Home Build – Completed!

I’m a little late on the blog this week. As you can imagine we’ve been busy getting moved and settled. In any case our home build is complete, and we started moving in one week ago today. Our occupancy was 108 days from when the builder started digging. The original schedule was 120 days and Read More

Spring Market – Exceeding Our Goals

At the end of last year we posted some goals for 2012. Amazingly, as of June 18th we hit our real estate sales goal for the entire year. In May, we ranked in the top 5 of our office for sales, falling just behind some of the big name teams in Madison. What an awesome Read More

Hopefully this will give a few people in the business new perspective, so they can make some improvements. 1. Unresponsive Read More

How have the governments decisions over the past few days really affected you? My guess is not at all. Did Caterpillar really loose 10% in company value over the past 3 days?  Not Read More

Is the Dane County Housing Market Heating Up?

The past week has been a very busy real estate week. We have had lots of showings, a closing, we put three properties under contract, and we are waiting to hear on another counter offer (all in a matter of 5 days). I’ve talked to other real estate agents that suddenly got just as busy. Read More
