  Head Over to the New Park 'N Bark Dog Park in Mokena These days, it seems like dogs are everywhere!   For good reason.  Did you know that ... Dog ownership has grown 29% over the last decade? Multiple-Dog households grew at an even faster rate? The growth in the number of Dog Owners far exceeds our population growth? Millennials and Boomers lead the way in growth in dog ownership? There are many health benefits to be found for all those dogs (and their owners) during daily dog walks and playtime.  But dogs receive benefits from playing with other dogs too.  Pups are very social creatures.  They run and play harder when other dogs are involved.  They rid themselves of pent-up energy, become more social, and can even improve their behavior and social skills by playing with other canines...

  A Very Satisfying Mortgage Closing        Some might say that I'd worked almost a lifetime to experience the Closing on a recent loan ...       How's that?     Take a look at the pic below.  It was taken a little over 2.5 decades ago during a program presented by a class at St. John's Pre-school in Mokena.        The cute little guy on the far right wearing an elf's hat is my youngest son, John.  The little cutie wearing the big red heart in the front?  She's my latest successful mortgage client, Carrie.  As of last Friday, she's a brand new ... very happy home owner.       Both were a little over 3 years old at the time this picture was taken.   Told you I'd been working on this Closing for a while!     Some transactions are unbelievably satisfying.  This one ... well it was definite...

      There are Many Joys and Benefits to Working with      Long Time Referral Partners and Friends ... But Today I Won't be Experiencing Them        Having been in the mortgage business for so long and having served many of the same referral partners during that entire time, has its good points and its bad.  I think the good ones are fairly obvious.  Who doesn't love having established long term relationships and working with those that have, after so many years, become good friends too?      But as many pluses as there are to these situations, there are also those times when you experience, and must deal with, the "other" side of the coin.  I experienced one of those times today.  Here's what's happening:      A long time referral partner/agent sent me a lead for a mortgage.  Good!  A...

Two of my favorite things, Pizza and Santa, who can argue with that? A tradition that never gets old, dinner with Santa. As a kid I remember going every year to breakfast with Santa and it's wonderful to see the tradition continue. Dec. 12 2012 from 4:30pm to 7:30pm Santa will be visiting Aurellios Pizza in Mokena. Aurelliios is a very popular restaurant known for their pizza. They do however have a variety of items on their menu so if you don't have the taste for Pizza, you do have other options. Some of my favorite moments in my childhood were wrapped around Christmas and Santa. Some of these memories include going to see Santa in the mall, breakfast with Santa, going to parties with Santa, writing Santa a note and leaving cookies and milk for him. Waking up the next morning with all ...

    Being Pre-Qualified for your Mortgage Financing doesn't have to be Scarey.  Eliminate the Fear Factor                    Even after reading only a few of my mortgage posts, you'll probably pick-up on this  recurring theme  ... the importance of being prepared for your mortgage processing.        I feel strongly that whether you're in the infant stage of your pursuit, further along and actively seeking a property and financing for that home, or heading to the Closing itself, your success is dependent to an unbelievably large degree on how well prepared you are.           But I have to admit, at times I fear that by emphasizing the need for preparation as strongly as I do ... I risk scaring you some.        I've mentioned in prior posts, that the number of pieces of info I need as you...

We have a copy in our family room at home too. Hard to imagine staying worked-up or stressed after seeing this little face, right?           Henry's cute smiling face is the last thing I see each night when I shut my computer down.  He helps his grandpa out just by ...
