I became a Realtor because I love helping people make their dream of home ownership a reality, especially in Durango. I was fortunate enough to be born and raised here and can’t imagine a better place to own a home. I grew up playing soccer, raising Guide Dogs for the Blind and learning the importance of balancing work and hobbies. While attending Fort Lewis College, I took advantage of their Junior Trimester Abroad program and spent six months studying business in Europe. After earning my Bachelor’s Degree, I spent a summer in Minnesota working for Outward Bound. My time away from Durango was just the experience I needed to realize that this amazing, unique community is where I want to live, work and raise my family. I would love to listen to your story and help you see the benefits in buying or aid you in selling a home in the Durango Area!

Melanie has been wonderful to work with: from our sale of land in Costilla County, the purchase of a townhouse in Montrose County, the sale of our home in LaPlata County and continuing to find us our forever hobby farm North of Red Mountain Pass. We love working with her- she is forthright and vets out the right inspectors for the jobs. Appreciate you so much Melanie!

Melanie was extremely helpful in buying my first property. We worked together on and off for about 2 years trying to find a place that fit my needs, location and price in this tough current market. I finally found a place that met all my wants and Melanie helped me get it for a price that was much better than the initial listing. She was a great help working through the closing process and made things very easy for me even with in my hectic schedule at the time. Thank you again so much Mel!
