Five Ways to Enhance Your
Home's Curb Appeal


The first long glimpse of a house, as a potential buyer steers toward the curb and then slows to a stop, is a critical moment. It could be an experience of love at first sight or immediate dislike—or something in between. As the seller, you definitely want the person who's shopping for a home to begin developing a good impression of your house before they step out of the car or click on your online listing. Here are five ways to ensure... Read More

Small Gains in the
National Housing Market


Freddie Mac's Multi-Indicator Market Index (MiMi) analyzes home-purchase applications, payment-to-income ratios, employment figures, and the number of on-time mortgage payments in markets across the country to determine the stability of the housing market. All of these indicators point to a slight improvement in the housing market as it heads into the busy spring season. January's national MiMi value reached 82.7; while this isn't as impressive...

Safe Alternatives to Toxic Cleaners


Open almost any kitchen cabinet and you're bound to find cleaning supplies made with toxic chemicals or other pollutants. While harsh chemical cleaners have become increasingly popular, there are plenty of all-natural alternatives that work just as well—usually at a fraction of the cost! Below are some common household ingredients that pull double duty as effective, eco-friendly cleaning agents.

White Vinegar: Despite the strong smell, vinegar is quite versatile when it comes to cleaning. In fact, due to its natural disinfecting and deodorizing properties, it makes an effective 
all-purpose cleaner for virtually every surface in the house. Mixed 50/50 with water, white vinegar can be used to cut grease, get rid of wax buildup on wooden floors, kill mildew, and even get rid of stains... Read More

Featured Testimonial

by Karen & Tom Doolan

We interviewed several Realtors. It was critical to us that the realtor we selected has not only a good marketing plan but was also prepared to help us consult in what we need to do to get our property ready.  Lisa had an excellent marketing plan that was grounded in social media and how buyers act in today's market! Very impressive!                           

Lisa was our advocate and her mission was to sell our home all along the way. We worked with Lisa for months before the property went on sale to ensure the house would show the BEST when it went on the market. As we got closer to putting the house on the market Lisa started to put her 'coming soon' marketing plan into action. The day our house went on sale Friday March 4th we had several showing with many lined up for the weekend. We sold in 36 hours, over list price. Here negotiation skills were awesome. We agreed to her every move as she is the professional we hired to get the most $'s from our home. Lisa is the most professional and focused Realtor we have had the benefit of working with. After the sale she was right there for the home inspection. We were still out of town for the winter during the inspection and Lisa jumped in with her husband to resolve a broken egress window. We are really happy we listened to everything Lisa recommended!

Excellent, excellent, excellent! 

If you are serious about selling your home use Lisa and listen to her recommendations!
