Steven is everything you’d want and expect from a real estate agent, and then some. Before my husband and I worked with Steven, we didn’t understand the value that real estate agents added. We’ve worked with a few agents previously but with the easy access to information on the internet, they never provided us with anything that we didn't know. Steven provided my husband and I with intangible value-value that I believe can only be derived from someone that is as uniquely talented and experienced as Steven. It’s difficult to express the experience and gratitude we had with Steven in an online review. Not only did he find us a home that we absolutely love – but he made the process fun and relaxing. To name a few examples: 1) He found a home for us that wasn’t on our radar and provides more joy than we could have dreamed of – he didn’t just choose our home based on a bedroom/budget combination– but because of the street it’s on, the HOA membership, the potential rental revenue, the neighbors in the building, the proximity to things we enjoy 2) During the contract negotiation (which tends to be the most daunting), Steven was like a guardian angel. We always felt empowered, knowledgeable, comfortable, and confident 3) He located an amazing lender for us 4) He’s introduced us to the town, the people, the culture 5) He became family. Let’s just say this – If you’re ready to make a purchase in Aspen, I promise no one will set you up better for success than Steven and his team.
Working with Steven and his team (Karla and Tatiana) has been an incredibly positive experience. When selecting a realtor so many factors come in to play, that in retrospect, we now know can make or break a sale and add or detract from the overall experience. Steven's reputation, knowledge of the market and skill played a huge role in the sale of our house and in getting things done quickly. Karla and Tatiana were available literally 24/7 during this process. They are incredibly talented, helpful, and knowledgeable and kept us on track. Any question was answered immediately and any concerns were allayed. What could have been a stressful, emotional experience, has been, instead, extremely positive. Their professionalism, dedication and customer service are second to none. There is absolutely no better team in the valley.
What I loved about working with Steven was not only his incredible network of "A" list clients but his intuitive sense of understanding the important aspects of selling my property. After he sold the spec home that I had built next door I knew he was the right person who could understand the nuances of a property designed and built in 1959 by Fritz Benedict (a Frank Lloyd Wright disciple and the foremost Aspen Architect of all time) for Bill Dunaway, one of Aspen's most legendary figures and longtime owner, editor and publisher of the Aspen Times. The first time he visited the property he "got it", an unusual mid-century modern iconic home, a one of a kind in Aspen. Steven had my house under contract in less than 30 days, in this difficult market. I would recommend Steven!
Listing my property with Steven was the best thing I ever did! His unmatched knowledge of the local market combined with his real estate expertise and networking skills made the entire process of listing and selling my home a breeze. He and his highly talented and enthusiastic team were available every step of the way to help me with any questions and concerns. I was extremely impressed with their marketing platform, professionalism and global reach. l am also tremendously grateful and appreciative for their assistance and connections in helping me facilitate a very quick closing during such a busy time of year. It was a genuine pleasure and wonderful experience to work with Steven. He goes above and beyond to get the deal done.
Steven Shane and company are a fantastic Real estate group. He took the time to listen to what my wife and I wanted in an Aspen property. They organized properties for us see and stayed on point for what we wanted in a ski home. Never did they try to convince us on something that did not match our needs. Steven knows the market very well and gave us great guidance in purchasing our new home. His partner Karla Spence was very professional and kept us up to date on all aspect of the deal. Steven and company are fantastic professionals and great people.
Steven Shane helped us identify the best opportunities in Aspen. He showed us multiple homes and assisted us in submitting several offers. When we ultimately decided on the home that we purchased, Steven handled an extremely difficult negotiation. After acceptance, Steven and Karla Beth Spence were attentive to all of the details. They were on hand for all inspections and even the final walk through. Steven Shane and Karla Beth Spence are terrific! Thank you for making our purchase experience a good one.

Steven Shane is a fierce and commendable broker. He was patient and stealth in his negotiating, which ultimately made it a buy. He has a keen ability to spot a good find through his knowledge of the local market. Not only did he work on this contract as if it were his own buy, he was available 24/7 to make sure that nothing astray. He is a marketing and sales professional that you want on your side. Being born in Aspen, I could not be happier to have Steven be my broker for my first house.
My husband and I just closed on a condo in downtown Aspen and we couldn't be more pleased with the buying process and the outcome. Steven was incredibly knowledgeable about the local market, and very quick and thorough in providing us detailed comps for all sorts of different scenarios. He helped us get a great deal on our unit and definitely had our best interests in mind. Both Steven and Karla Beth were very professional and great to work with. We couldn't be more pleased!
I have done several real estate transactions over the years and have never met a more knowledgeable, customer focused and informed broker. Steven is in class of his own, and I would highly recommend him to either a buyer or seller. His ability to evaluate and understand the value of a property for both the buyer and seller and present a value proposition for both parties sets him apart from the myriad brokers to choose from in the Roaring Fork Valley.
I couldn't have made the assignment more difficult. I asked Steve to find me a one of a kind house within walking distance to the gondola and the seller had to take my duplex as part of the deal. It took Steven all of fifteen minutes to have me in escrow. The property wasn't even listed. He just has such an incomparable familiarity with the town, the people and the properties that I really believe only he could have pulled this off.
Steven Shane and his 2 right-hand people (Karla Beth and Tatiana) are terrific. I was buying a house living across the country, and they made the process so effortless. Steven has excellent negotiation skills and I got a great deal on my home. Every step of the way Steven, Karla Beth and Tatiana were there at a moment’s notice. Steven and his team are professionally competent and fun to work with. 5 Stars!
Having worked with many brokers over the last 30 years, both commercial and residential. I have never had such a positive experience. We were driving through the west end and I commented about a house we were driving by. Steven pulled the car over, jumped out and knocked on the door.... 30 days later we owned the unlisted gem we now call home in Aspen.
Steven and the whole team at Compass are immensely helpful. Aspen is full of micro neighborhoods and Steven has insights that only a local with 20 + years in the community could have. Steven not only showed us properties that fit our needs, he suggested a team of contractors, architects and other professionals. I highly recommend Steven and Compass.
Steven could not have done more to sell our home! He thinks outside the box, huge marketing, and cares about the results. His knowledge of the real estate market is complete and the diligence and enthusiasm to get the job done was amazing. Staying on top of potentials buyers, not letting them slip through the cracks. We are very grateful!
I have owned and listed a lot of real estate in Colorado and particularly in Aspen. I've never been more impressed with a realtor. Steve went well beyond not only what one would expect but frankly, beyond what I would have ever imagined. He's creative, honest and generous at every step of the process. I can't recommend him highly enough.
Steven and his team are incredible!!! The communication was fantastic. So often you feel like you are bothering your broker if you just ask for an update...not with the A-Team. They always made the time to bring me up to speed on every detail. Thank you Steven, Karla, and Tatiana. Excellent work.
Steven and his team were a pleasure to work with as we looked at homes, negotiated a purchase and ultimately closed on a home. They were very responsive, exceptionally knowledgeable and added significant value during the home buying process. I would highly recommend Steven, Tatiana and Karla.
Steven and his associate were very communicative throughout the entire selling process. Steven gave us a price and time frame he thought he could achieve and met those goals. I would highly recommend him to anyone trying to buy or sell a home in the Aspen area.
Steven and his associate, Karla Beth Spence were tenacious and respectful of my needs and emotions in this endeavor. They spent a lot of time and money on marketing. The negotiations with the buyer were very professional. I would highly recommend this firm.
We cannot speak more highly of any broker that we have dealt with than Steven Shane. He was not only extremely professional but also very thorough and thoughtful. We highly recommend him and Karla Beth Spence.
Working with Steven and his team has been the best decision we made. His expertise made it possible for us to sell our home in record times for the area. Loved working with Steven, Sam, Karla. Thank you guys!
We had a wonderful experience with the Compass group from start to finish. All of Steven's associates were amazing and there was always someone familiar with our project to handle things.
