Addison Pacesetters Learn About Building & Home Inspections. Addison Pacesetters (Addison, Texas residents 50+ years of age) meet the first Wednesday of each month at Dunn Bros. on Belt Line Road and learn about the Town of Addison. This month, Bruce Hopewell, a former Addison building inspector, spoke to us. Since he retired from the Town, he's doing home inspections (McCool's Property Inspections, 972-880-1414). Here are some suggestions from his presentation and the Q & A session that followed: Clean or replace AC filters at least once a month.

Extreme Home Page Makeover After 7 years of the same, boring website, I decided it was time to shake things up a bit. In addition to changing the look, I also changed the URL. Here's the before (www.LorrieSemler.com): In Keller Williams vernacular, the home page above was my eAgentC site. And now the new, refreshed look and URL (www.AddisonUpdate.com), thanks to BrandCo:   While the stock photos for the For Buyers and For Sellers links came from BrandCo, the others are from photos I took. The front door on the Property Search link is the door of one of the Addison listings I sold earlier this year; the white gazebo on the blog link is the gazebo on Belt Line Road in Addison, location of many a bridal party photo shoot; the fireworks on the Powerpage link is from Addison's Kaboom Town; a...
