It's a winning election for me--not for the reasons you might think

Real Estate Broker/Owner with Riverbend Realty, Cape Girardeau, MO 2004008944

This election night marks a major triumph for me--no matter what the vote count turns out to be. Four weeks ago, I had quadruple bypass surgery, and a huge goal for me has been to be well enough to work the polls for this election. You see, I checkhave been an election judge for over 20 years, and I am now a supervisory judge. Only four weeks to recover enough to work from 4:45 am to around 9 pm seemed unrealistic to everyone--except ME.

Our county clerk, Kara Clark Summers, kept my slot open; because she was willing to let me try. Maybe they were surprised when I actually showed up early this morning. Maybe they were surprised in early afternoon that I was still there. When I showed up at the county seat this evening with my precinct's other supervisory judge, it's fair to say they were surprised. I made it through the long, grueling day and an election with near-historic voter turn-out.

I did it, and working toward that goal has helped push me to recover. Thanks to all of my fellow judges and to Kara for giving me a chance to meet that goal. Of course, I'm going to be in bed much of the day tomorrow. At some point, I might even admit to the doctor what I did. Maybe...maybe not. I sure did not ask his opinion ahead of time. I was pretty sure what the answer would be.

I'll go back to behaving now, I promise...and I might even admit to being really tired and in some pain. Maybe I might admit that I am not fully recovered, but I am victorious!

If you are looking for a foreclosure in Cape Girardeau, Perry, N. Scott, or Bollinger counties, I am the region's most experienced REO agent. As the area's ONLY Fannie Mae direct listing agent, I list more foreclosure properties than any other agent in this MLS. I am among the few local agents approved to both list and sell HUD properties. Give me a call if you are looking for help with the purchase of a foreclosure property.

______________________________________________________  for Fannie Mae properties  for Freddie Mac properties for HUD properties (foreclosures that were FHA financed)


If you want up-to-the-minute real estate information, the only way to get it is to have an agent set you up on auto-notify with immediate delivery. Your listing information will come directly from MLS only when it comes from an MLS member. You willl not have to wait for the information to roll to those other websites, and you will not have to check multiple sources. It's free, so why not give me a chance to help you in your search?

NO OTHER SOURCE is as complete or as fast as your local REALTOR®’s source. This is not just an advertisement for REALTORS®--it is information about how the system really works.
