Testimonial from a Happy and Satisfied Buyer I was so excited to see the following email in my mail box this afternoon, another testimonial from a happy and satisfied buyer. -----Original Message-----From: Richard BehrendsSent: Wednesday, May 15, 2013 1:16 PMTo: kweehusetSubject: Testimonial   Hi Kwee, I've got to be honest, after searching the market for a house for over a year. It took 3 real estate agents, patience and perseverance to finally make it happen. Finding a home is one thing, finding the right home was quite another. Besides my looking for a house, and stresses I had to deal with, a lot depended on the character of the agent and how they interact with you. After all, we are not buying a health club membership! There are so many facets in buying a home, and you need the bes...

Do you consider this as Spring color? Silky Oak (Grevillea robusta). This golden bronze or orange yellow color tree is Silky oak; the scientific name is Grevillea robusta. The bright outstanding color above the house attracted my attention, while I was on my way home after showing property yesterday.       The Silky oak tree is from Australia and is not related to an oak tree, also not usually classified as a flowering tree. Its wood grain is similar to oak, and is used in making furniture and paneling.       It is a fast growing tree in warm temperatures; it will reach 80 to 100 feet in height. Its leave will drop in the colder months and sometimes become leafless. The beautiful and colorful flowers form an interesting brush shape. May be an ideal garden tree.

  Clown– What is Behind the Makeup Face? What is behind the makeup face of a clown? When I was young, my grand-mother took me and my cousin to the circus and I remember the clown made his/her audiences laugh with their funny actions. They were funny entertainers as well as performance artists. No one knows what is behind the makeup face.     Clowns are human too; the true feelings are covered up. However audiences only see the painted happy or sad faces.The crowd will laugh by their actions even just a wink from their eyes.Their real emotions will not be discovered.When alone, out of the costume, the show and the stage, they are like you and me, they cry.

  Q & A: What Advice would you Give Newbie Self?   Q: What advice would you give newbie self? A: My answer to a newbie self is as follows:   1. Keep about 30%(the more you make the more you reserve) of your net income per commission check for income tax payment, so that when tax is due on April 15, I have money to pay for it without paying penalty fees.   2. Do not spend in advance before you have the commission check in hand. Things can happen at closing table - especially a transaction with mortgage loan funding. If transaction falls through, you may not have money to pay for the expenditure incurred. 3. Keep proper year-to-date records for your listings, number of transactions closed, total commissions earned, total volume of sale, especially if you work in a franchise office – goal...

  Gardenia as White as Snow Gardenia is from China in the family of coffee plants and is the national flower of Pakistan.     The genus was named in honor of a florist/physician Dr. Alexander Garden of Charleston, S.C, who is responsible for its initial success as a house plant. Gardenia blooming season is between April and August. The beautiful flower is white as snow, and is used for corsages and for its fragrance. Some ladies even put it in their hair. Gardenia has been noted as one of the best smelling flowers, and it is usually pollinated by insects Gardenia Care Original gardenias grew in swampy or low mucky areas; therefore they like naturally fertile acid soil and a large amount of water. It is best to use your coffee grounds, oak tree leaves or pine tree needles for mulch cover...
