Blackhawk Living Testimonials

I am thankful and humbled by our success. Blackhawk Living has grown from an idea in my head to a monthly platform where residents share ideas, stories, pictures and events as well as the place where we find and recommend the best local, trusted businesses to our neighbors. I am thankful for the residents who donate their time each month to create this magazine as well as the sponsors that make this magazine possible. We have been able to contribute to and sponsor hundreds of nonprofits, fundraisers and events.

Thanks again for everyone’s support!

It has been such a pleasure working with Jo Peek the Publisher of Blackhawk Living our neighborhood magazine. When Jo first approached us with the idea of a neighborhood magazine through Best Version Media we were so excited for Jo. In fact, we were the very first to sign up with Jo for space in the Blackhawk Living magazine. Every month we look forward to keeping readers updated on the market activity in our community as well as showcasing listings we may have and promoting our real estate services. Blackhawk living has been a great way to keep brand awareness in a community where there are a lot of realtors and competition. It is wonderful when you run into people in the community who really appreciate the marketing and consider us as a relevant real estate resource in the community. It has been great being part of a magazine that showcases so many wonderful people and businesses and Jo Peek has been nothing but professional and wonderful to work with.

Blackhawk Living Magazine is a wonderful way to bring the community together. We love reading all the fun articles and seeing which businesses take part in making the magazine come together every month.
~ Megan Scott, Planted Table Meals

I love Blackhawk Living Magazine because it is so much fun to read about my neighbors that I thought I knew, but don’t really “know.” The featured family on the cover is a favorite of mine. I also trust that any advertiser in the magazine is legitimate. It is a beautiful magazine and I can’t believe we get it free. Thanks.
~ Bobbi Bach

Each issue of Blackhawk Living reflects the great care taken in its publication. The articles are short, direct, and relevant to our community. I especially enjoy reading about the travels of our neighbors as they help me in planning our future trips. Calendar of Events is a good way of keeping informed about current and upcoming events in and around our neighborhood.
