A year minus 7 weeks ago this little chap came into my life, and it's never been the same. We had an Irish Setter many years ago and thought we would never have another dog, cats are easier to fit into real estate, we have 3 of them; but things happen. It was a funny off the cuff mention about on...
Note I do not make this statement in reference to bought leads as experience tells me they are both poor leads, duplicated leads and leads forced to fill a form out to gain access to more information. I am talking about your own self generated internet leads.I have been working internet leads for...
Every home has a story and when it comes to sell, some stories make those sale odds very tough. I was contacted almost three years ago to work with the owners of this Dundee horse property to help them sell. The kids had left home, almost, and it was time to downsize. But there's one big objectio...
I was contacted by the owners of this 8 acre property with expansive 5300 square foot ranch home and huge barn, because of my success in selling horse property in Barrington. Even though Dundee is not known for horse properties and the typical property there sure does not have 8 acres, there are ...

So imagine my delight when: I first have a weekend off. And second my husband is home for this one in the middle of business travel. We had not planned ...
I have a 10 month old Golden Retriever puppy named Finlay. Here he is taking a nap after his 30 minutes morning run. I did not even know there was such a thing as puppy day. Thanks to Nina Hollander for her contribution to helping all dogs and puppies.      It's National Puppy Day today!  Can you...
I hate being the same as everyone else. I have spent a lot of time and effort on my website including the colors matching to my company logo and there being continuity throughout the website. It's a never ending job but I do like delving into code and making the magic happen.Today I spent a littl...
It's been awhile since I wrote a post about website help and this came to me this morning as I was checking my web visitors and seeing what they are doing when they visit. I'll be the first to raise my hand and say I must check my own site every now and again to make sure I am doing what I say. M...
