Some go for stylish good looks when buying electronics and other look at the performance and forget about the style. I have been using bluetooth hands free wireless technology for a long time for my cell phone.  The deal is simple for me.  I purchase one of the top of the line ear piece units called Jawbone.  It isn't for me, it makes my ear ache, the noise cancelling qualities are less then desirable. Less than three months ago I upgraded to the Jawbone.  I want hands free when I drive.  It makes using the phone very easy and I have control while driving with both hands available.  That was the plan anyway, having a hands free technology.  It turns out to be after adjusting, swapping ear buds and ear clips to hold the unit I still have to press on the unit with my finger to get people ...

When I was a kid Memorial Day was always more than a holiday.  We bought flowers, we went to the cemetery to clean up grave sites of relatives that had gone before us. I can remember my grandmother telling stories about each family member.  Things that were little memorial epitaphs, snippets of their lives.  It always make me think of how I would rather be doing anything but going to the cemetery.  Then as I got older it became more significant. Yesterday I made my homage to the cemetery.  I met some people that had relatives just behind the sites of my Great Grand Parents, my Grand Parents and my Mother.  I was younger (a lot younger!) than them but knew more because of my trips to the cemetery over the years.  I knew more of the history even though I moved away some 37 years ago. They...

It seems to be happening more and more these days.  When the economy tanks so does marriages and there is more than enough blame to go around. I have just listed a couple different properties were the spouses are tangled in an emotional battle.  They could care less if the home actually sells and for how much as long as their former spouse gets nothing! What's wrong with this picture?  It is simple...emotions can make for a very good opportunity to start over turn ugly.  In the two cases I am representing they just can not see the value of co-operation.  So I had to take the time to meet with them independently to discuss the rules of my representation.  Yes I said rules.  I had to put it to them like a referee. I thought of having them sit in a corner until they cleared their heads.  T...

I  have been showing off some of the family post cards that have been in the family for over 100 years in some cases.  Most are the turn of the century.  They are very interesting to me because I had never seen them until my mother passed away.  We didn't know she had them. The other thing that makes them interesting is have lived in the area and seen these locations from a modern day perspective. These will send you back to era that was just as hard as today without all the handy expressway or delivery systems.  Maybe it was better? This is Reed City, Michigan the town I was born in 50 years after this photo was taken.  You can see a buckboard carriage toward the center left.  This was Union Station, everywhere had a Union station because of the Union Railroad. This is Baldwin Michigan...

The Reed City area has seen steady growth mostly from companies moving in like the water plant, others have cut back or maintained a status quo.  So how has this affected the Reed City area housing market?  I was raised a few miles down the road in Evart.  My sister lives in Reed City and built a new home north of town.  The market is simple, finding the right buyer for your home.Now don't you feel better...finding the right buyer is not that easy.  In fact finding a local buyer is harder yet.  So can you find a buyer for your home? Easier than you may think.  Here is another one....you have to market where the buyers are located that want a property like yours.  The best place to do this is out-of-town buyers.  Right now your have as many out-of-town buyers looking for property as you ...
