Does this sound familiar?  A couple of weeks ago, my daughter in law said that with the cold weather, the kids were going crazy in the house.  My wife had an idea that turned into a great day.  Pack the kids in the car and we will go to Timber Ridge water park in Lake Geneva, Wisconsin. As we have done in the past, Timber Ridge is close enough to take a mid-week escape from a gloomy winter.  Kids up to age 12  have a blast with water slides, pools, and arcade games.  While we cruize around the lazy river or enjoy some refreshment we know that the kids are in view or close enough to keep track of them.  My grandchildren can not get enough of the water park and suddenly are on their best behavior when they know a trip to Timber Ridge is being considered.  If you are looking for a change o...

 My intent was to post my ‘first' Real Estate Blog-entry before 2007 ended, but November, December and January turned out to be more productive months than we could ever anticipate, with contracts actually being written for closings after the first of the year.  And of course January is always 'education' month for many agents, so my time was also spent wisely, in classes.So, before the second quarter of 2008 is upon us, this writing shall become my ‘first' official entry.  I have also hesitated some, as the intent of this Blog is to 1) have the opportunity to meet other Brokers, agents, property managers and business professionals in the community, hear their concerns and comments, and maybe even provide some referrals along the way, since that is how I run my business and provide refe...
