Akron's mayor says the city is requesting $23.5 million in federal bailout funds to help those facing foreclosure Mayor Don Plusquellic said Wednesday the city would use the money to negotiate with banks and to restructure loans to keep homeowners in their homes. Plusquellic sent a letter to U.S. Treasury Secretary Henry Paulson asking for money from the federal emergency economic stabilization fund. Akron had 1,445 foreclosures in 2007 and is expected to have a similar number this year. If you are in imminent need of help, please stay tuned for more information. (2 comments)

Akron Ohio Homes Loved John F. Kennedy! - 11/22/08 06:23 PM
Can you believe it has been 45 years since that terrible day in Dallas, Texas? For those of you my age, you all remember where you were when you heard the news that Our President had been shot and killed in Dallas. I was in my junior high school library when my teacher came in crying. I don't know about you, but my teachers did not cry very often, so I was awestruck by this. To say it was a very momentous day for me would be an understatement. I always listen to this song on this day because it means (7 comments)

"And now, the most memorable tradition in college band history--The Incomparable SCRIPT OHIO!" With that introduction, a three-and-a-half minute, single-file trek begins for the 192-piece OSUMB as the band files into the "Script" Ohio formation. First performed during the 1936 season, Script Ohio is the most identifiable trademark associated with Ohio State Football and the Ohio State Marching Band. The script is an integrated series of evolutions and formations. The band first forms a triple Block O formation which will slowly unwind to form the famous letters. The drum major leads the outside O into a peel-off movement around the (0 comments)

Akron Ohio Homes Finds it Easy Being Green! - 11/13/08 07:23 PM
I was part of one of the largest Real Estate firms in NE Ohio a week ago. Realty One Real Living had almost 20% of the market share most of the time. The other largest was Howard Hanna out of Pittsburgh who aquired Smythe Cramer in Akron, Ohio around 2002 or so and made their huge presence felt. They had almost the same number of agents and market share and we went back and forth for years. There was also a lot of mutual respect between the companies and many deals were made with Realty One and Howard Hanna Realtors. It (3 comments)
Akron Ohio Homes says God Bless our Veterans - 11/11/08 07:27 PM
This is Veterans Day and I practice it every day! In our profession, we get to meet Veterans more than most folks. I don't know about you but when I show a home to a Veteran, I always grab their hand and look them in the eye and I say with heartfelt meaning "thank you for your service, it means a lot to me". They almost always look a little surprised, which means to me that they do not hear that enough. So, please do the same. We cannot ever repay these fine young men and women for their sacrifice. But (6 comments)
