I just received an email from a friend of mine in Florida by the name of Reidi Lott.  She lives in Longwood and is originally from Ocala.  She's what you would call a fine and upstanding Christian Woman.  She has prayer lists that include half the world. I remember a young person she knew once ha...
What is it that you want to improve? The amount of money you make? Your Quality of Life? Your Energy Level? Whatever it is you want to improve, the #1 thing you can do to get there is to be VERY PICKY about who you choose to spend your time with. Instead of "making the best" of each moment and de...
I just received one of those flyers about a property so far away I learned something new.  I'll bet, just like me, that maybe you haven't heard of the Skookumchuck River.  Well the agent who just sent me this flyer has a property with 200' frontage on the Skookumchuck River. While I don't think I...

English Hill in Redmond Washington is really several different neighborhoods.  Here is a li...

It's Opening Day of the 2008 real estate season.  More daylight hours.  More time to see property in the evening "after work" and still be able to view  the outside of the home before it gets dark.  Lockboxes here in our area automatically switch to extended hours of from 8 a.m. to 10 p.m.  And a...
