After graduating college, Courtney worked for a new home builder here in Colorado Springs for a couple of years before becoming a licensed real estate professional in the summer of 1997. With close to 20 years in real estate, helping buyers and sellers exceed their real estate goals, remains her true passion. From traditional residential sales, to investment, second home, resort, and fix and flip properties, Courtney's experience, skill, dedication, go get 'em attitude, and never say never spirit, are what help set her apart in this industry.


The military also hold a soft spot in Courtney's heart. With so many military installations in Colorado Springs, she became a member of the Volunteer Realtor Program at Fort Carson years ago so that she could learn the unique nuances of military transfers both in and out of state, country, and world. Since that time, she has helped 100s of military families make these sometimes difficult move that much easier!


In her spare time, her son takes priority. From walking the golf course with him during his school golf tournaments, from score keeping his traveling team's basketball games most weekend evenings, from getting him out on the trails with her so that he can grow up appreciating and respecting the beauty and perfection that is this great state of Colorado, her son is typically right by her side.
