“FROM MY POSITION AS DIRECTOR OF OPERATIONS AND EDUCATION, I GET TO WATCH THE BEST BROKERS PUT TOGETHER DEALS THAT ARE AS SATISFYING AS OUR FIRST RESORT PURCHASE.”
Where are you from?
I have lived in Colorado ski resort towns my entire adult life. Each one is special but what I love about Steamboat is the authentic western roots and small town feel, without being too small. The proximity to Denver and Grand Junction allows us to enjoy the sports and arts that Colorado has to offer.
What is your favorite thing about Steamboat?
The famous Steamboat saying, “I came for the winters but I stayed for of the summers” applies to our family. My family loves the winter but summer is my favorite season to be in Steamboat. The long warm days, walks in the wildflowers, paddle boarding at Pearl Lake and beautiful sunsets make my heart sing.
What drew you to a career in Real Estate?
As a young married couple with two small children, we were looking to purchase our 1st resort home. The seller of the duplex we were looking at suggested that we buy both sides of the property. The idea seemed to far out of reach for us but we were able to make it work and from that point I have loved the idea of putting together a deal. An opportunity to work for the brokerage that we had used in our initial transaction became available and our children were at the right age so I took a leap to work in real estate. I started as an office manager, became a personal assistant and then had an opportunity to share my experience & knowledge with a brokerage. From my position as Director or Operations and Education, I get to watch the best brokers put together deals that are as satisfying as our first resort purchase. I occasionally get to put together a deal on my own!
