Manzanita grew up in Boulder, Colorado; studying at several local elementary schools, attending Casey Jr. High and Boulder High, graduating from the University of Colorado, Boulder, with a Bachelor of Science from the School of Journalism and Mass Communication, and later earning a Master of Arts from University of Colorado, Denver. A life-long dream called her to New York City, and she moved to the Big Apple, dabbling in the fast-paced world of Fashion, Advertising, Marketing and Creative Services. True to Niwot’s Curse however, Manzanita soon realized her heart lay in the Rocky Mountains and she returned to her childhood haunts of Colorado. Manzanita now splits her time between Indian Peaks and the flat lands of St. Vrain Valley with her husband Larkin, son Jasper, and his “brudder” Zorro – the family dog.
Familiar with many facets of Real Estate; Manzanita has always been interested in the ups and downs of the market, architectural trends, and interior design, keeping a watchful eye on Boulder and the surrounding areas for decades. In 2011, she and her husband launched a family owned Design Build and Contracting Firm serving Boulder County. Their company was soon engaged to act as General Contractors of a Historic Guest Ranch high in the Mountains of Boulder County.
Manzanita loves to help people! She loves to make people smile, happy and comfortable in their surroundings. Ever the inquisitive individual, she immerses herself in whatever is around and inadvertently finds herself offering advice and directions, tips on restaurants and shops, information about schools and neighborhoods, bringing attention to home sales in the area. Naturally, Manzanita became a licensed Real Estate Agent.
Genuine, approachable, personable, and friendly, Manzanita is an experienced, motivated and creative self-starter with a diverse background and a strong work ethic. She is a problem-solving people person with excellent relationship building, sales, marketing and organizational skills. Manzanita will help you with all your Real Estate needs and is happy to show you what Colorful Colorado has to offer.
Manzanita recently joined the DRF Team – Colorado Landmark Realtors, Niwot.
