Vickie is the most knowledgeable realtor I have ever worked 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 home 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.

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 weeds 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 encourage 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 its 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 emulate her refreshing approach, which starts with a personable smile and kindness that even the buyers appreciated.
Thanks, Vickie. You're the best!!

Vickie has extensive experience in realty. Her thorough understanding of the current market allows her to set realistic expectations and goals for her buyers. She also prides herself in keeping up with the latest technology in real estate- this makes the home searching and paperwork process hassle-free!
In working with her, I found that she truly looked out for our best interest by taking the time to explain the home buying process and only showing us homes that we could truly afford. She spent an enormous amount of time with us, showing us homes and learning what we needed out of a home.
I highly recommend working with Vickie Slade.

Vickie Slade: Highly Professional, Highly Personal, High Quality Realtor Who Gets the Job Done!
Dear Potential Customers of Vickie Slade,
My Aunt is a realtor in another state, and helped me choose Vickie as my listing agent. My Aunt said if I chose the top selling agent with a large realtor firm, that this realtor would do a good job selling our Longmont house.
Vickie helped appraise and set an appropriate price on our home. We had tried to sell it by ourselves for a year prior to listing with Vickie, but our pricing was too high and we got no offers. We didn't want to pay for a listing agent, but after working with Vickie I can highly recommend her to anyone and vouch that she does her share of work to earn her wages. She offered to do so many things to help me, since I was living out of state, which I felt were above and beyond her duties as our agent. Before listing our home, Vickie showed up at our home and notified me of what needed to be put in order. She even offered to mow the lawn herself! She rearranged the furniture and decorations just slightly, and hid some clutter which made the house look great. Then she hired a professional photographer who took much better photos than what I had done on my own. All her detailed attention did the job because the first viewers of our home made an offer and we closed very quickly thereafter! Vickie knows how to market and get the right genre of viewers for the house for sale.
After going under contract with some very stingy and inflexible buyers, Vickie continued to very diplomatically smooth out all the rough edges. Vickie had a hard job with us because my husband and I were in the middle of a very ugly divorce. Vickie was brave and she did the difficult job of calling and mediating decisions between my spouse and me. Vickie arranged for reputable cleaners to come into our home, and I didn't have to deal with facilitating that end of things at all. She arranged for professionals to meet all of the requirements which were negotiated as concessions in our contract. These things could have taken me hours to arrange, but because Vickie was very knowledgeable and had many contacts she did it seamlessly while I just watched.
Vickie toured our property before closing to ensure all was in proper order for the buyers' satisfaction, and she informed me of what remained outstanding. She also spent several hours breaking down cardboard boxes left behind and cleaning out our refrigerators.
Vickie is pleasant to talk to and to work with. She is a hard working energetic go-getter and I highly recommend her to anyone looking for an excellent realtor. She can handle even tough cases like mine with style and success and we are very pleased with her services.
"I had never bought a house before and was very lucky to find Vickie who skillfully guided me through the process. We had some challenges but I knew she was on top of things at all times. Vickie stayed in good communication with me and I wound up with a house I'm very happy with. I can't say enough how much I appreciate Vickie's work. She is professional, smart, talented, works hard, and cares. I don't know what more you could ask for."
It is with great pleasure that I am able to give this testimonial in the behalf of Vickie Slade of Keller Williams Front Range Properties, LLC.
I first was contacted by Vickie as a referral from my mortgage broker. In the initial call she asked all the right questions in order to feel out what my wife and I were looking for in a home. As first time home buyers we were not exactly sure ourselves. Vickie took the time to find us many homes to look at and we did look at many of them. Vickie never put any pressure on us to pick a home. Once we found the home we wanted Vickie took every precaution to protect us. My wife and I are now proud home owners and would highly recommend Vickie Slade as your Realtor.

Vickie helped our son purchase his first home. She was very thorough in explaining his options and found several properties to look at until he found a good fit. Vickie kept us informed throughout the process. We highly recommend her and will use Vickie again.
Top qualities: Great Results, Expert, High Integrity
Vickie has been incredibly helpful, resourceful and transparent during the whole process of purchasing a home in unknown territory for us. I trust she is the best at what she does. Not only did she work long distance with us, she showed us many homes in two days and had our best interest at heart. I highly recommend her services to anyone for the Denver and Boulder areas.
After changing realtors 3 times, we finally found the realtor/broker who was the most responsive and attentive. We are moving from out of State and it was a challenge to find a home in two days while we visited. Not only did she have a strong opinion about homes that were not good enough, she took charge in sending us to another area where she thought we would be happier. And after almost 20 homes, we found the one thanks to Vickie. She drove us around during two full days and a half, she had patience and was sincere at all times. I cannot be grateful enough for all her support while we were out of the area and she did all the paperwork and research too. This is the person I recommend the most if looking or selling a place in Colorado. She is super organized and fast.
My husband and I loved working with Vickie. We have moved quite a few times and Vickie made this move as easy and pleasant as possible. She is very professional, knowledgeable and responsive to your every concern. We would highly recommend her.

Vickie Slade found our home for us. She was very diligent as our agent and was on-top of everything. The closing went very smoothly and we are now the proud owners of our new home. I would highly recommend Vickie Slade for a Real Estate Agent.

"Vickie sold our house for us at 1631 Zinnia Circle. She claims she was just doing her job, but I have known a few agents in my time and her efforts were extraordinary.
She was patient and advisory while we had our house renovated for the sale.
She hired a most excellent photographer and did a wonderful job of seeing all the features for what they were and bundling it all in a great sales package.
She made special trips up to the house as the weather changed to make sure everything was still in order.
She had a fantastic HVAC guy on speed-dial to fix a broken ignitor to rescue our house and reputation on a weekend night in freezing weather.
She was very special for us and we would like to recommend her to anyone buying or selling. Truly a professional and always puts in the extra effort for her clients."

Vickie was recommended to us by a friend's realtor who works in a different part of the state. From our very first interactions, I was quite impressed with Vickie. She is very responsive, knowledgeable, helpful, personable, and attentive to detail. She patiently took the time to learn (and help us gain an even better feel for) just what we were looking for in our new home. With each viewing, she was diligent and insightful in pointing out flaws or items that would need fixing or updating in the near future as well as features that would make living or reselling more convenient, yet she was careful to allow us to form our own impression of a place before she weighed in with her own additional insights. She was also very responsive and helpful in assisting throughout the entire home buying process, providing recommendations and information on loan officers and home inspectors, and providing insight on negotiations. We truly felt that Vickie was keen to represent our best interests and ensure that we were happy and comfortable with our purchase as well as each step of the home buying process, and would certainly request her services again.
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 her 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.
