If you spent a few minutes reading my blog, you probably noticed that I don't write about myself very often, because I believe it is about our community, Colorado Springs, Academy School District 20, the neighborhoods, or our co-workers, friends, family, and neighbors. Well, my Active Rain profile is my chance to tell you my story.
Nancy Murray & Associates is a real estate business owned by me, Nancy Murray. I am the talking head of the group. I work closely with several agents that help me service the buyers that register on my website. I have a technology background from the Navy and have continued to expand on my knowledge, which has come in very handy when marketing a listing or blogging for future clients. Quite often I solicit the help of another buyer's agent to assist with showing homes and writing contracts. This allows the buyer to have the focus of a fully trained and qualified agent from the time they start to look at homes until we have a successful closing. All agents that work with me, agree with my business philosophy that it is about the needs and desires of the clients and it will be a win - win for everyone at the closing table.
I received my real estate license in January 2006, after retiring from the Navy as a Commander (O5) and immediately started working under the Keller Williams umbrella. I have truly been "Kellerized." I love the company and everything it believes. With my military background, it was important that where I hung my hat continued with the teaming philosophy of helping others to succeed. I also wanted to build a business, but not at the expense of my wonderful family life. That is the model of Keller Williams.
I decided from day one to focus on helping families moving into Academy School District 20. Why? Well when I was transferring to Peterson Air Force Base in 2002, everyone at the base told my husband and I, that we need to live in Academy School District 20, "that was the best school district in the area." Not knowing much about the area, of course, that is where we focused at the time, and with no regrets. It proved to be the right decision.
Academy School District 20 homes maintain their values better than the other neighboring districts. (Check out our Housing Analysis by School District ) Focusing on Academy School District 20 proved to be a very successful strategy. This is where we live and where our boys go to school. We know the neighborhoods and the schools. Many of the agents that assist me also live in Academy School District 20. It allows me to work at home, work more efficiently, spend more time with my family, and work in north Colorado Springs or Monument (most of the time). I work in an area where the average sales price is about $120,000 per home above the Colorado Springs MLS Real Estate Market Update Report
Academy School District 20 includes many popular neighborhoods in north Colorado Springs including Black Forest, Bison Ridge, Briargate, Charter Greens, Cordera, Cumbre Vista, Flying Horse, Gleneagle, Highland Park, Northgate, Peregrine, Pine Creek, Pleasant View Estates, Rockrimmon, and Wolf Ranch.
Giving Back to the Community. I am a firm believer in supporting our local community, that is why if you use Nancy Murray and Associates to buy or sell a home, we will donate $250 in your name towards your favorite charity or non-profit organization at the closing table. This could also include Academy School District 20 parent organizations, bands, sports, or other activities at any Colorado Springs school.
