Our Raving Fans
We have used Brian Ellwanger at Four Sail Realty for three purchases. In the past month, we purchased our forever dream home. Brian and Shari made the process a breeze and there we ZERO problems. We closed on time and everything flowed as smoothly as possible. Brian's strength is his honesty and how down to earth he is. You never feel like you're just a listing. They are a terrific team. In fact, Brian and Shari came in it at our request, to suggest how we might update our house for a sale. We had a buyer within a week of following their suggestions. We can not say enough great things about Brian, Shari and Four Sail Realty.

After dealing with a worthless realtor from one of the big national real estate companies who did nothing to market my property other than waiting for the phone to ring, I gave Brian and Shari a call based on my step daughters experience with them years earlier. They sprung into action, figuring out what needed to be done to sell the property at a reasonable market price. After a mere $500 upgrade to increase the curb appeal, they aggressively marketed it and scheduled an open house. Well, we received and accepted an offer before the open house day even rolled around! Eight days on the market and we were under contract after five weeks without an offer from the lazy realtor we replaced. Brian and Shari kept in constant touch with us throughout the contract period and we closed on time without a hitch. You want a good real estate team? Here it is. You want a lazy realtor who does nothing in your best interest? Go with one of the national real estate companies. Thanks for everything, Four Sail Realty!

We loved working with Kelsey. She set us up on an account to search for houses and I would save the house that I liked and she was looking at the same one at the same time, we were on the same wavelength. Kelsey would only send us houses that were in the price range we wanted to stay in. She would only send me those houses, nothing priced over what we wanted, which was nice to have someone listen to you. We went and looked at houses and I would always asked what the house payment would be after almost every house so I knew what we were getting in too. During the whole process I would ask questions and Kelsey was so patient and she would try and answer all our questions, then if she didn't know the answer she would call and find out then get back to us right away. I am glad we ended up with Kelsey as our agent she really did her job great. I would recommend her to anybody else that I knew was moving and needed an agent.

Brian was absolutely wonderful to work with. I was looking for a realtor that not only understood the Longmont market, but also had a large network to help promote my property. I interviewed several agents and Brian was the only one that truly understood my concerns and could answer my tough questions. He was always available to answer my questions and provided constant updates on the activity of my property while Shari made sure I had dotted all the i's and crossed all the t's with required paperwork and information. They helped me stay one step ahead through the entire process. It was incredible, from list date to close date took less than two weeks and I received multiple great offers. Thank you Brian and Shari for all of your help!!!

Four Sail is great to work with. They offer their advice but also make it very clear that they will take the actions that you choose. I also appreciated their flexibility and patience as I changed my mind multiple times.

Brian is amazing! He helped us with pricing, suggested what fixes we should make and gave us a say in what we as the seller had in mind. Ultimately his expertise in the area sold our house. We can't thank him enough!

First, Brian is a no-pressure real estate agent. With my initial introduction, he listened, offered advice, and never asked me to sign anything. Second, as my home search became difficult and riddled with disappointment, Brian thought outside of the box and went looking for potential sellers that didn't even know they wanted to sell their house. That is how I ended up finding my home, and I am so thankful for his resourcefulness! Last, his negotiation skills left me with no doubt that he had my best interests at heart and was going to go to bat for me. I would highly recommend him to any buyer OR seller - you will be pleased!!
We have bought and sold many houses, working with different Realtors over the years and Kelsey is by far the best Realtor we have had. Kelsey really listens to what you want and delivers. She is never pretentious and always professional. She is knowledgeable about both urban and rural properties. She will four wheel with you to look at a property in the back woods or treat you to a latte and take you to an urban loft. Most important, Kelsey will always answer a phone call or return an email right away and never makes your buying customers wait. Kelsey sold our mountain property with multiple offerers within a week. Kelsey helped us buy a property off the grid with septic and well and the closing went smooth without a single hiccup. We had so much fun looking at properties with Kelsey we can't wait to buy again!

My husband and I were moving from out of state, and knew we needed an agent that would be detailed-oriented and responsive to our needs. We found them when we worked with Brian and Shari! Moving from out of state can be stressful and Brian and Shari actually make it enjoyable. They kept us informed of every deadline that needed to be met and responded to every email very promptly. We are particular about any service provider we work with, and Brian and Shari have spoiled us for anyone else! To say they were professional, courteous and fun to work with is an understatement They are the BEST AGENTS around. Do yourself a favor and contact this dynamic duo for your real estate needs.

We moved to Colorado end of 2012. We rented a place for a year until we could get to know the area etc. We begin looking foat various properties to get an idea of the market etc. Some of the places required that they be presented by a Realtor. I guess we got Lucky because after a bit of searching somehow I got Brian's connection and called him. I briefly explained that we had no intent on moving again and that we were simply trying to get a feel for the market. I also told Brian that I was possibly interested in a couple of rental units. He said he understood and would help us out. He never exppressed any displeasure with us "using" him. To sum up we bought a Townhome for Rental income then we discovered a residence we thought would work for us. It had already been pulled off the market because they had a firm offer on it and would not show it any longer. I asked Brian if there was anything he could do. Brian pulled the Rabbit out of the hat. He convinced them to show it to us. We are now the proud owner of our private residence + a total of 4 rental units all purchased through 4sail Realty. In addition to Brian his Partner Shari is one of the most efficient, caring people I've ever had the pleasure to work with. On more than one occasion she, on her own saved us money on the deal and or at Closing. They are an exceptional team to work with AND they ALWAYS have their clients best interests in mind!

“My wife and I had lived in Colorado for three years. During that time we made a point of visiting many open houses as we were deciding what we wanted, what we didn’t want and where we wanted to be. You can only imagine the number of Real Estate Agents we had met over the years. Some business cards of which we did held onto as prospective agents. On one Sunday morning we ventured out for more open houses and met Brian. We immediately connected and soon after called Brian up for his help in our house hunting. Brian was a great person to work with. He was incredibly patient; taking us to see a ton of houses of all different prices and types before we finally made a decision. He is also very personable, professional, and a fun guy to work with. We liked him so much in fact that we have stayed in contact with him and have become friends. I would definitely recommend Brian to anyone looking to buy or sell a home.”

“Brian has helped me buy three properties and he is my first thought when someone needs a good Realtor or even good real estate advice. My mom just bought a vacation home in the area, and I I told her she should work Brian. She did, and she had a great experience. Great, Great, Businessman. He will work hard for you if you are his customer!”

Brian and Shari,
We can’t thank you enough for helping us find our house when we decided to move from the mountains to the city.

You guys were there for us every step of the way and made us feel as though we were your most important clients! Thank you.

Dear Brian and Shari,
We wanted to thank you for the tremendous job you did in helping us sell our house. When we came to you we had to sell our house quickly because of a job transfer to Philadelphia. We were also panicked because houses on the market were taking an average of 90 to 120 days to sell and we simply could not wait that long.
Your expert advice, knowledge of real estate industry, and current market trends reassured us that things would go well. Indeed, the process of selling our house went better than we could possibly imagine as our house came under contract in 10 days! Of course that is not the end of the story. The buyer was a bear to deal with, asking for many things that we felt were unreasonable. Nevertheless, you consistently and immediately approached every situation with the highest professional demeanor and with our best interest in mind.
Throughout the process you were very candid in discussing the finer points of the real estate industry, were always available, amazingly flexible, and highly motivated to do what ever it would take to sell our house at the price we wanted and in the time we needed.
For all your work we are truly grateful.
