Renovated Contemporary Mountain Home in Silverthorne, COJay and I began searching for a mountain home in Summit County, Colorado during the summer of 2021.  Our lists of must-haves were a little different, but we figured we'd know the one when we saw it.  And, sure enough, we did.  On the other hand, our twin boys (9 years old at the time), thought we were absolutely crazy.  To be fair, this home needed a vision.  The finishes were beyond outdated, vinyl 'wood' paneling and ornate wallpaper covered many of the walls and the entire house smelled like moth balls. But the bones (and the mountain views!) were there, so we embraced the good and added lots of love, time, and our personal touches to make it what it is today. 

We've already made countless memories with friends and family in our renovated…

Denver real estate investment - reno before & after photosAll of us at Feaster Realty truly believe in real estate as a solid investment, for ourselves as well as our clients!  Jay & I recently finished renovating a home in Arvada with the intention of keeping it at least until we retire, if not forever to pass along to our kids.  Upfront, we had a fairly narrow search criteria (single family, 3-5 beds, 2+ baths, decent schools, quiet neighborhood, south Arvada, etc).  After seeing quite a few options, we really liked the potential of this home.  We purchased a 1972 home from the original owners who kept just about everything the same with the exception of a few key elements like the roof.  [Side note: I wish I would have taken a photo of that teal bath tub!]  We briefly considered throwing in renters ASAP to…

Denver New Construction Home - Feaster RealtyLike many cities, Denver is in the midst of an urban revival, resulting in Denver's huge uptick in brand new construction homes and pop top homes. As a Denver real estate agent that specializes in this, I often field questions regarding scraping and building a new home or popping the top on an existing home.  The answer depends on your priorities, but here a few helpful things to make an informed decision.
