ofallon illinois: Just Sold to a Happy Family in O'Fallon, IL - 03/11/13 12:43 PM

Just excited to report that there's a family of happy first time home buyers moving in this spacious, two story home in O'Fallon, Illinois.
Centrally located in O'Fallon, close to a large grocery store, easy access to Highway 50, Scott Air Force Base, Greenmount Shopping Center, St. Clair Mall, and Interstate 64. Another big benefit in living in O'Fallon, Illinois is its proximity to St. Louis, Missouri, a mere 25 minutes away for more shopping, entertaining, and dining.

ofallon illinois: Big Changes to BofA Short Sales Process - 04/09/12 01:21 PM
Though the real estate market in O'Fallon, Illinois is not as badly affected as some markets in the country, this is good news nonetheless to Bank of America consumers (and their agents) facing short sales in Southwestern Illinois.
Bank of America just announced a new Short Sale Process.
You may have heard it already but BofA is changing their short sale process and documentation drastically to streamline the process to reduce the approval porcess to only 20 days. YES 20 days!!

These changes are so extensive that unfortunately Equator will be down for a few hours during the over night … (8 comments)

ofallon illinois: Please Do Not Sit On The Pumpkin Patch in Belleville, Illinois - 10/16/11 12:05 PM
Please Do Not Sit On the Pumpkin Patch in Belleville, Illinois
It's been a beautiful Sunday here in O'Fallon, Illinois--in the 80s, perfect for driving around looking for the great pumpkin patch. We decided to see what Eckert's Orchards has for families since this is the time of year for hay rides for all ages, picking the perfect pumpkins--mostly for moms, but for kids, too, and topping it off with a cup of frozen custard, or a meal at the family restaurant.

We got there and the parking lots were full, people everywhere, and a cheerful atmosphere... it was overwhelming, … (23 comments)

ofallon illinois: A Pleasant Day in O'Fallon, Illinois - 06/12/11 09:47 AM
A Pleasant Day in O'Fallon, Illinois
It's hard to believe that here we are, almost mid-June, and the weather is perfectly pleasant today. We've had searing heat in the high 90s and high humidity for the last two weeks. The kind of temperature that saps your energy when you're outside and makes you feel like you're in a sauna. It's typical here in O'Fallon, Illinois but one can't get used to it. When you're showing homes in high heat and humidity, it makes you want to go through the home fast without going outside to check the backyard.

ofallon illinois: Mowing and Beer Drinking in O'Fallon, Illinois - 06/03/11 01:28 PM

I have never been on a riding lawn mower, much less ridden one while mowing, but I heard that it makes mowing much easier.  I am not a beer drinker, but I heard that it tastes great, and less filling, especially on a hot day. I imagine after mowing the lawn in the O'Fallon, Illinois summer heat, like today's weather of 94° a cold beer has to be very refreshing.

Now we all know that if you shake a can of soda, or beer for that matter, funny things happen. I heard that if you are mowing on a riding lawn … (12 comments)

ofallon illinois: Goodbye To The Blogging Challenge - 05/31/11 12:16 PM
Goodbye To The Blogging Challenge

WOW.  Is one of the words that I can say out loud about this blogging challenge.  I dared myself to do it, since writing was not my favorite subject back in the college days, or any day for that matter.  It's an exercise that I probably won't impose on myself again any time soon... unless there's 3,000 points (or more) involved. LOL
Well, how does it feel?  Relieved and apprehensive at the same time.  Relieved that I won't have to meet a daily writing deadline.  Apprehensive that I'll fall back into not blogging consistently … (20 comments)

ofallon illinois: A Toad, A Pair of Pelicans, B2B, And Brunch With Randy Travis - 05/22/11 12:47 PM
A Toad, A Pair of Pelicans, B2B, And Brunch With Randy Travis
Well, all true except they're not real. We had brunch at the local Cracker Barrel in Shiloh, Illinois, a good twelve minute drive from where we live in O'Fallon, Illinois.  As is always the case, we had to wait (today 15 minutes, somedays more) to get seated.  Anybody who's been to this chain knows that there's a gift shop to wander through - smart feature of their business model - so I did.  (Hubby always stands in the corner with his book, sometimes takes naps while standing. lol)
