Consulting Services

Although my core real estate practice is buyer representation, my extensive knowledge of the resort real estate industry (acquired over the past 30+ years) has provided me with the ability to assist clients under a wide array of applications.  I always look forward to the challenge of working with individual clients to meet their needs and achieve their goals.  My consulting services can be tailored to suit each client and include, but are not limited to, the following services:

For Individuals
If you are seeking to purchase (or even sell) a particular property in the Steamboat Springs area or perhaps elsewhere, and would benefit from my knowledge and professional guidance, please consider some of the following ways I could be of service:

> Buying Real Estate Outside Steamboat Springs - Assisting clients interested in purchasing property in geographic areas outside Steamboat Springs.  This can be achieved by either a personal assignment or to locate the highest qualified real estate agent (preferably an exclusive buyer broker) in your desired location.  There are over 1 million REALTORS in the USA; I have established numerous professional relationships with top-quality brokers throughout the industry and would be happy to recommend the broker best suited for your personal needs.

> Selling Your Steamboat Property - Assisting those interested in selling their Steamboat Springs property by matching your property and personality with the highest qualified listing agent.  There are over 300 REALTORS in the Steamboat Springs MLS, and I would be happy to help you locate the best agent to most effectively market your property.

> Unique Search - Seeking an unlisted, hard-to-find or unique property?  I enjoy a challenge and have the knowledge, judgment, patience and work ethic to succeed in locating the most difficult type of properties that meet your needs.

> Property Research / Valuation - Conducting various studies / reports to determine accurate property valuations, including:
Comparative market analysis
Broker price opinions
Property history reports

> FSBO or Private Party Purchase - Assisting clients on a For Sale By Owner, unlisted or private purchase.  Buying real estate is a complicated endeavor and most likely the biggest investment one will make.  If you have already located a property or would like to pursue a property that is not listed for sale, I would be able to assist in the negotiation, valuation, contracting, due diligence and closing processes.

I have extensive experience in conducting research for banks, private parties,  government agencies and expert witness testimony .

The above assignments are offered on an hourly, referral, fee, contract or retainer basis.

For Developers

By offering a personal, one-on-one service, clients appreciate working directly with a reliable and seasoned professional able to conduct confidential and complex assignments.  From stand-alone projects to master planned resort communities, my clientele have placed their confidence in my ability to understand their needs while providing the guidance, insight and leadership necessary to realize their investment goals

  • Site Selection and Negotiation
  • Feasibility Analysis
  • Due Diligence Administration
  • Strategic Planning

This experience has included numerous resort areas spanning both eastern and western markets.
