Hoping it Rains.......

By
Services for Real Estate Pros with Referral Group Incorporated

I was away recently for a couple of weeks. My former lawn guy didn't show and I returned to almost a foot of overgrown lawn and shrubs. Luckily I was able to find someone to come and cut my lawn. The new guy is considerably older and works alone, doesn't rake, do leaves or plow, but he otherwise responsible. It is refreshing to have someone do what they say and be there. My lawn is not what is was but I believe it can recover with some rain, so my fingers are crossed.

When you think about real estate, it is time to focus. I have helped people for close to thirty years in all areas, and made the process not only simple but enjoyable. Why should you go it alone or settle for less? Call me and find a partner to help, direct and get you where you want to be.

It's always driven me nuts when people don't do what they promise. Argh.

Sheila I had to laugh about 'being responsible'. We've had our share of landscapers over the year and I can count to 3 that have been about excellence. And thankful one is still with us today and also does a lot of our clients homes when needed. Great guy and very honest. I'll take some of that rain too!

Because we can't count on rain here, most people have sprinkler systems in place that can operate on an automated schedule.  And there are rain/freeze sensors so they're not going to run if they're not needed. Fortunately, my HOA is responsible for cutting the grass.

Hi Sheila- it has been brutally hot here and even though we heard thunder in the distance, we didn't get any rain. Glad that you did find someone who is at least responsible.

Morning Sheila.

Us old guys may be slow and not do as much as they younger guys, but for the most part we do keep our word.
