Who We Are
Purple Mountain Holdings, inc. is a local, family-owned business operating right here in Colorado Springs, under the shadow of Pikes Peak, the very symbol of the front range. The name “Purple Mountain” is from the very idea of “America’s Mountain,” taken straight from our country’s strong heritage.

We understand that our clients each have different needs and goals and we’d like to think that Purple Mountain Holdings, inc. can be their gateway to bigger and better opportunities, as well.
Purple Mountain Holdings, inc. was originally established by the Jones brothers, Matthew and Andrew. They had an early relationship with real estate in the construction industry.

We like to think of Purple Mountain Holdings, inc. as a family business. And while the Jones brothers truly are family, the small team they have established to better serve the community have also grown into family as well.

Matthew and his wife Lauren relocated to Colorado Springs more than a decade ago with little more than an RV, a down payment for a house, and a puppy named Lewis. Upon the first glance of Pikes Peak, towering over the horizon, they stopped the RV, drove a stake into the ground, and haven’t looked back since. Matthew and Lauren have engaged the Colorado lifestyle without hesitation. Camping, fishing, hunting, atv’ing, hiking, and even cutting wood to heat their home are all favorite activities of the Jones family. They now share their home with two daughters Emma (6) and Sally (4) as well as a few more furry friends Molly and Harvey.
Andrew decided to leave the busy engineering life on the east coast to help his brother in Colorado start a new business in real estate. After years in mechanical engineering, Andrew decided a change was in the making, seeking out a reprieve from the hustle and bustle of the east coast. A few years later, Andrew met his wife Nicole, a Pueblo native and settled down in Colorado Springs. While you’ll find Andrew to be a true engineer, he also has a creative side, primarily playing the piano and the guitar. Andrew and Nicole love to travel throughout Colorado for festivals, events, atv’ing, dining, and discovering new sights to see. Although, some of the adventuring has reduced since the arrival of little Jack (3). These Jones’ still know where to go, now with a few more kid-friendly suggestions!
