Boulder Real Estate Firm - Colorado Landmark, Realtors - Makes Denver Book of Lists Top 20!

Colorado Landmark, Realtors, a fixture in Boulder real estate since 1977, has recently been ranked #15 out of the Top 20 Residential Real Estate Companies in the Denver area, according to the Denver Business Journal 2010 Book of Lists. Not bad, considering some of the other companies on the list have 6-17 offices and 100-1300 agents on their rosters. Just goes to show that size doesn't matter!

With 2 offices and 50 agents, Colorado Landmark, Realtors assists buyers and sellers all over Boulder County and beyond navigate today's turbulent real estate market. Our agents have the training, experience, support and tools to help buyers and sellers make some of life's most important decisions.

Recently our agents and staff celebrated the holidays together with a wonderful catered event at one of our gorgeous luxury listings. 902 White Hawk Ranch, Boulder, built by Sarete Custom Homes, was decorated for the holidays and full of good cheer.
This home is over 9600 square feet, has unobstructed foothills and back range views, backs to open space, and could be one of the last large square footage homes in Boulder County! It was the perfect location for our party, and a good time was had by all.
Happy Holidays everyone from Colorado Landmark!

Is your Realtor up to date on the latest lending regulations?

Real estate agents at Colorado Landmark, Realtors recently attended a training session at Wells Fargo in Boulder to learn about the new RESPA (Real Estate Settlement Procedures Act) regulations that will be going into effect on or before January 1, 2010.

These new regulations are intended to help borrowers avoid surprises at closing by revising the good faith estimate and ensuring that lenders disclose all fees in the same manner so Buyers can compare “apples to apples” when trying to choose a lender.

The new regulations may impact the timing of closings, so it is critical that the Realtor, the title company, and the lender all work together from contract to closing to ensure that each requirement is met in a timely manner and the closing is not affected by any last minute delays. Whether you are buying or selling a home, be sure that you are working with both a qualified lender and real estate agent, who are up to date with new laws and regulations before they take effect. When you choose to buy or sell your home with a Colorado Landmark Realtor you can be confident that we are prepared to handle each facet of your transaction with the highest level of care and experience.

Boulder Real Estate Professional Dave Scott Inducted to Colorado Ski & Snowboard Hall of Fame

Colorado Landmark, Realtors is proud to announce that one of our own was recently inducted into the Colorado Ski & Snowboard Hall of Fame at recent induction gala event on November 9th, 2009 in Vail, CO. David Scott, Boulder real estate professional and BrokerAssociate with Colorado Landmark, Realtors since 2006, was honored for his many contributions as a sport builder for the ski industry in Colorado. (Link to press release here.)

David began ski racing in Pennsylvania at the age of 11. His passion for that beautiful fluffly cold white stuff led him to the University of Colorado Boulder, and on to coaching opportunities with youth racers and even a Junior National Team. His commitment to the sport of ski racing continued with AMF/Head in Boulder where he was Director of Racing, responsible for all of Head's worldwide amateur and professional racing programs.

For over 10 years David and his wife Gretchen owned and operated Chivers Sports in Boulder, one of the most highly respected ski shops in the country at that time. The Scott's sold their store in 1987 and over the last 15 years David has been a consultant to many ski industry companies as well as a key member of a management team for a new resort in Idaho.

David brings the same passion to Boulder real estate that he has for skiing. He and 3 partner broker associates have formed The Scott Team. David and his team work with buyers and sellers at all price points throughout Boulder County, and David has even sold property in Port Grimaud, France! To learn more about David, his associates, expertise and listings check out his website at .

Colorado Landmark, Realtors is very proud to have David Scott and The Scott Team as part of our Boulder area real estate family. Congratulations to David on his Colorado Ski & Snowboard Museum Hall of Fame induction!
