Ralph Lechner Realtor
Ralph's Personal Mission
I was lucky to be born into a Real Estate active family. My Father, Fred was a Real Estate Broker in Illinois in the 1960's. We moved to Colorado Springs in the early 1970's. I bought my first house at age 16, and had my Real Estate license by my Senior year of High School. I've been a member of the Pikes Peak Association of Realtors since 1979. Whew time flies! I live downtown currently and love the area. I have four children and now am a proud Grandfather to 10! I am lucky enough that that some of my children have already purchased homes. In my off hours I enjoy playing pickleball and I shoot pool in league.
I joined RE/MAX in 1988. I am also an avid Real Estate investor. I currently own several multi-family and single family homes in Colorado Springs in addition to the property I call home. I hold several designations, GRI (Graduate Real Estate Institute), CRS (Certified Residential Specialist), RE/MAX Hall of Fame Member, and I've received the RE/MAX Lifetime Achievement Award.

Shaunee Boyd Realtor, Property Manager, Office Manager
I've been in the Colorado Springs Real Estate market since 2005. Ralph and I formed Team Lechner in 2008. I started Corona Property Management in 2009 alongside my team work with Ralph in listings and working closely with buyers.
My specialties are the central downtown area, client contact, keeping in touch with past clients, marketing, and building Team Lechner. I live in the central downtown residential area in a great Victorian home built in 1896. I built a cottage above my garage for my Mother when she moved here from Las Vegas in 2013.
My hobbies and loves are my family, my dogs, my Real Estate team, and my home. I love to garden, shoot pool in league, camp, and be active in our community. I started to RV all over Colorado in the last few years and I adore bringing friends and family with. I enjoy taking my fur kiddos to our many dog parks in Colorado Springs and I like that our area is so very dog friendly!
My Real Estate goals are alongside Ralph's and that has made us a great team in a very competitive market. Colorado Springs is in the top 10 growing markets in the United States and we are here to make and keep satisfied clients. We go the extra mile in communication and ongoing correspondence with our clients. I believe that continued contact for birthdays, anniversaries, Home sale or Home bought anniversaries, and just to say Hi! are the greatest on going contact we could have with our wonderful clients.
Shannon Stokes Transaction Coordinator, Administrative Assistant
I've been in and around Real Estate for over 20 years. I have been a Broker Assistant in Florida and when I moved to Colorado I started as a transaction coordinator and assistant for a commercial and residential Realtor. I then changed offices and worked on a head Broker/Owner team for a short period of time. When I left that position I found Ralph and Shaunee back at the original RE/MAX office I had started in. I've been with Team Lechner since 2014 and we have made a spectacular team that is complimentary of one another's skill sets.
I also have a degree in Interior Design and am qualified in many areas of building plans, assisting in Home Staging, color and finish selections, and overall space planning. I enjoy spending time around the housing market in all aspects.
I moved to Colorado Springs in 2008 and live centrally in the downtown area as well. I have a wonderful Labrador and just welcomed my first nephew into the world! I enjoy all things HOUSE! My brother and his fiance live very close by and moved here from Chicago a couple of years after my move. I love having family here.
As a transaction coordinator I handle all things related to the contract to buy as well as listing contracts and all disclosures. I correspond with title companies, lenders, and agents we work with in transactions. I am here to assist and help with any issues or questions that come up in regard to your Real Estate transaction.
