Kimberly Wilson served for 20 years in the Air Force before she decided to become an elementary school teacher.

Wilson and her husband James both hail from smaller towns in Oklahoma, but have lived in Colorado for the past three decades. They currently reside near Colorado Springs, but have always yearned to live closer to the mountains.

“I applied for some jobs. And I got called down there — I was so excited! — and I thought, ‘Oh my gosh, we’re gonna finally make it happen. I get there, I do my interview, and then we start looking for homes,” Wilson said.


After accepting an offer to teach elementary students in Montrose, Wilson and her husband soon found out that the real estate market is out of control.
