Ratings & Reviews

My wife and I purchased a beautiful property just outside of Durango this past February utilizing Sondra's expertise. Purchasing a home can be a stressful endeavor not to mention the added anxiety of purchasing a vacation property nearly 1,000 miles away from our primary residence. Fortunately we had Sondra to mitigate the stresses and to take care of all the details to make our purchase a reality. Though we had seen the exterior of the property during a driving tour of Colorado last Summer and loved what we saw we knew we took quite a risk in making a decision on the purchase without having walked through the home ourselves. Sondra provided the expert continuity, on-site support and due diligence we needed to get timely feedback on our seemingly endless questions, coordinate all of the property closing details and to make our dream a reality. Having purchased many homes in the past we can honestly say Sondra has provided a level of service we had not experienced before in a Real Estate transaction. My wife and I are thrilled to own the property and to call her not only our trusted Real Estate professional but our friend as well. We hold her in the highest regard and would be proud to refer he to anyone seeking peace of mind in transacting Real Estate in Colorado.

Bought a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $275K in Durango, CO.

Sondra has the locals' touch. She knows where to look, who to collaborate with, and when to make bold yet careful decisions. Sondra often made me feel like I was her only client in the way she made herself available at a moments' notice. When i think of all the positive aspects of home-ownership, I will always inevitably and gratefully think of Sondra Joyce. She rocks!

Bought a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $675K in Durango, CO.

Sondra was instrumental in making our purchase smooth and fun. She also went the extra mile in helping us with things outside the scope of her agreement, this made a huge difference in a stress free transaction.

Her focus was towards us the buyer and achieving our goals, ie. location, quality, and last but not least, price. Sondra knows how to get things done!

For a positive buying experience in Colorado just call Sondra, I'm glad we did.

Thank you Duke! I so enjoyed working with you and your family. We stuck to your top 3 wishes and found a superb family retreat very close to town. I hope you enjoy the views, the wildlife and the sunsets from your deck and all that Durango has to offer!

Bought a Single Family home in 2013 in Durango, CO.

We loved working with Sondra and with her help, found the home that met all our needs perfectly! Throughout the process we felt cared for, that she working solely for our best interests. We had so many questions about the property and she repeatedly, very quickly, researched and answered our questions. I felt like I could trust her with my personal data as well as trust her to follow through with any questions or concerns. She was extremely knowledgable about every aspect of the process which made the process go very smoothly. Working with Sondra as an exclusive buyers agent was the perfect way to buy a home.

Showed home in 2013 in Trimble, Rico, CO 81301.

When my wife and I decided we wanted to purchase a second house in Colorado, we began looking for a broker to help us with the purchase. It had been many years since we purchased a house, so it took some time to get back up to speed on how to approach things, but in the end we decided we wanted to work with an exclusive buyer’s agent. After some investigation and checking of reviews, we contacted Sondra about our needs for help in finding a Colorado house. We had some email exchanges and phone conversations with her and decided she would be a good choice to help us, so we retained her services. Our first challenge in finding a house was deciding where in Colorado we wanted to locate. Sondra works in the Durango area, which was one area of Colorado we were interested in, but we also wanted to look at Summit County and Colorado Springs before making a decision on a location for a purchase. Since Sondra works mainly in the Durango area, she was kind enough to help us locate exclusive buyer’s agents in both Summit County and Colorado Springs to assist us in evaluating those areas in making our decision on location. After making contact with the other agents, we made a “tour” of the three areas, starting with Durango, looking at properties as a part of making a decision on where to buy. When we visited Durango, Sondra did an excellent job in helping us get to know Durango and the surrounding area and in showing us the types of real estate available that would best meet our needs. The significant efforts she made identifying properties before our trip were instrumental in helping narrow the list of available properties down to a manageable size for our trip. Her long residency in the Durango area obviously contributed to her ability to answer all our questions. She listens carefully, and she has a pleasant, supportive and encouraging style that we found to be helpful. Her recommendations for brokers in Colorado Springs and Summit County were very good as well, and both of those brokers were helpful to us in evaluating properties in their areas and in making a decision on where to purchase. In the end, we liked the Summit County area best and we currently have an offer pending on a property there. While we did not use Sondra’s services to make a purchase, we can highly recommend her for anyone interested in making a purchase in the Durango area.

Greetings and thank you so much for taking the time to write about your experience in working with my company and me as an Exclusive Buyers Agent. Though I would love to have you as a neighbor, I feel we diligently looked at what would work best for you and your extended family for a vacation home in Colorado, and the Summit Co area fit your particular needs. I look forward to connecting should you travel to this area, and wish you the very best!

Bought a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $500K in Bayfield, CO.

Sondra helped us find and negotiate the purchase of our home near Durango. Her expertise, knowledge of the area, and local contacts are superb. Moreover, she remained very committed to diligently addressing all of the details throughout the purchase and closing process. On top of that, she has a very postive attitude and pleasant personality - and is a real pleasure to work with.

We would recommend Sondra to anyone seeking a property in this area.

Bought a home in 2013.

Sondra provides a laid back, relaxing experience, in what otherwise is a very emotional decision making process. She gives her honest opinion about the different aspects of properties, and has the investment experience necessary to guide you in your decision.

My wife and I were in a hurry to find a condo in the Durango area that was located centrally to the downtown area and affordable- almost impossible, I know. Sondra recommended a property that was for sale by owner, taking on twice the work that she had bargained for. Sondra advised us on the amount that we should offer, took care of all the nitty-gritty details as far as mortgage brokers, closing agents, inspections, appraisals, etc... She held our hand through the entire process, negotiating with the seller on our behalf. We closed on a great condo, only 45 days after we met Sondra. Sondra, you are the bomb!

We were very satisfied with Sondra, and we highly recommend her services as a buyer's agent. She is hard working, enthusiastic, and an overall lovely person.

Thanks, Sondra for a helping us with our real estate needs!

Bought a home in 2013 in Piedra, Bayfield, CO 81122.

Sondra was very helpful in finding me a house for this first time homebuyer!! Sondra is very knowledgable of her service area. We started our search in Durango and looked at a number of townhomes, and then went to Mancos, and then out to Three Springs to look at houses. None of the townhomes or houses seemed to be what I was looking for. We then extended our search for my first house out to Bayfield to look at new homes. We found a builder that had built a number of new homes out in Bayfield. Sondra has been there all the way for me from Mancos to Bayfield and townhomes to new homes. Her knowledge was very helpful for me to end up in my new house. Thanks Sondra, for all that you have done for me in this real estate market that can be overwelming for a first time home buyer!!!

Bought a home in 2012 in Trimble, Rico, CO 81301.

We were lucky enough to have Sondra recommended to us by our sellers' realtor in Wisconsin. In the course of a week, she helped us find a home for our family of five in Edgemont Highlands in Durango, CO. Her local and professional experience are impressive and we highly recommend her to anyone looking to buy in her service area!

I have been working with Sondra for almost a month now looking for a new place to hang my hat. She is most enjoyable to work with. Sensitive to my needs, patient to help me find just what works for me financially and aesthetically, and communicates on a regular basis with ideas and new properties that come forth. Buying a home can be a terrifying experience for some. Sondra will make you feel at ease with your decisions by sharing knowledge and understanding the situation and requirements of each client that she works with. If you are looking for someone to help you find the perfect home then look no farther...... she is the one for you!!
