    Special Follow-up: The CU Real Estate Market with Mark Waldhoff

    in Politics

    Mark Waldhoff and team are not only passionate about helping you achieve your real estate goals, but also strive to stay 2 steps ahead of the other Realtors in Champaign.  To learn more about Mark, visit www.champaignexperts.com. 

    Today, we talk to Mark about a recent May 5th Crain's Chicago article 'Why Champaign homeowners are such a depressed bunch'.  In that article, Mark Waldhoff was intereviewed and quoted.  The theme of the article was negative for Champaign-Urbana, but the underlying message (that CU home values have not rebounded as well as the rest of the country) has come into question. 

    When it comes to topics like this, it is always great to talk to an industry expert.   In this interview, we will get Mark's opionion on the overall market, what factors he considers important, and whether or not he agrees with the premise of the article.

    Thanks for listening!

    Be Interesting, and get noticed

    in Motivation

    One of the key ways of standing out in our overcrowded world is by being interesting. Let us face it, most people are not interesting. Spend a few minutes with them - and you're done. On the contrary, don’t you love spending time with people who make you laugh, make you smile and are generally buoyant? These people are generally liked because they are fun to be around. How can you be just that – be that person who others would want to spend their time with?

    This show will give you useful tips on how to be more interesting.

    Congressman Rodney Davis 04/18/13

    in Politics

    Hosts: Eric Bussell(@ericbussell) and Angie Patton (@angiepatton2). 
    Show discussion: HERE
    Date: 4/18/13
    Time: 6:30pm (30 minutes). 
    One thing that we admire about Congressman Rodney Davis is that he is not afraid to address the tough questions head-on.  
    We look forward to getting an update from the freshman congressman who represents IL-13 and who has made quite a splash after beating Dr. David Gill in a close election in one of the country's most visible battleground districts.  
    He has been making headlines and has been recognized for taking immediate steps to reach across party lines and build bipartisan coalitions.  Also, Roll Call just reported that he raised more than $400k in his first full-funding quarter in Congress. 
    Please join us as we look forward to hearing from Congressman Rodney Davis.  
    Update: Schedule update from 6pm to 6:30pm to accomodate air delays due to weather. 
    1) What number do I call for my interview and when should I call in?  Call (347) 843-4726 15 minutes before the start of your scheduled interview. 
    2) Can listeners call in?  Not unless we mention it in promotion or on the air.  Otherwise, we do not answer calls.   We will monitor the show discussion forum at halfwayinteresting.com and you can send a message to the show host or co-host at their twitter handles.  Keep in mind that during the interview, it is not also possible to respond in real time.
