When our clients speak, we listen.

  • Brandon Smith is an awesome realtor! My husband and I live out of state and knew Brandon would handle everything from the marketing to the negotiating of our home. He did an incredible job and we got the price we wanted. I would recommend him to anyone trying to sell their home or to find the home of their dreams!

  • Dean Wiseman was great throughout the whole process. Honest and upfront about everything. A real pro. He provided great advice and counsel and is very knowledgeable about not only the house we bought but about the industry in general in the town of Colorado Springs. It was a true pleasure working with him and I would definitely recommend him to anyone.

  • We have known Betsy Thinger for a decade. She found us our first house in Colorado Springs which was perfect match. She found our adult children the perfect home which was nothing short of a miracle, and has helped several of our friends. We trust her 100%! Betsy knows everyone and everything about town. She is awesomely proactive in taking care of every detail through and beyond closing. She is kind and pleasant, but firm when she needs to be to get the job done right. An absolute delight to work with and a wonderful agent to have in our corner. We moved over 20 times throughout our military career and have never met or worked with a better Realtor!

  • It was such a joy working with Ed and Renee Behr. They take the stress out of house hunting and purchasing a home. They are in constant communication with you throughout the entire process. Their personal service is beyond measure.

  • I had a “Top of the Line” experience with the MacGuire Team. The sale of my home could not have gone better. They were professional, but warm and personal. I recommend them to everyone and will tell them about The Platinum Group – but especially about the MacGuires!

  • Bill & Pam Hourigan are an EXTRAORDINARY team! They are highly knowledgeable, communicative, dependable, thorough, and attentive to our specific needs & wants in a home. We were trying to buy our Colorado home from a different state and team Hourigan was so proactive and reassuring given the intensely hot market. They were there for us every step of the way… Walked us through our contract, sitting beside us at the closing table and even helping find property deeds after closing! They will be our go-to team for every other real estate endeavor in our future. They have set the bar SO high & we wouldn’t trust anyone else!

  • I wanted to take the time to let you know that Craig Rogers us hands down the best agent we have ever dealt with! We have owned and sold many homes and Craig is far superior to the other agent that we have dealt with.

  • This is our fourth transaction with Debbie Reardon—each and every one was a genuine pleasure. Debbie’s professionalism and attention to detail are phenomenal.

  • I am grateful for the very kind and patient support BJ & Kim Burns offered me on what was sometimes a daily basis! During the process of the sale of my home, they were always available to answer all of my questions and walk confidently with me along each step of the way to closing. Many thanks to you for your friendship & encouragement.

  • Kim Amis has been a great, calming resource for us during the sale and purchase of our homes. Time & time again, she has proven herself to be an excellent partner in these efforts as we are tough customers with specific / changing needs and wants. We would not hesitate to use Kim again and will continue to refer other to has as well.

  • Bill Kemp is not only extremely knowledgeable about the Colorado Springs market place but also honest and works with integrity in his dealings with all parties. I have known him over 14 years and worked with Bill on four separate occasions. Twice buying a home and twice selling a home. He will be my realtor on any future real estate transaction.

  • Working with Dan and his team is great! Dan really understood what we were looking for right away and was always available to help. I would recommend Dan and The Murty Group to any of my closest friends and relatives.

  • We first spoke with Monica Shea when we contacted her over one of her listings we drove past. We had contacted many other listings but without the guidance of a realtor. She was the first person to actually speak with us about what we were looking for in a home. Unfortunately, the home we called her about was already under contract but after just a few minutes of talking she took us under her wing. We looked at 5 houses the first day and another 5 a few days later. After talking us through all the pros and cons we, as first time home buyers, actually felt like we were making an informed decision! This was huge in our decision to make an offer to the seller. She made the entire process after that seamless for us even though the seller made the process very difficult. We never once felt like we didn’t know what was going on and are now a very happy family in a home of our own. She went above and beyond anything we expecting and will definitely be using her if we ever need a realtor again.

  • George and Rebecca Nehme were AMAZING to work with during the sale of our home. We contacted them with VERY late notice as our previous arrangements fell through. Without hesitation, they jumped in and immediately began the marketing process. We were dealing with some tight deadlines in the sale of the home as we were in the process of building a new home. The Nehme team not only got the home under contract in less than two weeks with a full-price offer, but they negotiated a rent-back agreement with the buyer that allowed us to stay in the home for five days AFTER the closing to allow us to close on the new home, and move. That relieved a ton of stress and allowed us the luxury of not having to move into a short-stay hotel or inconvenience friends/family while were without a home between closings. George and Rebecca Nehme listen to what’s important to you as a buyer and they work diligently with those parameters during the sell. They went well beyond our wildest expectations for this process. We would recommend them to anybody looking to sell or buy a home. Their expertise, care and understanding made what could have been a very stressful process very manageable.

  • We attended many open houses and spoke to many realtors, but Raquel Robison immediately stood out to us. Before ever making a statement—delivering a value proposition—she asked us many questions. This not only projected that a relationship with her would be oriented on our needs, but when she recommended properties in which we might have an interest, every one of them did meet our basic needs. Every visit to our next potential home with her was an immensely valuable experience for us as we examined it against our needs with Raquel listening closely, asking more questions, and offering insights. Her demeanor was never about trying to sell us something, but selflessly trying to find the right fit for us.

    Once we decided to make an offer on a home, throughout the process, from constructing the offer thru closing she remained proactively attentive to us. There are probably several dozen critical steps leading up to a closing, and Raquel’s milestone reminders were always timely, helpful, and delivered with kindness and understanding. We can offer no suggestions on how we would improve this experience…When we do know of someone who is seeking a home, we will, without hesitation, send them to Raquel.

  • Because of The Andersen Team we were able to meet our goal – sell for a reasonable price in a timely manner. Mission Accomplished!

  • We first met Tarema Underwood via phone as my wife and I were both stationed in Washington State and were scheduled to move to Colorado. During the 4-6 months leading up to our move, Tarema did such a phenomenal job not only reassuring us that all would be well once we had arrived, but answered all the questions we had (such as distance to and from Fort Carson, best school districts for our three kids- High School down to Preschool, pro’s and con’s of the different areas in Monument and Colorado Springs, etc.) and more. Once we arrived, she had at least 75 houses prepped and ready for us to view. What impressed us even more than that, was her HONESTY and PATIENCE with every single house we viewed. Even after seeing all 75 or so houses and wanting more, her demeanor seemed to be the exact same as when we first met over the phone- cool, calm, and collective. It was clear to us that her desire was not to hurry up and make a sell, but to ensure we found the best possible place for our family- even if it meant purchasing something at the very bottom of our budget. Even when we thought we found the best place available, Tarema would give us a few pertinent pointers to consider which helped us avoid a potential disaster in the long run. When it came time to make an offer, Tarema was there for it all (which really helped ease much of the tension and stress of the process). We are forever indebted to her for what she did in helping us find a remarkable home…She is truly a blessing and we wish every State the Army sends us to we could take her with us for she truly is a “Real Estate Angel in Disguise!

  • Suzanne is one of the Preferred Twenty-Five realtors in Colorado Springs because she’s honest, reliable and successful in selling. Suzanne is truly interested in her client’s needs, concerns and expectations even when those expectations don’t line up with reality.

    Kevin & Blakely
  • Shelley Pelle has gone above and beyond to meet and exceed our expectations every step of the way. Her professionalism and kindness is especially reassuring during the buying and selling process.

    Josh & Jennifer M.
  • Skip Johnson was a pleasure to work with. His experience and knowledge of the COS’s market made the buying experience easy. I would strongly recommend Skip as a top notch real estate agent. We will use him on our next real estate transaction.

    Ted Gardziel
  • Chris Cowels helped us sell a house owned by an trust–a little more complicated because we were not the actual owners and we were out of town. He was great to work with–enthusiastic, willing to discuss any and every detail, exceedingly helpful. He got the house listed promptly; he had a roofer check out the roof before we even signed a contract with him. He kept us informed with weekly emails and on showings and feedback from prospective buyers. Once we had an offer, he arranged for the inspection resolution repairs. Chris has been a pleasure to work with and I would recommend him to anyone in need of a realtor.

  • Anne Marie Flynn has been my Realtor for our past six transactions. Each time her professionalism, friendly “can do” attitude, fast response time, care, concern and follow through rang through loud and clear. She is a talented intermediary and her calm advice helped when my husband and I could not see eye to eye. She makes it seem easy.

    Jane D.
  • From the first time we met Steve McFarlane, through closing on the home we purchased and the closing on the sale of our old house, you’ve been nothing short of professional, helpful and most of all extremely valuable to us. There is no way we could have found property, built a new home and sold the house we moved from without your assistance, guidance, professionalism and relationship we developed. I’m certain we wouldn’t have found the same level of experience, expertise, and care we found by having you be our realtor.

  • Brandon is an outstanding realtor with excellent knowledge of the market and how to price a home. After talking to him, Brandon helped me to set a fair market value on my home. Brandon brought in a professional decorator to stage my home and make it shine, and then used a professional photographer to show my home to its highest potential on-line and in a multi-page brochure. He also gave me center-page advertising in the Sunday Gazette and marketed my house across multiple websites. When a good offer came in on the house, Brandon helped me negotiate a fair price. If I ever buy or sell a house again, Brandon Smith will be the only realtor that I call. I highly recommend him to anyone looking to buy or sell a home.

    Client
  • Brandon helped us buy a wonderful first home AND then sold it for us 6 years later when we needed to move! Both times he expertly guided us through the process and provided priceless advice and resources to us as first-time home buyers and sellers. We highly recommend him for anyone looking to buy or sell a home!

    Client
  • Brandon is an awesome realtor! My husband and I live out of state and knew Brandon would handle everything from the marketing to the negotiating of our home. He did an incredible job and we got the price we wanted. I would recommend him to anyone trying to sell their home or to find the home of their dreams!

    Client
  • Mike and his team were simply amazing. We were selling our house from out of town and they took care of everything. They went above and beyond to make sure the house was ready to go. They have an extensive network of contractors to do any work required prior to the sale. Our sale couldn’t have been easier…or faster…we were on contract eight days after listing! Eight days…and we closed less than 60 days later. Mike and his team are the best. You won’t be sorry you listed with them!

  • Mike and Missy team were very professional and helpful with assisting us in building a new home and selling the home we were in. They are always quick to respond to any communication, and once the closing dates neared they were on top of making sure we had completed and received everything we needed to. Mike really knows the Springs and was upfront with all the pros and cons that go with building a house to make sure we didn’t jump into anything before thoroughly thinking through our decision. We worked with them 7 years ago when we relocated to the Springs and were so satisfied with their work we used them again for this more recent move.

    John & Jelena
  • Mike & Missy, we wanted to thank you for helping us sell our home. The sale of the house felt like a miracle! We had tried for months prior (using a different Realtor) with zero success. Your methods of attracting buyers worked! You were always quick to return calls, answer any questions, and offer advice to sell the home that we otherwise would never have thought of. You contacted us regularly even when we hadn’t called you to just stay in touch and keep us well informed on your strategies.  You were always so kind and professional, right down to making sure all paperwork and appointments were met, and a closing that went quickly and smoothly. For this and more, we are truly grateful and wanted to say Thank You

  • Linda Lafferty takes the terms professionalism, courtesy, and client satisfaction and redefines them. She doesn’t just go the extra mile, she goes to whatever length necessary to make sure you are fully informed and that everything is completed timely and in as smooth a fashion as possible. As first time home buyers we had numerous questions and Linda took the time to fully explain everything to us and also made sure to bring up and explain things we needed to know that we were not even aware of. From our very first meeting I knew Linda had not only the expertise but also the friendly demeanor we needed in a realtor and she still blew every expectation we had out of the water.

    Maegan and Michael
  • We have referred Linda to friends who have told us that they are “keeping her for themselves” because they were so impressed with the level of service that she provides. Linda is always available and present; she is so knowledgeable and attends to the process with so much diligence and going so far above expectations that it really sets her apart. Linda has both our loyalty as customers as well as our friendship. We feel truly blessed to have Linda in our lives; not only is she an amazing realtor but an amazing person.

    Brandon and Wynne
  • Approximately 15 years ago, Linda helped my mom and I find our first home in Colorado Springs. It was a special time for us because my mom had just gotten divorced and it was our first time on  our own, but Linda made the process as easy as possible for us. Linda took care of items that we would never know to track and made sure that we were covered in every aspect of the purchase. We have since sold and purchased homes through Linda and have been blown away by her consistent excellence each time.

    Client
  • We are beyond satisfied with Linda’s services helping us acquire our forever home. Linda is phenomenal at everything she does! Linda provides first-rate, professional, knowledgeable, and honest real estate services. We were referred to Linda by a couple of our friends (independent of each other) and were told she is the best. We have not been disappointed at all. We are brand new to Colorado Springs and she helped us in all sorts of ways with her knowledge of the area. It is so important to have an honest and super personable realtor on your team when house hunting (or selling). Linda is very accommodating to your needs, works nonstop, and will protect your interests with her vast professional knowledge. It is clear that Linda has a high level of business integrity and will make sure that her clients are fully satisfied. We have zero complaints and only high praises! We definitely highly recommend Linda!

  • Laura Kaan is not just an excellent Realtor – she leads a superb team of experienced real estate professionals. Each person on the team is first-rate at what they do. Throughout the process, there was consistent communication, in person, by phone, text, and email.
    For military buyers, she understands intricacies of military life, VA home purchases, and has a military-appreciation cash back program that beats USAA/Navy Fed rates.
    We came into the home purchase process as first-time buyers with a stringent list of home requirements. Laura set us up with a custom-tailored MLS website that helped sift through hundreds of homes to arrive at the short list. As we started viewing homes on the short-list, her team helped us find and see crucial details on each home we viewed. Laura and her team provided insightful perspective and local knowledge that was essential for making an informed purchase decision.
    In the end, we closed on the home we wanted, it was in our desired neighborhood, and it had all of our desired features – perfect.

    Client
  • Laura Kaan and her team of professionals was nothing short of superb during our home buying experience. She and her husband showed us over 40 homes throughout the Colorado Springs area in an attempt to find us the best house that fit our criteria and price range. Laura and her staff were extremely accommodating, especially since I was looking at homes while living in another state and my wife was overseas. There was no pressure to buy, and her knowledge of the housing market was second to none. Laura patiently took the time to explain all the document information required for buying a house and answered all of our questions in timely manner. I cannot emphasize enough how great it was to work with Laura Kaan and her team at the Platinum Realty Group. If you are looking for a professional, competent, and diligent Realtor in the Colorado Springs area, I highly recommend choosing Laura Kaan.

    Client
  • Searching for and buying a house while stationed overseas is not an easy task but, thanks to Laura, we found our Colorado dream home! Laura and her team guided us through out the whole process and was always there to quickly answer all of our questions. She went above and beyond our expectations. This is not our first real estate transaction but Laura is, by far, the best real estate agent we ever dealt with. Even after closing she is still there to help with anything we might need. We highly recommend her!

    Client
  • Nate was an exceptional resource for us as we sold our home and purchased a new one! His knowledge of the market and process is top notch. He was always professional and pleasant to deal with, and didn’t hesitate to accommodate our schedules. He and his team went above and beyond to make the process seamless for us. I would highly recommend Nate and his team to help guide you through the buying and/or selling process…you won’t be disappointed.

    Jenn M.
  • Nate and his team personify professionalism. They were prompt to answer all of our questions and exceeded all of expectations while guiding us through the selling process. By far the best experience we have ever had with a real estate agent!

  • Nate Banet and his office were an absolute pleasure to work with. He demonstrates a proficient knowledge of the area and price range I was looking for, and helped me secure a below-asking price in a very hot seller’s market. His calm demeanor, professional knowledge, and impartial advice made buying my first home a fun and stress-free experience. I highly recommend him to other buyers.

    David C.
  • Taura was so helpful and patient with me while looking for the house that was PERFECT for me. She is very knowledgeable and I loved working with her. She has gone above and beyond helping with post-closing questions as well. She’s the BEST!!
