"Galen.....thank you so much for the professional way you handled our sale. It meant even more to us as everything was handled over the phone, fax, etc. It was not one of your easier ones I am sure, but you came through for us with a full price offer. Everything from that day on went so smoothly. You helped us fight the right people for every step of the way..."

"Angi Wang's hard work and support made my partner and I’s business a reality. Angi’s drive and persistence allowed us to overcome numerous logistical issues. Her familiarity with local contractors allowed us to return our, previously incapacitated, space to operational condition. And her tireless efforts allowed us to get our business up and running within our remarkably short timeline. Furthermore, once the deal was complete Angi didn’t disappear.
Instead she proved to be one of our greatest champions constantly checking in on our status, going out of her way to introduce us to members of the local community, and relentlessly spreading knowledge of our new business."

experience I've ever had looking for property. Angi has a way of understanding exactly what you are looking for and the results are lightning fast. Hard working, warm and personable, you always feel like you are priority number one. And other real estate agents love her, always greeting her warmly at whatever showing we attended. That says a lot. You get the VIP treatment from all because she is so professional and well liked. I give her my highest recommendation and I am not easy to please."

"Galen Bright sold our condo for us this summer. He went above and beyond in every way. He was always accessible, returned calls, texts & emails in a timely manner & has an incredible knowledge of the real estate market in Aspen. When we couldn't be there before the closing he and his assistant, Alexandra George, generously offered to pack our belongings for us and send them! I don't know another realtor who would have done that. If we ever revisit ownership in or around the Aspen area we would definitely use Galen. Sincere thanks to you & Alex for all your hard work.....it was much appreciated!"

"My experience with Galen Bright has been nothing but positive. We have been trying to sell a condo for me for 4 1/2 months under a lot of adverse conditions.
Where as I would explode over some of the ridiculous requirements, Galen would always calm the situation down and move on with business. I don't believe my condo could have been sold without his calm, steady manner. I certainly appreciated all his help."

"I could not have picked a better person than Galen to help me with my recent house purchase. Not only is Galen superbly knowledgeable about the market he is equally savvy with the various systems of construction. He asked questions that I would not have thought to ask and had solutions to various issues just as trustworthy as any contractor. Beyond the practical bit of finding the right house, it was a blast to work with Galen."

His attention to detail makes doing business easy and effortless. When a matching full-price offer placed the very same day as our bid, we were happy to have the "Galen Factor " on our side and it paid off...not only was our offer accepted, Galen also helped convince the homeowners association to accept our two dogs, Bean and Sage.
