Q: What does it take for change to take place? A: A Burning desire.   Leave a comment

real estate for sale in waukesha county,fred rogers mr rogers,ronald reagan,harry houdini,green bay packers,vince lombardiJanuary 1st and people are calling me and asking me if I am ready to go back to work next week? Next week? I am already working on it. Someone asked mereal estate for sale in waukesha county,fred rogers mr rogers,ronald reagan,harry houdini,green bay packers,vince lombardi if I see great change in 2010 and I was fast to remind them that the change has to first start in me. My beliefs, my core beliefs, my vision, my goals, my passion, my risks; it all starts with me. It starts with a burning desire to make a difference; starting with me. As the year starts I think of some role models that will allow me to reflect at times and see change in myself, the life around me, and real estate for sale in Waukesha County.

real estate for sale in waukesha county,fred rogers mr rogers,ronald reagan,harry houdini,green bay packers,vince lombardiBeing a Wisconsinite and being one of the Green Bay Packers fan I have a tendency to dwell at timesreal estate for sale in waukesha county,fred rogers mr rogers,ronald reagan,harry houdini,green bay packers,vince lombardi about a great coach we had named Vince Lombardi. Coach Lombardi knew what it would take for change; it started with sacrifice, determination, and a burning desire to not be just good at your game, but to be great at your game. It’s fair to say he achieved that! Hard work and dedication pays off; his team would have told you that!

“I firmly believe that any man’s finest hour, the greatest fulfillment of all that he holds dear, is that moment when he has worked his heart out in a good cause and lies exhausted on the field of battle – victorious”  Vince Lombardi

real estate for sale in waukesha county,fred rogers mr rogers,ronald reagan,harry houdini,green bay packers,vince lombardiAnother famous resident from Appleton Wisconsin was Harry Houdini. Mr. Houdini set a precedence that many famous magicians today will tell you. He was a role model for never giving up, trying and trying again.real estate for sale in waukesha county,fred rogers mr rogers,ronald reagan,harry houdini,green bay packers,vince lombardi He would not give up; even to the end. It goes to show you that when someone tells you you can’t do something maybe it can just make it that much stronger of a conviction to succeed and taste the fruits of your hard work and labor. There are times you have to stand out of the box and take an outside view looking in.

“It is still an open question, however, as to what extent exposure really injures a performer.”  Harry Houdini

It really does not matter what political party you may be part of today; we live in a great country that allows us to make that decision. I did real estate for sale in waukesha county,fred rogers mr rogers,ronald reagan,harry houdini,green bay packers,vince lombardihave a great admiration for Ronald Reagan. He was polite, he was focused, and he knew in his heart he had to take risks, and he did. I admire anyone that can stand up and say no. I hope when I pass away I can be remembered for just being a decent man. I admired him.

“I know in my heart that man is good. That what is right will always eventually triumph. And there’s purpose and worth to each and every life.” Ronald Reagan

 

     But in these times I really have a chance to take a step back and reflect on areal estate for sale in waukesha county,fred rogers mr rogers,ronald reagan,harry houdini,green bay packers,vince lombardi Presbyterian minister named Fred Rogers ( Mr. Rogers) that one day said he did not like what he saw. He had the guts to say “I don’t like the direction kids are having to see today and I can make a difference. I can make a difference in many lives and I am going to. Mr. Rogers set his goals his way in a very unselfish manner. He always would put others first. He proved that. I wish the world had more people like him. He made a difference.

“How sad it is that we give up on people who are just like us.” Fred Rogers

Pewaukee,Pewaukee Lake,the history of Waukesha Beach,and the Pewaukee real estate market   Leave a comment

Driving along the beach front looking out at Pewaukee Lake you wouldn’t think of the history and activity that existed there at one point. It wasn’t too long ago that we could always congregate at Calvanos for a Pewaukee Lake,Waukesha,Waukesha Beach,Pewaukee real estateMonday night open music party, at least from what I can recollect. Now all Pewaukee Lake,Waukesha,Waukesha Beach,Pewaukee real estatethat is gone and there is a magnificent board walk of buildings in the whole streets place. prior to that, it was a simple life and enjoyment, trolley cars, picnics, and eventually an amusement park. That is all gone now and the only thing that is certain in ones eyes is the same magnificent Pewaukee Lake. My grandmother used to tell me that everyone Pewaukee Lake,Waukesha,Waukesha Beach,Pewaukee real estatein Waukesha would come out and spend the day and evening at Waukesha beach. The name was conceived by two businessmen that purchased a parcel in 1893. P.J. Buckley and T.E. Ryan purchased a portion of land along the southern side of Pewaukee Lake. The two named their new plot Waukesha Beach.

Right around the turn of the new century, Foster C. Phelps, owner of a Waukesha resort hotel and mayor of the City, purchased Waukesha Beach. In the beginning, Waukesha Beach was a nice, calm place to go and relax a bit. Visitors could take a leisurely stroll along the beachfront or go diving from an enormous platform. Then, in 1910, the fate of the Beach changed as a small roller coaster, called the Figure 8, was constructed. The ride was immensely popular,Pewaukee Lake,Waukesha,Waukesha Beach,Pewaukee real estate drawing crowds in ever growing numbers, and in turn causing an explosion of activity. All kinds of rides, concession stands, and games began to appear.  More boats began to make stops at Waukesha Beach, and trolley lines began to arrive with visitors on a daily basis. Two new roller coasters were added,and many other amusements awaited visitors, as Waukesha Beach. Time, and the economy had it’s way with Waukesha beach and now what stands a test of time is just that Waukesha Beach at Pewaukee Lake.

I know Waukesha, and I know Pewaukee; if you would like a Waukesha County relocation package, are interested in buying a home in Pewaukee or selling a home in Pewaukee, questions about short sales in Pewaukee or Waukesha, Commercial and Investment real estate in Waukesha County, or just have questions just call or email me.
