1141 is Certainly the One

1141 is Certainly the One
It came as no surprise to see the streets flooding early this morning after being awakened several times in the night by the rain.  To think it's the 20th of September and we're getting this amount of rain, especially knowing this is supposed to be the time when things start drying out.  I drove past the entrance to East Park and wasn't surprised … continue reading

Spanish Revival Architecture

Spanish Revival Architecture
As suspected, today was one of those Friday's were I seemed to be meeting myself coming and going.  But again, I'm glad for it because I have a whole lot of catching up to do with office sales.  Up until about mid-July, sales for my office haven't been as note-worthy as they've been in past years, but suddenly for some reason, things have markedl … continue reading

Thank goodness we're still getting the cooling north breezes to keep the humidity down and hopefully dry things off.  While driving to the office early this morning, I noticed a really creepy patch of ground fog that had collected in a small pasture between two fields of tall corn.  It was actually moving very slowly in a serpentine fashion.  Th … continue reading

Better than Brand New

Better than Brand New
Most of my morning was spent with follow-up correspondence and updating listings.  I had a thick stack of information to get copied and mailed off to a prospective out of town buyer who was asking for it.  I do work at making sure all buyers are given all pertinent information on any and all of my listings.  As far as I'm concerned, the best buy … continue reading

Deep Price Reductions

Deep Price Reductions
Being it already mid-week, I'd say there's been a great amount of real estate activity for our office, but on the down-side, I'll have to admit there was great dis-appointment when hearing after two weeks of waiting and wondering, a particular buyer working with another Realtor, decided at the last moment against placing an offer on one of my listi … continue reading

The Place to Be

The Place to Be
I'd say this was a Monday to be remembered with the number of appointments I had scheduled along with the number of phone calls and drop-ins.  I did manage to make them all, with the exception of being 10 minutes late for one this morning due to an extended phone call.  This week may possibly go down as being my "listing" week since there were tw … continue reading

A Rage to Live

A Rage to Live
It didn't come as any surprise to find myself standing on a ladder near a roof's edge this morning.  Curious me always has to have a look at what others are seeing.  I was reminded how much easier it is to climb up a ladder than it is to come down.  As much as we're told not to look down, we always have to get a peek which then creates the fear … continue reading

It wasn't such a bad day heat wise until mid-afternoon arrived.  Thank goodness I had most of my out-of-office appointments taken care of before it got so hot.  My last appointment took me to Manly on a showing which didn't last very long.  It was another one of those homes that looked far bigger to the buyers online than what it really was.  O … continue reading

We’ve Forgotten

We’ve Forgotten
I hope everyone had an enjoyable 4th of July.  The sounds of fireworks were being heard well into the night.  I didn't venture over to Clear Lake in fear there would be another rain storm happening, so I stayed home and enjoyed the evening.It was pretty quiet at my office today, and from what I've been hearing, there've been a number of peopl … continue reading

I was warned today about tomorrow's forecasted high temperatures and I think it's already starting.  Since the afternoon arrived, I could tell the humidity levels were really getting high, and with there being no wind to speak of, makes it all the worse.  It's not going to be a fun day for me because I'm booked nearly solid with appointments the … continue reading
