"Cyndy and I have lived in Boulder for over 50 years combined. Cyndy moved to Boulder with her family at the young age of three and I moved here to attend CU and never left. We currently have three dogs and one wonderful daughter named Callie.

"We have found Boulder to be a wonderful place to raise a family and to grow our business of helping people buy and sell real estate. In 2003 we became co-owners of RE/MAX Alliance in Boulder Valley. RE/MAX Alliance is currently the largest locally owned real estate company in Colorado.

Please drop us a line - we would appreciate the opportunity to show you why we love this community and our little slice of heaven in Boulder Colorado."
