What some of my clients have to say...
Katie is, without question, the best realtor I've ever had the pleasure of working with. She guided my wife and I through a number of transactions, all of which had very unique challenges. Working with Katie, I was always confident that she was looking out for our best interests. I recommend Katie without reservation.
Katie clearly loves her job. She is passionate, dedicated, knowledgeable, determined, loyal, professional yet personable, invested, hard working, good communicator, invested in community, trustworthy, and a "GO GETTER"! I would not consider anyone else to represent me with selling or buying.
Katie is very knowledgeable about the Durango area and surrounding communities, she listens and develops mutual understanding on her clients needs and wants. That transfers into a focus on what is on the market or is coming on the market that will meet your specifications. This is the second property we have bought with Katie. We would never use anyone else, and we highly recommend her. Also she has a great sense on humor!
Katie worked with us in the process of getting our home ready to sell, listing it, and having a contract in our hands in less than 2 months. We found her to be very professional, knowledgeable, and honest. She had our backs.

Katie not only helped us buy a home, she helped us with the sale of the two homes we already had so that we could merge our families together in the NEW place! She was amazing - I felt like we were her only clients, she was so attentive and went above and beyond with the difficulties we had both selling AND procuring our new place. We had many issues with the sale of our prior homes, and Katie was on top of it every day and made sure everything would go smoothly. She stepped in and took care of every issue that came up and made our transition so smooth, we felt totally taken care of with every detail till the bitter end. She was fabulous!
I never really said thank you for helping us with the SilverPeaks condo purchase. You did a great job getting us in first position with a very low contract price and helping us inch our way to the close. It was a very long contract period with a lot of ups and downs and for a small commission.
You once said as the price crept up that it may not be such a good deal anymore. This is what makes a good realtor to me - someone who shows that they are comfortable stepping away from a deal. Thanks for that and for all of the little things that you did along the way.
The realtor club needs more people with practical, hands-on real estate investment knowledge. More people like you. Please feel free to use me as a reference anytime.
See you around. Keep up the good work. Thanks again,
My Durango home was recently sold. It was not an easy sale. Katie Sturm, Russ Smith and Mary Jo Paxton represented me with the utmost professionalism and care. They were a fantastic team and always available. Together they provided planning, options, great advice and direction resulting in a sale.
Katie's energy, passion, motivation, confidence, and tenacity are unsurpassed. We experienced several stumbling blocks and hurdles before the successfui closing on August 1, 2011. What l most appreciate about Katie is her skill to communicate, always keeping me informed and continuaily one step ahead with problem solving ideas. Even after closing there was a glitch. I called Katie that evening, her commitment to service had not ended once the closing occurred. She called me right back and followed up, precisely as she said she would. She is reliable and exemplifies excellence.
I honestly don't know how she juggles it all and acknowledge that her family must be very supportive and understanding as well.
With sincere gratitude and appreciation,
I can't say enough positives things about Katie. She was a huge advocate for us as first time home buyers. She is so knowledgeable, reliable and kind. She always had our best interest in mind. I can't imagine having the experience with anyone else and feel blessed that she was our realtor.
I just wanted to give you my sincere appreciation for your integrity and experience in assisting my son Jesse and lovely daughter-in-law Laine on the purchase of their beautiful new home. They always appreciated your talents but greatly appreciated you greeting them with your sweet smile on the day of closing at their new home. Your wonderful act of generosity with your fee and the beautiful housewarming gifts and special gifts for Evelyn were so very much appreciated by them. I know that you have made this experience a good one for them, and that there will always be good will between you, and for that I am very grateful. You exemplified a professional, exceptional agent with charisma and a warm heart. With Warmest Regards, Gerri Bopp
Thanks to Katie Sturm, I now own the house of my dreams. Because of her dedication, hard work and integrity, and the willingness to go the extra mile on my behalf, the time during escrow was painless and anxiety-free. I recommend her to all my friends Mary Benson
Katie Sturm helped us buy our Durango house. She anticipated every facet of the transaction and met every challenge with creativity, good cheer and total professionalism She is a terrific agent and gets the job done.
Katie Sturm has both sold and bought us a house. As a realtor, she has a great insight on the real estate market here in Durango. She is truly dedicated to her clients, works to find the perfect house for her clients and makes selling a house easier with her work ethic. I would recommend Katie without any hesitation.

Katie Sturm did a great job as our realtor. She was very well prepared and knowledgeable about the local market conditions. She was always easy to reach, and returned calls promptly. We purchased a rental property, and Katie provided all the information necessary to make sure we would receive a good return on our investment. We plan to use Katie again for our future real estate needs. We strongly recommend Katie to anyone looking for a true real estate professional, who is very much in tune with the Durango area real estate market.
Katie Sturm has participated in multiple real estate transactions with me over the last 6 yrs and she has always been completely competent, thorough, knowledgeable and prompt in all dealings. Katie knows the market well and is always straightforward even if it not quite what you want to hear. I would never have any hesitation in having her list a property or look for one for me in the future. You cannot go wrong hiring her if you want extraordinary service.
