Two nearby cities are getting national attention outside of Boulder County by making Time Magazine's "Top 50 Best Places to Live" list. Find out which cities those are, especially if you're considering investing in real estate along the Front Range.
3rd Quarter Stats are out, giving us insight into how our market has trended in 2018 so far. I'm curious to see how we'll finish out the year as we move into the 4th Quarter.
Now, please fly with me to my new featured listing this month at 265 30th Street in Boulder. This one is special for the buyer who wants a gorgeous newly renovated ranch-style home in Martin Acres.

Hi friends, here is PART FOURTEEN, FROM THE TRAIL! Or in this case, from the Colorado River with friends Ben Weaver and Mike Higuera...
WHAT IS A SILVER LINING? "Use the term silver lining when you want to emphasize the hopeful side of a situation that might seem gloomy on the surface. The common expression "every cloud has a silver lining" means that even the worst events or situations have some positive aspect" - vocabulary.com. I hope you enjoy, a lot! HATCH
Hi friends, Happy New Year! I'm coming to you this month of January, not from the trail or the river, but from our 1964 Dodge pickup. My knee is repairing from an injury and so that's why this month is FROM THE TRUCK. Kristin and I and our friend Lynn chose three words to help guide us through this new year: Patience. Discover. Capture. We're going to try to recall and embrace these words when necessary. You can try, too. Feel free to subscribe to my channel or like my video. I hope you enjoy! Have a happy new year, HATCH

My iPhone vibrated on the wood surface of the bedside table at the Snowmass condo we were vacationing in. “RACE CANCELLED!” is what the email read at 6:03am. Ugh, I grumbled, seriously? We’ve had a glorious fall season with abundant sunshine, deep blue skies and vibrant foliage. And the sunsets? Unreal! But it seems like the one weekend we actually had rain, snow and cold temps, was the weekend of my Annual Aspen Golden-leaf Half Marathon. Snow that had fallen overnight pushed organizers to cancel the race for safety reasons. My friend Paolo and I were disappointed. We’d trained hard for the race, but we were reminded that mother nature can change the game and alter your plans.

Hi friends, I apologize I missed the July session of FROM THE TRAIL. Too busy honestly, between work and fun. But the busy month was reward by a trip to Cali to catch Live Phish and then the kids came from Boulder and we did the SF tourist thing. Check out the view from Lombard Street in SF in Trail #7... I hope you enjoy! HATCH

Hi friends, welcome to March! Between springing forward with daylight savings, longer days and bursting flower pedals pushing through the soil, it appears winter may be behind us. Oh wait a minute, the forecast calls for snow so perhaps winter isn’t completely behind us after all. Mother nature has an awesome way of reminding us she’s the painter of our landscape with brilliant sunrises and glowing sunsets, mixing up warm days with cold and sunshine with snowflakes.

How Teeth Brought a Couple Together to Raise a Family
By Jon Hatch
The tall, sturdy dentist was hunched over in his rolling black chair and he precisely drilled on the soft part of a hard molar buried in the back of the patient’s mouth. The patient lay back horizontally in the exam chair with his mouth stretched open under a beam of light. Calm turned to displeasure as the drill bit pushed passed the novocaine and touched a nerve deep in the tooth. His forehead rippled and he wiped away the beads of sweat that glistened on his brow. Then through the noise of the piercing drill, the spraying of water and the gurgling of spit, the patient heard a woman’s soft voice beside him. He felt a gentle hand on the edge of his left shoulder. See all of 2015 issues click here
Bringing the World to Boulder
by Jon Hatch
Jim Palmer stood backstage of the Glenn Miller Ballroom in the University Memorial Center at CU-Boulder amidst the commotion between programs at the Annual Conference on World Affairs (the Conference or CWA). As the director of the conference, he was busy organizing, chatting, greeting, introducing, debating and laughing with those who buzzed in and out of the room. In the mayhem a fellow walked up to him and said, "thank you for all of this!" And the man dropped a piece of paper into Jim's starchy shirt pocket...Read the full story and more from On the Corner in 2014 by clicking here.
Trudging blindly through morning darkness, blowing snow and freezing temperatures, in the backcountry of Rocky Mountain National Park, Bruce Henderson breathed thick steam from his lips as he whispered to himself, "I am lost"...Read the full story of what happened to Bruce and many other articles in On the Corner from 2013 by clicking here.
For decades after the first homeowners moved into the lower Chautauqua neighborhood, its few residents lived in a country setting and shopped in downtown Boulder.
