About Cape Girardeau (Cape Girardeau, MO)
A river does run through it. In fact, THE river runs through Cape Girardeau, MO; but so do Interstate 55, US Highways 61, 34, and 72. Home of Southeast Missouri State University, West Park Mall, two hospitals, and Doctors' Park, the Mississsippi River town of Cape Girardeau is the region's medical, shopping, and education hub.

After she took my take-out order, Kiki brought me hot tea to drink while I waited. My family and I love Chan's, and it is our Saturday lunch destination every weekend, so Ki...

When a seller chooses to counter-offer rather than accept an offer, he/she kills the original offer. The offer is DEAD, and it was killed by the side who countered it rather than accepting it. That's a powerful message, because sellers and buyers often assume that they are "keeping the deal alive...

The BPO has a distinct place in the valuation process. The perspective of a real estate agent is different than that of an appraiser.
