Ian Dethloff was born and raised in the small mountain community of Crested Butte, Colorado. He attended Colorado State University in Fort Collins where he earned a BS in Natural Resource Tourism. After completing his degree, Ian spent the next several years working between Crested Butte in the winter and northern Wisconsin in the summer. Having attended summer camp as a child, Ian chose to return to Wisconsin to be a camp counselor and was then promoted to trip director where he organized and led extensive wilderness trips. Ian fostered many important relationships while working at camp in Wisconsin. One of those relationships was with Holly Chione, the owner of Morton Properties Denver.

Deep knowledge of the market and real estate processes


Innate affinity

Confident listening

Don't just take our word for it

Holly knows Denver inside and out. She helped us sell our home and buy our new one. She works really hard, listened closely to our needs/desires and found an amazing home in a neighborhood we didn't even know about. Her years of experience mean that there is very little she hasn't encountered. She had great advice about the inspection process and the financing/lending process. I would highly recommend her to anyone looking for a great realtor.

Working with Morton Properties was an excellent experience. I was always able to see a property no matter the circumstances; this included living out of state and family vacations. I felt Holly gave me solid, honest advice when I seeked it. This was my first time buying on my own, so that was important. She also worked in my best interest with the home owner, Opendoor. Despite it being a corporation, she was still able to advocate on my behalf and get them to agree to certain asks that were important. I highly recommend Morton Properties.

Holly is a wonderful and patient real estate professional. I met her at FINN Real Estate and I am so excited that she has embarked on her new journey as an entrepreneur. I wish her the best of future successes. I would highly recommend her to anyone looking to buy in this insane real estate market.

Absolutely awesome experience working with the team at Morton properties. I would highly recommend them for anyone working to find a place to live in the area. Everything was great; from the initial process of getting to know me and what I was looking for to the searching, finding, offering, and advice process.

Holly Morton and her team did an exceptional job selling our father’s house! She nailed the listing price. We achieved the highest selling price possible but were also able to close quickly. She was extremely dedicated and responsive and made the process as effortless as possible for us. She provided us with comprehensive advice on how to prepare the home for sale in the most cost-effective, efficient way. She knows the Denver market very well, and the Southern Hills neighborhood exceptionally well. She is unquestionably loyal and honest, which helped her establish trusting relationships with several parties and mediate potentially contentious interactions. We are going to work with Holly to sell several other single family properties. We can’t recommend her highly enough!
