Why I Do This
I love helping people follow their dreams and assist with either buying a home or vacant land in the beautiful mountains of Northern Colorado located in Glacier View Meadows, Red Feather Lakes, and Crystal Lakes.

It also may be time to move away from the mountains due to lifestyle changes or another chapter in your lives. Whatever the reason, I love to help people make that happen too!
How I got here…several years ago, my husband and I bought a piece of vacant land in Glacier View where we could put our camper. Our hope was we’d be able to spend the weekends enjoying the serenity of the mountains. From the very first weekend, that hope became a dream, and then the dream turned into realty.
We fell in love with the area, so we sold the camper and bought a home in Glacier View Meadows. We’ve been here since 2008 and have loved every minute of it.
Now, I can offer buyers and sellers first-hand knowledge of the area and awareness of all facets of mountain living, from what to do about a bear on your porch, to how to handle an emergency.
If you’re planning to buy or sell a home in the near future, or if you need real estate information, please get in touch with me. If I don’t have an immediate answer for you, I will certainly find one.
My sole objective is to unite buyers and sellers with their needs, and my goal is always 100 percent satisfaction. I’m more than your realtor; I’m your neighbor, so I offer full access to all the tools and connections that come with that relationship.
Follow your dreams. Just make sure you have fun too.

What You Need to Know About Living In the Mountains
There’s a guide for how property can be used up here. For instance, in Larimer County, you can only have a camper on your land without a permanent residence for 6 months at a time. If you decide you’re going to build a home on that property, you can leave your camper on the land for 1 year while you’re building. After the year, if you’re still not done building your home, but you have been actively working on it, you can apply for an extension.
The purpose of the Larimer County’s Land Use Code is to protect the landowner rights and zoning regulations that have been in place since 1963. Larimer County has a plethora of information and is a good place to start when thinking about buying property and building in Larimer County.
Do you remember the last time you went camping in the mountains? How about the first time you were in the mountains and looked up at the clear night sky? It’s hypnotic. The vastness and brilliance of the stars dancing with the moon on the inky black canvas can take your breath away. Perhaps the most beautiful thing in Larimer County is our celestial sky!
As you head into the foothills, you’ll notice the absence of street lights. This is to allow a sparkling view of the stars. Most people come to our hills in Larimer County to camp, and a favorite pastime for our visitors is to sit by the campfire, share stories, goodies, and admire the night sky. Those of us who live here have made the bold decision to move away from the city. Most of us love to sit out on our decks and gaze at the sky to wind down from the day.
A few ways to reduce light pollution so we can continue to enjoy the glimmering sky is to limit outdoor lighting. Eliminate the use of Dusk-to-Dawn lights. The low-wattage landscape lights aren’t much of an issue; however, the large wattage vapor lights or flood lights are the ones that tend to cause the biggest issue.
If you don’t want to head for the hills, there are a few places around Larimer County you can stargaze:
- The Northern Colorado Astronomical Society holds stargazing events. Visit nocoastro.org for more information.
- The Stargazer Observatory at Observatory Village in southeast Fort Collins holds open houses during the third Saturday of the month, weather permitting. Visit stargazerobservatory.com for more information.
- The Sunlight Peak Observatory at Front Range Community College’s Fort Collins campus is generally open to the public four nights a week. Visit facebook.com/sunlightpeak for more information.
Fires and Emergencies
Wildfires and Emergencies are a major concern in the mountains. As per the Larimer County website, Larimer County was ranked as the most hazardous county in Colorado for wildfire hazards. As we develop more of our forested lands for recreational use, the potential for fires and emergencies rises.
Living in the mountains entails planning. Planning for fires and emergency care is extremely beneficial for you and your family. Becoming familiar with your local fire department and going to the firewise section on the LarimerCounty.org website is the best way to familiarize yourself with fire and emergency safety planning.
Always be aware of the current fire restrictions. You can find them in the Emergency Information section of the Larimer County website or the area’s community websites.
In a medical emergency, timing is everything. Living in the mountains can put you anywhere from 30 minutes to 1.5 hours from the closest hospital. AirMedCare network is available in Northern Colorado, and it’s very affordable. The AirMedCare Network provides air ambulance service that can help reduce the time it takes to get to the appropriate trauma center.
