Shirley Watson

Broker Associate

Get To Know Me

She specializes in residential real estate sales, promoting, and management. Her rich background and nearly four decades of experience bring a unique and invaluable skillset to her clients.

Although she calls Colorado home, Shirley is a native of the South - as evidenced by her taste in music, food, and the occasional "y'all." The combination of Western grit and Southern diplomacy serves her clients well. Shirley can uncover the beauty in hidden gems, find a path to victory when others walk away, and spot a small detail that may make or break a strategy. She never shies away from a challenge, and she is not afraid to give her clients sage advice.
Shirley and her family left their Southern roots in Louisiana and arrived in Fort Collins in 1977. The move proved to be a great decision on the part of the Watson Family. Good schools, a strong sense of community, and a beautiful setting combined to provide one of the highest and most unique qualities of life available anywhere in the world. Although both children are grown, they visit Fort Collins frequently as the family remains a priority in the Watson household. When spare time permits Shirley and her husband Chester enjoy fishing, traveling, and just hanging out. When the stress of life reaches a tipping point, you can find Shirley enjoying one of her greatest joys which is creating memories with one of her three amazing granddaughters and her hard-charging grandson.
Shirley attributes her work ethic and her business sense to her father." I started working for his contracting business when I was twelve," she explains." He taught me to believe in myself and be confident in everything that I do. The greatest thing he taught me was to always have a positive attitude and to treat others as I would want to be treated in their same situation." These are the fundamental elements to any successful business and ones that have sustained her through the years and maintained her through the ups and downs of the market. With 30-plus years of experience in the Northern Colorado real estate market, few can match Shirley's knowledge of the area. It is her drive to go that extra mile that keeps her clients coming back." My goal is not just to find a house for my clients, but to help them discover a new home."

I would highly recommend Shirley and Tim if you are looking to purchase a home. Very proactive in helping me find my home in this crazy, competitive market. Truly enjoyed working with them!

Shirley and her team are hands down the best realtors in the business! I would not hesitate to use her services again in the future. I would highly recommend her to anyone looking to buy or sell a home.

I worked primarily with Tim Gannon and Shirley Watson. They were both extremely helpful and offered good information about certain areas where I was looking to buy property. Getting to and through the buying process was arduous but eased by the efforts of Tim and Shirley.
