Lisa Berg: Real Estate Is A Dream Job Not many people dream of selling homes. But Lisa Berg did. “It’s been a lifelong dream,” she says. “I like working with people. And I like homes.” She feels lucky to have landed with the Rauland Agency. “It’s a team atmosphere,” she said. “I love it here. It’s not cut throat. It’s like a family.” That teamwork came into play when she was doing a walk-through on a home that had been abandoned for awhile. The walk-through was with one of the Rauland agents who had taken Lisa under her wing. “It was a hot summer day. We were in our nice clothes,” she said. Then she smiled, recalling the incident.

“And there we were sweeping up bugs!” Lisa told the story to point out that the real estate business isn’t always glamorous — but it’s a lot easier when you have a co-worker helping you find your way. That’s the way it’s done at Rauland, she said. And lending a helping hand is what Lisa does with her clients, too. “I’m very passionate about finding them the right home for their needs,” she said. Asked about her qualities, Lisa said “I’m a good listener and very patient with people.” And, while she didn’t say it, it’s obvious from talking to Lisa that she has a natural warmth to her personality. “If I’m listing their home, I’ll be with them every step of the way,” she said. Lisa wants to find a fit between the client and a home in a way that goes beyond pure dollars and cents. “I like to find out their hobbies, what they like to do, what they want in their surroundings,” she said. “ I want to learn as much about the people as I can.” But there are the practical aspects as well. How much land they want. Whether they want to live in the country.

Lisa Berg (262) 729-7084 •

How many bedrooms, etc. And if it’s a seller it’s important to learn exactly how much they think their house is worth. “Sometimes people don’t realize they owe more on their house than it’s worth,” she said. And the agent can also help the seller determine if it’s the right time to sell. Lisa’s lived in Walworth for 8 year having moved here from Johnsburg, Ill., a community of 5,000 near McHenry. She received her real estate license in May of 2013 and started working at the Rauland Agency in June. Walworth County’s natural beauty is a great fit for Lisa. She loves to bike and hike. “And I just like being in nature,” she says. So Lisa knows the landscape — and that selling homes isn’t a 9-5 job, and that you sometimes need to sweep up a problem or two before the job is done.

Adding color to kitchen cabinets? Prep first Many homeowners dream of giving their kitchens a full-scale remodel. Though such a project can give a kitchen an entirely new look, that look does not come cheap. According to Remodeling magazine’s 2013 “Cost vs. Value Report,” homeowners can expect to spend more than $53,000 on a major kitchen remodel and recoup just below 70 percent of that cost at resale. So while the idea of a full-scale kitchen remodel might be a dream project, the cost of such an undertaking is beyond many homeowners’ budgets. But homeowners who cannot afford a full remodel can still give their kitchens a new look and can do so for relatively little money. Painting kitchen cabinets a new color or simply giving fading cabinets a fresh coat of paint can instantly add life to a kitchen, giving the room an entirely different feel without breaking the bank. The following are a few tips for homeowners planning to paint their kitchen cabinets. Assess your existing cabinets. Some cabinet materials, including wood and metal, can be repainted without much of a fuss. But other materials, including plastic laminate, are not so amenable to repainting, and

will likely require specialty paints. Homeowners with plastic laminate cabinets should first paint a spot or two with a sample paint, being careful to choose a spot that’s concealed. If the paint bonds well to the plastic laminate, then you can go forward and buy enough paint to redo all of the cabinets. If the paint does not take, consult a professional to find a paint that’s likely to be a better fit. Expect this process to be one of trial and error. Plan for ornate cabinets to take a little longer. Painting projects will go faster when cabinets have flat fronts, but they can take considerably longer when cabinets are unique and more detailed. If your cabinets are ornate, then factor this extra time into your schedule. Remove the doors and hardware. When painting cabinets, it’s best to essentially disassemble them, removing the doors, handles, knobs, latches, and any additional hardware. When removing hardware, be sure to set them aside in clearly marked plastic bags so it’s easier to reassemble the cabinets once the fresh coat of paint has dried. As doors are removed, number each door and its corresponding location,

much like products that require assembly are numbered at the factory. This makes it easier to reassemble and ensures the cabinets and their hinges will align properly once you have finished painting. Don’t paint dirty surfaces. Cabinet surfaces have likely collected their share of dirt, grease and grime over the years, so you want to clean these surfaces thoroughly before painting. Once surfaces have been cleaned, rinse them off and give them ample time to dry. Sand the surfaces. Once the surfaces have been cleaned and are completely dry, it’s time to start sanding them. Lightly sand the doors using a wood sanding block, working to create a firm base to which fresh paint can easily adhere. Areas that are most exposed to wear and tear may require some extra elbow grease, and some areas may be

especially flaky. When old paint is flaking off, this means the previous finish did not adhere very well to the surface, which is not necessarily uncommon in kitchens, where moisture and grease residue can make it harder for paint to adhere to the surface. In such instances, sand the flaky areas to the bare wood before spot-priming with a primer or sealer designed for areas with heavy staining. After all of the sanding is complete, vacuum the surfaces to ensure there is no leftover sanding dust before painting. Apply primer-sealer. Primer-sealer ensures the fresh paint will bond well to the surfaces, preventing conditions like flaking in the future. Paint the cabinets. After the primer-sealer has been applied, it’s time to paint the cabinets. Begin

with the inside edges and openings of the face frames, followed by the outer cabinet sides and then the front of the frames. Then move on to the cabinet doors and any drawer fronts you might be painting as well. Cabinets with more elaborate designs require closer attention to detail than flat cabinets. When painting, opt for thin coats, which dry more quickly and also create fewer visible brushstrokes. When applying multiple coats, allow the paint ample time to dry between coats. Four hours between coats is a good rule of thumb, and lightly resand all surfaces before applying the second and final coat of paint. Reassemble the cabinets. Once the final coat of paint has fully dried, carefully reassemble your cabinets and then enjoy the fresh and inexpensive new look that your freshly painted cabinets have created.

On the fence: protocol for property owners

Fences serve many purposes on a property and can even add visual appeal and value to a home. A fence can effectively delineate property borders, serve as a safety barrier and keep pets and children from wandering into the street. According to Zillow, an online real estate database, erecting a fence on a property in an area where fences are common usually increases the value of the home, putting it in line with similar properties nearby. However, this may only be the case if the fence is installed professionally and matches other fences throughout the neighborhood. Homeowners planning to install a fence should first secure a copy of their property surveys. A survey of the property is often conducted upon purchasing a home and/or when the land and home is being assessed. If you do not have a survey, you can hire a professional to conduct one. The survey will be handy because it clearly marks property lines. Depending on the local regulations, fences may need to be installed a certain number of inches or feet within the property line. Your municipality and building code office will be able to guide you further as to what is legal. Reputable fencing companies that work in the community should also have a good understanding of fencing regulations. A permit is typically needed to install a fence. Either your

contractor or you will need to apply for the permit before construction can begin. It is best to follow the law so that the fence can be installed in a manner that is consistent with local regulations and will not be subject to potentially costly removal. As a courtesy, speak with your neighbors about your fencing plans. The fence will separate your properties from one another, and your neighbors may have certain feelings about what they want to look

at. Even if a neighbor is not sharing the cost, it is a good idea to discuss fencing with your neighbors in an effort to reduce the likelihood of conflict down the road. Fences have been points of contention between neighbors, and you donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t want a previously amicable relationship to turn sour. In some instances, neighbors will be excited about the prospect of a fence and may want to share the cost. Fencing contractors may offer

discounts for multi-home installations, so it pays to inquire with the neighbors for that reason alone. Homes with pools may need fences as a safety precaution. Be sure they fit the protocol. They may need self-latching/locking gates to prevent entry to the yard. A fence can be a good investment, but homeowners must take the appropriate legal measures and consider their neighbors before erecting any fences.
