Photographs and videos are an extremely important part of our marketing efforts.  This year, I have made a concentrated effort to improve the quality of my photographs which I hope will in turn help my video marketing also.  In May, I joined the Colorado Springs Creative Photography Meetup.Com gr...
The first two steps in buying a new home involve deciding what you want and what you can afford.   Before you start looking at homes with a Realtor, it helps to create a list of features that you must have and a list of things that would be nice to have.   This morning, as I was feeding my horses...
If I could teach prospective home sellers only one thing, it would be this:  Beware of real estate agents that are too nice.    You need to trust the real estate professionals that are not afraid to tell you what needs to be done in order to sell your home.   Agents that are too nice won’t do tha...
Completed in 1963, the USAF Academy's Cadet Chapel, in Colorado Springs, is reportedly the most popular man made attraction in Colorado.  Once I saw the interior, I understood why.  I'll try to explain with three pictures that I took this weekend.          Sondra   Sincerely,     Sondra Meyer Pet...
College sports is one of the perks that comes along with living in Colorado Springs.   Colorado Springs is home to Air Force Falcons, Colorado College and University of Colorado at Colorado Springs.  Last week, Air Force football fans were very unhappy.  Many left the stadium before the game ende...

Today was the first day of fall.  It is 10:30 and the wind is howling outside.  The temperature has dropped to 55 degrees.  As a look at a picture that I took of The Cliff House, an upscale hotel in Manitou Springs, I find myself amazed that summer is gone.  I also am amazed at how resilient Mani...
"I've lived in this neighborhood since 1974 and I've never seen anything like this."  "Just wait until tomorrow morning, photographers will be lined up along the lake."  "In our PE classes, we used to run out here.  This is the first time that I've ever seen a lake out here."  "I heard that Gener...
What does it feel like to live in a place that has made news headlines repeatedly since June?  For me, I feel wearied.  I also feel proud of how resilient our community is.    It is also an unfortunate that it is easy to look around and find someone who is even worse off than we are.       I've t...
