A Few Words from Our Clients

"Excellent from start to finish. Mike and his staff marketed the property well and sold it in a timely manner for full asking price. We were kept well informed throughout the transaction from listing to showings, inspections, right up until the close of escrow. Mike not only did an excellent job on this property but helped us find another highly competent realtor to help us with a different property in another state. The whole experience was wonderful and I can not say enough good or how highly I would recommend Mike and his staff if you trying to sell or looking to buy in this are. Top Notch!! David Read More

"Asa and this team are the best around! They are professional, knowledgeable, and on top of it all, down to earth. We've worked with Asa in both a buying and selling capacity in Telluride over the years; both experiences were easy and smooth from start to finish. With the recent sale of our condo, we really appreciated the collaborative effort of the entire team working together with us. They are truly a well oiled machine and bring an abundance of knowledge and skill sets to the table. We highly recommend Shimkonis Partners to anyone exploring the Telluride market! Read More

"Asa is one of best real estate agents in town. As a long time resident and agent, he knows the characteristics of each area of town, the pros and cons of each of the buildings in town, and all of the ins and outs of the buying/selling process intimately. He kept me grounded and as un-stressed as possible during what is always a stressful process, and his guidance was invaluable. I would highly recommend him to anyone looking for a place in Telluride.

I’m in commercial real estate and have transacted in over 1500 deals, and worked with fortune 100 clients, and Shimmy is among to best of them!

"We've dealt with Shimmy and Asa on a couple of transactions in Telluride. In both instances, their service was professional, engaged, and they understood perfectly our motivation and goals. The interesting thing is that one deal was ++$1M and the other deal was just $50K. But they treated both transactions with the same diligence and creativity. You can't go wrong. Read More

"Shimmy is the best. He is incredibly knowledgeable about the Telluride area. We always felt we were thoughtfully guided, both towards and away from some properties, and never pushed into anything for the sake of a sale. He is also a pleasure to spend time with! He helped us navigate our purchase from start through finish taking care of many details. Would highly recommend! Read More

"I didn't know Mike Shimkonis or any of his staff prior to listing my house with them. From start to finish they handled my listing with the utmost of professionalism and finesse. All of the staff, Shimmy, Allison and Asa always responded very quickly and competently. Shimmy and his staff are very knowledgeable about the local market and expertly helped me navigate the sale of this property. I cannot recommend highly enough this firm. Even those with the highest expectations will not be disappointed by their performance." Read More

"Our most recent home sale was our second real estate transaction with agent Asa Van Gelder at Shimkonis Partners in the past 6 years and we would not work with anyone else! Asa is a true professional that listens and understands to his clients needs and desires. Being active in the local community Asa also knows how to navigate the ins and outs of our local real estate economy. Asa represents you and does it better than the rest! Thank you Asa and Shimkonis Partners!!!" Read More
