Broker Associate, CRS, ABR, GRI, e-PRO
My Client-First Philosophy As a Colorado native, 34-year resident of Boulder County, and 25 year veteran in real estate, I know the territory! From downtown Boulder to the surrounding cities, I can find the lifestyle you are seeking to call home. Serving people has always been my passion in business. My real estate career gives me the opportunity to lead people successfully through a complicated and often overwhelming process to realize their dreams in a new home or sound investment. It is a huge responsibility – one that I take very seriously. And it’s enormously gratifying. To make it all happen draws upon my strengths as problem solver, strategist, consensus builder and strong negotiator, making the process quicker, easier and resulting in well-informed decision making. For you, this means a home purchase or sale that is smooth and well-strategized for your family’s situation, saving you time, money, effort and anxiety. My Experience My real estate career has involved buyer brokerage for resale and new construction homes, relocation, listing and marketing homes for sellers, rentals/investment property, 1031 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 gives my clients quick access to important information and services.

I love to entertain, cook, garden, go dancing, travel & renovate homes.
