Someone Criticised Your For Sale Property: What Can You Do About it? - 08/28/11 02:20 PM
Donna gives some wonderful advice about the feedback you receive when your house is on the market! It's hard to hear sometimes, but much of it can be very worthwhile. Would you buy your house again if you were in the market for one like it? It's hard to put ourselves in mindset - but it's helpful if you can.

To have a Home Warranty or Not......my experience - 08/20/11 03:23 PM
When purchasing a home, it's always good to weigh the pros and cons of buying a warranty for that home, at least for the first year. As an agent, I always tell my clients about warranties and my own personal experience with them. 80% of the time I think it's a good idea to have one. Sometimes I even purchase the home warranty as the gift to the buyer, and many times it's come in very handy. A home inspection is great, but it is only a snapshot in time of how the house is and one doesn't know what may (0 comments)

We had this great 10-year-old cat named Jack who just recently died. Jack was a great cat and the kids would carry him around and sit on him and nothing ever bothered him. He used to hang out and nap all day long on the mat in our bathroom. We have 3 kids and at the time of this story they were 4 years old, 3 years old (2 comments)
Leave the lights on, just not the candles burning! - 08/03/11 05:40 PM
I've been showing quite a few homes lately and more than a few have had lit candles through out the home. Don't get me wrong - I love candles and they do make the home smell great and create a nice ambiance - however - NO ONE IS HOME! I fight the urge to blow them out even. Candles cause over 15,000 home fires annually. (per the National Candle Association) - and you should never leave a candle burning out of sight! It just worries me - for the homeowner especially! I know most likely they did what we as agents (4 comments)
