A fourth-generation native of Colorado, Loren Williams has deep family roots in the northwest part of the state. Born in Steamboat Springs, he was raised with a ranching and hunting background in Routt, Mesa, and Logan counties. His grandmother ran the café catering to loggers, hunters, and cowboys that is now submerged under Stagecoach Reservoir.
A 1999 graduate of Sterling High School, Loren moved back to the Western Slope to attend Colorado Mesa University, where he graduated with a business degree. Soon after graduation, Loren joined the US Army and deployed for Operation Iraqi Freedom, spending over 24 months in a combat zone as a combat engineer, mustering out as a staff sergeant.
Loren returned to the Grand Valley in 2007 to work in the energy industry, joining the Halliburton sales team and becoming familiar with oil & gas drilling operations. Eventually he opened his own oilfield service business. Always an enthusiastic big game hunter, Loren set aside several weeks every fall to guide elk and trophy mule deer hunts, leading his clients to many trophy bulls and several 200-class mule deer bucks. In 2018, Loren and his wife founded Mesa Outfitters, leading horseback hunts for deer and elk in wilderness terrain on the shoulders of the Grand Mesa.
Most recently, Loren studied for his real estate license to help buyers and sellers transact farms, ranches, horse properties, country homes, and hunting properties. Loren joined broker/auctioneer Gary Hubbell at United Country Colorado Brokers, an office with a wide geographic reach in Colorado and Utah.
On a personal level, Loren lives with his wife, Valerie, and their two young children in Loma, Colorado. They enjoy hunting, fishing, horses, golf, boating, and snowmobiling.
