Buyer's Information Page

Buyers in Colorado have the option of working with a Realtor as their own Buyer’s Agent. According to the Colorado Real Estate Commission, a Buyer’s Agent works solely on behalf of the buyer to promote the interests of the buyer.

Forest and Lake Real Estate Broker/owner, Penny Hamilton has worked with buyers as their personal Buyer’s agent. Here are few of their comments:

“You provided support, information and expertise that made all the difference in our move to Grand County. You really go the extra mile. We highly recommend you to anyone requiring expert real estate services.” Tammy Eatough

“Thank you for taking care of us during our recent Winter Park purchase. Your extensive knowledge of the area and attention to detail really make a fairly expedited purchase go smoothly. Probably the most impressive aspect of working with you was that you cared about us rather than a particular property or deal. I would highly recommend you, (In fact, I already have!) to anyone purchasing property in Grand County.” Chris Bremer

“What a ‘Top-Notch’ agent you are Penny Hamilton. Your consistent attention to detail and absolutely superb communications provided us complete confidence throughout our entire condo selection and purchasing experience.” Walter Clarke

“Thank you for all your help with our Grand County real estate needs. You have gone above and beyond the call of duty. You saved us much heartache with our move. We are so pleased with our property. May God bless you.” Erika Schambach

“We were expecting good knowledge of the area, as well as expertise helping us purchase in the Winter Park area. Penny’s guidance was tailored to our wants and needs without any undue pressure that would only be intended to help her ‘make a sale.’ While buying our mountain home, we made a great and trusted friend in Penny.” Milia Haydar

Please contact me to discuss your Colorado Mountain property because Grand County is a buyers’ market with many opportunities to enjoy a unique community. In my opinion, Grand County Real Estate is very special.

Many years ago, I wrote an article for the Winter Park Manifest called “Acres of Diamonds” which won their writing award. Having graduated from Temple University in Philadelphia, PA, I recounted the story told by Rev. Russell Conwell, the founder of Temple.

In the days of Chautauqua, which was a delivery system for community continuing education where eloquent speakers would tour the country captivating audiences with unique stories and messages, Conwell raised most of the money to build the University by delivering the famous “Acres of Diamonds” speech to thousands of eager listeners in the early 1800s.

In a nutshell, “Acres of Diamonds” is a true story of a man who left his home in search of riches. He did not find it. He ended up destitute and alone. Finally he threw himself into the sea. After his death on the original land he had abandoned, the world’s largest diamond mine was discovered.

The obvious point of a very long story is “diamonds” are often right under your feet. In Grand County, as the sun rises, you can often look out the window at the snow. The sun reflects on the ice crystals and they can shimmer as diamonds do.

Grand County is often described as “the last great place.” Realtors, who usually only speak in adjectives, are thrilled to share our sense of community pride and the natural beauty of the area.

Locals say, “Living in Grand County is just like Living in a Postcard.”  Very few Colorado resort areas have the mountains and the lakes, the YMCA of the Rockies, the Devil’s Thumb Ranch, the C-lazy U Ranch, extensive hiking and biking trails and lots of open space within such a short trip to a major metropolitan area as Denver.

When you invest in Grand County, you are making a life-style investment.
