        Three Safety Strategies for Using a Portable Generator

        We’re going to wrap up with a few words about something many of us use, every summer – and that is? The portable generator.

        Sure, the summer heat generates thunderstorms, they sweep through your area. The lights start to flicker. And then – the power goes out. Happens all the time.

        Selling Your Home Safely

        We’ve talked a lot about how to keep your home free from hazards – so that you and everyone else can avoid accidents.

        Sometimes transactions go smoothly. I wish they all did! But sometimes they don’t. The buyer and seller might disagree on something big, or small. And if they really dig in…that one issue could become a deal-killer.

        It could be anything.
