Your Local Boulder Realtor
Your Local Boulder Realtor
I moved to Boulder in 1997 from the East Coast, thinking I might be here for a few years. I fell in love with the mountains, beautiful weather, recreation trails and paths, top restaurants, and everything that makes Boulder special. Now I call Colorado home. Having lived, worked, and played in many wonderful and diverse pockets of Boulder County, I'm a community and neighborhood expert on every area from Table Mesa to Pine Brook Hills, Mapleton Hill to Martin Acres, and all the other unique neighborhoods the town has to offer.
I love being a Realtor because it's about developing relationships and helping people achieve their goals and dreams. My ultimate goal is for my clients to be happy with the results of my services. I'm here to guide you through all the details of your real estate transactions. I work hard to earn my client's trust by providing experienced advice, insider market knowledge, and unparalleled customer service.
