About Dean

Connecting Buyer and Sellers - Steamboat Springs Real Estate

Buyers Representation - Different types of people present various challenges. A common thread I've found among my clients is that no matter how bright, successful and/or artistically talented they are, buying real estate goes a lot smoother with the help from a of a local Broker.  

I'm here to conquer any questions, fears, or ideas you may have. My market reports, construction knowledge, eye for Steamboat styles and trends along with my history living in Steamboat Springs is all knowledge available for you to tap into. This is stuff Zillow just can't help you with. Ask Dean  by calling 970-846-8284. 

Many of my clients include doctors, lawyers, company owners, contractors, and commercial / residential real estate brokers from other areas, but knowing what you do or where you are from isn't why I may want to work with you.

I like to work with those who love Steamboat Springs for its smaller town, friendly people, Champagne powder®, single-track trails, open meadows, forests, rivers and Western culture. If you are ready to slow down the pace a bit and enjoy the outdoors, we'll get along just fine.

Sellers Representation - If you are looking to make a move and shopping for a listing broker, Colorado Group Realty has a proven successful track record with #2 in sales volume and a primary goal to be #1 in service. 

I rarely have more than 5 listings at a time because what I list usually sells. I put 100% into the marketing of every listing.

And I have help - My wife, Michelle Ideus, brings her artistic skills for fantastic staging and photography and I bring 20 years of sales, building and technical experience.  We also have a drone for some exciting fly by photography and video.

More About Me

I just may qualify as a local Realtor - my mom and dad bought their 1st home in Steamboat Springs in the 60s and I’ve been selling real estate in Steamboat since 1999.

My wife, Michelle Ideus  is a local artist and our son Nolan, now 10 not only loves school and soccer but also trains at Howelsen Hill with hopes of becoming the next Steamboat Olympian.  Our town offers so many great opportunities for kids along with a top rated school system, Nolan is fortunate his dad can't give up on his ski bum ways and he gets to grow up a Steamboat kid. 

Professional History

I obtained a Bachelor of Science Degree in Industrial Technology with a engineering certification from Colorado State University. My work history ranged from building and selling fishing boats in the Florida Keys in late 80s, Chef  in the Columbia River Gorge in the 90s, and mechanical contractor installing in-floor heating systems in the late 90s. How does that play into real estate sales? Well, I certainly know my way around a kitchen, I have skills to build an efficient heating system and through my years of building homes and boats, I can assist a Buyer separate the  “okay” houses from an exceptional home.

I’ve held my Real Estate license since 1995 but my desire to build things rather than sell things kept me from taking on Real Estate as a full time job until I joined Colorado Group Realty in 2008.  Raising a family also settles one down a bit to one career and why I’m now a Co-Owner of Colorado Group Realty (the largest independently owned brokerage company in the Yampa Valley) and we give back to the community through our charitable foundation.
