Anything and everything about real estate, life, revitalizing and redeveloping Cleveland and what's on my mind and your mind!
Nothing and I mean nothing has taught me more about life than baseball (sorry Nick, I can't surf). Today is one of those feel good days when two of my all time favorite players got elected to The Baseball Hall of Fame. Cal Ripken Jr. was someone we all new we'd see when we went to games at Memori...
Hey All You Don Quixote Home Builders....Were you the chickens or the eggs? Did neighborhoods start to get revitalized before you built new construction homes or condos? Or did you go into the neighborhoods and lead the way?To a large extent, a lot of Home Builders seem like they enjoy a good cha...
The anticipation of a new year, full of promise and hope. Even though I always resist making resolutions on New Year's Day, I have been memed and have no choice.

Did you know that a lot of movies were filmed here? That we have a vibrant independent film community? And that (drum roll) the C...
If Watergate happened today, Woodward and Bernstein would have a blog; and 'Deep Throat' would have contacted them through blogging instead of in an underground parking lot. That is the conclusion I reached after reading Chapter 9 of Realty Blogging. Why? Blogs have become a primary source of inf...
Senator John McCain (R-Arizona) has created quite a stir with both negative words about the blogosphere and more importantly, with legislation that could affect it. I'm sure the political blogs, which have been around longer than most blogs, have irritated politicians from the get-go. The Drudge ...
Homes are selling, even in Cleveland, don't let anyone else tell you otherwise. What is helping them sell, over the many others buyers have to choose from?
