Relocating Pets to Denver

Cat In Denver

I received a call from a Denver relocation client asking a good question about how many dogs they can have within their house when they move.  I’ve had plenty of questions about pets in condos or townhomes, but never in a single family home.  They’re moving to Aurora, Colorado but the question is universal. 

Christie’s International Picks Kentwood

This Christies sign is now on all Kentwood homes for sale over $1million.

 
Christie’s International is the real estate division of the famous New York art auction house.  It has just named The Kentwood Company as its exclusive Denver affiliate to market luxury Denver homes.
When I first heard this news I must admit I had some mixed feelings.  On the one hand I was very excited

Colorado Pets are “Not Included”

Relocation home buyers can be surprized by unexpected "inclusions' like this small rattlesnake found in Highlands Ranch.

Colorado home buyers relocating from another state need to understand that sometimes Colorado Pets are not included in the Contract to Buy and Real Estate.
I recently sold a family from New York (yes they are N.Y. Giants fans) a home in Highlands Ranch. In the contract we did not include a critter discovered after closing.  [...]

Corporate Denver Relocation Pitfalls

Did you know that corporations will often pay all the moving expenses for a Denver relocation buyer? But, the money comes with a Catch 22. Relocation buyers have to deal with sometimes petty bureaucrats and “bottom of the barrel” Realtors. The Corporation’s relocation company often dictates the services the transferee receives. This relocation buyer has [...]

Richmond Homes Turns Cautious

Denver new home builder faces real estate market challenges with "in-fills", smaller homes and smaller margins.

David Mandarich, Co-Founder and President of Denver-based MDC Richmond Homes, one of America’s largest homebuilders, spoke at my Kentwood Company Sales Meeting yesterday. Calling new home starts at “depression levels”, he said that builders are coping with the real estate market by building smaller homes and eliminating spec homes.

NODE is North of Denver

Erie Co Baloon Festival

I have to agree with Brian’s article about the suburbs north of Denver. Some Realtors are such “Downtown Chauvinists” or “South-Side Snobs”, they never show Relocation Buyers what lies north of the city limits. Everyone has heard of LODO (Lower Downtown) and LOHI (Lower Highlands). So, now I have devised the acronym “NODE” to compete [...]

Denver’s Western Heritage

I sat with cowboys from Canada who came to the Stock Show to pick up a Colorado developed Irish Black bull.

This weekend my family and I put on our Western garb and headed on down to the 105th annual National Western Stock Show and Rodeo. It’s a tradition we’ve been doing since 1983 but it’s an annual event that dates back to the time of the unsinkable Molly Brown. Here’s a video I took there.

Finding The Right Denver Neighborhood

Denver relocation neighborhoods

“If we hadn’t found you, we might never have found the right place for us to live in Denver”, Kieth said to me at the recent closing of his new Denver home in suburban Highlands Ranch, Colorado. He and his family had only started looking for a home on this website less than 2 months [...]
