Why Work With Us?
Here's what our satisfied customers are saying about us:
"I had a fantastic experience working with Kate and the Alvarado Group. Kate is extremely knowledgeable about the market and all of the details of the home buying, and negotiation process. She is just great to have on your side. She is prompt, very professional, and a pleasure to work with! As a buyer, my path for finding a new home was long and Kate stuck with me through the entire process. She always put my best interest first and I ended up very happy with my new home! Thank you so much Kate and the Alvarado Group!"
“Brett, thank you for helping us find our dream home! We truly appreciate your patience, humor, and expertise throughout the process. We’re so grateful for your guidance and couldn’t be happier!”

"April Johnson with the Alvarado Real Estate Group was much more than just our Realtor, she was our project manager. April helped us figure out exactly what we needed to do to sell our house. She helped keep us organized and on task. She recommended a painter, a mason, and a roofer for our renovations. They were all very friendly and affordable, and most importantly, did a great job. April has experience in horticulture and offered great advice on landscaping to add curb appeal. I called her all the time to ask questions. She was always really good about answering my calls. I remember standing in Menards feeling bewildered about which faucet to buy, I called April and she steered me in the right direction.
When it came to buying our house, she was so good. April was our voice of reason when a house wasn’t a good investment; even if we really liked it. We found a house to buy before ours was even ready to go on the market. April negotiated an offer to purchase with a contingency of our house selling. We had many showings and multiple offers even though it was just before the holidays! Our house sold for $37,500 more than what we bought it for a year and a half prior (April was our realtor then too). We were also able to buy our new house for less than the asking price, including a major repair, and with our contingency! All of this happened in only four months. If you are looking to buy or sell, or both, I highly recommend April as your realtor. You won’t regret it."

"Julie was amazing. She did a wonderful job listening to our request and found us our dream home. I will tell everyone interested in selling or buying a home about Julie. We are completely satisfied. I am still amazed that Julie was able to find us a home with all of our requests within such a short period of time. In addition, she was very support throughout the whole process from our first meeting until closing."

"Thank you Julie for all you did for my daughter. The house is awesome and I know she is very proud and happy, which means the world to me."
"Julie is wonderful! Julie met all our needs to help us in the purchase of our new home and sale of our current house, we had a lot of balls in the air, but Julie put us at ease and made it all seem easy! I can’t imagine working with another agent. She was beyond helpful and went above & beyond for us, we are so grateful she was our agent. Thank you, thank you to Julie Colmar, our realtor and extraordinary friend, who held our open house on a Sunday and had 3 offers for us the next day, I truly can't thank her enough."

"Ms. Colmar was very helpful. She is exceptionally friendly and easy to work with. Julie is very knowledgeable about the process and she found us homes to view with our desired qualities. Julie is exceptional with communication and made the whole process of finding and buying a new home very smooth. We would definitely work with her again."

"Julie was great, provided me with a tour of properties in the right area, with the price range in mind. She was punctual, knowledgeable, attentive, accommodating and very patient. She also followed up with any additional questions that I had about the properties. We loved Julie from the very first time we met with her and just knew it was an instant match!"
- Shannyn & Aaron
"Working with Julie Colmar to find our new home was a great experience. I knew I liked her from day one. She was quick to respond no matter what time or in what way we contacted her. She made herself available around our schedules and met us whenever and wherever we chose. When we had an accepted offer on the home we chose, she was so excited for us. She was truly an ally throughout the process. I will be handing her card out to my friends who are looking to move."
