Sending Holiday Wishes!

  




Sending Holiday Wishes!



     Each year I find myself wishing the Holidays would become simpler.  And perhaps naively after our 2 boys became older, were out on their own, and then had their own families ... I thought that'd become true.

      Nope!

     Add two grandbabies into the mix, along with a new business office and venture during the year, and life in general becoming more hectic ... and my wish simply didn't become reality.

     But I wouldn't change a thing.  I'm blessed and I know it.  I have a wonderful supportive wife, 2 fantastic sons of which I am very proud, 2 beautiful and loving daughter-in-laws, and those grandbabies ... ohhhh ... those grandbabies!  How do I even begin to tell you how much I love and adore them?

    Add that the prospects for our country's economy returning to better health during the coming '2013' New Year seem more positive ... and for that I rejoice.  I am hopeful that each of us will share in renewed prosperity and less stressful times during the coming year.
 
      I send my Best Wishes for a Merry Christmas ... Happy Holidays ... Happy New Year ... out to all.  

     I hope you are surrounded by the people you care most about.  And that you find Peace, Joy, Good Health, Prosperity, Family, Friends, and Love in huge measure within your future ...

Property Addresses: Gettin' Down to the Nitty Gritty

Property Addresses:   Gettin' Down to the Nitty Gritty

Take just a second and read through the following statements ...


“The devil is in the details” 
... "in life, it is often the tiny details that end up 
being the most important"

"Get Down To The Nitty Gritty"

“Little details have special talents in 
creating big problems!” 

“Sweat the details”

"Success is the sum of details"

Details ...Details ... it's all about the details ...
     And I'll admit it, I'm a bit of a nerd about them.  My whole family is.  Details, the intricacies, the little things ... they matter to us.
When I was growing up, a typical conversation (and argument) between my brothers and myself at the dinner table or in the backyard centered around "details".  It didn't matter what the topic was, it was the minor differences ... the details about the topic ... that we argued about.  I'm sure we drove our parents crazy.

Ready for Fall? It's Arriving Soon

Ready for Fall?  It's Arriving Soon

Friend ...

Maybe it's because football season has started. Maybe it's the kids being back in school. Or because the night air is cooler. But a sense of Fall has arrived here in Chicagoland ...

The Fall Season brings changes with it. Changes in temperatures. Changes to the clothing we wear. Our focus seems to shift with the coming of shorter days, falling leaves, and crisp air.

Fall can be the perfect time to do a multitude of things. You can prep your home for the upcoming winter weather ... or for Fall listing and sale. 

But whether you're moving on or staying put, Fall is a great time to declutter and organize your home inside and out ... and your finances too.

I've googled like crazy to find interesting articles filled with Fall info, ideas, tips, and photos. Articles that will help you usher the Fall Season in at your house. I hope you enjoy reading the articles offered below and that they inspire you to make any needed changes.

Paper or Paperless billing? Which serves YOUR needs best?

Paper or Paperless billing?  Which serves YOUR needs best?


These days, companies are under pressure to go "green" and become more environmentally friendly.  As a result, an increasing number of businesses are offering their customers a paperless option with which to receive and pay their bills. 

There are obviously many positives to be found within these paperless services:


Trees are saved  Reduced postage costs  Less paper documentation to organize or save/storePossible rewards for switching to paperlessPayments can often be made/posted same-dayAutomated payments can be set-upMore
But I can tell you from my vantage point as a Chicagoland/IL/WI Mortgage Originator, there are also negatives to be found within paperless methods.  For some of my mortgage clients, the choice of going "paperless" just hasn't worked well.

 For some, an email or text reminder regarding payment of bills has not been enough. They NEED a paper billing to arrive in their mail. 

Their paper bil…
