Karen Valdez

I am a native of Colorado growing up in Littleton. I graduated from the University of Colorado in Boulder. I have been a world traveler and continue my quest to learn about people and places. I first traveled extensively in the international group Up with People and then as a flight attendant for Frontier, and United Airlines. My husband and I live in Denver with our rescued cat Stache. We love Colorado. We love skiing all winter long, and golfing in the summer. We love to try all the new restaurants and participate in the theater and sporting events throughout the year. Colorado is the place we call home and I look forward to opening the Doorways to your Dreams.

Professional Experience

My skills from 25 years as a flight attendant served me well in managing time and people. I come from a hard-working family who instilled a strong sense of work ethic and I have built a trusted reputation. I listen closely to my clients to understand their lifestyle, work life, and family needs. I want to understand and help guide them through the home buying or selling experience. Different circumstances and times of life influence the decisions people make, and I am certainly here to lead you through these stages. I navigate the process to make the transaction of home ownership smooth and seamless. I truly enjoy my clients, and they become lifelong friends. I have an extensive network of Realtors® and professionals to help create your house into a home. Your Home is the largest asset in your financial portfolio, and I am an expert in assisting in making your wealth grow. I am partnered with Coldwell Banker Realty and their wonderful culture of Awesomeness: remarkable service, building wealth, growth, fun, and giving. I am a full-time Realtor® who is professional in all matters and will help you open the Doorways to Dreams.


Community Involvement

I have a true commitment to giving back to my community. I have volunteered my time, resources, and heart to many, not-for-profit organizations: The Jr. League of Denver has been part of my life since 1989, working on committees, and continued service on their Board of Directors in many capacities. Other organizations are The Action Center, P.E.O., Tri Delta Sorority, Providence Network, The Pinehurst Foundation, and of course I continue to be active in Up with People. I represent my cast, A78, to the International Alumni Association. I also served on the International Board of Governors for 7 years and have chaired several committees including the GALA Fundraising committee for 2 years.
