Evergreen, CO is a great mountain town just west of Denver. With its close proximity to the ski resorts and Denver it makes it a very desirable and sought after area for homes and real estate. Just like any area Evergreen is thought of as having a norht and a south. The north side is for people that commute to Denver or ski all the time because of its easy access to I70. The south side is more for people that want a little more land and maybe have horses. Norht Evergreen neighborhoods are usually the ones that have the homes that sell a little faster. There is a big draw for Hiwan. Hiwan has many different style homes and different price ranges. It was built in multiple phases by multiple developers so you can still see uniqueness in Hiwan homes. Hiwan also sports Hiwan Country Club and...

Just like the rest of the country Evergreen, CO is feeling the pressure of low inventory. The new listings in the the Denver Foothills have not started to hit the market. The number of active listings in the Denver Foothills is about 10% of what was actively listed July 2011. In July of 2011 we had 1291 active listings and today we have only 146 active listings in Evergreen, Conifer and Bailey combined. What is surprising is that even with the lack of inventory we are not seeing complete control by the sellers. It is a seller's market but buyers are being smart. We saw some crazy behavior by buyers last summer. It was the same sort of thing you see with a tech IPO on the stock market. There were buyers that felt as if they needed to buy right that moment. With the spring coming up and t...

  The Evergreen, CO real estate market is showing no sign of letting up. The luxury market in Evergreen has been on fire for a few years now. There are many reasons for this. Evergreen is a very desirable area for people of all economic means and ages. It doesn't matter what your hobbies or likes are. Evergreen, CO has something for everyone. Evergreen is close to Denver as well as the world class ski resorts in Summit County. A short drive to Denver gives you the ability to live in the Denver Foothills and still commute every day to work in Denver. This means you can have the best of both worlds. The beauty of living in the foothills with hiking and biking trails extremely close to you and still have the income of a job in the city. You can also head "down the hill" as the locals call ...

A Long Weekend in the Rockies      When getting licensed to do mortgage financing, one thing that's important to me is that I do business where I want to do business.  I believe in forming real relationships with people, knowing something about the markets I serve, and having the ability to relate to local conditions from afar.  For that reason, I try to visit all of the markets I work in a couple of times each year to learn, meet, and enjoy what different areas of our country have to offer.  This past weekend, I took a little trip to Colorado. ...and fell in love.      My mortgage license was approved in CO a couple of months back, and though I've had a few loans there, I'd never visited aside from driving through Denver & the Rockies on my journey moving to the west coast.  I'm so gla...

What do most kids look forward to doing on Halloween? That’s easy! Trick-or-treating, of course! However, in Evergreen, Colorado, this Halloween tradition is executed a little bit differently than most suburban neighborhoods. You won’t see kids walking house to house to collect candy. Instead, Evergreen has three main hubs where kids can go to trick-or-treat and get those sugary delights this Halloween. The first place to check out is called The Island at Hiwan. This gated community opens up its gates for one night to invite trick-or-treaters in to experience the Halloween festivities in a safe environment. The next opportunity kids can explore is in downtown Evergreen. Businesses in this area will open their doors from 4:30 p.m. to 6:30 p.m. on Halloween night to give out some tasty tr...

 Looking for some tasty food and an authentic mountain experience? Search no further because Cactus Jack’s is your one-stop shop for some Bear Creek entertainment and cuisine. Cactus Jack’s Saloon and Grill is located in downtown Evergreen. Formerly an older rustic restaurant in the heart of Evergreen, Cactus Jack’s still has that same mountain atmosphere, but has received a facelift after the sweeping floods that swept through Colorado a few years ago wiped out sections of the restaurant. Cactus Jack’s has a newly renovated patio area where you can sink into serenity by listening to the sound of the flowing Bear Creek waters or catch some of the great music of the Creekside Music Series that is an annual tradition here. The Creekside Music Series in Evergreen normally runs Memorial Day...

Hiwan Hills, a north Evergreen, Colorado neighborhood originally constructed in the 1970s, is home to an ecclectic mix of older and newer homes. This Hiwan Hills neighborhood is rapidly moving toward the restoration of its older homes and is a popular jewel in Evergreen. This Evergreen neighborhood is centrally located and sandwiched between the famous Hiwan neighborhood and old downtown Evergreen. Its affordable pricing and short commute to the city make it attractive to buyers wanting to make Evergreen their home. Situated at 7,425 feet, most Hiwan Hills homes in the area have views of a snow-capped Mount Evans and access to other picturesque views of nature without being super pricey. The Hiwan Homestead Museum and the Center Stage Performing Arts Center are also nearby. The Hiwan Hi...

The Evergreen Dam plays a central role in a number of activities that Evergreen offers to both its local residents and worldly visitors. Originally left out of preliminary construction plans for Dedisse Park in 1914, the Evergreen Dam was later proposed by Charles Vail, the city of Denver’s manager of improvements, in 1926 and has been a mecca of outdoor activities in Evergreen ever since its completion in 1928. The dam and lake in Evergreen, Colorado continue to be a draw for fisherman, boaters, and ice skaters alike. The Evergreen Lake proudly boasts its title as the “Crown Jewel” of Denver’s Mountain Parks and continues to be a highly-trafficked hiking area year after year. The Evergreen Lake even hosts the famous Polar Plunge annually for those crazy residents and visitors that like...

Dedisse Park, spanning 420 acres, is one of Evergreen, Colorado’s centrally located parks. It is just off of Colorado State Highway 74. Originally a historic mountain ranch where Julius and Mary Ann Dedisse resided in the 1860s, the city of Denver acquired the property from Dedisse heirs in 1919. Now, Dedisse Park is home to the first mountain golf course in Colorado, the Evergreen Golf Course, built in 1921. The golf course is now home to the scenic Keys on the Green clubhouse restaurant where diners can come to take in the sights. A few years later in 1926, Denver began construction of the dam at Evergreen Lake, also known as “The Perfect Mirror” and crowning jewel of Evergreen. It provides a plethora of activities in both the summer and winter months. In the late 1930s, with tons of ...
