Calliope West prides itself on providing personal service for our clients using kindness, moral transparency, mutual respect and collaboration. We chose the name Calliope because that is the smallest species of hummingbird in North America; it is extremely resilient and nests in the Rockies. Calliope is also the Greek muse of eloquence and poetry. Hummingbirds are constantly moving, working quickly and efficiently. We help our clients achieve their dreams with the same vigorous alacrity.
