As your Buyer’s Agent, I will help you navigate through the process of buying property while acting as an advocate for you, and I will be looking-out for your best interests at all times.

In Colorado, the listing agent can have an agreement with the seller as a “Seller’s Agent” (with a contractual obligation to be an advocate for the seller), or as a “Transaction Broker”(with an obligation to be “neutral” between the two parties). In either case, the buyer is typically under-represented.

For those reasons, if you’re a buyer, it will typically be to your advantage to be represented by a Buyer’s Agent, and to have a Buyer’s Agency relationship with your broker. For the Department of Regulatory Agencies’ definition and clarification of “Buyer’s Agent”, please follow the link.



Additional Photos: “Lake House”, non historic structure (Can be demo’d, replaced, or remodeled).  This home sites apart from the rest of the Gold Lake structures, and has been used as a caretake’s unit.  At one point, in a previous use, the Lake House was used for spa and massage.  This building and the small cabin on the right side are potential caretaker/employee housing units.
