What our clients are saying.
My wife and I were interested in buying a second home in Colorado. We started looking on-line in the Durango & Pagosa Springs area. Almost immediately we received a follow-up e-mail from Brian, just stating if we had any questions or needed any help he was there. We have dealt with several different realtors in the past in different parts of the country. It seems that most of them are always trying to push you in a certain direction that benefits them or their agency based upon the cost or whom the listing is through. That was not the case with Brian, we made multiple trips to the area and Brian showed us over 30 different properties partly because we weren't sure which area we wanted to be in nor were we sure of exactly what kind of property we wanted. We never felt any pressure from Brian trying to sway us in any direction. He has a vast knowledge of the area and was there to answer any and all of questions. After we found the place we wanted he was there to help negotiate the best deal possible for us. What is really special about Brian is his after the sale attention. Most realtors you don't hear from after they get their commission. In our case, we hear from Brian on a monthly regular basis. We have a couple of upgrades that we wanted to do to our place and Brian has volunteered to help with meeting contractors at the place for us when we have not been able to be there. I would truly recommend Brian if you are looking to buy or sell real estate in southwestern Colorado.Joe R.
My wife and I live in Gilbert AZ, and recently purchased a second home in Durango. Finding just the right home for our family and working through the buying process from out of state seemed daunting to say the least. From the moment we first met Jeff he made us feel comfortable and confident. He patiently guided us through our search for the perfect home while helping us think of all the little details we needed to consider for living in a new area. Once we found the right home for us, Jeff negotiated a great price and took care of all the logistics. This included personally meeting with the home inspector and staying with him through the entire inspection process so we wouldn’t have to make a separate trip up from Gilbert. Jeff is a man of great integrity and character and he went above and beyond the call for us. We are blessed to now count him as our friend and we look forward to visiting with him every chance we get when we are in Durango.Mark & Stephanie F.
Ryan was so awesome!!! I never once felt pressured which was so important. He was very laid back let us look around without hawking :) Never pushed his opinion but always had a great response when asked. When it came down to the purchasing he brought his A game. Definitely will be a returning customer to Ryan in a few years and I will always recommend him.
House hunting was an enjoyable adventure with a broker who has become a friend for life. Jeff Brown listened to our wants and needs, extracted the important criteria from the “laundry list” and delivered the perfect home. As long-distance clients we were concerned about the amount of travel and time away from our business that might be required for an effective and thorough Durango area home search. Our fears were needless. Jeff carefully researched and previewed prospective homes and compiled a short list for us to visit. From the short list we selected three properties, made our offers and ultimately ended with the property that was Jeff’s first pick for us initially (incredible-the first house he showed us!). Jeff handled the entire purchase process and kept us informed throughout. Everything was organized and efficient. We love our place…thanks to Jeff.Russell and Sandra B.
Kim Rodgers was my Broker. I did not know her prior to my search for a condo at Tamarron. It was pure luck that I found her. We connected the first time we met. She gave me 110% all the time. Any question I had about Tamarron or any of the condos she answered. If she didn't have the information then she reached out to her contacts and found the answers. I trusted Kim to give me her honest opinion on each property she showed me while I visited Durango. As an out of state buyer I had lots of questions for her and I trusted Kim immensely to look out for my best interest not her commission. As an out of state buyer I didn't have a lot of time to spend in Durango looking at available properties. No problem, Kim would go to condos for a viewing and video taped each one then sent the videos to me. She even Faced Timed a condo viewing with me. Kim was always very timely with responding to my requests. I ended up putting a contract offer in for a condo I only saw via video. Was I a bit apprehensive? Yes, but I had such trust in Kim and her opinion. All our electronic communication from texts to contracts went smoothly. Kim told me I would love the condo I never saw in person prior to the final walk-through and she was absolutely right. I consider myself so lucky to have "accidentally" found Kim as my broker. I love my condo and I'm honored to call Kim a friend. Thank you Kim for being such a hard worker, trust worthy, and for your friendship! Choosing you as my broker was the most important decision I had to make in my search.Mary K.
Ryan was a real pro and we had fun working with him. I would highly recommend Ryan to anyone. Ryan’s ability to listen and recommend ideas that matched our wants and needs, made all the difference.Thomas and Sherri
Ryan Poppe is a real estate agent for EVERYONE. Professional, funny, intelligent, and extremely intuitive to our needs. His vast knowledge of Durango and his overwhelming desire to help us find the right home has enriched our lives... no joke. This guy is the best.Tim and Leah
Jeff, throughout this whole procedure you have demonstrated the best service I've experienced in my 84 years--from anyone, at any stage, at any age along the long, long road. Your service has continued even over the weekend. You went to bat for my wife and me every step. Believe me, Jeff, we hugely appreciate what you have done--and continue to do. If you have any occasion, please feel entirely free to use us for any promotional purpose. Everlasting thanks.Harry and Barbara
Ryan was amazing. He went out of his way to help me sell the house. I would highly recommend his service.
Ryan was great!! We knew what we were looking for and had a hard time finding it due to lack of options. Ryan was always great about finding ideas and showing us some items not really on our list but close to it so we could all be sure we really knew what we wanted. Last house we looked at had only been on the market a few days. When we walked in he commented on the entry way closet that I had been wanting. It seems small but really made me appreciate that he was paying attention to even the small details. We made an offer on the house that day and were able to close on it within a month. Hope we never have to buy again, but I'd go to him in a heartbeat if we did.
Tim Papi was our agent, with Re/Max Colorado property group. He did a fantastic job working with us. We spent a good six months in search of the perfect condo/loft. He never pressured, always on time, was always eager to meet any requests we made, and most importantly was extremely flexible with our schedule. After the sale, he continues to be our eyes on the ground(so to speak). We use him as a resource for referrals for a handyman, house cleaning, even auto repair. We highly recommend him to work with when purchasing or selling property. Michael and LindaLinda and Michael
I cannot recommend Ryan enough. He was extremely patient, helpful and knowledgabCharlie and Beverly Z.
le during our home buying process - which was made even more difficult as we were buying in Colorado while living in Texas! He went out of his way to ensure we saw the homes we wanted to during a short visit to the area, then answered any and all of our questions while we made a decision. He's the best realtor we've ever worked with. So glad we found him.
Tim was absolutely a pleasure to work with. I admire his initiative in reaching out to me as I visited web listings continuously. Throughout the entire process, he was nothing but helpful, especially being on site at the contracted property for various tests I couldn’t be present for. I couldn’t be happier than to have worked with and befriended Tim as he helped me buy my new home. Just a great experience!!!Benjamin D.
"Ryan is an amazing agent! He worked so hard on finding us the perfect home and was very knowledgeable about the homes he showed us! Thank you again Ryan. You ROCK!"Crystal and Joe B.
Ryan Poppe was very knowledgeable, patient and found me a home that I love. He went above and beyond to make me feel comfortable and make sure I knew what going on every step of the way. He was great and I would definitely recommend him to others.
We have used Jeff Brown as our realtor for 5 years. He is an excellent realtor, with a vast knowledge of Durango and the surrounding areas. He is extremely easy to work with, his follow up is impeccable, and as a long time resident of Durango is very familiar with local contacts/referrals (builders, bankers, etc). We have recommended friends to him and they have all been very pleased with his skills. We would highly recommend Jeff to anyone and should we have any future real estate needs, will not hesitate to call him.Dr. Jeff and Debra May
