More about Laurie Ristig
Originally from Phoenix, Arizona, I moved to Colorado Springs with my family in 2011. I have an eclectic background to say the least! I have degrees in both Business Management and Arts Management from Northern Arizona University, spent four years in the Army Corps of Engineers, and also served as Program Coordinator for the New Mexico MLK, Jr. Commission in Albuquerque. I was once a proud foster parent (and am now just a regular parent!) of a beautiful daughter, and also have two biological children of my own with my amazing and supportive husband, Pete.
As a Colorado Springs transplant, I've spent the last nine years immersing myself into the Colorado Springs community. I am a co-founder of Mountain Song Community School in Old Colorado City, and spent three years serving on their board of directors. I'm also the co-owner of Pikes Peak Grappling, a local company that puts on two Brazilian Jiu Jitsu tournaments each year at the City Auditorium! I love attending theatrical productions, the Fine Arts Center, and exploring everything that downtown Colorado Springs, Manitou Spring, and OCC has to offer.
I understand that buying and selling a home can be one of the biggest decisions in a person’s life, and am passionate about making it as painless and stress-free as possible! Educating buyers and sellers on the real estate process so that they feel at ease is important to me. Representation and guidance of my clients through this process as a true privilege, and do everything in my power to put your needs first.
I also believe that when selling a home, image is everything. Before getting licensed in 2017, I spent two years working and practicing the art of Real Estate Marketing. Creating beautiful marketing materials, and properly advertising your home to show it in its best light and to as many buyers as possible is key to getting more and better offers.
In an effort to support schools and the community I live in, I donate 10% of my net commissions to local schools and non-profits!
