My name is Jeff Skinner and I’m a Realtor here in beautiful Summit County Colorado. Like many, I was drawn here by the mountains and their allure of endless activity, beauty, and excitement. Growing up in South Carolina, I was first introduced to the foothills and Blue Ridge Mountains around the upstate, but upon my first family trip to Colorado I knew that the Rockies were where I belonged.
After a successful first winter working a resort job in the Mountains I was hooked, and needed to find a career; while Vail Resorts was wonderful I really craved a small business environment. By chance, I met a couple, Barb and Todd Rankin, that had been successful in Real Estate, and they decided to take me under their wing at their company, Cornerstone Real Estate. I worked as their assistant for over a year, learning as much as I could about buying, selling, negotiating, marketing, and how to help clients reach their goals. In May of 2014, I earned my Real Estate license, and started my own journey as a Realtor. As always, I maintain a stern commitment to customer service and work hard for my clients. Now, I get to enjoy Summit County as a resident, and also get to help others enjoy Summit County however they would like.
If you have any questions about Summit County, our mountains, the mountain lifestyle, Real Estate, and how I can help you reach your goals… I’d love to talk to you anytime.
" We were a bit worried about how the experience would be selling our townhome in Colorado since we lived across the country... But after our recent experience, we would do it again in a heatbeat if we could work with Jeff again! When we approached Jeff about listing our first home, he setup some time to chat and he was extremely thorough. He really wanted to know what we loved about living there and what would make us happy throughout each step of the process. Jeff educated us about what to expect, and even to expect that there may be bumps along the way. Once we confirmed we’d be listing our unit, Jeff and his team sprung into action and worked closely with our renters to schedule photos and showings. It was such a seamless experience, which was a relief being at a distance. With an offer coming in less than two days after listing, we knew Jeff had spread the word about our place, far and wide! After Jeff helped us navigate the first few phases, we encountered those bumps that he had mentioned. After the inspector identified some possible structural concerns, Jeff ran point on securing a structural engineer for consult, reaching out to countless contractors, and securing a quote for the work. With all of his hard work, we were able to provide the buyer with a solid resolution and one that took us straight to the closing table! His commitment and professionalism were key to us getting top dollar! We recommend choosing Jeff to help you buy or sell your property today. You won’t be disappointed! " - Erica and Tim Hendren
"Jeff was always available and provided exceptional communication throughout the process. I could not have asked for anything more from a representative. His advice was spot on." - Helen McGrew
"Jeff helped us sell our condo in Frisco this spring. He was very professional, if he did not know the answer to a question he always researched it and immediately got back to us. We sold in under two weeks and the closing process was very smooth." - Pete Gaskell Realtor.com Review
"I have to say, we would have been a tough group for Jeff. We had a lot of requests in a limited budget. He was AMAZING!! We looked at a lot of places. Many of which we walked in and walked out (these were our pics, not his). He did a GREAT job in negotiating our perfect place. It has been so wonderful for our family to have this condo as our retreat. He knew SO much about the area, was completely on top of all of our paperwork (as we live out of state), even found out how we could sign papers from our town (5 1/2 hours away!!), and was there to answer questions ANY time we called! He was amazing! We even had questions about things in the area months later and my husband didn't hesitate to call, knowing Jeff would be willing to help in any way he could. I would easily pick him to resell our condo or would call him or recommend him if someone was buying a new place!" - Brad and Abbie Burk Zillow review
"Jeff, I would like to thank you for doing such an excellent job in helping me sell my condo. You provided excellent advice during the negotiations and were courteous and professional throughout the entire process. I have used several agents over the years, but you topped them all in service. The sale process can often be stressful, but you made it easy and stress free and I appreciate that." - Rob Wingo
