Where service and value meet

The best way to think out of the box is to avoid building one around yourself in the first place..  

If your selling your house soon, give me a call. With new, stricter lending laws in place, it is even more important to choose the right Real Estate Agent to prepare your house for sale, and as a buyer, assess potential homes for possible issues.

New lending laws require new procedures for listing homes. Of course changes can be a blessing or a curse.  One new, optional step can save you money as well as time, and aggravation from those little issues that have been popping up over the past few months. 
Having trouble closing your home sale? Stricter lending laws can work to your advantage, when you know what to expect,. what to look for, and what to do before signing the contract.

  This week in Real Estate in Fond du Lac

This is definitely a seller's market here in the Sheboygan area. That means there is a lot of competition between agents to list your home for sale. I wonder how many of them are willing to match my offer of a 5% selling commission with the features and services I provide.

Take a look at the LISTING INFORMATION drop down at the top right on this page. Or call me to get started. I do business the old fashion way. I answer my own phone. I also set my own selling appointments.Who would pay a service to do that and miss a golden opportunity to sell your home? After all, isn't that what a good sales person does?


New to the Sheboygan area. Now serving 

Adell, Cascade, Cedar Grove, Elk Hart Lake, Fond du Lac, Grafton, Ootsburg, Plymouth, Port Washington, Sheboygan, Sheboygan Falls, Random Lake, Waldo, West Bend,

and all points in between. 

I grew up in Milwaukee, built a house in Muskego, another in Menomonee Falls, then moved back to Milwaukee. Finally I found myself about 45 miles north in a small town in Sheboygan county where things were far different in many ways. Everything seemed more like I remembered life growing up in a time when things were much simpler.

I realized, this is what people are looking for, the way people remembered neighborhoods where they grew up. I also realized, people loved to take off on weekend trips to explore small towns, the atmosphere, and nostalgia they have to offer. Isn't it time to consider a move to an area where a short drive down the highway puts you in the middle of where you really want to be? To a place like in your imagination, or out of the old movies, except, you know all the people by name in every store and shop. A place where a short trip down a winding road takes you to towns people drive miles to find. A place people want to explore, and you call home.

I've found a lot of advantages in small town living. Rush hour is more like 30 seconds. At the worst, it is a semi truck followed by 4 cars. People stop for stop signs, and people in shopping parking lots. Opening doors for the next person is the norm. Saying, “hello,” or “good morning,” results in a conversation. Communication is done the old fashion way, dialing the phone, or face to face. Where a text message is known as the local newspaper, not a modern way for people to pester you. Small towns are places where neighbors, and strangers take time to help out each other, and no one keeps score. Politics is something that happens in another world, that may, or may not effect your way of life. If they were tax free, small towns would be called, paradise.

Isn't it time to look into small town living, where you can look out across open fields to see a sunset develop for nearly and hour, and feel like it will never disappear. Look out at night and see more stars than most people imagine. Or look at the lightening display of an approaching thunderstorm 100 miles away. You never know what advantages there are until you try a small town in Wisconsin on for size.

I am so excited about sharing this life style, I've decided to specialize in finding people homes off the beaten path.


 Tip of the Week

Drive Safely

These are some of the most eye opening videos I've seen online and I'd like to remind you all of a few safety rules I used to teach.
Never take your eyes off the road.
Always be aware of where you are and plan an escape route every few hundred feet.
Know where to go to avoid any obstacle at all time.
Drive only as fast as conditions allow.
If sight is impaired, count off 1-1000, 2-1000, 3-1000, 4-1000. Or 1 Mississippi …. At least once a mile. This will tell you distance traveled in 4 seconds.
Remember it will take you 2 seconds to react and 2 seconds to make a decision and react. 2 seconds is not a lot of time.
And don't use your cell phone while driving. Not even hands free whenever roads are slippery and never when traffic is around.
Please be careful. God loves you and so do a lot of people here.

Find Local Help in the Fond du Lac area for Short Sale and Foreclosure Assistance


Pre-Foreclosure Sales

This is a special pre-foreclosure program for homeowners facing foreclosure. This program is not associated with any government agency or program. This program is designed for homeowners behind in their payments who want to avoid the foreclosure process by selling their property at market price and keep the majority of equity in your home by paying less in Real Estate Commissions.

Internet Links with Help for Foreclosures

I searched for local Fond du Lac help for short sales and seemed to get everything except a link to a local Fond du Lac web site. It seems the pay for search result sites are on the top of the list when you need help. Are these the kind of sites you really want to visit when you are searching for someone local you can talk to?
