"We are a young unmarried couple buying our first house together. Our realtor Jake was friendly and made it very easy to schedule viewings and our inspection even though he had to drive from Colorado Springs to Pueblo. Our buying process with pink realty was an all-around enjoyable experience."

I am writing to express my appreciation of the Pink Team who represented me as a first time home buyer in Colorado Springs. The staff worked wonderfully as a team to guide me through the entire process, from loan prequalification with Lori Sorrels, to searching for houses with Amber, to making the offer and closing the deal with Deborah. Thanks to Monica and the entire Pink Team for making my dream of home ownership a reality :-)"

House shopping can be so stressful and scary. Monica Breckenridge made it so much fun and a great adventure. When she talked to us she asked us a lot of great questions and even asked each of the kids what they wanted in a house. At each house she looked at with us, she noticed all the things I would have forgotten to look for. Closets, carpeting in the dining room (A huge fat no go with me) and all the little things the kids considered important to them. Eventually after almost 30 houses we found that perfect place to call home. It has the Wow factor I dreamed of and all the fun things the kids wanted. She is a rare find in a realtor. She thought of so much more than we did and walked us through it all nicely. And Lori Sorrels was an amazing mortgage writer. We closed on time, smoothly and with a great interest rate. I just can’t say enough good things about Pink Realty! What I think I loved most was driving around in her big pink car!

"This is the second time my wife and I have used Monica in the past 4 When we left Colorado for Alaska, we thought we were done - Monica and the Pink Team took real good care of us when we were out of state and country trying to sell our home - the market wasn't as "hot" as it is now, but she had three buyers in a bidding war and got us top dollar for our home we were selling, so it was a no-brainer to use her when we moved back and bought a home.
Now, a new-build isn't for the faint of heart, let me tell you! But Monica made sure we had ALL the information we needed to make an informed decision. She brought us to all of the builders, with the intention of just looking at floor plans (we were looking at a time frame of a year out!), explained to us which builders included what design features/upgrades, and which builders nickeled and dimed you, explained everything from lot premiums to closing costs and didn't treat us like ingnoramouses when we asked questions that we didn't understand.
The entire Pink Team has been amazing as well! Their marketing department has wonderful information on new builds on their website, Brian and Kaitlyn in the Transaction Coordinator office have been patient, kind and unfazed on the litany of information that passes between us, the lender, the builder, the builder's coordinator, the sales office, the design center, the VA, the appraisers....there isn't a single detail that has gone by the wayside.
Thank you, Monica. Thank you, Pink Team. You are all the very best of the best!

I would highly recommend Monica Breckenridge and the Pink Team to anyone desiring to sell their home. Monica is truly a professional. She is courteous, and very knowledgeable of the real estate market in the City of Colorado Springs. She posses a very pleasing personality, a "can do" attitude and a willingness to assist to the maximum. The manner in which she advertised and staged each room in my rental property was commendable. As a result, my property sold within the first week it was placed on the market, And I am happy to say, it sold for the exact asking price. She was in touch with my wife and I almost daily throughout the selling process. Lastly, the closing went very smooth. Again, I would without hesitation, recommend Monica to anyone in need of a realtor.

My husband and I contacted Pink Realty on the recommendation from a friend who had just purchased a home through them as well. Within the afternoon Monica had contacted me to get some general information on what we were looking for in a home and after that the Realtor we would be working one-on-one with, Deborah, had contacted us to set up some showings. We were in a rush to buy a home ASAP but we never felt pressured to purchase any of the homes we looked at. We told Deborah what we were looking for and she showed us some houses, which exactly fit what we had asked for in a home but none of them felt right. After viewing a few listings we sat and talked to Deborah and described detailed features in the homes that we liked/didn't like and she later called us with more listings that again, fit our requirements but this time they all felt more like "home". We found our home and were under contract that night, the entire home buying process took less than 6 weeks from start to finish. Pink Realty was so helpful throughout the whole process, from recommending an amazing financial lender, to home inspectors, to sewer scopes, Radon Mitigation installation, to title companies and often got $50-$100 discounts from the companies for being recommended by Pink Realty.
We had a small negotiation battle going back and forth with the seller and even though it was right in the middle of the holiday season, Deborah kept us completely informed and explained things easy and simple so that we, as first time home buyers, knew what was going on and knew what to expect. We don't plan on moving any time soon but if the situation ever calls for it, we will absolutely be using Pink Realty's Services and would definitely recommend them especially to first time home buyers.
