Relentless Growth = More Value for Residents

Festival Park - 2nd Street and Perry

Festival Park - 2nd Street and Perry

These days, it’s difficult to get around Castle Rock without being diverted or delayed in some way, shape, or form by the relentless construction.  I sometimes think, I’m in the wrong business, and should have invested in an orange street cone factory!  

I mean, just look at this construction activity map!:

http://gis.crgov.com/maps/IYBY.html

While all this construction is sometimes a test on one’s patience, it is an excellent sign of our future.  This growth has led to a drastic increase in home values, and local conveniences, in just few short years.  Even better, because we are gaining more businesses and recreational areas, home values are not necessarily being raised strictly by the traditional market cycle, but also by these new local “assets” - making our town far more stable!  

One of the many projects I’m looking forward to seeing complete is the revamped Festival Park.

Designed to be “pedestrian friendly,” the new and improved park will have fire pits, picnic areas, a market place, and a water play/splash area, to name a few - all interconnected with walkways; to include an overlook. - I Can't wait!!

What upcoming project are you looking forward to?

When you feel hungry in Castle Rock, it could be time to go to church!

301 Wilcox St., Castle Rock, CO 80104

301 Wilcox St., Castle Rock, CO 80104

A great aspect of our city is the our community’s small town feel.  Castle Rock is best described as two cities in one.  We have the northern “newer” side with chain restaurants, the outlet mall, and so on.  We also have, if you go down to the south side, the “old” part of town.  It is here you will get the real Castle Rock experience - and where, us locals, enjoy a variety of “mom and pop” shops and restaurants. One “must see/experience” is nestled, just off of Wilcox street (210 3rd street)…. a small stone church.

210 3rd street

210 3rd street

However, we do not go there to pray, but to feast!  Castle Rock’s very own, Old Stone Church Restaurant, is a go-to spot for me and my family.  Serving sweet and delicious Colorado beer, along with American style cuisine, from an American Culinary Institute trained chef, you really can’t go wrong when you feel that grumble in your stomach in the middle of the day.  To heighten the experience, there is beautiful water feature inside the dining area - not to mention the owners left in the stain glass and choir loft. 

When St Francis of Assisi moved to it’s new location on East Fifth Street, rather than tear down a piece of our town’s history, it was converted into the coveted restaurant it is today.  Check out this link for a short history of how this came to be from the restaurants website:

I should mention, it’s closed on Sundays - Day of rest and all.

So much to do when living in Morningview! - The Meadows - Castle Rock, Colorado.

Ok, I must admit upfront.  This blog post is completely biased.  Morningview is not just an ordinary neighborhood, it's where my family and I live!  That's right, the official home of Castle Rock Rich!

More than just a cluster of homes (we have well over 1,000 residences), this community is host to several parks and play areas (some accessible only by foot), complete with paved walking trails throughout.  Often, my family and I stroll between destinations without the need to walk along busy streets.  Extremely well thought out, city planners also included a walking tunnel under Meadows Pkwy so resident can safely travel back and forth to the Grange.

Trailhead for the Meadows Trail System

Trailhead for the Meadows Trail System

Amazing right!  But it gets better.  Morningview is also home to Castle Rock’s famous, Bison Park and Clear Sky Elementary (greatschools.org review HERE).  Local tip: Bison Park has great slopes for sledding/tubing).  We have baseball fields, soccer fields, tennis courts, access to the pool at the Grange, and on and on…. 

Open space walking along the greenbelt. 

Open space walking along the greenbelt. 

Also, Bison Park is a trailhead for ridgeline open space - a system that connects to Philip S. Miller trails leading all the way to the Miller Activity Center (MAC) - home of Castle Rock’s Zip Line Tour.  Bottom Line - Living here means zero excuses for boredom!  

Have you been to Morningview?  What's your favorite feature?

WATCH VIDEO: Working with the military, vets, and government employees in Castle Rock and Monument, makes my chosen career path all the more rewarding!

As you may have heard, thanks to the success we have had working within Castle Rock, our team has expanded, and is spreading the "love," into Monument.  Our friend, James, recently sold his home out of the Woodmoor community.  Needless to say, we hooked him and his wife up!  

One unique aspect of working with the military (among countless others), is that they are always on the move; which is why my team and I have become incredibly efficient at making the sale happen, even when our clients are 100s or even 1,000s of miles away.   If you know anyone interested in selling (or buying) their home, or if you yourself are considering it, please do not hesitate to reach out - our consultations are, and always will be, free.

"Rich is action oriented.  Anytime we needed something taken care of, he was right there, on the spot..." - James

Arapahoe Community College is Expanding in Castle Rock

According to our friends over at the Denver Business Journal, it looks like Castle Rock is about to get a little more educated. The report states that there are plans to build a $40 Million Dollar campus close to the Castle Rock Adventist Hospital near The Meadows subdivision.

READ FULL REPORT HERE: http://www.bizjournals.com/denver/news/2017/01/10/arapahoe-community-college-to-build-40-million.html

New Arapahoe Community College Expansion coming to Castle Rock - dubbed the "Collaboration Campus" 

New Arapahoe Community College Expansion coming to Castle Rock - dubbed the "Collaboration Campus" 

The report by The Denver Business Journal goes on to say-
"The Castle Rock Town Council this month approved an initial investment into the campus of $3 million. Colorado State University and the Douglas County School District will work with ACC to bring in local high school students and assist them with finding a college so they can earn an associate's or bachelor's degree."

As we all know, especially for those that live in The Meadows and surrounding neighborhoods of Castle Rock, the "sleepy-little-town" persona is wearing off as Castle Rock becomes the Gateway to Denver and to Colorado Springs.

Looking to the future as expansion, for other neighborhoods in Castle Rock continues, it is important to understand that this is still one of the best small areas in the Unites States to live. It's for that reason, that we see the type of expansion going on. As a full-time resident here and where I have chosen to raise my family, I do see the benefits outweigh the negatives. 

I have made it my career to serve my neighbors and colleagues in the military, government employees or those who need to make the smartest decision possible when it comes to selling or buying a home in Douglas County, Colorado. If I can answer any questions for you, or steer you in the right direction, please reach out anytime.

There Be Some Gold in Them Castle Rock Hills! - Well...Maybe Not...

Taken from E Wolfensberger Rd and Auburn

Taken from E Wolfensberger Rd and Auburn

Have you ever driven down W Wolfensberger or Coachline Rd and wondered 'what is that out of place hill, with the pile of rocks on the top, all about?'

Turns out, that is a remnant of an important piece of our town history.  Back in the 1800’s settlers came here looking for gold.  Unfortunately for them, while there was some discovered here, it was not nearly as much as they were hoping for. However, they did strike another valuable commodity and it became, literally, the foundation for our town - Rhyolite.  Formed from ancient volcanoes, Rhyolite was the go-to stone for building structures - That is, until the advancements in the modern day concrete (in the early 1900s). 

Old photo of working miners:  http://douglascountyhistory.org/cdm/singleitem/collection/photos/id/1922/rec/5

Quarry Opening from the perspective of Ridgeline Open Space.

Quarry Opening from the perspective of Ridgeline Open Space.

That Hill or Butte (if you prefer), which now shares a boarder with the Meadows and Red Hawk communities, was once a thriving Rhyolite quarry known as the Santa Fe Quarry.  This Quarry provided building stone for not only Castle Rock, but for rest of Colorado, Kansas, Wyoming and Nebraska - All supported by our historic Santa Fe railroad system.

Like I said, this quarry, literally built our town!!!  Several of our most prominent buildings are built out of the very Rhyolite that came from it.  To name a few -  St. Francis of Assisi, the Keystone Hotel, the Masonic building, Castle Cafe, Old Stone Church Restaurant, and the Castle Rock Chamber of Commerce.

Here is a link to more Rhyolite Buildings: http://douglascountyhistory.org/cdm/search/searchterm/rhyolite/mode/all/page/2

Castle Rock Trails Are Ready for You in 2017.

Trailhead off of Coachline - Meadows Neighborhood. 

Trailhead off of Coachline - Meadows Neighborhood. 

Ready to start fulfilling that New Year's resolution of healthier living?  Castle Rock is just littered with walking trails; like those found within the Ridgeline Open Space.

Coachline Trailhead Depicted.

Coachline Trailhead Depicted.

Talk about building tight nit communities!  Ridgeline Open Space is a dirt trail system that connects the paved walking paths within Red Hawk and the Meadows green belt.  What’s even better, are the unrestricted mountain views along the way to your destination.  The paths are wide enough to enjoy a leisurely walk with a friend and are great for running and mountain biking as well.  It’s also worth mentioning that the trail system is connected to both Bison Park (which is also a trailhead) and the Red Hawk Ridge Golf course (you’ll walk right by the 13th hole).

Just when you think it couldn’t get better, it did!  Now, thanks to the brandy new walking bridge across Wolfensberger road, the trail connects to the Philip S. Miller trail system - all the way to the MAC! Basically, you can get around the neighborhoods with very little interaction with the main/busy roads. 

So, if you are not lucky enough to live here but are in town, be sure to walk on over to the #RidglineOpenSpace and #PhilipSMillerPark see what you’re missing.

You can view both trail maps here:

Castle Rock to have a River Walk? Yesindeedeedoodee.

Wilcox and 5th street - Downtown Castle Rock approximate location of new Riverwalk expansion.

Wilcox and 5th street - Downtown Castle Rock approximate location of new Riverwalk expansion.

If you have traveled to other places here in Colorado, USA or all over World, it is not uncommon for local communities, towns and entire cities to build on their waterways. For thousands of years, it has been the hallmark of attraction. Well, guess what? Get ready to be attracted to downtown Castle Rock even more. 

Sure, it seems that poor little Castle Rock is getting busier, and any new attraction will only make it that much more, well congested. Have you been to Vail in the Summer or Winter? It is what it is. What I feel is important is to see that this growth is managed effectively. Look, we know that Castle Rock is a great place to live, otherwise, I sure wouldn't be writing this blog from, er, Castle Rock. 

Here is the information about this I found in the Denver Post about the new proposed Riverwalk. http://www.denverpost.com/2016/11/09/mixed-use-riverwalk-project-will-change-the-face-of-downtown-castle-rock/

What are your thoughts? DO you feel like this will improve or detract? Are you opposed to major expansion, or do you feel it will add value to an already "IN-DEMAND" destination? I am curious about your thoughts and feelings.

Oh Yes Castle Rock, We Have Another Starbucks Coffee!

Yeah, yeah, I know, the world needs another Starbucks like we need, well, you know the saying. But for coffee lovers like me, having a Starbucks closer to my home in The Meadows is pretty cool.  This Starbucks, located at the Outlets of Castle Rock, which is rumored to have wine and beer at some point, is a more open, modern floor plan with plenty of places to work, meet friends or clients, or just catch up on that book.

This blog post is not to promote Starbucks (like they need help advertising) but rather, to keep folks who are interested in Castle Rock and its surrounding neighborhoods like The Meadows, Castle Pines and Red Hawk, know that there are modern conveniences and brands within walking distance. Having brands and stores like Starbucks, like Qdoba, like 24 Hour Fitness and others nearby, makes our neighborhoods and your home investment more valuable.

Sure, I will not stop visiting the locally owned spots in this great little city of Castle Rock, but when I can, hitting up a place like Starbucks is a great alternative.

What is your opinion? Do you feel like having another Starbucks is too much, or do you enjoy getting your favorite latte or cold brew closer to where you work or live? Let me know in the comments below.

Luxury Apartments - The Ledge Apartments Under Construction in Castle Rock

That massive wall, you know the one, just north of the Castle Rock Outlet Mall, looks something our of a movie set, well, take comfort, it's not. It is the backbone for a new luxury apartment home community called The Ledges at Castle Rock. This is part of the overall larger Promenade development being constructed in Castle Rock.

A development this size is bound to bring some negativity, but as in most cases, a great place to live like Castle Rock is hard to keep secret. There has for a while now been a lack of "affordable" housing for many individuals and families. Not that the Ledges Apartments is labeled "affordable" - rather, it does mean more housing choices for those seeking to live in this great little city.

What do you think? Are you happy to see more housing choices coming to Douglas County and Castle Rock specifically?

Are You Part of the Club? Sam's Club Opening Soon in Castle Rock

Sam's Club. Yep, that Sam's Club is coming to Castle Rock. This is how you know you are finally growing up from a town to a city. In fact, pretty soon, if you are a Castle Rock resident, you may never have to go South, North, or East again. (sounds good on those treacherous snowy days huh? 

Sams Club, which is a prominent feature of the new Promenade Shops at Castle Rock, is located just north of the Outlets at Castle Rock. The new location is nearing completion and will be hiring 175 associates.

HIRING INFORMATION HERE - http://www.thedenverchannel.com/news/front-range/castle-rock/whos-hiring-sams-club-hiring-175-associates-for-new-store-in-castle-rock

According to Sam's representatives, the warehouse retailer will be 136,000 square feet. If you are not familiar with Sam's Club, they are a direct competitor to the warehouse store Costco. which both sell grocery products, including a pharmacy, optical department, photo center, and a tire/battery center and a gas station.

Sams Club will be located on Atrium Drive and Factory Shoppes Blvd

NOT EVERYONE IS HAPPY

Of course, having a Sam's Club isn't all roses. There are many in the area that have complained that Castle Rock is losing its small town appeal, and the traffic and congestion now makes us more like Highlands Ranch and Parker. What do you think? I would like to know your opinion.

The Villas at The Meadows
New Homes for Sale – Castle Rock, CO 

Have you seen all the construction going on in The Meadows? No, not that construction, wait, no, not that one either. I mean this one, the one just west of Castle Rock Adventist Hospital. That's right, just off of Meadows Pkwy. another new neighborhood is popping up. This one is called The Villas at The Meadows, featuring several modern floor plans and home sizes. As your Castle Rock and Meadows expert, my team and I are always trying to stay one step ahead and keep you informed of all the new neighborhoods in this ever-growing community.

The Meadows and its encompassing neighborhoods is an amazing place to live. With many, many features for established families, a new family in a starter community, and of course, quiet, feature-rich living for those looking to spend their later years in comfort. As a Meadows resident, and of course real estate professional, I take pride in not only representing the amazing town of Castle Rock and its residents, but I work very hard to know what's going on so that you can benefit from getting the most from selling your home and purchasing elsewhere.

Seriously, Have You Tried to Make a Left Hand Turn Here?

Okay, so my wife and I are expecting a baby boy and of course since we live in Castle Rock and The Meadows we take our unborn baby for check-ups over here to the Castle Rock Adventist Hospital. As you may know, if you live in Castle Rock, traffic is at an all-time high and with so much traffic and congestion comes frustration trying to leave Hospital.

As I'm working with my clients and driving around the area every day I realize that I need to step up and say something on behalf of the Meadow-oan's in Castlerock-ites. So,  I am stepping up and suggesting that we as citizens of Castle Rock demand the light here at the intersection of Meadows Parkway and the entrance to the hospital.

 

Now I know I'm just one man, but together with a resounding collective voice- maybe we can get the city of Castle Rock to put a light here. We know that they will put a light here eventually but with a little bit of pressure maybe they'll put a light here sooner rather than later. if you're with me make sure you share the hashtag #CastleRockAdventistNeedsALight.

We are also doing a Change.org petition here -https://www.change.org/p/rich-pinckney-new-castle-rock-adventist-hospital-traffic-light

Really this isn't about me. This is about all of Castle Rock citizens that use the hospital and that frequent the surrounding medical center for their safety as well. Many times after waiting for minutes and minutes I have pulled out and even maybe made sometimes an illegal turn around, or as I'm leaving the left-hand turn area, you have to be really careful because of the center divide between the two lanes that you don't drive the wrong direction. I hope you enjoy this little video that we put together highlighting what I believe is a necessity.

Have a great day Castle Rock.

WATCH VIDEO: What Drives Me? Working with Clients like John.

Recently, I was asked- "why, in tarnation, a former pilot in the Air Force, that flew jets for his country, and had all the out of this world experiences and travels, of all things, after leaving the Air Force, become a real estate agent?" That was a good question. And one I'll answer now. Simply, put I like not having two exact days in a row. Think about that. Sure "the glamorous life" of an Air Force pilot had its benefits, and its drawbacks too. Like bootcamp, flight school, G-suits (holy cow, those things are tight), and a really regulated and strict schedule. But. no two days were ever the same. 

When I get up each day and help families, especially those who have similar military or government employment backgrounds, sell their homes so that they can keep serving our country, or help that family find and settle into their dream home,  I get great satisfaction. Sure, there are the days that grind, like paperwork that doesn't go through, or making sure all the little details are correct for each sale to go efficiently, but I wouldn't trade it for the world. Well, maybe the whole world.

This brings me to this blog post and why I wanted to share their story and testimonial that working with outstanding people like John is what drives me.. 

 

Helping John with the sale of his home and the unique circumstances along the way. And that got me thinking, EVERYONE'S circumstance are unique. So, i try and have the mindset that my team and I, will pretty much do whatever it takes to sell your home, and, or find you that perfect home. As you are aware, I live in The Meadows in Castle Rock, Colorado, but John needed to sell his home in Aurora, Colorado. We had several lookers, but no buyers, or at least serious buyers. John wanted to lower the price and I said, "hold-on, be patient" so we held out and finally within just a few weeks, we got what we wanted. I love making that part a reality.

Rich really felt like he wanted to work with us. All the other Realtors, I felt that they just thought of us another house, another listing, another showing. - John Redditt

You can learn more about my story and how I got here on my home page on my Facebook page, and on Linkedin. The point of posting this testimonial video is to let you no that I work REALLY hard for my clients. I work really well with families that have temporary situations that are not sure what the next three to five years hold other than they will probably be transferred. I was there I lived that world, and am excited to help others live in Beautiful Castle Rock, Colorado, or anywhere up and down the Front Range of Colorado, like John. I am ready to help you too.

It's Open! It's Open, My Lord, It's Open!

So on Friday, September 1st, it opened. What is "IT" you say? The North Meadows exchange or Castle Rock Parkway as it's officially known. From Meadows Parkway right up to getting on i-25 takes roughly 4 minutes. 

So whether you work somewhere up north or need to just bypass all the headaches getting out of the Medows, the new interchange is amazing. Plus, it drops you right at the new Promenade at Castle Rock and just a few minutes from the Castle Rock Outlets.

Patina - The Little Neighborhood That Could

The Meadows in Castle Rock is not your normal neighborhood by any means. Supporting thousands of Castle Rock families, while maintaining a level of sophisticated living is no easy feat. Yet, there is an immeasurable feeling residents get, even though this area is growing, it is still quaint, small-town feeling and friendly.

Tucked away in the large vastness of homes, retail, schools and recreational amenities, is Patina.

Patina is one of the very few in that group of neighborhoods, directly bordering, Butterfield Park part of the Meadows Neighborhood Company (as opposed to the second meadows HOA MCA (Meadows Community Association) - meaning it has access to the Grange without having to go there and set up a membership.  If you have younger children you could walk with them to Meadow View Elementary School through the paths in provided by/through Butterfield Park without ever going on a major street/intersection!  Castle View High School, though you will likely have to use the sidewalk is just a little further down the road (within walking distance).  Both areas within the Patina community are set up with "road loops/dead-ends."  Meaning, the only traffic you could expect are from residents, guests, or those who are just lost - looking turn around.
