RE/MAX of Boulder Realtor Will Calkins is originally from Chicago’s historic Oak Park area. He grew up exploring Frank Lloyd Wright homes, painting Victorian homes in historic neighborhoods, and swimming and racing bicycles across the Midwest. He also spent time traveling – studying abroad in Spain twice and living in Spain, Italy, and Venezuela before moving to Colorado. Having traveled extensively, he recognizes that few places can offer the dazzling beauty and lifestyle of Colorado’s mountains, sunny climate and culture.
Biking has continued to be an important part of his recreation and work. For him, hopping on his bike is an active way to explore neighborhoods and the outdoors. When he lists homes, he learns about neighborhoods they’re in by biking through them to envision what it’s like to live there. Would he walk to a local coffee shop? Drive to a Park-n-ride? Commute by car? Transportation considerations and neighborhood conveniences are just as important to him as the layout, style and décor of the house itself.
Will lives in Longmont’s Renaissance neighborhood and he’s a neighborhood expert for the “Bouldmont” area between Boulder and Longmont, which includes North Boulder, Niwot, Gunbarrel, Hygiene, Southwest Longmont and Lyons.
