6th Annual Fall Fiesta Video Recap!!

An evening filled with tacos & margaritas to go, socially distanced laughter, & an epic live music performance from Andy Thorn, Adam Aijala, Jeremy Garrett, & Greg Garrison.

Modern Mortgage Summit 2020: Global Virtual Event

Brian was honored when asked to speak at the very first Modern Mortgage Summit!

Though the event did have to take place online this year, the stream was filled with eager, excited mortgage professionals providing valuable key information for scaling your business.

A special thanks to Win by Noon for hosting as well as inviting Brian to speak! Already looking forward to next years!!

The event was aired globally and can be accessed via a one-year on demand pass. Check it out here.

We’ll Say It; The World is Weird Right Now

With COVID-19 taking over 2020,  it’s safe to say that things are a little different around here right now. Our quarterly-held Buyers & Brews have been put on hold, Fall Fiesta 2020 is doing its absolute best to be a possibility, and with social distancing protocols, almost all of our closings have been taking place virtually. We certainly miss interacting with you all face-to-face and greatly look forward to the day that we can all safely come together again!

In the meantime, we wanted to let you all know that though things may look different this year, we are still here to support you every step of the way along your home buying or refinance journey. Things may be weird right now, but hopefully we can get through them together, & perhaps with a much-needed laugh or two.


The Brian Manning Team

Our 5th Annual Fall Fiesta was a Success!

Thanks to your continued support, trust, and referrals we have officially outgrown our usual venue. This year we imagined The Brian Manning Team Client & Friends Appreciation Party with a new location and a new organization with our donations!


Conscious Alliance partners with healthy food makers to secure large-scale donations, they host food drives at concerts and music festivals, and they empower people to get involved by dropping philanthropic opportunities smack in the middle of a good time.

That’s where our Fall Fiesta came in.


It was our pleasure thanking you for your support with a special night out at one of Boulder’s very best restaurants, Arcana. The festivities included all you can eat and drink on Brian, and a good time in the name of ending hunger!

Complimentary beer, free pizza, wine and salad & to learn more about buying a home in Colorado.

We will teach you a multitude of ways to qualify to purchase a home in Colorado with as little as 0% down with no PMI, describe different loan programs for both purchases and re-finances and we’ll explain our Colorado Home Buyers Advantage Program that gets you up to a $2,500 closing credit! We’ll also answer questions like:

  • How do I know if I qualify for a mortgage in Colorado?
  • How much do I really need for a down payment?
  • How far in advance should I be preparing to buy a house?
  • What happens after my offer is accepted?
  • What if I have poor credit?
  • And more…

There are a lot of moving parts in every real estate transaction. If you have any questions or curiosities about the process of getting a home loan, these events are for YOU! These events are open to anyone interested in homeownership in Colorado: first-time homebuyers, anyone who has not owned a home recently, and folks relocating to Colorado. Come learn some new things about buying a home in Colorado, meet some people, drink some beer, and eat some pizza. We want to answer your questions & leave you feeling more prepared and empowered to make informed Real Estate decisions.

Our last Quarterly-held Buyers & Brews was at Backcountry Pizza & Tap House on Thursday, September 12 at 6:00 PM. Due to COVID-19 we are currently not holding any in-person events. We’re looking forward to the opportunity to be able to hold in-person events like our favorite Buyers & Brews, sometime soon! Stay tuned for updates.

We are proud to announce that we are only about $1,100 away from our goal of raising $10K for local non-profit Conscious Alliance.  When we set our 5th Annual Fall Fiesta it was the best party ever. Fundraising goal at $10,000 and 30,000 meals, we never imagined we’d get so close! A heartfelt thanks to our friends, family and clients who donated at the event and from afar!

When news of our totals started circulating, a few of our gracious and generous friends stepped-up to help us reach our goal by donating some rare and sought after String Cheese Incident Memorabilia items.

We’ve decided the best use of these items is to conduct two separate drawings. We will begin taking donations for chances to win starting Friday, November 22nd. Interested parties will have 1 week to secure their chance to win these items.

We’ll GO LIVE on the Brian Manning Team Facebook Page sometime on Thanksgiving (11.28.2019) to preform a live drawing and announce the winners. Be sure to “like” our Facebook page so that you’ll get a notification when we go live.

Now, onto the items…

The Barefoot Billy Bobble Head depicting Bill Nershi, guitarist of the String Cheese Incident, was the first in a series that would eventually encompass the entire band.

First sold on 2012 Summer Tour, these bobbles are no longer manufactured and rarely make it to circulation.

This bobble is in mint condition and has been stored in box & styrofoam in a climate controlled environment for nearly 8 years. This is a legitimately drama free bobble!
