Arkansas is LIT!  Let's take a trip through the natural state to find some of this year's brightest and best Holiday Lighting Displays.

I can remember grabbing a thermos of Hot Cocoa and loading up "The Wagon Queen Family Truckster"  and sitting in the very back of the wagon with a blanket and my siblings who mercilessly tortured me while traveling the roads of my home state in Arkansas looking at the Christmas Lights.   We were listening to Alvin and the Chipmunks and John Denver and the Muppets Christmas albums. These are some of the best memories we had as a family and a tradition that I would later share with my kids in Wisconsin.; complete with the festive hunt in freezing temperatures looking for the perfect Christmas Tree and staving off…

I have heard so many different variations as to why now is a bad time to buy a home and rebuttals that say now is a good time to buy a home; but who's right?  Well, if you want the brass tax and the cold hard truth; no one knows for sure what the market is going to do.  There is not a predictor for a market like this because we haven't seen a market like this before. Even those who have been in the Real Estate Business for over 45 years cannot predict with any kind of certainty what the future state of the Real Estate Market is going to be in the short term or in the long term. There just isn't a crystal ball or magic 8 ball   answer for the current state of our economic circumstances. I am the furthest thing from an economist but it would appear that…

Whenever you are looking to buy a home, car, or take out an installment loan of any kind; the chances are very likely you will need to know what your credit score is in order to know if you are receiving the best deal with regards to special finance offers and interest rates. I have heard it all my life that you should closely monitor your credit score and your credit report for any mistakes or to see if any fraudulent activity has been initiated with your identity without your knowledge. (AKA Identity Theft)

I wholeheartedly agree with this advice and we used credit karma to help with monitoring our credit. However, we soon realized that there is an issue with the accuracy of the scores on credit karma. This was blatantly evident when we went to…

Bartender that works at Basin Park Hotel took this picture of the child ghost in the hall that many have reported seeing....

Yes, it is haunted....

It was around Christmas time 2021 and Kathy had always wanted to stay in a haunted hotel overnight. Anyone that knows me...knows that I am Shaggy when it comes to ghosts, scary movies, and haunted houses. I literally get "ghost" myself at the slightest bump in the night or unexpected "scare" and I run. Fight or Flight is strong with me! I often tell people if you see me running it's because I don't have to be faster than whatever is chasing me....I just have to be faster than you! There is no shame in my game. To truly understand what an incredible sacrifice I made in going…

South Park Realtors Aaaaand it's gone....South park creators Trey Parker and Matt Stone created an episode in Season 25 called "city people." This episode really shows exactly how crazy the real estate market has been over the last few years and has sparked numerous meme's across social media. The episode shows how the town of South Park is being hit with an influx of relocation and Cartman (the show's protaginist) becomes a Real Estate Agent operating without a real estate license and how he is getting overpriced bids for south park homes and his mother tries to explain to him how the market reacts to over inflated bids that don't match market value and will never make it through escrow.

Arkansas Razorback

Hit That Line! 

Have you ever wondered where our fight song came from and why it was chosen or even who wrote it? It's as iconic as calling the hogs! Little known fact it was written by a student at the time with the help of his music professor. 

The Arkansas Razorbacks Fight Song, also known as Arkansas Fight, is a proud and spirited anthem that cheers on the university's athletic teams.
