Steven Kruse | Featured Agent


I was born in St. Louis, MO, but we moved to Houston when I was two years old. My father was a builder, so we seemed to move with the different markets. We ended up moving to Peachtree City, GA when I was in third grade. I graduated from the University of Georgia, and liked the mountains too much to stick around Atlanta.

Number of Years in Real Estate:

I was originally licensed in 1996 when I was 18 years old, but was also lucky enough to have attained a 4-year degree in Real Estate from UGA.


ANYTHING OUTDOORS! The reason I moved to Colorado in 2002 was to ski, snowboard, and climb. Skiing/Snowboarding is still my favorite hobby, I still try to get 15-20 days in each year. I also enjoy golf and taking my two boys, Lucas and Colton, up to the mountains on our UTV. My boys would rather be up in the mountains than on their IPad’s, so I feel like my wife and I are doing something right!

Describe Yourself In 5 Words:

Outgoing, Funny, Edgy, Compassionate, Fiercely Independent

Favorite Place to Grab a Drink:

There is a pre-prohibition style bar at the Hotel Jerome that my wife and I love! A fantastic way to start a night on the town in Aspen.

One Unusual Thing About You:

My eclectic music collection. I love everything from Old School Hip Hop to Country, Heavy Metal and Punk to Classical, Reggae, and Classic Rock. My favorite artist of all time is Lionel Richie, followed by Pink Floyd.

What Is One Item on Your Bucket List?

Hiking the Appalachian Trail! I would love to do this with my boys either before or after they graduate college.

What Is Your Proudest Accomplishment and Why?

I’m very proud of my two boys. They are truly incredible and every time I look at them I feel blessed that they call me Dad.

What Is the Most Adventurous Thing You’ve Ever Done?

I live for adventure, so I’m not quite sure. I used to freeclimb when I was younger, which is extremely unnerving now that I look back at it, but at the time it was just an adrenaline rush. My friends and I ski some pretty intense stuff each year, and 6 of us are going heli-skiing in March of this year. All my good friends have kiddos to take care of, so we are all starting to slow down.

If You Could Master Any Skill That You Don’t Currently Have, What Would It Be and Why?

I would love to master the Japanese language. My wife and I have been a few times and we took our kids this year. I have an absolute fascination for the people, the food, the culture, the tradition, the architecture – I could keep going.

If You Could Have Dinner with Anyone, Who Would It Be and Why?

I would love to have dinner with Charlie Rose. Charlie has interviewed the best of the best, so I would love to pick his brain to find out what life lessons he has learned from others.

What’s the Best Concert You’ve Ever Been To? What Made It So Special?

I was married at Red Rocks and have seen over 100 concerts, shows or festivals, so music is extremely important in my life. The best show I had the privilege to see was an intimate concert with around 100 of us and Travis Tritt. It was so special because I was sitting next to my dad, and unfortunately my mother had passed away a year prior. My mom and dad played a lot of Travis Tritt when I was a teenager, so this was a very special show for both of us.

If You Could Live in A Book, TV Show, Or Movie What Would It Be and Why?

I would love to live in any Clive Cussler book because Dirk Pitt is the man. He has the most amazing death defying adventures, but always remains calm, cool, and collected. He is an underwater James Bond!
