Helped me buy home
I began working with Hayley in mid 2014 to help me start the process of finding and purchasing my first home. From the very first meeting with Hayley I was super impressed with her approachability and her knowledge of the area that I was looking to purchase a home in. I felt and knew that Hayley was an honest agent with my best interests at heart from the get go which was an amazing feeling. Over the months, Hayley not only helped me look at properties that I might be interested in but she became an awesome resource and educator to me about everything entailed in the process of purchasing a home. Because of her my process seemed painless and Hayley was there every step of the way! When Hayley couldn't be there - her awesome partner - Natalie was a great help and I didn't feel that I was dealing with two different people but instead working with a great team. I recently closed on my house (new construction; Ryland homes build) in Lafayette, CO and I am very happy with the outcome. Hayley helped me find a great home and I'm very glad to have worked with her and plan to continue doing business with her going forward. Sincerely, Tehmasp Chaudhri Lafayette, CO Less ... More

We were first time buyers who went with Natalie off the recommendation from a pair of close friends. She was absolutely great to work with. We have a busy schedule, but she was always flexible with her time. She also quickly recognized what each of us wanted in a first home (we bought the property at 10717 Owens St). Because of that, on a day my wife couldn't attend showings she still felt safe putting out an offer on our future house that Natalie and I saw earlier in the day; only partly because she trusts me, more because she knew Natalie wouldn't let me do anything dumb. She always knew what to look for in a house and there was never any pressure. Hopefully I won't need her services for another decade or two, but I'd absolutely use her again. Less ... More

We worked with Hayley to perform a market review of a rental we were living in so that we could make an offer to the owner for purchase. What we found was that what he had thrown out in terms of the value of the property was pretty far from comparable listings in the area. Hayley came to our first meeting with a bound document of area listings, an evaluation or our property and a summary of her suggestions. She was professional, organized, responsive and communicative. As a result of that first impression, we ended up using Hayley in our first home search and ultimately the purchase. She was patient and helpful in the search to find the right home for us, and when it came time to negotiate she was able to get a deal we thought was mutually beneficial. Her years of experience, knowledge and connections also allowed us to work with a fantastic lender with whom we've worked to refinance our home since the original purchase. Hayley is a consummate professional with all of the tools you need to buy or sell a home. I'd recommend her to anyone, and I will absolutely use her again. Less ... More

Natalie did an amazing job selling our house. She is strategic, well informed, and always available to help. Natalie brought in a stager and a wonderful photographer who helped make our home look its best. She knew the market well and was able to help us price the house well for the market. We ended up with 9 offers in one weekend. Of those nine offers 7 were over asking price. Natalie was very responsive to our questions. At one point she even came by because I was nervous about how a floor wax I had used looked on the floor. I highly recommend you use Natalie as your Realtor. Less ... More

We worked with Natalie to purchase a house in an intensely competitive market. She was extremely knowledgable and patient with us, taking the time to really listen and understand our needs and wants in a house. Throughout the process of looking at prospective homes, she was encouraging and unbiased. She let us express our own opinions without getting sales-y. Her interest was not just in finding us a house to buy, but to truly find something that would be a great fit both financially and as a home for our growing family. She was extremely helpful throughout the whole process. We honestly cannot recommend her enough! Less ... More

For anyone in need of a realtor I would highly recommend Natalie Olsen. She has been with me for both the sale of my former home and the purchase of a new construction home ( still in progress). In the sale of my home, Natalie's excellent knowledge and expertise on how to show and sell a home made the process easy and relatively stress free. I made some necessary changes using her help and recommendations of honest, responsible and reasonable technicians. My home looked beautiful and sold in two days. Buying a new construction home has not been an easy process. There have been many problems and challenges along the way but I could always count on Natalie to come to my aide to negotiate and resolve the issue in my favor. As a single homebuyer, I consider myself so fortunate to have such a responsive and dedicated professional at my side. I have had prior experience with several realtors, but Natalie Olsen is far superior in all aspects of this profession. She is the best! Less ... More

I first contacted Natalie in early 2013 before I was actually ready to buy. For the next 18 months, she stuck by me until we found the perfect house. Natalie supported me in the sale of my out of state property, providing sensible and useful suggestions. She worked hand in hand with my mortgage broker here in Colorado to make sure he was kept up to date on our search progress. She continued to present new properties and when we finally found the right property, she helped me negotiate the purchase of my home. Natalie has great contacts in the industry and a strong knowledge of the market. She quickly picked up on my preferences and gave me reality checks when my impulsive tendencies tried to take over. I highly recommend her services! Less ... More

In the beginning of May 2014, my husband and I decided to start the search for our first home after renting for a number of years in Boulder County. As first-time homebuyers, we had NO idea what we were doing and sought out assistance from Natalie Olsen. Natalie quickly became a trusted source for us, provided listings (always in our price range or lower) and helped us clearly define what we wanted in our first home. Natalie is honest, enjoyable to work with, trustworthy and VERY responsive - I don't think I waited longer than 30 minutes for an e-mail back from her! After our second meeting with Natalie, we mentioned a specific townhome complex in Lafayette that we wanted to search - she remembered a listing she saw and showed us the home the next morning. That night we were putting in an offer and it was accepted. We closed and moved into our house on May 30, 2014 and are in love with it. Although I know we definitely got lucky in finding and closing on our home so quickly, I attribute a lot of that timeline success to working with Natalie. I recommend her enthusiastically and without reservation. Less ... More

Natalie has been the best real estate agent to work with! My husband and I are first time home buyers and we had previously worked with another agent who was pushy and not taking care of our needs. We found Natalie and have been so impressed by her. She goes out of her way to make sure we are finding the best home that fits our needs in the Lafayette area. Natalie does not push us in any way, has understood our needs since day 1 of trying to find a home, and guides us respectfully throughout this big decision. She is also very knowledgeable about the area and the real estate market. Additionally, she has taken us to numerous homes within a short notice to make sure we find exactly what we are looking for. I have recommended Natalie to many close friends and they all have been equally has happy working with her and finding their home. Natalie comes highly recommended. Less ... More

Helped me buy home
My husband and I are both very anti-social people and as such had difficulty finding a real estate agent that didn't make us feel uncomfortable or misrepresented. The first time we met Natalie she had us both write down qualities of our ideal home. Then she had us each narrow down our respective lists to five things we would like to have in a home. She called a house that had three or four of those things a "cream puff". Natalie never showed us anything that wasn't a cream puff unless we specifically requested to see it. I really appreciated how much she paid attention to what we were looking for in a home. Natalie never pushed us into anything and respected our quiet personalities (she let us set the amount of communication). She was also super helpful to us, since we were both first-time home buyers. She also never showed us any house that was above the price cap that we had initially set with her, unless we specifically asked her to. This was very important to my husband and I, because we had been previously shown houses only houses that were above our price cap by another real estate agent. Natalie was also super flexible with showing times. I was in the middle of a semester at college and my husband was constantly busy with a big project at work, so we had very little time to go look at houses. Natalie worked with us to make sure we saw the houses we wanted to see and was available pretty much whenever we asked. While I felt bad keeping her out so late and on such short notice, it was awesome of her to be so flexible with us! I would highly recommend Natalie to anyone looking to buy a new home. She was super easy to talk to and really seemed to understand what we were looking for in a home (despite our awkward communication skills!). Less ... More

My husband and I were very pleased with Natalie. She helped us find our first home and did an excellent job from start to finish. She showed us properties in our price range - never above, within the location we wanted, and with criteria that we sought. I was pleased with her communication throughout the process even when we had trouble communicating with other people (ie the lender and insurance agent). She's so easy to contact even when it's 10:30 at night and you're worried about some detail, just shoot her a text and she's quick to respond. When Natalie didn't know an answer to our question, she would find it quickly from others in her agency. She was very helpful in keeping us informed throughout the process and I always felt she was honest and forthcoming about what we could expect. I would recommend working with her to anyone seeking an agent in the area.Edit ADDRESS/REGION: 3353 W 11th Avenue Dr, Broomfield, CO 80020 SERVICE PROVIDED: Helped me buy a home or lot/land (2013) Less ...

I couldn't have asked for a better realtor to guide us through the process of buying our first home. I had heard a lot of horror stories from friends taken advantage by their realtors, but Natalie went above and beyond constantly for us throughout the process and made sure we had all of the information we needed and saw as many homes as we wanted to see. Not only that, but she treated us like human beings, and helped us consider what home would be right for our needs as a family. Even several months after we purchased our home, she is still a go-to for us and has helped us navigate situations we aren't familiar with as first-time buyers. Needless to say, I highly recommend her! Less ... More

We used Hayley Sykes to sell our home and I am confident that we got the best price for our house following Hayley's expert advice. She is professional, knowledgeable, and easy to work with. Her attention to detail throughout the process was an asset and additionally she hired a great stager and photographer to help our house show its best. We moved out of state but if we move back to Colorado we will definitely be using Hayley's services again.

This past spring, with real estate in the Boulder area hoping, I jumped in. I contacted Hayley on the recommendation of a neighbor who had worked with her. This was only the second time I'd purchased property and I needed a person I could trust and whose expertise I could be confident in. Hayley turned out to be both. She was highly responsive, listened to and retained all my ideas about the prospective venture, was very informative about the process and my options, and in every way acted as my advocate. I succeeded in purchasing the property I was looking for and feel, in this competitive market, I could have easily lost it if I hadn't had such a competent realtor. I couldn't have asked for better!

We have bought and sold multiple properties with Hayley in the past 10 years. Hayley is amazing! She is a masterful negotiator, who helped us navigate a red hot, rapidly changing market last spring. She really understands the market and is able to adjust her strategy given our circumstances and the challenges of low inventory. Hayley's communication is excellent, she is well organized and on the ball! What makes Hayley stand out however, is not just her professionalism and expertise, it is her people skills and mission driven approach. Buying and selling can be stressful. Hayley is kind and supportive throughout the process. Hayley is to committed to helping you find a home with a capital "H".

Hayley made my partner and I comfortable that we could trust her in our most major purchase together. At the time we purchased our home that we've been in now for five years, there were several offers on the home. Hayley advised us to write a personal letter to the seller, which we did, which sealed the deal. She led us through the whole process with words of wisdom which have come from years of experience and Hayley's personal intelligence. She has served as a real estate advisor and personal friend ever since. I own a rental property which she advised me on and I am now making money on it which I can turn around and use for upgrades to the property. Thanks Hayley! Less ... More

I have now purchased 3 homes and sold 3, and cannot say enough good things about Hayley. She was not my VERY first realtor, and I really wish she had been. She is always amazing at responding back to any questions or concerns VERY quickly, and did not hesitate to be sure that I ALWAYS understand each detail of the process, and felt comfortable with every part of the selling/buying experience. I have worked with Hayley on buying and selling of property and would not think of looking for another realtor. She always listens to my needs as far as what I am seeking in a purchased property and REALLY has gone to bat when Sellers were being a challenge in the negotiation process. Her expertise and experience in her field and the Denver/Boulder market is apparent in each step of the way. Thank you to Hayley for being such an amazing Realtor. :) Less ... More

My partner and I were referred to Hayley through a mutual friend and former client of hers. In my initial phone contact with Hayley, she responded quickly and suggested a phone call and subsequent meeting to help us determine if now was the right time to buy a new property. Immediately, it was clear to me that Hayley was extremely knowledgable and experienced in working in the hot Denver real estate market. She provided a great deal of information to us about what to expect in the competitive market, gathered a lot of details from us about our "wish list", and provided extensive guidance through the entire process. She was very skilled at managing our anxiety about finding a home in our desired neighborhood quickly; she gently reminded us not to rush into any decisions about such a huge investment and encouraged us to make sure that we were making choices that were right for us. She demonstrated her patience and resolve to help us find the right home when we went under contract on our dream home, only to find out that it had major structural problems that would be very expensive to resolve. Hayley consulted with several experts in home inspection and structural engineering to provide us guidance on what ended up being a very difficult decision to terminate the contract. Ultimately, this proved to be the best decision since we ended up purchasing a wonderful home a few months later that met nearly all the items on our wish list. She has followed up with us several times since the sale to make sure that we are happy with the purchase and to answer any questions. Hayley is an agent you can trust to help you through every step of the buying process even when unexpected challenges arise. She never pressured us to make a decision, was extremely responsive (even on evenings and weekends, which was crucial to us), and provided excellent customer service. I highly recommend Hayley to any client from a "property virgin" to experienced homeowners. Less ... More

I've used Hayley for both my first and second home purchases. The second home search was not as easy as the first. After taking into consideration my needs and my wants and price range there weren't that many houses that I really fell in love with. I never felt pressured to purchase a home I wasn't sure about. After a few weeks of Hayley being my constant eyes and ears for new properties coming on the market she finally found one that had only been on the market for a few minutes and called me and said "I think you'll really like this one, I think this may be it". Once I saw I knew she was right and I wrote on the property immediately. I never felt pressured to do anything I was unsure of at any point during the transaction. When issues arose on inspection she gave me her honest opinion and recommendations. I would without hesitation recommend Hayley to my friends and family and know that they were in good hands.
