OK. This is getting ridiculous. Another 8-10 inches of snow in Iowa City. Obviously Old Man Winter is mad. I don't know what we did to provoke such action here in the Midwest. Maybe the old guy is getting tired of all the 'global warming' banter. Maybe the old guy decided to make up for 5 years p...

So this client and I were looking at older homes in the Goosetown area of Iowa City and the listing agency didn't let me know about a certain cat in the house. We opened up the door and this black cat scurried right out the front door across minor traffic to the other side of the street. Now, I'm...

Buyers Beware: Not all agents are created equal. Although the previous statement should not be held in the same esteem as the discovery of electricity, it certainly needs to be said. Just like every profession, real estate has it's share of bad apples. I'm fortunate to work in a community that pr...

As all REALTORS are aware, April is Fair Housing month. That's not to say that we shouldn't follow the fair housing guidelines all year long! It's just that April is the anniversary month of the Federal Fair Housing act. It's a good time to remind everyone of the guidelines and how they apply to ...

We still seem to have a problem with consumers trusting Realtors. Have they had a bad experience? Did they just think it was bad and really it was a misunderstanding that the "bad" Realtor didn't even know about? Did they have parents who pounded it into their heads to not trust strangers?

Is winter ever going to be over???  Growing up on an Iowa farm, you'd think I'd be used to the snow and cold. Maybe it's because I'm getting older. My body can't stand the cold and I have a real fear of falling! My husband, Tom, holds on to me and says "be careful, gramma".  He's experienced the ...
