united country: "Find Your Freedom" booth in Marshfield, MO - 05/02/08 01:33 PM
Last weekend, our Marshfield office had a booth at the Annual Cherry Blossom Festival in Marshfield, Missouri. (Read about all the events of the festival HERE.)As we were setting up our booth Saturday morning, a candidate for Webster County Sheriff  came over. After a little chit chat, he said, "This isn't your typical real estate booth." Later on in the day, I was talking to a couple who recently moved to Marshfield from Arizona. As they were walking away, the man leaned over and whispered, "This isn't your typical real estate booth. I love it." We had a nice crowd, almost all … (4 comments)

united country: From Convention: Enhanced Marketing Solutions - 02/26/08 08:53 AM
I've been biting at the bit, waiting for all the posts to come rolling in from our convention goers. So far, nada.
I did receive a "briefing" from my two agents that were able to attend. I thought I would share one item that they brought back:Enhanced Marketing Solutions (EMS)
In addition to services offered to auction properties, EMS is a solution for developments and premier properties. There are four basic levels:
Platinum EMS: for properties and homes ranging from $5 - $100+ millionGold EMS: for properties in he $1 -$5 million rangeSilver EMS:a good fit for those in the $500 - $1 million … (5 comments)

united country: The Power of a Blog: United Country Convention a hot blog topic - by non UC'ers - 02/24/08 05:25 AM
 Due to an unforeseen circumstance with my daughter, I was not able to attend the United Country Convention that ended yesterday. One of my agents took my place.
With two agents at the Convention, I have received phone call updates and I am biting at the bit waiting for all the handouts they picked up for me to arrive back in Laclede County. In the mean time, I've been searching the net, looking for little tidbits of Convention information. I've turned into a convention information junkie. (CIJ)
I've been pleasantly surprised to find a few blog posts by people outside our United family. … (6 comments)

united country: Grown in Missouri - RICE - 07/22/07 04:42 PM
Over 210,000 acres of Missouri land is planted in Rice! After living in Missouri for almost eight years and selling real estate for a little over five, this really shouldn't have been a surprise to me! But it was... I was reading the "Legislative End-of-Session" report sent to us by our Missouri State Representative Darrell Pollock. (Yes, Darrell, people really do read this stuff!) A sentence jumped out at me:
                            "HB 741 also helps to promote the vital Missouri rice industry by ..."
Vital Missouri rice industry??
I had no idea Missouri had a rice industry, vital or not! I have since found out … (8 comments)

united country: A 26 year family tradition... in Long Lane, Missouri - 07/06/07 04:20 PM
   Long Lane, MO is a rural town located 12 miles east of Buffalo, MO and 12 miles west of Lebanon, MO along Hwy 32. To say Long Lane is a small town is probably an understatement - the "city limit" sign doesn't list a population nor does "Long Lane" show up on the US Census Bureau map! Locals estimate the population to be around 90 people.
Travel along Hwy 32 into Long Lane, and you'll find the local post office:     
Then you'll come across the fire department (volunteer):
Past the fire department you'll find the general store and Miss Daisy - … (1 comments)

united country: Mom, only seven more years! - 05/16/07 03:20 PM

In Conway, MO today was the last day of school. As of 1:05 pm today, my kids had "officially" declared themselves one grade level older - our son is now a second grader, our daughter a fifth grader.
As I went through the final papers, the stack of art projects and the final report card, I couldn't help but feel a little sad. Not to worry, said my daughter as she patted my shoulder. "In only seven more years I'll be in college!"
Only... seven... more...
Okay, okay, I get it... only seven more years....
Both my kids thought that was a pretty cool … (3 comments)

united country: United Country Color Catalogs - 05/08/07 02:02 PM

While looking through past Active Rain posts I found one by Dusty in Texas. He referred to the United Country color catalog as "taking an arm chair tour of America." What a great description of our book!
The power of the color catalog cannot be under estimated - I'm sure many of you have similar stories: Back in 2003, after only a few weeks with United Country I received a call from an older gentleman. He was ready to buy and wanted to know about a particular property.
As I listened to him, I became more and more confused. We talked a few minutes … (1 comments)
