Amy LaBorde is a licensed, professional real estate agent in Boulder & Denver, Colorado. Amy has lived in Boulder since 1999. After starting out with Keller Williams Realty’s Downtown Denver office in 2005, she and business partner, Brad Evans, quickly excelled with their Top Producing Team, DenverCORE, and consistently received honors in their office including #1 Sales Volume, #1 Listing Volume, #1 Closed Volume.
Amy’s skills were refined through the ups and downs of a challenging real estate market in the late 2000′s. She gained experience in all arenas of the real estate market beyond just working with residential Buyers & Sellers, but also working with developers listing new construction projects, and even commercial sales and leasing. Amy & Brad then went on in 2008 to start their own independent realty company in both Denver and Boulder, DenverCORE & BoulderCORE (COlorado Real Estate).
What Amy can offer you:
1. Expert Knowledge of the Boulder & Denver Markets:
After living and working in Boulder for over 13 years, as well as owning and selling property in both Boulder & Denver since 2004, Amy has unparalleled expertise in these local markets. Whether you are a first time homebuyer, are relocating or upgrading to a larger home, or are adding to your investment portfolio, Amy will find the perfect place for you, sometimes even going above and beyond what is on the MLS (Multiple Listing Service) to find properties before they hit the market, and to get ahead of the competition.
2. Skilled, Trained Negotiator:
As a Certified Negotiation Expert, she is a confident negotiator and successful advocate for her clients, which adds value beyond just the price of her commission. With experience in hundreds of transactions over the years, all of them unique, she has learned many creative solutions to both the uncommon and more typical problems that come up during any given home purchase. Her diligence, professionalism and outside-the-box ideas will be your closest ally from contract to closing.
3. Marketing Master:
Even before she was a Realtor, Amy worked for several non-profit organizations in Marketing, Fundraising and PR. She is a savvy internet and social media Marketing Master who understands what it takes to sell a home in today’s market. Beyond print and internet marketing, her agent network of over 6,000 associates and colleagues is comprised of Boulder, Denver & Mountain agents. This exposure, combined with a proficient understanding of market value, is why Amy’s listings sell for the highest amount of money in the shortest amount of time, often with multiple, competing offers and sometimes for over the asking price.
4. Resources & Connections:
As a property owner and landlord, as well as a Professional Property Manager, Amy has a vast database ranging from Painters to Plumbers, Inspectors, Lenders and more, and can refer you to just about anyone you need while you are going through a home purchase or relocation: need to find a good hairdresser, dry cleaner or bank in your new neighborhood? Buying a mountain property and need the names for a Well and Septic Inspector? You name it, she has the contacts.
5. Leasing & Property Management:
Amy’s Property Management business adds a unique skill-set to her resume. She has helped many clients who are moving out of state or upgrading to a larger home by offering them the option to hold on to their property asset and make it a cash-flowing income stream as a rental. She is often an invaluable consultant to investors who have added to their property portfolio. With expert knowledge of the local sales & rental markets in both Boulder and Denver, she can ensure that the numbers are right to get a great deal on the sale and have positive cash flow. She also offers a full range of property management and leasing services after closing, and will get you the highest rental rates with the lowest vacancies. Proudly maintaining 0% Vacancy Rates year after year highlights her skills as a Leasing Agent, both residential and commercial, and her commitment to protecting your investment as if it were her own, leaving you more time and money to reinvest.
6. Furnished, Short Term Rentals:
Offering a wide variety of rentals from single family homes to downtown lofts and condos, her unique niche is in the Furnished Corporate Rental market. These rentals are offered with short term, flexible lease options and are the perfect solution if you are relocating to Denver or Boulder and are in need of a temporary space while you look for a home to buy; for instance, if you have sold your home faster than anticipated and need a place in the interim while we continue your search for a new home.
Amy’s unique talent lies in providing the same professional standard for anyone looking to buy, sell, lease and invest in Real Estate in Colorado.
“Amy is a consummate professional. From our first meeting, while I was looking for investment property in Boulder, and our subsequent meetings to discuss my needs and goals, she has always been available when I needed her. I have purchased 2 investment rental properties using her services, and have let her company manage them after the closing. I have never been dissatisfied with her timeliness or services. I am seeking my third and fourth investments, and cannot imagine using anyone but her to find the appropriate opportunities for me. You could not use a better agent for both finding a profitable investment, and a more-than-qualified property manager. Her work ethic is beyond reproach, and you would be foolish to use anyone else.” – Jim Tyrrell, Boulder, CO
