    After serving in the Marine Corp for one tour, I founded and managed my own real estate office for several years. Having real success and fallen in love with the business, I transitioned to executive management at Coldwell Banker and ran the premier Austin office for 25+ years. I was responsible for over 60 agents, an administration staff, training, and recruiting. During that time, I was licensed and sold homes in Texas, personally bought and sold investment property both out of state and outside the US. Additionally, along with my husband, I designed, staged, and remodeled our residences, residential rental properties, and commercial office properties. These experiences have allowed me to understand firsthand how critically important the need is for constant communication with so many moving parts, whether in the negotiating process or working through the financing and repairs of a property, particularly long distance when you have to be the eyes and ears of your clients. Having managed hundreds of agents over my career, coupled with my personal real estate investment, remodeling, and restoration experience, I have a wide range of real estate expertise to draw on and offer my clients.

    How did we get from Texas to Colorado? The planets lined up. With 4 children grown and graduated from their respective universities, 2 married, and off on their life's adventures, my husband and I turned our focus to our own next adventure. We are fitness addicts, avid long distance runners, and really enjoy the outdoors. Being in the mountains has always been a life dream (we owned a second home in the mountains of San Miguel de Allende for 12+ years) and we seized the moment when my husband had the opportunity to open a Colorado advertising and design office.

    Now we have escaped the heat and have the privilege of waking up at the foot of Pikes Peak every morning - with all the beauty, wildlife, and adventure that surrounds us here in this wonderful state. In the past few years we have taken advantage of the abundant trailheads and 14ers that beckon us whenever there is a spare moment.

    When it comes to real estate, please allow me the privilege to be your guide on your next adventure. Whether moving across town, or across the country, a first time home buyer, a retiree stepping up to a luxury property, or a relocating military family - let me help lead the way through the buying and/or selling process. I will take the time to ensure you understand every step of the transaction and make certain you get the right home and at the right value for you and your family's needs.

    A few closing thoughts, and ones that I believe in and live by. It's nice to be nice. And the right thing to do, is the right thing to do.

    Chris gave Vanessa 5 stars out of 5
    Vanessa is an excellent real estate agent! She is incredibly knowledgeable and very easy to get along with. She has a great ability to introduce new perspectives without being pushy in the least. I'm very happy with my townhome and she was a great contributor toward the feeling. This was my first home buying experience and she helped me out from the bare basics and assisted me the entire way. I highly recommend using her to help buy a home!
    Leon gave Vanessa 5 stars out of 5
    I have known and had Vanessa's assistance and support concerning my real estate for several years. Recently she aided me in selling one of my properties and her expert advise and decisions created a professional experience and process that went smoothly despite an unusual situation which Vanessa was able to weave her way through. I would highly recommend Vanessa and her expert services for your real estate endeavors and transactions.

    My wife and I are moving to Colorado Springs this summer from Spokane WA and we needed "eyes and ears" on the ground to help us through the entire process. I came across Vanessa's bio on the Coldwell Banker website and was instantly drawn to her experience in several markets as well as her military connections (THANK YOU for your service!) so we reached out and have been thrilled with how our relationship has grown. Since we didn't have much familiarity with Colorado Springs, Vanessa spent a lot of time getting to understand what we REALLY wanted, where we REALLY wanted to be, and most importantly, how to do it all within budget. She was then able to provide us a nice range of potential properties where we did find our newest 'dream home'. She leveraged her existing relationships with builders, lenders, and even geologists to help with our decision-making process. Our soon-to-be new home is in a new development and currently under construction so we can't easily monitor the progress while still living in Spokane, but Vanessa consistently goes out of her way to drop by the project and provide a great photo catalog of the progress. She serves as our liaison with the developer and runs every question or concern to ground immediately. She even came to our design studio session and provided great perspective on design ideas and how to best prioritize our design budget with both an eye for style, and an eye for value. It's hard to convey the sense of 'peace' she provides us through these stressful times of relocating to a new city and building a new home but from the very beginning she has become more of a partner and friend in this process while still providing her agent skills. We absolutely love her special care and handling of our new home purchase and we couldn't think of using anyone else in the future.
