About Robin Williams
What could be better than combining my real estate profession with my “horse habit”?…Robin Williams
As a third generation Coloradoan, I have a strong love for my state and all that it offers. In 1956 my mother and father started a dude ranch outside of the little town of Mancos located about 30 minutes from Durango. While I was growing up I was fortunate enough to spend a good part of my summers at the ranch. Trail riding and moving cattle with local ranchers in the surrounding mountains instilled a love for the area and a passion for horses.
My involvement with horses continued to grow throughout my adult life. I have had the pleasure of participating in many disciplines ranging from competitive trail riding, to saddle seat, pleasure driving and dressage.
Throughout my early years I was mostly surrounded by ranch and quarter horses. As a teenager I was introduced to the Morgan breed and have been strongly involved with them ever since.
Now, my husband Stan and I live 6 miles east of the small town of Bayfield (20 miles from Durango) on a 95 acre horse property. We own and operate Snowoods Morgan farm, a small Morgan breeding operation with approximately 10 horses, comprised of our breeding stallion, several broodmares and a variety of young stock.
Over the years, we have purchased a number of horse properties. This can be a frustrating process unless you are working with a knowledgeable broker who understands the unique requirements of horse owners. As the only horse property specialist in the Durango area it is my pleasure to combine my real estate experience with my horse knowledge. In the durangohorseproperties.com website I have tried to provide a variety of resources for horse people. Along with information on buying and selling horse properties in the Four Corners area there is also general information for area horse people. My goal is to make this website a resource for the entire local horse community. We will continue to make additions and updates on an ongoing basis.
Your comments and suggestions are greatly appreciated so feel free to contact me with them or just to “talk horses”. Of course if you are in the market to buy and/or sell horse property I would love the opportunity to work with you.
About Rebecca Balboni
Rebecca knew from the moment she first arrived in Durango in 2002 that this was the community for her. From the friendly people, the breathtaking landscape, to the 300 average days of sun and limitless opportunities for outdoor recreation, landing in Durango was a grand slam.
Creating community and developing meaningful relationships is of the utmost important to Rebecca. She loves meeting new people, hearing their stories, and finding out what makes them tick. She is a firm believer in the saying, “the people make the place” and nowhere is that more true than Durango, CO!
Rebecca is a dedicated advocate for protection of property rights and serves as the Realtor Political Action Committee Chair and on the Durango Association of Realtors Government Affairs Committee.
When not in the office, Rebecca can be found on the ski hill, on a hike or bike ride, paddle boarding around one of our gorgeous lakes, riding one of her two horses, or competing in agility and barn hunt with her border terrier, Twizzle. She is also active in the local equestrian community. She serves as president of the board of the Four Corners Dressage and Combined Training Association, the parade coordinator for the Durango Cowboy Poetry Gathering, and is an active member of the Four Corners Backcountry Horsemen.
Rebecca is a certified Real Estate Negotiation Expert and designated Seller’s Representative Specialist. Her commitment to ongoing training, professionalism, integrity, enthusiasm for the Durango area, creativity, and keen problem-solving skills fuel results!
Born September of 2017, Twizzle has been in real estate his entire life. Twizzle wears quite a few hats and his roles of Chief of Comic Relief, PR Director, Content Generation Manager, and Head of Paper Shredding keep him plenty busy around the office. Though his work ethic is unmatched, Twizz still makes time to unwind by patrolling for rats in the barn, chasing geese out of the pasture, and finding all the best sun puddles for napping. Twizzle is an active member of the Durango Kennel Club, competes in Barn Hunt and Nosework, and is currently training for competitive agility. Here he his with his sidekick and team transaction coordinator, Romeo.
