Bought a home in 2010.
When I started looking on the Internet for properties in Twin Lakes/Leadville area, I emailed two realtors. The first never responded and two days later, I found that the property has been removed from the listing. The second gave me a runaround to someone else. No response from there either. Then I emailed Craig Reynolds about a property at Beaver Lakes. He responded within hours and next Friday we met to look at several lots. Craig was very knowledgeable of the area and its history and aware of the pros and cons of buying at each subdivision. Unlike realtors from other counties, he knew what the actual market values were and most of the properties he showed were a good deal from investment perspective as well as great building sites. One of the properties he pointed out was a really nice treed lot with a gorgeous view on La Plata Peak Dr. It was listed for $7,500 below the assessor’s value, while every lot nearby was priced at least $2,000 over the assessor’s value. Next week, we went back to Twin Lakes with my wife to see that property and a few others. Before the end of the day we decided to submit an offer for the lot on La Plata Peak Dr. Craig handled everything very professionally and made it fairly easy for me to acquire the lot for my dream home. He provided all the referrals I needed to secure a loan and get a builder inspection.

Sold a Single Family home in 2012 for approximately $450K in Leadville, CO.
I am a custom home builder in the Colorado High Country. It was important that we list our home with someone who knew the area, the market and who could appreciate true craftsmanship. Craig was all of those and more. He made the whole process easy and enjoyable. I would recommend Craig to anyone who is looking for a true professional! I know he will be helping us find our next property!

I found Craig to be exceptionally knowledgable about the area I was searching. He was basically a no bs kind of guy but managed to pull it off while keeping a sense of humor. He was always accurate wiith what I should expect and quickly available when I had a question. He made a complicated process seem very easy. I wholeheartedly recommend Craig as a real estate agent for anyone fortunate enough to get an opportunity to use his services.

Bought a Single Family home in 2010 for approximately $325K in Parker, CO.
Now that our family is settling into our new home, I felt it was time to acknowledge the important role Craig Reynolds of Reynolds Real Estate Group played in our relocation.

To begin, about 10 months ago our family decided to embark on a new adventure and relocate from Vermont to the Denver Area. I had a new job and the timing seemed right for us to make a move. Having never relocated before, we were not prepared for everything that could possibly happen.

The first thing I did was an Internet Search for a realtor. The Reynolds Real Estate Group Website came up high in the search and I was impressed with the professional quality of their site. I made contact and was pleasantly surprised by Craig’s quick and clear response. He immediately got to know me and my family through personal questions and was able to make value based judgments from my answers.

Craig and I stayed in contact for about 6 weeks prior to my move to Denver to begin my new job. In the meantime, my family stayed behind in Vermont to sell our home. My first weekend in the Denver Area was a little stressful and I was questioning our decision to move, but Craig made me feel at ease. We met in person shortly after I made the trip, and we began looking at houses and neighborhoods. One thing about Craig is his ability to pull out of you what you are feeling. I was amazed at how comfortable I was around him and that he so quickly understood what I was looking for in a home for my family. Before long, he knew exactly what I was thinking about a particular house or area, which helped us narrow down our search much quicker.

During the process of selling my house in Vermont and buying a house in Colorado, there were a lot of ups and downs. My situation changed from the type of home we needed, when my wife’s father decided he was going to move with us. This arrangement went back and forth a few times ending with my father-in-law staying in Vermont. Craig was extremely patient with the indecision on our part. Next we had two deals fall through on the sale of our house, which again meant we were moving quickly on the Colorado end to put in an offer only to have to back out when our sale fell through. The best part about all of this was Craig’s attention to detail and he made sure we didn’t get hung out to dry when we had to back out.

Finally, the day came when we sold our house in Vermont and the offer on a home in Parker, Colorado was accepted. Little did we know that our relocation adventure was not quite over. The professional home inspection went well and we were on track, the night before the closing we met with Craig at the house for the walk through. There were a few issues as the house was not clean and some of the inclusions were missing. Craig was relentless in his efforts to contact the seller’s realtor and get the issues corrected. His professionalism and personal credibility were exceptional. I have worked with many realtors over the past 25 years as I am in the property and rental management business and Craig is at the top of the list.

My wife and I have spoken to many of our friends and acquaintances at just how effective Craig Reynolds was throughout the relocating process. I can honestly say that if not for his efforts we would not have been able to do this on our own. He has become invaluable by exceeding our expectations not only as a realtor but as a friend.

To Whom It May Concern,

My wife and I first meet Craig looking for vacation property in the Chaffee and Lake County areas. We really needed someone that knew the area and knew the market. We were looking for property within a certain price range and meeting certain criteria. We were impressed with Craig’s knowledge of the area and the properties we were interested in. Craig had the answers to all our questions or found the answers in a timely fashion. He really does his research. It is as if he were purchasing the property himself. Craig worked diligently with us for two years, before we found our dream property. Whether we were looking or entering the buying process; we truly trusted Craig and always believed he was looking out for our best interest. We found that Craig truly listened to our needs and his no pressure sells approach made us feel at ease through the whole process. So much at ease we have since purchased another property with Craig.

Respectfully,

Jim and Joanne Pustizzi

Bought a Single Family home in 2011 for approximately $425K in Buena Vista, CO.
Following Craig's fast response to our original email inquiry as to properties in the Leadville and south central CO areas, he called us to ask questions. Craig paid attention to the details of what we were looking for, both in the home, neighborhood, activities, churches in the areas, and asked for input in other areas we had not considered. After evaluating our responses, he then sent us a link to view the listings he had determined we may want to look at, that he had put up on his secured website for us to review. This was very convenient and absolutely helpful, as we had been looking in several other areas of the state as well, and were travelling around Colorado at the time. We were able to easily narrow down the selections to what could be viewed over a 2 or 3 day period. When we scheduled our visit to the area, Craig was extremely accomodating to our schedule and was able to coordinate the home visitations with the other listing realtors while minimizing our travel times. He kept a few homes 'in reserve' that we had eliminated, as some of them met the criteria we had expressed to him. Craig made and took the time to help us explore and examine the towns and neighborhoods, even taking us to the local libraries, chambers of commerce and community centers to ensure we got to meet local people and get a sense of the communities. He always kept our best interests in mind. After showing us many properties over several days time, we ended up negotiating for a property in Buena Vista, one that we had originally discarded and that he had kept 'in reserve' anyway. We are SO GLAD he did that! Craig did an excellent job in helping in the negotiations, always keeping us protected during this process and always being fair. His help was absolutely invaluable as we are from out of state, and had minimal time to travel for taking care of the details. He was present for the home inspection, successfully handled the subsequent negotiations and also took excellent care of ensuring the details up to the closing were handled expeditiously, at least as far as what was in our control. The closing went without a hitch, and we are the happy and proud owners of our retirement home in Buena Vista! As he had originally told us, and we didn't really believe at the time since we weren't originally looking in BV, it is a wonderful place with so much to do! One of our issues each day we are home, is deciding what to do first that day. Hiking, fishing, biking (both road and trail), exploring, skiing, snowshoeing, or watching the inaugural Pro Cycling event ride through town, etc., etc.... Thank you Craig for making this a very positive experience. Having purchased several houses over the years, we can and DO highly recommend Craig Reynolds as one of the best agents/brokers we have ever had the pleasure to work with. He follows through with what he says he will do. As per our comments above, he also goes above and beyond, in our experience in working with him.
