Home Q & A

Call agent to clarify vent extensions

My home was inspected, and the buyer wants me to extend the vents. There was no other explanation, so I don’t know where to turn. The agent has not been very active in helping us, and the inspector won’t return our calls. Can you provide some insight?

Home Q & A

Concerned about chemicals, women got educated and opened her own mattress store

Shopping for her daughter’s first big-girl mattress seven years ago, Diane Gercke couldn’t find anything that wasn’t based in petrochemicals. She researched the topic thoroughly, then drove to Colorado to buy an organic latex mattress. By then passionate about the topic, she opened her own natural bedding and furniture store called Eagles’ Rest in Lawrence in 2009. A second location opened in February at 5911 Johnson Drive in Merriam.
