CO-OWNER/BROKER ASSOCIATE

I love the city of Denver, a good IPA, real estate, and Airbnb.

 

My philosophy is to listen, educate and advocate. I want to learn your goals, provide you the information needed to make an informed decision, and then represent your interests in any negotiation.

I am also Denver's Airbnb expert. Along with my wife (Erin), I have hosted more than 150 guests. I teach classes on short-term rentals and host seminars on the current state of Airbnb laws along the front range. I specialize in finding people homes in which they can legally host a profitable Airbnb.

 

Erin and I own our primary residence in Capitol Hill and own several rental properties nearby. We also own a duplex in Colorado Springs. 

 

Prior to real estate, I spent 10 years as a journalist. In my professional career, I won multiple national awards for my feature writing and my investigative work. While a student in college, I won the Hearst National Writing Championship, affectionately dubbed "The Pulitzer of college journalism." Many of the skills I honed through journalism translate to real estate. Researching, working with people one on one, and chasing after something -- in this case a home, not a story.

 

What's your story? Reach out today. Let's chat and get started.

 

I'm a board game enthusiast who will never turn my back on a Denver patio. This city has served as the backdrop for my major life events and is my absolute favorite place in the world.

 

I really enjoy working with first time homebuyers (because it's nice to see someone accomplish a goal) and investors (because I love, love, love spreadsheets.) 

I believe good communication is critical to client service, and I am a big fan of transparency. What does this mean for you? We will always get back to you and in whatever way your prefer: email, text, phone, Morse code. We don't care, we just want you to be happy.  Likewise, we make sure you know what is going on at all times with your deal and what to expect next.

 

Behind the scenes, we work to be up to date on trends, neighborhoods, interest rates, and everything else that's important to you.
