On a Personal Level…
I was born and raised in Arvada. I lived most of my adult life on Capitol Hill, Denver. I have recently gone back to my roots and bought the house I grew up in. As a Real Estate Broker, I have had the great opportunity to mentor under my father and mother. Mike and Carol Lackey are highly regarded in the Real Estate community for their professionalism and honesty in business dealings.
I started my Real Estate career at Coldwell Banker learning great marketing tools and building a wonderful sphere of peers and mentors. I saw the benefits of Small Businesses and felt that becoming a small business owner would be the best way to become a staple of our community and benefit our clients!
This amazing company that I am a part of, grew very organically by others seeing the culture that I was building and they wanted to be a part of it. We continue to grow and be more involved in our community.
My proudest accomplishments are my lifetime friendships and the love for my family.
Since Hurricane Katrina in 2005, I became a disaster relief specialist with Red Cross Mile High Chapter. I also work closely with 9 Health Fair and have been a part of Habitat for Humanity.
We are truly blessed to call Colorado home, and I would love the opportunity to help you find your home in the Denver Metro Area and discover why we love it here.

As a real estate broker, I have made a high-level commitment to my real estate education, having been mentored and coached by several of the most highly acclaimed and respected real estate professionals in Colorado. I am a second generation Realtor, a native to Colorado, born and raised in Arvada. Colorado is my home and I take helping you find your home here very seriously. I have an advantage in the real estate industry being raised in a real estate family and take pride in my work. I strive to embody integrity, positive energy, hard work, and creative service in every detail of your real estate transaction.
In my free time, I enjoy helping others. I spend a significant amount of my down time with charities helping less fortunate families in our community. I also work closely with local dog rescues whether it’s fostering pups before adoption or helping at adoption events. Another way I like to help is supporting local businesses by hosting networking events, shopping local or even a quick share on social media. It is important to me to wake up with a clear mission to help and serve my community either through charities or helping you build your real estate wealth and making your house your home.
