Realtor Shirley Watson

Shirley Watson specializes in residential real estate sales, promoting and management. Her rich background
and nearly four decades of experience brings a unique and invaluable skillset to her clients.

Although she calls Colorado home, Shirley is a native of the South – as evidenced by her taste in music, food, and
the occasional “y’all.” The combination of western grit and southern diplomacy serves her clients well. Shirley
can uncover the beauty in hidden gems, find a path to victory when others walk away, and spot a small detail
that may make or break a strategy. She never shies away from a challenge, and she is not afraid to give her
clients sage advice.

Shirley and her Family left their Southern roots in Louisiana and arrived in Fort Collins in 1977. The move proved
to be a great decision on the part of the Watson Family. Good schools, a strong sense of community and a
beautiful setting combined to provide one of the highest and most unique qualities of life available anywhere in
the world. Although both children are grown, they visit Fort Collins frequently as family remains a priority in the
Watson household. When spare time permits Shirley and her husband Chester enjoy fishing, traveling and just
hanging out. When the stress of life reaches a tipping point, you can find Shirley enjoying one of her greatest joys
which is creating memories with one of her three amazing granddaughters and her hard-charging grandson.

Shirley attributes her work ethic and her business sense to her father. “I started working for his contracting
business when I was twelve,” she explains. “He taught me to believe in myself and be confident in everything that
I do. The greatest thing he taught me was to always have a positive attitude and to treat others as I would want
to be treated in their same situation.” These are the fundamental elements to any successful business and ones
that have sustained her through the years and maintained her through the ups and downs of the market. With
30 plus years of experience in the Northern Colorado real estate market, few can match Shirley’s knowledge
of the area. It is her drive to go that extra mile that keeps her clients coming back.” My goal is not just to find a
house for my clients, but to help them discover a new home.”
