Profession(s)Financial Professional, Other
My name is Ray Brienza. I was born and raised in Colorado. I am a Realtor and an Appraiser with over 15-years’ experience.
In my Real Estate and Appraisal businesses, I counsel my clients on residential, commercial, and business property. I have taken several classes/certifications/designations on Divorce and Probate Real Estate. I educated the house spouse in making an informed decision on whether to keep the house or sell the property.
I love to learn; discuss any number of topics; I like to know why and how things work; and read. I will generally have 3-5 books going at any one time. I grew up on a construction site. I have built single-family homes, apartments buildings, hotels, commercial properties, industrial buildings, and office complexes. I generally look at life as an optimist and generally through rose-colored glasses.
As SCUBA diving enthusiast, I teach SCUBA to students, so they can explore the underwater world. This also helps me fulfill my passion for teaching others. One of the passions I have right now is teaching handicap (quadriplegics, paraplegics, and blind) people to dive. My favorite place to dive is the Turks & Caicos Islands.
I also am a skier, (not as active as I was growing up), I still try to ski 2 – 4 times a year. My favorite place to ski is Breckenridge.
