Welcome Back UWSP Students - Enjoy the CNR Mural     Just before I started attending UWSP in 1981 I had the pleasure of watching a group of art students assembling and installing the big Natural Resource Mural on the south side of the College of Natural Resources.     It is a fascinating computer generated mural of several natural history type scenes all made up of little ceramic tiles with various natural resource related images including wildlife, trees, water molecules, paper machines, surveying equip and many other natural resource images.     Stop by spend some time enjoying the simplicity and complexity of this impressive work of art and engineering.       Far away view from across the sundial.             Up close and personal images of tiles within the mural.

Welcome Back UWSP Students - Enrich your Spiritual life   There are several opportunities on and around campus for a little prayer, besides the obvious classrooms just before a test.   Stevens Point is a town full of churches with a great opportunity for students of most faiths to spend some time with God.   A few notable places to check out include The Newman Center, St Stan’s, and the Peace Lutheran Campus Center.               When looking for a great Home while attending UWSP, give us a call, we can help.

Welcome Back UWSP Students - the DUC   When I was at UWSP this was known as the UC or University center, but more recently somebody thought it would be a good idea to put a very attractive addition on the front with several stores and of course let the current students pay a pile of extra cash.   Along with this new addition, came a new name, it is now known as the Lee Sherman Dreyfuss University Center, at first this was shortened to the LSDUC, but someone thought that it might look a little strange to have LSD in the name of the new addition so it was shortened a little more to the DUC or "duck", which is an ok name for a university center with so many wildlife majors around.   This is a great place to spend some time, great for meetings, relaxing, eating lunch, having coffee and so m...

The Square in Stevens Point Wisconsin               When I first moved to Stevens Point to attend college, the square was more known to us kids as a place with dozens of bars and a farmers market that we seldom attended.           These days with a higher drinking age, less college public drinking and thus less bars, it is a place with shops, offices and a renewed farmers market with a large beautiful fountain.                   The historic Mathias Mitchell Public Square in downtown Stevens Point is home to the longest running farmers market in the State of Wisconsin. The two square-block marketplace at the end of Main St. has been the focal point for farmers selling their wares since Mitchell donated it to the town in 1847.                    The market is open from May through Octobe...

Hiking & Biking on the Green Circle Trail in Stevens Point, Wisconsin   Yesterday we were working on a house of ours near the Green Circle Trail and while the crew was busy working Jack and I decided to take a break for a bike ride along the Wisconsin River on the The Green Circle Trail.   My trusty sled dog Jack generally enjoys pulling me all over town and today is no exception however he is very distracted by all of the squirrels today that are busy gathering acorns around all of the big Red Oaks along the trail.     Enjoy this and let me know if there are any questions that I can answer about the lovely city of Stevens Point.

Belts opens Today   Belts Ice Cream is one of our favorite attractions drawing visitors from around the state with their huge cones and other delicious treats.   I was pleased to see long lines of hardy folks climbing over snowbanks to get to the first of this icy treat while I was speeding through town between rental showings today.   I enjoy Belts as much as anyone and am pleased to be living only a few blocks from it, and always use in the description line when advertising the many homes that I rent in this part of town, yet I will wait a little while before I make my first trip, I will at least wait until the snowbanks melt down to only a few feet tall.

Great News for home owners in Wisconsin!  Wisconsin is one of the top states in the mid-west when it comes to home prices.  Although, home sales declined by 10.8% on 2007, prices increased .2% We cannot compare the Wisconsin housing market to the national indicators. It is true that 2007 was a rough year for Real Estate, but we don't have a huge fall to recouperate from.  Don't lose hope if your house hasn't sold yet!  Click on the link below, to view WRA housing statisticsPortage County Housing Statistics

 economy predictions, weather, media commentary are a just a few factorsWinter's crazy temperatures, caused home showings to slow down.  But honestly, who wants to leave their cozy and warm living room to get out there and go house hunting? Last week we were below 0 some Cities had windchill factors down to -45F. Right now is 36F the melting snow has ruined my shoes, but it has also caused my blackberry to ring non-stop! Good news sellers!!!! Buyers are out there, but weather is not the only factor, interest rates are so low that buyers are feeling pretty motivated. Stop feeling prisoner because your home hasn't sold.
