    My Client Testimonials

    Lestel has helped my family members and me sell and purchase homes several times. Her eye for detail and her knowledge of the sales market is excellent. She was on point with setting the sale price of our homes going on the market and worked hard to negotiate the best situation when buying. I very much appreciate how she takes care of all the little details and keeps us on track with deadlines, etc. She has extensive knowledge of neighborhoods and price trends in different neighborhoods. Lestel also took excellent care of us personally, was available for all our questions and responded to all our concerns. Buying a home in this market is very stressful, and I felt safe and protected with Lestel's support and knowledge. I definitely recommend Lestel Meade to anybody buying or selling a home. I will definitely ask her to represent us in the future. ~ Beverly Larson, Fort Collins
    Lestel came to me after a bad experience with another broker. She didn't make me feel bad about anything, explained things like what to expect & her plan of action thoroughly, and felt like a friend in a difficult transition for my family. She communicated well & kept me informed on what was going on. She most definitely had our best interest at heart. I would highly recommend her to any of my friends & family ~ Sheila Remington, Colorado
    Lestel Meade has gone above and beyond for us with our first home and now with our investment property. We have complete faith in her.

We couldn't ask for anything more!!! ~ Wayne Brungardt, Wellington
    Lestel explained how the process would go, kept us informed of all details, and answered any questions we had promptly. Lestel sold our home faster and for more money than we ever thought we could. She kept us informed of everything that was happening, always returned phone calls right away and answered any questions we had. To be honest we were surprised how easy and smooth everything with the sale of our home has been. Of course it is because of Lestel. ~ Valarie Kalish and John Morr Fort Collins
    We truly appreciated Lestel's guidance in making the offer on our house from afar, tact and diplomacy in handling the inspection follow-up and objection, and hustle to keep things moving smoothly from start to finish!

She helped me with home browsing buying in Fort Collins, while advising and helping move from Idaho to Colorado. She also found and interviewed my current realtor in Illinois, which is an excellent choice. Arthur ~ Arthur McGinnis, Illinois

    Lestel helped us buy and sell a house 16 and 12 years ago. She remembered me all those years, and was ready to help when I was finally able to look at purchasing a new home.

I would definitely work with Lestel, Cole and this office again, and would recommend them to others! ~ Natalie Fields, Fort Collins, CO
    Leste lMeade was so helpful to us in selling our home. I think what truly makes her exceptional is her gracious manner combined with professionalism. She answered all our questions thoroughly and promptly, and always made us feel we were in good hands. We could trust her advice and felt she had an excellent understanding of the Fort Collins market as well as the real estate business in general. The process was painless and efficient because of her attention to detail and diligence. I could not recommend her more highly. ~ Elizabeth and Stan Johnston
    Lestel helped us sell my mothers home which was down the street from us. She was recommended to us by a neighbor who had used her to sell their house a year prior. During our initial interview, I was impressed by her attention to detail as well as her understanding of the real estate market in our area, but it was her desire to understand our goals as sellers that really stood out to me. Her ability to freshen up the house with effective staging amazed me. Im very glad we had her by our side through what turned out to be a difficult and challenging sale made all the worse by the buyers agent. We almost walked away from a contract, but Lestel guided us through the challenges getting to the bottom of the issues and helping us see the bigger picture when we were mired down in emotions and details. Im very sure we would not have completed the sale of the home without her diligence, patience and support. Highly recommended. ~ Jeanie Sumrall-Ajero, Fort Collins, CO
    Lestel met me with several open houses and always made herself available to see houses on my schedule which made my house looking less stressful.

    My husband and I spent over a year searching for the perfect "down-size" location that would satisfy us as we were so enamored with our current home and neighborhood.

I have never recommended anyone before but I whole-heartedly recommend Lestel and her trustworthy assistant, Cole, to everyone. Thanks Lestel! ~ Linda and J.R. Burrous Fort Collins, CO

    Lestel is low-key and very professional and has an incredible knowledge of the Fort Collins market. She did great work finding "comparables" for my 1-bedroom condo, set and got a price much higher than I expected, and executed an uneventful sales process and closing. And she has fun doing her work! she and the Century 21- Humpal staff covered everything. I never had to worry about anyone dropping the ball. I recommend Lestel Meade & Century 21 - Humpal to anyone! ~ Glen Leinbach; Ft. Collins, CO

    One of the most important factors in the selection process was meeting Lestel and deciding if we could work well together. One meeting with her and I knew she was the agent for us. Lestel always made us feel that she had our best interest in mind and I trusted her completely! She was very helpful in getting our home ready to sell with great staging ideas and suggestions. She kept us informed during the entire selling process and our experience with Lestel has been fantastic, I will miss seeing her! ~ Tony San Miguel
