kankakee county: The reign is over ...........time to get my business moving!!! - 08/22/08 12:40 AM
 It was a bittersweet moment last night when I became "past - President" of the Kankakee County Association of Realtors.  A tremendous weight has been lifted from my shoulders, but I suddenly feel like I have nothing to do. No purpose!  ;)   I'm not used to being idle in my time. 
   Well, it's time to get serious and get back to business.  Being President is a wonderful experience.  You learn so much.  You have to,, so many come to you for answers you have to know what you are talking about!  But I became so busy I started to meet myself … (1 comments)

kankakee county: Kankakee County storm pics - 08/07/08 02:05 AM
 The pictures below are in the Historic Riverview Area of Kankakee County.   Hundred year old trees were picked up and dropped like they were matchsticks. 
  The storms hit Monday night and left thousands without power.  A second wave of storms hit on Tuesday - with a tornado touching down by St. Anne at 6:00 a.m.  Area residents were still without power as of last night with many businesses, including the courthouse still without power.

kankakee county: Kankakee County storm alerts - 03/30/08 12:22 PM
   If you go to http://www.sheriffalert.com/ and register, you can receive early tornado & misc. special emergency information from the sheriffs department on your cell phone. This is a free service & provides some early warning for the rural people who can not hear the sirens.
   I pass this site out to all my clients who live in Kankakee County.  Herscher High school just sent information to parents stating they would begin using this system to alert parents to snow days.  I haven't seen that one come through but the storm alerts work quite well.

kankakee county: Momence, Illinois - 03/10/08 01:07 AM
   Located 50 miles due south of Chicago on the historic Dixie Highway, the city of Momence is the oldest town in Northeastern Illinois, being established in 1834.  Early settlers called Momence the "Border Town" to describe it's position between 1800's civilization and the American frontier. 
   When fur trader Gurdon Saltenstall Hubbard first ventured into the region to establish a trading post, most of the area was still wilderness, prairie, woodland, and marsh.  The area was home to the Native American Pottawatomi, whose chief was Momenza, which inspired the name "Momence."  The trail Hubbard established between Chicago (Ford Dearborn) and Vincennes … (1 comments)

kankakee county: Market slowing or freezing cold temps? - 02/19/08 12:10 AM
 
 As you can see, the market has slowed down significantly in our area for January, but you have to realize, it was January!  We've had record precipitation this year and abnormally cold days!  There was significant flooding in Iroquois county and flood warnings in parts of Kankakee County.  I'm waiting to see what February holds with the -12 temps we are having today - February 19th! 
  The buyers are still out there!  I've had a number of showings the past 2 weeks - even with the temperatures holding a steady 10 degrees or less.

kankakee county: Habitat for Humanity - 02/15/08 02:38 PM
  I just started volunteering for Kankakee County Habitat for Humanity.  It's a wonderful project and puts the help where we need it most - right here in our own hometown.  Many (yes, I was under this misconception also) are under the impression that houses are just given away. Habitat houses are built for those in need and then sells them to homeowner partners through a no-profit loan.  Because the houses are built mainly by volunteers, mortgage payments can be kept reasonably low for those unable to obtain conventional financing.  Habitat builds houses with people in need, without regard to race.
