One of the fun things about working at Evers & Company is that our broker, Donna Evers, places a great value on having fun.  And, while there are celebrations throughout the year, each December, Donna throws an amazing party to celebrate Christmas, Hannukah, or the Winter Solstice - whatever reas...
This is a terrific post.And I do a whole lot of work for friends and family members.  They are my sphere of influence - mmy base!But when you are looking for an agent, your criteria should be experience and competence, not only that the agent is a friend of your second cousin who just got a licne...

Bill and Liz, A.K.A. B'Liz, write many terrific posts, and just in case you missed this one, I decided that a reblog was in order!  And B'Liz is totally on point about this one. ASK AN AMBASSADOR: Blog And They WILL Find You! There's a reason we show up every day here in the Rain.  We KNOW it wor...
I took this earlier this week, and after today's big chill, it's probably a total goner!  This rose bush is down the street, and each year it blooms late into the season.  When I walk Willie, I like to look for some sort of plant life for a great photo, and they're getting really hard to find!  I...
