minot real estate: Young Lovers - 05/28/17 12:26 PM

Another couple of shots I got in the park yesterday were these two young lovers sitting by the pond at the entrance of the Zoo Office and Education Center.
And what do you suppose they were doing?
Text me your love.
Gee whiz, I think this fellow is a little to focused on his worship of super heroes.

minot real estate: Baby It's Warm Outside. - 11/07/16 10:06 AM

The Southerners reading this may think I'm crazy saying it's warm outside when our highs have been in the upper 50's and 60's but those are record highs here in North Dakota for this time of year.
Of course the photo above the post and the three little girls with the hose to the right are stock photos from some royalty free art I have.
This warm weather is a real blessing for those on a fixed income as we could just as easily be experiencing subzero temps at this time of year and running up a big fuel bill heating our homes.

minot real estate: One More Time & The Radio Gets It! - 11/06/16 09:12 AM

 Several years ago I decided it 
was a waste of my time to sit down and watch the Vikings on TV. After sitting on my rear for 3 hours and having my team find new ways to lose I decided to listen on the radio so I could at least do something productive while the Vikings lost.
Well after yesterdays loss to the Lions I'm ready to shoot my radio and burn my Vikings memorabilia. Just when I thought they couldn't find a new way to lose they surprised me again.
While the Vikings keep finding ways to lose you can rest assured National Marketing Realtors … (10 comments)

minot real estate: A Presentation Of Minot North Dakota - 10/05/16 06:29 AM

I just put together this slide presentation of Minot North Dakota. Soon I hope to figure out how to make my audio presentation match the video. I will need to do this by figuring out how to slow down the progression of slides to match my description. In the mean time here is the video with my audio transcript below it. I hope you enjoy it.
 
Minot is nicknamed “The Magic City” and the slogan “Why Not Minot” is helpful in instructing newcomers as to how to pronounce the name Minot.
 
Minot North Dakota is nestled in the Mouse River Valley. The City … (6 comments)

minot real estate: Bob... Bruce... Nothing Alike! - 08/21/16 04:11 AM

Fairly often I am asked if I'm Bruce Willis. What would Bruce Willis be doing in Minot ND. Now we do see Josh Duhamel and even Ferggie here once in awhile walking down the street but Josh was born and raised here in Minot ND. Not Bruce.
As you can see from these side by side photos I don't even remotely resemble Bruce Willis.
  
 
  
See! Not even remotely alike.
So, when you walk into National Marketing Realtors in Minot ND know for sure thgat Bob Timm is the Broker/Owner, not Bruce Willis.

minot real estate: Homeowners, What You Plant... May Get You Stung! - 08/07/16 02:35 AM

Apple trees are beautiful in the spring and most of us really enjoy the fruit as well.
What none of us enjoy is the clean up when we have a bountiful harvest.
Believe it or not my family and I had cleaned up an amount of apples easily equal to what you see on the ground here just 3 days prior. Now, after a stormy evening we get to do it all over again. Judging by what I can see in the tree we will doing it again and again.
Fruit trees are always beautiful and the harvest can be tasty BUT if you have family … (12 comments)

minot real estate: Mr. Realtor, What Does Contingent Mean? - 07/31/16 11:26 AM

I've heard this question from both Buyers and Sellers of Real Estate as well as new agents pondering the difference between Contingent and Pending. To stay focused I will just stick with contingent.
If you Google the word contingent the definition that comes up has 3 meanings, the one that applies here will look allot like this: An agreement will occur only after a specified action has been carried out with desired results. 
Try this example: Tonight as my Bride and I were sitting on the deck and the sky above us was as pictured to the right. We decided we would go for a bike ride contingent upon it … (6 comments)

minot real estate: What School District Are You In. Your Realtor Should Make It Clear! - 07/22/16 01:53 AM

Don't ASSume your kids will go to the school across the street. School districts do not always follow a logical pattern.
On the cover of today's Minot Daily News is a story of two property owners who purchased a home near Minot's newest elementary school only to find out after closing that their child will be going to school several miles away.
So where was the communication breakdown? The info to the right shows that the listing agent made it clearly available to the Selling agent. According to the article the home Buyers say the blame lays squarely on their agent who did not inform them. … (6 comments)

minot real estate: Think You Know Your Vintage Vehicles? Bet You Don't Remember This One. - 07/20/16 05:36 AM

Is the name on this truck a prank or a joke, was this a real model made by Ford Motors. This one was parked near my office this morning.
The license plates say 1976 (Pioneer Plates). I'm sure there have been many modifications to this vehicle, it looks like a Jeep make-over to me and I can not find anything on the web about a 1976 Ford Pick-up truck called a Tonka. Not even on Wikipedia. There is a new model but a 1976 model?
What do you think?
I'm no automotive expert but if you are confused about housing and Real Estate stop … (10 comments)

minot real estate: 100 Degrees, Blogging & Ear Scratching - 07/19/16 10:50 AM

What could be better? 100 degrees, my Blog Bunny, and my BIGGEST fan.
8:00 PM and the temp is down to 85 degrees.
My blogging bunny stopped by to show me how to scratch your ear with your leg... I didn't try it.
Also on the deck with me is my biggest fan. It's a 1/4 HP furnace blower I salvaged from an old furnace that had other problems. It isn't pretty but the breeze is beautiful on a deck when the temp is in the upper 80's or beyond.

minot real estate: More Family Fun Coming To The Old Oak Park Center - 07/13/16 07:36 AM

The Oak Park Movie Theater is making a triumphant return to Minot's old Oak Park Center soon. This is going to make a lot of folks happy as it is/was the only alternative to the Carmike Theater chain in the mall. The Oak Park Theater will once again offer "second run" movies at the reasonable rate of $5.00 and they are also opening a second and maybe 3rd screen. Prior to the flood my office was actually located right inside the theater, it created a lot of walk-in business for me which I really miss.
See the ladder in the picture? That … (15 comments)

minot real estate: Busy as a .... - 07/05/16 06:16 AM

Bee!
 
Actually the bee above is not that busy, he's dead. I just hit the nest with some wasp killer and instead of falling to the ground he got caught in a spider web. It must be a pretty fine web as neither the camera or I see it.
Unlike the bee I'm alive and I've been extremely busy. No complaints here, quite the opposite, I'm thanking the Lord that he has greatly blessed me and National Marketing Realtors.
The purpose of this post is not to brag but to explain why I've been a little less active as a blogger over the past month. … (13 comments)

New to Minot? You don't want to miss the ND State Parade.
 
The ND State Fair Parade is held the 1st Saturday of The State Fair. 
This is the only parade held in Minot ND and it is huge. If you want a good seat to watch from you need to set up early. I, and many others actually set up the night before the parade by parking our vehicles along the route where we want to sit.
By 8:00 AM you will be lucky to find a good shady spot. If you wait till 9:00 you will most likely find yourself parking blocks … (2 comments)

minot real estate: Townhouse above the Beautiful Puppy Dog Coulee - 06/27/16 10:53 PM

This Townhouse is located atop the beautiful Puppy Dog Coulee in SE Minot. Great views and a excellent location with easy access to shopping, dining, recreation, and more. There are tons of features to this home but my favorite is the view, followed by it's proximity to my favorite store, Menards and to the church I attend.

 
 More pictures and an interior walk through to come. A deep cleaning and de-cluttering of the home is scheduled as well as some floor coverings to be replaced.

minot real estate: Moths Have Big Heads - 06/26/16 10:25 AM

I happened to notice this little guy on the exterior wall of our home next to the front door. He is only about the size of a dime but he seemed so out of proportion with his BIG Head.
I didn't really notice his beauty until I got the picture into my Photoscape program to crop and resize the picture. One I did crop and re-size his color really came to life including what looks like a nice head of brown hair (yes I'm jealous).
Like the bumble bee I wondered how this thin could fly when it appears that half it's body is head. I know all moths … (10 comments)
