Newbies to River City

Newbies to River City
My first appointment today was an 8:00 a.m. showing at my new listing at 1603 S. Hoover.  I arrived about ten minutes before the hour just in case the buyer arrived early, and wouldn't you know it, he was just coming around the corner as I pulled up.The showing went well, but I'm not so sure it's going to be the right fit for him because of th … continue reading

1603 S. Hoover Ave.

1603 S. Hoover Ave.
Yes, our mornings are getting colder, but at least they warm up to near perfect temperatures once the sun starts making a run for it.  For the strangest reason, there was all the more traffic in and around our Downtown this morning, and the only thing I could think of, was there being more people getting prepared for our 3 day weekend.After ge … continue reading

A Wild Card

A Wild Card
My first order of the day was to get out to one of my listings and remove the lock box from the front door and then pull the yard sign because it was going to be closing during the first hour the buyer's bank opened.Since my seller was on her way out of State, I made sure all the transfer documents were correct before she left,  just so we did … continue reading

Out in the Ditches

Out in the Ditches
Perhaps I'm sounding like a broken record when mentioning how beautiful it was outdoors the entire day, and you can bet I found every reason to linger a little longer when out and about in its grandeur.  Just so I could enjoy even more fresh air and clear skies, I allowed myself to listen to an older gentleman berate our City in every fashion, sta … continue reading

A Big Hole

It was certainly a pleasant day with the sun and cooling north wind.  By the time noon rolled around, there were all the more strollers out and about in our Downtown.  In spite it being the last week of August, this weather feels more like the first half of September.My morning came and went in a whoosh with all the places to be and people to … continue reading

But a Smidgen

But a Smidgen
Thank goodness the gray skies didn't hang around after the rain this afternoon.  For a while there, those clouds looked almost like big puffs of smoke.  At least we can say we got enough to get everything wet.  The cooling north wind has been a delight these days, but I don't even want to think about what this coming winter is going to be like. … continue reading

Down Dark Paths

Down Dark Paths
Since I had much on my plate today, I decided to take in an early Service at one of our area churches.  I got there just in time to find a seat which a few may have thought me a bit strange when just getting ready to step into one of them, then quickly altering my path and ending up in a front-row seat.The only reason I decided at the last mom … continue reading

Your Dreams Have Come Alive

Your Dreams Have Come Alive
When knowing I was going to have a full day, I busied myself early this morning with many of my own little jobs just so I would have at least a few things done before noon arrived.   It was yet another beautiful day in North Iowa once the sun started warming things up.The first thing I did after I arrived at my office, was to take a broom and … continue reading

Block-long Stretch of Pavers

Block-long Stretch of Pavers
Without prior notification, I was alerted today that the buyer of one of my listings wants to close weeks before it was scheduled.  For heaven's sake!  You can bet I was racing to get all the closing numbers over to the bank along with alerting the seller that she'll have to be available next week for signatures.  As chance would have it, the ap … continue reading

Just Another Zip Code

Just Another Zip Code
It was quite the chilly one out this morning which was another reminder to us all that our days are growing shorter and Fall will soon be upon us.  I think more people are finally kick-starting themselves and getting their over-due outdoor projects underway before we re-enter the deep freeze.As I was pulling up to my office this morning, the p … continue reading
