Locals + Culture

Here at cityhomeCOLLECTIVE, we take the process of selling homes a bit more personally than most. By spending time with our clients in their spaces, we get to truly feel what it’s like to live in their home, where we have conversations that get to the root of what makes it such a special spot. We ask the homeowners about the parties they’ve had, the best spot for morning coffee, what the unique aspects of their space say about them and what they’ll miss most about it. For my current clients on Chandler Drive, their answer to what they’ll miss about their home is also the first thing I felt when visiting: the tranquility.

This home truly feels like an oasis in the city, completely quiet apart from the birds that visit the tinkling fountain in the backyard. Perched above the street behind glimmering aspen trees, their home has a very private and sophisticated feel, with a backyard that can be enjoyed without another soul in sight – unless of course they’re invited, which we were lucky enough to be. Our agents enjoyed happy hour and conversation on the peaceful patio, chatting with the homeowners about their world travels and future plans for an international move. With a home full of art, artifacts, photographs and other personal items collected from their adventures, there was no shortage of stories and memories to be shared.

The takeaway: no matter where they traveled over the past 17 years, they were always happy to come home

The honeybee. We are not so different from these busy pollen gatherers. Like us, they are communal. Like us, they wiggle their bodies when excited. And, when conditions are right, they experience something akin to happiness. Like us. Our connection to them dates back thousands of years, and they...
