It is amazing how things change and yet they stay the same.  The faces change, the methods may have a new twist but the plot is the same.  So is the end result.I used to watch twilight zoneand think that Rod Sterling had to be a twisted individual, then came Stephen King...now he is a sick puppy!...

Being a Gen Y'er myself there are a few things that stand out to me when I work with a Gen Y versus a non Gen Y.  First technology is important.  The biggest yet very simple step everybody can take is upload multiple photos of your listing.  With the level of inventory we have, I have worked with...

It saddens me to say that summer is almost done.  It seems like summer just started.  Summer is my absolute favorite time in Michigan.  With over 11,000 lakes and the hot weather, there are tons of activities to partake in. As a mom, I'm always on the lookout for fun events.  Some of my favorites...

What is going to change the level of foreclosures in Michigan? I have a strong opinion.  The State of Michigan should declare a moratorium on all foreclosures for 60 days and review each foreclosure on a case by case  basis.  Does the bank really want the home?  What good does it do to displace p...
