What Our Clients Say:

A little Information Regarding My Experience

I wanted to take a moment to put into writing a little information regarding my recent experience with your Real Estate Team.

First let me point out that I am very experienced in real estate transactions myself, having negotiated, bought, sold and leased both residential and commercial properties all over the U.S. for decades now.  I’ve used dozens of different real estate firms and agents over the course of these transactions in cities all over the U.S.  Truth be told, the vast majority of realtors I’ve selected have done a very good job for me.

I believe in the overwhelming sea of potential real estate agents a buyer or seller can select for their transaction – that it’s very difficult for one team to distinguish itself or what they promise to bring to the table that’s ‘different’ or ‘better’ than what any other potential realtor promises during the interview process.  Much of the technology is the same, websites, search engines, pictures, property tours, etc.  Most promises, verbal commitments, marketing materials, etc. offered before the listing or buyer’s agent contract is signed are similar or basically the same.  It’s what happens AFTER the agreement is signed that makes an experience exceptional and separates the similar promises from the reality of the experience.

THIS is where the Wheaton Team simply stood out far above and beyond any other realtor experience I’ve ever had.  I researched for weeks, narrowed down and interviewed 4 of the top performing real estate teams in Colorado Springs before choosing The Wheaton Team as my listing agents.  Though the entire Wheaton team was fantastic, the vast majority of my interactions were with John Wheaton.  There is no way to express in this letter the level of service, commitment and ‘above and beyond expectation’ efforts that John provided.  The entire time my home was listed, I lived 2000 miles away and was very limited in what I could add to the sales process.  I was not there to prep, stage, secure or even clean the home.  I was completely dependent upon finding the right agent to handle this complex process and juggle vendors for me.  John owned the project flawlessly for me from start to finish.  He provided a level of responsiveness, conscientious care of my property, staging, oversight, vendor suggestions and on numerous occasions, personal elbow grease that went so far beyond what would normally be expected or required of a listing agent that I actually felt guilt over his efforts.  I can’t even enumerate the details of all he did beyond what would be expected of a listing agent.  Even given all the extra effort, at NO time was I ever pressured to lower a listing price, to shorten the time frame, or to take any offer that wasn’t absolutely in MY best interest.  The theme was always, we will be here to do as much as it takes, for as long as it takes to get the home sold for you.

In short – it can be overwhelming for a home seller to pick one realtor or team over the endless options and teams out there competing for the listing.  And it’s difficult for any team to say anything or promise anything different to the home seller during the interview to secure the listing.  But after the listing contract is signed, the Wheaton Team is simply better on delivering the goods.  They are far and away the best realtors I’ve ever used.  You’ve earned my business for life and I just CANNOT recommend you highly enough to ANYONE in Colorado Springs who’s trying to narrow down the field and choose a real estate team!

Thank you so much Jean, John and crew!  You’re the best there is.

Cassidy did a great job findings our home. Very responsive to our calls, and listened to our wish list in a home (it was a long list). Also very helpful after the sale helping us with repairs on the home as we live out of state. Hope to visit with her again on our return to Colorado Springs.

Unique Challenges

“Jean creatively navigated several unique challenges that occurred during the sale of our home. Jean and her team are very helpful, professional and responsive.”

Jeff & Janice Kidd

Jean Wheaton Sold Two Properties For US

“Jean Wheaton sold two properties for us within the last two years. The first was our home in Monument CO. We first had it listed with a different agent/different company, and in three month’s time we had very few lookers. We relisted, this time with Jean and her team. She did an in depth analysis of how it should be priced and listed; she hired a staging company to advise us on how to stage the home, and she hired a professional real estate photography company to create the web presentation needed to attract buyers. We had an overwhelming response in three days, during the Christmas holidays; we had showings waiting in line to view our home. And we got multiple offers, and we got more for the property than we ever expected. The second property Jean sold for us was an unimproved residential lot also in Monument CO. Again, she gave us great advice on what we could realistically expect to get for the property. She knows the market, knows builders in the area and what is valuable to them. Besides listing the property, she specifically marketed to builders in our area. Jean and her team are professionals that really took care of us. They have our highest recommendation.”

Thank you Cassidy Jones

I would like to take this opportunity to thank Cassidy Bowdish Jones for assisting us with the purchase of a home located at 1609 Yellow Tail Drive.  I called on a property that was not the house we purchased and Cassidy was on phone duty.  She promptly scheduled an appointment for us to view the house.  Cassidy was early for the appointment and well prepared with all the house information. We were impressed by her for saying that she wanted to earn our business and was not aggressive to schedule more showings.
We developed a trust with Cassidy as she searched for homes to meet our criteria.  Her instinct to listen is a wonderful skill.  We found a house that met our requirements and Cassidy helped us negotiate the offer with professionalism and knowledge.  She has been very committed in making certain that everything is done properly.  Cassidy exceeded our expectations for purchasing the home with her continuous involvement in the home buying process.  She is always easily accessible by email, phone or text to answer questions and is very knowledgeable and friendly.
Cassidy is an asset to your team and we will recommend her to our friends and family.  Please thank her for an outstanding home buying experience.
Sincerely,
Sharleen and Glenn Leimbach

Kim and Jackie Carlson

Thanks so much for the professional and well executed job you did with the recent sale of our home in Higby Estates. Thanks for all your efforts on our behalf. Rest assured, if anyone asks us if we know of a good real estate agent in the area, based upon our experience, the ‘Wheaton Team’ will receive ‘rave reviews’ from us.

Larry and Nancy Young

We recently completed our second transaction through Jean Wheaton and were, once again, very pleased with the outcome. Jean is very knowledgeable of market conditions, an excellent communicator and a tireless worker. On top of that, she’s a delightful person to work with. She will always be our realtor and we couldn’t recommend her more highly.

Janet McDaniel

If you want the best of the best, this is definitely the team you will select! They are hard working, always available and willing to assist with whatever you need. My husband and I have worked with many different realtors in several states over the years – Jean and John Wheaton are the very best.

Robert and Sue Grant

Many thanks for your outstanding service surrounding the recent sale of our home in Monument, Colorado. Your knowledge of the local real estate market helped us to identify the right price. The Wheaton team provided great advice for presenting our home well, including photographs which conveyed the unique features offered at our residence on the Internet. Your experience and expertise resulted in the sale of our home in just six weeks after listing. The attention to detail and regular communication helped us to maximize efforts for a successful sale during a challenging sellers market. The reputation of The Wheaton Team for exceptional service and extraordinary results is well deserved.

Anthony and Inger Bull

Jean was fantastic – patient & friendly – genuine & professional. Couldn’t have asked for a better agent.

Nancy Carlock

I feel that Jean understands the market in our area. Her stager was very helpful.

Diane Williams

Mrs. Wheaton did an outstanding job! She handled the closing with my sister acting as my power of attorney while I was in NV – it went very smoothly!

Gwynne & Margaret Williams

We are extremely pleased with the success of the sale of our home on Higby Estates. The sale was accomplished within an very short time, taking only 6 days from launch to be under contract, and this amidst a slow market such as is being experienced in the spring of 2011! The success is a testament to the high quality and thorough approach from the Wheaton Team. We interviewed three candidate Realtors before deciding on the Wheatons. The factors in that decision were: • A consistent and solid approach to the pricing of the property. • A well prepared website presence, including both a photographic virtual tour, and the “interactive layout” tool that tied the photographs to the room plan. This really helps people to appreciate the appearance and flow of the property layout. • Very personable, friendly, and clear communications in all aspects with ourselves, their clients, and the prospective property buyers and their respective realtor agents. • A solid reasoning for the timing of the market launch, and the pricing to bracket as many “search engine” enquiries as possible. • As the sale progressed to successful closure, we subsequently experienced the team depth to cover the detail of the many aspects including property survey, corrective actions, paperwork etc. The whole cycle, market launch to closure, was accomplished in a remarkable 34 business (M-F) days. We strongly recommend the Wheaton Team.

Cher Johnson

Jean and her team were very helpful and always available for my questions and concerns.

Kris and Dick Klein

The Wheatons were great partners during the whole process. While adept at navigating the soft real estate market, their true value came from the harrowing process between contract and close. We appreciated their diligence, that of their assistant, Colleen and, most of all, their friendship.

Beau & Ginger Seymore

The Wheaton Team was always available to answer questions. I always felt that I was their only client, never did I feel unimportant. I will use the Wheaton Team again!

Dennis & Rory Dolfi

We could not have been happier with Jean & John – they are not only great realtors but wonderful people.

Eric & Mimi Simmons

Jean and John, thanks for the recent letter and a copy of the settlement statement for our 225 Woodmoor Drive property. This is just another testimony of your attention to detail, and going above and beyond what is the norm or the expected of one of your clients. We have really appreciated the professional manner of business acumen and going the extra mile for us, the seller, and also staying on top of both sides of the sales transaction, as well as all details up to and including the closing! I have been involved in the sales and marketing side of business all of my professional career, and have rarely seen the professional level of activity that the two of you bring to the same process for RE/MAX. It is apparent why the Wheaton Team is among the Top for RE/MAX in Colorado Springs… We hope all is well with you both.

David Mills

Jean’s the best. No question. I was extremely pleased with the way you handled the sale of my home in Monument. Since Carole and I had lived in that home for twenty-six years, I was completely ignorant regarding real estate and the current procedures. You made the whole process easy. You provided accurate advice. You acted professionally, but you were delightful to work with. You made me feel comfortable. Your interior decorator provided excellent service. Your photographer really made the house shine. Colleen provided timely assistance. Best of all, you sold the house quickly and at a satisfactory price. I’d be most happy to chat with prospective clients and tell them what a great team you make. Thanks for your excellent work.

Leona Lacroix

John & Colleen (the assistant) went the extra mile to get my offer in the day was leaving town. Jean was available to let me in the home when I needed to check something, and she worked hard to make sure the major items noted by the inspector were corrected before closing. I have already recommended her to friends as a knowledgable, preferred realtor.

Heather Inglis

Jean Wheaton is a phenomenal sales associate! We have never worked with such a knowledgable, helpful, caring real estate agent before! Because of her hard work and commitment to us, she found us the house of our dreams.

Bruce & Shirley Cadle

Jean & John Wheaton are two of the very best. We very much appreciated them throughout our home search.

Carriann and Tony Arkowski

An asset to Re/MAX, an asset to the Real Estate Market! Jean was unbelievable. Professional, fun, knowledgeable. Thank you!

Wayne and Terri Keast

John and Jean were wonderful! We are military and they did everything they could when the military decided that it was time for us to move and gave us only a couple of months to get ready for our new location. The advertising was top quality, generating many showings on our home. When we had to move before the house was sold, the Wheatons took good care of the property and kept us updated on all activity. Thanks to John and Jean, we got our home sold. I would highly recommend them as realtors.

Charlyn Iuppa

I can’t tell you how pleased I am with the services Jean recently provided in the sale of our home. We had never sold a home before and was worried about the prospects of selling in this market. We followed your advice to make our home presentable and had a contract 10 days after listing. We were prepared for the house to be on the market for several months and the quick sale is an attribute to your professionalism and good work. I am extremely happy with the results and will not hesitate to refer others in the real estate market to you.

Kim & Anita Kokkonen

We relocated from the Colorado Springs area for new employment and listed our house with the Wheaton Team. John and Jean and the rest of the team were marvelous about helping with tasks we couldn’t handle long distance. And they were tenacious about getting the place sold in this tough market. Two thumbs up!

Kate Horton, Admin Lead of WIA (Woodmoor Homeowners Association)

Jean and John Wheaton are a professional team with a goal of getting your home sold, or helping you purchase a home. They know the market and respond accordingly. They bring in a stager and have your home measured and put fantastic pictures on the Internet. This team works the property until they achieve results. I was amazed throughout the entire short process. They are awesome.

John and Suzanne Robinson

Wheaton’s team is an excellent realtor and was wonderful to work with. Wheaton’s team did everything within her power to sell our home, including multiple forms of advertising, follow-up calls to every prospect, and networking with realtors locally and nationally. Her cheerful and energetic approach was not only pleasant to work with, but contributed to her success. Wheaton’s team is very honest and doesn’t shy away from any task necessary to get her job done. We appreciated everything she did for us as a realtor and count her as a friend.

Jennifer and Richard Mendoza

We interviewed multiple agents. We chose John because they really did their homework and could justify their comps and price range for listing our house. Their marketing was great. We had an incredible number of showings and a contract within 60 days.

Ellie & Lou Matarazzo

Lou and I want to thank you for all your hard work in finding us our new home in Colorado Springs. Your professionalism, determination, patience and willingness to please were evident in everything you did. Your knowledge of the area and the real estate market was immeasurable and your honesty and integrity are the key to your success. Most of all your personality made it a joy rather than a chore to go house hunting. We had fun and I hope you did too. Please know that if we hear of anyone needing a realtor we will certainly recommend you. I hope we will always keep in touch. Also thank Mary Kay for all her assistance. You are a great team and I know John is now a great asset also.
