We’ve all spent a lot more time at home over the past year. And for many of us, our homes have become our office, our classroom, our gym—and most importantly, our safe haven during times of uncertainty. So it’s no surprise to see that design trends for 2021 revolve around soothing color palettes, cozy character, and quiet retreats.

Even if you don’t have immediate plans to buy or sell your home, we advise our clients to be mindful of modern design preferences when planning a remodel or even redecorating. Over-personalized or unpopular renovations could lower your property’s value. And selecting out-of-style fixtures and finishes could cause your home to feel dated quickly.

To help inspire your design projects this year, we’ve rounded up five of the…

I drive by the new Meow Wolf Denver site almost every day on my way home, and it's been fun watching the exterior come together. What I haven't been able to see is what they are doing on the inside - which has been a closely guarded secret until just recently.

Located just outside of Downtown, Meow Wolf Denver will be 90,000 sq. ft - making it the biggest Meow Wolf installation yet!  110 local artists, alongside partner artists, and artists from the Meow Wolf team are working to create a one-of-a-kind immersive art experience. There will also be a locally sourced cafe, massive retail space, and a 450-person music venue developed along with Moment Factory (an experiential marketing company headquartered in Montreal).

So, when is Meow Wolf Denver…

We hear this question almost daily, is the Denver real estate market going to crash? Is the Denver real estate market a bubble? In short, the answer is an emphatical no. The reason is that this market was built completely differently than the market that crashed in 2008. Interest rates are low, borrowers are truly qualified and have made significant down payments on their homes, and inventory is still incredibly thin. While many areas of the economy have contracted, the housing market has stayed remarkably strong. 

When COVID-related shutdowns began in March, real estate brokers and clients scrambled to respond to the shift. Record-low interest rates caused some lenders to call a halt to new underwriting, and homeowners debated whether or not to put…

Whether you're a first-time homebuyer or a seasoned homeowner, shopping for a new home can feel daunting. 56% of buyers said that "finding the right property" was the most challenging step in the home buying process. It doesn't help in this current market when often home sellers are only allowing 15 minute showing windows, and offers need to be submitted without a chance to see the home twice. The bottom line, the stakes are higher than they have ever been.

Buying a home is a significant commitment of both time and money. And a home purchase has the power to improve both your current quality of life (and your long-term wealth-building). Doing your homework before you start home shopping, and make sure to work with a top-rated Denver real estate…

April 2021 Update: 

It's easy to have a scarcity mindset when we look at the active listing numbers for the first part of 2021. March inventory is down 71% year-over-year, which is scary given that the busiest part of our real estate season is right around the corner. But here's the critical number: 5,513 new listings hit the market in March. That's down year-over-year, but it's good news given the historically low inventory in 2021. So, why are we…

In the past several years, home design has taken a big shift away from 'shiny and new,' towards incorporating a bit of history and uniqueness into our own homes. Not only does this mean you can set your home apart from your neighbors, but you can do it at a fraction of the cost of buying new. 

The Denver metro area offers dozens of spots to score your own reclaimed goods, and we have decided to share eight of our absolute favorite spots with you.

Fall is such an amazing time in Colorado. As the air gets crisper, it's time to start thinking about some of the best leaf-peeping spots in the state. Starting in mid-Septenber, expect to see Aspens turning gold at elevations from 8,000 to 10,00 ft above sea level. Later in the season from October to mid-Novemeber, you can see spectacular color down in the foothills and along the plains in Denver.

Jim Creek Trail

This popular hiking trail is just 3 miles South of downtown Winter Park. The trail follows Jim Creek into the James Peak Protection Area.

The trail opens to beautiful meadows with views…
