Happy Holidays!

Wow, where did 2018 go? It sure seems this past year has gone by faster than any other! It's been rewarding though as I've stayed busy helping my clients and friends with the buying and selling of their homes.

I've tried to incorporate some fun during the year as well with a couple of very memorable trips. I spent two weeks in Amsterdam visiting one of my best friends, visited family in Florida this summer and just returned from a fabulous birthday celebration in Napa Valley! 

As for real estate, our area continues to be one of the hottest markets in the nation with no slowing down in sight. With that, my husband and I decided to invest in a condo in Denver! We love everything Denver has to offer and we've really been enjoying

Happy Holidays!

I am chock full of gratitude for so many reasons! I am so grateful for my connections with you, my friend and family, for living a life where I follow my heart and my intuition, full of compassion, ever optimistic, and for finding a wonderful balance between working hard and enjoying my time in nature on the trails all over Boulder and beyond, in Core Power yoga and spending quality time doing fun things with the people I love. I am truly grateful for being able to live a full life, and for sharing experiences and deep connections with my children, McKenna 22, Greyson 19 and Kreitler 15. I love them each so much, enjoy helping them navigate the world, and appreciate that they still love my being such an integral part of their lives.

Happy Holidays!

Well another year flew by and it is hard to believe we are talking about the holidays now. I sure do love the snowy season and having time to be with family and friends in a season of giving, expressing gratefulness and time for quiet reflection.

Speaking of grateful this has been an amazing year for work and family life. I want to express my thanks to all of you that have been in my world because it is you that puts a smile on my face and why I am jazzed to get up and start each day. And you know ho you are because you are taking the time to read this!

2018 brought another special little gal into our lives. My newest granddaughter, who is a blessing like no other I have ever met. She is a keeper. Work life was filled with

Happy Holidays! 

This letter comes too fast each year. I am struggling to remember what exactly happened this year as it is a blur. John and I were very fortunate to have traveled to different locations. In February we took a trip to Kauai and invited our son, Tommy, and his girlfriend, Cara. The second day I split my thumb open and had to get stitches; you could say it dampened my experience for the week. I was ale to enjoy watching the three of them do their outdoor activities. In May, John earned a trip to Bermuda and we both loved it. What I loved most about being a visitor is that you are not able to rent a car, only scooter rentals. For those of you who know me, you know that I ride a scooter around Boulder during the warmer months. Tommy

Happy Holidays! 

Change and adventure filled the Smith's in 2018! Relocating from Boulder to a recently renovated "modern farmhouse" on 5 acres in east Boulder County was a big change and new adventure for us. And, it renewed our empathy for the endeavor of listing, selling and moving! We appreciate the serenity, beauty, and nature (owls and hawks, and coyotes, oh my!) that surrounds us daily. Our trips this year included several weekends in Steamboat, rafting the Colorado and Arkansas rivers, Ruggerfest in Aspen, and fun times in the eastern US with trips to Gettysburg, Philadelphia, and New York City with Callie.

Whether assisting clients with their real estate needs, helping agents in the office, or coaching high school boys rugby, it's just

Happy Holidays! 

I am very grateful to my friends, family and clients who supported and encouraged me during a very challenging and emotional 2018. This year brought many changes - some expected and some unexpected - to my life. I embarked on a brand new career, sent my youngest off to college, and helped my sister pass away with love and dignity. 

My decision to begin a real estate career took courage but I am happy to say it has been very fulfilling. I love meeting people from various backgrounds, helping people find a house that best feels like "home," preparing and marketing a home for sale, and all the ongoing education to keep abreast of real estate industry all satisfy my need to connect with people and continue to learn new things. I

Happy Holidays!

This has been a year of new challenges and great opportunity for me! I am especially grateful for the chance to work with the Boulder Home Source team at RE/MAX Alliance. The support and partnership I have experienced has exceeded all of my expectations.

While I still maintain my Steamboat connections, continuing my real estate career in Boulder, where I have lived for over 35 years, is as good as it can get for me! I have reconnected with old friends and neighbors and continued an annual tradition of celebrating Memorial Day at the Boulder community and Bosley family event, The Bolder Boulder.

I am lucky to have enjoyed so many great times and adventures with my very good-natured 10 year old son, Donovan. His skills continue

All About Selling a Vacation HomeSelling a vacation home is different from selling a primary residence. Many homeowners who are selling their first vacation property are unaware of what to expect. Knowing the differences can help vacation homeowners with the process.

  • Provide outdoor seating to help home buyers envision themselves relaxing outside.
  • Clear away clutter inside to

Happy Holidays!

2018 was filled with wonderful adventures and rewarding achievements, which supported and provided me the energy to work with so many amazing people.

We traveled to Costa Rica, for the first time, to celebrate my sister's 30th wedding anniversary, with her family. It was a beautiful vacation that resulted in many lifetime memories (snorkeling, zip lining, deep sea fishing, etc.). I look forward to returning soon. 

I also traveled to California to participate in my buddy Noels' wedding in Muir Woods. Noel is the same friend who introduced and convinced me to do an Ironman. Noel and I met another friend Jeff, in Arizona last November, where we completed the 2017 Arizona Ironman. Paxton and Sydnee came with me and cheered me
