It's been 15 years since I took a road trip to God's country.  I'll never forget it... the kids and I were greeted by an August meteor shower... the very inspiration John Denver spoke of when he penned Colorado's most infamous song, Rocky Mountain High.  It was one of the best trips we ever took as a family... which is why I got a hankering to do it again just 2 weeks ago.  Colorado is a beautiful state, filled to the brim with majestic mountains, clear blue skies, and the most spectacular clouds I've ever seen.  You can't help but get a natural high from nature there.   We almost moved to Colorado many moons ago, but decided to relocate to Southern Oregon instead due to the close proximity to California and family.  I've questioned that decision a few times over the years, especially a...

Well, this week, we were proud to visit the newly finished GORGEOUS model and even list the first one being built in the neighborhood at 1011 Eveningsong Drive!!   It was like Deja Vu … but BETTER!!

SOLD - Youngs Neighborhood - Castle Rock CO  80104       High on the hill in Castle Rock, CO is where my buyer fell in love with upon entry.    The views of the mountains are visible from any top floor window, and coming from out of state, this was an important feature of the home.     SOLD courtesy of Joan Cox - Metro Brokers - House to Home, Inc.   The beautiful kitchen and private yard filled with pine trees was icing on the cake!    Linda was a referral and wanted to be closer to family members in Denver.   Before she arrived, we had a solid list of homes she wanted to view.    We were able to get the home under contract before she flew home, but was unable to attend her inspection.    My inspector and I got her through this portion of the transaction smoothly.      Being miles away...

Wow, is inventory low! As of today, there are only 9 single family Castle Rock foreclosures in the MLS. Of, there are only three of these Castle Rock homes are HUD homes and are eligible for the HUD $100 down payment program. If you are unfamiliar with this program, it allows anyone buying Denver HUD homes (and the surrounding areas) to use an FHA mortgage and avoid the traditional 3.5% down payment. As long as you are using the home as your primary residence, you can put just $100 down. If you are interested in getting the full details, call our team at 303-726-1874.

One of the oldest restaurants in the Castle Rock area, Castle Café, has been serving the residents of Colorado and people traveling through the state for more than a century! According to the history of this eatery, which is published on its website, the Castle Café was originally known as the Castle Hotel and Bar. When the Castle Hotel and Bar first opened in 1890, it was a central meeting spot for people that were working and living in the area, and also for any person or group that was traveling through Colorado on their journey north, south, east or west. It’s hard to say whether or not the Castle Hotel and Bar was considered a “family” place back then because there are unwritten reports that the Castle Hotel and Bar was a pretty wild place at the time. In the late 1890s, this hotel...
