First-time Buyers and sellers:
you've come to the right place!

Learn more about me

After 8 years of saving, we put $50,000 down on our first home when we were eligible for a $0 down fixed-rate mortgage. It was most of our life savings and more than our annual income. There is so much to learn with your first home purchase. We didn't know there were loans designed for our circumstances (neither did our agent)! 

Likewise, when we sold that home, we took on unnecessary stress and the expense of multiple moves because we didn't realize we could have purchased our next house before selling the first.

We still got lucky: in spite of these errors, our many wise decisions about that home established a financial foundation that serves us to this day. I became a real estate agent so my clients wouldn't have to rely on luck. My approach relies on rational budgeting, honest advocacy, and market expertise to help you meet your financial goals.

Whether you are a first-time buyer or long-term investor, I welcome the opportunity to work with you. 

Hi, I’m Libby!

I am a 4th-generation Coloradan, specializing in meeting the needs of first-time buyers and sellers on Colorado's northern Front Range.

“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."

your first home can position you for financial security

In spite of some missed opportunities, we made several wise decisions with our first home. 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 want you to benefit from the smart budgeting that we did with our first home, decisions that helped establish a strong financial foundation.

"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!"
