brecksville: Pilgrim Inn in Brecksville Ohio to be Replaced by a Skilled Nursing/Rehabilitation Facility - 02/20/09 03:22 AM
For many years the Pilgrim Inn was a landmark in the heart of Brecksville, but has been defunct for quite some time.

brecksville: Brecksville Ohio Community Center Hosts Internet Safety Presentation - 01/18/09 05:53 AM
A little while back I wrote a  post about teenagers and their cell phones, and how it is a federal offense for kids under the age of 18 to take nude or partial nude photos and then forward them to their friend's cell phones. The legal ramifications are frightening.As important, if not more so, is Internet Safety for Our Kids. In a matter of a few exchanged e-mails or conversations over the internet, your teen and yes, even your pre-teen can be having a conversation with a cyber stalker, who can easily turn into a real life stalker or pedophile, with … (2 comments)

brecksville: CLUB CHAOS WINTER EYE CANDY BROADVIEW HEIGHTS & BRECKSVILLE OHIO - 01/10/09 03:36 PM
It's not uncommon where I live to come home and see anywhere from 2-10 deer in my front yard. My daughter and I were coming home late one evening and saw  two prancing about on someone's front lawn after a fresh snowfall.  Only 1 would cooperate for this picture. They have often visited me right at my front door.


These trees are both in my front yard and we had gotten about 6-8inches of snow.  It came so quickly that I didn't have time to replace my scarecrow with my snowman!

 
This, in my opinion is one … (10 comments)

brecksville: SMALL REAL ESTATE FIRM OR LARGE ONE? WHICH IS BETTER FOR BUYERS AND SELLERS? - 12/09/08 05:21 AM
 
When I began my real estate career in 1986, I was with a national brokerage. My husband and I moved to another town and I joined a very large, but not national brokerage in the area. That company always ranked either first or second in our market. After 5 years there, I joined a very small brokerage (average number of agents was FOUR) and stayed there for 10 years. I joined them for a new construction opportunity which ended up being modest, at best.
When I made that move, I believed that SELECTION OF THE AGENT WAS THE MOST IMPORTANT CONSIDERATION FOR BUYERS AND … (5 comments)

brecksville: A TRIBUTE TO RE/MAX OWNERS JUDY AND JIM DARWAL! - 12/07/08 04:12 AM
Sometime in October of 2005 I had the good fortune of crossing paths with Judy Darwal. I had a few transactions with Judy in the past and had a great deal of respect for her.  In dealing with Judy, she was easy to work with, professional, courteous and best of all WORKED HER END OF THE DEAL!
So on this day in October she attended a broker's open house that I was hosting.  She mentioned to me that she and her husband Jim had just purchased a RE/MAX franchise and thought I would be a nice addition. I must admit, Jim called me … (6 comments)

Any person who is a life partner with a realtor or is a son or daughter to them truly knows how much work a good real estate professional does.
So I'd like to publicly recognize my husband Lou, and my daughter Erin, but I'll try to be brief!
My husband Lou (for 24 years) has always been my "go to guy". He has supported me in real estate for over 22 years and not once has he ever doubted my ability to make it in this business. He's also helped with anything I ask of him.
LOU CAN YOU:
