It's been three years since Boulder and much of Colorado suffered from what meteorologists call a thousand-year flood. While most have recovered, many never returned to their homes. It was a great chance to see Colorado pull together to help each other. 

Here are some before and after 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

Boulder Real Estate   Here’s a question in keeping with the arrival of spring and the birth of a new baseball season. What’s the most expensive baseball card ever sold? Is it the Tulowitzki rookie card? Not! You’d have to go back over a hundred years for the card that most expensive baseball cardsold in 2007 at auction for $2.8 million to Ken Kendrick, owner of the Arizona Diamondbacks. It’s the Honus Wagner T206 card produced by the American Tobacco Company between 1909 and 1911.    With that bit of baseball trivia, let’s segue from baseball to real estate and the concept of scarcity.

Working in the Real Estate industry we need to categorize our listings as either in the flood zone, minimal risk, high risk, etc. When check-marking the appropriate box I never imagined that I would see what the high risk flood could really encompass.


September is always an amazing time for me. The weather is generally amazing as is the excitement in the air for all the holidays to come. Especially September 12th, my birthday - I love my birthday. Unfortunately, over the course of the last decade it has change. 9/11 happened, now the "100 year flood", or some say the "1,000 year flood".

Recently we enjoyed a unique and endearing dining experience with good friends at The Lyons Farmette in Lyons, just 15 miles north of Boulder. If you have not been to one of the wildly popular and recherche' farm-to-table dinners offered in the Boulder area, it is definitely worth the splurge. Situated on four lovely acres on the edge of Lyons with huge cottonwood trees hovering over a creek, farm animals, organic vegetable and flower gardens, and Lyon's unique red rock formations in the background, the setting at The Lyons Farmette is idyllic and peaceful.

We began the evening enjoying our adult beverages and lounging on the lawn complete with a very cool vintage truck and a tractor while watching the sun set. Then we were treated to a tour of the
