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.
Imagine my surprise and delight when I opened my email this morning and found this! Have to admit, it even made me a little teary. This is such a beautiful reward for the job we do. Thank you!Mimi Foster is service before, during, and after the sale, and a friend during the entire experience.Her ...

There are many dangers in listing your home For Sale by Owner (commonly known as a FSBO). It’s not because I've been in the real estate business for over two decades that I very much dislike the idea of people selling their homes as Unrepresented Sellers.There are a dozen drawbacks that immediate...
I have often said that our best kept secret in Colorado Springs is our moderate climate and 300+ days a year of sunshine. All of that is true - except when it's not. My apple tree exploded with thousands of blossoms this week. We woke to heavy, wet snow this morning. It's not really cold out,but ...
In the early 2000's, the laws were different on foreclosures. I've never been a fan of more government, but tightening the laws to protect the consumer did not come too soon.At the time, when someone was ninety days past due on their mortgage, it became a matter of public record. After that, the ...
I met him in November and it was love at first sight. I was in my early 30s and he had just turned 96. As I saw him walking toward me at the care facility where my grandmother lived, Florenz immediately captured my heart. I used to take my five young daughters to visit regularly. We would all sit...
At one time I wrote a post about What Realtors Do for Buyers (if you haven't read it, it's worth checking out). Many commented and emailed that they have worked with Buyers who couldn't figure out why we got paid if all we did was drive around all day. Several Buyers had commented that they can l...
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...
