Born in Denver and raised in Basalt, Colorado, I am a Colorado Native through and through.
I started my real estate career 24 years ago in the small town of Rifle, Colorado after hanging up my stethoscope and nursing career. With a strong desire to raise my daughters, and still maintain a professional career, I attended Colorado Mountain College and graduated at the top of my real estate class.
After many years of working in other offices, I met my husband and Real Estate partner, Pete Rock. Together, we started a successful Real Estate and Property Management firm in Rifle, Colorado that served clients from Aspen to Grand Junction and all over the world. I took on the role of Senior Real Estate and Management Professional in my fields of expertise, as well as completing higher education to become Employing and Managing Broker to the firm. After building a management portfolio of over 300 properties and countless of Buyers and Sellers, we sold the company and moved to Montrose, Colorado to begin a new chapter in our career and lives.
I am a decisive, ingenious and result-focused Real Estate Broker that loves to have fun with my clients. My greatest desire is to make your next real estate purchase, investment, or sale the very best experience you have ever had. My energy, knowledge, personality and fresh, honest approach will be a breath of fresh air.
When not selling real estate, I can be found enjoying the beauty of the outdoors with family and friends riding horses, paddle boarding, boating, camping, hiking and hunting.
Teddy recently moved from the farming lifestyle of SW Iowa, but is not a newcomer to the western slope. Teddy visited Colorado many times over the years on hunting trips and summer vacations prior to becoming a resident. His 10 yrs in Iowa and Missouri were spent selling row crop farms, recreational hunting properties, and homes on acreage. Through his personal experience in farming, Teddy gained intimate knowledge of soil types, herbicide application and cutting-edge farming techniques including no-till and cover crops. Teddy also gained valuable experience in programs available to farmers through the NRCS and FSA. His navigation through these programs was extensive, not only the enrollment but also the direct management, implementation, running the equipment and personally planting crops. Teddy’s love for wildlife branched not only into property management for clients wanting to grow and harvest world class white-tailed deer, but he also partnered with Pheasants Forever and Private Lands Biologists to restore and improve pheasant habitat that's been threatened from large scale farming. In winter Teddy evaluated timber and worked in some heavy forested areas under Equip and Reap programs under Timber Stand Improvement (T.S.I.). In 2015, Teddy Berger was nominated for the Woodland Stewardship of the Year Award for quality of work. Outside of selling real estate in Colorado, Teddy also plans to use his wildlife management skills to help farmers and ranchers develop their property for wildlife. Teddy currently sits on the board for the Shavano Soil and Water Conservation District for Montrose. He holds a B.A. degree in sales and marketing from Kennesaw State University as well as a professional dog training and animal behavior degree from the prestigious Tom Rose School in St. Louis, MO where he learned to train Schutzhund, Narcotics K-9 and other police working dogs.

My main background is in the home construction industry. For 10 years I owned and managed a roof truss manufacturing facility with 35 employees and a 27,000 sq ft factory on 10 acres in rural Minnesota. After moving to Colorado I owned and operated a small motel in the beautiful town of Ouray Colorado. I have lived in Ouray county Colorado now for over 15 years. The last 7 years I spent building high end custom homes in the area. I think this uniquely qualifies me to guide you through the home buying or selling process. I know the area very well from the premier neighborhoods, unique vacant land mountain properties and everything in between.I understand the ups and downs of owning and maintaining property in this area better than most. I have been involved in major land improvement projects as well as custom home building. I can use these skills to YOUR advantage when buying or selling Real Estate.

I was born and raised in Rural Western Colorado and grew up loving the farm and ranch and hunting life. After graduating from Rifle High School, I went on to Western State College in Gunnison. From there I joined the U.S. military. I spent time in the middle east combat zones during Desert Storm. After seeing most of the world, I decided nothing compared to home and I moved my family back to Western Colorado. I owned and operated a stone and stucco company for over 20 years. Needing a change, I partnered up with my beautiful wife Barb and we opened up a Real Estate and management business. I am proud to say that we are now with United Country Real Estate, Western Colorado Property Specialists in Montrose Colorado.
