I highly recommend Tim Papi! Not only has he been an active community member in Durango for over 25 years, he is by far the best real estate agent I've ever worked with. Not only did he attend to every detail in a more than timely manner, he answered every text and phone call asap. A few hiccups occurred, but these were taken care of promptly. In the end, he got me a great deal on the sale of my property!
I have been working with Tim for nearly two years as a non profit organization to purchase property in the Southwest part of Colorado.
Tim is always cheerful, has incredible problem solving skills when it comes to thinking outside of the box yet has excellent knowledge and follow through in any standard situation as well.
Tim takes the time to get to know his customer, what they are looking for and always does his due diligence when it comes to whether or not a commercial property is going to be the best fit on an organizational/business level.
Tim was on top of the deadlines and contracts throughout the entire process and it was a load off to be able to work with a realtor we could trust.
If you are looking for a realtor who genuinely cares, has your best interests in mind and will work in your best interests every time, Tim is definitely the best choice.
Tim was pivotal in every aspect of our recent home purchase in Durango. We lived 6 hours away, so Tim met inspectors, electricians, radon mitigators, internet and wireless specialists, etc on our behalf. He gave us great advice on how to move forward with potential issues and stayed on top of every deadline. We are now enjoying our dream home and property and couldn't have done that without Tim!
