Closed my last two properties for the month today.  The Pinetree Lane deal closed first and then the Tholozan property closed at 11:30 am.  The earlier closing went very smoothly; the Tholozan closing had last minute glitches.  It was an FHA deal, and this one just required so much more documenta...

Closed on the McDonald house today.  It was a smooth closing.  Had the walk-through at 9:00 am and the closing at 10:00.  I was happy for the buyer and the seller on this one.  I had this home listed last year for 6 months.  I really loved the seller, an elderly lady in her 80's.  She was such a ...

Busy day today.  Office meeting this morning.  Errands after that.  This afternoon, I applied the second coat of varnish on four doors of the Miami properties.  Two coats will have to be enough.  They will be protected by storm doors, so the finish should last longer.  Dennis has been painting do...

Closed on both the Chippewa property and Bancroft properties today.  Everything went very smooth, as I had hoped.  I do try very hard to stay on top of things during the deals, so the closings usually are very smooth.  There sometimes are some last minute glitches, but they're minor, and can be w...
