"Steve LaForest and Kellen Miles were great!!!"

Evans, CO


Transaction Completed:

"I'm grateful that Steve or Kellen were often available for when I had questions. They responded promptly to emails. While there was some confusion as to how the home buyer program worked with down payments, it was still a useful program."

Loveland, CO


Transaction Completed:

"Kellen and Steve are always on it. They over predict things so you never get surprises in the end. The only surprise is money that they over predicted. Steve has a great team!"

Briggsdale, CO


Transaction Completed:

"Steve and Kellen made everything so easy. It was our realtor and our first time using BAP. Steve did a great job explaining the whole process, more than once, and was very patient with us. Thanks for all the help and great work!"
