Get to Know Malou van Eijk

My name is Malou van Eijk and I moved to Vail, Colorado after college with my car packed and from having grown up in Charlotte, North Carolina in 1986. I attended Appalachian State University before finishing my degrees in Marketing, Information Systems and Hotel, Restaurant and Resort Management.  I worked with Marriott International in Vail and Denver for 15 years with the executive committees.  I enjoy all of the gifts that Colorado has to offer and try to "get away" to the mountains in my spare time.

I worked in hospitality managment for many years before I settled on real estate. One day I realized that both of my passions (entrepreneurship and homes) could be covered in this field. I now live in Genesee, Colorado a "hidden gem" and have an extensive knowledge of the Foothills and Denver Metro area. Although I am  located in the footills, I have bought and sold homes throughout the Denver Metro area and suburbs.

I offer exceptional customer service throughout the home buying and/or selling process. I ensure a smooth transaction every time. Having worked with first-time home buyers as well as seasoned veterans, I always cater my service to your specific needs. It is my goal to make certain that your experience is as enjoyable as possible. I truly enjoy real estate and have a passion for what I do!  I am a REALTOR in the state and also have my E-Pro and C-CREC certifications. 

Welcome to


This exclusive Foothills Community built in harmony with nature,  graces 2100 acres.  Half of the acres are reserved as open space for the enjoyment of the community.

Genesee boasts the perfect balance between glorious mountain living and city convenience.  We're located only 25 minutes from Downtown Denver and 45 minutes to World Class Skiing.

Tucked away just south of the I-70 corridor at Lookout Mountain, and situated at over 7,500 feet above sea level, Genesee is a residential community where the beauty and serenity of mountain living is combined with easy accessibility to the amenities of metropolitan Denver.

Genesee's 883 homes have been sensitively and sensibly constructed on over 2,000 acres of spectacular mountain property. Its superb planning has allowed the area to develop a series of small neighborhoods with a sense of community as well as privacy. Most homes have panoramic vistas of either downtown Denver or the majesty of Mt. Evans and the Continental Divide, or both!

Genesee is a covenant-protected community where the developed environment coexists in harmony with the area's natural setting. Genesee has some 1,200 acres of dedicated open space on which over 12 miles of well maintained hiking trails offer residents of all ages the opportunity to experience the great outdoors within an easy walk from their back door.

The Genesee Foundation, its Homeowners' Association, and numerous neighborhood committees have become a model of efficiency in their management and maintenance of the community's abundant open space and common areas, as well as its impressive recreational facilities. Genesee has three clubhouses, two playgrounds, two outdoor pools, four tennis courts, a racquetball court, an exercise room, and up-to-date meeting facilities. The community is afforded the comfort and peace of mind of a twenty-four hour patrol and a well-equipped fire station located within the community. For families of all sizes and ages, Genesee is truly "The Residential Community."
