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…

it takes a village

From design concept and market analysis to architectural layout, months of planning, permits, 13 talented interior design firms, subcontractors, and one incredible builder (Caliber Construction)—this is a VERY understated glimpse at what it took to build the 2019 Denver Life Magazine Designer Showhouse.

Ghouls and gourds Pumpkins do come from gardens, so it really wasn’t a stretch when the Denver Botanic Gardens began lighting up gourds in October five years ago for Glow at the Gardens. Leave it to the local art community to take the event over the top: The ingenious creations sprinkled over the gardens’ 24 acres go so far beyond pumpkin carving, Charlie Brown would throw in the trowel. The five-night, many-light event also includes fire and LED performers and pumpkin-carving demos, and this year will be capped starting at 9 a.m. on Saturday, Oct. 26, with a public giveaway of all the jack-o’-lanterns featured in the show. Oct. 21-25, 5:30-9:30 p.m. Timed tickets are on sale at botanicgardens.org…

I am interested in growing most anything, and pumpkins are fun to grow because they are a very dramatic crop in terms of size and development.” What’s a typical day of work like? ●“I try to spend the cooler mornings out looking at crops and gardens, finding out how the individual crews are…
