Four Ways To Make
Outpatient Surgery Safer
Simply by its nature, outpatient surgery sounds like it would be less invasive and safer than procedures that require overnight care in the hospital. However, unintended consequences can happen. Here are tips for keeping yourself safe and healthy during outpatient surgery.
  1. Select your surgeon carefully. Even if your procedure seems minor, your doctor should be board certified in the field that is relevant to your condition, and his or her certifications should be up-to-date.

    Also, ask how many similar operations he or she has performed in the past year, and see how this compares to peers. Check a surgeon rating website such as to find out how your surgeon ranks.

  2. Disclose all current medications and supplements. Your surgeon and anesthesiologist need to know about every prescription and OTC medication and supplement you are taking, as some can cause complications during and after surgery. Have this conversation well in advance of your procedure, because you may need to stop taking certain meds two weeks or more before the operation.

  3. Prepare in advance. Put your body in the best possible condition by eating well, getting enough sleep and exercising regularly. Stop smoking and drinking prior to your surgery. And don’t let anxiety get the best of you. Deep breathing (, positive thinking, and meditation help put you in the right state of mind.

  4. Ask all questions. Make sure you fully understand your procedure and what you can expect afterward. Have a plan for your recovery, and make arrangements ahead of time if you need to hire human help or implement mobility and dietary changes in your life.

What Car Dealers Don’t
Want You To Know
Car salespeople have a reputation for sneaky sales tactics – and rightfully so! There are deceitful tricks throughout the entire car-buying process, so it is always best if you know what to watch out for before stepping foot on the car lot.
  • You hold the power. Buyers used to walk into car buying blind, but today there is a lot of information online to inform you before you purchase. Do your research in advance and have a general idea about what you want to buy and how much it should cost with websites like,, and

    And, if you know what you want to buy, don’t be persuaded by dealers to upgrade or try something else if it’s not what you want.

  • Negotiating does not end with the price. You might want to breathe a sigh of relief once you’ve agreed on a price, but don’t let your guard down yet. Car dealers make a commission on extended warranties and extra features like sealants and fabric protectants – features you either don’t need or can get a better deal for elsewhere – so just say no.

  • Don’t fall for the “today only” price pitch. These high-pressure tactics are designed to force you into a decision before you are ready. Very rarely is a price available only today. Always take your time when making a big decision like buying a car.

A Heartfelt Message To My Special Clients and Friends…
I want to share a little secret with you. I don’t spend my time cold calling or pestering people for business. Instead, I focus 110% of my efforts on giving such outstanding service that people naturally think of me when a friend, neighbor or family member needs a caring and competent REALTOR®.

I would like to take a moment to acknowledge and thank a few of the special people in my life who’ve helped build my business with their enduring support and referrals. I couldn’t do it without you!

Thank you to good friend, Craig Rozen, who refered his son and wife to me to buyer a new home. We are excited to be under contract and have their present home in the Central Corridor for lease. I love working with friends and their families.
Fun Facts and Laughs

DIY Pest Control . . .

Before you call in a top-dollar professional to handle your pest invasion problem, try one of these cheaper options:
  • If you have ants, make a spray of vinegar and water (one part vinegar to one part water). Spray at their entrance into the house, whether it’s at a door, window, or baseboard. Spray their trail completely.
  • Make homemade ant bait with a mixture of Borax and sugar. Place the mix in small containers. If sugar doesn’t work, mix Borax with something fatty or oily.
  • If gnats are a problem, let soil in indoor plants dry out completely. This kills any larvae that are nested there.

Real Estate Q & A . . .
Q.  How can I net more money selling my own home?
A.   Here are three important tips:
  • Set the right price from the start. Homes that sell for the most money are priced right when they go on the market.
  • Create a comprehensive plan to market your home. You can target buyers though flyers and open houses, but your home should be listed in the official MLS database by a REALTOR® so more buyers see it and you get a price closer to what you’re asking.
  • Hire an experienced Home Marketing Expert. A REALTOR® who knows how to effectively market your home can net you more money. Plus, they can save you time by assisting you with every aspect of the sale, from pricing your home to coordinating the closing process.
You can learn about these tips and more in my Free Consumer Report called “7 Insider Tips To Net More Money Selling Your Own Home.” Ask me for a copy and I’ll send it right over.
