Heart at work

• Sees what is, knows what’s possible, makes it happen.
• Lives to nurture others’ dreams.
• Hides the dirty work, fends off the meanies – all her clients see is grace.


A master marketer, BJ founded this company upon on her favorite question: What if? And Aspen real estate has never been the same. A bold, original thinker, perpetually nourished by new ideas and possibilities, BJ has relished tossing out expected ways of doing business for a more caring, exciting model. She inspires and directs the marketing that sets this company apart – and with a strong, sure voice that treats properties as individuals, earns national industry awards, and brings buyers and sellers to our clients. At the pinnacle of a career that spans a billion dollars in sales and 3,000 closings, the only number BJ considers invaluable are the 10,000 hours she devoted to gaining the wisdom and unrivaled expertise she shares with her clients today.
BJ still dreams about ways to raise the bar and make you smile. Beyond listener, she’s an anticipator. Good chance she’ll have it before you know you want it. But, ask her for her secret to success, and she’ll immediately redirect you to her team – a loyal bunch of top-tier brokers who all believe agent/client relationships should be based on true listening, impeccable service, and never letting go of the backs of others who trust you.
