I work with many folks who are moving to Denver and I’m used to most of the questions I am asked. But this week, I was asked a question by a relocation transferee. He wanted to know how he should interview for a listing broker where he currently lives. I thought that was a great [...]
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 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 [...]
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.

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.

Everyone has heard of LODO (Lower Downtown) and LOHI (Lower Highlands). So, now I have devised the acronym “NODE” to compete [...]
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.
“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 [...]
My wife, Pam, and I love living in here. Pradera is relatively new golf course community in suburban Parker, Colorado that offers a gorgeous, private country club. But, you don’t have to join the Club to enjoy the stunning, rolling terrain, views and affordable homes within an easy commute. It’s only about 20 minutes to [...]
