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 13 years ago. I am very involved in our community. I currently serve as a volunteer Director of the Crested Butte Community Food Bank and as an Assistant Scoutmaster for the Boy Scouts. I have also participated in many Crested Butte sports and youth group programs. When I am not selling real estate, I enjoy mountain biking, hiking, fishing, skiing, snowmobiling and playing 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 13 years of selling real estate. I look forward to assisting you!

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 5 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.

When Tim and Diane Mueller purchased CBMR back in 2004, it was a leap of faith that brought my family to Crested Butte, after my husband Michael transferred from here from Okemo Mountain Resort in Vermont. I had never stepped foot in Colorado before arriving here in August to check out our soon to be new home. We have never looked back. The lifestyle we discovered has been life changing. From the 360 days of sunshine to the incredible skiing, we also enjoy hiking, biking, snowshoeing, and even boating in the summers on beautiful Blue Mesa Reservoir. We have happily left the grey New England winters behind and embraced all that Colorado has to offer.
Having left a long time, successful real estate business in Vermont, I stayed home in the beginning to get my children, Skylar and Tristan, settled and involved myself in volunteer opportunities. I spent 5 years as the secretary for the Ski Club, 7 years on the Community School PTA Board, currently serving as Vice President, and most recently as the Rotary Youth Exchange Director for the Crested Butte Rotary Club. This past year, as my daughter headed off to college and my son is now a junior in high school, I have come back to my roots to work with Crested Butte Resort Real Estate. I am thrilled to be back and am excited to be working again in what I believe is one of the most interesting and rewarding businesses to be in. I couldn’t ask for anything more than to help people find their dreams. Let me show you the Crested Butte I have come to know and love and hope to always 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 12 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 life style. 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.
