Like all landlords, we have had our share of great tenants and just once, not-so-great tenants (a long blog post in itself)...and this month, we have the pleasure of checking out our summer rental cottage on the Outer Banks of North Carolina, where the season has just ended as well as a year roun...
No, this isn't my Halloween costume.  But it is an apt representation of how I felt a couple of hours ago when a listing agent for a rental property for which my clients had signed a lease called to say her owner was now unhappy with the negotiated terms of the lease and was refusing to sign.

I have a sweet tooth.  In fact, sugar ranks as my favorite condiment and caramel is my favorite food group. Sprinkle that caramel with a little sea salt and I'm in Nirvana. So, imagine my excitement to hear of the FREE "Poppin' Time Snacker Tasting" this Saturday, October 23, from 1 - 4 pm at Th...
