Showed home in 2012 in Austin, TX.

Back in 2011 I visited the Aspen area and touched base with Lindsay to put some properties together for me to look at. He made a big effort to understand my investment goals and strategy. Prior to making the Aspen area I holidayed in Austin Texas. Lindsay used his extensive networking ability to put me in touch with a local agent in that area also. Prior to arriving in Austin, Lindsay made plans to himself be in the area. Though he said it was in his plans to visit friends I believe it was so I didn't feel any pressure. Once there we looked at few properties and despite being outside his area of local knowledge he was well versed on the market and used his contacts to make sure we had a good local presence. On return to the Aspen area I was amazed and Lindsay's in depth knowledge and professional ability. He just knew the people to talk to from his background within the renovation and building industry and professional services were always at his finger tips for any questions I had that he couldn't answer, which was very seldom. Despite not purchasing on that occasion or subsequently in late 2012 Lindsay keeps me up to date on the market and conditions in his areas without any pressure towards buying. I couldn't recommend Lindsay more highly!

Sold a home in 2012.

I purchased a one bedroom condo in Snowmass Village in 2009. Circumstances changed a couple of years ago and I wanted to put it back on the market. Unfortunately the market had softened since I purchased the condo and my asking price was honestly above market value. Lindsay still entertained my request for the asking price and showed the property for 18 months before I took it off the market without any issues. He did a fantastic job showing the property and advising me on the best way to present it. The fact that he is also in the construction industry is fantastic for construction tips, and all my real estate advice.

Since then I have purchased 3 properties through Lindsay and still have my Snowmass condo. When I do decide to sell it again I will definitely use Lindsay.

Showed home in 2013.

Lindsay took us multiple properties. We found one that we liked but after Lindsay reviewed the HOA documents and the contract he found a few red flags that weren't acceptable to us that we never would have found on our own. Lindsay has never stopped searching and i am confident and excited that he will find the perfect home for us.

Sold a home in 2012.

I purchased a high end property that was ski in and ski out on Aspen mountain in 2012. Lindsay was the person who brought the listing to me as he new I would be interested. The property was great the price was high. Some how, some way Lindsay negotiated with the seller to adjust his price expectations of what real market value for this property was. Over a 12 month period Lindsay kept me informed regularly in a way that was not aggressive or over the top but enough so I knew where the process was up to at any time.

I have recommended Lindsay to alot of my friends in Aspen who are both buyers and sellers and they have the same great experience as I have. Thanks again Lindsay and Maryanne and myself would like to wish you continued success.

Sold a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $1.35M in Aspen, CO.

Lindsay helped us find a home in aspen core in 2013. He was very patient and showed us everything so we could make an informed choice. His local knowledge was great and made our final decision an easy one. His negotiation skills were fantastic so that we got the best deal possible. My fiancé and I were impressed with his honesty and integrity and we will continue to have lindsay represent us in our real estate transactions.

Sold a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $225K in Carbondale, CO.

Lindsay was a great help in purchasing this property. I am an overseas buyer, and really needed someone to help me on the ground in the States. Lindsay was that person, he took care of just about everything for me. From the initial spotting of the property, to inspections, reports, etc, before purchasing. His opinion was valuable, he was truthful and knowledgeable of the area, rental prices, expected yield, etc. All of this information turned out to be spot on, and I am grateful for it. I was very happy when I eventually saw the property 3 months after purchasing, Lindsay had picked very well.

The overseas purchasing process could also have been a nightmare, but Lindsay helped me out with this as well, so that it ran extremely smoothly. Everything was done in a timely fashion, he helped with arranging structural inspections, legal documents, and eventual final signing of documents.

Overall, I could not be happier with the full service Lindsay provides. He is conscientious, knowledgeable, and shows a passion for helping. Because of this, I have since used Lindsay to buy 2 other properties, and find tenants for each one of these.

Bought a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $1.35M in Aspen, CO.

I highly recommend Lindsay. We recently closed on a house just outside the Core in Aspen. Lindsay was extremely knowledgable of the process and information we needed as future home-owners. Specifically, he worked with us to understand every aspect of the HOA documents.

Lindsay was always available to meet or show the property - even on weekends and in the evening. He made us feel comfortable with every step of the purchase process. He negotiated heavily on price. In the beginning of the negotiation, Lindsay worked out a fair value of the property recommending that we did not cave to a higher price. The seller was far above that "fair market" price. Throughout a two week negotiating period (of which most of the time we were out of the county) - Lindsay professional "moved the needle" ultimately convincing the seller to our price with a quick close.

We have lived in our new house for over six months and could not be happier. Lindsay was able to give us the information we needed to make the best decision possible.
