Bill Lockett did a great job selling our house! Everything went as planned, from the photos and virtual tour to final closing. If you want the job done well and the job done right, give Bill a call! He is one of the best realtors I have ever dealt with buying and selling 3 different homes.

We are very grateful to Bill for his professionalism and care throughout this process. What we are most thankful for was his knowledge of this very confusing process.

Bill was highly recommended to me by a friend who has done two real estate transactions with him. As I described the parameters of the desired attributes of a piece of land, Bill quickly assessed my needs and wishes and found a lot that exactly fit my criteria. He gave my family and me a virtual tour of a lot that was soon to go on the market and answered numerous questions, so when the lot hit the market, he had everything in hand to make a viable offer. The result? Within minutes of the lot being listed, Bill put in our offer and it was accepted. As this was a remote transaction from beginning to end, the communication needed to be clear and prompt between us. This became even more essential after the offer was accepted. He shepherded along the process by keeping me informed of the timeline for the submission of documents. From the initial contact with Bill to his finding just the right piece of land to his support in putting together an offer before the lot was even on the market, every part of the process was handled smoothly and with expertise. In the "hot" Chaffee County market, a trusted and knowledgeable realtor is essential, and Bill is just the realtor to have in one's corner.

Sean W - 5 Stars

Being a first time homebuyer Bill made the whole process easy from the beginning. Very easy to work with and always answering questions as quickly as possible. Just made the process simple and was always checking in to see how things were going on my end and sharing any information on how the rest of the process was going. Overall just made the whole process seem to run seamlessly and always ready to help.

Jeff and Julie S - 5 Stars

It was a pleasure working with Bill on the purchase of our vacation home in Buena Vista. He helped us navigate the challenges of being out-of-town buyers dealing with a market that was short on inventory and where good properties didn't stay available long. Bill helped us stay focused on what we really wanted so that we didn't settle too quickly on something that didn't quite hit the mark. He was responsive and communicated very well throughout the process. Bill went above and beyond to help us find exactly what we were looking for. We are grateful to have worked with Bill professionally and are blessed to call him our friend.

Corey B - 5 Stars

I've worked with top notch realtors in the past and I can say without hesitation that my experience with Bill was easily the best.

He is outstanding with timeliness and thoroughness of communication. He always goes above and beyond to ensure complete customer satisfaction and achieve the best results for his clients. Last but not least, Bill is friendly, thoughtful, and genuine. He is a true pleasure to work with.

I have had the opportunity to work with Bill on multiple real estate transactions over several years. Every interaction has been positive and professional. I have worked with multiple realtors in several states over the years, Bill's knowledge, integrity and character are exceptional. Bill is an excellent communicator, prompt in coordinating information if he doesn't know the answer and has a network of assets to assist with whatever real estate needs one may have. My family and I happily recommend Bill Lockett and all the fine people at Colligate Peaks Reality.

Bill was extremely professional, knowledgeable, responsive, patient and fair during the entire process. He focused a lot of time understanding what is important to us and why, which created an experience that was authentic. He viewed his role as helping us find the right property at a fair price rather than making a "sale". Dealing with Bill and his team was an overwhelmingly positive experience.

Dennis H - 5 Stars

We have known Bill for several years and think very highly of him. He is well known and respected in the community, extremely easy to work with, always available and provides professional guidance. We highly recommend Bill Lockett for those that need to sell or buy real estate.

Beni N - 5 Stars

Bill Lockett was helpful right from the beginning when I told him we would be relocating to Buena Vista. He got us set up with a lender right away so the loan would be ready to go when we found the right home. He showed us many homes and was always available to answer questions. When we found the home we wanted to buy, Bill was very helpful throughout the entire process. He knows everything about this community and could answer any question I had. This was a big move for us and he made everything go very smooth up to the closing. I am so glad we used Bill as our realtor. He was professional, knowledgeable, trustworthy, and very easy to work with.

Kim and David H 5 Stars

Bill was a great agent. Bill helped us with our first land investment opportunity and guided us through this process in a very effective and professional manner. Bill was very responsive and thorough with the questions we had and had a very good understanding of the local area. I must say, Bill was on vacation in Spain while he was helping us land our dream property - and always stayed in contact with us during our contract process - start to finish. Highly recommend Bill's service !!

Steve and Renee M - 5 Stars

It was truly a pleasure working with Bill Lockett and Collegiate Peaks Realty. His knowledge of the local real estate market is unsurpassed. His professionalism and superior customer service was really appreciated by my wife and me. He quickly brought multiple qualified buyers to the table and our home sold quickly. We have bought and sold a number of properties over the years through Bill and Collegiate Peaks Realty and every experience with Bill has been excellent. There are usually some hiccups with any real estate transaction and when there were, Bill anticipated the problems and painlessly solved them for us. We wouldn't buy or sell property in the Arkansas River Valley with anyone but Bill Lockett.

Kaylin C - 5 Stars

Bill is AMAZING to say the least! Our buying experience was rough, every house that Bill showed us it seemed like got a cash offer. Bill never gave up on us he would always tell us "don't worry we will find you a home"... and he did! He fought for us with not only negotiating, but stayed on our lender to make sure we closed in time (even when he was out of the country). His team is amazing and made it a whole lot less stressful. I would buy from him a million times over and recommend him to anyone looking to buy a home. He doesn't push you into a home, will talk your budget with you, make sure you are okay with the purchase price, negotiating everything to put us where we needed. He doesn't leave you feeling blind or out of the loop, all information he gets he will inform you.

Heather M - 5 Stars

Bill saved us! After working with an agent who just didn't care and had no desire to work to sell our house, we found Bill. Bill was professional, honest, and responded quickly to any concern or question we had. After 6 months with the other awful realtor, once we changed to Bill it only took 3 weeks to sell our house. He was with us every step of the way and I cannot recommend him enough!! He is professional and knowledgeable and you will find no one better than him!

Monica B - 5 Stars

From the moment I met Bill Lockett I knew he was honest and hardworking and wanted to help me. I had just lost my husband and Bill understood that I really didn't want to be involved with the details of getting the sale completed. He kept me so very well informed every step of the way and took care of all the details and all the snags that come with home sales. I am blessed to have had his help and would recommend his services to anyone that wanted a very knowledgeable, honest, caring person to help them buy or sell a home. Thanks Bill.

Matt H - 5 Stars

When it comes to Chaffee County real estate I can't imagine there is anyone as knowledgeable or as much of a pleasure to work with as Bill Lockett. Bill was responsive to all my requests and took as much time as I needed to help me understand every step in the process of selling my home. Once my curiosity was satisfied enough for me to make a decision on what I wanted to do, Bill and his team executed our plan seamlessly. It was very easy to sit back and relax all the way to closing with Bill and his team taking care of all the details. I can't imagine a better experience! With many thanks to Bill & the team.

All-in-all, Bill made the entire process very smooth and stress-free. We highly recommend working with Bill!

Bill was instrumental in helping my family to purchase a breathtaking lot in the Buena Vista area. He handled every step of the process with professionalism and practiced expertise: reaching out to the seller, negotiating a fair price for both parties, and arranging for a smooth transfer of ownership. If you are looking for real results and need a Realtor with integrity and deep industry and local knowledge, look no further than Bill and his associates at Collegiate Peaks Realty.

Dallas F - 5 Stars

From the first time we met Bill I knew he was the guy for the sale of our property. He knew the region well and had a great knowledge of the people that needed to be involved and find those that he did not know. This was required as I reside in Canada and was not able to do much of the work and attention needed when selling a ranch, Bill took care of this and I felt comfortable that the process was in capable hands. Bill was always available by phone and email and reacted quickly when needed. There would be no other person I would want to sell any future realty, as Bill is the guy to use.

Our experience selling our home with Coldwell Banker Collegiate Peaks Realty was awesome. A special thank you to Bill Lockett for his personable approach. He went well beyond our expectations with all of the steps necessary to complete the sale. Bill was able to meet all of our concerns and treated us as valuable clients. A special thank you to Bill, Tracy, and all who helped make this a pleasurable experience. We would highly recommend Collegiate Peaks Realty.

Michelle and Duke V - 5 Stars

Bill Lockett, owner of Coldwell Banker Collegiate peaks Realty is the only real estate agent we will ever use in Colorado! After listing our home with two previous agents, and for almost 2 years, switching to Bill was the best decision we made selling our custom dream home. After just months listing with Bill, he sold our home for more than our two previous fall-through offers. Listing a home can be very stressful. Bill was thorough. He made the entire process feel easy. With his knowledge and experience he set realistic expectations with the current market. He was always “in our corner”. We’re so thankful for Bill and his team. He sold our home and assisted moving our family into the phase of life.

Exemplary, Knowledgeable, Attentive, Professional
"You are in good hands” is what a local businessman said to me when I told him what agent was helping me in my search for a home. That businessman was totally correct. Bill proved to be knowledgeable about the region’s market value, stood fast on ethical principles, and always immediately responded to our questions and concerns.
The first house we walked through we considered making an offer. Bill was alert and noticed a major misrepresentation of the square footage. He handled the situation professionally and gave us wise guidance. As it turned out, we found another home that was much better suited to our needs.
From making an offer on our future home all the way to the closing, Bill was cheerful and obliging. Several times he met me at the house so I could meet with remodeling contractors and the inspector.
Even though Bill is a busy realtor due to his stellar reputation, he gave us his full attention. His office also provided us with a useful, detailed list of due dates and obligations. In an extremely competitive market it was a blessing to work with an experienced, trustworthy, and professional agent.

Holly M - 5 Stars

Exceeded Expectations Once Again!!
I bought a piece of land a few years ago and unexpectedly wanted to sell it this year. Without a doubt, I knew Bill was my "go to" realtor. With a knowledgeable assessment of the comparable lots, he gave me a price range. He also indicated that land was not moving quickly because of the increase of interest rates; however, when I told him I wanted to set the price a bit higher than the highest end of the range, he supported my decision. The posting showed the beautiful views of the Collegiate Range from the lot.
Imagine our surprise and delight when, after less than two weeks, he called saying he had received a full price, cash offer. We were both delighted.
Bill helped shepherd me through the closing process and informed me of the current hazards regarding fraud and how it is affecting real estate transactions. He made sure I was sending and receiving emails through a secure network that the title company uses.
One of the perks of working with Collegiate Peaks Realty is that the lines of communication are always open. If I called or texted Bill or his office, the calls were always answered immediately or returned within a few minutes. Tracy was also very helpful.
Bill's style is one of openness, grace, and one feels like he is a friend who has one's back. He clearly loves his job, and this couples well with his depth of knowledge and love of Chaffee County. It is difficult to imagine another realtor exceeding the skill and knowledge that Bill brings to the real estate market. Thank you, Bill!

Robin H - 5 Stars

Everything you'd want in a real estate agent!
Bill was completely on-the-ball during the whole process of buying our home. He was quick to show us the homes in your price range, provided sensible advice, worked with our complicated schedules, met contractors at the house we made an offer on, since we were out-of-town at the time, dotted all the "i"s and crossed all the "t"s in the contracts, was patient with our questions, and on top of all that, was really fun to work with. We did not purchase a very expensive property, for BV standards, and Bill treated us as if we were high-end buyers. His integrity and work ethic really stood out. I couldn't recommend Bill more highly.
