Elaine and Gary Collins

What Our Clients Are Saying

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

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

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

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!

Julie Giehl

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

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

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

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!

Nancie Fay

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.

Susan and Howard Winfree

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

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

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.

Vi Schweiker

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!

John Dolton

We have used Gary and Elaine Collins for seven Real Estate transactions in as many years. We have been both Buyer and Sellers as well as bought and sold condos and single family homes with them. In many transactions their professionalism, their knowledge of the Boulder Market and their vast experience has made a difference between a closed transaction and a lost one. Their ability to resolve sticky situations between parties by maintaining a calm and cool stance, offering multiple solutions and frankly, at times educating other Agents, has been nothing short of stellar.

Brian and Liz Cleveland

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.

Harold R.

“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

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

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…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. More important than the breadth of Elaine’s experience, knowledge and professionalism is who Elaine is as a person. She is an authentically considerate individual who demonstrates that she has the client’s best interest at heart at every turn.

Nancy Lewis

Elaine and Gary were easy to work with. They met our expectations in terms of lining things up and educating us on a difficult market. They went beyond just getting us a contact on a house, they also advised us on rentals, lined up a few places for us to see, and even helped a bit on the search for my office. All in all, they were good partners and I’m glad that we chose them.

Russell Meller

Elaine and Gary were great from start to finish. They went WAY above and beyond what was expected. I rate them an A++.

Sean Bezark

As a Realtor from the mountains, Gary and Elaine were very helpful to get my parents house sold and my mother transitioned into her next home. I have known Gary for many years through our real estate careers and when the time came to list my parents home, I knew that Gary and Elaine would be the right people to help me. The house needed some repairs and deferred maintenance and they were able to get me names of people who could help me get those items done. They worked smoothly through inspections and the closing and were able to get a couple issues solved and handled with the buyers, so we were able close on time! I would recommend the personal service of Gary and Elaine to anyone who is thinking of listing or buying a home in the Boulder area.

Janice & Lisa Bova

Gary and Elaine were exceptional throughout the sale process, from the first meeting to the close it was a true partnership. I wouldn’t hesitate a second to go with them again, whether buying or selling. Highly recommended!!

Dan Mondor and Kelly Rogers

Our house sold within 36 hours and I would trust Gary to buy/sell my home next time I am on the market to buy/sell!

Andreas Von Chamier

Gary and Elaine were extremely knowledgeable and helpful at every phase of the process.
