You Want Inspiration, Look No Further Than Your Local Homeowner! - 09:33 AM
If it wasn't for a lack of REM sleep and an inspired addiction to this very forum, I might never have had the opportunity to jot down all the thoughts going on in my head I wanted to share. Over a month ago I sat in this very chair, staring at this very screen, and I started to write about one of the more inspiring individuals I've ever met in my life. Then, it happened, computer freeze and POOF....it was gone. I hadn't the heart to pour out my heart about that guy again til now. My very first year in this business, (7 comments)
Each Day I Walk Among Heros!! - 05:03 PM
Today, I took my grandson to one of the Sun City community pools. While watching him, I thought of the many who never had kids and grandkids. They were the ones we honor today. So, where are the heros you ask? I live and work with many of Tom Brokaw's "Greatest Generation" It is easy to remember Memorial Day, and Veteran's Day too, when you see these heros daily. Here in Sun City, we have many remaining veterans of WWII. We also have veterans of the Korean War. Now that they are getting old enough we are proud to welcome also the (0 comments)

Lakeshore in Maple Grove, Minnesota - 11:09 AM
Lake Shore in the CityLocation: Maple Grove, MN Why waste time and gas going up north to the lake when you can come home from work daily to the pleasure of beautiful sunsets, fishing, recreational boating and all that lake living affords. Private dock and lake frontage is protected by the channel from damage and erosion from wave action, yet the lake is in full view. Wildlife is abundant on land and water.

Remembering Those Who Serve - 06:08 PM
I spent some time at Fort Snelling National Cemetery today. I don't know if any of my friends are buried there, although many family members are eligible but have bought plots elsewhere. Fort Snelling's cemetery is small than some of the national cemeteries, but impressive nonetheless. Walking among the stones, watching the visitors, talking with some, and generally reflecting was a good way to remember those who have served. My thanks go to the many who have selflessly given of their time so that I, and others less appreciative than I, can live in one of the greatest countries on earth. (1 comments)

Over 20 years ago my first home was located on a dead end street in upstate New York. The street was incredibly quiet all the time - until Memorial Day rolled around each spring. On that day it was jammed with slow moving vehicles making their way into the gated cemetery at its terminus. The cars, trucks, and vans would each move respectfully into the narrow opening, then the caravan would spread out as appreciative loved ones would find their way to specific gravesites, many for their only visit of the year. Flags would be posted, flowers deposited, and prayers (4 comments)

WE SERVE A MIGHTY GOD!! - 09:09 PM
Never underestimate the power of prayer. I have witnessed first hand the power of prayer and the miracle of HIS WORD not only today but in many ways in my life. This never ceases to amaze me, yet WHY DO WE FORGET when we are going through trials that GOD IS BIGGER THAN ANY PROBLEM. In my business I have asked GOD to bless it and always make me be a blessing to those I serve. I have also asked HIM to guide my business and lead me to the jobs that HE wanted me to have. When I keep that in (5 comments)
Reliable lenders are vital to a closed real estate transaction - 12:00 PM
Reliable lenders are vital to a closed real estate transaction When it comes to getting a real estate transaction closed, it's hard to imagine anything worse than the possibility of a client's financing falling through. Regardless of why it happened, or who's at fault, it tends to throw the entire transaction into a tailspin. Once everything is said and done, the next big question for any good REALTOR is how to make sure it doesn't happen again. In my experience, the key to success is to work with a proven, reputable lender with whom you or your real estate agent has established a (0 comments)

Thank You All - 12:22 PM
I stopped by the 800 Flag Memorial Day display in Eagle this morning, drawn by the sight of so many flags. If you can, you should stop by and give some thought to what today is all about. The display will be up until next Saturday, June 2. My thoughts and prayers run along these lines... It is a worthy thing to fight for one's freedom; it is another sight finer to fight for another man's. MARK TWAIN Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn't pass it to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, (0 comments)
Introductions and Words of Wisdom - 08:40 PM
I hope everyone has had a wonderful Memorial Day. I spent the weekend with my oldest son, Ryan, who is a member of the 82nd Airborne, 2 Brigate 325th (white falcons). Ryan will be deploying in the next week or so to join his unit who are already in place in Iraq. While we were just spending time together I realized that life really is too short. What would I do if I knew my life would change completely tomorrow? Really, nothing other than being with your family and friends matters. My son will be in Iraq until March 2008. And, (0 comments)
