The holiday touches may be variations on the icy blue-and-white color palette -- or dashes of silver brightening the traditional red-and-green decorations. If you’ve been reading the home décor magazines, you know how the leading trends this winter are all about glitz and glam: designer touches meant to brighten even the darkest winter day (remember, this year’s shortest day -- December 21 – is right around the corner!). Still, I always suspect that a little nostalgic holiday warmth can add the same kind of welcoming touch…without breaking the piggy bank!
If you are planning to join those with Denver Metro Area properties for sale this season, a few stalwart touches can go far to add a sleighful of holiday cheer.
Christmas carols may be blaring through every loudspeaker from supermarket to mall, but don’t assume they have been terminally overused. For a December showing or open house, the warm feeling that familiar music evokes still works its magic when played in a home environment. But do keep the stereo volume set to background level – no one likes having to shout to be heard (even over six geese a-laying).
Many families used to host an annual “Holiday Open House” for friends and neighbors. That custom may be largely forgotten, but those with CentennialCherry Hills Village Greenwood VillageLone Tree properties for sale can add some of that same good feeling to their own open houses by adding nostalgic touches -- like serving hot cocoa and marshmallows to attendees. It’s a sweet, almost rustic touch that brings good old-fashioned hospitality to a modern marketing event.
Whether you are considering buying or selling property this winter, there really is no need to put off a decision until after the New Year. December can be a great time to get started -- and I am here this holiday season to help make your property dreams come true!

"We worked with Karen Venier for a relatively short time for a good reason: our home sold at full price within hours of hitting the market! While it’s true that the Denver housing market is “hot,” credit for the speed and ease of our transaction belongs to Karen. She was great to work with, giving us perfect advice about readying our home for sale and then expertly guiding us from offer to close. Along the way, we came to appreciate Karen for her skillful blend of professionalism and personal touches – like dropping off our favorite beverages during a particularly stressful time in our move or shoveling our driveway in subzero temps after we’d left the state (way beyond the call of duty!). Now that we’ve relocated to Wisconsin, we keep saying that we wish Karen could be our buyer’s agent here. Since that’s not possible, we’ll shout her name loudly to whoever might be looking for a home in the Denver area.
Thanks for the great work, Karen!
