Saturday's game against Oregon State had fans on the edge of their seat right up to the very end. While Oregon's win 36-31, wasn't the outcome Buffalo fans were hoping for, it was a nail biter! Boulder didn't disappoint with a vibrant blue sky day. It reminded how fortunate we are to have a home in Boulder. It that has so much to offer its residents including football, sunshine and 70 degree temps in October.

For me, a CU alum, it was a very special game. While we've made our home in Boulder for over 20 years, it was my son's first college football game. He loved it almost as much I loved taking him. It brought up an important subject, not just football, breast cancer. The players wore pink shoe laces and pink accessories to raise awareness

I have this wonderful image in my mind. I’m skiing down the mountain following my three kids. We’re laughing our way through the lift line and bonding over steamy hot chocolate. In reality, it’s me looking out the window of our Boulder, Colorado home at fresh powder, paralyzed by fear. I’m not afraid to ski. I’m afraid to take my kids skiing.

Why? I fear spending hundreds nay, thousands on ski equipment, passes and lessons to have it end in tears and complaints (my tears, their complaints). Here we are in Boulder, CO just a couple hours from world-class skiing and my three kids have skied two times. Two.

Solution? Indoor skiing at Shredder Ski and Snowboard Gym. No, this isn’t instead of snow, but it is a great way to enjoy learning the

In a town where active lifestyles rule, dogs know best. Here are 5 reasons why your dog wants to move to Boulder, Colorado.

Just one year ago Boulder and much of Colorado suffered from what meteorologists call a thousand-year flood. We thought it would be interesting to share a before and after pictorial of photos from our neighborhood in north Boulder. Click here to see a video of scenes from the flood.

An astounding 17.15 inches of rain - the equivalent of almost one year's worth of rain - fell on Boulder over an eight-day period in September.  It was an intense, emotional and historical eight days.  What we remember most from this unforgiving wrath Mother Nature played on us was the outpouring of support shown to one another by the people and communities in and around Boulder. 

Today, things are back to normal for most though rebuilding and

The Boulder and Colorado real estate and law communities lost a true legend and friend on August 31, 2014 with the death of Oliver Frascona.  Oliver's plane tragically crashed with four other people on board during an attempted landing at the Erie Airport.  The BoulderHomeSource and RE/MAX Alliance families are deeply saddened by Oliver's passing.
