Local Business Woman Starts Wildflower Group After Difficulties, The Villager
LITTLETON – Joan Rogliano founded a sideline while selling real estate. It started with heartbreak. “I went through a very difficult divorce,” Rogliano said. That’s not what caused her to found the Wildflower Group in 2006. It’s other women who were going through the same thing she had gone through that prompted Rogliano to found the organization. “I was finding that my clients were getting a lot of misinformation when going through divorce,” Rogliano said. “No one was addressing what their goals were, somebody needed to step forward.”
Realtor with Specialty, Denver Post
Realtor Joan Rogliano specializes in some of the least happy real estate transactions … ones during or after a divorce. You can tour a listing today that she has open in Belleview Village…a popular area near the Highline Canal west of Belleview that hasn’t had many homes on the market for the past two years. It’s showing three now, and this is the least expensive.
Women in Transition, Forbes
A Competitive Edge in Denver’s Luxury Home Market.

“Truly listen and then ask questions.” “I find so often, particularly in my business, that you have to really be a detective to figure out what it is people are looking for,” Rogliano said. “Really listening is important because sometimes we think we know what people are trying to say, but that’s not what they’re saying at all.”
Divorce and Your Home, Balance Magazine
When the decision has been made to end a marriage, advice is always forthcoming. Family and friends, while well meaning, may have an agenda of their own attached to their suggestions. Before moving forward we must carefully consider the choices before us, and accept that these choices are ultimately ours alone to make.
Tips For First Time Buyers And Homeowners Going Through Divorce, Denver Post
A decade ago, veteran Colorado Realtor Joan Rogliano weathered a difficult divorce. The process illuminated for this longtime real estate agent the need for people in general – and women in particular – to have access to honest, no-strings-attached information about real estate and finances. That was the beginning of The Wildflower Group, a Littleton, Colo., organization that holds free seminars for first-time homebuyers, and anyone going through or thinking about divorce. Here, Rogliano elaborates on the need for her work.
Q: What personal experiences gave rise to The Wildflower Group?
A: Through my divorce (and) the fact that I seemed to be working with a lot of women who were transitioning through divorce or widowhood, I found women get a lot of misinformation about real estate. Their advisors, family members and so forth, are telling them they don’t have any options – that they have to sell their house, wipe the slate clean and move on. If I had known then what I know now, I would have handled things differently. Specifically, I wouldn’t have sold my home, especially when there are kids involved.
When to Sell, Divorce Edition
The very word “divorce” can create uneasiness in most of us. Divorce presents change and choices – some that we’d rather not make. Topping the list is what to do with the home the family has shared for so long. For many of us women, our homes are the foundation of family life and a safe harbor from everyday demands. Because of our unique role in the family, we typically have stronger emotional attachments than our husbands do toward our homes. As a result, to sell or stay in a home can be emotionally and financially wrenching.

Wildflower Group helps women own their own homes.
In 1995 Cheryl Brown’s world changed. Her marriage was ending and she fought to keep the house she lived in, the only home her daughters, then 11 and 9, had ever known. She was determined to raise them in that home. Her former husband told her she couldn’t do it, but with court ordered maintenance and working full time, and sacrificing many things, she pulled it off with a refinance loan.
Seminar Educates Women About Divorce, Colorado Community Newspapers
Women going through divorce frequently are under pressure to sell the marital home and move on, as if that were their only alternative. This may not be the right choice for everyone. Joan Rogliano of Prestige Realty Group of Denver has met many women in transition dealing with divorce who later regretted making the decision to sell.
Rogliano gave a free seminar, “Divorce and Your Home,” last week for a group of women in Denver at her office in Cherry Creek. “You will hear that you should liquidate everything,” said Rogliano, a Realtor since the early 1980s.
