Susan Says - Comments on Ann Arbor Real Estate, and Life

By
Real Estate Agent - Keller Williams Realty, Ann Arbor, MI
Random postings, about my family (does anyone care?), about my community (of course you care!), my philosophies of life (it's Ann Arbor, everyone cares...), and cats (don't care if you care), and my passions, real estate and design. I hope not to offend. Enjoy!

Two days ago my husband and I welcomed a bouncing Samsung blu-ray disc player into our lives - a BD-C6500.  A few months prior to this joyous event, we gave up hope of conceiving quality TV service outside of cable/satellite at anything resembling a sensible price. We only had satellite available...

If I could, tonight I would be a fly on the wall of a particular ICU room at HUP.  I want to see the room, see the patient, take on the pain, take on the worries, and fix all that is wrong.  That is asking a lot of a fly, but in this instance, as far away as I am in Michigan, knowing would be bet...

In a procrastination mode over the course of the last half hour or so, my daughter Sara and I were IMing.  She is in Boston; I am in Ann Arbor.  Today we were brainstorming a slogan for the personal food service company she is contemplating starting.  It's important to suggest the right thing and...

Somehow I got talked into this and here I am at the 11th hour trying to scare up my bail money to benefit the Muscular Dystrophy Association in the Ann Arbor, MI area.  The cause is certainly a good one, as is any charitable cause that helps families and patients get through their illnesses and d...

A man died in our community yesterday.  He was bicycling, struck by a young man driving in rush hour with a storm moving in.  The lives of these men and their families will never be the same, one gone far too early and the other likely under the shadow of this tragedy for the rest of his life.  I...

I just read a news piece where Bill Gates admitted to backing away from the high-tech environment he is hugely responsible for creating.  It seems that real life personal connections rather than electronic friendships might actually be something to value.  Yes, I am paraphrasing, inferring, and a...

First let me state the "facts" about the Ann Arbor Art Fair: *it will rain on opening day and perhaps throughout the entire Wednesday through Saturday event - there may even have been hail at times in past years - so far just some light rain on opening day this year - not bad! *locals will leave ...

Let me take you back to your real estate exam days. We all learned a lot of things to pass our real estate tests, and if you had an instructor like I had, you were likely told that most of what you learned to pass the test would not be needed in day-to-day business.  That probably explains why so...

OK, they don't call me the workin man, but that is the phrase from a classic Rush tune that my 19 year old son has adopted regarding his summer job.  He knew he needed to work, filling the gap between freshman and sophomore years at Michigan Tech, and applied just about everywhere when he arrived...

Being opinionless has never been my problem.  Being discreet about my opinion, well, I only occasionally have managed that.  I once got into trouble for a blog post, actually just a response to a blog post, that ended up costing me quite a few dollars and within certain circles damaged my reputat...

Generally anecdotal in style rather than a lot of statistics and facts. My goal is to allow fellow bloggers and the public to know who I am so they can comfortably work with me or refer business to me in the greater Ann Arbor, MI area.
