I started visiting Colorado in 1996 and in 1998 moved to the beautiful western slope.  I moved from southern Virginia, and upstate New York,  where I had a farm and  raised Registered Polled Hereford breeding stock and 4 daughters.  I was also working as an Employment Counselor for the State of Virginia and later as a retail manager and trainer for large retail chain. After my 4 daughters graduated from college my itchy foot took over and I came West, traveling and camping extensively and finally settling in Ridgway. 


Decided to become a Realtor. I started selling subdivisions, mainly, and learning how to build a house and infrastructure. I met so many wonderful people and just felt as if I found the career that completely suited me. After 2 years I became a Broker/Owner of my own company.  Have been doing that ever since except for a 7 year stint as broker for Keller Williams.  I have successfully done over 500 deals since getting my license. New construction came to a screeching halt in 2007 so I expanded my business to include resales, vacant land, some commercial, and small ranches. 


During my years as Realtor I have served as President of local MLS, Treasurer of Regional MLS, President and State Representative for Montrose Association of Realtors, and Instructor for American Dream Real Estate School.  I am now Broker/Owner of Phelps Real Estate Group with 13 Broker Associates all with experience, honesty, knowledge, and caring.
