She, along with her husband, two grown children, and their dogs, lives a Colorado lifestyle with an emphasis on participating in outdoor activities such as hiking and skiing as well as more contemplative hobbies including knitting, reading, yoga, and music appreciation. She came to the real estate profession after many years working in business and education.
Please click on each of these three words that Carla uses to describe her orientation to life and to her business:
One of Kristi’s passions is working with investors to find properties in need of transformation. Being and working with investors means investing in properties, people, and the community. It is just one way she feels connected to, and proud to be part of, our community.
Kristi’s hobbies include spending time with her partner and their dogs, rescuing treasures from thrift stores, and volunteering and fostering for dog rescue organizations.
Kim’s Why is to establish long client relationships by providing excellent customer service, knowledge and experience and for those relationships to be lasting friendships.
Kim has been involved in real estate since 2005 gaining expertise in listings, transaction coordination, communication, successful systems, and appraising before becoming a licensed agent in 2008. As a broker, she holds two designations – ABR (Accredited Buyer’s Representative) and SRES (Senior Real Estate Specialist), and has helped clients buy and sell for the past dozen years. Her professional passions are to listen respectfully to what clients share with her and to be their best advocate.
In her off time, Kim enjoys taking unplanned, no map road trips with her husband who is a teacher and coach during which they make unexpected discoveries. She also values spending time with her grandchildren.
Kim’s core values include practicing The Golden Rule, having integrity, and believing that what she puts out there will come back to her in due course.
I am skilled at pro-active problem
solving to avoid undesired surprises. If I can’t preventatively solve an issue, then I am flexible and change my attitude. I pride myself on offering solutions and alternatives to help the process along to a desirable outcome for all involved parties.
There are right ways and wrong ways of handling situations and I always keep my clients’ best interests in mind. I support them with what they need even if it’s not a buy or sell for me in the end.
Coming from a place of compassion, I try to understand people by hearing what they have to say first and foremost. I respect their decisions. My belief is that it is not about me; it’s about my clients.
Two important skills Ashley brings to Coming Home Realty and its clients are attention to detail and a willingness to run down every bit of information clients might need in order to make informed decisions. She comes to real estate after a former 14 year career as a paralegal. She has also had multiple jobs in office settings providing services perceived as the glue holding the organizations together. Ashley sees herself as a collaborator, as a hard worker, and as being open minded. Canon City is her hometown which gives her an insightful perspective when sharing it with clients.
She has traveled extensively. In particular, she frequently visits her three adult daughters and granddaughter in the Gunnison Valley. Ashley has a degree in History. She believes that everyone should have the privilege of home ownership, that it is the way people can best participate in a thriving democratic society. She helps her clients be successful to achieve this dream.
I want to hear my clients’ stories because it helps me understand what motivates them and, as a result, better serve them. I enjoy learning about people, places, and things. That is one reason history fascinates me because somebody has done it somewhere; they learned from the experience and wrote it down; and now I can access that wisdom to perhaps better understand our Coming Home Realty clients.
In life and in this business I broker in honesty. It’s important to me that clients see me as being honest because if they trust me I can better serve them and that is what real estate is all about for me. I don’t believe what I do is buy and sell; rather, I believe what I do is provide customer service.
I am careful about attending to people’s feelings, well-being, and happiness. One way this manifests with my clients is that I try to avoid using realtor terminology that might confuse them and I provide education they need to buy and sell their homes. I pride myself on slowing down when the situation calls for that, explaining, teaching, and most of all, listening carefully.
Every job Nick has done in his varied career has led to his work today at Coming Home Realty. He has worked as a case manager/advocate for adults with disabilities, a probation officer, a school counselor, football coach, and, since 2014, a real estate agent focusing on residential, land, and commercial sales.
As a buyer’s agent, Nick enjoys making successful matches, one reason why he has been a top volume producer in residential sales.
As a dad of four daughters, Nick is busy attending their activities but he also finds time to run on the Riverwalk and participate in outdoor sports such as biking and golf and also to serve on local non-profit boards. When he can be a connection for clients, he feels like he is given the privilege of participating in their bigger picture, their goals, which changes their lives. It is here where he finds personal meaning in his professional work.
With an M.A. in Counseling and several years experience as a counselor, I honed my skills to be able to read people well. I can sit with people and understand their personalities and how they want things done. Once I discern how they roll, their energy, their desires, I can better help them reach their goals. Sometimes this means I need to stretch further so I tailor my services accordingly. Clients have comfort knowing that I solve problems calmly.
Clients can trust that I am reliable. I do what I say I am going to do and I take my responsibilities seriously. I always work with a high moral standard which shows itself through the time I invest, my clear communication style, and thoroughness.
I recognize that success comes in small, consistent efforts and isn’t a one time deal. I understand the importance of persevering , doing things even when I might not want to, and chipping away at a challenge bit by bit to achieve an ultimate successful outcome.
A Colorado native, Dawn has over 38 years experience providing real estate services for clients. She specializes in residential, new construction, and land sales and she also is a full service broker for buyers. She has operated her own business as well as been affiliated with other real estate agencies.
Currently, in addition to taking care of her own clients, Dawn also trains and mentors new agents and does real estate business coaching. She strongly identifies with the coach/consultant role and uses it to help her clients as well. She sees being an agent, not as someone who puts transactions together, but as someone who educates, helps others set goals, create a plan, and then guides them through the process.
Dawn, who has a B.A. in Finance, is married and has one grown son. She enjoys traveling locally, camping, ATVing, wandering, fly fishing and one of her new interests is agility dog training and competitions.
This value shows up in my practice by me wanting my clients to get the very best they are capable of and I am committed to helping them do that. I set them up to think big, to set wider parameters, and to see all the options. Along the way, this means I push myself to be very creative to operate outside the traditional box and I maximize my own learning by being reflective on what happens and what I can take away to be better in the future.
When I come into a room, I draw energy to connect with everyone on a meaningful level. Woo, to me, means the glue, the mojo, the juju that puts everything together and that is what I do for people. When I leave a room, I know everyone because having woo enables me to have a flowing ability to join into relationships.
I’m not in the business of selling people things they don’t want or need. My skill is in coming alongside my clients, discerning their motivations, and helping them execute a plan to achieve their goals. This process requires a high level of activity – I raise people’s energy and mood and propel them forward because I am very interactive with them.
