Last night about 11:00 I finished uploading this listing into the MLS:  By 11:00 this morning I had seven showings scheduled for the property.  I think it's safe to assume that we will be under contract soon. As always,  a home in a desireable location that is priced fairly won't be on the market...

I felt like I learned a lot.Until the title company treated us to appetizers and drinks afterwards, and that's where I really learned the lesson of the day.You see, the conversation turned to t...
We spent a beautiful afternoon this week at Beaver Marsh, an area within the Cuyahoga Valley National Park.  It is a wide vista of cattails and marsh grass with a wooden boardwalk that runs through.  It is a lovely, serene place to watch herons fishing, ducks dabbling, and lily pads spreading out...

Oh how I love to list a home in June! Looking through the lens of my camera, I get the front of the house in focus.  It all lines up beautfully; clouds framing a blue sky, forming the backdrop for a sun-dappled home that's rising from beds of blooming flowers and grasses. That's a money shot.Here...
If you've never had a dry spell in sales, this post is not for you.  You're all still reading, right?  There's no shame in admitting that real estate sales is a career with ups and downs built right into it.  I happen to be on week six of no homes sold (not that I'm counting, mind you), and I tho...
When a Realtor drives through a neighborhood, chances are he or she is looking out the window at yard signs.  We love to see what's newly listed, what's pending, what's sitting and waiting for a buyer still.  At this time of year, front yard signs multiply exponentially.  It's election season, so...
