Are you getting more and more emails that include such verbiage as, "Can U show us house at .......2moro?"  or "ISO 4 bdrm with bsmt.", and "LMAO at pics, cu LOL."  Now I know we've gone away from the formal letter of yesteryear but shouldn't emails have some sort of resemblance to a grammaticall...
I for one have admitted on previous blogs that I'm an education junkie and yes I was taking an online CE course this weekend with VanEd. I'm not an appraiser nor do I play one on TV! Interestingly enough my perceptions about meeting appraisers at my listings was confirmed in a course I was taking...

What I'm waiting for is that predictable anticipated Monday afternoon phone call from hubby, "want to grab some food and watch the game?"  What's better than finishing the work day grabbi...
It's time to pack a picnic and head to the hills to see the aspens change color here in Colorado.  Late September to mid October is the best time to see the fall colors change in the Rocky Mountains.  The challenge is to try to outwit old man winter and pick a weekend to drive one of the scenic h...
