Welcome to an exceptional real estate experience.
Home is a reflection of you. It’s a refuge. A place where you create memories and build dreams. It is also one of your greatest financial assets. I am dedicated to helping you discover your perfect home while building your personal wealth. With a family real estate background, I understand the importance of choosing a home that is not only a wise financial decision, but also represents your lifestyle and dreams.
My dedication to you will be apparent throughout the entire real estate process. I create an experience that is highlighted with my professionalism, support, and guidance. Central to my success is my ability to connect with you on a personal level, keeping your goals top of mind while navigating even the most challenging situations with grace and ease.
One of the greatest gifts Gretchen brought to our working relationship was an ability to listen and understand what we were looking for in a house, even when our thinking was misguided. She was incredibly patient throughout the process, easy to reach for discussion, and unfailingly kind. As a professional, Gretchen was well-informed about the real estate market in the Denver/Boulder area, market trends, and open house availabilities.
Gretchen guided me through an international move (Job transfer) in the summer of 2018. She was extremely knowledgable on the neighborhoods and options near my new job location. Better yet she respected my price points and walked me through a range of options that grounded my expectations and assisted in the decision making process. Gretchen has a bag full of tools to guide buyers through the mountains of paperwork and activities from offer to closing. She was there every step of the way and always available for support. She genuinely cares that you find the right home for the right price.
Gretchen guided us through the sale of our current home, and with her guidance, we closed on both homes in less than 6 weeks! Gretchen gave great advice about pricing and marketing our home and was incredibly supportive during the process of both buying and selling our properties. She was always professional, accessible, knowledgeable, and reliable; plus, she made the sometimes stressful events far easier than we could have imagined.
Gretchen was amazing to work with, especially as a first time home buyer. She took the time to listen to what I wanted in a house (which evolved as I saw more properties) and patiently answered all of my questions. You know from the beginning that she is “on your side” and willing to go the extra mile so you get what you want. When the time came to put an offer on “the one” she made sure my offer was strong, while still comfortably within my budget – without any pressure.
Gretchen made the home buying process approachable and achievable. It wasn’t long before she made me feel empowered and knowledgeable about making big decisions. She is also very responsive and patient as I whittled down what I was looking for. Her professionalism is top notch and her bubbly personality makes it feel like I’m shopping with a friend.
