A jubilant optimism has convoluted homeowners. And for good reasons. Fixed low interest rates, appreciating home values, and hopes of refinancing culminate to a rather bright outlook. However, one thing has changed… the Appraisal District has finally decided to wipe the sleep from its eyes and pl...

I picked up my new pup Chico after his second sulfur and lime dip yesterday. He was really happy to see me but he was so yellow he looked almost green.

Thank You Melinda (Mel) Peterson for the Referral! It has been a crazy few weeks for me in real estate.  Some days I don’t even know which day it is or what time it is.  I just keep plugging along while the market is hot. I have been remiss in not sending out a HUGE thank you to our fellow Rainma...

I think it was sometime in 2003, I learned my daughter, Tami, would be going back to school.  This was somewhat surprising, because she had already acquired a Master’s Degree in English, and a teaching credential.  She had taught high school English for a couple years. Even more astonishing was h...

I know I am given a choice every moment as to who or whose report I am going to listen too. We hear so much negative news because good news doesn't spread as well.

It reminds me of an old nursery rhyme, “Sticks and Stones.” Words do hurt and the words we use when we talk to ourselves hurt not only ourselves, they hurt others. Now that I am getting wiser, I am begi...

Needing to pack but I am not feeling like it. I am instead showing Chico some special time to bond and be recognized and to know he is home and loved. Tomorrow, he and my other three go to Camp Wagalot while I am traveling. In that time I hope they bond too.

So you prepare for days and then it comes. The time to leave and get to the airport. My ride comes early because we are going to JFK in New York and you just never know.
