Cathy Benson




Finding a property that fits your desires seems logical but it is of the utmost importance in making the purchase a fruitful experience. Purchasing a home is like match making, there is a delicate balance of need vs wants to find the perfect property. My job is to be the dream maker.

Not quite a native, I graduated from Western State College and have spent most of my adult life here. Over the past many years I have been actively involved in the Crested Butte Community serving on non-profit boards including starting KBUT, serving on the Gunnison County Planning Commission, the Crested Butte South Property Owner's Association, the Crested Butte Academy and currently proudly serving on the Gunnison Ranchland Conservation Legacy board.

My knowledge and love of the area will help you make better decisions about your purchase. All the time you need will be given, our team at Sotheby's can and will make a difference in your purchase.

Cathy did a wonderful job of finding our dream home in the mountains over a 3-year search process. It was a short sale process and Cathy guided us through all the steps to a final closing – which was a long and tedious process with the bank. She knows the market and the processes and is willing to spend the time to work through the details and disappointments.

As you know we closed on 819 Belleview Ave. in late October. Words cannot convey how special this property is and how the whole process has exceeded our expectations. It all began with your educating me about the market and then our search. You spent so much time showing me properties all over Crested Butte and beyond. Then, the work began with your negotiating a fair price for both parties and helping through the closing with all the details including appraisals, inspection s, etc.
My purpose for writing you today is to let you again how much I appreciated working with you and your firm. Your professionalism and attention to detail was unsurpassed. As you most likely will recall, our process wasn’t so easy. We had a lot of complications due to the fact the monies came from my mother’s estate and since the tax return hasn’t been finalized yet we had some hurdles to jump! I mention this because without your expertise and calm demeanor we might not have been able to purchase our dream second home.

Cathy, it was truly a pleasure working with you and your firm. We worked together primarily from out of state but it was seamless because you are so easy to reach by phone or email. That isn’t always the case in this day and age.

Finally. you made me feel special and I now have a wonderful new friend in CB. You have helped with contacts for everything – caretakers, housekeepers, contractors, designers – the list continue s because you are my go to girl in the Butte. Thank you!
