I have the good fortunate of having a Spouse who is a superb gourmet cook, who keeps me going the fitness center. For years she has faithfully used Pampered Chef products, taking advantage of gaining lots of their quality products for free via hosting Pampered Chef parties. Finally honoring years of loyalty, her consultant Michele over a year ago after hinting for years my Spouse should become her own consultant, stop by one evening for a heart to heart, you need to come into this business meeting. It took her about a month to decide.  She asked me what I thought about it with her having a very demanding career time wise?  I told her if she had peace about it, then she should do it.  I told her I would do my part to help her promote her business. Now, she is teaching many of her valued ...

Romancing the Home: Love is in the Air   When searching for a home, it is easy to "fall in love" with a property. Before you put in that offer though, ask yourself can you BE in love in the house? How a home stacks up in the realm of romance might take top tier in some people's list of priorities, but even if it doesn't, issues like privacy, noise, temperature and certain amenities can definitely break up your love affair with a property.   Loving a home and being in love in a home can go together. Look at properties that are well designed and maintained, easy to live in, and that are in areas that foster a sense of sanctuary, enabling people to be at their best. Homeowners that are seeking to amp up the warm feelings of love in their environment can find ways to evaluate homes with the...

Pets in the Mix: From Petrifying to Purrfect   A beautiful cat or friendly dog might be just the thing for you and your family. As members of the household, pets have a place in your home and your heart. But what about pets and all that go with them when you are buying or selling a home? In the case of a large investment such as buying or selling a property, addressing the topic of pets during this transaction is worthy of some sniffing out.   True animal lovers often have homes that are especially welcoming to animals and people alike. Homes that are set back from roads or traffic, or are close to dog parks or walking trails might have special appeal. Horse-properties are often fenced, have pasture land or barns, and storage for feed. Whether or not you have pets, if you are selling a ...

I get the opportunity daily to work in a very affordable marketplace where Cash Buyers can find some amazing deals.  People are still amazed when I tell them they can purchase an almost move in condition foreclosure home on the South Side of Chicago for under $40,000.00.  A little over a month a ago I got another very familiar call I get often, this one from a Young-Man who informed me he had saved his money, and wanted to purchase a home for cash.  He had selected a home I was marketing in the Morgan Park neighborhood.  This neighborhood was made famous by initially the Play, and later the Movie, "A Raisin In The Sun."  After inquiring if he was willing to produce evidence he had proof of funds, and if he understood the real estate term Dual-Agency, I agree to meet him for a tour of th...

As fraud savvy I believe I am, I now know I have to remind myself daily I have Caller-id for a reason on all my telephones.  A couple of days ago I got an early morning call waking me up out of my good sleep.  I looked at the caller-id, and it said NO-NAME.  Normally, I would not answer the call, and just wait for them to leave a message.  The other morning in my waking up Fog I answered the call.  The Caller with an Indian accent announced He was calling from Microsoft.  He told me their computer systems alerted them to call me because my computer was in danger of crashing within a couple of days.  He asked me to turn on my computer so he could show me where I had errors and warnings.  Still in my Fog I complied and followed his instructions as he showed me, and told me if I had more t...

Fall Fixes NOT to Nix   While spring may be the time for cleaning, fall is surely the time for fixing. Simple improvements can save money in utility bills as well as prevent costly repairs in the future. Like a well-played game of football, the homeowner needs a good playbook to get ahead in the game. The trick is, by the time it is October many areas might be into the first quarter -- well on the way to frigid temperatures - so prioritize and use this valuable time to the best advantage.   Play it Safe   A good bet is "Safety First." Start simple: look at entrances and exits in and around the home and consider how they may be affected by the change in seasons. Look at safety issues around moisture, temperature and light. Are there areas that are particularly dark that need more lightin...

Hiring Help: From "How To" to "Hurrah!"   Whether you are in over your head or juggling too many tasks, hiring help can be a great idea. Projects can benefit from specialized expertise, more work can be accomplished at one time, and as a homeowner you can step back from the tasks at hand to get a wider perspective. The time and energy you save may more than offset the expense.   However, trouble ensues when the wrong help is hired. Establishing what you want to accomplish is essential, so size things up thoroughly. When looking at a specific project or problem, you might benefit from having a few people look at it and offer ideas of how they might approach a solution. Sometimes the first ideas are not the best, and as you look at issues, new priorities emerge. Are you looking for an int...
