We reached out to Ann randomly on our drive up into Vail on a Saturday to see if we could visit some properties that fit our criteria. We had never worked with Ann and did not know much about Vail. Ann was patient while we worked through our spotty service from driving through the mountains and even provided some awesome lunch and dinner recommendations for Saturday. On Sunday, she met us on time and even more prepared than we imagined (with such short notice). She provided so much valuable information about Vail and answered each question we had. She had an array of properties for us to see and she really tried to align with our criteria requirements. She listened to what we needed, adjusted based on our instant feedback and was extremely cautious following the Covid-19 guidelines. It was a pleasure to work with Ann and we cannot thank her enough for finding us our perfect winter property!
Over a period of two years, we probably looked at 70 or 80 homes. Even though a few worked along the way, my wife and I did not have a joint agreement with 100 percent confidence on any until our ultimate purchase. Ann spent so much time with us and even on short notice, she would drop everything to show a property. The purchase of our property was a funny story. After a 6 week stay in Vail, we were about to head back to Denver to catch our flight. Ann called my wife, and she didnt answer the phone with, "hello", but rather, "dont tell me you have another home....". Ann proceeded to explain that the home in Cordillera just came on the market and she emailed a listing flyer on the property. Many homes look appealing on the flyers, but this one was different because it was only two years old. I asked Ann if she could get an appointment. She said she would and then back peddled because the listing agent had a note that 24 hours was necessary to schedule an appointment. Ann said to give her 5 minutes and she called the listing broker who told her that he will show the house, but he had to leave by 5 pm for his wife's birthday. It was now 3:45 pm and we were still in Vail (with an 11 pm flight out of Denver). An important footnote to this is that the listing agent was John Tyler who also works at Slifer. We rushed to the house, and before we even walked upstairs, my wife looked at me and we both gave a thumbs up to each other (without Ann seeing). I must share this testimonial on Ann with John because John played such an important role in finalizing this transaction. We already had amazing experience with Ann, but then having a second agent from Slifer involved put the stamp on the quality of Slifer agents. We paid asking price (nothing I am bragging about) and signed the contract in the rental car return bus on the way to the airport. John told us that if we pay asking price, he will get the deal finalized. I think everyone was happy. I know we were happy, I think the sellers were happy, and both Ann and John were also happy. You have a great team and when we are ready to trade up, Ann will be our agent. Max Benoliel
You were stable, supportive and diligent. We also appreciate your responsiveness throughout the process. No question, you are a very good realtor and we were lucky to have found you. We also are grateful for your ongoing support and guidance. It is almost as if you are invested in this property with us. How special!!!
She takes the time to learn exactly what her clients wants and then works to find exactly what it is that they are looking for and fits their needs and wants. I know that she certainly took her time to work with us and find a place that was right for us.
Your expertise and guidance have been invaluable and I am so grateful to have you in my corner. I could not have achieved the success of the past few years without you Ann. I also wanted to thank you for finding us the perfect house to start a new chapter of our lives in. Your dedication to helping us find the right home was literally life changing for our situation and I am so grateful to have been able to work with you. Your professionalism and attention to detail are truly unmatched and I am so thankful to have had the opportunity to work with you.
My Slifer agent provided great results.
Promised and delivered. Guided us through the process and helped us and the buyer seal the deal. Thankful for her professionalism and attention to detail. Very pleased and love her Banana bread and her, too!
She was such a joy to work with! I always looked forward to talking to her. Her kind, thoughtful approach made the whole process so easy. She is extremely patience, knowledgeable and professional. We will forever be grateful for her help! My 5 year old refers to her as "our friend Ann".
Ann excels at honesty, integrity, market knowledge, work ethic, communication, attention to detail, great personality, and genuine care for the best interests of all her clients, pretty much all the characteristics you want in a great realtor and person. We highly recommend Ann! Thank you Ann for all you have done for us!
She has gone above and beyond for us time after time to help get our transactions complete in Avon. We couldn’t be happier to have her as our broker and we recommend her to everyone we can.
Her communication was fast and clear, we never had any issue understanding documentation and the process. Ann was always cheerful and helpful. We would give Ann 5 stars, use her again and most of all recommend her to anybody looking to purchase a home in the Vail valley. Thank you Ann for making or dream come true.
We happened to meet her at an open house in Vail Village, and our buyer/agent relationship developed from there. Through her hard work in scouting properties, we were able to find the ideal place for our family. I most appreciated that she had a gentle touch and never pushed us in any direction. She was upfront and honest about everything along the way. Her work did not stop once we closed on the property, and she continues to help us with the property to date. I strongly recommend Ann without any reservations.
After meeting with Ann Foster for an afternoon to look at several properties my wife and I felt that she was on target. We did not find the perfect home / investment that day , but Ann persisted and forwarded numerous listings in the next few weeks. Constant communication. The perfect property popped up and she forwarded it immediately. She went through the property and took additional photos to give us desired information. Long distance negotiations took place and we were under contract without even seeing the property. She directed us to the proper financial and title professionals. Throughout the process Ann Foster kept us informed and one step ahead of the process for a smooth close and transition into our new escape home.. Thank you Ann and the Slifer, Smith and Frampton firm.
Ann's performance as a qualified real estate agent exceeded my expectations. She was over the top with providing listing options and she was extremely flexible in accommodating my time schedules. I found Ann's professionalism and her likableness rewarding attributes. She brings fun to the process and receives my highest recommendation!
From the first time we sat down through the close (which took about 6 months) Ann was super engaged, professional, and thorough - Not to mention extremely patient with us! Everything went so smoothly it's almost hard to believe. Thank you Ann for all of your hard work, it was our pleasure to work with you!
She has extensive local knowledge of the Vail Valley area, and we have benefited greatly from her referrals for contractors, management companies, etc. Our primary residence is in Arizona, and she was incredibly flexible acting as our proxy during our search and throughout our closing and transition of ownership. You would be lucky to have her as your realtor!
She was our “feet on the ground” as we purchased from afar. Her ability to assess properties and give us honest feedback on the suitability for our needs was critical and she was always responsive and in step with our thoughts. We would recommend her highly to those considering a purchase in the Vail, Avon or Edwards areas.
Ann took the time to understand our needs and did not pressure us through the process. Ann thought outside the box and found a property that meet all our needs and wants. When issues in the closing process appeared, she kept a cool head and provided expert advice to navigate past the issues. She knows the area and understands the market. We truly appreciate the due diligence and professionalism Ann provided us.
During that time we looked at dozens of homes. It was not an easy process since we live in the east coast. Ann listened very careful to our necessities and was very careful in selecting which homes to show us. Her patience and friendly personality made us create a bond and today we see her not only as our real state broker but also as a dear friend of hers and her family. She never gave up on us and never pushed us to make the wrong decision. This summer she finally found us the perfect home and she managed the closing process flawlessly. I would recommend Ann to anyone who is looking for a home in the Vail área. She is absolutely the best. Thank you Ann!!!
