I’m Jorge Gonzalez and have been a licensed real estate agent in Colorado since 2004 and have grown up in an entrepreneurial family that owns real estate investments, auto parts businesses, car washes, used car sales lots & an Arby’s franchise. I moved to Colorado in 1998 due to a love for Colorado’s mountains and more specifically Telluride, which has a very special place in my heart. Outside of real estate I love my 2 shelties Teddy & Macarthur, hiking 14ers, skiing and working out. I find maintaining balance in my life through exercise, work and the occasional trip to the mountains to go skiing, snowshoeing or hiking helps me maintain objectivity in everything I do as it’s very important to me to bring that to every aspect of my life and the relationships I’ve built. I went to the University of Colorado at Boulder and received a degree in Economics in 2004.
Real estate can mean different things to different people. For some the enjoyment of raising children in a comfortable house for years and watching them grow & develop memories is priceless. For others, downsizing to an urban condo surrounded by amenities from a large house can be your objective. While others may desire an investment in an asset that appreciates into a college fund or part of a retirement plan. On the other hand, the fear of experiencing turbulent times like what this country saw in it’s last recession is fresh in everyone’s minds and something everyone hopes doesn’t happen to them or others. I’ve been provided both the joy & turbulence of growing up in a real estate family and following my Dad’s footsteps for over 20 years now and experiencing it myself for the last 11 years. I’ve experienced all the roller coasters associated with this industry and how it can bring out emotions in the best of us.
Over the years, I’ve grown a real appreciation for the smart decisions my Father made when I was growing up and how it has benefited my family over the years based on all his hard work. As I’ve grown into my real estate career I’ve always wanted to live up to the same expectations to make my family proud and to help others achieve the their goals. In this day with all the technological advancements out there and how easy it is to see homes online & communicate with each other via social media, I want to focus on the ultimate objective. Why? It can be truly amazing how much information is out there via social media channels, the media, the internet, etc. How do you process everything? Who do you trust? Sometimes all these questions & information can be overwhelming, especially in such an important decision. As I’ve gained experienced, I’ve learned that having a proven process with systems in place to make buying or selling real estate less of a roller coaster ride is important. I’ve learned that utilizing these systems to their best capacities to place objectivity in a process that gets emotional and to help you achieve your goals & dreams is the greatest feeling. This is why I’m in real estate, because I want to help you bring objectivity to an emotional process and help you the way my family helped me.
If you have any questions about my process or systems and how I approach real estate to help you, please feel free to ask.
