The purchase of a home is an emotional process that is also a very large investment. I find it extremely rewarding helping buyers find their dream homes. Backed by a team I am able to dedicate 100% of my time to you throughout your entire buying process from the initial home search all the way through to closing. I take a very personal approach with all of my clients, which enables me to better understand your needs and what you are looking for in a home as well as what your goals are in homeownership. I help a wide range of buyers, so whether you are a 1st time home buyer, military member PCSing to the Springs, or looking for your dream home I would love to help.
The greater Colorado Springs area consists of several surrounding cities including; Monument, Palmer Lake, Manitou Springs, Fountain, Security, Black Forest, Falcon, Peyton and Colorado Springs. Our real estate market breaks these various areas down into over 21 broader areas for ease of classification, market analysis and home search. Each of these broader areas have many individual neighborhoods inside their boundaries. Each of these individual neighborhoods also fall into the boundaries of the various school districts. My Colorado Springs neighborhoods page has more detailed info and I am always here to help you understand what areas might best fit your needs.
I help a lot of military members buy and sell their homes, and as a former military spouse, I truly appreciate and respect the service and sacrifice that our military members endure. To show my appreciation I offer an aggressive Military appreciate cash back rebate for all active duty and retired military members. Whether you are relocating to Colorado Springs and looking to purchase a home or in need of selling your Colorado Springs home, my cash back rebate is just a small gesture to thank you for your service. Many agents do not even offer this type of rebate and for those who do my cash back rebate program beats most of them.
The purchase of real estate provides not only a home but can also be a great investment for you and your family. Unless you know what the Colorado Springs real state market conditions are and how they may impact you, it’s difficult to make an informed decision about your investment. I work very hard to ensure my buyers and sellers fully understand all market conditions that can impact them and the decisions they make. Market conditions are local and can vary widely depending on the actual neighborhood, price point and an individual home. My market trends page will help give you a basic feel for the current and past market conditions and future projections.
Colorado Springs and the surrounding areas are a beautiful place to live and is consistently found on many of the nationwide media’s “Top” lists for best places to live. If you are relocating to the Colorado Springs area, I offer a complimentary relocation packet which includes a lot of local information that will help you with your transition to the Springs. My Colorado Springs area information page also provides information that you may find useful to include information on Colorado Springs area school’s and school districts, community information, and more. If you need any assistance in your relocation or have any questions please fell free to contact me at anytime.
Selling your home can be a stressful time, but it doesn't have to be. It’s important to select the right real estate agent to help guide you through the entire process to ensure your home sells in the shortest time for the highest price. Not all REALTORS are the same and the ramifications of not selecting the right real estate agent can cost you a lot of time, money and heartache. Ranked in the Top 1% of all Colorado Springs REALTORS for sales volume and total number of sales each year for the past five years, I have the experience and reputation to help you decide if this is the right time to sell your home and to successfully guide you throughout the entire process to get your home sold!

Historically, the choice between renting or buying a home has been a tough decision.
Looking at the percentage of income needed to rent a median-priced home today (28.8%) vs. the percentage needed to buy a median-priced home (17.1%), the choice becomes obvious.
Every market is different. Before you renew your lease again, find out if you can put your housing costs to work by buying this year!
In many markets across the country, the number of buyers searching for their dream homes greatly outnumbers the number of homes for sale. This has led to a competitive marketplace where buyers often need to stand out. One way to show you are serious about buying your dream home is to get pre-qualified or pre-approved for a mortgage before starting your search.
Even if you are in a market that is not as competitive, understanding your budget will give you the confidence of knowing if your dream home is within your reach.
Colorado Springs is the No. 2 “Best Place to Live” in America, according to the 2018 rankings released by U.S. News & World Report. The quality of life and the present job market boosted the city into the top two, with Austin, Texas taking the top spot.
The rankings considered the top 125 cities in the U.S. Colorado Springs was ranked No. 11 last year and No. 5 in 2016.
