YOU DON'T ALWAYS NEED RELIGION! But You've Gotta Have FAITH! - 02/20/10 12:59 PM
Hey, folks! Came from Chicago, down the Mississippi to New Orleans, LA . . . for the Keller Williams Annual Agent Conference, Keller Williams Family Reunion, 2010. All set to be educated, motivated, and inspired. My headline today - you consider it Heresy? Disrespectful? Insensitive? Repeating again . . . YOU DON"T ALWAYS NEED RELIGION! But You've Gotta Have FAITH! So often, during tough times, and through the course of history, folks have relied on their Religious Faith to get them through tough times. The Faith in a Spiritual Being more powerful than themselves. Ever Present. Omnipotent. And, for many, the (1 comments)

THE CHICAGO IL REAL ESTATE MARKET, AND OTHER THINGS CHICAGO, FROM THE POINT OF VIEW OF A LITTLE WHITE DOG! Hey, you dogs! Of course, with today's high unemployment rate - nearly 11% here in the Chicago Area - I'm sure hoping all you reading my posts are gainfully employed! What? Are you a victim of a "temporary cutback." A "necessary furlough?" A "corporate restructuring?" Unsure if your career is reaching its dogleg? Is it tough to keep bones in the bowl these days? Well, Chicago Mayor Richard M. Daley might have an opportunity for you - if you have the right (1 comments)

THE CHICAGO IL REAL ESTATE MARKET, AND OTHER THINGS CHICAGO, FROM THE POINT OF VIEW OF A LITTLE WHITE DOG! Hey, you dogs! I figured I would check out my latest Playlist on my Doggie Pod. Unfortunately, it seems, the headband on my ear buds are a bit too big. Guess I will have to make an adjustment! All my life, I have been a Chicago Dog. Proudly! Well, except for the six weeks of my puppy hood I spent in Joliet IL, near The Big House - before I got sprung. And where do I live? In Casa Moss, of (1 comments)
GLUT OF RENTALS IN CHICAGO - Rent Reductions, Other Incentives Abound this Spring! - 02/12/10 06:10 PM
You wanna live in Downtown Chicago or The Chicago Loop? Desire to rent, rather than to buy? Likely, you're going to save a lot of money by renting downtown! In 2010, in excess of 2,200 new rental units will be added to existing rental inventory in and near The Loop this year. This is on top of the nearly 1,300 existing rental units in or near Downtown. Also, condominium units available for lease, after another difficult selling season for their owners, have flooded the market in Downtown Chicago. For the 12 month period that ended June, 2009, nearly 4.500 condo (1 comments)
In Chicago, Star Trek Technology May Soon Nab More Speeders! - 02/11/10 10:26 PM
From Chicago - the land of expensive on-street parking, $100 red light camera citations, and now-more-infrequent CTA Bus Service - comes a new technology designed to generate more municipal and county revenue. The technology - LIDAR - Speed Guns that work with high-tech Laser Beams, rather than old-fashioned Radar Waves - will now be allowed as evidence of Speeding Violations in Traffic Courts across Cook County IL, the county in which the City of Chicago is located. In the City of Chicago itself, however, the jury on LIDAR Guns is still out. The city's Law Department is having its own hearing (2 comments)
FOR BOOMERS, YOUNGER HOMEOWNERS - Is Staying Put Going to be a Lasting Trend? - 02/09/10 07:08 PM
From Snowy Chicago, Good Evening, All! You must remember - it wasn't all that long ago - the seeming never-ending cycle of homeowner migration and move-up. Young singles and newly-married couples around Chicago would start with a small condo as their first home. They would move up to a townhome, with more room, and more amenities. When children came, the next move often involved a larger house in the suburbs, with shopping malls nearby, top schools aplenty, and lotsa room to grow. Often, further prosperity and job security led to the purchase of a larger home, with even more deluxe features. Then another. Perhaps (1 comments)
