About Me

head shot

I was a visitor of Estes Park, fell in love with the place, and became a resident.

When I was a kid, my parents loaded up the station wagon in our small town of Roscoe, Illinois and we headed West…Colorado bound. Our annual summer vacations at the Estes Park YMCA camp became a tradition. It was easy to fall in love with Rocky Mountain National Park. When my parents retired in Estes Park in 1992, my trips became more frequent until, in 2007, I realized my dream and came to stay. I have witnessed many visitors fall in love with Estes, and decide they don't want to go back home. I know this dream first hand and it is my passion to help others find their place in what I consider “paradise on earth.

I value arts and education in my community.

My previous professional life, I was an art and design instructor. I continue to serve and promote my local arts community as a Board Member of the Estes Arts District. Additionally, I have financially sponsored jazz quartets, western art shows, and other creative ventures in the last year.

A strong school system is vital to any community. To stay in touch with my roots as an educator, and to “pay it forward,” I volunteer with Junior Achievement to teach fourth grade students about entrepreneurship and business.

I am an active business leader in Estes Park.

I am a member of the Estes Valley Partners for Commerce, a group dedicated to advocating and resolving issues facing the business community in Estes. I spent five years as a Director of the Estes Valley Board of Realtors strengthening programs such as down payment assistance, student scholarships and the Estes Valley Housing Initiative. I regularly attend events by the Economic Development Committee and the Town of Estes Park. I am interested in understanding of the politics and development issues our town faces, and enjoy helping clients understand how they might engage in various opportunities.

I can help you find the right corner of town.

I have extensive knowledge of which areas are best for residential life and which are more desirable for investment properties. Also, some are more desirable for privacy, and others for social interaction with retired couples, or young families. Let me be your guide in making the right choice for your next purchase.

Testimonials

Heidi was our agent when we were selling our condo. She was FIRST CLASS and a true professional. She kept us informed all through the process from Listing to Final Closing. We had complete trust in her to take care of all the many details and she did a fabulous job. She is the best and gets right back to you when you have a question or a concern. She is extremely knowledgeable and told us how to easily take care of an inspection item to our satisfaction and the satisfaction of the buyer. We can't say enough good things about Heidi. She is the greatest!
Bob and Karen - Sellers in Estes Park

Heidi Riedesel was very professional in all aspects of listing the property, she does an excellent job advertising the property, and keeping in touch with me. She shared comps with me and made every effort to get the best price for me under difficult circumstances. She made the closing comfortable, handling this with me residing out of town. I would recommend her to others.

/Complicated Sales

We had a very unconventional transaction where we were selling our home and buying a foreclosed property from a bank. Heidi did a great job juggling and being sure all of the relationships, massive amount of paperwork, and nearly endless contract revisions were completed and all "by when" dates were met. Heidi also did a great job communicating everything in a very timely manner - this was critical on these complicated and unconventional transactions.

We highly recommend her, and will certainly do business with her again.

Jeff & Becky R. - Buyers, TX

My home was on the market for 2 years with another realtor. When I hired Heidi, she helped me present my home to a buyer. She told me what I needed to do to market my home. I followed her advice and sold my home in 4 months. I've had a lot of realtors over the years, but Heidi was the most professional realtor I've ever met. I would hire her again and again.

/Second Homes and Investment Properties

Heidi assisted us in purchasing a second home in Estes Park. We looked at approximately a dozen homes through this process. Heidi was responsive and diligent in helping us through the entire process. Her follow up on all matters was second to none. I have worked with many real estate agents over the years and I would put Heidi right at the top with the best of them and recommend her for anyone looking to buy or sell a home.
