What's a "Good" Real Estate Agent?

June 14th, 2008

A few weeks ago, I did a presentation for a local real estate company on Prospecting without a Sales Pitch. When I got to the part about why I think it’s more important to be a good real estate agent than to be a good real estate prospector, a hand went up in the back of the room.

“What exactly do you mean by being a “good” real estate agent?”

Ahhhhhh…. I’m SO glad you asked.


It's Finally Summer in Denver!

June 14th, 2008

Those who know me well know I’m a summer girl. I have to force myself out the door when it’s below 70 degrees - and I come alive as the thermometer reaches toward 100. A lot of my friends thought I was nuts when I moved from dry, temperate, bug-free Denver to hot, humid, home-of-the-mosquito Alabama, but I tell ya, it was bliss for me (you just stay inside during the hours of 4:00 and 6:00p ...

Six Hours and Three Minutes from Denver… Heaven on Earth (okay, Kansas)

June 11th, 2008

I just returned from a 3-day camping trip to… the middle of Kansas. Yeah, I know. I had my doubts, too. Why Kansas? Well, the LDR DBF was going to be in Kansas City for Rockfest 2008 (no, I wasn’t invited and that’s cause he really likes me), so we figured it made sense to meet halfway between KC and Denver for a little rendezvous.

He suggested Wilson Lake State Park. For those of you ...

A Sunday Morning Bike Ride

May 27th, 2008

On Sunday morning, I met some friends for a little bike ride from Highlands to Confluence Park, and up & down the Platte River Bike Path. Perfect temperature, just a slight breeze, sky so blue it was almost purple. It was my first venture across the new pedestrian bridgeconnecting Northwest Denver to Downtown - it’s pretty darn cool. So anyway, here’s a little photographic journey of all th ...

Sell with Soul II - Off to Press!

May 27th, 2008

But… it’s DONE and out of my hands. In about a month, Sell with Soul II will be a real live book, available to hold in your very own hands, all 72,110 words of it. It’s the second edition of Sell with Soul I, with ab ...

SOLD! In Four Days... Hey, this stuff works!

May 1st, 2008

Last Thursday, I put a wonderful little 1925 Bungalow on the market. Sunday soldevening, I presented multiple offers to my seller. We’re now under contract about $7k higher than asking price, and inquiries are still coming in.

But, wait a minute! I thought we were in a miserable housing market… what the heck happened?

Pretty simple, actually. My sellers did everything I asked them t ...

My Seller Asks... "Do I need to fix this?"

May 1st, 2008

An open letter to homesellers everywhere... from the heart.

My Dear Seller,

Last night you asked me what you should fix before we go on the market next week. You may have noticed that I was a little uncomfortable answering the question. Why? Because I hate to spend your money and I know how much you already have on your plate. Believe me, I feel your pain... but...

I have a ...

Northwest Denver DOWNZONED! How do I feel about it?

April 30th, 2008

As you may have heard, the Denver City Council had a marathon session on Monday night - rumor has it that it finally broke up at 3am! I say "rumor" because I gave up around 9pm - I'm a lightweight when it comes to political events.

The topic at hand? Whether to approve a request to "downzone" two sections of my beloved Northwest Denver infilneighborhood in Sloan's Lake and West Highland. " ...
