Biography :

Tammie Bates – A Real Estate Professional With a Passion For The Colorado Lifestyle

Tammie was born and raised in the Dallas-Fort Worth area of Texas. Tammie's parents used to bring her family to Colorado each summer. She remembers the beautiful weather, incredible scenery, and multitude of activities from each Colorado vacation. Ready for a life change, it was an easy decision to move to Durango in 2002 with the combination of open range and spectacular mountain views. Tammie was instantly tied to this community, having gone right to work for the Durango Silverton Narrow Gauge Railroad as their HR Manager. It is here in Colorado that Tammie met her husband Les Bates. Les is a Cutting Horse trainer and competitor. Together they enjoy the ranch life with their four dogs, barn cats, ducks, and horses. When Tammie is not helping people achieve their dreams, she enjoys watching her husband train and show horses.


A Broker That Helps Her Clients Achieve Their Real Estate Goals

Tammie believes that her experience in Real Estate along with her highly successful career in Human Resources as a headhunter and recruiter has taught her to be an exceptional listener. Tammie says, "While listening, I’ll clarify your specific needs and desires, identify your “perfect match,” and find you exactly what you desire or help you to get the most desirable price for your home or ranch property. Whether it is your dream home, your vacation home, or a seasonal place to come and bring friends or clients to enjoy the mountain views and amenities, I know I can help you find your dream in this magical place."

Tammie Bates was such a wonderful support to me during my home buying process. My search began during the heart of the pandemic, when housing prices skyrocketed and cash buyers were fleeing to the mountains of Colorado in droves. Searching for a home is already stressful and this made it even more so. Tammie stuck by me, showing me home after home, writing offer after offer, as I tried to compete in an exploding housing market. In the end, I finally found my perfect home and Tammie was there to help me every step of the way. I would recommend Tammie to anyone looking to buy or sell real estate. Michelle


I was so fortunate to get connected with Tammie! She heard how passionate I was to make the move to the Durango area, and she immediately opened her schedule and home to me! In just 3 days, she found us the most perfect home in Bayfield, wrote a tight contract, and we closed in 30 days! She’s one of the most warm and caring people I’ve met and I’m happy to have a new friend in the area!

"Tammie was instrumental to our search for the perfect home. Even during the very competitive market this past summer, she was able to get us what we were looking for in our price range. She was professional and gave solid advice that ended us getting a contract on a beautiful home."
