Real Estate Agent - Falcon Property Company
Thoughts of a warm-hearted but opinionated long-time Realtor who sells residential property in Colorado Springs and surrounding areas and cities. I sell resale homes, new builds, and investment property. I have a heart for military relocation, specialize in helping out-of-state owners sell their Colorado Springs rental property, and have a passion for Victorian and Vintage homes.
For the past few months, I have been working remotely with a prospective Buyer from the East Coast who found me online (thank you, ActiveRain). Reasonable, rational, educated, and well-prepared, when he and his wife came to town to scout out the area and available homes, we made an outing out of ...
If you are Buying a home, most people feel as though their Agent gets paid for showing them houses. Whether we show you one house or four dozen, it has no impact on what we are being paid for. If you are a Seller, many believe that the real estate professional is paid for marketing their home. Bu...
This morning I received a call from the President and CEO of our local Board of REALTORS®. He informed me that NAR had contacted HIM to complain about MY site (as opposed to them contacting me directly?) because, even though I had used the Registered Trademark on the word Realtor® on my website, ...
 If you have been in the real estate business for any length of time, the concept of Buying a Listing should not be new to you ~ but it SHOULD be something that you avoid like the plague. Let's say Mr. Smith has a home to sell. Doing his due diligence, Mr. Smith calls five Realtors to interview a...
What is In a Buyer Agency Agreement? Many people believe that when they are looking for homes and work with a Buyer Agent, that the Agent gets paid for showing them those houses. That is not at all the case. We can show you one house or we can show you dozens of houses. We can work with you one d...
For many, many years, it never occurred to me to ask for testimonials from satisfied clients. When I finally DID start asking, I wondered what it is we are looking for in our clients' responses.  Sugary phrases that mean nothing but 'blah blah blah' and 'same as everyone else we have ever dealt w...
Just a little over two years ago, I wasn't really sure what it meant to be a blogger. It certainly wasn't something that I aspired to. I was way too busy with my work to have to deal with another learning curve, and what did I possibly have to say anyway? Over two-plus decades of real estate, I h...
 The recent increase by the Post Office is a great opportunity for you to stay in front of your clients. Has it been a while since you made contact? This is a golden opportunity for you to touch base and bring you front and center to their minds. This is simple, and easy for you to print on an 8....
When I first started in real estate, people would often ask for a Relocation Package. That meant maps, some printouts from the MLS 'book,' some Census Bureau statistics on area demographics, that sort of tangible information. Over the last two decades, things have changed considerably. With the a...
Finished in the year 2000, 3420 Valley Hi Avenue in Colorado Springs is a gently-used home for sale with three bedrooms and three baths. The oversized two car garage has storage and a work area.   Over 1800 square feet, this outstanding home is being offered at $188,000. One block from Valley Hi ...
