Daphne Queen

"We could not be more thankful that we found her and highly recommend her." - S.L.


Like many of us, I am a Colorado transplant (originally from South Bend, Indiana), but consider myself a native, as I have been a Boulder resident since 1991. I currently live in North Boulder, where my husband and I enjoy raising our son and playing with our two black Labradors.

My family and I take full advantage of all this great city offers: the pioneering local businesses, award-winning restaurants, active lifestyle options and the Rocky Mountains just minutes from our doorsteps. After raising my family here, I have a unique understanding of why Boulderites love to call this place home.

My background is with the Outdoor Ski and Snowboard Industry, where I spent ten years selling, servicing, and building relationships with some of Colorado's premier retailers and ski resorts. And as a fresh air aficionada, I haven't lost that lust for the great outdoors—I absolutely love to hike, bike and snowboard. My husband works in the music industry, and we’re lucky to enjoy all the live music options, from Red Rocks to more intimate, local venues.

As a REALTOR, I relish this profession because I love helping people achieve their home-owning dreams, especially in the Boulder market. Because of my deep local knowledge, I’m able to handplace my clients in the neighborhoods that best suit their needs. I help them find not only a home, but a community. 

Similarly, as more and more buyers are leaving larger cities around the nation, I’m not only an expert in relocation, but also love helping introduce my clients to their neighbors. I’m a connector through and through and a community resource, whether the ask is real estate-related, or simply the best spot to grab a cocktail along Pearl Street. 

I remember when I bought my first home; I was overcome with a sense of accomplishment. That emotion still resonates throughout my current profession, and I parlay this memory into the weight of every transaction. Both first-time homebuyers and individuals that have bought and sold multiple properties receive my continual attention and care.

Homes are where lives happen. And I am afforded one of the best jobs available because I can assist people in securing their dreams. As a top producer in the field for years, I’m more than qualified to help with any real estate need. 

Please contact me today, and Team Queen will help you find or sell your home.

I have so many great things to say about Daphne! I am a first time home-buyer who just moved from Austin, TX and she helped SO much . She answered all my questions (which there were a million) and did not get annoyed, and assisted me in getting a house that had 8 offers on it. Long story short we got the house and when we closed she brought over wine and a lovely houseplant, and was super sweet. She knows the area really well and will tell you like it is, which is great. She also knows a lot about the area that we were moving into and informed us about the good grocery stores and local events. Such a kind person, great Realtor. I would recommend her wholeheartedly.

My mommy is the best Realtor. She is fun and easy to work with and knows where all the best parks are in town!
