We were guided professional through the stressful process of buying a new family home with such ease, that I wholly and fully recommend Team North Star to anyone that are considering looking or exploring the possibility of buying or selling a property.

Tiare is a thorough, conscientious and enjoyable realtor. I felt informed, being new to the area and also, fortunate as Tiare and her whole team were able to provide wide reaching support throughout our home buying journey. She is a good communicator, patient and brought an ease to a process that was initially filled with complications. Thank you Tiare and also a big thanks to the whole Team Northstar!

Monique and her team at the Wells Group of Durango were a pleasure to work with in the purchase of my first home. She was knowledgeable of the area and guided me along the way in my 2+ year search for a property to live where I work and play. The closing was expedited and she thoroughly explained all the steps in the process. This included recommending local trusted professionals for all the testing, inspections, and services required to make my decision easier. I was impressed with the results she obtained with multiple competitive offers and her team’s experience to make my bid stand out from the rest. At the end of closing, Monique and the Wells Group were generous in arranging a moving truck, offering cleaning, and providing a charitable donation to a local nonprofit from the purchase. I plan to use Monique and her team again for any future real estate and I am comforted knowing I can contact them for advice anytime.

One of the benefits of being old — you’ve done a lot of stuff. Including buying homes. In our case, a lot of them. Without question, Monique Flora was the best broker relationship we’ve ever had — from showing, negotiations, the transaction, and her impressive contact and engagement after the deal closed. That’s rare.

Monique is unapologetically passionate about details. She speaks straight, anticipates problems and provides useful counsel. In an industry full of fluff, her dogmatic professionalism is a huge blessing.

Monique helped us navigate selling a home for the first time. We could not have done this without her. Monique is professional, knowledgeable, hardworking, and kind. As a broker, she was always prepared and quick to reply to texts and phone calls. Even though Monique is incredibly busy, she always had time to meet and answer our questions. We are so grateful we chose Monique to sell our beloved home…she helped make a very stressful process a lot less stressful. I highly recommend Monique if you are looking to buy and/or sell in the area!

Monique is an energetic, first-rate professional who is motivated and action-oriented. Her local expertise helped us buy a house in a competitive Durango market. Monique was patient to answer detailed questions and flexible to talk in the early morning or evening beyond business hours. On rare occasions when Monique was unavailable, Team North Star crew Tiare and Kylie seamlessly stepped in with Sunday showings and contract amendments. We highly recommend Monique to help you find your next home. You may also learn something about sustainable agriculture or local mountain lore!

We’d highly (and empathically) recommend Team North Star as we absolutely adored Monique and her team! They made the entire process of selling our home painless, easy, and stress-free. Monique’s attention to detail and fantastic communication made the selling of our first home a very smooth transition. We will definitely be using them in the future for any of our real estate needs – they’ve got clients for life with us!

- The Coopers


I have nothing but high praise for Tiare and her team. She is super-focused on her client’s unique situation and requirements, and has the experience and skillset to get the job done flawlessly. Tiare went above and beyond with support and deep market insight to help me sell my property quickly and at the best possible price.

We went through an exhaustive search for real estate over two summers and Monique Flora and the Wells team couldn’t have been more patient, good-humored and determined to find us the right one. Monique ably guided us through a good closing despite the pandemic slowdown and our worries about whether it would all come together in time. Hats off to Wells team and Monique!

Tiare and Monique have helped me sell 4 properties and buy 1. I have been disappointed with many others. They get the job done period!! You’re my gals for any future deals and Leslie and I love you. Thank you!

Alix Rowland and Tiare at Team North Star are amazing! From pricing, to staging, to assistance with the purchase of our new home site in Durango and the sale of our home – we couldn’t have asked for more. Our home was sold in a very short period of time, with a back-up offer and others still interested! Their command of the local market was more than impressive and their expertise is nothing short of masterful.

I have worked with this team of awesome realtors for a few months now. I am not the easiest person to please and was really picky since this would be my forever home. I had the pleasure to work with both Monique and Alix. Both were very knowledgeable and patient with my needs. Highly recommend this group.
