You could say that real estate is in my blood. My mom likes to tell people that because she dragged me to her open houses as a young child, I became a Realtor. Maybe! What I do know is that I love it! I love it because it allows me to help people reach their goals – whether it is buying or selling, determining whether they should move or remodel. Either way, I am an integral part of that process, counseling my clients through the various decisions. I jokingly say, that in some way it helps fulfill my underlying desire to be a psychologist. Being part of the emotions and decisions, simple or complicated, is something I welcome. I believe my honest, straightforward approach helps people easily wade through the nuances and nuisances of real estate. After 17 years in the industry, I can honestly say that no transaction is the same, every client is different, every home has its own unique makeup and those are facets of this work that motivate me daily.
My real estate career began in Sun Valley, Idaho where I worked for a developer of a new private golf course community. After moving to Portland in 1996, I became the key support person for a seasoned Realtor. This proved to be an invaluable opportunity as it taught me to manage transactions and anticipate breakdowns. While in Portland, I worked for 2 established Brokerages; The Hasson Company and Realty Trust Group, Inc. 2009 moved our family to Louisville, CO where we enjoy a small town life, sunny days and lots of outdoor activities. I am proud to have hung my license with Staufer Team Real Estate, a local brokerage with a strong reputation for taking good care of clients and investing in the community. Not too mention we work hard; producing 99 million in sales in 2013 with only 15 agents, all of whom have years of experience.
When I am not selling real estate, my time is spent with my husband, our 2 young children and golden retriever. We enjoy spending time exploring Colorado, hanging out with friends and watching our kids in lots of sports! Juggling busy schedules is a daily challenge, yet my competitive nature and passion to help families find spaces to create their memories make it a worthwhile challenge to pursue.
I look forward to helping you discover and experience all the wonders of Boulder County, CO.
