Ken Van Skiver

 Broker Associate  
2023 S Townsend Avenue, Montrose, CO 81401
Born and raised in Upstate NY. Studied Engineering at RIT then worked for Xerox for 15 years and ended up in Southern California.

Escaped to Telluride in 1988 and began my real estate career selling resort properties and ranches.  Moved to Delta County in 2000 and started horse-ranching while continuing my Real Estate career in residential, farm/ranch and commercial properties. 

Obtained a Mortgage Broker License in 2009 to broaden my experience with home purchase and refi loans.
Recently made the "final" move to Cobble Creek Golf Course in Montrose and joined Coldwell Banker to compliment my new direction for success. 

Married to Kay Magruder, RDH. Enjoy endless outdoor activities, year-round, in Western Colorado.


Ken sold our house last fall, 2019. While many homes in our area had been on the market for many months ours sold in 5 weeks. We feel this happened due to Ken’s expertise in every aspect of advising us and ensuring our property was ready for showing and fairly priced. As we
were out of the country when the offer was made, Ken took the lead and handled all aspects of the sale including arranging the inspection repairs. Ken made us feel like more than just another client and more like he was our personal real estate agent.
We would highly recommend Ken for all your real estate needs.

"Several of the "how to" books my husband and I read suggested that we interview realtors before house shopping; we did, and Ken Van Skiver stood out as someone who was honest, patient and friendly. Because of these characteristics, we chose him for our Realtor and were never disappointed! Throughout the buying process Ken explained confusing real estate jargon, patiently answered all of our questions and did his best to work around our busy schedules. He was also conscientious about keeping in contact with us, even when we had difficulty returning his messages in a timely manner. Without any reservations, I will recommend Ken to others who are embarking on the home-buying or selling journey."

 "Ken - We really enjoyed working with you to find our first home! You really understood what we were (and weren't) looking for. Not only did you make sure that we were able to look at every house we inquired about, you did so on crutches, going the extra mile in our eyes.

Thanks for not being pushy and for focusing on our wants and needs above all else.

We'll recommend you to all of our friends!"

The Swaims - Montrose, CO

“….Ken has been nothing but positive, helpful, accomodating and honest. Over the past 2.5 years we've looked at property from Nebraska to New Mexico and have dealt with enough real estate people to realize that Ken is not your typical Realtor.....with his assistance we have found the perfect place for us in Montrose. We appreciate Ken's professionalism and work ethic….."

The Cobbs - Cedaredge, CO


""Ken Van Skiver has provided me and my partners with highly professional real estate services over the past decade.  This includes buying and selling both franchised and independent hotels throughout Colorado, as well as supporting our efforts to obtain SBA Loans and advising us on market conditions.  I would recommend Ken for anyone needing a Buyer's Agent to purchase an income property or, as a Listing Agent who will obtain top dollar for your property.

We completed our second home purchase with Ken in May of this year. This home was a rental purchase and his knowledge of the community and insight was most helpful. He was a source of very helpful advice and easy to work with. If we do any other transactions in the Montrose area, Ken will be our first call.

Ken was able to help me get through the selling process of my home even with the hurtle of having a renter during some of the timeframe. His suggestions for getting the home ready was very valuable. He also became someone I could 'bounce' things off of, as for the first time, I was alone in this process and I felt comfort in his advise and support.
