Boulder Colorado Real Estate Blog

Thank you to all of you who supported me, Kim Payes, in the last year through this journey with Koelbel Urban Homes. I was so honored to be chosen to represent them and help create a community of 31 new homes in North Boulder. This project is just part of the vibrant NOBO community which is undergoing so much regentrifying and welcoming new businesses. 

The homes surround a beautiful new park that is already attracting neighborhood visitors. The new homeowners love living near open space and trails and really appreciate the great proximity to downtown Boulder.

Presently, all the homes are either sold or under contract though there is one unit that has already come back onto the market! Feel free to contact me for more details.
