Each and every week, I like to sit down and write blog posts to share with you about many different things from real estate advice to fun activities to do around Denver during the summer. I realized that a majority of my readers I have worked with in some capacity or another but others may not know that much about me. This week, I thought I would tell you a little bit about my life and how I got to where I am today, doing what I love.
I have called Colorado my home for quite a while now. I was raised in Northglenn and attended Northglenn High School and Mesa State College. I started in the real estate business when I was 20 years old and being a native, I have watched Denver grow and expand in ways that are almost impossible to describe. I saw Coors Field, the Pepsi Center and DIA built in my lifetime. I have watched Elitch Gardens move from 38th and Tennyson to Downtown Denver. In 1994 I had the pleasure of flying out of Stapleton Airport to go to Germany and back into DIA three weeks later as it had opened as I was coming back to Colorado.
In my adult life, I have moved 14 times, trust me, I’m not bragging about that! 12 of the moves have been within Colorado and two were in Seattle. Basically, I am an expert packer and mover, so if you ever have any questions when it comes time to move into your new place, just let me know. This skill has come in handy with my clients seeing as I have helped thousands of people move during my career as a real estate agent.
I like to invest in real estate and love anything to do with it. I have sold properties from $5000 dollars to over a million dollars. I have sold houses that were just an imagination in the builder’s head to over 100 years old. From renting or buying their first place to empty nesters wanting to downsize to investors building their portfolios, I have assisted them all in finding the perfect place. I have also helped hundreds of landlords lease and manage their rental portfolios.
As a real estate investor myself I know how important it is to take care of such a large asset. One thing I love most about my job is seeing how happy my clients are when they get the new keys to “their” new home, there is something really magical about helping people find their first or their forever house.
That’s a bit about my life and job experience here in Colorado. If you are thinking it is time to take the next step and buy a place, I am ready to help you find the right one. Give me a call today and let’s set up a time to discuss what you are looking for so we can start painting a picture of where you will be spending your days and nights with your family and loved ones.
