With over 80 years of combined experience in Denver’s luxury real estate market, the Schossow Group at Compass is a diverse team of veteran experts who share a passion for Denver’s luxury real estate and all that Colorado has to offer.
The namesake for the Schossow Group, Dale, has seen it all in his 40+ years of experience: interest rates that surpassed 18% (process that one for a minute), the rise of the “dotcom” era, the impacts of 9/11 and a country at war, plenty of market fluctuations and everything in between. This year is certainly no exception, bringing with it a global pandemic, national disasters, civil unrest, economic stress, and a contentious election season.
However, the local real estate market has thrived since the summer as Colorado communities – including BackCountry – continue to be highly desired destinations for home buyers with the average price for a single-family detached home in Denver Metro hitting a record-breaking $606,330 in August. Total sales volume is up 3% compared to 2019 at over $20 billion.
In order to provide maximum benefit in guiding clients through the ever-changing market, Dale hand-selected and built a team of professionals who complement one another’s strengths and talents. “My goal in building the Schossow Group was to create a powerhouse team that together offer a superior level of service, a diverse span of experience, passion for Denver’s luxury market and ultimately successful results for our buyers and sellers. I am incredibly honored to work alongside real estate experts who demonstrate integrity and grit in all they do.”
The timing has worked out well. In conjunction with the team’s formation, the Schossow Group made a big move to Compass, the fastest-growing real estate company in the nation, who locally recently surpassed LIV Sotheby’s as the number one brokerage in Denver in both market share and sales volume year to date. Their ascent is thanks in part to the Schossow Group who quickly proved to be one of the company’s top-producing teams. Geoff and Kendall — two recent clients — say, “Working with the Schossow Group is like working with a five-star concierge service where all of a client’s attendant needs are met. They are simply the best.”
“We are a true full-service real estate team,” says Nick Schossow, “meaning that we don’t just have agents but also a dedicated transaction coordinator and full-time marketing professional on our team who work for our clients so that we can be high-touch, efficient and transparent from our first conversation with a client, through the listing of their home and all the way to closing day and after.”
While the team can be found representing clients all over the Denver metro area, they specialize in the markets of the places they live including BackCountry, the greater Highlands Ranch area, The Club at Ravenna, Castle Pines, Columbine, and Littleton.
“We place ultimate value on integrity, honesty, transparency, and market knowledge,” says April Stahl. “The strengths of our team allow us to put the needs of those we represent above all else. It’s that simple.”
In light of the turbulence of 2020, the Schossow Group remains committed to the best interest of its clients. “We’ll be there for our clients and we will work our absolute hardest to best serve them,” says Dale. “We always have – and we always will. There’s a lot to look forward to.”
