A Few Words from Our Clients
As seller's brokers, Asa Van Gelder, Mike Shimkonis and their support team have no equal in the Telluride market! They did an excellent job of assisting us in preparing our property for market and helping us understand the proper pricing strategy based on empirical data and knowledge of trends and available inventory. Their marketing efforts ensured a wide exposure to our property including bringing a large number of local brokers into the home to make them aware of its current improvements and promoting how favorably it compared to other available inventory. Ultimately they created interest which attracted a qualified buyer and yielded a premium price at closing. Throughout the escrow process they were actively engaged and resourceful in making sure we got to the closing table. I highly recommend these experienced real estate professionals to anyone wanting expert advice and an 'above and beyond' level of service and initiative! Thanks, guys, job well done!
