Thoughts of a warm-hearted but opinionated long-time Realtor who sells residential property in Colorado Springs and surrounding areas, including resale, new build, and investment, with a passion for Victorian, Vintage, and Mid-Century Modern homes.
Recently it has been my pleasure to hire dozens of long-time Realtors into our Company.  One of the things that I like most about the interviewing process is learning different ways that others are conducting business. In a recent discussion with a fifteen-year real estate professional, we were t...
If you know me, you know that I am a pretty friendly person.  I rarely meet a stranger, and my compassionate nature is such that I want to help, solve problems, guide, and generally make people’s lives better and easier. For decades, I have done just that for my Clients . . . helped, solved, guid...
When I first started in real estate, someone taught me the principle of The Shiny Penny, and I have always tried to make it my goal for every listing that I take.  Everyone lives in their home differently, and we understand the concept that how we live in our home is completely distinct from how ...

Holiday Stroll Downtown Colorado Springs 2012 One of my favorite traditions of the Season is the Holiday Stroll held each year in Downtown Colorado Springs on Tejon Street. A terrific way to get into the Holiday Spirit, this year forty downtown shops and restaurants have paired to bring you treat...
Don't let your real estate business come to a stand-still during the Holiday Season.  Here is a wonderful December Contest being sponsored by Kim and Kristine Halverson to help keep your business on track.  The idea is to stay focused so that January doesn't feel like you're starting a new job.  ...
Celebrating the Holiday Season, the 28th Annual Festival of Lights Parade (also known as the Parade of Lights) will take place on December 1, 2012.  The Parade will begin promptly at 5:50 pm at the corner of St. Vrain and Tejon in Downtown Colorado Springs.  Free to the public, both sides of Tejo...
For the most part, if we're on ActiveRain, we are bloggers.  This is where many of us got our start, it is what we are learning and perfecting, and it's what we do here ~ we write.
