Client Testimonials

This is the second house Carolyn has helped us buy, and I have to say that it is very comforting to know that someone with her expertise is in your corner providing great advice and walking you through the process. I hold the people I work with to a high standard, and I recommend Carolyn to anyone who is looking for a home.

- Nick and Courtney Jennings

Alex is amazing! His honesty and integrity put him ahead of the game as an agent. We will not hesitate to use him again.

- Sarah Hockensmith

James was a fantastic agent. He is the sole reason we got our home, that we love. He was always willing to talk and give advice. We were lucky to have him represent us.

- Jordan N.

Can't say enough about Jesse, this is my second real estate transaction with them and they are truly great professionals. Always available and much experience in negotiating the twists and turns that are always present in buying and selling a home. I highly recommend C3, give them a shot, you won't be disappointed.

- Jeff and Val Dyar

I was so impressed with James Hagerman as I purchased a property during July 2014, that I enlisted him as the sales agent of my home. He was plain and simply FANTASTIC! I have lived in the Fort Collins area since 1978 and have worked with or attempted to work with many real estate agents and none of them were as attentive to my needs as James. He is trustworthy, hard working, knowledgeable and extremely easy to work with. I recommend him whole hardheartedly.

- Mark M.

Jesse and his team were great to work with while selling our house. This was our first house and he worked great with us since the process was new to us. We hope to end up back in NoCo at some point and when we do we will absolutely call up Jesse for our real estate needs.

- Michael Stanley

We could not have been happier with Mike's service. Through his hard work, he made our million dollar dream home become a reality. He showed us many homes on short notice and his insight into local markets led us to make the right choice.

As a former colleague of Chrissy’s, I’ve benefited directly from her strong work ethic and ability to work under pressure. Chrissy always came to the table with fresh, innovative and timely ideas. She has the enviable ability to relate to people on a personal level. This is a trait that is invaluable to any client she works with. 

- Noel B.

Best service in northern colorado I would highly recommend jesse and c3. Jesse did a great job getting our home sold quickly and efficiently. Thank you jesse

- Elliott Finkelstein

Lindsay Chacon was extremely professional- she was helpful in assisting us with all of our deadlines.

- Robert and Andrea Collins

My wife, Jenna and I had the pleasure of working with Shawn and Kari Harger through the process of purchasing our new home in August of 2015. From the first introduction all the way through closing, both of them were very involved and professional. They listened intently to our needs and desires  while searching for a new home. Each listing and showing they provided to us met our exact criteria, thus making it very easy to make a final selection. Even through the challenging market of Fort Collins, Colorado they were on top of every detail to ensure our offer was acknowledged as soon as possible. Their expertise extended far beyond the just the client/realtor relationship, Kari even provided us with a detailed list of her recommendations for services such as loan officers, title companies, movers, cleaning services, etc. It is this type of attention to detail that sets Shawn and Kari Harger apart from the rest of the flock. From being readily available on a moments notice, all the way through a follow-up visit at our new place 2 weeks after we moved in their expertise and engagement with us was first class all the way. As a result of our professional business in finding a new home, we found a personal relationship that will last for years to come. Based on my experience with Shawn and Kari Harger, I highly recommend them as realtor when buying or selling a new home. Thank you Shawn and Kari

- The Brannocks

Lindsay was very "on-the-ball" when it came to the paperwork and being in communication with the lender, seller's agent, and us! It was a pleasure working with her. She put in a lot of hours, even late into the evening helping us. 

- Tim and Cydnie

I wouldn’t consider buying or selling a house again without Jesse and his C3 entourage. Ever step of the way, every little to big question, every concern that arose was quickly and meticulously addressed. The attention to detail and kind demeanor, lending support throughout the process was  above and beyond what I have ever experienced in my previous buying and selling of homes. I recommend C3 and Jesse Laner without reservation to any individual or family looking to buy or sell a home. My experience is proof that not only are they a great group of people, but they get the job done too!

- Lisa Robben

Benjamin was very thorough in his handling of the sale of our house. We loved working with him and appreciated his attention to detail, his understanding of everything pertaining to the sale, and his enthusiasm in working with us. He was immediate with all of the communications back and forth, very willing to come to us for meetings, spent a lot of time in researching comparable housing pricing, and was quick to get back with us if we had any needs or questions. We highly recommend Benjamin as a man of integrity and high character, and believe that you will not be disappointed should you choose him to help you with your real estate needs! 

- Dan and Sandi McConnaughey

Since my first connection, working with Mr. Jason Grentz, he consistently provided helpful guidance through the buying process. I always felt I could reach out to him with questions and he would quickly reply. He proved to be straight-forward, truthful and thoughtful with his explanations and information. I would definitely reach out to Jason to be my realtor again, next time I am in the market.

- Sherri Wainwright

John Simmons - Very personable, detailed, pay attention to your needs. They are on top of deadlines and documents and willing to go the extra mile. They did an AWESOME job at listing our home and getting an offer that we excepted within 1 day of being on the market. Did awesome pictures and open house. couldnt  have asked for anything more. Alsodid a tremendous job negotiating the purchase of our new home! Awesome team at C3!

- Tobias Kane

Brian is a great realtor and has helped us buy a condo, sell our condo and buy a home in the last 2 years. Him and his staff are always quick to respond and got us a showing at every house we wanted to see. Brian and his team do not pressure you into buying and always have your best interest in  mind. Brian always gave us his honest opinion and had an answer to every question we asked him. I would highly recommend Brian and his team.

- Stevie Renken

Chrissy is incredible! She was such an integral part of my home buying process. From helping me define the elements I wanted in a home, to tirelessly searching for the right house, Chrissy worked so hard to help me buy my first home in a fast-paced market. She made me feel like I was her only client, and was so patient with me as I navigated buying a home. She is a great realtor - honest, committed, thoughtful - and her personality is radiant! She has great connections in the Fort Collins community and was eager to work hard for me. I am so grateful Chrissy was by my side and I absolutely recommend her without question to any potential prospective home buyer.  

- Nicole A

I have used Carolyn LaMaster to both purchase and sell homes. I have used other realtors in the past and would be hard pressed to find another realtor that is more knowledgeable in her profession and that works as hard as she does at being a professional realtor. I personally hope I never have to use anyone else and would recommend Carolyn to anyone I know or meet that needs a realtors service. 

- Rodney Hooley

Our C3 realtor, Jesse Laner, was phenomenal! He was very thorough and helpful to us as first time home sellers. Jesse guided us and gave solid advice on the process and options of selling a house. In our area. We had good contact with others within the C3 company who assisted with managing the  process and getting our home ready for sale. Everything from the showing to the sale and closure went very well and we would highly recommend Jesse and C3 as realtors for the Loveland, CO area.

John is the master of creative and extensive marketing, including open houses, magazine ads, color ads in the Living magazines and a beautiful color brochure. He sold our house quickly and professionally.

Working with Will was excellent. He guided us through the sale of our previous home in an incredibly fluid market and then was able to find us the perfect situation for our new home. The development Will suggested for our new house was something we never would have thought of but once he showed it to us we knew it was the perfect spot. Anytime there were issues or questions he was very responsive and his advice was extremely helpful. 

- Zach and Amy Mikash

Lindsay did a great job selling our house. The process went very smooth.

- Douglas
Brian is a truly passionate, intelligent, resourceful and motivated realtor. He went above and beyond with ensuring the sale of my house was finalized. He bought me restoration oil for my hardwood floors, he always consulted with me about every decision or request before putting anything into  action, and he communicated by every source depending on what worked best for me. (Phone, email, text, in person meeting) He gave me the information and tools I needed to succeed and I appreciate his expertise and attention to detail with our business transaction.


- Rachel Sharon

The Kiwi is the best! My home-search parameters were pretty specific, but he managed to find me a place before it went on the market, so I was able to make an offer without having to compete against 20 other people in a super competitive, 'sellers' market. I know that making an offer before  listing, in general, isn't available to everyone, but there's no way I would have found my home without his help. He was also responsible for referring me to a loan program, which provided assistance for my income bracket. He is clearly very knowledgeable about the industry, the community, and fairness. I will seek him out when I buy my next home.

- Laura Kincannon

I’ve had the pleasure of knowing Chrissy both professionally and personally.  Chrissy has the natural knack for listening to people, understanding their needs, and genuinely cares about helping them reach their goals.  Her creative mindset combined with passion for people make her a go-to resource for guidance in almost any situation.  She is always willing to dive in and help no matter what, love her!

- Courtney

Monique Parker was terrific to work with! We bought our home from out of state, so correspondence was critical and Monique was always very quick to respond to all our emails, texts and phone calls. She helped guide us through the process of buying in a very hot market, quickly showing us houses as soon as they were listed and then helping us to determine a competitive but fair offer. Super friendly and easy to talk to – you definitely want her in your corner when purchasing a home!

- Debi Taylor

Mike was AWESOME!! He really took a lot of time to help us find the perfect home for our family. We were working with a Rural Development Loan which has some very particular requirements and strict time lines. Mike was patient and answered all our questions. He walked us through the whole process  and even went the extra mile and went our of his way to make sure all parties were satisfied with the transaction. I would definitely recommend Mike to anyone looking for a great realtor and fun person to work with

The experience working with C3, specifically Jesse, was awesome! He was always quick to respond to any questions I had and went above and beyond to help me buy a terrific home! He made the entire process so easy! I would recommend C3 to anyone buying or selling a house!

Mr. Will Malizia assisted me in selling my home turning what would have been a difficult process into a joy. He was the most knowledgeable, friendliest, and efficient agent I have ever worked with. I would recommend Mr. Malizia without any hesitation. 

- Dennis Doswell

It was an absolute pleasure to work with Carolyn! Her knowledge and expertise of the current market conditions was spot on! She kept me informed on a daily basis of showings as well as any issues that arrived throughout the entire process of selling my home. My experience was extremely positive and I highly recommend Carolyn. I would use her services again in a heartbeat!

- Stephanie Griebe

C3 Real Estate is wonderful to work with! Jesse Laner sold our home for us and had it under contract in less than two weeks. Great people - great company!

- Penny Gartrell

Travis is an amazing and knowledgeable agent. He knew the market and found us a house before it hit the Internet in the very competitive Northern Colorado market. We had a very easy and comfortable experience with him. He's patient, compassionate, and you can tell he loves what he does. We love the house he found for us. It's like a dream come true and we consider him a family friend now. We highly recommend him to help your family find a dream house of their own.

- Derrick

John Simmons and his Staff.... from marketing, service, process to closure on the sale of our home in Fort Collins, Co. was beyond excellent. With over 40 years of residency in N. Colorado along with dealing with many local business entities...... my wife and I will refer the professional services of the C3 Real Estate solutions to family, friends and our business network. Thank you again

- James and Eunice Michalka

This is the 2nd time we had Jesse as our broker and we love him and staff at C3. He is very concerned with personal needs and does all he can to get the job done for us! Couldn't be more happy with our experience!

- Deb Jeffryes

I have bought 8 properties in my life and this was by far the easiest and most pleasant experience by far. I knew what was going on every step of the way. His extensive knowledge of the market and understanding my wants was the reason I was able to find what I wanted on only the 2nd home I looked at and get the offer accepted on that house. Travis did many things other realtors have not done for me such as that he did all the work to find reputable contractors and gather offers for the potential repairs I wanted the sellers to perform on the home as part of the purchase negotiations. For the few things I needed to do, he gave me a step by step instruction email on what I needed to do before closing. He was not pushy and took the time to really listen to what I wanted and what my goals were which made me feel he really had MY best interest at heart. I would recommend Travis to anyone who needs to buy or sell a home. 

- Sherry

Carolyn was a phenomenal realtor. She kept nothing but our best interests in mind and delivered on every front. We told her what we were looking for, the price range in which we were trying to stay, and various other items. Unfortunately the selling party was difficult to deal with, but Carolyn handled everything quickly and professionally. In the end everything worked out in our favor thanks to Carolyn's persistence with the selling party and responsiveness. This was our first home buying experience and I'm glad we chose Carolyn to represent us. I would definitely choose her again.

- Jake and Olivia Thornton

Carolyn LaMaster has listed and completed sales on two properties for me in the Fort Collins area. Both properties were unique in both location and value, Carolyn was diligent in determining the best marketing strategy and listing price. As a client that was new to the real estate market Carolyn took the time to thoroughly educate me on the process and was always available to answer my question no matter how insignificant. She was able to make a profitable outcome on both of my properties in a very short period of time, and the paperwork process was completed without any delays. I will use Carolyn for all my future real estate transactions and have already and will continue to recommend her to friends and family.

- Leah Powers

Lindsay was awesome for helping us find our house. She was there with us for a year to track down the right one. 

- Jason and Kristin

If I could rank higher I would! Lindsay was exceptional. She was professional and friendly at the same time! She was always available to answer any questions or concerns we had. She helped us get our dream home! We are very grateful for her dedication and hard work! We recommend Lindsay and C3 Real Estate to everyone we know!

- O'Gorman Family

Todd, I just wanted to say thank you one more time for everything you have done for us. You were great to work with and made this a wonderful experience. Thank you for all of your patience and diligence in looking for the perfect home for us. I really appreciate everything you did, above and beyond what you needed to. Thank you for not making us feel rushed or pressured but for helping us find the perfect fit for us. I am so grateful that we found our home and we wouldn't have been able to do it without you. Thank you for everything and we will stay in touch!

- Collette Dewitt

Jason Grentz was an absolute pleasure to work with. Quick to respond to any calls or texts, available to view properties whenever we had the whim and very on point with his paperwork. Were it not for Jason Grentz staying on top of new homes hitting the market, the dream home we signed on yesterday could have gone unnoticed. Truly, if you want the smoothest experience go with Grentz!

- Andrew Wilson

Mike is a true professional and handled my real estate transaction with efficiency, professionalism and friendliness from beginning to end. I highly recommend choosing Mike to help you buy or sell a home. You won't regret it.

I cannot say enough positive things about Shawn and Kari. They walked us through every step of the way when it came to buying a home and selling a home. They are knowledgeable and are in constant communication with you. Even after you buy and/or sell your home, they check on how you are doing. Kari and Shawn care about their clients and will take the time to work with you and listen

- Andrew and Megan

“The entire team was very experienced and knowledgeable, their constant communication was refreshing. I would recommend them highly, you can have confidence in them, they will not place you in a compromising position. Thanks to the entire team, we love our home!

- Michelle

John and Jesse of C3 real estate were wonderful to work with. The whole buying and selling experience was great. You can tell they are committed to professionalism; from taking care of their crew, clients, and the whole buying and selling process. We would highly recommend C3 to anyone buying or  selling. We now call John and Jesse our friends. Thanks guys! You rock!

- Heather

I have nothing but greats things to say about Jesse and his staff at C3. Very responsive, very detailed, and were there for us. I would recommend C3 to anyone looking for a home. Thank you again to the team at C3

- Jarret Ruth

Wanna sell your NoCo luxury home fast? Look no further than John Simmons and his staff at C3. The C3 Team came up with a sales and marketing strategy plan for our property, they stuck by it, and our property sold in less time and for more $$$ than we expected.  Bottom line, C3 is the real deal!

Jesse Laner has patiently shown us dozens of large acreage properties in Larimer and Boulder Counties over the past 2 years. We had virtually given up, but Jesse never did. He found a unique large property in Larimer County that had all the right elements for us. So, we bought it. We could not have  asked for a more professional, patient, and hard working agent. Jesse's advice has always reflected his honesty first approach to business.

- Mark and Stephanie Anderson

Leslie, Dee, Peter and Ian are THE dream team to work with in real estate! From our first (and only!) house-scouting day to the closing table, our first time home buying process was incredibly smooth and easy thanks to their responsiveness, expertise and efficiency. Even their 3rd party referrals  for our inspection & mortgage lender were wonderful to work with. Clearly, they work with the best because they’ve got a standard of excellence in everything they do. We’re so thankful to have the NoCo Home Team in our corner.

- Jason and Wendy

The NoCo Home Team went out of their way to help us find a house in a difficult selling environment. They fought for us when we were really interest in a certain property. We would use no one else for our home buying needs.

- Justin

I love working with Mike, he is very professional and will make your experience of buying a home easy and enjoyable. I will use his service again if I ever need another house...

John Simmons - C3 does everything with excellence! It was a wonderful experience working with their team and we highly recommend them. We were first time seller's and they made the entire process easy from our end. They advertised our home widely and had offers in the first day and we were under contract very  quickly. We will definitely use C3 for our future needs.

Jesse was professional and Extremely easy to work with! We ran into some unique issues prior to closing with banks and he was nothing but helpful, supportive, and made sure we benefited in the end. we have had the same experience with anyone we’ve came in contact with from C3. I highly recommend  anyone from this company they’re the best!

- Todd Luther

This is our second home purchase and this experience was amazing compared to when we purchased our first home in 2010. Most of this is due to John Simmons and Jesse Laner and their dedication to their clients. We had the pleasure of working with both individuals during this home search, which made  the process seamless. Their honest feedback, knowledge of the market and overall professionalism made us confident when we went to move forward with a purchase. Whenever I have the opportunity to recommend them, I do! These are men with more than just business acumen; they are men of integrity and character, and it shows in how they treat their clients, co-workers and others in their industry. Head to C3 Realty today!

- Tim Heist

C3 is a classy organization. John Simmons is truly professional in every aspect. All of the associates and staff we interacted with were equally as professional so it is clear that C3 leadership focuses on detailed, responsive and professional dealings throughout the real estate transaction. The  team works diligently to turn the routinely chaotic process into a deliberate, well-planned event.

Great real estate team to be associated with. We were very impressed. I would highly recommend C3 Real Estate Solutions to anyone looking for a great real estate team. All agents were highly motivated during the open houses. John Simmons was very responsive to all our needs. Not only did we get a  very good real estate agent, we got a very good friend for life. He put together a very good marketing plan as well as a marketing analysis. His marketing analysis was 100% correct. If you want a very good, no GREAT, real estate team, give C3 Real Estate Solutions a call. You will not be sorry.

- Terry Gragale

We interviewed quite a few realtors that were recommended by friends. We were fairly confident in one realtor but hadn't interviewed John yet. As soon as we did, we were glad that we hadn't all ready decided. John had great energy, looked for details in the house to promote and was immediately  coming up with a marketing plan. We had a couple contracts fall through because of buyer financing issues, but he and his team kept working. Many open houses, brochures, great professional photography and countless hours behind the scenes lead to a closing at a price we were happy with. I will use them again and would encourage anyone to do the same

Alex helped us sell our home last summer. We are middle-aged people whose work requires us to move too often. We have bought and sold homes about a dozen times. Thus, we've worked with many agents over the years. We decided to go with Alex after interviewing several agents. What stood out immediately was his passion for the work. He loves what he does and gets excited about selling your home. He came up with excellent comps for our property, which was atypical, having acreage, water rights and an older, but pretty thoroughly remodeled and improved home. After studying the comps and relying on his experience and knowledge of the market, we were able to arrive at what we believe was the 'just right' asking price. Next, a designer (she was wonderful) came by to walk through and give us suggestions, tips to make the house photograph well and show well. Of course like most, I think I have excellent taste, haha, but I humbled myself and did everything the designer told me to do. Then I cleaned (throughout) like I was preparing for the Olympics of cleaning . Then, the photographer arrived. It's important to point out that Alex and C3 put quite a lot into selling your home, both time (we'd NEVER had a realtor spend so much time with us) and money. The photography was FIRST RATE. I can't tell you how wonderful the photography was. Just like Alex, the photographers were first class, professional and friendly. Alex wasted no time blasting our home across the Internet, all the major real estate sites (and many we'd never heard of). (Not every agent/agency does that, one might think they do, but they don't.) Alex is tech-savvy. He eats this stuff up, loves working to be on the cutting-edge in the business. It was a pleasure working with Alex throughout. His enthusiasm was contagious. He'd take our calls and be on the phone working for us late into the evening. He kept us up to speed on every detail, always concerned with making things go smoothly and working around our schedule. The whole experience was akin to flying in first class for the first time (which we don't do often, but you get the idea). I HIGHLY recommend Alex Alvarez. Thank you Alex Alvarez and God bless you. Also, God bless the folks who bought the home, wishing them every good thing.

- Lisa and Gary Fisher

We have bought AND sold our home with John Simmons from C3 Real Estate. Both experiences were very pleasant and easy! John knows this crazy northern Colorado market very well and because of that, we were able to receive multiple offers—most above asking price—in only four days of showings including  an Open House. The entire C3 team worked very hard to sell our home and we appreciated their constant communication throughout the process. We would (and have!) highly recommend John and the C3 team to anyone looking to buy in northern Colorado!!

Chrissy is an exceptional business partner in that her knowledge and experience is so varied in the real estate industry.  She continues to be helpful well beyond a transaction and because of her quality of service she continues to have clients for life!  Additionally,  Chrissy has expertise on the mortgage lending side which only enhances her effectiveness with the real estate transaction.   She has a contagious positive spirit and glowing smile which radiates to all she serves. Chrissy is committed to excellence with her clients, her business partners and her community.  I am so grateful to work alongside her!    

- Kirsten Johnson

We have been extremely happy with Carolyn LaMaster as our real state agent. We have used Carolyn to buy two houses and sell three. We have known Carolyn for over 30 years. 

- Deb and Mick Leighton

Monique Parker is Awesome! We have purchased and sold many homes as work has taken us around the country. Monique is without a doubt the most knowledgeable realtor we have experienced. She listened to everything we said and only showed us homes that truly met our criteria and priorities. Since we were looking to relocate from out of state, we had been so frustrated after home searching with different realtors for 2 years in this hot Colorado market, we had nearly decided not to move to Colorado. Luckily, we found Monique, and after working with her for one week, we closed on a home 45 days later. She held our hand every step of the way and spelled out everything that needed to be done.

- Carol Salander

James was great to work with. He was very open and responsive to our wants & needs. He made us feel comfortable through our first time purchasing a home. If we ever need an agent again, we will go to James.

- Shana E. and Melinda F.

Tim is very knowledgeable about the ins and outs of real estate and also the area. He did a great job in marketing our home with beautiful pictures and flyers and sold it in 2 weeks!

- Carol Paxton
