What my clients say about me:

"Angela helped us buy our new home an sell our prior home and we couldn't be happier working with her. She is very knowledgeable, insightful and experienced with the real estate market. I'm very impressed with her interest in the psychology of selling and buying property in various market conditions. More than any of this, she is dependable, diligent, patient, and amazingly nice. We really look forward to working with her again in the future."

J. & B. Harte | Steamboat Springs, CO

"In a town with so many options, choosing an agent is no small decision. We couldn't be more grateful to work with Angela! She's knowledgeable, works her tail off, and always has our best interest at heart. If you're looking for so much more than a salesperson, you're already at the right spot.

C. Kruse | Steamboat Springs, CO

"Positive, Professionalism, Responsiveness

Our experiences with Angela have been exceptional. We were looking to capitalize on the market growth but also downsize and stay in the Steamboat area.

Angela MADE IT HAPPEN for us which is no small miracle!

We had our home listed and under contract quickly. Angela was diligent in looking for options for our "replacement" property. She came up with suggestions, that I, even after 30 years of living in Steamboat, had not thought of. She found the perfect p lace for us and acted quickly to get us in the property under contract. Her relationships in the with other Brokers, but also Title companies and Banking representatives were a key piece to smooth and successful transactions on both our sale and purchase.

She is well respected in the Real Estate Field, but also in the Steamboat Community. I cannot emphasize enough how valuable it is to have a person of good ethics & morals that you can put your trust in when you are making LIFE decisions. We cannot put into words how thankful we are for everything she did for us every step of the way."

“If you are looking for a Real Estate agent who gets it done, Angela Ashby would be my recommendation. Angela is knowledgeable of her market. Her experience allows her to ask all the right questions. Angela is nice person who worked very hard to make sure we were happy with our purchase.

My family dreamed of owning a house in Steamboat Springs for 15 years. We decided to make it happen in 2020 and, of course, there were many challenges to overcome in the year of Covid 19. The biggest challenge we faced was doing this remotely from across the country. I had my doubts that it could be done. Angela made it happen. She spent hours taking us through video tours of homes and explaining the pros and cons of each. Once we figured out what we were looking for, Angela's guidance through the offer, inspection and closing were invaluable. We did not actually step into the house until the day we arrived to move in, but thanks to all of Angela's hard work we found our dream home and could not be happier.

"I met Angela on the recommendation of my daughter, who had just bought a house in Steamboat. That transaction was complicated, but Angela guided and patiently realized the buy. My husband and I had been talking about selling our home in Steamboat for several years. I decided to call Angela Ashby. I met Angela August 26, 2020 and she was all that my daughter had talked about! The initial visit was very relaxing and convivial, sharing Steamboat adventures, and most importantly my goals for selling the duplex home. I wanted to be able to have an offer by Halloween and be able to close sometime in late November or December for sure!

I needed some lead time to make repairs and, to sell furniture, so I delayed the listing date. Upon further consulting with Angela, we decided to list the house earlier than later. The following weekend, after 4 days of being on the market, an offer was accepted! Angela went to work! Angela coordinated thoroughly with me, explained details, especially legal documents, and kept in daily communication until the sell was on a very smooth path. Angela was always available to answer questions and dispelled doubts. She made me feel very confident that she and her staff would be 100% accurate with my home's Routt county searches, the buyer’s financial stability, and the closing schedule and documents.

The whole selling transaction was very "sweet"!  Angela is the ultimate professional, devoted to the Steamboat community, reflects sincerity and has goal driven aspirations toward her clients! Thanks Angela!

J. McGinnis | Steamboat Springs, CO

"We first met Angela in the Fall of 2019 upon the recommendation of an excellent real estate agent we had worked with in Denver. We were not disappointed. We were hoping to find a place that would accommodate our family (3 grown children and 3 young grandchildren), as well as offer potential for some rental income. Prior to our visit, she asked us a series of questions about what we were interested in. We looked at five properties initially, all lovely, and very different. Although we didn’t settle on a place during that trip, Angela kept in constant contact with us, and sent properties that had just come onto the market and/or had upcoming open houses. In late December she found the PERFECT place for us – a beautiful townhome in a well-kept complex, nestled in a beautiful forested area that was still within very close proximity to the ski area. Through her very diligent persistence, we were able to close the deal. While under contract, Angela and her affiliated staff were very helpful and always available for questions related to finding a local mortgage company and walking us through the closing process. As Angela had so accurately noted “purchasing a mountain vacation property was a little different from buying a home in Denver”. She set up interviews with prospective property managers, and was always available for questions related to the HOA, potential rental income, home inspection and contractor services, consignment store locations, and just finding our way around the town and ski area. Her input was invaluable as we were somewhat new to what the community had to offer. Even after closing she made herself available for questions related to moving in and making our new property rent-friendly. In short, she was kind, patient, insightful, knowledgeable and indispensable throughout the search and purchase of our beautiful Steamboat property."

G. Takimoto & J. Stephens | Denver, CO

"I had over a year of frustrations in attempting to sell my townhome prior to meeting Angela. I had taken my townhome off the market and was very reluctant to try selling it again so soon. During that year, Angela had successfully sold another townhome, owned by a family friend, in my complex within a matter of weeks of coming on the market. She came highly recommended by that friend. After meeting Angela, I left with the impression that she not only listened to my concerns, but that she may be my best chance of trying to sell my townhome despite my previous frustrations. She actively marketed my townhome on several platforms and didn’t just rely on the MLS. Within only a few weeks, I was under contract at a good price. She was very responsive and on top of every deadline throughout the contract. I valued her professional opinion, experience, and drive to get through every step including an unexpected hiccup. She was on my side throughout the entire process. I have worked with a handful of realtors locally, but she is the first call I will make next time I buy or sell locally and she is who I will recommend to friends and family."

K. Doran | Steamboat Springs, CO

"Planning our family's move to Steamboat, Angela was recommended to us from a friend that has lived in Steamboat for more than twenty years and is familiar with many of the local realtors.  We worked with Angela for approximately eighteen months and have now completed our second purchase with her.  We purchased our primary house that we live in and also an investment property.  Purchasing two properties with Angela is a testament in and of itself to her professionalism, knowledge, real estate acumen and local connections.  We now consider Angela a friend and will continue our relationship beyond real estate."

M. & W. Zuck | Steamboat Springs, CO

My husband and I recently purchased a rental property in Steamboat and we could not have gotten the deal done without Angela! We live out of town and were unable to see the property in person before we put an offer on it. Without hesitation, Angela went over to the property to take a video for us and explained every detail of the condo to us. We were hesitant to put an offer on the property sight unseen, but Angela eased our nerves and was there to answer ALL of our questions. Angela was available for us no matter what time and was a huge advocate for us throughout the process. We are so excited to have a great place in Steamboat! Thank you Angela for everything!

B. & J. Esbin | Denver, CO

" Angela was amazing to work with and was beyond supportive.  I had so many hurdles to deal with in the selling of my townhouse last year, and with each she made the time to help me gain a perspective and manage the issues that needed to get done.  She is thorough, and on top of the process, and very knowledgeable about this industry and what is needed.  I could not have gone through this transaction without her.  Plus her investment in my getting the home I wanted at a new stage of my life was so reassuring and worked. Thanks Angela" 

C. Portigal | Steamboat Springs, CO

"Angela is an outstanding communicator and was very intuitive to the needs of our Mom and my family as we both purchased a new condo and sold her existing condo in Steamboat Springs.  

We were dealing with a professional realtor during the entire process.  When changes needed to happen, Angela made  adjustments and redirected.  Our purchase and sale both went through without a hitch and we were provided with references for professionals in the industry to help in the transition of both sale and acquisition to make the process as easy as possible.  We rely on reviews and recommendations and this one for Angela Ashby is a five star rating all the way!"

Lindquist | Steamboat Springs, CO

“We closed on our fourth Steamboat mountain home this year and meeting Angela was the best thing to happen to us in our search.  We’ve been coming twice a year for five years and she had been showing us Steamboat on every visit. She always made time for us and sent notifications to us so we knew when things came on the market. She very quickly figured out our needs and was so patient and knowledgeable in the search. But she really shined when we found what we wanted. Being out of state, she was truly our eyes and ears for negotiations with the sellers and with the HOA.  She assisted us with all aspects of the closing process including, 1031 exchange, inspection issues in which she climbed in the crawl space herself to inspect damage. Even after closing, she is helping us with deliveries and fix-up items. We couldn’t have done it without you, Angela!”

M. & D. Daniel | Midland, TX

"My husband and I would like to recommend Angela Ashby as one of the best real estate agents in Steamboat Springs. We recently sold our home in Steamboat and downsized to a 2 bedroom, 2 bath condo at the mountain. We could never have made the move without her. Angela went above and beyond what she needed to do to help us. She was there every step of the way. She brought us boxes, packing material, and even spent one morning helping me pack pictures. Angela did everything she could to help make our move as easy as possible and kept in touch afterwards to make sure everything was going well. She really cares about the people she helps to sell and purchase their homes. Thank you so much Angela for everything you did to help us." 

P. & H. Froening | Steamboat Springs, CO

 "My wife and I have been working with Angela for over 2 years….so that we could find the perfect place in Steamboat Springs.  In that time Angela was always available for any questions or inquiry’s that we had.  She is very professional, but more importantly, very personable about how she goes about her business.  Her knowledge of the area is second to none!  Even though we live 3 ½ hours away in Franktown, Co….she made us feel like we had an advocate in Steamboat.  The best part of working with Angela, is that we found the perfect place at a great price!"

S. & P. Zahorik | Franktown, CO

“When we decided to make a move from Anchorage, Alaska to Steamboat, my good fortune was finding Angela.  Angela is not only friendly and fun to spend the day with looking at properties, she is a true master of the Steamboat market.  Angela took time to identify my family’s needs, my budget, and my desire to live close to the mountain base.   She was able to knowledgeably discuss the schools, the history of the area, the history of each property, and walk me through the HOA requirements.  Since we lived out of state, Angela had the right contacts to make local financing and closing simple and easy.  And, after we closed, she helped us identify area painters, movers, cleaners, etc.  Of all the Realtors we have worked with over the years, Angela is at the top.   When selecting a Realtor to help you find your next family home, you will be glad to have Angela at your side.”

S. Brown & K. Kristof | Anchorage, AK

"We had connected with Angela a few years at our first attempt in settling down in Steamboat. School swept us back east but we vowed to return as quickly as possible. Throughout our time east, we remained in communication with Angela, and were so elated to share our news of our our return to the 'boat to reunite with family! Angela was ready to help us find our dream home to settle down in a town we love and a place we longed to raise our children. My husband and I really appreciated Angela's approachable and laid back energy. We really felt comfortable sharing our house dreams.  Angela was more than accommodating in showing us homes around our full time work schedules in conjunction with the kids' timetable. We never felt rushed, pressured, and persuaded during the house hunt. She remained patient, communicative, informative, and quick to listen to our feedback to help us find what we were looking for. Angela understood our wants/needs and found us our dream home... in a much shorter time than we ever anticipated. We can't thank Angela enough for her diligence in helping us find our home. Her professional, positive, and easygoing personality was exactly the service we desired. Thank you so much, Angela."

C.&M. Savage | Steamboat Springs, CO

"Angela recently helped me purchase my first home. She made the entire process easy. She is great to work with and highly knowledgeable. She has a lot of patience and was always available to help answer questions and provide advice with the home buying process. She is dedicated, trustworthy and definitely cares about her clients! She made me feel comfortable and confident with my purchase. I'm so happy with my new home and it's all thanks to her! Angela truly went above and beyond my expectations! I would highly recommend her to anyone looking to buy or sell a home."

M. Lindsten | Steamboat Springs, CO

"Angela Ashby is like my cool, Steamboat Aunt. I want her to come out to Oak Creek and sit with me in my house that she helped me buy and tell me everything's going to be okay.

One time she dumped me out of my wheelchair while pushing me in her flip flops on a lawn that was too bumpy. We didn't make an offer on that house. She felt really badly about it and it took her a few days to recover. She may still be recovering, and just not telling me about it constantly anymore. Even after that she never wore close toed shoes. Angela Ashby can do more in flip flops than most of us could do in steel toed boots.

She went into a scary basement for me and took ghost photos of an old coal boiler. It was awesome, but I'm still a little mad that she didn't let me go down there with her. I wish they had been selfies, but she's too professional to take selfies on a client's cell phone.

She once called a house "an adorable can of worms".  She told me "If you go through town at 31 mph you'll make it all the way through every light". She's gives you tips that only a true insider of this community would know.

I miss talking to her every day. I wish I could always be shopping for a house so we could hang out together all the time.  Love, Ruth"

R. Armbruster | Oak Creek, CO

"Working with Angela made the sale of my second home at the Pines at Orehouse Plaza easy and effortless. She kept me informed at each step of the way we went under contract in a just a few weeks for a great price. It all worked out fantastic. For anyone looking to buy or sell in Steamboat, Angela knows the market and will be your best choice for a Realtor. Thank you Angela!"

S. Masciarelli | Reston, VA

"We first met Angela six years ago while going through an Open House.  She showed us several condos but it didn't work out for us to buy one at that time.  We went home still thinking about what or whether to buy and decided to wait.  Angela was patient and kept us on her email list to keep us up to speed about what was happening in Steamboat.  The time finally got right for us to make the move to purchase a condo in Steamboat.  Angela took our list of needs and wants and found us several options.  Again, her patience and knowledge served us well.  Our family loves our new Steamboat get-away.  It suits us perfectly.  Thank you, Angela!"

R. & C. Phillips | Madison, MS

"We recently relocated from the Denver area and Angela helped us find our dream home.   Throughout the process we found her to be patient with us in our indecision, knowledgeable of the entire process, available, responsive and thorough.  When we needed guidance, she was there to provide it in a manner which was not over- bearing.  Her negotiation and communication skills were instrumental in the purchase of our home.  Her calm nature helped us not get too emotional throughout the process.  We interviewed several agents when we decided to move to Steamboat and couldn’t have been happier with our decision. Without hesitation we recommend Angela for your real estate needs."

P. & K. Alfino | Denver, Steamboat Springs, CO

"We recently bought our first condo here in Steamboat Springs and we couldn’t speak more highly of our experience working with Angela. As first time home buyers, we often didn’t know what to expect in the process, but Angela was attentive and available to answer questions every step of the way. She is extremely knowledgeable and honest; two things that make home buying a remarkably enjoyable experience. We highly recommend working with Angela to anyone looking to buy or sell a property here in Steamboat!"

L. & J. VandenHurk | Steamboat Springs, CO

"This is my fifth real-estate transaction with Angela (3 sales and 2 purchases) over the course of the last 8 years. Angela is a true professional who has the ability to wear many hats beyond just realtor. On any given day she is flexible, fluid, patient, knowledgeable and AVAILABLE. She is an excellent communicator and has the gift of translating the nitty gritty of real-estate contracts into digestible information. She has always been willing and able to adapt to my needs and help serve as advisor, investigator and negotiator. More than anything, what sets Angela apart from her peers is her attention to detail (ever single detail). She has an unparalleled knowledge of the real-estate market and contracts that are hard for the buyer/seller to decipher. Angela is best in class and I would highly recommend her to anyone."                

A. Withey | Steamboat Springs, CO

"Angela helped us buy our first home in Steamboat and it could not have gone any smoother.  She really understood what we were looking for and picked out a variety of properties and neighborhoods for us to tour. She truly cared that we found a ‘home’ without ever pressuring or pushing us toward something that wasn’t perfect.  When we did find the property that we loved, she made sure the offer, counter-offer, inspection, and paperwork process went as trouble-free as possible. We couldn’t be happier with our new home to raise our family in, all thanks to Angela!"

J. & T. Nass | Steamboat Springs, CO

"Angela has worked with us on multiple closings over the years. Throughout our experiences with her, we have noted an unrelenting drive for both smooth and successful property closings, with our best interest at heart. She displays unparalleled knowledge of the real estate process from beginning to end. We continue to feel well cared for by Angela and that she always puts her clients needs at top priority. We love working with her, and would recommend her to anybody looking to purchase or sell real estate."

R. & K. Nelson | Steamboat Springs, CO

"When I first started coming to Steamboat Springs in 1995 I knew this was a special place.  Then the "Yampa Valley Curse" happened to me and I kept coming back year after year knowing that I would eventually call this home. Angela was the integral piece that made this happen.  I am very excited about my recent land purchase that will soon become my "Steamboat Dream Home".   Angela is very good at what she does.  She is honest, trustworthy, professional, and has great attention to detail.  From beginning to end Angela made the process seamless and effortless. Angela is a top notch realtor and I highly recommend her to anyone!"

C. Haroutunian | Steamboat Springs, CO

“Trustworthy, dedicated, honest, and knowledgeable are just a few of the many attributes Angela has a realtor.  When it came time to sell my condo in Steamboat, I knew I could trust Angela to sell quickly and keep our best interest in mind.  I was blown away with her quick response, professionalism, and market knowledge to help us move forward.  Angela was extremely helpful and honest through the sale. I had a very positive selling experience, and would recommend Angela to anyone.”

K. Lawler | Steamboat Springs, CO

“Angela helped us through the process of our first home sale. She was always available to answer our questions. Even when there were issues with the appraisal she was able to work through it and negotiate a good outcome. Our property was an entry level condo but we were treated like we were selling a ski in ski out penthouse.”

S. & J. O'Farrell | Steamboat Springs, CO

"Angela undoubtedly will help you take “Your Steamboat Home” from a dream to a reality.  She’s not only professional, but she goes above and beyond in every step of the process and makes you feel “at home” and very comfortable along the way.  Angela’s also got your back and will help you navigate the sometimes confusing world of 21st century real estate."

D. Froehlich | Steamboat Springs, CO

“Angela is like no other realtor that we’ve worked with in the past.  She listened to our wants and needs and interjected her extensive Steamboat community knowledge, which resulted in us purchasing the perfect property.  When we are ready to buy another home in Steamboat, we will only use Angela.  Period.”

C. and B. Morganti | Castlerock, CO

“Angela Ashby is a grade-A+ EcoBroker that goes the extra mile for clients. Our recent purchase was a complicated one, and time after time she proved her tenacity and focus to get the job done and done right. We always felt our best interests were her number one priority.”   

C. and A. Kennedy | Steamboat Springs, CO

“Angela represented us in a sale of our townhome in Stagecoach in 2014. The property sold at close to asking price within a couple of days and everyone thought good news and on to closure. Unfortunately that was not the way of things! The inspection revealed a significant hidden problem! That was when we saw Angela at her committed best. We had already moved back to Florida so our only eyes and ears were Angela back in Colorado. She worked directly with the HOA to determine responsibility for repairs; got a contractor to do some of the work and still kept the buyers informed and committed to the purchase. Eventually all was settled and the sale was completed. Even then she surprised us by, on her own initiative, mailing to us a pair of paintings that we had mistakenly left behind in the house. In short if you want a realtor who will not only do the basics well but who will also be your true partner in the whole sale then you could not ask for better than Angela.”

N. and L. Davies | Palm Coast, FL

“Put into the unusual situation of buying a property and then having to sell it almost immediately, I turned to Angela for help.  She handled the request with great aplomb!  The job transfer precipitating the nightmare scenario was easily turned into a dream as Angela successfully sold my property and met a crazy deadline for me to get to my new job on time and without issues. I would highly recommend her for buying, selling or handling any real estate transaction. She has a great work ethic and high integrity.”    

T. Lindsten | Steamboat Springs, CO

Intelligent, professional, committed… just a few words to describe Angela Ashby’s approach. Being out of country buyers, it was a challenge to purchase our mountain home…a challenge made easy by Angela. Her 24/7 availability, relationship building skills, and patience in dealing with international buyers, exemplifies her commitment to client satisfaction. Even post closure, Angela goes above and beyond, providing ongoing service and ensuring a smooth transition. We were incredibly fortunate to have had Angela working with us, always having our best interests at heart.

“We worked with Angela for almost a year looking for the right condominium to purchase in Steamboat.  After meeting in person while there on vacation in the summer of 2008, we corresponded regularly by email and telephone for the next 11 months looking at alternatives that Angela kept sending us. She grasped early on what we were looking for and was very patient with our inquisitive nature as we explored the pros and cons of the options being considered.  Being out of state residents and working full time complicated the process for us but Angela was always there when we needed answers.  When we visited a second time in May 2009, Angela took us to see a number of condo candidates, we made a decision and struck a deal which she helped negotiate with the developer.  We can honestly say Angela went above and beyond to assist us, so we recommend her highly.”
