About Me

Click Here Element 9

Prior to becoming a licensed Realtor I worked as an Adult Protective Services Caseworker and I have a ton of experience navigating the probate process through the legal system. Selling a home in the midst of the probate requires a unique set of skills.

Whether a loved one passed away or became incapacitated and real estate needs to be sold as a part of that process I am here to help! I provide an immense value to my clients by capitalizing on my background and providing a “one stop shop” to clients navigating this process. See my “what’s included” page to see what I pay for out of my commission as a part of working with me.

What’s Included?

What’s unique about me is that I am truly a “one stop shop!” I pay for many things out of pocket to get the job done as efficiently as possible. Here is a list of what’s included when working with me:

  • Staging. A home that is staged sells for 20% more and 88% faster than a home left vacant according to Realtor.com.
  • Extensive Marketing. I pay for professional photography, videography, Matterport 3D tours, an abundance of print marketing, as well as Social Media ads, Television Ads & an ad placed in 5280 Magazine.
  • 1 Year Home Warranty. Oftentimes homes that are part of an estate have deferred maintenance. I pay for a 1 year home warranty that covers you as the seller & then transfers to the buyer upon closing.

I can also refer you to my extensive network of Estate Sales, Junk Haulers, Move Out Cleaners, Long Term Care Locators and More!

Happy Clients

Danielle sold my Son's house for me. It was in probate and she knew exactly how to handle this sale for me. I couldn't have asked for a more knowledge and qualified agent for this situation. She was so kind and caring. She did everything she could to make this sale as smooth as possible. I live in a different state than the house and she took care of everything I needed because I couldn't be there to take care of it myself. She is the best agent you could ask for. This was in Probate and she knew exactly how to handle this sale professionally and timely.

Over the years we have worked with several agents and Danielle is far the best we have had. Danielle did those extra steps to get the house staged, photographed and prepped to give it the best views and selling points. She did open houses and was always available to work through the process of selling and closing on the home. Danielle did a fantastic job for us and we felt she earned her commission and then some. We always felt we could trust her and that she was looking after our best interests. We can truly recommend Danielle to anyone looking to buy or sell a home in our area.

An Introduction To Probate In Colorado

What Is Probate?

Probate is the legal process through which a deceased person's estate is settled or an incapacitated person’s assets are handled moving forward. In Colorado, the probate court oversees this process, ensuring the proper distribution of assets and resolution of outstanding debts.

Can Probate Be Avoided?

Probate can be avoided, or limited, in a variety of ways. The following must be initiated when the individual is of sound mind: a living trust, a beneficiary deed/payable upon death accounts, small asset estates (under $50,000 and no real property) or uncontested estates among other things. It is best to contact a practicing elder law or probate attorney for specifics. See my list of trusted attorneys.

When Can Real Estate Be Sold?

If probate must be initiated for real property to be sold, then either the Personal Representative or Conservator must receive letters from the court in order to sell real property and engage a Realtor. Before a Realtor is engaged a thorough inventory of assets must be documented.

How Is The Property Conveyed?

In order to sell real property, the Personal Representative or Conservator must receive permission from the court to do so. The property will be conveyed via a Personal Representatives Deed. Title companies will conduct closings, but will not create these deeds. Only an attorney can create Personal Representatives Deeds in Colorado.
