I was surprised to see it raining again, but at least it cleared off and evolved into a beautiful day which all of us so much deserve.  That cooling north wind is definitely keeping the humidity down which means we're in store for a pleasant evening.My first appointment today was to write an offer for a young gentleman who's planning on purcha … continue reading

The first item on my agenda this morning was to get my tent signs out for tomorrow's public open house over at Prairie Place on 1st.  I'm pushing all the more for public awareness of my listings via the internet and signage because I've recently come to the conclusion that I'm throwing far too much money down a proverbial rat hole when advertising … continue reading

I'm happy to announce that the buyer I've been working with this past month, did manage to get a home purchased today. It has been a long journey of looking, but I believe she ended up with the best home for the money in our market.What I really appreciated about working with her, was her great intelligence to where she not only looked for a ho … continue reading

Thank goodness the rain didn't arrive until after today's public open house ended.  I knew it was forecasted, but I thought it was to be later.  As chance would have it, the sprinkling started just as I was locking up.Without a doubt, it was a great success considering the number of people in attendance, and for sure there was more than one g … continue reading

It didn't surprise me in the least when finding we had rain again last night and not just because of the high temps yesterday, but also how thick the air was.  For me, that's usually an indication a storm front will be moving in.  What really surprised me was hearing that St. Ansgar got over two inches in the night, which is telling us again how … continue reading

Alas the wind stopped blowing which allowed an absolutely beautiful day to unfold here in North Iowa.  I was keen on spending as much time outdoors just so to savor as many moments possible.I had few things to do at the office early this morning before heading off to my first little project of the day.  When I pulled up, I happened to notice … continue reading

Perhaps just maybe, it's going to warm up and stay there from here on out, and if the clouds had stayed away, I'd say it would've been a near perfect day.  Let's hope our entire Memorial Day weekend's weather will be at its best.  And to think we're a little less than a month away from the sun starting its journey south again.  When saying this, … continue reading

This weather has been absolutely crazy these past several days when considering it being the 19th of May and our temps hovering around the 50's all day.  While driving to the office, I noticed just about everyone's sump pumps belching water at their curbsides.There were two homes I had to show today, and wasn't a bit surprised to find water in … continue reading

In spite of several people thinking it was going to rain again today, I was happy my personal suspicions were confirmed when finding we didn't get even a drop.  You can be sure there were puddles and ponds to be seen around the area as I was driving to work.  That downpour we had last night was wicked to the point of my wondering if we were all g … continue reading
