Selling Homes, Fulfilling Dreams
Hi, I’m Bernadette Melton. I was born and raised in Indiana, and it really is true, I got here as soon as I could! I first visited Colorado in high school and knew this was where I wanted to live - the mountains, the outdoors, the sunshine - all of it!
I graduated from Purdue University in 2004 with degrees in animal science and veterinary medicine and relocated to Colorado with my husband right after our wedding. I worked in Denver for 3 years as a small animal Veterinarian until we had our first son and then chose to stay home to raise him and our two other children.
My family lived in northeastern Westminster for 9 years and moved to Erie over 6 years ago. I have three children in school - Ethan loves robotics, Chloe is getting into competitive gymnastics, and Isaac hasn’t quite figured out what he likes yet, beyond video games of course! We love living in Colorado - hiking, skiing, camping, fishing - though I “fish” by sitting on the bank reading a book. :)
I’ve been working in real estate for almost four years. I love helping find the right home for homebuyers, that “this is it!” look is priceless! And I love helping sellers close the door on one chapter of their lives as they (literally) open the door on the next one. Real estate is challenging, always different, and provides a unique opportunity to share in the lives of the people I work with.
People have asked me if I miss being a Vet, and the answer is not really. Once I left practicing medicine I discovered it wasn't the animals that I missed, it was the people - both the people I worked with and the clients I served. I loved being able to explain medical issues in a way that people could understand, now I get to do the same thing with contracts and real estate transactions. Buying and selling a home can be a very emotional process, just like working with sick animals, and I'm glad I've been able to walk with families through both.
My passion is to guide people on their real estate journey. This journey isn't mine to take, but it's my privilege to help guide the people I work with along the path to reaching their goals. Whether it's finding the dream home they've always wanted, downsizing after the kids have left so they can travel more or negotiate their home more easily, or increasing wealth through building a real estate portfolio, there's always a new path to be traveled and new decisions to be made along the way!
Currently serving: Lafayette, Boulder, Longmont, Broomfield, Louisville, Frederick, Thornton, Dacono, Westminster and surrounding areas with a specialized focus on Erie
What My Clients Have to Say
“ When others drop the ball, Bernadette keeps the process moving along. She is persistant, thorough, and you can count on her to get the job done. She bends over backwards to accomodate your needs and is a pleasure to work with. She has helped our family buy three properties and sell one. She sold our house within the first few days. We had multiple offers and got more than we were asking! We would not use anyone else. ”
--- Joella W.
“ Bernadette was extremely helpful in helping us navigating the sell of our home, during the peak of a global health pandemic. She was patient, kind, and very responsive to our questions. Bernadette was able to help us prepare our home for listing, and walked us through each step of the sell process. I highly recommend her services to anyone looking for a highly qualified professional in the field of real estate! ”

“ Bernadette made every part of buying and selling easier. She is very knowledgeable and can explain anything you don't understand. She helped us stick to a timeline to ensure we completed each step in a timely manner. Bernadette also had recommendations of wonderful professionals to fix anything on our old house. We have been recommending Bernadette to several people we know. She is amazing! ”
--- Dori L.
“ Bernadette took the stress out of buying our first "fixer upper". She had our best interest at heart and made sure we understood what we were signing up for. She was professional, efficient, and always ahead of the game. Bernadette went above and beyond by driving two and a half hours from home to show us properties and a third time in winter weather for the closing. She went out of her way to make our experience as seamless as possible and we can't wait to work with her again for future purchases! ”
--- Joella W.
“ My experience with you was exceptional. Not only did some exceptional situations come up that you/we had to handle but you handled them exceptionally. This was my first time selling a home and you made it not only easy but you were fantastic at explaining and laying everything out for me. During a very busy time in my life I was able to sell my home in a timely manner thanks to you and your team at Co Listing. I would and will highly recommend you to anyone in need of your services buying or selling a home. Thank you for all that you and your family did during this time. ”
--- Brandi H.
“ Bernadette doesn’t sell houses but finds homes for families. Whether your buying, selling or both, she takes the time and energy to find the right fit for her clients. Evaluating their situations, needs as well as their dreams she manages to put things into perspective and then works hard to help them become realities. And when the unexpected comes up which it always does, she has the foresight and skill to help smooth them out. She’s a true gem in the realty business and we have already recommended her to family and friends. ”
--- Mary Ann M.
“ Bernadette did a great job assisting us with exactly what we were trying to find! We were very specific with what we wanted and thought it might be a year or two before something was found. Bernadette found exactly what we wanted in 3 months! She’s awesome, pleasant, responsive, and attentive. Thank you Bernadette. ”

“ I would recommend Bernadette Melton as a worthy real estate agent for several reasons. If one has questions regarding the value of one's house, she will be honest with her answer. She will not give a figure that sounds too good to be true just to get a listing. As one's agent she will keep you informed regarding the progress of the sale or purchase of your home. Her priority is to do the very best job possible for her client. ”
