Tony Marietta, who is, just a great friend of mine and a couple of other people who I had tremendous respect for in the industry, I discovered one day that they were all Metro Brokers and so I did a little bit of research and I found that the most experienced and most talented brokers in Colorado were Metro Brokers.

The knowledge that you have to have nowadays to do real estate properly is extensive and you have to keep updating it. I attend at least one class a month to do that and I feel it's important that I treat it as a profession, so that when people come to me they know that like when they go to their doctor or when they go to their accountant or their CPA, they are getting somebody who is knowledgeable and up to date on what is going on to advise them.
