Holly Biggs

After working with the Department of Human Services’ Public Assistance Division for nearly 9 years it was time for a change. I wanted to find a job that would combine my passion for helping others with my interest in real estate. For the last 7 years I’ve worked with real estate investors, matching cash buyers with homeowners who wanted or needed to sell a property quickly. I decided to become a licensed agent so that I could extend my services to retail buyers and sellers in the Northern Colorado area. I see myself as a problem-solver who enjoys the challenge of brokering transactions that satisfy all of the parties involved. I am honest, loyal, diligent and creative in finding solutions and alternatives for any scenario.
I have lived in Loveland for the last 24 years and I am passionate about this community. My volunteer activities include Duncan’s Place, a cat sanctuary; Loveland Youth Gardeners; and the Loveland branch of the Food Bank for Larimer County. I have one grown daughter and three cats, Poodle, Baybee and Mooshie and all are my pride and joy. My hobbies include reading, volunteering, yoga, social media, and participating in local 5k races. I look forward to meeting you and becoming not only your real estate agent but your friend.
