I'm here to stay! This is my home and I wouldn't live anywhere else but here!
Last week I attended Realtor Government Day and found some concerns that you may want to know about in the state of Wisconsin.  The issue is Senate Bill 93/Assembly Bill 136 would allow property tax assessors to enter onto private property without being subject to trespassing laws. If this bill ...
This week has been interesting.  If I thought it was tough out there...I didn't dream of this one. I set up a showing on a property and took my buyer over. When we got there, two young men were standing outside, near their parked car.  I figured they were there to let me into the house, but they ...
Love thy neighbor as yourself, but choose your neighborhood. ~ Louise Beal Isn't that the truth!  There are some great neighborhoods to choose from.  If you are coming from most any city around the Janesville area you will find more house for your money.  I truly believe we may end up being more ...
We can't all be heroes because somebody has to sit on the curb and clap as they go by. ~ Will Rogers Yesterday on my way to work (it's only a 15 minute drive), I saw a man digging through the garbage dumpster looking for acceptable items to take with him.  I went by the local food pantry and saw ...

      "Today I will do what others won't, so tomorrow I can accomplish what others can't."   -Jerry Rice, Football Player   It's Monday again and raining!  But, that's ok.  It was a wonderful weekend for weather and business. There are a lot of people out looking, trying to find a good deal.  I m...
So here's the question?  Can you get a better deal on a "short sale" or on a REO property? The difference is a short sale has not been aquired by the lender yet.  The lender is agreeing to take a lesser amount of money to allow it to close and not get it back.  An REO property has been taken back...
I found a great video yesterday on You Tube from the CEO of Coldwell Banker.  It's a very good video on the dangers of flipping and why home ownership is a long term investment. It's worth your viewing if you're thinking of buying a residence, investment or thinking of flipping! http://www.youtub...
 Today while driving to my Mom's house I saw at least four SOLD signs.  I am so happy to see that!  It must mean that Spring is coming soon.  The temp is perfect and I even am walking barefoot for the first time in 6 months!  Last night while relaxing, a young girl came to my door all by herself...
I just read a great book!  It's the Energy Bus by Jon Gordon.  It's one of those self improvement books that we should read over and over.  I found this book to be a great need in this time of a crazy economy. I invite you to read this book.  I believe it will benefit anyone who reads it. I want ...
