2018 – New Year – New Beginnings

Over the Holidays I read quite a bit. Always a little down time to read,contemplate and renew. I was able to spend some unique moments with friends and family. Life is constantly moving, what direction is always a dynamic of energy and focus. With that said I realize that the energy focused also relates to the result aimed at. Sometimes it’s a positive and yet sometimes there’s no movement or momentum. Does that mean we didn’t work it or did we do as the saying goes ” put our ladder against the wrong wall.” My hope is that we all

Fall Is Here !

What a great time to live in Colorado. The leaves are changing, crisper mornings and ever changing weather. What about Real Estate ? The market is still fairly strong but is showing signs of typical fall/winter breather.

I’m betting that a few of us , myself included , have veered off track a few times already. The key is how long we let ourselves veer. I always start the year off with what I affectionately call “The Plan”.

I’m Addicted !

If there was a place that was for the perpetual addicted to smart phones , I’d be there. It is self REHAB time. With three businesses and each one requiring constant attention and focus I find myself constantly checking the phone and getting that dopamine  rush when their is a request for our services.
