In the early 1980s, Patrick Dolan fell in love with real estate. After purchasing and selling a couple homes for himself, he realized that it was fun and rewarding. He eventually started the Patrick Dolan Team at RE/MAX of Boulder. Decades later, the team continues to offer a cohesive, multi-faceted approach to the buying and selling homes in the Denver Metro area, utilizing the skills of each team member to the benefit of the client.
A Boulder native, Patrick has been the highest grossing agent at RE/MAX of Boulder since 1991. His many years of success and hard work have earned him recognition, including the honor of the Chairman’s Club, one of the highest single year honors that RE/MAX bestows upon a sales associate, and “The Circle of Legends” Award for Lifetime Achievement. “I love what I do, and I am lucky to do it in a wonderful place in Boulder, Colorado,” he says. “Even after 37 years and 2,800 deals, I still have the same passion and energy every day to try and help people. I appreciate the support from all my family, friends, past clients, and network professionals.”
He is joined by three agents who complete the Patrick Dolan Team: Karolyn Merrill, Kelly Atteridg and Bryce Dolan. “With the longevity of working together, we all know each other very well,” says Patrick. “Karolyn even babysat for Bryce when he was a toddler! Our team is small and well-rounded. It is rare to find a team like ours who have all worked together for a very long time. We are like family.” The team works as a unit, with each agent bringing a unique touch to the joint effort.
Kelly grew up in Boulder and is a graduate of CU-Boulder. She started her real estate career in 1993 selling new homes for several builders, including Richmond Homes in Superior, where she worked for seven years and developed her passion for working in real estate. She joined the Patrick Dolan team as a licensed sales partner in 2007. Kelly has helped hundreds of families buy and sell homes, specializing in Boulder and Broomfield Counties. “Helping our clients realize their dreams of finding or selling homes is a very fulfilling and rewarding career,” she says. “I’ve enjoyed the relationships and friendships I’ve developed over the years.” Kelly has lived in Superior for more than 20 years, where she enjoys running, skiing, hiking, and boating. Kelly and her husband Bill have been married for more than 25 years and share two wonderful children, Jack (24) and Andie Sue (15).
Karolyn brings to the team a vast knowledge of Boulder County and 24 years of experience in many different types of transactions, including residential, investment, and new construction. She has been with the Patrick Dolan Team for 15 years and has facilitated more than 500 real estate transactions. “We get to work with wonderful people who pass along more wonderful people, and it is so gratifying to help someone seamlessly in what could be a challenging process,” she says. “I love to problem solve and think outside the box to ensure the success of our clients. Every day and every deal have unique qualities and it keeps work interesting.” Karolyn moved to Boulder from Boston in 1991, and enjoys skiing, cycling, and hiking with her doodles in her free time. She also volunteers for Meals on Wheels in her community.
A third generation Boulder Realtor, Bryce joined the team as a sales partner in 2015. He has successfully helped many first-time homebuyers find their dream home across the Denver Metro area. “Being able to help people from all different backgrounds, price ranges, and interests get to where they want to go – that’s what it’s all about,” he says.
The Patrick Dolan Team prides itself on being hands-on with your real estate transaction, making every effort to relieve stress and simplify the process for both buyers and sellers. “There is always someone available to take care of our client’s needs,” says Patrick. “We each bring a wealth of knowledge and experience, mixed with camaraderie amongst the team, to give the best service to our clients.”
But it’s not just the agents themselves who make the team so effective. Behind the scenes, Jamie Young and Adison Young bring their impressive coordination and marketing skills to ensure the Patrick Dolan Team is connecting with customers and providing excellent service at every stage of client interaction. Jamie, the office manager for the team, has a background in title insurance and grew up around the real estate industry. “As cliché as it sounds,” Jamie says, “you learn something new every day. It’s been an incredible learning experience and Patrick, Kelly, Karolyn and Bryce have all been mentors to me.”
Marketing Director Adison has worked with the team for more than 10 years. She designs and oversees both digital and print marketing, as well as the team’s social media presence. “We truly enjoy working with each other and helping our clients,” Adison says. “Collectively, we create a very diverse team.”
The entire team is grateful to be a part of this wonderful community and they believe in giving back. Over the years, The Patrick Dolan Team has supported many different charitable causes such as Boulder County Share-A-Gift, There With Care, Boulder Valley Humane Society, I Have a Dream Foundation and numerous other organizations. They look forward to continuing their work in the community.
