This has by far been the most stressful couple of months that I have had in a long time!  Stressful but exciting.  In July my broker/owner came and asked if my husband and I would be interested in buying our branch office.  After very little thought we jumped in with both feet.  After signing the...

Breast Cancer has touched my life in many ways even though I have never had it.  When I was a girl, my grandmother had breast cancer.  At that time the treatment was very radical.  She had both breasts removed and the doctors even removed the underlying muscle.  I can remember the horrible scars ...
Here we sit...between a rock and a hard place.  Congress arguing over the best solution for the financial crisis.  As usual they look to the people to foot the bill and scare us with dire consequences if it is not passed.  After just passing the largest budget in history...we are being asked to d...

How many ethics classes have we all had to take as Real Estate Agents?  We laugh and roll our eyes when we think about how often we are required to attend an ethics class.  Many of those who have been in the business a long time can even quote portions of the code of ethics. The code of ethics wa...
People always say that things happen for a reason...and usually at the right time.  I have to say that I whole heartedly agree!

OK, this one touches a nerve with me.  I am a Realtor and have wonderful listing in Collinsville that had someone interested in it.  I called the buyer today to ask if she and her husband wanted to go back through the home.  She said "No, we've decided we don't want to be in Collinsville School D...

Less than 22 days until one of my favorite Madison County Traditions - The Italian Fest in the heart of downtown Collinsville. Every year, folks from all over Madison County (and some from St. Louis, too) pack the streets of downtown Collinsville for a taste of Italy.  From traditional favorites...

It's Friday and that can only mean one thing in Madison County:  Fish Fry Night. If you're new to the St. Louis metropolitan area -- or new to the Midwest -- this might be an unfamiliar ritual. It involves calling a bunch of people you know and arranging to meet them at the Fish Fry of your choic...

Outside, the huge yard is complemented by an amazing deck. Now the 2-year newlyweds are in the pr...
