The historic part of the Old North End of Colorado Springs isn’t simply a history lesson that is buried away in a dusty old library for safekeeping.  No… The Historic Old North End of Colorado Springs presents with storied narratives that are still active today.

Without being square dab in the epicenter of Downtown, the Old North End Neighborhood has basically been preserved to become part of the signature of branding regarding the future plans of Downtown Colorado Springs. Wait until you see our “Olympic City of Champions” really come to life over the next few years.  Some of the developmental plans are incredible, and new businesses and restaurants are popping up all over the Downtown area.

While the Old North End Neighborhoods help to protect and enhance the neighborhood streetscape and the preservation of trees, and improving safety and living conditions, the efforts to cooperate with educational institutions, such as Colorado College, cannot be overlooked.  For years, Colorado College has been intricately involved with the city and offers the kind of stability that many communities fully appreciate.

The Old North End boasts of beautiful historic homes, large yards with fully mature trees.  In fact, the trees create a canopy over the walkways, in which you feel like you’re stepping back in time where individual creativity applied to each and every home that was constructed. 

The pace of life is laid back, as you’ll observe many who are walking their dogs, or those riding their bikes, or those who are taking long walks into Downtown, or those who are working on their gardens, or those who are simply visiting other neighbors who’ve lived in the Old North End for years. 

Like many parts of Colorado Springs, the Old North End is growing with energy and excitement about all the new things that are happening.

Give me a call if you’re interested to connect with the Old North End vibe for living. Cherise Selley, Broker/Owner of Selley Group Real Estate, LLC, 719-332-4511.

WOW!!! Did you see from this video a group of deer nibbling on some grass from one of the yards of this Peregrine neighborhood?

In essence, this scene captures part of the theme of Peregrine. There is a mixture of about 1,000 well-built homes that are nestled amongst the foothills where wildlife and nature seem to pass time together in tranquil rhythm.

The Blodgett Peak territory abounds over 167 acres, consisting of massive open space, winding and hilly trails with wildlife (such as Peregrine Falcons), unusual geological rock formations, and of course, with magnificent views that make you feel like you can touch the sky. Overall, you can find “your” space to decompress from all of the stresses of life when spending time on this northwest side of Colorado Springs.

Outdoor recreation is also part of the theme for Peregrine. There are two beautiful parks, Marshall-Sprague Park and Woodmen Valley Park. And again, trails galore take you on great adventures throughout Blodgett Peak.

When a well-designed neighborhood provides upscale housing, questions about education are usually asked. Peregrine serves the District #20 Schools, which include Woodmen Roberts, Eagle View Middle School and Air Academy High School. Their track records speak for themselves…take a look onto www.asd20.org for more information.

Many homes are perched on overlooking mesas that bring the city lights into your own personal space. There are so many positive adjectives that help to describe the naturally beautiful reality of Peregrine. Enough said… Rewind the video!

As Colorado Springs continues to grow on a fast-paced schedule, it seems as if the north end of the city is receiving lots of attention for new home construction.  And why not?  Not only are local residents drawn to new homes and new restaurants and additional shopping and more fun things to do, but so are residents from Denver.  Yes, that’s right.  Compared to the Denver housing market, Colorado Springs still offers some options of residential affordability, and people are seeking some of these choices in the Northgate sector of Colorado Springs.

Located near the north entrance of the Air Force Academy, Northgate covers approximately 55 square miles at an estimated elevation of 6,900 feet above sea level. From most places within Northgate, a panoramic view of Pikes Peak and the surrounding foothills captures your view.  It seems like the locations of neighborhoods and the placement of houses on lots has also tickled the ears of the various new home builders of Northgate who try to emphasize the magnificence of the mountain range.  Typically, home prices are a little higher than other specific areas of Colorado Springs.  The median sales price is over $400,000 and seems to be climbing annually, as listing inventory is very low within the Colorado Springs Real Estate market.

The Flying Horse development is nothing short of spectacular with a Flying Horse North development to soon be added.  Within the Club at Flying Horse, there is a well-designed 18-hole golf course by Tom Weiskopf, plus a World-class Steakhouse for dining, an Athletic Club, In-Door Tennis Courts, Spa and luxury overnight lodging opportunities.  The residential housing at Flying Horse is tailor made for luxury living.

In Northgate, there are retail businesses that provide an economic anchor for other small businesses, such as Bass Pro Shops, Interquest Movie Theaters, Great Wolf Lodges, Summit Entertainment Center, plus more. 

Mega church, New Life, provides worship services on Friday evenings and on Sundays.  Next to New Life and the World Prayer Center is Pikes Peak Community College.

For those who are pre-college, District #20 Schools provide excellent education for elementary, middle and high school ages.  Also, there are several private and alternative educational pathways of learning within #20 District. Take a look onto www.asd20.org for more information.

Overall, Northgate is growing rather quickly with new businesses opening constantly.  Give me a call if you have expressed interest in Northgate, which is your gateway between Colorado Springs and Denver on I-25.

Judy Steenland, Agent - Selley Group Real Estate

First and foremost, we are so delighted to warmly welcome Judy Steenland of Dallas, TX with open and expectant arms to Selley Group Real Estate, LLC. 

When Gordon and I first met Judy during our face-to-face interview, it felt as if we had already known Judy for many years.  The lightbulbs in our thoughts automatically turned on with excitement and encouragement, as we shared many stories about real estate, family, faith and Texas.  Without doubt, we are confident that Judy will certainly add a spice of life to our real estate community, as well as to the clients that she will successfully serve.

Background Information:

24 years ago this year, Judy married her college sweetheart, whose name is Jonathan, and they had 3 children, consisting of one boy and two girls, whose names are Adin, Ally and Addison.  Judy and her family have had their roots firmly planted in Texas since the year 2000.

While living in Texas, Jonathan was the partner of his own cybersecurity business, and Judy carved out a beautiful real estate career (over 20 years) in the Dallas/Fort Worth market with Coldwell Banker.

Her record speaks for itself, as Judy was consistently in the top 10% of over 30,000 agents in the Dallas/Fort Worth real estate market.  Judy holds certifications as a Luxury Marketing Agent, as well as a Stager and Decorator, which comes in handy for effective marketing of higher-end properties.

Over the years, the Steenlands have enjoyed their love of travel and have mentioned making several trips to Colorado.  Like it does for so many others, the allure of Colorado eventually captured their hearts, and the Steenlands made a life-altering decision to move to Colorado Springs in 2018.

Decisively, that’s what they did, pulling up Texas roots and transplanting all of their business and life experiences into Colorado soil.  Currently, they are re-building their lives.  Literally, I might add.  Jonathan has joined the National Cybersecurity Center in Colorado Springs as COO.  The kids, perhaps young adults might be more fitting, are matriculating in School District 38.  And the Steenlands are building a new home in High Forest Ranch.  Lots happening as everyone is plugging into the Colorado Springs community.

Message from Cherise Selley Broker/Owner:

Personally speaking, I know it takes a huge leap of faith to leave a thriving business behind in Dallas and jump into the unknown… Judy, you have done this with tremendous courage.  Your talents and experience already set you apart! I am thrilled to have an agent of your caliber and character to join our group.  Welcome and may I say, “Onward and Upward to New Beginnings!”

WOW!!! What a powerful exchange between Greg Fowler of Real Estate Titans and Cherise Selley of Selley Group Real Estate, LLC.

The gist of the interview vacillates between Cherise’s personal and professional life, in which she openly shares some of her juicy nuggets about leadership performance and soulful richness.

Part of her growth within the Colorado Springs Real Estate industry has involved her drive to grow in her leadership gifts.  Partly born with the genetics of a “take charge” attitude mixed with developing her skills as a leader, Cherise explains how leadership has challenged the highest parts of her own capacity.

Yet, more importantly, Cherise Selley loves the fact that leadership helps to draw the right community around her, whether considering her boutique style brokerage (Switzerland mentality about business) or her professional involvement within Peak Producers, and/or other civic organizations.

In a nutshell, there are several jam-packed words of encouragement for others in this interview.  You must get your pen and paper out to take some notes as you watch.

When asked the question, “If you could go back 22 years and make some changes with your career, what would you advise a young Cherise?”

Aptly stated, Cherise touched on the importance of following your own gut instincts.  Of course, this is not to diminish the importance of renewing your mind or doing due diligence to broaden your business acumen.  Yet, Cherise touched on the importance of that “sixth sense” and to trust that discernment more.  She said that she would listen to that inner voice more and to not be afraid to walk in it.

When it comes to leadership, Cherise Selley punctuated the importance to stand for a cause that is greater than yourself.  It’s this approach to living for her that has united those who can’t stand for themselves and has also unified her Realtor colleagues.

Sit back and watch this 33-minute clip…

Greg Fowler … Thanks again for bringing good through your motivating marketing efforts into the complexities of real estate. For more information about The Real Estate Titans, please contact Cherise Selley, 719-337-9779, or email her at cherise@selleygroup.com.
