For 12 years after college Bill worked in the Lubbock, Texas real estate industry. In 1974 Bill returned to Colorado to manager Sussex Realty in Boulder. A short time later, Bill founded Goodacre & Company.
Bill, with his son Tim Goodacre have fulfilled their goal of growing Goodacre & Company into a competitive real estate business that operates from their new Worldwide Headquarters location at 2450 Broadway in Boulder, Colorado.
In Bill’s 40 years of Boulder County real estate sales he has listed, sold and memorized almost every property in Boulder. Bill is respected by his clients and colleagues and considered a valuable source for real estate information. He is well known throughout the Colorado Front Range as an honest, generous, family oriented man who gets the job done!

Tim was born in Lubbock Texas, and was thrilled to move to Boulder at the age of 11. It was then that Tim entered the world of real estate doing odds and end jobs for his father, Bill Goodacre, Owner and Founder of Goodacre & Company Real Estate. These early experiences in the business stuck with Tim and he went on to attended Southern Methodist University where he received a degree in Business/Real Estate in 1985. Tim went to work for Daum Commercial Real Estate in Phoenix for 5 years before he returned to Boulder to partner with his father Bill Goodacre. Since that time he and his dad have created Boulder’s most successful & prestigious real estate firm. Several franchise opportunities have been presented to Bill and Tim over the years but the idea to remain a small, personal and powerful, family owned company has always been more appealing.
Individually, Tim has sold over $125 million dollars of Real Estate in the last 5 years. Tim’s strong networking ability often times allows him to sell property before it even hits the market. He is committed to giving the highest level of personalized service and dedicated to defining the individual needs of each client. He’s accustomed to an honest, friendly and easygoing style of business and it’s this philosophy that has earned him the reputation of being one of the best in the real estate industry.
Tim, wife, Denise and 2 kids, Isabelle, 15 and Joe, 13 are very active and spend lots of time outside skiing, mountain biking and rock climbing. Tim continues to play hockey every week but still has a hard time keeping up with his Dad.
Personalized Service, Professional Results
My personal experiences from living in the Boulder area for over 35 years have me thoroughly convinced that this is one of the greatest areas of the country in which to live. In the period of those 35 some years, I’ve experienced many wonderful aspects of life in this area with my family, which now consists of my wife of 30 years and our two grown sons.
After a highly successful upper management career of over 20 years in the hi-tech manufacturing arena, in 2001 I entered the fascinating profession of helping clients buy, sell, and develop real estate in the Boulder Area. My previous career’s responsibilities focused primarily on organization, problem solving, and high level negotiations, all skills that have proven invaluable in my real estate career.
In 2010 I became Managing Broker at Goodacre & Co., which offers me the opportunity to learn even more about our industry, as well as to share my experience throughout our great team of broker associates.
My primary goal in working with folks in my capacity as a Realtor, is to help to make an enjoyable experience out of the process of either buying or selling their home, and to remove as much of the burden of the process from my clients as possible. My pledge is to approach every transaction with the same care as if I were buying or selling my own home. I take this approach so that I can be comfortable that I have done the best job that I know how in helping folks with one of the most important financial, and personal, decisions that they may ever make.
In 1980, I left the travel business, entered the real estate industry, took out a third mortgage on my home and co-founded Meridian Properties Inc. As a good friend said ‘ there is no greater motivator than fear!’. Over the years, Meridian emerged as Boulder’s leading high end residential real estate boutique, owned, managed and run by women. The company’s success was due to its focus upon providing clients with its hallmark : valued advice over 35 years of outstanding service.
In 2008,enticed by an offer no one could refuse, I merged Meridian with Goodacre and Company, owned by my good friends and competitors, Tim and Bill Goodacre. Today the combined firms enjoy a commanding share of Boulder’s upper end real estate market. I continue my focus on Boulder’s finer residences and luxury properties. The clients I serve demand the highest and best.
Integrity : Knowledge of the market: Valuation skills: Attention to detail and Creative Web Based Marketing Expertise
My clients gain access to my extensive knowledge of Boulder’s real estate infrastructure, including leading real estate attorneys, appraisers, inspectors, title companies and tradesman. As Boulder’s international reputation has grown, so has the character of my practice, including successful transactions for discerning clients from throughout the continental US, Alaska. Australia, England, France, Switzerland, Africa, Scotland and Hong Kong. The interests of my clients are paramount and my commitment to their success is unwavering.
I owe a large part of my professional success to my passion for the Boulder area. Having lived here for nearly 20 years, there is no better advisor to educate you on the lifestyle, neighborhoods and ins-and-outs of this one-of-a-kind city.
As a former professional tri-athlete and cyclist as well as an avid skier, I am familiar with all the things that make Boulder special to outdoor enthusiasts. As a longtime resident and graduate of the University of Colorado at Boulder, I have also become well integrated within the Boulder community.
My civic alliances include long standing friendships with local business owners, membership in the local Rotary Club and philanthropic support for the Humane Society of Boulder Valley along with Boulder Pride.
I have also owned, renovated and built new homes in the Boulder area as well as beach front homes in Florida, and understand the impact and enormity of these kinds of investments.
Simply put, I am able to be more than a real estate agent for my clients. I am an experienced guide to the Boulder community.

Moving to Boulder from Chicago in the early 80’s was a brilliant and no regrets decision. Boulder is most remarkable part of the world and I feel delighted daily to be a part of this exciting community.
My degree in social work from the University of Chicago offered me a wonderful early career as a medical social worker at St. Joseph’s Hospital in Denver. The skills of negotiating, counseling, problem solving and advocacy translated quite well to my success in a second career as a Boulder realtor.
I can honestly say that helping people buy and sell their homes is a most gratifying pursuit. There is great fun and satisfaction in successfully moving people through the challenges of real estate changes. Many of my clients have become friends and I greatly value a business built on relationships and community.

I moved to Colorado from Pennsylvania in 1983 to attend the University of Colorado in Boulder. In 1990, I married my husband, Tom and we bought our first home together that same year. I knew as soon as I started the looking process that real estate was the career for me. Six months later I had my license (as well as my GRI designation) and was busy selling real estate. Over the past 20 years I have raised 3 beautiful girls and helped hundreds of people buy and sell their homes all over the county. When working with you as a Buyer my philosophy is to take the time that is needed to make sure the house does more than meet your physical list of requirements; I want it to be the house that feels right, the house that will be your home. When working with you as a Seller, I am meticulous and thorough and I put in the extra effort that is needed in today’s market to get your home sold. Buying and selling your home can be a very stressful time and I pride myself on reducing the stress for you as well as for the people on the other side of the transaction. I am a strong yet friendly negotiator and I will work hard to make every closing a happy occasion. I specialize in residential properties but, having a horse boarding farm of my own, I also work in horse properties and large acreage. Whatever your real estate needs, please call me to get the job done with professionalism and a smile. Thanks, I look forward to hearing from you!
I have lived in the Boulder area my entire life. There is no where I would rather live. I started purchasing investment properties in Boulder in my early 20’s and Boulder real estate has proven to be my most profitable financial venture. I graduated from the University of Colorado with a Business degree in Financial Management.
I have spent a great deal of time learning Boulder property values and studying local real estate trends. My experience in property management and property re-development has helped me to be able to analyze personal residents in addition to investment properties. I have acquired a great deal of knowledge in all areas of home construction. I look at every home discerningly, as if it were going to be a purchase for myself.
I love Colorado so much. Fortunately for me, all of my family still lives here. I enjoy spending time with my friends and family and we never have a shortage of things to do. I spend my free time boating, skiing, ski-mountaineering, running, climbing, hiking, gymnastics, diving, amongst other types of exercise.

Dan has been specializing in View and Open Space Properties in Boulder County for over 10 years. He has earned over $1 million buying and selling his own investment properties in Boulder County. He has successfully closed up to $10 million in real estate sales annually. As a resident of Colorado for over 20 years, Dan has managed rental properties, completed a number of his own fix-and-flip projects, and has new construction experience. In addition to being a licensed Realtor, Dan was elected by his peers to serve a three-year term on the Board of Directors of the Boulder Area Realtor Association (BARA). He is respected amongst his peers in the real estate industry.
Dan’s style is best described as informative, patient, never pushy and protective of the best interests of his clients. “If the client is satisfied. I am satisfied. If the client is not satisfied, my work is not finished. I react to my client’s wants and needs and as a result, my clients refer friends and family. This is the foundation of my business. Oh yes, and let’s have some fun in the process!” – Dan Heine
Outside of work, Dan enjoys spending quality time with his lovely wife and two children, Phoebe and Emerson, mountain biking and hiking the many trails around beautiful Boulder, traveling to warm places and beaches, photographing flowers, landscapes and people of the world, scuba diving and cruising town on his Vespa. One year he placed 52nd out of 485 swimmers at the Alcatraz Sharkfest Swim in San Francisco after being attacked by a Great White Shark (just kidding). What most people do not know about Dan is the fact that he has never had a cavity – wow, he played high school basketball on a state championship team in Parker, Colorado, he was a state champion swimmer in South Dakota, he played football and basketball in college but rarely takes the time to watch a game anymore. Dan and his wife are vegetarians. More than anything, Dan enjoys laughter and enjoying the moment with family, friends and clients.
I was born and raised here in Boulder, only leaving for a few years to attend Colorado State University. During my time there I served as the Public Relations Chairman for Kappa Kappa Gamma and went on to get my degree in Journalism and Public Relations. While still in college, I obtained my real estate license and started working for Goodacre & Company in 2003, just after graduating. Since that time I have gained valuable experience and expertise in the Boulder real estate market. Goodacre & Company continues to be a leader in the industry and I’m proud to work for a company with such a high-standing reputation and competitive sales record.
In time outside of real estate, my husband Ben and I are busy having fun with our three kids, Scout, Henry and Sloan. We love spending time outdoors, hiking & fly fishing and spend lots of time with friends and family.

Since then, we’ve put roots down, started a family and are still just as excited about Boulder as the day we arrived.
