Meet The Team

Alan Strange, Broker/Owner

Alan was born in Boulder, Colorado, and raised in Ft. Myers, Florida, on the gulf coast. While growing up in Florida he worked as a paramedic, and continued to vacation in Colorado taking advantage of the skiing season during the winters and the hiking weather during the summers.
After marrying in 1997, Alan and his wife Heidi moved back to Colorado in 2000.  Since then, they have had 3 children, two boys and a girl. Family is vitally important to Alan so it only makes sense that he is now able to help other families with their Real Estate dreams.

Alan started buying and selling real estate shortly after moving back to Colorado.  First working with his family’s mortgage company and then obtaining his Broker’s license in 2004. Working with Keller Williams has given him the freedom to help others with all of their real estate needs.  His background and experience give clients the best possible experience when buying or selling a home.  In an office of over 160 agents Alan and his team are annually in the top 5 of top producers and are in the top 1% of agents nationwide.
