In the last 24 months, I’ve run across several who have lost on all three fronts. Since the tension point of the bubble in 2007, we have all endured incredible areas of distress in our lives. My kids have told me stories of friends who had to change schools and delay school due to financial stress. We are all in the same boat. Every foreclosure in your neighborhood is impactful on your own home’s value. It is clear at this point few if any homes reside in a community that has not experienced a “short sale”, a foreclosure sale or a deed in lieu to the lender during this window of time.What I would like to address here is simple. If you, someone you know or even a neighbor looks to be in financial trouble, there are remedies for the financial burden of home ownership. Recent legislation makes loan modifications, short sales to the lender and even the deed in lieu of foreclosure process much more palatable. Please, pick up the phone and call me. Even if the property or party is in another state, there are remedies. We have a wealth of services to assist. You are not alone in this game of life.If you just need a more positive outlook on things to come, take a look at this list of great things happening in and around Denver!What’s News @ the Kentwood CompaniesThis is a really exciting time for the Kentwood Companies.

The name "
is a trademark of Google. Google uses an algorithm of several different components to determine what your page rank is. The ranking is based from 1 to 10, 10 being the highest you can get. There are only a handful of 10’s that I have ever seen. One of them is www.cnn.com, and obviously Google gives themselves a 10. You can easily check page rank on any site by just installing the google toolbar here: http://www.google.com/toolbar/ie/index.html , in the toolbar it actually displays the page rank as you navigate through the web. Check out the page rank of your site and keep track of it today!” Family Happenings Dee is still busy with her high school lacrosse team. So far, still undefeated. Caroline is busy at work.
