Personal Information:

I am a native of Colorado, growing up in Littleton. I attended the University of Colorado in Boulder and have continued to live in Denver proper for many years. I love to ski, golf and entertain in my home. I enjoy being around people. I have been married to Tom Valdez since 2001.

I have been a world traveler all my life, first in the international group Up with People, and again as a flight attendant for both Frontier and United Airlines. Changes in the airline industry brought me to my second career. The pleasure I get when working with buyer, especially the first time buyers is thrilling. Usually the young people buying for the first time are like the kids I never had so they all have a special place in my heart and mind. The staging and primping of a seller's home taps into my creative juices. I thrive on making homes sparkle for prospective buyers to come in and want to purchase on the spot. I work diligently when matching my clients and their needs so that I can be clear as to their needs and wants and find their dream home quickly.

I continue to give back to the community my involvement includes: the Junior League of Denver- Sustainers, Tri Delta Sorority, Providence Network, and Up with People in many capacities including Cast Rep - 1978A, member of the International Alumni Association, serving on the board for 7+ years, and chairing various committees on the UWP Gala committee whose events are in the spring.

Karen Valdez was a pleasure to work with. Four months of trying to find the right home, she was extremely patient and helpful! She listened to what we wanted and needed! She also was very attentive and went out of her way to answer any questions or anything we needed. She was there for us! Thank you Karen!!!


I had the pleasure of working with Karen Valdez on my son’s home purchase and I truly believe he couldn’t have done it without her. In the current crazy fast moving Denver real estate market you need someone on your side that you can rely on to be there when you need them. Karen was always available and on top of every aspect of the transaction going above and beyond to insure my son’s home purchase went as smoothly as possible. I would highly recommend Karen to anyone looking to buy or sell a home.   D. Johnson, January 2015


We so enjoyed working with Karen and the Coldwell Banker Staff.  Everyone was so supportive, and Karen was available whenever we had questions.    M. Penny, February 2015


Karen was referred to me by my relocation company. I was moving to Denver from California and I had no real knowledge of the market. There was very little inventory available but Karen consistently found properties for me to review that met my criteria. She must have showed me three dozen places over the course of a few weeks. Instead of pushing me to settle, she patiently worked with me to find the right place. And when I changed my mind on what I was looking for, she pushed back and made sure I had thought things through. When I did find a place Karen was with me every step of the way through closing. I bought a newly-constructed house and she held the sellers accountable for a warranty and delivering the home in perfect condition. She even helped me pick out window coverings. Not only did I get great results, I enjoyed working with her and she made the process fun. Thanks Karen!  Mike Lipfert, April, 2016


Our experience working with Karen Valdez on the sale of our home has been extraordinary. Karen was very well-prepared regarding where to set the sales price, prior to meeting with us to discuss listing our home. Her knowledge of the area, insight on presentation and marketing tools, including the photo work and the virtual tour had our home in front of the right audience very quickly.   All of Karen’s up front work led to a quick contract and a deal that was a good one for both parties. Working through the closing preparation items after the deal was made has been equally as diligent on her behalf.

We would highly recommend Karen Valdez to represent you.

Our Agent was absolutely wonderful, we LOVED working with Karen.  We cannot say enough positive things about all her efforts on our behalf.  She was incredible at representing us as we live in Texas now, and she did everything for us in Colorado, we could not have asked for more...

When your realtor texts you and asks how your settling into the new house, 10 minutes after you discover that your water heater broke and is leaking water all over your basement, and you can't use the water in the house because you had to cut the water line... Then shows up an hour later with dinner for us and wine for me, you know you have a good one! Thanks so much Karen Valdez. Unbelievably kind and helpful!   Lauren and JJ Simmons, June 6, 2016
