Moonwalk... This past Saturday I went for a hike in Rocky Mountain National Park. At the end of the hike it was near 8pm and the moon was just starting to rise.

IRES First Colorado Green MLS As a member of the Appraisal Committee at the Colorado Governor’s Energy Office (GEO), I’m proud to say we’ve made some very good progress.

A River Runs Through Me… One of my favorite places to go in Boulder to be close to nature is Boulder Creek which runs right through the middle of town. A trail runs right along beside the water.

Denver Metro—Number of Homes Sold Yesterday I presented Denver Metro Real Estate Market Trends for Q2 at the Boulder County Real Estate Investment club. The data is quite sobering. One slide in particular points to a multi-year trend in the market—the overall decline in the number of homes sold y...
Balance Balance is one of my favorite words. I believe we need to find healthy balance in both our personal and professional lives. Balance in diet, exercise and recreation means we strive to meet our needs without excess or over indulgence. Emotional balance means we maintain a level of sensitiv...
Sunset in Lyons Colorado I visited a friend’s house in Lyons Colorado on Saturday evening. Lyons is a small town setting about 15 miles north of Boulder. It was a nice potluck gathering with a few close friends and family members. The deck behind her home overlooks a large canyon and has a specta...
