Thanks to all of you who voted WK Real Estate the Best Real Estate Company in the Times-Call Readers’ Choice Awards. I think this is the 15th consecutive year for WK Real Estate to be chosen. That’s one of the many reasons I continue to work as a REALTOR® in this great, locally owned and operated real estate company. WK Real Estate has been in Boulder for over 45 years. We know our market and love living here.

I recently attended the ribbon cutting ceremony for the Micah Project. The Micah Project will provide permanent housing for disabled, veterans and low income individuals. The Micah Project is part of The Inn Between. The Inn Between is one of my favorite local organizations as it helps local residents with a hand up through transitional housing and other assistance programs. The Micah Project is amazing in that a number of local churches, organizations and individuals have come together to make a difference in our community to provide permanent housing for up to 14 people in need. It is inspirational to see how our community has come together for this project. I am so grateful to live in a community where there are such wonderful people donating time, funds, and skills to help one another.
If you’d like to know more about The Inn Between and/or the Micah Project, please visit their website at www.theinnbetween.org. If you’d like to donate, in any way, please do so.
As we enter the new year, folks thinking about buying or selling start to get more serious. There are a few common “myths” that both Buyers and Sellers have when purchasing or selling a home.

I don’t know what age you are. But, most of us plan for, and think about retirement from a relatively early age. Most of my friends talk about it as we all move towards what is a traditional retirement age. I, however, do not plan to really retire. While I don’t want to be tied to a 9-5, M-F job, I enjoy working. I enjoy the time with customers, co-workers, the feeling of productivity and accomplishment. I believe being mentally engaged is imperative to a longer and healthier life, and particularly to our mental wellbeing. There are many ways to be involved – volunteer work, taking care of grandchildren etc. I love the article below because it recognizes what older members of our society have to contribute. What a fantastic accumulation of knowledge, wisdom, and experience our seniors have to offer and share. Yes, having time to play is important too. I for one, want the play time to integrated into what I love to do most, whatever that may be, through mentoring, sharing knowledge, etc. The premise of the article is a cultural shift for Americans, but a good one, in my opinion.

Marc Freedman is not here to give advice on how to squirrel away dollars and cents for a leisurely retirement. He doesn’t want to talk about 401(k)’s, I.R.A.s, or stocks and bonds. Instead, he is asking us all to dig deeper — to entirely rethink our latter years.
Mr. Freedman — the president and chief executive officer of Encore.org, a nonprofit group that aims to tap the skills and experience of people in midlife and beyond to improve communities...Read More
