About Kristy and Mike Driver

Kristy and Mike have been providing property management services for luxury properties for the past 30 years. Developing our skills while servicing distinctive properties in Aspen, Breckenridge and Vail. We fell in love with the Fruita area because of it's year round sunshine and abundance of outdoor activities. Moving to Fruita in 2002, we began restoring properties and enjoying every moment!

Our goal is to make every stay in our homes memorable.

Kristy and Mike Driver purchased this house in 2014

Why Kristy and Mike Driver chose Fruita

We like the location because of the quiet neighborhood and great private backyard. The kitchen is huge and wonderful for cooking big meals with friends. We love to use the the bike path that runs right next to the home.

What makes this house unique

The interior of the home is a single story and has an open feel. The Master Bedroom/Bathroom is enormous for tons of privacy with traveling in groups. The kitchen flows to the living, dining and patio areas nicely. The outdoor patio faces north and great for sitting and relaxing on hot afternoons.

Amazing property! Excellent owners!

  • 5 of 5

What a beautiful property...very very nice! We rented this lovely place and it's "sister home"The Juniper house which is just around the corner for our son's wedding. It was a wonderful landing spot for our out of town family...we comfortably housed 6 adults and our dogs here with enough room for everyone to have a place and not feel piled on top of eachother... it absolutely 100% met our needs...Kristy was over the top accommodating and I highly recommend this beautiful home. We hope to rent this property again!
