Often someone I am working with will ask me if there is another way that they can get a hold of me if needed. I reply that in addition to my websites, bluetooth,email, and more they might just be amazed that they can Google my name and it will always pop up many,many times. I am everywhere, and I think I will always have an edge for my customers and clients
Perhaps it's the OCD part of me but a few years ago when I was nothing short of a machine I decided to set my self up in a viral … (2 comments)

buyer representation: Time stands still in a wonderful lake community; Profile of North lake,Wisconsin - 10/13/08 11:47 AM
I have a special place I like to drive through, and think of when I was younger. Driving through the Town of Merton, and winding down past some of the most premier Lake property in Wisconsin, in not the Midwest, one comes into a quiet little town called North lake. When I was younger my grand father used to take me to the volunter fire department for their chicken barbeques. The church at the end of town was a regular Sunday event. Tubing on North lake, watching the train go by, and one can only imagine the times to be had as … (6 comments)

buyer representation: Don't burn out or live too close to the edge. Don't be working them angels - 10/02/08 03:09 AM
Lets face it; we tend to work a lot harder, and a lot smarter than we used to just a short time ago. If were not we are very actively finding ways to invent new avenues of business that can generate business income, capital to work with, and maintaining a positive approach that does not tend to look like we are somewhat obsequious for the moment.
We have worked with the crab asses, we have worked with the pleasant people, we have worked with the worry warts, we have worked with the know it all, and the ones that question everything … (8 comments)

buyer representation: Buying and Selling;Intuition leads to Destiny, and a science of application. - 09/30/08 09:33 AM
I will never be able to control your intuitive thoughts ( simply put, your gut feelings), but if I could I would ask you get away from all the chicken little syndromes that are out there. If you believe in something and think about it enough, it will happen. This applies whether it is good or bad. I was reading my email from Bob Proctor ( ) this morning, and just about everyday Bob hits a chord in me. He also made a pretty good movie called The Secret. Every once in a while I google "the secret" and watch the … (9 comments)

buyer representation: Ice scating in Wisconsin in September? It is by my neck of the woods. - 09/29/08 02:09 PM
Recently I was talking to a charming friend of mine from California in the rain and she asked me what I was going to do with my son on the upcoming weekend. When I told her that I thought my son and I would go ice scating I could hear in her voice that she thought it was getting cold in Wisconsin pretty early in the year.
I corrected her by telling her that there are many indoor ice scating rinks in my area. Three all wintin twenty minutes. Doesn't everyone take there kid for hockey? Perhaps not, but I find … (8 comments)

buyer representation: The Countryside is coming alive with color in Waukesha and Washington County,Wisconsin - 09/28/08 12:39 PM
Another wonderful  Sunday in my area of Wisconsin. My son and I go to service at the Jerusalem Presbyterian church with all it's charm; large stain glass windows, large ceilings, open area, old world charm, and a real sense of meaning and fulfillment follows that keeps this man in perspective of what really is important in life, it's fragility, and for me, this is something that my son and I can do because it keeps us level to the Earth. Every week our wonderful Pastor gives a sermon on something that hits home. She truly has a talent for bringing out the … (10 comments)

buyer representation: The warm days of summer are fewer.What would Wisconsin be without pumpkin stands in Fall? - 09/27/08 03:37 AM
It is at this time of year that my business seems to pick up big time. Whether it is investors getting ready to invest before years end, people driving through areas where they enjoy the leaves changing colors, or whatever reason, it seems to correlate with this time of year.

It is also interesting to see all the Pumpkin stands and farms getting set for pumpkin sales. It is a time of year where kids go through a pumpkin path and picking their favorite pumpkin. Some how it still seems strange to me to give a kid a knife and tell the … (10 comments)

buyer representation: A big eye opener at the Charles Horwitz Planetarium, in Waukesha, Wisconsin - 09/21/08 10:40 AM
Charles Z Horwitz Planetarium   My son was asking me how old the universe was and I told him scientists used to think about twenty billion years, but with the use of the hubble telescope and measuring Capella and Procyon stars they narrowed it down to about thirteen to fourteen billion. He then asked me what is was like back then and I just look at him and tell him I was not around. He thought I was older than dirt before and now this really puts a new twist on things.

The Charles Horwitz planetarium is located in the … (5 comments)

buyer representation: What do you say.Is it that time of year already? Applefest in Waukesha County,WI - 09/20/08 03:11 AM
Well I believe it is that time of year again in Wisconsin when apples are everywhere and we do our best to honor them. I tend to agree with my son Spencer that they are best featured when in pie form. An art form that consumes you, or we consume.
Saturday we are off to Applefest, and as I try to get rid of this cold I know I am going on Hayrides, eating until the cows come home, and seeing all the nice smiling faces that say Tom "Have you been effected by gravity; you look different"
I reply with … (10 comments)
