nebraska land for sale: Sandhill Cranes Are All Over Central Nebraska Platte River Valley!
- 03/30/15 08:20 AM
We took a wrong turn...or rather took a correct turn the other night east of Kearney, NE.
My wife, Robyn, and I had decided to take our daughters Jeep for a drive Saturday night as it had rarely been driven while Jaime is studying in Lima, Peru this semester.
My wife wanted to go watch the Sandhill Cranes coming in to roost (sleep) for the night...and we had a spot where we always watched them land in a field close to the Platte River.
On the way out there I commented on how much traffic there was and when we got
nebraska land for sale: I Am Giving It Up For 2015!!
- 03/30/15 06:36 AM
I saw an AR contest blog by Grant Schneider on what we have given up in 2015 that was not working.
I thought about this a little...and looked back in the mirror on the road my career has traveled and realized that I, indeed, had given up on a few things this year!!
In fact two major changes in my career are being made
1. I gave up worrying about the other guy. The other Agent...the other Broker...the other Auctioneer...the other Seller...and the other Buyer... and started helping others be successful;
2. I gave up working with/for Clients that will not share all of
nebraska land for sale: What is there to do in Lima, Peru? Daughter needs Spring Break ideas!
- 01/30/15 11:09 AM
Have you visited or lived in Lima, Peru? Do you have some sure fire fun things that you can share with me for my daughter to do?
Spring break comes early in the semester in Lima, Peru. Our daughter and her friend who are studying abroad this semester will have about 10 days with a lot of time on their hands and are looking for ideas on what to do during this time.
Although they live with host families...the families may not have much for them to do during this time.
I can already hear the sighs of boredom...from 4000 miles

- 09/29/14 02:58 PM
It is Harvest Time through out Nebraska Land ...one of the most exciting times of the year for me. The combines have really fired up this past week.
I love seeing the crops come out of the field and the combines making pass after pass...the full grain carts...the golden color of the corn and the brown of the beans!
The haybales in the fields from the last cutting of alfalfa and grass!!
But I do not like how dangerous it can be out there!!
It is simply a time that big equipment is in use in Nebraska and across
nebraska land for sale: Nebraska Farms Hailed Out Looks Like Harvest Time (with photos)!
- 07/18/14 07:40 AM
All I can say is Wow...When Mother Nature throws a temper tantrum...it can be a doozy.
A large swath of Central Nebraska has experienced that wrath in recent hailstorms and wind storms in 2014.
Some of these storms have been accompanied by high winds that act like bullets piercing anything in their paths. I cannot imagine the bruising on animals both wild and domestic.
Two areas that I sell Nebraska Farm Land in have been hit hard.
The photos accompanying this blog all were taken the afternoon of July 15, 2014. Every field below should look like the first
nebraska land for sale: How Much Are You Paying For Your 'FOR SALE' Signs?
- 01/17/14 07:02 AM
Ok...I admit it...I am one of those who has some old and ratty looking 'For Sale' signs.
They should have been retired many years ago I suppose.
Now I am shopping for new ones and am curious as to what everyone who has to pay for their signs is paying for them?
I am not in need of a fancy sign as these are going to be in road ditches in the country.
What I need will be a metal sign with 2 leg steel frame.
Blue and Red lettering on a white background like this >>>
You might wonder why not a fancier
nebraska land for sale: Smells..The Word of the Day!! The Nose Knows!!
- 01/16/14 02:27 PM
Are we almost like the big TV reporters who all seem to do the same story on the same day? I read so many blogs on Smells today I decided to write my own.
I have a wife who can smell almost anything from a long distance and a Daughter who claims she cannot smell anything and I believe her....trust me I have tested her if you know what I mean!
Today at lunch I decide to fry up a couple of potatoes at lunch and forgot to stir them. Left to go to a meeting with a client on a
nebraska land for sale: Cute Fixer Upper -Original Windows and Siding and It's Worth How Much?
- 01/15/14 09:37 AM
Attention All Home Sellers!! Do Not Receive This Letter...Only You can Prevent It By Having Your Home Ready To Sell When You List It!
Dear Mr and Mrs Seller and your agent,
Thank you for allowing my clients to view your "cute fixer upper" home!
My Buyers looked at a number of homes in the area but had the most comments about yours.
The many fine amenities that you and your agent mentioned about your home were, shall we say, perhaps puffed up a bit.
The "original" windows and siding comments in your agents listing should have been a warning
nebraska land for sale: Make Them Tell You No...or...Cold Calling Ain't That bad!!
- 01/14/14 08:19 PM
Ohh... the dreaded cold calls and door knocking... Are those days behind you? Did you ever do them?
Would you do them ... Or would you do more if you could muster up the courage?
I will make it simple for you...
If you don’t ask the question, the answer is already No!
Make them tell you No! Why? Because unless you ask...you can't get the answer you want.
It is either: they don’t know, you don’t know, or you think they will tell you No.
So I suggest that you: Make them tell you NO!
nebraska land for sale: Hmmm...What Should I do On Sunday Now That It Has Finally Snowed?
- 02/04/12 11:32 PM
Welll...after the warmest January ever...it started raining yesterday and after getting a strong half inch of rain it changed to snow and left us a very wet 8-12 inches depending on where you are around here.
Of course the "official" recorder of moisture in our fine city said we only received 7".
I guess he (or she) was not in our neck of the woods as we had well over 10". Even in the lowest spots...we had over 7" and where it drifted up to 24".
If the trees withstand the heavy snow and melt tomorrow, we will emerge from this
