Laura did it again!   Her client wanted to move back into the Sunridge townhomes as she lived there years ago.   She was fortunate as she is selling her current home to enable a cash closing on this townhome.   She closed on this beauty this week, and preparing to move in soon (there was a short post closing agreement)  Congratulations to Laura and her Buyer!  This property has 1,745 square feet, two bedrooms and two bathrooms and was built in 1980.    Laura's buyer is very excited to close on this property.    It is close to the Aurora Shopping Center, a hospital and a variety of dining options nearby.

It is no secret we need affordable housing in the Denver metro area, as our home values have skyrocketed over the last few years, and some buyers can no longer qualify for a home. There has been a redevelopment agreement between the Aurora Urban Renewal Authority and the development team of Mile High Development and Koelbel and Company to accomplish this project. The Regatta Plaza (previously) is located off Parker Road and just West of I-225, was an eye-sore and was demolished (2016) and the King Soopers was rebuilt, along with plans of mixed-use.    The Point Crossing will be a 63-unit project and built on the 22-acre location in this new shopping center called Nine Mile Station.   There is now not only the new King Soopers, a new KeyBank, and 9 Mile Pho, Pacific Dental, Nine Mile Liq...

JOAN IS AWESOME!!! Having never sold a home before, I was overwhelmed. Joan made the process as easy as possible and her advice was priceless. Review submitted by Maggie  (Seller) on 16 Nov 2021     When I meet with a homeowner to interview for their Listing Agent, I ALWAYS ask if they have sold a home.   I want to know if I need to be more detailed with information especially when they have not sold a home before.    I don't want to assume anything.   This property was challenging, as it was not in great condition, needed lots of TLC, and required the right buyer, which we went through a couple before it closed.       Thank you Maggie for your kind words, and it was a joy meeting and working with you on the sale and purchase of your new property.

 It is this time of year we reflect back on those moments and years of business with clients that have boosted our business.   Maybe they did a couple transactions, some have produced many transactions.   Either way, these clients are those who make you smile, and make your day! Not too long after I began in this business, I had a phone call on one of my listings.  (Remember sign calls?)   After a short conversation, I learned they needed to sell their current property in order to buy their next property.   He had given me their address, which I immediately found on Realist.    It was a neighborhood close to me and decided to drive by that day.   This potential client said they were going to think about it and let me know what they were going to do. I drove by their home and discovered ...

It is ALWAYS a joy to review a review from a client and especially when they have such kind words, the smile is there for at least that day, and more!  So blessed to have such wonderful clients - This was originally left on Google  2 days ago Joan has worked tirelessly with my husband and I to find our first house when the market had more buyers than sellers. She is very patient, educating us on what to expect as first time home buyers and guiding us through the entire process to the day we signed the closing papers. But even though we're now comfortably living in our house, we still keep in touch with Joan because her friendship is that valuable to us.

 Wondering how the market is doing in The Conservatory?   By viewing these stats monthly, I can see how the market is doing in this specific neighborhood.   This is how you stay on top of a market shift or understand how quickly homes are going pending!  Real Estate IS LOCAL!  Below you will find the update for this month and what is currently available.  Homes in The Conservatory have basements, some are finished, some have mountain views, and were built from 2002 to 2016.  There are ranch models along with two-story and multi-level homes ranging in square footage from 1,387 to almost 3,000 above ground.  DR Horton/Continental was the original builder, but now Richmond, Standard Pacific, and Carpace have homes in this neighborhood also.  There are approximately 1,400 homes in this neig...

Greenfield is located in Centennial, with some of this neighborhood in the City of Aurora.    It is located off Arapahoe Road & Picadilly in the South part of the Metro Denver area.   It is located in Cherry Creek School District, which is just one reason this neighborhood is popular! I like to stay on top of the statistics for the community, and nice to review the numbers every quarter.   Most months there are just one or two sales.  For the month of September, there were four sales.     For this size of the neighborhood, we don't usually see many homes go up for sale in Greenfield or Greenfield Estates.    Here is how September 2021 fared: 4 properties sold priced from $719,973 to $850,000 (last mo there were 2 sales) Average Days in MLS were 6 days  (last mo was 5)Sellers saw 100.74%...
