Congratulations to my Sellers on a quick cash transaction, and was nice of the buyers to give them a month to finish packing and move!    This wonderful couple first called in late 2004, sold a home, and they bought this home so many years ago.    I will miss them but wish them much happiness in Oklahoma.   Not often when your clients say --- sorry, but don't want you at the closing!   Last Friday I was diagnosed with COVID, and didn't blame them.    Her mom is over 80 and they didn't want to bring home anything.   But, first time in 26 years I didn't attend a closing! This property went into MLS on Friday (only to get the word out), but interior photos were up until late Friday afternoon.  After a flurry of showings on Saturday, got calls with interested buyers.    One was VERY excited...

This beautiful home is on a 1/2 acre, giving privacy and my buyers fell in love!   It is a larger home with over 3,300 square feet finished and at the end of the cul-de-sac, which they loved.It will be fun to see it on inspection, as Laura showed my buyers this home, and she said they were very excited walking the home and lot and imagining what the home will do for them.Perfect home for Christmas!

Yesterday I was showing in Castle Pines, and thought I would drive down Daniel's Gate Road, and it was virtually empty at least for a while.    It was a beautiful clear day with the mountains so clear!Then I came upon a whole flock(?) of wild turkeys.   We don't see them often here, but have in the Pinery in Parker and now in Castle Pines.    These birds were so beautiful, with their colors so vibrant.   I wish I would have done a close-up shot, but there were cars behind me, waiting for them to cross the road!Thinking they are not aware Thanksgiving is just around the corner!   🤪

 The Town of Larkspur is located 40 miles south of Denver and West of I-25.   The town was incorporated in 1979 and today is known for the Renaissance Festival held every year in Larkspur and the Yogi Bear's Jellystone Campground.   Most homes in Larkspur are on lots of one acre or more and surrounded by trees.   You will see lots of wildlife - deer, mountain lions, bears (brown & black), foxes, coyotes and lots of birds.  Going to the grocery store will require a trip to Castle Rock, and depending on where in the town you live, it could be 15 minutes.   There isn't much in the "town", but a gas station, post office, three restaurants, and of course two golf courses with restaurants.   Bear Dance Golf Course is closer to I-25, and Perry Park Golf Course is on the West side of town. The ...

Congratulations to my relocation family on their new Colorado home!    They have been here for a few months now, and just love it, but now they have a home to enjoy!   They would have rather found a home with acreage, but they LOVED this home, and was so meticulously maintained.   It is quite a bit larger than they would have liked - but now they are now limited on how many visitors they can have!   The neighbors are great and are looking forward to the block parties!     Once my California relocation couple got their home sold and returned from their European trip, it was time to hit the bricks!   They have temporary housing, so wasn't like it was urgent, but they were looking forward to SEEING the homes versus just online. We were going out almost every single evening after work, and ...
