Managing Broker

I grew up in Cooperstown, NY, and have been a Colorado resident since 1998. I found Pagosa Springs in 2006 and as I stepped my foot on the ground in Pagosa the 1st time I said, “We are moving,” and we absolutely love it here!!! I live to be in the outdoors and appreciate everything that Pagosa Springs has to offer people that have a passion for the mountain lifestyle. I truly love helping clients find the perfect property and then I get the benefit of seeing them enjoy the properties they have bought. I have been blessed as so many of my friends started out as clients that I now get to enjoy life with. That’s Pagosa, the sunshine, the great outdoors, the most beautiful place on earth, amazing weather, unlimited adventure, and the highest quality people you will ever find. I challenge you to find a better place to live.

Before I moved into Real Estate full time, I had over a decade of experience in the lending industry that was built on dedication to providing unparalleled customer service, sound advice, and an easy-going no pressure approach. This is a unique approach that my clients find as a refreshing change from the normal Realtor.

I am a member of the Pagosa Springs Area Association of Realtors, Realtors Land Institute, Local Archery Club, Member of the local Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation, Trout Unlimited, and Member and supporter of the San Juan Back Country Horseman. I enjoy camping, hunting, fly fishing, hiking, horseback riding, flying, snowboarding, snowmobiling and off-roading with ATV’s and my Jeep.

I am a licensed Realtor in Colorado with more than 20 years of experience in the Real Estate industry. Aside from helping you with all of your Real Estate needs, I tend to our mini ranch of 4 beautiful horses, 5 duckies, a flock of crazy chickens, 1 fat little bunny rabbit, our loving dogs, Max and Daisy and our newly acquired kitty cat with the help of my husband, my daughter, and my mother. Relaxing by the river, listening to the water flow while watching my crazy critters is one of my favorite places to be!

My clients appreciate my ability to work efficiently while providing prompt, professional, personal, and dedicated service. I communicate directly, listen closely, and always put my customer's needs first. I understand the importance of working with an agent who will have your best interest at heart.

Working with Mike Knapp and the Best of Pagosa Springs, I am supported by a company that understands the customer's needs in a dynamic and rapidly changing real estate environment, which enables me to offer unprecedented real estate services to home buyers and sellers. If you are looking to sell, we are there with a professional photographer, premier placement on multiple websites, correct MLS Placement and a whole list of tools and advice to help you get from For Sale to "SOLD!!"

Living in Pagosa Springs is a dream come true for myself and my family. We love taking advantage of the thousands of acres of National Forest while hiking, horseback riding, hunting, fishing, skiing, sledding and exploring!

I would love the opportunity to help you, your family, your friends and acquaintances make your dreams come true!

Born and raised in Colorado my husband and I stumbled upon Pagosa Springs and we made the move here shortly after! We now have our son Wilder who has gravitated to the outdoors and all Pagosa has to offer, like we knew he would :)

I grew up around Real Estate. My mother was a top producer in Colorado for over 35 years and my oldest sister is currently working in the industry as well. I have owned my own business for over a decade; great customer service, honesty & reliability are the foundation. I understand how important any real estate transaction is, a house becomes a home and land becomes YOUR slice of paradise. Exceeding my client’s expectations is my priority. I am a part of the Team at Best of Pagosa Springs and we all strive to bring a higher level of service to all our clients and it shows as we are constantly the highest rated and most reviewed company in Pagosa Springs and even the nation!

When I’m not helping my clients achieve their Real Estate Goals I enjoy being with my family and friends and taking part in everything outdoorsy; snowboarding, hiking, dirt biking, fishing, boating, camping and exploring the sensational forests and wilderness that surround this hidden gem called- Pagosa Springs, Colorado.

My name is Kevin Blue. I grew up in Pagosa Springs and was raised to love everything about the mountain lifestyle. I attended Metro State University in Denver and Fort Lewis in Durango where I studied business. Prior to Real Estate I worked at Wolf Creek Ski Area for 9 years as a groomer/heavy equipment operator and was in charge of safety and training for my department. I parted from the ski area 1 year ago and started my real estate career and have enjoyed learning and building new relationships. I have used my knowledge of SW Colorado and strong work ethic to better serve my clients. I continue to enjoy snowboarding, snowmobiling, kayaking, playing hockey and all things outdoors. I have a lovely wife, Sunshine, and two amazing children, Hazel and Elam. I am committed to my community and enjoy making strong and lasting relationships with all those I come into contact with. I am excited to be your guide in finding your perfect property and to help you with all of your real estate goals.

Shane grew up in Broken Arrow, Oklahoma where he excelled in both academics and athletics. He attended college at Oklahoma State University and graduated in 2005 with a Bachelors in Business Administration.

After college he went to work for Bechtel, the #1 global engineering and construction firm. Over the next 13 years he held various roles in both procurement and subcontracts while steadily ascending the corporate ladder to his most recent position as project subcontracts manager where his department was responsible for an annual budget/spend of more than $200M. While working for Bechtel, Shane lived and worked in Oklahoma, Colorado, India, Washington, Australia, Kentucky & New Mexico. He had the privilege of working with and on behalf of some of the industry giants in the sectors of defense, nuclear waste remediation, and oil, gas & chemicals.

During this time, he used every dollar he could save to acquire a portfolio of rental properties and land in Oklahoma and Colorado. In doing so he realized his passion was identifying value in real estate and negotiating to maximize that value at closing, which is perfectly complemented by the fact that he is a cost/price analyst, a proven negotiator and a contracts expert by trade. In 2017, he obtained his Colorado Broker’s Associate License and the following year he resigned from corporate-life to make the move to Pagosa Springs, an area which he considers the most underrated market in Colorado, to be a full time real estate professional.

Shane’s incredible work ethic and professionalism have enabled him to discover instant success and he enjoys nothing more than delivering value to his clients. So whether you’re looking for a home, ranch, rental, commercial business space or your own private mountain, Shane will make your objective his priority and deliver for you.

In Shane’s personal time, he can usually be found playing in the mountains with his partner Julie and son Wiley. Shane is a powder skiing enthusiast who has skied throughout the west and in more than a dozen countries. He is also a fisherman, a hunter and a dog guy.
