While this long holiday weekend most often signifies the beginning of summer with the kids out of school, pools opening, picnics and BBQs with friends and family, and overall celebration, we must remember WHY we have this holiday. Memorial Day is here for us to remember the sacrifice made by men and women who have served our country in order for us to enjoy the freedom that is so important to Americans. So please remember to take a moment to thank our veterans this weekend, and every day.


Happy Memorial Day from The Rullo Team!

Memorial Day 2016

by The Rullo Team

It marks the first official weekend of summer.....Memorial Day weekend!!!  



 

After the harsh winter and a "barely there" spring, it's a great feeling having summer actually arrive on time. 

This weekend is always so much fun, but it's very important too.  Memorial Day is a time to remember and honor all those who have fought so courageously for our country and the freedom it represents. So in the midst of the family get together's and BBQ's and picnics, take time to remember and honor all of our Military and Veterans for all they have done and the sacrifices they have made.

Communities across Kane County have scheduled events honoring all who have served and are currently serving...

Staging Your Home to Sell this Spring in the Fox Valley!

by The Rullo Team

As we now progress from spring into summer can you guess what that means? It’s BUYING season! If you are looking to SELL its time to get your Fox Valley home ready with these great Staging Tips from the professionals at HGTV!


Open those curtains!! Instant brightness adds a lot to a showing. And if it is raining, make sure to turn on all of the lights.


Drop the dark bring out the bright colors!! Botanical colors and prints give rooms a cheerful feel. I know it was a LONG winter, so rejoice the spring weather and put away your furry winter blankets and replace with flower prints (Lavender, yellow, sage green and pale blue color are particularly nice!).


Candles are a must!! Enough said.


Clear your Counters!! Put away your toaster, coffee machine, and pretty much everything else except a nice bowl of fresh fruit. Buyers can be deterred by clutter.


Clean Clean Clean….and then clean a little more!! Get your scrub brush out because it is time to get your home looking squeaky clean. A home that sparkles and is decluttered portrays a home as airy and spacious.


And don’t forget to Clean your Floors and Walls!! A bucket of warm water with a few drops of mild soap and a sponge goes a long way and will clean off most wall marks and if you have some extra bad marks, grab a magic eraser cleaning pad.


Landscape!! Make the most of curb appeal! It might be time to invest in a landscaper, as a pristine yard goes a long way with potential buyers.
