Lee Ann was a pleasure to work with on the purchase of our condo in Ridgway.  We found her to be friendly and very easy to work with.  She was knowledgeable about Ouray County and the surrounding areas.  Our closing went smoothly.  I would recommend her services to any prospective buyer or seller in the area.

Brent Anderson, Ridgway Landowner

Ouray is a small place where big dreams can come true. And it was Lee Ann Parden that helped us realize our dream. 
We’d been looking for a second home in Durango, but a spontaneous, fateful Saturday afternoon drive lead us into Ouray, and by chance and good fortune, we met Lee Ann. She was kind enough to drop her personal plans that day to drive us around and show us a few homes she thought might suite our needs. We were quite smitten with the gorgeous village and the kindness of its people. 
We are not permanent residents of Colorado. So over the course of a few months, she was tireless without the certainty of commitment or benefit from us. She was sincere in wanting to help us achieve our goal, if it was possible. She diligently paid attention to our every concern, question and request that we made. Never, did she make us feel rushed, burdened with sales pressure, or ill at ease over such a big decision. Her patience, sense of humor, joy for the nature of Ouray and genuine ease of personality helped us conclude that following our dream was in fact fated with her abundant knowledge of real estate the area, all of the county natural resources and her simple kindness. 
The purchase of our second home is one of the biggest pleasures of our life, but also knowing that we have Lee Ann as a local resource and true friend made our decision complete. We couldn’t be happier.

While vacationing in Ouray, my husband and I found the perfect home. Lee Ann was exceptional in helping us every step of the way, especially with our limited timeframe in town. We researched other homes and decided to purchase one after seeing several. LeeAnn worked promptly with other realtors to get us into see homes in our limited time frame. She helped us with our offer, inspection, and the many aspects of buying a home while we were out of state. She is truly a kind professional that went above and beyond to make our home buying experience enjoyable.  I highly recommend LeeAnn and Wild West Realty, LLC for all your real estate needs!

Tim and Jenny Ramsey, Ouray Landowner

We have had the pleasure of Lee Ann’s help on two successful real estate transactions on the western slope.  The first was a home sale in Montrose in 2019.  Lee Ann was a fantastic resource as we prepared the property to be listed.  Once listed, she had us under contract in about a week.  The second transaction was a home purchase in Ouray.  It was a unique situation in a couple respects.  Our credit was not in great shape, so we needed to rent the property for a period of time in order to get our scores back into a usable range.  Instead of blowing us off since we were a long shot, Lee Ann took the opposite approach.  She helped us work out a very creative deal with the owners that would give us the needed time to get our finances in order.  15 months later we closed on our dream home.  We are so thankful to have had Lee Ann guiding the process.  She is a true professional, and a wonderful human being to boot.
