2/2/2022 When we began our search with Beth, my wife and I had been very discouraged by the current market conditions and thought that we would just not be able to find a house that would fit our needs/wants. Beth encouraged us to not give up, she also explained the strategy she prepared for us. Once she started showing us houses she understood what we needed so well that she was able to look at a house and know it would not be the right fit for us even when we were caught in the moment. When we found the home for us there was mutual excitement. It was refreshing to see she really cared about my wife and I. We were not use to the professionalism and guidance that Beth provided to us. It was like a friend that knew us for years was helping us find our home. What a great feeling to have. Thank you Beth for the great experience!!

1/7/2022 Beth was awesome to work with, we were buying our dream home in Colorado while living in Florida! It takes a special agent to get a transaction done long distance and Beth was great! She helped us thru all the hoops and definitely made us feel secure knowing she was with us every step of the way. She helped when we needed locals to do some work as well! We were extremely happy with her and would recommend her if you're looking for your dream home as well!!

1/20/2021 I would use Beth as an agent again in a heartbeat. We came to her in a bit of a tricky situation and on a tight deadline, and she helped walk us through with ease. As a first time home buyer Im sure I asked a bunch of dumb questions, but Beth put my mind at ease and made the whole process seem like a cake walk.

1/19/2021 Beth Really came through for us. We are not local residents and were looking for a vacation rental which we could use personally. Beth did all the leg work and found us the perfect property. The whole process was seamless and effortless for us. we plan on spending more time in the area and look forward to working with Beth on future projects. We feel as we have new best friends with Beth and her husband. Rob and Margie Smith.

12/15/2020 Beth is truly the best of the best. We reached out to her early on in our house hunting process, and we were so impressed that she kept us in mind from the very beginning and would send us specific listings based on what we were looking for, even before we were truly ready to make an offer on anything... once we were ready to go look at properties and were pre-approved for our loan, she made it easy and we continued to feel totally prioritized. She was always able to get us showings that worked with our schedule. Her knowledge of the various towns and neighborhoods is impressive, and she helped us explore all of our options. She is dedicated and completely trustworthy & 100% on top of everything. Super responsive, every time & sent us listings right when they hit the market, and on some, even before they hit the open market. It is truly a crazy market right now, and she never wavered with her efforts on our behalf, even through bidding wars, and we also walked away from a deal during the inspection process when we found issues with that house. She helped us stay hopeful and interested, and guided us to options we never would have known were out there without her help. She was flexible with us when our interests changed and as our search evolved. She literally helped us find the Perfect place, for the Perfect price, even in the craziest market. Working with her was a pleasure, to say the least. From the very first moment we reached out to Beth she gave us her best, and we are so grateful and lucky for it!! She is extremely professional, knowledgeable, a talented negotiator, and incredibly personable. She is dedicated to the max. Through the process, she actually helped us discover what we were really looking for, and no matter what happened, she helped us stay motivated. Her determination, tireless effort, and skill became the success of finding our home. She has her hand and utmost attention on the pulse of the real estate market, and you will not find a better realtor. We literally could not have done this without her. We had reached out to a few other realtors in the beginning, and no one prioritized us from the start like Beth did. The home search can be stressful and daunting, and she created ease and fun around the process. I am so happy to recommend her, and I know she will work just as hard for you, as she did for us. Beth you are the BEST!!! Thank you so incredibly much.

10-8-2020 Beth did an amazing job helping us find the second home of our dreams! There were multiple families investing in the property which resulted in strong and often conflicting priorities. Beth was great at managing these priorities and was very patient with us as we looked at many very different places across the valley. She was always available and very responsive with any requests that we had. I would highly recommend Beth to anyone looking to purchase a home in this area.

8/6/2020 I have worked with Beth twice now. The first time was as a buyer and the second time was as a seller. She was wonderful to work with on both occasions. She is very knowledgeable and willing to put in the extra work to make things happen. If I had to pick one quality about her which stood out to me, it is her ability and willingness to communicate all relevant information during the buying or selling process. Buying or selling can be a stressful process, but having an open and communicative agent does wonders to mitigate the stress.

4/4/2020 I was impressed with Beth from the start to finish of my home buying experience. She is a warm, kind person. Beth made herself available at every step in the process. She was very supportive and made my relocation from the East Coast as easy as it could be. I am thankful for her efforts and recommend her for your buying or selling needs.

3/7/2020 I met Beth 3 years ago when my parents first thought of selling their home in BV. Though they didn't sell at the time, Beth was still very helpful and a professional. When my parents died and we decided to sell the cabin, Beth did everything she could to make the process easy for us. This made a difficult time alot easier....highly recommend Beth!!

I would highly recommend her services to anyone looking to retain her services. Thanks Beth!

8/17/2019 Beth was recommended to us by our family who had moved to Salida last year. She has been super helpful and knowledgeable through our entire land purchase and relocation process. She was relentless in finding us the piece of property that fit our needs and actually made it a pleasurable experience. We have enjoyed collaborating with her these past few months and would highly recommend her to anyone else. We would, without a doubt, call her again if we had to do it all over.

8/2/2019 Working with Beth was a wonderful experience. We were able to house hunt from across the country and find a perfect home. Although we were on her email list to receive new homes in the area, she made sure to email us individually if she thought there was one that would be a good match. When we were interested in seeing a home, she promptly set up a FaceTime call where she gave us a thorough tour of the house. She offered her perspective of the positives and negatives of the house, giving us a more well informed view of the property. She made completing all the paperwork required to buy a house a breeze. If you are looking for a prompt, professional, knowledgeable and humorous person to help you find a home, I'd suggest Beth!

4/12/2019 We couldn't have lucked out more with having Beth as our realtor. She handled putting together our initial offer amazingly fast and supported us in each step of the way when questions or complications arose. Her on going communication and availability to talk or text with us was excellent.

1/8/2019 Beth was an outstanding agent who worked very hard for us. She understood that finding a house that we both liked would be difficult. When the first house, for which we made an offer, failed inspection, she went right to work and found 2 more (one of which we bought). She had an excellent knowledge of the area.

12/15/2018 Our search for a house or vacant lot in Buena Vista began as an exploratory endeavor in November 2017. Beth was well aware that we were looking casually and in no rush. Nonetheless, Beth checked in by email regularly and sent listings for properties she thought would be of interest. A year later, we made an offer on a vacant lot that involved an easement agreement that needed to be executed by the seller and adjoining landowners prior to closing. This delayed closing by two months. There was a lot of back and forth to make this happen and even though this was a small deal for her, she treated our transaction as if it were a priority. We would not hesitate to recommend Beth and the team at Collegiate Peaks Realty to others looking to buy in the area. We appreciated Beth's communication and professionalism from the time we first met until a year later when we closed on a lot that had a small complication to overcome.

9/9/2018 Beth sent me a listing the first day it was on the market. When I contacted her she arranged for an associate to show me the house the next day . I drove up from Denver and after looking at the house I could see it was what I wanted and could afford. I made the offer and Beth , even though out of the country on vacation , was persistent in finding the listing realtor who was also on vacation. Beth's quick thinking and professionalism made my offer first in line for a much sought after property. Beth conduct the entire closing process in a very efficient manner staying in close contact with the listing realtor and myself. Thanks to Beth and her team I now have a cabin in the mountains to pass down to my children and grandchildren.

I enjoyed her personality and professionalism. When I heard that she was going into realestate, I knew she would be trustworthy and give my husband and I great service. We are so happy with our land purchase!!! Thank you for such an easy process!

3/27/2018 Beth is wonderful! Throughout the process she was always responsive and supportive, and excited to help me find what I was looking for. I was searching for property from outside the area, and her experience and knowledge of Buena Vista and the Arkansas River Valley was incredibly helpful. When things didn't work out as easily as I had originally intended, she was encouraging, and presented great suggestions to help me think creatively about how to find the right property to meet my needs. It was a pleasure to work with her, and I would highly recommend her to anyone.

Beth is the ultimate professional. Very knowledgeable, always available, and returns calls promptly. Our purchasing experience was very smooth. Beth is also listing our home for sale. She provided detailed advice on preparing our home for sale and developed a specific, professional marketing plan. We could not be more pleased with Beth and her team.

Beth Lockett Never Gave Up!
I started looking 7 years ago for a house, starting in Montana, then Wy, and ending up evaluating towns and areas all over Colorado. My search was based on top fly fishing towns/areas along with a community I wanted to live in. Three (3) years ago, I discovered the Buena Vista and Salida areas. I googled realtors in this area. Coldwell Banker came up so I called the agency and chose to work with Beth. I didn't want to put all my eggs in one basket so I had a tight budget. It didn't matter to Beth if I was spending over a million dollars or $600,000. I still got great service. I had used other realtors in Wy. and Co. that just didn't show me enthusiasm or being active. Beth, was a go getter, which was what I was looking for. We communicated together well. During the 3 years, I lost 4 houses because I was outbid. About a year went by as Beth kept emailing me houses that were listed. I heard from her unexpectedly that she had found The house and property I had been looking for! She was exactly right because she took the time to learn my tastes and preferences. I found a ranch style house with views and with some land. I jumped on the house. Beth helped me in every step of the way from making the offer to closing. We closed last week! I'm glad I chose Beth and the Coldwell Banker team! They were great to work with and Beth never gave up!
