Initially I was convinced that it would be advantageous and not that difficult to sell my house without the help of a Realtor. After several months of publicizing the sale of my home using online platforms like Zillow, FSBO.com, and others, I soon realized that it was going to take more than posts on a website to attract buyers. I needed someone who was familiar with the market, had an active network and the resources to get the word out. In working Sara, my reach to prospective buyers multiplied almost immediately. She was quick to offer her professional skills, extensive experience, and market knowledge. She was prompt in taking the necessary steps to start the process. Sara was genuine, personable and trustworthy; qualities that reinforced my decision to work with her. I appreciated Sara’s positive energy and personality during those challenging final moments when we were completing the sale of the property. I would highly recommend Sara and have numerous times to date. Sara is reliable, and dedicated to her clients. She has a wonderful tenacity about her that contributes to getting the job done.

We have bought and sold 7 properties in the past 16 years and have never had a more hard-working, ethical and knowledgeable realtor. Sara hiked miles of ranch land with us while we chose our dream ranch in gorgeous SW Colorado. Then she handled all the contracts and paper work with integrity and professionalism. Sara made the long-distance purchase of our Colorado dream retirement ranch effortless because she is super organized, always available and pays close attention to every detail. She’s a rare combo in the realty world! Thanks again, Sara! The Meeks
Sara Staber is a very knowledgeable and competent Realtor. Also a very pleasant person, easy to work with. She was dedicated and tireless in presenting my property for the best sale. She worked with me through the whole process and sale contract, not like other realtors who walk through a house and some of the property, then tell you they will put it on the internet but do nothing beyond that. I highly recommend her. Barbara E.
Sara answered her phone on a Saturday, listened to us, and met us within a few hours with a list of properties to show us. She is a local who understands the details, she always gave her honest opinion and never tried to sell us, but did everything possible to help us find our vision property. She walked, hiked and met with us several times and always was friendly and accommodating. Her knowledge of the area and land values were invaluable to us, her negotiation skills were excellent. I would recommend Sara to anyone who is considering property in Durango. We could not have had a better experience. Randy and Jackie R.
We were introduced to Sara through a mutual friend who had used her services in the past. Being from out of state with busy schedules, Sara asked us a series of personal questions with respect to our preferences. Then she came back with a short list of properties that fit our needs. We were successful in finding and purchasing a property we truly love. Alan M.
Sara and I clicked early on, and she was great for helping me price my home at a level I was happy with. She helped me through what can be a stressful process, and made things run smoothly. I recommend Sara for all real estate dealings in this area. Peggy Y.
Sara handled the sale of several ranch properties for our family. For ranch land in Southwestern Colorado, water rights are very important. Sara was very knowledgeable of the myriad of water related issues related to the land we were selling, which really helped us best decide how to represent the property. Along with good marketing and representation, we were able to get full asking price offers, even in the challenging market of the past few years. She managed the complicated contracts and associated issues with the property pleasantly and efficiently. Matt B
We have worked with Sara repeatedly as buyers and as sellers in 2011, 2013, and 2014. She is professional, knowledgeable, thorough, and friendly. If you’re looking at buying or selling you’d do well to consider working with Sara.
Sara had been highly recommended to us by friends who had relocated to Durango, and we got it touch with her when we came. She has helped us with all our real estate needs and questions – – and more! She knows the area extremely well, and she’s terrific.
What a great experience it was to work with Sara Staber. Although in the end I did not purchase, she knew the inventory thoroughly, listened to my needs, got back to me quickly, and was very easy to speak to. Wish I had been able to complete the purchase. I will absolutely use Sara again. Janet K.
