We were recommended to Linda by a friend and we couldn’t have been more fortunate in finding her to help purchase our first home! Linda was excellent to work with and talked us through every step of the way. She offered us assurance and her expertise left us in no doubt that we were receiving the very best advice. Linda worked very hard for us and we would be delighted to be able to work with her again in future. We couldn’t be happier and couldn’t offer her a higher recommendation! She allowed us to enjoy the process and for that we are truly grateful.
My husband and I relocated from Texas and were referred to Linda as a top real estate agent in Colorado Springs. We first had a phone interview and after that there was no doubt she was the one that could assist us in finding exactly what we were looking for!!. Linda listened to what we wanted and more importantly, what we didn’t want. The day we arrived at her office to view the properties she selected, everything was professionally presented and ready to go. Linda spent a great deal of time showing us all the listings pointing out all the good things and the bad. Linda is very familiar with all the critical things involved in making a decision to purchase your home such as location, school district, taxes, price, and resale potential. Once we made our decision Linda was still there working harder than ever to get inspections and repairs done, We would highly recommend Linda Lafferty and could not imagine working with anybody else!!
Linda Lafferty of the Platinum Group listed our home. The listing photos for our home were beautiful. She so friendly and so professional. Our home had an offer in 4 days after listing it and everything went so smoothly. She really knows what she is doing and goes over and beyond. She is top notch and A+++ .
~John Westrom & Debbie Jenise
My husband and I were first time homebuyers and really had no clue what we were doing. We are so thankful that we found Linda because she really knows her stuff and made our first home buying experience a pleasant and easy one. Linda was right by our side the entire home buying process. On the day we closed, she reviewed all of the paperwork before hand and even saved the seller some money! You can be confident that when you work with Linda, you are truly getting a realtor who is going to look out for your best interest. There were several major issues discovered when we did the walkthrough of our home and I was so disappointed, but Linda knew exactly what to do. She negotiated for the repairs, made sure that were done properly, and moved us right along in the process. I never felt like I had to follow up with her because she is fantastic about communicating, and has the most amazing time management skills of anyone I’ve met. She listened to what we wanted and helped guide us to a home that works perfectly for us. We couldn’t be happier. Thank you Linda!
Look no further! Linda is a consummate professional who always puts her client’s interests first. From day one Linda showed an understanding that no single real estate transaction is identical and no matter the home’s value selling or buying is one of the most important transactions a family can experience.
Our situation, of course, was different. We had come to the decision we wanted to change neighborhoods, but knew because of the current market we would need to sell our home before purchasing in our target area. Linda helped us prepare, market, and sell our home. All of which happened very quickly. Linda walked us through the tasks of prepping the home for extremely well done photos and how to manage keeping the home presentable for showings while still living in it with a 3 year old child. Her office managed all showing appointments and always kept our busy schedule and preferences in mind. Our home was located in an area known to be tricky for appraisals. Linda hit it right on! The home sold fast, so fast in fact, we chose to rent instead of force a purchase in our target area. Renting was something Linda supported and never once attempted to pressure us to buy. In fact, she went above and beyond to help us find and negotiate a very comfortable rental. We have three pets, so this wasn’t an easy task! We can’t imagine the number of calls Linda was making behind the scenes to help us! As we settle in to our rental, Linda is helping us transition to the next phase: buying.
Linda has been very diligent in listening to our needs in a “forever” home. She has set up a very detailed and custom search. The suggested houses have been well thought out. Additionally, Linda is helping us explore the option of building.
Linda is truly someone to be trusted. We have a good friend and trusted advisor in Linda! Please read more testimonials, or save some time and gain peace of mind by hiring Linda.

Linda Lafferty of the Platinum Group is the BEST and made my home buying experience in Colorado Springs wonderful even in a highly competitive market. Her knowledge and expertise saved me from making potential mistakes and her amazing patience guided me to find the perfect home in a wonderful neighborhood. She took the time to get to know us and understand what we were looking for, so when she found a house that had just come on the market, she knew it was perfect for us. She even went out of her way to help me with the listing on my house in another state, which facilitated its sale! Her dedication and follow through are unparalleled, even after you close on your house she is there for you! You couldn’t be in better hands and I highly recommend Linda for all your real estate needs! She will be the first call I make should I have to move again! Thank you Linda!
~Shonna and Hunter
We moved to COS in the middle of an insanely difficult housing market for buyers. Linda Lafferty of the Platinum Group was our realtor. We couldn’t
have been more satisfied with the process. While the process of home buying was much more difficult than we had imagined, based on the levels of
competitiveness, Linda gave us excellent guidance. Her knowledge, patience, and guidance landed us into a beautiful home that we love in a wonderful neighborhood. She is very detail oriented, with great communication skills, making the process go smoothly.
Linda will definitely be our realtor if needed in the future. I highly recommend her to any prospective buyers and sellers.
~Brent and Lisa Harris
Thank you for all your hard work. guidance and expertise. We are very grateful to have you by our side once again during the process! Working with you provided calmness during a stressful time, as we always knew you had our best interest at heart and are incredibly dedicated to your work!
We really appreciate everything you did for us!
~Monica, Jeremy and Lacey
Linda Lafferty delivered as promised and have made selling our home easy! Linda is by far the best Realtor we have dealt with and made sure everything went well and was taken care of in a timely manner. The process was a breeze with Linda and we were always informed. We would love to work with you again. We can’t thank you enough!
~Malcom and Kathleen
We came to know Linda as a result of a corporate relocation that moved us to Colorado Springs in 2014. Even then we were aware that our time there would be limited to 3-4 years after which the company would likely move us again. After interviewing several Agents there was no doubt that we wanted to work with Linda in our search for a home. Knowing that our time in Colorado Springs was likely to last only a few years a primary request we had for her was to find us a house that she would be able to quickly sell a few years down the road. The depth of her knowledge regarding the Colorado Springs area is unparalleled and ultimately resulted in our finding a house. As we were new to the area we also had many questions regarding the city. She was able to answer all of our questions and guide us in the best direction regardless of what we were looking for at the time.
As expected my company asked us to relocate earlier this year. We immediately contacted Linda and asked her to represent us during the sale of our house. In preparing the house for sale there were a couple of items we wanted to have repaired. Linda was there to give us potential options of people to take care of the items. In less than a month and a half she had sold the house for significantly more that our purchase price. We readily give the credit for that to Linda.
That house was the fourth that we have bought and sold over the last 20 years I we can say without any reservation that Linda was far and away the best Agent we have ever had. We would not hesitate to recommend Linda to anyone moving into or leaving the area. We could talk all day about her professionalism and knowledge but it has been her friendship, honesty, and caring attitude that will ensure that we never forget her.
There’s only one realtor in our book — Linda is THE BEST!
I first met Linda in 2005 when I was in the process of relocating to Colorado Springs. She was referred to me by a fellow co-worker. The first time I met her, I was very impressed by her knowledge of the Colorado Springs housing market, her professionalism in setting realistic expectations with me, and her ability to explain the complex world of real estate to me in terms I could easily understand (contracts, mortgage process, inspections, timelines, etc.). On my two trips to Colorado Springs, she introduced me to the area, showed me around town, and worked hard to find me townhouses that met my requirements. She was committed to my tight timelines and, by golly, she found the townhouse of my dreams!! It was perfect! Linda totally took care of organizing everything and made the home buying process super easy for me from 1400 miles away. Then, from the time I closed until I actually moved out to Colorado Springs and my beautiful new townhouse, she went above and beyond her duties as my realtor; she visited the townhouse weekly to check on it and sent me reports that everything was OK, she recommended cleaning services and let folks into the house to perform those services so it was in tip-top shape and ready for me to move in when I arrived.
Several years later, Linda helped with the sale of my perfect townhouse and the purchase of my first home with my new husband. 🙂 She worked with us to set realistic expectations for the sale of the townhouse and for the new house we were purchasing together. It was reassuring to have Linda helping us every step of the way. She led us through the process of setting the selling price, staging the home, and creating the marketing materials. My townhouse sold very quickly. Linda also showed us houses on the market that met our new requirements. She did it again! She found us the perfect house! After five years, we decided to remodel the kitchen and living room and add a great room. Linda referred the contractor and came to the house to help make suggestions. We loved living in that the house for over a decade.
We recently fell in love with a model home that wasn’t on the market. We again called the best realtor in Colorado Springs, Linda Lafferty, to see if there was any way we could make this house our home. She worked with us and negotiated with the builder’s agent to make our dream come true. Once again, Linda helped set the price, stage, and sell our existing house (note: we sold above asking price and were under contract in less than 24 hours from the time we put the house on the market). We just moved into our gorgeous forever home, and we couldn’t be happier.
Linda has been our professional realtor for over a decade and has helped us with buying and selling multiple homes. She is simply phenomenal to work with. She has excellent organizational skills, fantastic people skills, and she goes the extra mile to ensure her clients are informed and well taken care of. There’s only one realtor in our book — Linda really is THE BEST!!
~Regards, Jill and Rick Manley
Linda’s patience, integrity, experience, and knowledge in the Real Estate market is unsurpassed. My family has personally worked with Linda on the sell and purchase of several of our homes, and we wouldn’t dream of using anyone else. Her integrity is unmatched, and to me, this is the number one quality I look for when looking for a realtor to guide me in this ever-changing market. Buying or selling a home can be an emotional process, and Linda’s understanding of the entire process, makes the experience smooth and less overwhelming. She will always be my real estate expert, guide, and go-to person.
Linda was the best realtor we could have had for the purchase of a home here in Colorado Springs. From a business sense she proved her depth of experience and knowledge as we combed the market for what we needed now and as a future investment. Additionally, from a personal aspect she was a joy to work with as she was extremely responsive to after hour phone calls, emails and texts. There’s no doubt that in the future we will refer all our friends and family to Linda. Thank you Linda for making our buying experience SO easy and positive!
-Hudson and Chelsea Graham
We can’t thank Linda enough for her guidance and support during our relocation to the Springs from Virginia. Throughout the whole process, Linda provided us with detailed information, recommendations, and critical insider-knowledge of the area. With a newborn in the house, only my husband was able to make the trip out to Colorado to search for our new home. Linda spent the day with him (and me, via Facetime) taking us to various homes, asking questions (that we wouldn’t have known to ask!), and providing helpful hints and information to ensure we were fully informed before making our decision. We would certainly recommend Linda to anyone looking for a realtor, as her kindness, knowledge, and positive attitude made our home buying experience smooth and easy!
We can’t thank Linda enough for her superior attention to detail and customer service. She was with us every step of the way, making sure all transactions went smoothly. She took great care to ensure we were informed and supported throughout our relocation, including orientation to the community. After moving five times in the past, we can say with confidence Linda’s professionalism and experience are second to none. She was far more than a realtor to us.
~The Ladd Family
Hi Linda, Rick and I were talking the other day and we both agreed that we think that the only reason we got that house is because we had you as an agent! So I am not sure if I said this before so I want to make sure you know that we are very very appreciative of all you did for us! I think you showing up early like you did made all the difference and I think your reputation and just your overall wonderfulness made the whole thing so successful! So thank you very very very much! We are so happy about it!
We would absolutely recommend Linda Lafferty to anyone looking to buy or sell a home. This is the fourth time we have worked with her. Linda was an absolute pleasure to work with and made to process of selling our old home and buying our new home painless. Her knowledge of the industry and attention to detail made for a smooth process. We highly recommend Linda to anyone looking for an exemplary realtor who will take all the work out of buying and selling a home and turn it into an exciting experience.
-Nick and Jennifer
When I made to decision to relocate to the Springs one of my biggest concerns was finding a new home. I was introduced to Linda via a mutual acquaintance.
I met with Linda and was immediately impressed with her. She has been outstanding! She not only helped me to find a new home, she provided valuable information about the local community.
Linda has been amazing throughout the entire process. I appreciated her promptness responding to my numerous questions.
If you need a compassionate top notch realtor, Linda is the ONE!
Linda Lafferty is the best! Her knowledge and professionalism take most of the stress out of buying a home. She has extensive experience in the Colorado Spring housing market and is very sensitive to your needs. Linda is a total professional and shows extreme attention to detail. She’s very patient and a pleasure to work with. She’s been my realtor for several sales and purchases and that will not change. You will not be disappointed.
“The best realtor in town! Linda did an outstanding job handling the sale of our house. Doing her research, finding a great listing price, preparing the home to go on the market, and finalizing the closing, Linda always knew the answer. Linda truly went above and beyond what I would have ever expected of a realtor. My husband had already left state, leaving me alone to get the house on the market, not knowing what I would do. Linda guided me through the whole process. The house went on the market on a Monday morning, and with her preparations, we already had two offers by earlyWednesday morning! By the following Tuesday, I had moved out, joining my husband across the country. With us living out of state, Linda handled a lot of extra work. She dealt with the home inspection and arranged for contractors to fix the home. She even picked up our packages and sent them to us! I recommend her highly to anyone selling a home. Good job and thanks Linda! I don’t think anyone could have done it better!” ~Wendy Norman~
Approximately 15 years ago, Linda helped my mom and I find our first home in Colorado Springs. It was a special time for us because my mom had just gotten divorced and it was our first time on our own, but Linda made the process as easy as possible for us. Linda took care of items that we would never know to track and made sure that we were covered in every aspect of the purchase.
We have since sold and purchased homes through Linda and have been blown away by her consistent excellence each time. Fast forward to the present, my husband and I fell in love with a new model home and stumbled upon a very desirable plot at a new development. The situation was so perfect that we signed a contingency on the new lot for selling our old home in a short period of time. We immediately contacted Linda with the challenge of selling our house in a market where most homes in our street were for sale and within enough time to keep a very desirable lot with the new builder. We were allowed three months in our contingency but Linda sold our house in only one week. Linda’s assessment of the current market caused her to price our house so perfectly that profit exceeded our expectation and the buyer agreed to our sales price without negotiation. Linda assisted us with staging the home for the sale and taking care of any issues that could come up during inspection. Linda’s guidance through the process made the sale of our home hassle free.
The build process for the new home was different than anything we had experienced in the past and having her on our corner made my husband and I feel comfortable and secure. Linda guided us through the right questions to ask, the most relevant upgrades for the home, tracking paperwork, inspections, deadlines, and every little detail that we would never know to address. We were warned by friends who had built new homes of issues that were common with new builds, but due to Linda’s diligence and guidance we have recently moved into our beautiful dream home without facing any of those issues.
Linda’s service goes so far above expectations that she has scheduled time to walk through the home with us during our 1 year inspection to make sure that we catch any issues we might overlook due to familiarity. We have referred Linda to friends who have told us that they are “keeping her for themselves” because they were so impressed with the level of service that she provides. Linda is always available and present; she is so knowledgeable and attends to the process with so much diligence and going so far above expectations that it really sets her apart. Linda has both our loyalty as customers as well as our friendship. We feel truly blessed to have Linda in our lives; not only is she an amazing realtor but an amazing person. ~Brandon and Wynne Christen
Linda has been an awesome Realtor to work with, your upbeat personality, your smile, has been a ray of sunshine in an otherwise stressful time.
Now—- It’s hard to believe my home has sold, and I am now looking forward to the next chapter of my life.
Your very resourceful, I can ask you anything and you will provide the much needed answer, if you don’t know you will check and let me know.
You have connected me to the “right people” painter’s, plumber, client’s in need of things I can’t use, locksmith, and Two Men And A Truck.
Always on time for appointments, going to Home Depot for me to get a mat to put under my washer as recommended by Inspector, you go “The Extra Mile That Is Seldom Crowded”.
I feel like I have always been treated as if I were your only Client, and now friend.
I thank you for all that you have done this experience has truly been a lovely one.
Linda Lafferty takes the terms professionalism, courtesy, and client satisfaction and redefines them. She doesn’t just go the extra mile, she goes to whatever length necessary to make sure you are fully informed and that everything is completed timely and in as smooth a fashion as possible. As first time home buyers we had numerous questions and Linda took the time to fully explain everything to us and also made sure to bring up and explain things we needed to know that we were not even aware of. From our very first meeting I knew Linda had not only the expertise but also the friendly demeanor we needed in a realtor and she still blew every expectation we had out of the water.
Of course the house we fell in love with had many surprises in store for us during the closing process. However Linda was right there beside us and fought every inch of the way to make sure our investment was protected and that everything that needed to be addressed was taken care of. Without Linda I believe we would have lost our dream home but thanks to her efforts that was not the case. It was both a comfort and a blessing to have Linda as our realtor. She truly does care about her clients, and their needs, and that makes all the difference.
If you are looking for a realtor, you found her. With Linda as your realtor you can rest easy in the knowledge that you made the right choice and that you could not be in better hands.
As a young couple with a baby on the way, we were expecting realtors to speak down to us and treat us like children. Working with Linda Lafferty was undoubtedly the opposite, and a genuine pleasure. Linda is a professional in every sense of the word. She fought tenaciously for what was best for us. Though we were first-time home-buyers, she was happy to answer our many, basic questions, and she was always available for contact. Even when we were pressed for time, Linda was able to lead us skillfully and quickly through the process, even through the sometimes unavoidable bumps that can arise. We were never in doubt that Linda had our best interests at heart, and we would happily recommend her to family and friends alike.
Taylor and Leah Lopez
My experience of working with Linda Lafferty has been excellent! I have worked with Linda on four transactions and her expert advice has been invaluable. Linda goes above and beyond just being a Realtor. She really cares about her clients and was always there when I had a question. The amount of time and effort she put into having beautiful professional photos and marketing of my homes was amazing. I highly recommend to anyone whom is looking for a top notch professional to call Linda. She’ll be right there to help you. Thank you Linda for all your help! Lorraine
We are beyond satisfied with Linda’s services helping us acquire our forever home. Linda is phenomenal at everything she does! Linda provides first-rate, professional, knowledgeable, and honest real estate services. We were referred to Linda by a couple of our friends (independent of each other) and were told she is the best. We have not been disappointed at all. We are brand new to Colorado Springs and she helped us in all sorts of ways with her knowledge of the area. It is so important to have an honest and super personable realtor on your team when house hunting (or selling). Linda is very accommodating to your needs, works nonstop, and will protect your interests with her vast professional knowledge. It is clear that Linda has a high level of business integrity and will make sure that her clients are fully satisfied. We have zero complaints and only high praises! We definitely highly recommend Linda!

“Linda was a true champion for me during the negotiation process. My purchase wasn’t any easy one. During the whole process, Linda provided great expertise on the home inspection and mortgage lender and made sure I was moving through the steps properly. As a first time home buyer, I felt very well informed. During the entire time Linda kept my best interest in mind and worked for me to ensure that I got the best deal possible, even if that meant having to walk away. I’m glad in the end we didn’t have to! I love my new home!” Delia
Thank you so much sharing your expertise and helping us sell our house and
buy our townhome. Frank and I highly benefited in both transactions. Our
house sold for more than I thought it ever would and in a very short period
of time without any hang ups. Your innovative thinking solved the problem
of the assessment loss issue that came about during the purchase of our
townhome. During the whole selling and buying process, you were always very
professional, respectful of all parties, organized, thorough and efficient;
making the transition as painless as possible for Frank and me.
I really appreciate the fact that you are staying on top of the townhouse
loss assessment transaction and tracking its progress and hopefully,
conclusion. It’s comforting to know that Frank and I still have your
support and availability if needed.
Thank you, Linda, for making the selling of our house and the purchase of
our townhome so successful. And thank you for your continued support and
We would definitely recommend Linda Lafferty of the Platinum Group!
We met Linda in 2004, she was assigned to us through my employers relocation department to assist us in finding a home here in Colorado Springs. From the moment we met she made us feel welcome and important to her! She worked diligently to help us find the perfect home, and after 2 short months Linda found us a beautiful home in the Briargate area. She worked hard to make sure all our questions were answered quickly and accurately and that no stone was left unturned, she knew that relocating across the country was stressful and did whatever she could to keep the process smooth. We were so happy she was our realtor! Now here it is 12 years later and we are now relocating back to our home state, who else would we call, but the best realtor in CO! Linda worked with us to set the price of our home and to get it ready to put on the market. Once we did, the house sold in 9 days! We were thrilled, and scared as everything is happening at a very fast pace, but Linda knows how to take the worry out of any situation and handles anything we throw her way!!! Thank you for everything you’ve done!!! We will definitely miss you!
–Kevin and Julie
My husband and I could not have chosen an agent that better met our needs than Linda Lafferty with The Platinum Group Realtors. We were so impressed with Linda’s professionalism, hard work, flexibility, patience, knowledge of the real estate market and overall enthusiasm. She provided great guidance/advice in finding the right home for our family. She always pointed out things with each home – both good and bad. Linda was so friendly, attentive to our needs and made us feel at ease with the whole home buying process – never pushy and always with our best interests in mind. Communication is key when buying a house and Linda was always there for us. She was very thorough and always available to answer our questions quickly! When Linda was taking a short, well-deserved vacation, she made sure that we knew that she would be available via email “as if she were in the office” and not to hesitate to contact her with any questions or concerns. Sometimes we felt as if we were her only client! We highly recommend Linda to anyone who is buying or selling their home in the Colorado Springs area. Thanks for everything Linda!
Linda is by far the most professional, thorough and efficient Realtor I have ever worked with. I can’t see having a more positive rewarding working relationship with anyone in Real Estate. You can count on her to listen, prepare and guide you into the right home for your needs and desires. I had very limited time in the local area, high standards and strict requirements. Linda made the most of our time together and from our first meeting I knew I could trust her. Even after closing, she continued to take care of me and follow up on the details. Her network of professionals in the business are impeccable and her knowledge of the Colorado Springs market is second to none! She got me into the perfect home that I know will be enjoyable for many years.
Geez where to start? This is the fourth property Linda has helped our family buy and sell in Colorado Springs over the last 16 years. This sale of our house has been a journey. I was transferred from Colorado Springs to Fenton, Michigan on short notice. Linda was able to sell our house in five days, we had a signed contract and we signed a contract to purchase a new house in Michigan. The day we signed the contract in Michigan the buyer of the house in Colorado backed out. Needless to say I was very upset, but Linda kept calm and composed, focusing our energy on getting the house back on the market. The house sold again on the 31st of March. Yes, that is correct Linda sold our house two times in less than 30 days. She coordinated numerous contractors, installers and deliveries while continuing to show the house. This is while my family and I were residing in Michigan. While I don’t believe that most people will need this much help in selling a property she has been a rock solid partner in this transaction. She has even helped us with questions concerning the purchase of our Michigan property.
I have no idea how we would have completed this task without Linda’s help. All of the certifications Linda has on her business card are impressive and well earned, but I would add a few more:
-Expert, Patient, Knowledgeable, Kind, Professional, Strategic Partner and Hard Working.
Her tag line is The Extra Mile is Seldom Crowed which describes her dedication and commitment to her clients. She is simply the BEST real estate agent in Colorado Springs.
Thank you Linda, we love you.
We wanted to take a moment to thank Linda Lafferty of the Platinum Group for the incredible amount of time, energy and effort she put into helping us buy a home in the Colorado Springs area. She always made herself available when we needed her, despite our erratic schedule. She was willing to roam far and wide with us over several months looking for homes She always treated us as if we were her most important clients, though we certainly weren’t. And when we finally found the “perfect place” she put in extra effort over and over again–effort that cost her much extra work and time–to ensure that our interests were always covered…even in several cases when we didn’t think it mattered. On several occasions it turned out later that it mattered very much, which we couldn’t and wouldn’t have known, and her extra effort had protected us from making costly mistakes. She is extremely experienced, fun to work with, extraordinarily knowledgeable about the area, and professional to the highest degree. She also has an incredible resources of people to turn to for anything that might be needed when the house is actually purchased. Thanks Linda! We couldn’t have hoped for a better realtor! Or a better person!
Mike and Marlyce.
Linda’s extensive knowledge of the housing market is unparalleled. From her advice on the right listing price, to her honest approach on accepting an offer, she is a real pleasure to work with. A hardworking straight shooter, whom I would recommend to anyone buying or selling their home. Thanks Linda! Adam
Linda is a very diligent and thoughtful professional who is committed to make sure that you get the right house for you. She worked with us for 6 months to find the right house and neighborhood. Her extensive experience in the area and advise taught us how to look at a house for issues that we would have never thought to look for. These included how to look at the house’s foundation, the type of water lines, windows, and more. She always showed up with pertinent information on the property. When we showed interest in the house, she would pull a soils report to look at the probability of further settling or flooding issues. She was always forthcoming with guidance on the different neighborhoods that best fit our parameters and which areas had the best resale potential. Overall, I highly recommend her to anyone who needs a great Realtor and I will use her again if we need to buy or sell another house. Brian and Cindy
I greatly appreciated how easy you made everything, from staging to photos to electronic contracts. I have no doubt that the work you put in not only sold the home fast but also for above asking. Communications were always timely and direct. I felt involved in the process and knew what was coming next. I would definitely recommend you to anyone in the area looking for a great agent! Matt
My wife, Sonja and I took on the task of helping a family member move to California to join other family members. Part of our task beyond the packing and moving process was to arrange for the sale of her home in Colorado Springs. After contacting friends here that own London Properties, a large residential realty company in Fresno, California we were referred to Linda Lafferty with Platinum Group Realtors.
>Linda has proven to be much more helpful than we could have imagined. The challenges that we faced with selling a home from long distance proved to be not nearly as difficult as we had anticipated thanks to Linda. With Linda’s guidance and helpful suggestions we were able to work through what very well could have been a stressful sale process. We faced several unanticipated hurdles while preparing to get the home to the market. Some Realtors may have found it much easier to abandon the process and move on to an “easier sale” but Linda offered her help working through those challenges and on to a successful sale of the home. Linda was very thorough and patient in explaining the process of selling the home and helping us through the preparation of the home for sale, pricing the home and working with the multiple offers that we received for the home. Linda has also remained in close communication throughout the listing and sale period. I have received numerous helpful updates from Linda on the status of the sale process as well as friendly reminders of things that I need to provide to prevent any delays. Both of my parents were Realtors as was my wife so we have experienced the trials and challenges of real estate transactions from both sides. Our experience with Linda left no doubt that we would gladly refer anyone to her if they need a Realtor in the Colorado Springs area. Sincerely, Carson and Sonja
“Robert and I think the world of Linda. She is an awesome, caring realtor who wants the best for her clients. She has great knowledge and is so personable it was nice working with her. She assisted us with our many needs and wants with great respect to us. We would highly recommend her to anyone! She is a professional!!!” ~ Susan Pettis
We would highly recommend Linda to be your Realtor. She listens to your needs and delivers 100% EVERY time. She is a tireless worker who only has her clients happiness to find their ultimate home at her center core. She is very professional, punctual, very accommodating and will strive to do the VERY best for you! We were very happy with the communication and no problem, or idea was too small or insignificant! She really deserves the title of Realtor of Every Year and is a pleasant, funny joy to work with. Her sense of humor and fun and her dedication, passion and commitment to you shines through in every way. Linda is A definite keeper on speed dial! We look forward to perhaps working with her in the future, but not for a long time I hope!! ;-))) Long may her reign as Queen of Real Estate continue, she surely deserves the title. ~ Kind Regards, Ros Dubourdieu “
Linda has been outstanding and professional realtor from the first time we met with her. We ended up finding our home quickly and Linda was invaluable throughout the entire process. She brought things to our attention that we otherwise may have missed, and made sure the entire process went as smooth as possible. We had many questions throughout the process and her email responses were always timely. We would highly recommend her to anybody interested in a knowledgeable, friendly and responsive realtor. ~ Mike & Janna Haas
I wanted to express our appreciation for your recent services regarding selling our home. You were recommended to us for your ingenuity and smart marketing tactics. My husband and I were both impressed with your marketing tactics from the beginning. I also appreciate your responsiveness to all communications and availability either by phone, email or text. you promptly responded to any and all inquiries from us. Of course, I’m most satisfied that we received a fair offer within 6 weeks, with 4-6 weekly showings. Your office was very efficient with scheduling, and we never had a conflict for lack of communication. We closed on our home recently, without incident. Thank you for guiding us through all the necessary steps, and for selling our home in a neighborhood where home sales have been slow for years! We will definitely recommend you when we have the opportunity. ~ Pat & Rob
Yes Virginia – there really is a difference when it comes to real estate agents! We discovered Linda Lafferty from friend’s recommendation and experienced a whole new level of service. After many real estate transactions over the years – my wife and I felt a general mistrust of real estate agents and what they could do for us. However, Linda challenged this notion. She was energized, proactive, explored new options and aggressively sought potential customers for our home. Visits increased 600% with her help and we were very pleased with the results! Highly recommended! ~ Rob and Heide
We would highly recommend Linda Lafferty to anyone who needs a realtor. She was always professional and communicated every detail. She was straight forward and honest about what we could sell our house for and excited for us when looking for a new home. This was a very positive experience for such a stressful time. Linda is not just a realtor she is a friend. ~ Mike and Sarah Campos
When I decided to move to Colorado Springs from Cape Cod, my daughter Melissa referred me to Linda Lafferty to represent me as a buyer’s agent. Even though my condominium purchase was relatively small, Linda treated me as if I was purchasing a million dollar property. Her professionalism and attention to detail on the real estate contract were phenomenal. I would not hesitate to refer her, or to hire her again to represent me on either side of a real estate transaction. ~ Darlene
Linda Lafferty was referred to me in 2007 when I decided to sell my home in Black Forest. She has been my agent on five real estate transactions since. Her prudent, candid advice and recommendations regarding market value, inspections, and repairs have saved me tens of thousands of dollars over the years. I would humbly smile and nod if she ever said, “I told you so,” about any of those recommendations! There are few individuals with the level of commitment it requires to deliver the impeccable service and care she has given me. She is thorough, timely, and accountable. I have never held more trust or regard in a professional than I do for Linda Lafferty! ~ Layne
Linda did a wonderful job in guiding me through the process and working to find me the house that met my needs. She was flexible in meeting with me when one of us found a house to look at and then guided me through the entire buying process.
Even when I couldn’t meet with her in person to sign paperwork to put in the offer, we were able to handle it all electronically (even though I was in a hotel out of town!)
Thank you Linda, for all the assistance, patience and guidance in helping me find a great home! I will definitely look you up if/when I move again and will be happy to refer my friends and family to you.
Thanks for everything, Linda. ~ Kelly, Toby, Ellie & Timo
Linda was recommended to us by a couple of my co-workers and they had nothing but good things to say. I had never lived in Colorado so was looking for an agent with a good knowledge of the area. I’m glad I chose Linda. She was very honest with me about locations and home values. We really appreciated her experience and honesty and believe that is the reason we ended up getting the house that was perfect for our family. We truly enjoyed working with Linda and would definitely recommend her to others! ~ Steven and Holly McCullough
Our family was relocated to Colorado Springs two years ago. For no profit of her own, Linda Lafferty helped us search and secure a rental home during the Waldo Canyon fire without us having to even visit the city in person. When it came time to purchase a home, there was only one choice for our realtor needs. Linda knows the unique qualities of every neighborhood, and does a phenomenal job helping you search for a home that meets your needs with your budget and investment protection in mind. Linda made the negotiation and buying process as seamless as possible, and when it comes to negotiation you definitely want her on your side. Lastly, Linda goes above and beyond our expectations and experiences with other realtors. She verifies every detail, such as permits and inspections on previous improvements done to your potential new home and even helped us find moving boxes and a new lawnmower. I could not recommend Linda more highly. ~ The Dunn Family
During our relocation from Pennsylvania, we have been working with Linda to purchase a home in Colorado Springs. Throughout this process Linda has provided an amazing array of services tailored to our specific needs, including advice on a broad range of relocation topics, remote home walkthroughs, and suggestions for temporary housing. Even though we were 1600 miles away for much of this process, we have felt involved and connected the entire time. All of this has been in addition to expert advice and management concerning the offer, contract, inspection, appraisal and closing processes associated with purchasing a home. Linda is extremely well organized in all aspects, including appointments, documentation and anticipating upcoming steps in the purchasing process, and perhaps most importantly, has always been available via phone, e-mail or text to promptly answer our questions or direct us to appropriate resources. It has been a relief to have a realtor we can trust with every step of this process, and it has literally been a joy to work with her. I would absolutely recommend her to anyone looking to relocate and purchase a home in Colorado Springs. ~ Mark and Ann
Several years ago Linda helped me relocate to Colorado Springs and found the perfect home for me. When I decided to buy an investment property I contacted Linda. I knew that even though it was a small deal and very little commission she would work as if it were a million dollar house that I was buying! Thank you for all your hard work and diligence. ~Cheryl
As a first time homebuyer, I was very reluctant to begin the process of purchasing a home, mostly due to the real estate “horror” stories I heard over the years. Linda Lafferty completely erased that fear and hesitation from the moment we met. Her confidence and competence allowed me to actually enjoy the home buying process. My husband and I had complete faith in Linda throughout our time working together, and greatly appreciated her constant communication and consistency. We are expecting our first child and could not have found the home that we will start our family in without Linda’s professionalism, dedication, and enthusiasm. We definitely recommend Linda as a real estate agent for anyone looking not only for a home, but a genuinely refreshing and positive home buying experience. ~ Casey & Sara
Working with Linda was a great experience, she’s friendly, professional, and has a great attitude. Linda is the most knowledgeable real estate professional I’ve ever met. Her unique combination of expertise and genuine caring made both selling and buying a new home an absolute pleasure. I recommend her (and do) without hesitation to anyone in need of a realtor. ~ Jennifer Achey
We have felt so blessed to have Linda as our realtor during this recent process of moving to another state. We had to sell our home quickly and move within a month and a half and Linda had absolutely no problem with that timeline. This home had been our first home so we were very cautious–she took the time to answer every last question and kept us up to speed on every aspect of the process. This could have been such a stressful time for us but Linda continually reassured us and thankfully (and amazingly!) got our home sold in 17 days. We were able to move with the peace of mind knowing Linda would be watching over our home before our closing. We never doubted her for one minute (and that means a lot coming from a type A personality) and although we now live in another state, we will always refer her to friends and family in Colorado Springs! Linda, through her amazing realtor abilities, made this whole process so simple and we are truly thankful! She is exceptional and absolutely one of the top realtors in the Springs. And above all, she is so kind and thoughtful as well! Cream of the Crop! ~ Sincerely, The Thompson Family
My husband and I used Linda to help us buy our first home and we are forever grateful that we chose to use her as our Realtor. Linda was patient with us and listened to our wants and needs. Linda made the overwhelming process of buying our first home seem easy and worry free. Linda is well connected to other Realtors and well known in the community, which helped us to find our perfect home the first day that it was placed on the market. We would highly recommended Linda to anyone buying or selling a home!Thanks again Linda for all the work you did with us, we really appreciate it!~ Ashley and Greg
Linda, thank you so much for all of the hard work that you put in to finding us our beautiful home. You were the picture of patience, understanding, and genuine care throughout this whole process. I know that I gave you a challenge due to the fact that we were moving in from out of state and only had 5 days to spend in person with you. The professionalism and knowledge that you showed helped make this process smooth and even fun. Knowing how picky and detail oriented I am can sometimes make it difficult to help me get exactly what I am looking for. You were able to find us our perfect home, help us overcome all obstacles, make us feel welcome in a new state, and did it all with a smile and cheerful can do attitude. You are amazing and we are so thankful to have had the opportunity to know you and work with you. You rock Linda!! ~ Jenny
Having Linda by our side enabled us to find the house we wanted. She was extremely knowledgeable about the homes, neighborhoods, and pricing. She was professional, friendly, and enjoyable to be with. Not only did she scour the listings to find us our new home, she also took the time to familiarize us with the surrounding areas. With Linda’s business savvy, attention to detail, and proclivity to work hard for you, you’ll be confident that you obtained the right house for the right price. ~ Blaine and Katelyn
Being first time home buyers, we were a little intimidated searching for our home. Luckily we found comfort in working with Linda and she guided us and made us knowledgeable of the things we should be looking at in a home.
Thanks Linda for your professionalism, knowledge of the market, and most of all for your guidance in a very big time in our family’s life. You’re the BEST of the BEST! ~ Jeremy and Monica
This is our ninth house we’ve bought since we have been married, 50 years, and this has been by far the best experience we’ve had in buying or selling a house and it’s because of your genuine interest in treating us fairly and your professionalism. You were in touch with us explaining each step in the process, from signing the sales contract through the closing. We’ve never had a broker do this so thoroughly. ~ Rick and Joy
Unlike some realtors who we have worked with in the past, we never felt pressured to make a decision, and always felt Linda had our best interests in mind. Linda exuded professionalism as well as friendliness and courtesy in every aspect of our move. We greatly appreciated her tireless work ethic as well as her thorough knowledge of the real estate market in and around Colorado Springs In short I would highly recommend Linda. ~ Jeff and Lisa
Our past experiences with other real estate agents were good but none of them ever made us feel that we were as well taken care of or cared for, the way we were with Linda. I would definitely recommend her services especially if you want more than just someone that will show you some homes and collect a commission when it’s all over. My family and I feel privileged to work with someone of Linda Lafferty’s caliber and integrity. ~ Amy and Jay
Buying a house can be a really difficult and daunting task, or it can be an enjoyable and painless experience. Working with Linda is the latter, because she is highly respected by her peers and the community for her hard work, thoroughness and integrity. ~ Anthony
Linda really went the extra mile to help us find a great house and deal with all the other things that come up when buying a home. She gave us an overwhelming amount of time and personalized attention! Thanks! ~ Katie
We came to Linda by word of mouth. She is a professional. We found her to be direct, sharp, friendly, helpful, knowledgeable and she even understands Dutch humor. There were no delays in responses to our inquiries and we also got hooked up with a nice queried website with houses which met our criteria. Linda also has some quality connections to skilled people which were of help to us during our “house hunt”. Our previous realtor paled into nothingness compared to the advice and service Linda brought to the table. At this point we would not hesitate to call on her again if there was a need for similar services. ~ John and Charlsie
Linda’s professionalism yet caring personality throughout the entire process of buying our new home was reassuring. She went the extra mile and was the difference in us finding a home that we will live in for many years. We cannot speak enough praises for Linda; she is truly the best of the Springs. She is Grade A, double thumbs up, 5 Stars. We are repeat customers for Linda, and we highly recommend her. Thank you Linda! You Rock! – The Randall Family
What a pleasure it is working with Linda! We appreciate her attention to detail and taking the time to get to know us and our needs. She has taken such good care of us throughout the whole home buying process and is a knowledgeable, efficient, and effective realtor to have on your team! We can’t say enough about Linda and highly recommend her to anyone looking to buy a home. – Jason and Ellen
Linda, Your professionalism, kindness & warm heart is what make you not only an outstanding Realtor but a beautiful person. We are so thankful, grateful, appreciative of your efforts to get us into out new home. – The Callahan’s.
Linda is a rare find now a days; she takes time to get to know her clients and their wants and needs and then goes out looking until the perfect home is found. She doesn’t stop there – she makes sure all the t’s are crossed and the i’s are dotted, that all the paper work is done properly, to all parties satisfaction. In this day when work is done quickly and expectations are not met you can set your sights and expectations high because Linda will meet and exceed them, much to your benefit and contentment. ~ Rita 2 x home-buyer/seller with Linda Lafferty
“Linda is a great realtor. She made us feel like we had nothing to worry about in buying a home. We put our trust in her and she did not let us down. Thank you Linda! I will be sure to pass along her name to anyone I know is looking to buy a home!” – Scott and Sherry
We have purchased many homes in our lifetimes and worked with several realtors. Still, at this stage of our lives, putting our life savings into what may be our last home was difficult. Fortunately, we found Linda Lafferty. We have never worked with a more competent, efficient, compassionate, patient (we could go on) realtor. She is in a class by herself. We were comfortable placing our total trust in her guidance and she took care of us every step of the way. Linda is a great realtor and a wonderful person. ~ Jerry and Myla
We can definitely say your enthusiasm, advice and industry knowledge was first class. You went above and beyond as our realtor which made searching for a home a most pleasurable experience. You can definitely count on our recommendations for your exemplary services to our co-workers, family and friends. ~ Stanley & Natalie
Linda is an amazing professional. She made my first-time home buying experience simple and easy. Linda was organized, accessible, and made sure everything was taken care of. Linda’s knowledge, energy, and advice were essential to helping me find the perfect home! – Mike Z
I wanted to thank you again for all that you have done for us, your professionalism is beyond compare and we will certainly recommend you, both personally and professionally, to anyone who is in the market to buy or sell a home. To up root your family and move to a new city and state can be a very exciting experience, however, with every life changing event there is also a lot of underlying stress. Having someone like you to work with has made this entire experience much more enjoyable, you treated us as dear friends, not just a clients. Your experience and guidance helped us find a home that fit our needs and we will be forever grateful. Again, thank you so much for all that you have done and your continued support as we get settled in to our new home. ~ Jeff and Tammy
We have never worked with a Realtor who did so much for us. Linda was easily accessible and kept us continually up to date on what was happening with our home sale. We never worried about a thing with Linda by our side. ~ Joy and Jeff
From the moment we met Linda we trusted her instantly knowing she had our best interest in mind. We felt that we were Linda’s only clients based on the amount of time, attention and care she provided us. As first time homebuyers we were certainly not one of Linda’s “high ticket clients” yet she treated us as if we were her most important clients. ~ Jason and Esther
Your diligence and expertise puts you in a class by yourself amongst Brokers. After all these years you still have a passion for doing your best for your clients. ~ Cathy

Linda is the best! After looking at only 6 houses we bought the first one she showed us, and we couldn’t be happier in our new home. ~ Kim and Dave
