Dawn was extremely helpful and knowledgeable with the sale of our property. I have and will continue to recommend her as the most trusted realtor I’ve ever had the privilege of working with.

– Scott · Crested Butte · March 2023

I absolutely love Dawn! She helped me purchase my dream lot in January of 2023 and she was a tremendous resource to me. I am from out of state so she helped me navigate buying land in Colorado, understand the local scene and walked me through the process from start to finish. She was super flexible and met me on the dates I could travel to Crested Butte. She dedicated a whole afternoon to touring the land with me and even lent me snowshoes so we could walk the lot together. I would absolutely work with Dawn again and recommend her to anyone else looking to buy or sell in the area!

– Steven · Crested Butte · January 2023

Dawn helped us purchase a condo in Mt. Crested Butte. Her insight and expertise were extremely valuable during the process, and she went above and beyond, working with the HOA, communicating with the lender, and of course the seller’s agent, to facilitate a smooth buying experience. I would strongly recommend Dawn as a local real estate partner!

– Alex · Crested Butte · August 2022

Dawn helped us through an out of state purchase, which was incredibly helpful since she both knew the processes that we didn’t inside and out, as well as had so many contacts in the area to make our purchase much smoother than we anticipated. Everything went perfectly without a hitch, and we can 100% attribute that to Dawn and her team. Everyone we spoke with out of her office were just the best.

– Jeff · Gunnison · August 2022

We worked with Dawn & team in early 2022 to purchase a condo in Mt. Crested Butte. We were very impressed with how easy and seamless the entire experience was. Additionally, her intimate knowledge of the area and the related considerations that are unique to buying near a ski resort meant we were well prepared for what to expect from start to finish – there were no surprises! We very much enjoyed working with Dawn and would definitely recommend the Howe Group!

– Jamie · Crested Butte · April 2022

We worked with Dawn & team in early 2022 to purchase a condo in Mt. Crested Butte. We were very impressed with how easy and seamless the entire experience was. Additionally, We were fortunate to have Dawn represent us in our new home purchase. She quickly understood our tastes and showed us several homes that matched our tastes and needs. She and her team did a great job of guiding us through the closing process. She was always available to answer our questions. She has also been helpful in directing us to local needed services. We highly recommend Dawn Howe and the Howe Group – Keller Williams Colorado West Realty.

– Jeanne · Crested Butte · March 2022

We worked with Dawn & team in early 2022 to purchase a condo in Mt. Crested Butte. We were very impressed with how easy and seamless the entire experience was. Additionally, Dawn Howe assisted us in our purchase of investment real estate. We found Dawn to be extremely responsive and professional in her approach. It was a totally seamless process. We could not recommend her more strongly and we would most definitely use her services again for purchasing real estate.

– Gideon · Crested Butte · December 2021

This is our 2nd time working with Dawn and her team, we’ve worked with them on both the Buyer and Seller side. They take care of all of the details and make everything easy for the client. Dawn is very responsive and is great about keeping you informed. We would definitely work with her again!

– Rachel · Indiana · September 2021

Every time I had a question, concern, favor, or whatever, Dawn was quick and active to reply; and without hesitation. She was amazing and pleasant the entire time and I’m beyond grateful for all her and her team has done to make this sale complete.

– Stevie · Crested Butte · July 2021

I’ve sold two properties in the CB area at different times with Dawn, and she has my strongest endorsement. Since I’m no longer living in Colorado, her deep expertise about the local market and unfailing responsiveness were invaluable. Her marketing of the properties was outstanding, and throughout the bidding and closing stages her clear communication and consultation about those processes gave me confidence that I was in great hands. Finally, Dawn seems to know everyone in the valley, which just makes everything go more smoothly.  

– Jason · Washington D.C. · June 2021

I am so very happy that I ended up choosing Dawn Howe as my realtor when decided to sell my Crested Butte home during this absolutely crazy 2021 market. There were so many real estate agents to choose from, and many of them were quite aggressive in trying to convince me to list with them. I kept hearing so many positive things about Dawn, not just around town and among my local acquaintances, but also in my particular complex where she had very recently represented both buyers and sellers.

When I met with her, I learned she and her family have been living in Crested Butte for 25+ years. No wonder she was so knowledgeable and possessed such valuable insight into Crested Butte real estate market!

Once I signed up with Dawn, she carefully planned a strategy for the sale of my place. As it turned out, she ended up being spot-on regarding when to put my place on the market, what a realistic asking price would be (considering the unprecedented current market conditions), and what changes/improvements I needed to make so it would show well. She also offered me countless other tidbits that helped me during the entire process. It was listed for only 2 ½ days, had multiple showings and I ended up choosing from several very strong offers.

As I got to know Dawn, I found her to be, not just an extremely professional and savvy real estate agent, but also a good, kind and ethical person. I happen to be a very detailed oriented person who asks a lot of questions. Dawn was extremely patient with me during the entire process and always responded quickly to all my questions and concerns.

I would not hesitate to recommend Dawn to anyone who is considering entering the Crested Butte real estate market. I have provided my contact information in the event someone would like to further discuss my wonderful experience with Dawn Howe and her team.

– Michael · Denver · June 2021

Dawn just helped us buy a condo in Mt Crested Butte and she was great to work with! First, she did a great job negotiating with the seller to get us a really good price quickly and easily. Then like many (or most) real estate transactions there were some unexpected bumps along the way, and Dawn did an excellent job of helping us navigate through them to close on time. I highly recommend Dawn and we will definitely use her again if we ever have a need for a realtor in the CB area again.

– John · Dallas · March 2021

Dawn was my realtor to sell my place in the Pitchfork neighborhood of Mt CB and I could not be happier. She was patient with me, walked me thru everything, and was truly professional. I would not hesitate to use Dawn again for any Crested Butte real estate transactions I might have in the future. Thanks, Dawn and Team…

– David · Denver · Jan 2021

Dawn Howe Group was a joy to work with on the purchase of our Crested Butte mountain home. They were always available and ready to answer any questions and help get us to the closing table. Trying to close from Texas was a challenge and they made it a breeze. They are true professionals and I highly recommend the Team!

 Denise · Texas · Nov 2020

Dawn Howe did an amazing job! Dawn recently sold our house and did not stop working on our sale till it was closed. We live in another state so having an agent that cared about our property and we could trust was very important. I appreciate all her hard work and highly recommend Dawn Howe!

– Jody · Texas · Oct 2020

Working with Dawn and her staff was a wonderful experience. They are kind and patient. Also very knowledgeable. They responded immediately when I had any questions and treated me with respect. Sometimes agents can be kind of “know-it-all” and disregard clients’ concerns, but they do not engage that way and worked very hard to make sure we got the best price we could from our sale. I highly recommend Dawn Howe Group!

 Karen · Colorado Springs · Jun 2019

Dawn is easy to work with and very professional. Since I live in another state, she took over the complete selling of my property and even hired someone to fix the lock when it wasn’t working. She would call me with updates and take time to discuss options to help with the sale. It was a pleasure to work with Dawn.

 Laurie · South Dakota · Mar 2019

Dawn is not your typical real estate agent. She exhibited a rare and wonderful amount of understanding, patience, knowledge, honesty, and skill. She was never pushy or showed us things that were out of our budget. She hung right with us until we found what we wanted and then she and her staff made the purchase process very easy. We think she’s pretty great.

– Tom and Judy · California · Feb 2019

Dawn Howe listed and sold my condo in The Plaza. She took care of more details than any other realtor I have worked with in the past and went above and beyond. She promptly returned phone calls and texts. I look forward to working with Dawn again in the future.

– Barbara · Alabama · Jan 2019

Dawn has been a fantastic help! She worked with us for a long time to find the PERFECT home and showed patience, knowledge, and guidance while we looked to buy. Once we were also ready to sell she was invaluable and helped in every way possible. We would highly recommend Dawn to anyone looking for a great broker.

– Marcella · Florida · Sep 2018

Dawn did a great job as our broker. She found us a lovely place in CB South and was a pleasure to work with throughout the purchase process. Dawn is very knowledgeable about the area and provided valuable guidance. I would highly recommend her!!

 Kim · Boulder · Aug 2018

Dawn was an incredible real estate agent. She made buying our first home a breeze and helped us feel comfortable throughout the whole process. Dawn was readily available and ensured that we met every deadline with ease.

– Anne · Crested Butte · July 2018

The sale of our condo was certainly one of our least stressful and taxing transactions; I think we found a very good match in Dawn with regards to working style and temperament.

We’re delighted to have sold the condo, but CB will continue to be one of our favorite destinations—we have already scheduled two trips back to CB for skiing after the first of the year! Thanks again

– Mark · California · Sept 2017

We were casually looking for a place in Mt. Crested Butte as a ski getaway and Dawn was the realtor on a property we were interested in, so we contacted her for a showing. Throughout the entire process, she was incredibly professional, responsive, and easy to work with. It’s great to have someone like Dawn who knows the market so well but also knows the community. She did an exceptional job and we highly recommend her!

– Stephanie & Torrey · Denver · Jan 2017

A friend referred Dawn to us, and what a great referral it was! We were just “kicking tires” but then unexpectedly jumped in with both feet! We couldn’t be happier with Dawn and everything she did for us. She’s extremely knowledgeable about the market and was a wonderful advocate for us. Dawn kept us informed and was in constant communication with us. In addition to all of this, she was just a wonderful person to be with. We had a great time looking at the properties! Our family is looking forward to making a lot of great memories in CB!

– Brett And Ginger · Texas · Aug 2016

A chance meeting at a local park with our children more than 10 years ago leads to an eventual purchase and for that we have to thank and admire Dawn’s patience and assistance for staying in touch for all those years! A wonderful person who was a great sounding board and who provided us with valuable insight in finally making the decision when the time was right to buy a home in what we consider the best place to be in all of Colorado! I would recommend her to anyone looking for their perfect spot in Crested Butte!!

– Jeff · Denver · Apr 2016

Dawn is truly outstanding! It was such a pleasure to be with a pro who knows the market extremely well and works diligently for you. She took time to get to know us and was so patient as we developed the ideal criteria. I did not have high hopes of finding a CB investment property within my price range, but within four months we had found it and closed. Dawn still keeps in touch and checks in to make sure all is going well.

– Carol · Salida · Nov 2015

Dawn has completed two transactions for us in the Gunnison and Crested Butte area. One was an unusual property that required creativity. Dawn knows the market well, is a hard worker, and exhibits professionalism at all levels. We would not hesitate to ask her to represent us again whether we are buying or selling property in the Gunnison-Crested Butte area.

– Mike and Gracy · Texas · Nov 2015

Dawn Howe is an outstanding realtor who absolutely went above and beyond and completely dedicated her services for a year 1/2, helping us find and purchase our perfect home in Crested Butte. Dawn was extremely helpful in the final process of purchase and last-minute changes during the loss of our mother. Very hectic and trying time and Dawn was there every step of the way. Beautiful person and wonderful family. Dawn and her family are awesome people and we are so blessed to know them. Thanks, Dawn so much!

– The Collins Family · Texas · Aug 2013

Thanks to Dawn’s patience and persistence in helping us find the perfect place we can now call ourselves locals. Two years of relentlessly helping us find exactly what we needed got us the view and the home of our dreams. Only problem is that we can not be there 24/7/365 to enjoy the valley and the community. The big extra??? We got Dawn and her family as lifelong friends and they are the first people we call when we come to town. You can’t go wrong with Dawn. She’s the best.
