Another Satisfied Buyer for Schweitzer Mountain Condo We all have goals that are important to us.  I want for all my clients to feel they have been communicated with from start of process to finish.  I do not want them ever feeling they were being left out.  So to get this type of testimonial, fr...
Wonderful Valentines Day Date. . . It was a quiet evening at home.  Some reading.  No TV. No music.  And yet I can not imagine a much better partner to share the evening with.  I find myself overwhelmed by her eyes.  Her joy and contentment in just being with me.  It matter not if we are doing so...
Sandpoint Winter Carnival 2015 Sandpoint Idaho is having its Winter Carnival this weekend.  Many events, live bands, shows are planned for the Sandpoint area as well as Schweitzer Mountain Ski Resort.   One very popular event is the "Parade of Lights" through downtown Sandpoint on Friday evening ...
Are We Treating Past Clients Like We Are Trying to Win Their Business? I could not help but compare a recent hair cut to our Real Estate business.  My hair desperately needed cutting (both of them) and in calling for an appointment I got a message she would be out for two plus weeks.  I had alrea...
Friday the 13th Friday the 13th also known as Black Friday in some countries.  A day of concern for those who are superstitious.  Friday the 13th is difficult to pin down for its origin.

Luck Can Still Be a Factor,  No Matter How Good You Are I have a tree located between two homes in Naples Idaho.  It has been been dead for a while now.  I have been calling tree services, loggers, tree toppers to get rid of this tree.  Always the same story of how long they have been doing this ...
Just a Tiny 'Reminder' As I walked into Sandpoint Super One Grocery, on the way home this evening, I could not help but think of a couple of sayings, quotes...however you wish to call them.  "Two sides to every coin" & "The scales always keep things even" Here is what greets people the moment the...
Auto Mechanic's "Who You Going to Call?" ! I was recently very fortunate in catching what had turned into a serious problem before it became a safety incident on the highway.  I had been using an inexpensive large retail establishment for oil changes.  When asking them about specifics, I was conc...
Sandpoint Monday Movie Review - "Jupiter Ascending" "Jupiter Ascending" was a very pleasant surprise.  I did not realize until getting to the theater the main character was Channing Tatum.  For you ladies that appreciate a nice body he is shirtless about half the movie.  Cut and lean of old.  And...
