AARON PETERSON PROFILE ~ Buyer Specialist & Listing Partner

Aaron Peterson with Team Lorenz

Aaron is a born and raised Chicagoan who was drawn to the outdoor life at an early age. He’s spent a great deal of time traveling in Canada and the western & northern United States to feed the need to be in the great outdoors.  He first saw Durango in all its beauty in 1990 on one of his many cross country motorcycle tours.  He instantly knew this was the place where he would someday live life to the fullest. In 1996, after a very successful career in the fine dining side of the Chicago restaurant scene, he made the switch from the hustle and bustle of big city life…to the charming small town energy of Durango.  Aaron continued to enjoy great success in the Durango restaurant scene, soon becoming widely considered one of the best Bar Operators and Mixologists in the Four Corners Area. Aaron’s 25 plus years providing the benchmark in great service for fine dining clients has prepared him well for a career in real estate. Aaron now works with his beautiful wife (and fellow real estate broker) Sherry Exum-Peterson on Team Lorenz.  When not helping people fulfill their dreams of “the perfect life” in Durango you can find Aaron enjoying the many recreational opportunities of the area with his wife and their dogs. These activities are predominantly outdoors and include fly fishing, hiking, mountain biking, climbing, motorcycling, four wheeling, camping in the backcountry and bow hunting.  Aaron is a hands-on and involved member of many outdoor conservation groups such as Trout Unlimited and the Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation.


LISA GORDON PROFILE~ Closing Coordinator
Lisa Gordon Team Lorenz member
As a young girl, Lisa fell in love with the mountains and when the opportunity arose she left Texas for Colorado.  With a degree in Finance from Texas A&M University and a background in mortgage banking, Lisa will bring that expertise to Team Lorenz as the closing and transaction coordinator to help ensure a smooth and effective closing. Like many, Lisa started with a summer home at Tamarron and then moved to Durango full-time in 1997.
