Agent Spotlight:Lisa Bennison Noll
Thirty-seven years ago Lisa Bennison Noll started her business career on the floor of the Chicago Board Options Exchange. Subsequently, she went to law school and practiced family and real estate law. Now, real estate brokerage is her passion. She is the managing broker at RE/MAX properties of the Summit. Contact her at (970) 389-6115 or online at http://www.lisabennisonnoll.com.Q: Where have you lived?I grew up in Palatine, Ill., went to college just north of Boston, then back to Chicago. I married my husband, Thad, who was an Army officer, and we lived in Lawton, Okla.; Lawrence, Kan., where I went to law school and Colorado Springs. When he retired from the military, we made a beeline for Summit County where he is the assistant county manager.Q: What do you love about Summit County? It is the people. Here friendships are based on common interests – art, hiking, skiing, biking, music. It has been my experience that in most communities, you socialize with people of your same age and socio-economic group and don’t venture too far outside. In Summit County, I find it is all about substance, not how old you are, social stature or wealth.Q: What do you enjoy doing when you’re not working? I love creating art-painting, collage, metal sculpture, welding. See my most recent piece, Diamonds and Rust, displayed in Blue River Plaza in Breck as part of Sculpture on the Blue.Q: How long have you worked in real estate? Ten wonderful years.Q: What is your specialty? Although I have sold commercial real estate, residential real estate is what I love.Q: What designations do you have and what does that mean for people you work with? I have an active Colorado law license. I attend the Colorado Bar Association Real Estate Symposium for three days annually to stay up on the happenings in Colorado real estate law, as well as attending other legal and real estate education. Each year the statutory and case laws change or are amended and, as a result, we as brokers receive new contracts that we must use at the start of each calendar year. It helps my clients and me that I am up-to-date on these aspects of Colorado law.Q: What is the most challenging/gratifying aspect of what you do?I am thrilled when I find the perfect home for a family so that they can live and enjoy the area just like we do.Q: What are the top three things that separate you from your competitors? I think we have a great group of Realtors in Summit County. We have lost many Realtors over the past three years due to the economy. The Realtors that have survived the economic downturn are, for the most part, extremely experienced in all market conditions, very professional and committed to the best interest of their clients. Q: What is one tip you have for someone looking to buy or sell a home?I think that it is ill-advised for sellers to sell their own homes. Often sellers think it is easy and that they will save money. Neither is true. Time and time again, I see sellers who leave large amounts of money on the table because they do not understand pricing, marketing and negotiation. As with any big financial decision in life, rely on professionals for the best result.Q: What do you see in the future for real estate sales and prices?As the economy improves and more buyers enter the market, we will see an uptick in pricing. It is simple supply and demand and Summit County is almost out of buildable space. As far as timing, I think it will be at least a year or two before we see prices rise at a noticeable rate.Q: Why should someone chose you as their real estate broker?I cannot think of a reason why they wouldn’t choose me. I work for the number one real estate company in the world: RE/MAX International. Also, I believe in supplying all relevant information to my clients so that they can make educated, informed decisions. Plus, what is more fun than looking at real estate?
