Tracy Pine Purdy
Owner / Office Manager

Tracy brings insight and a wealth of knowledge to the business. With a PR degree with a focus in Marketing from Texas Tech University and experience managing a four-star property in Vail, she is the team’s lead creative consultant and leasing assistant. Tracy is passionate about helping clients market and sell their properties. She utilizes an array of technologies and a customized approach to each property to build diverse and successful marketing campaigns.

 

For Tracy, real estate is much more than a transaction. When she isn’t helping clients manage and sell their homes, she can be found cooking meals for friends and family.

Kyle Weed
Associate Broker

I am a long time Leadville Realtor and investor.  I own numerous historic residential rental properties in Leadville.  I also own a few multi-family buildings.  I am very familiar with what is involved with owning a primary or second home here.  One of my top tips: “Don’t let the mudsill foundations scare you away from buying a house with one.”

 

My background is in advertising and marketing.  I owned a promotion agency in Minneapolis for 15 years.  Before that I sourced the in-package promotional toys for General Mills, “the toys in the box”.  I started in real estate fix and flips in the 1990’s and went from there, evolving into a nice rental business.  My specialty has always been in Victorian era houses, in Minnesota, Wisconsin as well as Colorado.

 

In my free time I enjoy skiing, cycling, hiking and traveling.  One of my goals is to climb every high point you can see from town, there are roughly 160.  I’m just over half way there.  Skiing is what brought me to the area and I am fortunate to be able to do a lot of it.  Leadville is a fantastic place to be for all outdoor activities.

 

Shenan Pordon
Licensed Personal Assistant

Shenan is Andrew’s younger sister. She comes to us from Denver where she has been a licensed real estate broker for just over 2 years. She has a passion for real estate and knows the market well. Her many years in customer service show how dedicated she is to helping our clients find their perfect home.

 

Shenan also owns a residential/commercial cleaning company that keeps her busy from Leadville to Denver. Green Diamond Clean uses all natural, plant based products that are safe for your family and the environment. In fact, we use her company for all of our vacation rentals as well as new listings.

 

In her free time, Shenan volunteers at the Lake County Animal Shelter as well as fosters homeless dogs in transition to their forever home. She enjoys hikes with her dog, Spaz and going to the gym.
