With only one month of the new year under our belts and with this being the slowest time of year for Pagosa real estate, there is not much of a story to tell. We are up by a couple of transactions over last year, but the sample is so small that it’s hard to tell whether the numbers mean anything ...
Regarding the Real Estate Market in Pagosa Springs – which would you like first, the good news or the bad? Being an optimist, I’ll start with the positives. Let’s talk about the glass half full. We are having a big sale, similar to Black Friday after Thanksgiving. Prices are marked down and there...
The Riley family had a great Thanksgiving. Laurie and I traveled to Denver to visit family, including our son and our new daughter-in-law. The festivities included seeing Riverdance and watching Carmelo Anthony score 50 points as the Nuggets beat the Knicks! All in all, we had a superb holiday, a...
Go Broncos! This year, the Broncos are 6 and 1, and we are leading the division. According to the “experts,” we were only supposed to win 4 games this year!

September is also a busy time for local real estate, as Labor Day weekend and archery hunting season bring in many out-of-towners ...
I have some good real estate news. Things have been very busy in my office lately. I think we may have hit bottom in the housing market. About the time I decided to take a summer vacation two weeks ago, the genie came out of the bottle. Most of the activity is on single family homes. It reminds m...
One down and one to go! I just had the best Father’s Day ever, as my daughter just got married at our home. It was a beautiful ceremony on a perfect afternoon. Heather married John Lovell, a Navy man from Tennessee. After months of planning, everything went off without a hitch. Next, my son will ...
It’s been a busy past week. Last weekend, I had four buyers come to work with me.  On Saturday, I had appointments at 10:00 a.m., noon, and 3:00 p.m..  Sunday at 9:00 a.m. was the icing on the cake! So far, two have written contracts to buy homes. The third is close to buying, and the fourth has ...
