Tony Litschewski has been a real estate broker since 1999 and a real estate investor since 1989. Out of over 41,000 licensed real estate brokers in Colorado, Tony is one of only 97 with the Master Certified Negotiation Expert designation and one of only two practicing on the western slope with this credential.

Tony would appreciate the opportunity to be a valuable resource for you and all your real estate needs and questions.
We purchased our first single family rental property from Tony Litschewski, who also served as the real estate agent. He was extremely accommodating and provided us with abundant guidance and support throughout the process. For example, he shared with us many tips and resources to help make our first rental property a positive experience in terms of managing tenants. We live in Texas and, since this property was in Colorado, Tony provided us with specific requirements unique to this state and county. Our adult son lives in Montrose and is assisting us with property management matters associated with this property. Consequently, we plan to purchase additional rental properties in the Montrose, Colorado area and will definitely use Tony as our real estate agent on any future purchases.
Mr. Litschewski was a great choice for me and my family. Buying my first home was scary, and he helped by explaining everything thoroughly and making sure I understood. He is very professional and gets things done. He made my home buying experience non-stressful, and enjoyable. It was a pleasure working with Tony. I would definitely recommend him to anyone!
Attention to detail was very important to us and Tony provided this from beginning to final completion of the process and closing. Explanation of all terms and the necessary forms for proper completion were explained in detail. The photography process that Tony uses was instrumental in insuring the successful bid and closing of our property. Tony’s expertise was evident from the beginning of the listing to the final closing process at the title company. We would highly recommend Tony for anyone starting a sale or buy process in Ouray county Colorado.
We chose Tony as our realtor because of the great feedback we received from his previous clients. We have bought and sold several homes and Tony is by far the most diligent, honest, and knowledgeable realtor we have ever worked with. Tony’s patience and dedication to helping us find exactly what we needed led to the purchase of the perfect lot to build our dream home. We are so thrilled we met Tony and recommend him to anyone in the area. Thanks Tony!
Review on Zillow July 2020 “Tony is the best! He not only sold our home, he also took incredible photos of our house. Tony is Very thorough and explains everything in detail. He is a Great communicator and has a very high level of integrity and honesty ! We definitely recommend Tony to anyone looking for a realtor that goes above and beyond.”
“Tony was absolutely great on helping us sell our house! His photography skills are absolutely impressive. This helped us to get potential buyers to view our home online, which translated into showings. An offer was made sight unseen as his pictures, as well as a 3D image gave the buyers a true picture of our house. When they came to see it before closing, they said it was just like the pictures showed. Throughout the entire process, Tony kept in touch with us. During the closing, he let us know what we needed to do on our end, which helped to make the closing go smoothly. Any questions we had for him, were always answered promptly, usually within 5 minutes. He was thorough and meticulous throughout the entire process. Couldn’t have asked for a better realtor, would highly recommend him to others.”
Review on Zillow 8/1/2019 “Tony has a fantastic approach to real estate sales. Very personal, patient and understanding of what my wife and I were looking for and what was available in the area. He was extremely knowledgeable on the community and was able to pass along valuable information so that we could make a truly informed decision. He knew what was of potential value and what was over valued. His negotiation skills were superb as we navigated a challenging sale for our piece of property with an out of state seller. We too were from out of state and hoping to get into contract before our departure home. Unfortunately that wasn’t able to occur, but Tony always went the extra mile for us and we were in contract within the next week. Tony was there to guide us through the whole process of studies for septic, surveys, utility providers, HOA and Architectural Guidelines. With both the seller and the buyer out of state, things had to be completed with electronic reviews and signatures. Tony made sure we new where we were in the process, what was coming next, who was responsible for what, and what was expected of us. What a great experience!”
“Tony listed, marketed and sold our townhouse. From the beginning to end, the relationship with Tony was all that a seller could ever want. He was without any shadow of a doubt the perfect realtor. Tony exhibited and exercised the highest ethical standards we have ever seen in the 55 years I have been buying and selling homes. In addition, the explanations of everything, the first-rate marketing of our home, the deadline monitoring for us, the attention to detail, the interactions with the buyer’s agent and the title company, the communication with us, the quality of the Closing—all of it, the entire process was handled and expedited by Tony with the highest degree of professionalism. If we ever buy or sell another property in Tony’s real estate sales coverage area, we absolutely wouldn’t dream of using any other realtor. Thank you Tony for a job well done!” – review on Zillow, October 2018
“Tony is by far the best Real Estate Agent we have used in the last 20 years (minus my mother-in-law, of course ). We are thorough researchers, know what we want, research all listings in the area – so not to waste anyone’s time (our agent, the home-seller, the listing agent, etc) – and only look to schedule viewings of those we deem a likely purchase-target of ours. But Tony was always available and willing to drop his own personal schedule to help us. Tony is very attuned to all current listings and knows volumes about the area! We could not have selected a better agent to have helped us. In the last 20 years we have used 6 different agents and walked away from each experience reeling of the poor performance of our agent. Tony reinstated our appreciation for those RE’s that really do care and do take the time to really serve their clients. Tony truly is a great Agent!”
“Tony facilitated a worry-free and hassle-free sale of my property from listing through closing. He priced it just-right for a quick full price offer. His punctuality, attentiveness to detail, responsiveness to calls, and professionalism throughout every step of the process, including his description, professional photos and 3-D image of the property led to a completely satisfying experience.”
“Tony is the ultimate professional realtor. We had been looking for a new home for 2 years in both California and Colorado and had met multiple agents along the way. Tony was the best of them all. He is friendly, courteous, very knowledgeable, prompt in responding to any questions, and always available. He has over 30 years of real estate experience and it shows. Tony paid amazing attention to detail, anticipated any potential complications, had an excellent ability to educate us through the process with phone reminders of all important dates and deadlines, and he always offered a calm, competent reassurance whenever we got anxious about any surprises. He was a skilled negotiator for us and made sure we had highly qualified, knowledgeable locals working for us on the inspection. He also made sure the transactions were as financially prudent as possible, which was much appreciated. He never pushed us into a sale and always offered alternative options, and he ran through the pros and cons of all potential deals so we felt comfortable with our decisions. Tony is fair, works hard for you, is financially prudent, locally knowledgeable, and extremely good at what he does. We can not recommend him enough if you are looking to buy in the Ridgway area.”
“Extremely thorough, knowledgeable, and experienced. Very responsive and truly advocates for the buyer as if it were his own money on the line. Tony helped us navigate a land purchase and provided great advice throughout the entire process.”
“As a first time home buyer, Tony made sure I was comfortable with the searching and purchasing process for my home. He did a great job of finding a home that fit my needs and budget. I will use Tony’s services again when I purchase my next home.”
“Tony is a great realtor to work with for any type of real estate transaction. He is very detail oriented and will give you frequent updates and guidance throughout the process. He is very professional and a pleasure to work with. I will use him for all of my future transactions. I highly recommend him.”
“Tony is very knowledgeable in the biz. I learned everything I needed to know about buying. He educated me at every step, and explained the details, clearly. Every document was reviewed, perfect, and on-time. He even educated the seller’s broker, and kept them on schedule too. Speedy responses on everything, and great negotiator. He always had my bottom dollar as his over-arching goal. I would recommend Tony to any buyer.”
“I have been using Tony’s real-estate services for years now. He is very good realtor, he listens and respects his customers. He finds exactly what you’re looking for as a buyer or a seller. After I started working with Tony, I stopped looking for “another” real-estate agent. He creates business relationships and keeps his promises. I would definitely recommend Tony if you are looking to sell or buy a house.”
“I will definitely recommend Tony if you are looking for a condo or house. He was able to help me find a condo really fast. He knew what my needs and wants were along with my price point and I got exactly what I was looking for. The professionals he associated me with during the sale were also very quick and did what they said they would do-to the “T”. After the sale he has also assisted me with questions in regard to property value…etc.”
“I know very little about real estate and having Tony help with the process was incredible. He knows the market, was great with help about what needed to be perfected to increase the value of the home and made the process very easy. If I ever need real estate help, he will be the one person I reach out to.”
“Tony is an excellent realtor. He is honest, reliable and timely. We had a tight budget to work with, and he gave us great advice and information on the properties that we saw; both what made them good, and what issues would be when we would try to sell it in the future. He always follows up via email or phone call promptly and consistently reached out to the listing brokers to try to get our questions answered. He was able to get us in to view properties quickly when, or in some cases before, they came on the market, which was critical with our budget. He is extremely knowledgeable about the values of homes in the area, and was not hesitant to share when he felt a property was over-valued by the listing broker. We worked with him for over a year to find the right home, and Tony was excellent in not pressuring us into a home that wasn’t the right fit for us. He worked extremely hard for us during that time period; we put in four offers on properties, and toured at least three times that many, and contacted agents on at least another dozen properties they were selling as well. While looking for properties we interacted with multiple other listing brokers. One of those listing brokers did not have accurate photographs of the property, (i.e. using photos of nearby properties instead of the property they were actually selling), another would simply ignore our questions and never reply back, and yet another listing broker had the property’s square footage mislabeled by almost a factor of two. While I’m sure that there are many other good brokers besides Tony, I would strongly, strongly recommend working with him, we feel that he is by far the best realtor in the area. We’ve already recommended him to two of our friends!”
“The great service started with the excellent 3D virtual tour which is not often found in this area. He is very knowledgeable about housing prices and values in our area and was helpful in suggesting an attractive and realistic price. He was there with us every step of the way and was very meticulous and professional throughout the selling process. He fully explained all of the extensive paperwork required to close the sale. We would recommend Tony to anyone looking to sell or buy a home.”
