national marketing realtors: If You Knew Cindy - 02/20/17 05:29 PM

It was no surprise to anyone who has ever had a student at Minot's Sunnyside Elementary School that Principal Cindy Cook was honored by winning the 2016 - 2017 National Distinguished Principal Award.
Cindy is just a wonderful person to know, always upbeat, always concerned about making sure her students and staff are the best. (My personal opinion as a parent who has had two kids attend Sunnyside.)
When presented the award she said "Feeling sorry for low preforming children does not fix the problem, but rather high expectations produce results and that is the leadership philosophy at Sunnyside".
My hats off to Cindy, … (13 comments)

national marketing realtors: Minot Street Smarts - 02/16/17 05:38 PM

Back in March of 2015n I wrote a post on Potholes, this a similar post except with the exceptional warm weather we are having this year pothole season is earlier and I need to add another dimension... MOTORCYCLES.
1st) As is every year the potholes showing up in Minot are huge and frequent! Driving down East Burdick you maybe taking your life in your hands. You certainly are endangering the health of your vehicle and at the very least there is a good chance you will need to get your car realigned soon.
2nd) On my way to the office this evening I saw the … (13 comments)

national marketing realtors: Nothing Happening Here... WRONG! - 02/15/17 07:31 AM

"Our little town was founded by people who were feed-up with excitement" Bill Gaither
I can proudly say that Bill Gaither was NOT talking about Minot North Dakota when he made that statement.

national marketing realtors: The FROGS at Church Sing Better Than I Do - 02/14/17 01:15 PM

I'm not exaggerating! Of course even a real frog has better singing skills than I but the FROGS at church is our Children's choir.
I'm surprised my kids prefer to sing with this choir over the adult choir because I think they are at the age they could sing with either. Lucky for them they did NOT inherit their dad's singing skills.
If you are new to Minot ND and you are looking for a house of worship that "Rocks The House" you want to visit Our Savior Lutheran Church. We have a ton of musical talent including a pastor who was a professional guitarist with The Young Americans and … (17 comments)

national marketing realtors: Hey Marco, I'm Enjoying The February Heat Wave! - 02/11/17 12:58 PM

 Marco Giancola   I told you it was going to be a scorcher in Minot ND today!
It was a torrid 42 degrees this afternoon so I thought I'd enjoy a cool one on the green grass. I hope I didn't get any unsightly tan lines.
I probably should put that beer down however and work out a little more.
If you should get tired of those oppressive 80 degree temps in Florida you are welcome to come enjoy our absolutely perfect weather in Minot ND. I'll save a cold one for you.

national marketing realtors: The ND State Fair Names The CW Star Headers For 2017 - 02/08/17 08:53 AM

This week the North Dakota State Fair announced it's Country Western Music line-up for the NDSF July 21st - July 29th in Minot ND. I've always been more
of a Rock and Roll fan but I can usually tell you who is on top of the Country Western charts.
Not this year. I don't know a single name on the line up but I know the North Dakota State Fair does a terrific job of bringing in top acts so I have to assume that Jason Aldean, Thomas Rhett, Little Big Town, Brothers Osborne, and Lonestar (oh I guess I have heard of LoneStar) … (8 comments)

national marketing realtors: George Sang Me Out Of My Bad Mood - 02/07/17 06:57 PM

I had one of those days. I gave up drinking years ago (except for a beer every Friday) but today I really needed one bourbon, one scotch, and one beer.
One Bourbon, One Scotch, One Beer is just one of George Thorogood's great bluesy/rock songs. Most well know for Bad To The Bone George Thorogood rocks like no one else I know and although I had not listened to his music in years I knew listening to his music would help lift my spirits.
I headed to YouTube and listened to their compilation of George Thorogood's hits... it did the trick! All is … (14 comments)

national marketing realtors: Rebuilt and Soon to Open, Oak Park Theater - 02/07/17 05:39 PM

Prior to, during, and for a time after the flood flood of 2016 my office was located in the Oak Park Movie Theater.
It was GREAT. On days they didn't have school the kids could come to work with me and enjoy a movie while I got things done in the office.
The exposure was fantastic, I had walk-in business every day. 
I also want to give a shout out to my old Broker, Mr. Earl Allen, the GREATEST Real Estate mind I ever knew. Earl is 97 years old and would still be active today if his evil stepson wouldn't have confiscated all Earl … (4 comments)

national marketing realtors: Poof - 02/06/17 06:21 PM

Most everyone dreams of home ownership but there are many things that can make that dream go poof.
The dream can be destroyed during home ownership as well as even before the dream materializes.
How can that happen? Lots of ways but I will just name a few. 
There has been a lot of talk lately about a possible interest rate hike. An interest rate hike could create enough of an increase in the monthly home payment to put ownership just out of reach for some potential home owners.
Local circumstances can change, in example, a new employer or industry may come to town bringing … (8 comments)

national marketing realtors: Our WILD Super Bowl Party - 02/05/17 06:02 PM

We are a wild bunch here at the Timm household during Super Bowl 51.
I will admit that we do have the game on and I am enjoying seeing Atlanta kicking tail. I also think that Lady GaGa did a real good job at half time (and I am not a big fan because of her political views)
Hope we all enjoy the 2nd half!

national marketing realtors: My Favorite (Blogging) Tools - 02/04/17 06:24 PM

There are so many great tools and systems available for anyone who uses social media today that it's hard to name just a couple, just like it's hard to know about them all and even harder to master more than a handful.
To pick two is really a dificult task but here goes:
My first choice is a free simple program called DuckLink that I found at HERE IS THE LINK. The name means nothing, at least as far as I know, as the program is an easy to use screen capture program. 
As you can see the interface is very simple. I myself … (18 comments)
