Ok all you sunny state residents that have forgotten what the white stuff looks like, we've got a little something for you! About another half foot hit our area Thursday, so yesterday was time to run the snow blower down our driveway. We're in Ohio, so we get all FOUR seasons. Winter carries its share of snow, spring for flowers and green growth, summer to go play in our rivers and lakes, and fall to enjoy the changing colors. And as they say around here, if you don't like the weather...just wait (20 comments)

Government Fiscal Responsibility --- Just One More Reason Warren County Ohio Should Be Your Choice For Where To Live!When you think about buying your next home, there's a bunch of items that probably come straight to mind: the number of bedrooms and baths, price, school district, two story or ranch style, lot size, etc.But there's one factor that might not jump to the front for you, but should have some influence on your decision. How healthy is the local government?With unemployment flirting with 10% in many areas, tax revenues are down while demand for services are up. Some school districts are (14 comments)

Go Take A Flying Leap! Skydive Warren County!You heard me right! Go taking a flying leap...LITERALLY!!! They don't call Warren County Ohio's Largest Playground without reason!

'Tis the season to be extra watchful for Bambi and kin or you may be giving Maaco some work to do! Driving home from getting a contract accepted last night, there were five deer on our country road. If you look closely at the photo, a doe is just about to clear out of the left side of the picture, and that's a fawn under the tree! Don't worry, we were stopped when we got the photo, a real "deer in the headlights" moment! They weren't in a hurry to move!We've learned to watch for their eyes reflecting the headlights at (23 comments)

It's another wonderful fall morning here in Warren County Ohio! The leaves have been quickly dropping...yes, I know the lawn needs raked/blown....it's on THE LIST! :) We have a bench seat in our office that is perhaps our cats' favorite spot! A big pillow and fleece blanket make a comfortable spot to watch the outside world, and they take full advantage of the opportunity! The cat in the picture is Paisley. She's got a ton of character, thinks she's the boss of all cats in the home, and also thinks she could take out a deer! She sees a deer in (22 comments)

warren county ohio: Stupid Is As Stupid Does: Make Sure Your Agent Knows Your Local Market! - 10/11/10 08:26 AM
Stupid Is As Stupid Does Forrest Gump said. We see it all the time. Decisions made and announced, and you just go HUH??? What were they thinking??!!! Last week, one of the local DJs, Eddie Fingers, was fired by Clear Channel Communications over a contract extension dispute. Unlike so many radio and TV personalities fired for something said that shouldn't have been said, Eddie was fired because some corporate big shot in Texas obviously doesn't understand just how revered Eddie is by the local radio listeners. After decades on the local radio scene, Eddie just might be one of the most (43 comments)

warren county ohio: Just Like Goldilocks Said, This One Is JUST RIGHT!! Perhaps a Patio Home Is JUST RIGHT for You? - 09/09/10 08:25 AM
"This one is Just Right!" might be what you'd be saying if your lifestyle needs match up with a patio home! Also known as "lifestyle homes" or "garden homes", this type of home combines the best of a stand alone single family home with the best of a condo! Typically a ranch home (maybe with a basement) that is set on a smaller lot (probably a quarter acre or less in our area) that you own! The home typically has a bit more flair and inside amenities than your subdivision home. Most often, you'll find patio homes as a one or (17 comments)

warren county ohio: Why a Warren County Ohio Home May Have Multiple Addresses - 09/05/10 08:47 AM
To buy your home, first the public has to be able to find it! If the home is inside a city limits, you only get one choice, but once you cross the city line, things get a little more complex. Your township homes in Warren County may be addressed one of two ways: Either by their township location or by their postal mailing address. The Cincinnati MLS requires that agents are consistent with the county auditor's tax record address, so if you're outside the city limits, we ARE required to list your home by your township address (Turtlecreek, Clearcreek, Deerfield, Hamilton, (4 comments)
warren county ohio: 2010 Warren County Ohio School District Report Cards Released - 08/28/10 07:27 AM
Back to school time! The buses are out and about, and so are the latest Ohio Department of Education School Report Cards! Ratings are given in 26 categories, and a "Value Added" category. This last category gets a bit tricky for the top schools to maintain, as it measures whether students exceed one year's worth of learning for a school year. If a school has MANY superior students already performing above their expected level, it is difficult to get the Value Added criteria met. This primarily comes in to play for deciding whether a school is Excellent with Distinction, or Excellent. (4 comments)
