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.
Back in the late 90's, it was easier to take advantage of homeowners who were in trouble on their mortgages. The more equity they had, the more they became prey to the crooks and bad guys.If someone was 90 days past due on their loan, it became a matter of public record. They then had 75 days to ...
We are down to one child at home (from six). Our youngest is developmentally delayed and will always be with us, so we keep downsizing. (HOORAY!) This summer we were blessed with a beautiful 1951 Mid-Century Modern rancher. We finished the basement and made a suite for our daughter, and we're on ...
If you've been in real estate for any length of time, you recognize that every deal is different and there is no way to anticipate some of the crazy twists and turns ahead for a transaction, or how some people can find ways to try to beat the system. Over the two decades since this happened, the ...
When I was a new agent, this question used to panic me. The older I get, the more I want to raise my prices because I understand more and more the value I bring to a transaction. Mary Jane Harris posed a question on AR's Q&A section asking how you handle this objection. I no longer entertain the ...
How Bullet Journaling Made Me More Productive If you’re anything like me, you take notes on any blank piece of paper/napkin/receipt that’s readily available so you can find it at some future date and act upon the important information contained thereon. Only problem is, that piece of paper either...
When I first got my real estate license, I was a single mother of five young daughters, my youngest being developmentally delayed. We had a lot of love but not a lot of money, so I was always eager and enthusiastic when someone said they wanted to buy or sell a home.After I'd had my license for a...
Springtime in the RockiesNeeding to change my focus, I found that relaxing at one of my favorite locations with a glass of wine, listenting to the sounds of nature, and letting the sun beat down on my face on this gorgeous 70* spring day was just the ticket to lift my mood. It was definitely a Co...
By personality I'm competitive and always want to win. But it's a quirk in my outlook that I hate to see someone lose. I was rarely a fan of multiple offers because I never found that they made my Seller more money, and if 'several someones' love a house enough to make offers, someone has to lose...
Rocky Mountain HighSeveral years ago, Colorado was one of the first States to legalize Medical Marijuanna. John Denver's song, Rocky Mountain High, had been our unofficial state anthem for almost three decades when that happened.People assumed the lyrics were about marijuanna, but Denver himself ...
     I'm starting a new blog series on my website for homes that I think are a great deal in any given week/month in my local market. Part of my search for a new niche has been to preview a lot of homes recently, and I was quite surprised at how many were on the market that were well-below market...
