Thursday, June 12th, 2008 Kaukauna, WI will host a Town Hall meeting at the Kaukauna High School with Barack Obama right here in the Fox Valley. I pondered about attending this historic event and then this morning I was in Kaukauna previewing a home and decided to swing by the school and see if tickets were still available.

realtor: Windows Vista is a Funny Thing - 05/16/08 04:57 AM
First off I'd like to thank Marchel Peterson for inviting me to the Windows Vista & Office 2007 group here at Active Rain.

I recently changed my cell service and switched to a Palm Treo. I was anxious to get the Palm up and running and have all of my info easily accessable to my laptop and phone.

realtor: Appleton and Fox Cities Home Buyers and Sellers Are Active... But Cautious - 04/22/08 10:21 AM
Appleton, Fox Cities and surrounding areas are alive with home buyers and home sellers but there's something different about them. I don't mean different in a bad way either, far from it. I've found that both home buyers and sellers are very educated on the national real estate market conditions which in turn makes them proceed cautiously. Even though buyers an sellers may be cautious they're eager to learn more about our market to help themselves get past their fears and I'm eager to tell them.
As a Realtor working in the current real estate market conditions I really need to stay on top of things both … (2 comments)
