"Steve was amazing and was a joy to work with! From start to finish he communicated impeccably, responded immediately to questions and his attention to detail was incredible. His pricing of our house was spot on, given his deep market knowledge. He screened people who viewed the house making sure this was the kind of home they were seeking. His marketing materials were absolutely first class and he put the necessary time and thought into the presentation. Steve then chose the time and place to present the house in Telluride. He also worked seamlessly with our property manager throughout the process. As the contract proceeded, Steve, due to his deep experience was instrumental in accomplishing a successful result with a happy buyer and a happy seller as he worked with both parties involved and the buyers clearly also shared high regard for him. We would highly recommend Steve as a listing agent or as an honest, knowledgeable and experienced broker to seek the home of your dreams."

"The most difficult thing about Steve is spelling his last name correctly.  He makes everything else look simple and straightforward through his experience, negotiating skills, calmness and attention to detail.  Steve is a serious and thoughtful person who delivers on his commitments.  This starts with punctuality; taking his and our time seriously - no “Telluride Time” nonsense here.   Not knowing him before this transaction, we had concerns the asking price he proposed was to secure the listing and then he would talk us into accepting a lower price; in fact our price expectations were exceeded.  Steve has a high level of integrity and takes his reputation seriously. The people Steve works with (lawyer, assistants, video and still photographers etc.) are aware of his high standards, seem pleased to work with him and speak highly of him. Steve’s negotiating skills are very impressive.  Things we thought may be issues were constructively resolved through preparation, openness and experience. Steve’s communications were very good; we always felt ours was his most important transaction no matter how busy he was; we were never surprised by anything unplanned, he was very clear on securing negotiating authority and seemed to work 24/7. Based on our experience, we have no hesitation in recommending Steve Cieciuch for your real estate transaction."

"Steve Cieciuch at Telluride Properties is truly the best of the best. I have had the great fortune of owning properties in different cities throughout the country. Over the last few years Steve has helped me acquire and sell several properties in the town of Telluride. On the acquisition of property Steve's  skill allowed me to end up winning multiple bidding processes and acquiring rental property that I sold one year later with an 80% return. The home we purchased in Telluride in 2017 for $3.5 million sold with Steve's help for a hair under $10 million just a few years later. Steve's experience with development, design, and an unequaled knowledge of the Telluride market make him the only choice for anyone who is serious about real estate in Telluride or the surrounding areas. Outside of all of the typical skills you would expect a realtor to have, and which Steve and his team absolutely do, Steve's quiet confidence and mild mannered approach has allowed him to build deep and lasting relationships with the most respected vendors and leaders in town. He lives in Telluride and continually gives back to the community which was always important to me. Sometimes people choose to do business with friends. More rarely people who you do business with become true friends. This has been the case with me. I am grateful to call Steve Cieciuch a friend and recommend him to anyone who is serious about acquiring or selling a home in Telluride. He is truly someone special!"
"I have sold many properties over the past 20 years. This experience of working with Steve was unique in the level of excellence he displayed throughout the process. I would highly recommend him to anyone looking to sell or buy a home in the Telluride area."
"We have worked with Steve Cieciuch and Telluride Properties as both buyers and sellers over the past several years, in both Norwood and Telluride. Our experience has been "first rate". Steve has been a joy to work with, as well as his entire office staff. They are thorough, honest and most of all, hard working. Our listings have been complicated ranch properties with many buildings, water rights and details that need explaining. Steve and his team don't miss a thing. From the initial photography to the closing process, they are as professional and responsive as any agent we have worked with. We highly recommend Steve Cieciuch and his team at Telluride Properties."

"Our home purchase experience, from beginning to end was the best and easiest experience we have ever had buying a home.  Steve listens intently.  He clearly watched and listened to what we would like in a second home and guided us to the most amazing home for us.   We could not be happier with the style, comfort and location of our Mountain Village home.  Steve knows the Telluride area.  He truly cared that we purchase a home in a location that would make us happy.  Now that we live here, we cannot believe how fortunate we are to live exactly where we live. Steve is honest, kind and patient."  


"Selling and buying property can be very stressful as one knows.  I had the pleasure of having Steve guide me in the sale of property and purchase of another. I always had the confidence that he had my best interest at heart.  Honest, reliable, kind, and very knowledgeable about the market.  Never did he impose his opinion, yet when asked he honestly gave his view on the situation.  He always went way beyond his responsibilities and took very good care of me and my family. I am eternally grateful for this wonderful man.  If you haven’t met him yet, you’re missing an angel amongst us."


"We have worked with Steve Cieciuch for many years for all our Telluride real estate needs.  Steve has a deep knowledge base and an excellent market sense: he always gives us excellent feedback and color on pricing, liquidity, and negotiation dynamics.  He works very hard and is always available. He makes good use of technology and spends liberally on marketing. He knows everyone, is a top leader in his market, is realistic and honest, and is a pleasure to work with.   Telluride Properties is a good outfit, and we have enjoyed working with Steve’s associates there as well."


"As a buyer, the experience we had with Stephen Cieiciuch and his team was second to none. Aside from his intimate knowledge of the community, he took every opportunity available to add value to the process. My wife and I discovered the home we eventually ended up purchasing on the last night of a trip to Telluride. Our plane was leaving early the next morning but without any hesitation, Stephen suggested he meet us at 6:00am the next morning to show us the property. We were absolutely taken by not only the home, but the way Stephen communicated the unique features of the home. In fact, his unique blend of professionalism with genuine love for community was truly impactful to us and made the decision to buy so much more gratifying. My wife and I would absolutely recommend Stephen to anyone looking to sell their home or anyone looking for a guide that will add untold value to the process on the buy side as well."

"As an active real estate investor, I have worked with many agents and brokers over the years. Without a doubt, Steve Cieciuch is one of the best agents I have ever worked with. He is responsive to the client’s needs and wishes and is totally focused on making any property search a success."


"I like doing business with Steve because of the great service and assistance he provided during our five transactions in Telluride Mountain Village… (His) knowledge of the economic climate in Telluride, (his) astute negotiating on our behalf, and (his) attentiveness and follow through all combined to give me the fine results that I required."


"Steve’s local expertise not only helped us find an outstanding ranch property, but it also helped us establish relationships to begin designing and building our new home. Steve will show you the best of the Telluride area."


"In a somewhat lengthy and complicated transaction that involved the Town of Telluride, The State of Colorado and other state agencies, Steve kept us totally informed and made the purchase a reality."


"Steve helped us learn about the wide variety of locales in the Telluride region and took the time to learn about our needs as well.

We have been coming to Telluride since 1983. Each time we visited we kept saying to ourselves, “Buy something. Buy something.” About a year ago we decided that 25 years was a long enough “get acquainted period”. We felt fortunate, then, to meet Steve Cieciuch to guide us much more deeply and carefully into a place that we thought we knew well, but it turns out we were puppy dogs compared to the experience of Steve. Steve helped us learn about the wide variety of locales in the Telluride region…..from the Mesas, to the Village, the town above Pacific, the town below Pacific, and more. Together we explored acreage far away and close to town, homes of all shapes and sizes, and in the process Steve learned about our needs, our tastes, and our temperament. In the dark financial days of April 2008, Steve called to say, “I may have found it. You must see this home. “ He was right. Karen flew to Telluride the next day and made an offer. And we are now loving our newly purchased Aldasoro home and learning even more about this place we love called Telluride. In buying our house, we’ve come to appreciate Steve even more than we did before. At the end of the day, that’s probably the best testimonial we could give. And we give it with full and firm conviction that he’s one in a million as a skier, fisherman, father, and person you should be working with if Telluride is in your sites."


"When I decided to list my Telluride property for sale I chose Steve because of his excellent reputation and his knowledge of the Telluride market and surrounding areas. Steve far surpassed my expectations as an agent. Although my home was modest in size it was located on 43 acres. Therefore water rights, well drilling, mineral rights and property surveys all came into play. Steve’s extensive knowledge regarding all facets of my transaction ensured a smooth and successful outcome. He and his staff were professional and responsive. Steve was an outstanding agent. I highly recommend Steve for your real estate transaction whether modest or grand."


"Steve’s knowledge of the area and market, as well as his outstanding level of professionalism, made our real estate transactions with him a great experience."
