Playing Dress Up & Showing Houses
Have you heard of the Kiwanis Club? It’s a volunteer group that does some good for the community. I just filled out a form to participate, so I’ll update you on what it entails. There’s a flyer below detailing their fall festival on Sept. 30 (the same day as the start of our Georgetown scavenger hunt, but don’t fret! You can do the hunt on Oct. 1, too!).
While on that note, the scavenger hunt is gonna be lit. For real. You all must join! The prize is $1000! You’ll support your locals, get some goods, and maybe win big. What do you have to lose? Bring your friends!
So, my office has this cool accountability group called Reignite. We set work goals, and the group helps you stay focused and motivated. We met last Friday and will continue to do so going forward. If you need help with self-motivation, I highly recommend an accountability group or partner or friend, or whatever. It truly helps.
Speaking of help, Bridger helped with my CrossFit gym’s chili cookoff booth. He cooked and passed out the chili, and he had a total blast. I mean, he loved it, which I loved to hear. He was there all day and worked his booty off while chatting it up with a bunch of adults. He also did a great job at his baseball games over the weekend and is holding the best batting average on the whole team. Proud mom moment.
Yesterday, I went to the Mountain Metro Association of Realtors (MMAR) event for their swearing-in of new members. It was a 1920s theme, so I headed to Disguises in Lakewood (love that place) and got some digs. It was so much fun. I got blue contact lenses, a black wig, and a flapper kit. We’re talking all out. It was a sight to behold, and the whole night was a success. Congrats to all the new members!
My Colorado Real Estate Activity
Last week, I did a couple of video walk-thrus for clients living out of state. I’ve gotten pretty good at this since I’ve done it so many times. In fact, I’ve had clients buy a house sight unseen based on all the information I provided, and they love it (toot-toot). But it’s so important to be hyper-focused on the details, like water pressure, smell, cleanliness- all the stuff that tells you what it would like to live in the house.
This is one of the reasons why working with an agent you can really trust is essential. So be sure to vet your agent correctly before making a decision regarding who to hire for this big step.
I have some transactions moving forward, and all is going well thus far. I met with some new buyers referred by a contact at KW International. They’re looking at new developments here. We went to the Aurora Highlands. It’s an interesting area south of the airport, with 44,000 units going in over the next 20 years. It’s massive. You can get a big, nice house for under $600,000. So, keep that in mind.
And I’d like to shout out to Christy and Donna, and Phil and Kathy- it’s their property-selling anniversaries today! Congrats, guys!
