Here are some good quotes from Charles Schulz "Peanuts" creator and cartoonist. Peanuts died in 2000 at age 77. I still enjoy his old comics that run in our newspaper still. Charlie Brown's biggest fault was listening to Lucy. All of his quotes below are great. But I especially love "If I were given the opportunity to present a gift to the next generation, it would be the ability for each individual to learn to laugh at himself. Thank you Charles for all of the laughs you brought to peoples lives, through your talents!   A whole stack of memories never equal one little hope. Charles M. Schulz All you need is love. But a little chocolate now and then doesn't hurt. Charles M. Schulz Aunt Marion was right... Never marry a musician, and never answer the door. Charles M. Schulz Big sisters a...

A client of ours considering a move to the Metro East recently asked us for information on Special Education resources in the areas of Belleville, O'Fallon, Edwardsville, Collinsville, Waterloo, Columbia and the outlying areas... This is what we found out from helpful parents, area school districts and the Special Olympics of Southwestern Illinois... Saint Clair and Monroe County Special Education Departments have a centralized office where people can learn about programs offered in their region. Madison County Special Education does not have a centeralized office. According to one Madison County Special Ed director, contacting each district's Special Ed Department individually to learn more about their specific programs is important since programs vary slightly dependant on student nee...

Those were the days... When people who were tired of their homes for being to small or too old or not in the 'right' neighborhood could have a change of scenery in the blink of an eye and maybe even make a little money to buy a plasma or new furniture for the new home.  Housing prices were rising and homes were selling.  It was easy. The market shifted and investors took note.  They entered the market in droves to check out all the new foreclosures and to buy a few properties.  Anyone who had ever had a passing thought about rehabbing a home inquired deeper.  Some bought.. some didn't. Then we had the first time home buyer credit and the government and media joined forces to promote homeownership... do it now and get a prize!  Save our economy!  First time homebuyers caught on and other...

Pricing right, presentation and property condition (Three P's) are the recipe for getting homes sold in today's market.  Today's buyers are looking for a 'good value' and adhering to the three P's allows a property to stand out as a good value.  Pricing competitively will allow a property to stand out from the competition. Similarly, presenting a thoughtfully 'staged'  home will allow the buyer to visually move into the property and proper upkeep of a home minimizes the buyers list of objections.  A skilled Realtor with staging experience can assist with successful preparation of a property in today's market. To determine whether a home might be considered a 'good value' to a potential buyer, first evaluate the three P's; price, presentation, and property condition.  Next, compare the p...
