national marketing realtors: CLOWN DOWN! - 12/17/14 06:59 AM

CLOWN DOWN!

Cloudy the Clown (R) and Timmothy N. Timm (L)
This picture, taken about 6 years ago, is one of my favorite pictures. It was taken at a church function and two of the entertainers who volunteered were Cloudy & her husband Dizzy. Dizzy, Cloudy, and their daughter Sparkly have won many awards for their acts and Dizzy has been honored nationally for his balloon tieing skills.
Cloudy's real name is Claudia Gillespie, her husband Ken, and daughter Janet. This time of year Cloudy and Dizzy are often seen is Santa & Mrs. Claus.
This family has done … (2 comments)

national marketing realtors: NOW is The Time To Buy In Minot ND. - 12/08/14 12:08 PM

NOW is The Time To Buy In Minot ND.
 

Property values in Minot ND had steadily increased over the last two decades until about 2011 when they shot through the roof. The spring of 2011 brought the "perfect storm" for what many would call a financial housing disaster and what many others would call a financial bonanza in housing sales.
 
2011 was when the ND oil BOOM became obvious and little dying towns of 10 to 20 residents became Boom towns of thousands. 2011 was also the year that the Souris River flooded far above all previous records … (2 comments)

national marketing realtors: IT'S GOOD TO BE THE BOSS.... - 12/02/14 04:27 PM

IT'S GOOD TO BE THE BOSS....
....Once In A While.
There are a whole lot of little things about being the Boss that helps even out the BIG pain in the behind stuff that goes with being the Boss. While I don't actually have any "employees" in my office I do supervise other agents and contracted helpers. I get to pick the radio station (always KFYR Christian Radio) and I get to decorate the office to my liking. I like Christmas, and my office screams Christmas this time of year. Happy Holidays may be fine but as a Christian I … (4 comments)

national marketing realtors: AFFORDABLE HOME IN MINOT ND - 11/10/14 08:28 AM

Affordable housing in Minot ND is somewhat of a oxymoron with prices that have pretty much tripled over the last 5 years (due to our oil boom and other positive growth factors). Considering our wonderful financial circumstances in Minot this house is the gem many families are looking for who can not afford our average home price of over $300,000.

Great starter home! 2 Bedrooms, 1 Bath. This house has newer shingles, furnace, flooring and appliances. Very large fenced yard is perfect for kids and pets. Optional additional lot adjacent  available. Unfinished basement has a high ceiling … (7 comments)

national marketing realtors: TIME TO SHRED - 08/18/14 12:02 PM

TIME TO SHRED
I was cleaning out an old file cabinet left behind from the previous owner of the company and thinking... what am I going to do with this stuff? These were not sensitive customer files, just plat maps and development information collected by the previous owner, a property appraiser.
 
I could have spent hours going through each file looking for info I may or may not use.... some day.... but I'm opting to just get rid of the clutter. Just in case there is some personal information in there I'm going to take the paper to a recycling … (10 comments)

national marketing realtors: It's time for "THE GREAT TOMATO FESTIVAL" - 08/12/14 12:50 PM

It's time for "THE GREAT TOMATO FESTIVAL"
 
Actually I'm almost late in posting this being the Festival is tomorrow, August 13th from 5:30 PM til 10:00 PM. I love this event. First of all it benefits several good causes, including The Minot Public Library (which my best friend is in charge of). I also love the event because it's a time I get to serve others (literally as I usually wait tables for the event), and maybe most important of all it's a big reminder to me that my anniversary is just a few days away and I better do … (5 comments)

national marketing realtors: A GOOD WOMAN - 07/28/14 01:35 PM
 
A GOOD WOMAN

The world lost a VERY good woman this weekend with the passing of my mother-in-law Kathryn Yoder. Katheryn passed on after a brief battle with liver cancer. She was 87 years young.
In the 17 years I knew Kathryn I never saw her angry and I never heard her say a bad word about anyone. She even thought her son-in-law was a good guy. I was always amazed at her open hospitality as there was always room for someone who needed a place to stay or needed a warm meal. She was always willing to give … (7 comments)

national marketing realtors: Oh Baby! I found THE Spot. - 07/26/14 05:35 PM

 
Oh Baby! I found THE Spot.
If you are a camper and/or live in a rural State you know how important it is to find "The Spot". Usually if you are camping in a remote area somebody has found "The Spot" before you and is happy to tell you where "The Spot" is.
You don't get much more remote than our church camp, Shepherds Hill At The Crossroads just out of St. John ND.
I thought I came equipt for a Realtor vacation, cell phone, netbook, mobile hot spot, etc. etc.. I didn't expect the place to be so isolated … (8 comments)

Why Not Minot?
When I made this little video a few minutes ago I was surprised that there were so many videos with the same title on You Tube. Good quality videos. Mine is not. I actually made this video just to see if I could make a video.

OK, hope this works. If not I will remove it in a jiffy.
I can NOT seem to get the player to come up BUT if you click on the fellow above you will see my video.

KIDS, PETS AND HALLOWEEN, OH MY!

My creative, pet loving, daughter felt the need to torment dress up her beloved guinea pig, Titus, for Halloween. I have to applaud her for her creativity. Last week we had Tina's teacher conferences (7th grade) and of course there were no surprises, she's a genius (we think) and every teacher commented on how polite and well mannered she is. She is sooo unlike her dad from when I was in school.
Have a fun and safe Holloween and look out for furry little bees named Titus.

GOOD MORNING MR. SUNSHINE!

Up here in the North land the days are getting shorter as winter draws near. Now I'm getting to the office before the first rays of sunshine. Today's sunrise made me stop what I was doing and take it's picture. Like a child screaming "Look at me, Look at me" I just could not deny it.

Inside The Scamp (My Tiny, Tiny Camper)
For those of you who asked what the inside of my tiny little camer looks like here it is, as is. I do plan on having the cushions reupolstered soon and I will/maybe recarpet the floors. Also on the "to do" list is make new curtains.
I am convinced that no matter what we will have fun with it. Our first test run will be this weekend. The real test will be to see if my Honda Oddesy can handle pulling it without overheating or burning a lot of oil (as it does when I … (8 comments)

I’m Ready To Scamp!
 
My first job out of Tech School (now known as Technical College) was working as a Motorcycle Mechanic for a brand new dealership called The Escape Hatch in MoorheadMinnesota. That was 40 years ago… of course I was -1 years old then being I’m only 39 now (I wish).
 
I don’t have a lot of pleasant memories of that job but one of the good ones I do remember was that we were a dealer for a really cool little camper called a Scamp. From that time on I thought “some day I will own … (4 comments)
