I moved to Boulder in 2006 and fell in love with this unique and beautiful place to live. Like thousands of others who have come here, my husband and I felt we had finally brought our family to 'someplace better.'
Why do I love this place? For over 100 years, Boulder and surrounding cities of Longmont, Louisville, Lafayette, and Erie, have placed a high value on 'livability'. Everyone feels like they are lucky to live here. Open spaces and mountain parks, kept permanently free from development, ring our city. Our mountain air is clean. Dozens of kid-friendly neighborhood parks and miles of bike paths dot this college town. More people with advanced college degrees live here (per capita) than any other town in the U.S. A thriving business district centered around the Pearl Street Mall is filled with people, creative restaurants and shops, and commands the highest commercial rental rates of any pedestrian mall in the world. It also happens to be bordered by a beautiful trout stream. Boulder supports hi-tech businesses, advanced education, robust outdoor lifestyles, natural food, ecological sustainability, and much more. My 'home town' is a safe, open, clean, fit, and incredibly prosperous community where people with innovative ideas and advanced consciousness live and thrive. All of this supports a robust and resilient real estate market for those who are lucky to live here.
I have a passion for helping others find their " home" and make money in real estate. Having had a successful career in finance and non-profit work, I entered real estate in 2015 to help people find or sell the home they love, or invest in real estate. I know Boulder and Front Range real estate's dynamics and thru my network with other realtors, investors, community leaders, and industry experts, help my clients position themselves to succeed in their real estate goals. I help people find properties often before they go on the market. I am skillful at negotiating win-win solutions so deals proceed as smoothly as possible. I am an excellent communicator and know how to devise solutions when problems arise. I attune to my client's needs and make sure these needs are met with a high level of integrity. I provide resources for clients to make informed and strategic decisions so their real estate investments bring excellent returns.
I understand that real estate is the biggest investment most people will ever make, and that there is a right way to do it. My husband, Ross, and I have bought and sold 6 homes and 3 farms as well as have ongoing investment properties. As part of our non-profit community service, we helped buy and renovate 2805 Broadway in Boulder into a multi-use conference facility, the Integral Center. We have also built a retreat center and done land reclamation work. Ross is an attorney, arbitrator and mediator with substantial experience in contract negation and real estate law, and I'm happy to have him on my team as a resource for clients.
I have raised 3 children with Ross and we enjoy many adventures together: hiking, yoga, biking, skiing, snowshoeing, wildlife watching, and traveling. I am passionate about creating good neighborhoods and conscious homes for my family and yours. Finding the right real estate is an essential part of the good life. We all need a place we love to come home to - that nourishes body, mind and spirit. And we need solid returns on our investments. Real estate is one of the most powerful ways to make money, once you know how to do it right.
Please give me a call or send me an email to set up a no-pressure meeting to explore a potential relationship. I look forward to taking with you.
