Business Philosophy

A lifetime of steeping within the family real estate business and 20+ years of business savvy, great enthusiasm for helping people buy and sell their homes, a zest for life and an awesome work ethic prepare me to optimally serve your real estate needs.  But you don’t have to believe me, go to my endorsements and see what my past clients say about me.

In short, I am dedicated to helping you achieve your real estate goals, and to claim new visas. With unparalleled, sophisticated strategies, I and the Coldwell Banker marketing and closing teams will exceed your expectations in delivery of smooth transaction processes which minimize the time, cost and stress associated with selling or buying your home, moving or investing in property.  Striving for excellence in all I do, I enjoy specializing in relocation, premium and semi-rural properties and whatever your heart desires in the way of real estate.


Marlena works as a collaborative partner, blending business savvy with creativity and intuition.  Besides being easy to work with, she is energetic and was capable of thinking outside the box to get our one-of-a-kind commercial/residential property sold.  Going the extra mile included holding numerous open houses, and even finding a company to shovel snow when I was out of town.  She diligently kept up with the trail of near-offers, staying abreast of all whispers in the wind, and worked with us to expertly land a buyer, including the journey through negotiations and the closing process with all its ups, downs and intricacies.   It was a pleasure to work with Marlena, a capable professional and a brilliant salesperson.”  - Ben Lipman, Ayurvedic Practitioner

"Working with Marlena has been wonderful, both at a professional and at a personal level. I decided to sell my condo within a year of moving away from Boulder, and I was concerned about going through the whole process while being distant and having a very busy work schedule  Marlena made the process absolutely seamless, and helped me much beyond her 'official' duties. In particular, when repairs were requested by the buyers, Marlena was instrumental in finding the best possible contractors at reasonable cost. The care that she has for her clients comes across through every aspect of the interaction with her. I could not imagine any better real estate agent."       Rosalba Perna, Professor Astrophysics, Stony Brook University

My home held precious memories and represented the last vestiges of my being single. Deciding to sell it was emotional, and Marlena made the process comfortable, easy and profitable…and fast! Sensitive, efficient and savvy, Marlena was wonderful; she exceeded my expectations, and I wholeheartedly recommend her!”  Sally Hughart, Bookkeeper/Office Manager, Attention Homes

"Marlena is the quintessential professional. She achieves excellent results while never compromising her integrity. She is fun, passionate, intelligent and detail oriented - what a combo! I heartily endorse her.” Ian Browde, Director Marketing & Business Development, Nokia

Marlena brings an almost supernatural energy to all of her relationships that instantly engenders trust and confidence. She instinctively interacts with people in ways that inspire them; she asks very insightful questions that confirm she really cares about the people she works with. Although she looks like a super model, she's not a delicate prima donna; she's a tough girl with an exceptional work ethic. She's a joy to work with.” Ferris Eanfar, Chief Operating Officer, TMax Capital

“Marlena is one of the best, if not the best, sales person I have ever had the pleasure to work alongside." Beth Baxter, President, B&B Audio

What Rocks My World

Living in Boulder for 25 years has been like a dream.  I spend my favorite leisure time dancing Argentine tango, swimming outdoors (yes, even in winter), and hiking our beautiful Front Range. I am a very proud mother of an angel and my best friend, Heather, who is a social worker in Boulder County. When I have time I write a creative column online and review books for New World Library, a very inspired publisher which is dedicated to contributing to making a better world.
