Gary Hubbell Real Estate Agent

Gary Hubbell is a Colorado farm, ranch, resort, and luxury home broker based in the North Fork Valley, centrally located between Aspen, Telluride, and Crested Butte. "My license says 'The State of Colorado'", Gary says. He works the entire state, and has successfully brokered farms, ranches, and luxury homes in Rocky Ford and La Junta, Durango, Aspen, Steamboat Springs, Telluride, Granby, Marble, New Castle, Hotchkiss, Crawford, and many points in between. A native of western Colorado, Gary is a rancher and horseman and is an expert on water rights, agricultural properties, irrigation systems, horse farms, cattle ranches, and mountain hunting properties. A former wilderness outfitter and fly-fishing guide, Gary has a wealth of experience in hunting, fishing, and recreation properties.

Gary has helped many clients find their dream properties as a buyer's agent, and does a careful job of analyzing water rights and easements, access, production, quality of construction, recent market activity, and the various factors that assure his clients that they're making an informed purchase.

As a seller's agent, Gary does a thorough job of presenting a property with a very complete and accurate listing description, top-quality photography (Gary is a professional photographer), and a well-planned marketing program, including top website exposure. "Do I sell smaller properties?" Gary asks. "You bet, all the time in my local area, which is Hotchkiss, Paonia, Crawford, Cedaredge, Olathe, Delta, and Montrose. When it comes to larger properties, I will go anywhere in the state to list or sell a property."

Frequently Asked Questions

Make sure you have your financing lined up first. It's disappointing for everyone involved when a deal falls out of contract because you encountered a surprise in trying to get a loan. My real estate career, however, is centered around larger properties that require more knowledge than a typical house in a suburb. When buying larger properties, your broker should have strong knowledge of ranch production, water rights, grazing rights, climate zones, mineral rights, soils, construction techniques, easements, fencing--the list goes on!

Get your property looking good! Unclutter the home. You've already made the decision to move, so start boxing up personal things and getting them out of the way. Let the buyer see an uncomplicated picture. Overpricing is always hazardous. Study the market data and price it to sell it, and then defend that price in negotiations.

I've worked with a wide range of clients, ranging from first-time home buyers to very experienced investors. However, most of my buyers are mid-40's to early 60's, very qualified buyers who are looking to relocate to a dream property in the mountains. I find that most of my clients are pretty sharp people, because they have done the research to know that my skills and expertise are beyond that of the average real estate agent.

I just put a multi-million-dollar luxury ranch in southern Utah under contract. It took a solid week of negotiations between several parties. It's a fine balance between acknowledging the interests of each party and moving the deal forward. Ultimately all parties were satisfied and ready to move forward.

In 2007, we sold our outfitting business and moved out of the high mountains to bring our boys to school. Hotchkiss High School was great for them. I needed a new career and then I realized that all my experience of managing ranches, understanding water rights, hunting lands, and working in the recreation, skiing, and hospitality industries made for a great real estate background. I love what I do and I look forward to helping people.

I'm very close to achieving my Accredited Land Consultant (ALC) designation. That's a special designation for ranch and land brokers, certifying a high level of expertise in the sale of larger properties, ranches, and large tracts of land. I've taken courses in 1031 Exchange, mineral rights, water law, timber and forestry, orchard and vineyard production, mapping, marijuana law, and estate planning. I'm a Graduate Personal Property Appraiser and a graduate of the Texas Auction Academy. In addition to real estate, I've sold classic cars, antiques & collectibles, heavy equipment, farm equipment, furnishings, and even the former World Record American Elk antlers ($121,000!)
