Buyers being Duped

Buyers being Duped
Well, it looks like we're just finishing up with the first-half of 2021, which I'm sure will cause us all to set back and reflect on what we've accomplished, along with possibly chiding ourselves over the things we somehow kept setting aside for another day which then turned into weeks and months. I'm still in a bit of dis-belief June is already go … continue reading

The Aftermath

The Aftermath
Another racehorse day came and went with my stacked appointment being nearly back-to-back. In spite of the hectic pace, I dare say my day ended up being a remarkable one, but unfortunately the humidity and heat this afternoon didn't allow for much if any pleasant time outdoors. I was wondering if our market has become even more intense due to th … continue reading

One’s Core Character

One’s Core Character
It was a very early up and out for me due to my having an early morning appointment at office, but the first thing I had to do, was stop and pick up my sold signs and lockboxes from two listings which were scheduled to close today. By the time I arrived back at office, put everything away and got at least partially situated, my buyers showed up. … continue reading

Three Beer Bottles

Three Beer Bottles
For it being a Sunday, I sure had my plate full of appointments, and all of them real estate related, along with being glad the rain was over and our skies clear again. From what I heard this morning, we received just shy of two inches since the clouds moved in, which certainly gave our many dry fields a good dose of life-saving water. Most of m … continue reading

A High Thread Count

A High Thread Count
I was happy to find rain having finally arrived, but unfortunately I had to change today's plans due to my having scheduled a full day of outdoor labor. Oh well, I did end up the entire time with my real estate hat on instead. My arrival at office was much earlier than normal, and the reason being my having to scan and email to an agent a great … continue reading

Climbing and Vining

Climbing and Vining
It was another scorcher today with the higher temps and humidity, but at least we did get some much-needed rain late this afternoon. Our landscapes are now looking a bit surrealistic with our browned lawns backdropped by green trees and verdant undergrowth. I know there's not much we can do about our lawns, and for sure none of us should be wasting … continue reading

Create an Apron

Create an Apron
Unfortunately, we didn't get our predicted rain, so it looks like our gardeners are going to be out watering again. As I mentioned to someone today, I usually don't plant a large garden only every other or third year, and of course this would have to be my "big garden" year. Oh well, all I can do is make the best of it until we start getting more r … continue reading

My New Listing at 240 – 7th St. SE

My New Listing at 240 – 7th St. SE
As busy as I've been this week, it was seeming more like a Friday instead of a hump day. Oh well, it's just Ok my workload has increased, because it's telling me that I'm making headway with new listings and sales. Oh and by the way, I purposely counted the homes that are now under contract but haven't yet closed in our MLS, and to my shock, there … continue reading

On a Burn

On a Burn
I was ever-so glad it wasn't so hot out today because I was on a burn from the time I arrived at office, and up until I had to call it quits. Isn't it interesting how tolerable summer temps can inspire us to do more than we're used to, and not even notice it? When opening my email this morning, I discovered a message from the agent who had an of … continue reading

The Dawn of Summer Solstice

The Dawn of Summer Solstice
Just by looking at tonight's photo, you can imagine what I was doing prior to 5:30 a.m.this morning, which happened to be my driving around and actively looking for a place to stop and take a few photos of our sunrise. I'll be sharing others, but I thought this one was the most moving because I got the shot just before the sun appeared on the dawn … continue reading
