What does a realtor actually do? How much do your services cost?

Think of me as your project manager for the home buying process and don’t worry, my services are always free to my home buyers because the home seller offers to compensate the agent that represents the buyer. Whether you’re looking for homes for sale in Longmont or another Northern Colorado city, I can help make the process easier for you.
