I have an educational, professional, cultural, and experiential background that sets me apart from most other Real Estate professionals. I am known for out-of-the-box thinking, which I apply toward marketing unique properties. Extensive experience with sellers and buyers of all types allows me to also relate and think from a buyer’s perspective, which is very valuable when marketing and presenting your home. Understanding what a buyer will be looking for, and what they will be thinking about, is of the utmost importance.
I have been passionate about Boulder and Colorado since coming to the University of Colorado to study Mechanical Engineering and Business. I know the Boulder area inside and out.
My focus, throughout the entire real estate transaction, is toward my clients. Staying focused on my fiduciary responsibility to my clients is top of mind, while helping them understand each step of the transaction, and keeping them informed. Over the years, and through a large variety of different transactions, I have developed a honed negotiation style that makes me an asset in every transaction I am involved in.
I have true passion for real estate transactions and helping my clients. From condos and townhomes, to mountain properties, ranch properties, luxury homes, and developable land, I have the professional background and knowledge to represent you, manage a smooth transaction, and maximize your returns. It’s also important to highlight that LIV Sotheby’s International Realty is the best real estate brokerage in the state, and our professional staff is here to support the process of selling your home.
Prior to becoming a real estate professional and a top-producing broker in Boulder, I served as president and general manager of ReNové Construction, Inc., a commercial and luxury custom home construction company in Boulder. I have designed, engineered, and built some of the most recognized homes in Boulder. This background gives me a unique perspective, and it allows me to help you prepare your property before listing and marketing it to prospective buyers. I have also performed significant restoration and rejuvenation projects in the Mapleton Historic District and on Landmarked homes in Boulder. Having experience and an understanding of the construction and development rules and regulations in Boulder is very valuable when addressing questions from buyers and their brokers. I have established relationships with other real estate agents, contractors, specialty sub-contractors, mortgage bankers, appraisers, title companies, insurance companies, and inspectors so that each transaction is completed professionally and efficiently
I have always been an explorer and adventurer at heart. Throughout my life I have been fortunate to have traveled extensively, but never enough, and I’m always looking forward to exploring new places. I have lived in Canada, Nederland, Costa Rica, Mexico, Spain, and the US. I consider myself to be multicultural, and am fluent in Dutch, Spanish and English. I love the outdoors and outdoor sports such as hiking, mountaineering, skiing, mountain biking and kayaking. I share my passions for the outdoors, travel, and preparing good meals with my wife, Roseann, my son, Anders, my daughter, Kasia, and her husband, Cody.
