I am getting ready to go to a barn sale in really frigid weather. It is currently -4 degrees real temperature, and with the wind blowing feeling like -23. That's a serious cold spell.

I'm sure Andrea has struck a cord here. She has hit on a new marketing technique that is a bit creepy if it has been following you around. She also left us an "opt-out" link to get a little more privacy when we're online. Use it if all of the ads on your sidebar are creeping out. I am a big plann...

This past week I had a gentleman call me about a property I have listed. He apologized a dozen times for bothering me. I had to laugh because having a potential buyer call me is not a bother.
