Laurie Huggins, Broker / Partner
In this world where transparency reigns and everything seems accessible with a few internet searches, what is the value of working with an experienced Realtor like me?
My experience will benefit you. I know where the sun lingers and the snow collects, where the buses run, which districts qualify for reduced rate rec center and golf passes, or have sidewalks or dog parks or trailheads. That condo that looks dated at first blush - it might be walking distance to a performing arts center or slated for an update in the near future. I’ll use my experience to find you the home most valuable to you and complementary to your lifestyle.
While I want you to love me for me, I know what’s really important is how I have performed for my past clients and how I will perform for you. That said, here are some statistics to demonstrate my productivity:
2017 - 22 transactions with $12,897,000 in gross sales: I sold 14 listings and closed with 9 buyers
2016 - 35 transactions with $20,983,000 in gross sales: I sold 19 listings and closed with 16 buyers
2015 - 34 transactions with $16,834,500 in gross sales: I sold 18 listings and closed with 16 buyers
2014 - 19 transactions with $10,898,000 in gross sales: I sold 12 listings and closed with 7 buyers
2013 - 28 transactions with $12,315,047 in gross sales: I sold 13 listings and closed with 15 buyers
2012 - 17 transactions with $9,896,500 in gross sales: I sold 7 listings and closed with 10 buyers
While our changing market dictates a bit of fluctuation in buyers vs. sellers, I have a broad base of committed clients that come back to work with me and continually refer their friends and family. This is the backbone of my business and the core of my mission statement.
My goal is to consistently exceed my client’s expectations. To listen and HEAR what my clients want and to respond and communicate in a way that is most effective for them. I am not working for single transactions but for life long relationships. I strive to be the person my clients and friends come to for local information, restaurant recommendations and of course all things real estate. To keep a close connection and anticipate their investment needs, their family needs and their friend’s needs. I want my clients to know they can rely on my area expertise, professionalism and capacity for compassion and understanding.
I understand that this can be a long process, and you need to know that’s ok! Buying a home - whether first time buyer or second home owner, investment or lifestyle commitment - is a big deal, and I am not only speaking to price. It is a big emotional and mental commitment as well. Please know that I am committed to taking the time to help you understand our market from all relevant angles and work with you until we find the perfect property for you and your family.
To that end, I will use all resources available to me, including our high-tech company website and tech tools like video and mapping features. You will have the full force of the powerful network I have developed and the support team I have surrounded myself with as a Realtor in this market for over 15 years. While every buyer is different, I am committed to learning about your priorities and how best to fulfill those for you.
With a 15 year history selling real estate in the Breckenridge/Summit County area, I have a deep understanding for both what is necessary to get your property sold while simultaneously being sensitive to what an emotional process this can be.
Each of my listings are professionally photographed. I work with you beforehand to make sure your home presents as desirably as possible. I may suggest staging or decluttering or painting and will help you to accomplish these vital steps to maximize the value we realize for your home. This is one of the most powerful tools we have today. My partners at Breckenridge Associates and I are continually working to utilize the most current and visible marketing platforms. With technology ever evolving, it is important to understand the most impactful and effective ways to attract buyers. Today I am focused on my personal website and our company website in addition to a strong presence on realtor.com and other major syndication sites. I do understand that print media is still an important piece of a successful campaign. From our in-house Source catalog of properties magazine, to monthly mail pieces, to targeted areas - this is a tried and true method. I would be happy to prepare a listing presentation for you at any time. Contact me with your e-mail address and I will have that to you within 24 hours.
I have always enjoyed working with people and helping people. In my current profession that means helping people realize their dreams of home ownership and sharing everything I love about living in the mountains. I have lived in this area since 1995 - from Copper Mountain to Fairplay, Breckenridge to Frisco. I have been a licensed Realtor for 15+ years, starting with Prudential Timberhill in 1999. I was a consistent top producer, selling over $10 million in real estate every year. I moved over to Breckenridge Associates in 2007 and became the Managing Broker in our office from 2010 thru 2013. Those 4 years taught me more about the nuances of real estate and human relations then my entire previous career. I feel that the skills I acquired as Managing Broker are a huge asset to my clients and I am grateful for having had the opportunity. Let me share with you my extensive local knowledge, my love and passion for the mountains and my expertise and professionalism to realize your dream of owning property in the mountains. Every transaction is a big deal to you and to me… let’s work together to accomplish what matters to you!
