About Us

Published by

Hi there,

I’m Jerry Henson and this is my, blah, blah, blog.

Actually it’s OUR blog. Yep, yours and mine.

I sincerely hope we will all enjoy the blog and that you will participate by reading and contributing. Hopefully it will give us all an insight to local news, views and gossip of the happenings here in Southern Colorado, from Cuchara to La Veta and the entire Huerfano Valley.  And will also provide timely information and general opinions on local and national Real Estate news and events.

So watch for my postings along with those of my wife Liz, the associate blogger. And we’ll both be watching for your postings too.  And see all of our real estate presentations and more by logging on to our website at www.lavetarealty.com

We moved to Southern Colorado from Steamboat Springs.  Being from Santa Fe, NM  before that, we were longing to get back south to a more temperate lifestyle and climate (450 in. of snow each year was finally getting to be a bit much for us). We had always liked small towns, friendly people and real estate. And we fell in love with the La Veta area of the Cuchara Valley.

After years in banking and investments, I may have now found another calling, in real estate.  In my tenth year here, I have consistently been a “Top Producer” in our area. I work full-time year round using my past experiences and contacts to better serve my clients. Personal recreation is more limited in the busy summer season, but I enjoy an occasional round of golf, trout fishing and riding our horses.

Areas of Expertise

I work primarily in rural land and ranch sales, as well as the medium to high-end country homes. Having lived in mountain resort areas before, I am familiar with the many aspects of rural mountain living. It’s a different kind of lifestyle and I relate to my clients in helping them find the property that will best suit their wants and needs.

Elevations, livestock, wells, fencing and wildlife, all become natural issues of importance to the rural property owners. My knowledge of  Colorado conservation easements, financing options, water rights and minerals are becoming more important every day. I enjoy helping buyers sift through these important issues.  Look me up whenever you want to discuss country properties here in southern Colorado.

    Hi –
    I just found your website blog – when i was searching for who owned the Echo Canyon Guest Ranch – that i seen it marked that way – on a satellite image – that i was looking at the Spanish Peaks Mountains area.
    I did not check your whole website yet. I clicked on where it said About Us – to see if i could find the information i was looking for. An then seen down below – Leave a Reply.
    I got a couple different Questions here below –
    Can anyone rent a cabin there by you all – or possibly not ?
    Are there people still prospecting out there at the peaks – looking for the Spaniard Campsite or their Lost Gold Mine – or Possibly not ?
    An do you know of any Legends regarding these Spaniards that were out here hundreds of years ago ?
    Thanks Much – if you can reply.
    ~ Ed
