason City, I believe I have a half dozen viable candidates for the buyers I'm working with next week.  In comparing prices, I'd say they're all over the map even more so than they were earlier this year.  Thank goodness they're not wanting to look in Clear Lake because their prices a … continue reading

Folded into Darkness

Whenever someone should happen to chide you for supposedly spending so much time running errands, ask them to shadow you the next time you have your list ready.I'm saying this because I spent nearly half the day doing just that and when I looked at the clock after walking back from the post office which was my last stop, I was shocked to see how … continue reading

Breaking Dawn

There wasn't much excitement in the world of real estate today and likely due to the rapid change in our weather.  I'm still in denial of how warm this month has been. Today a customer of mine mentioned one of his friends who watches the weather patterns quite closely, telling him these next two or three months will be markedly warmer than normal. … continue reading

Long Roads Home

An associate of mine laughed when telling him how nice it felt to be back to work and finally able to have a break from my exhausting weekend.  Yes, it wasn't one of those normal Saturday or Sunday putzing days where I'd just relax and do a little of this and that when and if the spirit should move me.Awakening a little earlier than normal, insp … continue reading

Red Pepper Day

Having no real estate appointments outside the office today, I finished up on some of the last of my office work that carried over from yesterday along with making a several calls to clients regarding their listings.  The entirety of the remainder  was spent on a daunting 8 hour project which I did finally finish just before 6:00 p.m.  Looking a … continue reading

Like a Dotard

Well, we made it thru another scorcher of a day.  Around 1:00 p.m., I glanced at the outside temperature gauge of my car and noticed it to be 94 degrees.  The wind was making it all the more unbearable.  Now if we were living in Southern California and they were in the midst of "Santa Anna's", it would feel pretty much the same other than their … continue reading

Repaid in Kind

Seems everyone was feeling the heat today. I personally noticed the thermometer at 94 degrees this afternoon. All the animals seem to be reacting accordingly by staying out of sight and likely hidden somewhere in shaded trees and bushes. With having several appointments in the Downtown today, I decided to walk instead of drive. Those two and three … continue reading

Faces of Jealousy

Another day went racing by with some good things accomplished including getting another one of my listings sold. After looking at my current inventory of un-sold homes, I'd say I'll be getting busy beating the bushes for new listings. This is going to be yet another year where I'm eternally thankful for the business a number of residents in Mason C … continue reading
