I am a firm believer in the wisdom of owning real estate. Not only does it feel great to come home to a place that you own and love, but it's one of the best investments you can make in your future. And while purchasing property may be a complex and emotional process, it can be a wonderfully positive experience with the right broker.
I have two degrees from Naropa University; in Psychology, and in Music. I performed professionally as a singer for many years and fortunately made my first real estate investment at that time. Buying my first home changed my life immeasurably- real estate became a major passion and I got into the business professionally, hoping to help others improve their futures as well. My hobbies include yoga, meditation, reading, walks, bike rides, kayaking, growing things in the garden and traveling, and I've lived in the Boulder/Denver area for 27 years.
Experienced Buyers & Sellers
You want a Realtor who has a good balance of heart & mind, so you'll find the perfect place to call home and a wise investment, or sell your home quickly at the highest possible price. I have that balance. I am in love with properties- neighborhoods, gardens, houses & communities- you will feel my enthusiasm. The psychology background helps me understand and listen closely to your needs, and as an intuitive type with a strong aesthetic sensibility, I'll find properties that really fit you, or creatively advertise your home's best assets on the sell side. You also need a Realtor with a practical business mind. I've been successfully investing in real estate for 16 years, and I stay on top of the local market with the latest technology & statistics, for your benefit as well as mine. I'll be sure your home or rental property is an excellent long-term investment. Also your transaction will be my highest priority and you'll always be able to contact me personally, I won't pass you off to an assistant.
First Time Buyers
As a professional musician moving in those circles, I'd often hear people say things like "I can't buy a house, I'm a musician! That's not true! You can buy a home if you're self-employed, in the non-profit sector or the arts, and it will literally change your life and financial world. Although buying can be a challenge, especially the first time around, it is completely worth the effort. Don't be intimidated- I'll walk you through and we will get it done.
