Elizabeth Maguire – Home Owner Relations Director

Liz was born and raised in Melbourne Australia. Her life changed dramatically upon the chance meeting of her future husband at a ski resort three hours from Melbourne.

Liz and her family moved to Jackson Hole in the late 90’s where she quickly became enamored by the community, the scenery, and everything the area has to offer. With her associate broker’s license, Liz began working for Rendezvous Mountain Rentals in Homeowner Relations in 2000.

Skiing, playing hockey, fishing, playing golf, and the occasional mountaineering trip are all important parts of his life here in Jackson Hole.During his time off, Jim enjoys travelling to exotic locales such as the Galapagos Islands.

Ted Shoaf – Home Owner Relations

Ted spent his childhood moving all over the country with his family and didn’t stop until he arrived in Jackson Hole 17 years ago. The plan was to work at a ranch camp with kids for the summer and then go back to school and move on from there. But, like so many who come here for a summer or even just a vacation, he didn’t want to leave.  So after 3 more summers in the Tetons and graduating college in 2004, Ted moved to Jackson full time and has been here ever since. He credits his love for Jackson Hole to the pristine natural beauty of the area, the active lifestyle and his adventurous spirit. During Ted’s time in the valley he has worked many jobs, including 3 years at Rendezvous Mountain Rentals from 2006-09 and has explored the area tirelessly. His customer service experience and knowledge of the area make Ted a great addition to our team.
