Reaching for Excellence

Reaching for Excellence
At least it was cooler outdoors today which was a welcome relief from yesterday's humidity and temps.  I've been reminded more than once this summer how thankful I am to be in an office building with tall ceilings and good air circulation via the number of transoms which are contained within.  I can see how people back before air conditioning was … continue reading

It would've been a near perfect day if the humidity hadn't been as high, but at least it didn't get up into the high 80's.  After having an extended appointment yesterday, and another one this afternoon, I'd say I'm already on overtime for this week, but as we Realtors know, you gotta make hay when the sun shines.Fortunately, we did manage to … continue reading

A Gothic Novel
This morning's showers were unexpected, but I guess they were needed for our fields and gardens.  We should consider ourselves fortunate for not living in other areas of our State, because those locales are under drought conditions.  It just so happened I was speaking to someone today about the changes in our weather patterns to where we both agr … continue reading

When knowing I didn't have any immediate appointments scheduled this morning, I made a few rounds at my vacant listings, just to make sure all was well. While driving thru different districts, I couldn't help but notice how scruffy the yards of many homes were beginning to look which made me sad, because a generation or more ago, there were all the … continue reading

There were a few who believed today's temperatures were too cool, but for me it was near perfect.  Yes, we have those sun worshipers who like to lounge around in full sun waiting to get another seasonal body-bake, which is definitely not my cup of tea.I have absolutely no clue what inspires people with northern European tones to punish their e … continue reading

My first showing began as early as 8:30 am, and my last one ended a little before 5:00 pm.My early appointment was with a delightful young couple I've been working with, and unfortunately they ju … continue reading

We certainly had a marked temperature spike today when finding it in the upper 70's.  Since I dressed warmly this morning, there were a few times I was feeling more than a bit uncomfortable.  Believe me, I'm not complaining in the least bit, because as far I'm concerned, it can stay this way until Christmas.  After listening to the many comments … continue reading

This morning was somewhat of a rush with appointments as well as getting the final docs rounded up on a sale that's closing tomorrow.  I always get a bit nervous whenever not having all required docs accounted for a day or two before.I was a tiny bit annoyed with the closing agent for not having started working on the numbers until the morning … continue reading

Oh Mercy!  We certainly had our workout with the snow today.  I'm not sure how much we ended up getting, but it was more than enough to keep me busy shoveling.  Thank goodness it wasn't so heavy because there must've been another six inches or more dropped on us.  I don't even want to think about what's coming our way this weekend.There wer … continue reading

Waiting Their Turn

Waiting Their Turn
Thank goodness the arctic vortex has finally ended and we're all in hopes to never see such horribly cold temperatures in our area ever again.  I was terribly saddened when hearing about all the deaths that occurred due to that cold.  My nerves were on edge the entire time because of my fears something terrible would happen with clients, customer … continue reading
