NYTimes Heads to Denver Colorado.Today, I was doing my daily reading and I came across Kristal Kraft.  I bumped right into her.  She was there with Truila, Zillow and  I have to say - Impressed I was.  Just want to give a big shout out and let you all know that your beloved KK - Kris...

I did not get a chance to post the CoRE #27 here today - My office was busy today and I had alot of catching up to do (ya know, you take one weekend off and EVERYTHING happens).  But, when I finally got a chance to overlook some of the posts - It was brought to my attention that one of the articl...
When my husband and I first got married he had already owned his own Clearview Co-op.  It was a great apartment.  We were on the lower level and we renovated it to the hilt.  When we had our first son, it was so easy to maintain.  I cleaned my house 1,2,3.  At that time I was a full time stay at ...
