valparaiso: Do you know when to stop? - 03/29/13 01:35 PM

Do you know when to stop?  Ok then, just slow down a little.  I was told “we’re only open half a day tomorrow” when scheduling a closing for early next week yesterday.
Today was a busy day for me with around 200 miles put on the car.  Showings in five different cities, a final walk through, and writing an offer.

Personally I don’t … (5 comments)

valparaiso: Round the Clock restaurant - a local favorite - 11/04/12 01:19 PM

Round the clock is a restaurant that has something for everyone. 
The menu has a wide range of food from soup and salads, sandwiches and burgers, to seafood and steak or ribs.

valparaiso: 508 East Sigler St., Hebron, Indiana 46341 - 01/13/12 11:02 AM

 
Hebron, Indiana is at the south end of Porter County.  I’ve lived in Hebron for over twenty years now.  It is a wonderful little sleeper town. 
 
I remember when we were looking for a home and drove through the town for the first time.  Everyone would wave at us and I have to admit it was nice in a hesitant but comforting way. Hebron, Indiana has not grown much over the years.  The graduating classes are around 70 students at Hebron High School.  You can count on the same friendly people to greet you at the local businesses.  The Country … (4 comments)
