Carey Matthews (Mattie)
Carey, aka Mattie, was born in San Antonio, TX, then lived in England and Florida - world travel courtesy of her father's military service in the Air Force. After he retired, the family moved back to Ohio to the area her parents grew up. She attended Wright State University in Dayton, OH where she received a BFA in Acting. Shortly after graduating, she moved to St. Paul, MN with her partner Jim and lived there for almost 20 years. In the Twin Cities, Mattie worked in non-profit administration at an art museum and an AIDS charity bike ride. She then spent 12 years at a craft brewery doing marketing, events and public relations.
In early 2016, they had a son on a very cold night in February. So cold that the hatchback door handle broke from the frigid temps on their FIRST visit to the hospital earlier that morning. After surviving two more Minnesota winters, they moved to Grand Junction in 2018, joining other family members on Jim's side, also transplants to the Grand Valley.
They love being around family and the MUCH more temperate weather that Western Colorado offers up. The access to year-round outdoor recreation still makes them pinch themselves to make sure it's real. They became homeowners in the spring of 2021, with the full support of CRG at their side. Going through the home buying process with CRG was a tremendous learning experience and inspires her every day to help our clients. The customer service, creativity, forward-thinking and community-minded ethos of CRG is what attracted her to the team. Those tenets motivate her on a daily basis - along with working with such a passionate and kind group of people!
