~ Fair Condition ~ Recently I had a transaction go south due to the words of an appraiser on the appraisal report.  The home was a bank owned property.  My buyer was getting conventional financing through his credit union.  The home was a typical foreclosed home or one in the condition that you w...
~ Bad to the Bone ~ A picture is worth a thousands words, they say.  I have to agree.  I'm not sure who made this famous, but I have to agree.   As you can see, I didn't have to say a word.  the photos said it all.  Kobi loved his steak bone.  It was the perfect treat for the end of a beautiful d...

~ Pay It Forward - I'll Take Your Photo ~ On Friday night Dave and I went to the free concert at Southlands Mall in Aurora, Colorado.  Hazel Miller was the performer.  We truly enjoyed the concert.  We ordered a pizza to go from Old Chicago's, which is located across from the pavilion where the c...
