Success Story! Breckenridge, CO

Summit County’s second-home market is very competitive, and it can be overwhelming for buyers especially if they aren’t always in Summit.  This fall Molly helped a wonderful couple find their perfect Breckenridge escape. There were a couple hiccups along the way, but Molly helped them navigate each part of the transaction and get to closing day happy and content!

Don’t just take our word for it, hear from the happy homeowner!

2018 Workforce Housing Business Assistance Program

Success for local businesses is directly related to having qualified, reliable employees. Many local employers struggle to find, hire and retain employees due to the difficulty in finding housing. Furthermore, many employees leave the County because it is too difficult to make ends meet.

The Town of Silverthorne has created the Workforce Housing Business Assistance Program to promote the creation of new long-term workforce housing inventory. The Workforce Housing Business Assistance Program provides incentives to businesses to help fund the addition of employee units to the local workforce housing stock.

The Town will consider Workforce Housing Development Assistance to Silverthorne businesses that undertake capital investments that bring additional unit(s) of deed restricted, workforce housing to the County.

To finish learning more about this program the Town of Silverthorne has put together check out the application here.

Success Story! Dillon, CO

Spring was a very competitive time for buyers in Summit County. That’s when a young couple was trying their best to get into their first home. Anne went to bat for the couple on multiple properties and was able to secure the couple one of their favorites in Dillon, CO! Helping them navigate the tough transaction process was Anne’s number one priority.

Don’t just take our word for it, hear from the happy homeowner!

Everyone always says that buying a house is the most stressful thing in life… I never felt this way at all while working with Anne! She always had our best interests in mind, kept us on track, helped us through the complicated contracts and overall made us feel secure in our decisions from start to finish. She’s an amazing agent to have on your team!- (E.S. 4/18 Facebook)
