kerb appeal

Anyone selling a house understands the importance of curb appeal. Douglas D. Kerbs, one of the country’s top 250 real estate brokers, offers his clients #kerbappeal. The attention-getting hashtag is one of two he uses to promote his personalized approach to real estate transactions both locally and worldwide as a broker with LIV Sotheby’s International Realty. “Real estate is a very personal business,” he says. So whether he’s representing the seller of a $1 million townhouse in Denver or finding a $24.9 million villa in St. Barts for a buyer, “I give every client my ‘Bespoke Real Estate Portfolio Services,’ that is, a high level of service customized to their needs.” Kerbs treats clients to once-in-a-lifetime experiences like after-hours, curator-guided tours of the heralded Dior, Rembrandt, and Monet exhibits at the Denver Art…

live it up!

For this, our annual love letter to Denver (the “Best Places to Live” issue), we faced a conundrum: Do we write our story for the Colorado neophyte (you know who you are—there are tens of thousands of people moving here every year)? Do we write for natives, those people who knew the grass was not greener elsewhere and stayed put? Or do we write for the tweeners: transplants who know they found the proverbial pot of gold at the end of the rainbow here? Our solution: Find ideas for everyone, from newbie to native. For the second half of our “Best Places to Live” feature, we focus on real estate. Whatever your price range—from $500,000 to more than $1.5 million—we’ve found an array of stunning, amenity-laden neighborhoods that will provide inspiration,…

Baseball Fever “Love is the most important thing in the world, but baseball’s pretty good too.” Amen to that. Yogi Berra may have been the king of malapropisms, but he knew a thing or two about our national pastime. And, all you Rockies fans, the home opener is right around the corner: April 5 against the Dodgers. Can’t wait that long? This month, there are preseason games every few days at the Rockies’ spring training field, Salt River Fields at Talking Stick, in Scottsdale, Ariz. The field, one of the most popular venues in the Cactus League, is surrounded by 140 scenic acres. Guests can seek autographs along the railing between sections 101-104 and 120-123, and children under 2 can sit on their parents’ laps for free. Play ball! mlb.com/rockies/spring-training…

bargain hunter get into gear

Our ski season is notably lengthy in Colorado (Arapahoe Basin has one of the longest in the country), and by March, it’s usually still in full swing. But that doesn’t mean this month is a bad time to replace some of your old gear; in fact, March sees some of the best deals all year, as outdoor stores try to clear their winter inventory to make room for biking, hiking, and camping equipment. Plus, with any luck, you’ll still get some solid weekends on the slopes with any discounted gear you pick up! Stop by a few of our favorite shops before the month is over to see how many sweet deals you can hunt down.
