Robert Gash, a 4th-generation Colorado native, was born and raised west of Denver in the foothills north of Golden, CO. Growing up, his family owned and operated a small ranch consisting mainly of Arabian trail horses, dairy goats and chickens. Robert learned from a young age the necessary skills involved with maintaining a small ranching operation. Fixing fences, milking goats, cutting weeds and cleaning stalls became daily routines sandwiched between enjoying the Colorado outdoors. A lifelong outdoorsman, Robert grew up skiing the slopes of Steamboat, hunting pheasants on his Uncle’s ranch in northeastern Colorado and riding Arabian horses across the Colorado Rockies.
Getting his real estate brokers license in 2011, Robert has grown his business each year by paying attention to his client’s needs. “Over the years I have hired and dealt with many brokers on many types of projects,” states Robert, “each one having styles and approaches that I learned from—some good, some bad.” Robert knows that sometimes the only thing holding a deal together is the willingness of the broker to get things done. “Owning a ranch takes a diverse set of skills and knowledge”, says Robert, “having the ability to do things yourself or hiring the right person or equipment for the job at hand is a must—choosing the right broker is no different.” Robert knows that every farm and ranch property comes with its own set of challenges and assets. The right broker can often times be the difference between getting a property sold for the right price and letting a property sit on the market unsold.
In 2016, Robert double-sided Fish Creek Ranch, located in Unaweep Canyon outside of Gateway, CO for $1.1M. In 2017, he followed up with another double-sided transaction consisting of 680 acres of prime big-game hunting ground in Hayden, CO for $1.25M—in less than 3 months time. While specializing in farm & ranch property, Robert doesn’t ignore the multi-faceted attributes that many Colorado farm and ranch properties contain. “Many of our farms and ranches here in Colorado provide excellent hunting and recreational aspects,” says Robert, “spending much of my life in the Rocky Mountains has developed in me a love for spending time there. Selling hunting cabins and mountain recreational property makes my job a real pleasure!” An active member of REALTORS Land Institute (RLI), Robert is pursuing his Accredited Land Consultant (ALC) designation—a highly prestigious designation held by only the top farm & ranch brokers in the country.
Robert is very excited to be a part of the team at United Country Colorado Brokers & Auctioneers. “The advanced marketing platforms that United Country Real Estate has developed paired with our office’s skillsets and teamwork approach, gives us a distinct edge over the competition,” says Robert. With excellent photography skills and equipment, drone piloting and video expertise, in addition to a global approach to marketing, Robert feels that very few brokerages can come close to what United Country Colorado Brokers & Auctioneers can offer their clients. “Our first-class commitment to marketing and the ability to offer additional services through our corporate partnerships; including auction services and advance marketing platforms not available to other brokerages, gives us an edge that would be difficult for other brokerages to compete with,” says Robert.
