Local Colorado Realtor

I’m Barbara Mate, and I’m proud to be a dedicated real estate professional serving the stunning Montezuma and La Plata County areas. My journey began in Hungary, but I moved to the United States when I was just seven years old. This gave me the incredible opportunity to experience different landscapes and cultures, eventually leading me to discover the rugged beauty of southwest Colorado, which I now proudly call home.

Before entering the world of real estate, I embarked on a career in healthcare. For nearly a decade, I worked as an X-ray technician in both San Francisco and Florida. This experience equipped me with invaluable skills in communication, empathy, and attention to detail – qualities that have become integral to my identity as a realtor.

Construction & Property Management Experience

My fascination with construction led me to pursue studies in Building Construction at the University of Florida. This educational background deepened my understanding of the structural aspects of properties, proving to be immensely beneficial when evaluating homes’ potential and value. With this knowledge, I guide my clients with confidence and precision.

Through three years of hands-on experience in property management, I gained a profound insight into property dynamics, tenant relationships, and the inner workings of homeownership in our region.
