As the owner of Mile High Nutrition and Fitness in Denver, Colorado, Alexander “Alex” Garbiso visits clients in their homes and provides individualized workout routines as well as nutritional guidance. As a certified trainer, he has experience working with three different companies helping clients achieve their fitness goals. Although he has a strong background in fitness, Alex Garbiso is currently interested in embarking on a real estate career.

When starting out working in real estate, specific skills should be learned and developed to become successful. One of the skills you should possess as a Realtor is the ability to negotiate. When you list a home for a client or if you are helping a client purchase a home, negotiating will almost always be involved. To best serve your clients’ interests, you must learn to know when you should hold firm to terms and prices, and equally important, how to maintain firm positions and still conclude the transaction.

An additional skill is being able to motivate others and come up with ideas, such as those about a home being considered and how the potential new owner could improve it. A Realtor shows houses to clients, but clients are often difficult to please, and can look at many houses without showing much interest in any of them. This is when an effective Realtor will speak up, putting forth ideas and suggestions for changes as to how the client can make the property their own. A Realtor who can improvise in this way will be well on their way to a successful career.

Alexander Garbiso is a personal trainer based in Aurora, Colorado, where he owns and manages Mile High Nutrition and Fitness as an independent contractor. Alexander Garbiso is also interested in becoming involved in real estate and pays close attention to real estate trends in Colorado.

The tiny house movement is steadily gaining momentum, in part due to the media attention given by several television shows – but also because it is a smart economic alternative to paying the costs of larger homes, which many young people cannot afford today.

Colorado Springs has recently been dubbed the “tiny house capital of the United States,” in part because it is home to the Tumbleweed Tiny House Co., the largest manufacturer of tiny houses in the country. The company also held the Tiny House Jamboree expo last year and plans to host it again this August. However, there are many cities contending to be the tiny house capital, including Seattle, Austin, and Asheville, North Carolina.

Tiny Houses are generally 500 square feet or less, compared to the standard minimum house size of 1,500 square feet, and many of these small homes are on wheels and mobile. The homes appeal to those looking for both a cheap and ultra-simple lifestyle.
