Happy New Year's to everyone!    I have always enjoyed New Year's because it gives me the opportunity to think about my goals.   In some ways, I'm a very much a long term planner.  At other times, I live from moment to moment.     My worst habit is procrastinating.      Yet breaking a bad habit, ...
It is hard to believe that it is already November.  It just seems like I was working on figuring out what this year's New Year Resolutions will be.       Halloween is over.   Thanksgiving is just a few weeks away.     Business wise, I've spent the last six weeks attending a business planning clas...
See It.  Experience It.  Live It.      I first came up with this slogan because it described how this Texas gal came to live in Colorado.    First, I got to SEE Colorado in pictures.  I even drove through it once.  I thought Colorado was pretty but there are a lot of really pretty places in the w...
I think one of my favorite things about getting a new listing is taking the pictures of the property.  I enjoy REALLY looking at a home or a piece of land, trying to figure out would be the best shots.  With digital cameras and a large memory card, I can take more pictures than I will ever need. ...

The Denver Botanic Gardens are  lovely place to visit.  However, Dale Chihuly’s glass sculpture exhibit that is spread out over the 24 acre grounds offers an entirely different level of enchantment.    The glass sculptures are so well coordinated into the gardens, I initially thought they were a ...
Fun things to do in Colorado this weekend:  Colorado Renaissance Festival Step back in time to the magical Renaissance period….. Dress up even though it isn’t Halloween.  (Costumes are available for rent at the fair.)   Or don’t dress up.  I didn’t.   Enjoy the food.  The ever changing sights.  T...
This month Donna Foerster has challenged us to think about how we give back to our communities via her contest, "What Have You Done to Make a Difference in Your Community."   In addition to staying informed about what is going on my community/city and voting, I regularly engage in various volunte...
Repayment of the First-Time Home Buyer Credit   Many of us have heard about the “low inventory” problem.    This problem is not in the high end/luxury market.    My theory is that the low inventory problem may be related, in part, to concerns related to the repayment of the First Time Home Buyer ...
