  1. As a Realtor since 1985 and an owner of Five Star Realty for 10 years I decided to join Keller Williams Partners in Colorado Springs in October. As Paul Goldenbogen employing broker explained the system and advantages and benefits of Keller Williams I am able to offer my client’s, I mad the move.
    I believe this is a good decision that I mad in order to keep fulfilling the American Dream for people to own a home. Now I am building my team and will branch out with Colorado Connection Group that I am forming where I will be offering Five Star Realty Service that my past clients gotten familiar with. Excited with more tools then ever, I am looking forward to get to know the new buyers and sellers of 2010 and as a relocation consultant sharing why our town Colorado Springs is the place to move to.
