When we first met Dan we were familiar with the Colorado mountain lifestyle, having owned property in the Aspen/Snowmass area. However, our introduction to Telluride through Dan was a particularly unique experience given his great love, understanding, and knowledge of the area. Dan’s thoroughness, patience, and experience helped us find the perfect home with the perfect views. During negotiation, he was the consummate professional, reliably providing information but never applying pressure. After closing, we soon realized that Dan’s personal service was only beginning. He helped us complete a number of house-related upgrades and modifications through his extensive network of professional contacts, greatly simplifying our transition into our new home. But more importantly, he has been a constant resource and virtual tour guide for the Telluride area, from recommending hikes, biking routes, and other outdoor activities, to restaurants and picnic spots, to off-the-beaten path drives through the beautiful surrounding countryside to watch the Aspen leaves turn color in the cooling weeks of autumn. Buying property in Telluride has been a special experience for both of us only amplified by our relationship with Dan, and we highly recommend him for anyone interested in owning property in this beautiful part of Colorado. Thank you Dan! Barbara and Dr. David Mack, Houston
My wife and I are from Dublin, OH and spent years considering properties in Montana, Wyoming, Utah and other parts of Colorado. The moment we set foot in Telluride, we fell in love with all that it has to offer. Dan was an instrumental part of our search and success. Dan’s knowledge and experience with all the various home ownership, condo ownership and vacant land opportunities along with his unbiased view of the different areas (town, Mountain Village, Ski Ranches, etc.) provided us with invaluable counsel and knowledge during our search. We changed our minds multiple times during the search and Dan was there every step of the way to educate and not pressure our decision. When we settled on a property we were interested in, Dan’s years of experience with home values and price trends in the area provided us with an insider’s view of the most favorable economics. During negotiations, Dan’s calm demeanor helped everyone get over difficult negotiating points. Without Dan, I don’t think we would have ended up with the Mountain Village dream property we did at the price that we did. If you’re thinking about considering a property in Telluride, Dan should be your first and only call.Pete & Lisa Davies
We purchased our first home in Telluride back in 2014 after looking for the better part of a year. Dan was with us every step of the way. I have often been astounded not only at the level of personal service, but the degree to which Dan has stood up for and protected our interests. In addition to our primary residence, we have since purchased two rental properties with Dan. Clearly, any property in Telluride is gong to be of significant value and a purchase no small affair. The best advice I could give anyone interested in real estate in this truly special part of Colorado is to have Dan Henschel in your corner. If it is just to look, Dan is happy to show you homes and introduce you to the market. He will never pressure you to buy. If you decide to take it further, know that you couldn't possibly be better represented. Dr. Andrew & Sue Baker
We have had multiple properties in Telluride over the past twenty five years and have worked with several realtors during that time. Dan helped us sell our last home this past spring and through his counsel and advice we were able to remain competitive in the market and culminate in a sale.
Our home was in the Ski Ranches which has a great mix of both year around residents and seasonal owners. Dan, living here, understands and represents the advantages of the Ranches to both types of buyers.
We hated to leave the area after all of those years and will miss it, but I don’t think there is a more capable realtor than Dan to represent an owner

Dan worked with us 18 months ago when we first thought about a home in Telluride. He did a great job listening to what we might want, educating us about what options are available in Mountain Village and Telluride and coaching us on what we should (and shouldn’t) think about based on what he knows about the market. He was able to quickly show us properties that highlighted our options with great insights about the pros/cons of each option based on what we were looking for. This helped us get comfortable very quickly on what we wanted to narrow our decision. When we got serious about what we wanted he really helped us validate our idea, negotiate the price we thought was fair and execute the transaction that was a little tricky due to some time pressures last December. Throughout the process I felt like I had a great advocate in our corner helping make things happen while we were 1,600 miles away. Since then he’s been a great resource to help us find the right things to do while we’re here and get connected to Telluride so we feel more like a “resident owner” and not a “first time vacationer”.Craig Heiser, TX
After looking throughout the Mountain West for years in search of the perfect second home, my wife and I settled on Telluride. For us, it is the ideal mix of historic town, skiing, amenities, and access to the most beautiful back county in the lower 48. During the course of house hunting, we had the great luck of being introduced to Dan. At first, I was most impressed with his intimate knowledge of the area. Dan has been a long-time Telluride resident and his understanding of the many nuances of the area proved invaluable. It didn’t take us a particularly long time to find the Ski Ranches home that was right for us. Dan was extremely helpful in guiding us through the closing including coordinating with all of the disparate parties that need to come together to consummate the purchase a home from two time zones away. More impressive, however, has been all of the assistance Dan has provided post-close. He has been invaluable in getting us connected with local service providers from architects to insurance agents. It’s fair to say that Dan has been more helpful to us post-close than pre-close. We are forever grateful that our path led to Telluride and Dan!Tom & Cathy Utgard, OH
We are sending you this letter in hopes that we can somehow put into words how fortunate we feel that we chose you to represent us in our real estate transaction in Telluride. With Brandi and I both being in the real estate business for over 25 years in Texas, and having handled all of our personal real estate transactions ourselves, this transaction in Telluride would be our first that we were not personally in control of all the negotiations and dealings pertaining to our purchase. Wow, were we pleasantly surprised! Little did we know that our minds would be opened to a whole new level of service and expertise that would surpass all our expectations and more. Your knowledge, professionalism and integrity were so much appreciated. It made the buying process so fun and fulfilling to know that we could count on you and trust you 100%. You were our expert and we trusted your suggestions and guidance on our purchase. Now, after the purchase our home, we continue to say your guidance was spot on. We feel you directed us to the best home, and the best value, in Mountain Village. We were humbled by your attention to detail and your consistent commitment to us throughout our transaction, as well as, after. You seem to continue to be our go-to person for all our mountain needs and questions, and we thank you for that. We are happy that we have been confident in referring you to all our friends considering purchasing in Telluride. We look forward to sending you many more clients in the future.
With many thanks,
Dean and Brandi Melton, The Woodlands, TX
We bought our "perfect" Telluride" home with Dan's help. We met Dan at an open house in the town of Telluride-that home was completely wrong for us, but he didn't pressure us at all. He was super nice, very friendly, and listened to what we were looking for in a home in Telluride-then he helped us to find it! Once we found the house, he advised us on the offer and saw it through to the closing. He kept in close communication through the whole process and we have been extremely satisfied with his services as a realtor. But beyond that, he has been extremely helpful about the town of Telluride and making us feel welcome to the area. We highly recommend Dan without reservation.

We approached Dan Henschel when we came to Telluride & Mountain Village for the first time and immediately fell in love with the place.
Dan initially spent time explaining in detail the Real Estate situation in the area before showing us properties which may have suited our needs. He was very patient with us and after several days of inspections we found our dream home.
Throughout and after the purchasing process Dan was always there with help and advice whenever it was needed. With his guidance the purchase completed smoothly and quickly even though we were overseas for most of the time prior to completion.
We would highly recommend Dan Henschel for people who have an interest in purchasing property in this beautiful area.

Whenever anybody visits Telluride for the first time, it is not a question of if they want to buy a place here, but when. That was certainly the case with Judy and me. We first came to Telluride in 2005 for a ski vacation. We decided to start searching for a place and had the good fortune to meet Dan Henschel. He was a consummate professional right from the start. We came very close to pulling the trigger that first visit. It wasn’t in the cards at that time and we decided to invest in a place in Costa Rica instead.
In the years that followed, Dan stayed in contact with us and kept us up to date with what was going on not only in the real estate market, but what was happening in the Town and Mountain Village as well.
We eventually sold our place in Central America and knew it was time to come back to Telluride. Dan was the perfect Real Estate professional. We looked at several places both in town and in the Mountain Village. Dan was extremely helpful, never high pressure. As a result, we found the perfect place in the Mountain Village. After the closing, Dan continued to be a valuable asset in helping us find contractors for remodeling, property managers and just about anything else we needed.
It goes without saying that Dan will be our Realtor in the future whenever we buy or sell here in Telluride. Thanks Dan!
