LoDo Holiday Gift Guide

Neir Team’s LoDo Holiday Gift Guide

Have you already found yourself not knowing what to get a certain someone for Christmas? This happens all too often, and we find ourselves searching phrases online like “things to get your mom for Christmas” or “gift ideas for a boyfriend.” Well look no further than the Neir Team’s LoDo Holiday Gift Guide. We thoughtfully chose to feature these businesses around LoDo for your shopping convenience, to support the local economy and simply because some are flat out cool. We also want to highlight each spot based on characteristics of the person you might be buying for! So, check out what we’ve comprised and Happy Holidays!

For the Outdoor Enthusiasts

It’s not hard to find an outdoor enthusiast in Denver! If you’re gifting to anyone that’s a hiker, biker, climber, camper, angler, hunter or anything in between, head to Patagonia at 1431 15thSt. For the lady in mind, we love their new fleece jackets. Made with more environmentally friendly materials and in two beautiful neutral tones, these are sure to be a great gift. They are relocating to RiNo very soon, so catch them in LoDo while you can!

Patagonia

When it comes to the man counterpart, we suggest heading to REI Co-Op. This is kind of a no-brainer...

Will Your Remodel Pay Off? The Best (and Worst) Ways to Spend Your Budget

Renovations that work

Most homeowners have something about their property that they want to change. And as needs and design trends shift over time, many will eventually choose to remodel. Some homeowners make updates to their property before listing it to maximize their potential sales revenue.

Whatever your reasons are for taking on a home improvement project, it’s wise to consider how the money you invest will impact your home’s value.

We’ve taken a look at six popular home renovations and identified those that—on average—have the best and worst returns on investment. So before you lift a hammer or hire a contractor, take a look at this list and see if your remodeling efforts will reward you when it comes time to sell.

RENOVATIONS THAT PAY OFF

These three common home improvement projects not only add function and style to your home, but they also offer a strong return on investment. Making strategic upgrades to your property will help you increase its value over time.

Minor Kitchen Remodel

The kitchen is often referred to as the “heart of the home,” and for good reason. Traditionally used for preparing food, it has morphed into so much more. Many of us now eat our family meals in the kitchen, it serves as a favorite spot for homework and kids’ art projects, and it’s the place guests tend to gather when we host events.

Because we spend so much time in our kitchens, it’s natural that we will eventually want to make updates and upgrades to better suit our needs and changing style preferences.

Luckily, a minor...

Denver's Best Patio's to Visit Before Fall 2019

Photo Source: Maros Coal Fired

If you haven’t had your full dose of patio time this summer, there is still time! Here is “The Neir Team’s Guide to Patio Dining in Denver,” providing ideas for whatever patio type you are seeking. While patio season and outdoor dining can go well into October – or even later – take advantage of the great weather now! You might find a favorite outdoor Denver patio that you want to visit every day until the snow comes to stay!

FUNKY FUN

Marcos Coal Fired
With the breathtaking mural that surround its rooftop patio, eating al fresco at Marco’s Coal Fired Pizza sweeps you away to a little Italian town. The mural detail and vibrant colors give you so much to soak in that you may not notice when your food is delivered!

Woodie Fisher
So, to be honest Woodie Fisher has a small patio and the patio itself may not be all the special. What we love about it is sitting outside marveling at the juxtaposition between this beautiful historic building and the new hi-rises that surround it. (We admit it: we are architecture geeks.) Woodie Fisher is a revival of one of Denver’s first firehouses dating back to 1881. And, because it is housed in an old fire station, the interior has incredibly high ceilings and large windows in the garage doors give the space a patio feeling even when sitting inside.

ZEN PATIOS

Vital Root
We can’t think of any other way to describe the atmosphere at Vital Root besides serene. With built-in shade, you can relax without...

Why Piney Creek Village

Relocation from New York

Why Piney Creek Village in Centennial for a couple relocating to Colorado from Manhattan, New York? That is an excellent question. My name is Alex Neir and I help my clients find exactly what they are looking for, even if they don't know exactly what they are looking for.

Stage 1: The Plan. A brief phone call with my new clients established a future 3-day exploration trip to Denver to determine which part of town they felt most comfortable in. The plan was to find the right neighborhood and if the right home presented itself, fantastic. If the perfect home was not revealed, renting was the backup.

Stage 2: Client Background and Requested Features. My new clients are both doctors that were referred through my affiliation with the University of Colorado Neurology Department. They were being relocated to Denver for a residency at University of Colorado Anschutz campus.

When I first sit with new buyers I like to ask a lot of questions to understand the motivation behind the home purchase. One of the most critical questions is "What features are most important in your new home?". This seems fairly obvious, however, the trick is to convert the "features" into the "benefits" the buyers have in their minds-eye. For example, "I want to live on a golf course", does that mean you love golf or you want to live next to open space?  The answer generates 2 completely different home searches.

For my new clients, I gave each a piece of paper and asked them both to write down their top 5 features. I then examined both lists to see which features were in common and created a top 3 features list for our search. Features included:

  1. A big yard
  2. Close to work...

Photo by Josh Willink from Pexels

It’s Mother’s Day on Sunday and by now you might be out of luck getting brunch reservations. Don’t despair! Here are a few last-minute unique ways to spend Mother’s Day in Denver that will make the special mom in your life think you’ve been planning for weeks!

  • Let Mom sleep in and treat her to a gourmet breakfast-in-bed by ordering a take-out brunch from Four Friends Kitchen, named by Westword as Denver’s “Best 2019 Breakfast Spot.” Denver Biscuit Company, with online ordering, is an excellent, super yummy option as well!
  • Mom-owned Outer Range Brewing Co. in Frisco is having an all-day Mother’s Day party with an oyster bar, live music and of course delicious Colorado-crafted microbrews. Make a day out of it by heading to Summit County for a hike, then take in the fun on Outer Range’s patio. An easy and beautiful family hike is Sapphire Point Overlook Trail, but there are many other options!
  • Two Denver restaurants celebrating Mom in a unique way (i.e., not brunch!) include The Melting Pot: Kids eat free and princesses will keep them entertained so Mom can actually relax and mom/daughters-owned Oblio’s Pizzeria: Complimentary wine, dessert and rose for mom!
  • Have Mom’s babies grown out of snuggle time? She can still get some baby cuddles in at Broken Shovels Farm Mother’s Day Baby Animal Snuggle fest! In addition to calves, lambs and baby goats, puppies are on hand for some furry love. All animals are rescues. Love that.

Colorado Rockies Opening Day might just be Denver’s most anticipated spring event. Here’s what you need to know to get the most out of the Rockies Opening Day – whether or not you have tickets!

Colorado Rockies Opening Day at the Ballpark
While the game starts at 2:10 p.m., if you have tickets be sure to head to the stadium early. (If for no other reason than to find a parking place or avoid overcrowded light-rail trains!) The parking garage opens at 9 a.m.

Get a first look at our home team when they take the field for practice at 11:20 a.m. At noon, the Rooftop opens for drink specials and music.

Five, Four, Three, Two, One: Blast Off With The Five Essential Steps for Getting Your House Ready to Sell

photo by Benjamin Combs/Unsplash

With snow and cold temperatures hitting us more often than sunny dry days, it might be hard to believe spring selling season – when sellers list their home to beat the even busier summer – is upon us. Before you jump in, here’s five important things you should do when getting your house ready to sell. These steps are especially crucial this spring as the playing field is leveling between sellers and buyers.

Exterior – Step 1 in Getting Your House Ready to Sell

The saying “it’s what’s inside that counts” doesn’t really apply in the real estate world. Rather exterior and interior are of equal importance when it comes to selling a home. Why? The exterior is the first thing a potential buyer sees. It sets the stage for what is going to be inside. It has happened that when taking clients to a showing, they’ve decided not to go in based on the outside.

So what do you do?

Make sure bushes and tall ornamental grasses are trimmed and tidy and mulch is refreshed. And don’t forget any little presents your dog might leave in the yard. Believe it or not, if a buyer takes a misstep, they will associate that moment when evaluating their entire experience at your home.

Once that is done, take a look at your paint. Are there nicks on pillars or on your handrails? Touch those up! One easy fix to spruce up the look of your home is a fresh coat of paint on your door. Perhaps even a new pop of color. But do this with caution and after consulting your real estate agent. You need a color that will appeal to the masses, not serve as a reflection of your own personal style.

Hidden Gems: NE Denver Summer Camps You Might Not Know

Photo by Ashton Bingham on Unsplash

We’re penning this blog on a chilly day and it has us longing for summer. What we aren’t looking forward to is Denver summer camp registration season – which, by the way, is right now!

There are some camps everyone knows about: Denver Museum of Nature and Science and Denver Zoo to name a couple. The February edition of Front Porch also included some great options for Denver summer camps, but if you are looking for a few lesser-known Denver summer camps, especially those in NE Denver, keep reading!

Sarah’s Summer Camp
Call us biased as this Denver summer camp is operated by our own Laura Fuller’s daughter, Sarah, but this is a true best-kept secret. Each day features a theme and activity, and lunch too! Camp hours are 9 a.m.-3 p.m. at $250 per week. Not only are you getting your kiddos out of the house at a fair price, you are also supporting a young entrepreneur. Sarah’s camp is available the weeks of June 10th and June 17th. For more information and to register, email Sarah Fuller at sarahcfuller04@gmail.com.

Discovery Link
We’ve always thought only kids enrolled in Discovery Link during the school year could attend the summer session. Not true, and registration is open now. There is also an ala carte enrichment program camp at Bromwell Elementary. Find info on both here.
