It's Valentine's Day and many are asking what I'm doing to celebrate.  The real answer is going on a listing appointment.  Yup!  I can't fabricate some romantic vision for you all.  That's it... while my husband and youngest head to their first love (softball practice), I'll be spreading the love...

As I scrolled through my blog page this morning, I had a big "aha moment"...  I'm really good at telling you about my new listings but pretty inconsistent about keeping you posted about what happens to them.  What do I mean?  Well in Real Estate, there are a LOT of options which include:  connect...

I can't believe that June is nearly over! Our students are still getting into 'summer mode' since the last day of classes were last week  (I'm convinced we're the last ones in the nation to start summer break!) which also means that it's really & truly summer now.  With the Independence Day holid...

Today’s the day! Yes – it’s my father’s birthday and that alone makes it an extra-special day.
