Definition of foreclosure according to wikipedia is: The foreclosure process as applied to residential mortgage loans is a bank or other secured creditor selling or repossessing a parcel of real property (immovable property) after the owner has failed to comply with an agreement between the lender and borrower called a "mortgage" or "deed of trust". Commonly, the violation of the mortgag...

Diggin' Michigan since 1943 Beaverton Parade July 4'th, 2009 A catchy slogan has always gone far in advertising! Can you name where these come from? "GOOD TO THE LAST DROP" "HAVE IT YOUR WAY" "Choosy mothers choose ____" Some of you were named well for using in advertising! Like Sue for "Sue's News" This is what I use for my real estate websites! "BUYSELLHARRELL.COM" and WIXOM LAKE REAL ESTATE .com and "WinwithMarilyn.net" Selling Real Estate and licensed in Michigan since 2003!!!! Have a GREAT DAY!

All Bright Shores Parade was held at 1:00 PM Saturday July 4'th 2009 One thing I noticed, there was a lack of your old fashioned "Float" entries in the parade.

WIXOM LAKE REAL ESTATE - Marilyn Harrell REALTOR Real Estate in Beaverton MI 48612 Gardening can be similar to a real estate career.You must put a lot of time and energy into your garden or your career or you may not get what you really want. If you over turned a small plot of land, but never planted anything, whether you fertilize or not, the rain and the sun will eventually turn your little plot of land into a weed patch with a little bit of grass. You will have some flowers, because even most weeds eventually have flowers, but is this the kind of flower you want to have in your garden? If you plant flowers and then pull the weeds as they appear you will have a beautfiul little flower garden! A little time and effort with the correct timing make all the difference. As a realtor, this ...

Lilacs are so delightful! The aroma is so intoxicating, you can smell them from quite a distance. They make a beautiful green natural screen throughout the spring, summer and fall months. They do lose their leaves in the fall like so many of our trees and shrubs. They reproduce quickly and are very easy to transplant. Even a tiny little lilac will produce a flower or two. As they grow, they can turn tree like, and in a good year, they have tons of beautiful flowers. Some years a storm reduces their blossoming time, but this year has been GREAT! Take time to smell the flowers! Photos by Marilyn Harrell Realtor in BEAVERTON MI 48612 GLADWIN COUNTY WIXOM LAKE Century21 Smith-Miller, Inc.

                                                       Rare and beautiful "Pink Lady Slipper"  The pink lady slipper does not bloom every year, however, I cannot determine it's pattern. Sometimes apple trees or black berries have "Bumper" crops every other year, but it seems like these bloom for a few years in a row, and then for a year or two or even more, they don't. Typically we find them between Mothers Day and Memorial Day. We have never picked them or tried to transplant them, however, we do protect the area of land where they have been known to grow. Our son and his friends know not to drive their big mud trucks or four wheelers in this spot. In the year they do bloom, there are usually only 2 or 3 blooms. Last year there were two. We enjoy and admire their beauty. There may not...

This little flower looks so small and yet stands so tall. Perspective! How do you look at the glass? Is it half full? Is it half empty? The OPTIMIST is the DREAMER and the HOPER, The optimist will ANTICIPATE THE BEST POSSIBLE OUTCOME Are you hoping and dreaming and anticipating the BEST? It must start somewhere, let it begin with you.

While out showing waterfront cottages last week, I parked in front of this sign.  It's a great message - Short and to the point.   This is what you may look like if you         SEEK PEACE                                           AND PURSUE IT!   While you may not be able to change the world, you can make a difference.     Marilyn Harrell Realtor in Gladwin County

THIS OLD HOUSE OF MINE   There's a great surge of building wherever you go Up and down all the highways new homes seem to grow There are small ones and large ones, some costly and fine While I continue to live in this old house of mine.   I'd like a nice kitchen with windows so wide That I could see all the things that I love so outside, The trees and the grass and the clothes on the line, And Dad's flowers next to this old house of mine.   I'd like nice new cupboards with shelves all inside To store all the groceries and dishes to hide; But I'll paint my old cabinet of ancient design For it fits to a tee this old house of mine.   My house isn't beautiful, no not at all; It's not large and spacious and not very tall; But it's home and I love it more deeply with time -- It's a haven of r...

  Going "Muddin" is a favorite past time around here for many people of all ages. It a lot of work getting the truck ready to go. We have to check under the hood and check the tires, and crawl underneath! "First we aired the tires! Then we put in the fan blade. You'll have to ask my daddy what else had to be done. These pictures are from another mud bog, before I was born! Looking forward to lots of muddin this year with my mommy and daddy. "

   Photos by Julie Harrell The fourth of July is the most famous night for fireworks, yet on beautiful Wixom Lake, they're not just for Independence Day! There are several displays put on by home owners that either live on the lake or came up to their cottage to stay and play for awhile. Fire works can be seen all year round, but not every weekend.  News Years is always a great time for a bang! Being a realtor in the Wixom Lake area has been a challenging and rewarding experience. Working hard comes natural to me. My dad is a work-a-holic as well as a walking phone book, both traits apparently have been inherited from him! Nothing wrong with strong work ethics. Life is all about balance. I'll be enjoying fireworks throughout the year. Hope you will too. At least one pic loaded, I'll add...
