"A Smooth Process"

We had moved to Colorado for a new job. We had been renting for a few years before we were ready to purchase a home.

Carol walked us through each step of the home buying process, from searching for a home, to getting prequalified, to making a competitive offer and going under contract. Buying a home can be stressful and Carol was able to answer all of our questions through each step of the process. We made it to the closing table and now our family has a place to call HOME!

Thank you for helping us through
this process Carol.

"I happen to KNOW a great realtor"

Carol my friend and realtor, transformed my home into a model-home & the photos were amazing. I had multiple showings and got an offer that was above list price. It was under contract so quickly that I was able to purchase a brand new home and pick out many features at the design center. If you are Selling or Buying, I would highly recommend using Carol.

"The BEST and highly RECOMMENDED"

We were finally ready to sell our family home after 15 years and Carol knew exactly how to help us. From pricing our home so that we had lots of interest, to marketing and staging, she had each step covered.

She had vendors that she referred us to when we had to get items repaired after the inspection. We closed on the sale of our home and went under contract on a new home that was under construction. There were many delays in getting our new home to completion, but Carol was by our side each step of the way. We would defiantly recommend Carol to anyone looking to Sell or Buy a home.

- Jack & Carol
