Thanksgiving Survival Brief

by The Rullo Team

This Thanksgiving will be different you tell yourself!  You’ve decided on the menu ahead of time, you have your guest list and what everyone is bringing, but no matter how well you plan, something always goes wrong.  So here are ten extra tips to help your Thanksgiving go smoothly.   


Coolers aren’t just for tailgating!

 Everyone knows that refrigerator real estate is precious closer and closer to the feast, and the day of…forget about it!  So, bring out the cooler support.  You can clear your fridge of all of those large jars of pickles and condiments!  You can basically but anything you will not be needing for thanksgiving in your cooler and forget about it until after the big day.  If you live in colder climates you can store the cooler outside, away from all the ruckus of relatives.  The cooler isn’t just for storing space hogging jars of pickles though.  For instance, you could use it to brine your Turkey over night (just make sure there is plenty of ice!)  Or you could use it as a warming drawer…I mean it is insulated right?!  Line it with aluminum foil, add some folded towels and fill it with hot dishes as they come out of the oven.  

*NOTE* Use a little common sense…Don’t melt your cooler!


Pennies…Not just a useless form of currency!

 Pennies make great pie weights!…what’s a pie weight you ask?  Well, let me tell you.  Pie weights prevent your pie crust from rising, leaving you with an awkward bottom to your pie…just put a layer of tinfoil over your crust first, then fill it with pennies, then bake!  Boom, perfectly flat crust!


Aluminum foil!  One of Thanksgiving's MVPs

You can also use it as a Roasting Rack.  The point of a rack is to hold the bird above the pan so heat can circulate evenly, but who says it has to be made of wire?  If you don’t already have a store-bought rack you can make you’re own.  1. Crumple some sheets of foil into thick ropes and wrap them in coils on the bottom of the pan, that’s it.  Or you could go the green route and roast atop a bed of halved carrots, celery and onions.  


Ah the slow cooker.

 The only thing worst than lumpy mashed potatoes on thanksgiving is cold, gluey ones.  Keeping your spuds toasty while using the burners for other dishes is a piece of pie.  Butter your slow cooker, add some heavy cream to the potatoes, set the temp to low and then stir every hour or so.  Your potatoes will stay warm and silky s smooth!


Fat Separator…no not your belt.

The secret to great gravy is skimmed (not greasy) pan droppings.  If you don’t have a fat separator, simply pour your drippings into a large heatproof measuring cup and pop it in the freezer.  The drippings will cool and the fat will rise to the top and solidify, making it super easy to skim off with a spoon!


That thermos isn’t just for coffee.  

Put your gravy into a thermos… let sit until you’re ready to eat!  It’s that easy!


Local Salad Bar as Sous Chef

Ok this tip is going to be controversial, but it can literally save hours off of your prep time.  Go to your local market and pick up ingredients from the salad  bar that are already cleaned and ready to eat; chopped onions, trimmed beans, sliced bell peppers, hardboiled eggs, crumbled bacon…  It will save you a lot of work!…and you don’t have to tell anyone why you look less frantic this year, simply pour yourself a glass of wine and wait for the turkey.


Use your cabinets as cook book stands!

 If your recipes look anything like mine, they are covered in splashes and spills, the letters are barely visible at this point.  It’s a pain to keep flipping back and forth as well. Solution:  Print copies and tape them to your cabinets.  Keep them at eye level around your kitchen.  You’ve just minimized your kitchen clutter and can now  follow directions hands free, take notes on the fly; you could even arrange them in order of your cooking prep!  This is my favorite tip!


Bring that Turkey back from the dead!

Oops, did you over cook the Turkey?  Before glumly handing out the dried out bird  your guests, drizzle a little warm chicken broth over the meat.  It’ll moisten and add flavor.  This also helps for slices that have gone from room temp to cold!  


Deflect your guests

…in a nice way.  A busy kitchen is the worst when your trying to cook 8 things at once in order to eat on time, as to not disappoint your mother in-law.  So, give your guests jobs…outside of the kitchen.  Have a wine table with wine glasses and bottles as well as carafes of water.  Ask them to open the wine, pour the glasses, set the table, hang the coats, heard the kids.  Anything really, as long as they stay out of the kitchen!

Selling Your Fox Valley Home During The Holidays

by The Rullo Team

The holiday season is upon us! November through January is often misconstrued at the worst time to Sell a Home.  Sure, the thought of Selling your Home during the Holidays doesn’t sound like the most wonderful thing on your list, but we're here to tell you that Selling your Home during the holidays DOES HAVE QUITE A FEW ADVANTAGES!  Holiday Home Buyers are usually more serious about buying - and buying now, and there is a lot Less Competition...obviously a HUGE plus! So before you make any definitive decisions, decide if you need to sell now, and if the answer is YES...then COMMIT 100%!  Jump into some holiday apparel, deck the halls and follow these Tips For Selling Your Home During The Holidays

Deck the halls…but don’t get all ‘Elf’ on us, more like Ron Burgundy, “STAY CLASSY…” 

Homes often look their best during the holidays, but make sure you don’t overdo it.  Decorations too large or simply too many can distract Home Buyers.  Keep decorations simple, elegant and free of personal and religious affiliations. You want your potential home buyers to picture themselves living in the home. If you have YOUR personal items, photos, or affiliations filling the home, it's tough for a buyer to picture their things filling that spot.

Hire a Reliable Real Estate Team.
This is one of the Most Important aspects of your Home don't take it lightly! You need a Real Estate Team that will work hard for you and won't vanish during Thanksgiving, Christmas or New Year's.  Friends and family are good resources for this, chances are they  know someone who has moved recently, or knows a great realtor in town.  Get a recommendation of someone who will go above and beyond to get your HOME SOLD.  Isn’t that what you want?  This will ease your stress and ensure you enjoy the Holidays just as much as last year, when you were not selling a house. Even with a recommendation, make sure you check them out because your Home is your Greatest Investment and you want to put that investment in the hands of the RULLO TEAM!

Seek Motivated Buyers.
Anyone house hunting during the holidays most likely has a good reason for doing so. Work with your Real Estate Team to target buyers on a deadline, including people relocating for jobs in your area, investors on tax deadlinescollege students and staff, and military personnel.

Price to Sell. I know you’ve heard this before…but seriously, Price to Sell!
This is one of the most important any time of the year, and another reason why you need an experienced Real Estate Team on your side. A home needs to be priced for the local market, in addition to the Homes Value, time of year and an experienced, knowledgable team of professionals know exactly where & how to price your home to get Top Dollar....while still selling your home in the shortest amount of time!  An experienced agent also knows that during the holidays that cheerful & loving emotions add to a positive sales process...also resulting in a higher sales price when a home buyer finds the perfect home for them.

Curb Appeal.
Autumn rolls around and the trees start to lose their leaves, so maintaining the exterior of your home becomes even more important, You need to maintain the exterior of your home and keep your yard tidy.  Also remember that bare trees equal a more exposed home, so touch up the paint, make necessary repairs, clean the gutters and make sure your windows sparkle!  This is also another time where elegant decorations can make your home even more inviting.   Keep safety in mind as well; make sure stairs and walkways are free of snow, ice and leaves.

High Quality Real Estate Photos.
It’s well known that most people start their home search online.....over 88%!  This is even more the case when the weather starts to get colder.  No one wants to drive or walk around in the cold, they’d rather sip some hot cocoa and search from the comforts of their a Snuggie on the couch! So making a good first impression on the internet is critical and that means using lots of beautiful high-quality photos of your home. Another reason to find an experienced Real Estate Team. These teams will have a REAL ESTATE PHOTOGRAPHER,. Why is this important? Because a RE Photographer KNOWS HOW TO PHOTOGRAPH HOMES! They know the perfect angles, lighting, natural lighting, walk-ways, showcasing the best & largest angles of the rooms, and more. NOTHING is worse than BAD Real Estate Photos. THEY CAN & WILL lose you home buyers. Finding the right Real Estate Team, who is using the best RE Photographer, is truly so important. The Rullo Team uses ONLY REAL ESTATE PHOTOGRAPHERS & VIDEOGRAPHERS. We know the importance of the best photos and will always go above and beyond to showcase our clients homes the BEST way possible.  

Give a Great Video Presentation.
There will be less foot traffic during the holidays, so presenting a Beautiful Video Tour is key!

Keep your Home cozy!
Your home needs to be comfy cozy and inviting during any Open House or Showing.  Turn up that heat (not too high), or put a fire in the fireplace or wood-burning stove, play some soft music and have a plate of homemade holiday treats on the table!  Encourage buyers to spend more time in your home, giving them even more time to admire and imagine themselves living there!

Don’t be a Scrooge…be the "holiday angel" in disguise!
Ok, so some Mortgage Lenders are the scrooges these days, however,  if you've got the means, consider offering a home loan to a serious buyer. You could get a great return on your investment!

Lastly, Relax — the New Year is around the corner.
Holidays are stressful enough; gifts to buy, dinners to prepare, relatives, and the ultimate Christmas party… just take a deep breath, and a moment to remind yourself that if you decide not to sell this winter…there's always next year, which by now, will only be a few days away!

Fall Lawn Care

by The Rullo Team

Get outside and enjoy this beautiful fall weather and have a great looking yard in the spring! 

Below are a couple of things you can do now before the snow flies.



Contrary to popular opinion, fall is the best time of the year for lawn care. Fertilization, weed and thatch control, establishment of new lawns, and renovation of poor quality lawns should be done over the next few weeks.  Now is the time to prepare so that you start next spring with a healthy lawn. 

  • Keep mowing until your lawn stops growing.  Don’t mow too short, if anything, leave it a little bit long.
  • Don’t starve your lawn. If you live in the northern U.S., fertilize one more time around Thanksgiving.
  • Kill broadleaf weeds like dandelions and ground ivy. Time your herbicide application around the first time there is frost in your area or when the temperature dips to at least 40°F overnight.



“When fall is in the air, it’s time to put spring in the ground”.  Autumn is the time to plant spring flowering bulbs.  Bulb experts usually recommend planting bulbs when the nighttime temps drop into the low 50’s or 40’s for two weeks, although you can even plant in December as long as you can still dig


  • Choose a spot where the soil drains well. 
  • Spring-flowering bulbs like sun, but you can plant them under trees that will still be bare when the flowers bloom. 
  • The rule of thumb is the planting hole should be about 3 times the length of the bulb; dig individual holes or a wider hole that can hold a number of bulbs. 
  • Plant them pointy side up

Sure, it is delayed gratification, but the appearance of flowers and a beautiful lawn at the end of a bleak winter will be worth the wait.

Do you really need to use an experienced Real Estate Team to SELL YOUR HOME?  If you want to Sell your Home quickly and for the most amount of money...we'd suggest using an experienced Real Estate Team. But we'll let you make that decision once you've read these 6 reasons why we think you should: 

1. They Will Always Evaluate Your Property Immediately.

As an experienced Real Estate Team in the Fox Valley, one of the things we are most proud of is being able to evaluate your property quickly. Buying & Selling Homes in the Fox Valley for 20+ years has given us an intimate knowledge of the area and we are always working in the area so we are constantly staying updated on the homes, and neighborhoods. That means we know the comparable properties nearby and understand what simply needs to be done before a home can be put on the market in order for it to garner the BEST possible sales price.


2. They’ll Price the Property Competitively & Appropriately

Pricing the home might seem like a minor part of the selling process, but it is, and can be, the single most important part of the sale itself. We’ve seen plenty of homes priced too high that stay on the market for months, and conversely, we’ve seen homes priced too low that get scooped up quickly but won’t bring in the sellers as much as they deserve. Knowing the market and where to price a home for the seller takes experience and local market knowledge....we have both. 


3. They’ll Already Have a List of Potential Buyers in Mind

We will send notifications to buyers of your listing, and actively match buyers to your home via our state-of-the-art computer programs and client database. We also call within the real estate community to see if they have buyers looking for your type of home. When you've been a Top Real Estate Team in this market as long as we have been, you always have people who are looking to Buy and that is GREAT for your Home Seller because they are already starting their Home Sale with potential Buyers in the "wings" so to speak. 


4. They Can Walk You Through the Selling Process

If you’re Selling Your First Home, or just the first in many years, the selling process may seem a little overwhelming. An experienced Real Estate Team takes the anxiety out of the sale by detailing the process, walking you through the steps and taking care of ALL the details for you! Therefore we ELIMINATE the stress of Selling Your Home.


5. They Will Be Well Informed & Great Communicators When Selling the Home

When showing a home, most Home Sellers won’t be present. Prospective buyers will communicate directly with the Real Estate Team, which is why it is so important that your realtor is experienced, calm and professional. The Best Real Estate Teams will be well informed about your home, the neighbornood, and be able to answer any questions the buyers might have.


6. They’ll be Able to Handle Tough Negotiations

One area that is often missed when people think about hiring a Real Estate Team is "Negotiation". A major bonus of working with an Experienced Real Estate Team when selling your home is having them handle the tough negotiations....and there is almost always a "tough negotiation".  When going back and forth with a buyer, your Real Estate Team should be prepared to handle any situation and respond in the best way that is financially best for you...the Home Seller, without driving away the Home Buyer.  


There is an Art to Selling a Home, it is why experienced Top Real Estate Teams go through the initial training and the years of continued training to be Top in their area.  Don't SELL yourself short!  For many of us our Home is our largest investment, don't let an inexperienced person take charge of something of this magnitude. Rely on the EXPERTS....The Rullo Team.

St. Charles IL & Oswego IL: Best Places To Live In Illinois

by The Rullo Team

Small cities are currently experiencing a growth rate twice that of New York, Los Angeles and Chicago and nearly 10 percent faster than the national rate since 2000.

It's easy to understand the appeal of small towns; closer-communities, less competition in the work place, shorter commutes, not to mention an actual backyard, and from a purely financial standpoint, living in small cities can create a sense of greater wealth due to a lower cost of living. 

 "According to the Economic Policy Institute, a two-parent, two-child family would need to earn $49,114 a year “to secure an adequate but modest living standard” in Morristown, Tenn., compared with $106,493 in Washington. So even with a lighter wallet, a family or soloist can enjoy a comparable, or even better, quality of life for much less in a cozy place like Morristown." -Richie Bernando For WalletHUb

This promoted the personal finance website WalletHub to conduct an in-depth analysis of 2015’s Best & Worst Small Cities in America, in order to identify small cities where Americans enjoy a good quality of life and affordable living costs.  They analyzed and compared 1,268 US Cities with populations between 25,000 and 100,000, based on 22 key metrics like, housing costs, Quality of Schools, Restaurants per capita, and many more.  They then ranked cities to determine the Best and the Worst Cities, and St. Charles and Oswego both made the list of Top 25 Small Towns to Live in Illinois!
