How can we help?(Required)

We used Derek Leif to make an offer and close on our new home. We have been deeply satisfied with his professionalism as well as how he protected our interests by showing us comparables and pointing out flaws in homes that could cause us issues down the road. We we finally found a house we liked, and he wasn’t afraid to ask the sellers for closing costs and to resolve any issues with the home prior to closing. We really felt like Derek and team Johnson were really on out side and in our corner.

The Johnson Team in Colorado Springs is second to none. My agent is Derek Lief. When I was thinking of moving to Colorado Springs, Derek was the only agent who would promptly return my calls. He even set me up on the local MLS so I could also see in real time any new homes coming on the market. Derek and the whole Johnson Team was always available to me. Derek totally knows the market, and helped me from over paying for a home in this very competitive market. Not only does Derek know the market, but he also set me up with a great financing team, which also saved me money. Derek is always available to answer any questions, and I KNOW he will always have your best interests and will take the pressure off of you and make the buying experience exceptional!

We used Derek Leif to purchase our new home. As a military family (with both spouses being in two separate states from the one we were going to be living in), we required our realtor to more hands on and more of a voice for us. Derek did just that. He was very patient and receptive to our unique situation. In short, Derek was always on our side working to make our house purchase as simple and successful as possible. The best part about working with Derek was that he was always more focused on answering our questions, giving us good advice, and on our needs than he was on closing a deal. We would recommend him to anyone.
