    I would highly recommend Monica to any one looking to buy a home or land in Chaffee county. Her attention to detail, and forward thinking especially when it comes to getting your offer under contract is unmatched. Hire a local, hire Monica.
    Ben gave Monica 5 stars out of 5
    It was truly a pleasure to work with Monica! As first-time homebuyers, we were initially intimidated by the process, but she put us at ease by explaining everything clearly and thoroughly. She helped us find the right house in a challenging market, and was a strong advocate for us during negotiations with the seller. Most of all, her positive, upbeat personality kept us optimistic throughout our home-buying experience.
    Cierra gave Monica 5 stars out of 5
    We worked with Monica on a land deal. It was the first time we were buying land in the BV area. She did a fantastic job from start to finish. She knew what she was doing and was able to direct us in every step of the way. Any questions she could not answer right away, she would research and get back to us in a timely manner. I give Monica a 10 out of 10 and would recommend her to anyone.

    She is the best agent ever and keeps to the budget you want to spend. Always helpful in finding homes and land in Colorado.
    Anna gave Monica 5 stars out of 5
    Monica is an absolutely fantastic real estate agent. We were first time home buyers and didn't know much about the process. She was able to quickly answer any questions that came up along the way. There are a lot of moving parts while buying a house (who knew?!) with deadlines, inspections, responses and replies. Whew! She was always very responsive and very thorough, making sure we never missed a detail and understood what we were looking at and why it was important. We had a couple of unexpected issues arise and she was happy to do the research to learn more in order to explain our options. She was also very flexible and accommodating with her time, which was helpful with hectic schedules. In short - I would highly recommend her to anyone. 5 stars!! Thank you Monica!!
    Mary gave Monica 5 stars out of 5
    As a first time buyer, I had so many questions and didn't know where to start. Monica did a great job walking my through every step and making sure I understood. She was very reliable and quick to respond. As a first time buyer, I was quite nervous and Monica was very helpful in calming those nerves. It was a pleasure working with Monica and I highly recommend her as a knowledgeable real estate agent in Chaffee County!
    Tyler gave Monica 5 stars out of 5
    Relocating back to Colorado from Virginia and Monica should earn points for degree of difficulty while helping us buy a home when we were unable to travel to physically see it. She quickly earned our trust by faithfully and diligently serving as our proxy. More importantly, she helped us find our dream home and, at less than list price. Given the summer 2021 Salida real estate market, she would have had an easier job finding a unicorn, but she somehow managed to pull it off. Could not be happier with Monica.
    Molly gave Monica 5 stars out of 5
    Monica was great explaining all the processes and helping us find a great home in a hard market!
    Tamela gave Monica 4 stars out of 5
    Monica helped us navigate the confusion of moving into a town we were mostly unfamiliar with. Friendly, helpful, and thoughtful. Monica was a great listener and coach during some of our times of frustration. Good person to have looking for a home for you!
    Kim gave Monica 5 stars out of 5
    We worked with Monica remotely and she was super responsive and willing to go out of her way to help us. One of the properties we were interested in was close to the Decker fire, and she went out of her way to check on road conditions and closures before we made the trip down. Monica is reliable, responsible, and honest, and I would recommend her to anyone looking for real estate help in the Salida/BV area.
    Jim gave Monica 5 stars out of 5
    It was a pleasure working with Monica. Very quick sale. We couldn't be happier.
    Andy gave Monica 5 stars out of 5
    Monica was amazing to work with. She was diligent, always prompt to respond, knowledgeable, friendly and happy to answer any and all questions I had. I was traveling a lot for work during my due diligence period, and Monica went above and beyond ensuring I had everything I needed. I look forward to working with her again.
    Connie gave Monica 5 stars out of 5
    Monica is a Great Realtor. She helped me with any questions i had. And she is very, patient, and professional. I would refer her to sell your home as she sold my neighbors, and mine super fast.
    Susie gave Monica 5 stars out of 5
    Monica was awesome! She patiently worked through two deals with us and never waivered in her commitment and professionalism. We didn't have a chance to meet her until the day of our closing, but that made no difference. Monica was always polite and responsive whenever we had a question or concern, and she stayed on top of deadlines. We are thrilled to recommend Monica to anyone who might be buying or selling property in the greater Salida area, and we will certainly use her the next time we do so. Thank you, Monica!
    Bill gave Monica 5 stars out of 5
    Although we walked into the office unannounced, Monica was very welcoming and spent well over an hour discussing local homes and land available. She took the time to find out what WE were looking for and placed us on an email service to show us properties. Once we found a lot we wished to purchase, Monica made the process easy and always had time to answer our questions. We finally own land in CO thanks to her!
    Lindsey gave Monica 5 stars out of 5
    Monica was a pleasure to work with. Her communication was thorough and clear. Always very quick to answer questions or get tasks taken care of. I really value her transparency, being frank about what she knew was so comforting for us as buyers. I think her openness to let us know when she did not have the answer and willingness to find the answers was as much as you could ask for from someone guiding us through the journey of buying a home. We set out with some pretty specific requests and needs and Monica was able to help us with all of our needs along the way. We were very grateful to work with her.
    Leslie gave Monica 5 stars out of 5
    I reached out to Monica, because I was very perplexed by the house buying process - this was my first time at the home rodeo. She patiently explained each step compassionately, carefully and thoroughly - making sure I understood the whole enchilada before we proceeded. Then when we agreed to go forth and look at "houses" in the area, she was a total sport - adventuring to places that looked straight out of Mad Max, checking out domes and sculpture-filled lawns and off-grid, out-of-the-way meccas. No request was denied and we had tons of fun along the way. Once I made my choice, Monica quickly got the process started, getting me a mortgage loan agent and negotiating and navigating documents, inspections, appraisals and title companies. She did all the work, while I just sat around. I had been told this process would be hellacious, but Monica made it seem fairly easy. When I enquired about adding the parcel next door to my land empire, she hopped right on it - tracking down the owners and negotiating a fair price for it. I owe my entire baron-hood to her. Seriously, I am eternally grateful for all of her help in getting me through this process - I couldn't have done it without her.
    Renee gave Monica 5 stars out of 5
    I would high recommend Monica McCarthy. Monica is professional and dedicated in assisting you as a home buyer. She promptly returns calls/emails and is quick to respond to any questions. Monica is attentive to vital details and also gives her expert advice and input during the process. Monica is genuine, and kind and is an excellent communicator. You can tell that she really cares about the clients that she serves. I would highly recommend Monica and give her a five star rating. I received stellar services!
    Kristin gave Monica 5 stars out of 5
    Monica is the best! We came from Texas looking for vacation land/home and she had several lined up when we came to town. We texted her constantly throughout the day when we looked on our own and she was so quick to respond and get details for us. The coolest thing was when we discovered a property AFTER we got back home and couldn't see it in person... Monica hiked up to the building envelope in the snow to take pictures and videos for us to see. It's the one we ended up buying and it was all because of her hard work. She helped negotiate the price down for us until we were happy and simply went ABOVE AND BEYOND for us! We loved meeting her, talking and texting with her through the entire three months that it took on our behalf to decide and finalize the deal. We couldn't have asked for a better realtor!
    Brenda gave Monica 5 stars out of 5
    Monica was amazing! We live out of state and she helped us find the perfect property. Every time I had a question, she sent me everything I needed to know.
