If you would like to learn even more about Dillon, take a look at his full bio:
Dillon is originally from Utah where he graduated from Utah State University with a BS degree in Environmental Studies.  After college, he spent several years as a wildland firefighter, completing 30 operational helicopter rappels. This work instilled in Dillon the importance of discipline, hard work, and attention to detail, which are the fundamental principles of his professional career. He then turned his attention to environmental conservation and worked for several non-profits.

When he isn’t working, Dillon enjoys backpacking, rappelling, golfing and playing basketball. He married his beautiful wife Amanda in Zion National Park in spectacular fashion, rappelling down a hundred-foot cliff into the wedding. Dillon and Amanda own a horse named Dane, aka ‘Puff’, who Amanda competes with on the hunter/jumper circuit. They are also rarely without their two dogs, Diesel and Shady.

After having a great experience working with BSW for his latest home purchase, Dillon decided to join the BSW Group. He brings to the team a strong background in real estate. As co-owner of DJ&TJ Rentals (a real estate investment and consultation company), he has acquired a well-rounded knowledge of the buying and selling process from the buyer’s perspective. This experience will also allow Dillon to help clients understand and enjoy the home buying process, as well as realize their short and long-term goals in the real estate market.
