One of these “rules of thumb” says that if your current mortgage loan is less than two years old, you should not refinance. Generally, this thought comes from the fact that you have just paid closing costs and when you refinance, there will be another set of closing costs.

Last Friday night was an evening of celebration and giving as I hosted my annual client 'Thank You' party at Madelife Studio in Boulder. My amazing clients and friends danced to the Latin sounds of Los Bohemios as we raised over $6,800 for the New Life Children's Home. This wonderful organization brings food, supplies, medicine and hope to the children of Haiti who have been in the wake of devastating hurricanes that have torn through their country. These donations will help support the amazing work being done at the New Life Children's Home orphanage and rescue center in Port-au-Prince.

I would like to sincerely thank everyone who gave so generously. Happy Holidays.
