The Best Colorado Springs schools!

The Best Colorado Springs schools!
I was searching for my school choice blog post the other day and with website re-vamping, it's disappeared, so this important topic deserves my attention again... And yours!  So the title is a bit of a set-up, because well, we can't tell you which schools are "the best". It's against NAR ethics regarding steering and it's just not in your best...

2016 is shaping up to be one of the best years in real estate in many years... probably at least 10. We've all seen the stats about new Colorado residents.

Wonderful Vista Grande 4-level, 5991 Eldora Lane
