The City of Golden has a history much like many other Colorado communities.  Real estate in Golden, Colorado was first established during the Pike’s Peak Gold Rush of 1859 as a mining camp but now is a posh metro/mountain community.  Golden runs along Clear Creek at the far edge of the foothills and sits among several picturesque mesas. Most known for the Coors Brewery which has been around since 1873, Golden is a popular destination for locals and tourists.  If you are ever in the area be sure to check out downtown Golden and nearby neighborhoods such as Canyon Point, here you will find several fantastic restaurants and a bunch of shops.  Below are few of my favorite places to grab a bite to eat and beer in Downtown Golden Colorado!

Thanksgiving Means…

Thanksgiving Day means a lot to me,
because it's time for sharing, love and family.

Although some may forget what it actually represents,
the pilgrims, the Indians, and gifts from past events,
to most it means a time to reflect,
and to remember those who are less fortunate.

The season comes fast with barely any time to spare,
so don’t blink or bicker, but rejoice in the whole affair!

Happy Thanksgiving to all our friends, family and colleagues!

Boulder Market Dynamics - November 2012
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 what

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
