Our latest installment of Selley Group TV:

Cherise Selley, Broker/Owner of Selley Group Real Estate, LLC, continues the series about story-telling and its deeply rooted impact upon Colorado Springs Real Estate Properties.  According to Cherise, each room of every home contains a myriad of stories. Not just stories about the construction of a certain property, but stories that put a spotlight on the families who have lived there previously.  

What’s peculiar about this particular video segment? Two salient points stand out…  

First, Cherise had the distinct pleasure to meet a few of the family members who were in charge of the estate.  Their clear recollection of the legacy of the family, whose roots come from Ireland, were visible throughout the home.  The visual style of retro living combined with meticulous cleanliness garnered the hallways and rooms throughout this story-telling Colorado Springs residence.  The legacy of the home spoke life-giving messages about the importance of organized living, as well as having an emphasis regarding the value of family living. In Cherise’s opinion, one could sense the history of a well-kept home by merely sitting at the kitchen table and taking it all in.

Second, you can write your own story even if you purchase a home, for which another family has lived in before.  Stories are ongoing and ever-changing. To create a new visual story represents a wave of transformation. And oftentimes this sense of creating something new from something older or retro requires the experience of others to help put the ideas into practical action.  Our group of Colorado Springs Realtors are flooded with design ideas and as part of our services, we love to help others write their own visual stories into their next home purchases. Visual stories create foundations for which the living portion of life can be effectively achieved.

Hope you enjoy listening to this video about real estate stories and feel free to follow us with more Selley Group TV segments which will bring to light the deeper aspects of Colorado Springs Real Estate.

Thank you again.  If you have any further questions or need assistance, then please do not hesitate to contact our group of Colorado Springs Realtors by calling 719-598-5101.

2019 President of Peak Producers, Cherise Selley, emceed an outstanding evening on October 3, 2019 with those who are top agents of The Peak Producers organization, then conducts a short interview with Travis Williams of The Springs Rescue Mission.

Peak Producers is comprised of a selection of the top 10% of Colorado Springs Realtors who are connected through philanthropic endeavors with The Springs Rescue Mission and Dream Centers – Mary’s Home on behalf of the Colorado Springs community.  For the year 2019, The Peak Producers have set a goal to raise $100,000 for these two very worthy causes. The idea is not that these funds are to be given out of pity for those who have faced some formidable obstacles in life, such as homelessness, drug addiction and abuse, just to mention a few.  No… these funds are given to these organizations to help “lend a hand-up” for those who are trying to get a fresh start in life.

For the past 4 to 5 years, there has been a business/charitable relationship between The Peak Producers and The Springs Rescue Mission.  And the rewards are found in the heart-gripping stories of redemption, in which people who have been homeless and addicted to drugs are now on their feet, working and drug-free.  These are the kind of stories that bring great rewards for anyone who participates in these kinds of charities. And for Colorado Springs Realtors, especially since “home” is part of their career purpose, it goes without saying that stories like these, ones of transformation from a place of hopelessness, generates great rewards of the heart for The Peak Producer members.

Please listen carefully to this particular episode and see how these organizations are really making a difference within the Colorado homeless community.  Stories… these are authentic stories about real change!Feel free to contact Cherise Selley or any of the other top Colorado Springs Realtors of Selley Group Real Estate, LLC, 719-598-5101, selleygroup.com, if you have additional questions.  Or, for more information or to support two of Colorado Springs’ most effective charities doing good deed, please visit The Springs Rescue Mission and Dream Center’s Mary’s Home.

*The home in which this video was filmed is NOW LISTED! Take a look!*

It’s really easy to fall into the trap of believing that selling real estate property is much like the crazy things you might watch on television, such as “Million Dollar Listing” or “Flipping Houses” or something similar to a Chip and Joanna Gaines makeover series.  But from the perspectives of these two excellent Colorado Springs Real Estate Agents, there are many other layers about being top Colorado Springs Realtors that goes far beyond the glitz and glamour of reality television, the “real” real estate stories are often more about the people than the property.

Undeniably, being a top Colorado Springs Realtor incorporates all the facets of knowledge, skill, and a complete understanding about the transaction process, as well as having empirical experience within the real estate industry, just to touch the tip of the iceberg of what it takes to rise to the top of this profession.

Cherise Selley and Judy Steenland have combined real estate experience of 45 years under their belts.  Each of them has encountered all kinds of people, all kinds of residential properties and designs and floorplans and views, all kinds of inspection objections, all kinds of creative financing, and basically, all kinds of unimaginable questions, in which they must pursue and investigate so that they might help to make the right home purchase occur, if even possible.  In essence, there is a TON of work that happens behind the scenes.  

Think of this… When you’re listening to a song artist perform a lovely song, it’s natural to fall in love with his or her voice regarding that particular recording.  But listen more carefully.  What about the not so obvious that makes everything else come together, such as the orchestra playing, the background vocals harmonizing, the hours of practice happening with little to no acknowledgement, the in-studio scheduling that has to get everyone together within an hour time slot, the administrative work of financing and marketing and social media…? All of this effort to hear one song.  I think you get the point – it requires all of this effort to have a successful real estate closing.

Selling Colorado Springs Real Estate is a business.  Nonetheless, besides squarely placing the emphasis on the business side of things, there is also a human element to consider.  And the human element cannot be separated from the business perspective. Simply put, selling Colorado Springs Real Estate is also a people business.

That’s why this Selley Group Video Series is focused on peoples’ real estate stories within real estate market.  Our top Colorado Springs Realtors believe that people represent the true-life blood of the industry. 

Cherise Selley and Judy Steenland have a treasure chest full of heart-gripping stories about why people either buy or sell Colorado Springs residential properties. Some narratives are rooted in brute sacrifice and suffering, while other stories unfold various ways of how some people perceive value and profit from the types of homes they choose to either buy or sell.  

Regardless, the stories aren’t exactly scripted nor are these made for television entertainment.  No… the reality is that the story about peoples’ lives pack richness about life and carry meaning for everyone who is involved with the real estate transaction.  And for many Colorado Springs Realtors, it’s these people stories that bring an unspoken reward about their identity and purpose for being a Colorado Springs Realtor.

When you’ve practiced real estate for 45 years (combined experience) or so, like Cherise Selley and Judy Steenland have, then you have the discernment to reflect on what’s the most important aspects of finding the right home for certain people, so that they can continue to write their own stories about life and to pass this valuable information to their family generations to come…

Continue to watch and listen to Cherise and Judy, as they dive even deeper into the meaning of these stories about peoples’ participation within the real estate market.  There are plenty of real estate stories here — There are lessons that we all can glean from this content.

Within this growing economy of Colorado Springs Real Estate, there are plenty investors who are always looking for innovative ways to prudently invest their capital within our local real estate market. And over the past 5 years especially, the concept of investing in short-term rental properties, rather than long-term rentals, has caught fire within Colorado Springs.

Certainly, there are pros and cons between short-term and long-term rental strategies, as well as weighing the inherent risks of acquiring any type of rental income property. So … Cherise Selley, a Colorado Springs Top Realtor, decided to venture out of the residential market for a moment to interview Evan Wilburn, Owner of HOSTE, a management company for the Airbnb industry, about his perspectives regarding short-term rental properties.

Evan Wilburn, in which HOSTE manages 80 short-term rental properties, explains that there really isn’t a saturation rate when it comes to the short-term rental market within Colorado Springs. In other words, demand is clearly keeping up with the supply, and making an investment within Colorado Springs coincides with the growth of the population, as well as the growing travel to this part of the United States.

Colorado Springs has been ranked #3 as the Best Cities to live in the United States by US News. The appeal is quite obvious if you visit here in person. The outdoor beauty of the Colorado mountains will most likely mesmerize you – not to mention that Colorado Springs has a low cost of living, low unemployment numbers and offers an increasing amount of recreational and entertainment options for all who visit and/or who reside in this place of around 700K population.

The future for Colorado Springs, branded as “Olympic City,” is very optimistic as expected population growth numbers, and economic development statistics show great opportunity for all who are interested to make Colorado Springs their home landing pad.

And regarding those who are simply traveling to Colorado Springs and who are scrolling the internet to find a short-term property to rent through Airbnb, these guests tend to look for certain items on their personal checklists about the properties for which they plan to rent.

Evan Wilburn of HOSTE explains that there is tremendous value about the guest experience that should not be disrupted when it comes to short-term rentals. He states that there is a growing list that attracts visitors to short-term rentals versus other options of attaining overnight and/or weekly stays.

New is the recommendation for a short-term rental. It seems as if people prefer new construction with new furniture, creative designs, modern kitchens and bathrooms over the older traditional homes. Views, hot tubs, pet-friendliness, and property uniqueness help to define the search for value that is applicable for short-term rental customers.

And besides what you can see with the human eye about new short-term rental properties, the unseen parts about the business, including service, behind the scenes management and administrative work, are handled by HOSTE – a topnotch short-term property management in Colorado Springs.

Colorado Springs Realtor, Cherise Selley, and Custom New Home Builder, Brad Ausmus with Alliance Homes, LLC, discuss some of the idiosyncrasies about what it takes to build luxury custom home construction in Colorado Springs, Colorado.

Before diving into some of the questions about designs, floorplans, land and building fees, budgets and so forth, I found one particular comment within this video profoundly important when thinking about the construction of a new home.  Did you realize that there are between 60,000 to 90,000 pieces regarding what’s actually part of new home construction?  Let’s think about this for a second.  Hypothetically speaking, if your selected builder does everything 99% perfectly right about building your new home, then this means that there still could be 60 to 90 mistakes made to your new home construction?

This simply indicates the importance of finding the right builder for your next Colorado Springs Home, especially if this home is custom-built.  Please allow me to introduce Brad Ausmus of Alliance Builders, LLC. This man works miracles for creating the optimal spaces for living within his floorplan design.  A custom home builder for 41 years, Brad has seen it all throughout all of the real estate cycles and has successfully weathered all of the storms, only to grow more expertly upon his skill and craftsmanship regarding custom new home construction.What actually motivates Brad to continue his work as a custom homebuilder?  He explains that customizing the floorplan design connects the customer between the actual design and the budget prepared for such a project.  Making art out of floorplan design and offering this gift to a new homeowner brings unimaginable satisfaction.
