Kelli Hernandez


I am a Denver transplant from Alabama since 1999 and have over 17 years of broad based experience in real estate and financial services industries. I have direct experience with many critical aspects of complex industries. Currently I am a real estate agent, but was also a financial consultant, trader, relationship manager, operations principal and chief compliance officer. I have an excellent learning agility for business cultures and can quickly adapt between roles and levels to ensure successes that advance business goals and increase revenue. There is nothing more that annoys me than a bad broker who costs their clients time, money and mental well being. Crossing all the t’s and dotting all the i’s is just as important as negotiating the deal.

My family dynamic consists of a great husband for 8+ years and two awesome children age 5 and 8. Also, I sit on the Board of Trustees for the Rocky Mountain Leukemia and Lymphoma Society (I am a survivor of non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma) and I love Alabama Football and the Denver Broncos! Roll Tide Roll and Go Broncos!!!

Chip Crahan

Broker Associate

Real estate for me was something I observed from a distance since childhood. Watching my uncle work through some of the grit of flipping a house is where that started. He then went on on to develop and own several residential and commercial properties…on the side. Another uncle sold for a developer and he pointed me towards the Urban Land Institute. With all the ULI has to offer I was gaining professional caliber, industry-specific information. My interests were taken a step further when I went to work for a finish carpenter and a house flipper. That escalated into my unrelenting pursuit of finding a property I could renovate from wall-to-wall.

I found the perfect house and went to work. My childhood best friend was an enormous help and I could not have finished out some of the more dramatic features without him. We gutted the property and redesigned the inside to include features like vaulted ceilings, an exposed cedar beam and a livable loft space above the kitchen.

Once listed, the property went under contract in two days and closed as scheduled. It was then I knew I wanted to take real estate to the next level by getting my real estate license and use my experience in wall-to-wall residential construction to represent my clients for a WIN-WIN situation. We have flipped several more homes while improving on things every single time!
