Thanks for the Great Chicago Blackhawks Scrimmage!

Thanks for the Great 
Chicago Blackhawks Scrimmage!

     Anyone that knows me very well at all, knows that I'm a full-blown sports addict.  Golf, baseball, football, basketball, hockey, tennis ... heck, even Bull Riding.  If they call it a sport, I'm probably a fan, participating, or watching it.  Especially if it's a Chicago team.

     My poor wife, let's just say she's aware of my "addiction".  But after 36+ years of marriage, I think I've brain-washed her into thinking she likes sports as much as I do.  She "enables" me, to say the least.  (Either that or she's just given up trying to cure me.)

     A couple of months ago, Marilyn found a news article saying that our 2013 Stanley Cup winning Chicago Blackhawks hockey team was hosting a scrimmage for their fans in September.  Very inexpensive tickets were available to the public.  We decided to grab some up immediately.

     This last Monday I had the pleasure of hosting an outing to that Blackhawk scrimmage for friends, referral partners, clients, and a few family members too with those tickets we found.  Even hired a limo to transport a group back and forth to the United Center in Chicago.  Work doesn't have to be all about business. 

     Below is a picture taken of just some of our group in front of the United Center prior to the scrimmage ... that's me in the red Hawks shirt and Hawks cap.  (And Bobby Hull and Stan Mikita in the statues behind us!)

     I send out a big "thank you" to all that did me the honor of attending that evening.  I had a great night and enjoyed your company and the scrimmage immensely.  Hope you did too.  I thought the Blackhawks hosted an unbelievably classy event. 

    Let's go Hawks!!

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…
