April DeNio - Broker/Owner

You loathe typical real estate agent bios. Don’t worry, I do too. They’re like cardboard -- stiff, bland, and identical to every other bio out there. Instead of boasting about awards and accomplishments you’re not interested in, I’m taking the novel approach of actually giving you what you want -- real answers to questions you’re probably wondering right now.

Will you return my calls and emails? Yes. Without question. I realize this is one of the major frustrations the general public has with dealing with agents. I get dozens of calls and emails daily, and I work hard to reply as quickly as possible. I don’t always answer my phone since I’m on and off it all day, but I do return calls promptly unless I’m showing property. 

Who are you as a person? I'm honest and candid, basically a straight shooter. I take pride in being approachable and friendly. And if you need a quick real estate brain, or a strong dose of honesty, you’re in the right place.

Do you have experience doing exactly what I need? Until you tell me what you need, there is no way of knowing. These are "strong suits" of mine:

  • Relocation (was a a military wife for 20 years so I understand moving).
  • Love, love, love listings. I'm very creative at marketing and do a great job for my Sellers. 
  • Love educating on our area so I'm great with Buyers. I also give a killer local tour.
  • Great negotiator (I’m a CNE, Certified Negotiation Expert).
  • I've built spec homes to sell and have done fix 'n flips so I understand investing.
  • Awesome attention to detail.
  • Good listener (a lost art these days). 
  • I put your needs above my own. 

If your goal or situation isn't represented on that list, don't worry. Contact me anyway. If I can't help, I can get you referred to another agent who can.

Who are you as a person? I enjoy singing and playing the guitar. I play the flute. I love reading (mostly self help books). I am a horseman. I like playing sports. I've been married since 1984 to my high school sweetheart and have three children.

What do your clients think of you? My clients are better suited to answer this for you. Here are some words they have used to describe me:

  • Professional
  • Top notch

Opportunity abounds in this rare parcel of Teller county land. As you pull into the flat and easily accessible driveway you will notice that this is easier to get to than many other mountain properties. No steep or difficult navigation involved and minutes from all the conveniences of Woodland Park located just up the road from Charis Bible College, Hwy 24 and Hwy 67. A rare find of 6.875 treed acres that adjoin Pike National Forest and has easy access to popular trails for hiking 4 x 4 and dirt bikes. The land has slopes away from the road and has heavy tree cover, beautiful rock formations and aspen groves. Much of the hard work to prep for your build is done, with the driveway in place, the well is in place and includes the pump which was installed last year. Great cell coverage on Verizon network. Electricity is in place and the bulk of the trees have been cleared for your build site. Logs that are milling size have been left intact if you wish to generate your own lumber. There is an old cabin on the property that makes for great tool storage. It has a good roof and a wood stove but isn't recommended for habitability as it does not appear to be structurally sound. There is an outhouse on the property as well. There are incredible views from the top of the property looking straight west, perfect for watching the sun set over the Rocky Mountains. The lot has the survey stakes in place on each corner making it easy to find your place in this forest. If you are interested in building your own mountain home in range for a commute to Colorado Springs, Woodland Park, Divide or Cripple Creek, or you just want to find a haven to escape the busy life you lead in the city, the location of this property will grant your wishes. While there are other homes and cabins in the vicinity, you will find that this land, located at the far end of the development and nearly at the end of the road, will provide you the solitude and privacy that you crave. Don't miss this opportunity.
