I'm Clayton! I love spending time with my wife and two daughters, and we have 3 dogs! One mixed breed, and two young French Bulldogs. I was born and raised in Las Vegas NV, and escaped to be closer to the mountains right after graduating high school. My love of snowboarding, mountain biking, and riding motorcycles were the biggest catalysts for that move! After spending several years in Salt Lake City, I accepted a work opportunity which relocated me to Denver, and provided a chance at a whole new adventure!

After living in Denver for several years, my wife and I found ourselves yearning for a change. We were leaving the city pretty much every weekend to camp, mountain bike, and dirt bike in our awesome mountain towns. My wife and I always had a vision and goal to live in a smaller community where we could enjoy all of these things, but also give back and contribute to the community. One day on a drive back to Denver, I recalled some advice my grandmother gave me when I was about 18 years old. She said "never live in a place you don't want to live for a job. Live where you want to live, and you will figure the money out." I decided to take that advice for the second time in my life, and we moved to Grand Junction. 

Grand Junction really checked all of the boxes of our want list. It's a smaller community like the one my wife grew up in, and I wanted. We also really enjoy the milder winters, easy access to some of our favorite trails out of anywhere we've ridden, and the "day trip radius" around Grand Junction is second to none. We can be in Moab, high up in Colorado's biggest mountains, floating the river, or out twisting throttles on incredible scenic back roads all within a short trip. Since being in Grand Junction, we have also taken up competitive pistol shooting, and are enjoying paddle boarding on the Colorado River.

Along with the move to Grand Junction came a career change. Real estate is something I have always been interested in, and finally decided to pursue. Owning real estate has easily been one of the biggest contributors to our own financial independence, and I want to help others achieve that as well. Prior to being in real estate I have worked in several adjacent fields as well as home product businesses, most recently in the residential solar industry. My knowledge of PV solar, HVAC, plumbing, windows and roofing will all help me be a more knowledgeable agent for home buyers and sellers, and the sales experience I gained along the way will help me be an effective negotiator. 

My wife and I have found our opportunities to give back to the community through our local trail organization COPMOBA. I'm a business partner with COPMOBA, as well as a volunteer, and with Habitat for Humanity. 

Thanks for getting to know me! I hope you get to know you better, and how I can help you find the perfect home in our Grand Valley paradise!

We loved working with Clayton during our home buying process. We are a young family with an infant and first time home buyers. The home buying process seemed very overwhelming at first but once we started working with Clayton, we felt so much relief! Our family moved from out of state and we were not always able to look at homes easily. He would go out of his way to preview homes that he thought may be good options for us. Clayton would accompany us to see the places and, since he is so experienced, he would point out subtle things that we would have missed but were really important for our decision process. Clayton maintained exceptional communication with us throughout the entire process. We had an important family event happen around closing and had to close remotely. Clayton completed our final walk through and remote closing so that we didn't have to stress while we were with family. Clayton was also flexible getting our keys to us after closing.

Clayton Smith took over my sale that had been stuck on the market for longer than we'd like. He had fresh ideas for what to improve, helped implement those ideas immediately, got us back on the market quickly, and earned us a higher selling price than we had it listed for previously. I cannot recommend him highly enough!
