I am a Realtor because I believe owning real estate is the best way to build wealth for the future while providing a "home" for the present. I grew up watching my parents renovate our family homes and build equity while giving us a happy home. I became a realtor because of our wild experiences buying and selling our family home in Ireland (we lived there for 10 years), and our challenging experience buying here in Fort Collins in 2015.
As a lifetime service professional (My first job was slinging scoops when I was 16 at Baskin Robbins in the Greengate Mall in SW PA), I have a healthy work-ethic and aim to be an advocate for my clients on every step of their journey. In my work as a professional wedding photographer (I started in 2006), I get to spend the happiest day with people and help bring a sense of calm in stressful situations. I believe in education and take every opportunity that I can to learn more about real estate. Along with the required real estate training, I have completed an optional 10 hour course on Colorado Contracts and Forms and have received my designation from NAR as a Certified Pricing Strategy Advisor (PSA). I am an active member of the Fort Collins Board of Realtors, Colorado Board of Realtors, and the National Association of Realtors. I aim to help my clients understand the process of the real estate transaction so that it is easy and stress-free. I have a 5 Step Process for buyers and sellers that I would love to share with you when we meet!
In my spare-time, I love spending time with my family here in Fort Collins and in Ireland. My husband is a history teacher at Fossil Ridge High School and is currently studying for his Master's Degree in US History (he is from County Clare Ireland originally and we met teaching English in Japan!). We have two very active curious boys who are currently in elementary school. We love finding interesting pockets of history and geology in Colorado, and enjoy weekend hikes and trips. My parents retired here from Pennsylvania and my sister and her family first moved to Fort Collins in the mid-90s…now we live 5 minutes away from one another which is great! We visit my in-laws in Ireland every summer. If you are planning a trip to Ireland, I would love to chat with you and share my favorite places! I have a BA degree in Art History and Fine Art. I love historic architecture/homes and the history of places like Fort Collins.
For Buyers, I especially love to help teachers and parents trying to find a home within a certain school or district, retirees moving to Colorado, and those from out-of-state or country. For Sellers, I love to help those looking for beautiful, high-quality marketing with modern bright photography, styling of the home through staging, and presenting a unique listing and marketing that makes the home stand out from the rest. I provide thorough and excellent communication with buyers and seller clients including weekly updates.
If you are coming to Fort Collins or Northern Colorado from out-of-state or the country, or you already live here, please contact me by phone or email to chat about buying or selling property. Or if you need a referral for agents in other areas, I would be happy to help. List & Buy with Lisa.
