Karen Isaac ~ Serving Boulder and Gilpin Counties
Welcome to my R E/MAX site. I am realtor living in the mountain town of Nederland. I've been selling real estate since 2001, starting in Arizona. I have the experience, knowledge, and network to help you sell or buy a mountain property. There are many challenges unique to mountain properties that are best solved by a local realtor familiar with the issues and the array of possible solutions (wells, water quality, septic systems, boundary lines, legal access, title issues, radon, Boulder County building department, horse property, FHA lending requirements . . ). I can help you successfully navigate this process to a smooth closing.
BUYERS: I love mountain living and feel it's a privilege to introduce prospective buyers to the area. We have breathtaking views, wonderful skiing at Eldora or in the back country, spectacular hiking and biking throughout the surrounding National Forests, great fishing on Boulder Creek, a cute and friendly town, good schools, a new library on the creek, a community center, afirst run movie theater, an outdoor ice rink in the winter and tennis courts in the summer, and a wonderful sense of community. Whether you are looking for a starter home, family home, grand estate, horse property, vacation home, or vacant land, I can help you find what you are looking for. Once you are ready to make an offer, I will help you put your best offer together, represent you in negotiations and see that you get the property you desire at terms that feel right to you. I pride myself on being attentive to your needs and help you close successfully. SELLERS: I specialize in listing properties. I begin with a free and detailed market analysis, pulling all the data on your home (county records, well info, septic info, previous MLS, public records, and aerial map with lot lines), comparable active listings, and 12 months of comparable solds. From this data, I will give you a very accurate market value of your property. Pricing your home close to market value will give you the best chance to sell in the current market conditions. By pulling all the data on your home, I can alert you to any known issues and help you resolve them so there are no surprises. Next, I will help you stage and prepare for photos. Great photos and effective marketing sell homes faster than anything I know and I can market your home better than any other realtor in the area. I have my own marketing person who was a professional photographer in NYC for 13 years, before moving to Nederland in 2006. He photographs all my houses, edits the pictures and loads them in the MLS and other real estate websites. We create beautiful flyers for our office, the Boulder office, and your property. We also send a top quality postcard out to the neighborhood, local realtors, and my mailing list of possible buyers. Your home will be featured in the local paper, the Mountain Ear, which I have a weekly real estate column in. I also can provide a video slide show on disk at your home for prospective buyers and uploaded to select real estate websites. A property features list and book on your home will also be compiled and placed at your home to greet prospective buyers. Once we have an offer, I will represent you in negotiations and help you realize the best overall contract that feels right for you. I pride myself on being attentive to your needs and help you close successfully.
