Molly - Humane Society of Boulder Valley's Cat of the Week!
Molly is a very sweet young female cat who loves to be close to people but also enjoys her independence. She can be a bit shy initially so a slow and patient transition into a new home is what she is looking for. Once settled in, Molly’s new family will be able to see just how affectionate she can be. Molly likes to greet people with a friendly "Meow" and a quick nuzzle but will sit in her favorite spot over your lap. Because of her previous living situation, Molly will do best in a home where there are no dogs. However other felines might bring her company and confidence. Molly has a tendency to over groom herself when she is stressed out which is something that will need to be…

It has been awhile since we have needed to use the “Sincere Request" plea, but the steadily declining inventory in Boulder County and along the Front Range of Colorado has brought this old tool to the forefront again. As I was walking around the office today, several of our agents were looking at ways to go beyond the standard to find homes for their buyers. Just checking the MLS every day is not enough when the market heats up. You need to call other brokers, mail neighborhoods, and dust off the sneakers and go door to door.
The chart above is a good indicator of why this is the case. The monthly supply of inventory in Boulder has dropped close to 50% and in other markets we are seeing even tighter numbers. The city of Boulder has moved to…

As you approach Denver Colorado you are struck with amazing views of the city’s skyline. Traveling into the interior of the city, you can’t help but to notice some of the unique buildings architectural designs. Denver much like other American cities has a hodgepodge of history attached to its creation and the building of infrastructures. What was once almost completely unsettled prior to the 1850s quickly saw huge influxes of settlers chasing the Gold Rush to this region by 1859. Since that time and with funds from the railroads and that of wealthy gold and coal miners, Denver was built up from a small mining supply depot to the modern marvel it is today. I recently took a trip to Downtown Denver and was amazed by the mix of old and new, modern and…

The Colorado Ski and Snowboard Expo took place this last weekend and celebrated the winter season to come in our great state. Held at the Colorado Convention Center in the heart of downtown Denver, this event had a wide variety of vendors and activities for people of all ages. As you begin to make your way onto the floor you can smell the roasting nuts from the snack bar and see the many booths and exhibitions winding through the expo.
One of the most noticeable exhibits as you enter the expo is the Gibbon slackline area. Right off the bat, you see kids and adults walking, jumping and even flipping on a narrow pieces of webbing stretched between two poles. This is called slacklining, which has also evolved into tricklining. Slacklining began in the…

The Pearl Street Mall and surrounding streets in Boulder were teaming with families all decked out in their best costumes for the annual Munchkin Masquerade this Halloween. This event is a ton of fun for families of all ages, but caters especially well to families with small children. Personally, I liked the fact that this event is held early on in the day, which means the normally packed pedestrian mall was not too crowded with older folks looking for nightlife. This left plenty of room for the little tikes to run about from store to store collecting their sweet treats…and believe me that’s just what they did!
Check out my short video from this year’s 2012 Munchkin Maquerade in Downtown Boulder!
