We’re Number One!!!

Yes, we love our home city. Evidently lots of people agree, as Denver was named the NUMBER ONE place to live by U.S. News and World Report
. We pulled a 7.8 out of 10 overall, but 9.9 on desirability! Colorado Springs sneaked in at number five, giving Colorado two spots in the top ten. They also did a wonderful job of creating a spot where cities can be viewed, evaluated and sorted. You can find out average commute sorted by zip code, the job market, housing market and pretty much anything else you wanted to know about our fine city (and others, but just so we can gloat)! Full details can be found here .

Spring Break

It is that time of year again and many of you will be taking a break either with your kids, or for your kids this spring.

Either way, we know that our kids will be off from school for some portion of time and often, that messes up your cleaning schedule.

If possible, please
let us know immediately if you are going to change your scheduled clean in any way. We are doing everything we can to control our costs, and we still haven’t figured out a way to solve our lockout problem (yes some people just aren’t home when we arrive, or don’t call to cancel…you would be amazed).

So if there are changes to your schedule this spring, please let us know so we can manage our schedule and keep that efficiency up.

In the meantime, enjoy the end of our winter and the beginning of a wonderful spring!

Denver‘s Changing Skyline

Man, things are changing fast in Denver. On top of being named the number one city to live we are growing and expanding downtown like crazy.

We see all of the construction and we wonder what it might look like in a few years.

An enterprising young man used Google
Earth to project what our city will look like with existing and soon to be approved projects going forward. The bottom line? Our skyline will look radically different pretty soon.

The link takes a while to load, but is worth the view. Data was pulled from,
which is another good resource to find out what is happening with development in Denver. The skyline link can be found here.

American Express Users

It has come to our attention that our American Express billing label is incorrect. This is not an issue on our end, but one that we are attempting to resolve directly with them. Evidently AMEX charges for your cleaning services are sometimes labeled “Concert Concepts” rather than Denver Concierge.

We don’t know who “Concert Concepts” is, but we are receiving the money in our
account. So, there is no action required on your part, but we wanted you to know that we are aware of the issue and hope to have it resolved in the next week or so. Thanks for your patience and thanks to those of you that pointed this issue out to us!

The Power of Words

Yes, we love words. We write lots of them each month, and we sure say a lot of them.

The folks at Buffer
have written an exceptional piece on what words (and phrases) motivate us the most. They also list some of the ones that don’t. We found this to be a pretty impactful piece and gathered some ideas we are going to begin using immediately.

We hope you agree, the link to the article is here.

Queen Bee Corner

by Angela

I will be out of the office part of this week for a medical procedure. Jenny will be answering your calls in
my absence (she is a sweetie).  If you have any schedule changes that you usually email to me, please call the office and run them by her. Any other non-urgent correspondence please go ahead and leave on my email.  I will be back on email within a couple of days.

Until this occurrence I have been self- sufficient and unaware of all the wonderful home help that is out there in Denver.  Our concierge partner at As You Wish, Allison Farrar, found a great dog sitter who will come three times a day and take care of the beasts.   King Soopers
delivers groceries within a two-hour window and I even found a company that cleans up the yard after the dogs.  And of course I have a super house cleaning company!


Our Fleet

We wanted to share a photo of our fleet, getting ready to come make your homes shine!

Our ladies are sure happy to be in our new fleet of Kia Sorentos. We hope you like the new look when you see us roll up to your home.

Special thanks again to our friends at Erlich I-25 Kia and the best GM anyone could ask for in Ron Volk. If you are in the market for a new vehicle and have been considering a Kia, please reach out to Ron and he will take excellent care of you. Mention Denver Concierge for a special offer!

You can email Ron directly here.
