Laura started working in 2000 at McKesson as a programmer of hospital software. Four years later, when her first of three children were born, she began her next career as a stay-at-home mom for 12 years. Having lived in Boulder, Superior, Erie and now Louisville, she has been proud to call Boulder County “home” for the last 24 years.

Meet Melissa, E and L Team’s Licensed REALTOR® Assistant
Melissa is a Costa Rican native who fell in love with CO when she first visited the state as a teenager for her brother’s graduation from CSU. In 2018, she finally traded the beach and rainforest for the Rocky Mountains and established her home in Erie, along with her husband and two sons. Leaving her legal career behind was an easy choice for her once she found her passion for real estate. Her 15 years of communication and negotiating skills as an immigration attorney are now one of her greatest assets when helping buyers and sellers throughout a transaction. Plus being fully bilingual can sometimes come in handy too! As E and L Team’s licensed assistant, Melissa is instrumental in putting the finishing touches on E and L Team’s listings and is there to promptly help our buyers compete in our brisk and often competitive real estate market. Spending time with her family fills her heart and brings her happiness but she also enjoys CrossFit, camping, and snowboarding.
