FIRE SALE! Riverstone Auction Postponed, Starting Bids Lowered Dramatically! - 06/26/09 04:27 PM
There has been a lot of buzz around town about the big auction of luxury condos at the beautiful Riverstone development. Last month I posted the first press release about the auction. The original date set for earlier this month was pushed back, and I just received a email flyer that announced the starting bids have been drastically reduced. If you or someone you know would like a great investment property at fire sale prices, please give me a call. This is an unfortunate sign of the times, and of bad timing and over-building. Nevertheless, Riverstone is a class development in a (6 comments)

I Love My LOW-END Listing! - 06/23/09 11:33 PM
A couple weeks ago an email popped into my mailbox. The subject said Low-end listing. I was intrigued, and started reading what I thought would be just a piece of spam. It turned out to be a very sincere and intelligent Email. The writer stated that she knew I specialized in high-end listings but wanted to know if I could recommend someone who would do a good job of marketing her low-end listing. Immediately I knew that she had to have stumbled upon this post I had recently written. For starters, although I have achieved Million Dollar Guild status with the Institute For Luxury Home Marketing, I have made (5 comments)
A Coeur d'Alene Ironman Morning! - 06/21/09 03:22 PM
WOW! I set out this morning around 6:00 am to watch the swimmers take off from City Beach. Of course, roads were blocked, closed, traffic diverted, throngs of people... By the time I found somewhere to park, walked for several blocks, went under barricades, I got to Independence Point after the last of the swimmers had taken the plunge. The skies were gloomy and it was chilly. But there was excitement in the air. And, what's that in the air, too? At least there were no crowds blocking my view straight UP!
I was finally able to infiltrate the crowd on (5 comments)
A picture perfect day in Cataldo, Idaho - 06/17/09 11:30 PM
It seems lately that I often find myself driving along past incredible scenery on my way here and there, to and fro. Sometimes, like yesterday, I just have to stop the car and take a picture! I'm not sure what this body of water is, but it is somewhere near Cataldo, Idaho, just north of I-90. My teenage son Derek and I were taking a little day trip to Mullan and back, to take photos for a BPO. It seemed like a good excuse for a pleasant afternoon in the mountains, seeing some touristy sights. That's how I happened to be (16 comments)

A Blast From the Past - 10% Interest Rates! - 06/09/09 11:58 AM
This past week I have been in the process of moving across town. I have found that something interesting happens during a move - things surface that I haven't seen for years! The other day I was sifting through books, and came across a paperback with interest rates and mortgage payment tables. A blast from the past in general, because nowadays we just get online to a quick mortgage calculator and plug in your numbers, click, and there is your 30 year amortization table as quick as a wink. I did a double take as I checked out this book that (6 comments)
