I live in California and wanted to sell my rental house in Montrose Colorado. Because of the circumstances I was not able to oversee any of the vast repairs to the house after many years of it being a rental When it was time to begin the repairs every contractor that I called was tied up. Alan was able to find a contractor for me who did an excellent job. After the repairs were completed Alan Brown listed the house and it sold a short time later. I was very satisfied with the service that Alan provided.

We interviewed Alan along with three other real estate agents and felt that he was definitely the best choice. His performance in listing and getting our townhouse sold was great. He is a no nonsense type of person, and we really appreciated that. We will definitely use him again.

Alan helped me buy a house quickly and the process was very smooth. I'd recommend Alan to anyone looking to move to Montrose. I was moving from Boulder to Montrose and it was helpful to have a good realtor make the transaction happen.

Alan was professional and knowledgeable throughout the whole process. He worked with us and was patient with our indecision. He cut a trip short to come back to meet us to show us houses. He was very low pressure, which we appreciated very much. I would highly recommend Alan for any real estate needs.

We chose to work with Alan Brown after reading dozens of glowing reviews and are happy to add our own experience to those reviews. We were moving from 5 hours away and were unable to look at homes in person for several weeks. Alan put together a data page of homes for us to look at online and shaped further recommendations for us based on what we thought of those homes. He emailed daily with updates or answers to our questions and was very happy to offer advice about the area and the local real estate market. We came to Montrose for a weekend to look at homes and Alan spent two entire days driving us around and showing us places. He even set up some second looks for us at the last minute and was happy to accommodate. We are first time home buyers and Alan made sure to give us pertinent information about the buying process as well as the homes and neighborhoods we were considering. We felt guided throughout the process- not pushed or pressured. Alan helped us get a great home and even helped take care of some minor issues prior to our move-in. We absolutely recommend Alan to anyone looking for a helpful, honest, and kind real estate professional!

Mr. Brown was very professional in acting as our buyer's agent, during our recent house hunt in early June, 2015. He showed us properties in both the Montrose and Delta areas, and provided us with his knowledge of the area. That was very helpful for us. When we came across the property we did purchase, Mr. Brown was right there when information was passed from us to the seller, and back. He facilitated a smooth transaction, advised us on the current status of the Montrose real estate market, and made use of electronic contract signing so we could complete this out-of-town purchase without added stress. We would highly recommend Mr. Brown, and not hesitate to enlist his services again.

My experience with Alan was actually two fold. First, he helped me look for a ready built home. When I didn't find what I was looking for, we switched stratagies, and began looking for land on which to build. Alan was not only knowledgeable about the Montrose and surrounding area, he was very helpful in narrowing down what we were looking for. Alan has a solid understanding of the entire process of real estate buying. I HIGHLY recommend Alan to anyone who is wanting to buy or build in the Montrose, Colorado area.

Very professional and knowledgeable. Worked hard to help us get the home we wanted for a price within our budget. Will definitely use Alan again in the future and have and will continue to recommend him to others.

Recently I worked with Alan to buy my first home. I told him that I wanted an exceptional value and he helped me find it. The home was listed as a short-sale opportunity for about 1/3 of the original cost to build, and was in a desirable location in town Montrose. Needless to say, there were many people interested. Alan was the first to see it come on the MLS, and got me in there before anyone else. This enabled me to get it under contract before anyone else, and ultimately close on it. However, navigating the short-sale process was not simple, and Alan's experience was the difference between persevering or walking away. Alan did a great job for me, and I will continue to recommend him anyone looking for exceptional values and service. Thanks Alan!

I was referred to Alan by a friend. His style is very low key yet very professional. Both of which I appreciated. He was quick to answer any and all questions about a given property - HOA info, covenants, utility specifics, property details, etc.
I was searching for property for over a year with Alan and he was extremely patient with me and very accommodating. I give him the highest marks and recommend him without reservations.

Our home was listed by Alan Brown and sold in less than 30 days. He guided us through the process with his realty expertise, prompt attention to all details involved with selling a home and exceptional professionalism. My husband and I appreciated that Alan also worked quickly to address the contract conditions of the relocation company that was moving us. He is very accessible and helpful and we highly recommend him for your realty needs!

After working with Alan, we aren't surprised that he has been named Real Estate Professional of the Year numerous times here in Montrose. He is very knowledgeable, and will tell you what he really believes is true about the market, pricing, trends, and so on rather than just saying what you might want to hear.
He listens very well, takes time to find out what his clients' needs are, and is never pushy. We recommend Alan Brown without reservation.

We were sure that the commission on the purchase of our bank owned townhouse was minimal. We expected the realtor to be rather lax for that reason. Alan was quite the opposite. He was great, He handled everything promptly and correctly throughout the process to make it all go smoothly. Our only complaint was that the listing advised that the homeowners assn. paid the water/trash through the HOA dues and that was not the case. We did not find that our until closing day. Not a great disappointment but a small one.

Alan guided our family through the process of purchasing a foreclosure. His expertise made the transaction smooth. During the home-search process, he was frank with his advice on the choice of locations and the condition of homes. This proved invaluable for us as we were new to the area.

Alan helped us buy our first home, then my in-laws used him to both buy and sell a home, and then we used him again to sell that first home 12 years later. All of us had great experiences with Alan. During that time he was always available to answer questions and has been so good to us. He has been in the area a long time and has seen the ups and downs so he knows the market extremely well. He is low key and easy going in person but is quick to get information that is accurate and complete. We were in another state when we sold our home, so we leaned heavily on Alan and were not disappointed. He has our full trust, and is worthy of yours.

There were lots of things that made this purchase very challenging, but thanks to Alan’s help we were finally able to close the deal. He not only had referrals for things like an inspector and insurance, but he also was on top of things in making sure that others did their job. From problems with the seller (it was a foreclosure) to problems with our lender, he really was on top of things and kept us informed of potential problems. I would highly recommend Alan to anyone looking to buy a home.

We just dropped in late in the afternoon on July 3rd and found Alan Brown working at that late hour. We talked at length, and over the coming year he sent us listing that might interest us via e-mail (we live 1500 miles away from Montrose). The following summer we visited again and brought several requests for him to show us, which he cheerfully did. In the meantime, he had selected a few others to show us, which turned out to be far more interesting and appropriate--his professional expertise coming in to play. At no time did he hurry or pressure us, and we certainly took plenty of time. To make a long story shorter, we made an offer from home several weeks later on a property he had selected. It was a perfect choice--he really nailed it--and we adore it. From beginning to end he guided us and shepherded the process perfectly; every deadline was met comfortably, and the entire process went like clockwork. In the Montrose area, you cannot do better than Alan Brown of Coldwell Banker. My attempt at this same review yesterday seemed not to go through, so if it turns out to be a duplicate, apologies.

Alan Brown is a knowledgeable real estate agent in the Montrose, Colorado area. He is very professional and did a great job for me in trying to sell my home in a very difficult market and economical time. He always gave me his honest opinion and tried to help me make decisions that was best for me. Unfortunatley, it did not sell and I decided to keep my home rather than sell for right now. I would use him again as my realtor if I decide to sell my home or buy property in the future.
