I did my research before choosing Michael Winslow as our realtor and that research definitely paid off! He was very professional, knowledgeable, and did a great job helping us get our home ready for sale. We were under contract for full asking price in only 4 days! You couldn’t ask for anything more! Thanks to Michael and the Blue Picket team.

Michael Winslow was the best real estate agent I have ever dealt with. He is very personable and responsive, and took us under his wing with a exceptional flow of communications, responding immediately to our needs and questions. He also has a helpful list of excellent resource worker bees who did house cleaning, handyman work and trash hauling when it was needed.
Michael was very knowledgeable about the current market, and surpassed expectations. We definitely recommend him to anyone looking for a great real estate agent!

We always wondered about the credibility of ratings and reviews available online when researching individuals at firms. The reason we chose Michael Winslow at Blue Picket Realty in Colorado Springs was because he had so many great reviews. We live out of state and thought reading reviews online was a good way to chose the right realtor for the condo we wanted to find. So, based on many outstanding reviews, we called him. Well, we can now confirm all those outstanding reviews were credible and honest. We would like to add an outstanding review of Michael to the long list of others. From the very first phone call, Michael was very personable as well as professional. We were looking to start our search immediately, and he made himself available to us later that afternoon. Every text or phone call made to him was responded to quickly. He was knowledgeable and offered his opinions as well. What really made this such an enjoyable experience in addition to his knowledge and availability was his very pleasant and friendly personality. Nothing seemed to stress him out; he was quite relaxed even when we had missed electronically signing several papers the day of closing! He assured us everything would work out, and it did! We are now happy owners of a condo that suits our family's needs perfectly! Our sincere thanks to Michael for making this experience a great one for our family! If we could give him 10 stars, we would!

We just bought our second home here in Colorado Springs, Michael was our Realotor. This is the second time we’ve worked with Michael. I don’t even know where to begin to tell you how awesome Michael is. He is knowledgeable, kind, and a true professional plus Michael is great with our 7 year old son. We spent about 2 months house hunting with Michael and although it was long and emotional journey- it was a ton of fun with Michael. He listened to our needs and wants and then advised us when and where we needed it. Should I ever buy or sell another house Michael will always, always, ALWAYS be my first and last call. A true pleasure to work with. You’d be dumb to call anyone else. Thanks Michael for all you do and did do! We appreciate you!

I just wanted to take a moment to write this unsolicited letter of appreciation to my realtor Micheal Winslow. If you recognize my name it’s because I wrote a letter of appreciation to Micheal when my husband and I purchased our first home in Fountain, Colorado. Michael was the agent and he made a stressful process easier especially since my husband was deployed for the majority of the process. This meant more legal matters in addition to the regular administrative and financial issues one deals with when purchasing a home. Micheal was there for the entire process and gave his honest opinion on the homes we looked at, the repair cost if any, and educated us on what we really should focus on when purchasing a home. It was enlightening and educational even though we were seasoned home-buyers and educated on the process. To be honest, I fell in love with the home we just sold the moment I set eyes on it. However, at Micheal’s urging I looked at another builder as a comparison to ensure that I didn’t make a hasty decision in a moment of emotion, and because of that I was confident from the time we made an offer to the time we signed the paperwork.
Once my husband and I decided to re-locate, we called Michael to help us with the tasks of selling our home. Again, he discussed market prices, values, and timing, as one would expect with an agent; however, he went above and beyond when helping us negotiate the best price. He was meticulous and looked at the offers from all angles, offered advice, and then stepped back to let us make the decision. He is intimately familiar with the real estate market in Colorado Springs and a blessing if one is new to the area or trying to conduct business long-distance or remotely. Again, my husband and I couldn’t be happier. Michael’s professionalism is unquestionable, his integrity is evident, and I have and will continue to recommend him to my family and friends, and of course if I ever return to Colorado my family and I will use his services again.

Rena, thank you! What a very nice letter. It has truly been a joy to work with you and your family since you first came here. I'm sad that you are leaving the area, but I look forward to keeping in touch. Do let me know if you ever make it back to Colorado. Keep in touch!!

We were lucky enough to have Mike literally walk into our lives when he got hired to sell the home we were renting at the time. Instead of just selling the home and looking past us, he stopped to ask us what our plan was. We had been teetering back and forth between renting again or buying our first house and we needed help. He took my boyfriend and I under his wing and helped us way more than I had imagined he would. We were also super tight on time, we had 2 months to make this all happen, so his honesty, advice, and professionalism were all imperative to the process. He personally drove us to about 7 homes one weekday and that was when we found our perfect house. He takes his job very seriously, and without that we could have been left in a terrible situation where things didn't line up properly, and we would have been renting a storage pod and staying in a hotel. I am so grateful that we got connected with Mike and NONE of my worst nightmares even came close fruition. Mike also stays in contact with us even after we've made our purchase. We know we can reach out to him and ask any questions we have. If he doesn't have an answer, he connects us to someone who does. I really cannot say enough about our experience, only that I will always feel grateful that we met Mike instead of someone else. Timely, efficient, friendly, personable, professional, empathetic, open, and understanding are just a few words to describe this wonderful person. Don't worry about anything if Mike is your agent, you will be taken care of!

Michael knows what he is talking about. He knows the Colorado Springs market, he knows when to list and what a house needs to show well. We were out of town sellers, and he went above and beyond to take care of some of the details and get repair estimates, etc. when we needed someone local. Lastly, he is kind, genuine and thoughtful about what is best and fair for all involved in the transaction. A true professional and a pleasure to work with. Hire him.

Michael Winslow is a dynamic, caring, patient, positive, constructive, communicative, and knowledgeable real estate professional that is also flexible, leveraging phone, email, text message.

Ours was not your typical home sale experience. The night before closing a hail storm pummeled our home and delayed closing by a month. Throughout the process of dealing with submitting the insurance claim, claims adjuster, working with contractors, etc. Michael helped us respond in a timely manner to questions, requests, etc. from the buyer's agent, and title company.

Michael helped us maintain a positive outlook, seeing things from all party's perspectives, and encouraging us with his friendly demeanor, understanding disposition, and insight.

If you want to work with a true professional that authentically cares for you, your family, and your home ownership goals, then Michael Winslow is your go-to guy! Give him a call today and allow him to guide you along the path to your next home!

Michael is a blessing to the real estate industry. As a lender in Colorado Springs I have worked closely with Michael to put people into their dream homes and it's an absolute joy. Michael goes above and beyond for every client every time. He truly takes interest in his clients and ensures they have a smooth transaction. Michael continues to assist his buyers and sellers even after their sale is finalized which is unheard of, it shows his commitment and passion for his job.

I have known Michael for years and he has been helping me with various real estate interests for as long as I've worked with him. When it was time to sell my house it was a no-brainer that he would be my seller's agent. When we published the MLS listing I had two other identical townhouses in my neighborhood on the market to compete with. Michael went above and beyond in taking good pictures and producing a quality MLS that set itself apart from the other homes in my area. All three of the houses were listed at the same price and Michael managed to get mine under contract in 10 days at asking price before the other two even received offers. Michael even bent over backwards to work the closing around my crazy schedule that has me out of the country 3+ weeks a month. I'll definitely be working with him again.

Michael was a true blessing when it came to selling our home. We had a rental house in Colorado Springs but lived in Phoenix, Arizona. Michael bent over backwards to help us get our house ready to sell and he knew the correct people to call for whatever service our house needed (electricians, windows, roofers and painters). When it came time to put the house on the markets, Michael got our house sold in one weekend. There is no one I would recommend more than Michael when it comes to selling or buying a home in Colorado! He walks you through every step of the process. Michael is honest, has great communications and he really makes you feel as though you are his only client. Michael really saved us by helping us to sell our home. You would be crazy to use anyone else besides Michael Winslow at Blue Picket Realty!!!!

I cannot express just how fortunate we were to work with Michael. The moment we met with him it was clear we made the right choice. He was extremely attentive and caring. Being first time home buyers we needed someone to not only explain more than usual but someone who was there to 'hold our hand' through the process. Michael did both without hesitation. Michael answers his phone when you call and answers all other communication very quickly. You will feel as though you are his only client no matter his schedule. What an incredible experience. My wife and I have found someone for all our realtor needs for as long as Michael decides to do this. Do yourself a favor and hire Michael.

Mike was a personal, competent and confident guy. We felt like we could ask him any questions about the sale of our house. He was the main reason we got our house to sell within 3 days for the full price. He went above and beyond because he knew we had to sell quick because of our time schedule. I also recommend him to any military personnel in the area. We will definitely recommend him to our friends and neighbors!! There are many realtors out there who sweet talk and try to give unrealistic prices, not Mike Thanks Mike!!

I had the pleasure of working with Michael Winslow of Blue Pickett Realty in the winter of 2016. My wife and I were in the process of selling our rental home in Colorado Springs. I was deployed and my family was out of state. Based on a recommendation from our property manager, we selected Michael as our realtor. Michael is the consummate professional – friendly, extremely knowledgeable about the market, and a very good negotiator. His strongest attribute is his communication skills. He constantly pushed information to us and kept us informed. We had a great experience with Michael throughout the process of selling our home. I offer my strongest possible recommendation for Michael Winslow. We plan to retire in Colorado Springs in the next five years and we will DEFINITELY use Michael as our realtor again.

My husband and I have never cared for realtors in the past, so when we met Michael we were very pleased! When we flipped a house last year, he showed it to his client. We liked him so much we hired him. He is professional, very knowledgeable and fun to be around! We recommend him to everyone.

Michael was very tenacious trying to sell our home which we had been trying to sell for about 6 years. Thanks to his help, it finally sold. We are so grateful for his support...he went above and beyond in helping us ensure the house was taken care of and all the little issues were addressed satisfactorily in support of the sale. Thanks for everything, Michael!!

Michael just sold our home in less than two weeks and it was his hard work, attention to detail, and friendly demeanor that helped us sell the home so quickly. Michael is not the trophy wife in a Cadillac escalade agent type who sees you only as a dollar sign. Michael was truly vested in our home and was available 24 hours a day regardless of the issue. His communication skills are excellent and I don't know of a more down to earth friendly guy. My family considers him a friend and I wouldn't hesitate to let Michael sell my house again. If Michael didn't know the answer he quickly got back to me and made it happen. I'm active duty military an he was familiar with some of our needs and I would never use anybody but Michael again for my real estate needs.

We were moving to the Colorado Springs area but didn't know any one we could trust in our search. We were planning to go it alone and meet someone along the way who could help us until we met met Michael Winslow. We felt the connection immediately. Michael was a wealth of knowledge of not only the Colorado Springs area, but also about real estate in general. He was able to set up a search according to the style and price range that we were looking for. Each time we found a home, Michael would show it to us until we finally found the one we fell in love with and made our decision to buy it. Michael advised us how to make an acceptable offer, and after the owners agreed, helped us with the inspection and navigation around any potential land-mines and hurdles. What a blessing he was. Thank you Michael for all your help!

Hands down the best help in buying a home that you could ask for. Extremely professional, courteous, considerate, honest, easy to work with, and an exceptionally friendly personality. If you are looking for a good real estate agent, just give him a call and speak with him for 5 minutes, and you'll be sold. When searching for my home, I was able to share all of my thoughts and concerns, and he was able to find me exactly what my wife and I desired. His expertise and knowledge also opened my eyes to the areas that I was looking at and several things about the house I bought. His honesty and faithfulness to me as a home-buyer gave my wife and I complete confidence and peace in what could have been a very stressful transition to a new home. Working with Michael has been a wonderful experience, and I could not recommend him more to anyone looking to buy a home!
