★★★★★

Absolutely top notch service. Tate bent over backwards to answer our many, many questions and to arrange viewings of properties to accommodate our schedules. He also made sure our choices were carefully documented and kept us up to date on necessary changes or modifications that inevitably arose. Tate was our go to person and we felt very comfortable and knew we could trust Tate. Attention to detail was terrific. A superb customer service experience!

★★★★★

We worked with Tate on the Rivers Edge Condominium project. From the outset, you could tell that Tate was knowledgeable, straight-forward and easy to work with. His attention to the needs of the customer impressed us early and on and it didn’t wane throughout the project nor after the project closed, where his still answered questions. In my estimation, Tate is professional, responsive and knowledgeable; all qualities I expect in a broker.

★★★★★

Tate is all-around awesome! He is friendly, positive, helpful, patient and extremely knowledgeable! He worked with us during all aspects of our condo building/buying process. He has great communication skills and was always willing to answer any questions or meet us for a last minute design/selection consultation. He was a joy to work with and we highly recommend him!

★★★★★

As an owner/resident of the new Rivers Edge Condo’s in Silverthorne, Tate Santee, of Coldwell Banker and his team, provided an amazing level of value to the developer and us during our purchase, and construction & design of our condo purchase. Tate’s knowledge of Silverthorne, together with a friendly and easy work attitude, his willingness to meet and discuss construction progress, his attention to details and our desires, flexibility when working through finish selections and construction changes, made our real estate move a pleasure. Tate is now, someone, we can call a friend.

★★★★★

Tate was wonderful to work with, very detailed with his information sharing, helpful whenever questions arose, and followed-through whenever there was anything hint that needed to be addressed. We appreciated Tate’s attention to detail and in addressing any question be that we had during the building and closing process. Thank you Tate!

★★★★★

We worked with Tate on the purchase of our new vacation condo in Silverthorne at the Rivers Edge project. While he was the broker for the builder/seller, his service and professionalism was outstanding and he was an invaluable resource for us. Since we did not use a buyer’s broker, he was instrumental in keeping us informed during a very long construction process, as the builder’s communications were infrequent and often vague. He went above and beyond in every respect, meeting with us at least half a dozen times throughout the process of making selections, providing tours of units that the builder had recently completed, and providing excellent advice that made the process enjoyable. Tate has a very deep understanding of the Summit County market. But most importantly, he truly was a pleasure to work with and we recommend him highly.

Tate was the broker for the purchase of our River’s Edge condo in Silverthorne. When we began our journey with Tate, the groundbreaking had just begun. During our year+ relationship with Tate, most of communication was done remotely via email as we live in New Hampshire. When we did come out to visit the project, Tate was always willing to take us to the construction and give us an on-site tour and progress report. Our client/broker relationship involved anything related to the construction project including deposits, signing documents, enhancement requests and interior changes to the unit, progress reports, and even drone flyovers of the building. He was clear and decisive prior to and during closing, and the process went very smoothly because of his communication. He is very responsive and organized, and he was very instrumental in ‘smoothing the road’ and always did his utmost to get us answers and solutions. Not only is he a very skilled professional, but also an extremely nice person with a highest ethical standards – someone you can really trust and whom the buyers and prospects can trust. As a retired Project Manager, I recognize Tate’s organizational and communication skills as key to his continued success. You would be fortunate to obtain Tate’s services.

We were the purchasers of a Condo at Rivers Edge in Silverthorne. Tate was the seller’s broker, I interfaced directly with him as we did not use a broker on our end . He was always professional during the long construction process. Tate did his best to ensure our requests were passed on the the developer/builder. We were very pleased in the end product. One nice thing Tate did was post YouTube drone videos of the buildings progress every few months. I really appreciated that as we lived 2000 miles away and had limited visits during the construction. I would not hesitate to use Tate as my broker if we decide to sell or purchase in the area.

★★★★★

We are pleased to write this reference for Tate. We worked very closely with him over a period of nearly two years as our condo was being conceived and built in Silverthorne. Tate is a solid professional and is hugely responsive. I can’t think of a single time that we did not hear back immediately even if it was to get “I will find the answer by tomorrow”. He has a huge capacity to juggle a million requests and individual specifications as even things we thought he forgot ended up being just what we wanted. The project (and our condo) were significantly behind schedule and delivery and this is where Tate really shines. He has a way of explaining the situation and readjusting expectations that soothes an angry buyer. Plus he is very likable. We often relied on him for local recommendations and knowledge which he was very happy to give. Tate is a real pro and we have been around enough and bought enough real estate to know the difference. He has integrity in what he commits to and the organizational skills and knowledge to pull it off. Oh and before I forget he was a terrific go between relative to the buyers and developer which on this project makes him a candidate for the State Department. Top notch.

I am writing to commend the extraordinary performance of Tate Santee throughout the purchase and construction of our condominium at Rivers Edge. We first encountered Tate in early 2016 as we contemplated the purchase of our condo shortly after groundbreaking. Tate proved to be an excellent salesman, helping us envision the future of our building by coordinating multiple visits to similar construction throughout the county and patiently working with us through our unusually long list of addendums to the contract. We also came to find that Tate was highly available and responsive in replying to calls and e-mails from both ourselves and our realtor. Subsequently, Tate found himself in the unenviable position of having to manage relationships with 29 unhappy clients as construction proceeded through an endless series of delays over the next two years. Despite the pressure this undoubtedly placed upon Tate, he was unfailingly pleasant in addressing our queries about the status of the project and faithful in updating us as information became available. In several instances, we discovered discrepancies from the plan and/or contract in the actual construction, and Tate was extraordinarily effective in representing our interests to the builder to ensure these errors were rectified or in helping to reach acceptable compromises. At the same time, Tate was consistently discreet and professional in representing the builder, despite Tate’s being the focal point for our frustration with the builder – a tricky balancing act indeed. Tate’s pleasant demeanor, effective advocacy and honest candor were instrumental in preventing us from walking away from the project altogether on several occasions. In short, Tate earned the respect and admiration of all of the residents at Rivers Edge with whom we have spoken. It is not an exaggeration to say that many of us will regard Tate as a lifelong friend as a result of his shepherding us through a frustrating building process. We have no reservations whatsoever in recommending you engage Tate for your future project.

★★★★★

We first met Tate before ground had been broken all the way through to closing on our new vacation condo. Given we are not locals, he became a trusted resource to help us through everything from local issues impacting the process to recommending a great brewery or breakfast place in town. He was accessible, responsive and knowledgeable – making our experience as smooth as possible to becoming very happy owners today. Thanks!

★★★★★

Tate was amazing to work with during every phase of our condo purchase and build out! Professional, organized, responsive, and always willing to go the extra step to help us, be it with paperwork or contracting needs. Honestly, he did more than any realtor has ever done for us before and we have been through 5 property sales and purchases in the past 10 years. He was an indispensable part of our condo’s development team, and I’m not exaggerating when I say the best part too. I wouldn’t hesitate to work with Tate for additional real estate and development needs in Summit County.

★★★★★

Tate was instrumental in keeping us informed of the progress of the new construction project in which we purchased our condo. He was always responsive to our phone calls and was a great go-between with the developer.

★★★★★

My husband and I worked with Tate throughout the process of building our condo in Silverthorne and just had a great experience. Tate was super responsive, always had a positive, friendly attitude, super helpful in guiding our finish selections – and super committed to getting them in right (we had a few special asks here and there). In addition, Tate’s knowledge of the Silverthorne area, particularly of new developments, made him more than “just a realtor” or project manager – he was (and is) really an asset to us in terms of understanding the local landscape and our investment. Overall, Tate was highly attentive to our needs and we would recommend him to friends and family without hesitation.

★★★★★

We bought a condo at River’s Edge in Silverthorne and Tate was our primary contact. Working with Tate was a great experience as he has a positive attitude and is really easy to work with. He helped us pick out all of our finishes and met us at the property multiple times to make sure we got everything done right! We found out that Tate has lived in the area for a long time and he is very knowledgeable about the area and developments. Tate was always there for us when we needed help and I would highly recommend him to anyone looking for real estate opportunities in Summit County!

★★★★★

Being second home buyer from out of area having someone we could rely on was essential. We found Tate timely and responsive to our questions and concerns. He was thorough and attentive to not only what we asked but also advised as to what we needed to know but did not ask. During amenities selection his counsel.was invaluable providing options but also why selection should be considered or not. We found his recommendation for items such as window coverings storage units very helpful and of comparable integrity. And, lastly, during move in phase he was there to open unit for service providers though we were not there. We enthusiastically recommend him for your consideration!
