"Drew was great to work with. He came highly recommended by my co-workers. This was my first home-buying experience and he made the whole process run smoothly. I felt he really listened to me and what I was looking for and only showed me condos that met my criteria. He was very good about keeping me updated and easy to get a hold of any time I had a question or concern. He was there through the financing and actual signing. Not only was he professional, but he is also a genuinely nice guy who is friendly and kind." - Eva S.

I will be having my 6th Annual BBQ Party on Saturday, June 29th from 11am - 3pm.
Centennial Center Park was a big hit, so I'm having it there again. They have a great water park and climbing area for the kids. Be sure they are dressed appropriately.
I will be providing food, drinks and beer.
My face painter, Ann Lykins (303-668-1242), will be there as well.
This year, I will be collecting cash/check donations for Food Bank of the Rockies. For every $1 collected, you will be providing 4 meals for those in need. A $20 donation provides 80 meals!!!!
Please RSVP to me at Drew@DrewsHomes.com.
Look forward to seeing you there!

Homes sales in March in the Denver metro area increased 46 percent from February and 20 percent from March 2012, according to a report released Wednesday byMetrolist.
In March, 4,333 homes were sold, compared with 2,967 in February.
Metrolist said that by all year-over-year comparisons, the Denver market is "significantly stronger than it was in 2012."
The average price of a Denver-area home is up 19 percent, to more than $295,000. The average days on the market is down 35 percent, and inventory levels are 35 percent lower than they were in March 2012.
"As low inventory levels force prices up and decrease the amount of time houses are on the market, local market competition has noticeably risen," said the report.
"Our brokers are seeing strong increases in 'flash sales,' where homes are coming under contract within days or even hours after being put on the market," said Kirby Slunaker, CEO and president of Metrolist.
March marked the ninth month-over-month decrease in available listings.
