Meet Laura Shaffer!

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, 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.

Meet Elizabeth Ryterski!

Elizabeth and her husband were born and raised in Southern Illinois. Elizabeth attended the University of Illinois and Southern Illinois University, receiving a math degree in 1992. After moving from Southern Illinois to Boulder County in 1994, Elizabeth taught secondary math for five years. She then spent 12 years at home with her three children. In 2009, she began working at RE/MAX Alliance of Boulder with Team Mazur, first as an assistant and then as a broker. In 2015, Elizabeth joined RE/MAX Alliance Louisville and partnered with Laura Shaffer to form E and L Team at RE/MAX Elevate.  

Elizabeth enjoys spending her time away from real estate watching movies and doing Liberty puzzles with friends and family, traveling to Disney with her husband and kids, serving her church and community, and volunteering with the Monarch High School Booster Club.



"We had an excellent experience with Elizabeth & Laura in both selling & purchasing our homes. They provided strong local knowledge of the real estate market, superb negotiation skills, and outstanding customer service. We felt confident in their ability to ensure our home purchasing and selling  process was smooth. We would highly recommend their real estate services to anyone looking to buy or sell a home in the Front Range real estate market." - Bought a Lafayette townhome in 2016 for $370k, sold home in Louisville for $400k in 2015

"We had a wonderful experience buying and selling with Elizabeth and Laura. They were extremely knowledgeable, quick, and very honest with us through the whole process. They did a fantastic job helping us stage our home and get it ready to sell. Both the selling and buying process were extremely  smooth. We would highly recommend them!"- Bought in Erie in 2015 and Sold in Thornton in 2015.

"Our experience with Elizabeth & Laura could not have been better. Moving to Colorado from Ohio seemed daunting. Once we were in their care all seemed not only achievable but also enjoyable. They were always attentive, sharing a highly experienced perspective with each house of interest. In a  incredibly competitive market they confidently calculated the perfect offering price for a multi - bid situation. We can't say enough positive things about the E & L team. Choosing them was the absolute best decision we could have made." -Bought a Single Family home in 2016 for approximately $450K in Evergreen, CO.

Laura is passionate about the community where she lives and works...a true "Hometown" realtor, actively involved in her community, volunteering at and sponsoring events that bring the community together.  She takes pride in her job as a real estate advisor to family, friends, and clients. Laura has the patience to truly understand her client’s wants and needs when they need to move, often during life’s major changes.  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.”

When she's away from the office, Laura enjoys volunteering at Louisville Elementary and with the Monarch High School Booster club, watching HGTV, cheering on the Packers with her husband during football season, hiking with friends in the foothills of Boulder, playing games with her three kids, and dreaming of her next vacation to Costa Rica. 

We are proud to support these organizations and events in our community

We offer double the expertise for no extra fees or costs to you

"Even with my gift for hyperbole I cannot express the detailed level of service we received from E&L.  But here is at least one small story to illustrate how they go above and beyond.  We left for the first weekend our house was on the market to facilitate multiple house showings.  E&L graciously offered to open and shut down our house each day while we were away.  When we returned late Sunday night we noticed that the two or three bananas we left on the counter were gone and we figured, "oh, one of the people that saw our house must've helped themselves to the bananas."  No big deal.  Then we opened our fridge and saw that E&L went the extra mile to save our bananas.  If you already have a realtor ask yourself, does your realtor care about you and your house all the way down to your fruit?  If not, you need to switch to E&L team.  By the way, that first weekend was the only weekend E&L needed to sell our house." - Sold a Louisville home in 2017 for $1M, bought a home in Boulder for $800k.

We are proud to present on Friday, August 17 our 3rd annual Movie in the Park - a FREE family event open to the public at Louisville's Community Park.  Audience members are encouraged to bring food, blankets, and lawn chairs for the events.  The Movie in the Park show will begin around dusk.  Attendees are encouraged to arrive beginning at 6:00 pm and to bring lawn games to enjoy until the movie begins.  The Sweet Cow Moo-mobile will be there at 6:30pm so bring your moo-ney!  Thank you to Human Movement for powering the movie!
