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.

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 love property management and real estate! It started at a young age when my grandfather would bring me to his rental properties on the weekend. My cousin and I would play “Realtor” and take turns showing the house. Then at just 10 years old, I took it upon myself to find homes that I thought would be suitable for our family and encourage my parents to “buy that one.” In my late teens, my family began purchasing investment properties and I continued to learn even more about the process.
I started working at Colorado Realty and Property Management, Inc. as a Showing Assistant while attending the University of Colorado, Boulder.
I’ve since graduated from CU Boulder and moved into a new role with the company, as a Business Development Manager. I love being able to explain the leasing and management process to first time landlords or be a trusted reference for seasoned investors. I deeply care about guiding landlords to their best possible outcome and building relationships along the way.
When I’m not in the office, you can find me spending time with my family, trying local restaurants and exploring our beautiful state! My dream is to one day invest in real estate, just like the landlords I work for each day.
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.

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 – Turn Coordinator
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.

Amber Hernandez – Leasing Coordinator
I began my career at CRPM just a few months ago and couldn’t be more excited to join this amazing team that’s making a big difference in the property management industry. I was hired to join the showing team and help prospects with finding their home. I recently got promoted to Leasing Coordinator and I can’t wait to see what this next opportunity has in store for me. I’m excited to grow and learn in this new position.
I have a background in customer service with retail and as a medical concierge. I have enjoyed my time in those roles and grateful for what I have learned, and to bring on to this next chapter in my career.
In my free time I love being outdoors – going on bike rides, hiking new trails and anything fitness related. My favorite free time activity is traveling with my husband, and exploring new places, cultures and adventurers.
Robin Gezzi – Accounting Specialist
I am the Accounting Specialist, and I am the most recent addition to our wonderful Property Management team. I have a background in Customer Service and Administration. I never thought I would be working in Property Management! Lyle recruited me from my old job to be a part of the team. I am ready for this new adventure!
With my experience, I am excited to deliver exceptional service for our homeowners and tenants. I am particularly lucky that my role combines my passion for creating a great customer experience and my passion for detail and organization.
I grew up in Wyoming, but I have called Colorado home for the past 10 years. I am recently engaged! We will be married in Summer 2020. When not at work, my fiance 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.
