REAL ESTATE INSIGHTS, from SUZANNE
Spring is almost here – Are you ready?
The Spring market is upon us and many people will be thinking about buying a new home or improving the one they live in! In this season of renewal, there are many steps you can take to improving the quality of life in your home, whether it be to sell it to be happier in it. You want your home to have a certain aura about it when people enter. One way to crate positive energy in your home is the ancient Chinese art of Feng Shui. Feng Shui is one of the Five Arts of Chinese Metaphysics, classified as physiognomy (observation of appearances through formulas and calculations). The Feng Shui practice discusses architecture in terms of “invisible forces” that bind the universe, earth, and humanity together, known as qi, according to Wikipedia.
I have been studying this art over the past year and have started applying the principles in my home and homes that I list for sale. Feng Shui believes that all objects contain energy and to bring out the out the positive energy there must be balance between the five natural elements: fire, earth, metal, water, air, space, and wood — each are distinguished by a characteristic shape, color, texture and set of attributes. Feng Shui identifies spaces which are distorted, and readjusts the energy flow to promote health, happiness, and abundance.
The flow of energy starts at the main entrance and follows a clock wise circle. Water is the element of the entrance of the home and deep blue and black are the main colors. Mirrors are also a representation of water and it is good to decorate with curvy or wavy shapes.
As we have discussed in the past, clutter is a huge source of negative energy in a home. Clutter has been known to cause anxiety and depression. Once your home has been organized it easy to apply some basic Feng Shui principles to improve the positive energy flow of your home. If you are interested in learning more, I have a Feng Shui Facebook Group with a new topic every week! Feel free to join Feng Shui Friday at https://www.facebook.com/groups/236021543964703/
What will you be doing to renew your home this Spring? I’d love to hear your ideas!

Own a Small Business ? Here’s How to Keep!
When the unexpected happens, it’s important to protect your business with insurance coverage tailored to your specific industry.
Tips from Troy McAuliffe, Your State Farm Insurance Agent
Even small businesses can run into major problems from time to time. When the unexpected happens, it’s important to protect your investment with insurance that covers the needs and challenges of your business. That’s why many small business owners purchase a business owners policy, a type of insurance that can provide a package policy which includes property and liability coverage’s tailored for a small business.
Since every business is different, this coverage can easily be tailored to your specific needs. The advantage of a business owner’s policy is that it can combine protection for the different property and liability risks of your industry into one convenient package. For instance, a landlord needs to protect different assets than a computer repair business.
A wide range of businesses and contractors can benefit from such a policy, from medical offices to retail shops and beyond. Even home services contractors (such as locksmiths and plumbers) can benefit from a business owner’s policy.
A business owner’s policy can help protect:
- Accounts receivable
- Computer property
- Equipment breakdown
- Loss of income
- Seasonal coverage needs
Additionally, business owner’s policies can include industry-specific coverage, such as:
- Data compromise and identity restoration
- Backup of sewer and drain
- Employee dishonesty
- Loss of income due to utility interruption
Not sure if your business could benefit from a business owner’s policy? Contact me – Troy McAuliffe – to learn more about the coverage’s available for your particular industry and find out how a business owner’s policy can help protect the business you’ve worked to build.
