Featured Top Agent: Monica D. Anderson
Top Agent Monica D. Anderson of RE/MAX Peak to Peak in Winter Park, Colorado has spent the past fourteen years carving out a reputation as one of the best realtors not only in rural Grand County nestled in the Colorado Rocky Mountains, but in the entire United States
A Nebraska native, Monica graduated from Midland Lutheran College with degrees in both Business Administration and Spanish. Falling in love with the Rocky Mountains during a ski trip, she relocated to the picturesque town of Estes Park Colorado, where she began working as a Personal Broker’s Assistant. In 2003, she obtained her real estate license and moved to the equally scenic resort town of Winter Park to pursue her selling career.
Monica’s commitment to excellence soon became her trademark and she developed her reputation for integrity and trustworthiness that has continued to serve her well, resulting in a thriving business consisting of 70% referrals from satisfied clients. Monica’s relationships and dedication to her customers does not end at the closing table. She continues to maintain these client relationships even after the transactions are completed. “I continue to keep in touch after closing and provide my clients tools that have a shelf life beyond the closing table,” she says. “From house cleaners, to contractors, to local nightly rental companies, my clients have lasting referrals for any of their Grand County needs during their future visits to the area. Working in a 2nd home market, the majority of my clients are 2nd home buyers. These buyers are not from this area and need referrals to equally trustworthy service providers in our County.” Staying in touch takes other forms as well and Monica makes yearly phone calls, sends out quarterly mailers and a bi-annual magazine. When possible she also likes to meet her clients for coffee or even a happy hour cocktail when they’re in town.
While other REALTORS are content to rest on their laurels once they achieve a certain level of success, complacency has never been Monica’s style and she is dedicated to continuing her real estate education in order to better service her clients. One of her proudest achievements in her career is having been awarded the Certified Residential Specialist Designation (CRS), an achievement of which only 3% of all realtors in the United States can boast. “It is my proudest accomplishment,” says Monica, “other than becoming a mother. I feel the professional education it gave and continues to give me is far beyond what I received getting any of my other designations. It is a great network of Realtors to be involved with.” Among her other achievements are the Graduate of Realtors Institute Designation (GRI) and Short Sales and Foreclosure Resource (SFR) certification.
Giving back to her community is important to Monica, and each year she sponsors the Bert & Ernie Golf Classic which benefits the Fraser Learning Center in Fraser, CO. She has also served for the several years on the Grand County Board of Realtors as their Secretary-Treasurer and Community Outreach Liaison. She is presently the Membership Liaison for the Council of Residential Specialists and the incoming President of the CRS Colorado Chapter for 2018.
When she’s not working, Monica enjoys spending time with her young son and her husband. Avid outdoors people, in the winter they can be found availing themselves of their town’s wide variety of activities, including downhill skiing at Winter Park Resort. Cross-country skiing with her son in tow is another favorite winter pastime. In the summers, the family loves camping, mountain biking and whitewater rafting on the Upper Colorado River.
As for the future, Monica looks forward to growing a team. “Right now, I’m pretty close to max capacity as a solo agent,” she says. “Ideally I’d like to bring on a buyer’s agent and assistant as a support network so I can spend more time focusing on my present/past clients and obtaining new listings.”
