Hello, my name is Barb Passalacqua, and I am thrilled to join the team at BoulderHomeSource. Growing up in family of developers my infatuation with real estate began at an early age. My husband and I have bought and sold many properties in Boulder County over the last 20 years, so becoming a Realtor just made sense.

For me, helping people is a pleasure and I am good at advocating for my clients whether they are buying or selling. One client in particular was very rewarding. They have a daughter with severe allergies related to household toxins. They needed help fast. I found them a nice home that had no allergens but did have all the features they wanted in a second home. It was wonderful to see everyone happy and healthy in their new Boulder home.

To do that, they'll need confidence, adaptability, appreciation and ingenuity. We encourage creative thinking, but it is time to push past that into actual creating.

Eating fresh, organic, locally produced food is an ideal most of us would love to achieve daily. It can be done. There are ways to cut costs without cutting quality.

First, this is the perfect time of year to harvest food yourself. Places like Miller Farms offer tractor rides into fields where you can pick your own organic bounty right out of the ground.
