WORK WITH ME

 

My Client-First Philosophy

The expertise of a 28-year real estate veteran coupled with the care of a trusted friend!

Serving people has always been my passion in real estate. It is the essence of what I do. You expect integrity, experience and market knowledge from a real estate professional and that is what I provide. What I add is a level of caring that all my clients have noted and appreciated. My clients feel a sense of being guided by a trusted friend. Add that to the marketing power and resources of Re/Max of Boulder, and you have a combination guaranteed to provide you with an exceptional experience!

I am a Colorado native and 28-year veteran in Boulder County real estate and the surrounding areas. My proven track record has prepared me for all the challenges one would expect from Colorado’s ever-changing market…housing shortage, building regulations, varying short or long-term rental guidelines, shifting patterns of appreciation and demand.  I want you to understand the process; the market; the pros, cons and potential of each property; the options available to you and the strategy I provide to get you where you to your dream destination. This environment draws upon my strengths as problem solver, strategist, consensus builder, strong negotiator and advocate for your interests and needs. For you, this means a home purchase or sale that is smooth and well-strategized, saving you time, money, effort and anxiety while enjoying the fun and excitement of it all!

 

My Professional Experience & Credentials

My real estate career has involved buyer brokerage for resale and new construction homes, relocation, listing and marketing homes for sellers, investment property for rental or fix and flip, 1031 tax-deferred exchanges, and renovations — a range of experience that helps my clients to look at the transaction from many different perspectives. My excellent reputation and extensive industry network of professional lenders, inspectors, contractors, stagers, attorneys and more give my clients quick access to important information and services.

My Life Outside the Office

On a personal note, I have a high-school aged son and am owned by two demanding cats. Here at home I am an avid skier and hiker, but I’ve also snorkeled with dolphins in Hawaii and ridden to distant waterfalls in Mexico. I love to entertain, travel, cook, garden, read, dance & renovate homes. My friends say I have a robust sense of humor and I do love to laugh, but I also value the trust my friends and customers place in me and the long-term relationships that trust has sponsored.
