ASK MG: Strange and Unusual Mike and I were having lunch with a business acquaintance last week who asked us "what is the strangest thing you have run into in your real estate career?" Here were a few of our experiences: Our brokerage has an acreage for sale that the surrounding community firmly believes is haunted by a female ghost. The story goes that the spirit came with the house when it was moved on to the property, and will make itself known to residents by a number of events - every drawer in the kitchen open in the morning, a (0 comments)

A Tale of Two Farmers Every once in awhile as a Realtor you will be presented with a life lesson. In this case, it was distinctly different impact made by two farmers on their family and communities. Both of these gentlemen were bachelors. Each was adept at farming accumulating considerable holdings and wealth over fifty years of working the land. Both had a grade eight education, the highest that the public school system would support at the time they were children. The lack of a formal education did not deter their later progress though; if anything it may have made them (0 comments)
