Have you heard of Red Rocks Canyon? I only discovered it a year ago and I’ve lived here for more than 20 years, so I wanted to take a moment to tell you about the place that’s been described as a “lesser-known garden of the gods.”

Located right off 31st Street and Highway 24 next to Rudy’s, this canyon is 798 acres wide and has miles of trails for all abilities. You can go hiking, mountain biking, rock climbing, horseback riding, and even cliff jumping (although that’s illegal).

I’d like to know what’s on your mind.

Sandstone from the quarry can still be found in many of the buildings in both the Pike’s Peak region and Denver. I like it here because it’s only minutes from downtown where I work. It’s also surrounded by lots of great restaurants, so when you’re done hiking here, you have a lot of dinner options to choose from.

I hope you appreciate me keeping in touch with you, but I don’t want to just guess what you want to know about. I’d like to know what’s on your mind. If you have a concept about real estate that you’re curious about, you want to know whether prices are going up or down in a certain part of town, or you’re curious about what’s going on in your neighborhood, I’d like to know about it.

Email me a question at If I use your question in an upcoming video, I will send you a gift card for $25. Help me out, and I’ll help you out. I look forward to hearing from you!

Getting Leon Makowski's House Sold

"My experience was fantastic, he had a really good working crew and they ended up getting our house sold for us. Took a little bit of time because of the situation but he did a really good job. Hopefully they will keep on going and keep on doing great business, they have a great a team."

How we Helped Diane Williams with Her Condo Flooring Issue

“It was great. In fact, Jeff has the most fantastic assistant, Jessica. She is amazing. She always kept me informed and then Jeff would follow up a couple of times a week. This is the fourth transaction I’ve done with Jeff. I keep coming back to him because he is awesome. In my situation, the condo that I was buying the owner took the flooring out. It was touch and go because the appraiser didn’t want to appraise the property with out flooring. The Jeff Ryder team really went out of their way to make sure that the property closed when it was supposed to and that there were no issues regarding the flooring situation. I was able to get in and put in the flooring that I wanted.”
