Liz Amaro

Broker Associate

Liz’s love affair with Boulder County began when she moved from Kansas City in 2012 to attend the University of CU Boulder. After she graduated in 2015, she couldn’t imagine living and working anywhere else.

Liz’s Commercial Real Estate career started off in the marketing world, but her desire to learn more about this industry led her to earn her Broker’s license in 2017. Liz’s creative problem solving, and communication skills allow her to streamline every transaction while paying great attention to detail. She approaches every transaction with a proactive, professional, energetic and honest approach. Her ability to identity and focus on the goals of clients allow her to provide strategic guidance to help them achieve these goals.

In Liz’s spare time, you can almost always find her in the great outdoors enjoying fresh Colorado air and sunshine with her family friends, and of course, her dog, Dannie.

Kelly Ahman

Transaction and Operations Coordinator

Kelly is originally from Lima, Ohio, but followed her family to Colorado after graduating from the University of South Carolina. She began working seasonally at a summer camp specializing in mountain guiding and backpacking and intermittently taught outdoor education for the same organization. After a couple years of seasonal work between camps and ski resorts, she settled in Boulder in 2018 where she entered the world of outdoor retail. She spent several years in management between major retailers until she jumped at the opportunity to join the Crabtree Team as the transaction and operations coordinator. In her free time you’ll most likely find her running or biking the trails in Boulder, skiing at Eldora, or checking 14ers off her list!

Our team loves real estate and lives and breathes the Boulder lifestyle. Which means we can market and sell it as an investment better than anyone.

Financial Feasibility Analysis

Interested in a project and don’t know where to start? We’re interested too.


Scott was a valuable asset during our companies recent period of rapid growth. He quickly assessed the market and had arranged site location visits within days of starting the search. Once we chose a location, his assistance in negotiating the terms, build out, subleasing our old location, and move out/in strategies and services, etc were awesome. We couldn’t have done it all without him.


Scott has outperformed our expectations on each assignment where we have engaged him. He has a deep knowledge of the Boulder County commercial real estate market and a passion for getting deals done.

I highly recommend the Crabtree Team for commercial real estate brokerage services in Boulder and the surrounding areas. Scott's professionalism, attention to detail and broad market knowledge are second to none in the industry. His charismatic, yet tactical approach not only helps broker the right deal — it also makes the process of finding the right space or tenant enjoyable. I’ll continue to use the Crabtree Team for all of my future commercial real estate needs.

Scott is a joy to work with. Not only does he know the market well but he is very organized, low pressure and just a good guy.

Brad SchellInvestor

Our experience with Scott Crabtree was excellent from beginning to end. Not only did Scott showed us a range of options for our company’s needs and size, he provided considerable insight on how to best align our real estate needs for future growth. Throughout the process Scott exercised considerable patience in a tight real estate market and provided us confidence and assurance as we went through the renovation process on our new office space. He was a valuable partner to have in our corner.

Scott made our move from the east coast to Boulder seamless. He went above and beyond to help secure our office space in our absence. I would recommend Scott’s brokerage service to anyone looking for commercial real estate.

Purely ElizabethTenant

I recently acquired a small office building in downtown Boulder and was fortunate to have Scott Crabtree of the Colorado Group as my realtor. He provided me with the highest level of service that I could expect. He is a consummate professional with a great deal of knowledge and experience in the regional market. In my case, the deal was complex. Scott was able to clearly track the many moving parts. From the multiple sellers to the several lease amendments that needed to be negotiated, I was clearly briefed on developments and deadlines until the sale was finally concluded. What was a mildly stressful process would have been hugely more so without Scott's level head and steady demeanor. I highly recommend his services.

Eric SorensonInvestor

With their guidance, we landed the perfect location in a desirable area that fits all our needs. They introduced us to architects and builders who turned our vision into reality resulting in a beautiful new headquarters with outdoor spaces, a collaborative work environment, innovation test kitchens and much more that our team members will enjoy. Because of the partnership with Scott and the Colorado Group, Yasso has successfully relocated with no disruption to our business and is proud to call Boulder home.


We had a great experience with Scott. He knows clearly knows the industry and his market very well. But what set him apart for EcoEnclose was that he took time to listen and learn about our business, our financial position and our timeline. Acting more as a partner to us, he was then able to guide our search, offers and negotiations with our specific situation in mind. We ended up with a fantastic outcome – leasing a building that we were then able to put under contract and acquire. He’ll be my first call on future real estate needs and I would recommend him to others.

Kyle WenteOwner, EcoEnclose

Scott found us a great space for our team in Boulder and helped us make it our own. In a hot market with spaces moving quickly, you want a pro like Scott on your side.

Nick KishfyMojo Tech

Scott did an exceptional job finding an off-market commercial office space for our company. He was able to leverage his in-depth market knowledge and locate us a property prior to it ever being listed. Scott was truly a pleasure to work with and I admire his integrity, work ethic and professionalism. I look forward to working with Scott again for any future real estate needs.

Craig HarrisonWCP

Scott was recommended to us by a residential real estate colleague. We were looking for a creative office space to set some roots down into. He was able to show us several interesting properties right off the bat. He took our feedback and our special requests to heart. Within a short time, he was able to connect us to the ultimate space. We love our new creative clubhouse. Scott is at the top of our list when it comes time to find our next space.

Eric ScottSobo Designs

During a period of rapid growth for our organization, Scott’s brokerage services and knowledge of available commercial real estate helped us to move quickly and secure additional space with the proper economics.
