Born and raised on a farm in Starlight, Indiana, Ayden quickly made his way out to Los Angeles where he spent more than a decade working in the entertainment industry before traveling the globe. Though he's spent significant time internationally, in places such as India, Bali, South America, Europe - Santa Fe immediately felt like home and became the place he knew he wanted to settle the first time he visited. It seems to capture what he loves most about all of his favorite cities, yet to be found in a small town. The history, adobe architecture, the wisdom of the people, culture, delicious food, exquisite art scene, snow skiing and hot springs, the vast open landscape and stunning sunsets, the "city different" - it was clear to him this is a special place.
Ayden fell in love with real estate and its endless potential when he purchased his first home. After quickly turning a profit, he realized he has a knack for what works and a vision for helping others do the same.
Ayden prides himself on human connection and believes that the real estate industry is about relationships rather than transactions. He goes above and beyond to stay a step ahead, predicting questions and issues that may arise so that his clients can focus on their busy lives and enjoy the buying/selling process.
Ayden has built his business on integrity, "keeping it real," perseverance, response time, and credibility because that's what he would expect when working with a Realtor. He is committed to providing quality service in hopes of becoming his clients’ Realtor for life.
Ayden's greatest passion outside of real estate is service. He once lived with world renowned author (Be Here Now) and teacher, Ram Dass, as his personal caregiver. When not working with clients, Ayden serves the community by volunteering for hospice, teaching meditation and mindfulness at the State Penitentiary, and serving ceremonial tea to at-risk youth in detention facilities..
