As an agent who's an expert in Golden, Colorado and Denver Metro as a whole, I bring a wealth of knowledge and expertise about buying and selling real estate here. It's not the same everywhere, so you need someone you can trust for up-to-date information. I am eager to serve you. Here are some of the things I can do for you:
Find Your Next Home
You need someone who knows this area inside and out! I can work with you to find the right home at the right price for you, including all the neighborhood amenities that matter - not to mention the essential criteria you have for your ideal home
Sell a Home
When it's time to move, you need someone who will advertise your home, show to prospective buyers, negotiate the purchase contract, arrange financing, oversee the inspections, handle all necessary paperwork and supervise the closing. I can take care of everything you need, from start to close.
Consult on Home Selling Tactics
Oftentimes buyers don't visualize living in your home the way you do. I can make your home attractive to its ideal audience - which can help you get top dollar. Things like staging the home, making repairs or minor improvements, or even simply painting the walls can be the difference between a home resting on the market and one that's sold fast.
Meet the Team
Erik Gruenwald - Owner/Listing Specialist
As an active real estate investor, I have hands-on experience in helping clients make sound real estate investment choices and I really enjoy helping my clients find those hidden GEMS.
I currently live in Golden with my incredible wife and two rescue pups. I love the large lots that lie in this area of Denver as they give plenty of room for the dogs to roam, and me and my wife also maintain a ‘farm to table’ garden. I have lived in Colorado since 2002 and spend all of my free time wandering the Rockies. Whether on Telemark ski’s, mountain or road biking, hiking another 14er, camping, or just going for an afternoon drive, the mountain lifestyle will always be a part of my life.
You can be assured to find an attitude of excellence, a commitment to personal service, a foundation of knowledge, a solid reputation and proven performance in every single aspect of your real estate transaction. For me, the best part about being a Realtor is the opportunity to meet so many interesting people. It is no surprise that so many of my past clients have become lifelong business partners and friends
Janet Gruenwald RN, CCRN, RYT, Licensed Real Estate Agent - Business Manager
Yes, that’s a lot of letters after my name. My road to working in real estate has been one filled with a variety of positions from customer service, to teaching English overseas, to serving in a fast-paced mountain town restaurant, and then to my most recent position as a nurse in a critical care setting for over five years. My goal in joining the Green Forest Properties team is to focus on building our business, by directing energy toward the organization of systems, financials, and phenomenal follow up. My background of working in many different industries gives me a unique perspective in real estate. All of my past positions have involved a high level of service and what you would call a “servant heart” which I carry with me into real estate, knowing that the care of the client is of the utmost importance.
I fell into real estate by default as my husband Erik joined the industry years before me and recruited me to bring my skillset to help guide the business. I share his vision of building a business that allows us to live the lifestyle we enjoy by giving us the freedom to spend time with family and do the activities we love while contributing to our community. We live in Golden with our two rescue pups and love the small town atmosphere combined with the proximity to both the city and the mountains. In my free time you can find me tending to my backyard garden, practicing yoga, or exploring the beauty of Colorado’s mountains on skis or a bike. I also love being involved in the community. A large part of my work with the team is managing our charitable contributions through Green Forest Gives where 5% of our proceeds go to a local charity of our client’s choice.
And back to the letters: RN=Registered Nurse, CCRN=Critical Care Registered Nurse, RYT=Registered Yoga Teacher, and now Licensed Real Estate Agent. It’s a great variety and there are so many transferable skills to the practice of Real Estate. Within the Green Forest Properties Team, you will find me mostly behind the scenes, holding everything together, making sure the vitals of the business are stable and everyone’s needs are being met, not too different from the nurse who takes care of you in the ICU.
"We responded to a cold call from Green Forest Properties Keller Williams Advantage LLC. Green Forest Properties asked if we had property we were considering to sell. The timing worked for us because we were just starting the conversation to sell. Erik came to our property in Lakewood, advised us on asking price, description and word choices we wanted for the MLS, and how to show the property. The results were immediate with an open house on the upcoming weekend. Many agents/walk throughs attended the open house and we had contract procedures underway by the early part of the week following the open house. The closing process was fully explained and Erik's assistant, Maggie, was exemplary in her professionalism. "
