Real Estate Agent - Falcon Property Solutions
Thoughts of a warm-hearted but opinionated long-time Realtor who sells residential property in Colorado Springs and surrounding areas, including resale, new build, military relocation, helping out-of-state owners sell their Colorado Springs rental property, with a passion for Victorian, Vintage, and Mid-Century Modern homes.
I met him in early November and it was love at first sight. I was in my early 30s and he had just turned 96. As I saw him walking toward me at the elderly care facility where my grandmother lived, Florenz immediately captured my heart. I used to take my five young daughters to visit regularly. We...
To say I am a fifth-generation Realtor might sound clichéd, but being able to trace my family to before the Civil War and know this was the chosen profession of my ancestors makes it more impressive. Real estate is in my blood. I have discovered that as far back as my great-great grandfather, Wi...
Fifth Generation Land Trader Real estate is in my blood. Generations before me were passionate about the trading of land, about building restoration, about the purchase and sale of property. I am proudly carrying on that tradition. In the mid 1800s in Central Florida, my great-great grandfather, ...

As we enter this Season of Thankfulness, I couldn't let it pass without knowing that the choice I made as a scared young woman is one of the greatest blessings of m...

PB & JelliesThis was one of my first forays into video. I represented this client when he bought the store and thought it was a clever marketing angle. His life took a different turn and he is no longer running the shop, but this was a cute memory.  Over the years my videos improved . . . but the...
Too Many to CountIf you know me at all, you know that, several decades later, I'm still madly in love with my husband. His "love language" is Acts of Service, and there's not a day that passes that he doesn't show me in some form or another how much he loves me. While I was contemplating somethin...
