One home that I had was on the market forever or so it seemed we lowered the price and had great turnouts at the open houses but no offers.

This is the time of the year when graduation takes place and all the graduates embark on an adventure unknown to them. Some will further their education and some will choose the job market.

As I was driving home from an open house the call came, it was from my mother, can you come right away your father needs to go to the hospital he can't breathe. Panic was my first thought, then I asked how bad it was and determined we probably didn't need the ambulance but wasn't sure, he had thi...

Have you ever done something that after you did it you just knew it was the right thing to do?
