Irene Shaffer Realtor®

To this day, Irene Shaffer remembers the moment in 1970 when she came over Davidson Mesa on US 36 and saw Boulder, Colorado for the first time. It was a beautiful city snuggled up against a geologic formation referred to by the natives as "the Flatirons." She was born and raised in Wyoming and had just graduated from the University of Wyoming with a degree in Special and Elementary Education with a minor in Psychology. She was looking for a job and a community to live in.

A funny thing happened once Irene arrived. She was overwhelmed by the beauty of Boulder's landscape and the active lifestyle of the area. Before she knew it Chief Niwot's curse had taken over. Chief Niwot was an Arapahoe Indian Chief who was friendly to the settlers. His curse indicates that once you have lived in this area you will never be happy living anywhere else.

Irene had discovered a new way of life, and it was clear that this university town with its picturesque setting and active lifestyle was where Irene wanted to call home. She and her husband, Andy, raised two daughters here. Kelly and Heather are graduates of the Boulder Valley School District.

Irene's genuine passion for Boulder, Colorado and the surrounding communities is just as strong today as when she first arrived over 38 years ago. "We have a truly special lifestyle here, we are so lucky to be able to live the dream many people can only imagine. Where else can you go for a mountain hike before breakfast, or go for a bike ride after work or cross-country ski in a city park. There may be other places where it is possible, but in Boulder it is part of the culture."

When you love what you do, it shows. If you find yourself relocating to Boulder County, e-mail or call Irene for your "VIP" tour of the area.
