I honestly and wholeheartedly recommend Setterfield & Bright as the best and only real estate brokerage for any business or investor in the Aspen market."

"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..."

New Aspen Homeowner
"Anyone that has spent more than five minutes with Galen has experienced the "Galen Factor." His undeniably positive, upbeat attitude and genuine personality are a rarity. 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. Thanks Galen!!!!"
