You could say that real estate is in my blood. My mom likes to tell people that because she dragged me to her open houses as a young child, I became a Realtor. Maybe! What I do know is that I love it! I love it because it allows me to help people reach their goals – whether it is buying or selling, determining whether they should move or remodel. Either way, I am an integral part of that process, counseling my clients through the various decisions. I jokingly say that in some way it helps fulfill my underlying desire to be a psychologist. Being part of the emotions and decisions, simple or complicated, is something I welcome. I believe my honest, straightforward approach helps people easily wade through the nuances and nuisances of real estate. After 17 years in the industry, I can honestly say that no transaction is the same—every client is different, every home has its own unique makeup, and those are facets of this work that motivate me daily.
My real estate career began in Sun Valley, Idaho where I worked for a developer of a new private golf course community. After moving to Portland in 1996, I became the key support person for a seasoned Realtor. This proved to be an invaluable opportunity as it taught me to manage transactions and anticipate breakdowns. While in Portland, I worked for 2 established Brokerages; The Hasson Company and Realty Trust Group, Inc. In 2009, we moved our family to Louisville, CO where we enjoy a small town life, sunny days, and lots of outdoor activities. I am proud to have hung my license with Staufer Team Real Estate, a local brokerage with a strong reputation for taking good care of clients and investing in the community. Not to mention we work hard; producing 99 million in sales in 2013 with only 15 agents, all of whom have years of experience.
When I am not selling real estate, my time is spent with my husband, our 2 young children, and our golden retriever. We enjoy spending time exploring Colorado, hanging out with friends, and watching our kids in lots of sports! Juggling busy schedules is a daily challenge, yet my competitive nature and passion to help families find spaces to create their memories make it a worthwhile challenge to pursue.
I look forward to helping you discover and experience all the wonders of Boulder County, CO.
“ Kelly made my house purchase an amazing experience. She’s has great listening skills and knew exactly what I was looking for. Kelly knew instantly when looking at homes if I was interested or not and was fully aware of how I felt once I walked into a home. She has a strong knowledge of the Northern Denver Metro area and was always aware of how a location would impact my commute and closeness to family and friends. We looked at many homes and Kelly always made the experience educational and most importantly fun. Once I found a home, she was extremely organized and hit every deadline and her communication skills are the best in the business. Thank you Kelly for finding my new home! ” –Todd Majoris
“Kelly is a fabulous realtor who helped us both sell our house and purchase a new house…all in a short time. She is calm, organized and knowledgeable about all the issues that come up when buying and selling a home. There were so many details that Kelly worked out for us and negotiated with ease. Kelly talked us through everything without pressure or influence. She helped us prepare our home so that we got multiple offers within a few days over asking price. We love our new house! It was a smooth process because of Kelly! I couldn’t imagine using anyone else!!!” –Chris & Katie Lee
“Kelly was a godsend in our purchasing/selling process. Her general real estate knowledge and her familiarity with the market and neighborhood was invaluable. We were able to put complete trust in her opinions and guidance. She walked us through a stressful period of buying and selling at the same time. She listed our house at just the right price to give us an offer above asking within 48 hours of listing. Both ends of our transaction were extremely smooth and Kelly’s intuitions were spot on. We love our new house and are so thankful for Kelly!” –Tim & Kristi Gray
“Kelly is a fantastic realtor with a very professional and honest approach. She gave us excellent advice without being pushy, and always let the final decision be ours. Her years of experience showed in her ability to get our house on the market only 72 hours after our decision to sell, pricing our house right, and in helping us to navigate all the details of the multiple offers we received. She was extremely helpful during the entire process and helped to tie up loose ends after we’d left the state. We are very grateful for her expertise and hard work and we highly recommend her.” –Liz & Everett Smith
“Kelly is amazing! We started talking about our move 3/4 of a year ago. She spent an hour with me long distance talking about the different schools in Louisville to give me an idea of where we’d like to target our home search. I came to visit early in our search and based on my criteria she took me around to many homes just to give me an idea of what might be available. She and I were in constant contact throughout the next many months. She went out of her way to visit homes for us while we were in Portland. We finally found a home and she was awesome negotiating with the sellers for us and very fair all the way around. We had to also find a rental as we will be remodeling the purchased home and she went out of her way to help us secure the rental. Without her help we would not have even captured the rental this market is so tight. Then she even went back to the rental to make sure it was clean before we moved in! Kelly is professional, kind, honest and sweet. She is like a working with a good friend. We highly recommend Kelly!” –Anonymous
