Found One!

OK, so I haven’t updated this for a while... My bad, but I have very busy. In my opinion, I was treated very poorly by my Bank of America loan officer, Steve Erickson, so I switched banks. I guess 28 years of customer loyalty doesn’t count for squat anymore. Such is life. I shopped for a small bank, and found a winner in Liberty Bank (http://www.libertybankiowa.com/). I have been very impressed with the professionalism and friendliness of everyone I have encountered. By the way, all of this went on as my earnest money was put down on a great end-unit condo in Marion, Iowa. It has 3 bedrooms, 3 baths, a walk-out basement, a big deck, and a fireplace. It has passed the general inspection, radon and termite inspections with flying colors. I have a general contractor who is going to handle all of the necessary remodelling. All in all, everything is going very well. All I need is everything that is not on my list of ‘Stuff I Own’. Currently, that is a pretty short list. Entertainment center and television set. Rooms to Go (http://www.roomstogo.com/) and IKEA (http://www.ikea.com/) and I are going to become very, very good friends.
