Kelly Maves

Team Leader of The Maves Group @

Coldwell Banker Distinctive Properties

Growing up in Grand Junction and graduating from Fruita Monument High School has established my broad database, as well as my local area knowledge. As many "locals" do, I moved to the front range in 2001 where I obtained my real estate license in 2003 and joined Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage where I specialized in residential resale. In 2005 I joined the residential sales team at Four Seasons Hotel and Private Residences in Denver, CO as Marketing and Sales Manager where I oversaw the sales and marketing efforts on the new $350M 45 story high-rise from groundbreaking through completion. Following the completion of  Four Seasons in 2010 I moved back "home" to Western Colorado. Shortly thereafter, in October 2011, I married Michael Maves of Maves Construction. With my background in real estate sales and knowledge of the Grand Valley I am confident in being able to help you find your dream home. In June 2013 we begin a new journey as The Maves Group. Our experience and industry expertise speaks for itself. Marketing is my passion. One thing I love is the challenge of coming up with innovative ways to market my clients' homes. It truly results in a faster sale for a higher price. We have a team of agents ready to assist you in your next home sale or purchase. Give us a call, we would love to help you in your next real estate sale or purchase.

2014 Coldwell Banker Distinctive Properties ROOKIE OF THE YEAR

I first jumped into the real estate industry nine years ago as an assistant to one of the top producing real estate agents in the valley. It was this experience that ignited my passion for real estate and was the driving force behind becoming an agent.

   I am the proud mom of three boys ­ Matthew 10, Caleb 8 and Logan 6, and a local girl, graduating from Fruita Monument High School (GO WILDCATS!) and Mesa State College (now Colorado Mesa University). Pairing my real estate license with a Bachelor's of Arts in Psychology and 8 years in the customer service industry gives me a cutting edge in the real estate market.


It is the combination of my passion, experience and knowledge that gives my clients a transaction that is as seamless as possible. My goal is to make my client's role simple, always staying one step ahead. I  have award-winning customer service skills and strive for innovation and creativity in each transaction. Knowing that the real estate industry is ever­-evolving, I am always thinking outside of the box.


To me, there truly is no place like home.

I am proudly a fifth-generation Grand Valley native with roots in Crested Butte as well. I feel so fortunate to have been born and raised here, where I'm blessed with an abundance of outdoor recreation and the comfort of a tight-knit community.

My previous work in restaurant management has allowed me to build invaluable relationships with the people in our community. Giving our patrons anything less than consistently stellar service was unacceptable to me, and I worked hard to earn the repeat business of many regular guests over the last eight years.

I was raised on the importance of honesty, integrity, and trustworthiness, and pride myself on being extremely dependable and professional. I live and breathe by these values and look forward to building more long-lasting relationships with new and past clients!
