Colorado Springs is an amazing place to get a great outdoor workout whether you are walking, running or riding a bike.   The scenery is very diverse so I find it hard to get bored.  Unfortunately, in July 2011, my sweet horse accidently stepped on my foot and broke my big toe.  It took 6 months t...
It was a cold, bleak, snowy morning in down town Colorado Springs.    The sky was grey.   The ground was white and the trees looked dead.    Even on a sunny day, there is nothing particularly appealing about the alleys, parking lots, and the backside of buildings in down town Colorado Springs.  ...
“The will to win is not nearly as important as the will to prepare.”  - Juma Ikangaa    I think this quote is true whether you are trying to win a race, a listing or in life in general.    Runners need to run regularly to build up miles.  The more you run the easier it gets.   If a runner is seri...
Home is where the heart is.    When I am at home – I relax.   Recently, someone  commented that I’ve been blogging a lot about Colorado Springs but I rarely mention Parker.    Well for me Parker represents home.   Parker is where I unwind.        Parker isn’t a destination town.  You can see the ...
Curb appeal important.   It may be just my personal tastes, but porches have a special sort of charm and appeal.    Just think if a porch could share it’s stories……        Although I have plenty of beautiful photographs of the porches of homes that had been for sale, I’d like to share this set of...

I assumed he was homeless. I walked by and acted as if I didn't see him.    Why would I do that...
It takes as much energy to wish as it does to plan. ----Eleanor Roosevelt In Colorado and many othe parts of the United States, we are in the middle of winter.  Everything is brown and many of us are looking forward to spring.   So, the last couple of weeks I've been on a mission.  I've been tryi...
People often say that motivation doesn't last. Well, neither does bathing-that's why we recommend it daily. – Zig Ziglar Ok, I'm going to be honest. We are day number 14 in the 2013 BIG Blog Jumpstart Challenge and there are 7 more days to go. Tonight I'm tired. I'm distracted. I thought about no...
This weathered, old, battered, scraggly looking tree reminds me of life in real estate sometimes.  Alright, maybe it even reminds me of some amazing Realtor’s that have been in the business since the 70’s or early 80’s.  It is a survivor.        Real estate can be a very hard business.  No matthe...
Dog Days – What Were They Thinking?   It doesn’t matter if you are taking photographs of a listing, a wedding, or your favorite pet; many of the pictures are not going to turn out.   That is why you should take a bunch of pictures from different angles.   The more photographs that you take, the b...
