Meet Elizabeth, a REALTOR® and the “E” of E and L Team
Elizabeth and her husband have a deep connection to Southern Illinois, where they were both born and raised. Elizabeth’s passion for math led her to pursue higher education, earning a degree in mathematics after attending the University of Illinois and Southern Illinois University graduating in 1992. After teaching secondary mathematics for two years in Southern Illinois, she and her husband decided to move to Boulder County in 1994, where she continued to share her love of mathematics with students in Colorado for three more years. However, after 5 years of service in the education field, Elizabeth decided to take a break to focus on her family and raise her three children for 12 years. In 2009, she returned to the workforce, starting as an assistant at RE/MAX Alliance of Boulder with Team Mazur. With her hard work and dedication, she then obtained her broker license. In 2015, Elizabeth’s entrepreneurial spirit led her to team up with Laura to form E and L Team. In 2019, E and L Team moved to RE/MAX Elevate, located on Main St in Louisville. This office location was the realization of a lifelong dream for Elizabeth, as she has called Louisville home for almost three decades.
When she’s not working, Elizabeth enjoys spending time with family and friends, exploring the local dining scene, playing games and puzzles, camping at the RockyGrass Bluegrass festival, and traveling to Disney with her husband and children.
Meet Laura, a REALTOR®, and the “L” of E and L Team
Laura and her husband grew up in Green Bay, Wisconsin. In 1996, she moved out to Colorado to enjoy the sunshine and to attend the University of Colorado at Boulder where she earned a degree in Chemical Engineering with an emphasis in Computer Science. 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. With an eye always on the local real estate market, her next path led to a career in real estate working with Elizabeth as her agent assistant and home stager, then as a broker and partner at E and L Team at RE/MAX Elevate.
When she’s away from the office, Laura enjoys volunteering at Louisville’s Friday Night Street Faires, cheering on the CU Buffaloes and the Packers with her husband during football season, going to CU basketball games, hiking with friends in the foothills of Boulder, watching movies with her three kids, and dreaming of her next vacation to Costa Rica or the Virgin Islands.
Meet Jennifer, the Operations Manager for E and L Team
Jennifer has Midwestern roots, as well, having grown up in Wisconsin. She attended the University of St Thomas in Minnesota where she earned a BA in Psychology. She moved to Boulder County in 2000 and then obtained a Paralegal Certificate and worked part-time at law firms for 16 years while raising her two sons. In 2017, Jennifer transitioned to real estate and joined E and L Team as an assistant. She is currently their Operations Manager charged with coordinating successful transactions, as well as providing supportive services to clients. In her spare time, she enjoys spending time outdoors hiking and kayaking with her husband and dog, traveling with her family, and reading a good book at home in Lafayette.
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. She also loves talking about Costa Rica and the “Pura Vida” lifestyle to anyone who is planning to visit or just curious about her native country.
Elizabeth and Laura are full-time agents working together as business partners offering unmatched attention to detail, greater responsiveness, and systematic organization within the real estate process. They care about the little things. As a client once said: “Does your Realtor care about you & your house all the way down to your fruit? If not, you need to switch to E & L Team.”
E and L Team is passionate about the community where they live and work…true “Hometown” realtors, actively involved in their community, volunteering at and sponsoring events that bring the community together. They take great pride in their job as a real estate advisors and consultants to family, friends, and clients.
