I am very pleased with Mrs. Barbara and Mrs. Wendy. They went ALL out their way every day to make our home selling process less stressful. They were a pleasure to work with and became family instead of a business move. Furthermore, being in the Air-Force I didn’t have much time to relocate and they made it a breeze for my family and I. If I ever come back to Colorado to live. I will call them back with NO hesitation. Thank you ALL for what you have done. I have already recommended EVERYONE on Peterson AFB to Mrs. Barbara and her team. They will go out their way and beyond to make you happy. If I could give more than a 5 star rating .. I definitely would. God Bless !!!!!!
This was, by far the best experience we have ever had selling a home. We decided to move back closer to family and needed to sell our mountain home in Crystal Park. Barb and her team were amazing and made the entire process so easy. She sold our home in just a few weeks for top dollar while we were away much of the time. We highly recommend Barb Schlinker and her entire Team!

It was refreshing to work with Barb and her team at Your Home Sold Guaranteed. She sold our home for $17000 over asking price in a short time and everything went smoothly. We loved how she took the time to measure the home to make sure it was marketed at the right size and the photos were amazing. Barb was able to get a huge crowd at the open house which got us several great offers to choose from. Then she handled the sales process every step of the way for us and make it simple and easy. We highly recommend Barb and her team.

Our townhome was getting too crowded for our family. Barb’s team helped us stage it, suggested some repairs to get the most money from selling. In just 1 week our townhome sold for the highest amount of any townhome in that neighborhood.

Barb was able to sell our home for over asking price and make sure everything went well. She provides so many extra services like cleaning and handling little repairs to ensure we got the home sold. She even covered the expenses in advance for a small area of fresh carpet to ensure the buyers would be delighted to pay full price for the home. All the way through the process we received support from Barbs team from making sure the home was ready for showings as well as communicating issues that came up. In the end, Barb was able to get us over $5000 more than expected and we are delighted it is sold and completed.
Larry & Kathy
Barb went above and beyond to help sell our house. Great communication, very professional & knowledgeable, she has a great team working for her. Incredible service, we give her a 10 out of 10, score. We definitely would recommend her! We have dealt with a lot of realtors and Barb and her team are at the top of the list. Thank you, Barb!!!

It was time for us to sell the inherited home our parents had owned and the home we grew up in. It was a challenge for us since we all lived in different locations out of town. We hired Barb and her team to sell our home and she sold it in a few weeks for full asking price and it closed on time. They handled everything for us. We did not have to return to visit the property or even attend the closing. We highly recommend Barb and her team.
We were facing a short-notice PCS transfer to another state with the Army. After seeing Barb's videos on YouTube about selling a home we know Barb was the only choice for us. Barb's marketing was able to get us multiple offers over asking price the first weekend. All went as planned we were able to buy our new home just days after Barb sold our home.
We had our remodeled home on the market for months over the summer. There were over 100 showings but now offers. We called Barb to help and we are so glad we did. She put in staging furniture, took some great photos and exposed our home to her database of buyers in waiting. Our home sold in 1 week for $10,000 over asking price.

Barb is calmly confident and competent. Her knowledge of her craft is very impressive. We have sold two houses using her services, and I can assure anyone wishing to sell their property, they will be impressed and happy with the process and the results if they use Barb as their real estate agent.
We needed to sell our 3rd story condo so we could buy our ranch style home. The former agent we hired could not sell it and only suggested to lower the price to get it sold. We hired Barb and we are so glad we did. She helped us do some updates that would command the highest sales price and her team sold it quickly at the full asking price.
2949 Mesa Rd #C, - Keith & Lisa Sheldon
We are so pleased that we worked with Barb Schlinker to sell our home at 1450 Masters Drive in Woodland Park. Barb and her team go to great lengths to ensure the home is presented to the market in such a way to command top dollar for the home. From the elegant video production, great photos and beautiful pictures, it all went very well. Barb was able to negotiate for us to stay in the home well after closing allowing us to move to our next location at a comfortable pace. Barb Schlinker and Tom Parker were great to work with to get my home sold. They did an excellent job on photos and marketing. I had previously tried with another agent that resulted in no sale. But when I hired Barb and Tom everything went as planned. When it turned out I needed a new roof, they suggested a roofing company that was able to finish the job quickly and minimize my out-of-pocket expenses. I was able to sell my home for top dollar and they helped me prepare for my move. I highly recommend Barb Schlinker and her team to sell your home.
It was time for us to downsize and sell our Fountain home and move closer to our grandkids. We heard about Barb Schlinker on Richard Randall’s show. We hired Barb to sell our home in Fountain and buy another home. She sold our home sold for $5000 over asking price in the 1st weekend. Timing the move so we did not have to move twice was a challenge, especially because we had to complete an insurance claim from last summer’s hail damage. Barb’s team handled everything and was able to close on time and move straight into our new home. We highly recommend Barb Schlinker.

After trying to sell our home previously and unsuccessfully with another agent, we are so delighted we called Barb. Very quickly Barb and her team helped with updated staging and great marketing. Barb was able to get a bidding war on our home in just a few weeks, and it sold for over asking price. The entire transaction was handled smoothly and closed on time. We highly recommend Barb.

We are so glad we hired Barb and her team to sell our home on Borrego Drive. We felt so comfortable we moved out of the state before showing, she had 79 people attend the open house and she sold our home the first weekend for $66,500 over asking price and it closed on time in just 3 weeks!
John and Bobbie
We hired Barb to sell our home in Security. We accepted 1 cash offer within 30 hours of listing and it sold for $11,000 over our asking price. Her staff was wonderful and we were thankful for the use of her convenient moving truck. We highly recommend using Barb Schlinker to sell your home.
Dennis & Joan Musick
Barb Schlinker and her great team were very helpful in getting us ready to go on the market and she has amazing marketing that attracts the buyers. She got a huge crowd of buyers to view our home and we were able to select the best buyer for our home. She not only sold our home for $50,000 over asking price the first weekend but she was able to negotiate for us to stay in the home for weeks after closing to accommodate a smooth moving process. We are so thankful we hired Barb Schlinker and her team at Your Home Sold Guaranteed Realty.
Lance & Shirley
I needed to downsize into a less expensive home. I’m so glad I hired Barb Schlinker and Tom Parker to handle my transition to my new home. They took care of everything for me including coordinating repairs and providing space to store my things during the move. My home sold very quickly and now I am living in a much smaller place that is much more affordable and in a great location.

3570 Painted Daisy – After hearing Richard Randall talk about Barb on the radio I knew I had to call her. She sold my Pine Creek home in just 3 days at full asking price and made the process so easy.
3570 Painted Daisy – Daniel Jump
We heard about Barb on the radio and asked her to help us sell mine and my Mom’s home next door. She helped us prepare our homes for sale so they showed really well. Barb had at least 80 people in at the Open House and both homes sold for way over asking price in just a few days. Her team helped with the entire process and we were able to make our next move as scheduled.

After hearing Barb on the radio where she outlined her methods for selling homes, I am so pleased that we hired her to handle the sale of our home. We had already moved out, and she and her team installed very attractive staging furniture so it showed beautifully. In just one short week. Barb obtained several buyers competing for our home and she sold our home for $5000 over asking price. Her team handled everything from there and made the process very easy. Having Barb handle the sale of our home gave me great peace-of-mind throughout the entire process.

After another broker missed the entire selling season by moving too slow, we hired Barb and she quickly helped us get the home on the market and looking great! It sold for over asking price in just 10 days. Barb and her team took care of all the details and the closing were very smooth and easy.
5183 Solar Ridge – Steve & June Hales
We are so glad we hired Barb Schlinker to handle the sale of our home. We were on a short time crunch to sell right when the market was slowing down. It was great that Barb’s knowledge of pricing got us the highest price for our home in the shortest amount of time. Barb will not hesitate to resolve issues quickly when they arise. After moving out we discovered the washer and dryer should have been left but was loaded on the truck. Barb took charge of the problem and quickly purchased a used set for us that satisfied the contract and had it installed in 1 day. By her team’s swift action, she ensured a smooth and timely closing.
Bill & Sherie
We hired Barb to sell our home in Calhan. We got several great offers and it sold for $15,000 over our asking price in just 5 days. Having formerly been a Real Estate agent, it was so refreshing to have a great agent like Barb who fought for us all the way to closing. She was so helpful and professional. Barb was always available when we needed anything or had questions. We highly recommend using Barb Schlinker to sell your home.
Paul & Sandi Billig
Barb sold our townhome in 3 days at $6000 over asking price setting a new high price for the townhome complex. Her team made the process so smooth and easy. We highly recommend Barb’s team to sell your home.
5214 Dovetail Ln, Colorado Springs, CO 80916 – Kate & Greg Fall
We called Barb a few months before we planned to sell to make sure the sale was timed to happen with our military transfer out of state. Barb made sure all the staging and photos were done to perfection, on time! Our home sold at over asking price in just 5 days! We highly recommend Barb!
4047 Charleston Drive – Diego & Diane Balderas
We talked to several agents but it was clear Barb has the best marketing to get us the most money. Best of all....she sold our home for at $30,000 over what the other agents said it was worth. We moved out and left the home in her hands. Barb and her team were amazing and we did not have to worry about anything. While we were enjoying family in another state, Barb's team sold our home and it closed in just 3 weeks! We highly recommend Barb and her team!
Dennis and Angie Snyder
Barb and her team at Parker St. Claire come highly recommended. After accepting a job out of state we needed to quickly get our home on the market. We heard an ad for Barb on the radio and gave her a call. She was at our home the next day. Barb was friendly and knowledgable of the local market. She’s very detailed and brought with her a ton of information so we could price our home to sell. The home was staged and professionally photographed to highlight all the special features inside and out. Barb and her staff were always available for questions and even moved the last bit of furnishings to a storage unit for us just before closing! Not sure you’ll find a more helpful real estate broker/agent – give Barb a call!
191 Elk Lane, Woodland Park, CO - Tony & Shari K
I needed to downsize to a smaller home. Barb and her team were so helpful. She showed us how to get the home ready to sell. It worked out so well that she sold my home for $15,400 over asking price in just a few days. She then went on to find a great deal on a smaller, brand new home. It was great to be able to use her moving van. Barb worked it out so we could move right into the new one early on the day of closing! I highly recommend Barb, Wendy and the whole team...
As a busy professional living in Denver, I had very little time to deal with selling my rental townhome. Barb and her team took care of everything, met the former tenant to turn over the property, took care of repairs, installed attractive staging furniture, took great photos and the results were excellent! She sold my townhome in a very short time at a full asking price. I closed remotely without even visiting the property. I highly recommend Barb Schlinker.
