In 1972 while attending Broward Community College, and finding an interest in real estate, and the opportunities it presented, I decided to take their real estate courses, and become licensed. Realistically, it was the time of my life that I also decided to start a family. Small children, and real estate and hard to meld! I finished the course of study, and did not do anything with it at the time, but the bug didn’t go away. After moving to Colorado in 1990, I immediately enrolled in real estate school again, and this time finished the course, got licensed, and went to work for Century 21. I spent quite a few years specializing in equestrian properties, and ranches, as I had horses, and lived in an equestrian area. After working about 17 years up ad down the front range of Colorado, for several companies, I decided I wanted to transition more to the mountains, and went to work for Prudential in Woodland Park. This was a beautiful area to work in, and still however, went farther into the mountain area moving to Park County, and going to work for Sothebys in Breckenridge. A very competitive market! but lots of fun, and new territory to see and learn about. After years of hearing about Crestone, and the spiritual retreat centers, I was fascinated. I fell in love my first trip down. I will never forget how beautiful I thought it to be, and so easy to sell, with all the beauty, and amenities it had to offer. 9 years later, I have built a home here, and found my destination. I find Crestone so easy to sell to newcomers, because I find it has so much to offer. It was love at first sight for me with Crestone, and it still makes it easy and exciting to sell real estate here.
