My wife and I and our five children are privileged to call Crested Butte home. My love of the outdoors and desire to raise our kids in a beautiful, safe environment are what led me to this valley 14 years ago.

I am very involved in our great community, and have served as a part-time Youth Pastor, a volunteer director of the Community Food Bank, an Assistant Scoutmaster for the Boy Scouts and in various Crested Butte sporting programs.

When I am not selling real estate, I like to mountain bike, hike, fish, ski, snowmobile and play ice hockey. My attention to detail, knowledge of the market, and hard work will be especially valuable to you when it is time to buy or sell a property. I have been recognized as a top, award-winning producer in the Crested Butte brokerage community during my 14 years of selling real estate.

I look forward to meeting you and assisting you with any of your real estate needs in the Crested Butte & Gunnison areas.

I began my pursuit for the Colorado lifestyle in 1989 when I relocated from Indianapolis, Indiana. As a consummate sales professional, I have spent time working with marketing at Copper Mountain and a Director for a Fine Art Gallery in Boulder. After one visit to the Gunnison Valley in 1999, I shortly moved to Crested Butte and pursued my career in property management and real estate sales. My family and I reside in downtown Crested Butte and are local business owners. We are fortunate to raise our 7 year old son in this unique mountain community. We take full advantage of all Crested Butte has to offer and in our spare time enjoy back-country/downhill skiing, snowmobiling, and hiking.
My extended knowledge in sales and my history in property management, allows me to accurately facilitate your housing goals. The client’s satisfaction is the most important element to my real estate practice and what I focus on achieving. I offer an integrated full-service personal approach and can assist and guide you through the process of buying or selling your home. Every individual has their own unique situation and style with varying needs and I’m prepared to listen and help you determine what will best serve your highest interests. Long after you’ve fulfilled buying or selling a property, you can still rely on me with all of your Crested Butte real estate questions.

My great grandparents were early settlers of Crested Butte. They moved here from Yugoslavia in the early 1900’s, helping to form the diverse and vibrant culture prevalent here today.
As much as I loved growing up in Crested Butte, I left in the mid-80’s to pursue first a career in real estate but then turned to my other passion and pursued a career working with Indy race cars. After living “life in the fast lane” I returned home to care for my family.
I continue to carry on family tradition by living in my grandparents’ house that was brought into town from the Floresta mine over 100 years ago. I cherish this area and love helping others to become a part of this beautiful community. When I’m not in the office serving you, I’m fulfilling my “need for speed” snowmobiling in the backcountry, hiking with friends and my four dogs, or riding motorcycles with my husband Turbo.

It was a leap of faith that brought my family to Crested Butte from Okemo, VT after my husband Michael transferred here with the Mueller’s when they purchased CBMR in 2004. I had never even stepped foot in Colorado before arriving that September, but once we got a taste of the Colorado lifestyle, we have never looked back. With 300 days of sunshine, bluebird skies, and snowcapped peaks, we happily left the grey New England winters behind and embraced all that Colorado has to offer. I count my blessings every day that I get to live here.

As a Broker Associate with Crested Butte Resort Real Estate, it is deeply satisfying to share this beautiful place and help others find their own dreams. Give me a call and let me show you the Crested Butte I have come to know and love and am lucky enough to call home.

My passion for real estate began in San Diego where I purchased and remodeled my first home at the age of 21. In 1994, a business opportunity, and the desire to live in the mountains, brought me to Crested Butte. My community involvement includes having had the honor to serve locally as a volunteer firefighter. I have over 20 years of experience in real estate sales and development, as well as extensive knowledge and a keen eye for all aspects of remodeling.
I value the lifestyle that Crested Butte offers and I am fortunate to live in such a beautiful place where I can pursue my other interests, such as skiing, camping, snowmobiling, and dirt bike riding, right out my backdoor. Whether you are relocating to the area, or purchasing a vacation home, I am eager to share my experience in all aspects of real estate in order to fulfill your needs and find you the perfect property in a true paradise!

Dallas, Texas is my hometown and I found Crested Butte by way of Washington, DC. My professional experience was in sales and marketing on a national corporate level. In Crested Butte I added real estate development and sales, property management and lodging to my portfolio.
My husband and I live in Mt. Crested Butte and are both active in the community. Chris has spent 14 years as a councilman and former mayor. And I currently serve on the Mt. Crested Butte Planning Commission and was elected to the town’s Water & Sanitation District. In addition to numerous other volunteer activities, we support the effective stewardship of our community.
Moving to Crested Butte with an engagement ring and a wedding date, this “imported” city girl quickly adapted to the Crested Butte lifestyle. When not assisting the brokers with the marketing of their listings, I enjoy skiing, hiking, golfing and cheering for my favorite football teams – LSU Tigers & Dallas Cowboys.
