Realtor Perry Hillegas

Hailing from Virginia Beach, Virginia, and having an adventurous spirit, it didn’t take long for Perry to find his way to
Colorado. After a church mission in Chicago, He moved to Houston Texas where he met his future wife, Vonda, eight
months later. With one of Vonda’s sisters living in Fort Collins, it didn’t take much to twist their arms to make Colorado
their future home.

Although they’ve been in Colorado for over 35 years, Perry likes to say (in dad-joke fashion) “I’m not a native, but I’ve
made three of them!” All grown now, they are lucky enough to have all of three of them here with them in Colorado
with a young granddaughter to boot.

As an alumnus of Rocky Mountain College of Art and Design, Perry quickly got involved in desktop publishing and
immersed himself in the ever-changing technologies in the world of digital publishing.

In fact, as a contractor, he created the first ever static, graphical website for NOAA’s Environment Research Laboratories
in Boulder, Colorado. It wasn’t long before he transitioned into working with databases which would later push that data
to web pages dynamically.

Perry first dove into real estate almost 10 years ago after becoming friends with a co-volunteer while teaching seminary
to youth. After mentoring him for less than a year, Perry quickly grew into his own as he discovered the joy and
satisfaction of helping others. Whether it’s to find their dream home or help them sell their existing home, he loves
guiding people them through the process.

With the kids now on their own and a large extended family in Fort Collins, Perry and Vonda knew it was time to head
north. C3 Real Estate Solutions was the perfect home for Perry having a shared passion for serving others as a top
priority.

Perry is one person who is never bored. A bit of a renaissance man, Perry finds something interesting in just about
everything he encounters. He’s built decks, large stage sets, pirate ships, Santa sleighs, completed home improvement
projects of all kinds, generally loves tinkering with thing, shooting things at the gun range, and enjoys the great
outdoors. He’s fun-loving, adventurous, loves helping people with projects and loves being with family. Below are just a
small sample of the many activities Perry enjoys.

Dirt-Biking

Mostly on the trails of the deserts of Utah, Perry finds riding his trusty old Honda XR600
is as refreshing as a breath of fresh air. He usually makes a trip or two each year to camp
and ride with friends and family.

Hiking

Perry has hiked over 20 of the Colorado 14ers, often with his
nieces and nephews. Although he loves the views and being
above tree line, his wife Vonda prefers to take the low road
and stay near waterfalls and cascading rivers.

Volunteering

Perhaps nothing gives Perry greater joy than making others happy through service and helping
others. He’s built countless props, sets, and murals for church youth dances, dinners, and after proms. He loves teaching
and working with youth and joining in on the fun wearing ridiculous costumes with his wife upon occasion. On
Halloween he transforms into the dread “Pirate Perry” and shares his treasures with the wee little lassies of the high
seas! For 2021, he built a 55-foot-long frigate in just two days! He plans to add to the display annually.

Testimonials

caveats. He exceeded our expectations and then some with his knowledge, attention to detail, professionalism, charisma (a joy to work with) and his ability to close the deal. Iwould HIGHLY recommend him as your next realtor.”

“I would highly recommend Perry…He was so helpful and patient during the whole
process. What impressed me the most was how available he was for us. In this
highly competitive market, he knew what it took to get things moving. He felt like a
friend not an agent. He listened to what our wants and needs were and helped us
find the right house and get the very best price for ours. He truly fought for us. If
we ever move again Perry will be our first call!”

“My fiancé and I had Perry as our agent to help us with our search. Being that it
was our first time buying, there was much to learn and a lot to be aware of. Perry
answered all our questions and walked us through all the steps with no hesitation.
There was no such thing as a dumb question. He was a wordsmith with the offer
on our new home as he was able to get the seller to accept our offer for almost
$20,000 under asking price.”

of the situation and took the time that was needed to finally help her find a place.
He is knowledgeable about the market…and will respond quickly to any questions
you have, which in our case was a lot. I would recommend Perry without
hesitation.”
