A new study from Xobni found that more than half of adult workers check their email while on holiday. Even worse is that 55 percent check it every day and 28 percent check it multiple times each day. As someone who works with real estate agents on a regular basis, I am very aware of your die-hard work ethics. Since you are your own boss, your car is your office, your personal cell phone is how clients reach you, and your job is to be there for your buyers or sellers 24/7, I can see how it is a little difficult to actually relax and take a break. But for the sake of your sanity, you are going to have to force yourself to actually stop working during the holidays.  Make a genuine effort to disconnect your cell phone, laptop, iPad, and any of you other gadgets - at least during the time yo...

  Live - From Chicago's Northwest Suburbs (Palatine, Schaumburg, Buffalo Grove IL etc.) - Mortgage rates continue to rise (from the low not so long ago in the 4.17% area to (lets round it up slightly) 5.2% for a 30 year fixed. Now Ben Bernanke's goal with his Planned Open Market Operations (POMO's) was to help mortgage interest rates - but apparently - that plan is backfiring. Since 4.17% -- home prices will have to come down more than ten percent.  in order for a buyer to have the same monthly payment.  For example, for a $300,000 mortgage - the monthly payment was $1,432 when rates were around 4%.  That same 300k loan at 5.2% constitutes a payment of  $1,647/mo - about a $200/mo increase.  At 5.2% - each $10,000 equals about 54 bucks a month. This is just one of many macro-economic fa...

Palatine offers many homes that are less than 20 years old and with good maintenance can be a good choice. A small subdivision of semi custom luxury homes that fits this category is Lakeside Estates in Palatine. Located just south of Dundee Road off Quentin Road, Lakeside Estates has homes built between 1992 and 2000. Sizes range from 3000 square feet to just over 4000 square feet.

A Time Of Thanks! Thanksgiving in Palatine, IL The time of year has come where families gather on the last Thursday in November to celebrate and be thankful for all the blessings in their life. Thanksgiving is the time of year where the gifts are not wrapped in pretty paper with shinny bows, but instead are  the gifts of being loved and loving others. Gathering around the table to an amazing meal prepared by generations of your family telling stories and sharing recipes is an amazing gift that no money can buy.   A tradition that my family shares is everyone taking a turn and sharing what it is they are thankful for. We all laugh as the children say something silly and sometimes tear up at what an older relative says. It puts so much in persepective to hear how each and every one of us ...
