This Colorado Snow Reminds Us Of An Old Story From Michigan

 December 8 - 6:00 PM. It started to snow. The first snow of the season and the wife and I took our cocktails and sat for hours by the window watching the huge soft flakes drift down from heaven. It looked like a Grandma Moses Print. So romantic we felt like newlyweds again. I love snow!

December 9 - We woke to a beautiful blanket of crystal white snow covering every inch of the landscape. What a fantastic sight! Can there be a more lovely place in the Whole World? Moving here was the best idea I've ever had. Shoveled for the first time in years and felt like a boy again. I did both our driveway and the sidewalks. This afternoon the snowplow came along and covered up the sidewalks and closed in the driveway, so I got to shovel again. What a perfect life.

December 12 - The sun has melted all our lovely snow. Such a disappointment. My neighbor tells me not to worry, we'll definitely have a white Christmas. No snow on Christmas would be awful! Bob says we'll have so much snow by the end of winter, that I'll never want to see snow again. l don't think that's possible. Bob is such a nice man, I'm glad he's our neighbor.

December 14 - Snow lovely snow! 8" last night. The temperature dropped to -20. The cold makes everything sparkle so. The wind took my breath way,but I warmed up by shoveling the driveway and sidewalks. This is the life! The snowplow came back this afternoon and buried everything again. I didn't realize I would have to do quite this much shoveling, but I'll certainly get back in shape this way. I wish l wouldn't huff and puff so.

December 15 - 20 inches forecasted. Sold my van and bought a 4x4 Blazer. Bought snow tires for the wife's car and 2 extra shovels. Stocked the freezer. The wife wants a wood stove in case the electricity goes out.I think that's silly. We aren't in Alaska, after all.

December 16 - Ice storm this morning. Fell on my ass on the ice in the driveway putting down salt. Hurt like hell. The wife laughed for an hour, Which I think was very cruel.

December 17 - Still way below freezing. Roads are too icy to go anywhere. Electricity was off for 5 hours. I had to pile the blankets on to stay warm. Nothing to do but stare at the wife and try not to irritate her. Guess I should've bought a wood stove, but won't admit it to her. God I hate it when she's right. I can't believe I'm freezing to death in my own living room.

December 20 - Electricity's back on, but had another 14" of the damn stuff last night. More shoveling. Took all day. Damn snowplow came by twice. Tried to find a neighbor kid to shovel, but they said they're too busy playing hockey. I think they're lying. Called the only hardware store around to see about buying a snow blower and they're out. Might have another shipment in March. I think they're lying. Bob says I have to shovel or the city will have it done and bill me. I think he's lying.

December 22 - Bob was right about a white Christmas because 13 more inches of the white stuff fell today, and it's so cold it probably won't melt till August. Took me 45 minutes to get all dressed up to go out to shovel and then I had to pee. By the time I got undressed, peed and dressed again. I was too tired to shovel. Tried to hire Bob who has a plow on his truck for the rest of the winter; but he says he's too busy. I think the a**hole is lying.

December 23 - Only 2" of snow today. And it warmed up to 0. The wife wanted me to decorate the front of the house this morning. What is she nuts!!!Why didn't she tell me to do that a month ago? She says she did but I think she's lying.

December 24 - 6". Snow packed so hard by snowplow, l broke the shovel. Thought I was having a heart attack. If I ever catch the son of a bitch who drives that snow plow I'll drag him through the snow by his you know what and beat him to death with my broken shovel. I know he hides around the corner and waits for me to finish shoveling and then he comes down the street at 100 miles an hour and throws snow all over where I've just been. Tonight the wife wanted me to sing Christmas carols with her and open our presents, but I was too busy watching for the damn snowplow.

December 25 - Merry fricking Christmas! 20 more inches of the damn snow tonight. Snowed in. The idea of shoveling makes my blood boil. God I hate the snow! Then the snowplow driver came by asking for a donation and I hit him over the head with my shovel. The wife says I have a bad attitude. I think she's a fricking idiot. If I have to watch "It's A Wonderful Life" one more time, I'm going to stuff her into the microwave.

December 26 - Still snowed in. Why the hell did I ever move here? It was all HER idea. She's really getting on my nerves.

December 27 - Temperature dropped to -30 and the pipes froze, plumber came after 14 hours of waiting for him, he only charged me 1,400 to replace all my pipes.

December 28 - Warmed up to above -20. Still snowed in. THE BI**H is driving me crazy!!!

December 29 - 10 more inches. Bob says I have to shovel the roof or it could cave in. That's the silliest thing I ever heard. How dumb does he think I am?

December 30 - Roof caved in. I beat up the snow plow driver he is now suing me for a million dollars not only the beating I gave him but also for trying to shove the broken snow shovel up his *&%. The wife went home to her mother. 9" predicted.

December 31 - I set fire to what's left of the house. No more shoveling.

January 8 - Feel so good. I just love those little white pills they keep giving me. Why am I tied to the bed?

Historic Colorado Willowcroft Farm Sells for $1,430,000.00 at Auction.

The Wolf family grew up there. Many people from all over the world had visited there. Willowcroft Farm was a little slice of heaven, to many people, right in the center of the Denver Metro area. Cynthia Wolf or “Cee” as most people knew her had passed on. Her barns and corrals were unused. Weeds grew in pens previously inhabited by miniature horses and donkeys. The three remaining heirs of the Wolf Estate all had their own homes and their own lives. They all agreed that it was impossible for them to maintain Willowcroft the way it should be so they decided to sell it.

How do you sell a historic, nine-acre farm surrounded by multi-million dollar homes and a developed city? How do you arrive at a price for a property that one person thinks should be bulldozed and another thinks should be preserved forever? The estate had an appraiser value the land to answer some of these questions. The appraiser’s answer was that the property was worth somewhere around $800,000.00. Several family members thought it had to be worth more. They were also concerned about the contents remaining on the property. They needed to effectively market and sell all of the estate’s property, in a short amount of time, for its current true market value.

The Personal Representative of the Estate enlisted the help of Rocky Mountain Estate Brokers Inc. The Auctioneers and Broker with RMEB have been conducting successful estate auctions in Colorado for over twenty-five years. They presented a plan to the Wolf Estate to sell Willowcroft Farm and all its contents at Public Auction in one day. The heirs liked what they heard. RMEB developed a marketing plan that accentuated the history of Willowcroft Farm as well as its development potential. Through a combination of print media, direct mail, signage, web sites, email blasts and press releases, RMEB’s Auctioneers were able to get the word out about the Auction of Willowcroft farm in a huge way.

Friday, April 3, 2009 was a beautiful spring day at Willowcroft Farm. All of the marketing RMEB conducted the last 30 days brought a huge crowd to the scheduled afternoon preview. People came to look at the real estate and buildings. They came to look at the antique furnishings that would be sold the next day. They came to see if there was a feed trough or saddle pad they could use with their horses. They came to see it all, by the hundreds. As the afternoon progressed, RMEB’s staff noticed that the large clouds to the west were growing larger. The weatherman said to expect up to twelve inches of snow by Saturday morning. Saturday morning. The Willowcroft Farm Auction was scheduled to start at 11:10 AM Saturday morning.

The Auctioneers and staff of Rocky Mountain Estate Brokers Inc. sprung into action. Large canopies were arranged to cover the massive front yard where the auction would be conducted. Merchandise was moved into covered storage. Extra staff members were called to assist with the storm preparations. David P. Whitley Lead Auctioneer stated, “Old Man Winter can rear his head one more time but the Auction must go on.” RMEB did everything in its power that afternoon and clear into the evening to make sure Saturday’s Auction would still be a success.
Saturday morning came early for RMEB’s Auctioneers and staff. The weatherman had been wrong and Old Man Winter only dumped about six inches of sloppy, wet snow. The first order of business was to shovel the lawn. Yes, you read that correctly. To try to give all the auction attendees a more comfortable Auction experience RMEB shoveled the lawn. The tents and canopies where raised. Hot coffee was brewed but none of the staff had time to take one sip. They were too busy preparing for the crowds, which were already arriving. Somehow, they pulled it all off. The audio and video equipment was assembled and placed to make each bidder’s view as good as possible. Auction catalogs and Property Information Packets were distributed. The PA system was connected and David P. Whitley Auctioneer started to make the announcements. It was Saturday morning. It was Auction Time.

Many people think an Auction just happens. Every Auction that Rocky Mountain Estate Brokers conducts takes weeks of planning. The Willowcroft Farm Auction was no different. There was a very valuable piece of real estate to be sold today. There were also valuable antiques, art work and even pots and pans to sell. RMEB organized and cataloged the auction so that all the highest value items would be sold in the first two hours of the Auction. People would come brave the snow, wind and cold but few people would brave it all day. After the best items were sold, they planned to sell the real estate. When the real estate was finished, the Auction would continue with small items, box lots and books.

At 11:10 AM on Saturday, April 4, 2009, David P. Whitley, Lead Auctioneer for Rocky Mountain Estate Brokers Inc. and RMEB Realty called the crowd to order and started the auction. He sold small antiques, paintings and furniture to an onsite crowd that numbered in the hundreds. Internet bidders from around the country also bid and purchased items through RMEB’s live internet broadcast of the Auction. The wind and snow made it a downright chilly Colorado spring day. RMEB’s staff could see that the crowd would not be able to brave the cold all day. Fifteen minutes into the Auction a second Auctioneer went to the barns and started to sell farm items in a second auction ring. This doubled the speed at which RMEB was able to sell items and made the buyers happy as two very different kinds of merchandise were be sold at the same time.

In short order, all of the items at the barns had new owners. Chairs, dining tables and paintings fell under the Auctioneer’s gavel and went to proud new owners. It was now time to sell the real estate. Willowcroft Farm was on the auction block. Auctioneer David Whitley opened the auction. A bidder represented by a real estate broker placed the opening bid of $860,000.00. Whitley called for and received a bid of $875,000.00, which was soon topped, by another bid of $900,000.00. It became evident there were three people who wanted to own Willowcroft Farm. RMEB Auctioneer and Ringwoman Casey Giddings moved towards the first bidder while Ringmen Kevin Rutter and Calvin Ogren approached the other two bidders. The auction was on.

Ringmen act as an extension of the auctioneer. They get “up close” and personal with a bidder. They let the Auctioneer know when a bidder has placed a bid. They assist the bidder in understanding the process, what the current bid is and what the next bid asked for is. They confirm when the bidder has the current bid and when the bidder needs to place a higher bid.

RMEB has some of the best ringmen and women in the Auction business. Casey, Calvin and Kevin each had a bidder to work with. Auctioneer Whitley continued to ask for and received higher bids. Soon the bidding had reached $1,200,000.00. The tension throughout the several hundred people in attendance was evident. It was like the last two minutes of a tied Super Bowl. No one can explain the feeling the two remaining bidders must have felt. Both wanted to win. Both had already stated they would not bid again. Whitley continued to call for a bid of $1,225,000.00. “Yes” was the exclamation from two of RMEB’s ringmen. The bid was now $1,225,000.00 and Whitley asked for more.

Everyone comes to an auction with an idea of what he or she thinks an item is worth. Properly advertised and marketed public auctions are one of the best ways to discover the current market price of an item. The opinions of others affect a person’s idea of worth. Auctions are open and transparent. They require a potential buyer to take action. A person may attend an auction with an idea of the value of a particular item. Everyone knows the true value of an item after the item is sold to the highest bidder. Whitley asked for a Million Two Fifty and “Yes,” was the response from ringwoman Giddings.

One bidder is winning and one is losing. The lead always changes. One Million Two Seventy-Five was the call. He shook his head. He said no. He wanted this property but he was already way past his perceived value. RMEB’s ringmen continued to ask him to increase the bid. After several responses of “no” and “I am done” he walked off, only to be followed by RMEB’s ring men. Who knows what they said, but when Whitley asked again for a Million Two Seventy-Five, the answer this time was yes!

The lead had changed again. Whitley called for a Million Three. She wanted it. They wanted it. The bid was already more than she had expected it to be. She said no before and then had bid again. Giddings asked her for one more bid at $1,300,000.00 and the answer was no. She asked her again as Whitley called “All in, all done”. Her answer this time was yes. She bid $1,300,000.00. Whitley accepted the bid and immediately asked for a Million Three and a Quarter. It was evident to everyone that the winning bid had been placed. The other bidders said no. This time they meant it. Whitley called for an increase in the bids and seeing none, declared a new owner of Willowcroft Farm.

In four minutes, RMEB sold Willowcroft Farm for a total price, including buyer’s premium, of $1,430,000.00. The winning bidder was happy. The large crowd applauded. The other bidders even appeared happy for the new owner. There were no contingencies. There was no further negotiation. The contract was signed and a closing was scheduled for thirty days later. Not missing a beat, Whitley thanked all the bidders and called for the next lot. There was still more to sell.

Auction Sellers Sometimes Are The Best Auction Buyers

Most auctioneers, who have been in business for any length of time, realize that what an auctioneer truly does is solve problems. Few people call an auctioneer when everything is rosy. People call an auctioneer because they need something sold in a definite amount of time. They may need money quickly. They may need to clear out a warehouse or manufacturing center due to the sale of the facility. They may be dealing with the estate of a parent or loved one. They may be in a dire financial situation and need to liquidate assets to raise cash. Whatever the reason, most people who call an auctioneer have a problem.

We at Rocky Mountain Estate Brokers Inc. pride ourselves on being superior problem solvers. When a client contacts us we listen to the client’s needs and develop a solution that meets those needs. It seems that Michael Jackson had a problem. His representative contacted a noted Los Angeles auction company to arrange for an auction. They packed and loaded his items. They moved his items to another location and then began the painstaking process of creating a five-volume auction catalog listing everything from his lone glove to the massive gates from Neverland.

We are good at correctly identifying and cataloging items. It is our job, as auctioneers, to represent the goods to be sold in the best light. We repair, clean, detail, polish & paint. Many times we turn the seller’s “sow’s ear” into a “silver purse”. It seems this happened with the Prince of Pop. Now he wants all his stuff back. Check the story out on E Online by clicking here.

This same thing has happened to us in our over 20 years of auction business. Many times the item a seller needs to sell has grown old in his or her eyes. However, just wait until we shine it up and start to market it. The magic that seller once saw in the item returns. We have to caution our sellers to beware of this. It is still the same item they wanted to sell. We are good at presenting it in a new light; a light that attracts attention and buyers. After all, we are problem solvers. Now if I could just find that matching glove.

Auctioneers Attend Colorado Convention in Denver

Rocky Mountain Estate Brokers Inc. Auctioneers and managers recently attended the Colorado Auctioneers Association Convention held in Denver, Colorado. While there, they attended seminars on auction methods and continuing auction education. National experts in their areas of expertise presented these seminars. Real Estate auctions are a hot topic. There were several opportunities to learn about new, cost efficient ways to market and sell real estate at auction. David Whitley, RMEB CEO and lead Auctioneer said, “As the economy and real estate market has weakened, we have been inundated with requests from people to conduct real estate auctions. We are always looking for more ways to effectively market and sell real estate in a short period.

A nationally acclaimed author and speaker presented two seminars on time management and organization. Auctioneer Casey Giddings stated, “Our clients keep us incredibly busy. Time management is one of our most important tools in the auction business.” Casey also participated in the Colorado Champion Auctioneer Contest. She made everyone at RMEB very proud of her auctioneering skills.

Everyone at RMEB believes in constantly learning so that we can provide superior service to our clients. The Colorado Auctioneers Association 2009 Convention was not only educational for us it was fun. We live, breathe and sleep (when we get to sleep!) the auction business. We look forward to meeting you and discussing how we can solve your problems.
