  Wondering how the market is doing in The Conservatory?   Each month I do the statistics for this neighborhood to see how long homes are on the market, the number of homes sold, and how the home values are doing.  This is how you stay on top of a market shift or understand how quickly homes are going pending!  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 app...

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 May, there were four  sales.    Being a Friday, would have THOUGHT there would be some showing active, but many pending 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 May 2021 fared: 4 properties sold priced from $490,000 to $820,000 Average Day...

 Couldn't have done it without her We entered the market in 2021 when there were more buyers than sellers. But, with Joan's guidance and perseverance, we were able to find our first home. Joan is very knowledgeable, experienced, caring, and patient as she educated us on what we need to look out for and expect in such a volatile housing market. Not only did we gain a new home for us, we also gained a lifelong friend in Joan. Review submitted by Arthur & Katrina (Buyer) on 18 Jun 2021 This couple was a web visitor and after COVID hit the Denver market, they decided to renew their lease for a few more months.    I met them for coffee prior to showing homes to better get to know each other.   I look forward to staying in touch with this couple, and watch their family grow!

This first-time couple are now proud homeowners, and cannot wait until the day they are able to take possession!    The Seller needed a 30-day post-closing occupancy to find a replacement home.   They are beyond excited, and will be excited to watch their next chapter!  Congratulations to Arthur & Katrina, and thank you for allowing me to assist you with this purchase! Denver, like most larger cities right now, is experiencing low inventory, multiple offers, and offers made thousands over list price.    Early last year I had someone make an inquiry on my website and they really wanted to buy their first home.   We stayed in contact, but after COVID hit, they decided to wait it out, and renew their apartment lease for a few more months. About 2.5 months ago, they spoke to a lender and st...

 THANK YOU Dena Stevens Coriz for sending this referral my way!   I so much enjoyed working with your sister, and it all worked out for her.   I think she will be very happy in Oklahoma near her kiddos!    The Seller was extremely easy to work with, because the buyer sure wasn't!   She is very lucky to know the Seller, as she would still be looking for a property! Congratulations Paula, and best wishes on your next chapter! In a crazy Seller's market and you get a call from a potential seller, it is a JOY!    Then they tell you "I have my own buyer".     Do they qualify?    Have they been in your home?   Lots of questions. Upon a visit, you discover they are in the process of packing, and there are quite a few boxes around and would make it tougher to get great photos to showcase the pr...
