43+ years of successfully selling Durango Colorado real estate certainly qualifies me as having seen just about everything. There have been funny moments "What do you mean you're going to cash my earnest money check?" And there have been serious moments where we completed a short sale just hours before the foreclosure sale was to occur. My greatest satisfaction comes from knowing that we have the expertise and are able to help those people in what is usually the largest financial transaction of their life. One of our clients once said "We sure are glad that you were at the helm of the ship steering our transaction. A little gray hair behind the ears of the 'captain' sure made these passengers feel safer."
