Des’ personal history with Jackson Hole dates back to the mid 1990s on a family vacation which led him to return nearly every year since that time, including five years working at the Teton Valley Ranch Camp in Dubois, WY. Des made the Valley his permanent home following his graduation from Middlebury College in 2008. After receiving his real estate sales license in 2010, Des joined RE/MAX Obsidian Real Estate in January 2011 and has worked primarily in the sale of residential, ranch, and investment properties, in addition to having considerable experience in commercial sales and leasing in the Jackson Hole area.
Des is an active volunteer and committee chair with the Teton Board of Realtors and the National Museum of Wildlife Art, in addition to serving as an active board member of the Jackson Hole Public Art Association, and as a longtime member of Trout Unlimited. Des is an avid outdoorsman and enjoys spending his free time hiking, skiing, and fly fishing in the Greater Yellowstone Ecosystem.
