Real Estate Agent - Falcon Property Solutions
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.
A Realtor friend told me of a home inspection this week where the Buyers showed up with their Realtor and Inspector, and there was a plate of cookies on the kitchen counter. A stand-up note said, "We're excited to be under contract, and know that the inspection process can take several hours. Ple...
Today is the second anniversary of my mother's passing. I wrote this post not too long after she died. The pain, of course, has lessened, but the lesson learned has not changed. Tell them over and over while they're alive how much you love them. One day it's too late. Ben Kinney recently lost his...
I consider myself to be a somewhat sane, rational thinker. I've learned to take things with a grain of salt and get on with my life. But when we start passing laws that can have serious consequences to our clients, tenants, and loved ones, you have to wonder how we have gotten so far off track.In...
Back in the late 90's, it was easier to take advantage of homeowners who were in trouble on their mortgages. The more equity they had, the more they became prey to the crooks and bad guys.If someone was 90 days past due on their loan, it became a matter of public record. They then had 75 days to ...
We are down to one child at home (from six). Our youngest is developmentally delayed and will always be with us, so we keep downsizing. (HOORAY!) This summer we were blessed with a beautiful 1951 Mid-Century Modern rancher. We finished the basement and made a suite for our daughter, and we're on ...
If you've been in real estate for any length of time, you recognize that every deal is different and there is no way to anticipate some of the crazy twists and turns ahead for a transaction, or how some people can find ways to try to beat the system. Over the two decades since this happened, the ...
When I was a new agent, this question used to panic me. The older I get, the more I want to raise my prices because I understand more and more the value I bring to a transaction. Mary Jane Harris posed a question on AR's Q&A section asking how you handle this objection. I no longer entertain the ...
How Bullet Journaling Made Me More Productive If you’re anything like me, you take notes on any blank piece of paper/napkin/receipt that’s readily available so you can find it at some future date and act upon the important information contained thereon. Only problem is, that piece of paper either...
When I first got my real estate license, I was a single mother of five young daughters, my youngest being developmentally delayed. We had a lot of love but not a lot of money, so I was always eager and enthusiastic when someone said they wanted to buy or sell a home.After I'd had my license for a...
Springtime in the RockiesNeeding to change my focus, I found that relaxing at one of my favorite locations with a glass of wine, listenting to the sounds of nature, and letting the sun beat down on my face on this gorgeous 70* spring day was just the ticket to lift my mood. It was definitely a Co...
