    • Infographic: November 2015 Market Update for the Bonnie Brae Area

      “With inventory levels increasing slightly as compared to last year and homes staying on the market a bit longer, this fall is a great time to buy a home,” said Kirby Slunaker, president and CEO of REcolorado. “After peaking this summer, we’ve seen average sale prices flatten—a trend I expect to continue over the winter months.”

    • STOP! For once, traffic news that is great news!

      Over the past year, residents in the Cory Merrill & Bonnie Brae community have gotten serious about how urban living affects pedestrians and bicyclers in the neighborhood. Thanks to the tireless efforts of a Cory Elementary School committee, led by Cory Merrill resident Samantha Powell, and supported by Cory Elementary School Principal Jennifer Harris, the city has made major changes that will slow traffic and bring awareness to how to share the roadways.
