Shannon Thomason, REALTOR®


“I have found my calling!  I love people, I love Colorado, and I love homes.  My job allows me to blend all of these in a way that brings me and the people I work with, great joy!”


After earning her Bachelor’s degree in Economics from the University of Washington, Shannon began her real estate career working in Property Management for a luxury condominium conversion company in Tacoma, WA.  She took a pause in her career when she married her husband and spent time raising their three children.  As a Marine Corps family, Shannon understands the unique situation of a military move.  Often times, military moves don’t go as seamless as planned.  In every transaction, Shannon has a keen ability to adapt quickly and present optimal solutions all while maintaining the utmost professionalism.  


Born in Alaska and raised in Washington State, Shannon appreciates the beauty of snow capped mountains.  While the Marine Corps kept her family in Southern California for many years, she yearned to return to the sight of the mountains.  Within the first month of living in Colorado, she immediately knew she found her forever home.  She is energized by the local growth and makes it her business to know about all of the development and revitalization in the local market.  


Shannon understands that the value of a home doesn’t stop at the curb.  She believes that everyone has a unique story to tell and that includes where you live. She listens intently to your story to learn exactly what you are looking for, not only in a home, but in a lifestyle.  


For Shannon, being a Realtor isn’t “sales,” it’s fulfilling one’s lifestyle and the desire to find “home.”
