More about We

More about We
It looks like we're getting pounded again with the storms.  The first one that came thru was almost as bad as the last big one we had when seeing the sheets of rain coming down.  I don't know about anywhere else, but we did also get some hail in the Downtown. As I was driving home from Fertile late yesterday afternoon, I noticed all the many more … continue reading

Wall of Water

Wall of Water
I'm certainly glad to find Friday coming to a close.  Without question, it has been a quite the challenging week for me.  But, as they say, "If it doesn't kill you, it just makes you grow all the stronger."  These past hot and humid days haven't helped in the least bit.  I'm still convinced people get all the crabbier when it's humid out, than … 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

Stories to Tell

Stories to Tell
I'm sure everyone was pleased to see the sun today instead of the overcast skies we seem to have been cursed with this summer.  I can say for sure the weeds are sure liking all this rain and humidity.  I don't think I've ever seen so many healthy weeds around our City.  For most, it's been a battle just to keep their yards mowed.  My prediction … continue reading

Spirit of Gratefulness

Spirit of Gratefulness
I would say in these past days, there's been a spike in the calls from prospective buyers, along with other agents showing my office listings.  Perhaps the momentum of buying will continue on into the month of July.  The price ranges that I've seen the most activity, are those in the $100K+ and $200K plus ranges.  As I've suspected all along, th … 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

A Full Understanding

A Full Understanding
My first little job of the day was to play the organ and piano at St. Paul Lutheran Church here in Mason City.  Since I'd been so busy with work these past weeks, I had nearly no time to practice the hymns they supplied me earlier this month.  Thank goodness I had time to run thru them before today's Service started.  I was surprised the music s … 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

Lemon Meringue

Lemon Meringue
Thank goodness the sun finally began peeking out from behind the clouds today.  I told a couple from out of town who were closing on a property, "With your arrival as new homeowners to our fair City, you've possibly broken this weather curse we've had hanging over our heads since, simply because the sun started to shine when you arrived."  I'm ho … 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
