The sale of our house in Mountain Star (Avon, CO) closed yesterday, an enormous accomplishment due largely to the skill and efforts of our listing broker, Tye Stockton and his team at The Stockton Group, LIV Sotheby's. Though in a beautiful mountain setting near Vail, houses in Mountain Star are notoriously hard to sell because of the high altitudes and the long, winding road access. Usually it takes from 3-5 years. Our house went under contract in three weeks and we had more than one interested potential buyer. This successful transaction, we believe, was a consequence of Tye’s preparation, clever positioning, and his creation of a sense of urgency. For example, prior to listing, he gave us a pricing report and recommendation, had us get an Inspection Report, a Property Survey, and interior house measurements. In very short order, he arranged filming (both stills and virtual video tour) and developed a very effective website so that prospective buyers (in the area and outside) could take a complete virtual tour. In other words, he got the house ready to sell before starting the marketing. Prospects perceived that this was a house that was ready to sell. To get preliminary reactions to the house, the pricing and, hopefully, to generate some early interest, he invited two different very-qualified prospects (one a client of his, one not) to come in to view the house on a pre-listing basis; thus creating a sense of opportunity. Both were interested which confirmed Tye’s perception that the house was properly priced and ready to list. A broker open house followed. Within a few days of MLS listing, we had a number of showings; by the end of a week, we had almost a prospect a day tour the house. Other houses for sale in Mountain Star had virtually no showings over the same period. In other words, Tye created a sense among local brokers that our house was attractive to prospects, was priced right, and would sell quickly…which it did. From contract signing through closing, Tye’s team handled every detail perfectly. A few potential glitches were dealt with immediately and effectively. It could not have gone better. This was the second time we used Tye and would absolutely use him again. Anyone considering Tye for a real estate transaction is welcome to call us if you wish more detail.

The Stockton Group was a great fit for us and they were so much fun to work with. They met and exceed our expectations for a real estate team. Their marketing and sales strategies brought us a buyer before the house was even complete.  We finished construction and closed the sale....perfect timing.  It was a great partnership and we thoroughly enjoyed working with Tye and his entire team. Cudos to the whole Stockton Group.

Dear Team TSG - Thank you for your teams hard work in getting my home listed and sold at full asking price. We interviewed numerous brokers and listing companies before settling on your team. Your deserve your reputation as hard working, fair and strong negotiators. I was particularly pleased with how you were able to leverage several interested buyers into 3 offers in one day, creating some urgency. This allowed us to maximize our price and select the best buyer for a quick and clean closing. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend your team and have already shared my thoughts with several friends and other brokers in the valley.

Tye is a terrific broker. He knows the Vail market extraordinarily well. We were very impressed with the advice Tye provided. Rather than trying to get a quick sale, he really focused us on what was the right home for us (based on his market knowledge). This meant that it took more work and time by him - but ended with a great result. I would strongly recommend Tye (especially for the upper end of the Vail market).
– Gordon C.
Throughout every step of our transaction, Pat and Tom provided exceptional service. Efficient, thoughtful and thorough. We never doubted their ability to get things done. Every question answered and every task was completed with our best interests in mind. Their communications were constant. In fact, even after the transaction closed they were working for us to make sure we were satisfied. We would certainly work with them again and highly recommend their services!

My wife, Keri and I were very pleased with Tye and the rest of the Stockton Group during the entire buying process for our second home. We are big on customer service and they were unbelievably responsive to our questions and walked us through the transaction step by step. We know they had our best interest at heart.  Very few real estate transactions go smoothly....... Their diligence and knowledge made this the most effortless purchase we have ever been involved in. Tye was referred to us by a good friend and he, along with his team exceeded our expectations. If we were to buy or sell in the Vail Valley today, the Stockton Group would be our broker.
– The Cauthorns
Hiring the Stockton Group was one of the best decisions that we ever made. Selling our home with them was a seamless process and they understood that our hearts and souls were in this home that we built almost 20 years ago. They really understood our market and advised us perfectly. Further, they delivered on their promises and exceeded our expectations throughout the process. Anyone who is selling their home should look no further than the Stockton Group.
– The Johnsons
Working with Tom and Pat could not have been a more ideal process for us. From day one it was evident that Tom was looking out for our best interest over making a sale. We had a lot of variables to weigh to purchase our home, and it was comforting throughout the process to know that Tom would be candid and honest with us, regardless of the outcome. He was not only great to work with prior to closing, but remained our best advocate after we closed on the house as well. We had a few small issues that we were almost willing to overlook just to avoid the hassle. Tom took on the hassle for us and got them taken care of. He treated us better than we would have treated ourselves!

Tye is tenacious and lives in the East Vail area and did an amazing job getting a top price on our Big Horn property. He currently has the highest priced home under contract in East Vail. Not only will he bring you the highest price the market will bear , I know you will enjoy working with him.

We had selected an agent to work with before meeting Tom. After meeting with Tom and Pat and learning more about The Stockton Group’s competitive advantage it was obvious they were the only choice. Their team approach was swift, concise and professional. The most impressive part was how Tom executed the negotiating process to achieve a record breaking sale for our home. If you want results then look no further than The Stockton Group.

I want to thank Tye and his team for the excellent service in getting our house under contract and then through to sales completion. Sotheby’s only started the process in December 2017 after the property had been with another agency for over two years during which time we did not receive a single offer. By mid January 2018, we had received two offers and this led up a final offer which we accepted. The counter party’s agent was less than efficient in processing its client offer which led to complications that were tactfully and successfully handled by your team. The sales materials which were produced by the team were undoubtedly a key factor in securing the offers, but perhaps more importantly it was the energy of Tye and the team which were instrumental in finding a buyer and in securing the sale. Once again many thanks to all.

I have told Pat he's the worlds greatest real estate agent. I wasn't joking. Pat is so fun to work with. Buying and selling a house shouldn't be a dreadful, hard process, and with Pat and the Stockton group, it's not. Its actually enjoyable. That outcome alone speaks volumes about their knowledge, professionalism, and process.  Pat got us our first house for a fair price even though it was in a bidding war. 4 years later he then sold that same house for us in 2 weeks, while simultaneously selling us an new place with more land. The whole thing was easy. When my business was looking to acquire a "for sale by owner" property, Pat and Tye came to a meeting to mediate and share expertise on the deal, with no comission on the line. They came to help and that was all. True community guys with big vision and big hearts. The Stockton group is the only choice when it comes to anything related real estate.

I used Tye Stockton and The Stockton Group to sell my home in Vail in the winter of 2018.  In particular I wanted Tye because he knew my area and Vail Mountain School well, which I thought would be a draw for my location.  They were on top of everything. They all were so professional and there were no glitches in the entire process as a result. Tye was a great asset for me in particular because of living near me and because he is so connected to the area and to Vail. I could not recommend them more highly. I could add that the house sold pretty fast. That every time it was shown, I came home and everything was perfect - no lights were left on, things moved, etc. That Brooke is amazing and made everything happen.

In the Eagle River Valley we have used Tye to sell two homes and buy one in the last ten years. What we love best about doing business with Tye is that he listens very, very carefully. Are you looking for a quick sale, do you want to push the market, how do you live in your house, what are you looking for in a new home...it's clear from the start that the transaction is all about you and your interests. I truly believe that his success in the real estate business (and he is very succesful) flows naturally from putting his clients first. We would also be remiss if we didn't mention the truly first class team of associates that he has assembled to assist in these transactions.

Tye is simply the most professional realtor that I have ever had the pleasure to deal with.  He understands the market, he listens very carefully to his clients, and he's totally honest.  On top of that he and Brielle are two of the nicest people we know in this valley.
– Lex P.
Tye helped us sell our home in Vail and buy another home in Eagle.  We were totally satisfied with his services in both instances. He is realistic, professional, and totally honest. I have and will recommend him to anyone looking to buy or sell a home in the Eagle Valley. I am confident that you won't be disappointed.

Having been in the real estate industry my entire career I have dealt with all types. Tom Dunn with LIV Sotheby’s International Realty, is a stand out as a real estate professional! Tom was savvy and concise with his advice and delivered on his word. I would without hesitation recommend Tom to handle any real estate need in the Vail Valley.

Since 1994, when we purchased a one week time share ownership in Beaver Creek, my husband and I knew that we eventually wanted to spend as much time as possible in the Vail Valley and eventually retire there.  Somewhat impulsively, we planned a fall visit in 2016 with the intention of evaluating the options of where to live when the day came to purchase.  Fortunately for us, we ended up with Tom Dunn as our realtor.  Tom spent two full days with us and was informative, responsive and proactive to our needs.  At the end of that weekend we (surprisingly!) put in an offer.  That was a great move!!  Now, two years later, we are in our second home with Tom's help.  Tom knows the area well and really helped us evaluate Vail vs. Beaver Creek vs. Cordillera and how each option would impact our current situation, as seasonal visitors, our future situation, as retirees, and the desirability of visiting for our "young adult children".  We have purchased 7 homes in our 30 years together and have had only great experiences when using Tom as our realtor!  And, we now have a true friend in the Vail Valley.

Patrick Barrett of The Stockton Group was highly recommended to us by a Sotheby’s broker in another city.  After having worked with Patrick on multiple transactions over the course of the last 3 years, we understand why he has a national reputation.  We feel very lucky to have had him in our corner as he always looked out for our best interest and maximized value at every opportunity, no matter how big or small.  His depth of knowledge on each and every property and the surrounding area was invaluable.  If you are looking for an honest, hard-working agent that is super responsive and always available, Patrick is your guy!  We have “paid it forward” and referred him numerous times and will without a doubt use him again when the opportunity arises.

Just wanted to thank you for doing such a good job on getting our condo sold in an easy and efficient manner.  We had a rather lengthy process before moving over to the A-Team and just wanted to let you know how much we appreciate it. Thank you for all of your help and expertise! You are all first rate.
– Eric P.
Our experience working with Pat Barrett was exceptional, far exceeding our expectations. Relocating to the Vail area from Chicago could have been an overwhelming experience, but Pat's attentiveness and expertise eliminated all stress.  From the start, Pat was patient with our timeline and continually kept us informed of new listings and market trends.  Pat was attentive and professional throughout the entire process, going above and beyond to ensure a smooth purchase and successful transition to the Vail Valley.  Purchasing and closing on a home from thousands of miles away was a breeze, thanks to Pat and his personal dedication to delivering an exceptional client experience.  Our family is truly thankful to Pat and all he has done for us over the past several years, he made our dream of of moving to Colorado come true.  I highly recommend Pat to anyone seeking an exceptional real estate experience.
