In 1905, The Harris’ Company opened its first store in downtown San Bernardino, CA.  Surprisingly, during my research of this article, I found that the Harris Brothers opened their second store in 1908 on State Street in Redlands which later burned down in 1925. The Harris brothers rebuilt this store in 1926. Harris was an important part of Redlands history.  Harris took a chance in 1957 and went with a new concept by opening a large store in Riverside, CA at the Riverside Plaza out of the downtown section. The Harris Company built a reputation for offering high quality merchandise and became the Marshall Field’s of the Inland Empire.  Harris had retail competitors like Broadway and Robinson’s but continued to hold its own and consumers flocked to the stores. Harris opened 9 stores tota...

          Friendship Friday- Lunch Always on Friday! Every Friday I get together with my some of my dear friends and have a long lunch to finish off the week. Typically there is 2 to 4 of us depending who is busy or not. I think it is special as we get so busy we just do not make time for ourselves. I look forward to my Friday Lunches. Of course, we sometimes meet during the week so but “always on Fridays”. If we let the time go by without getting together, we regret the missed time and unfortunately we end us losing touch with friends. How sad. And how many times have we said after a sickness or unforeseen accident has taken our friend or loved one, “I wish I would have spent more time with him?”   So today my friend Mary and I got together in Redlands  at Panera Cafe. The food was jus...

“GIDGET” Meet Gidget, a wired hair terrier who was abandoned at one of my REO properties. She weighed about 4 lbs and that was after I had had her a week and then took her to the vet for her shots. I thought she was about 2 months old but found out later she was 4 months old. The vet told me that Gidget was very lucky to have found you (me) as she would not have lived much longer; she was starving to death. He could tell from her breath and it took about 2 months before her breath got better? She has truly been a gift to our family. She is now 1 ½ years old and gets along fine with the other two dogs we have. She has the sweetest disposition of any dog I have even owned. I thank God every day for giving her to us. *Rescue pets make great companions. Check your local shelters if you are ...

Making Space in Your Closet; yes, it is Possible!       I have a walk-In closet and it always jam packed with clothes, shoes and purses. I try to keep it organized and have double shelves, built-ins for shoes and baskets but still until recently I could hardly move the hangers around to look for something plus the items would come back from the cleaners and I would wrinkle them trying to find space to hang them. (Messy and packed full of clothes)         Then, a couple of weeks ago, my friend Loretta and I met for our monthly shopping trip and she was telling me how she had converted her closet to new thin, suede-like hangers. I was thinking about the 4 hanging skirt hangers my mom had in her closet and never used. No, I said those wouldn’t fit in my closet as they are way too long. She...

Redlands Real Estate The Redlands real estate market has been extremely volatile in the past few years, from foreclosures, short sales and standard sales as well. But Redlands real estate transactions are still happening in spite of the market crash and tough market conditions. While it is true that many unfortunate Redlands homeowners are losing their properties to foreclosure, foreclosing banks and lenders are not in any hurry to list their Redlands foreclosed assets for sale. Banks have slowed the resale of their Redlands foreclosures to a trickle to keep the real estate marketplace competitive for buyers and to not flood the supply. It is a great time to buy Redlands real estate if you have the resources to do so, but there are many buyers and investors buying foreclosures. These c...

What is a Short Sale?   A short sale is when a homeowner sells their house for less money than they owe on the mortgage or mortgages. Short selling is an alternative to foreclosure for homeowners/borrowers who can no longer afford to keep mortgage payments current. Sometimes, to avoid going through the costs of foreclosure, a lender will authorize a short sale by allowing a homeowner to sell the home for less than the mortgage owed. Simplified Steps of a Short Sale: Homeowner signs a listing agreement with a real estate agent. This short sale listing agreement is subject to third-party/lender approval. The home is marketed to buyers. Seller accepts a buyer's purchase offer subject to the lender's approval. Seller's lender accepts the buyer's purchase offer, which is less than owed on se...
