Meet the Team 

Steve and Jennifer Ryan

Steve and Jennifer Ryan originally came to the Crested Butte area on their Honeymoon in 1998. Extended trips to the area and the frustration of finding a property management company that met their expectations were the driving force in relocating to the area and starting Iron Horse in 2009. Jennifer manages the office and all of the accounting after a decade of running human resources for several biomedical firms. Steve brings the knowledge of running several large sales organizations as a national manager and is well versed in all aspects of home management, real estate, marketing, and sales. While Iron Horse keeps them busy, they make time for back country jeep trips with their children, fly fishing, and enjoying everything Crested Butte has to offer.
