 I have a buyer currently that has a pitbull, and has had the DNA tested, and is one of the breeds that many cities around the metro area have banned.   Too bad too, as her dog is a sickly one, and would not hurt a fly.   I have heard that Aurora is looking to maybe look at them on a case by case basis, after interacting with the dog.  BUT, so far, they are still banned.  City of Denver has this same ban. Aurora City Council passed an ordinance back in 2005 prohibiting the following breeds of dogs and/or any dog exhibiting the majority of distinguishing characteristics that substantially conform to the standards for any of these breeds as set by the American Kennel Club (AKC): American Pit Bull Terrier American Staffordshire Terrier Staffordshire Bull Terrier  My client was contemplatin...

         Clients will come to you all year long, as noticed by our Aurora property management portfolio, regardless of time of year.   In a time of year where budgets abound you should take careful consideration to your budgeting of stress relief activities.                 For many, a good release is going to the gym twice a week or more.  This includes just weight lifting or cardio.  This is important because you cannot have the stress of work build up all year without any answer to it.  There are simple releases like just getting a good workout.  There are ways to crash out and burn spectacularly if you bottle it in and let it consume or overwhelm you.  At a minimum, getting the gym twice a week is a great benefit to your health.  Depending on your age you should be attempting to kee...
