jackie hillen: Don’t be complacent in life, keep reaching! Challenge yourself! - 03/02/19 01:35 PM
Don’t be complacent in life, keep reaching! Challenge yourself!
I keep telling myself this. Saying this and doing it are absolutely two different things. It seems as though we stay so busy with our daily tasks, we don’t take time to learn new things.
For the new year, my resolution was to challenge myself. I have not forgotten this resolution, I was just a bit slower than I hoped to be at pulling the trigger. But now, I’m excited to say, that I’ve taken time and learned something new.
I’ve been told numerous times that video is viewed more than photos, … (2 comments)

jackie hillen: How to Cancel Windows 10 Upgrade - 06/11/16 07:33 AM
While in a rush to find something on my laptop, I was surprised to see Windows 10 installing.  I didn't request the installation, it was simply just happening.  After an hour of tapping my foot, unable to cancel the installation, Windows 10 was available for me.... 
My thought was, no problem, I didn't want the upgrade, but I could deal with it.  I went to find the file I desperately needed on dropbox.  Small problem, no dropbox.  I then searched my document file to see I had NO DOCUMENTS!  Ok, relax I said to myself, all I need to do is reinstall dropbox … (4 comments)

The Springville Rodeo is fast approaching.  It's a wonderful weekend of family fun and entertainment.  If you've never been to a rodeo, you're in for a treat.  There are lots of events including barrel racing, bull riding, muttin bustin, and many others.

jackie hillen: Gifts that warm my heart - 12/06/14 06:15 AM
Christmas is the time of year for giving back to the community.  For the past 5+ years, I've been working with my brokerage to provide Christmas toys to the children of a community that would otherwise not reveive a toy at Christmas.
There are approximately 800 children in the community of Poplar.  The project is called Poplar Santa. The project started many years ago, when a gentleman living in Poplar realized that many children in the area were going without Christmas gifts, so he started dressing as Santa and he and his wife would purchase gifts and wrap one for each child. … (5 comments)

jackie hillen: My home for the Holidays... - 12/06/14 05:38 AM
My home for the holidays is built by my favorite local builder, Gary Smee, with Smee Builders.  I sit at his model home selling homes when not out showing and selling resale homes.  
This is the first year that we've decorated a model home for Christmas and it's been so much fun for everyone to come visit.  We've been included in the Annual Zonta Christmas Tour of homes, which included over 200 visitors in four hours.  I can't think of a better way to spread Christmas cheer than to work at a place I call home.
Thank you to Smee … (4 comments)

jackie hillen: Purchase a NEW HOME for $850 Down! - 12/05/14 07:01 AM
It's amazing to me the number of people who still rent their house, when they can own a new home for the same amount, or less than rent!
In a day and age where everything costs more than it used to, it's nice to know that with interest rates still very low, and the price of the home staying strong, you can purchase a home with very little down, and enjoy the monthly payments with taxes and insurance at the same or less than what many are paying for a monthly home rental.
Is the reason that so many people continue … (3 comments)

jackie hillen: My Home Town - Porterville California - 04/02/14 03:16 AM
I've lived in California all my life and have lived in the Central Valley for most of those years.  The thing I love most about the Central Valley is the ability to drive a short distance to the mountains, or in the opposite direction to the beach.  Both choices are just a short car ride away.
