Barbara Allen and Bill Van Gelder: Jackson Hole Wyoming Properties

Originally from San Clemente, California, Barbara graduated from the University of Virginia with a BA in History and in English. She has been an active member of the Jackson Hole real estate community since 1996. Barbara’s success in real estate has been built upon her love of the area and her expert knowledge of the market. “There is nothing more gratifying than seeing people come to the area and fall in love with it – whether it’s the scenery, the recreation or the dynamic community.” She is a member of the Four Season’s Resort Jackson Hole sales team as well as a high producing member of the Sotheby’s team of realtors.

She believes that the strength of a community is built upon the involvement of its citizens – one of the things she loves most about Jackson Hole. She is a Town of Jackson Planning Commissioner (a position appointed by the Town Council). She is also a member of the Town of Jackson Board of Adjustment as well as a member of the board for the Teton Board of Realtors Multiple Listing Service. She is a past board member of Trout Unlimited and the Children’s Community Project, a past volunteer softball coach for the Jackson Hole Recreation Center. She is an obsessed fly-fisherwoman and enjoys running and writing in her free time.
