David Martin, Associate Broker

I am a native of the Southern Colorado Rockies and have a real passion for the region and its people. Licensed since 1990 and a third generation Colorado Real Estate broker. I have a vast knowledge of the region and the various markets throughout Southern Colorado. I spent over 20 years (1991-2012) with Land Properties, Inc., one of Colorado’s most experienced and successful Mountain Real Estate marketing and developing companies. I started as a salesman in 1991 and became the President of the company in 2001. This experience gives me an incredible understanding of the various markets and property types in the region along with a vast network of buyers and sellers. As an avid outdoors man, my family and I love the incredible hunting, fishing, skiing, and other recreational activities the Southern Rockies provide. I have been blessed to have traveled to some of the wildest and most beautiful places on earth. From sub Saharan Africa, South and Central America to Siberia. I still have never found anywhere that could pull my family and I away from our home in Salida and the Southern Colorado Rockies.

Let me put my vast networking, knowledge and experience to work for you. Whether buying your dream property or selling your ranch, home, or business, I will give you a competitive advantage and guide you through a trouble free transaction.

Eldon E. (L.D.) Elarton, Broker Associate

Having maintained an active real estate license since 1978, it is exciting to live and work in an area with some of the most beautiful real estate in the world. The resplendent beauty of Chaffee and Saguache County is only exceeded by the incredible diversity to be found. The close proximity to outstanding hiking, rafting, hunting, four-wheeling, fishing, snowmobiling, snow skiing, and rock hounding (to name a few) are each added bonuses. The Expansive views from them any “14ers” in the Collegiate Peaks area and the Sangre de Cristo Range give way to the stunning and gorgeous Arkansas River Canyon where the views change minute by minute. The abundant wildlife including: elk, bear, big horn sheep, mountain lion, mountain goat, turkey, and many more make the area a paradise for photographers and hunters. Just point the camera in most any direction and “click”. The result will likely be a masterpiece!

As a fourth-generation Chaffee and Saguache County descendent, what a pleasure it is to travel the paths of numerous ancestors. Prior to relocating to the greater Salida area eight years ago, frequent visits to Salida, Ute Trail, Garfield, Bonanza, and Alder Creek were highlights of my earlier years. Great-grand parents, John and Addie Belle Elarton came to the area in the very earlier 1900’s. Grandparents, O.D. and Edna Elarton lived in Chaffee and northern Saguache County. O.D. worked in the mines and prospected on his own. After moving to Salida in the late 1940’s, he was an active member/officer of the Chaffee County Mineral and Gem Society. Edna, in addition to raising three children including my father Reid (born in Garfield in 1919), was the last Postmistress of the Alder Post Office from 1924 to 1930. Edna’s later years were spent as bookkeeper for the old City Market and ultimately the Minit Market Chain.

Between focused efforts in the real estate business, a career in public education evolved. Although a high school teacher (business subjects) and athletic coach for several years, administration was the primary focus including a total of 22 years as a high school principal, district finance director, and school district superintendent. Teamed with my spouse Mary, a marvelous mother and career educator, four children were raised. Oldest son Ryan, finance director for Pueblo School District 70, married Diane Foster daughter of John and Sylvia Foster of Salida. Scott (wife Laurie) has enjoyed sixteen years as a professional baseball player and now owns a ranch in Eastern Colorado. Daughter Erin, a 2000 graduate of the Air Force Academy is a regional supervisor for Davita an international kidney dialysis company. Shannon, a Chicago resident for 10 years, works as a consultant to a large domestic and international businesses for Booz and Company.

To become affiliated with United Country – Heart of the Rockies Real Estate as an associate broker has been quite a thrill. Serving the residents of the area and those seeking to be residents, presents a marvelous opportunity to demonstrate a lifelong commitment to professionalism, honesty, and integrity. It is very fulfilling to help people accomplish their desires and goals in the real estate realm whether they are buyers oe sellers. Seeing that each “deal” is culminated with dedication to accuracy, attention to detail, fairness, and efficiency is the performance standard.

Maria King, Office Administrator/Broker Associate
I started out my early adult life moving at least every two years, that was until 1995 when I found my way to Chaffee County. I landed here and have never wanted to leave the beauty that surrounds me. My husband, John, and I ended up raising our 6 children here and all of them graduated from Buena Vista High School. They are now out on their own and are starting to give us wonderful grandchildren. Everything they say about grandchildren being the prize we get for raising our childrent is true, they are the joy of our lives. I have been in real estate in one form or another most of my life. My mother and grandmother were both property managers and I got my first property managment job at the age of 20. In 2006 I took my vast office and real estate experience to a real estate office in Leadville, CO. In 2009 I decided to get my real estate license and have never looked back. It is my job to help the brokers in my office preform to their maxium capibilities. I love working in the office as the support for everyone, brokers, sellers and buyers. Just give me a call and I'll set you up with a broker in the office that would match up with what you want.
