Spring is in the Air in Oswegoland! - 03/17/11 12:32 AM
I almost missed the great weather today in Oswego, as I went through my emails and answered calls, updated sites and did a bunch of administrative stuff that had to be done. After being on a coaching call and finally leaving my office I opened my garage door and entered a new world. The air was balmy, the sun was shining and you could literally feel a change in the air. Neighbors were out in the yard, people were on the bikes and I even heard birds chirping. I took off my coat and almost felt like I had stepped into another (5 comments)

Pet Peeves in Setting Up Showings - 03/10/11 05:33 PM
Setting up showings has definitely become easier. My MLS in the Chicagoland area has a tool which we can set-up to automate the showing process. For certain listings its perfect. I am a one woman office so I have agents call my cell phone since I know I can get to them fairly fast. If you need a one day code because you don't have the same lockbox access that I have, please indicate that in your message request. If you don't I am going to assume you have a sentrilock keycard and don't need one. What bothers me is these (39 comments)

Despite the fact that they initially denied (4 comments)
