Personal Data

 Hello and thank you for taking the time to look online for additional information about my residential and green real estate services! I look forward to the opportunity to see if we are a good fit to work together.   

 I graduated from Colorado State with a bachelors degree in Real Estate Finance in 2008 and went straight into residential brokerage. Being one of the few college graduates that desired to work in their field of study, residential brokerage was the best move at the time given the Great Recession was crashing everything around me, just as I was leaving the comfortable nest of college. 10+ years and 300+ transactions later I can now see what a blessing it all was. 

 

 My focus is Northern Colorado with proficiency in Green & High Performance Homes, historical properties in our Downtown communities, basic investment, and new construction. Over the years I have developed unique tools and systems to help my clients not only find the right home, but to also take any home and turn it into an energy efficient, comfortable, and healthy home. We do this by first ensuring that the home is the best fit for you (proper amounts of beds/baths, ideal location, right price, etc) and then running a simple set of analysis to provide you with reports and solutions for any opportunities your home has. Most commonly we are helping increase insulation, decrease drafty points of entry, and adding renewable energy. No two houses are the same which is why we customize each report. 

 

 I am, and have been, very involved in the local community serving on various boards and non-profits. In addition I am heavily involved with the National Association of Realtors® as an Advisor on their Green Resource Council. This is very exciting work shaping the national, state, and local Realtor boards green education and community outreach. One of our biggest tasks at hand is helping Realtors market and sell green homes for more value, and then getting the appraiser to agree to that value.  

 

 On a personal note I have an amazing wife and 3 stellar kids. We like to play in the Colorado outdoors with our typical outings involving hiking adventures, rock climbing, golf at Fox Acres, skipping rocks, swimming (even in cold water, much to my chagrin), and cruisin' bikes. Winter time is all about sledding and skiing. I live for the time with my family and love what having our home does for us. It is with the deep appreciation that I show up for my clients. Home is one of the most important aspects in creating a person’s, or family’s, sense of place. I look forward to helping you create the most amazing home-base, allowing you to set your sights on living the life you desire.  

 Lastly, I am a Leo and love banana ice cream.....a lot.
