Welcome to Colorado Springs!

Answers to Your Burning Questions.

Thank you for visiting Discover Colorado Springs.  If you have landed here you must want to know something.

In fact, I imagine that you want an answer to one of the two following questions.

  1. You want to know who built the site for some reason.
  2. You want to know why we built the site.

Board Family

Who Built the Site?

I’m Chad Board.  Call me the guilty party.  That is me in the maroon shirt up above back when I still had a little hair. (And how sad is it that I consider that having a little hair?)

I am a former real estate agent, a real estate appraiser and a writer. I worked my way through college doing construction. When I moved to Colorado, I was a real estate investor. Then, I became a real estate appraiser. Eventually, I found myself adding a real estate license.

As a real estate expert, I have a thorough understanding of real estate properties, neighborhoods and real estate agents. I love the outdoors. I love to climb 14ers, I hike and bike local trails.

My wife Teresa is my partner in the site (and everything else).  She is a free-lance editor, writer and mom.  (Well…she’s not a free lance mom.)  She is my best friend.

Together, we have three kids ages 7, 9, and 12.  We relocated here from Phoenix in 2000. We lived up in the mountains for a while, then we moved into Colorado Springs. Which brings us to…

Why Did We Build the Site?

Family Christmas 2013

Our kids are getting bigger. Christmas 2013.

When we were contemplating the move from Teller County (the mountains above Colorado Springs), we found that we did not have all the information we needed to plan our move. Even after living in the area for several years, we didn’t have the information we needed.

We started gathering information. Because I’m a real estate appraiser, I knew a lot about neighborhoods, but I didn’t know much about the schools.  We didn’t really know very much about the parks and the awesome outdoor life possible in Colorado Springs.

That led to the creation of this site. We decided that we wanted to take all of the information we were putting together and create a website for other people who were in the same situation.  At the same time, we wanted to tell other people who might come to visit about just how cool Colorado Springs is.

In 2011, we moved Oklahoma City, Oklahoma for a work project. We decided to keep the site going remotely so we can continue to help other families who are relocating, vacationing, or looking to buy or sell a house in Colorado Springs. I’ve kept my real estate license active and I can help you connect with the best real estate agent in Colorado Springs (now that I’ve left, of course).
