Real Estate Agent - Falcon Property Company
Thoughts of a warm-hearted but opinionated long-time Realtor who sells residential property in Colorado Springs and surrounding areas and cities. I sell resale homes, new builds, and investment property. I have a heart for military relocation, specialize in helping out-of-state owners sell their Colorado Springs rental property, and have a passion for Victorian and Vintage homes.
Christmas Lessons Family is what matters. This was the first time in their lives that all of my girls were not able to be home for Christmas. We are close knit, and the girls are close to each other as a group, close in varying pairs, and certainly close when facing the rest of the world when de...
Real estate is a funny business. I had a listing on the market for almost two months without any perceptible interest. A very nice home, very well priced, but not enough to produce more than a cursory interest. Until the temperature dipped to five below zero, and we got three offers within an hou...
I've been out of the ActiveRain loop for a while. I LOVE it in the Rain. Some of my dearest friendships were formed here. When the real estate market slowed down for me last year, I decided to write a novel. Some might think that as a Realtor of 20+ years, something real estate related might have...
What are you afraid of?From symptoms of mild anxiety to a nagging sense of doom to full-out panic attacks, it is estimated that approximately twenty million people in the U.S. are actually afraid of this day. In American culture, we are told from a young age that Friday the 13th is supposed to be...
A little over two years ago, I was encouraged to join this amazing group called ActiveRain. Being a novice writer but quite verbose, I found my 'voice' as I shared and learned from my peers in a venue that became very much like family. My business THRIVED, referrals skyrocketed, and deep and abid...
The Catch-22 of the current Bankruptcy/Foreclosure Insanity Three years ago, unbeknownst to me, a dear friend/client went through serious financial difficulties. When all other options failed, like so many others who were caught in the recent market collapse, he made the very difficult decision ...
Buying a House – Not for the faint of heart The exciting moment comes when you know you’re ready to purchase a home. It’s either your first time, or you think you’re experienced and breezed through a purchase during the housing boom of the mid-2000’s. Well, sit down, buckle up, and get ready for ...
The City was on fire again. It was June, and the horror of last year’s evacuation and destruction was a shockingly close memory. We had spent the evening of the Waldo Canyon fire together, and it appeared as though fate had brought us together to spend time during the Black Forest fire that was c...
If you have been a Real Estate Agent for any length of time, you have probably discovered that past clients are a great source of future business. There are many ways of staying in touch with your raving fans: newsletters, phone calls, customer appreciation parties, market reports, first-of-the-y...
It's easy to write, right? That's why so many of us are here ~ to write and share and learn and interact with people who are in our line of business, with whom we have much in common. A little more than two years ago, I started writing on ActiveRain. Business was slow and I had never written much...
