I love this valley with all of its activities and mild climate. I am a native son of Salida.
Working with Wes and Nancy Hill is an experience in integrity and being straight forward. This is also true of my fellow agents and the office personnel.
Growing up in this great valley has allowed me to have a strong ranch background. My family owned a ranch west of Salida until I was nine years old, then I finished growing up by spending many hours and days on the Vandeveer ranch east of town. I have a first hand working knowledge of water rights and I am familiar with many of the rights in this valley.
While in high school I worked in retail, which gave me a good background to later work for a major retail outlet and to eventually own and operate, along with my wife Frankie, our own retail store. After high school I attended Adams State college for three years majoring in just college. However, any education is helpful.
Later I started building custom homes and have owned and operated my building company for the past 16 years. This, in conjunction with working for Wes Hill & Associates, for nearly three years has been a good experience. The two industries go hand and hand and the experience in custom building really helps with insight into real estate.
My two children have graduated school and now my grandchildren are close to graduating from the same Salida schools for which I have enjoyed spending six years on the Board of Education. I was active in and still participate in many of our schools programs. I have an unwavering belief that education for our youth is paramount in this world and should never be allowed to struggle financially or morally backslide.
With the ranch, retail, and building backgrounds, along with a lifetime of hiking, hunting, fishing, four wheeling and golfing enjoyment in Chaffee County, I feel I can especially help with all your real estate desires. Let me guide and help you to achieve what ever goal you have in Salida and the surrounding area, and make your dreams come true. Thank you in advance for allowing me to be of service to you and your family.
