On the local news last night there was an interesting story.  It orginated in Salt Lake City, but this particular station, like many others has a "fix it" reporter.  He is the guy that puts pressure on companies or government to make things right, and he does a good job.  He is fair to the compan...

It was 20 years ago today that I lost my father.  As I remember him, the thoughts of the time come back to me.  Where we lived, you couldn't hardly give a house away then.  The ensuing years have seen my little hometown go through at least 2 really nice growth spurts where the real estate market ...

I finally have time to blog on my listing appointment from yesterday.  We had a referral from a relocation company.  We were competing with another agent to get the listing.  We still do not know which agent, nor which company we were competing against.  Using the numbers generated from the local...

I can hardly believe that it is almost Thanksgiving!  The weather has yet to really turn cold, which in unusual, although Walmart has had Christmas music and decorations out since the 4th of July (just kidding, sort of).  I have much to be thankful for.  My health is good, I haven't completely lo...
