Experience: I have been a licensed Broker at The Wells Group since 2008. I joined the firm as a full-time Assistant to one of the Owners, Jim Wotkyns. I support Jim in working with Buyers and Sellers through a smooth real estate transaction, along with helping Jim with business operations. I stay current on issues in our industry through continuing education courses, such as water rights, radon mitigation, short-sales, and reverse mortgages. I earned my professional designation as CNE (Certified Negotiation Expert). As a former computer instructor, I am the “techie” on our team.
Awards: My first year with The Wells Group I was extremely privileged to receive our Spirit Award for exemplifying teamwork. Then in 2013, I was honored by my peers by receiving our company’s Excellence Award, given to an individual in our organization committed to continuous improvement, a high-standard of excellence, and personal sharing of all education and best practices on behalf of our entire group. I’m grateful to be a member of this professional team and believe that if you do good things for good people the rewards will follow.
Community and Home Life: As a resident of La Plata County since 2000, I hand-picked Durango as the mountain community where I wanted to live, play and raise a family after living in other areas of Colorado since 1990. I now have a young son in grade school, who loves to explore the region with me by snow skiing, hiking, camping, and participating in various sports and family activities around town. I am enthusiastic about promoting Durango as an ideal community for an active lifestyle with quick access to the mountains and desert. I know our area well having worked at the Durango Chamber of Commerce and Tourism Office.
Prior to entering the real estate field, I worked for the American Cancer Society as their Quality of Life Manager to assist patients and their families with treatment related tasks. Once licensed as a real estate broker, I knew there was only one firm in Durango where I wanted to work – The Wells Group. Our firm’s reputation, community involvement and leader in the marketplace SOLD me. I was also a client of The Wells Group when I bought and sold my homes…something I would definitely recommend to you.
