Bet hails from a small coastal town near Barcelona, Spain, and came to Crested Butte when she was only 16 as an international high school student. She met her husband, a Crested Butte local, during this time, and simultaneously fell in love with him and this beautiful slice of paradise they are lucky to call home. After attending Colorado State University and graduating Magna Cum Laude with a major in public relations and a minor in business, Bet was married in Crested Butte and moved to Denver, where she and her husband lived for five years while she worked as a RE/MAX real estate agent. All along, they dreamed of the day they would finally move back to Crested Butte, until they were able to make that dream a reality.

I have never met anyone who will work harder for a client than Bet. She is a wealth of knowledge and will stop at nothing to ensure she is putting her clients in the best position possible. Not only is she committed to complete customer satisfaction, she makes the process easy to understand and enjoyable! There is no one I would trust more with my home.Holly Wilson
Bet is AMAZING to work with! We worked with her on both sides of the process; buying our new home and selling our old one. She is very knowledgeable about real estate and she really listens to you as a buyer/seller and wants to make sure your needs are met. She helped us navigate some tricky situations with ease and we were able to count on her expertise and vast experience to sell our house (above asking!) in less than one week, and ultimately land us in our dream home! We truly had a wonderful experience with Bet as our realtor and the best part is we became friends in the process!Morgan Mulloy
I interviewed a couple realtors including Bet while starting my home buying process. After interviewing them, I asked them all the same question regarding one house. One didn’t respond, one responded with an ambiguous answer, and one responded immediately with a full in depth analysis attached to the answer. I chose Bet over family recommended Realtors because she had such genuine and timely responses to all my questions. This proved to be incredibly helpful during the entire home buying process considering this was my first time buying a home. I would 100% recommend using Bet for any home buying.TJ Huntington
We honestly can’t think of enough good things to say about Bet. Our situation was a bit unique - we were relocating due to a new career opportunity. We were working with a corporate relocation company. When we told Bet our timeline had moved up about 6 months, she didn’t flinch. She helped us strategize on when to list our house to ensure the best offer. We took Bet’s advice and listed our place a few weeks later. After just 1 weekend on the market, we received 4 offers all over list price! This was due to Bet’s knowledge of the market, staging, photography, and marketing. We were nervous selling our home going into winter, but Bet outperformed our expectations. Throughout the closing process we were dealing with numerous headaches from the relocation company up until the day of closing. Bet remained calm throughout the process and ensured that everything closed on time and without issue. We have already referred some friends to Bet. Couldn’t recommend her more. Extremely professional and strategic!Justin Felton
Bet is an incredible asset when looking to partner with a Realtor. She was attentive to our wants and needs, but also willing to give her professional opinion to help keep us advised in the right direction. She knows how to hustle and works hard to give you the best experience. I would highly recommend anyone to work with her - her personal touches to everything make you feel comfortable and confident in the work she does for YOU.Alyssa Riches
This was my first time selling a home. Bet was amazing! She worked with my timetable and made the process so easy! Bet was able to secure a top dollar price for the sale. She is always available and responds quickly to requests. She has even assisted me after the sale! If I had not moved out of state, I would have employed Bet to find a home for me to purchase. She is down to earth and has a great sense of humor. She always made me feel valued as a client. Thank you, Bet, that was so much fun!Mary Kay Hayes
