Third Generation Denverite. Established Professional.


Terry Oakes is not only familiar with Denver and the surrounding areas, he was born into a legacy of successful businesses that have helped shape the city of Denver. And Cindy, while not a Denver native, has lived here since college and knows the city and its neighborhoods.

In Terry's previous career, he owned Bolderdash, a high end men's ready-to-wear shop, in Cherry Creek North for over two decades that catered to clientele such as Justin Timberlake and Dave Brubeck. It was through this business that he built his extensive client list, and, when he sold his business and the buildings, the process of the 1031 exchanges sparked his interest in real estate and brought him to his second career path.

Cindy came to real estate from Steelcase, the world's largest office furniture manufacturer. After a career that spanned over three decades working with local and global clients, training sales leaders and mentoring new hires, Cindy wanted a change. She is LEED AP ID+C accredited, giving her extensive knowledge in green building practices and requirements. And she is the ultimate professional: highly ambitious, infinitely organized, brilliantly observant, and totally prepared. She listens, finds the things that are truly meaningful and connects in an authentic way.


Kind words from just a few of our wonderful clients:

You have made our biggest dream come true! We could not be more thankful to know you both personally as well as professionally. Our family is so lucky to have benefitted from your unparalleled real estate knowledge and professionalism which landed us in the perfect weekend retreat at the perfect time. You helped guide us through an extremely well-thought out search and you helped us navigate a slightly harrowing purchase. You were not only realtors but sometimes therapists to calm my nerves, mentors and friends. We love you very, very much.
You two will forever be a part of our family’s story from now on!
— A repeat client, both buyer and seller
Thanks for everything you did to get the place sold. I truly believe it would not have happened if it wasn’t for all your hard work and efforts. We look forward to working with you on the next one.
— A repeat client, both buyer and seller
Thank you very much for helping me through my first home buying experience. I always felt like a valued client and that you had my best interest at heart. Also, I though you brought great insight into the process.
— First time home buyer
