University of Kentucky Wildcats are awesome.  Who would have thought we would be in the final four NCAA Basketball Tournament, Coach Cal has pulled off a miracle or two with these kids and now we are going to the big dance. Saturday will be a big challenge as U-Conn beat us big time early in the season. I think we'll be up to the challenge come Saturday night.  GO CATS!!!

Brandon Knight the Kentucky freshman guard added to Ohio State's March misery by knocking down his second game-winner of the postseason, a 15 footer with 5 seconds left to lift the Wildcats to a 62-60 victory over Ohio State. Harrellson had a major influence in the first half, hitting 6 0f 8 shots and making some moves that Ohio State likely didn't believe was in his arsenal. Tomorrow's game against North Carolina will be another barn burner.  GO CATS!!

(The following verse is to the tune of "What a Wonderful World") I see walls of green ... Red dining rooms ... I see them all... And my buyer does too ... And I say to myself . . . What a colorful house . . .  (that won't sell) After showing about 40 homes to some out of town buyers this week, it once again became apparent to me HOW IMPORTANT IT IS TO LISTEN TO YOUR HOME STAGER/REALTOR!  (Yes, I AM yelling!) Time and again, my buyers would walk into a house and their feedback would be, "it's just not us", or "it just doesn't feel like home".  I would probe further and ask specific questions to better understand, really to no avail. They just couldn't articulate what "it" was.  On the last day, after looking at another house that "just didn't feel right", I asked, "what did you think of...

  We finally pulled off a big win today with Brandon Knight scoring 30 points to beat West Virginia 71 - 63.  Now on to the big game with Ohio State.  I don't know if our freshman can handle this big task but they will be in there scratching & clawing for the win.  If we come ready to play it should be a good game.  GO CATS!!

We had to paw and scratch our way through yesterday's NCAA game but we finally came out the winner.  Our freshman were off, but Coach Cal will have them ready (we hope) for West Virginia on Saturday.  We lost all 5 starters last season and had to rebuild our team but one thing is for sure.....we'll be cheering them on come Saturday morning @ 11:00 AM.   GO CATS!!

That's my dog Cocoa.  She has three favorite things to do: •1. Roll in dead things! •2. Roll in poop! •3. Stick her head out the car window at 50 mph! ( she even knows how to roll the window down!) You might ask, "How do you know these are her favorite things?"  How?  I can tell by her actions! When she finds something to roll in - she rolls in it with enthusiasm!  She gives it everything she's got and she is enjoying it - I can tell by the smile on her face!  And after she has all that stink on her, she is so happy to run up to me and share!  There is no question she is excited!  And there are no inhibitions there.  She does not care who sees her rolling in the poop, and she gives no thought to what anyone else might think about her rolling in the poop.  Thoughts like, "Am I rolling in...

   It's almost here.  Sunday Morning at 2 AM we will "Spring Foward" and move our clocks one hour ahead.  This gives us more time to do the things we love.  In my case, its selling Real Estate.  I guess we should all think Benjamin Franklin for his billiant idea of Daylight Savings Time.  Thank You Ben.

One of my fellow agents came in my office to brainstorm how he might help a client.  The conversation went like this: Agent:  "My poor buyer - she got a divorce and her husband was supposed to be making the house payments but quit and now the bank is foreclosing.  Is that going to hurt my buyer's credit?" Me:  "Yes, if she is on the note.  Why don't they just do a short sale?" Agent:  "She is on the note.  We did try to sell it last year, but since she was living there free, she was not motivated to move, which meant she never cleaned up - so it showed terrible - most of the time, I couldn't even get in to show it.  As a result, we never got an offer.   I went to the bank to discuss a short sale, but because the house payments were not late at that time, they would not consider it."  Tr...

Military Personnel Can Still Claim The $8,000 Homebuyer Tax Credit Less than two months remain. Eligible persons include members of the uniformed services, members of the Foreign Service, and intelligence community employees who served at least 90 days of qualified, extended duty service outside of the United States between January 1, 2009 and April 30, 2010 (and spouses). The federal home buyer tax credit ranges up to $8,000 for first-time home buyers, and up to $6,500 for existing homeowners. Existing homeowners must have lived in their "main home" through 5 of the last 8 years to be eligible. Claiming the federal tax credit is a two-step process. First, eligible persons must be under contract for a new home on or before April 30, 2011.  The home's closing must then occur on or before...
