Renee O'Lear

"Renee was a pleasure to work with because she was so professional, careful, and detailed in everything she did." - Linda S.

In addition to being an 8z Realtor, I am a wife and mother of four spectacular children and one Australian Shepherd. Interestingly, we also have several other children out in the world that we have hosted through international exchange, a cause that my entire family is very passionate about.

Since moving to Colorado from Texas in 2008, we have lived in Longmont, Superior, and Louisville before settling in Broomfield. We love Colorado intensely and proudly call it our forever home. As a non-Native, I feel very lucky to have settled in such an amazing and beautiful state. My children have attended various schools in Boulder Valley School District, so I am very familiar with the local communities and schools. One of the great things about Broomfield is that although there are several different school districts represented, all schools within Broomfield city limits are fantastic – you just can’t lose living in Broomfield! Broomfield is also hard at work developing a new Civic Center, which is expected to resemble a “downtown” in a park-like setting where residents can congregate for both business and leisure (click HERE for more information).

I wasn’t always in real estate! It may surprise you to learn that I have a very strong background in the life science industry and have worked previously as a scientific researcher, a high school science teacher, a technical support scientist, and a scientific marketer & entrepreneur. Throughout my extensive career, I have acquired many skills in client support, sales & marketing, as well as business contract preparation & negotiation – all of which have served me well in the real estate industry! I am very passionate about real estate and pride myself as a local market expert. I truly love helping people buy and sell homes, and I am always excited to see new homes listed in my clients’ desired area. It is often a huge life transition to purchase or sell a home, and I am very honored to take part in your process. I will always put my clients’ needs first to help them reach their personal goals. I joined 8z because my personal business values aligned so well with theirs, and together we strive to maintain the highest level of integrity and transparency for our clients.

Although I am familiar with all areas of Broomfield and other surrounding cities, I specialize in my local neighborhoods of Broomfield’s west side: Broomfield Heights, Lac Amora, Miramonte, Broomfield Country Club, Ridgeview Heights, Northmoor, and Highland Park South.

I really enjoyed working with Renee. She always paid close attention to the new homes being listed so that she could get us in to see them right away. The market was crazy with multiple offers being made on every home out there, so it was very stressful as a buyer to try and find a nice home. Renee was very persistent and always knew how to help us make the best offer under different circumstances. I always felt like she was very competent and knowledgeable. She is a very good real estate agent to have on your side.

Renee was so helpful to us when we needed a professional opinion about how to update our home for future selling purposes. We hadn't had much luck getting other agents to give us the advice we were looking for, so Renee was a breath of fresh air!

Our experience with Renee was top notch! This wasn't our first home purchase, and we were very impressed with how professional Renee was and how willing she was to go the extra mile! Highly recommend!
