    Rick and Michele H.

    “You will not find a better realtor in Colorado Springs! He was referred to us by friends and family in initially purchasing the home and with its sale. Joe is an exceptionally experienced professional and provides caring service with every step of the process.”

    Steven S. and Sarah N.

    "Joe was really helpful in our search. Being first-time homebuyers, and in such a busy market as Colorado Springs, he was very persistent in our search and wrote multiple offers until we eventually landed our new property. Really great communication and kept us informed and up to date with every step of the way."

    “Joe Cuchiara is the most kind, honest and thorough Realtor you will ever meet. He walks you through every detail and provides honest recommendations based on his 20+ years of experience. If you have any concerns about any aspect of the transaction and will give you pros/cons to each and doesn’t sugar coat it. Buying a home is a huge decision, and he makes you feel at ease with the process while making it an enjoyable experience. When we sold our house, we ran into a few stumbling blocks (it was a 120-year-old house, it happens) and he wasn’t discouraged. He was happy to help any way he could. He goes above and beyond and puts his whole heart into it. Thank you Joe! We are so excited to continue working with you!”

    “Joe is the best Realtor I have worked with. He is engaging and professional. His insights into pricing and marketing gave me confidence in our sales plan. His follow up and advice provided confidence as we negotiated contracts and moved through closing. Joe knows the market and is a trusted guide through the complex real estate transaction process.”

    “Look no further - this is the best realtor in The Springs! Joe made the home buying process easy to understand. His guidance and expertise were crucial to us landing a home that fit both our needs and has an amazing view of the mountains! Joe thank you so much again, we couldn’t have done it without you!”

    Jeff and Linda P.

    “Professional, courteous, knowledgeable, thorough, excellent communicator, all of these characteristics and many more make Joe Cuchiara an outstanding choice as a realtor. Joe led us through each step in our home sale. He made sure we always knew what was going to happen next. When we had a family emergency Joe stepped right in to handle things for us and keep us apprised of everything we needed to know. He was able to recommend qualified professionals for changes necessary to our home and made the entire process less stressful than It otherwise might have been. Even after closing, Joe followed up with the title company ensuring that we had all documentation and instructions for the next step to our new lives. We simply cannot say enough good things. Thanks Joe!!”

    “Joe was my realtor in 2000 when I bought this home. 20 years later I returned to Joe to sell the home due to the way he had helped me out 20 years prior. If I could give Joe more than 5 stars, I would. He is attentive, honest beyond words, communicative and I knew right from the start that he had my back and would absolutely do his very best for me on both buying and selling transactions. Add to that the fact that he's just a super nice guy and extremely professional. I can find no fault in anything that Joe did in both transactions. I feel blessed to have met him and am more than happy to refer him to anyone looking to buy or sell their property in his area.”

    “This is the 4th house I have bought or sold with Joe as my realtor. The first transaction was back in 1999. We listed my current house on a May 17th, 2020 and had 19 showings and 10 offers the first day. Joe has always made me feel like I was his only customer. Joe is the most ethical, dedicated, devoted, epitome of a professional I have ever worked with. I have followed his guidance and counsel for the last 21 years and found it to always be accurate and concise. A man of unquestionable character and unparalleled knowledge in the Real Estate Industry.”

    "Highly recommend Joe. He is great to work with. He helped us in the purchase and then sale of the same property and was with us EVERY step of the way. Professional, courteous and knows the COS market very well. You can't go wrong with Joe!"

    Scott and Candy V.

    “In the current world of voice mails, text messages, and emails, Joe used every single of them to communicate with my wife and myself in our search for a house and our eventual relocation to the Colorado Springs area. There was never a point in which we were waiting on Joe's feedback. Deadlines, contracts, and the simple mantra of 'I will do what I say I will do', are the cornerstones of what you can expect from working with Joe.”

    "Truly a professional in every sense of the word. Great listener, kept the goal of working together as a team a priority from start to finish and always updated throughout the process. One of the best realtors I have worked with hands down."

    Dave and Mary Y.

    "In our first introduction to Joe Cuchiara he was representing our daughter and son-in-law attempting to buy their first home. We were asked to give our opinion of a house they were considering and Joe was present as we walked through.   As we asked questions or had concerns about the property,  it was apparent Joe possessed real-estate knowledge based on years of experience.   We continued to hear about Joe via our daughter as they navigated their way through the contract process and were highly impressed with how he represented her and our son-in-law to the seller’s agent, including throughout the home inspection process.
    We purchased our first home in 1990 and since that time have bought and sold 7 houses, ranging from $85K to over $1 million. Frankly, over the years we’d become somewhat cynical about realtors as it seems many simply think their work stops once they’ve put your house onto the Multiple Listing Service (MLS).   This is not the case with Joe and we cannot emphasize that enough!    He is always professional not only with his clients, but also with buyer/seller agents and there’s no doubt in our mind or experience that we’d not have made it to closing were it not for Joe’s ability to be a calm, knowledgeable advisor to us when emotions ran high. We have used Joe for our two most recent home sale transactions, and we continue to work with Joe as we are looking to buy or build a new home.   He is always prompt to respond to texts and email questions and requests, and he’s never made us feel that we’ve been a burden even though oftentimes we’re contacting him on short notice.  Another way Joe distinguishes himself from other realtors we’ve worked with is he takes complete ownership of the entire contract process…managing inspection schedules, deadlines, even some of the inspection resolution tasks.  This took such a significant burden off us and really helped streamline the entire process. Without question, we would recommend Joe as a realtor and have already done so on several occasions."

    "Joe, we have bought a home through you, our extended family members have purchased homes through you, friends, etc. You have always been the best and most upright person in business I have seen (and my own mother sold real estate!). Best to you, and when we need to move we will Facebook you!"

    "Dear Joe, Thank you for all of your help and patience throughout this process. We appreciate your diligence and frequent communication."

    "By the time we met Joe, we had been through 5 (yes, five!) realtors. Those we had tried to work with either wanted a signed contract, ignored phone calls, gave bad advice, or were just plain lazy. The fact that we were thoroughly frustrated was an understatement. Joe exceeded our expectations from the start. Joe earned our loyalty and respect by being the kind of Realtor every Realtor should be. He didn't waste our time by showing us houses we didn't want or weren't qualified to buy. Whenever something needed to be signed, researched, or completed, he was on top of it. When it came time to finalize our loan, he gave us very valuable information and advice. On top of all this, we were never treated like we were just "business." Joe actually cares about his clients. There was one house in particular that we were interested in, but Joe told us he would rather see us in a different house. I am NOT looking forward to the day Joe retires (he might like it, though!). To be honest, I'm scared that I will never find another Realtor as impressive as Joe. We have recommended him to everybody we know who needs a Realtor (and will continue to do so) without a second thought. We were truly blessed to have Joe as our Realtor (and we're not done yet!) and I have no doubt that he will work as hard for you as he did for us."

    "WOW... that word is the only way to describe Joe. His abilities as a Real Estate Agent and a human being demand a longer list. I readily admit I am very biased towards Joe, as our relationship dates back to 1987, before he was in Real Estate and was the owner of a bicycle business. I did as much business as I could with Joe as his personality and acumen were then and are now second to none. When it came time to buy a house after college, my wife and I found a patient and intelligent soul in Joe who was able to listen and provide us the best choice for our home buying situation. His extensive knowledge and networking also made the whole process much easier as he had great lenders and inspectors that we could trust as much as him to recommend for us. He even turned us onto a great carpet cleaner. It is one matter to pull out a business card and hand it to someone without a thought, but, I know Joe never tells or does anything he himself would not utilize. I have recommended several people to Joe that are as equally impressed as I am. Joe's calm and non-pushy demeanor should be the paradigm for Real Estate Agents everywhere and not the exception. There may be better out there, but I do not think any of us will live long enough to find them."

    "Joe helped my wife and I buy our first house. We first met him when he showed us a prospective home, and even though we were not enchanted with the house, we did sense his integrity and asked him to be our buyers representative. We were very happy with his availability and willingness to guide us through the entire process from start to finish. We were lucky to run into him and asked him some years later to guide us through a property purchase when we needed more help! Thanks Joe!
