||Joyce Roloff, Broker, CNE, RSPS
Joyce is thrilled to be back in the West and has been in Crested Butte since 2006. She was raised in eastern MO then lived and worked in Washington DC (Congress) and Juneau AK (Alaska Legislature). Before making the move to CB, she worked for school districts in admin positions and as a licensed substitute teacher (CO, WI). She became a real estate broker and practiced for ten years in Door County WI. During that time, she served as a Director on the Door County RE Board, county-state Ethics Panel and committees. She holds a BS-Human Development from UWGB and has been active in many educational and civic groups. When she moved to The Butte, the real estate market was in its downslide and she worked resort and retail jobs, and served as hospice volunteer. Joyce has lived abroad, and in addition to travel, she enjoys the great outdoors, horse riding, skiing, fishing, hiking and is struggling with high-altitude gardening. She married Doug Kroft, former owner – still broker - of Red Lady Realty, and returned to real estate practice. She has two grown sons who live in South Africa and WI.

||Andrew Allen, Broker
I am a graduate of Western State College, Geology, and a graduate of the Sturm College of Law, University of Denver, Attorney
I own Andrew Allen, Law Office, P.C., and have represented clients in Crested Butte and the greater mountain empire of Colorado since 1996. My core practice is criminal law defense but I found that clients need someone with a thorough knowledge of many other areas of the law including real property law.
As a real property attorney I have extensive experience in residential, condominium and business sales and I’ve been a home owners association attorney, plus I have experience with land use changes, land use resolutions, property platting and large track property subdivisions. I’ve drafted legal abstracts and have a thorough working knowledge of the clerk & recorder’s property records office and recall working as a toddler in the basement of the Gunnison County courthouse where the official clerk & recorder land records once were housed only in paper form before the days of computer databases and Internet access.
I was a licensed title insurance attorney for Rocky Mountain Title Insurance working for another broker, now at Red Lady Realty, Ryan Dickens. As an attorney I’ve litigated numerous landlord-tenant disputes and so the gist is: I'm immersed in many real property issues, so becoming an associate broker only made sense. Please contact me if you have a legal matter in Colorado and especially if it’s a real property issue.
