"We never thought that as first-time home-buyers, we'd be entertaining the idea of buying our ultimate DREAM HOUSE... and we did! Alissa was incredible at guiding us through the terrifying process, making it so approachable, setting our expectations about the process, keeping the ball rolling, making sure we didn't miss a step, making us feel totally informed, and making us feel like everything was under control from square one. We had heard so many horror stories about the home buying process in general, and our experience was 100% enjoyable, no doubt due to Alissa's incredible expertise and calm guidance. THANK YOU so much! We're over the moon, and so grateful it was such a pleasant experience. We would highly recommend Alissa to anyone looking to buy their next home."

"Alissa has represented us in several transactions, all of them complicated (moves into and out of state), and done so with such grace and scrupulous attention to every detail that she has become both a professional inspiration and a family friend. Her work is impeccable."

"Alissa was such a gift as a broker. I did not even have a broker in the highly competitive market of Boulder until the day of the opening of a dream home. She dropped everything and showed up and advised me on how best to make an offer. Her diligent and detailed oriented work landed me in a lovely home. She arranged everything from facilitating loans (and even refinancing after the closing) to helping the current owner with cleaning. I could not have asked for anyone better to help me get into a new home! Thank you Alissa!"
- Catherine Yrisarri

"My husband and I moved to Boulder almost three years ago from Sydney, Australia. At the time we had very little idea about the housing market in both the rental and sales areas. We rented as it gave us an opportunity to truly get to know neighborhoods and learn about Boulder’s unique housing market - which isn’t like any other in the US, although we are savvy and seasoned Buyers. We found this a challenging market to buy in from pricing, location, to matching a style that suited our personality. We started to lose hope about procuring a home in Boulder at all. That was until we began talking to Alissa Peterson. Alissa felt our frustration and made a huge effort to educate us on what was trending in Boulder. She took time to educate us on the local market, how to write meaningful offers to get the attention of sellers, and helped us clearly define what we wanted in our vision of living Boulder as we dreamed. Working with Alissa was like working with a bespoke craftsperson who understands your needs and perfectly tailors your experience eventuating with the house of your dreams. Our new house feels like it was custom made for us in every way thanks to Alissa’s insight and genuine consideration of our needs. Every step of the process was a pleasure and we never felt pressured or stressed. After we moved in, Alissa continued to lend her support towards any needs we had with our new home be it a new electrician, glass tinting or sprinkler system. I would recommend Alissa to anyone local or new to Boulder, especially those who might need to be educated on it’s housing market. Having said that, if you’re feeling like there’s just nothing out there for you, talk to Alissa, she’ll find you the home of your dreams."

"Alissa is professional, communicative and stands out in the real estate profession! She helped us secure a buy from 7 states away without worry! Our best experience ever XOXOXO!"
Alison Hulett

"Alissa made me feel uniquely important to her from the very beginning. We easily got along while we'd meet at various properties, each time she'd listen intently to my feelings about it, and was very intuitive about my needs and desires for a home and lifestyle. She was very patient with my timeline and helped me to envision the parameters for a property that best suited me. When we finally walked in to the One, as soon as I said "Let's do it. Let's go for it," she got on her horse and went to battle for me immediately. She made sure my offer was heard and that negotiations were on the table. Any other realtor with less heart in the game may easily have let this one slide, as the offers were very close and mine was even slightly less than another, but the seller FELT right about me- thanks to Alissa. What I ended up with is an absolutely perfect fit for my lifestyle. I love coming home to this place, and I believe that it will be a wise investment into the future. I could not be more grateful for her careful guidance and genuine warmth throughout the process.""
