Meet the team

WHO is Watson?

Our team is made up primarily of Shaun and Jenn

Watson, is my nickname. I got this nickname from the character Dr. Watson from the Sherlock Homes character.


Well, I am hardworking, I am loyal and I care about people. Well that’s what Jenn says anyway. She goes on to say…

Shaun is smart, I will give him that but I wont go as far as saying he is a genius. Don’t wont to give him too much of an ego. Therefore he is Watson and not Sherlock 🙂

We have many more important team members but let’s start here, for now. 

Meet Shaun!

As you can tell from the size of the heading my story is less exciting that Watson’s.

But here we go.

Hi, I’m Shaun. Sometimes I’m the goofy glasses guy. I was born in New Zealand and yes New Zealand does have dragons that cry jelly bean tears of joy. New Zealand is a wonderful place.

IMAGE: That's me (Shaun) without glasses
I first came to the States 20 years ago after my first year of University. I took a semester off and worked on a ski resort (Keystone) in Colorado. I fell in love with the country. I fell in love because the U.S is also a wonderful place full of great people and places.
After finishing the Colorado winter I returned to New Zealand to continue my education. At the end of each school year, I traveled back to America for another ski season.
After 6 years in college, I graduated from Auckland University as a Physical Therapist. I chose Physical Therapy because I have always enjoyed helping people. After graduating I worked in New Zealand for 3 years in schools and private practice. It was a great time but I missed Denver and the Colorado Rockies. So… I gave notice and headed back to the land of opportunity. This time I moved to Vail, Colorado.
After another awesome winter I was asked to stay for the summer. It wasn’t long before I fell in love with the summers. And then it wasn’t long until I fell in love again.
If you are into Disney movies then you will love this story.
It was during this first summer that I was learning how to Kayak. A friend and I were on the Upper Colorado River. After floating down the river in our kayaks weI needed a ride back to the car. We dragged our kayaks to the side of the road and stuck out a thumb.
After a while, a fair maiden (and her friend) pulled over and offered me a lift back to my car. We chatted during the 10-minute car ride and somehow I managed the courage to get her number. (Well actually the true story is I chickened out but my friend who I was kayaking with got her phone number for me instead, I owe Tim more than a lot).

So now I had Jennifer’s phone number. And as they say, the rest is history. We fell in love, were married, have had a few arguments along the way, but remain devoted and in love with one another.

A few years into marriage we adopted our first cat. His name is Von Barron-Trough or BB for short. He is Watson’s oldest brother and dear friend. More on BB later. Then came Olive, Watson (named after the same person as me), and Matilda. 

After adopting 4 rescue kitties we decided that was enough in our smaller house. However we have tried to be contributing members of the greater Colorado community.
We still support organizations that help people and animals alike. Jenn and I coach a few local Special Olympics Teams. We coach the “Wolf Pack” which is our Mountain Bike Team. We also coach the “Barracudas” which is the swim team.  We are hoping to volunteer with the Ski Team also. Watch this space.

We continue to donate to animal shelters too. There are many great animal shelters. The one we focus on currently is located in Denver. It is called The Feline Fix.

“We can not do any of this without your support. We thank you for your kind words. We are so very grateful for trusting us and giving us the chance to work with you all.”

Sincerely, Shaun Martin

Watson Buys: Mission & Purpose

Here we describe our mission and purpose. This will shed some light as to why we are in the “Sell My House Fast” business. None of us thought we would be buying and selling houses for a job. When I was five, I am pretty sure I wanted to be a fireman or an astronaut.

Before I tell you what Watson Buys is about I want to say this:

I want to say that We cannot do this without you and your support. So a big THANKS to you and your families and friends. Thanks so much for your time and help.

Are you ready?

We buy homes with the prime directive of making selling a to us easy. You can sell to us easily because we buy them as-is.

Why We Do What We Do

Why do we want to help people sell a house fast?

There are 5 key reasons we do this.

1. We want people to feel safe, especially if they are in a vulnerable position. We never want a homeowner to be taken advantage of by unscrupulous people. 

2. We believe all people should be treated with fairness, honesty, dignity and respect.

3. We love helping people.

4. We love helping animals.

5. The money that we make in this “JOB” allows us to help more people and more animals in our community.

How We Work

How do we give homeowners a safe way to sell fast?

We have a 4 step method. Our method is easy. Our method is fast. Finally, our method ensures you get treated fairly.

Our method is called the Mile High Method TM. The Mile High Method TM allows Watson Buys to give you a fair offer quickly. We opperate in the Mile High City with this method to guarantee you are happy when you work with us. 

If you decide our offer is right for you we will close fast (less than 30 days or faster if you need).


You will be able to sell with a real estate agent.

That’s how we buy. We use a simple, easy, practical, 4 step method that you can do too!

Next, we introduce you to Watson, Shaun, and more of the team. But first a quick message from our sponsor (i.e. us.)

What do we stand for?

A Watson Buys we believe that in this amazing country no-one should be left behind. This county is the richest in the world and therefore we should find a way to share that. Watson, the cat, embodies our passion to be kind, inclusive, and to never discriminate in any area of our lives.

OUR GOAL is to help people make the best decision for their families when they move. When people choose to use us, we will make it simple, fast, and fair. 

OUR MISSION involves freely giving the best information to people selling their houses. This information will be both practical and relevant.

PRACTICAL: The information that we give will be able to be used by normal people like you and me. For example, if you need to sell your house fast we are not going to tell you to do a massive kitchen remodel for 2 reasons:

  1. A massive kitchen remodel will take along time
  2. Who has the money to spend $50,000 on a kitchen?

Vail Barracudas Swim Team.

The Vail Barracudas Swim Team is located in Eagle, County Colorado.

During the spring months, a dedicated group of athletes, parents, and coaches, get together each week at the Avon Rec Centre to train. During swim season we train hard, physically and mentally.

The goal is to do our best and represent ourselves in the best possible way in everything we do. To do this we must push our limits at all times including:

  • Swimming hard when in the pool
  • Understanding the importance of nutrition
  • Maintain schedules to fit in work, training, and fun stuff.

We learn how to take care of ourselves individually and as a team.

The Vail Barracudas are part of the Colorado Special Olympics.

They are in Denver at: 12450 E Arapahoe Rd suite c, Centennial, CO 80112

Once a week coaches, athletes, and parents come together to improve bike skills, get fitter and stronger, and have a bunch of fun while doing it.

Each summer the Wolf Pack plans to compete at regional and state-level bike races. These events give everyone the opportunity to learn new things, make new friends, and reacquaint with old ones, and just have a darn tooting good time.
