2016 was filled with a lot of everything. I saw much success as a Realtor wanting to help others nd new homes or sell current homes. This is truly the best part of my job! Joe and I went to see my 93-year-old Aunt Phoebe in Lenox, MA. It’s an inspiration to see someone with such a zest for life. I plan to age as joyfully and gracefully as she has. A family visit to Sarasota was both fun and hard: my heart is with my mom and dad who celebrated their 68th anniversary and face ongoing health issues.

Sadly, we said goodbye to our dog Pebbles who almost made it to 17! We miss her each and every day. We also rescued a 12-year-old blind yellow Lab named Buddy - one of the sweetest and kindest souls we’ve ever known. The JRTs Norman and Frankie

A few weeks ago I thought to myself there is no way I can write an end of the year letter, that is until I changed my perspective. There are always two sides of every coin. At first glance, my beloved doxie, Matilda, had a tumor. John was laid off from his job after 15 years. My son Tommy had sepsis in April, healed and then a few weeks later fell from a four-story balcony. I stayed six weeks by my son’s side helping him recover. How can I say I am blessed? Matilda’s tumor was benign, John is much happier with his new company, and my son Tommy is recovering better than ever expected and living in Colorado with his amazing girlfriend, Cara. My other two sons, Chris and Tyler are loving life. Chris was even inducted into his college hall of

Greg Smith & Cyndy Hinkelman-Smith

2016 has been a wonderful year for The Smith family. We were so fortunate to experience the magic and marvel of the Galapagos Islands and the mountains of Ecuador with our niece, Maddy, in July. Beauty and adventure were also found during our June raft trip on the Green River in Utah, and on our trip to the Paci c Northwest over spring break to check out colleges for Callie. Wait, what? Yes, Callie is in her senior year at BHS (& Sr. class president!) so the reality that the house will be a bit quieter (and neater) a year from now is helping us appreciate how precious our time with her is. College prep, playing soccer, hiking, skiing, and spending time with her boyfriend, Liam, have kept Callie pretty darn busy. Greg continues to enjoy

It should be noted that I am in no way an expert on sports or football.

The Past

Coming to the University of Colorado, football was not at the top of my list of reasons I wanted to attend. I knew we weren't the greatest, but I will never forget those first days at CU where we were taught the fight song and watched Ralphie run. It didn’t matter that we weren’t a top team, I already loved my school and the Buffs. My friends and I would joke that CU already had too much going for it, the campus, the weather, the people, the town, it was all too perfect to also have a top football team.

The Present

Fast forward to 2016 and I never would have guessed we are where we are. With each additional win, the excitement and

RE/MAX Alliance is honored to be partnering with New Story Charity to build homes in Haiti. A new home provides more than shelter for these families. It provides hope, opportunities and ultimately a new story.

1.5 Million Left Homeless

A series of devastating natural disasters has decimated countless homes in Haiti. The 2010 Earthquake killed over 200,000 people and left 1.5 million without homes. Temporary tents were erected as a short-term fix. Now, years later tens of thousands remain in these temporary shelters living on dirt floors with no doors, sewer, or running water. The conditions are downright dangerous.

Tragedy Strikes Again

While In October 2016 another 500 people were killed when Hurricane Matthew collided with the island

You are finally ready to sell your home. Your first decision is to list with an agent or go it alone. There are benefits and drawbacks to both options, so what do you choose? Before you make a decision you should be informed about these key factors:

Choosing The Right Price For Your Home

Price is one of the most important components in selling your home. Decisions on price are complex and require not only past sales information but future forecasts as well to ultimately arrive at the right one. Pricing is imperative, too high and your home sits on the market or too low and you may leave money on the table. In certain instances reducing the price of a home that has sat on the market can make potential buyers wonder if something is wrong with the
