Stan moved from Texas to Angel Fire in 1972 to work on the ski mountain and at the resort lake, learning to love the Moreno Valley. Enjoying his hobbies of skiing, fly-fishing, photography and travel, Stan realized he would stay in Angel Fire and decided to build his career in real estate. He joined the staff of Monte Verde Realty in 1979, became the qualifying broker in 1981 and the sole proprietor in 1987.
Stan is an alumnus of Texas Tech University with an emphasis in agriculture.
During his years of real estate brokerage, Stan has made mountain acreage, equestrian properties and recreational ranches his specialty.
Stan merged MONTE VERDE REALTY with Coldwell Banker Mountain Properties in May of 2019 in order to enhance his internet presence for his clients and to join a team of mountain real estate professionals.
His commitment to the community includes serving on the Board of Directors for the Angel Fire Chamber of Commerce and the Angel Fire Resort Property Owners Association. He has also served on the Colfax County Subdivision and Angel Fire Architectural Review committees. Stan served as President of the Angel Fire Community Foundation for over 20 years. He currently serves as Vice-President of the Angel Fire Community Foundation.
Stan is one of the best ranch realtors I know. He knows water rights. He knows people. He knows how to find out what he doesn’t know. He is a genuine pleasure to work with. Beyond that, when Victor Westphall and I and other members of the David Westphall Veterans Foundation negotiated reacquisition of the Vietnam Memorial in Angel Fire from Disabled American Veterans, which was consummated on Veterans’ Day in 1998, we needed an appraisal of the grounds and chapel and museum. Stan, who knows appraisal too, did it for us at no charge. I’ll never forget that.
