Need help identifying this building in ELKHART LAKE WISCONSIN

NEED SOME HELP FROM MY FRIENDS--- I have someone trying to locate the Elkhart Lake building shown in the 1915 picture below. His grandfather ran a construction business out of it in the early 1900’s and he wanted to see if it is still standing today. Do you know where this might be located? — at Elkhart Lake, WI.
 
 

RE/MAX Agents Outperform the Competition

Free advanced search tools for home buyers from LISA BEAR of RE/MAX



If you are currently in the market for a home, you will find my website an excellent resource. The site is continually updated with new and valuable information to aid in your decision making process. www.lisabear.com or waukeshacountylakehomes.com

The search feature allows you to filter thousands of listings based on attributes that you select. You can simply search for houses in a certain area and price range, or you can look for houses that fit your specific style. If you know you want a brick house with gas heat and a garage, you can get the results you’re looking for. Most real estate websites don’t offer that degree of choice.

By signing up with the Property Research Center, which is free, you have access to features that will help you find and organize the listings that best fit your needs:
  • Saved Searches allow you to preserve your searches for reference at a later time. You can easily maintain lists of properties that match your criteria without having to re-enter any information, and there is no limit to the number of searches you can save.

  • The Favorites Folder allows you to save the individual listings that you find appealing. You can save favorites from different searches into sub-folders, giving you the power to organize your favorite listings however you see fit. This is a great way to put in order those specific listings that interest you most. Again, you may save as many favorites as you wish.

  • With the New Listing Notification service, you can be updated via e-mail as to new listings that match the criteria of any saved search. There is no need to check back for updates to your searches. All you have to do is decide whether you want daily, weekly, or bi-weekly notifications of the most recent listings.

I always strive to make the home-buying process as smooth as possible. With the Property Research Center you have the tools at your fingertips that can get you started in the right direction. Please do not hesitate to contact me with any questions; I would love to be of assistance.

Again, thank you for your interest. I look forward to hearing from you.

How a real estate agent, Lisa Bear of REMAX can help you.

If you are currently in the market for your first home, you may be curious as to how a Real Estate Agent can help you. You are about to be making an important decision for your future, a great investment of both money and time. I have a wealth of experience helping first time buyers like you make sound, informed decisions.

homeowner shopping list, things new homeowners need

Here are some ways that you can benefit from the help of a real estate professional:

  • Agents can help establish a plan for a home that fits your needs. Style, size, amenities, and other preferences will help determine what kind of home is best suited for you. 

  • They will help you to determine realistic spending limits. They can often explain alternative financing options or introduce you to a mortgage counselor. Agents can arrange to have you “pre-approved”, which can help improve your positioning in negotiations. 

  • Their access to all home listings within the multi-listing system enables them to evaluate based on your affordability and the qualities you desire. 

  • They have access to information on taxes, real estate values, utility costs, and municipal services, all of which can aid you in your decision to buy. 

  • They provide direct service by working for you as a buyer’s agent, helping to negotiate the best terms and price for you. 

  • They can make you comfortable with the closing process and they will obtain closing figures in advance for your review. 

  • They can recommend home inspectors, pest inspectors, and surveyors, and can help arrange inspections.

These are just a few ways that a quality real estate agent can help you in your journey towards buying your very first home. More information for first time buyers can be found on my website: www.lisabear.com or www.waukeshacountylakehomes.com or by calling me directly 262-893-5555.

I’m confident that I can provide the kind of exceptional service that will make this process an exciting one. Please don’t hesitate to call or e-mail me with any questions you may have.

Great Opportunity for GOLFERS and Golf Fans (US WOMENS OPEN 2012, PGA Championship in 2015, and the Ryder Cup in 2020

Jill Martin and myself (Lisa Bear) have been selected as Hole Captains for the 2012 US Women's Open being held at Blackwolf Run this July 2-8.

We are still looking for a few more volunteers to help us and we are hoping you might have some interest, and possibly even know a friend or two that might also. (Being a volunteer has some great perks!!!)

By volunteering you will be NOT be serving drinks and pushing hotdogs, instead you will be acting as a hole marshall.  We have lucked out and have been assigned Hole 9. (That’s 18 on the Meadows course).  So, we are right in the heart of all the activities.

What is a Marshal?  A Marshal is inside the ropes at the event and is responsible for not only crowd control, but also helps direct players, caddies, locate golf balls, etc... and gets to interact with media personnel that follow groups around the course.

What is the time committment?  Each Marshal is asked to volunteer 3-4 shifts of 4 hours each over the course of the week.  As a volunteer, you will receive food and beverage vouchers to use during your shift. (we currently have 30 people, the more we can get, the less time commitment required).  Jill and I are in charge of scheduling for our hole, so there will be flexibility to meet your availability.

The Marshal Committee for the championship is the largest committee and therefore takes the most coordination and planning.  Kohler has set the deadline to register as a Marshal at April 13th.  Registration must include payment of the volunteer fee. 

REGISTRATION  INFO
US Women's Open Marshal Opportunities
Link to Register: https://events.cuetoems.com/uswo_2012/register.aspx
Registration Code: ewgamkemarshals

The details of what you "get" will be included with the registration; however, I will tell you that those individuals that have already registered (and those that do before the deadline) are being given nice discounts for golf any of the 4 Kohler courses.  We expect there will be more discounts next year as well!  The 2012 U.S. WOMEN’S OPEN VOLUNTEER WEEKEND GETAWAY is May 4-7 (to pick up credentials) with exclusive rates on golf, hotels, spa treatments and more.  (Golf is half price on all the courses for us that weekend)


ADDED INCENTIVE:  Kohler has more major tournaments in the pipeline as well, with the PGA Championship coming back in 2015, and the Ryder Cup in 2020.  By volunteering for the US WOMENS OPEN, you will be given the opportunity to participate for these events as HOLE MARSHALLS. Now, that’s spectacular! (we have tickets for the RYDER Cup in Medinah, they are expensive and hard to come by, imagine free access the entire week by volunteering!)

If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me.  LISAANNBEAR@GMAIL.COM.   We hope you will consider volunteering for this great event!!

Happy Spring to all my Frozen nuts!

My Top 5 Spring Cleaning Tips To Get Ready For Spring Cleaning

1. Set aside enough time to accomplish all you have planned.

Don't create a three page detailed list for the kitchen and plan to spend 2 hours doing it. You will only get frustrated because you will pull everything out just when you need to move on, and everything will be in a worse state than before.

Clear your calendar for the proper amount of time you need, and treat that time as sacred as any other appointment.

2. Make appointments and reservations ahead of time.

If you need to rent a carpet cleaner, or are going to call professionals to clean your upholstery, for example, then go ahead and call them and set this up ahead of time to make sure your plan fits other people's schedules.

Do the same with family members who you will need to help you with various tasks, such as moving furniture and appliances.

3. Gather all your supplies and equipment before you begin.

There is nothing worse than getting ready to use a product and realizing you are almost out and will need to run to the store for more, or to get ready to use equipment and find out it is broken and in need of repair.
Check your cleaning supplies and purchase any additional items during your normal shopping trip instead of having to make a special trip.
Also, check all equipment for wear and tear and have items repaired or serviced ahead of time, if necessary.

4. Gather boxes and bags for decluttering.

Spring cleaning is a great time to get rid of a lot of extra stuff that has accumulated in your home over the past year. Make sure you can easily get rid of it all by getting lots of containers to put it in.

You may even need to rent a dumpster or a U-Haul to take large items, such as furniture, to a donation site or the dump.

5. Set up an upbeat music play list for while you clean.

Spring cleaning can get pretty tiring so set yourself up for success by getting music that makes you happy and energetic to listen to while you work.

RE/MAX 2012 Top 10 Housing Predictions

How Irish are you on MARCH 17th? Have a CRAIC on me!

How Irish are you on this Day? Did you know.....

 

Ireland has always been a land of myth and legend from leprechauns to fairies, but sometimes truth is stranger than fiction. In honor of  St. Patricks Day here are some of the strangest and weirdest facts about Ireland.
 
St. Patrick - St Patrick is credited to bringing, or broadening Christianity in Ireland and we celebrate his life for this, the faith he brought has been the reason for a legacy of strife. St. Patrick was not from Ireland but was captured and taken there as a slave.

The shamrock is associated with Ireland because of the legend surround Saint Patrick and how he taught the concept of the Holy Trinity of the Father, Son, and the Holy Ghost. The people could not understand and so he reached down and pulled out a common plant, the shamrock with one stem. He held it up and said there is only one stem, but three leaves. The four -leaf clover is often confused with the shamrock. While the four-leaf clover is a symbol of good luck, the three-leafed shamrock is mainly an Irish Christian symbol of the Holy Trinity and has a different significance.
The Irish Fairy - Catherine Kelly, called the "Irish Fairy," was the smallest Irish woman in history. At a slight height of 34 inches and a weight of 8 pounds, she died in 1785. She was just slightly larger than a newborn infant.  In the early 1780s a Miss Catherine Kelly (34 inches tall) went on "Dwarfism tour", where she met, a young man, 'a dealer in Manchester goods' who fell in love with Catherine, and pursued her. Catherine Kelly and her anonymous husband continued on her tour, and when she fell pregnant, their revenues increased.  She died at age 29 giving birth to their child, about six hours after her death, delivered of a large and full-grown child, twenty-two inches and a half long and weighing seven pounds. The child lived about two hours after its birth. 
 
If you are a lover of the dark, smooth stout Guinness, it may interest you to know that the original brewery in Dublin signed a 9,000 year lease on its property for $65 annually. No one will be stealing their right to the land in this lifetime, ensuring that the beer beloved by the world will continue to quench thirsts for years to come.
 
Irish Marriage & Divorce: Although the first divorce ever granted in Ireland was in 1997, up until the 1920’s, couples in Ireland could legally be married on St. Brigid's Day (February 1st) in Teltown, County Meath, by walking towards each other. They could divorce on St. Brigid’s day the following year by walking away from each other at the same spot.  Keep in mind though -
Medieval laws in Ireland allowed a man to divorce his wife if she damaged his honor through infidelity, thieving or “making a mess of everything.”


Erin go braugh is a phonetic version of "√Čirinn go br√°ch," which in Irish (Gaelic) means "Ireland Forever." It was an Irish blessing used to express allegiance to Ireland.
 

The Blarney Stone in Ireland has been named as the most  'unhygienic' tourist  attraction in the world.  It is kissed by more than 400,000 people each year and is now said to give you more than 'the gift of the gab' now!

For over 200 years, world statesmen, literary giants, and legends of the silver screen have joined the millions of pilgrims climbing the steps to kiss the Blarney Stone and gain the gift of eloquence. Its powers are unquestioned but its story still creates debate.

Once upon a time, visitors had to be held by the ankles and lowered head first over the battlements. Today, we are rather more cautious of the safety of our visitors. The Stone itself is still set in the wall below the battlements. To kiss it, one has to lean backwards (holding on to an iron railing) from the parapet walk. The prize is a real one as once kissed the stone bestows the gift of eloquence.


 Other Fun Facts

If you are searching for the city with the longest name in Ireland, look no further than Muckanaghederdauhaulia. Located in County Galway, try saying that name five times    fast. Muckanaghederdauhaulia means "pig-marsh between two saltwaters."

 If you loved the movie "Babe," you will enjoy knowing that back in the olden days, a pig often lived in the house with the family on an old Irish farm. Considered a part of the family, he was often known as "the gentleman who pays the rent." One has to wonder if these little gentlemen were house trained. And if the family avoided cooking and eating bacon in front of them.

Irish Windmills: Windmills around the world always turn in a counter-clockwise direction... except for the windmills in Ireland which turn clockwise

Ireland is the world’s only country with a musical instrument for a national symbol: the harp. 


Craic . . . first of all, it is pronounced "Crack". Put simply, having craic is having a good time or a laugh. However, due to an unfortunate similarity in pronunciation with a well-known and illegal narcotic substance, not everyone gets the right idea about it.

Hope you had a "CRAIC" reading this and
May your neighbors respect you, Troubles neglect you, The angels protect you, And Heaven accept you.

HAPPY ST. PATRICKS DAY
