Buying a new home can be stressful, buying a new home in a new state and over 1,000 miles away can be terrifying. Audrie was wonderful, she walked me through every step of the process and offered great thoughts and insights. She replied to my questions and inquiries promptly and thoroughly. She is very familiar with the area and facilitated a quick and easy closing. I would highly recommend Audrie for any and all of your real estate needs.

Josh Stover

Thank you so much, to you and Josh, for helping Ellen and Cody get the house!!  They are so happy and excited!  Ellen told me that you guys were amazing. She said the advice and extremely good customer service you both provided was exceptional.  Getting this house would not of happened for them if it wasn’t for you and Josh.

Dana Patten

By far the best experience we’ve had with a realtor. She’s extremely responsive and helped with the smallest details. Recommend her, absolutely! Audrie answered all voicemails/texts/emails promptly.

Christine Polak

After inheriting a condo in Gunnison that we needed to sell immediately, we were lucky to have walked into Cathie Elliott’s office early one morning. We were so thankful and appreciative as Cathie quickly and effectively guided this process to a seamless sale. Her professional, responsive, detailed, calm, conscientious work throughout the process made our lives easier. We were able to trust her completely, since we were selling the property remotely, and we were so appreciative of her experience and attention to detail. This was a smooth transition for all parties, who benefited from her knowledge, her skill in pulling every element together, and her effective, rapid response at every turn. Cathie is an excellent realtor and human being!

Brad and Cindy Taylor

Josh and Audrie Townsend have been caring for our house for the past four years and have done an outstanding job. They routinely check the house to make sure everything is OK, such as heat/freeze precautions as well as taking care of the yard. Josh has done extensive remodeling for us including a complete renovation of our second bathroom – new tile, tub, lighting and vanity. He has redone interior lighting, painted the outside, installed exterior metal sheeting on the bottom 2 ft of the siding and landscaped the front yard. Audrie was kind enough to buy us a Christmas tree and have it waiting for us when we arrived just before Christmas. They are excellent, nice people and we are so grateful for their help.

Dave from Texas

Audrie Townsend – Thank you for the excellent customer service during the purchase of my Mother’s town home last year. You went above and beyond!

Holly Halter

Audrie was a great person to work with. She would answer or find out any questions about a property that we had. Audrie did a wonderful job of finding places that we had a interest in, and we now have a new home!!

Tami Frank

Working with Audrie was a breath of fresh air. She was always there to answer my questions and concerns, day and night. She was extremely receptive to our wants and needs and she always had our best interest throughout the entire process! Thank you Audrie

Stacy Lawrence

I’ve now purchased 4 properties across 2 states. Some were primary, and others rentals. The experience I had with Audrie was far and away the best I’ve had in any of the previous RE transactions. My purchase with her was also perhaps the most complicated of all the transactions I’ve had thus far. She is responsive, collected, and most importantly tactful in her suggestions and approach. I will definitely continue to use Audrie for my Real Estate purchases in the area. Thank You

Alex Madden

Josh was very helpful in the process of selling our house and purchasing our new house. He always returned our call in a timely manner and worked in the best interest of us in both contracts.

Cassie & Lew Brown

Being a native Gunnisonite, Josh knows Gunnison County and its real estate market inside and out. He also benefits from a mentor that can be described as one of the best in the biz, Cathie Elliott. Josh sold our house and got us into the house we wanted in the exact location we wanted all within a 30 day window. He was on point every twist and turn in the process. His market analysis was spot on unlike many realtors in Gunnison who try to pump up the market to be something it is not. Thanks Josh, you did a great job.

Joel Scott

Josh was wonderful to work with! He was very responsive to our needs, and had a great understanding of the local market! He helped us close our deal quickly and with minimal headaches! I would highly recommend him to others!

Tyler Leonard

In describing our experiences with Audrie, two phrases come to mind, “honest and straightforward” and “above and beyond.” She was able to expertly overcome numerous hurdles to make a very difficult deal, that in end, all were happy with. If looking for a realtor in the Gunnison area, we give Audrie our highest and unreserved recommendation.

Daryl Haan

Cathie is a great Realtor. Anytime I had questions she responded and answered them quickly throughout the whole process. She worked with me and my schedule so that I could look at places whenever the time worked for me. She’s a pleasure to work with. Thanks again Cathie!!!

Jason Briggs

Cathie is the most knowledgeable, professional and honest real estate agent I have ever worked with. I worked with her from 300 miles away and it was not a problem at all. I was patient and found just the right place with her help.

Colleen Cope

It is a rare situation that people go as far above and beyond the call of duty as Audrie does to help people acquire the properties of their dreams. My husband and I are extremely grateful for her diligence and help in our buying process.

Danielle Knollenberg

Audrie helped with the purchase and subsequent sale of a home in Gunnison Colorado. She was perfect with her clear and prompt communication. She was a refreshing force to have looking after your interests and I couldn’t have asked for more.

Bruce Dillon

By far the best real estate I have had the experience with!!! This is my 3rd house purchase but have never felt more at ease buying a house and never felt more confident in my real estate agent.

Kenneth Anderson

I lived in Florida when I decided to move to Gunnison to be near my daughter, Holly. She put me in touch with Audrie who sent me information about homes for sale on the internet. She was so friendly, it was very easy to communicate with her on the phone or computer. She was very helpful when I put an offer in on my home with all of the details and decisions involved. Even after I finally moved into my home, she was available for advice while I got settled and adjusted to my new environment. Yes, I would recommend Audrie to a friend.

Kaye Halter

We are not local to the Gunnison Valley so relied heavily on Audrie’s knowledge of the neighborhoods and community. She provided excellent background information and was very forthcoming in providing her informed opinion, both positive and negative. We always felt like she was being objective and truly invested in helping us find the right property for us. We had a number of priorities, some of which were conflicting :). Audrie was patient with us as we sorted through what we really wanted and needed versus what we thought we wanted. She asked insightful questions and made suggestions that helped us through that process. She was completely reliable and always proactive throughout the process of loan approval and negotiation/appraisal/inspection/etc. We would absolutely work with Audrie again

Michelle Quinn

Audrie was awesome. She is very professional, really knows her stuff and responded to everything very quickly. She helped everything go smoothly. Audrie helped us though everything from showing us the homes, to making an offer, completing finance documents and getting everything finalized and making sure things went smoothly. We purchased remotely and felt very comfortable having her as our advocate.

Bob Czillinger

Audrie was a great help in making the transaction as smooth and fun and possible. She responded quickly and thoroughly to all of our emails, calls, and questions, and is very knowledgeable and professional. We look forward to working with her in the future!

Jill Lazo

Josh was right on target when he provided us with a list price for our home that would create interest from buyers. We had never sold a home before, so it was a learning process for us and we appreciated that he always listened to our frustrations. He did everything he could to answer questions or resolve problems for the duration of the selling process. We never had an issue contacting him, he always responded to phone calls and emails within and acceptable time frame

Dee Reed

We were buyers from out of state and fully relied on Ms. Elliott’s knowledge and expertise in finding our property, negotiating with the sellers and finally conducting the walk-thru for us. Ms. Elliott went above and beyond in providing her services, which resulted in a successful outcome for us. She is a pleasure to work with and I will recommend Ms. Elliott and her agency to anyone looking for an honest, dedicated and unselfish broker,in Gunnison, CO. She repeatedly put our best interest first and foremost.

Brenda and Ira Haase

If you are serious in selling or buying property, no other realtor or broker will give you the dedication and professional attention than Cathie Elliott. She is an awesome person and our experience with her was nothing short of remarkable. We highly recommend her.

Ron and Caree Musick

Cathie is a total pro-highly recommend-stayed in touch on consistent basis-solid advice when needed-on top of market-total trust established for us and with prospects.

Phil Virden

Cathie listed and sold our home with some creative ideas in a locally bad market. She is extremely easy to work with and answers any questions quickly and digs for answers if she doesn’t have them right then. The paperwork is easy to do with her help and guidance in all phases of the listing. I would recommend Cathie to anyone needing an excellent Realtor in the Gunnison Area.

Gary Rogers

Owner Gunnison Country Shopper

Cathie is fantastic. She is expert, listens carefully, provides great advice, and is on top of every step and action needed to sell or buy real estate. We have been both buyers and sellers with her and cannot imagine going with another agent.

Jessica Young

Cathie Elliott is amazing, easy to work with, honest! I had a wonderful experience, she gave great advice, followed up with everything that she said she was going to do and worked hard to get my house sold in two months. I would recommend her to anyone and would use her again to purchase a house!

Rachel Dando

Cathie was easy (and fun) to deal with. Buying a home is serious business and her sense of humor and support helped us over some of the inevitable rough spots. Cathie also made a point of showing us what was available to meet our needs. The buying process was always about helping us and not her commission. That attitude made us feel secure and confident we would find what we wanted/needed: and we did!

Ralph Hanke

WSCU Professor

Cathie is a very experienced, realistic realtor in Gunnison, CO. In an area which is not known for fast sales, she brought the perfect people to see our house and sold it in three days with a full-price, cash offer. Can’t beat that!

Pat and Frank Venturo

Cathie did a fantastic job and kept us informed as to what was going on at all times. It was a pleasure doing business with her, especially being out of state. We could not have been more blessed.

Jenny and Herb Griggs

I was very fortunate to have Cathie as my real estate agent. I was purchasing a property in the Gunnison area, an area with which I was not familiar. Cathie has extensive knowledge of the area having worked in the Gunnison valley for over 30 years in real estate. During the purchase process she was very responsive, making sure everything stayed on schedule, coordinating with others involved in the process. I definitely would not have closed on time without her. She was always very quick to reply to any questions issues that I ran into. If I were to by or sell another property in the Gunnison area my first call would be to her. I highly recommend Cathie Elliott for any of your real estate needs.

Ryan VanLoo

During my listing with Cathie Elliott, I got to know her as the consummate professional. In addition to her extensive knowledge of real estate markets and the buying and selling climate of where we live, Cathie gave me first rate personal service. Cathie was sensitive to my personal challenges and I never felt like my humble house and property was any less important to her than a premium real estate contract. Cathie Elliott set the bar in the real estate business.

Kimberlee Douglass

Cathie was awesome to work with!! She responded to all my questions and concerns quickly no matter what time I emailed her. Cathie knows the Gunnison county real estate market as good or better than anyone else I know. We have complete confidence in Cathie and will most definitely go to her with our real estate needs.

Brenda and Nick Spallone

Spallone Construction

I recently purchased a commercial real estate in the town of Gunnison. Cathie Elliot was the listing agent and I chose to use her as buyer agent. I’ve been in Gunnison for 20 years and have never heard a foul word about Cathie as an agent, so I felt like I could extend my trust in her to act in my interest as well as the sellers interest and in so doing negotiate a deal that would be a win win for us both. My intuitions were correct. Cathie was a able to expedite a fair deal for both me and the seller. She was all was always quick in response to my questions and provided me with simple to use documents. I enjoyed the experience of the transaction and would work with her again in the event of future real estate transactions.

Joe Bob Merritt

Director, South Main Studios LLC

I loved working with Cathie. I was a first-time home buyer, so was very unfamiliar with the process and had so many questions at every step. Cathie is honest, trustworthy, and helpful at all levels. She is friendly and professional, so easy to work with, and gets things done with a no-nonsense attitude. She presents the facts as they are and does not try to throw out a frilly sales pitch. I’d recommend Cathie to anyone needing any kind of real estate service.

Angie Allen

Elementary Teacher

There were several complications to my listing; I don’t live in town, the HOA was not great in responding, I had renters in and out of the unit. Cathie remained extremely professional, responsive and gave me solid, clear advice when there were speed bumps. She is flexible, realistic, and very knowledgeable. She also knows Gunnison and the valley very well and is a great resource because she has so many connections. A fantastic realtor and a nice person.

Leslie Channell

My experience with Cathie Elliott was just about the best anyone could expect in selling their home. We had a lot of personal equity, in addition to financial equity, invested in our home and having an agent who understood that was important. We had done a complete renovation and needed to get a fair return for our efforts. We were able to do so. Cathie went the extra mile for us in so many ways, including finding us a terrific buyer and then facilitating the sale in a gentle and masterful manner. Highly recommended!

Michelle Campbell

Campbell Consulting

I have had a few real estate experiences with Cathie Elliott and all have been smooth, easy, and no nonsense. She shows up on time, has everything taken care of, and doesn’t waste time with high pressure sales pitches.

Eric Kowal

Kowal Construction

We had our building up for sale for less than 6 months when we went under contract. Cathie Elliott is very professional, helpful, and works hard to get your listing sold. We would recommend her to anyone and will use her again in the future!

Stan and Suzanne Esty

I have had the opportunity to work with Cathie Elliott as a realtor and professional business person in the Gunnison Community for over 15 years and I highly recommend her as a real estate agent in Gunnison and the surrounding area. Cathie has recently sold rental property for me and is currently listing property for sale for me. She is very professional and thorough. She keeps consistent communication with me and responds quickly to my questions and requests.

Steve Shelafo

For years I have recommended Cathie Elliott to persons in the real estate market. When it came time to sell my own home, that is who I chose. I am glad I did.

Rufus Wilderson


Cathie was a pleasure to work with. She helped me find a great house and make a successful offer at a fair price. The closing had to be handled long distance but with Cathie’s assistance it wasn’t an issue.

Virginia Walton

We have just employed Cathie’s services for the second time in as many years. Having been established in the Gunnison-Crested Butte Valley for several decades, Cathie is a wealth of experience when it comes to homes and the local flavor of different parts of the valley. Would recommend her services to anyone interested in living or relocating to the Gunnison Crested Butte area.

Liz and Rob Petrie

Cathie is an excellent Realtor. She marketed and showed our home, networked with other brokers, notified us before every showing, and was always available and supportive at every hour and during every phase of the process, even in all of the little details. We would highly recommend Cathie for any service: buying, selling, or just getting a sense of the market.

Roger and Elizabeth Haga

Cathie is extremely helpful, whether you are buying or selling! You can’t do better in the Gunnison Valley! She takes the time to explain the process, follows up regularly and helps to make the process easy.

Wendy Forgey

There was never a doubt in my mind that choosing Cathie to be my agent was a good decision. Her experience and knowledge are second to none. Being unfamiliar with the process myself, I had TONS of questions. She was timely in her responses to me and fully answered all of my questions. The process of buying or selling a house can be overwhelming, but having someone like Cathie on your side is a priceless asset, as she does everything in her power to make the transaction as smooth as possible. I highly recommend Cathie to anyone looking for a real estate professional. Should the need arise, I will not hesitate to contact her in the future.

Stephanie Means

In an average market, Cathie moved three houses for me in three months. The results speak for themselves. She was professional and knowledgeable in every way. I would recommend her to anyone in Gunnison County.

Tyler Fleck

We highly recommend Cathie Elliott for all your real estate needs in the Gunnison and local surrounding areas. Cathie recently represented us and handled every aspect of our transaction with high integrity and professionalism. Cathie has extensive experience and knowledge of the local real estate market and works very hard to meet the needs of her clients. Again highly recommended!

Marcia Wireman

Cathie Elliott is a very knowledgeable and professional real estate agent, and we have worked with her both when buying and selling a home. She is timely, thorough, and practical, and helped up to ask the right questions when purchasing a home, and make the et improvements when selling our property. She is fair and sensible in negotiations, and has a very good understanding of the real estate market in Gunnison and the surrounding areas. I always felt that she had our best interests in mind, and would advise us accordingly to buy and sell at fair prices. Shew as also easy to work with on a one-on-one basis, and my questions were always answered promptly. As a real estate agent, she has my highest recommendation.

Teresa Milbrodt

Cathie helped us sell our home and the deal was done within 45 days. She helped us throughout the entire process and we could not be more satisfied with her as our realtor!

Jessica Waggoner

Cathie was awesome! We couldn’t have asked for anyone better. We had a very stubborn and unwilling loan representative and she was willing to help us with her and extend deadlines when needed. We would highly recommend!

Whitney Zerr

We worked with Cathie to buy a home in Gunnison. She did a great job understanding what we were looking for and then guiding us to the perfect listing. Without her knowledge and guidance, it would have been extremely difficult for us to purchase from out of state. She did a great job with all aspects of the process from the very first call we had with her through the closing, and great follow-up after we took possession and moved in. We enjoyed working with her and would highly recommend her to any buyer or seller!

Paul Kretekos

Cathie was extremely helpful in every aspect of selling our house from offering advice on what to do to prepare and stage our house, information on the market situation, and matching potential buyers with our property. We would definitely choose Cathie for any future real estate needs.

Stu Ferguson

Cathie is not only knowledgeable about the real estate business in that area, but is also a personable individual. I felt I could trust her within minutes of meeting her. I asked around in the area and she has a lot of respect from many local business people and townspeople.

Mary Jo Malafa

This was the first real estate transaction I’ve done since I bought my house in 1988. Things have changed so much. Thank goodness for Cathie Elliott. The new technology, her professionalism, and her communication are just a few reasons to use Cathie as your real estate expert. When my mother passed away, Cathie helped us every step of the way. She was quite patient. Once we decided to list the house, the action started to happen. The house sold in about 30 days of listing it. Closing was the smoothest I’ve ever done. She knows the area. She gets to know her sellers, and she matches buyers perfectly. I highly recommend Cathie for any of your real estate needs!

Britt Jardon

Cathie sold my house quickly, provided solid advice, and was very responsive to my emails! Local knowledge in Gunnison is very important in a small town and Cathie has excellent knowledge of the area. Thanks for an easy house selling experience!

Amanda Moore

I couldn’t have asked for better. She was able to get more for the property than we expected and provided a professional approach to sales. It was a difficult piece of property to market, but Cathie knew how to find the right buyer.

Joe Puchek

I have known Cathie Elliott, Clarke Realty, since 2008. She was the Seller’s broker for a condo and I was a Colorado licensed real estate broker representing myself. My purchase of the condo went very smoothly. No longer am I licensed, so in July 2015, I contracted with Cathie to be a broker for me in the sale of my condo. Cathie was able to obtain a buyer for my condo in a relatively short time, wrote a very clean contract and covered the closing in a very professional manner. Cathie is very professional, knows the Gunnison Country and the properties. I have the greatest esteem for her expertise and knowledge and would not hesitate to recommend her services.

Carol Greenlee

Cathie was in contact with me frequently via email. I appreciated being notified of all actions regarding the sale of my home. It was nice to not get phone calls and texts but rather emails. I trust Cathie. She has been in the real estate business in Gunnison for many years and is very knowledgeable about the market there. I highly recommend Cathie Elliott as a top notch, professional agent.

Laurie McKenzie

Cathie Elliott was great to work with when we purchased our home in Gunnison. She made good recommendations in our price range and helped us find a nice home. She kept each step of the process moving forward and kept us informed of the progress as well. She was also very low key and comfortable to work with which made what could have been a stressful time, not very stressful.

Caitlin Bernier

Owner/GIS Analyst at Pangaea Geospatial LLC

Cathie is the ultimate professional who knows the real estate in her area and will always work with you to find a perfect home for you. She is interested in your ideas and needs. I worked with Cathie both as a real estate buyer and colleague at Western State and would love the opportunity to work with her again.

Christine Purkiss

Associate Professor of Education at Angelo State University

The real estate market was just entering the doldrums and we needed to move away from Colorado. We’d already bought a house in Texas and we really didn’t want two mortgages. We were motivated sellers in a rapidly worsening market. Cathie had helped us before we’d sold a lot in the city, so we had high expectations of her. And she surpassed them all.” -Mike Avery, Technical Support Analyst at PDS Technical Services “Cathie is a top-notch realtor. She knows the market and is a good listener. She truly cares about her customers and works hard to get the job done. I highly recommend her.

Vicki Spencer

Manager of External Affairs

Cathie Elliott is best known for her integrity and professionalism. It is difficult to know whether the success that she is so well known for is because she knows her markets and financial conditions so well or because she is such a stellar person. I believe it is both.

Bill Waltz

Rector at Good Samaritan Episcopal Church

Cathie is a pleasure to work with. She is very professional and personable. She works hard to know what her clients needs are and to make the process of buying or selling property clear and understandable. A word that comes to mind to describe Cathie’s work ethic is integrity!

Sean McCormick

District Foreman at Gunnison County

Although my family decided to move to W.V. for a job opportunity that I couldn’t refuse, while we were living in Gunnison, my wife looked at some houses that Cathie had listed. She was always pleasant to work with and I could tell that she was honest. She also had regular open houses for her clients and I liked how she would focus on marketing different houses.

Larry Sheret

Instruction and Emerging Technologies Librarian/Marshall University

Cathie has been our realtor for houses we have sold. She is above board in all her dealings. You can trust Cathie to give your project the time and attention it needs to sell. I have known Cathie for over 30 years. I cannot think of anyone with higher integrity than Cathie Elliott.

Tami Maciejko

Aquatics Director/Professor at Western State College

We purchased our home here in Gunnison, Colorado through Cathie. Being new to the community and to Colorado there were many things we didn’t understand. We were selling real estate in another state and Cathie was extremely helpful and knowledgeable through the whole process. She always had our best interest in mind and was truly a great asset in getting things done.

Sharie Lisowski

Administrative Assistant at The Gunnison Bank and Trust Company

When I moved to the Gunnison Valley in 2005, I knew I’d be looking for a home to purchase. I checked around with local folks, and I asked a good friend real estate broker back in the area I came from to recommend someone. All these investigations pointed to Cathie. In 2006 I contacted Cathie and began to look in earnest. My wife was still working 2000 miles away.

Randy Spydell

Geology & Environmental Biology Instructor, Land Use Planner, IT Consultant

Cathie is detail oriented and very knowledgeable about the local area, trends and items to pay attention to as a prospective home buyer. I have recommended her to friends as my top pick for real estate needs in my area.

Cathie is one of the best Realtors I have known. She doesn’t push her clients to make decisions so she can make her commission. She treats them the way she would like to be treated.

Scott Schultheis

Loan Officer at RMC Mortgage

It was so great to work with Cathie. She fought on our behalf.

Cathie was recommended to help us sell our home by several friends and our building contractor and now we know why. Cathie embodies the perfect blend of professional and personal skills. She has been prompt and responsive to all our inquires, she communicates with a direct and pleasant style, and is very organized. Within 2 months of listing, we got the offer we were looking for, and Cathie walked us through the closing. She made the process easy and now we are the ones recommending Cathie Elliott to anyone with real estate needs.
