My MissionMy goal is to help you make a smarter real estate decision. I work with buyers and sellers of personal residences, vacation homes, and investment properties. I'm a licensed real estate broker in Colorado and I'm the employing broker/owner of Realty Unique. I have 16 years of professional experience and an MBA in finance (my resume)
Buying or selling real estate is often the largest financial decision that people make and intelligent real estate decisions are based on deep market knowledge. I'm an adviser to my clients and I take my fiduciary responsibility very seriously.
I'm also the primary author of the House Einstein with over 1,200 published articles about Boulder real estate. My work appears in many other blogs about Boulder as well as mainstream newspapers, including the Wall Street Journal and Daily Camera.
BackgroundI was born in New York State and I grew up in the Finger Lakes region. My hometown is a small and close knit community, where everyone knows each other, much like Boulder. I have a fantastic golden retriever named Marley and six wonderful nephews and nieces. Family is very important to me.
I earned my Bachelors in biology with a concentration in environmental science from Siena College in Loudonville, NY and an MBA in finance from the University at Albany. My graduate work was focused on investment analysis and modeling of collateralized debt. I'm a scientist at heart and finance was the closest thing to science in the business world.
Since my first experience with an investment bank, my professional work has largely been in the finance and real estate industry. Prior to House Einstein (and Realty Unique), I co-founded Silver Fern Homes. Outside of the real estate industry, I last served as the Associate Director of Capital Markets for Republic Financial in Denver. Over the years, I've co-founded several start up companies, served on boards for non-profit organizations, and worked for environmental-economics consulting companies.
Although much of my investment work involved real estate, my brokerage experience began with Windwalker Real Estate, a small boutique firm on Nantucket. At Windwalker, I was responsible for providing research to the firm's clients on real estate market conditions, helping source capital for the firm's investments, and managing the build-out of a commercial development. A desire for more sustainability, a better start-up environment, and improved quality of life led me back to Boulder in 2005. I first worked with Re/Max Horizons (now Re/Max Alliance) and a few years later, I founded Silver Fern. My latest company, Realty Unique, was founded in 2013.
Outside of WorkMy passions include adventure travel, skiing, running, cycling, hiking 14ers, camping, and motorcycling. I have a love affair with nature and the wilderness. I also enjoy learning how things work and craftsmanship. I maintain a hobby blog called Gear Thoughts.
Living a mindful lifestyle is important to me. I have regular yoga and meditation practices. I also give back to the community, through my service to area non profit organizations.
