According tot he Five Star website, 'As part of an in-depth research process real estate agents are evaluated by their customers and real estate industry professionals based on customer service, integrity, market knowledge, communication and negotiation skills, closing preparation, helping you find the right home, marketing the home being sold, and overall satisfaction.'

That's right kids (and grownups), go play inthe street!
This Saturday, August 14th, from 10:00 am to 2:00 pm, Denver's 23rd Avenue will be closed to auto traffic from City Park to Stapleton. Denver residents are pretty used to street closures for construction, but this time the street is being closed so we can get out and play!
The celebration is called Viva Streets, and it is being sponsored by LiveWell Colorado and Bike Denver. Instead of cars, 23rd Ave will be taken over by bikers and pedestrians wandering down the street to enjoy parades, food vendors, musicians, and more. Here's a map of the 'party zone' with markers of what is happening along the route.

What do you think of QR codes?
QR codes are those square barcodes that are popping up everywhere these days. They are in magazine ads, store price tags, and increasingly on real estate signs.
Many Realtors have replaced color flyers on sign boxes with QR codes that allow consumers to go straight to detailed info (and sometimes even virtual tours) about the property. Reasons include cost savings (color brochures are expensive) and providing more information to consumers.
What do you think of QR codes? Have you tried using them? Do you find them useful? Do you think you would use them if you were househunting?
