I thoroughly enjoyed what can be a radically stressful experience. Brett talked me off the ledge several times. I am considering buying more property just so I can hang with Brett again. He is a pro. There's many reasons he has been realtor of the year multiple times.
Brett never wanted to be a Realtor. As a kid, he wanted to be a fireman. A lion tamer. An astronaut. After receiving a Bachelor’s Degree in Journalism from Lehigh University in 1993, he moved to Jackson Hole for a job at a local newspaper. Twenty years later, Brett has thrice been recognized in JH Weekly’s annual poll as one of the “Best Real Estate Agents.” His peers awarded him the Realtor of the Year Award in 2008. In 2013, 2014 and 2016, he was the top-selling individual Realtor in the state of Wyoming for another national franchise. So how does a 20-year-old reporter turn into a 40-something-year-old Realtor? He hurts himself skiing. Takes a part-time job answering phones. Becomes the real estate company’s computer geek and marketing lackey. Learns what to do (and what not to do). Is offered a position as the broker for a private golf course community. It fails. He becomes one of the partners for the local RE/MAX brokerage, which is acquired by Jackson Hole Sotheby’s Int’l Realty in 2017.He fishes, golfs and does Honey-Do’s on the weekends. He met his wife in Jackson Hole in 1994. They have two kids, ages 7 and 10. And two dogs. He also serves on the board of a local non-profit organization. He’s a Realtor because he’s been lucky enough to build a life in this incredibly vibrant community. He really likes helping other people build lives in Jackson Hole too.
