Raised in western Colorado and eastern Utah, with a lifetime of experience in business, including ranching, trucking, real estate, retail sales, appraisal, and registered cattle.
Family homesteaded in Castle Valley Utah in 1880's and by the late 1920's had expanded range from Cisco, UT to Roc Creek, south of Gateway, CO. Depression forced reduction to a 550 head commercial cattle opertation in four counties in Utah and Colorado. Interest spiral in the late 1970's seriously affected the operation and in 1984 remaining ranch properties were sold.
Since leaving the ranch in 1977 with shattered dreams at the age of 28, I have have driven trucks; hauling Uranium ore from mine to mill, automotive fuels around western Colorado, and flatbed freight across the country; operated retail outlets both in the local Mall and free standing; received my Real Estate Broker's license in 1984 to work with all types of real estate properties; received my Certified Residential Appraiser license in 2000; and have developed a small herd of registered Lowline Angus Cattle.
I have come to realize that real estate is my love and have been most satisfied and successful when helping others accomplish their goals and dreams. Continued involvement in the sale and valuation of real estate over the years have been very challenging, but very rewarding.
Some of the most notable transactions include:
Sale of Long Canyon Ranch for Arco Coal, Trinidad, CO;
Sale of Rock Creek Ranch for Joe & Sherry Fandrich, Powderhorn, CO;
Sale of Cebolla Hot Springs for Cadwell's, Powderhorn, CO;
Purchase of Westwater Ranch for Joe & Sherry Fandrich, Westwater, UT;
