Monique’s mission is to help clients build a better future for themselves, their families and the planet. After all, real estate is about so much more than buildings and land. It can represent a new lifestyle and a great long-term investment
Highly personalized service distinguishes her as an agent and has earned her a spot on 5280 Magazine’s list of Five Star Real Estate Agents for five years. She has helped people buy and sell real estate since 2003, in both Boulder, Colorado and Haleiwa, Hawaii, where she was raised. Boulder has been her home for 17 wonderful years.
What does she bring to the table? A strong desire – and the expertise necessary – to do the best job possible for each individual client. She is an excellent problem solver, but she also tries to anticipate and resolve issues before they even become problems. her goal is to make each transaction as smooth and stress-free as possible
When clients are interested in investment properties, her experience as a former property manager and current owner of five multi-use buildings comes in handy. She can advise on 1031 tax-deferred exchanges, commercial and residential tenants, pro forma versus actual cap rates, major capital improvements, updating historic buildings, and more. Even homebuyers can benefit from looking at their purchase as an investment, in addition to a great place to live.
Monique’s previous career as a journalist contributes to her marketing expertise. With a BA degree in literature from UCLA, she served as a senior editor of Rocky Mountain Sports Magazine in the early '90s.
In her spare time, she is often spending time with her family in Colorado’s incredible backcountry, hiking, backpacking, biking, snowboarding, and snowshoeing. She is a strong supporter of the local cycling community, volunteers as a high school mountain bike coach, and knows the area’s trails – paved and dirt – like the back of her hand. Her clients may choose between touring homes by bicycle or car, and receive a free guided tour of the local hiking trails or mountain bike rides.
