I saw a business card from ...

Turtles & ducks are fun to watch.  We visited some local parks over the weekend and watched the ducks follow us around the pond. I found it interesting that there wasn't a Ma & Pa around.  These little ones seemed to be thriving nevertheless, don't you think? Looking rather weightless and casual!...

"I'm so grateful I took your advice, I got a home inspection and I'm so glad I did!"  My buyer said to me today.  He knew it was a fixer-upper but he had no idea of the fixing it needed.   Being the passionate Realtor that I am I urge all my customers to get a home inspection done by a top quali...

Spanish moss hanging from the trees.   It looks great to some but not to others.  Often folks ...

The home had been listed for 3 months at higher than market value, we had few showings and no offers.  We lowered the price but not...
