Ken Van Skiver

 Broker Associate  
Born and raised in Upstate NY where Ken studied Engineering at RIT then worked for Xerox for 17 years including 9 years in Southern California (LA).

Escaped to Telluride in 1988 and began my real estate career selling resort properties and ranches.  Moved to Delta County in 2000 and started horse-ranching while continuing my Real Estate career in residential, farm/ranch and commercial properties. 

Obtained a Mortgage Broker License in 2009 to broaden my experience with home purchase and refi loans.
Recently made the "final" move to Cobble Creek Golf Course in Montrose and joined Coldwell Banker to compliment my new direction for success. 

Married to Kay Magruder, RDH. Enjoy endless outdoor activities, year-round, in Western Colorado.


December 2020 - Ken Van Skiver did an excellent job of marketing and selling our house in The Bridges Golf Community.  Because we had already moved out of state, there was a multitude of issues that had to be handled locally that Ken took care of for us, which required many extra trips to the property and coordination with vendors and contractors.  He definitely went beyond the call of duty and was totally dependable and professional.

Ken sold our house last fall, 2019. While many homes in our area had been on the market for many months ours sold in 5 weeks. We feel this happened due to Ken’s expertise in every aspect of advising us and ensuring our property was ready for showing and fairly priced. As we were out of the country when the offer was made, Ken took the lead and handled all aspects of the sale including arranging the inspection repairs. Ken made us feel like more than just another client and more like he was our personal real estate agent.  We would highly recommend Ken for all your real estate needs.

Ken was ableto help me get through the selling process of my home even with the hurtle of having a renter during some of the timeframe. His suggestions for getting the home ready was very valuable. He also became someone I could 'bounce' things off of, as for the first time, I was alone in this process and I felt comfort in his advice and support.

"We sure appreciate what a super Realtor you have been and are. It really has put back my faith in people.  Sure would like to keep in touch after Lot 10 sells; I would love to see how things progress for the new owners. It truly has been a pleasure working with you. Send me some business cards!"

Leda Baca - Whitewater, CO

"Several of the "how to" books my husband and I read suggested that we interview realtors before house shopping; we did, and Ken Van Skiver stood out as someone who was honest, patient and friendly. Because of these characteristics, we chose him for our Realtor and were never disappointed! Throughout the buying process Ken explained confusing real estate jargon, patiently answered all of our questions and did his best to work around our busy schedules. He was also conscientious about keeping in contact with us, even when we had difficulty returning his messages in a timely manner. Without any reservations, I will recommend Ken to others who are embarking on the home-buying or selling journey." 

Alex and Amy Shelley - Montrose, CO

"Ken - We really enjoyed working with you to find our first home! You really understood what we were (and weren't) looking for. Not only did you make sure that we were able to look at every house we inquired about, you did so on crutches, going the extra mile in our eyes.
Thanks for not being pushy and for focusing on our wants and needs above all else.

We'll recommend you to all of our friends!"

The Swaims - Montrose, CO

“Ken has been nothing but positive, helpful, accommodating and honest. Over the past 2.5 years we've looked at property from Nebraska to New Mexico and have dealt with enough real estate people to realize that Ken is not your typical Realtor.....with his assistance we have found the perfect place for us in Montrose. We appreciate Ken's professionalism and work ethic….."

We completed our second home purchase with Ken in May of this year. This home was a rental purchase and his knowledge of the community and insight was most helpful. He was a source of very helpful advice and easy to work with. If we do any other transactions in the Montrose area, Ken will be our first call.
