When I decided to list my Telluride property for sale I chose Steve because of his excellent reputation and his knowledge of the Telluride market and surrounding areas. Steve far surpassed my expectations as an agent. Although my home was modest in size it was located on 43 acres. Therefore water rights, well drilling, mineral rights and property surveys all came into play. Steve's extensive knowledge regarding all facets of my transaction ensured a smooth and successful outcome. He and his staff were professional and responsive. Steve was an outstanding agent. I highly recommend Steve for your real estate transaction whether modest or grand."
