Re-visiting 207 N. Hampshire

Re-visiting 207 N. Hampshire
With an early appointment on my calendar, I hurried to office to get myself prepared for it. While on my way, I paid special attention to the condition of various yards I could see while driving. I know I've mentioned it before, but again I just can't believe how lazy some people are growing when looking at the many un-tended landscapes in our City … continue reading

A Bygone Age

A Bygone Age
The morning haze we had was a bit unsettling and especially due to the smell of wood burning in the air. Those fires out West must be something off-worldly to where we can smell the smoke which was created well over a thousand miles away. Pretty scary isn't it?I had to make a couple of stops this morning to check on a few vacant homes, along wi … continue reading

1910 S. Georgia Ave.

1910 S. Georgia Ave.
It was quite the beginnings of a wicked-weather day when shortly after my arrival at office, having noticed the sky growing so dark, all the street lights turned on. When getting a better look, one could've sworn it suddenly turned twilight. I can imagine how many people had water seeping into their basements after today's rain. I wouldn't doubt by … continue reading

Three Times a Day

Three Times a Day
It sure was a rapid change of weather we had with the rain and much lower temps, and certainly glad about that because it's been quite the run of hot days we've had. I was in a bit of shock to see how fast the grass had grown in just one day's time. The most beneficial thing about our recent rain, was how lightly it was coming down. Yes, that was a … continue reading

The Lasting Legacy

The Lasting Legacy
Welcome to the fiery month of July which for those back in the pre-Christian times, was the month where the sun burned brighter, which nurtured the growth of their life-sustaining crops, and in the end, allowing them to have enough food to make it thru those cold winter months. With the pagan practices of celebrating the solstice of summer, ushered … 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

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

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

Catty-Cornered

Catty-Cornered
Another repeat of yesterday's heat and dryness came and went, and while driving to work early this morning, I was noticing all the more burned lawns which is makings of a not so beautiful June. If this weather pattern continues, can you imagine what the months of July and August are going to be like? I'm sorry to say, I have to water my struggling … continue reading

Not One Response

Not One Response
In spite of not having any rain last night, I was certainly glad the wind changed directions, and with it coming from the north, made it all the less hot and humid. After getting a good look at some of our lawns, there were some grass spots definitely going into hibernation, and will remain as such until we get some rain, as it's the only way in wh … continue reading
