Hi friends, Thanks for visiting Charming Colorado Properties. I'm Megan Van Eldik. I'm a Colorado licensed Broker Associate, REALTOR with HomeSmart. I have a love for homes with character and interesting architecture. Denver native + my Rountree family homesteaded on the plains of Colorado, out old Smoky Hill Rd. My understanding of the land goes way back.
I know the ins and outs of Denver area neighborhoods and can help guide you in the right direction. Each Denver area neighborhood has its own vibe. I enjoy helping clients learn about the area and to fall in love with the part of town most fitting of their lifestyle, needs. I work with current residents, as well as enjoy helping new residents relocate to the Mile High City. I've lived in Littleton, Rosedale, University Park, Wash Park, Platt Park, DU, Cory-Merrill, West Highland / Berkeley and Boulder, throughout my life. I've spent a thorough amount of time with family and friends in The Vail Valley, The Pinery + Pradera, Parker, DTC, Greenwood Village, Virginia Dale, Evergreen, Golden and Aurora. These are all communities I cherish.
I understand how stressful the real estate process has the potential to be. I do my best to make selling and buying as painless as possible. Hopefully we'll even have some fun getting to the closing table! I'd love the honor of letting me put my professionalism to work for you.
Before I entered real estate, I spent most of my career creating / selling media and advertising campaigns including digital, radio, TV, social media and promotional events. My background in sales and marketing allow me to best promote my client's properties, to maximize interest, offers and price. I excel at negotiation and I will get you to the closing table. Let me help you formulate a custom plan to win at the game of Colorado real estate.
I'm a mom who recently spent an extensive amount of time visiting + researching the ins and outs of public school districts, neighborhood schools, private schools, special programs, etc. Finding the right school for your children is oh so important, I get it. I excel at helping families find the right community with the right education set up. Always happy to discuss pros, cons, academics, fundraising, diversity, etc.
Growing up in the city, attending inner city Denver Public Schools and being bussed across town, from University Park to north of City Park, for years of elementary school, helped shape my understanding of Denver. I left for two years to attend Lehigh University in Bethlehem, PA, gain a little east coast polish + attitude and then transferred home to University of Colorado at Boulder to finish my business degree, with a focus on marketing and finance. Architectural History at Lehigh and a favorite real estate class at CU Boulder sparked the idea of real estate sales as a future career. Thankful now also for my economics classes, which helped formulate a basic understanding and interest in the real estate market. I am fascinated by how supply and demand play out day to day in real estate.
I live in Littleton with my husband, daughter and cat, Garfield. When not selling homes, you'll find me skiing, canoeing, paddle boarding, hiking, biking, gardening, updating our home, volunteering at our local elementary school, at a city council meeting, or behind my Nikon. I love animals and am buddies with all the neighborhood pets.
Always glad to discuss anything real estate and the Denver metro market, mountains, etc. Reach me at 303.946.6007, for a free estimate of the value of your home, OR to see a property. : ), Megan
