Local Real Estate: Lise Friis Realtor LLCFree Access


Lise Friisbaastad brings over 20 years experience to her mountain Realtor® business. Initially with buying, selling, investing, rehabbing, flipping, and managing homes both long-term and short term, she earned her license in real estate to help her mountain neighbors and to be able to work where she lives.

She is confident to be able to help with any Real Estate needs and can refer quality specialists in lending, home repairs, remodeling, and many more! During the running of this business, she was inspired to become a licensed Realtor®. Friisbaastad has been serving clients in the sales & purchases of homes ever since. √ loves her role as full-time Realtor® helping her Colorado mountain neighbors (especially) with any real estate questions, needs, and transactions.

Friisbaastad specializes in the mountain communities of Gilpin, Boulder, and Jefferson Counties. In addition, she can list homes anywhere in Colorado and provide agent referrals to known contacts throughout the U.S. Recently she has provided and accepted referrals from clients in Washington, California, and Arizona.

Her license is held with a brokerage in Arvada, JPAR Modern Real Estate, and she works with the owners and other agents to make certain every step of the transaction is handled with precision.

Friisbaastad meets personally (or remotely if preferred during Covid) with potential clients to determine if they are a good fit for working together. She feels that the initial meeting is crucial to a great transaction. She believes great communication is essential and will keep her clients informed with every step. Her mottos are “Professionally Representing YOU!” and “Own a Slice of Paradise!”

Friisbaastad says, “I take my position as a Real Estate Agent and professional Realtor very seriously and will do everything in my power to personally and professionally represent you as the Seller or Buyer of a real estate property. Listing extensively on multiple channels/ platforms including the MLS, Facebook, Instagram, and many others with aggressive advertising campaigns. In addition, expert/high quality professional photography is included with EVERY listing.”

By far, what she enjoys most is meeting the clients and helping them through the entire process through closing. She is always seeking the best answers and solutions for each situation. In addition, she coaches residents of mountain communities on real estate needs and assists with quality home-service provider referrals – those she knows are reliable and provide great service! Consultations are always free!

Her background includes music educator and performer for over 20 years and developing a real estate background while working in music. She also spent one summer as a Rocky Mountain National Park Ranger, and also worked as a medical laboratory technician after graduating with her first bachelor degree in Biology. She also performs in local Colorado groups as flutist/singer. Answering the call of the mountains, she spends her free time hiking, snowshoeing, skiing, doing yoga/gym workouts, and community activities including entertaining in their mountain home with husband Dean and their pup, Cody.
