The weather this morning was damp.  51 degrees and breezy.  Very raw.  A chicken noodle soup type of day... It was also a perfect morning for delivering my newsletters. Today's target was Carrolwood, a subdivision of about 160 townhomes in Naperville Illinois.  The homes are nice and modestly pri...

I will be showing some condos to a new client tomorrow.  The client is excited to enter the real estate market as a first time buyer.
