Michael S. Dunn
Michael Dunn is the Owner and Managing Broker of Roaring Fork Property. He has been working and playing in the Roaring Fork Valley for the last 18 years. From living like a “Ski Bum” in Snowmass Village, to living, working and investing in real estate in Basalt, to now creating a home for his family in Glenwood Springs – Michael has experienced much of what this valley has to offer! His detailed knowledge of the area from Aspen to New Castle is a tremendous asset.
Michael is originally from Northern Wisconsin and maintains the same strong work ethic he was brought up with. After achieving a Bachelor of Science degree from the University of Wisconsin – Madison, Michael immediately relocated to the breathtaking Colorado Mountains that he loves. Since that time, Michael has been continually adding to his sales experience. Whether managing a ski shop in years past, selling homes for builders or negotiating short sales, Michael believes that all sales require honesty, integrity and trust, and he is willing to put in the work to make sure that those values are not over-looked.
As an Accredited Buyers Representative, Michael is also specifically trained to fulfill the needs of buyers, and has the local knowledge needed to make sure the home buying experience is not only successful, but also enjoyable. “There is no reason why buying and selling a home shouldn’t be fun.”
In his free time, Michael can be found skiing on one of our world-class slopes with his wife and two children, or kayaking on one of our world-class rivers. Please feel free to contact Michael about any real estate questions you may have, or just to find out the best spots to play!
