About Ed and Eddie Keyes
A native of Ohio, Ed Keyes simply fell in love with Colorado after transferring from Hawaii his freshman year to attend the University of Northern Colorado. Once there, he met his future wife Kathy, a Colorado Native from Colorado Springs.
Upon graduating, Ed returned to Dayton, Ohio, and at the age of 24, he and his wife launched a sign business that over the next 34 years would become one of the most successful sign companies in the market. During this time, Ed, Kathy and their 3 children vacationed often in Colorado – promising to return one day for good. That day came in 2006, when he sold the company and moved to Pagosa Springs, eventually turning his passion for real estate into a new career.
Ed Keyes brings to the table extensive real estate knowledge, proven business experience and total commitment to putting his customers first. In his spare time, Ed is active in golf, skiing, hiking, fishing, hunting and swimming, where he still competes in the Masters Swimming Program. He and his wife Kathy are the parents of Eddie and Anne, both of whom live in Pagosa Springs, and Jennifer, who lives in Denver. They have four grandchildren.
An Ohio native, Eddie Keyes grew up playing basketball and swimming and often vacationed in Colorado with his family. He excelled in both sports in high school before moving on to SUNY Morrisville in New York to study horticulture and continue his basketball career.
After college, Eddie lived in Hood River, Oregon, where he worked on Mt. Hood, before moving to Denver in 2004 and setting down roots in his beloved Colorado. In 2012, Eddie and his daughter Kailey moved to Pagosa Springs where joined his extended family in the town he now calls home to begin his career in real estate.

My husband and I recently listed and sold our home through Galles Properties. We were looking for a reputable company that we felt would give us good representation, of course.
We chose Galles being familiar with almost all the agents and thinking highly of them all including the owner/brokers. We chose the Keyes team to work with and more specifically Eddie Keyes.
We felt that he did an outstanding job in the timing of the listing, as we were leaning toward waiting to list, and he suggested listing immediately, with which we were fine! We had an immediate interest and within 2 wks., had an offer which we accepted!
Eddie was very prompt, professional and went the extra mile (considering we were out of state ) during the process. Upon closing, I asked Eddie if I might write a review for him and the great experience we had with him. I did so on the Galles website in hopes other prospective buyers might see this and feel the Keyes might be the ones to represent them as well!
What a great experience working with Eddie Keyes! We wanted that special vacation home and Eddie was a wealth of information and patience. It took months and months and Eddie was there with us the whole time. Eddie had everything lined up for when we were in town and once we knew we had the right place he saw it through to the very end at closing. He is knowledgeable, friendly, prompt, and courteous. We would certainly recommend!
The best way to describe our real estate experience with Eddie is that he went out of his way to make our buying and selling possible, even doing the unexpected. To illustrate, on the day of our move to Pagosa Springs, my wife and I arrived during a Christmas blizzard. I drove as carefully as I could but the storm got the best of me as I managed to jackknife my truck and trailer in an intersection after sliding past my turnoff. Since I did not know anyone in the area, I called Eddie to help me find a tow truck. Instead, he came in his own truck and helped me untangle my mess and get us to our new house. Unknown to us, Eddie had come by earlier to welcome us with gifts. He had started the fireplace and left a bottle of wine with two glasses and a welcome card. Our snowy “homecoming” officially ended our two-month experience of purchasing our new house through Eddie. It was actually the crowning event. Since we lived 1000 miles away, the challenges proved more difficult in the beginning. But during the in-between time of contracts and deadlines, Eddie helped us manage our red-tape affairs with daily updates, paperwork, faxes, e-signings and especially encouragement. Besides being our Realtor, has become our friend.
I’d like to recommend and thank Eddie Keyes for his help in finding and purchasing our vacation home in Pagosa Springs. Eddie’s relaxed and friendly demeanor made the process enjoyable and stress-free. We appreciated Eddie’s willingness to view multiple properties without any pressure. He let us decide what was right for us. We toured many properties. His understanding of the area helped us learn more about our options. It was a pleasure to work with Eddie and we know in the future we will look to him should we have future real estate needs.
I had the pleasure to work with Ed Keyes as my agent for a recent land purchase in Colorado. My purchase was not straightforward and Ed went the extra mile to make sure my interests were protected. When the contract required outside legal expertise, he referred me to an attorney that answered all my questions and provided excellent legal work. I was impressed that Ed always had my best interest at heart despite the fact that it might have caused the deal to fall through. Ed is very professional and I would absolutely use him again if I were to buy property
