FLYING  W  RANCH      NOW JUST A MEMORY.

Our hearts are sadden at this time as we reflect on the devastation of the Waldo Canyon fire with two people dead, 346 homes in Colorado Springs were lost, and the burning to the ground of a 60-year-old institution, the Flying W Ranch.

While the Mountain Shadows neighborhood was hit the hardest with weather conditions that created a firestorm, other areas like Cedar Heights, Cascade, Green Mountain Falls, Woodland Park, Peregrine and the Air Force Academy were spared due to the valiant efforts of the firefighters.Utilities crews worked long hours as well protecting the city’s utilities resources and restoring power, water and gas to those most affected by the fire.

While this tragedy has brought

Dear Janet and Steve,

I want to thank and you and Diane so much for all the help you gave us in
buying our new home. From the start in 2010, when we decided to move to
Colorado Springs from Australia your service was far and above the best we
could have expected.

Being a bit knowledgeable on the internet, I found you and your website with
a Google search. What was important to me and stood out was that you were a
personalized business, one-on-one and not a corporate number cruncher. You
asked me the right questions and profiled Gail and me to a tee. Then set out
finding the right home for us; not the one we envisioned but now the

Don't lose real estate buyers over minor fixes


DEAR BARRY: Our home is in escrow. We disclosed every defect we could think of, but the buyers relied on their home inspector. The inspector didn't find any serious problems, but he did list a number of cosmetic defects and routine maintenance repair needs, such as peeling paint, loose exterior trim, a cracked window and a damaged bedroom door.

All of these were listed on our disclosure statement, so we thought the buyers would be satisfied with the inspection report. But they are demanding that we fix every single defect or they won't buy the property. This seems very unfair to us. What do your recommend? --Angie

What is a "Home Inspection"?

A home inspection is an objective visual examination of the physical structure and systems of a home, from the roof to the foundation. Having a home inspected is like giving it a physical check-up. If problems or symptoms are found, the inspector may recommend further evaluation.

What does it include? The standard home inspector's report will review the condition of the home's heating system, interior plumbing and electrical systems; the roof, attic, and visible insulation; walls, ceilings, floors, windows and doors; the foundation, basement, and visible structure.
