About us

Our Story

Our story started in 1968, when our founder Joel Ripmaster, graduated from the University of Colorado Boulder, where he played football for the Buffaloes and would spend his time hiking from campus to Chautauqua Park with his college sweetheart and later to be wife. The two young Midwestern students would walk and daydream about one day owning a home in Boulder, starting a family and a business, and spending a life here. Joel fell in love with Boulder, his wife, and residential real estate and what it represented to his young family.

In 1977, Joel opened the Colorado Landmark doors for the first time with a clear mission:

  • Provide the most personalized support, flawless guidance and unrivaled knowledge of the real estate market to local and global Boulder County homebuyers and sellers.

Who We Are

Colorado Landmark

This mission is living proof and rings as true today as it did decades ago. While the world changes, the economy and trends change, and the real estate markets change, one thing remains steadfast. People need a trusted advisor, a local expert, a partner in the home buying and selling process.

Today, we are fifty agents strong in three offices located to best serve the growing and expanding needs of our clients. Each member of our team each shares our mission and philosophy and dedicated to serve. Over the years we have modernized our services and tools to incorporate the latest technology, systems and techniques. We have forged global partnerships with worldwide networks like Luxury Portfolio International and Leading Real Estate Companies of the World, and have developed and nurtured life-long relationships with our clients.
