Durango REALTOR® Ryan Poppe is unrelenting in his pursuit to serve his clients by finding buyers that perfect home, or by finding that perfect buyer for his sellers.
That determination, together with his no-pressure approach, his attention to the details of his clients' "want" lists, his availability, his sense of humor, and his willingness to always do just a bit extra has rewarded him with an impressive list of clients who recommend him without hesitation.
Buyers, especially those who are relocating and have limited time, appreciate Ryan for his skill in understanding their needs and researching the market to speed their home search. However, if that "just right" home isn't immediately available, he has the patience to continue searching. Helping clients achieve their real estate goals is Ryan's number one priority, whether a home is valued at $100,000 or $1 million. As a result, he has assisted in the purchase and sale of homes in every price range.
Ryan remodeled and renovated his first home himself. That experience provided insight and knowledge that he's happy to share with buyers who are planning improvements after closing, and with sellers wishing to make improvements before listing their homes for sale.
Although the purchase or sale of real estate is serious business, Ryan believes it should also be a pleasant experience. Thus, he makes it a point to inject humor into the process. Clients say working with Ryan is not just productive, it's fun.
A graduate of Fort Lewis College in Durango, Colorado, Ryan's first sales positions were with Ski Barn and Directory Plus, both in Durango. In 2013, he and his wife, Katie, a Durango native, moved to Nashville, Tennessee, where he became a successful REALTOR®. He completed 35 transactions totaling $8 million in sales in 2014. He was the top agent of RE/MAX Elite’s Ashton Real Estate Group and served as a mentor to several new agents. The birth of their first child in 2015 prompted a return to Durango and the purchase of their new home in the Dalton Ranch community. They believe Durango is the best place to raise their child and to enjoy their favorite pastimes, including golfing, fly-fishing, and cross-country skiing with their white Lab, Rosetta.
