The first 24 years of my life was spent exploring the great state of Alaska. Being raised in the small community of Healy, just outside Denali National Park, provided some of the most memorable childhood experiences one can imagine. Although my passion and love for this great state remains, I have never regretted my decision to relocate to Colorado in 2003.

After graduating college with my degree in Business from the University of Alaska Fairbanks, I selected Northern Colorado as my new home. I am so grateful to live and work in such a thriving and vibrant community. In 2017, my amazingly talented wife Amy and I welcomed our son Maddox Bruin Laner into our world. As most parents will say, he has totally changed our hearts and our lives. We could not be more grateful for him. We spend our free time enjoying outdoor activities: hiking, fishing, camping, snow-shoeing, and traveling to Alaska to share my home state with family and friends.

It is very important for us to give back and reinvest into our community. We are intentional givers of our time, talent and treasure. Through coaching high school athletics, volunteering at local charity events, and donating financially to local nonprofits, we are determined to leave a legacy of significance. This is the underlying purpose of our real estate company and how we are choosing to redefine the real estate industry.

THINGS I LIKE: The smell of coffee, learning from those who know more than I do, peanut butter ANYTHING, anyone who has a great talent, and adventuring in Alaska under the midnight sun.

NOT SO MUCH: Dirty cars, cold French fries, being late, excessive bumper stickers, rye bread, and having competing cell phone
conversations with my wife in the car. 



"Terrific realtor! My wife and I moved to Fort Collins several years ago from out of state and he was able to find us the perfect place. Jesse and his team made the process very easy and straightforward. When a job change caused us to relocate out-of-state this year we used Jesse and C3 real estate again, and once again they made this very painless and was able to get us a very good deal for our house. Highly recommended!"

"Best service in northern Colorado I would highly recommend Jesse and C3. Jesse did a great job getting our home sold quickly and efficiently. Thank you Jesse"

- Elliott and Terri

"Both Jesse and his assistant Lauren are wonderful to work with. With northern Colorado remaining an extremely competitive market, it is so important to have a team behind you that are responsive, understand the current market, and are reliable. Working with both Jesse and Lauren made the house buying process a lot less overwhelming, stressful, and frustrating. Highly recommend to both current and future buyer and sellers within the market!"

"Can't say enough about C3, this is my second real estate transaction with them and they are truly great professionals. Always available and much experience in negotiating the twists and turns that are always present in buying and selling a home. I highly recommend C3, give them a shot, you won't be disappointed."
