Personalized real estate service for selling or buying real estate in the North Fork Valley (Paonia, Crawford, Hotchkiss) of Colorado.
I began my real estate career over 20 years ago as a top producer in the Florida Keys. Co-founder of American Caribbean Real Estate in Islamorada, Florida a premier waterfront specialist firm. After becoming a first time mom, I sold my interest in the company and continued investing in real estate.
Most recently I was the Director of Development at KVNF Community Radio. In the past a VP of a boutique corporate communications firm and the Business Manager for a ski area clinic.
In the spring of 2016 I ventured back into real estate as a licensed Broker with Needlerock Mountain Realty & Land LLC. The firm is consistently among the top producers in Delta County with an active staff of Brokers who live and volunteer in the North Fork Valley. Char, the Office Manager, has twenty plus years of real estate experience and is an invaluable member of the team of Brokers at Needlerock Realty. I was #7 for real estate volume in the North Fork Valley for 2016 which was just a little over a half a year since getting a Colorado License.
Thank you for your consideration and I look forwards to working with you!
As resident of Paonia, a mother of three, and a grandmother of four grandchildren my family keeps me busy. My youngest is currently in 6th Grade at the public Montessori School in Crawford and my grown children live with their families in Crested Butte and Gunnison. When I was eleven years old my family immigrated to the Bay Area in California from Switzerland. It’s wonderful to have called some of the most spectacular places on earth home; Switzerland, California, Islamorada in the Florida Keys, Crested Butte and Paonia.
In my free time I enjoy volunteering. I am current the Vice President of the North Fork Valley Creative Coalition and a past board member of Friends of Montessori in Crawford, The Western Slope Conservation Center and the Lead Curator of TEDxPaonia. I spend my free time hiking, wildcrafting and searching for mushrooms. My youngest daughter and I often venture out camping in the surrounding mountain valleys and going to hot springs. My favorite mode of transportation is my trusty 1974 Schwinn three speed. I love cross country skiing on the ditches surrounding Paonia and on the Grand Mesa.
I feel blessed and full of gratitude by coming into the real estate world at a most opportune time. Due to my success in my first months I have committed to giving back 10% of my commission to non-profits in the North Fork Valley. The following organizations have been instrumental in making the area a spectacular place to live and have directly benefitted from my sales.
Friends of the Paradise Theatre, Elsewhere Studios, Blue Sage, Colorado Farm and Food Alliance, Delta County Citizens for Animal Welfare & Shelter (CAWS), Friends of North Fork Montessori at Crawford, High Country News, Hope West, KVNF Community Radio, The Conservation Center, The Learning Council, Citizens for a Healthy Community
