Local real estate agent loves her life and work on Wright’s Mesa

Linda Avery is a real estate broker in the Norwood area who is working to support those in this region, which she says has much to offer in terms of resorts and recreation. She’s been listing and selling properties here on Wright’s Mesa for the last 17 years — since she and her husband Doug moved to town from the Washington, DC area.

She prides herself in helping people to locate or sell the right piece of property, whether that be a ranch, mountain land, a lakefront property, a house or condo.

Linda is an active participant in the Telluride Association of Realtors and the Montrose Association of Realtors, and she is an Accredited Land Consultant through the Realtors Land Institute. She said with her affiliation in these groups, she is able to continue her work in promoting Wright’s Mesa overall, and specific listings too.

Her marketing outreach includes in-person broker-to-broker promotion, extensive internet promotion and selected print advertising.

She enjoys her career.

“What I love in real estate here is the diversity of property I can offer to buyers, from smaller land parcels and homes to very large tracts of land and larger ranches. There is something for everyone to come enjoy the lovely area,” she said. “In working with my sellers, I am so passionate about marketing what their unique property (and everyone here does have a unique piece!) can offer in the beauty of both their specific location and concept, as well as the general area.”

With more than 30 years of consultative sales and international experience, she has lived and worked in the U.S., Western Europe and Asia. She speaks English, French and German, and has an MBA in International Management.

In addition to her real estate work, Linda is a class agent for The American School in Switzerland, on the board for the Uncompahgre Medical Center in Norwood, active in the Telluride Rotary Club and is a member of the Norwood Chamber of Commerce.

She’s been a chamber member since 2002 and was the past chamber president from 2002-2006.

She and her husband love what Wright’s Mesa has to offer.

“It’s such a beautiful and tranquil place to be,” she said. “Every day the beautiful mountain, lake, valley and plateau vistas are just incredible, and change with the season. I have never been in another location that offers up such (almost daily) vibrant sunrises and sunsets.”

Linda said the abundant wildlife also make the Norwood area special. Outdoor activities are also something they cherish.

“Virtually every day of the year offers some great outdoor activity: from the winter cross-country skiing and snowmobiling, to the hiking, biking, boating and horseback riding most of the year,” she said. “The town of Norwood, right in the center of Wright’s Mesa, offers so much.”

She said Norwood offers beauty and serenity with access to important amenities, and while other important attractions and services are close by in larger, surrounding towns.

Linda also said she’s proud of what the Norwood Chamber of Commerce is now accomplishing. That includes participating in town beautification efforts and increasing Norwood’s exposure to the world.
