Where are you from originally and what brought you to Denver?
I’m a Colorado native. I was born in Fort Collins but have lived in the Denver metro area for a while.
What do you enjoy most about living in Denver?
What’s not to love? The diversity that this state as a whole provides and the exciting growth that we are seeing is only bringing more options to this city. My favorites will always be the amazing hiking and growing food scene. However, the city’s cultural and art scene is starting to get noticed. There are many incredible museums, galleries and performances that will inspire art, culture and music lovers.
Have you had other careers before becoming a real estate broker?
Before real estate, I spent a large amount of time in the hospitality and management consultation sector. Both provided a tremendous foundation and helped hone my ability to help my clients adjust and adapt to all scenarios that we see in the real estate journey.
How did you become interested in real estate?
Who doesn’t love houses…isn’t this why HGTV and other real estate shows are so popular? We all love touring open houses and watching the thrilling before and after renovations where we get lost in our own opinions of every house featured. Why not make it a career and have the great pleasure of helping people achieve their real estate dreams?
What can a home buyer or seller expect when they work with you?
A friend, an ally, and a true advocate who knows that buying or selling real estate is one of life’s most rewarding and exciting experiences. With your best interests in mind, I will expertly manage your real estate transaction from start to finish, and negotiate the best terms possible while providing tangible value each step of the way.
Being a real estate broker has given me the ability to provide a high degree of service and value to individuals on a daily basis. It’s about moving fast, doing what it takes, being proud and enjoying the ride – I can’t think of anything professionally that matches that.
“With your best interests in mind, I will expertly manage your real estate transaction from start to finish, and negotiate the best terms possible while providing tangible value each step of the way.”
Complete this sentence. If you really, really knew me, you would know that…?
I internalize everything and over-analyze even the most lighthearted remarks.
Give us a snapshot of an ordinary moment in your life that brings you great joy
A very simple answer is being with family and loved ones who are important to me in my life. Period. It doesn’t matter what I am doing, or where, surround me with my “tribe” and life will take care of itself and never fails to leave a smile on my face.
