Selling A Home Seamlessly

Colter Smith recently helped with the sale of our home in the West End. Not only did we receive top dollar for our home, but the entire process was smooth and stress-free thanks to Colter’s hard work and dedication. We knew we were in good hands and can confidently recommend Colter for any future listings.

Genuine Professionals

My family chose to list with Colter Smith because of his grasp of market conditions and the realities involved in selling a complicated property. Colter took the time to completely familiarize himself with the parcel’s conservation easement, use restrictions, development rights, and a multitude of details that affected the property. He personally oversaw each of the many requirements necessary for a successful sale. We’re fortunate to have worked with him. In a very crowded field Colter and Aspen Associates stand out as genuine professionals.

Phenomenal job with simultaneous closings

We gave Ryan Elston the unenviable task of simultaneous closings as we sold one condo and moved into another – on the same day. He was phenomenal. When things got complicated and I told him to think of our money as if it was his own and not lose it- he took care of everything. I didn’t have to worry. I have been a realtor in Denver and Miami and am happy to pay Ryan’s commission in exchange for his expertise and Aspen knowledge.


The great thing about Aspen Associates is that they actually work together. If Ryan was unavailable for any reason, one of his colleagues would be immediately taking care of us. In an industry where hard work and knowledge are not always the norm, Ryan and his associates stand out!! I have already recommended him to many friends and will continue to do so!!!

Always available for our questions

Ashley Chod was a true professional and extremely helpful in assisting us with our purchase. Ashley was always available for our questions and to visit properties. Her knowledge and insight of the area was also beneficial. In addition, Ashley always had our best interest as her priority.

Extremely helpful with our out-of-state purchase

We would highly recommend Ashley and PJ. They were very responsive and extremely helpful with our out of state purchase. Their market knowledge and local contacts were very helpful during the purchase process.

Truly understands the market in Aspen

Found the perfect condo! Truly understands the market in aspen. Colter’s background in construction and finance and local understanding put him ahead of the competition after i interviewed multiple realtors.

Paid great attention to detail regarding financial matters.

Colter Smith has helped me find a townhouse in the greater Aspen/Colorado area. He was highly dependable and knew the market well. More so he paid great attention to detail regarding financial matters, which paid off in choosing one property over another one.

Patient and professional throughout the process.

Colter has been such a great asset in helping us navigate our real estate goals over the last 5 years. He helped us sell a very difficult property and was patient and professional throughout the process. He also helped us find and close on a commercial office space very quickly. Most recently, he found a property that we ended up purchasing…after showing us countless properties over the years…he finally found us a rare one that fit our very specific needs and budget. We are truly grateful for his insight and knowledge of the complex market in this valley and would definitely recommend Colter and work with him on future transactions.

Cared about finding us the best possible fit for our first home.

We worked with Monica Viall of Aspen Associates in 2014 to buy our first house in Carbondale, CO. Being first-time homeowners can be stressful and confusing because everything is new to you but while we searched for the perfect home Monica was patient with us. She explained the things we didn’t understand and made the process easy while staying in our price range. We looked at so many homes before buying and she was always available to help us with our decision.

We felt very comfortable in a process that can be complicated because she was very trustworthy and cared about finding us the best possible fit for our first home. Now, we have bought our new home and love it. We would definitely use Monica Viall of Aspen Associates again when purchasing another home in the future.
