About Rue Balcomb

Rue Balcomb has a passion for helping people find their next property. Having grown up on the North Elk Ranch in northwestern Colorado, she was exposed from an early age to ranch life. Rue is a fifth generation native of Colorado. Her family owns ranches and rural recreational properties throughout Colorado, all of which she assists in managing and working to preserve their natural resources. She recently completed conservation easements on three of the properties, giving her firsthand knowledge of the process, as well as detailed insight into the tremendous benefits of conservation.  Her grandfather and father played significant roles in Colorado water law.

Rue graduated from Colorado State University with a degree in Animal Science with a concentration in Farm and Ranch Management. Upon graduation she spent some time in the land title insurance business as an escrow‐closing assistant. This experience gives Rue the edge in what can be a complicated process for your land transactions.

Becoming a land broker was a natural fit for Rue. She lives the ranching lifestyle and says, “you have to understand it to sell it.”  Also, a natural fit is her association with Mason & Morse Ranch Company. She joined the Ranch Company in 1998 and has spent the last 25 years educating her clients on land values and sharing her practical experience with ranch properties and her knowledge of conservation and recreational amenities. Rue has a rare insight that helps those yearning to own ranch properties by turning their dreams into reality.
