Erin McFarland


Erin McFarland grew up in Minneapolis where the architecture is diverse, the public amenities are abundant and the real estate market is (almost, but totally not) as fun as Colorado’s. That’s why she traded the Great Lakes and public parks for mountains and open space when she moved to Boulder in 2010. Even in her free time, Erin loves doing projects on her 1950s home, so her clients get the benefit of a partner who geeks out on real estate as a career and a personal hobby.

What Drives You?

Building meaningful personal and professional relationships and finding fulfillment by helping those around me. And always try, try, trying again (I’m still trying to remember how to play the piano).

Why Real Estate?

Growing up, my family would divvy up the paper on Sunday mornings, and even as an elementary school kid, I always opted for the real estate section over the cartoons. As an adult, my career started in sustainability, but I quickly realized that I had more interest in the experiential side of residential energy efficiency. Real estate fit the bill and then some.

Why are you at Spaces?

A dear friend/running partner/ambitious woman once told me that it was possible to have a fulfilling career in a fantastic environment that encompassed all of what I enjoy about life and work. She worked at Spaces, and the rest is history.

My Friends would describe me as:

  • Kind
  • Funny
  • Intelligent
  • Competitive
Erin McFarland and the team at Spaces real estate have been an absolute pleasure to work with. I can’t imagine an agent that is more trust worthy and accommodating. We simultaneously sold and purchased a house and Erin made the process easy and manageable. She went far above and beyond our expectations and took the time to understand our needs eventually finding us our dream home. Her attention to detail and demeanor throughout the process was very professional and we were confident that we were getting the best service possible from our agent. Even after the purchase, Erin continued to help us by finding plumbers and other contractors to do work on the home. I would highly recommend Erin McFarland to anyone looking for a diligent, caring and trustworthy agent to buy or sell their home. Alexis A.
