I was leaving for my first appointment of the day recently and I was admiring the beautiful sunny day and freshly green grass of spring.  But wait, there are dandelions everywhere!  Dandelions: the destroyer of lawns and enemy of the weekend gardener.  Ugh, need to weed and feed this weekend. ...
  I know it's been a long time coming, but good things often are.  After a long, dreary and particularly chilly, winter.  Spring is finally here.    And perhaps Spring in the economic sense also.  The news, as we are all aware of, has not been good.  Economic, political and spiritual crisis still...

In this ultra-competitive marketplace vacant homes can take twice as long to sell as furnished ones.  Why?  Buyers sometimes have a difficult time visualizing how their belongings will work within a space.  Sellers, face it.  The new curb appeal, or drive- by, is actually viewing a listing on-lin...
 Okay, so the game does't really have anything to do with real estate.  However, who wouldn't want to own real estate and live in Central Ohio, home of THE Ohio State University.  Buckeye fever keeps us mighty warm during these cold months. (yes, I am totally freaking out, won't be sleeping much ...
