Very professional service. Marie has great skills with people and negotiation. She is understands clients and their needs, because of this she is able to help find the right home quickly. Her marketing of your home is outstanding and helps your home stand out in the crowd. She has both sold a home for me and find a new one. You will not go wrong with Marie.

Sold a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $200K in Powers, Colorado Springs, CO.

I was very impressed with Marie's expertise of the local hosuing market. The analysis Marie conducted enabled us to list the house at the right selling price. Marie explained the selling process and how to stage the house for a quick sell. Marie's experience really paid off; we sold the house in one day!

Marie showcased her experience in negotiating the Buyer's Inspection Objection items that were more favorable for me but still a win-win for both sides. Marie was very professional, responsive, and fun to work with. I would recommend Marie to anyone who's seeking an agent that's prompt and delivers real results.

Sold a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $200K in Briargate, Colorado Springs, CO.

Awsome! Awsome! Awsome! What a great realtor. This lady will work for you. She is aggressive, bold and determined. Whether you are selling or buying, Marie is the agent for you. Marie just sold my house in 8 days. She told me what I needed to do to sell my house and I did what she said. She was right on everything. If I had not followed her instructions it might have taken me 6 to 8 months to sell my house. It is obvious that Marie takes pride in her work.

Bought a home in 2012.

Marie is helping me find my first home to buy. She has been absolutely wonderful so far. I am living in California and trying to pick out a house online before I go spend 4 days there house huting. She has been so patient with me and my 10 million questions. She is SO awesome at responding to emails. If I send her a question, I get a response back within minutes! She is very professional and so friendly. So far, this experience has been awesome because of Marie! She works with a partner, Jason. Anytime Marie is out of the office, Jason steps in to help me. He has been just as patient and helpful with me! I will update my review after I pick out a home with her in a few weeks! I would HIGHLY recommend Marie! I am just excited to finally meet her in person :)

Bought a Single Family home in 2010 in East Colorado Springs, Colorado Springs, CO.

I absolutely cannot say anything negative about Marie. She has been amazing throughout my entire home buying experience. I am a first time home buyer and Marie was absolutely there to hold my hand and walk me through the entire process. On top of always being there when I needed her and answering all my dumb questions, her staff and her were always so nice and helpful. OK now lets talk about after we closed on our house. My circumstances are a little different than most, we closed on our house on June 15 but we are unable to move in until August 15. Marie has checked on my house several times for me she let my landscaper in to fix my sprinkler system and is even having my new carpet installed this week! I absolutely would recommend her over and over again, she has gone above and beyond her job as a realtor and made me feel less like a customer and more like a friend! Oh and SMAP is amazing!

Marie sold our beautiful "luxury" home in Cedar Heights in only 2 months! Her knowledge of marketing and her recommendations for staging, were very helpful in getting our home sold. Marie's level of communication and knowledge in selling homes is superior! Talk about a negotiator, Marie is a champion! She is professional beyond words, and has a high level of integrity! She makes recommendations on how to get your home sold and is honest about what you can expect from her as far as service. We've used other agents in the past, but none were as professional and as involved in our deal as Marie! If you don't use Marie, you're missing out!

Listed, but didn't sell my Single Family home in 2012 in Monument, CO.

I am disappointed beyond words. I just wish that Marie Sweeeland would have been honest in letting me know of her lack of experience in selling homes in certain areas/ it was the location of my property that she had zero knowledge in. Marie's expertise seems to be in more of a "track home" area where homes are of all the same price range and that being between 250K and 350K. As she stated, she is used to selling homes within 3 months. In this particular market, homes in the 500K range and above are move difficult to sell therefore not selling as quickly which appeared to disturb her 3 month selling cycle. She is pleasant to communicate with but lacks detail in her communication skills such as offering a service but not telling you that you will indeed be chared for that service. I also was asked personal questions in the 5 month brief encounter..one being.."Will you be my friend" and as I told her i was taken aback. I did not know quite how to respond to such a question nor have I ever been asked that before in all of my years. She took the home off the market without even an addendum signed to the contract prior to doing so because and i quote "It is costing me money to have your home on the market this long".

If details are required I have no problem giving them to anyone with proof to my sayings. I'm extremely sad/disappointed that I was so deceived..

Your review concerns me, because I truly care about my clients and strive to assist them in achieving their goals. I was sorry to read your complaint in a public forum. I wish that you would have considered speaking with me directly. I feel that your remarks are a misrepresentation of my honesty, integrity, and experience. I must set the record straight: The statements you attribute to me are simply not true. Also, no fees were billed to you by me or contractors that I referred to you. I understand that you are disappointed that your home has not sold. As a member of Elite 25 and the Institute for Luxury Home Marketing, I am considered an expert in the sale of luxury homes. With over 75 successful closings of homes in Colorado Springs and surrounding areas, my experience speaks for itself. Although I am no longer listing your home, I wish you the best of luck with the next real estate professional you choose. I sincerely hope that you are successful in selling your beautiful home.

Bought a Single Family home in 2012 for approximately $250K in Fountain, CO.

My husband and I just purchased a short sale in Fountain. Not only did Marie help us find a wonderful home at an unbelieveable price, she made the process so easy for us!! She guided us every step of the way of what to expect. I cannot speak more highly about a realtor. She is very professional and knowledgable. She takes the time to listen and gets results. I HIGHLY recommend Marie.

Sold a home in 2011 in Falcon, Security-Widefield, CO 80925.

Our home was listed for over 90 days with another realtor and there was little to no action. After lising with Marie we were moved out of our SOLD home in less than half of that time. Marie took over when another realtor failed to perform. Marie was able to sell our home in a relatively short amount of time and delivered on everything she said. Her team demonstrated their professionalism and ability where others were incapable.
