Neighborhood Spotlight: Louisville

My family and I have called Louisville, CO home for the past 12 yrs and love it. My wife is very active in the community and I felt she’d be able to provide a different perspective than mine that generally just concentrates on the real estate side of things. Here’s her take on our hometown just outside Boulder:

My husband recently asked me to reflect on why Louisville is such a great town to live in and be a mom. Without hesitation I would say it is the schools, our community, and location.
Two weeks ago the PTO at our children’s school, Fireside Elementary, sent home a free T-shirt with every child for the upcoming jog-athon. The next morning I found my children dressed in their jog-athon shirts ready to head out the door at 7:20 AM to start raising money for their school. After convincing them it was a bit too early and waiting 30 minutes, my 10 and 7 year olds went to neighbors throughout our community to ask for donations in support of their school. Within one hour they had raised $100! They also set up a lemonade stand and raised another $80. We even had three police officers that stopped to say hello and to support the kids. My daughter recognized “Officer Joe” by name as he had been to her school just in the past week to introduce himself as a new officer within our community. The students at Fireside raised over $50,000 for the PTO. The community support of our school was very impressive.

Within Louisville we have a dedicated Facebook page for residence called the “oh oh two seven”. On a daily basis you hear about random acts of kindness, helpful tips from neighbors, and community information. Residents of Louisville are consistently looking out for each other. I feel fortunate to have such an amazing community that warns me about rattlesnakes on a certain trail in town or suspicious activity; as well as, sharing contacts for plumbers, information on upcoming event, etc.

Another example of the wonderful community I am a part of is my babysitting coop. The Bebop Co-op was originally formed in the 1970s by a group of moms that decided to exchange childcare with each other. Here we are 40+ years later and this coop is still running strong. We have even had a member who was once a child in the coop and is now a member with children of her own. The saying “it takes a village” is very true and these other moms are my Louisville village.

Last but not least, I definitely love the location of Louisville! Being a Colorado native, and having never lived out of the state of Colorado, I would have to say that Louisville is my favorite place to have ever lived. I love being so close to the foothills in Boulder but also being only a 20 minute drive to Denver. We are fortunate to back to open space in Louisville with a pack of coyotes and a nest of owls just outside our windows. It feels like at least once a week during the summer we end our evenings with a full rainbow out our back door or a beautiful blue and orange sunset over the mountains.

Louisville is a beautiful place to live and I am fortunate that our family calls it home.

Just Sold: Off-Market Louisville Home For Sale

Address: 340 Monarch St, Louisville CO 80027

Recently I operated at a Transactional Broker between both Buyer clients of mine, as well Seller clients on a single family home for sale in Louisville.

The active inventory of Louisville homes for sale is extremely low. Transactions like this are rare; however, I worked with the Sellers 10 yrs ago to buy this home for investment purposes. Working with a top performing seasoned Realtor increases your chances of finding opportunities like this one. Reach out below if you’re interested in the Louisville real estate market. I’ve personally lived in Louisville over 10 yrs and have many local connections that can be a benefit for you in your search.

Recently Sold: Westcliff Home For Sale

Address: 9646 Teller Court, Westminster CO 80021

After a few weeks on the market, Seller decided to reposition the asking price which then resulted in several offers netting the Seller an above asking price offer. This Westcliff home for sale backed to open space and was near both the elementary and middle schools.

Inventory remains low which is one of the main reasons Sellers are afraid of listing their home…they fear not being able to find a replacement home after they sell their current property. Brian is well versed in negotiating for the Seller(s) to stay in their current property even after their home sells, allowing sufficient time to find a new property to purchase. Reach out below to discuss further.

Recently Sold: Westminster Home 13k Over Asking Price

Recently Sold: 9586 W 104th Drive, Westminster CO 80021

Brian recently sold this listing in a multiple offer situation 13k over asking price. Cool thing about this transaction is the Sellers worked with Brian 7 yrs ago to buy this Westminster home as first-time homebuyers. They were able to take advantage of significant appreciation and put a good amount down on their replacement property after this sale.

Reach out below if you’re interested in discussing how to benefit in similar scenarios.

Just Sold: Spacious Ken Caryl Valley Home

Just Sold: 36 Dawn Heath Circle, Littleton CO 80127

The Denver area market is a tough one these days for Buyers and Ken Caryl Valley is no exception! Tucked up into the foothills this community has a mountain feel, just west of the Hogback. Ken Caryl Valley has few homes for sale, often making the transaction a tough one when representing Buyers. My clients on this transaction are relocating from the Seattle area and are used to a hot real estate market (Seattle might be the only city hotter than the Denver market currently). We were able to write a mutually beneficial offer that translated into my clients getting into a great home and community. If you’re interested in the Ken Caryl Valley, or other areas surrounding Denver & Boulder, please reach out below to start the conversation.

Just Sold: Boulder Home in the Newlands Neighborhood

Just Sold: 402 Juniper Ave, Boulder 80304

Sold Price: 1.2M

Boulder homes for sale in the Newlands Neighborhood don’t hit the market often! The Newlands is a great little neighborhood on the west side of Broadway, tucked up against the foothills and Mt Sanitas (world class trails and views from above). Many homes in the Newlands are being renovated and/or expanded. If you’re interested in Boulder homes for sale, a wise approach would be to find an option that you could renovate or expand. I have good connections within the building industry that I’d be happen to introduce you to. Reach out below for more info.
