Who Are the People In Your Neighborhood? Twins!
You know what they say.... there must be something in the water....
It seems that Belle Creek in Henderson, CO, is experiencing a bit of a baby boom. The ebb and flow of family creation will naturally include twins from time to time. But in a neighborhood of roughly 300 homes, 3 sets born within 6 months of one another seems like the plot of a sitcom!
I just love getting to know my neighbors better. It helps me to understand the needs of my real estate clients and it brings our community closer together.
That is why I choose to knock on doors rather than mail out my Quarterly Market Data Report for Belle Creek.
it was a gorgeous sunny Saturday afternoon- with a record high!- 2 weeks ago. I slathered on the sun block and set out.
First, I noticed that on 106th Place there was a young man struggling to hoist a crib (still in box) up his front steps. I stopped to chat as his adorable wife came out of the house to hand him a furniture strap to ease his load. Then I noticed a second crib still in the car.
Twins? You bet.
Then, something even funnier happened. Up on Dayton Way, a front door was open so that a family could enjoy the fresh air. I called "hello!" and they welcomed me inside. There on the floor in their infant seats, napping away... Twins! One boy, one girl, about 3 months old. Mom and Dad were beaming as they told me that they were already sleeping through the night, and that 3 year old big sis was happy as a clam with her new siblings.
What a coincidence, I thought. Until I came upon the third set!
On the north end of Belle Creek Boulevard, a happy and exhausted set of parents have welcomed home their set just a few days before I came-a-knockin'.
