Top Agent

Experience, care, integrity, effort - these are the main qualities I bring to real estate brokerage. And they deliver results; I am fortunate to be consistently among the top-selling brokers in Crestone, the Baca Grande, and Saguache County. I love these communities, and the greater San Luis Valley - a land of stark beauty, with soaring mountains, sparkling creeks, high-desert fauna/flora, quiet, solitude, tranquility, sunny days, starry nights, strong community, and myriad outdoor activities.

Buying or selling a home is often the most significant transaction one will experience. It needs to be expertly navigated, informed by unparalleled market knowledge, quick/effective communication, strategic negotiation, and meticulous contract work. While the dollar values may be lower, the same applies to buying and selling vacant land. My mission is to meet and exceed your expectations, working tirelessly in pursuit of your goals.

I support local events, businesses, and non-profits, belong to Realtors of Central Colorado, Colorado Association of Realtors and National Association of Realtors. I serve on the boards of Baca Grande Water & Sanitation District, a local branch of Colorado government, as well Crestone Eagle Community Media, a 501(c)3 nonprofit. I live in the Baca Grande with my wife and two cats, and in my free time love working outside on our property, amidst the breathtaking nature that draws us here.
