Getting to Know Sally Shiekman
Fluent in Mountain LanguageThere’s more to being fluent in mountain-speak than simply knowing what it means to have a job with a “powder clause” or spending an afternoon “at the lawn by the tent.” For Sally, it means knowing where to find the best coffee, when to get up early for fresh snow (or when a storm is overrated) and where to go down valley for the best tacos in Colorado. Looking beyond Aspen’s breath taking beauty and its destination appeal, this active and involved mom has found there’s no better place to raise a family than in this close-knit community. She knows firsthand that “family” is spoken here and that it's one of the biggest draws for people who reside here—whether part-time or full-time.
"Through education, training and the last 20 years, I have mastered the art of contract writing, negotiation techniques, and how to be an honest, hard-working, thorough, professional and conscientious Realtor. My market knowledge and ability to think outside-the-box are crucial to my success as a real estate professional."
A Unique VocabularyThis dynamic professional has been building up her vocabulary of mountain language since the age of three, when she donned her first pair of skis and never looked back. Her family had vacationed in the Roaring Fork Valley every winter for as long as she could remember, and even after mastering Aspen’s black diamond runs, Sally dreamed of making the mountains her home. Although this accomplished businesswoman’s gift for language took her all over the world and later prompted her to pursue a foreign language degree, Sally knew that this beautiful locale was where she belonged.
Some of the words that best describe Sally are integrity, tenacity, hard working, ethical, professional, dedicated, reliable, responsible, conscientious, honest, an attention to detail so that nothing falls through the cracks. She has an unending commitment to seeing the project through and getting the job done.

"My wife Annabel and I recently relocated to Aspen.
Before we were ready to buy we needed to rent. Sally Shiekman took the time to understand what we were looking for. Few realtors had interest in helping us find a rental, but Sally found us our first home. When we started looking for a house to buy, we turned to Sally again and received the same professionalism, supportive attitude and results.
Some brokers would have moved on to others who were spending more than we could, or wasted time trying to sell us something we couldn’t afford. Not Sally. She showed us the limited inventory in our price range, and then really went to work. Sally uncovered the perfect home, not yet on the market, a home that met all our needs for space, price, location and timing.
If you want to work with a realtor who really listens and understands your needs, you must call Sally Shiekman."
