This subject has a special meaning to me right now.  I just watched the family of a friend/co-worker mourn the lost of their 24 year old son due to an accidental drowning on Memorial Day weekend.  I wonder if a little extra training could have saved his life?  Perhaps those of us surviving should take every precaution we are aware of to perserve life.  Please take boater safety seriously.  While the summer is just beginning, let's start off our leisure time being smart, safe, and prepared.   The U.S. Coast Guard is offering a boater safety class for ages 13 and older.  Come learn what to do in case of a boater emergency.  The class will be from 9 am tp 5 pm, July 24th at  Rockwall Parks and Recreation Center (972) 771-7740 108 E. Washington St, Rockwall, TX 75087.    www.TREShomes4U.com...

It's no wonder that NAR says that, "90% of all buyers used the internet to search." We have seen this first hand, and especially over the last few months. When people relocate to other states, it's a long distance move. These people usually start by researching the city on the Internet. More times than not, they find one of our 1,100+ relocation websites. If they're serious, they'll request help in a possible home purchase. Due to a very large demand, we need a Buyer's Agent in Rockwall that is able to assist these prospective home buyers. These families and individuals are wanting assistance from a Realtor, and if you would like to get in contact with them, we need to talk soon. Time is of the essence, and we only need 1 Realtor to be able to contact these people. We NEVER send people ...

Rockwall-based Shoe Bank provides help, hope for Haiti Rockwall Newspaper reports: By Dawn Redig. NeighborsGo.com.  When Rockwall resident Mike Barringer founded The Shoe Bank in 1989, his nonprofit's mission was a simple one - to provide shoes for a few hundred homeless men in downtown Dallas. Twenty years later, Barringer still works from his home office, single-handedly managing The Shoe Bank's daily operations. But his efforts provide relief for more than 20,000 needy people across the globe each year - most of them children. So my thoughts are if you have shoes that dont fit, are out of style, almost worn out, your kids have tons of shoes that are small or they dont work... TAKE THEM TO THE SHOE BANK! What a great way and inexspensive way to help others!!! Thanks Rockwall and surro...

List price vs. sold price - This statistic indicates what a person may feel that their house is worth, vs. what it actually sells for. The median price for homes for sale was $224,150.

There are so many blogs to read, so much great information to obtain. What blog to read or not to read. There are so many great bloggers on here and yet there is not enough time in the day to sit and read all the great, helpful information others make time to write for US! So if you have any blog that you think is wonderful, worth the time to read, that is very helpful or anything you may view as a must read..... please pass it along!!! I love to read blogs but not the ones that have no substance or information that I can use to help others or myself. Thanks all!!!Happy Blogging~ Ara Hunt

Those from up north may think that this is ‘much ado about nothing.’ In reality, the problem is that since we don’t get these cold spells in Texas often, an especially lengthy blast of cold – or repeated cold like we have had – can cause damage to your home. The pipes in your home are accustomed to above-freezing temperatures, with occasional dips below-freezing. This gives time for pipes to warm back up again. With this particularly series of Arctic winds, our homes are taking more of a beating than they are used to. A small pipe burst the size of a dime could cause thousands of dollars in damage. To learn more, check out the video below. http://weatherblog.dallasnews.com/archives/2010/01/heads-up-dallas-video-provides-tips-on-p.html Get ready for the cold and protect the pipes in you...
