Andre DeBakker  is a graduate of the Colorado School of Mines (BSc Geophysical Engineering), Colorado Realtor, managing real estate broker, and real estate agent.  After working for 15 years in the oil and gas industry as an engineer, Andre moved to Winter Park, Colorado and began his real estate career in earnest.  At the time of his move, Andre had already accumulated a broad real estate investment portfolio and an investment history including vacant land, acreage, condominiums, homes, commercial land, and improved commercial real estate.  By forming “Premier Resort Properties of Winter Park”, he was able to concentrate on his investment projects as well as bring on additional agents who could focus on general real estate sales.

Over the past twelve years since Andre made his move into fulltime real estate investment and sales, the Winter Park real estate landscape has changed dramatically.  Independent real estate companies have found it more difficult to compete with the larger firms and franchises in general real estate sales.

In 2011, Andre joined Keller Williams Front Range Properties.  This exciting step brought franchise recognition along with the experience and knowledge of over 100 agents on the Front Range.  Along with real estate agent and builder Margie Hockstad of Boulder, Andre formed Premier Colorado Realty Group Keller Williams and opened a new satellite office in Winter Park. 

In 2013, Andre and Margie launched Realty Ventures Colorado.  With their combined skill sets and experience, Realty Ventures intends to expand into other markets lending their expertise to home, condo, and land buyers and sellers.  This valuable information will help their clients reach their investment goals and personal goals.  Contact us and find out more about Realty Ventures!


Margie Hockstad  has built a real estate business on providing exceptional service and a caring attitude. Taking the time to determine buyers' needs is the key to finding the best home for her buyers. Whether it be a local move, relocation or international purchase, your home purchase will be a pleasant experience. Dedication to her clients, attention to detail and ability to negotiate are the attributes that set her apart.  She works individually with each seller to prepare and stage your home and then utilizes innovative marketing strategies to create maximum market exposure.

Having lived in Boulder County for 25 years, Margie’s knowledge of the area enhances her expertise in the Boulder County real estate market to provide you with the information you need to successfully sell or purchase a home with ease.

Margie works directly with each client - both buyers and sellers. One of the biggest complaints about working with real estate agent is lack of communication - not so with Margie. While general office duties, marketing and transaction coordination may be handled by assistants, you will be in direct communication with Margie. You can be confident that you and your referrals will always receive FIRST CLASS service and care!
