   Homes for Heroes is a nationwide program started shortly after 9-11. I joined Homes for Heroes because it is a way of giving back to heroes, the military, law enforcement, healthcare workers, and teachers in my local community. Having a number of family members who are military and law enforcement makes me appreciate the hard work, dedication and sacrifice that they have given us. Homes for Heroes is a way that I can say thank you to heroes like yourself who have given so much of themselves, and added so much to so many lives. I am a realtor/broker with Coldwell Banker Honig-Bell for 12 years helping buyers and sellers with their real estate needs.

Until your good name is besmirched. Homes for Heroes in the past has taken people leveraging our brand as flattery. We often ask if they would like to continue to use our good name by joining forces with us, and if they do not want to we are okay with that decision also. But recently something came up that does need to be addressed. We will let the Morris Daily Herald explain it. Illinois allegation hurts ‘real' Heroes Minneapolis, Minn-When Illinois Attorney General Lisa Madigan took enforcement action against the Minooka, Ill.-based Homes for Heroes Inc., says Brad Oosterhuis, it was not a reflection on the "real" Home for Heroes. “Our organization has been serving heroes continuously since 2002, and we have a serious concern that the publication of the charge against the Homes for He...

Curious as to what has been happening in the Coal City/ Diamond real estate market? Below is a list of what has sold in the last 6 months and what is currently available. You'll see that few 2 bedrooms have really sold wonderfully recently; quick and for an average over list price. I recently placed one under contract that won't hurt that trend when it closes later this month.

In Coal City, we've been waiting with baited breath for over a year to see the results of the Early Childhood Center. The school measures out at around 74,000 square feet and features 12 kindergarten rooms, 12 first grade rooms and 6 for pre-schoolers. Obviously, these will be the grades the school houses, after which students will attend Coal City Elementary for 2nd and 3rd grade, Coal City Intermediate for 4th and 5th grade and Coal City Middle School for 6th, 7th and 8th before heading off to high school. At 6pm on Thursday August 14th, there will be a ribbon cutting ceremony followed by an open house complete with refreshments (until 8pm). Parents, children and community members will have the opportunity to meet and greet educators and administrators of the district while checking ...

"Buyers are liars." My assumption is that this phrase isn't foreign to you. It certainly wasn't me as I learned it in my first office about a month after breaking into real estate. I have always found it cheesy, defeatist, and a pretty good indicator that agents that say it aren't spectacular at their job. Now I know that's the same rash generalization that they are making- but whatever. A couple months back I received a referral from a family friend (technically our wives are really good friends and we're friendly acquaintances). After speaking with this gentleman for an hour or so and explaining the finer points and process of buying a home I met the young buyer and his fiancee at a house and showed them another couple. He still wasn't pre-approved, but I didn't fret, he was a nice, ...

Lyn Sims wrote an interesting blog the other day about an email she recieved from Zillow that I HIGHLY recommend you check out. I had a comment for her and a bunch more to say/ question but didn't want to highjack her blogged thoughts taking them in a direction of my own. A little background for those readers that don't know- zillow.com is a real estate community in which home sellers (both real estate brokers and owners) can advertise their homes. I've been a member for a while and have my listings posted there. Recently a client of mine mentioned that he'd be attempting to sell his home in a year or so and that Zillow's Zestimate (yes, everything's with a Z) had told him it was worth x amount of dollars. I warned him not to put too much stock in that as a house in my area of Diamond, ...

One of the most overlooked aspects in selling homes, I believe, is the absorption rate or the ability to sell off all the homes in a region that are currently for sale. It is tallied in a relatively simple manner- even for non-stat nerds (which I, unfortunately, am NOT a part of)... Take the number of homes that have sold in an area over a period of time (6 months, one year, whatever). Divide it by the amount of time (six months by 6, one year by 12 and so on). That will give you the amount of homes that sell per month. Divide number of homes currently for sale by the amount of homes that sell per month and you will find out how many months of inventory are available. Coal City/ Diamond/ Carbon Hill's detached homes for 5-18-08: 83 sold in the last 12 months....or 6.9 per month 88 activ...
