This Sunday November 18th is the last day to catch the play, A Streetcar Named Desire playing in Parker.  Our Parker property management community event watch page has this alerted that it will be the last day.  The price varies, so get to the event early to secure a ticket.  See the description below.  “Tennessee Williams’ Pulitzer Prize winning play follows the mental and moral disintegration of Blanche DuBois, a former Southern belle, as her neurotic, genteel pretensions clash with harsh reality.  Presented by Parker Arts and Inspire Creative  The play reveals to the very depths the character of Blanche du Bois, a woman whose life has been undermined by her romantic illusions, which lead her to reject—so far as possible—the realities of life with which she is faced and which she cons...

 This brand new home is now closed and the Buyers are diligently working hard at unpacking.   They doubled their space, so should not be a problem.    The previous buyers fell out due to financing, so the home was almost ready when they wrote on it, but did get to choose a few items in their colors.   They are excited to have so much room, and a much larger back yard for their growing family.   Congratulations, and looking forward to seeing the finished home when you are more settled. It is very special when past clients call and ask to see homes out of the blue!    Anthology is very close to their current property, and wanted to see a couple of homes that were in MLS.    They really liked the Alcott with the finished basement, but before they could get decisions made on financing and w...

 This young family called me late summer thinking about a new home, a brand new home, and we went to look at their options.   It wasn't long and they found one that was perfect.   It wasn't long, and they got their home on the market, and within 8 hours, received a cash offer.   The Buyer was also very flexible to work around the close date of their new home. I appreciate the opportunity to list and sell this gorgeous home, and wish the Sellers many wonderful years in their new home. This Pottery Barn home is just as cute in person as it shows in the photos!   This home has been remodeled, and all the work has already been done - the Buyer just needs to move in!  Located in Stroh Ranch, Parker, CO. 12918 S.

 This Pottery Barn home was a very popular home once it hit the market!  It took less than 8 hours, and saw a great offer and went under contract.   These Sellers truly take pride of ownership, and now are past the inspection contingency.   It is a cash offer, so we are through all contingencies and will await closing in October to coordinate with their new construction closing.   This home has been remodeled, and all the work has already been done - the Buyer just needs to move in!  Located in Stroh Ranch, Parker, CO. 12918 S.

 The walk through process is the important last step before handing over the keys to a new tenant to begin moving into their rental home.  This is the time to note any pre-existing damages in the home and to get a running checklist of issues with the home.  We conduct one walk through at the beginning of the lease and a final walk through at the end of the lease.  Working in Parker property management this procedure is crucial in ensuring smooth turnovers between families.                The move in walk through involves meeting the tenant when the house is empty and going room to room noting all areas of each space.  We check out the wall, floors, ceiling and doors as well as every cabinet, closet, appliance, light fixture and fans.  This part of the process can be very telling of your...
