WHAT ATTRACTED YOU TO REAL ESTATE?
The glitz, the glamour, the cars….haha, just kidding!
Initially, there were a number of things that appealed to me:
- We could actually stay in the Denver area and build a life here after my time in the Marine Corps
- We (meaning, we as a family) could be involved in our community daily
- It seemed to be an industry where you get out of it what you put into it.
Today those things still really apply, but there’s even more to the industry now that keeps me challenged, growing, and excited about what I do every day. It’s incredible how much of an impact you can truly have in people’s lives. I love that.
YOU PROBABLY WEAR A LOT OF DIFFERENT HATS. WHAT ARE THEY?
Many! Some of the most important ones are husband and dad.
WHAT HAS BEEN YOUR STRONGEST AREA OF GROWTH?
I feel like each new year in real estate presents a new opportunity for growth – some will be related to personal development, business growth, processes, team culture, knowledge/skills, etc. Lately, I’ve been really challenged to create a business where both my clients and my family can always feel like the most important people in my life. If you’ve been in real estate for any amount of time, you’ve probably experienced the same feeling!
ANY TIPS FOR FIRST TIME BUYERS OR SELLERS?
Being a first time home buyer can be one of the most exciting times in your life! To make it the most fun possible, know as much as you can about the loan and purchase process upfront before you step foot into that first home; know the costs associated with buying; know what being a home-owner means and the responsibilities you’ll take on as such.
Sellers – Understand your market; use the data in pricing and expectation management; don’t take short cuts in prepping and marketing your property; don’t let your agent use their iPhone for photos….please….
IF YOU COULD LIVE IN ANY TV HOME, WHICH ONE WOULD IT BE?
I used to think the Bachelor Mansion was pretty cool. But then all of that drama….
I think one of the most beautiful places has to be the castle in Downton Abbey!
WHAT’S YOUR DREAM VACATION HOUSE?
I’d love to have a home near an ocean or lake, maybe on a high point where there are some views. Love being by the water. Needs a gas stove, a big sitting area inside and outside for guests, huge windows.
FAVORITE HOUSE THAT YOU’VE SOLD THIS YEAR?
There was an amazing home in Bailey that I recently listed and sold. It was an ideal home lay-out, size, location. In fact, when I first helped my clients buy it a few years ago, I told them that if they ever planned to sell it, they’d have to let me know because my family would love to live there – we’d be the ones to buy it. Well, that move happened a little sooner than expected and I missed my chance for now! Either way, my favorite home is a closed home. 😊
WOULD YOU EVER WANT TO LIVE IN A CASTLE?
WHY SHOULD CO HOMEBUYERS CHOOSE A YOUR CASTLE AGENT?
For one, I believe we have some of the most helpful and just generally good people around. That creates a culture of love and support which spills over into how we serve our clients. Second, being a great agent for your clients requires having the knowledge and data to be able to give and support recommendations – We have no shortage of information at our fingertips! I know that when you combine great people with great resources and information, great things happen.
