first-time buyers and sellers: you've come to the right place

Most agents do not teach their clients how to make rational real estate decisions. Prior to real estate, I spent nearly two decades in river conservation, helping some of our nation's leading CEOs meaningfully invest in rivers and fish. I was uncommonly successful because I understood that everyone needs a framework to evaluate opportunities outside of their expertise... just like with real estate. 

There is good reason I was able to earn the trust of some of the most successful individuals in the nation: I care deeply that you understand HOW to make sound decisions. Whether you are a first-time buyer, or a seasoned homeowner who appreciates honest advocacy, I welcome the opportunity to earn your trust, too.

I'm also a personal finance geek, conservationist, and angler

“Libby is one of the most ethical and intelligent real estate agents in the industry. Many agents would prefer their inspector gloss over problems so that their client will finalize the home sale. Not Libby, she insists on a thorough inspection so she can walk her clients through every issue with the house, in order to help them understand the potential liabilities so they can make the best decision for their situation.... I cannot recommend Libby enough to assist with your real estate needs."

Considering a Purchase?

your first home can position you for financial security

In spite of some missed opportunities, my family made several wise decisions with our first home. We started with rational budgeting, focusing on long-term goals. When we sold it, we gained what I like to call "financial freeboard" - enough financial cushion to bring flexibility to our lives and weather the storms caused by unexpected events. 

I help my clients frame their thinking around real estate decisions and aim for their own goals, including "financial freeboard". 

"We lived in England before moving to Colorado and I came out for a few days in the spring to meet my future employer and look at homes. From the moment I met Libby I knew I could unquestionably trust her, which was especially important since we knew we would ultimately purchase a home site unseen!"

Liz, Air Force Veteran

"I closed on a home recently and I'm so pleased Libby helped me get here. Libby is a knowledgeable, systematic, and thoughtful guide for any home buyer/seller.... On the rare occasions I considered making an offer on a house that was outside what I had been seeking, Libby gently reined me back in with assurances--and data--that we would find the right house at the right price if we were patient and diligent."

"Libby has been so wonderful to me as a first time home buyer. She has helped me to understand each part of the process and also listens to what I am looking for. Would highly recommend to anyone!"

Brad K.

"Libby was a delight to meet and showed a strong interest in the type of real estate I was looking for. She was very creative and worked hard to make a unique offer that could satisfy both the seller and myself. She was very experienced and knowledgable about the real estate market in Longmont and the ongoing real estate changes going on. I would highly recommend working with Libby on your next real estate project."

Viki M.

"Libby has been extremely helpful, thoughtful, and knowledgeable with the whole process of home buying. From providing details for months prior to the timeframe I wanted to purchase while I was in TN to knowing all the minute details when walking through potential homes. Nothing goes unnoticed with her and she is delightful to work with on top of her skill set. I highly recommend anyone looking to purchase or sell a home to contact Libby to make this process easier."

Hannah B.

"Libby has gone above and beyond during the house hunting process! She is incredibly thorough, kind, and knowledgeable about buying a home in CO. She pointed things out in homes that my spouse and I would have never considered, and I am so grateful she helped us find our dream home! She has kept us up to date on homes for the past year since we live out of state, and she was so patient while we looked for the perfect house. I cannot recommend Libby enough! If you are looking to buy or sell a home, don’t pass up Libby!"
