Melissa and SSF got the job done.

We priced our unit aggressively and had our first offer within 24 hours. We were under contract in 48hours. It was quick, easy and we got exactly what we wanted.

If your expectations are to work with the best; highly recommend the Swinford/Rimel team to any party requiring a positive buy and/or selling of real property.

Their "tag team" managing approach offers a professional experience combined with a bit of humor during the process. Great job!

John D. Roeland

Sarah is a very skilled realtor who sold both my properties within three months of being listed.

Her negotiation skills are impressive and I was very happy with the prices obtained on each of my properties. She is personable and works well with her clients, truly listening to what is important to them. She is patient and never hurried a transaction for a quick commission, but worked diligently to optimize the sale of my properties. She is an extremely knowledgeable and professional realtor who dedicates her time and effort to serving her clients.

Monica helped us buy and sell our property in Snowmass.

We would recommend her for her responsiveness and knowledge of Snowmass.

13531 Snowmass Village

Margi represented me initially in Property Management of my Condo and then initiating an offer , managing the process and then selling my Condo.

In addition she organized minor maintenance and removal / sale of the condo 's furniture. Margi's professionalism , support and hard work made the sale very stress free. There were many times when the purchaser was over demanding and difficult to satisfy. Margi calmly managed the issues and the sale proceeded smoothly. I would unhesitatingly recommend Margi as a competent, friendly professional who is a pleasure to work with.

Bobby Sly

Gerald by far is the best real estate agent we have ever used and we have bought and sold many houses over the past 45 years.

He went beyond our expectations in handling our purchase - as we are out of state purchasers and Gerald handled everything. He kept us on track for accomplishing a very smooth settlement and we are very appreciative of his knowledgeable, professional handling of our purchase. Gerald is not only our real estate agent he is now a very important friend in our lives. We are so lucky to have connected with him.

Pamela Popielarski

Taylor has just been phenomenal in our help with the purchase at OneSnowMass.

She is super responsive in her communication, never had to wait more than a few hours ever, and has always followed up on our questions and asks promptly. Would recommend her to others and use her if we are ever looking for a property in that area.

Anshul Rawat

Ed and Brent are extremely professional and you feel in good hands with them!

McNeill Management

Taylor was simply fantastic to work with in connection with our purchase at One Snowmass.

With her comprehensive knowledge of the property and the residence club program, Taylor could answer all of my questions right off the bat. Taylor was also incredibly responsive. Taylor is a tremendous agent and SSF is fortunate to have her.

Marc Levy

Corrie was in constant communication with me through the process.

If I had questions she didn’t hesitate to answer or return a call. Very easy transaction when the home sold. Highly recommend a call to her if you are buying or selling.

Trudy Fleming

Ed Swinford was our realtor when we originally purchased the vacation property in Bachelor Gulch.

Ed is a top notch realtor and fantastic person. There was no question Ed would also handle our sale. In the meantime Ed added Brent Rimel to the team. Brent turned out to be as efficient and enjoyable to work with as Ed. We highly recommend both Ed and Brent.

Judith Newman

I have known and worked with Ed for more than 10 years, and was introduced to Brent about three years ago.

Ed bought me my first place here, and recently sold it and helped me with the current home which I love. They are a fabulous team, and both always go above and beyond with their help to find the right place and get the ones for sale sold. Most importantly both are people of utmost integrity, and fund to spend time with to boot.

Bettina Eckerle

Roger was excellent, conscientious, professional and compassionate.

We were selling my father's home after his passing. He lead me and my sister through the process and we were very happy with the results. He went above and beyond what could be expected as an agent.

Kellly Stillings

I have known Margi as a friend for 20 years.

Not only has she been my friend, but she has handled several real estate transactions for me over the years. In 2019, she handled a condo sale for me in Basalt and brought in top dollar results.  Whether it’s a small sale or a large one, Margi will work equally as hard to bring you the results you are looking for. 

Nell Graham

We feel grateful and fortunate to have had Brent Rimel as our realtor.

In addition to being professional, thorough, and timely at every step in the process, Brent went above and beyond what we would expect from any realtor. Brent spent an inordinate amount of time with us showing property and answering additional questions on the phone. He thoroughly researched every detail of the property we were interested in and went out of his way to introduce us to the community. Brent demonstrated a remarkable depth of knowledge of the Vail Valley and has continued to be an incredible resource on multiple fronts. He is both professional and personable. Throughout the transaction, Brent acted with tremendous integrity and always had our best interest in mind. We highly recommend Brent Rimel and Slifer Smith and Frampton.

Jennifer Holmes

Margi has been extraordinarily helpful in anticipating our questions and needs in fulfilling our wish list.

She has made our transition to Colorado exciting and fun.

Mike was easy to work with.

It's my first time buying Land, and he filled me in on what to look for and made the process very easy.

Juan Palmarez Gallegos

Gerald is a great Realtor.

He was patient, professional and persistent. He was always immediate and clear with all deadlines. I felt like he knew what I wanted before I even knew. The house he picked out for me has been beyond me expectations in every way!!!

Wendy Anderson

Brent, much like his father Lee, a former agent with SSF, is a true professional.

Brent was always one step ahead and extremely well prepared to handle both our purchase and sale of our Eagle Ranch home. Brent, Ed and their team are a joy to work with and go the extra mile. As my wife and I were both required to be out of state during the final closing of our Eagle Ranch home, a few items missed our attention and Brent jumped in and handled each item without hesitation, that is going the extra mile. Brent during the purchase of our home was beyond prepared and worked hard to help us find that perfect home, his honest and open approach saved us time and emotional stress. Thank you Brent! hope you and your family stay involved with Eagle County and SSF for many years to come. best Tom and Lori Cartwright

Great experience.

Taylor was very accommodating and helpful. We bought two units at ONEsnowmass and were only looking at one. We found ONEsnowmass on Zillow. There seems to be multiple websites for the one snowmass residence club online which I found confusing. Very happy, Thanks so much!

Scott Hoover

Andrew Albee has become a friend and trusted advisor with extensive real estate resources and a good real estate mind.

Responsive Title, mortgage consulting, photography and accounting services have made our recent transaction predictable and smooth. Andrew's thorough approach made agent to agent communication transparent and friendly, facilitating a straight forward sale resulting in a pleasant post sale experience with the buyer.

Thomas Shumaker

If you need an agent there is no better option the Gerald.

Gerald has been the go-to agent for our whole family, from helping grandparents downsize to helping me buy my first home. I have now moved out of state and become an agent myself, and Gerald is the first agent I refer people to when they need anything in the Valley.

Working with Corrie was the best!

As an investor, I've worked with many realtors before across many markets and Corrie was hands down the most professional, friendliest, down to earth, transparent and had the upmost integrity. I was doing a 1031 so I was on a time crunch and with Corrie's expertise, I was able to lock down a solid invest property within my deadline. I'll definitely be working with her again for future investments. Thank you!

Mariel Leibowitz

I own many properties.

Brent Rimel is by far the best realtor I ever experienced. He goes beyond his role as realtor. He’s definitely on top of his game with negotiations. If I had to rate him 1 out 5 stars he gets a 6 . He’s off the chart !!!

Caesar Bacarella

I would recommend Brent as a broker in the Vail Valley.

He assisted us in buying a house that was contingent on us selling our current home. He is always cool, calm and collected and helped keep my mind at ease during stressful situations. Brent was always available when we needed him and his communication skills were on point!

Mike Eaton has helped me with 3 properties so far and I am looking forward to more in the futture

Margi Crawford has been my realtor since 2002.

She has proven to be fully versed in all things pertaining to real estate. Margi has the integrity, intelligence, and experience to 'put the deal together.' She works hard and she works smart. Thanks to Margi, I own real estate in Aspen and bought it trouble-free and priced right.

This is the 2nd home that I have purchased in the mid-valley area with Mike Eaton as a realtor.

He has been excellent on all fronts! He is an excellent communicator, plus excels w giving more in-depth information in regards to the contract, and gives advice on how to strategize to 'get the contract' if there are multiple offers. Mike has also diffused tense situations in the past between myself (the buyer) and the seller. The real estate transactions have transpired smoothly because of Mike Eaton's skills in communication, his knowledge of the contract and it's applications, his agile thinking and his ability to perceive situations and to strategize - with knowledge of the possible outcomes. All are truly valuable for a buyer in a competitive market. I would highly recommend Mike as a realtor!!!!

She was a problem solver and a great communicator.

Neil Schuster

Professional staff, easy to work with.

Molly Marks

Ross Daniels gave me great information on the opportunity for ownership and that ownership would fit my outdoor lifestyle and get my Land Cruisers into the mountains and ski during the winter and ride the mountain roads on my bike.

He directed me to the best unit for what would work for my family and me. He explained very well the amenities and added benefits of Snowmass and the valley.

Anita Rayburn

Our agent, Roger Proffit was great.

He went above and beyond to help us sell our vacant lot. He always kept us in the loop with timely and thorough communications. His response time to our inquiries was almost always instant but never longer than 24 hours - even on weekends and holidays. Our lot sold for more than our original asking price.

Anthony Petersen

Brent Rimel represented my husband and I on the sale of our existing home in Bachelor Gulch and the purchase of a new home in Beaver Creek.

He and his partner, Ed Swinford, were great communicators and were one step ahead of everything we needed to have smooth transactions''. They were honest and straightforward with all our concerns, including the inspection, repairs, and closing processes. They knew the real estate market in the Vail Valley so well and were able to give us comparisons and stats with prior sales and existing listings (not just theirs but other's too). I can wholeheartedly recommend Brent whether you are buying or selling.

Ellie Landon

Ed and Brent are the best!
