Quick Questions with Chiara
Where do you live in Denver?
I live in the Clayton neighborhood, which is just north of City Park, with my husband and 3 dogs. Clayton is a vibrant and tight-knit neighborhood. I feel lucky to have landed there and cannot imagine living anywhere else in Denver.
Why did you get into real estate?
My background is international politics and human rights. I have always had a global view of the world and have held a wide range of jobs. After I moved back to Denver I worked with at risk and refugee youth for several years and then decide to transfer to a more flexible lifestyle and found a job with international corporate relcoation. I loved this job as I was always meeting people and helping them adjust into a new culture and finding the right house and neighborhood was a big part of this. I enjoyed it so much I decided to obtain my real estate license and have not looked back since. Real estate is a constant stream of meeting new people and ongoing education, both of which keep me happy!
What causes get your time and money?
Dogs and teenagers are my two big passions and both have always been a big part of my life, especially since I do not have children. My husband and I adopt senior dogs and usually have 3-4 dogs in our home at any given time. I am also invoved with a rescue group in the mountains. Currently I also mentor two students at Denver East High School. I cannot imagine life without them, they teach me the world as much as I teach them. I also stay very involved with a core group of neighbors in Clayton to organize multiple events thoughout the year.
What are your passions outside of real estate?
I had the pleasure of having Chiara’s support in my relocation process. As my Realtor, she helped me find the right house in the right neighborhood for the right price and in the school district I wanted for my kids, which was so important for me!
She took care of all the details, and since I just moved in to the country I had so many questions and she spent all the necessary time to help me. I will definitely call Chiara again, she’s the best!!
Mexico --> Cherry Creek neighborhood
We had an excellent experience with Chiara when we were looking for houses in the Denver area. She knows the Denver neighborhoods incredibly well - which was impressive. She understood our parameters and offered excellent guidance to fine tune our specifications, realistically. We were succesful very quickly in finding the right property and the closing was straightforward.
We definitely recommend Chiara for her professional expertise, understanding, and knowledge of the property market here in the Denver area.
United Kingdom --> 5 Points neighborhood
A realtor is not a salesperson--they're a matchmaker, introducing people to homes until they fall in love.
When we moved to Denver from Mexico with our two teenage children plus our two big four legs family members, Fido our mastiff and Lionel our boxer, we were overwhelmed.
Chiara helped us to find our home. She was patient and attentive and she was very perceptive to understand our special needs. Even in a very competitive market, she managed to find the perfect place for us.
Mexico --> Washington Park neighborhood
I have worked with Chiara on two occasions, buying property in Lakewood and in Denver. Both times the entire process was painless, and very professional. From the searching, negotiating, and settlement phases, everything was seamless thanks to Chiara’s attention to detail, and her experience.
Both purchases were completed when I was out of state, so the completed documents were signed electronically. This procedure was also made simple by Chiara’s efforts. Chiara is a pleasure to work with, and I look forward to working with her again in the near future.
