|Vickie is a very professional broker. She will be non stop with you at every minute you require her advice! She has a fantastic disposition and will fight to get all the benefits on your side. As a foreigner it was very difficult for me to understand everything, so she took her time and explained how buying and selling works in this country. She will go to the minor detail as cleaning some little corner in order to show the house. She will not let go of you till the closing! She also has a wonderful quality which is her soft manners, and discretion! We have used her every time and we love her more and more! Go for her!!!|

|Vickie Slade is pretty much the cat's meow. She has been working with us for well over a year as we waffled on again and off again selling our house to downsize. There was never any pressure from her, just quiet consideration and respect for our life-altering decision process. When we finally pulled the trigger, Vickie got on top of the whole process quickly and professionally. When asked, she made excellent referrals for services she had vetted and trusted. Her communications skills are excellent and responses to our concerns and questions were timely and fact-filled and appropriate. When you sell your house, you know you will have concerns, issues, regrets, worries, and anxieties -- it is remarkably helpful and reassuring to have someone like Vickie guide you through the process and take off and own a lot of that weight. Our house closed May 19, thanks in very large part to Vickie having everything lined up and ready to go.|
|Working with Vickie was such a pleasure. She made my first home buying experience very positive and stress free. Finding a home in today's market can really be a challenge, but Vickie was right on it! She was sending us listings the second they hit the MLS which really gave us an advantage in this tough market. Not to mention she is super knowledgeable in real estate as well as the inspection side of things. She wasn't going to allow us to settle which made me feel really comfortable!|
|Vickie is the most knowledgeable realtor I have ever work with. She will show you areas of concerns in the construction of the property and or the location. Vickie follows through with every detail of the house hunt though to the closing of the property. Highly recommend her for either selling your current or finding the house of your dreams!|
|We highly recommended Vickie, she took great care of us and found us our perfect home. She always communicated with us throughout the selling and buying process. I felt comfortable and confident that she always had our best interest in mind.|

|We originally contacted Vickie, while still living out of town using an on-line Colorado Realtor reference web site. We shared with her our preferences and the basis criteria we were looking for in a replacement home, subsequent to our relocation. It soon became very obvious to both my wife and me that we had made an excellent decision in selecting Vickie to represent us as a Buyer’s Agent. Most importantly to us, was here responsiveness to our many questions. Vickie provided prompt and informative replies to us either by telephone, e-mail, text messaging, or on several occasions by personal visits, as often as necessary. She quickly grasped after meeting with us, just what types of homes suited our personal requirements, and she escorted us to many of them, most often in her car. Vickie is a highly skilled professional and her first-hand knowledge of the local and surrounding area’s real estate market in general was quite apparent to us, in addition she was quite helpful in calling our attention to both superficial and construction related deficiencies in several of the homes we visited with her. She is a very cordial and extremely pleasant person and always exhibited much patience with us as we searched for just the right home. My recommendation is that anyone in need of a Realtor/Agent in the Boulder, Longmont, Broomfield, Lafayette, or Superior areas, would be well served to consider and retain Vickie Slade as their Agent. I certainly would not hesitate to retain her again and would enjoy working with her in the future.|

|Steve and I just wanted to say "Thank You" for the wonderful job you did for us! It's usually very difficult and stressful to purchase a home when you are working from out of state. Your knowledge of the area, willingness and flexibility to accommodate us at every turn, took all the stress out of this process and made it very enjoyable. We appreciate the fact that you were always giving us updates - we NEVER had to ask for information! You are even accommodating us AFTER the sale by meeting our nephew to give him the keys to our home since we aren't there yet and offering us the names of local realtors here in Texas to use on the sale of this home. Thank you for going above and beyond your real estate duties for us and providing us with exceptional customer service. We really cannot thank you enough and feel as though we have not only been very fortunate in finding you to work for us, but that we have made a friend along the way! Best wishes in every endeavor!|
|Over many years I've worked with several different realtors to purchase and sell properties. As in any profession, whether it's a lawyer, agent or sales-rep, I've found that only about one-in-ten are worth a lick. I must say that Vickie is the best I've ever dealt with and I consider her to be that 1. She actually worked and earned her commission, which is rare. Allow me to give several examples, which will best explain. 1. I once drove by a property she had listed for me and she was actually watering the law and pulling weeks in the flower beds. And I thought, "What's with this Girl? Is this normal?" 2. It was at that same time and property that I met her to go over needed repairs to incourage sales. Remarkably, when I entered the place, she had it staged with a dining room table, place settings, flowers, pictures on the walls, towels in bathrooms and an assortment of other objects placed in just the right location. I was shocked----it was a very pleased shock. And again, I had another thought. "Damn, this girl can't be for real!!!" 3. Knowing that my wife was ill, she then took it upon herself to mow the lawn on occasion and make sure the floors were swept. 4. Then when an offer came in, I experienced her negotiating skills and thoroughness before the property sold. Vickie was flawless and as professional as one could get. 5. I then had her list a second property and it was more of the same. Well, except with this house, a tenant had left several truck loads of trash and Goodwill belongings that needed to be hauled away. And who helped for several hours? You guessed it, Vickie. The woman is remarkable!! 6. And yes, the second property sold just as easily. I could continue with more, but it's best put this way: there's is no way I could possibly give Vickie a higher recommendation. When they made her, they broke the mold, and more agents should follow her lead---and try to imulate her refreshing approach, which starts with a personable smile and kindness that even the buyers appreciated.|
