I hope you all had a wonderful Spring Break week.  Take some time this week to look around and see if there are any small changes that you could make that might have a positive impact on your life. The little things matter. Maybe if you got up 30 minutes earlier you would find the time to get just a few more things done. Maybe if you changed your diet slightly you would feel better and have more energy. Maybe if you tried to be more in the moment your relationships would change with people. Maybe if you tried to do 5 nice things for others each and every day you would see great change. Nothing in this world is forced on us. Small changes create huge results.

 Make it a great day!

Boulder Co Homes March/2010 

      Real estate terminology has a tendency to change over time.  In the old days, title to property was transferred by a handshake and displayed in written form in an abstract.  An abstract was a historical record of a property passed from owner to owner.  Then came along legal contracts and title insurance, and the abstract, like the handshake, became a thing of the past.
