It's definitely no surprise that Longmont, Boulder and surrounding communities experienced record high home prices in 2017.

Longmont saw a median sales price growth of 11% to $405,000; Boulder had a more modest increase of 1.2% with a median sales price ending at $855,000. 

According to Kyle Snyder, at First American Title in Longmont, the Longmont housing market has been on an extended upswing with overall prices up 37.8% since 2014!

Nationwide, real estate professionals generally see growth of 6% as a standard of healthy growth. We all knew Boulder County contained one of the fittest cities in the US, and now we continue to tip the scales on all levels of health- housing market included!

We feel the market will continue to be strong in 2018, but will it be double-digit strong, we shall see! We do know 2018 will continue to bring more home buyers to Boulder County and specifically the more affordable communities surrounding Boulder proper. Let our team help you, your friends and loved ones be a part of our thriving Boulder County communities!



Winter Birding in RMNP

by Christa Marsh

Approximately 280 bird species have been reported in Rocky Mountain National Park and the surrounding area over the last 100 years. It has such a diverse and abundant bird population, that it's designated as a Global Important Bird Area!

While some species are just passing through, many of these feathered friends can and do choose to stick around for the winter. Birding is a wonderful RMNP winter activity and all you need is patience and a quiet location. Step it up with a good pair of binoculars, some cocoa and a cozy blanket! A few favorite birding spots in the park are: Endovalley, Moraine Park, Wild Basin, Trail Ridge Road, Upper Beaver Meadows, Lumpy Ridge, Cow Creek and Bear lake Road.

For a complete list of species observed in RMNP visit's Birding Page.

Let's get started identifying some of our hearty avian species that enjoy the snow and chilly mountain weather as much as we do!

A favorite for me because they transform to white after they molt their brown feathers in the fall. The White-Tailed Ptarmigan lives at higher elevations (at and above tree line) in the summer, but in the winter they stay lower (at or below tree line) where snow is available for roosting.

The Gray Jay is another winter favorite. They puff up to stay warm and are quite social! Gray Jays live in Colorado's subalpine forests. An interesting factoid about Gray Jays- they nest in the late winter rather than Spring and mated pairs stay together all year!

Okay, head on up to the park this weekend and find these fluffy, winter birdies. Share your photos and hike locations on our Facebook page @TheWinningTeamRealEstateGroup!

Longmont area nature lovers - have you been to Pella Crossing?

by Cory Dudley

Pella Crossing was severely damaged during the Sept. 2013 flood. In the years following, reconstruction projects included repairing the breaches between the ponds, rebuilding the trails, and restoring the trailhead. In April of 2017, Pella reopened and it is such a treasured spot for walking, jogging, fishing, bird watching or just sitting and enjoying the peace and quiet.

Pella Crossing Open Space, is located just west of Longmont on 75th, right outside of the darling town of Hygiene. 

The Pella Crossing trail system navigates around 3 of the Pella ponds. You'll often see fisherman floating in the peaceful waters. Use of boats is okay as long as you are fishing. 

While walking you'll enjoy incredible views of the Front Range and an abundance of wildlife - geese, cranes, beavers and more.

Doggies are allowed on leashes. Everyone is very respectful of the rules, so it's a great place for all pups to enjoy the fresh air.

The beavers are busy! There's always sign of their work and you can view their active lodges. Often you'll see them cruising through the water.

There are trails on both sides of 75th and there's a crosswalk connecting the two sides.

When you're done at Pella Crossing, you may as well head up to Hygiene for breakfast or lunch at The Crane Hollow Cafe, where you can sit with locals at the Rancher's table while enjoying a cup of coffee and a slice of homemade pie!

A walk or jog around Pella ponds is a great outing close to home. Soon Pella will connect to Golden Ponds and the St. Vrain Greenway! We're so fortunate to live in communities that value open space, health and protecting our resources.

Ananda's HOT PICK of the Week!

by Cory Dudley



My HOT PICK for the week is 2003 Hollyhock Court in Longmont, CO. This brand new home, built by Porchfront Homes, is located within a well established neighborhood in southwest Longmont. It's location in a cul-de-sac provides that much more peace and quiet, too.



With an open floor plan, tall ceilings and lots of lights, this home screams elegance and comfort all wrapped into one.



The gas fireplace in the living room adds comfort to the heart of the home..



The separate dining room area allows for entertaining your guests during holidays and gatherings, while the eat-in kitchen adds convenience to your morning routine. Double ovens mean you'll be able to cook to your heart's delight!



Relax on the covered deck overlooking the backyard!



All the bedrooms are located on the upper floor, though there is a fifth bedroom in the walk-out basement once it's finished.



2003 Hollyhock Court has great access to Boulder as well as the new mall, Village at the Peaks. Shops such as Sam's Club and Whole Foods are nearby, too! Call me if you would like to have a private showing of this wonderful home..

JUST LISTED! 1920's Old Town Brick Bungalow

by Cory Dudley


If you've always dreamed of living in the Historic West-side part of Old Town Longmont, this is your chance!

We've JUST LISTED this fantastic, 1920's Brick Bungalow. Ideally located in the 500 block of Historic Old Town, making it one of the most sought-after Old Town locations!



The curb appeal alone is timeless. Nothing emphasizes the joy and grace of Old Town living better than a full length covered porch.



The living area boasts plenty of light and ushers you in perfectly from the front porch and foyer.




Not only is it in an ideal location, but 5 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms keep it extremely functional, which can be difficult to find in the older homes of this neighborhood.




This home is completely re-done from top to bottom, essentially bringing the effective 'new construction' date of the home to 2014. Upgrades (both exterior and to systems) as well as interior improvements are extensive.



The modern kitchen is highlighted with concrete countertops, stainless top-of-the-line appliances and lots of light...




The finished basement adds that extra space for entertaining and for guests that many of the homes from this time simply don't have available.



To top it all off, the backyard is just waiting for some inspiration and raised garden beds!



This charmer will capture your heart. Get in touch with us and see for yourself... Or check out these virtual tours if you just can't wait till then!
