Tell us about your experience with Ben Emslie

    • This process couldn't have went more smooth. Ben is very knowledgeable and professional. Highly recommend if searching for a devoted broker.

      - Kelly Piper
    • When my parents were empty-nesters and looking to downsize, Ben helped them to list their house and buy the home where they live now. They've been raving about him ever since. Seven years later when my husband and I began seriously considering home ownership, I knew I definitely had to call Ben. Ben helped us through the whole process, including getting us through a year-end time-crunch. He was always, knowledgeable, professional, and personable. All the documents that we needed to sign Ben sent to us electronically and then notified us by text message, so that even with two busy work schedules we were able to get almost all of the paperwork signed and returned within minutes. My husband and I are settling into our new home now, and we absolutely love it. Ben has helped two generations of my family, and I would recommend him to anyone.

      - Rachel Garcia
    • Ben was amazing! He listened to our needs and made sure we were able to look at every house on our list. He paid attention to our needs and the house he found us was perfect! Highly recommend Ben!

      - Jessica Edick
    • Ben was a very knowledgeable agent to work with during our recent sale of our home. He stayed on top of things with no detail missed. He is a pleasure to work with and would highly recommend for anyone who is in the market to sell or buy a home.

      - Charles McHenry
    • Ben Emslie was an invaluable resource for my wife and I as we purchased and searched for our first home. Ben was always on time, always dependable and always advocated for us. At each home we viewed, Ben searched every square inch of a home with us and discussed home safety, how the home was heated and cooled, and future repairs or difficulties the home would face. Ben also served as a gateway to helping us find dependable local lenders that ensured our closing would happen on time and at our convenience. Moreover, Ben was an excellent negotiator and saved us time, money, and stress by using digital applications that we could sign at our convenience, as well as contacting the seller's realtor in a timely fashion in order to expedite the signing of agreements and streamline closing cost responsibilities. Whether you are a first time home buyer or an experienced real estate flipper Ben has the most up-to-date knowledge and expertise to make your next home purchase or sale seamless.

      - Andrew Garcia
    • I am delighted with the outstanding service that Ben Emslie has provided as my realtor! A number of years ago, Ben helped me find the perfect home to build. He then listed a rental condominium that I own, and I accepted a cash offer within three days! Most recently, Ben assisted me in making a significant profit in the sale of the original home I built, PLUS, through his exceptional expertise and skill, I'm now living in a wonderful dream home on a large lot with a view! I couldn't be happier! Thank you, Ben...I'm proud to call you, "MY Realtor!"

      - Melody Long
    • I would highly recommend Ben Emslie as your Northern Colorado Realtor. Ben helped my husband and I buy our first home. He listened to what we were looking for and helped us find a house that we love. He is a man of integrity and very knowledgeable as a realtor. He knows what to look for in a home to make sure you are getting what you are looking for. He also took the time to explain the process of buying a home, as we were first time home buyers and was very flexible when it came to showing us a house or meeting us again and again at our new house. So, if you are looking for a knowledgeable, experienced realtor Ben Emslie comes with the highest recommendation!

      - Jeri Bellmore
    • Ben helped my girlfriend and I purchase our first home. He was extremely knowledgeable of the local market and all of his advice proved to be spot on. Throughout the process he was reliable, responsive, and answered all of our questions with accuracy and detail. We would definitely recommend Ben as an agent to anyone!

      - Luke McConnell
    • As a first-time home buyer using a Veteran United Home loan, my family had no idea what to expect when we decided to purchase a home in northern Colorado. Moreover, we were trying to purchase a home while living in a different state. Luckily for us, Ben Emslie with RE/MAX Alliance made the process as painless and straightforward as possible. Ben made himself available at all times and was able to explain the process of purchasing a home in a straightforward, understandable way. Ben, or his helpful staff, would deliver pictures and videos of homes we were interested in, and provide insight to the home and possibilities of putting an offer down. Once we did find a home we liked, Ben was very prompt in getting a solid offer in, and we were able to purchase a home and we couldnt be happier! My family would use Ben Emslie again in the future, and would suggest him to any one of our friends or family.

      - Brian Reyes
    • Ben is a very professional agent but yet very personal, listening to you as his customer. It was a pleasure working with him to sell our home. Details were managed well and in a timely manner. He is very knowledgeable and works with integrity. I would definitely not hesitate to use him again!

      - Jolene McHenry
    • Ben provided us a great home-buying experience! The high touch that is evident in his approach also is a great addition, and I would highly recommend Ben to anyone seeking a real estate agent for any selling and/or buying needs. Thanks Ben for taking good care of us!

      - Paul Hernandez
    • Ben's reputation preceded him as he came highly recommendation by friends and acquaintances. After our first meeting, it was very clear that we had been pointed in the right direction. Ben immediately put my wife and I at ease with his friendly expertise on the home buying process, which meant so much to us as first-time home buyers in an intimidating market. His communication and patience with us throughout the process eventually paid off as we found what we believe to be the perfect home for us in our current stage of life. Overall, Ben displayed a wealth of knowledge and skill in leading us toward an ideal situation. In a competitive market filled with experienced real estate professionals, Ben stands alone. We will definitely stay in contact with him for any real estate needs in the future!

      - Jared Kidwell
    • Ben helped us as we entered the very competitive housing market as first time home buyers. He helped us overcome the intimidation of first time home buying by walking us through the entire process at our first meeting. After only 2-3 weeks of searching, we ended up getting the very first house we made an offer on due to Ben's excellent negotiation skills (I think there were 9 offers on the home in 3 days) and we went under contract at a very reasonable price. Ben was always candid about the homes we looked at, and kept us informed at every step of the process. Ben was very pleasant to work with, always punctual, and I can't imagine a first time home buying experience going any better than ours did!

      - Lauren Bay
    • My family recently purchased our first home in northern Colorado. The market is tough in addition to us having limited knowledge on the home-buying processes. Ben Emslie (RE/MAX Alliance) coached us through the process in addition to providing expertise concerning the current market climate. He worked with us to stay within our budget and make competitive offers. We all persevered together to get us into our first home which we had under contract while living out of state. This allowed us to skip the month-to-month living hassle and get into a home we love. We would recommend Ben to other would-be home buyers.

      - Sharon Bywater-Reyes
    • I LOVE working with Ben! He is so personable and knowledgeable. We have used him for personal and investment properties and always feel so cared for. He wants to find the best home for you and goes the extra mile to help you. I can't imagine using anyone else!

      - Alyssa Hupp
    • Ben was the perfect realtor for our first home purchase. He was very responsive when we had questions and was with us every step of the way. Thanks Ben!!

      - Lauren Longanecker
    • I have worked with Ben with 3 homes now. He is amazing!! He goes out of his way to make sure every detail is taken care of. He always has a smile on his face, is very professional and a pleasure to work with. I highly recommend his services!! You will not be disappointed. He is knowledgeable about the market and has exceptional wisdom. Hes a guy you want in your corner. Give him a call!

      - Sarah V.
    • Ben and his team helped us find our first home. He wasted no time doing the groundwork getting to know us, helping us find a trusted lender and learning the type of home that would be the best fit for us. Because of his efforts, we were able to find the perfect home for our family in a short amount of time. If at any point during the process we had questions or concerns, we voiced them to Ben and he, without fail, worked hard for us to get what we needed and desired. Ben's knowledge, wisdom and experience combined with his incredible character and value for families give him the highest recommendation from me and my family.

      - Ty Bellmore
    • Ben Emslie is a top notch realtor. His knowledge of the northern Colorado market is excellent. He is aware of market trends and pricing resulting in on target pricing and quick sales. His courtesy and caring are evident in every step of the process of selling your house. His positive attitude makes what can be a difficult task much easier. I highly recommend Ben to anyone who is looking for a competent sales experience.

      - Loraine Ertelt
    • Ben waa great from the very beginning. He is very knowledgeable and patient. Ben was very good a getting back to my questions. He negotiated a ton for me and got me my house for a lower price and with appliances. He fought with me through the final stages of underwriting and closing. I would definitely recommend Ben to anyone!

      - Johnny Masters
    • We needed to sell our home so we could move to a new state. Ben did a great jib helping us get our home ready. He knows how to market your home and makes the process better.

      - Laura Ballard
    • I would absolutely recommend Ben. He is a wonderful realtor. He is very easy to work with. He is proactive on your account and will be a great advocate for you during the entire process.

      - Dyllon Martini
    • Ben was amazing while we were trying to buy our house in Colorado Springs. He was able to recommend a realtor for us to use down here since we were new to the area. I know that through his experience he was able to recommend someone who would really take care of us since he knows what it really takes and was not disappointed. Ben knows what it takes to get a competitive offer in and knows what it takes to get a house! Thank you Ben for everything that you have done for us!

      - Matt Voelker
    • Buying a new home can be a nerve racking experience; however, with Ben the process was smooth and enjoyable. He had a ton of patience and was always available to talk with us or show us a house when we needed him to. He always steered us in the right direction and was completely honest when it came to location and prices. After we moved into our new house we noticed that they had taken a "built in bench" with them leaving missing baseboard and holes in the wall. Even though the deal had close Ben still took the time to work with the other agent and get the sellers to replace the bench for us. I would not hesitate to use Ben again in any future Real-estate transactions.

      - Cole Allen
    • Ben made the process of finding a home very easy to understand and was always willing to answer the many questions I had. He always made time to get in touch with me and guided me through all the steps I needed to take.He made paperwork extremely accessible and readily available for me to review and was never pushy about signing something either.Ben knows his stuff and does it well. I highly recommend anyone go to him for their home buying experience.

      - Alex Searles
    • Consider yourself lucky if you end up working with Ben. He made everything so easy and smooth during the entire process. He is very clear, punctual, professional, and an excellent people person. Ben has set the bar pretty high for what an ideal real estate agent should be. What an excellent guy! Ben is the man!

      - Steven Davis
    • Ben was wonderful to work with. He has a lot of experience, so had insight into what was happening with the market, as we had listed at a time where the market had cooled off a bit. He made sure we were listed at the right price point. He helped to keep us focused and took care of so many things along the way. He made sure the photos taken of the house were high quality, and brought out the best in our house. He gave us so many helpful tips going into the whole process, and kept us informed of what people who were looking at our house were saying. He kept in touch with agents who had people who showed interest in our house. Loved the process, and would absolutely recommend Ben to anyone looking for an agent, to help them sell, or buy.

      - Ken Ballard
    • Ben was so great to work with, very knowledgeable and efficient!

      - Lejla Attkisson
    • Ben was instrumental in guiding us through our first home purchase. It was extremely easy to work with him because he wants you to find the house that fits you, he cares that the house will fit both your pocketbook and your household. One of the things that impressed me the most was he engagement in the process and his speed in finding out information and getting back in touch with us, we never had to wait for Ben to get back in touch with us, it de-stresses the whole home buying process to know that someone will be there on the other end of the line or in person to answer your questions. Ben is a great guy and a great realtor.

      - Joshua Longanecker
    • From the beginning Ben was personal, easy to talk to and honest. He listened to what we were looking for in our first home and was easy to get ahold of when we had questions. When walking through each home, Ben could point out positive and negative things, give feedback, give rough price quotes to fix things, be honest about value, and let us make the decision without any pressure. When we decided on a home, his skill in negotiating and getting us to closing without any hiccups was amazing. Thank you Ben for helping us get the perfect house for us!

      - Naomi Morton
    • Ben was fantastic to work with. He seemed more like a trusted friend that our realtor. He did a great of walking as through the entire process and we are extremely happy with the property we found while working him. Thanks Ben!

      - Michael Coffman
    • As a single mother and veteran buying a home for the first time on my own, I could absolutely rely on Ben through the entire process. Not only did he understand and have insight on the market but he was very knowledgeable about the details to look at within a home. Very quickly it was clear that the home I wanted was not on the market, so Ben helped me with finding a builder and then going through the building process. He made this process easy and then helped guide me through the VA process (also an intimidating process that he made easy for me). In the end, Ben was a fierce advocate for me and my family that resulted in my family's best interests being served.

      - Angela Vaughan
    • My husband and I were so overwhelmed by the whole house buying process and had no idea where to start. That is where Ben really helped us out; he was able to meet us where we were and guide us throughout the entire process. I wasnt entirely sure what we were looking for, but Ben was able to ask us the appropriate questions to understand what would fit us best. He was always available to answer questions, would respond to my texts within minutes, and happy to show us houses on the weekends. When we were looking at homes, Ben would point out negative and positive things to us that we would have never noticed. He even helped with interior design questions I had; he was very knowledgeable with decorating tips. I would highly recommend working with Ben Emslie. He made house hunting surprisingly enjoyable and memorable!

      - Emilie Allen
    • Ben was very knowledgeable about the whole house buying process as well as in home value. He was able to meet us and work for us at a moment's notice plus he knew what things to look for in a property that we as first time home-buyers would have never thought about (HOA neglect, flow of floor plans, heating and cooling systems, etc...).His likable demeanor and laid-back attitude made the process smooth and unforced. We never felt any pressure from him, and came to the point where we trusted his input and felt like he was acting in our best interest. I would definitely recommend Ben as a realtor especially to first time home owners.

      - Ryan Allen
    • We highly recommend Ben Emslie. We were looking for a house while still living out of state and Ben helped make this process very smooth and stress free. He was always happy to answer questions and responded very quickly via email or text messages. Ben is friendly, a great communicator and kept us updated with all the different stages of buying a home. Once we were interested in a house, Ben took several video tours for us of the house, basement and neighborhood. That was very helpful since it was not easy for us to just drop by to check the house out in person.

      - Tatjana Bakke
    • Ben was a complete pleasure to work with. Very knowledgeable in his field. Communication could not of been better, by far the best realtor Ive ever worked with. Thanks Ben for helping me get my dream home!JimmyBigTime

      - James Sadrieh
    • As a first time home buyer I had no idea what I was doing, but Ben made the process easy and understandable. He was able to help me figure out what I was looking for when I wasn't totally sure. He answered questions and helped to point out things I would't have noticed. I trust Ben to do his absolute best to find the place perfect for you! I would 100% recommend him!

      - Hillary Coffman
    • WELL, WE'RE BACK! Two years later in Highlands Ranch.Decided to move again! Ben got us up and running in no time! Had a Photographer right away. On the market Saturday. Signed, Full Price Contract by Sunday at 4pm! Closing is next Friday. Total Perfection. Our other Verona Neighbors have had their homes on the market for Months. Others just gave up and took them off the market until things for Verona started to pick up. I'm sure that Ben can help some of them out!!

      - Bobby Kleewein
    • Absolutely wonderful to work with! Went above and beyond to ensure an extremely smooth transition! Would recommend to anyone looking at purchasing a home.

      - Kendra A.
    • Ben was great to work with. every question I had, he always had the answer and quick!! with me working out of state, he worked around my schedule . from the time we found the house to closing , was about a month. TOTALLY AMAZING!!!!If I was wanting to purchase another house "hopefully not any time soon" I would use Ben Emslie. I would recommend Ben to all my family and friends.Thanks for everything.Randy Foster

      - Randy Foster
    • Ben was very professional and knowledgeable about all aspects of the real estate market in Northern Colorado. Ben's helpfulness, insight and integrity are second to none ! Ben was in our corner every step of the way making sure we got the best deal possible for the best house that would meet our buying criteria.The bottom line : You can fully trust Ben as an honest professional who has your best interest in mind with any transaction he is involved with.

      - Wayne Davis
    • So this is going to be short...Ben was great! from day 1 to closing day was fast and furious, in a great way. He gave honest opinions of each home we looked at, zero pressure, and just a real person with a real family of his own that he spoke of often, that's a big deal to me as I have no time for fake people, especially in making major financial decisions. Hopefully we never have to move again, but if we do...Ben's the man.

      - Kelly Foster
    • I worked with Ben a few months ago to purchase a home in the Ft. Collins area. The couple of months I worked with him were excellent. After one meeting, Ben had already figured out what we were looking for, and a day later he had already a list of places to look at. We are picky buyers, however his patience was very calming to us, as he did not add any stress or rush into the process. Very good knowledge of the Ft. Collins area, and based on budget, very selective on good properties to see. He made himself available anytime we needed him or we wanted to see some places and his recommendations were always spot on once we looked into the properties. Needless to say, we ended up purchasing a condo and we can't me happier about the whole process. Great experience and made the purchasing process very easy and super manageable.

      - Carlos M. Vivas
    • Ben was fantastic to work with. He was knowledgeable and professional through the entire process. He was responsive and thorough in answering all our questions and walking us through our real estate transaction. I highly recommend him.

      - Jessica Harris
    • When my wife and I started looking for homes, we weren't sure who to turn to for help. We were glad we chose Ben, as his 15 years of experience was evident every step of the way. He was (and still his) extremely attentive and responsive to questions and concerns. He answered almost everything immediately and made sure to follow up on anything he didn't know. As one example: when our appraisal came in low, we suddenly had to come up with more cash to close. He negotiated the extra cost down with the seller and revised the paperwork to completely eliminate our shortfall of upfront cash.All in all I highly recommend Ben if you are looking to buy a home in the Northern Colorado area!

      - Jeremy Carlston
    • We dont live in Northern Colorado and so we were totally reliant upon Ben to sell our home. He took care of everything and kept us up-to-date during the listing and sale process. He was always available to answer questions and/or to give a quick status update. We appreciate all of the work he put in to help sell our home!

      - Edita Baltzer
    • I couldn't have asked for a better experience. Ben was perfect to work with. This was our first time on the selling side, and Ben's expertise and wisdom really paid off. We ultimately deferred to Ben on a number of issues and this trust really paid off. Ben was very responsive, professional, exceeded all deadlines and kept us in the loop on everything, providing invaluable insights along the way. We are so thankful for him and highly recommend him.

      - Jason Harris
    • Working with Ben was a pleasure. He made selling our home from a distance simple and essentially worry-free. He was always quick to respond to our many questions by phone, email and text, which helped set us at ease. Ben knew just how to position our house in the N. Colorado market to be most attractive to potential purchasers. We so appreciated his professionalism and caring attitude.

      - Ron Baltzer
    • Ben is an awesome real estate agent and an amazing person! I highly recommend him! After first meeting and talking with Ben, he understood exactly what we were looking for, which made our home search very efficient. His wealth of knowledge about the real estate market helped re-assure us that we were making a strategic, well-informed investment. Unlike many other agents who bombarded me with emails and phone calls, Ben asked how frequent we would like to be contacted and notified of updates, etc and was very respectful of our time. Ben knows quality construction, pays close attention to detail, and pointed out things I would have never recognized. Ben made finding and buying our home a stress-free experience. Highly recommend!

      - Megan Machmuller
    • As a first time home buyer, Ben was incredibly helpful as we looked for a home that fit our budget and our needs. He walked us through the process and educated us on different loan options. Ben helped us think of factors we hadn't thought of before when deciding between our two favorite homes. He was flexible, helpful, and prompt when we came to him with questions. Thank you, Ben!
