"UNDERSTANDING, PATIENT AND RESPONSIVE"
Jared is amazing! A few months ago, we bought and closed on our first house (a new build) with his guidance. Rather than pushing for a sale, Jared's primary goal was to advocate for us.
As first-time homebuyers, we were intimidated by the process and told him that we would need to learn everything from the ground up. Jared was very understanding, patient, and responsive (calls, texts, and emails). He was very knowledgeable and transparent about the home-buying experience, and we felt he did everything in his power to make sure we were equipped with all of the info we needed to be confident in our decisions.
He was timely and professional every time we met with him and any selling agents/New Build salespeople together. We saw around 24 houses in 3 separate trips on the weekends, and the 3 of us debriefed after each house tour and at the end of each day. He's so easy to get along with - charming, funny, and incredibly thoughtful - that we always looked forward to meetings and house tours with him. On top of that, he was very organized and detail-oriented.
We loved his practical and systematic approach to home-buying; it made the entire process super seamless. We are so glad he was there to guide us and answer all of our questions. You know someone is very skilled and good at their job when he can anticipate your needs before you can even think to ask for it. Highly recommend Jared as your agent!

"JARED WAS AWESOME IN DIRECTING US TO THE RIGHT PEOPLE"
My elderly aunt moved out of her home and out of state into a nursing home. Jared was awesome in directing us to the right people to clear out her house and get it ready to show. He was very patient with us, the house sold quickly and for a great price!

"GUIDED US THOROUGHLY THROUGH EVERY STEP"
Jared is a FANTASTIC realtor. My partner and I were first time home buyers and had LOTS to learn about the process – Jared guided us thoroughly through every step of the way (from questioning if we want to buy vs. rent, to finding and touring homes and noticing nuances of each, to interpreting & unpacking the inspection and financing, to signing our closing paperwork). He is incredibly knowledgeable, has a teacher’s heart (and an engineer’s brain), personable, has a great sense of humor, and brought a level of humanness to a very stressful and overwhelming process. He is incredibly responsive and delivers information in a digestible manner (esp. for us newbies!). He really helped make a very stressful process fun, enjoyable, and connecting. I would highly recommend Jared to anyone looking to buy or sell a home.

"HELPED US PERSEVERE THROUGH A DIFFICULT MARKET"
Jared helped my partner and I buy a townhome recently, and we couldn’t have asked for a better Realtor. From the very beginning, he was generous with him time and energy and answered all of our first home buying questions. He also held a lot of space for our emotions – whether it was nervousness, excitement, fear, or anticipation. Jared never judged us – he only encouraged us and helped us persevere through a difficult Northern Colorado market! He was very knowledgeable about the neighborhoods and homes of Fort Collins, especially with his unique engineering background. My partner and I cannot thank Jared enough for helping us find the perfect place to call home!

"AN EXPERT AT WHAT HE DOES"
Jared is an excellent Realtor and someone I would strongly recommend! He’s highly communicative, responsive, and helpful. Jared is not only enjoyable to do business with, he’s an expert at what he does. He knows the exact amount of information to share and ask for each step of the way in order to minimize the feeling of overwhelm, and bring a sale to a smooth close.

"WILLING TO GO THE EXTRA MILE"
Jared is great real-estate professional who made our home buying experience easier and less stressful than we anticipated. We interviewed several strong real estate agents from the Fort Collins area, and found that most of them were “busy but willing to fit us in”. That level of service was not enough for us! Ultimately, we selected Jared not only for his knowledge, experience and qualifications, but also because he made us feel like he truly wanted our business and that we would be a priority for him. And he proved it all along the way with his responsiveness, attention to detail, and willingness to go the extra mile.
We selected to build a new house in Fort Collins. Because we were living in a different state, Jared was our local eyes and ears during the 9-month construction process. He went to the design center and helped us with selection of materials, colors, and options for the house, while we were attending via Zoom. He visited the construction site regularly, sent us photos of the house as it was being built, and pointed out potential issues to bring up with the builder. And even after the closing, he continues helping us to oversee another contractor while they finish the basement prior to our move-in. Jared has a wealth of local knowledge and provided us with helpful advice on everything from builders and contractors to lending and insurance. And his optimistic, easy-going attitude made the entire experience both educational and fun.

"GREAT COMMUNICATOR, RESPONSIVE, KNOWLEDGEABLE, COMPASSIONATE"
Jared has been my trusted advisor on 2 home purchases and sales. Jared took the time to meet my wife and children, understand what was important to our family, and help us find the home that best fit our criteria. A consummate professional who is experienced, a great communicator, responsive, knowledgeable, compassionate, patient and trustworthy. Jared makes buying or selling a home easy and fun! I’ll never choose another real estate agent. Thank you Jared!

"PROMPT, PERSISTENT AND KNOWLEDGEABLE"
We want to take this opportunity to thank Jared for the superior job he did finding our perfect investment property. During a time when properties were being snatched up the same day they were listed, Jared was very prompt when alerting us of potential properties so we could make a quick move. He was persistent and we found the perfect townhome we could invest in and in a super location in Fort Collins. Without Jared’s knowledge of Fort Collins neighborhoods AND our needs, we could not have acquired the property we did. Jared was able to find a renter in a timely manner which was the icing on the cake. We would strongly recommend Jared to any future home buyers.

"EXTREMELY KNOWLEDGEABLE AND TRUSTWORTHY"
I can’t say enough good things about my experience working with Jared. I was referred to him by a friend and immediately felt comfortable. He was very well-informed and helpful and wasn’t pushy at all. As we went through the process of making an offer and approaching the closing date, he was always one step ahead with information about what to expect next. Jared is extremely knowledgeable and trustworthy. I can’t recommend him highly enough!

"HE MADE THIS THE EASIEST PROCESS"
I cannot recommend Jared enough! I had to manage my father’s estate in Colorado from Los Angeles. I was stressed out, grieving, overwhelmed and had no idea about selling a house. Jared walked me through ever single step, was very honest about what work we needed to put into the house to get the most value (all the other Realtors I spoke to did not do this). He put me in touch with many people who helped me get the property ready. All helpful and cost conscious. He made this the easiest process and I can’t imagine having done it without him. Once the house was listed, we wrapped everything super quickly. If you need someone to sell your house, he is the person for the job!

"ABOVE AND BEYOND"
Jared has been our Realtor for two house purchases and one sale. In all three instances, he’s gone above and beyond the call. My wife and I recently moved back to Fort Collins from the East coast. Jared suggested options, went to newly listed properties to check suitability, and was never out of reach. I’m a big believer in hiring pros at what they do – Jared is a pro and will be our first contact if and when we need his services again.

"ENGAGING AND RESPONSIVE"
My wife and I were relocating to Colorado in late 2019 from the East Coast. During our search for a rental house, we contacted every major player in the Northern Colorado market. We were told by several companies that they would not rent to us since we were out of state even though we could provide a relocation letter from my company, confirmed salary information, etc. A majority of the big rental companies in Northern Colorado we left messages for NEVER called us back.
Due to a very short timeline, we were under an enormous amount of pressure to find a rental home and an apartment just wouldn’t work for us. During our search, we found a listing managed by Jared. We held our breaths and made the call and to our surprise (pleasantly) Jared answered the phone. We first asked if he would talk to us since we were out of state and he said of course he would. We were beyond delighted. While the rental we originally inquired about was way too small, Jared let us know about a property that was coming up soon that may fit our needs. He sent us pictures, specs and everything we needed to know about the property. We did our research on the neighborhood, area, etc and the rest is history. Over the course of our 21 months in Jared’s rental property, he was engaging, extremely responsive and just an overall outstanding landlord.
Thank you Jared for answering our call that day almost 2 years ago. You made our transition to Colorado an enjoyable experience.
