Trash? Well, not exactly garbage but old ink cartridges for your printer(s) can earn your son or daughter's school a little bit of extra money.  What an easy fund-raiser?!?!  You can call 1-888-99 REFILL to find a participating store nearest you.  Or you can go to Cartridge World for more ideas on how this program works.  Did you know...*  It takes an entire gallon of oil to create a brand new laser cartridge*  In North America, there are over 350 million cartridges thrown in the trash yearly*  It can take up to 50 years for a single cartridge to decompose in a landfill...YES 50 YEARS!Using Cartridge World can save the planet as well as make a few extra dollars for your local school.  That's a great incentive all the way around!   Other local rainmakers have been focusing on recycling a...

I'm a DONOR!  I've been donating blood since I was "old enough" and decided to try!  I was a senior at Armwood High School in Seffner, FL when I first donated blood.  What a feeling to know I was helping someone out.  How exciting to know I could be the very person who could help out a friend, family member or stranger who needed my blood in an emergency!  Wow!  That was all it took.  Well, that and the opportunity to "get out of class" for an hour at the time!  This was the beginning of my dedication to donate.Florida Blood Services gives you many options to donate blood and save a life.  This service benefits the young, old, healthy and sick.  You can start a new habit today that could save a life.  Do you have ONE HOUR to spare once every 2 months? Florida Blood Services is located i...

I guess this is a perspective that seems to go unnoticed. If I am a selling my home with the intentions of buying, should I feel like I lost since I didn't capitlize at the peak of the boom? Should I kick myself because I have to accept less for my home than I could have received two years ago? This all maybe be true but aren't I also going to be able to buy a home considerable lower than I could have two years ago? I guess if you looked at from this perspective then life really does seem to bad. Also isn't it a great time for a first time home buyer who is back in the game and can perhaps live the dream of homeowner.I believe we are in a great market and a great time to buy especially in the Brandon Florida real estate market.

OK here it goes my first active rain blog. I am like every one else on the blog train. I must admit I never was a big writer but just like anything the more you do something the better you become. Believe me I am far from being a pulitzer prize winner. I do however enjoy reading experiences and the expertise of my fellow Realtors. I have not been active here as I spend a lot of time working on my website and other real estate forums and blogs. I  have years of experiences  in seo and web marketing. Blogs are so important nowadays in working to achieve results in ranking but they also provide a valuable tool to the consumer who now has more information than ever. I could sit here and read real estate blogs for years and still not come close to reading every blog about real estate. This i...

 Today is a special day - my friend, Susie Roscoe, joined Active Rain with me 4 months ago today. It has been a fun, education, rewarding journey that has only just begun and sharing it with a friend like Susie makes it so much better!!!If you haven't met Susie Roscoe - you need to. What I love about Susie is that she knows who she is 100% - few of us are that clear. She is a MOM first of 2 amazing boys and she is an awesome Mom - I've seen her in action and she's a great Realtor because she brings that same authenticity to her work and her clients.Susie has the best laugh and contagious energy and has become one of my closest friends. Some might think since we could be competitors that it's weird but we are so comfortable with each other - but we are and ironically quite often actually...

Congratulations Bonnie Guagliardo for receiving the Frist Humanitarian Award, named for physician Thomas Frist Sr., a founder of Hospital Corporation of America.  Bonnie has been employed by Brandon Regional Hospital since she graduated nursing school 27 years ago.  Bonnie heads up the Women's Services at the hospital and has been helping women deliver babies for years. She's been there so long she's seen "those babies" return to start their own families in the same hospital.  "Bonnie G." as referred to by her fellow staff, is a teacher as well as a nurse.  She's taught prenatal exercise classes and educated women on how to care for themselves and their newborns.  The Women's Unit delivers almost 4,000 babies a year!  Bonnie never asks one of her nurses to do something she wouldn't do w...
