GOLD RUSH – FALL FOLIAGE, THROUGH THE LENS OF A PRO

Monday, October 9th, 2017

Gold Rush – Capturing the Beauty of Steamboat’s Fall Foliage

Fall in Steamboat is as beautiful as it is fleeting, which is why we want so desperately to be able to capture the moment with a photograph. How many times have you tried with your smart phone camera and felt like the image didn’t do it justice? We turned to Corey Kopischke, a professional photographer who has spent most of his life chasing light and seizing the moment one frame at a time for some tips.

A former freestyle skier, he learned a lot about photography from working as an athlete in numerous photoshoots over the years. Kopischke was never formally trained in photography, but learned firsthand how it was done in the field. “I would bring my camera and shoot over the photographer’s shoulder,” he says. After living in Steamboat for 28 years and working for Steamboat magazine as a senior staff photographer and part time photo editor, he has logged in a lot of days shooting fall colors.

Buying Real Estate From Your Couch Just Got Easier

Buying Real Estate From Your Couch Just Got Easier

Evolving technology is continually changing the real estate landscape. Thanks to the latest imaging systems, selling and buying a home has now gone 3D. I recently invested in a Matterport 3D camera which thanks to its unique 9 lense design, can capture even the tiniest details in a space. Specialty software then pieces together the images to create an interactive 3D model. A buyer can then view the home in a number of formats:

How Many Porches On Your Dream Home?

Monday, February 15th, 2016

How many porches on your dream home? How about a wraparound veranda, an open terrace, and a romantic master balcony?

Just listed is a delightful stone and timber home on 35 acres of undulating pastures and montane scrubland. Located within a gated enclave consisting of just a handful of properties, prepare to be surrounded by stunning views and meandering wildlife.

Be smitten by the mountain architecture, multiple wood burning fireplaces, vaulted ceilings, sun drenched reading nook, and the vistas from every room.

Three bedrooms, three bathrooms in the main home plus a fully decked out one bedroom caretaker suite above the three car garage mean there is plenty of space for friends and family. Clearly good things come in threes!

A feeling of isolation and complete privacy evokes images of the wild west, however you are only 35 minutes to Steamboat Springs and 5 minutes to Stagecoach reservoir. The National Forest is accessible nearby to satisfy the outdoorsman/woman in you.

Buying Real Estate in the Winter Months

Sunday, January 31st, 2016

Buying Real Estate in the Winter Months is a great idea.

Here’s a video of why buying real estate in the winter is a good thing. It’s a great way to see how well a home is constructed, insulated and heated. And also just how much snow removal and maintenance is required in the cold winter months.

It’s also very important to watch for hazardous situation that can occur with snow. Here’s a price example of a house fire that is speculated to be caused by snow falling off a roof.

Steamboat Luxury Ski Condo Not Your Average Ski Condo

Steamboat Luxury Ski Condo Not Your Average Ski Condo

There is a difference between an average ski condo and a LUXURY ski condo. You know the difference the moment you walk through the doors, like at the Highmark Steamboat Springs.

 

Luxury [luhk-shuh-ree, luhg-zhuh-]:  a material object, service, etc., conducive to sumptuous living, usually a delicacy, elegance, or refinement of living rather than a necessity.

 

Luxurious Location

This luxury ski condo at the Highmark Steamboat Springs is the epitome of luxury. Located across the street from the world-class Steamboat Ski Resort, you can literally walk to the gondola for your first run of the day, but because this is luxury, there is no need for YOU to schlep your skis. Leave it to Highmark’s ski valet to transport your skis to the base of the gondola where they will be waiting for you.

Opportunity in Old Town Steamboat

 

Located near downtown Steamboat Springs, close to Stehley Park, Butcherknife Creek and Butcherknife Trail, this legal duplex is a great opportunity. With both units rented it generates $3,800 per month or live in one half while offsetting mortgage payments by renting the other half or move Grandma and Grandpa into one half so that you can keep an eye on them while living in the other half. The possibilities are plentiful.

Unit 161 sits over a 2 car garage and workshop. The large open floor plan, vaulted ceiling and natural light create an inviting space, great for entertaining and families.

 

The kitchen offers plenty of counter space done in butcher block and cherry wood cabinets.

 

Stainless steel appliances, appliance storage cubbies and abundant natural light.

 

Gas cooktop and cool designs in the butcher block countertops.

7 Reasons to Love Steamboat’s Sundance Creek Condo

 

It is not often that a Sundance Creek Condominium in Steamboat Springs comes on the market and when it does, it’s not long before it’s sold.

As you can see from the video, 580 Anglers Drive #307B is a spectacular place. I would like to point out 7 solid reasons why this condo is so special. In no particular order:

1. Location – This condo is conveniently located between the Steamboat Ski Resort and downtown Steamboat Springs. Can’t decide whether you want to live on the mountain or downtown? No worries! Enjoy the best of both places by living in the middle of them.

Real estate buyers today want it all – location, views, natural light, open floor plan, garage and do not want to have to do any work after they move in.

New Video: Top 10 Reasons to Buy THIS Ski Condo

I am really enjoying shooting these “Top 10 Reasons to Buy…” videos. They are a great way for me to highlight the very best features of my listings. I hope you enjoy them too.

This Top 10 video highlights a beautiful slopeside condo here in Ski Town USA:

 

This Antlers at Christie Base luxury ski condominium is pretty special, don’t you think? Steamboat is somewhat limited on true ski-in/ski-out properties but this is a great one, and a large one at that.

 

Looking for something close to the ski area but not necessarily slopeside? This Highmark at Steamboat condo is a beauty! Located just a block from the ski area gondola, with the best ratings of all Steamboat ski lodging properties, you will truly be pampered at the Highmark.

Steamboat Springs Among NY Times’ 52 Places To Go in 2015

Overlooking downtown Steamboat Springs and the Yampa River in the summer.

Steamboat Springs was recently included in a New York Times article, “52 Places To Go in 2015“.   Our small Colorado mountain town is listed as #19 actually. Further validation for our community that we have something really special going on here.

It’s not just our world-class Steamboat Ski Resort or our naturally therapeutic hot springs. It’s not just the endless miles of mountain bike, skating and running trails used for any and every outdoor recreational activity you can think of. It’s not even having Colorado’s oldest continually operating ski area and winter sports club from which 88 Olympians have been produced, as the NYT article mentions.
