As true native of Grand County, Ehren’s experiences and lifestyle have always been oriented around the mountain lifestyle. Witnessing the development of our community from his elementary school years in Fraser to the present has given him a first-hand vision of things to come in the Fraser River Valley. Ehren is highly invested in our mountain community and plans on helping it to grow and improve for many years to come. Ehren has run a family outfitting business, operated as a co-owner of a fencing company since 2004, volunteered on the local fire department, and put time into his personal passions of carpentry and construction. I have become educated not only on the land and improvements on that land, but also on future prospects and the endless potential for many unique opportunities here in Grand County. Ehren’s quest to become more each day- more genuine, more educated, more personable- has led him to United Country- Gingery & Associates, where he hopes to work to make our community an even better place to live and play.
Brett is a fourth-generation resident of Grand County, Colorado. His knowledge of Middle Park and the surrounding areas of Winter Park, Granby, Fraser and Grand Lake is unrivaled. Brett was raised in the Real Estate industry. Both of Brett's parents were realtors and taught him the importance of honest, quality business dealings. Throughout his career, in many different areas of interest and industry, he never required marketing or advertising, relying solely on word of mouth to propagate his businesses. His father, Allen, always told him that “If you do good work you will never have to go looking for it.” This is how Brett has modeled his business dealings ever since.
Before venturing into Real Estate, Brett built log homes, worked for the UW meat sciences lab, found success in the forestry business, excavated roads/foundations/septic systems, performed river enhancements on the Fraser and Colorado rivers, as well as several pond rehab jobs. He has also worked in intrastate trucking, outfitting, research and design of mountain snowmobiles for Ski-Doo, and organizing estate auctions for Cookie Lockhartt in Steamboat.
In his free time, Brett enjoys volunteering for the Shining Stars Foundation. He also spends time greenhouse gardening, raising food animals, winemaking, yak rearing, mycology, and beekeeping. It is Brett's varied interests, obscure occupations, and deep understanding of life in the high Rockies that make him the perfect agent to help you find your ideal lifestyle property or working for you as a seller's agent to maximize the selling points you may not even realize that your property has!
