I honestly can’t say enough good things about Sunny. I set out looking for a realtor/builder in Steamboat and ended up finding a lifetime friend. Sunny is an extremely knowledgeable realtor and builder here in Steamboat. If you’re an investor she’s the one that you want on your side since she’s been investing her own money in Steamboat since the early 2000’s. If you’re just looking for a place here in Steamboat Sunny is who you want on your side because she doesn’t need your commission and she’s going to tell you the truth about any property that you look at. She’s also incredibly responsive which is impressive due to the number of clients she has at any one time. I met Sunny at the end of August and I was amazed by her work ethic. In between showing me houses she was on the phone multitasking and pumping contacts trying to find the perfect opportunity for me. After learning more about what I was interested in she found a great opportunity for me in downtown Steamboat that just came on the market that day which I planned to flip within a year. We worked together until ~8 pm that night. While being under contract on this property Sunny introduced me to a lot of her subcontractors which is incredibly generous of her since she’s a builder herself. Lots of builders do not like to introduce other builders to their subcontractors because that means that they’ll be tied up working on jobs that aren’t there’s so I was very grateful for her to do that for me. This was also going to be my first major flip and Sunny was adamant about assisting me throughout the entire process at no charge but unfortunately, this house had asbestos so we had to back out. A week goes by and Sunny calls me about an amazing opportunity in a well sought after neighborhood. It’s the type of real estate investment that will allow you to quit your day job if you wanted to. It’s a single-family home with a large caretaker that can be converted into a duplex in between a golf course and a world-class ski resort. I’m anticipating a ~200% yield on this property which surpassed my goals by a significant margin. At this point, I want to point out that Sunny and her husband could have easily bought this property themselves and reaped the reward of turning this into a duplex. They live in town, they’re already doing this on another property, they have all the subcontractors, architects, etc. to turn this around in no time but she gave it to me. This alone should show you what kind of person Sunny is. She may come across as all business with a tough exterior but she is one of the most thoughtful and compassionate individuals I have ever met. Being in a seller’s market it was extremely difficult to get under contract on this property and I think if I had anyone else working for me I wouldn’t have been able to get this done. Sunny made phone calls, sent emails and did everything humanly possible to get the sellers to accept my offer. And when my Lender backed out 5 days before closing due to negligence she introduced me to several of her other lenders calling them personally to explain the situation and get them to start working on my application in an expedited fashion. And when the sellers got spooked and wanted to place the property back on the market Sunny made phone calls to the listing agent and the sellers to ensure that they understood what was going on, putting them at ease so they would grant the extension. And when the title company let everyone know that they couldn’t guarantee title due to the caretaker being a couple of feet over the utility easement at 4 pm on a Friday the day of the loan objection deadline it was Sunny that called her personal contacts at the county and yet again smoothed things over with the sellers so that they would grant another extension. I seriously can’t say enough about Sunny and I’ll never be able to repay her for how much of an impact she’s had on my life. She’s truly a person that you only come across once in a lifetime and I’m humbled that she dedicated so much of her time to me over the last couple of months. I’m happy to say that I gained a lifetime realtor, mentor, friend, and family member with Sunny and her husband. If you want someone that’s going to fight tooth and nail for you and give you expert advice in the Steamboat area Sunny is your realtor!
