About Nola Chow

About Me:

I have been a REALTOR® in the Boulder/Denver area since 2005, and am passionate about working with people to achieve their real estate goals.

I’m a native of San Francisco, California, graduated from the University of California, Berkeley, and hold a master’s degree in natural resources. Initially, I worked as a field biologist, and later a conservation policy writer. Soon after moving to Colorado, I began my career as a REALTOR® while carrying on the same values of resource conservation through support of smart, sustainable development.

My professional designations include Certified Residential Specialist and Green certification, through the National Association of REALTORS®. The Certified Residential Specialist is awarded to experienced residential REALTORS® with years in the business and only after a review of their career and transactions. The Green designation demonstrates my knowledge of current sustainable building practices.

As an avid hiker, Nordic skier, backpacker, mountain biker, road cyclist, and foodie, I love living here in sunny Colorado, where the people are warm and friendly, amazing restaurants abound, and incredible outdoor adventures are just beyond our doorsteps. Let me share with you my expertise and enthusiasm and help you realize your real estate goals.

My approach to real estate:

Professional Friend. I have been working with buyers and sellers throughout my real estate career and believe my success comes from my love of working with clients, expertly guiding them through transactions, and building relationships with them. As a market expert and contract negotiator, I commit to give my clients the best information and am their number one advocate in a transaction, which puts my clients in the best position to make important housing decisions. I am there to listen to the needs of my clients, comfort them when the going gets tough, and persist until their goals are met. Clients refer me to their friends because I provide great service and peace of mind. Wouldn’t you want that?

Also, as a Green REALTOR®, I am keenly interested and knowledgeable about redevelopment, net-zero, Passivhaus, and other efficient design and construction techniques. Let me share with you my expertise and enthusiasm and help you realize your real estate goals.

  • "Working with Nola was the best part of our buying experience. She started out as just our agent, but soon we found ourselves enjoying dinner with her and becoming great friends along the way. My wife, daughter, and I were fresh from the Midwest and Nola was patient with us while we came to terms with cost of housing in Boulder. Nola was quick to respond to our needs and even on short notice. She was great to have in our corner to negotiate the best price while not jeopardizing us to lose the property. Nola is someone you will enjoy working with and you will be thankful you chose her to represent you with your buy/sell needs."
    Nate Lindamood

  • "Nola was great to work with...she was on top of the dates and deadlines and particularly helpful at a critical junction during the negotiation process. throughout a stressful process, I was pleased to work with Nola and will happily recommend her to anyone in need of a real estate agent!"
    Mary P

  • "We were actually not referred to PorchLight, but met Nola at an open house. As we found her intelligent, pleasant and honest, we decided that we should trust her with finding us a house. And that's exactly what she did. She managed to find us the house we wanted, where we wanted it, and at a price we were comfortable within a market that does not favor buyers. She is knowledgeable about the market, the process, and she was always available when we needed advice. She always presented homes that were in line with our specs and we never felt the pressure to buy. We highly recommend her services. Thank you for all your help in buying our first home, we are very happy with both the house and PorchLight/Nola!"

  • "We came to Nola in search of buying a new build in Colorado while we lived in California. Over almost a year span, Nola proved to us that she was the best we could have chosen to help us make the move. Nola was excellent at communication, execution, organization, and guiding us to finding the perfect home. She knew what questions to ask, how to make us feel comfortable, and kept us smiling along the way. I would recommend her to anyone searching for a home, and am so grateful she helped us in this journey."

  • "Nola was wonderful every step of the way. We had no idea where to start when my uncle passed away and left a house that needed to go through the probate process and then needed to be sold! Nola was compassionate and knowledgeable through the entire process. This was a long distance situation but that didn’t stop Nola from being the professional that she is."

  • "Working with Nola was such a positive experience. Knowing we were first time home buyers, she was extremely helpful in educating us through the entire process and making sure that we didn't just buy a home, but the home that was an awesome fit for us. We were very selective with our price point, location, and type of home we were looking for, but her diligence and perseverance paid off in finding exactly what we were looking for. After our offer was accepted, she was essential in helping us expedite the closing as quickly and efficiently as possible. I highly recommend Nola and will definitely work with her again."
