My Background

Born and raised in Denver, I’ve always had the natural drive to do my best. Bored with the status quo, I graduated from high school early and gained a full-ride scholarship to Stephens College. I graduated with my four-year degree at the top of the Dean’s List in only three years. From there I pursued my dream of traveling the world.  From South America to China, to the base camp at Mt. Everest and many, many places in between, I worked as an independent contractor in Japan and Hong Kong to support my passion for adventure. When I returned home, I focused on helping others through volunteer work, massage and physical fitness. I love Denver, the state of Colorado, the Rocky Mountains and everything this wonderful place has to offer.  My core passion of helping others has guided me to real estate (though I still love teaching fitness classes a couple times a week  ) My current calling includes using my skills and experience in helping others to enjoy the process of buying or selling their homes.  My goal is to direct my determination and hard work to helping protect my clients from unforeseen pitfalls, help them make informed decisions, and take the worry out of the process.  If you’re interested, I can also share a story or two about my travels.  My husband loves the story about my stay with a family in a Mongolian yurt.

We will work together as a team with direct, clear communication, honesty, and integrity.

How a Real Estate Agent Can Help Buyers Choose a First Home, Mortgage, and More

By Jamie Wiebe kali9/iStock

Wondering how to choose a Realtor®? Purchasing a new home takes some serious prep work—from cleaning up your credit score to amassing a down payment. But, hey, we’re just getting started! You also need a comrade in arms: a close ally to help steer you toward homes you’ll love more than life itself, find the best possible mortgage, and all in all help you through this emotionally and financially taxing process. That’s where a good real estate agent can make a world of difference.

How to choose a Realtor®

The first thing you might notice while trying to find home-buying help is all the different titles: agent, broker, Realtor®, etc. Are they all the same thing? Not exactly.

Realtor® is either an agent or broker who is a member of the National Association of Realtors®. Realtors adhere to a detailed code of ethics to treat their clients honestly and fairly. Consider it added insurance that they’re committed to you.

real estate agent is anyone who’s earned a license to sell property, which typically entails taking 100+ hours of course work and then passing a state exam. A broker is someone who’s continued his studies and can hire agents to work under him. 

**As a knock certified Realtor, I have exclusive access to a program that empowers you to buy a new home before you even list this house for sale—providing funds for prepping your listing for sale, for your new home down payment, and for mortgage payment coverage. It is the ultimate combination of convenience, certainty, and cost-effectiveness—and I am one of the only agents in this market who can give you access to it. Interested? Great! Let’s get started.
