Since 2010, I've worked, played and lived in Durango, Colorado. After graduating from the University of South Florida with a degree in Communication, I was hired by a Fortune 500 company and located to area to manage the territory, and it was love at first sight. Since then, I've experienced the unique livelihood that Durango has to offer, holding positions ranging from a carpenter and jeep guide, to founding and operating a successful tours and transportation company. Leveraging an extensive and successful background of marketing, territory and brand management, sales and good old fashioned customer service, I'm eager to advocate and negotiate on your behalf. Contrary to popular belief, it can actually be fun!
Operating a tourism based business, I thrive on connecting folks to the area, providing a positive experience as they’re introduced to the sheer beauty and magnitude of the San Juan Mountains. The knowledge I've gained from running a business, along with my education (and appreciation) of effective communication and cumulative work experience, has honed my skill of managing relationships on the front end, and administrative organization on the back end. I value good communication: I'll pick up the phone, I'll write you back, and I'll make sure to do the same for anyone expressing an interest in your home.
Outside of real estate, you can find me in the surrounding mountains with my wife, Heather, and dog, Kona. Adventuring outdoors is my jam, and I enjoy any activity on a river, mountain biking the local world class trails, heading off into the mountains or desert in my Jeep, volunteering with Adaptive Sports Association, or just relaxing in my backyard with good friends, a hot grill and a cold beer.
Why use me to sell your home?
I use the best architectural photographer in Southwest Colorado at no cost to you. We're talking first impressions here, so why do your home a disservice with subpar photography?
Having used Adobe products for two decades, the materials I create to sell your home are unique and meticulously designed by me, not by an assistant filling in blanks on a generic template. For the 15 years I've been in marketing and sales, I've learned to understand and appreciate the value of aesthetic pleasing design and effective copy writing. This aforementioned attention to detail is just one part of the overall approach I put into selling your home.

John Mace negotiated a challenging real estate situation with grace and expertise, ultimately getting me a great deal on a one of a kind place that not only met, but exceeded my requirements and desires. He was able to do so by taking a keen and genuine interest in me as a person. I believe he takes this approach with all of his clients, and this makes him feel like not only an agent, but a friend. He is very responsive, via phone/text/email and in person, and has an intimate knowledge of the Durango and Four Corners area. All of my questions were answered promptly and explained in a way that made sense. His wife makes delicious cookies to boot!
As a first time home buyer, John was extremely accommodating throughout the entire home buying process, giving me comprehensive and professional insight of what to expect from start to finish. He was responsive and prompt with any questions or concerns that arose, and always acted in my best interest, making the entire process easy and straightforward. Thanks Mace!
John was extremely helpful and professional every step of my home sale and the purchase of our new home, contingent on that sale. It was a rather complicated process, and John coordinated contracts, transactions, and communications with other realtors and lenders seamlessly. He was very responsive and communicative, answering all my questions patiently and providing needed guidance and advice, even proactively, in my interest. I found him to be very honest and unpretentious - if he wasn't sure of something, we would research and get back to me. John was integral to the quick and painless sale of my home. I'm so pleased that I decided to use a realtor and that I met John at just the time I needed one.
