She also provided very useful insight and advice that made the home buying process smooth and and gave us confidence in our decision. We would absolutely recommend Jon and or Jacque to anyone looking to buy a home in the northern Colorado area. Sincerely, Collin and Wendi Horvat"

• "Jon Holsten and Jacqueline Feil brought honesty, integrity, and experience to the table. We felt confident in his ability to guide us on our first home buying experience. It made the experience enjoyable and, to be honest, easy. His recommendations got us the contract on the house we wanted, even though there were multiple bids, some higher than ours! Want to know how? Give him a chance and he will devote himself to get you the house you want."

• "A good friend referred Jon to us as we were moving from out of town. After spending time with Jon we figured out we needed a ranch style home that needed to be in the Windsor school district. There were only three available. While we were talking Jon asked to make a phone call. He called his in-laws in Windsor and asked if we could do a walk-through in a couple of minutes. They said yes. We saw their home with the in-laws still at home and we loved the builder and the layout. In short order we met with the builder with Jon and we got the home of our dreams. Jon encouraged us to asked for some upgrades free. The freebee saved us $2000. The builder finished on the day they committed to deliver and we're in our new home ... thanks to Jon."

I've recommended him to anyone I know looking for a realtor, and will continue to do so. He is great, and whatever The Group is paying him is not enough for the work he does for his clients."
