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.

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.

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…

Harlan is an excellent realtor. He took the time to really listen and understand our needs. He spent a lot of time assisting us throughout the process, always with a positive attitude and quick to respond. We love the property we just closed on. We highly recommend Harlan!

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

Harlan was so patient with us in looking for a home. He was very thorough, did not pressure us at all. Every time I called him, he responded quickly. We live about 3 hours from Crested Butte. My husband and I are such busy people. When we wanted to see a place in Crested Butte, he went out of his way to meet us. He is an honest guy. He won’t let you down. He is also a wonderful guy. Dawn was great too. I would highly recommend them.
Gerty · Colorado Springs · Nov 2020

Harlan worked with us for a couple of years as we waited for the right opportunity in the area. He was incredibly thoughtful and responsive for all that time, and kept providing needed assistance and advice about the nuances of life in CB even after we closed! We will definitely recommend him to others in the future!
Juli · Texas · Oct 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

We’ve been looking for a place in Crested Butte for a few years and Harlan has been our guy! He is patient- I never felt pressured to make a decision. He is thorough- he took his time in meeting with us and knew exactly what we wanted. He pays attention to details- while he kept us up to date on new listings, he also gave us insight (as a resident of CB) into things we wouldn’t necessarily know (I’m talking about everything from water sources to hiking trails). Harlan was our expert, he was our advocate! If you’re looking for real estate in the Crested Butte area—do yourself a favor and call Harlan Hudson!!
Claire · Texas · Jun 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

Harlan is a trusted person who is patient and kind. He is a GOOD man. He goes out of his way to do whatever he can for you. We have been so grateful to have been able to work with him all the way from Alaska on two purchases. Thank you Harlan. Mike, Paris & Eleanor.
Paris · Alaska · May 2020

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

Harlan was wonderful to work within our home search. He listened to us and showed us just what we wanted. Harlan made the out of town closing a breeze. We were constantly informed and updated on the process. Harlan has been there to answer any questions or concerns we had. He is very knowledgeable in the area. I wouldn’t hesitate to use Harlan Hudson again- a great experience!
– Ann · Texas · Nov 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.
