“Jana Rocks! We met Jana Barrett in the spring of 1997 as we began our search for our Colorado vacation home. It was our 15th year to go on a snow skiing vacation with our family and friends -- the vast majority of those years in Crested Butte. Jana was very thorough in showing us various properties that fit our budget and desired amenities….Over the ensuing years, we would request and Jana would cheerfully provide to us all kinds of information while keeping up with local Crested Butte & Gunnison County real estate news. Occasionally we would "get the itch" for change, and Jana was always available and graciously showed available properties. In the summer of 2014, Jana helped our son find his future home as he relocates to Crested Butte from Germany. While maintaining her professional integrity, Jana has wisely and realistically advised and counseled us. Needless to say, Jana IS the Harper Family Crested Butte Realtor!!” Max & Ellen Harper | Kerens, Texas
