Aaron first stepped foot in Durango in 1990 and relocated to Durango in 1996. Now some 23 years later, Aaron brings a wealth of local knowledge fueled by his love of the mountains. All though Aaron is a born and raised Chicagoan, he was drawn to the outdoor life at an early age. He’s spent a great deal of time traveling in Canada as well as the western & northern United States to feed the need to be in the great outdoors. When Aaron first saw Southwestern Colorado, in all its beauty, was during one of his cross-country motorcycle tours, he instantly knew that this was the place to live life to the fullest and raise a family with a quality of life rarely seen anywhere.
In 1996, after a very successful career in the fine dining side of the Chicago restaurant scene, he made the switch from the hustle and bustle of big city life…to the charming small-town energy of Durango. Aaron continued to enjoy great success in the Durango restaurant scene, soon becoming widely considered one of the best Bar Operators and Mixologists in the Four Corners Area. Aaron’s 25 plus years providing the benchmark in great service for fine dining clients has prepared him well for a career in real estate. Aaron now works with his beautiful wife (and fellow real estate broker) Sherry Exum-Peterson as a team here at the Wells Group.
When not helping people fulfill their dreams of “the perfect life” in Durango, you can find Aaron enjoying the many recreational opportunities of the area with his wife and their dogs. These activities are predominantly outdoors and include fly fishing, hiking, mountain biking, climbing, motorcycling, four wheeling, camping in the backcountry and bow hunting. Aaron is a hands-on and involved member of many outdoor conservation groups such as Trout Unlimited and the Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation.
As a 23-year resident of Durango, Aaron is very tuned into the mountain lifestyle. His firsthand knowledge coupled with years of experience in the real estate industry with his wife Sherry, make Aaron and Sherry Exum-Peterson the best choice to assist you with all your real estate needs. Whether buying or selling residential, commercial, agricultural, or investment property, they are your go-to resource here in Southwest Colorado. After helping his wife Sherry raise two (now grown) children here in Durango, Aaron has a firm grasp on how special life in the Colorado Rockies truly is and his passion for the area is infectious! When moving your life to Colorado or moving away from Colorado, he knows the ins and outs to make your move as smooth as possible.
