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.

Thus far this year home values continue to rise across the Boulder Valley as demand exceeds supply. New construction throughout the eastern portion of Boulder County has augmented a portion of the increased buyer demand, but resale listing inventory has plateaued, with monthly home sales somewhat mirroring monthly listings entering the market.
