New Traffic Signal on Crooked Stick Trail in Ridgegate

A new traffic signal is being installed at the intersection of Crooked Stick Trail and RidgeGate Parkway. This signal will provide a safer crossing area for bicyclists and pedestrians. The intersection has had stop signs controlling traffic until now. 

During the week of July 20th, the mast arms and signal heads will be installed. The signal heads will be covered as the contractor continues work on the wiring for the signals. 

Once the wiring is complete, the signal will turn on and flash for 48 hours. This is so residents can get used to the new signal being on. 

After 48 hours, the signal will function normally. Also, the pavement for the crosswalks will be installed at that time.

During the next phase, Crooked Stick Trail will be milled and overlaid from RidgeGate Parkway to 140-feet south of Bluffmont Drive. There will be a detour in place during the performance of this work. There will be no access restrictions to Bluffs Regional Park during this time.

Congratulations Fara and Faye!

Congratulations to Fara and Faye on the purchase of their new home in #LoneTree Colorado! 

Working with Garland Thurman, they secured their new home even amid the Coronavirus craziness by taking extra safety precautions and handling most of the transaction virtually. Masks were worn at the closing but we snapped a quick happy photo while remaining socially distanced. 

We have a plan put together to work within the guidelines set by the State. In this case, our clients viewed several properties virtually, then in-person showings of those at the top of the list while using all the safety precautions, and then using Garland's professional skills to negotiate and close on the PERFECT home!

We are proud of our service to our Buyers and Sellers and look forward to maintaining a strong relationship after the sale process.

Like all businesses in the state of Colorado, the Lone Tree Arts Center is bound by the rules in place limiting public gatherings to 10 people or less as well as the order that theaters and music venues remain closed. The Lone Tree Arts Center plays an important role in the Lone Tree and Ridgegate communities. Ticket purchase and charitable gifts continue to support the Lone Tree Arts Center. A late summer or early fall opening is hopeful.

Looking forward, a few months of shows will be announced at a time so as to avoid rescheduling, if necessary.

Sold! Part-Time Residents Close on Highlands Ranch Residence

Congratulations to Ann and Tom on the purchase of their new Highlands Ranch condo! Ann and Tom reside out of stat. Their children reside in South Metro Denver and are expecting a baby in a few months. Ann and Tom wanted a second residence nearby so they can comfortably spend time with their family and new grandchild.

After vetting many properties online, a virtual tour was set up and the property was found to fit their needs perfectly. Their offer was accepted. All contracts and disclosures were shared and signed electronically. The inspection was performed, and report sent online. Closing was performed virtually for everyone’s safety.

Securing a residence as an out-of-state buyer can add a level of difficulty to the purchase process. Coupled with the complexity of the stay-at-home order, this scenario could prove challenging. Availability of and proficiency with virtual tools plus cooperation from agent partners, lenders and the title company made this transaction smooth and successful.

We are happy to welcome Ann and Tom to Colorado as part-time residents and are proud to be a part of the process to ensure their smooth transition to our great state.
