There has been great debate and publicity surrounding the “Over The River” project. The world famous Cristo is planning on draping the Arkansas River with approx 6 miles of fabric. The debates include things like environmental concerns, traffic, employment, wildlife, local established business, new business and general bother to the city. Endorsements in favor of the Cristo “Over the River” project are coming in but the silence of those not endorsing the project is just about as loud. If the project is as successful as planners (0 comments)
To commit to anything, you must be ready, willing and able. If these things are not in place you really aren’t committed to your goal. Let’s talk about buying a house. 1) Are you ready? Tell your REALTOR when you would like to accomplish buying a house. If you need to move right away, you are 1/2 packed and a new job or situation is waiting – you are ready. Same goes with selling you house. Prove to your agent and buyers you want to move. 2) (6 comments)

Sellers are proudly showing off drawer pulls, ceiling fans, a blooming bush or other details of special attention. Think about it, have you ever purchased a house because of the decorative shelf in a bedroom? Probably not. Details help impress potential buyers, not always in a good way. What if the buyer doesn’t want to do yard (10 comments)

As the end of 2011 approaches I thought I’d take this time to thank all of you. It’s been a year of transformation for me and for some of you as well. I suppose 2011 will go down in history as a difficult year or at least a transforming one. And maybe a little more challenging to find things to be thankful for.
One of the good things about 2011 was reconnecting with old friends. As many of you know I’ve embraced “Social Media.” Tools like Facebook have united me with new friends but plenty of old (1 comments)

colorado: Real Estate Deals Are About the Timing - 10/19/11 11:07 PM
It’s all about “the right deal at the right time.” We’ve all heard this before, right? With supply and demand being out of balance for the last few years it’s been about the “right deal.” Buyers want something for nothing of course and sellers think they have gold in their property, but when the two come together it is the “right deal.”
