Working w/ u 2 realize ur RE dreams, Real Estate Broker in Colorado (15 years experience)
JoEllen came recommended after an unbelievably awful experience with a top-dollar Denver Tech Center firm. Her attention to detail and ability to listen to (and understand) me and my husband was outstanding and she definitely put us at ease right from the start. She made us feel like we were her only clients and really kept on top of the searches, changing the parameters each time we considered different styles of houses and tweaked our search area. On house-hunting trips she answered our many, many questions and let us explore each house without much interference. When we asked for her opinions, she always gave us multiple ways of looking at things, based on her experience, and was never pushy or salesperson-like. We looked for months before we found the right house and I felt like she would have kept looking with us for a year if we needed to, which has not been my experience with other Realtors. Also, she is a sweetheart who is nice and funny and pleasant to spend the day with. I absolutely recommend JoEllen to anyone who is cautious and thoughtful and wants to understand the process. Although it was not my first time buying a home, she would be a perfect person for a first-time homebuyer.
Sold a Multi Family home in 2014 for approximately $300K in Lakewood, CO.
JoEllen was great from the start to finish. She explained the pricing process using comparable properties that had sold nearby. Once we decided to put our property on the market, she went to work with an urgency I had not expected. Under contract in about one week! I could not believe it. During the transaction, she explained each step and always was there to answer any of our questions. JoEllen's negotiation skills up to closing were excellent. If my wife and I had to do it over, we wouldn't change a thing. Thanks JoEllen for a great job well done!
A friend recommended JoEllen to be my real estate agent for my first home purchase. I don't think she could have made the process any easier!
JoEllen made herself available practically any time I found a property I wanted to look at. She's thorough in looking for problem spots in prospective homes and always grilled me with questions at the end to help me decide where each home fell on my scale of 1-10.
After getting my offer accepted, this is where JoEllen really shined. She kept me on track with all of the dates I needed to know and sent me weekly updates with what needed to happen to keep the process moving.
All around, especially for someone unfamiliar with all the ins and outs of home buying, I would highly recommend JoEllen.
Sold a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $875K in Pine, CO.
If your looking for the best there is you just found her. We moved from Boston to Pine and we were working with her well before we arrived. Then when we did arrive she could not have done more for us. She took us anywhere and everywhere we wanted to go and see. Her knowledge and expertise are unmatched, and her friendly and supportive approach was reassuring and it was a true pleasure to work with her. Her attention to details took us through the whole process where every "I" was dotted and every "t" was crossed. It could not have been a better experience.

Response from JoEllen on 08/18/2014
Jason thank you for the nice review....if I may add; you had worked with at least one other broker who was unable to find you a suitable home after 6 months (if I remember correctly). Jason you knew what you wanted and had seen enough homes that when I zoned in on one for you, you were in the position to move quickly. Thank you for being a great person and client.

JoEllen helped my husband and I purchase our first home in May 2014. We chose JoEllen based on her excellent Zillow reviews, and she completely surpassed our expectations. She is extremely hard-working, experienced, efficient, patient, thorough, and kind. I would say one of the qualities that really blew us away was her responsiveness. We preferred doing a lot of our communication through email, and she always answered our (many) questions the same day, if not within an hour.
As another reviewer similarly experienced, we were looking for a home during a frustrating market for buyers with little inventory, rising home prices, and homes that sold within hours. We had to move quickly to look at homes, and JoEllen accommodated our schedule to look after work during the week and on the weekends. When the home we ultimately purchased popped up and only accepted bids for one day, JoEllen was able to get us into the house for a viewing that evening and she worked hard to help us put a bid on the home that night. Throughout the entire buying process we always felt that she was on our side, supporting us and guiding us through the twists and turns of home buying. We could not have asked for a better real estate agent to work with, and would absolutely recommend her for buying a home in the Denver area. We hope to work with her again in the future!
She worked very hard for us throughout the whole process. We totally trust her. She also possesses great local knowledge and gave us several referrals for contractors and other resources we were looking for.
The sale turned out to be more complicated and stressful than we had initially thought it was going to be. So it was nice to know we had her to rely on as a resource.
We also used her help to purchase a home in Lakewood about a year ago.
Bought a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $300K in Lakewood, CO.
After researching real estate agents that had experience in the neighborhoods we were looking for, we chose JoEllen due to her extensive online recommendations. We worked with her during an extremely frustrating market for buyers, with little to no inventory and homes that sold within a matter of hours. JoEllen took the time to really understand what kind of home we were searching for, and patiently worked with us for close to nine months. With all of the frustrations, emotions and stress that comes with the process, JoEllen kept us to our original strategy and helped us purchase our first home. We would absolutely recommend working with her to sell or purchase a home.
Bought a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $300K in Arvada, CO.
Working with JoEllen Ufner, we purchased a home in Arvada CO, in spring 2014. JoEllen had excellent listening skills and was extremely effective in finding us available listings to meet our stringent requirements for a home. There was never any doubt about JoEllen’s priorities, although we know she had many other clients, we were always treated like her most important. JoEllen was in constant contact with us throughout the process, a much appreciated work characteristic, as I was a first time home buyer. We highly recommend JoEllen, and fully intend to use her again and again in the coming years.
