Vashti Rael


As a representative of Northern Colorado homeowners and future homeowners, I am committed to reaching my clients’ goals by listening to their needs and utilizing my resources. My collaborative, yet direct style has yielded my clients much success.   

I moved to Northern Colorado 14 years ago, so I understand the challenges that come with moving to a new community. I am here to help navigate those challenges, as well as offer tips and tricks to discovering the uniqueness and nuances of the Northern Colorado community.  

“Vashti was such a good agent for us. We needed to find the right home at the right price, and we were in no hurry to move. Vashti was extra patient with us. We never felt any pressure. And yet every time we showed interest she jumped right back in to help.” 

After receiving my  degree from Colorado State University, I set out to build on my skill set while creating meaningful connections and relationships. My studies in business and journalism, coupled with my commercial and residential leasing background set the stage for a phenomenal real estate career. As a Certified Luxury Home Marketing Specialist™, I am an expert in luxury real estate but have a passion for first-time buyers, as well. Whatever your situation, I have extensive knowledge of the different areas and neighborhoods in Northern Colorado to help you find exactly what you’re looking for. 

An active and connected volunteer in the community, I believe in paying it forward. I am a member of Women & Philanthropy at Colorado State University, and the Larimer County chapter of WomenGive, where I participate in the membership and events committee and fundraising. From my support of the CSU Athletics program to my involvement in Women& Inc. Mastermind, there is no doubt that I have a strong passion for the people of the community. 

When not assisting clients, I love to travel, ballroom dance, and compete in local triathlons. I take advantage of the 280+ miles of bike lanes and 30+ miles of beautiful biking trails that Fort Collins has to offer. Once a year, you’ll find me somewhere warm in the middle of winter snorkeling and scuba diving.  I also cherish spending time with my extended family, whom I draw strength and inspiration from. 

As your realtor, I will be an advocate for you. Whether you are buying, selling or renting, I  will work tirelessly to get you to your goals and promote your best interests. I  will always put you first and am dedicated to providing service and expertise that make each transaction as seamless and successful as possible. 

“Vashti had a way of encouraging and motivating us when the process seemed daunting. She'll always find a way and that makes a world of difference. You will not regret working with this smart and caring woman.”

Vashti was amazing! Great follow up, and a wonderful person to work with. We will use her again for all of our real estate needs. It was a very challenging market but [with] 8z and Vashti we found exactly what we were looking for.

8z Real Estate is the total package - everything and every service you need is under one roof. Everyone I dealt with knew their stuff, were friendly, and very helpful to me.

There are three main reasons why my 8z Realtors are such effective agents. They are careful listeners, know people who can get things done, and are on the cutting edge of real estate technology.
