Thank you so much for everything! Guiding me through the house-buying process, all my questions, emails, phone calls. Thanks for helping me find the perfect house for me. I am beyond happy. I am so thankful that I had someone I trusted so much to help me every step of the way. I really appreciate your thoughtfulness, from the house plant to inviting me out to dinner. Nothing like celebrating with margaritas! Thank you, thank you, thank you!

When my previous unsatisfactory Realtor’s contract expired, I was determined to interview carefully for a replacement. Somehow it mushroomed to 7 candidates. Though quite favorably impressed with several of the choices, I was just steamrollered by the thoroughness of research and depth of experience exhibited by Elaine and Gary. Not to mention the entertaining interaction between Elaine’s enthusiastic efficiency and Gary’s casual competence! They clearly have a reputation among other Realtors, too. When I explained my choice to disappointed contenders, a common reaction was that they couldn’t feel bad about losing out to such strong competitors. Despite a very weak market for homes like mine, I was not disappointed. After a whirlwind re-marketing, Gary and Elaine sold it in just a week.

Great appreciation for you is related to the sale of my house. You were: much more initially responsive than I expected, provided more of a marketing plan (including process steps) than I expected, priced the house correctly (at more than I expected), obtained a good offer faster than I expected, kept my daughter and me well informed of progress and next steps and returned our calls more promptly than expected, provided more support for me and the whole deal to closing than I expected, made the closing process much easier than expected (by explaining the process and documents in advance). In summary, you exceeded my expectations in all ways (including, but not limited to those above). My expectations were further exceeded when I received a “Thank You for selling your beautiful house to us” note and New Years wishes from the people who bought the house. You certainly created a very positive aura around this transaction.

Gary and Elaine have a great rapport with each other and work very well as a team. We always felt each knew what the other was doing so we could talk with either one at any time. They are professional, personable, and a pleasure to work with. They will be our first choice in the future!
- Thomas and Laurie Axner
Elaine was great! My wife was transferred to NCAR in January, and so we began looking at houses in Boulder and surrounding areas. We submitted ideas to Elaine and she was able to show us some great houses. Once we found the home we loved, Elaine helped us through every part of the purchase process. We would recommend Elaine to anyone looking for a house in the Boulder Area! Thanks again!
- Sheri and Tim Mickelson
Professional and knowledgeable—Gary and Elaine made the process of selling my home simple and problem free. So many people came through the house, it was no surprise it sold in a couple of weeks! Good job!

Having been a Real Estate Agent myself, and having dealt with multiple Boulder Brokers in the past, we decided to interview 6 of the top Boulder Brokers. This interview process led us to choose Gary and Elaine Collins. Their vast experience as Brokers, history of negotiating a variety of Real Estate transactions, their command of nuances in the Boulder market, and their warm, genuine demeanor made them the obvious choice. Within 2 months they had both of our properties sold. Thank you Gary and Elaine!
- Brian and Liz Cleveland
Elaine and Gary are a terrific team! It was enjoyable to go house hunting…they each offer a different perspective to help the buyer analyze the properties and make a final choice. We were extremely satisfied.
- Tom and Sally Houk
Thank you so very much for helping me find my incredible condo. I cannot tell you how much it means to me to have had your help and guidance during this process! I trust you both fully and I thank you for treating me like family!
- Kat Stefanski
Elaine has fantastic knowledge of the local market and steered us to areas that met our needs and likes/dislikes. She was very patient with out ever-changing requests.
- Charles Martin
We appreciate your tireless attention to detail and assistance throughout the entire process! We look forward to our new lives in CO and thank you for making us feel so welcome!
- Hadley Trotter and Adrien Robenhymer
What we really appreciate about Gary is his depth of experience and knowledge about the full range of issues that arose-and his ability to explain these to relative neophytes like us.
- Philip and Beth Nicholson
Elaine’s professionalism and knowledge of the type of home we were looking for was very refreshing. We had already been under contract and had to cancel this summer, and we were worried we would not find the right home in the timeframe we had to work with. After meeting her, we were confident we would find the right place — and we did. Thank you Elaine!
- John Cherry
Thank you so much for everything you did to help us sell our home successfully and find our new home. You told us exactly what to do to help us sell quickly and at the right price. People are amazed when we tell them our home sold in 5 days! Your responsiveness, care, and understanding of the market are amazing. We are so grateful to have been referred to you, and we will be sending clients your way whenever possible. We look forward to a wonderful new year, and closing on our new home next summer.
- Jenn Dennis
It was an absolute pleasure working with Gary and Elaine. They were extremely knowledgeable and professional at all times. They made an extra effort in preparing the house, which was vacant at the time, for sale, and facilitated an out of state closing process, which really could not have gone smoother. I really appreciated their prompt communication and their tactful negotiating style. They are both great Realtors and outstanding people to work with. Thanks to them both!

My selection of Elaine Collins as my broker for the sale of my Boulder property was quite simple. Elaine's track record speaks for itself. In addition, she brings a long-standing knowledge of the Boulder community as well as specific neighborhood characteristic. She understands the many factors that influence the sale price of a home especially in a fast-changing market and the manner in which to offer a fair deal to both seller and buyer... She is prepared, pleasant to all participants and productive in terms of outcomes. It has been an extraordinary pleasure to work with Elaine Collins. Whenever my needs call for a real estate broker in Colorado, I will be calling Elaine!

It is my pleasure to recommend Mr. Gary Collins to represent you in your next real estate transaction. He has successfully helped me and my wife buy and sell several personal properties in the Denver/Boulder area. Professionally, my company selected Gary to handle all senior level new hire and employee relocations into our Boulder headquarters. Simply said, Gary is the best real estate professional I’ve worked with anywhere.
- Tom Soper
We just finished the process of selling our home in Table Mesa, and it was the most satisfying of any of the 15 buy/sell real estate transactions that we have experienced. Our experience with Elaine and Gary could not have been better.
