Personal History - Rick Zimmerman was born in Sanford, Florida, moved to Lamore, California and back to Washington, D.C by the time I was 4 years old following my Father's career as career Navy Aircraft Pilot. When I was 8 years old my Father retired from the U.S Navy and purchased a Peach Orchard on East Orchard Mesa, Palisade, Colorado where we called it the Farm, not only raising peaches, cherry's and plums we also had a few farm animals.

Education - Graduated from Palisade High School in 1980 and then graduated from Western State College in Gunnison, Colorado with a degree in Business Administration/Management in 1985.

Continuing Personal History - After graduating from Western State College I moved to Telluride, Colorado where I worked and lived at a hotel named the Coonskin Inn where I skied a whole bunch. Moved to Albuquerque, N.M for one year and couldn't stand being away from Colorado and settled into Durango 30 years ago.

Experience - My first job in Durango was at Tamarron Resort and being a ski instructor at Purgatory Resort. After that winter I went into the car business for almost 5 years starting at Economy Nissan then moving to Bob Sellers Auto Center where it was a great experience into my future sales career in Real Estate.

Real Estate Experience - I became a full time Realtor in 1992, my first place of employment was with a well known Broker named Lee Campbell that owned Realty World/Campbell Realty where I worked for two years. Then I moved to a bigger office at Coldwell Banker/Heritage House Realtors for 13 years under the ownership of Joel Devin and Gina Piccoli. From there I moved to Realty Executives with Derek McCoy in the years that the real estate market got tough not only locally, but nationally through the Great Recession. Banked owned business was generating income so I spent 3 years hanging my license with Summit Ridge Realty Group/Bob Thorne helping with REO business and working on my own retail business.

My New and Current business- Durango Premier Realty, LLC that I started with Jacquie Caldwell in March of 2015.

My Vision for Durango Premier Realty - With my 25 years experience as full time Realtor in Durango (La Plata County) I want people to take advantage of my real estate experience to make wise real estate decisions. The Durango (La Plata County) can be a very diverse market and you need to have a exceptional Real Estate Broker working on your side to help you make the right decisions.

My Beliefs - Listen and Observe from my Clients and live by the Golden Rule treating them with the upmost respect and their best interest in mind for a Successful Real Estate Transaction. With this mindset I have been successful because of Repeat and Referral business that my Clients and Friends provide me.
