Rachel Betz’s SOLD OUT Cherry Creek North Luxury Condo Listings at Saint John’s Gardens Denver Colorado Real Estate
From the very beginning, everyone agreed that Saint John’s Gardens was a special residential Luxury project like nothing Cherry Creek North had seen. The vision for this incredible place was one of honoring the historic nature of the award-winning Sanctuary Residence (1903) and Rectory (1905) buildings, while creating an incredible outdoor living space for all of the residents. The vision was a serene and welcoming Sanctuary within the city – an attempt to merge Denver, Colorado city life with the essence of European countryside gardens. While most other developers and builders in Cherry Creek North were working to maximize square footage, by building as large as possible, with as little outdoor space as possible, Saint John’s Gardens was designed to allow for a unique balance between grand, open floor plans, and stunning courtyards.
I’m proud to announce that Saint John’s Gardens is the only Luxury new construction residential project that has been completely SOLD OUT prior to completion of construction. This project has been a labor of love for years for the entire team. If you have real estate and construction needs, I hope you will consider supporting some of the amazing business that have been involved with this project:
Saint John’s Gardens LLC (David Veldman, Developer)
DHR Architecture (Formerly DH Ruggles, Architects)
Hyatt Studios (Landscape Architecture/Design)
Interior Intuitions (Custom Cabinet Design & Suppliers)
Arrowhead Floors & Interiors (Stone, Tile, Wood, and Finish Suppliers)
Kobey Development (Interior Finish Construction of THE FLATS building)
RLM Building Company (Bob Murdock – Historic Renovation of The Sanctuary Residence)
And of Course… Rachel Betz Real Estate (Real Estate Sales & Project Management)
More details on THE FLATS at Saint John’s Gardens
What’s next for Rachel Betz Real Estate you ask? A new project, of course!

It will host weddings, reunions, business retreats, leadership camps for kids, and private wine, dining and music series events.
Denver metro Real Estate Market RIGHT NOW – CONDOS – Colorado News Statistics FACTS for Buyers & Sellers Summer 2012 Rachel Betz
The Denver Real Estate word of the season is…CONDO. If the real estate market in Denver is HOT, then the condo market is on FIRE! The spring buying frenzy has continued throughout the summer season, and there are still not enough homes and condos on the market to meet Buyer demand. Inventory is at the lowest it has been in years, and prices are up. The condo market is the absolute fastest moving market in the metro Denver area. Do you remember that “condo” was a dirty word only 2 short years ago? The market has definitely shifted, and condos are being snapped up faster than they can hit the market!
The Top 5 Reasons why condos are the investment to buy RIGHT NOW:
1. Retiring Empty-Nesters. There is not a more appealing lifestyle choice for empty-nesters, than the decision to downsize, simplify, and become FREE. After their kids leave the nest, they embrace their new lives, and know that simplifying is the true key to freedom. Why spend your days working on your home and a yard that is never quite done? Want to jet-set to Paris? Hike the Rockies? Road trip to Napa? A lock & leave condo is a MUST!
2. Second Home Owners. Seeking a tax haven? Seeking a vacation home? Seeking an income property? Condos can fulfill all of these needs for those buying second homes. Second homes can be snapped up with 20% down…and with interest rates floating around 4%, you would be crazy not to consider buying. Passive income IS the answer. Why ride the stock market up and down on an hourly basis? A second home (condo) can be the perfect mix of rental property and vacation home…you make money every month it’s rented. You can write off expenses. You don’t need to worry about cardiac arrest if things are erupting in Europe. A condo is a less stressful investment – period.
3. Luxury Home Owners Downsizing. I have brokered numerous luxury condo deals over the past year to Buyers wanting to find an incredible home, with less square footage. Today’s luxury Buyers are looking for QUALITY, not necessarily QUANTITY. They want a refined, luxurious space that they don’t have to worry about maintaining. They want high quality finishes, and the same lock & leave lifestyle as Retiring Empty-Nesters.
4. 1st Time Buyers. When young Buyers switch from being a renter to being a homeowner, they often feel stressed upon discovering how much maintenance a single family home requires. They are often surprised to find themselves mowing the lawn & pulling weeds on weekends, instead of actually enjoying life. The solution? A condo – especially for urban dwellers. Young Buyers can discover home ownership without being tied down to property maintenance. Why not let someone else deal with all of that work? Colorado was made to play!
5. Investors. If ever there was a time to snatch up condo deals, it is now! Many investors are snatching up condos for under $100,000, anticipating their values will jump at least 20% over the next few years. “Why,” you ask? Because they have been underpriced since 2008. If you can purchase a property for $100,000-$150,000, rent it out for between $800-1,500 a month, then sell it for a 20% gain in a few years, you should consider it. Investors are snatching up undervalued condos like crazy!
6. Young, Kidless Singles & Couples. You’re young. You’re fun. You’re local. You work. You play. You are Kidless. The Denver Condo lifestyle, in an urban setting supports everything you could want in this world. And it’s EASY. The house will come…with the kids. Just not quite yet! =)
