Actually, it is not a problem as much as the buyer wants to ensure that the title for the land will be clear. This means that they want to ensure that you have the right to sell the land. Simply being appointed is not enough, a judicial order via probate is necessary in order to do this.
An executor can file for probate in a state where the individual passed or where the majority of their holdings were. It matters not in which state - every state will accept another state's order of probate under Article IV, Section 1 of the United States Constitution
Therefore, I recommend filing in either Colorado or Nevada.
I recommend going to www.avvo.com
to find an attorney near you by professional experience, areas of practice, and client reviews. You can then call them and discuss this via telephone and find an attorney who you are comfortable with. Avvo.com covers both said states.

While the legal system tries to be inclusive of every possibility, sometimes, people are morally wronged but have limited legal avenues to seek relief. If so, please understand that this is not the expert’s fault (in other words, I prefer to tell you the truth rather than tell you what you want
to hear, so if the news is not good, please do not shoot the messenger).
