Rick Hart

Experience, care, integrity, effort - I bring these qualities to my work every day. Clients always come first, and I work tirelessly for their success. I take pride in my work, and am consistently the top performer in the Crestone area.

I started at Darlene Yarbrough Real Estate in 2017, and after six years of mentorship, became Owner-Broker in 2023. I love my work and living in the San Luis Valley - a land of stark beauty, with soaring mountains, sparkling creeks, high-desert fauna and flora, quiet, solitude, tranquility, sunny days, starry nights, community spirit, and myriad outdoor activities.

Buying or selling a home is often the most significant transaction one will experience. It needs to be expertly navigated, informed by unparalleled market knowledge, quick and effective communication, strategic negotiation, and meticulous contract work. While the dollar values may be lower, the same applies to buying and selling vacant land. My mission is to meet and exceed your expectations, working tirelessly in pursuit of your goals.

I support local events, businesses, and non-profits, belong to Realtors of Central Colorado, the Colorado Association of Realtors, and the National Association of Realtors. I serve on the boards of Baca Grande Water & Sanitation District, Crestone Eagle Community Media and Crestone Peak Community Housing. I live in the Baca Grande with my wife and two cats. In my free time, I love working outside on our property, amidst the breathtaking nature that drew us here.


Darlene Yarbrough

Broker Associate - darlene@yarbroughrealestate.com

Following a Real Estate career in Dallas, and after coming back and forth to Crestone for 10 years, I relocated here in 1994. From 1995 to 2023, I acted as Owner/Broker of Darlene Yarbrough Real Estate, fluently handling a diverse range of Real Estate transactions: retreat centers, commercial buildings, and a myriad of residential and land properties. Through sustained success with my Team, I established my company as the foremost Real Estate Company in Crestone.

Along with articulate technical expertise, I provide superior focus and personal attention to my clients’ many needs. As a result, past clients are eager to spread the word about their wonderful experiences. As a broker in a small town, I often work with buyers and sellers on the same transaction.

What keeps my clients coming back? Service and expertise. I nurture strong and enduring relationships with my clients, who value integrity, dedication and loyalty.
