“The market in Telluride can be very tough,” says Teddy Errico, a leading agent with Telluride Sotheby’s International Realty. “The incubation period can be two to four years. It takes buyers some time to visit alternate locales before they figure out Telluride is perfect for them.”
When it comes to showing off his market in the best light, Errico has embraced a philosophy of pairing enjoyable experiences with authentic connection. While navigating Telluride’s long sales window, he takes clients to the slopes and to local festivals — everything his unique corner of the world has to offer. As a result, his neighbors know that he’s genuine, and his clients get to share in his expertise.
“My buyers are having a good experience when I’m having a good experience. If you can get that point across — that there are fun things to do, a laid-back environment — there’s a good chance they’re going to return.”
