I've been involved in the real estate industry for over 3 yrs & a Broker Associate w/ Century 21 Humpal since Jan 2005.I grew up in Switzerland where less than 10% of the population will ever own their own home. Because of a fascination w/ the real estate industry in the USA, I developed a passion for assisting people in finding exactly what they want. I am fluent in Swiss German, German and French & am able to offer services in Spanish & many other languages as well. Call me for your real estate needs.

I am Lestel Meade. I joined the CENTURY 21 Humpal, Inc. team in 1997. I have a varied background with a Bachelors degree in Social Work and a Masters degree in Education. I have become one of the top producing members of the CENTURY 21 Humpal, Inc. team and the CENTURY 21 ® System. I have been ranked in the top 50 agents in the Rocky Mountain Region since 1999. I would love to help you find the perfect house to call home. Please give me a call and let's get started.
In 1978, I received my Real Estate license & completed my Brokers licensing in 1980. After working in the Loveland area, I took a position as Sales Manager in the Dillon/Silverthorne, Colorado area. At the end of 1985, I moved my family back to Loveland & became an insurance agent. After 19 years, I decided to retire. After a couple months of "retirement", it was time to do something more. Working w/ people & real estate is something I enjoy, so I am pleased to be back selling real estate!
I'm a Colorado native, resident of Fort Collins since 1971, and a graduate of Fort Collins High School and Colorado State University. In fact, my entire family still lives in Fort Collins. Over the years, "the Fort" evolved from a sleepy college town of 40,000 people to a bustling, world-class city of 140,000. You wouldn't believe the changes I've seen!
I became a REALTOR® because I'm passionate about real estate and I enjoy helping people. It's an honor when clients place their trust in me; I never take that trust for granted. It motivates me to work hard, and to see my clients fulfill their dreams and goals, and have a great experience.
Prior to becoming a REALTOR®, I was involved in the scuba diving industry. I was President and shareholder in Scuba Schools International, the second-largest diver certification brand in the world (www.divessi.com). I traveled and dove in the Caribbean, Hawaii, and many states. In 2008, I negotiated the sale of SSI to a German buying group.
After leaving the scuba industry, I became involved with Dale Carnegie Training. With proceeds from the sale of SSI, I formed a residential rental property company, called WUM Properties. WUM owns and leases five properties in Fort Collins and Loveland.
When I'm not working with clients, I like to ski, bike, hike, and hunt. I also enjoy the wonderful, live theatres we have in Fort Collins (Openstage, Nonsuch, and Ba Bleu), our many restaurants, our beautiful Old Town, and our great CSU Rams sports teams.
If there's anything I can do to make your life easier, please let me know.
I'm proud to be a Colorado native and a graduate of Colorado State University with degrees in Finance and Real Estate. I have over 7 years experience in the Northern Colorado real estate market. I thoroughly enjoy my real estate career and love helping people achieve their dreams of buying and selling homes. Please don't hesitate to contact me with all of your real estate needs!
