26th Great Connecticut Traditional Jazz & Blues Extravaganza in Meriden During this stretch of warm hot weather we're having, what better way is there to do some serious chillaxin' than by listening to some cool jazz and blues? Being a jazz fan of long standing, I would venture to say, NONE. This coming Saturday, July 28th, the Sheraton Four Points Hotel in Meriden is once again playing host to the 26th Great Connecticut Traditional Jazz & Blues Extravaganza from 3 PM to 12 Midnight. This year, the performances will again take place on two stages: an indoor stage where four great blues bands will hold sway from 5 PM to 12 Midnight, and an outdoor venue featuring some of the area's best jazz ensembles from 3 PM to 12 Midnight. Here is a list of the scheduled performers:  Jazz Bands (Outs...

This particular client had his property listed for over 3 years as a short sale and several different agents and had all but given up. Until Chase started calling him, practically begging him to list his home as a short sale, and offering him a $10,000 incentive at closing to do it. That's when he turned to google and found me. We listed and had a contract within one week. When the short sale appraisal came in, it was $20,000 high. After a value dispute, the negotiator told me the absolute best they could do is $5,000 decrease from the appraised value. The negotiator instructed me to get back to him within 48 hours with an amendment increasing price or the file would be declined out. The buyer refused to budge, so I started to look for another buyer. Also, I just didn't call the negoti...
