 Couldn't have done it without her We entered the market in 2021 when there were more buyers than sellers. But, with Joan's guidance and perseverance, we were able to find our first home. Joan is very knowledgeable, experienced, caring, and patient as she educated us on what we need to look out for and expect in such a volatile housing market. Not only did we gain a new home for us, we also gained a lifelong friend in Joan. Review submitted by Arthur & Katrina (Buyer) on 18 Jun 2021 This couple was a web visitor and after COVID hit the Denver market, they decided to renew their lease for a few more months.    I met them for coffee prior to showing homes to better get to know each other.   I look forward to staying in touch with this couple, and watch their family grow!

I haven’t featured The Eagles on the Soundtrack since 2018 an oversight that I am correcting right now. After all, The Eagles are the largest selling rock band of all time.A lot of great music has come from this group since their early days when Glenn Frye and Don Henley split off from the Stone Ponies to form their own band. Over the years there have been a few changes to the personnel , but the band has only gotten better with each year.Today’s song Hotel California has, more than any other song, become their signature sound. For my money, no other band has done as good a job of replicating their music live on stage to sound so crisp and clear.Guitarist Don Felder composed the melody for "Hotel California." And brought it to Frye and Henley who added the lyrics along with Henley’s ras...

The real estate market is soaring today. Residential home values are rising, and that's a big win for homeowners. In 2020, there was a double-digit increase in home values a trend that's expected to head toward similar levels this year. However, skyrocketing prices are causing some to start questioning affordability in the current housing market. Many are quick to emphasize the fact that homes today are less affordable than they were last year. Black Knight, a leading provider of data and analytics across the homeownership life cycle, just reported on the issue. The findings show the historical averages of the national payment to income ratio, which they define as the share of the median income needed to make the monthly payments on the median-priced home. Their study reveals: The aver...
