Consistently exceeding his clients’ expectations for over 22 years, Rick Fusting has earned a reputation as a highly competent and insightful advisor for the most sophisticated buyers and sellers. Affiliated with the Sotheby’s International Realty® network for longer than any other Telluride broker, Rick intimately understands the power of the brand’s global presence and the strength of the network’s elite cadre of real estate professionals. He listens carefully to his clients’ wants and needs and then expertly puts his in-depth market expertise and noted negotiating skills to work for his clients. Rick has matchless motivation and focus, and his commitment to personal service has garnered a loyal client base.
Rick measures his own success by the success of his clients. His top priority is not stacking up numbers of properties sold, but rather, to Rick, the most important performance indicator is his consistency in finding his clients the right properties for the right price and selling his listings for prices that best benefit his sellers.
Rick’s dedication to his clients parallels his commitment to his community. He has worked with the local mentoring program, One to One, for 15 years, serving on the Board of Directors for the last 8 with a term as President for 3 of those years. His colleagues recognized his valuable community efforts by awarding him the designation of Community Realtor of the Year in 2008.
Rick is passionate about living in the beautiful San Juan Mountains, where he is raising two young boys along with his wife, Cindy. He enjoys opening up new lifestyle opportunities for his clients so that they might fall as deeply in love with Telluride as he is himself.
