People in Colorado are known for being fit and healthy, even during the holidays if you can believe it!  In fact, one of the most popular ways for Coloradans to celebrate the season of giving is typically whatever charity race, marathon, or fun run is going on, and this Thanksgiving is no different!


Tomorrow all over Colorado, people will be running for a good cause, getting fit, and having fun while they do it.  Events like Turley’s Turkey Trot in Boulder and the Mile High United Way Turkey Trot in Denver have become local favorites over the years, but nearly every major city in Colorado now hosts some sort of Thanksgiving race.  You can still register for most of tomorrow’s races the day of the event, so it is not too late for you to consider

I took a drive today into Boulder and got some really cool shots of the Flatirons peeking out from behind some clouds. Every time I drive down South Boulder Road, I remember the first time I saw that view of the Rockies and how amazed I was by its beauty. After nearly 12 years, I still think the views I captured in the pictures below are some of the most gorgeous Colorado has to offer.

Are you looking for something really cool to do with the kids? I recently visited the WOW! Children's Museum in Lafayette with my 3 yr old son and it was blast! Located right near downtown Lafayette, this interactive museum has tons of activities that are educational and fun.


WOW! takes kids on a fun, hands-on journey that highlights things like reading, math, science and the arts. This place has everything from a pirate ship, a toddler beach complete with slide and sandbox, a pretend grocery store and bank, plus an outside play area. A couple of our favorites were the music room, the pulley chairs, the grocery store scanner and the huge bubble maker you can stand inside. You will also find a great sitting area to have a bite to eat, party rooms for

For most people, the deciding factor when they select a canine pal to become a member of their family is the feeling that a specific animal will not only fit into their life, but will complete it. For me, I just knew when I looked to the eyes of my special little puppy dog that she was mine and my heart told me I could not walk away.  Having said that, I chose the dogs below from the Longmont Humane Society to feature in this month’s pet blog because their sweet little faces spoke to me.  And, if I could give these dogs a voice here is what I imagine they would say.

MOORE'S SUBDIVISION, RURAL NORTH BOULDER

Blending an eclectic mix of homes, capacious lots with mature trees, and close proximity to restaurants, retail, trails, schools, RTD and much more, the Moore's neighborhood is one of Boulder's most beloved communities.  

Originally settled in the 40's and 50's, homeowners in Moore's were drawn to it's pastoral feel with larger parcels not only for their homes, but also for their horses, chickens, goats, gardens and workshops. Today, Moore's offers an infusion of architectural styles including original bungalows, remodels and pop-tops, and stately newly-built homes.  The larger lots remain with most boasting 1/3 to 1 acre. Seeing a strong revival over the past fifteen years, stakeholders in Boulder's continued expansion look to Moore's as one of

Today’s home buyers and sellers are savvy, and have endless information right at the tips of their fingers.  More informed than any other consumer based industry, home buyers and sellers of the future will demand a higher level of service from their Realtor, especially as the real estate market is expected to continue to rebound.  One of the best ways Realtors can elevate the level of service they provide is to hone in on their sphere by getting to know their client base better.  With that being said, the National Association of REALTORS®  recently put out their 2013 Profile of Home Buyers and Sellers, which agents and marketing professionals can use to understand the reasons, motivations, and trends of buyers and sellers.  Below you will find several

Over this past weekend, I attended the 2013 Grass Roots Ultimate Frisbee Fall Tournament at the wonderful Broomfield Commons.  Put on to this event by one of our agents, I had a great time watching people of all ages play the game of Ultimate Frisbee!  Being my first time experiencing the game of Ultimate Frisbee, I was totally blown away by the amount of participants, their athleticism, and the spirit of the ultimate community.
