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.

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

"What's Old is New Again" - Seeking simplicity and innovation in design, with a stronger connection to light, nature and the outdoors, homeowners are being drawn to mid-century modern design and construction in Boulder. Original mid-century modern homes were typically built from the 1930's to the mid 1960's. This mostly post-war time period reflected a wanting of minimal, somewhat sexy, and organic design in homes. Flash forward to today: "Minimalist sensibility is in vogue again, in part due to this romantic notion of the past," says Gord Peteran, a professor of design at OCAD University in Toronto. "But, I suspect, also due to another form of rebellion - a desire for something simpler, probably a response to our fast-paced, multitasking, over-informed,

In January of 2012, the real estate landscape across the Denver Metro, Northern Colorado, and Boulder Valley began to change. Like an enormous grizzly bear awakened from a six year slumber, real estate once again forged its way into the conscious awareness of home buyers and sellers. Words like scarcity and demand became part of the everyday jargon when people texted each other at work or mingled at a neighborhood party.

Fostered in 2012 my historic low mortgage interest rates, the real estate market shifted into high gear with the resale market and new home construction attempting to keep pace with pent-up demand. Multiple offers became somewhat of the norm and homes were going under contract before For Sale signs could be planted in yards. Some
