The RealMan blog is about Minot ND. The RealMan blog is North Dakota's longest running and most read blog about Minot ND.



This is some what of a re-post as what I put up yesterday ended up on localism only and I wanted to share it with my Active Rain friends. I have made the decision to leave RE/MAX Signature Properties in Minot North Dakota for a small independent Brokerage called Oak Park Realty. My broker operate...
I have applied to move my license from my current broker to another broker here in town. Many factors worked into this decision and I'm sure I am making the correct choice. Also I am working on my brokers license and this change will eventually lead to me owning the agency, I hope. If you have qu...
I have a buyer who has been getting discouraged due to the run/demand for houses up here in oil boom country. He has made offers on two houses (one a full price offer) and has not won either offer. For those of you who are new to my blog the area I work in, Western North Dakota, is growing in lea...
I've noticed from many of the Active Rain communities "About Me" biographies I've read that a lot of us are photography hobbyists or professionals. I really enjoyed seeing the photography submitted to The North Dakota State Fair when I was there on Wednesday. I am a member of the local camera cl...
Tomorrow is the last day of The North Dakota State Fair. Come up and have some fun (if you are in Canada come down and have some fun)! Our family had a GREAT time last Wednesday and I know you will too. I'm not sure but I think it closes at midnight on Saturday (7/26/2008). As always they will c...

I just came from a clients home as I was there to get his acceptance of an offer. We were causually visiting and he was telling me about all the time he spends blogging and helping a friend out with a novel. Much to my surprise he told me that his political blog has had a lot of national attentio...
Yesterday Minot North Dakota had it's annual Fair Parade. Not quite the Massey Parade but tons of fun and candy for the kids. This year I think we had a smaller the usual parade with approximately 200 entries. Three full hours were more then enough for my kids (and me). As the name of the parade ...
Like all kids, my 6 year old and my 8 year old (especially my always inventive 8 year old daughter) come up with some unique ways to entertain themselves. I'm going to explain this one first because it makes the picture even sillyier. This was a game of: I will swing on my belly from the tree swi...
The following is an email I received from a friend. It speculates as to what will happen with Real Estate related taxes depending upon who is elected. Again I will stress that it is shear speculation.    Proposed changes in taxes after 2008 General election: CAPITAL GAINS TAX  MCCAIN 0% on home s...
