Thankfulness…the attitude of gratitude. For what? The good things only? How about the tough times and the trip-ups that teach us too? Why aren’t we thankful for all of it? It's easy to only be thankful for the good things, but looking into the 'bad' things that happen, I've learned more when those occur and grown personally than any other time! Yes, sometimes it's a painful lesson or growth, but always I'm better for it. So how about you? Are you grateful that people like that came before us and struggled immensely to chisel out greater opportunity for future generations? Is your life really that hard? Look around and I bet you’ll find somebody today struggling like an early American settler. Be thankful that you have what you do and reach out with your talent and your resources to help...

People are more tentative about making investments today than at any time that I have observed in my 30 plus years in the business world. As a Realtor, I can tell you that buying real estate is no exception. So what doess someone thinking of buying or selling need to make a decision - TIMELY AND ACCURATE MARKET RELEVANT REAL ESTATE INFORMATION!! More importantly how do they want to receive it and how do they get it in the way they want to get it, free of cost and free of hassle! For years I have become increasingly convinced that any company or agent that provides the information that people want in the way they want it will ultimately be given an opportunity to show their skills when and if the party receiving the information decides to act. Of course part of the information delivered ...

What is Shadow Inventory - and What Will It Do To The Real Estate Market? Shadow inventory are homes that have gone through foreclosure and the bank normally list them for sale with a real estate broker. However, what we're seeing is that because the bank knows they are going to take a loss when selling these properties they are holding onto them thus the "shadow". In Denver alone, there are approximately 13,000 residential homes & condo's for sale in the Multiple Listing Service to date. It is also estimated there are approximately 25,000 Shadow Listings that banks are holding onto. These 25,000 homes won't be released all at once, however, they may be released in large blocks which will cause another downturn in the market. If you are thinking about selling your home NOW is the time b...

Three "Rules of Thumb" Help Investors Build Wealth Quickly.    1.  The "Rule of 72" is used to estimate how long it will take your money to double itself at a given rate of return on your investment. If you divide your rate of return into 72, the answer is how long will it take your money to double. For example, if you earn 6% on a savings account, it will take you 12 years for your money to double in value - 72 divided by 6. If you are able to increase your return to 10%, your money will double in 7.2 years - 72 divided by 10.   2.  The "Rule of Leverage". One of the beauties of real estate (as opposed to other forms of investment) is that you can use leverage to increase your rate of return. You leverage your investment by using a loan on the property and reducing the amount of your o...

Have you ever wondered what it would be like to wake up in the morning with enough money coming in that you could do what you want that day? Would you consider yourself “rich”? Here’s a definition of “Rich” that we like: “Rich” is the ability to wake up in the morning with the physical health, knowledge, friends, financial freedom, and passion to do what you want that day”. Financial freedom occurs when your annual investment income (your money at work) exceeds your annual lifestyle expenses. At this point you have “Wake-Up Money”. We have many clients who have achieved (or are on the path to achieving) this “Wake Up Money” lifestyle. Many of them have modest incomes but have become “rich” through their investment in local real estate – specifically homes and condos. One client in parti...

The Old Stone Church Restaurant in Castle Rock, Colorado     Looking for somewhere different to dine?  The Old Stone Church Restaurant in Castle Rock has great food and atmosphere.  This building was an actual church built in 1888.  It has survived the years and the weather and is now a popular restaurant.  The atmosphere is great with stained glass windows and two level seating.      The food is very good.  The American cuisine has steaks, fish, duck and chicken dishes.        I have dined here many times with friends and highly recommend this restaurant for a special night out.     They are located in the heart of Castle Rock at 210 3rd street.  If you want to call for reservations, they can be reached at 303-688-9000.
