Why Mimi Foster is the Best Downtown Colorado Springs RealtorFor over a decade, my husband Dave and I restored more than a dozen Victorian homes in Downtown Colorado Springs. Most of them were Colorado College rentals that oblivious students who did not understand the treasures they were destroying had used and abused.We started on our own block. Night after night they disturbed us with street parties that lasted well into the wee hours of the morning. There were two college rentals across the street from each other a few doors down. One was the keg house, the other the pot house.Back and forth the lines continually flowed - school nights and weekends alike. No amount of politely asking for consideration or resorting to calling the police would quiet the music and loud voices at all hou...

Do you want that stranger in your home?Even though I've been in the business for decades, I try to look at this objectively and wonder, if I weren't a Realtor, would I try to sell my house on my own? There are many dangers in listing your home For Sale by Owner (commonly known as a FSBO). But from any angle which I approach it, the idea of people selling their homes as Unrepresented Sellers is alarming.There are a dozen drawbacks that immediately come to mind when I think of not being represented by a Professional Realtor. The one that makes me the most uncomfortable, however, is not something you can foresee, and that is the safety of the homeowner.When you open your home to a stranger who just rang the bell, you have no idea who the person stepping through your doorway is. Friend or f...

When you move to a new city or area there is always the immediate need for where to find stores, schools, neighborhoods, hair salon, doctors, etc.  As you get settled in you realize now I need to find my self care support system.  A vital part of this, for me, is a fabulous skin care salon and facial.  Living in Colorado Springs brings the benefit of 300 average days of sunshine a year and record days of being outside.  With that however brings the importance of skin care, hydration and sun.   Imaage Skin Spa is one of the best in town for a small intimate setting that wraps you in the essence of pampering from the moment you walk in the door.  Warmth, elegance and lovely fragrance envelope you in just the right way that sets the stage for a delightful day of pampering. Imaage esthetici...
