Some of the luxury properties I have helped clients purchase...
I take great pride in helping clients negotiate a favorable deal. Below are excellent examples to some of the luxury properties I have helped clients acuqire,and as you will see below, it isn't only price that was important. I feel flattered when buyers seek my services to help them purchase some of Steamboat's most luxurious, and at times complex, properties. It gives me an opportunity to use my 30+ years of industry experience. What can I help you negotiate?
One Steamboat Place
Dear Doug... We wanted to thank you for all the help with purchasing our unit at One Steamboat Place. The whole condo search sure got a lot easier once you got involved. You handled all the legwork for us and were invaluable once we left Steamboat and have been doing everything long distance. And I really appreciate the advice around the offer and counter-offer levels - you were spot on. We definitely need to get together for dinner or drinks when we get back out there. Caroline will be there in late March but I might not make it back out until summer unless I can sneak in a long weekend. Thanks again - we’re happy to be owners in Steamboat Springs.
