Was thinking of going Wordless, but now that I roll with spell check there is no need! For some reason I was in the mood to play around on Photobucket and do a little manipulation on a 'nature' photo. This 'dead' tree is in our south pasture. Hubby wants to cut it down, but I want to leave it up one more winter so I can hang stuff in it for the birds. When I started playing with the photo it reminded me of my dad. Years ago my dad took an empty coffee can filled it with gravel, added a (13 comments)
How to find a REALTOR to work with in AURORA, MO www.Aurora-MO.com - 08/28/09 11:50 AM
One of nice things about living in SW Missouri is that I can be just about anywhere I want to within 30 minutes. www.Aurora-MO.com I got a call today from a customer/client who is looking to find a home in Aurora, MO. She wanted to know if I 'knew' of an agent that works the town. Too funny! Of course I do. (That would be ME!!) She has been on my website and was familiar with the search section. In fact she had even requested additional info on a couple of the favorites and was impressed with the speed at which (2 comments)
Cheryl-Willis has a New Domain www.cheryl-willis.com - 08/28/09 09:19 AM
www.cheryl-willis.com is my newest domain to link to my website. I am still in the process of deciding HOW I plan to use the new domains. Right now I am trying a little test to see if I can "even find it" after all it has only been active for a couple of days. (I am guessing that this post will pull it to the top pretty quick!) www.GO-DADDY.com is my favorite place to 'shop' for names. Years ago when I started with RE/MAX- a personal website was the up an coming thing to do. (I love being cutting edge) Now (4 comments)
Mo Broker loves RE/MAX! - 08/20/09 03:20 PM
There is a lot of stuff going on in the Real Estate Industry right now. I am so proud to be associated with a National (Inter-National) company. The tools and resources provided to our agents surpass any that I have seen. Even in a small local market (its all local isn't it?) I am blessed with the peers and technology to serve my clients well. This Missouri Broker loves RE/MAX! Here's a little BRAG I want to share. While I am on the Tooting the Horn mode let me throw in a picture of our Ribbon Cutting last week.
Mr & Mrs Lookie Lou- I have the key to your Dream Home! - 08/14/09 04:18 PM
One of my peers did a tongue in cheek post about LOOKY LOO TOUR GUIDE RULES, I have to admit it as pretty funny. I started to comment on her brilliance to find a way to create a form. (seriously just kidding, I like her idea and may create my own version to have signed). What I really like about her writing was the stereo-type many agents are thinking about 'buyers'. I have to admit the ticket price for her tour seems a little low but in the spirit of giving the buyer what they pay for, it may be a good deal. (9 comments)
Nature and Marketing Contest- Waiting at the front door - 08/14/09 02:06 PM
I I don't want to ruin the post by writing to much, especially b/c the card speaks for itself. Thanks Russ for the inspiration to Think outside the box when it comes to marketing. Sometimes simple is better. I may tweak this a bit later, but am thinking it may be an image I want to work into my post card rotation. Looking forward to seeing the other entries. be good cw (4 comments)
My favorite 10,000- points that is... - 08/14/09 12:07 PM
There have been some good contests going on in the RAIN- If I were a better writer I would take the time to link to the favorites. The one on childhood home got me to thinking about other memories that we make, not just the brick and mortar kind but relationships with peers and associates. So this post is was going to be a short (or not) memory lesson on how I earned my first ten thousand. (AR points that is- My first 10,000 other type points is for another book!) My journey into all things RAIN started here: http://activerain.com/blogsview/47360/lawrence-co-mo back in (5 comments)
I will give three four clues: 1: I have not yet written about the event that required this conversation piece to be created 2: The Picture has been distorted using PHOTOBUCKET 3: The object of my interest was very tasty!! (JMHO) 4: This in NOT Broccoli (see clue #3) Subject will be revealed in a later post.- cw (14 comments)
Missouri voters call your Senator- - 08/04/09 03:23 PM
As a Disclaimer: I am not one to forward e-mails or jump on the bandwagon of what ever is coming down the road. That being said- I do think that when a citizen has a concern that they should be able to make their thoughts known. Today I particiapted in a round of "call your Senator". I know it is a little game that others do way more often then I do. If you live and work in our lovely state of Missouri and have a thought or two that you want to voice, I suggest you do so too. The phone (0 comments)

All hail the power of Active Rain- to make a short story long, the MO Broker (that would be me) was in need of a live body in St. Louis. Not as strange as it sounds. I could go several different ways with this post but I am going to choose to brag on a peer from the RAIN (now favorite agent in St Louis- who is going to get all my referral business- however limited that may be in his area) I am working as a Buyers Agent for a guy purchasing with a FHA loan. The lender has postponed closing (8 comments)

Being blessed to live and work in the SW part of the lovely state of Missouri. This REALTOR, broker,agent, wife,mom, grandma, friend, etc.....decided to call Active Rain a home spot to communicate on all things real estate or local interest related. (Dibbs on blogging about quilts too!)
