When we started our Berkeley kitchen remodel, we thought picking out the countertops would be one of the easier steps. I figured you would just walk in, pick out the counter you want and that would be it. So after taking a quick look at Home Depot and not seeing the look we were going for, it was off to the granite warehouses around town and that is when the information overload began.

There are about 10 major granite and marble warehouses around Denver. The way they work is that you check in, don a nice hard hat, and with their inventory list, start walking up and down the aisles picking out the slabs that you like. Each slab is assigned a category number, typically from 1 to 5 with 1 being the least expensive and 5 the most expensive. The

Since we have already had our first snow and the leaves are rapidly falling from the trees, I think it is fair to say that winter is right around the corner so I thought it would be helpful to look at the Denver Real Estate Market as we head into the heart of winter.

Historically, Real Estate in Denver slows down in the winter. While the number of sales are lower, my busiest months are typically December and January so I always encourage my clients to ignore the whole, winter is a bad time to buy or sale idea because people who are moving this time of year have to sell and aren’t just testing the market.

2013 has been a year like we have never seen for Denver Real Estate. And while the market isn’t as wild and crazy as it was this spring, it is

Ridge at 38

If you've driven down 38th avenue between Sheridan and Wheat Ridge lately, you'll have certainly noticed the obvious re-emergence of Wheat Ridge. What used to be run down office buildings mixed with a few restaurants has been transformed into a new hot spot in Denver. If you can figure out the diagonal parking, then it is certainly a spot that you are likely to revisit time and time again.

A few years back, the city of Wheat Ridge decided to redevelop 38th avenue calling it The Ridge at 38 and create a town center that Wheat Ridge has been lacking. Now it seems like a new restaurant is popping up each month and new businesses to go along with them. If you love beer, then you definitely need to check out Colorado Plus which serves 56 Colorado craft

When my wife and I bought our house a couple years ago, we started counting down the days until I could tear down the wall dividing the kitchen from the living room and open the entire living area up to one huge, open room. We bought the house from the original owner and while she had taken great care of it all these years, it still looked like it did 50 years ago. We have spent a ton of time and money bringing the major systems back up to date, finishing the basement for more room and working on the yard, but the day has finally come to tackle the kitchen and the kitchen remodel is under way.

Our house is a 50's raised ranch in Berkeley and like most 50's raised ranches, has good space but is very divided. The kitchen is tucked away from the dining
