Winter Park, CO
After living in Winter Park for the past 30 years I can honestly say “I love where I live and work.” I am sure you will too. As the Broker Owner of Coldwell Banker Mountain Properties and as the managing broker, I have an extensive background in real estate and business.
Some of my passions are real estate development, my wonderful family, commercial real estate, golf which is a never ending struggle, contracts, skiing on a great powder day, resort property sales, management and of course my buddy Max the most wonderful golden retriever ever.
I work with my business partner Dennis Saffell and together we are Saffell & Huster. We have achieved many awards through the years with Coldwell Banker but most importantly in 2015 we were recipients of the Presidents Circle Award which is the top 2% of agents for Coldwell Banker throughout the world.
My goal is to make the real estate buying and selling experience effective, fun and easy. I stand ready to share my experience and knowledge of Winter Park and Grand County.

My wife and I spent a Sunday afternoon in October looking at homes in Winter Park with Stuart Huster. We walked into the Coldwell office unannounced and he generously showed us around until dark. He had no misgivings about the fact that we were “just looking.” We were pleased with what we saw, and returned for 5 days in December, eventually buying a second home in Fraser. Stuart again gave generously of his time and engineered a price and complicated lease-back arrangement that was satisfactory to us and the seller. Because we live in Kentucky, we did all the subsequent Q and A’s, legal work, insurance work, inspections, and closing – all electronically through your office at Coldwell Banker.
The staff was extraordinarily helpful, and whenever there was a legal question, insurance question, title or homeowner’s insurance question, the CB staff promptly answered my calls undirected me to the appropriate resources. Buying a home is an inherently stressful project. I am grateful to Stuart and your staff for making the process as stress free as possible. Thanks again.
It was a pleasure working with Stuart and Samantha as we purchased our dream home in Winter Park. Stuart worked diligently with us to understand a wide range of options, leading to us finding a fabulous home. Samantha made the transaction smooth and easy, and the closing went flawlessly. Thank you for everything you did to make this a wonderful experience!
Our family has worked with Mr. Huster for many years. He has helped us sell 4 different properties in the last several years. Mr. Huster knows the Granby/Winter Park market well. He has been honest and insightful with regard to assessing and timing the market. He has been flexible and creative with regard to advise and recommendations. He is professional, personable and efficient. We have found him easy to work with and have recommended him to others. I would definitely use him again and recommend him to others.
I wanted to take some time to let you know how great you were with us on the sale of the Cabin, your knowledge, friendly approach was over the top in helping us to decide on buying your property. The time you spent with us and going through all the doc’s with the golf course and HOA’s and even taking us over to the management office was extra special, you are from the old school of sales, taking care of the customer, again thanks.
From the beginning, my brothers and I struggled finding the right “Broker” with our best interests in mind. You and Coldwell Banker not only took into consideration our emotional attachment, that accompanies a property that has been in a family for over 40 years, but took the time to understand who you were representing. Stu from the moment you took the listing, we new we had a winner. You gave us a realistic look into the market providing key professional advice, leaving us with the education to make the best decision. You were able to bring perspective buyers to the table faster than any other broker had in the past. It’s fair to say, you accomplished in 3 months what other’s could not do in two years. Your professionalism, honesty, and representation was outstanding. Thank you and Coldwell Banker for making the sale of our family condo and easy profitable transaction.
I just wanted to share with you how much Dave and I enjoyed working with you when we purchased our mountain town home in Rendezvous. From our first conversation regarding wants, needs and budget to the day we closed you were the consummate professional. It was great to work with someone who knows the area and the values so well. We are thrilled with our place and look forward to using it for many years. If and when we decide to upgrade you will be the one we call!
I recently purchased a home in the Winter Park area and had the pleasure of working with Stuart Huster as the transaction broker. The transaction was completed in a very short time (14 days from initial offer to closing) and the compressed timeline put Stu and his team to the test. Thankfully they were more than up for the challenge and were instrumental in timely coordinating the home inspection and obtaining disclosures, electric bills, well permits and other documentation, permitting the transaction to close on time. I have gone through perhaps 10 real estate transactions in the past, and I can confidently say Stu and his team were the best of any real estate professional I have worked with. In my experience, Stu is highly competent and incredibly personable; I would not hesitate to work with him again.
Angel Fire, NM
I had the privilege of growing up in the mountains of Northern New Mexico. My family moved to Angel Fire from Iowa when I was 10 and and started a log home company and construction company. Being around my family's business sparked a love of real estate.
I currently split my time between Angel Fire and Taos. I have so much love for the area and diversity in real estate that it offers, that I decided to make it my career.
Whether buying or selling, I am passionate about helping people find their perfect fit!
