A Great Deal of Statistical Extrapolation

A Great Deal of Statistical Extrapolation
If the wind wasn't blowing from the northwest, I dare say it would've been an above-average last day of November. Over these long years of selling real estate, I dare say most of them have been months where we'd experience the slowing down of the market, and once Thanksgiving arrived, there would begin the "quiet time" of our market and not end unt … continue reading

The Mention of a Boulder

The Mention of a Boulder
My first appointment of the day was to take an early drive over to the Floyd County abstract office and deliver an abstract of title to them for continuation. The light cloud cover offered some great views of the countryside, but what I found the most shocking, was seeing all the many corn fields that had not yet been picked, and the only reason I … continue reading

Fire in the Eyes of Many

Fire in the Eyes of Many
Due to Thanksgiving being on a Thursday as it always is, this is the third and final day that's been feeling like a Sunday. Whenever a week day has a holiday thrown in it, and especially if it lands on a Friday, the following day has me thinking it's Sunday. Now that I'm on my third Sunday, I'm more than ready to return to a normal week.My firs … continue reading

Leave Behind Beautiful Memories

Leave Behind Beautiful Memories
Once again, if the northwest wind wasn't blowing, we would've had a pleasant day in our last week of November. In spite of it, I decided to help one of my friends get some outside work done which had become a more urgent project considering our days are getting colder. I thought it was going to take longer, but when there's four hands instead of tw … continue reading

Compliment Him on His Delivery

Compliment Him on His Delivery
After sticking my head out the door this morning, I was delighted to find it not as cold as yesterday which gave me the incentive to get some additional work done without having to bundle myself up like an Eskimo.There were only a few things I needed to get completed at office this morning, and once they were done, I figured I just as well get … continue reading

Deeper Understanding of Giving Thanks

Deeper Understanding of Giving Thanks
When I headed outdoors early this morning, my breath was nearly taken away by the cold, and in spite my knowing it was predicted, my first experience of the season was remarkable. While writing an email to one of my dear friends out East, I mentioned my belief this November is going to go down in my book as being the windiest. Let's hope it doesn't … continue reading

We are in Need of Listings

We are in Need of Listings
My main concern this morning was to get the last one of the five closing files to the finish line, and fortunately we made it before there would've been a long delay on it which would've pushed us into next week. While doing our final walk-thru, and as I'd suspected, there were things left behind in the garage which had my buyer a little angered, a … continue reading

Hours of Intermittent Reflecting

Hours of Intermittent Reflecting
If there was ever a recent day at office I was happy to see come to an end, I'd say today was at the top of the list because of the two back-to-back closings I had which both ended up having a soft landing. Fortunately I had the opportunity to visit with the buyer of the first one, and after listening for a few minutes, I could tell he was the perf … continue reading

She Continued to Remain Resolute

She Continued to Remain Resolute
As I expected, today was one of those yo-yo days were I was continually working at something associated with the five files which we've had scheduled to close this week. Fortunately we managed to get two of the five closed today, and there'll be two more tomorrow, and the last one being on Wednesday which got us under the wire of Thanksgiving and t … continue reading

The Cure for a Sore Spirit

The Cure for a Sore Spirit
My goodness! When is this wind going to stop blowing? I can't remember which Western State it is that's considered the windiest, but after these many days of annoying wind, I think the climatologists had better take another look at the number of windy days we experience on a yearly basis. This climate change is likely the culprit which comes as no … continue reading
