Got back into town yesterday, and will probably leave town again on Thursday for the Memorial Day weekend.  I am finding it very difficult to get motivated to do anything real estate related this week.  Not much is going on, and I just can't seem to get focused for a couple of days to just leave ...
I just wanted to take a moment to wish Mom Horman a Happy 80th Birthday.  I also wanted to pay tribute to this amazing woman.  We are celebrating her birthday this Sunday, but her actual birthday is Tuesday, May 22.  Her children and grandchildren have been planning the event for months.  It's su...
It's the season for graduations.  We have five of them in the family - four from high school and one from nursing school.  We are attending only one of the ceremonies, but everyone will get cards and cash.  I need to get them in the mail....I loved the saying in one of the cards.  It applies to a...

I have a clipping on the board above my desk.  I believe it's from an old Ann Landers column.  I try to read it regularly, as it reminds me to be thankful for the many blessings I have received:"If you woke up this morning with more health than illness... you are more blessed than the million who...
Last week I posted that I was checking out different virtual tour sites.  I have tried out http://www.realestateshows/ and love it.  Normally, the price to join was $125, but Jeff Turner, president of the company, responded and let me know that for members of Activerain the cost was only $99.95. ...
We have a clear occupancy inspection on the Wyoming listing!  I met the inspector there this morning.  After a ten minute walk-thu, he said everything looks fine and said the certificate would be in the mail.  I knew this would be an easy one.  I installed three smoke detectors and three GFCI out...
