  One of the most enjoyable aspects of listing and marketing properties is getting to assist sellers in preparing their home for sale.

One of the most common statements heard about Colorado weather is, "if you don't like the weather just wait 20 minutes and it will change."  Although most times it's said in jest there is a warning embedded in those 14 words. Summer storms come up quickly and without much warning and with the num...

  It's not all about self promotion with generation Y, but what I offer and where to find me and I better be on the latest social media sites.  Speed of response is critical to this group as well and I mean responding in a nanosecond.  A New York minute won't cut the mustard anymore!  Staying hip...
