My name is Jeff Fox, and I am the team lead for The Fox Group. I am in my 11th year of real estate and I am a 6 time Five Star Professional Award Winner. I help both buyers and sellers find their happy place, and have led the Fox Group for the past 5 years. I just love what I do, and love this real estate journey. I do want to take a moment to share my story with you below. If you have the time, feel free to read.
I thought it would be only fair to share a bit more about myself and my story. I really do believe our stories help define our future. Both the joyous and painful events in our lives shape us, refine us, and help us define more sharply what is really important to us. The longer we live, the more we learn, and the more we understand what really makes our clocks tick. I really do love to hear people’s stories, so now it's time to layout mine.
I grew up in California in a town of about 50,000 people in the San Francisco Bay area. I spend a good deal of my childhood outside, building forts, catching polliwogs, riding dirt bikes, etc. I loved the outdoors and that has been a staple in my life ever since. In school I was active in sports, especially running and soccer. These two sports would stay with me well into college. I grew up in a church home, and being connected to the church is still a big part of my life. It centers on me and reminds me that ultimately I answer to something much bigger than myself.
After High School, I attended Westmont College and majored in Communication Studies. My wife would say I majored in “Social Studies” because I was so darn social, but I did actually study. I met my wife, Leslie, in my freshman year of college, but we did not end up dating until our senior year. After a great 4 years, I graduated, got engaged and married, and moved to the mid-west to work with a youth ministry organization called K-Life. We spent the first 6 years of our married life with a bunch of middle schools and high school kids running around our home, breaking things, getting in pillow fights, going on camping trips, and basically having a great time. I then went to seminary, thinking I would be a pastor at a church. After 3 years of study, and many hours leading a College/Young Adult group called Damascus Road, we moved to Colorado. Instead of heading into a pastoral position, I worked at a camp and conference center called Horn Creek Conference Center. I directed several different programs including the recreation program, the young adult internship, the lodging and dining facilities, and the summer staff program. It was an amazing 5 years of living on the side of a mountain in the middle of nowhere, hosting groups of folks from all over the country. It was so fun to introduce them to the beauty of Colorado outdoors and watch them grow and learn.
During this season, I began buying and selling rental properties as a hobby as well. Growing up with a dad as a Realtor®, it was kind of in my blood. I always loved the real estate process; buying something and transforming it into a place that people would like. As a result, when our time at the camp came to an end, I decided to jump into real estate full time. We spent a lot of time thinking through our life, our experiences, our passions. We got out a map of Colorado and started to name some places we wanted to live. We further narrowed down the list and finally settled on Golden, Colorado. Golden made sense to us for several reasons. Leslie and I wanted to be near a college since we like hosting college students in our homes. We also wanted an outdoor-oriented community, as that has always been a big part of our life. We also loved the mountains and wanted to be as close as we could to skiing, hiking, etc. Lastly, we wanted a smaller community close to the amenities of a larger city, and Golden fit the bill.
Now, 13 years later I have grown to love this community more and more and am fully committed to my clients and friends all over the Denver Metro Area. I run a small team called The Fox Group, that serves clients in Golden, Highlands, Arvada, the Foothills, and all over the Denver Metro Market. In addition, I have had the honor of working with over 100 new friends over the past 4 years, introducing them to Golden, the foothills, and many communities along with the front range. After being the top team and individual agent at Fathom Realty for the past 3 years, we felt it was time to further push ourselves and grow our team. We recently joined Compass, and now have access to the top technology and marketing in the industry. We feel this will serve our clients even better as we move forward.
My wife and I really love Golden. We bought our own historic home here and remodeled it, and love living downtown. We have two daughters ages 21 and 24. We love them a lot which I think annoys them a little bit! We love hiking, biking, swimming in Clear Creek, eating at local restaurants, enjoying the outdoors with friends, escaping to the mountains, and getting involved in community service. Our story led us here, and we feel like what we are doing now in Golden is a result of all the different experiences we have had up to this time. Real estate has been a great fit for me, as I love to show hospitality, host new families, and help folks find their refuge. I enjoy helping people dream about their future and find places that truly fit them and their stories. I have had so much fun meeting new friends and neighbors as a result of being in real estate. I look forward to continuing to grow in my skills, helping families and individuals find their homes and reach their goals.
Jeff is an absolutely fantastic Realtor®. We couldn’t have gotten our home in golden without him. unbelievably responsive and great at finding the right house.
