As a result of yesterday's cliff hanging victory against the Texas Longhorns, the Kansas Jayhawks secured a #1 seed in the upcoming 2008 NCAA Tournament. The brackets for this year's 'Dance' were released yesterday afternoon. The first round opponent the Crimson & Blue will face are the Vikings of Portland State, a 16 seed out of Oregon. The game will take place this Thursday March 20th at the Qwest Center in Omaha, Nebraska. Tip-off time is 12:25pm EDT.I have KU going all the way to the Final Four and winning this year's NCAA Tournament. Rounding out my Final Four predictions are North Carolina, Memphis, and UCLA.Rock Chalk, Jayhawk. GO KU!

Many people have unsucccessfully tried to sell their homes on their own.Let me help.  Because I work with buyers, I can help sell your home.  If your home is priced right and you are willing to pay the buyer's side commission, call me and let me know about your home!  I work hard to find my buyers the right home and I would hate to exclude showing your home simply because I didn't know about it.Most buyers use the internet to find homes they want to see.  Realtors use the internet to e-mail their buyers market updates and new listings... because you have chosen to sell your home on your own, your home will never show up on the buyers radar.Don't miss out on a great opportunity to connect with buyers in the Lawrence area.  Call me and let me know about your For Sale By Owner property tod...

You've heard the joke, "Quick, what's the number for 911?"While even children know 911, many other numbers may not be as easy to find in an emergency.  People used to use phone books but now most people use the internet.  However, may I suggest that you print out this page of numbers and keep it on the refrigerator or someplace handy where it can be accessed in an emergency.Remember these are emergency numbers and not every day use numbers.  Please keep 911 and these other phone lines open for true emergencies.Police - Sheriff - Fire - Ambulance - 911Poison Control 800-332-6633Lawrence Memorial Hospital 7785-49-6162Westar Energy (Electric) 800-794-4780Aquila (Gas) 800-303-0357Atmos (Gas) 866-322-8667City of Lawrence (Water) 785-832-7878Southwestern Bell Emergency Repair Service (Phone) ...

I look around on the ground and find money all the time.  I remember one day when I was growing up and my dad had found a $100 bill folded up quite small inside a plastic baggie.  While that was probably a horrible loss for the person who dropped it, it was a real find to our family back in the 60's!Many people will still stop to pick up a penny on the ground.  Some people say it is to honor God because the coins all bear the "In God We Trust" motto.  The related idea is that God sees you are having a bad time and drops a message in front of you telling you to trust Him, quite a compelling message for those who believe in Him.Some people say it brings good luck and recite an old, old jingle "See a penny, pick it up and all day long you'll have good luck".  In real estate, I am in and ou...

There is no such thing as renters!  Renters are really buyers who are buying the property for their landlord.  Let me help you get a loan to buy a place for yourself instead of buying your landlord.Been told you can't get a loan?  I work with lenders you will never find on your own who know how to get you a loan.  I work with lenders who teach you how to improve your credit score by up to 100 points.  Working on improving your credit score will save you thousands of dollars with 1) Lower interest rates on mortgage and other loans; 2) Lower insurance premiums on home and car and other insurance premiums since they are based on credit scores, and 3) Greater appreciation possibilities by being able to purchase a better home that will appreciate better.Visit http://www.renters2buyers.com/ t...

By posting this information, I am not encouraging anyone to speed anywhere in Lawrence.  Please obey the speed limits wherever you drive.However, locals know where most of the speeding tickets get written in Lawrence and people who are new to Lawrence should not be at a disadvantage and should be made aware of speed traps in the Lawrence Kansas Real Estate Area.  Again, please drive responsibly as we have many KU students in town and our children to be careful of.  Recently a USPS mail carrier was struck by a truck while crossing the street on his mail route.1) Along 6th St just eastbound from Iowa St.2) Along the one ways Kentucky St northbound and Tennessee St southbound usually between 19th St and 11th St.3) Along Naismith Dr. usually between 19th St and 23rd St.4) Along Massachusett...

While Lawrence Kansas is not the Big Apple nor do we have traffic problems such as non-stop bumper to bumper or stop and go traffic, if you are new to the area, you might want to learn some of these shortcuts to avoid lots of traffic lights and excess traffic.  One should know that 23rd St. west of Iowa is called Clinton Parkway and 15th St. west of Iowa is called Bob Billings Parkway.1) Unless attending the games, on KU game days one should avoid the campus area for one hour prior to the game through one hour after the game is over.  Also avoid 23rd St from Iowa St eastbound to K-10 after the game.  http://kuathletics.cstv.com/ will provide a countdown to game day to the second.2) Iowa St., 23rd St. (K-10 to Iowa St.), and 6th St. (downtown to Iowa St.) should be avoided 8-9am and 4-6p...
