During Recession,
there was little
new construction

void in new product.
New product sales

now are raising

See recent 2/23/17 WSJ
on 
luxury home sales,
"High-end home sellers

across the country are

offering discounts as

luxury market softens...

Buyers are very price

sensitive...If it’s not

priced right it’s going to
sit until the cows come
home...expensive

trophy estates have

generally become

challenging to sell

to today’s ...millennial

buyers....these behemoth

trophy properties… have

become very hard to sell

to the people who can

afford them.”

  MISSION: To educate and inform like no other - to provide timely, indispensable and actionable market information and analysis on Aspen real estate with a forthright, objective and professional lens.

 

You can’t sell a product unless people trust you and the best way to get them to trust you is to tell the truth even if it may be something they don’t want to hear. If you say everything’s good, your audience is going to be skeptical.

I’ve been writing and publishing the primary market guide for Aspen Snowmass real estate and property information for over ten years. During the dark days of the Great Recession, I was the only voice telling it like is. And I'm still delivering: objective information.

If you are a buyer or seller of Aspen real estate, the Estin Report is intended as an introduction to my brokerage services. The old saying "An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure" is absolutely true when vetting and hiring an Aspen broker. It's a big ticket decision with serious consequences for you, your family, your future - either big mistakes, muddling in the middle or total satisfaction.

Who are you going to call...? Sing: Ghostbusters!

My goal is to help clients get the most value for their real estate buying or selling decisions and to deliver the goods, the results. I'm bottom line oriented and a straight-shooter. You'll get the juice and my knowledge right from the horses mouth before it's second hand. See what clients and experts say. Please call 970.309.6163 or email me to start a conversation to help you with your real estate situation.
