I was reading Lola Audu's post today on a simple, nice closing we had yesterday, when midway through the post she mentioned a Mortgage Lender who had come to an Open House I had at this home (Grand Rapids, MI) and "scared off" my one and only potential Buyer for that day.  He arrived outside, chi...
   I closed on my first HUD Home last week and I must say, all went quite smoothly, much to my surprise.  Anytime you're buying or selling an "as is" home, things can get a little scary.  But aside from the fact that HUD has their own complete set of paperwork to fill out (not too complicated, ju...
I had the wonderful privilege of being the guest of Mary Bigelow at the VIP party for the projected Platinum certified LEED Herkelrath Project in Onekama, MI as a kickoff for the Energy Fair. What a blast!!  And what an experience to see firsthand this home (with newly installed windmill) that Ma...
 DATELINE:  Sunday, June 10, 2007.  Had just left a family reunion, this was a make-up golf day because we had downpours last Sunday. Par 3, Hole 3 at Hidden Valley Golf Course in Shelbyville, MI.  AND I used a 7 wood:)  It's almost embarassing to say that, but I've finally deduced (along with my...
     When I first met Shawn back in '89 the first words out of her mouth to me were "Forgive me if I treat you like you don't know anything, because I'm assuming you don't."  It was my first day working in the office of a home improvement company where she worked and the boss was notorious for hi...

It's another official sign of spring in West Michigan, when the local Farmer's Markets begin opening up in the area.  The farmer's bring their fresh-picked fruits & vegetables, gardeners bring their gorgeous flowers and locals bring their home-made foods.  Grandville's Market opened officially to...
Hello AR!!  I'd love for you to extend a warm and wet welcome to Robert L. Brown. I met Robert earlier this year at God's Kitchen, where we both do volunteer work for the Meals on Wheels program in lovely downtown Grand Rapids, MI.  He's a riot!!  His very first post is something that's common sh...
I'm really directing this post to Mr. Random Real Estate Agent and Mrs. I Don't Own a Camera agent.  I've been trying to reach you for the last 5 days to set up a showing for one of your listings.  This is the SECOND time I've done this.  With the thousands of homes on the market, me calling you ...
I've been commenting on quite a few posts lately and am still referring to myself as a Newbie.  I've been blogging for a little over a month now, which in dog years would be 7 months, still a pup. I'm using the dog years analogy because in the internet world everything happens at lightening speed...
