I've lived in Boulder, Louisville, and Lafayette since 1999 and have the benefit of being located in the RE/MAX Alliance Louisville office. This gives me a solid knowledge of market trends and values. I also have an extensive referral network of other experienced agents throughout Colorado and the entire United States.



Boulder has been described as "twenty-five square miles, surrounded by reality" and many would say that is an apt description. A beautiful college town, nestled at the base of the foothills of the Rocky Mountains, Boulder has developed a reputation as personality all its own. Since Boulder is an island with finite growth potential (it is surrounded by a greenbelt to preserve the integrity of the city, and prevent its sprawl), housing prices have been steadily increasing, with the average price per square foot hovering at around $300 (data taken December '12). This equates to a 1000 square foot home costing $300,000, just to put it in perspective. With its high quality school system and healthy life style, many agree it is worth the price to live in paradise.

The historic mining town of Louisville (pronounced "Lewis-ville" not "Louie-ville") has jumped in recognition in a big way. Along with being named Money Magazine's "Best Place to Live" in 2009 and 2011, it also placed among the top ten "Best Towns for Families" in Family Circle magazine's July 2012 edition. What makes Louisville so great? Its thriving Main St scene keeps getting better, with more local restaurants and shops being opened all the time. The summer music concert series, Street Faire, Farmer's market, and the Winter outdoor ice skating rink and free horse drawn carriage rides offer something for everyone. New and improved public facilities, such as the library in Old Town, and Louisville Community Park provide fantastic gathering places, and host a variety of events year round. It is a safe town, with great schools and a real feeling of community, interwoven with 26 miles of trails and bicycle paths, 26 city parks, and 1800 acres of open space. Louisville is conveniently located along the US 36 corridor which leads south/east to Denver, the airport, and the plains, and north/west to Boulder and the mountains. I love living in Louisville with my family, and would be happy to share my insider knowledge with you.

Lafayette is located North of Denver, and East of Boulder (for the most part between Arapahoe and Northwest Parkway, and bordering HWY 287). It is a historic mining town that has preserved its Old Town district along Public Rd. Housing ranges from historic cottages and bungalows built in the late 1800s, to brand new energy-efficient communities. A number of events held yearly along Public Rd, including the Peach Festival, Oatmeal Festival, and Lafayette Days, help showcase why Lafayette is a destination for people moving to East Boulder County.

Erie is in both Boulder and Weld counties, and is located just west of I-25. It is currently a bedroom community, with no major grocery stores within town limits, but the mayor and planning commission have big plans for the little town. The new state-of-the-art recreation center and library are just a part of the revitalization, and there are plans for a number of new housing developments, some of which are already in construction phases. With its own airport, award winning golf course, and a historic Old Town along Briggs St., along with it's newly developed Erie Parkway, Erie has a lot to offer.

Located to the south of US 36, and mainly to the East of McCaslin Blvd, Superior's population hovered at around 250 since it's main coal mine closed in 1945.  With the construction of new homes in the 90s, Superior experienced a growth rate bringing its current population to right around 10,000.  Anchored by big box stores like Target, Costco, and Whole Foods, and providing easy access to Boulder and Denver, Superior's larger homes in a variety of price points appeal to many families and individuals looking to live in Boulder County.

The Northwest Denver Suburbs of Westminster, Broomfield and Arvada are ideally located between Denver and the Boulder area. They are also only a quick ten minute drive to I-25, which offers easy access to Colorado's largest cities including Denver, Greeley-Fort Collins, Castle Rock, Colorado Springs, and Pueblo.

The area is surrounded by a plethora of stores and restaurants, including both chain and privately owned businesses. Additionally, Westminster and Broomfield have excellent school districts, several wonderful parks and natural spaces, and are significantly more affordable than Boulder County. Because of these charms, the area is growing quickly with new homes on the market every day!
