Testimonials

~ Jim Boyle and Marta Riordan 

I recommend that you use Ted Borchelt and Jana Dillard to sell your property.  They sold both our Sopris Mountain Ranch and Basalt houses, and Jana brought the buyer for a condo that my sister had at Snowmass Village.  They work as a team, are smart, very thorough, diligent, tenacious, and always accessible, and have very good judgment.  Also, Ted and Jana will give you a reasoned evaluation of how to price your property.  In short, they are by far the best agents I have dealt with in anywhere that I have sold residential property.  I want to thank you for your substantive efforts, professional approach, and personal style in selling our houses.

~ Michael Joseph

Jana, Thanks for everything!  I could not imagine a team that does it better!  I want to thank you for the incredible job you and Ted did in the sale of our house. You were dogged, efficient and respectful of our time and needs.

~ Roger G.

Ted Borchelt and Jana Dillard are to be commended for an excellent job in selling our riverfront property.  They expertly guided the deal through complications involving tenants, flood plain issues and FEMA.  We wholeheartedly endorse Ted and Jana.

~ Bill P.

Working with Ted and Jana to sell my property in Aspen was a real pleasure.  They cultivated potential buyers and pursued promising leads that led to a fair sale price in a reasonable time. They were very professional, prompt communicators and had clear wisdom about several issue that came up...as they always do.  I was kept well informed of all developments even though I wasn't present in the Aspen area. I would definitely use them again and am happy to recommend them to others.

~ Craig Morris

I’ve been selling real estate and have owned a real estate company in Aspen/Snowmass for over 16 years and Ted and Jana are the finest brokers, capable and willing to competently tackle every real estate related issue that comes up….and in 16 years of real estate, I can tell you that there are many, MANY issues that come up in our business of real estate sales.  You simply cannot find better professionals to work with.

~ Rev. Tom T.

Jana and Ted did a wonderful job from presentation to closing in helping an entire congregation work through a very difficult sale. Your professionalism is second to none! Thank you so much!

~ Barb & Randy

We chose the right brokers, Jana Dillard and Ted Borchelt, with Sotheby’s. We kept pinching ourselves through the short process, when on a whim, we decided to put our house on the market in the middle of winter. It was counterintuitive, but they reassured us that locals do look for homes in the winter. The first week we had three showings, an offer from the 3rd party the very next day, and under contract within days—unbelievable! We kept calling them rock stars as they maintained coolness while navigating the formalities of a horse property with water rights in Carbondale. They know their business and the nuances of the area; we’d recommend them to everyone.

~ Mike and Lisa 

Jana & Ted are a joy to work with!  They helped us to find our dream vacation home using their knowledge, negotiation skills, and constant communication.

~ Dr. Thomas St. John

Ted & Jana successfully navigated me through my first home sale.  Due to their professionalism, they brought me to closure within 6 months, despite the turbulent housing market and despite my insistence that we push the market limits.  Ted's advice was always on point and was invaluable to me throughout the entire process; particularly when it came down to the final negotiations.  

I truly believe that we would not have closed this deal, had I been represented by someone other than this team.  They know the market.  They know real estate...and they are excellent at what they do!

~ Bill and Candy P.

Ted and Jana - The unique ways you marketed my property, how tenacious you both were on the open houses and keeping my property constantly in front of the influx of valley visitors - all combined for a successful sales effort in a difficult market, job well done!

~ Grace H.

Jana and Ted did an in-depth analysis to determine our property values, presented it all professionally and allowed us as a large family living in different locations to understand the market place and make the best decision in listing and selling.  Thank you for all your help!

~ Jim Light

Ted and Jana have become consummate professionals in their field.  They have established the confidence of many buyers and sellers.  Most importantly, they have learned the value of dedicated service and detailed follow-through.

~ Joe & Larkin

Jana & Ted negotiated a very difficult deal and got our property sold.  We are convinced it would not have happened without them!

~ Bob and Carolyn S.

We interviewed several brokers to sell our Snowmass condo.  Jana Dillard impressed us from the start with her preparation and professionalism.  Throughout the process she continually did the little things to keep our condo at the forefront of a crowded market.  We are very happy that we chose her for our sale.

~ Elizabeth & Mike

We met Ted and Jana after having a very bad experience with another realtor in the Valley while trying to sell our house in Basal.  Because of this, we were somewhat reluctant to work with other agents in the area.  In explaining what had happened to them, both Ted and Jana were very understanding.  They also put in the extra time and energy to make sure we felt comfortable working with them throughout the whole sales process.  My husband and I both have very high standards when working with realtors, and Ted and Jana definitely met all of our expectations.  They were always very professional, very respectful and extremely responsive. If one of them was busy and we needed to have a showing done or to engage in negotiations with a potential buyer, or just had questions about something, the other one would step up to the plate immediately.  They also always kept us apprised of what was going on, offered intelligent feedback and advice and worked well with the agents of prospective buyers.  And, all of this paid off almost immediately.  Within a very short period of time, we had two full price offers and the closing process on the sale of the house proceeded very smoothly.  We are currently looking at buying another property in the area and are using Ted and Jana's services again.  We would highly recommend them to anyone looking for honest, hardworking, intelligent and professional real estate agents.

~ John R.

Jana both sold our house and found us a new house. She worked very hard to accomplish this and we appreciate all her efforts. We found her to be very professional, thorough, and organized with very prompt follow up. Most importantly though she new the local market well and how to properly negotiate a deal. We love our new house! Thanks Jana!

~ Julian N.

Ted thinks out of the box.  I was looking for a remote cabin in the woods.  He found a property on the river that was beyond my budget, but by approaching the seller with creative ideas, and by marshalling additional information about engineering and permits, we were able to reach agreement with the seller.  Ted put in a tremendous amount of legwork, and more than earned his fee.

~ Tom K.

I wanted to add my personal thanks to Jana for the very professional manner in which you handled the sale of our home. I know how much work you put into it and the "peace of mind" you gave my wife during the whole process. The sale went infinitely faster than I had ever hoped, due in no small part to your efforts. Please accept my appreciation for a job well done.

~ Ronald N.

I have had the pleasure to work with Ted Borchelt on several real estate deals in the Roaring Fork Valley.  I can confidently recommend him to anyone considering buyer or selling property in the area.

~ Ed C.

Dedicated to making your home sale her priority!

~ Anna & James K.

Working with you is a pleasure.  You are responsive, professional and calm, always available to talk through issues whatever they may be.  I was particularly impressed that you went the extra mile and helped finish addressing the buyer's request to have the construction debris removed on your own time, making the sale go through smoothly from start to finish.

~ Richard P.

My Colorado real estate search began as a “pipe dream” of acquiring a residence that would ultimately become our retirement home.   About three years ago, I contacted Ted Borchelt and gave him a brief description of the type of property I had in mind.  Ted and I looked at several properties many different times over the years.  At one point I told Ted that the timing was just not right to make an offer on a property that was of great interest to us.  I think most realtors would have stopped wasting their time with a client like me, who had told him that I wasn’t going to buy anything at the time.  Most realtors would say, “He’s not a serious buyer.”  But not Ted.  Ted said, “We’ll keep looking.  I figure you’re spending your valuable vacation time to look at properties, and as far as I’m concerned, that’s evidence enough that you are a serious buyer.”  Time after time, Ted kept me updated with new listings, and finally he showed us the house of our dreams.  He professionally guided us through the offer process, the negotiations, the due diligence period, and he even set us up with a local attorney and a property manager.  He made the process almost effortless.  All the while, Ted was the consummate professional, never pushy, always patient, and consistently full of very practical advice.  If you are looking for a pleasant real estate transaction experience, I cannot overstate my strong recommendation that you work with Ted Borchelt.

~ Ginanne D.

Jana Dillard is a dedicated professional.  She not only worked hard for our family, when  push came to shove she came through when we really needed her too.  We recommend her highly. 

~ Cory I.

Being new to Colorado, we relied heavily on Ted’s local knowledge to help us find the right home to buy.  His patience was admirable as we searched many neighborhoods throughout the Roaring Fork Valley.  From beginning to end in the buying process, he was our advocate.  We recommend him to anyone moving to the area.

~ Ray and Mirta B.

We have known Ted Borchelt for the last ten years. During that time, Ted has shown us that he is not only the consummate professional, but someone with the highest integrity, attention to details, who follows up on every issue. He is very knowledgeable in the Real Estate field, especially as it pertains to the Roaring Fork valley. We recently closed a listing with Ted and as always it was a real pleasure dealing with him from beginning to closing.

~ Kevin and Melissa G.

Ted made the whole process of buying our home so easy and enjoyable.  He always had our best interest in mind, was always available to answer any question or concern, and made certain that we were on schedule with every step of the process.  We managed to get our dream home due to Ted’s expertise.   We would highly recommend Ted to anyone who is looking to buy or sell a home in this valley.

~ Diane H.

Jana Dillard is a terrific Realtor! My husband and I have had the pleasure of knowing Jana and then working with her as our Realtor to sell our home.
Jana knows the market extremely well and is very thorough in her research. She is always willing to go above and beyond. She is in constant communication via emails, texts and real estate market alerts up to the minute.
I would highly recommend Jana Dillard to be your realtor for buying or selling!

~ Bill H.

Jana did a terrific job; from the minute we met her until the hour of closing.  Smart, always accessible, pushed when needed, but never pushy.  A jewel to work with!

~ Amanda L.

Jana is a consummate professional with a genuine understanding of and appreciation for her role as the conduit with which her clients can fulfill their search for place and home. Jana appreciates that the value of real estate goes beyond numbers and acreage; that it is a life piece that is as individual as the client. Jana has all of the knowledgeable and emotional tools to work with her clients and to ensure that—whether a short or long term process—they feel supported, understood, and valued in their quest for place.

~Mikki and Michael J.

We have to say that it was wonderful to have you as our realtor for both buying and selling.  Everything fell into place quite nicely and we had keys in hand on the 30th of December. Great timing!  If ever we would need a realtor in the Roaring Fork Valley we would most certainly call you!  Thank you so much for all you did for us as well as your friendship.

~ Klara & Mark S.

Working with Jana Dillard was a pleasure. She is very responsive, fast, knowledgeable, experienced and an extremely nice human being.

~ Anne-Marie B.

Jana was such a pleasure to work with when I sold my Basalt townhome. Selling property from out-of-state is stressful, unless you have a realtor who cares for your property and all the minute details, as if she’s selling her own home. That’s what Jana did for me! Now, even many years later, she still stays in contact, long after the deal is done.

~ Duane & Lisa R.

Jana helped us navigate our rather unconventional, remote cabin, property needs. From tracking down the perfect place high above Marble, to driving me through mud and snow conditions where failure was not an option, she was an absolute delight to work with. She took care of our every need and enabled us to secure the get-away property of our dreams. She worked incredibly hard on our behalf, and the overall experience was fantastic.\

~ Steve & Katie B.

Jana took on the sale of our home with diligence and enthusiasm. We have known Jana for several years and knew that she was capable and worthy of our trust. Jana was always reachable, always willing to listen to our thoughts, and fully committed to the successful sale of our home. She exceeded our expectations and we would unconditionally use her again, and recommend her to others.

~ Dave & Elly W.

We had a wonderful experience working with Jana. She was eager and willing to show us what was on the market in our price range, as well as showing us the general area. She helped us with our offer price, and encouraged us to proceed without pressuring us. The best was when we found some things that needed repair during the walk through, she asked the Seller if she would make the minor repairs, and when she refused, she negotiated with her that she have the carpet cleaned instead. The Seller quickly agreed relieved that she would have to hire repair people. The carpet was cleaned beautifully, and we think that helped us bring in a long term tenant. We never would have thought to negotiate carpet cleaning and will always be grateful to her for her quick thinking.

~ Rob & Diane H.

Jana Dillard is a true joy to work with. Very professional and very detailed. The marketing material she created was top-notch. She was highly knowledgeable of the features of our home and our neighborhood. Whenever showings were scheduled, she was courteous to call ahead and always on time. Should we need to buy and/or sell another home, we look forward to working with her again in the future!

~ Larry S.

You have been a true professional on the whole journey. You are very well organized and always on top of things. Many people don't realize that the agents value and needed skills go way beyond just showing houses. Most can do that- few handle it end to end as well as you.

~ Bobbi & Ken H.

Jana represented us in a professional and businesslike manner which resulted in the purchase of a wonderful home at a very attractive price.
