 Couldn't have done it without her We entered the market in 2021 when there were more buyers than sellers. But, with Joan's guidance and perseverance, we were able to find our first home. Joan is very knowledgeable, experienced, caring, and patient as she educated us on what we need to look out for and expect in such a volatile housing market. Not only did we gain a new home for us, we also gained a lifelong friend in Joan. Review submitted by Arthur & Katrina (Buyer) on 18 Jun 2021 This couple was a web visitor and after COVID hit the Denver market, they decided to renew their lease for a few more months.    I met them for coffee prior to showing homes to better get to know each other.   I look forward to staying in touch with this couple, and watch their family grow!

This first-time couple are now proud homeowners, and cannot wait until the day they are able to take possession!    The Seller needed a 30-day post-closing occupancy to find a replacement home.   They are beyond excited, and will be excited to watch their next chapter!  Congratulations to Arthur & Katrina, and thank you for allowing me to assist you with this purchase! Denver, like most larger cities right now, is experiencing low inventory, multiple offers, and offers made thousands over list price.    Early last year I had someone make an inquiry on my website and they really wanted to buy their first home.   We stayed in contact, but after COVID hit, they decided to wait it out, and renew their apartment lease for a few more months. About 2.5 months ago, they spoke to a lender and st...

 THANK YOU Dena Stevens Coriz for sending this referral my way!   I so much enjoyed working with your sister, and it all worked out for her.   I think she will be very happy in Oklahoma near her kiddos!    The Seller was extremely easy to work with, because the buyer sure wasn't!   She is very lucky to know the Seller, as she would still be looking for a property! Congratulations Paula, and best wishes on your next chapter! In a crazy Seller's market and you get a call from a potential seller, it is a JOY!    Then they tell you "I have my own buyer".     Do they qualify?    Have they been in your home?   Lots of questions. Upon a visit, you discover they are in the process of packing, and there are quite a few boxes around and would make it tougher to get great photos to showcase the pr...

  Wondering how the market is doing in The Conservatory?   Each month I do the statistics for this neighborhood to see how long homes are on the market, the number of homes sold, and how the home values are doing.  This is how you stay on top of a market shift or understand how quickly homes are going pending!  Below you will find the update for this month and what is currently available.  Homes in The Conservatory have basements, some are finished, some have mountain views, and were built from 2002 to 2016.  There are ranch models along with two-story and multi-level homes ranging in square footage from 1,387 to almost 3,000 above ground.  DR Horton/Continental was the original builder, but now Richmond, Standard Pacific, and Carpace have homes in this neighborhood also.  There are app...

                 Dedicating yourself to some simple tasks every quarter will always set you up for success in the following months.  The best housekeeping is proactive not reactive.  The less you have to do each quarter the better.  In Aurora property management we have an April 1st ritual of cleaning up all the desktop commuters.  Try these simple steps to get your devices optimized and running much better.                Cleaning the computers should be your first step.  Wipe down all surfaces especially your keyboard, mouse and phone receivers.  This should be done frequently but if it’s just you are using these items then you are okay to space out the cleaning.  You would be surprised how much grime, dirt and germs these devices attract and hold onto.  Clean out any dust on your ele...

 This property is now CLOSED and the new buyers are moving in this weekend.   At closing they talked about having a baby in the near future, just like the Sellers, and there was good karma in this beautiful home.   They hooted in the room, and as they exited the building they were still hooting and hollering.   The Seller closed earlier in the week, as they had already left for Michigan.    I wish the best and look forward to watching their new home being built in the next few months on their 60 acres.  As expected, this remodeled and beautiful townhome was a H O T property, and after Friday night showings, already had offers to review.   Showings went through Saturday to allow more buyers to view and received more offers.  Saturday night an offer was selected.  There is a completely ne...
