"We make a living by what we get. We make a life by what we give."
― Winston Churchill
The holidays are the time of year that people enjoy giving gifts to loved ones, friends, and to those that have made a difference in their lives. To some, it's consumer heaven, to others it's exactly the opposite and they behave like the Grinch or Scrooge! Regardless, we believe that one of the best ways we can give during this special time of year is to give back and support to our communities through contributions to local nonprofits.
Tuesday, December 10, 2013 is Colorado Gives Day, a program of the Community First Foundation. This giving initiative raises funds for a wide variety of local nonprofits in and around the Boulder community and

Now that Thanksgiving is officially behind us, it is time to fully embrace the most wonderful holiday of all, Christmas! In fact, this weekend was the most popular time for Santa’s elves to be busy at work decorating the houses in their neighborhoods and city buildings. Thus creating the wonderful visual spectacular we all love and have learned to expect during this time of year. Whether you are into simple white lights and red ribbons, inflatable Mickey Mouse Christmas characters, or extravagant light shows with music and animatronics, one thing you can be sure of is an inflated energy bill. So this December instead of increasing your carbon footprint even further, adorn your home with more eco-friendly holiday decoration options.…

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…

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…

Weeks have now passed since the Colorado Flood of 2013 and even though many people have begun to put the pieces back together, there is still a huge need for help in the area. One area which is near and dear to most Coloradans hearts are our four legged pals and pets. Since the first reports of evacuations, the Longmont Humane Society, which is one of the Front Range's largest facilities, has taken in over 230 animals which were stranded or otherwise displaced by the rushing waters. With so many additional animals in the facility, the Longmont Humane Society is now looking to the public to help fill the need of the community.
The majority of the animals that are being sheltered at the Longmont Humane Society because of the floods are in a unique…

Berthoud, Colorado is a small community of just over 5,000 people that offers residents tons of land opportunities, affordable homes as well as luxury home options, a quiet lifestyle and plenty of easy outdoor access. Located in between Longmont and Loveland, Berthoud is in both Weld and Larimer Counties and extends on either side of I-25. The area is the perfect place for those who want real estate options which are bit off the grid, but not too far away from their suburban neighbors. Berthoud is a very cute town that offers every necessity right at home.
