Originally from Minnesota, Shannon moved to Colorado permanently in 1985. After several years in retail management, Shannon got her real estate license in 1998. Since then, she has sold real estate in the Roaring Fork and Colorado River Valleys for several different real estate firms, including her own. In 2004 Shannon was voted President of the Glenwood Springs Association of Realtors, and then named Realtor of the Year in 2007. Over the years, she has volunteered for both the State and Local Association of Realtors, was a member of the Garfield County Planning and Zoning Commission, and has volunteered for several different entities, including several Chambers of Commerce, and various non-profits. Putting roots down in the Colorado Rockies has been easy- she met and married her husband Steve Kyle here. They are the proud parents of 2 rescue dogs, and live on Elk Creek in downtown New Castle. They love to travel, hike, bike, snowshoe and ski in the great outdoors. Shannon has been helping sellers and buyers negotiate contracts for years, and that experience has led her to become the Transaction Coordinator for Cheryl & CO. Real Estate, where she is also an active licensed real estate Broker.
