My seven year old grandson recently received an award for being A Model 2nd Grader.  He was not quite sure what it meant.  His mother explained his efforts, attitude, preparation and performance were exceptional, and his teacher hoped other students would model their behavior after his.  He felt ...
I am in awe of many of the bloggers I read on Active Rain.  I admire the dedication, the regularity and the variety of topics covered.  Who knew real estate could be so fascinating?  I can count on many of my favorite writers to deliver day after day a thought provoking post filled with fresh con...
It is spring and the signs are everywhere; especially in the real estate market.  The second half of March was alive with new activity--my Goggle calendar greeted me each morning with a fresh list of proof the market is gathering momentum.  This morning my cell phone rang a few minutes before 8:0...

When everyone is cutting back, putting off and holding back it seems a bit unrealistic to expect the economy to magically begin to expand.  Something has to ignite the hum of movement.  From my perspective I'm seeing energy and confidence building on my little peninsula of the world. Sparks are b...
Yesterday's news was worthy of a second helping. I made it home from work in time to hear the national news lead off with some good news about the stock market--up over 500 points. What a refreshing change to start with something positive.  Yes, there was more than enough gloom and doom sandwiche...
