I am pleased to provide a letter of reference for Luke McFetridge (Noble Venture). I have known Luke for nearly five years now, working with him at length and in great detail on efforts to revitalize Midtown Fort Collins. More recently, I’ve had the great pleasure of working with him on other business development ventures in my role as president of the RiNo Art District in Denver. In my time working with him on a number of initiatives, I’ve seen Luke demonstrate leadership, forward thinking and creative problem solving. He is able to advance and explain complicated community challenges, bring together diverse perspectives and champion solutions. He works tirelessly to get projects to the finish line, and do so in a way that is collaborative and thoughtful. Recently, I was involved with Luke on his efforts to establish Fort Collins’ first Business Improvement District (BID) in Midtown. From idea to implementation, he has led the community forward every step of the way. In addition, Luke has become a trusted friend and advisor on community development and private development matters. I cannot recommend Luke highly enough.

Over the past 8 years I have had the pleasure of getting to know and working with Luke McFetridge (Noble Venture) on a variety of projects ranging from the repositioning of a property in Arvada to the full redevelopment of the former Twin Peaks Mall in Longmont. My over 30 year retail real estate career has placed me on both sides of the retail development table, first as a retailer and then as a retail developer. I have operated a successful consulting practice working with many of the top retail developers, landowners, and cities in the region since 2002. As retail is changing, there is a need to look at things in a totally new way. It is not uncommon to see may retail developers and owners still approaching projects the same way they did 20 years ago. Evolution in retailing is now more important than at any other time. Looking for new and fresh ideas that can adapt to the changing retail environment is an integral part of retail development / redevelopment in today’s environment. Working with Luke and seeing his thoughtful and creative approach to projects is refreshing and in my eyes sets him apart from other property owners and developers. Luke is highly thought off and well respected from inside the municipalities I work with and we are excited when he brings a project in.

Without a doubt, I confidently recommend Luke and the retail expertise he can bring.

Noble Venture is indeed living up to its name. Partners Dave Lund and Luke McFetridge are bringing their in-depth experience in real estate acquisition and development together to forge new opportunities for their investors and themselves.

What makes their venture Noble? It is their commitment to their core principles of honesty, integrity, and collaboration. In my experience in coaching business leaders for the past 38 years it is apparent to me that those who build businesses based on trust build relationships that endure. These relationships then create reciprocal benefit and therefore generate more business.

Noble Venture is also committed to building community with its investments and the partners’ involvement with local organizations like……. So, I am eager to endorse this bold enterprise and grateful for Dave and Luke as enlightened entrepreneurs and leaders who are and lighting the way for others to follow.

As a tenant, my relationship with Dave Lund (Noble Venture) has been everything you’d want in landlord dealings. A simple and seamless automatic rent payment portal, very prompt responses via text or email whenever I’ve had to reach out, and equally prompt action for any repairs that have been needed in my 2 years in the unit. He takes a far more humanistic approach that I’d happily welcome in the industry.
