Unless you're living with someone rent-free, you're paying a mortgage - either your mortgage or your landlord’s...

But in today's market, owning likely makes more sense than renting as both home values and interest rates are projected to climb.

#KCM #realestate #ownyourownhome
There are some people that have not purchased a home because they are uncomfortable taking on the obligation of a mortgage. Everyone should realize that, unless you are living with your parents rent free, you are paying a mortgage - either your mortgage or your landlord’s.

Freshen up your home without breaking the BANK! 
A sushi dinner. A Saturday night movie for four (with popcorn). A new pair of Nikes. They'll all cost you about $100. But wouldn't you rather put that money toward something that'll make you smile whenever you walk in the room? Take that 100 bucks and freshen up something in your home. It'll be money well spent.

It's all about the Credit Score when applying for a Mortgage!  #realestatetips #creditscore #homebuyingtips #buyingahome #gettingamortgage #mortgage  
 
A #creditscore  can affect your #mortgage  options. The higher your credit score, the more mortgage options you have. If you have a low score, it is going to be difficult to get good rates. Take a look to learn more: http://bit.ly/1toKYjm

Passionate about Real Estate and Serving my Clients Real Estate Needs!
Introduction
Hello and Welcome!  You found me...Bobette!  A native of Quincy I returned to my Hometown in 1993 after 9 years of moving around the country as a military wife. I must say I enjoyed the many places I lived, but there really is no place like HOME. I found my true calling after years of Retail Sales Management and became a licensed Real Estate Agent/Broker Associate in 1997.  They say if you Love what you do it does not feel like work.  I find that to be very true for me. I thrive on Helping Buyers and Sellers Negotiate the Complex Maze of both Buying and Selling. My career in Real Estate is Fun, Challenging, Rewarding and Every Day Brings Something New.  The Best Part is meeting and working with Awesome People along the way.  When I am not working you will find me with family, friends, reading a really good book,gardening, taking photos of old buildings, volunteering or indulging in my other Passion...Theatre!   
Bragging rights
I am a full time real estate agent working in Quincy, Illinois and the surrounding areas in Adams and Pike Counties. I have three beautiful girls and a wonderful husband named Brian. When I am not selling Real Estate you can most likely find me at the local Quincy Community Theatre. I am addicted to Theatre. I enjoy spending time with my family, friends and love meeting new people. I am a member of the Quincy Association of REALTORS®, Illinois Association of REALTORS®, and National Association of REALTORS®. I am a Past President of the Quincy Association Board of Directors. While President I established the Quincy Association of REALTORS® Community Grant. This grant allows our association to give back to area non-profit organizations who need assistance. I also served as Vice President, Treasurer and Director for the Association prior to being President. I continue to serve the Association on various standing committees. I completed Leadership Training Classes offered by the National Association of REALTORS® at the Illinois Association of REALTORS® in Springfield. I am currently serving on Professional Standards, Grievance, and two other working groups for the Illinois Association of REALTORS®. I was selected as REALTOR® of the Year for 2013/2014 by the Quincy Association of REALTORS®. I have received numerous sales awards from both the Quincy Association of REALTORS® as well as the Illinois Association of REALTORS®. Honored with the Century 21 Quality Service Award for 2013. I am both honored and blessed. I have the best clients and co-workers in the world.
