So living in Green Bay Wisconsin for the whole majority of my life i'm born with the Green Bay Packers in my blood.  No matter where I live there will only be one true team that I will cheer for and thats the Green Bay Packers.  Aaron Rodger's is the new Quarterback and he's starting to show why the team made what seemed to be a crazy and ludicrious decision.  My take on Brett Favre is pretty emotional but i've decided to move on and support our new Quarterback who deserves all of our respect. Aaron Rodgers of the Green Bay Packers has the biggest weight anyone has ever had put on their shoulders.  Sure Quarterbacks like Steve Young have had great career's following the legend Joe Montana but Steve Young didn't have to deal with Joe going back and forth on his decision to play.  At firs...

I remember the first Green Bay duplex that I purchased back four years ago like it was yesterday.  You may be sitting at home thinking about how you can possibly come up with a down payment, to purchase your first home.  Don't be discouraged I had the same feelings and thoughts.  Thankfully I was able to work with Green Bay Neighborworks and a Green Bay Real Estate Agent  in purchasing a property in the original neighborhoods of Green Bay.   They have down payment programs that you may qualify to utilize.   They are also hosting classes on home ownership and also buying Green Bay Foreclosures. You can benefit from my personal and professional experience in helping buyers in the Green Bay Real Estate Market.  Buying your first home can be an intimidating process.  You will find that my ...

The Green Bay community is blessed to have such a wonderful organization Green Bay NeighborWorks that is focused on improving the original neighborhoods of the wonderful place we call home Green Bay Wisconsin. Green Bay Neighborworks is parterning with Money Smart Wisconsin, in an effort to increase awareness about home ownership. Four years ago Green Bay Neighborworks made a huge impact in my life. They assisted me with Down Payment Assistance for buying in the original area of Green Bay. I'm a big believer in the great things Neighbor works does for our community.   You can visit The Affordable Home Tour October 18, 2008 from 11:30AM-5:00PM.

It's time for another adventure of The Little Man! We decided that it was time to get a haircut and boy was he pumped up for it. Let me state that this was the first time that Dad got the opportunity to take him for a hair cut. So I decided to take him to my favorite place, which happens to be a kid friendly place! Sport Clips in Green Bay Wisconsin is the only hair cutting place that i've been continually coming back to. The people at Sport Clips are extremely friendly and always have time for a walk-in which is by far the most important thing for me. If you are interested in some great children's activities in Northeastern Wisconsin you can read my post's about: Monkey Joes Appleton Wisconsin- Video Review, Neville Public Museum - Art and Animal Review.

  Since entering the real esate business one month ago, I certainly wish I had a listing for every person who looked at me crooked and said "Real Estate?  Now?".  I must admit, jumping into the middle of this market is a bit of a risk, but the way I see it, if I can survive now, my future has unlimited possibility.  The question is, what must a new agent do in order to survive? I would like to use this blog to encourage new agents, and seasoned agents alike, to share ideas about: prospecting advertising networking finding buyers etc. Share ideas, suggestions, successful strategies, questions and encouraging remarks.  Contribute your best to help make this a truly ACTIVE bRAINstorm!

As a full time Green Bay Real Estate agent, part of my job is to work with clients that have a strong desire to buy or sell homes.  Sometimes I run across situations where someone's credit may be holding them back from getting approval on a mortgage.  Some people need guidance and professional help. That's when I advise them to look into a Green Bay Credit Counseling company called Credit Coach.   The Green Bay Credit Counseling company Credit Coach is a licensed Credit Service Organization.  They have a huge emphasis on Coaching, they are not a debt consilidation company  This is one of the reasons I'm such a huge advocate of their organization.  They coach you and help you understand the process and explain in full detail the ramifications of doing something or not doing something.  ...

If you've been watching the national media you will hear the terms buyers' market and sellers' market over and over again. One way to establish...

Whenever I'm showing properties to buyers that are new to me, I make a point of rushing them down to the basement of the home first thing so we can look at the "bones".   I don't want them getting hung up on what i call the pretty pretty aspects of the home. I make the analogy that a house is like a living thing.  The furnace is the heart, the insulation the skin and the foundation is the bones.  I point out any issues with the bones that I see.  I teach them to look for water stains on the floor, dark spots on the insulation as well as to examine the flooring system, i.e. I joist, trusses, dimensional etc., age of the furnace and the water heater. It funny because by our second or third trip out, they themselves even refer to "checking out the bones".  While room sizes, layout  and sq....

Green Bay Packer Training Camp On the Field The Green Bay Packers are a way of life in our wonderful Titletown USA.  When you're born and raised here there is no doubt that you will be a die hard Packer Fan.  It has to be something in the water here.  My great friend Adam Paal works for Verizon Wireless (the Blackberry King) and gave me the invitation of a life time.  He got some On the Field Traning camp passes. I was extremely excited when he called me to ask if I wanted to go. We got an unbelievable tour of inside Lambeau Field.   I saw more than I've ever been able to before.  We were going down the tunnel where the boys come out of and all of a sudden  music just came on.  It was a pretty special momentfor me, tears might have even came down my eyes- LOL.  They showed us where they...

Neville Public Museum: Art and the Animal Exhibit ReviewIt turned out to be the perfect day to take the family to the museum.  It was dark and overcast and sprinkled throughout the day  It also ended up being a great day to see the exhibit at the museum. There was a live animal exhibit where children could interact with a wide variety of animals.  My little man had the opportunity to play with a snake while Mom and Dad watched.   Neither of us are  fans of snakes, but we don't want to prevent Matthew from them just because we are scaredy cats!  My little man was filled with excitement especially when he saw the tarantula spider and the huge toad.  He said, "Daddy, what's this?" and I almost jumped out of my shoes.  Oh yeah, Daddy's afraid of spiders too.  I was really excited to see the...

Green Bay Wisconsin Real Estate: Another Happy Seller!When I think about what matters to my clients, the first thing that comes to mind is results.  When you take selling real estate as seriously as I do, you can become very emotionally attached to the outcome of every property you list.  You have to believe in your ability to sell a property when you list it, or you are setting yourself up to fail.  When you decide to hire a realtor for your Green Bay Wisconsin Real Estate needs, you need to focus on one that sets realistic expecatations, has proven success, and is committed to communicating to you throughout the whole process.  One of my clients, Shannon Kane, had a property listed For Sale By Owner for 3 weeks.  He wasn't receiving the traffic that it takes in this market to get enou...
