~ 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.

~ 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.

~ 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.

~ 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

~ 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.

~ 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.

~ 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!

~ 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.

~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.

~ 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.
