Detail Obsessed, A Great Person Claire is simply wonderful.

Smart as a whip and detail obsessed. Plus she is just a great person, cares, and I do mean cares, about both parties. Wish I could just call her for everything.

Spent The Entire Weekend With Us, Educated Us About the Area We contacted Claire regarding property in the Preserve @ Pine Meadows.

Claire and Bud (Husband/Builder) spent an entire weekend with us looking at property they owned but also multiple properties listed thru private owners. They educated us about the area, the pro’s/con’s of each piece of property for building and introduced us to several people we have become personal friends with. Claire and Bud are sincere and truly want to find you the best fit property for you. We enjoyed working with them so much they are now personal friends.


Has Sold About 20 Of My Properties Claire has sold about 20 of my properties over the last decade.

She is great at marketing homes and property in the foothills of Denver. I recommend her highly.


Well Connected With Quality Service Without a doubt, Claire and her husband, Bud, are simply the BEST realtors!

Everything we needed and more! They worked with us for nearly a year to find the right mix of qualities in our home. From many years of buying, selling and building in the foothills, they are well aware of important nuances that other realtors likely don’t know and they offered honest, unblemished information to help with our decisions. They are well connected and could get us in touch with local contractors in a timely manner. We felt like Claire and Bud gave us the same quality service that they would want for themselves and anticipated questions we might have. We don’t plan to sell any time soon, but when we do, we know exactly who we will call!


Went Above And Beyond In Everything, Always Available To Us Thanks to Claire Moore, we could not have had a better experience buying our home.

Claire took the time to show us a variety of homes with our wishes in mind. Her extensive knowledge of Colorado real estate, home building, and communities helped us to make the best decision for us. In addition, her consistently patient and friendly attitude made working with her a pleasure. She went above-and-beyond in everything she did and was always available to us regardless of what we needed. When you work with Claire, you are working with the best!!


Responsive And Works To Match The Client With The Right Property I have been Claire’s client on multiple home and land purchases and sales.

She is responsive and works to match the client with the right property. She follows up with both the client and other brokers to help the transaction occur on time and as planned. Her clients appreciate her both during and after the transaction is complete.


As A Broker Myself, I Hold Other Brokers To A Higher Standard, Claire Surpassed Even That.

It’s hard to put into words just how instrumental Claire Moore has been in helping us to fit into our new neighborhood even though she represented the seller when we purchased our home in Pine Meadows in 2012. By including us in a neighborhood party being held in our soon-to-be new home, we were able to meet the wonderful neighbors even before moving in. It was clear to us how much they cared about Claire and Bud and what a deep friendship they had formed with all these neighbors who had started out as clients. Claire and Bud have always been there to answer any questions we might have about this beautiful home that they built. The quality of the materials used in the home is outstanding and the construction superb. This is the most comfortable home we have ever owned. Claire’s professionalism and attention to detail made our purchase go very smoothly. As a broker myself, I hold other brokers to a higher standard and Claire surpassed even that. She has continued to be a great friend and resource and my husband and I look forward to many more years of friendship with her and Bud. We recommend American Craftsman as a builder every chance we get and I continue to refer anyone interested in a lot in Pine Meadows or Brauch Ranch to Claire because I know that she will give them outstanding service! Claire’s knowledge of mountain real estate is essential for any purchase or sale of real estate in this area. There are so many potential pitfalls that may be unknown to agents “down the hill” and Claire’s experience makes her uniquely suited to handle these complex transactions. I highly recommend Bud and Claire Moore as builders and Claire to handle any real estate needs!

Provided Local Referrals, Helpful Given This Area Is New To Me Claire has been absolutely wonderful to work with!

She found me an absolute gem of a cabin (which wasn’t even listed at the time) in the mountains. She is responsive and listens well to needs/desires of her clients. She’s patient and works hard to stay on top of all the paperwork involved with the sale/purchase of homes. Her reminders to sign, coordinate, transfer, review and schedule the necessary paperwork, inspections, utilities, titles, etc. were much appreciated as there are so many dates to keep track of when purchasing a home. She provided me local referrals for insurance, inspections, locksmiths, water quality testing, etc which was quite helpful given this area is new to me–all of which have been fabulous to work with! Her integrity, knowledge and respect for her clients and the real estate business is outstanding. I highly recommend working with Claire for all your real estate needs in the Denver front range!


As I began looking for just the right spot to settle down, K.

C. listened carefully to my particular needs as well as the limitations to be considered in my home purchase. We spent months narrowing the field and exploring the towns along the range. He always brought his considerable knowledge and wisdom about home buying - he spent hours as we drove around the mountains of Colorado, explaining how the market works and what to pay attention to so I could make my savings go as far as possible. He and Mountain Realty are SO incredibly thoughtful that even the seller's agent talked about what a 'straight up' outfit they are. K.C. teamed me up with an amazing mortgage brokerage who figured out how I could use my savings to purchase the best home I could find. They are mountain area specialists as well which is essential if you're buying at altitude in the wilderness. You could not do better finding the perfect spot for your needs and dreams than with this team.

We can’t say enough great things about KC Golfinopoulos.

He did an outstanding job working with us, the sellers and an outstanding job with the buyers. We were so impressed with his professionalism, his knowledge of the real estate market and his ability to negotiate. Thank you so much K.C. for a job well done.

Always Quick To Respond To Our Text Messages And Calls Claire provided mountain property purchase / real estate services to my wife and I over a year ago.

I was extremely impressed with her professional knowledge and sincere willingness to provide us with the necessary information to make a decision that was best for us. As busy as Claire was at the time of our mountain property purchase, she always was quick to respond to our text messages and phone calls. What still amazes me is Claire’s continued contact with us and the professional guidance given towards the next steps required to build a house on the property we purchased. I would highly recommend Claire for any type of real estate services required. It was and continues to be a pleasure to work with someone as dedicated and personable as Claire.

You Will Not Find a More Knowledgeable Agent For anyone wanting to buy or sell a property in the Evergreen, Colorado area, Claire should be your go to agent!

Having worked and lived in most of the surrounding towns including property development, you will not find a more knowledgeable agent on the area to work with. Always attentive and willing to view properties for out of town buyers, Claire helped us find and negotiate our future Evergreen home.

Michael Southey

Hardworking, Very Knowledgeable And Available Anytime Claire was very helpful/instrumental in getting us into our new mountain home.

She is hardworking, very knowledgeable and available to help out at any time. We were fortunate to work with her and I would highly recommend her to anyone selling/buying a house.

jackiejohn06, Bailey

Provided Us With The Research Tools To Be Informed Claire Moore was by far the best and most informed realtor that awe have ever worked with.

She provided us with the research tools to be informed about the sales in our area and the knowledge to make the correct decisions. I would highly recommend Claire.


Evergreen Re-Location From Illinois We worked with Claire to find a home in Evergreen as we were relocating from IL.

Claire has been truly great to work with. She has been helpful honest, straightforward, very professional and fun to work with. She truly understands the Evergreen market and was very helpful in our search for a new home. We could not have done it without her.


Already Recommended To Others!

Claire worked very hard to find us the perfect house! We had a great experience and have already recommended her to others! Our neighbor will be giving her a call.


Utterly Outstanding, On Top Of All The Details.

We lucked into finding Claire and her husband Bud on line when looking at land and houses to buy in the mountains west of Denver (they are both developers in addition to her doing real estate). Incredibly knowledgeable about the area, both of them work with Jefferson County Land Board and know in intimate detail issues concerning water rights, land use options, and the market in general. Claire helped us find and negotiate on a mountain home property which we closed on in December 2015, and she was utterly outstanding. She was on top of all the details, answered emails and calls quickly (and often on weekends. .). . Could not have asked for a better or more knowledgeable or responsive realtor. And she and Bud are great people to boot. Finally, Claire has helped us find top notch contractors to renovate the place – just inspected today our refinished hardwood floors by a guy she recommended (Noah) and the work was outstanding and more than reasonable in cost. Claire provided 5-star service and expertise across the board. We couldn’t recommend her more highly.

Particularly Skilled And Experienced With Land Transactions Claire was a highly experienced agent who added great value in our transaction.

She is particularly skilled and experienced with land transactions and their suitability for new-build’s. Her insights, advice and dedication to client satisfaction are top notch.


Honest And Straightforward We found Claire to be very knowledgeable and helpful in our search for a property.

We also found her to be quite honest and straightforward. It was a pleasure to do business with her.


I wanted to take time to recommend KC Golfinopoulos.

KC was our real estate agent and helped us purchase a home in Evergreen. KC was highly responsive and got back to us in a timely manner. He understood the area and the market very well. And when it came time to put a bid in on a house, KC helped us execute a bidding strategy that was ultimately successful with out overpaying. KC also stayed involved to assure a speedy and efficient closing. I would strongly recommend KC to anyone in the future.

Robert Shortt

KC was amazing!

He went above and beyond my expectations! I highly recommend him!

Margaret Mace

Highly Recommend!

Claire found three buyers who paid acceptable prices for parcels long on the market. Each closing had hitches for which she was able to obtain resolutions agreed to by buyer and seller. Highly recommend!

Richard Hart

Professional, Friendly, And Extremely Responsive!

Claire is an outstanding Realtor/Broker! She is professional, friendly, and extremely responsive! She went the extra mile and scheduled inspectors, etc. we couldn’t be happier with all of her assistance with the purchase of our new home!


As Impressed This Time As We Were The First Time We recently used Claire to purchase a second property and were as impressed with her this time as we were the first time.

During the process, we were living out-of-town and we did not actually see the property we purchased in person before we closed escrow. Claire figured out what we wanted/needed in our new home and did an impeccable job steering us away from properties that did not suit us and toward those that did. We ended up with a great new home. She was available and responsive throughout the process and guided us to close of escrow in a highly competent and professional manner. You will not find a better realtor!


KC was wonderful to work with.

Extremely professional and experienced! We will definitely work with K.C. again. From visiting the property, to final contracts and paperwork, all was handled with great detail. Thank you KC!

Michael Mayo

Very Easy To Work With And Attentive To Our Needs Claire was extremely helpful to us in locating a home in Conifer.

We knew little about the area and she was able to share information that was very useful in our decision. We now have a beautiful home that is just minutes from Conifer and still has the view we dreamed of. Claire is also a great resource in helping us find contractors to do the work we wanted on the house. She was very easy to work with and attentive to our needs throughout the whole process and even after we closed! We would highly recommend Claire to others.


Working with Claire was a wonderful experience.

There are no words for how grateful we are. We decided to sell the house on a whim, very quickly while my husband was in Africa. She made herself available for questions and the process flowed smoothly. With her guidance, what could have been a very stressful experience, was delightful and even fun. Claire was a huge advocate for us when it came to the sale and working with other realtors. We were blessed to have her on our team!

As a young, first time home buyer I appreciated all her help and her willingness to get back to me right away and answer all my questions.

Claire Moore helped my husband and I to buy our first home in the Pine, Colorado area. When we first laid eyes on the home and property that she showed us, we fell in love with it at first sight! We ended up deciding that the very first home we looked at was the one! Claire was always very prompt while working with us, from answering calls to getting back to us right away with e-mail. As a young, first time home buyer I appreciated all her help and her willingness to get back to me right away and answer all my questions. The buying process was pretty smooth for the most part, but there was a point when the buyers wanted to back out of the deal and Claire was able to negotiate the situation so that everybody involved was able to walk away with what they wanted. Claire has a lot of local knowledge of the area, from information about the schools and recreation, to some concerns to be aware of. She is a very honest person and working with her never felt like we were being pressured in any way. In fact, when my husband and I had a major life change and ended up moving to Fort Collins, we considered selling our beloved home in Pine and contacted Claire to work with her again. However, we had a change of heart and could not go through with selling our dream home and Claire was so understanding of our change of heart! (Actually we ended up selling the other house we bought in Fort Collins. We worked with a local agent in Fort Collins and although he was okay he wasn’t Claire! The close was a mess…kind of a nightmare and it never felt like this other agent cared about anything except getting paid.) We ended up returning to our dream home in Pine when things did not work out as planned in Fort Collins and we are so glad we did not sell! It is really our little slice of heaven. I feel like we owe a lot to Claire because she was never pushy when we decided very early on that we actually didn’t want to sell after all, and understands the importance of really loving your home. That being said, my husband and I may end up selling some day, should things change and we would want to work with Claire again. I would also recommend her to anyone who is interested in buying real estate up here. She is the best in the area!

Fern and Scott Baker

KC has become a friend and is a very professional, ethical and knowledgeable realtor.

His responses to every detail were immediate. Some surprises were thrown our way in the buying process due to lack of knowledge from the selling parties. (Not anything on purpose) K.C. handled all of them with grace and we all maintained a good relationship through those details. We bought our home without seeing it before the offer. He personally went to take a video of it and did such a great video tour, we made the offer based on it. Also, he represented the home as it truly was, there were no surprises when we saw it and, if anything, it was better than we expected. He and his connections around the business made our closing smooth and seamless in less than 28 days. Since the close he and his staff have continued to assist us more as friends than as our realtor. Helping us become familiar with local labor, checking on our home until we were able to get there etc. Thank you!

Art and Debbie Wachholz

By Far The Most Qualified, Would Use Claire Again In A Minute!

Claire was a pleasure to work with. We interviewed several brokers to handle the sale of my mother’s home and acreage. Claire was by far the most qualified to sell the home. She knew the property, the market and the buyers pool. Her marketing was strategic, she made sure the house and property showed well and most importantly to us, she went above and beyond taking on tasks that were not a part of a typical real estate sale. We received a full price offer after only 2 days on the market! We very much appreciated all that Claire did for my mother. We would use Claire again in a minute!

T Okoskie, Indian Hills

KC is one of the most impressive business professionals I have ever worked with.

I have worked in med device sales for a decade and have been around some of the best of the best sales people. A few things that have always stood out to me in 5 star sales people is their acumen, “tribal” knowledge, responsiveness, and grit. The best sales people will also challenge your assumptions and help you think of things that maybe you hadn’t. KC embodies these characteristics to his core. I worked with KC buying my first home in Conifer, CO. We closed in October 2022. The closing process was stressful and dramatic as you could imagine. I think we had at least 7 amendments to extend. Very difficult sellers who were emotionally attached to their home and didn’t want to sell (understandably). Everything that could have gone wrong, did. And KC was not only with us every step of the way, he was the captain of the ship and he got us home across the finish line. KC probably put close to 100 hours of his time on this deal. He was always the first to reach out with an update, most days as early as 5 AM. Can’t stress that enough. He is high touch, super responsive, and always proactive. I never had to remind KC of anything, not once. He treats you like you’re the President! KC exemplifies leadership and that is an incredibly important quality when you’re consulting with people who are often making the biggest purchase decision of their lives like I was. I am simply amazed by KC’s grit and willingness to keep going and keep pushing to get a deal done. And his calm resolve during the process. Even when we felt ready to give up. At the end of the day, KC was able to negotiate $10,000 off list price and $50,000 into an escrow holdback from the seller’s proceeds for construction of a new Well for our house in Conifer off Richmond Hill corridor. We wouldn’t even had known about the dry well if it weren’t for him advising us to pick the right mountain specific inspector. We were totally ignorant to the specifics of mountain homes but KC was a good advisor. KC had some great ideas too when writing the contract that really protected our investment. In the 11th hour the lender/title company wanted to pull out of the deal due to the complicated nature of the escrow agreement and KC was able to get a new title company onboard within the same day and we ended up closing on time. I could go on and on about the trials and tribulations. But I share this amount of detail because this is why you hire an agent like KC. Anyone can help you close an easy deal. But when things don’t go to plan, you need someone like KC on your side to help. All of this aside, KC is just an all around great guy and we just really enjoyed working with him. Can’t thank you enough for all of your hard work.

Kept Me Totally Informed During The Transaction I am on the East Coast and Claire kept me totally informed during the transaction and helped my son find a great house within our budget.

Claire also helped us obtain an inspector, insurance and other technical help in order to successfully complete the transaction.


You Will Not Be Dissapointed!

Conscientious, professional manner, ethical, excellent communicator, personable and responsive are adjectives I use to describe Claire. Claire is very knowledgeable and active in the local community. I would highly recommend you do business with her. You will not be disappointed!


If you are looking for a place in the beautiful Colorado Rockies, look no further.

Mountain Realty is not only extremely knowledgeable, and gifted in helping you find exactly what you’re looking for, their team, lead by K.C., the company’s owner, is so down to earth. They really care about who you are and are committed to the mountain area communities’ thriving.

Christine Kahane

Listened To Our Needs and Wishes The great part of our experience in buying a home, was Claire listening to our needs and wishes.

She was genuinely sad when certain deals didn’t work out, and was patient with us to come around to looking again. Ultimately she helped us find a home that was going to be the perfect house for us.

Robyn Shegda

KC is the best!

Professional, extremely knowledgeable of the foothills market, and was so enjoyable to work with. Couldn’t be happier – KC made selling our cabin a positive, stress-free and profitable experience!
