Here at Tributary Real Estate, we’re proud to have a close-knit team of talented professionals whose unique perspectives and specialized expertise not only make them invaluable assets to our team, but to our clients and the broader Denver business community.

In this series, we’ll highlight each employee to learn more about who they are, what they do and how they further Tributary’s mission of leveraging trusted relationships, depth of experience and robust real estate knowledge to provide a customized approach to commercial real estate brokerage and investment services.


What is the most challenging aspect of your job?
The most challenging part of our job is overcoming the stereotype of being perceived as just a commodity. We are trusted advisors that bring a wealth of market knowledge and experience to our clients that ultimately add value to their team and bottom line.  In doing so, the goal is to build long term partnerships in which the clients realize they couldn’t have done it without us.

What is the most rewarding aspect of your job?
I feel most rewarded in my job when I can help companies align their real estate with their business goals and objectives. Being an invaluable resource and trusted advisor throughout the real estate process is a great feeling and a major factor in why I do what I do.

What distinguishes your team from other real estate brokerages?
At Tributary, we are one big family who truly care about each other’s well-being and success. We are great colleagues and friends who support each other in and out of work. For example, did you know that Michael Harpole just ran a marathon in the mountains with a 6,000-foot elevation change? He’s a beast!

What is one of your favorite moments with the Tributary team?
Our Christmas parties and our company ski days are pretty epic. I also really enjoy the charitable work we do as a company and feel fortunate to work with a team that cares about giving back as much as I do.

How do you get involved in the community?
Currently, I serve as a charity golf outing committee member for First Tee of Denver and a baseball coach for Arapahoe Youth League’s Cherry Creek Bruins. I also volunteer regularly at Food Bank of the Rockies. Additionally, my family and I assemble “blessing bags” full of necessities (toothpaste, socks, deodorant, water, etc.) that we deliver to people experiencing homelessness around the city on a regular basis.

What’s Denver’s best kept secret?
Bonfire Burritos in Golden! If you haven’t tried them, you haven’t lived.
