"The number of days a property is on the market is inching up, which can be attributed to the time of year, but is also driven by limited inventory," he adds.

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.
