Sold a Single Family home in 2014 in Peyton, CO.

Amazing realtors to work with! They know the market well and help with every step of the process, felt like we were talking to family with our calls. We knew our property may be hard to selll with it's location but they were confident they could do it,and they did! We were thrilled with them and would call them again. In fact two other families on our previous street are going with them also!!

Sold a home in 2014.

Craig and Noreen McConnell are the absolute BEST realtors you could ever find. Not only did they help me find a piece of property and work with a custom builder to build my new house but when I lost my job and had to leave the state, Craig & Noreen were there for me through the entire process going WAY above and beyond anything a realtor should have to do. Craig even came out to the house one morning to jump start my car when the battery died. What realtor do you know would ever do that for their clients? While I was out of state starting a new job, the sump pump tripped during a power outage and the basement flooded. Craig spent hours and hours getting the house fixed and back on the market for me as fast as possible. He hired 3rd party contractors for me in lieu of a water mitigation company saving hundreds if not thousands of dollars. If it hadn't been for his hard work, I don't know what I would have done. They worked tirelessly through several offers to purchase and buyer backouts until finally we got one to stick. Unfortunately we had to do a short sale but without the help of Craig and Noreen, I probably would have foreclosed. Most realtors would have given up on me but they didn't. They kept pushing on. I highly recommend them to anyone looking for quality, friendship, and family by true real estate professionals who are there for you in the good times and bad and don't just look out for themselves but for their customers, partners, and friends that they make in their real estate transactions. I am proud and honored to have worked with Avalar Real Estate Solutions and proud to call them friends. Thank you Craig & Noreen for EVERYTHING! You are much appreciated and if I ever get a chance to return to Colorado, you will be the first ones I call! I miss you guys and hope we keep in touch!

Sold a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $300K in Peyton, CO.

When I decided to list my property in Falcon, I checked on the top agents in the area and found Noreen and Craig McConnell. I set up an interview and they came right on the agreed upon time - very prompt. I was so impressed with them and their knowledge of the area. Their outgoing personalities were also a deciding factor on choosing them to market my property - very warm and friendly. I also could tell that they would be awesome negotiators, which proved correct when the first offer came in a lot lower than the asking price. Craig countered back with a no-holds approach with my counter offer and the buyers accepted right away. He did not want me to waste my time going back and forth with offers, so the deal was done that day! All through the process, they were available with answers and solutions - right away, no waiting. I knew that I had an awesome property to sell and they did to - it helps when you are on the same page with your agents. Their expertise and honest approach to make my property marketable paid off in a quick sale. I would recommend them to anyone who is interested in having a reputable couple market their property with fantastic results.

Bought a Single Family home in 2013 in Calhan, CO.

We had SUCH a wonderful experience working with Craig and Noreen! They were my parents neighbors for several years and they were always kind to our family during that time. We just purchased a home last week - Craig and Noreen were so professional and right on top of the whole process. They stood by us, fought for us, and ALWAYS had our best interest at heart! They were respectful of our decisions, and were even so kind to our three kids. We would highly recommend anyone to work with them - you will NOT be disappointed! Thank you both so much!!!

Sold a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $150K in Ramah, CO.

We were very pleased with his professionalism, and his positive attitude, even when negotiations got a little difficult. He always tried to smooth things out with the other realtor and the buyer, without getting emotionally involved in any of it. We accomplished our main goal, and that was for selling the house...but he really didn't take sides on any issue, and tried to please both the buyer and the seller. The only negative thing I could say is that he brought the selling price down lower than we wanted, without telling us. Other than that, I would recommend him and his wife highly. They do a very good job.

Yes, there were a lot of hurdles & we're glad we were able to jump over them all for a successful closing! Ramah is a tougher market, plus having renters who didn't comply with everything was another challenge.....but we had to lower the price to get it done or this chapter would not be closed yet! The seller always has the final word in accepting an offering price & the option of rejecting an offer. We wish you all the best ahead!

Dear Noreen and Craig. It was a pleasure to have you work with/for me. I especially appreciated the no pressure aspect of the relationship. You were very professional yet personable. I highly recommend you and have no complaints. Thank you.

We connected, but it did not work out.

I called and ask if he could show me a property. He told me he would call me back after he checked into it . He never called me back. I was extremely disappointed in him because when something comes on the market you have to jump on it quickly. I feel that because this property was listed at 127,000 that maybe he did not have time to bother with me.

We are sorry that your request for seeing a property somehow "slipped through the cracks". Typically we work about 13-16 hour days 6 days a week & do our best to respond to the many requests & details that fill our days. The listing price of a property is not a factor, as our primary focus is upon making our clients happy, no matter what their interests are. We work with a large variety of price ranges: not only home sales, but land sales (currently as low as $30,000). We do our best to answer our cell as much as possible or return answers in a timely manner if we're with clients or on another call. This call most likely happened at an extremely busy time, so we wish you could have had patience with us & tried at least one more time to contact us. Our sincere apologies for your inconvenience.

Bought a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $175K in Calhan, CO.

Craig is a very professional yet down to earth person. He waited almost 4 months for our financing to go through, knowing we really wanted the house. He was always so gracious and responsive when we needed anything, and was also quick to respond to all our requests. He kept us informed of everything happening with the remodeling of the house. He is overall a great person to work with.

Sold a home in 2014.

Graig and Noreen are a great team. They are very diligent in working with their clients to achieve the result that each desires. Follow through of a listing and a sale is very special to the closing and completion of a transaction. This team is the very best at keeping the client informed through the closing process. Having worked with real estate brokers as a banker and lender, Graig and Noreen are at the top of the list for their knowledge and ability to help you.
