About Arica Andreatta
Arica Andreatta was born and raised in Huerfano County and has a deep sense of respect for the Southern Colorado way of life. Arica graduated from John Mall High School in Walsenburg and then moved to Boulder where she obtained a BA in Business Management with an emphasis in Real Estate from the University of Colorado. Throughout college, she worked as a Mortgage Broker Assistant and upon graduation in 2007, she became a Licensed Broker Associate for Coldwell Banker, the leading real estate brokerage in Boulder. Although Arica was fortunate enough to have a great deal of success as a realtor in Denver and Boulder, she felt something was missing. She decided to take a leap of faith and move back to Southern Colorado as this is where her heart resided. Upon her return, she worked as a manager for a large corporation which offered durable medical equipment throughout Southern Colorado. Arica learned a great deal about managing other employees, financial accounting, human resources, marketing, and the overall skills necessary to operate a successful business. She was then promoted to a Sales Representative position where she traveled all over Southern Colorado meeting with physicians and promoting the business and equipment offered. Through these travels, Arica often thought about Real Estate and how passionate she still was about helping others find their little piece of heaven just as she has found her serenity in the quaint town of La Veta, Colorado. Arica then decided to join the fine group at Capture Colorado where she learned about Real Estate in Southern Colorado and how it differs from Northern Colorado. Arica immediately found great success, as she was the top producer in the company and a top producer in Huerfano County in 2015, closing over $4.7 million in sales with 34 successful transactions. With this success she decided to spread her wings and open her own brokerage firm and has steadily continued her success which was shown in 2016 when she was named "The Broker of the Year" and in 2017 when she was given the title of "The Top Producer" in Huerfano County with over $11,000,000 in personal sales and $21,000,000 as a company. In 2018, Arica was named as one of the "10 Best Real Estate Agents in Colorado" by the Amerian Institute of Real Estate Agents. Arica has lead her team at Code of the West Real Estate to $100,000,000 in closed sales dollars midway through the year in 2019. Amongst the many successes, Arica's true passion for management and teaching others how to find similar success persisted and she is honored to say Code of the West now employs 24 local community members and is consistently adding new positions. Every individual who works for Code of the West Real Estate strives to better the community in which we all live and has found success while doing so. Arica is the Owner and Managing Broker of Code of the West Real Estate, but she also serves as the Spanish Peaks MLS President, Pueblo Association of Realtors Board Director, Co-Founder of the Spanish Peaks Business Alliance, Owner of The Loft Downtown Walsenburg, an Early Childhood Development Committee Member, and a Southern Colorado Representative for Economic Development. More than that Arica is a wife and mother of two. Arica and her husband Chad currently reside in La Veta and have two sons, Jhett Willis, and Madix Don Andreatta. An avid outdoorswoman, Arica spends her free time with her family on their La Veta Cattle Ranch.
