MaryBeth and her assistant went above and beyond to help me buy a house and get my house sold! They are very savvy realtors, very knowledgeable about Boulder real estate, and do whatever is necessary to the deal done. They are very responsive and pay attention to every detail. I can't emphasize how incredible and helpful they were, and will recommend them to anyone looking for a realtor.

My wife and I were first time home buyers and were so glad to have worked with Marybeth. Purchasing a home for the first time is daunting, especially so in the highly competitive Boulder housing market. Marybeth helped us through each step of the process and spent as much time as needed to answer questions and show us properties in many different areas just so we could get a feel for the neighborhoods and pricing. Because she is so knowledgeable about the Boulder market and has so much experience, she was able to share many insights on the value of the price of the property and wasn't afraid to let us know if she felt something wasn't a good investment. In addition, her savviness and experience, we were able to get the perfect place without getting into a bidding war and likely saved us 10s of thousands on our home. In addition, Marybeth was very pleasant to work with, met our exact needs even though we were on the lower end of pricing in Boulder, extremely responsive and timely, patient and worked tirelessly to help with our decision making and get the home we wanted. We can't recommend her enough! Less ... More

Second time in two years that we've worked with Marybeth to buy a home. She knows the Boulder market so well, is highly responsive in communications, and is great during negotiations.

Out-of-town buyers who found Marybeth's contact information on Zillow. Wanted to relocate back to Boulder for retirement, as we had gone to school there many years ago. Walkability to downtown, and proximity to groceries and services was tops on our wish list, so we were interested in homes in Newlands or Mapleton Hills. Marybeth showed us a variety of homes in those areas and others, both in and slightly above our desired price range, so that we got a feel for trade offs and possibilities. After leaving Boulder to return home, we stewed about things and ended up making an offer on a circa 2500 square foot home in Mapleton Hills, that fit our parameters. The sale closed last week and we are very happy to say that all aspects of touring listings, making the offer, inspections, inspection resolution, walk-through and closing went very smoothly and were handled with the utmost professionalism, courtesy and warmth by Marybeth Emerson, her assistant Jesse Hinton, and Angie Mansfield at Land Title. We highly recommend all of their services. Less ... More

Marybeth is the best realtor I have ever worked with..by far. She is supremely knowledgeable about Boulder and the surrounding areas and uses her network of contacts to find great properties sooner than you might otherwise. Marybeth worked with us as a partner....consulting with us and helping us find the exact home we were looking for. We would rate her 10 stars if it was possible!

Marybeth was FANTASTIC to work with. My husband and I decided while on vacation to buy a home in Boulder. Marybeth not only helped us find our dream home in Boulder, she put us in contact with an agent in our home state who had our home under contract before it even hit the MLS. STILL, while we were on vacation. Marybeth negotiated hard for us and ended up getting our new home at a great price. She was extremely knowledgeable and an absolute pleasure to work with. We would absolutely recommend Marybeth Emerson! Less ... More

We were lucky enough to meet Marybeth through friends who had purchased a home with her the previous year, and as soon as we met, I knew she was the one! We had worked with quite a few realtors in the past 10 years, both as buyers and sellers, but Marybeth is truly unlike any other. She is incredibly knowledgable and honest and fun to be with... and goes way above and beyond anyone's expectations. She stayed with us through a very long search for a home, when other realtors would have grown tired, and she remained positive and encouraging through many ups and downs and changes of direction on our part. She has seemingly endless energy and is truly passionate about her job. Ultimately she helped us get a house in a multi-offer situation, in one of the toughest buyer's markets in recent years. She definitely thinks outside of the box to accomplish the seemingly impossible and is constantly adjusting to the changing market to negotiate the best deals for her clients. We are clients for life! Less ... More

Marybeth was a joy to work with in buying our first home. In a time when the market was busier than it's been in several years, she knew exactly what it would take to get my wife and I in the home we live in today. If you're like us, and have no idea what you're doing when it comes to purchasing your first home I highly recommend giving Marybeth a call!

Marybeth did a fantastic job in helping me find and purchase a house in Boulder! I am extremely happy with the service she provided and would not hesitate to recommend her to anyone who needs help buying or selling property in the Denver area. She understood that before I could make a decision I would need to look at a lot of houses, and we looked at a ton of places before I was ready to make an offer. She knows real estate inside out, and was very helpful in the getting me up to speed so I could make an informed choice. She's a great negotiator, and saved me money that I'm sure other agents would have left on the table. And she's got a great positive attitude that makes it fun to work with her! She'll be my agent for all my future transactions in the Denver area. Less ... More

Helped me buy and sell homes
Marybeth helped my husband and I both sell our condo without ever listing it and purchase a new home. It was truly a wonderful experience. She is knowledgable and wants to get you in a home you will love. Most importantly she is fun to enter the venture with! My husband and I lived in a condo association. We had discussed the idea of selling our home but did not take any steps to list our property. We received an ambitious letter from Marybeth on our doorstep one evening (along with all of our neighbors) letting us know she had a buyer who was interested in living in our community. After calling Marybeth to inquire about the buyer and situation we quickly had an appointment for her to view our condo to determine if it was a good fit for her buyer. Marybeth walked through our home and objectively analyzed the quality and potential for her buyer. Her vision for property potential was immediately apparent. Next, we discussed what our listing price would be and she scheduled her buyer to view the condo immediately. Within less than two hours of our first appointment with Marybeth we had a soft offer to sell our condo for a price that we were very satisfied with. Marybeth worked over a holiday weekend to ensure both parties were satisfied and under a contract they felt comfortable entering. The process of selling our condo could not have been easier. She was reasonable and fair as representing both the buyer and the seller. We do not wish we did anything different throughout the process due to Marybeth's keen expertise and responsiveness. Additionally, with the quick sale of our home we did not know where we would end up in a month's time. She quickly put together a list of homes to look at and set up appointments for us to begin our search for a home. She understood exactly what our needs and priorities. Marybeth gave honest advice by discussing how to improve homes and if a home was not a good value. We did get lucky enough to find a home we loved. She gave us advice for the future regarding upgrades that we should do based on whether we stay, rent, or sell in the shorter term, she helped us negotiate a great price, and made sure our interests were looked after. Marybeth is the first person we will call for all future real estate questions and transactions. I would not hesitate to recommend her for any real estate business, it was a pleasure. Less ... More

So knowledgeable about every square meter of Boulder, Marybeth seems to know the positive and negative financials about every home in Boulder. During the buying negotiation process, Marybeth was especially aggressive, helping us save about $42,000 on both the purchase price and the after-inspection price haggling. What a pleasure it was working with her. Good communicator. And she's really fun, too!

With Marybeth's help, we were able to find and close on an investment condo in record time this summer. She was positive, knowledgeable, and personable...so easy to work with! Marybeth gave us great advice, did an impressive job negotiating with the sellers throughout the entire process, took care of all forms and paperwork quickly (mostly online), and even followed through on scheduling repairs needed after the property inspection. We found a great place and never expected the process to go so smoothly. Marybeth did a fabulous job for us! Less ... More

Helped me find a home to rent
We contacted Marybeth a few months ago to assist us in purchasing a rental property. Marybeth came highly recommended from our friends who are savvy real estate investors. Marybeth was everything our friends had represented to us and more. Marybeth is extremely knowledgeable about the market. At all times, she was professional and a pleasure to work with.

We were looking to buy our very first investment property in Boulder. I was wary of what I?d come to believe was the typical realtor: smooth, persuasive and sometimes intimidating and pushy. MaryBeth was none of these. She was real, considerate, highly responsive and professional. She went above and beyond and somehow added a real dose of humanity to our business transactions. Our situation was unusual for two reasons: we were buying two properties within two days and we had to be out of the country between putting in the offers and the closings -- a seemingly impossible situation, there was so much to do. But MaryBeth stepped in to help arrange inspections and all the details for closing -- she was more like our personal assistant than our realtor. If I had the smallest enquiry/concern I'd text her and have an answer almost immediately. She was so well connected that she could recommend, contact and even pay people to do the necessary due diligence while we were out of the country. I felt I could trust and rely on her to respond to all my newbie concerns promptly and with precision. We will be using her for all our future investments. Quite frankly I can?t imagine anyone I?d rather deal with in this area. Less ... More

Marybeth is a gifted designer, assertive businesswoman, and top-notch real estate agent. We knew from our first conversation with her that we had a sharp, personable, and incredibly proactive advocate in finding a home in a new city. She worked tirelessly with us, focusing on properties that fit our priorities and budget - and we had fun throughout the whole process! In the end, we found a property in a great location that is perfect for our family and Marybeth adeptly negotiated the contracts details. We've worked with many real estate agents in the past and Marybeth is far and away the most knowledgable, trustworthy, and personally invested of the lot. We'll never work with anyone else. Thanks, Marybeth! Less ... More

I'm very happy to write a review of our experience working with Marybeth Emerson of Colorado Landmark Realty in Boulder, Colorado. Sorry this review is long. I thought it was best to provide some detail and make it clear that this is an honest review from a real client of Marybeth's... Marybeth helped us find and buy a very special home in Boulder. My wife and I were transferred to the area on assignment from NASA in Houston. We started our search just looking for a rental with thoughts of buying a home in a year if the assignment became long term. Even though hunting for rentals is probably the least interesting and beneficial activity for a realtor, Marybeth's enthusiasm and optimism never wavered. It was very clear how well Marybeth knows the unique Boulder and surrounding area market. She also approaches real estate with an investor's eye and sensitivity. With Marybeth's counseling and education we eventually felt like we were knowledgeable enough of the area and where/how we wanted to live that we decided to go ahead and buy property. Marybeth showed us property after property all over town over a period of many weeks. Of course, we wanted to "fall in love" with a house at as low a price as possible. So Marybeth patiently worked with us as we went through a process of bumping up our purchase budget to find a home that really inspired us. The Boulder home we eventually bought we first found on Zillow from Houston. Marybeth hadn't yet shown it to us because it was still above our stated price point. At our request, she checked it out and knowing our preferences knew we would love it. And we did. Actually buying the house had its challenges, too -- not just because we ended up at a high end price point. The sellers frustration with his listing agent prompted him to fire his realtor take his home off the market. Serendipity resulted in Marybeth's broker being contacted by the seller to explore the possibility of listing again the following year. He did not know he was Marybeth's broker that had made a previous offer. There was some drama and complications -- but the two were able to bring the seller to the table and get to an agreement everyone was satisfied with. Marybeth is not a typical realtor. She has degrees in business and interior design. She sees the design, style/art (or lack of) in homes and the financial considerations critical to real estate. She has a great, positive attitude and is enthusiastic about what she does and loves Boulder. Marybeth Emerson is the best realtor I've ever worked with. I whole heartedly recommend her as a realtor -- especially if someone wants to buy a home in Boulder, Colorado. Less ... More
