I Love "Freebies" - 03/29/09 09:24 PM
I love "freebies". Everyone likes to get something for free. In the better economy it was actually fun to shop for freebies to hand out at open houses and to clients. People seemed to light up when you gave them something small. It was nice to hear from a few people "I got your newsletter in the mail" or "I tried the recipe on the card you sent". Newsletters,recipe cards, calendars, cups, pens, etc...... I'm like a kid with a Christmas catalog when a new real estate marketing magazine comes in the mail. Here's the thing: I have noticed that no (12 comments)
I was sitting at the first of my two open houses for the day reflecting on what a difference a week can make. It seems that March has decided to go out like a lion here in Northwest Indiana. We were in for a rude awakening this morning. I wanted to pull the covers over my head and go back to sleep when I saw the snow. My first thought was "are you kidding me"! Today there is about an inch of snow on the outdoor dining set on the deck. The snow is falling gently. The snowflakes are as (1 comments)
I have a few co-workers, clients, and family members who are looking for a little extra income. I wanted to let everyone know about the 2010 census. Everyone who knows me well knows I am a big genealogy buff. I wish I had more time for it. In 2000 I participated in the 2000 census as an enumerator. I was thrilled with the thought that 80 years from now someone from my family line may be interested in genealogy as I am and will see my name listed as the enumerator on a census. The US census bureau is currently hiring (6 comments)

First Robin - 03/09/09 01:28 PM
I noticed my first Robin of the year sitting at an open house yesterday. I had heard birds chirping one morning earlier in the week. The weather was still cold. I didn't think it could be a Robin already. I use open houses as a time for reflection and study. This was my second weekend of open houses for the year. As I sat in the kitchen looking out, I noticed the grass was turning green again. A cardinal sat on the fence. A couple of boys were playing basketball at the park behind the home. It finally feels like (0 comments)
