We absolutely loved working with Carol! She was easy to work with, protected our interests well, helped us make great decisions and in the end both sold our home (four showings, four offers!) and ushered us into a new (to us) home that still makes us comment almost daily, "Gosh, we love this house!"
Carol Cowan, helped me out with several investment properties, from showing to closing. Carol was always available to answer any questions and she went over and beyond her normal duties to help with any issues. She is an outstanding realtor in my opinion.
This was my first home purchase and Carol was very patient and helpful in helping me find the house that I wanted. I flew in from Colorado for the weekend and she dedicated the entire Saturday to view 10 properties. In the end we had competing bids and following her advice I was able to close on the house I wanted. I would definitely recommend her if you are searching for a house. Excellent service.
Our home buying experience could not have been better or gone smoother! We came in from out of state and bought a home before the weekend was over. Great experience!
My wife and I tried to sell our Fruita home for 3 years with no success.We hired Carol and within 4 days we started seeing results. Through her diligence and hsrd work we sold our house in a matter of days. Her work did not end there as she found out perfect new home. Through Carols hard work we achieved all of our real estate goals,.
I worked with Ris and was delighted with the service provided. Ris stayed on top of things and was very thorough in explaining anything that I did not fully understand. He went above and beyond to negotiate not only the best price for me, but also to negotiate all needed repairs that I overlooked so that the house was move-in-ready for my fiance and I. A huge plus for me was the fact that Ris went out of his way to consistently drop by the home once it was in contract to make sure everything was kept up with and all needed repairs were sufficient and on schedule. Very happy with my first home and the overall experience, due in large part to Ris and Carol. Would highly recommend. Thank you guys!!
Having knowledgeable real estate agents make such a big difference on the stressful home buying experience. Ris made us feel comfortable the first time we met. He helped us out every step of the way and responded immediately to any of our concerns or questions. We are very happy with the end result. Thank you both!
I lived 4.5 hours away from where I bought my home. Carol was great to work with. I even was told by my mortgage broker that Carol was on top of things and that not all agents are. Both I and my mortgage broker give her the highest review possible. I call her based on website info. I was so glad I chose her.
Carol was extremely warm and honest as we went through the process of both buying and selling. I appreciated her experience and knowledge. For instance she told us when a home had blue pipe and that it would be an issue long term. I would recommend her to anyone!

Carol and Ris were our real estate agents when my wife and I searched for our first house. They were patient, pleasant to work with, and consistently available. They went the extra mile to make sure we were well informed about this process, which was completely new to us. In the end, we had a very pleasant home purchase experience. I highly recommend Carol and Ris to anyone who is in the market for a home.
We loved Carol! She was always quick to respond to use and very patient with all of our questions. She was always quick to show us a house when we wanted to see one and would even show us a listing later into the evening if we needed! We loved working with Carol!
As first time homebuyers, we had a ton of questions. Carol was always willing to explain the process and what we could expect. She worked around our schedules to show homes, and was very receptive to our "wants" or dislikes about a particular home. She worked quickly to get a backup offer in place on a short sale that we had our hearts set on, and again when the original offer fell through and we were able close on the home we thought had gotten away. We are very happy with Carol's services, and would recommend her to anyone without hesitation.
My wife and I have been looking for a new home for our expanding family for a long time. On a whim, I sent an email from Zillow to Carol about a property. She was very quick to respond and while that property and many others turned out not to be the "one" for us, she never gave up looking for our perfect place. We looked at several homes over a year, and learned a lot from our agent about the home buying process. Anytime of the day, any day of the week, we could get a quick response about any concerns we had. We when finally found our home, she negotiated an incredible deal for us. I would highly recommend Carol Cowan for any of your real estate needs.
Carol helped my wife and I purchase our first home. She made the experience enjoyable and was a good source of knowledge for a first time homebuyer. She worked to find out just what qualities were most important to us in a home and found us a house that met all of our "must haves"! Carol was pleasant to work with and was very low pressure about making a sale. Her focus was always to make sure we were going to be happy with our decision, no matter how long or how many houses we needed to look at. I would definitely recommend her for first time home buyers like us!
Carol stayed on top of our frustrating and long-term transaction. She explained the processes necessary in a foreclosure transaction and helped find answers when the processes didn't seem to follow the anticipated route. She was very professional and encouraging to help us get into a great home that is perfect for us!
If you are looking for someone who is attentive to every detail, then Carol Cowan is the realtor for you. We just closed on our new home and this being our 13th home purchase, she was by far the most wonderful professional throughout the process. She was very knowledgeable about and responsive to the many humps that were a part of this process for us. Her positive attitude and encouraging words got us through the hard times, like the seller being so stubborn about so0000 many things. The whole experience was so worth it, but Carol made it a joy. I take pleasure in recommending Carol as your realtor and wish her many years of great success!
Carol is the ultimate professional. She not only was attentive to our needs, but very flexible, available, courteous, knowledgeable, encouraging and let the property sell itself. She was never pushy but made us feel very comfortable throughout the entire transaction. Carol had our vision in mind prior, during and after the sale. We were very satisfied with her skill set and have recommended her to other business and personal friends. Carol is the best.
Carol is awesome! Moving up here from south of Aspen we really needed someone with the local knowledge to steer us towards our dream house (and away from the chicken houses). It took us a while to find that "perfect" combination of house and land, but she was great. She showed us so many properties and was always upbeat and encouraging. When we finally found the one, she negotiated the price down to an AMAZING price. Needless to say, we were ecstatic! We are now happily ensconced up here in the beautiful mountains and just love it!
Carol is a wonderful real estate agent with very good knowledge of the industry and area we were looking in. We highly recommend her services to anyone looking to purchase a new home in the Aspen and North Ga. area's and will definitely be recommending her to all our friends and family.
My house was sold in 1 week after being listed. She had great/professional pictures of the house and did an awesome job marketing it. Great team! I wish she was in SC to help me buy my house here. Very thankful for all her dedication.
Carol was so great to work with! She is very patient and has a super intuition. I didn't really know what I was looking for in house, but I had pretty specific logistics issues to contend with. She helped me find a great home that meets all of my needs. This lady is unflappable! She and her husband are a great team!
Ris and Carole were excellent agents! We worked with them to get our rental property sold and was impressed and felt vert comfortable with them at the first meeting. Their knowledge and wisdom throughout the entire process was spot on. When things got a little discouraging, they were always positive and creative on ways to get around obstacles. And on a personal level, they are just good down home people that we plan to keep in our family circle.
A+++ Having knowledgeable real estate agents make such a big difference with the stressful home buying experience. Ris made us feel comfortable the first time we met. He helped us out every step of the way and responded immediately to any of our concerns or questions. We highly recommend them.
This team will be stellar! Both great people with 5 star work ethics!!

We chose Ris and Carol for selling our home and we went under contract within 3 weeks of listing. Choosing Ris and Carol was one of the best decisions we made. I was very impressed with their responsiveness even while they were on vacation. They amazed us at every step during the selling process. I sincerely recommenced them to all of you to take the benefit of their service.

Carol is everything you would want your real estate agent to be! It was a pleasure dealing with her and our special needs as we are out of town and purchasing this property in GA. A great go-between, between locations. We are still in touch with regard to little piddily things and she is still eager to help even tho the deal is done and over-with.

Carol and Ris are the best husband and wife team out there. Carol listened to what we want and the type of property we were looking for. And she found us something even better than we could imagine. Ris on the other hand sold our home in record time. You can't have one without the other, they are bother very knowledgeable, experienced and professional.

Carol and Ris are an excellent team of realtors. Due to their marketing strategies my home sold in less than three days. We had multiple offers, many of which were over the asking price! I would definitely recommend them to anyone looking to sell a home.

Carol and Ris were knowledgeable, flexible, and willing to do nearly anything to help us purchase our new home. I can’t recommend them strongly enough. If you want someone who will truly put in the work for you and who will listen to you I think the Cowan’s are absolutely the best out there.

Carol and Ris helped us with both buying a new home and selling ours. They are great negotiators! They listened to our concerns and wishes. They also trusted us when it came to deciding pricing and didn’t rush us along. They provided great advice on what to do and not do in readying our home for sale. Already have referred them to others, and will continue to do so!
Checking the calendar, spring won’t officially kick off until March 20 when the celestial equinox happens. That same Saturday will also officially signal the start of Mesa County’s annual real estate “hot” selling season.
It’s been quite the year for real estate agents, with fairly large factors affecting every housing market in addition to all of the hyper-local influences in home preference. Most areas in Mesa County have seen an increased focus on outdoor spaces associated with the homes.
It’s easy to appreciate the beauty of Colorado National Monument in the summer, when plants and trees in Grand Junction, Colorado are in full bloom. But the Monument is particularly attractive in the winter. Snow in the Grand Valley is not as common as in the higher elevations in the state. But when a dusting of snow occurs here it covers the Colorado National Monument in a cozy, white blanket.

House-hunting in Mesa County may start on a laptop, but although “sight-unseen” purchases are on the rise, sooner or later, most forays become less virtual. Soon after one of Mesa County’s experienced Realtors® is recruited (preferably, that’s us), the hunt will go mobile. After the most likely candidate properties have been agreed upon, in-person visits will be lined up.
In any other year, when Mesa County homeowners read an opening line like, “For the 13th time this year, the 30-year fixed-rate mortgage set a record low…,” their reaction would most likely be something like, “Wow! They cut rates again! How great!”
They were at it again last week—the party-poopers who wanted to quibble about what newspapers and broadcast media were proclaiming: a shattering of the record lows in mortgage interest rates. For Mesa County real estate followers, the argument missed what is most important: the bottom line that the rates being offered continue to create a heady environment for home buyers and sellers.
