Rachel Sheller Client recommendation.

“Rachel is amazing! Our situation was a bit tricky as we were selling two condos and searching for a home that would accommodate a separate living space to allow Grandma to move in with us. That meant that Rachel had to deal with three different and strong personalities. Rachel was honest and upfront about what to expect with the sale of our condos. We really felt like we knew what was happening each step of the way. We are so happy to be in our new home and beyond thankful to Rachel for getting us here.”

Thank you Chris & Tina. It truly is my honor an privilege to serve you and your family. I’m grateful for the opportunity.

IT’S A GOOD LIFE!!

Find Your Best Workout. Live Your Best Life.

Image result for workout

Many people see exercise as a necessary evil that can be difficult to keep up, but it doesn’t have to be that way. Explore these ways to break a sweat and transform the hassle into a hobby.

Weight training
If you hate running but love to feel the burn, weight training might be your best workout. Consider your physical limits, especially if you have previous injuries or restrictions. Then, start off slow. Lift free weights, use machines to target specific muscle groups, or wear ankle weights when you go for a walk.

Cardio exercise
If getting your heart rate up is your goal, then cardio might be the right route for you. Find a high-energy playlist and hit the streets or treadmill for a jog. Zumba classes, swimming and basketball are all high-energy cardio exercises that are fun, too. Feeling the “runner’s high” after a workout is a good sign that cardio might be for you.

Stretching and resistance training
Yoga, pilates and stretching exercises can create lean muscles and increase flexibility. These low-impact forms of exercise are ideal for those who want or need a slower workout. Setting goals like touching your toes, hitting that yoga pose perfectly, or completing the splits can give you something to focus on during your workout.

How To Prevent Mold In Your Home

Image result for spring cleaning

As the seasons change, spring cleaning is an excellent time to address any places in your home that could be breeding grounds for mold. It’s important to keep potential problem-areas dry, eliminate anything that blocks airflow, and keep exterior doors and windows shut when running the air conditioner.

Mold thrives in humidity, so thoroughly check for dampness near sump pumps, basement doors, windows, and hot water tanks. Moving furniture away from registers allows air to circulate and helps eliminate condensation. Standing water is a major offender, so be sure to check drip pans under your refrigerator and your AC unit, and dry up any puddles before they become a problem.

If your home is prone to high humidity, consider investing in a dehumidifier. You can purchase a whole-house dehumidifier or portable ones for specific rooms. If possible, vent bathrooms to the outside to reduce humidity from hot showers. If you suspect mold in your home but haven’t found the source or need help removing it, contact a qualified professional to help you solve the problem.

How To Be A Tourist In Your Hometown

Image result for tourist

Spring is an ideal season for adventure seekers to hit the road or board planes bound for exotic destinations. If you’re staying put, satiate your inner travel bug by exploring your hometown with fresh eyes.

Snag a night away. Booking a hotel room or an Airbnb can help you experience your city like a tourist. Eat at a restaurant you’ve never been to before, and challenge yourself to start conversations with servers, bartenders or fellow patrons. Ask people what they enjoy most about your city – you may be surprised by what you learn.

Become your city’s biggest fan. Think about the food, landmarks and outdoor activities your city is known for, and make a plan to experience them yourself. Even if they feel clichéd, your city’s main attractions are worth trying at least once, and they may make you a bigger champion of your hometown.

Venture out with a camera. Looking through the lens of a camera can shift your perspective on even the most familiar places. Explore a part of town on foot, looking for new details and unique angles to capture. Try recreating photos you’ve seen online, or search for a great vantage point to take a panoramic shot at sunset.
