Determined to Teach

Determined to Teach
This misty cold rain we were getting today was exceptionally annoying considering I had to be out in it more than I wanted to be, but as we all know, we can't have near perfect weather all the time.  I do hope this coming month of May will be more pleasant than it was last year because I felt as though we'd been cheated out of a normal summer.… continue reading

How Kin I

How Kin I
My first duty of the day was to do a final walk-thru on a home that would be closing this morning.  Everything looked good, so I grabbed the keys, pulled my sign, and headed to the office.  As I was driving off and glancing back, I said to myself, "That home is going to work for its new buyers for many years to come."  The people that purchased … continue reading

Parasites of Time

Parasites of Time
With having so much on today's plate, I decided to attend an early church service here in the City.  In spite of leaving soon enough so to place my arrow signs for my open house, I was still about two minutes late for their Services.  So much for my judge of time and distance.The minister gave a very good sermon this morning based on the "dou … continue reading

As expected, first we got the rain, and then the snow started.  It wasn't so bad here in the City, but when driving up to the Forest City area this morning, I was all the more thankful I have a four wheel drive vehicle.  What makes me nervous when driving on those slushy blacktops, is it being harder keep the wheels from being pulled into it.… continue reading

Burn Calories and Not Money

Burn Calories and Not Money
It was quite the interesting day with unexpected phone calls and arrivals at my office to where I was almost ready to check the calendar to see what phase of the moon we're in.   Perhaps it's the changing weather that's bringing out the best and worst in people--including me.I can, but don't want to believe we're expected to get snow tomorrow … continue reading

My First Hint

My First Hint
Thank goodness it stopped raining just before my afternoon appointment arrived to show homes.  When looking at Saturday's weather, I'm all the more glad I scheduled my public open at 725 N. Washington for Sunday instead.  Having the temps hovering around freezing this time of year doesn't make for happy buying experiences.When speaking to an … continue reading

It was almost hot outside when seeing it reaching above 75 degrees this afternoon, and since most of us haven't yet grown accustomed to these rapidly rising temperatures, it felt a whole lot warmer than it really was.My first order of business was getting prepared for a closing that's coming up the first of next week.  I've got pretty much eve … continue reading

Productive Avenue

Productive Avenue
Some of the rooftops and car windows were frosted again this morning which made me all the happier I decided to dress warmly.  In spite of the temperature, I happened to notice a number of people out and about with shorts on which gave me the chills just looking at them.  It would have to get a whole lot warmer than it did today to get me even th … continue reading

Space We Deserve

Space We Deserve
As expected, it was a bit slow in real estate today with it being the Monday after Easter, and that sudden turn from yesterday's beautiful weather to a misty cold rain wasn't helping matters.  Oh well, we have to remember it's still early enough in the season to have days like this.I'm going to be working all the more diligently at getting my … continue reading

Easter Rainbow

Easter Rainbow
I'm hoping you've all had a memorable Easter with family and friends.  The weather was cooperative which should've made it safe for extended travel, and I'd say at least a third of the people I know were doing just that.Living in an age where children usually go where the better jobs are, we find parents traveling to cities like Des Moines, Mi … continue reading
