The Princess Tea Party was last Saturday March 23 from 10:30am to 12:00pm.  The event sold out and there were no more tickets available at the door, so this entry into the Highlands Ranch property management blog comes a little late.  Usually we are ahead of the curve on these types of events, especially ones happening in our backyard.  All those that attended please send in the photos from the event.  The event page each year updates with the last year’s event pictures.  This allows you to track how the event progresses and is better each year, by enhancing the whole feel and scenario and environment. Everyone’s little princess enjoyed a morning of food, dressing up and Moana.  Moana enchanted the entire morning by sharing her personal stories, her story time and the photo opportunitie...

 Dedicating yourself to some simple tasks every quarter will always set you up for success in the following months.  The best housekeeping is proactive not reactive.  The less you have to do each quarter the better.  In Aurora property management we have an April 1st ritual of cleaning up all the desktop commuters.  Try these simple steps to get your devices optimized and running much better.                Cleaning the computers should be your first step.  Wipe down all surfaces especially your keyboard, mouse and phone receivers.  This should be done frequently but if it’s just you are using these items then you are okay to space out the cleaning.  You would be surprised how much grime, dirt and germs these devices attract and hold onto.  Clean out any dust on your electronics as well...

St. Patrick’s Day is this weekend and it is one of the yearly celebrations that surround a night (or several) of partying and drinking with other enthusiastic people.  You don’t need to drink to have fun on this day, but a lot of people use it to really let loose.  We will be conducting showings for our Denver property management portfolio this weekend, so no time for any of that.  But there are some facts we would like to share, that help support the idea that everyone is Irish on St. Patrick’s Day.  Irish American’s history stretches back to the Colonial era, and a vibrant set of facts has been immortalized by historians and the U.S. Census Bureau.  22 of the US presidents had Irish Roots and Andrew Jackson was the only president who had two parents born in Ireland.  9 signatories of ...

This is St. Patrick’s weekend this weekend with the actual day on Sunday this year.  You may have seen a few over eager revelers celebrating the holiday last weekend, but this weekend is the true observed time.  With that comes the healthiest alternative to drinking green beer all weekend, and that is the St. Patrick’s 5k on Saturday 3/16/19 from 9:00am to 12:00pm.  This is the Highlands Ranch St. Patrick’s Day 5K and will be launching from the Town Center South, just 5 minutes from our Highlands Ranch property management office.  Grab your friends and family and head on down to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day with a 5k run. You’ll need your best running or walking shoes and a costume that exudes Irish spirit.  We will see if the snow melts enough by the weekend to properly take a fast cour...

                 In the summer deadlines seem to creep up on every major milestone and every week.  Deadlines have a way of being ever present, in the background throughout the year.  We know all about deadlines in Highlands Ranch property management.  There are many from when someone is moving out, to moving in, to when a payment is due to when a security deposit should be returned.  When you have many deadlines colliding with one another you should always figure a best way to sort them out and focus on them, so none get missed.                 The trouble lies in when you must go into crunch mode and figure out a way to cram something at the last minute.  Working on all the toughest deadlines first allows you to create a much light work load towards the end of the deadlines.  You shou...

The International Wine Tour is coming to Southridge Rec Center, on March 2nd from 4:00 to 7:00pm. If the weather comes into town and makes it a hard journey to get there, the event will still go on. You may need to allot extra time to get to the event. The parking will however be easy as usual, since the plowing company will be out in full force as soon as the snow begins to fall. If there is any extreme ticket change, all ticket holders will be notified. In Highlands Ranch property management, we have seen our fair share of snow this year. This has been a good winter, in that the snow has routinely been falling. Last year’s winter was very dry and it had lasting effects throughout the year.  The Highlands Ranch Community Association and Davidson’s Beer, Wine and Spirits are jointly bri...

It looks like another great sunny day in Highlands Ranch during the tail end of winter and beginning of spring. There looks to be a bit of the icy grip of winter letting go, as we have had sun and a few warmer days sprinkled throughout. It has been light over all on snow, especially in the beginning of the winter. There were maybe 2 snowfalls in October 2 in November, and 3 or so in December closer to Christmas. January was light as well. The mountains did not suffer a lack of snow, and although there were weeks where there was no snow to be ridden on, it was overall a pretty good ski season if you braved the commute and the freezing temperatures on occasion. We are ready to get back into full swing for Highlands Ranch property management, so if we haven’t heard from you in a while, we ...

Many clients and professionals in your fields will come to you for advice at some point in time.  Giving advice is nuanced, and can be very persuasive to who you give it to.  There are many things to consider before giving out advice.  In Highlands Ranch property management, many first time investors will be coming to us for advice on rental rates and market conditions.  Some homeowners are just curious how their house stands up to their neighbor, or if they can really get what John down the street got for his rent.  We treat everyone with an inquiry the same way.First we assess our local expertise on the matter.  There are a lot of news reports and articles with data that very confidently claim certain things.  Interpreting data is a skill of its own, and there are a ton of sweeping ge...
