This holiday season I was blessed with a ringing cell phone. Not just one client or contact but several. New prospects. Current buyers and sellers. Past clients and friends. And of course other agents.Each situation and reason for calling was unique. As I consider each of these contacts I realize...
On my seventh birthday, I received one of my favorite presents; The Chipmunk's Christmas album. I couldn't wait to share it with my friends at school. I told all my school friends about it for nearly two months. My wonderful second grade teacher said I could bring in the record the day before the...
Here it is a week prior to the Christmas Holidays and I am frantically getting ready as I always do this time of year. But in the midst of shopping for presents, sending packages, wrapping gifts and baking cookies, I have to set up and show homes to clients. A normal year would see a slow down ar...
Ever hear the saying: You can't win if you don't enter?Well, maybe you can. Before you enter that next drawing at your local department store, sporting event, or county fair, think twice.

Residents and visitors alike do a double take as they pass through Forest Lake, Minnesota this December as construction continues on the new water tower. Though the photo is not strikingly different from the original I posted last week, if you look closely there are some marked differences. Note ...
A fresh blanket of snow covers the landscape across the Twin Cities from North St. Paul to East Bethel and Ham Lake to Scandia. Winter is not a time to hide from the elements and wait until spring to make a home buying decision! Although making a move in a Minnesota winter's snow and ice is not i...
Buying a car in the north and east Twin Cities metro usually means a trip down Highway 61. It is the mecca of new and used cars! Ever since I can remember one a huge Uniquely Minnesota Artful Distraction, the big polar bear at Polar Chevrolet, has been greeting auto buyers from the shore of Goose...
