Paula Haas – Co-Founder and Accounts Manager
I have been in the Real Estate industry for 22 years and counting. Lyle and I co-founded Colorado Realty & Property Management, Inc (CRPM) in 2006.

My role fits me perfectly with my experience and education, and my knack for logic and organization. I oversee all of the office operations, bookkeeping and administrative work. That means I work hard to keep our systems running smoothly, and our Clients and Tenants happy. We mean it when we say, “that we help to provide “peace of mind”!
It is my pleasure to work with our Owners, Tenants, Vendors and of course our wonderful staff. Being part of the CRPM team is being part of a family, as well as a company that genuinely cares.
When I’m not at the office I enjoy spending time with my husband camping, hiking, and walking our new puppy. My daughter and I share a passion together for health and have recently become avid yogis.

Taylor Haas – Business Development Manager/Leasing Coordinator
I am one of our new Business Development Managers and our Leasing Coordinator. I recently graduated from the University of Colorado, Boulder with a Bachelor’s Degree of Science in Business Administration, with a focus in Management Operations and Human Resources, and a minor in Spanish.
I have been working full time at CRPM for the past two years. Being Lyle and Paula Haas’s daughter, I grew up in the business and have been exposed to property management since the company was founded in 2006. I even worked in off-campus student housing for two years while attending the University. My plan is to carry on the family business someday!
I care deeply about both of my responsibilities here at CRPM. I love to bring on new business because I get to meet new people and build relationships. I also love leasing because I am instrumental in helping tenants find their new homes. Both responsibilities are equally rewarding and just perfect for my talents!
When I am not at the office, you can find me in a yoga studio, or coaching girls, youth club volleyball. I also enjoy skiing with my boyfriend, camping with my parents, trying new restaurants, and binge watching Grey’s Anatomy.
Renee Root – Business Development Manager
I first started working at Colorado Realty and Property Management when I was still a college student at CU Boulder. As I approached graduation, it became clear that I wanted this to be my career.
I love working in Business Development because I get to work closely with both first time landlords and seasoned investors, and help them transition to our property management team. I wholeheartedly believe that we are the best property management company, so I love being able to share about that each day.
When I’m not working, I love hiking, camping, trying new restaurants, spending time with friends and family, cooking and watching football!
My biggest goal is to one day be an investor, just like the landlords we work for each day. Until then, I’m happy to share my experience with our landlords!
Danielle Christ – Property Maintenance Services Coordinator/ Team Leader
I was born and raised in Golden, Colorado. I currently live in the Arvada area with my amazing husband and my wonderful son. I have a large, very close family and I don’t know what I would do without my two great parents, three crazy sisters, and my awesome brother. I love them so much!
I originally started my career as a CNA. It was an incredible experience and one I will never forget. I learned a lot, made great friendships, and heard the most astounding life stories. Unfortunately, after a couple of years it took its toll on me and I decided I needed to make a change. Luckily, I found an awesome opportunity to be able to join the Colorado Realty and Property Management team.
Originally when I started at Colorado Realty and Property Management, I was the Move In – Move Out Coordinator. I was promoted the following year after I was hired to the Property Maintenance Services Coordinator. I was so excited, I couldn’t have been more happy! I worked hard and reached my goal!! I enjoy my job because it is challenging and always keeps me on my toes. I also love the person I have become and my second family at CRPM.
I enjoy doing things with my family, road trips, camping, yoga, and fishing. I also enjoy baking, singing and going to baseball games.
I strive for greatness and being a good team leader.
Lorraine Gezzi – Leasing Coordinator
I am so excited to join the CRPM team as our Leasing Coordinator! I am responsible for marketing our properties, processing applications and helping our new residents have successful move-ins to their homes! I love working with our landlords and residents and building those connections and relationships! I pride myself on always focusing on communication and empathy in my interactions with our clients and customers!
I was born in Chicago, raised in Wyoming, and have been a resident of Colorado for the last 12 years! I absolutely love living in Colorado, and enjoying all our wonderful state has to offer. I have two amazing daughters that I live with in Pueblo, Colorado!
I studied Creative Writing and Human Resource Management in college, and worked in HR and Benefits Management for eight years before transitioning to real estate roles in 2018. I worked as an executive assistant and transaction coordinator for one of the largest real estate teams in my area before coming to CRPM and am so grateful to have all that experience to bring with me to support me in this role, too!
In my free time, you can find me hanging out with my family – we love games so a lot of our time is spent playing video games, card games, tabletop games or even hunting down Pokemon on our phones! I also can’t resist a Saturday spent thrift shopping, working out at the gym, or watching Star Wars or Harry Potter – my two favorite series.
Ernie Martinez – Showing Assistant
I am a Denver, Colorado native! I graduated from Denver East High School and Adams State College. I have also been in the Real Estate Industry since 1970, a true veteran. During my many years of Real Estate experience, I have attended various Real Estate educational institutes and am certified in Property Management, HOA Management, Facilities Management and Apartment Management.
I am a Showing Assistant and one of the hardest working members of the team. I recently came out of retirement and am “back in the saddle” again showing our available properties to prospective tenants. I love my job, and my wife’s happy I’m working again too! Ha!
When I am not working I enjoy spending time with my family. My wife and I have been married for 36 years, and our seven children, fourteen grandchildren, and ten great grandchildren all live in Colorado too.
I love to bring my coworkers yummy goodies, and letting them joy-ride my Smart Car!
Billy Early – Maintenance Coordinator
Two years ago, when I moved from my hometown of Tucson, AZ to Colorado I was happy to discover I had another great city to call home. After the ski industry brought me to the Mile High City, the people and atmosphere have kept me here!I never would have thought that I’d be doing property management, especially after studying Business Management at the University of Arizona. Now, I couldn’t imagine being anywhere else. I admire the tight-knit group of hardworking people that really care about the work they do. It feels like family, and we treat our clients like family too! Even though I am new to the property management business, at CRPM I am able to use my extensive customer service and management experience to assist our tenants and owners, as well as my team members.
When I am not working with our maintenance team or checking up on properties, I am camping with my girlfriend and her family, or coaching youth sports. I love everything this beautiful state has to offer, and I look forward to the many more adventures to come.
Tanya Garcia – Client Services Specialist
I work primarily with the business development team. I am responsible for onboarding new clients. My responsibilities include management and organization of all onboarding documents, rental price research and recommendations, creating the property listings for Internet marketing, and weekly listing follow-up regarding the marketing activity of posted properties.
I am committed to doing the best that I can in everything I do and motivated by achieving great results. At CRPM our goal is to provide the best possible service to our clients. I honestly love working with people either by phone or in-person and making them happy makes me happy. Because I’m bilingual I’m able to assist our tenants and property owners that speak Spanish.
I enjoy traveling and exploring new places with my husband, going out to eat, and watching lots of shows on Netflix! I love animals and have 5 dogs and a cat.
Robin Sheck – Accounting Specialist
I am the Accounting Specialist, and I wholeheartedly enjoy working with our wonderful Property Management team. I have a background in Customer Service and Administration. I never thought I would be working in Property Management but this adventure has been truly rewarding!
With my experience, I am excited to deliver exceptional service for our landlords and residents. I am particularly lucky that my role combines my passion for creating a great customer experience, and my dedication to detail and organization.
I grew up in Wyoming, but I have called Colorado home for the past 10 years. I am newly married! When not at work, my husband and I love finding new breakfast places in our area, binge watching Netflix together, and baking cookies to share with our friends.
Karen Garcia – Accounting Assistant
I was born and raised in California but I have moved a few times over the years. I studied English as a Second Language at a Private College in Chiapas, Mexico. I decided that wasn’t what I wanted to do so after 2 years of working in customer service, I found CRPM.
I am the Accounting Assistant at CRPM. The responsibilities I have include checking utility bills to security deposit dispositions to making sure tenants are current with their payments. It can be challenging at times but that’s what I like most about it, you never have the same day twice. Every day is a new day!
In my free time, I enjoy being outdoors. I love going to museums, parks, seeing monuments or being at the mall. I also enjoy watching movies, visiting my three sisters and going out to eat, especially sushi.
