the inimitable draw of boulder, colorado
“Activity and exercise are an especially important part of the Boulder lifestyle,” says Jennifer. “The area offers so much opportunity for being active with a perfect setting and enviable weather.” In addition to the endless trails that weave in and out of the immediate area, Boulder is just one hour from Rocky Mountain National Park and within two to three hours of the major ski destinations, including Breckenridge, Vail and Aspen.
the job market
While the area is considered a tech hub on the rise, homegrown organizations such as UC Boulder and Ball Aerospace have been providing lucrative job opportunities for decades. Per US News, the average salary in Boulder is $67,160 while the unemployment rate sits at 6.2%.
“The art and cultural and dining scene is very vibrant,” says Jennifer, and it shows with an abundance of art-focused organizations such as the East Side Art Institute and the NoBo Arts District.
Beyond the visual artistry that lives within the tapestry of the Boulder community, the food and dining scene is equally as astounding. Boulder residents and visitors enjoy a vast selection of cuisines that span from renowned dive bars to white tablecloth experiences and distinct chef’s table-style dining.
the housing market
Beyond transactional finesse, buyers and sellers should seek brokers that are knowledgeable of the area’s eclectic housing styles and the intricacies of the county. “In Boulder County, there are a lot of properties that are considered rural,” says Jennifer. “By employing a broker that understands the niche neighborhoods and architectural styles, buyers and sellers are better equipped to compete in this market. Understanding the artistry of a community — including its people, homes and neighborhoods — is the core of our values.”
Powerhouse brokerages such as milehimodern are recognizing the need for elevated service in the Boulder area. “Clients don’t know what they don’t know, so having an expert that can anticipate the challenges of buying and selling in Boulder is a priority,” Jennifer continues. “milehimodern has already been selling in Boulder, but we’ve expanded our physical footprint to a new office location right on Pearl Street. Upon opening, we hope to further integrate into the community by hosting events, showcasing our incredible listings and get to know our clients on a more personal level.”
