Half guest ranch, half working ranch, the community was thoughtfully designed as a conservation development committed to preserving and enhancing the natural landscape and agricultural heritage.

My wife and I both work in the real estate world (commercial) and have been fortunate to buy a number of properties in a couple of states. In all of that time we have never worked with a more professional, better informed, more honest, or nicer person than Dean. The house he represented us in purchasing was not an easy deal to make, and although his commission hung in the balance, he never made one suggestions that was not 100% in our best interest. Through thick and thin of the deal, and since, he has always been helpful and positive in every way. As you can tell, we recommend in the highest possible way to get to know Dean if you get the chance. And, if you get to work with him, you will be doubly rewarded. ~Lee P will be the one I come to, and I will recommend you to EVERYONE I talk to who is interested in real estate. Thanks again for keeping me in the loop- you've done a great job!! ~Lorri B.

Great. Thanks for your help on this Dean.  You’re good to work with. ~Cam B. Steamboat Sotheby’s International Realty

I am thrilled with the transaction and know that your work and expertise made it happen. Thank you!!! ~A.M.

Dean has an easy, laid back style but will surprise you with how sharp his negotiation skills are! He's a local family guy who knows everything there is to know about Steamboat. ~Karen M.

In any town you have a lot of choices when it comes to realtors. Dean was referred to me by a friend of mine who also had a great buying experience with Dean. I honestly don't prefer most realtors approach to selling. Dean was everything opposite of most realtors in that he listened to exactly what I was looking for, was patient, and helped us through the inspection and buying process. Dean was VERY knowledgeable about the area and the best deals in town! Most town homes/condos in Steamboat are located amongst 100s of other short-term rentals. Our town home is located in a very upscale area of town, very quiet, and lot's of great, long-term neighbors! If you want to work with a realtor who has your best interest in mind and isn't just looking for his/her next paycheck, I'd HIGHLY recommend working with Dean! Thanks Dean!! We love our new home!!! ~Barry B.

Our home buying experience with Dean was pleasant, easy, and professional. Truly, it was the best experience we have ever had with a real estate agent or broker. He has a strong knowledge of the Steamboat Springs community, as well as background as a builder so he knows exactly what to look for and really nailed our listings. We were shown properties that matched our needs and found something that was perfect for us. Dean was a great advocate for us during the process and completely followed through on all expectations. And he was still there for us long after the sale was complete, in case we would have needed him. I would highly recommend his services to anyone looking to buy a property in the area! ~Holley G.

In 1996 Dean Laird helped my wife and I find acreage in the Columbia River Gorge. At the time we were living on the Oregon coast several hours away from the Gorge. Dean scouted several properties for us and we then drove up to take a look at what he had found. After looking at a few properties he drove us to a magnificent piece of land which exceeded our expectations and eventually became our home. During the entire process of purchasing our land, Dean was methodical, professional and quite knowledgeable in his handling of contracts. My wife and I were very impressed with his management of our purchase and his willingness to help us acquire the type of property we were seeking. I highly recommend Dean Laird and would most certainly request his services in the event we should ever be in the market for another property. In my estimation he is by far the finest, most caring and professional realtor I have ever had the pleasure of working with! ~David N.
