Landmark Moment: Lachlan Morton’s Solo Inspiration

Professional rider, Lachlan Morton, has completed all 21 stages of the Tour de France – WITHOUT team support! Lachlan is a Boulder resident as well as a friend and client of Marybeth Emerson.

His cycling team, EF Education-Nippo, called Morton’s feat the “Alt Tour,” and raised almost $500,000 for World Bicycle Relief, a charity that donates bikes to communities in need. More information on tracking progress of these efforts and donating can be found on World Bicycle Relief’s dedicated webpage. We encourage all of our clients and friends to go to the website to support Lachlan’s efforts and contribute to the cause!

Colorado Landmark and Marybeth Emerson have teamed up in donating $1,475 to provide 10 specially designed, locally assembled, rugged bicycles for people in need; empowering students, health workers, and entrepreneurs in rural developing regions with life-changing mobility.

The Australian cyclist rode completely alone, made repairs to his own bike, found his own food, and, in most part, fended for himself throughout the French countryside all the way to Paris. He covered 3,424 miles in eight days (225 hours spent riding), surely finding the old-school Tour magic he was looking for!

Lachlan’s incredible journey has been followed by the world, and noted in several major publications:

The Alt Tour – Lachlan Morton beats the Tour to Paris

The Business School Lesson at the Tour de France

The Bike Racer Riding the Tour de France on His Own

On behalf of all of us at Colorado Landmark, Realtors: Congratulations, Lachlan! We are humbled to witness this Landmark Moment in your career, and are especially inspired by your generosity.

Landmark Moment: Habitat for Humanity Build Day

Our community is lacking in affordable and available housing, which is a core business problem as well as a social problem.  Colorado Landmark has partnered with Habitat for Humanity to try and solve this issue.

In addition to the hands-on contributions of the firm, like painting and labor, we are supportive of additional endeavors through the H4H Organization.

Habitat for Humanity is a nonprofit organization that helps families build and improve places to call home. Like us, H4H believes housing plays a critical role in strong and stable communities. When you think of H4H, you might imagine a family buying a volunteer-built home for an affordable price. But there’s a whole lot more that goes into the organization’s efforts, and how businesses like ours can help.

If you think about the  housing process like we do everyday, you know so many more steps are needed to get a family into a  home than a fresh coat of paint. As Realtors, we know what first-time homebuyers are looking for and what they need to succeed in this hot market. We can help Habitat provide a  suite of services:

  • Homebuyer education and one-on-one coaching
  • Down payment assistance and closing cost help
  • Mortgage pre-approval from TCHFH Lending, Inc.
  • Affordable monthly mortgage payments
  • Post-purchase support

Habitat staff are here to help clients all along the way and are always open to working with local leaders like ours.

So whether it’s paint or advice or resources and training, Colorado Landmark is committed to improving life for the families of Boulder County by doing what we do best, getting folks into homes and supporting the creation of Landmark Moments.

State’s Shop-Local Campaign Being Extended as Pandemic Relief Project

By BizWest Staff

The Colorado Office of Economic Development and International Trade is retrofitting its #ShopLocal-Colorado holiday campaign into an ongoing campaign to spotlight and support the state’s small businesses.

The original campaign was established to encourage holiday shopping at local small businesses, especially in light of the effects of COVID-19. Local communities retain 70% of revenue when shopping occurs locally, compared with 40% when shopping non-locally, the state Office of Economic Development and International Trade said in a press release.

The on-going #ShopLocalColorado campaign will equip small-business owners and economic-development leaders with social-media content and tools to encourage the shop local messaging across the state. Each month, the campaign will refresh content and work in collaboration with holidays and national opportunities to spotlight small businesses. February’s campaign will focus on small, black-owned businesses in observation of Black History Month.

“The pandemic’s economic interruption has really highlighted the importance of supporting and shopping our local small businesses,” OEDIT executive director Betsy Markey said in a written statement. “As a former small business owner, I know how important local participation is to business success and sustainability.”

The ongoing campaign serves as a toolkit resource on  oedit.colorado.gov. The toolkit will offer social media copy, graphics and links to information for audiences across the state.

With more than 611,000 small businesses representing more than 99% of Colorado businesses, small business is a driving force in the state’s economy. Encouraging Coloradans to shop their local small businesses is a way to invest money back into local economies and in the communities throughout Colorado.

DRF Team Becomes 1st in Boulder County to Receive B-Corp Certification!

Check out this exciting news from The DRF Team!


Woohoo, my team and I are pumped to kick off 2021 with some exciting news… We are now a certified B-Corporation! This certification verifies that our business is being used as a force for good.

The certification is (very) tough to get! We are the only realtor in Boulder Country to have been awarded this, and as far as we can tell, just the 2nd realtor in the whole of Colorado.

It means the world to us because we believe just making a profit doesn’t cut it anymore. It is time for businesses to show leadership, and to prove they care about people and our planet while they do business. We strive to “B the Change” we want to see in our world. While we have always felt this way, our B-Corp certification gives you the confidence that we meet the highest standards of social and environmental impact.

Here are some of the high standards we have met to become a B-Corp:

Our Governance: We meet high standards of ethics, transparency, and have even amended our founding documents to reflect our commitment to caring for people and our planet, in addition to making a profit.

Our Clients: We have worked hard to make sure our clients are delighted with every aspect of our service

Our Community: We actively support our community. Our suppliers are 100% local and we give preference to minorities. We joyously pledge at least 1% of our profits back into our community.


Our Workers: We strive to look after workers like family, compensate them well, and work towards diversity, equity, and inclusion.


Our Planet: We are now a carbon-neutral company that has done real work to reduce, reuse, and recycle. We actively seek to minimize our footprint wherever possible.

See more details here: https://bcorporation.net/


Getting B-Corp certified feels great! We challenge other Niwot businesses to consider becoming B-Corps too, feel free to ask us more about this. B the Change!

B Corp U.S. & Canada

Giving Back for the Holidays

Happy Holidays to our Colorado Landmark friends and clients! It seems surreal that we have been wishing the Boulder community all the best during this special time of year since 1977, and we are grateful and proud to arrive here again extending our warmest prayers and blessings to our loved ones and our community.

 

As a Real Estate firm, our business and passion are housing. We know that not all of our neighbors in the community are fortunate enough to have a roof over their head or a warm meal at times, and, this year especially, we want to do our part in supporting Boulder County residents access to these basic needs.

 

Housing and food insecurity remain, tragically, one of our world’s greatest pandemics. At Colorado Landmark, we are contributing to combatting this together, starting right here at home in Boulder. Boulder County has a reputation for being a wonderful, kind, and peaceful place to live, and we are committed, this holiday season and beyond, to ensure those less fortunate feel the same warmth.

 

In the spirit of the holidays this year, we are supporting to two local organizations: we are sponsoring Christmas night at the Boulder Shelter for the Homeless and are making a donation to Mother House,  a female and mother exclusive homeless facility.

 

 

Happy Holidays and Cheers to the New Year from Colorado Landmark, Realtors!

Calwood and Lefthand Canyon Fire Resources

Our hearts go out to all the people who have been affected by the Calwood and Lefthand Canyon Fires in the Boulder area over the past few days. We have several clients who have lost homes, and so many people looking for ways to help.

The Boulder Office of Emergency Management has listed information on their website about volunteering and donations.  There are many donation restrictions due to COVID-19, so through the Boulder County Community Foundation, they have set up a 2020 Fires Relief Fund.

For updates on both fires, the Boulder Office of Emergency Management has created a Calwood and Lefthand Canyon Fires Facebook Page.

There is a Virtual Community Meeting on Facebook, October 20th at 730 PM: https://www.facebook.com/events/681744022472350/

The BOEM website also has other great resources, like this Emergency Preparedness Guide.

Also, here is a resource about how to put together an emergency kit

The State of Colorado also offers resources like these Insurance Tips for Coloradans Impacted by Wildfires.

At Colorado Landmark, Realtors, we love this community that we live and work in, and are here to support you however we can.  If there are other ways that we can be of assistance during this difficult time, please reach out to us
