    Ryan & Craig gave Marquesa 5 stars out of 5
    From start to finish, Marquesa was absolutely wonderful to work with. We never once felt like we were just a number, or a paycheck. Everything she did throughout the entire process had our best interests at heart. She truly treated us like family. She is kind, patient, and understanding. Marquesa was willing to give her opinion when asked, and being new to the area, this was incredibly helpful to us. She is always available on short notice, and so friendly and compassionate with her responses. She was willing to help every step of the way, in whatever capacity we needed. We honestly cannot recommend Marquesa strongly enough!

    Being a first-time home buyer can be over overwhelming and sometimes intimidating. You often don't know facts from fiction when family and friends tell you stories about their home buying experience. This was my case trying to make sense of this process. I had talked to numerous real estate agents with the promise of them taking care of me since I was using the VA home loan to purchase my first home. When they broke their promise to come through, I was at my wit's end. My co-worker overheard I was getting frustrated with the realtor finding process. He suggested I meet with Marquesa Hobbs since he and his family had such a pleasant experience with her. Not only did Marquesa keep her promises, but she also kept it "real" for me without the curtain of fiction that I got from other realtors. Even though Marquesa is a great realtor, she can't be in two places at once. So she has the help of an assistant named Heather, who is an equally great realtor in her own right. So, with the help of this tag-team pair made the house hunting experience go very well. Both Marquesa and Heather took the time to get to know me and what I wanted in a house. And they made it very clear the importance of making of list of "must needs" in a home so that when you find a place in this fast paced market, you can act on it right away. So, in my opinion, where Marquesa shines in her craft is in communication with the listing agents. She is a skilled negotiator in picking out what needs to say to make your bid shine, both verbal and on paper. Trust in her judgment on what to put in the bidding contact and when to do it. And, when you finally get that "under contact" status, she is on top of all the time table objectives and keeps you in the loop of what is due and when. So, when your closing date arrivals, there are no surprises. So if you need a realtor that is dependable, trustworthy, responsiveness, and has excellent negotiating skills, look no further than Marquesa Hobbs as your next realtor!

    Marquesa Hobbs is truly an awesome realtor. We have dealt with many realtors over the years and can honestly say Marquesa was the best. Marquesa knows the market and works hard to find you the perfect home. She also worked to find a buyer for our home and was with us through every step of the process. Marquesa is also very involved in many charitable organizations that shows how passionate she is about the community she serves. A true professional.

    Christina gave Marquesa 5 stars out of 5
    We initially chose Marquesa from an outstanding review we read. In reality, Marquesa proved to be all that was said about her and more. Very professional, very supportive and helpful in every way, honest, and always prepared with the next steps in mind. She is out to please and make the whole process a positive experience. Her expertise on how to handle a bumpy road shows her amazing professional competence. Even though our home-buying experience was not ideal, Marquesa went out of her ways (very unexpectantly) to make things up for us personally. We know that our next house will be purchased in a very short time and we also know that Marquesa will be our realtor for that process as well. 5 Stars and 2 thumbs up for Marquesa!!! 😊

    Marquesa is the BEST! Unequivocal recommendation for any buyer or seller in Colorado Springs and surrounding area! My family and I recently moved here on military orders. Despite knowing nothing about the area, we were committed to buying our first home here. We feel extremely fortunate to have had the opportunity to have Marquesa's representation during the process, and we are thrilled with the home she helped us buy. Marquesa is a true professional. She is kind, patient, and genuinely attentive to her client's tastes and interests. She overcommunicates but is never pushy. She was totally locked-on all the way through our buying experience and always went above and beyond to answer our many (often amateurish) questions. She is also an absolute expert in Colorado's hot real estate market and a natural problem solver, which at the end of the day translated into an amazing deal on a perfect house for us. Our deal came close to falling through at several points after going under contract, and without Marquesa's diligent work to find solutions that worked in our favor, we would have lost out on our perfect home. We truly could not have had a more positive experience with her, and without hesitation we will be working with her again when the time comes.

    Marquesa was our guide through the entire home buying process and we valued her opinion. Buying a house means spending a lot of money and that can be stressful. We always felt comfortable with Marquesa. She is professional and warm at the same time. She was always ready with good recommendations and helped us focus to find our beautiful new home!

    Marquesa was amazing to work with! This was my second deal with her, and she once again went above and beyond to find the perfect buyers for my house! I was moving out of state, and she even helped me find a good realtor for my new place and kept in touch to ensure that deal went smoothly as well. She is very knowledgable and takes the time to make sure you have all the information you need every step of the way. Having worked with other realtors, I can say Marquesa truly goes above and beyond and really takes the time to make sure you have the best experience possible! I would highly recommend!

    Marquesa was amazing to work with! She really takes the time to find out what is really important to you in your search and was always willing to work with my somewhat crazy schedule. She is very knowledgable and really helped to educate me in everything I needed to know. She went way above and beyond in finding me the perfect house. Once we found it, the deal was NOT an easy one! We had inflexible sellers and a VERY difficult agent to work with, and she had to put in a lot of extra time to make sure the deal closed. All of which she did with the highest level of professionalism and a smile. I would highly recommend her to anyone!

    ROBERT gave Marquesa 5 stars out of 5
    We are a military family that received orders to the Colorado Springs area this summer. Based on reading reviews of various realtors in the area, Marquessa was an easy choice for us. She is the epitome of a professional. She was detail oriented, easy to work with, polite, quick to reply, always happy to see us, and kept us informed every step of the way. When we didn't understand a part of the home buying process, she went out of her way to put it in the simplest of terms for us. Once we selected the house we knew we wanted to call home, Marquessa helped facilitate a 30 day close. After the sale, she has remained in contact with our family. Marquessa has many working relationships with other professionals in the area, and has been able to make recommendations for us when we voiced wanting to have upgrades done in our home. If you are looking to purchase a home in the Colorado Springs area, Marquessa is your girl! -The Smith Family

    Marquesas and her assistant Leila have been amazing from the start. From the our first interaction, she demonstrated her knowledge and determination to sell my house. What sold me most was the profile she assembled to determine the value of my home. She constantly kept me informed and ensured my best interests were her top priority. I strongly recommend her and have recommended her to everyone I know.

    We used Marquesa Hobbs to sell our home in Colorado Springs this spring and she was outstanding. Before choosing a real estate agent, I was of the opinion that all real estate people were the same, they listed your property and then held out their hand for payment. I had had some good experience with ERA Shields before so I decided to give them a try and I selected Marquesa by luck. We spoke with Marquesa and then met with her at our home. She spent a lot of time answering our questions, providing objective data regarding how many homes they sell, how long their listings typically stay on the market, and providing info on comparitive sales and listings in the area. Marquesa made the process incredibly easy and took extra steps many other Realtors don't (but should), like having a pro come and give us staging tips, having professional photographs taken, and a lot more. She set up the staging of our home and it looked great. When we saw our listing we were blown away. Her hard work and knowledge of what it takes to sell a home really paid off - our listing looked amazing and knocked out the competition. Our house went under contract the same day we put it on the market at above asking price. We accepted and Marquesa (and Leila, who was also incredibly friendly and helpful) walked us through every step of the closing process. It couldn't have been a more pleasant experience. I've recommended the Marquesa Hobbs to everyone I know. She's a true professional and a genuinely nice person. I realize it won't always be this easy to sell your home, but I think you'd be hard pressed to find a better Realtor, a real REALTOR and not just an agent.

    Marquesa was an absolute pleasure to have as our real estate agent. Marquesa never left any questions unanswered and always responded promptly. Being stationed overseas where my husband and I couldn't be present, she went out of her way to attend appointments on our behalf. She genuinely cares about her clients. she's always willing to go above and beyond. I would highly recommend her!

    During our 28 years in the military we have moved 13 times and have bought and sold 20 homes. We have worked with many, many real estate agents over the years. And we can say without a doubt, Marqesa is clearly one of the best agents ever! From day one, she listened to our needs, wants and desires. She was never pushy, always just a phone call or text away, day or night. As a buyers agent, she was second to none! She helped us get everything we wanted in the negotiation process and more. Rarely have I felt so in control and assured as we did with Marquesa by our side. In fact, even our loan officer commented on how she wished everyone was as easy to work with as Marquesa. If you are looking for a true professional who will guide you through the complexities of your first or your 20th home purchase, I could not not think of anyone better than Marquesa Hobbs.

    I have only the absolute positive feedback to give Marquesa Hobbs. She is the utmost top tier professional. I am in the military and i was in training in Texas. Marquesa went to every house I wanted to see and took many pictures and even video walk through a via FaceTime. Any questions I had she was able to take care of and usually within a day. I even had an issue after the closing on the house and she took it upon herself to make sure it got taken care of and made all the arrangements for me. I cannot imagine i would have gotten the house i did with out her help. I would still be looking. I am grateful to have found her when I did and I would recommend her 5 out of 5 times.

    Marquesa did an amazing job assisting me with finding a house. She showed me homes that were in my price range and in the style that I was looking for. The day we made an offer, another buyer also submitted a bid. Marquesa worked with the seller's realtor and was able to secure my bid to be the winner. She stayed linked in to the home market, buyers needs and the sellers desires. Marquesa did a wonderful job, THANK YOU!

    We have worked with countless realtors as we bought and sold 10 homes throughout the years and Marquesa truly is the best! We were lucky enough to find her as were transitioning from London to Colorado Springs this summer. Building a home from across the world and 7 times zones away was no easy feat but Marquesa made the process impeccably smooth and consistently put our minds at ease. She was not only professional and conscientious but a delight to work with. I cannot say enough how impressed we were with every step of the way. We will definitely be using her again -- and you should too!

    Marquesa did a terrific job helping me with the sale of my home. She always responded promptly to emails/texts/voicemails, was military friendly, and the epitome of a true professional. She had an excellent understanding of the market, was helpful throughout the negotiations, and her estimate of the timeframe for completion of the sale proved correct. I highly commend her services - I had a significantly better overall experience working with Marquesa than with my previous realtor in Colorado Springs. - Mike

    In January of this year my husband accepted a job in Colorado Springs, which would mean a move for our family of 6 from Michigan. We had never even been to Colorado before. Marquesa was recommended by another coworker, and she was fabulous!! She helped us with the transition of moving so well. She toured us around the Springs and explained the different areas. We were looking for the perfect house, she listened to our concerns and really got a feel of what we wanted! It took some time because the inventory was so low, but she kept reassuring us that the right house would come along shortly! When it did, she was great at negotiating our deal! We got the perfect place for the right price! Marquesa was so helpful all the way thru the deal!! She was professional and very knowledgeable. Without her input we likely wouldn?t have gotten the property, because of the crazy market! I would recommend Marquesa to anyone that is moving to the Springs area, if you use her you for your real-estate needs you won?t be disappointed!!!

    Before you look any further, stop, and call Marquesa Hobbs, 719-238-0330. Marques's attention to your specific needs and wants is undoubtedly her strength. She knows the area extremely well and is very open and honest throughout the entire selling/buying process. Her communication and professionalism is above and beyond what you can from other realtors. She takes the time to get to know you and your family and works tirelessly for you. I HIGHLY recommend you work with Marquesa, you will walk away with the most positive selling/buying experience in your lifetime!

    I could write a book about the Helpfulness and guidance this amazing lady provided. I don’t even know where to begin, but chose this amazing lady to help find your home. This is our first home and we have Marquesa to thank for that. She is without a doubt the lynch pin person for us to thank for home ownership. She has gone above and beyond with a smile and professionalism that is unsurpassed. When our pre-approval was being difficult Marquesa saved the day with some recommendations of local lenders, who in turn got us set up for a better loan. Even when the first time we put an offer in and the listing was cancelled the next morning, I worried. Marquesa smiled that great smile and said “we will find one even better”. We couldn’t be happier, words don’t express how appreciative we are to have worked with her. Should we need to, we will be grateful to work with her again. I can’t recommend her help enough

    First off, I must admit that I am a first time home buyer. As you could imagine, I was extremely nervous. Thankfully, I got in touch with Marquessa! Her knowledge, patience and professionalism made the process extremely smooth. I cannot imagine any body else that has a wider set of real estate skills, respect for her clients and passion for getting things done right! Thank you for changing my life in the most positive way!

    Marquesa did a great job helping us find a home in Black Forest at the end of a very long search using some other realtors. Some buyer's reps make kind of a song-and-dance out of showings rather than quietly listening to get to know you. We felt Marquesa paid close attention to us, didn't try to sell us on things we didn't want, took interest in and respected our own experience, while also picking up on the fact that we needed someone who would shepherd us gently in hitting contract deadlines during the process of landing the deal. In addition to her professionalism she also struck us as being exceptionally kind and thoughtful. The whole process went very smoothly for all involved.

    Marquesa was absolutely phenomenal to work with. Despite living in a different state, and international trip, and numerous other difficulties, she worked tirelessly to help me find a house that I loved. Her knowledge and ability to ask pointed questions help us both narrow down what I was searching for, and her experience helped secure the house despite a multiple-offer situation. Not only did she help to find a house, she also offered great insight and advice on the local area. She made a first-time buyer feel very comfortable and the whole home buying experience much easier than I would have previously guessed. I will definitely be recommending her to anyone that wants to move to Colorado Springs

    Marquesa was awesome to work with. I was an out of state buyer that took about 2 years to make the move. Marquesa was very patient during the process. She was very knowledgeable about the market & coming from out of state that was very important to me. She understood the specific needs I had with making the purchase. She went above & beyond for me with the inspections, deadlines & taking care of the many needs I had with coming from out of state. Marquesa is very committed to her buyers. I would highly recommend Marquesa to anyone looking to buy or sell their home. Thank you Marquesa!!

    We were nervous about the process of selling our home and buying a new home, especially in the very competitive market Colorado Springs has had lately. However, Marquesa is extremely knowledgeable about the market and consistently negotiated on our behalf, resulting in outcomes we never dreamed possible! We were relieved that she managed all dates and deadlines so effectively, and kept us apprised as to what we could expect in each step of the process. I know she was working with other clients, but she always responded to us promptly and made us feel so special. Marquesa is clearly dedicated to outstanding customer service, and was extremely patient, kind, and professional. We were so grateful to have her representing us, and will definitely work with her on any future home buying or selling transactions we have!

    Marquesa was fantastic to work with. And, in the competitive housing market in Colorado Springs, we wouldn't have landed our house without her help. We moved from Atlanta, and Marquesa was very patient while we learned the city and figured out where we wanted to live. Once she knew what we liked, she found our house! We highly recommend her.

    Marquesa Hobbs is a true professional. Period. From the start we were very comfortable working closely with Marqusa. Her kind demeanor, her knowledge and confidence in the field of real estate was refreshing. She was available to show us properties, to answer our questions and walk us through every step of buying our home. Marquesa stayed on top of our inspections and on our deadlines to fulfill our contract obligations. When we learned that our lenders rates and terms wouldn't fit our specific needs, she helped us find a most reputable and equally professional lender, who was fantastic! Unfortunately, our closing had to be delayed because repairs to our new home were not completed on time despite Marquesas multiple inquirys to the progress of that work and several attempts to contact the other agent. Marquesa went above and beyond setting clear expectations for moving forward and she communicated our frustrations most professionally to the listing agent when we were too upset to do ourselves. Marquesa"s dedication to her clients is unyielding. We are SO greatful we had the pleasure of working with her on the purchase of this home. Marquesa was reliable, most competent in her field and beyond diligent. If you don't call Marqusa Hobbs to represent you in real estate, you are simply doing yourself the disservice. Thank You Marquesa!

    2018 Pikes Peak Real Estate Year in Review

    Last year our local real estate market once again was red hot. The average sales price for the year jumped more than 10% to $347,289 mostly due to continued strong demand in most price ranges and continued low inventory.  Our market was largely driven last year by the strong local economy and the increase in population. The local unemployment rate hit record lows thanks to significant job announcements and higher wages allowed more people to afford more.  Please click on the link below...

    How to Stage to Sell

    There's a lot of art and science that goes into properly staging a home. The goal of staging is to transform a house into a home. You want to make each room feel so warm and inviting that potential homebuyers can't help but visualize their lives within those walls.The key is to highlight your home's good parts and downplay its flaws. It may seem silly, but something as simple as a dim living room or outdated bed linens can rub a buyer in the wrong way and ruin any possibility of a sale. Here are...
