A Real Estate Developer with Respect for the Land
"Under all lies the land" is the guiding philosophy for Koelbel.
As a community developer, Koelbel and Company is ever mindful that
they are a custodian of the land for a short period of time, yet
have the opportunity to leave a legacy for future generations. That
is why each Koelbel community is developed around distinguishing
natural characteristics such as water, open space, parks, and
unique landscape. At Rendezvous, Koelbel and Company has
established a gathering place for generations to come-a legacy for
Koelbel, but more importantly, a legacy for families like yours to
call their own.

Koelbel's Fraser Valley Connection
Creating a destination resort community at Rendezvous was a
natural fit for the Koelbel team because the Koelbel family has
four generations of history in the Fraser Valley. The Koelbel
family previously owned nearby Byers Peak Ranch. This makes
Rendezvous not just an investment project, but a labor of love.
Said company president Walter A. (Buz) Koelbel, Jr. "Our underlying
philosophy in everything is respect for the land," said Koelbel,
"but this principle has never felt more personal than with
Rendezvous." The Koelbel family is preserving and sharing their
appreciation of Colorado's incredible beauty and unique lifestyles
by making Rendezvous an outdoor-oriented, year-round community
where family and friends can have the same memorable opportunities
they have enjoyed for generations.

Koebel's Commitment to the Local
Koelbel and Company's commitment to preserving and enhancing the
Fraser Valley's natural and historic heritage is mirrored in The
Rendezvous Foundation, a not-for-profit organization established by
Koelbel when work on the master-planned resort community first
began. From the opening of Rendezvous' first neighborhood, Koelbel
has contributed a quarter-percent from each and every home sale to
fund the foundation's important work, including its support of the
Grand Foundation, with a host of local charity sponsorships, and of
the Grand County Historical Association, charged with preserving
the Valley's historic sites such as the Cozens Ranch and
