Rocky Mountain Diaper Depot - A charity I can really get "Behind" Boy, this one really struck a chord with me. A couple former clients have founded this great non-profit to not only help raise awareness for the need for diapers for those that can't afford them on a regular basis, but to try to single- handedly change this forever. Some Facts: 60,000 kids below the age of 5 live at or below the poverty level in metro Denver Infants and toddlers can use up to 8-10 diapers a day, costing as much as $150.00 a month. Food stamps can not be used to cover the cost of diapers To save money, many moms will re-use dirty diapers, this creates serious health issues and can delay toilet training To save money some kids are kept in the same diaper all day Most of these families do not own washing mac...

Rental prices are Mile High in Denver, it just might be time to buy. My middle son recently had several friends graduate from college and many are finding their first "big-boy/girl" job as an adult. After living away from the parents for the past 4-5 years, it is very difficult to transition back into living under mom and dad's roof again. However with rental rates approaching $2,000 for a 3 bedroom townhome that makes for a very difficult decision. Do you sink everything into a rental with a couple friends, so you can be on your own, or do you play it smart, move back home for a year or so and start saving some money to put a down payment on a house. That would be the smarter move. Although I am seeing an even smarter move, several parents are in a position to help their adult kids pur...

Things to do at Tagawa Gardens: August 2014   I enjoy shopping at Tagawa Gardens. During my last visit in early July, I wandered around the indoor gift shop. They had many wonderful and unique items including yard art and decor; gardening clothes, tools and hats; greeting cards, pillows and pottery. And as you can tell from the photo, outdoor furniture! After perusing for a bit, I ended up purchasing a lovely brass and glass hummingbird feeder! I had a cheap plastic one from last year and decided I needed an upgrade. My sister claims she saw a hummingbird when she was visiting, but I still have not seen one myself! I think they are hiding from me!   In addition to their shop and nursery, Tagawa Gardens offers weekend classes, concerts and other events. Get out your calendar and save the...

If you remember one thing from this article, please remember this: The Colorado Real Estate Commission approved contract to buy and sell real estate is extremely slanted in favor of the buyer. Every builder’s contract is not in favor of the buyer. Listen, I have nothing against builders. I like builders and have many good relationships with builders, but buyers need to beware of builder contracts. You see, a builder’s contract is not approved by the Real Estate Commission and is written to protect the builder, not the buyer. There’s nothing wrong with that, but if buyers are expecting the same contingencies and protections they would receive when they buy a re-sale home with an approved contract, they need to wake up. The builders know that there is no inventory in the market. They are ...
