Kensington Metropark is unique because it is located in two different counties and two different towns:Milford Township which is located in Oakland County, Michigan and Brighton Township which is located in Livingston County, Michigan.Access to the park is via Kensington, Kent Lake or Milford Roads which all have exit ramps from the I-96 Expressway.Kensington Metropark has something for everyone. If you love to ride horses there are equestrian trails.In the summertime cool off at the picturesque Maple or Martindale Beaches.  Martindale Beach has a newly constructed "Splash 'n Blast" with a water spray / splash area and a huge water slide which I have even enjoyed.  There is an admission charge to the Splash 'n Blast area.  There are concessions (food and drink) for sale at Martindale Be...

Located in Brighton Township, just outside the Brighton City limits, this platted subdivision has been attractive for first time homebuyers for many years.  Affordable ranch homes in Brighton schools, convenience to retail shopping and easy access to Interstate 96 and US 23 are some of the draws. The boundaries are roughly Grand River Avenue to the south, Interstate 96 to the north, Old US-23 to the east, and the Brighton City limits to the west, and there are 179 homes in this sub.  The Brighton Country Club subdivision is on the other side of I-96 and not included in this post. The streets are all public, so they’re maintained by either the road commission or the township. Originally, the subdivision was served by community wells, but in January 2008, water service was transferred to ...

If you are like me, you like to work.  Why?  Work gives us not only a paycheck, but a significant piece of sense of who we are.  Our work has a big influence on our self-esteem and sense of self-worth, which brings meaning to "good work."  I am like most people, who wants to take control of what I do, and improve the way I work, so in the end everybody wins.  Along the way, I want to keep learning, setting goals, and maintaining good interactions with others.  So everyday, not just today, we need to be "Zapped."  How?  1.  Take control over your work - be empowered 2.  Make meaningful decisions - choose to do right 3.  Measure your progress - document what you are doing 4.  Consider yourself valuable to those around you - get more out of the hours you spend on the job

Wow, and Wow again.  Here it is October, one month away from election day, and how the summer has passed us by.  It never ceases to amaze me, LIFE does not stop.  Here it is, past midnight, the first chance I've had in 2 months to do a blog.  Good news though.  I did have a "good" buyer "buy" a home the end of August. Still much to do, and end of year is near..... Where does the time go?  God is good all the Time, and all the Time God is good.  I hope your summer has been good, and may your fall season be even better.  I trust this blog will find you well.  God Bless you.  Be an encouragement to someone today.

 1.  Get involved in some of the training.  Create a plan.2.  Train or learn tasks for another job.  Learn something new.3.  Use special assignments as learning opportunities.  Do something different.4.  Use the tools you need to succeed.  Even if it means learning something new or using something new.I ask, "How can you grow, if you don't?"  If you always do what you always did, you will always get what you always got.  -Lu Kalaj-248-214-3319

I need to do a Short Sale with Countrywide Bank here this upcoming week.Does anyone have experience with any Short Sales with this bank?  What should I expect to see for my sellers credit?  How easy will it be to work with Countrywide, especially now that Bank of America is taking over?  Do banks accept offers as is?  Or do they commonly do counteroffers?  How close do they stay with what is currently going in the neighborhood?I was hoping to get your feedback in the AR family, before I begin on Monday.  Any advise would be widely accepted.  Lu KalajThe Michigan Group248-214-3319

What is going on?  I received 2 offers this week on 2 different homes.  Where the homes are both priced right.The one home is listed at $335,000, and an offer came in at $235,000.  This is $100,000 less the listed price.  I could not believe it.  The area sales are comping between $250K and $350K.  I just cant understand what agents are teaching buyers.  So, my motivated seller, counter-offered at $265,000, which I thought was admirable.  When all the motivated buyer did was came in at $250,000.  Even at the counter-offer, the seller would still have to come to the table with an additional $35,000 after all the closing costs.  I am so heartbroken for my seller.  The 2nd home is listed at $300,000 and an offer came in at $260,000.  This house was originally priced at $360,000 just 6 mont...

What's your process?When it comes to generating opportunities, I find this process to be very successful.1.  Collect information about people.  Get to know them personally, and professionally.  Establish a relationship.2.  Qualify opportunity - make it worth winning?3.  Explore and gather sufficient information to create a solution to a need.4.  Build and present a solution to a problem that exceeds the need.5.  Obtain commitment and overcome any issues - time to negotiate.6.  Close the opportunity in writing, and final signoff.7.  Implement and follow-thru on the deliverables.  Always say what you do, and DO what you say.8.  Keep track of progress, and ask for feedback.  Always look for ways to do things better next time.Lu KalajThe Michigan Group248-214-3319

its who you MARRY.  I must say, God is good to me.  He allowed me to marry, my best friend, my coach and encourager.  We know what each other thinks 95% of the time, we believe the same things 90% of the time, and we've only had 4 arguments in the last 10 years.  It s a blessing to be with someone who you can trust.  I wish to hear great relationship stories from others.Its my husband's birthday tomorrow, January 7.I think, going out to dinner, a few favorites:1.  Greek Town, New Parthenon2.  Olive Garden3.  Mongolian BarbecueIts a normal work day, find a sitter for the boys, and a quiet evening for dinner would be nice.   Any recommendations for a special birthday night out?  Lu Kalaj248-214-3319

The best way to self-improve, is to read the bible, the whole book.  You can do this several ways.....There are 66 books in the bible, 929 chapters in the Old Testament, and 254 Chapters in the New.  You can Read 3.5 chapters per day and read the bible in 338 days - with only 15 minutes per day.or You can Read 21 chapters per week and read the bible in 52 weeks - with 1.5 hours in a sitting.  This is one of the best ways to spend quality time with God, alone.  Remember, this is what Jesus did alot of.  Took time alone, departed from everyone, and spent it with God, the Father.  Talk about the best way to improve a "personal relationship" with someone special.  If we did more of this with those around us.  Imagine the lives we would impact.  May 2008 be the year that brings you closer to...

I saw another good movie last night, an MUST SEE, "Facing the Giants".Here are some good pointers....1.  Get off the fence - whose side are you on.2.  Until the Lord leads you, bloom where you are.3.  God sends the rain, you need to prepare to recieve it.4.  Our main purpose in life is = to Love God.5.  Resolve to give God your best and leave the results up to God.6.  Don't Quit till you have nothing left.7.  God gifted you with the ability to influence others, don't waste it.8.  A good coach pushes their team to the finish line.9.  Praise God when we win, and Praise God when we loose.10.  Nothing is impossible with God. Lu KalajThe Michigan Group248-214-3319
