Recharge in Moab Necessary, Lots of New Clients

Recharge in Moab Necessary, Lots of New Clients

Get this, Sterling “graduated” from pre-school last week, and it was there that my life forever changed with the news that he will be graduating from high school in 2034. WHAT? I know what you’re thinking. That’s impossible. We’ll be living like the Jetsons in 2034, flying cars, and all that. We’ll all be at least infinity years old then. That was my reaction, too. It sounds like an Orwell novel. Sci-fi and futuristic. 

Ugh. I’ll be so old. 2034. 

Anyway, summer camp is a hit. Baseball is going strong; however, at the rate, Bridger’s going, he’ll be sporting a top-knot or a ponytail or a boy-bun when he enters 5th grade in a few months. That kid still hasn’t hit a ball.

We went to Moab for the long weekend, and it was like a dream. It was raining here in Colorado, but the Moab weather was, dare I say, pristine. Perfect temperature with a nice breeze. No kids. Peace. We went for a nice shady land bridge hike and laughed a bunch with our friends. What’s not to love?

We made that all-day raft trip I told you about. It was really calm and fun. I loved being on the water. Tubing is the best. I miss the ocean, but I’ll take the lakes and rivers around here. It’s just a great, wholesome time. After the raft trip, we met up with our friends in downtown Moab and got ice cream. We planned to go on a big drive through a national park together, but that didn’t happen. Our friends passed out, so Tag and I relaxed and enjoyed some silence together. I mean, I listened to an audiobook, and he listened to a hockey game, but it was kinda silent. 

We started those in-person ukulele lessons, and the kids are enjoying them. I’m not sure the instructor really enjoys them (especially when Sterling’s up) but, it’s his job. In the words of some really rich Nike marketing person: just do it.

I’ve gone under contract on a few things lately, and that’s great. My Georgetown listing is under contract, and another of my land listing is under contract; the neighbor bought the land with cash, which is super cool. All good. My large acreage project is going well, and we’ll be closing any second. 

I’ve got lots of clients right now, and juggling is tough, but I’m getting it done. I found a great house for my Georgetown client; it literally checks all the boxes which I warned her wouldn’t happen. I have new clients I’m taking out in Idaho Springs tomorrow, two more getting ready to list any day now (one of which also has to buy), some people coming in from Utah this weekend to check out some land, and a new listing appointment for a gorgeous, 10 acre, $1 million houses next week. That last one was a referral. Gotta love a referral.

That’s about it. Still excited about other upcoming trips, and if you have the time and the means, I highly suggest you treat yourself, even to a staycation. I know you deserve it and just looking forward to something is beneficial to your well-being. 

See you next week, friends!
