"We wanted to thank you for helping us find our new home! We absolutely love it and are so grateful for your positive and energetic advice and expertise." - Adam


Originally from Providence, Rhode Island, I attended Northeastern University in Boston before moving to Colorado in 1983. I happily reside in Boulder between the Mapleton and Newlands neighborhoods, a location which offers both peaceful, tree-lined streets and is a short stroll to eventful downtown Pearl Street and Mt Sanitas. It has been a privilege to raise my three children here, and though they are all now grown or in college, I stay up-to-date on all the school information. 

I have been a licensed Realtor since 1996, and am very experienced in re-sales, new home sales, finding your perfect new home, and discovering investment properties. I own several rental properties, and I just love the investment side of real estate. 

Previously, while working at RE/MAX, I was inducted into the RE/MAX International Hall of Fame, the Platinum Club, and the 100% Club. I’m pleased to have found my home at 8z Real Estate, where I lead a team (not your traditional team, we all work individually) and have received several awards, including earning Club 10 - for the highest performers - every year. Many of my clientele are repeat buyers and sellers or originate from past client referrals. This is a true reflection of how I conduct my business: with my clients’ best interests at heart. 

Prior to my career in real estate, I worked in the restaurant industry, and the philosophy of genuine hospitality and putting my clients first became my guiding light. I advise my clients like I would my family: with integrity, professionalism and true expertise. I love the industry and will happily talk real estate to everyone and anyone - please pick my brain!

In my spare time, I enjoy hiking with my dogs, playing tennis, skiing or dining at all the amazing Boulder restaurants. I love experiencing all that our city has to offer.

Marcia went way above the call of duty to ensure our sale went through. We had a tricky sale since the property had a lease tied to it. Marcia stood the course through that and other challenges. I was impressed by her patience and calm demeanor. Thank you Marcia!

What can I say? I've bought and sold through her and the level of service, knowledge, advice, being either the seller or buyer advocate, emotional IQ to know just how to serve me, she's set a standard I don't ever expect another realtor to match. And she's funny.

I can't imagine a better realtor than Marcia Cotlar. Not only does she know the Boulder market like the back of her hand, but she works incredibly hard to help her clients achieve their goals. Marcia is by far the best realtor with whom we have ever worked!
