About Liz Benson

I moved to Boulder from Indianapolis to attend the University of Colorado in 1983. Like many CU graduates who fall in love with this enchanting place, I chose to stay. I enjoy the many recreational opportunities the mountains provide as well as the progressive energy of this lively community. I live in North Boulder with my husband of 26 years, have a daughter in college and a lively border collie. If you live here too, you know how lucky we are and if you are considering making this community your new home, I welcome the opportunity to introduce you to Boulder and our surrounding areas.

Having lived here for decades, I am also happy to share the knowledge I've gained from sending my daughter to area schools from pre-school to high school, both public and private, plus how to navigate our Open Enrollment process. Or, if you are interested in recreational opportunities, the arts or other local activities, I can help with ideas and connections in those areas as well.

In my spare time, I like to take on DIY home remodeling and decorating projects. I am also a bit of a Hawaii fanatic having been there numerous times. Maybe I will retire there one day - a girl can dream right!

Working in real estate in Boulder since 1992, I have extensive experience in buying and selling homes and investment properties throughout the county, including urban, suburban, rural and mountain properties. My focus is on making the process run smoothly and providing you with all of the expertise and advice you need to make your move a success.

Liz was awesome, she took us to see a ton of homes, and she has a ton of knowledge about Boulder and the surrounding areas, schools, shopping, what to look for in homes and what to avoid, etc. It was such a pleasure working with Liz, she was very accommodating to our schedules and she made the process very enjoyable for us. I would say if it had not been for her we would not have found the perfect place. If we ever look to buy or sell again in Boulder she will definitely be our first call.

We highly recommend Liz. She has great attention to detail. For example, the title company missed some of the seller credit and she noticed it and chased it up for us. She also knows about the local areas, past sales and up-coming new developments. She is always very responsive and helpful.
We’ve had many realtors over the years and by far, Liz was the best. She worked with us as though she was trying to meet the criteria she would personally expect in a realtor who was helping her buy a home.
Liz was always well prepared and one who would see to things before we asked and to things during the process about which we didn’t even know to ask. She was honest and careful to inform us of positives and negatives related to location, price, condition, and quality of homes. She quickly deciphered the descriptions of homes we liked and disliked and recommended appropriate homes to meet our needs and wants. We felt well educated about the areas and neighborhoods when we finally chose a house. When we purchased our home, we felt confident it was a smart move .... and if we ever decided to move again, Liz would be our realtor!
Liz met with me several times prior to putting my home on the market. She helped me prepare my home for the sale and was thorough in her explanations of the process. She was always quick to respond to my many questions. My home was under contract six days after listing!

Liz is a very capable and knowledgeable agent. She was very clear and specific on things we could do to improve the curb appeal of our home. She continually made herself available to accommodate meeting times that were convenient for us. Thanks to her vibrant personality and considerable expertise, our selling process was expedited and enjoyable. We highly recommend that if you are buying or selling real estate in the Boulder area that you use Liz!
Liz took the time to understand what I wanted in a home. She is very knowledgable in all aspects of real estate and was so patient with me! I would certainly recommend Liz as a realtor.

We were relocating from out of state to the Boulder area. Liz was a tremendous help to us in learning about the area and options available. After speaking with her about our needs, she sent us information to get ready for our visit. When we arrived she was totally prepared to show property that met our criteria perfectly. Her knowledge of the area and the market was invaluable. She was with us every step of the way to provide guidance right through our home purchase. We recommend Liz to anyone looking for a great agent!

I've known Liz for 8 years and she has helped us purchase two homes and sell one of them. I recommend her to anyone looking to buy or sell a home. She is very knowledgeable, hard working, and supportive. It can be very stressful to buy/sell, and she does a great job helping you navigate the world of real estate and see the bigger picture.
Liz Benson went above and beyond whatever one would expect from a real estate agent. She made our transition from California to Colorado fairly seamless. She vetted houses before we came in to town so that we spent our time looking at the most viable options. She understood what we were looking for in our new home in Colorado and delivered that and more. We couldn't have been happier with our experience with Liz!
Liz Benson helped me and my husband purchase a condo for investment opportunities. She was wonderful to work with and we highly recommend her. She is very detailed oriented and made the entire process easy from start to closing. We plan to have her help us with future real estate endeavors.
