Selling NY

It's been many a year since I was in Manhattan while Rita has never made it to the Big Apple.

One of the delights of the Spring has been HGTV's Selling New York. The Kleiers are fascinating: beautiful young daughters and one remarkable mother while they fit right in to the properties they stage, exhibit, and market. The family-oriented Kleiers complement and contrast with CORE. Each episode different agents take on the challenge of sale-and-buy clients, attracting targeted sellers, and, the biggest challenge -- making the sale. I suppose that Denver has its own, though much, much smaller, versions of the Kleiers and CORENYC, and their upscale clientèle. Today we drove by numerous large mountain meadow homes of the Fraser River Valley - sale sign after sign. It would be nice, I guess.

The casual environment of suburbs and geoscience software in Denver (our environment for the past 13 yrs), even with our travels (Alaska, Dubai, San Francisco, Dallas, Winter Park), can't compare with the lofty world of high-price co-ops in New York, country homes in rural Connecticut, and condos in Boca Raton. I don't even own a three-piece suit, let alone a two-piece with wool sweater vest under a London Fog (or, perhaps an even more upscale coat).
