Anything and everything about real estate, life, revitalizing and redeveloping Cleveland and what's on my mind and your mind!
My pal Linda Davis and I banter back and forth about politics. We are rarely of the same political philosophy but good friendships survive that! Linda says I am Carole The Realtor® This tag has been blogged about on Active Rain (social network for the real estate profession)  over the last few we...
A couple months ago, I found myself in talks with Bryan Gillooly (Executive Dir) and Sister Linda (Board Member) at Bellaire Puritas Development Corporation (BPDC). We were interviewing each other, as to whether or not I should be on the Board. Last night's Ward 20 Neighborhood Summit made me eve...
The Election is almost over and it's going to be time to roll up our sleeves and get to prioritizing issues that need to be tackled. If you had told any of us five years ago that our Government would be willing to pump money into banks, financial institutions or anything else, we'd have all said...

Are you tired of negativity in your city and among your neighbors? Do you feel like you live in a community without the actual community cohesiveness t...
Cleveland is divided up into approximately 36 neighborhoods and I think most are aligned with their own community development corporation (CDC). Last time I explored Detroit Shoreway;  now we head Downtown to Historic Gateway.  This is one of my favorite areas. The variety of things to do will bl...
You know how sometimes you walk through a neighborhood and the energy is almost palpable? I swear you can feel the vibrancy of Detroit Shoreway when you are there. This Thursday we have a Twilight Tour in D/S and you might want to take the opportunity to try out new eateries, shop some galleries,...
