In case you were wondering, today is National Puppy Day.  So this is the day that you want/need to find a puppy and give it some love.It's not hard to do... they are so darn cute, you have to remind yourself they don't stay that size (most of the time), and they don't always smell that good.But ...
The other day I wrote about a vacant townhome listing I have that's been giving me bleepity, bleepin trouble.  An alarm has gone off a couple of times in the last 30 days, or so... and I've had to go to the property, once in the very wee hours of the morning, and the second time during the day th...

My mother's Alzheimer's causes her to have a very short attention span.  I'd say that she behaves like a child, but it's really more like a puppy, distracted by every sound, every leaf and every shiny thing. One of the things she seems obsessed with lately is reading everything.  Not books or new...
My clients were having a difficult time finding a property that suited them.We'd looked at most of the listings that were popping up on the MLS, and went out viewing some of them.. and nothing was hitting us just right.I knew about a For-Sale-by-Owner that had recently come on the market.  It was...
