Coming soon at the Southridge Rec Center will be a great Home Brew Class.  If you love beer and you want to take the next step and learn to brew your own!  This class will provide the tools and procedures to be able to brew a 5-gallon batch during the class.  The live presentation will show all the techniques you would need to make a live brew.  It should be pretty illuminating for you if you are looking for somewhere to start, or have just gotten into it.  It is easy to make a home brew, provided you have the tools, as you will see.  The Castle Rock Home Brew Supply professionals will be facilitating each session.  They have done many of these classes at the rec centers in Highlands Ranch.  We are very in tune with the rec centers and their event calendars throughout the year.  Our Hig...

                 If you have ever needed to present information to a lot of people at once you know how hard it can be for everyone to absorb it.  This comes in the form of email campaigns that can have any kind of subject.  Usually this is important content that we want to blast out to our client and tenant bases.  This can be anything from alerting them to industry changes or having them be weary of a freeze coming in and to make sure all hoses are disconnected from the spigots.  Obviously, we don’t send so many emails as to be annoying, but it is frustrating when you do need to convey some piece of information.  For these purposes we use Constant Contact, so we can measure all the user response and see the click rates of the information.                 The problem is increasing your...

                 During any time of the year it is important to have good phone habits.  When you are in the office you can of course commit yourself to answering the phone on the first ring.  But with showing phones, or work phones it becomes much more difficult.  Especially when this phone is ringing off the hook.  When surrounded by a mountain of incoming calls one must devise a strategy to field them all.  Ensuring everyone gets a response should be the most important thing.  In Highlands Ranch property management our phone is ringing more than it is off.  This is just a simple fact of the business.  A necessary evil if you will.  Here is how we often tackle this issue.                What we find helps immensely is having the answer for what people may be calling for on hand.  This...

Tonight, the Southridge Rec Center has a great event for anyone in the mood to just sit back and enjoy the classics.  The Classics and Cocktails night is a way for a large audience to enjoy the classics back on the big screen with a Friday matinee ensconced in signature cocktails and a very large assortment of classic candies.  In Highlands Ranch property management, we are always looking for ways to enjoy the end of a week.  Since we manage many homes in Highlands Ranch we are also uniquely in tune with what goes on at the four rec centers in town.  This event is planning to repeat again this month and in December.  We will be sure to post about it when it gets a little closer to it.  From the Golden Age of Cinema, the movie Rear Window, will be the first go about.  Grab some popcorn a...

                After the snow this week, it seems like Winter has come early and come hard. The storm this week took over the city and a lot of businesses closed their doors on Tuesday. We had our Highlands Ranch property management office closed Tuesday and Wednesday this week due to the conditions. The streets were hardly plowed, and the tiny temperatures, sometimes getting into the single digits late at night and early in the morning kept everything at a sheet of ice or more. Some people even had trouble getting out of their parking spots out front of their house. The best thing about these winter storms in Colorado, is that it rebounds quite hard in the next few days. The sun is out today and shining, and everything caught in its gaze is melting rapidly. The temperature got up to a...

Halloween night is almost upon us.  The next weekend will be the recognized weekend for the festivities.  New parent’s concerns will always include safety for their child on the big night.  There should also be some planning for them as well when it comes to the route they take.  This has many elements to it, chief among them is safety and proximity to your own house.  The secondary element should be the optimal candy route for your little ones.  Neighborhoods that are closely packed in in Highlands Ranch serve this purpose very well.  The Firelight neighborhood can have you cover 50 houses in little time at all.  Working in Highlands Ranch property management we are accurately aware of the layouts of the many communities we serve.               Make sure costumes can layer up for this ...

Halloween events are in full swing and this weekend should be the one with the most festivities. IF you are planning beyond the next 2 weeks, you probably are interested in what to do after all the fall decorations come down, the spider webs are put away and the mountains piles of leaves must be swept up and crushed in large contractor bags. November 2 is the Saturday after Halloween, and if you are the type to not celebrate Halloween or wear a costume after the actual Halloween on 10/31, then this is for you. Southridge Rec Center in Highlands Ranch is hosting a Sip and Savor 2019, from 4:00pm to 7:00pm. Part of our Highlands Ranch property management community event archive, we have detailed Davidson’s Liquors multiple events with the community and the outreach they have. They will be...

  With cold October air rolling in much earlier than usual, it can feel like the only place you want to stay is inside for your lunch break.  You may also default much more to delivery food.  Traditionally, people have an actual hour to eat lunch.  That is a long chunk of the work day to just be eating, so here are some ways to increase productivity during lunch, without just working at your desk.  In Highlands Ranch property management, we often have a lunch hour when there is a moment to take it.  Certain day to day situations dictate that we can’t just drop everything at 12 noon every day.  Here is what we do when we want to keep being productive during that time.                You should really step away from the phones and emails.  Answering a call during lunch could send you on a...

The Highlands Ranch mansion is a hub for many community events in Highlands Ranch. There are many opportunities to visit for anything during the month. HRCA has a nice three-part music series that deals with classical music. We will report on these in their respective months, but here is a brief preview of what is to come. Our Highlands Ranch property management community event watch has all of these happening son our radar, and our doing our best to broadcast them all through this blog. Long time readers or new readers will understand our commitment to this and will likely have already been to an HRCA event and are fully aware of the offerings from the rec centers and Highlands Ranch mansion in Highlands Ranch. These concerts always run from 6:30pm to 8:00pm.November 15th: ViolafourceT...

There are always a few ways to keep your home warm efficiently in the winter.  These tips and tricks will always help to keep your home warm.  There are no universal solutions for everyone, but tips can help overall.  In Highlands Ranch property management, we try to inform tenants during this time of year of these simple tips.  Using a blast email marketing campaign, you can easily reach all your tenants and clients to pass on tips.                 If you have ever found your downstairs living areas to be much colder than the upstairs, there is a neat trick to try to combat that without overdoing your heat output and making the upper levels a furnace.  If you happen to have ceiling fans on the upper level or the ceilings of your great room, you can reverse the output from pull position...
