Hello, I'm Wes Hill. I grew up in Houston, Texas, and the reason I work at Wes Hill & Associates is because I own the place.
I spent some time in Dallas/Fort Worth in commercial real estate. I was back in Houston in 1980 and received a call from someone I had been associated with in Dallas. He asked if I remembered the property in Colorado he had purchased in 1972. He said he wanted to develop it and would I be interested in moving to Colorado. I told him I had only been there once but I'd take a look. Nancy and I flew into Chaffee County with him, spent four days and said “let's do it.” We were here permanently January 1981 and will never live anywhere else.
The development my associate was talking about (Mesa Antero) went well. Realizing that it would sell out some day, we got an opportunity to buy the Century 21 franchise in 1985. I've worked with clients from across the world, in Saudi Arabia, Berlin, Germany, Caribbean and all over the United States. My philosophy is that property will sell itself in Chaffee County. Once you see this beautiful place, you will want to own a piece of it. We have enjoyed everyone and everything we experience here and in the real estate business.
Some of my best friends today are people I would never have met if I were not in the business.
My clients, my employees, and my associates give me a reason to look forward to every day. I look forward to being of service to you and making a new friend.
"Wes - I've really appreciated the relationship our family has had with you. My mother always had a very warm recollection and telling of how you updated her and the way you treated her. I'll never forget you driving Mom, my sister and me to the back pond 5 years ago and the eagle that soared between us and the peaks. I've enjoyed getting to know you better the last several years and your down-to-earth manner - and your dogged persistance in helping our family sell the ranch off for over the past decades. In appreciateion." Christian Meuli
"Wes - Like this tree you have always been there, hanging in there even at the edge. You are solidly rooted and survive the storms and droughts. Your steadfast friendship through the years has meant much to all of us. It is appreciated. We want to express our gratitude." Rick Angell
Martin Miler, a client said of Wes “In over 40 years while engaging in extensive financial transactions, I have not experienced as effectual an individual as you are. Your knowledge, abilities, organization, selling skills, integrity and resourcefulness are singularly outstanding. While getting the job done in a truly superior fashion, you are invariably thoughtful, considerate and pleasant.”
"Wes - We appreciate all you have done for us during this whole process. You are #1 in our opinion! Your staff is great! Best Regards, Marci & Bill Strang"
"Wes - I wanted to express my thanks and gratitude for the help you and your associates displayed recently. You truly run an association of integrity and character. You give realtors a good name and I wish there were more out there like you. I will highly recommend you to friends and family, and I hope I can return the favor in the future. Thank you again for the time and effort displayed on your part. Indebted and Thankful, Justin Anderson"
