People ask me why I became a Realtor. There are many reasons that I gravitated toward a real estate career such as: the uniqueness of properties is fascinating, the investment component is fulfilling, and the negotiation aspect fuels my competitive nature. But the number one reason that being a Realtor is so gratifying to me is the human element. It is a joy to help first time home buyers buy their first home, I am grateful when families help me assist with a family member in selling their "last home" (many times it is a home that they have raised their family in), and it is very satisfying to help a family buy or sell a challenging property. At the end of the day, helping folks with the emotional process of buying or selling a property is very gratifying on a human level.
I specialize in relocation, residential sales and small apartment buildings. I have over 20 years of experience in the Northern Colorado real estate market, with an emphasis in Boulder County and surrounding areas. I also have considerable knowledge of the Boulder County investment property and rental markets, having owned and managed several investment properties in Boulder County and surrounding areas.
I obtained a Bachelor of Science degree in Electrical Engineering from New Mexico State University and a Master of Science degree in Computer Information Systems from Denver University. I worked for IBM in Boulder, Colorado for 12 years - the last several years spent in management and account management positions. I left IBM to hold director-level and account management positions with several start-up information technology companies in the Boulder County area. I then left the information technology industry to pursue my true passion - residential and investment real estate.
My career in the information technology industry has given me extensive experience serving clients with the utmost respect and care, successfully negotiating contracts to achieve my clients' goals, and building strong relationships with business partners. My success is built around a strong referral network that is the result of many happy clients. I have represented my clients in over $50 million worth of real estate transactions.
I am currently on the board of directors for the Boulder Area Realtor Association, and I am a member of the Boulder Rotary Club. I also am one of the founders of my BNI chapter and I am very involved in the local community. I live in Boulder and have two children. We love the Colorado lifestyle including enjoying the outdoors and various sport activities. In the Spring I am active helping out my kids little league teams - in the Fall I am active running my kids around to a variety of soccer practices and games! What a great place to live and raise a family!
I am truly honored and appreciative when my clients invite me into their lives to help them achieve their real estate goals.
