Jon Adams

Buying and Selling a home might very well be the most expensive purchase our clients make. We are honored that so many people have trusted us to handle their real estate transaction. Those that felt the same way have left comments below to help give others a sense of what working with us is like.

My experience with Jon was exceptional. It took us more than four months to find what I was looking for and he was extremely diligent and patient with me as we sorted through available inventory. He was a consummate professional once I made an offer and helped me negotiate a reasonable savings in a hot real estate market. His knowledge of the locals and of the entire surrounding area helped me tremendously and allowed me to narrow my search and find my dream home and land. I want to add that the service did not end with the closing as he has been instrumental in helping me find service professionals such as plumbers and electricians that responded to me because of his referral. I would highly recommend anyone searching for a home in Chafee County and the surrounding area use Jon Adams as their realtor. He keeps his word and is a pleasure to deal with.

We couldn't have asked for a better realtor when we bought our property in Salida. Jon was very knowledgeable about the local market and went above and beyond to ensure the property we purchased was right for us. He was always quick to respond to calls, emails, texts, and helped us identify local resources and ask important questions. Jon was a pleasure to work with and we would highly recommend him to any and everyone considering purchasing a property in the Arkansas Valley.

We found Jon on Zillow and are out of state. I contacted him when we were planning on a trip to the area look at properties and when we arrived he was friendly and showed us all the properties we were interested in. Prior to arrival he provided suggestions of similar properties and even when a new listing popped up hours before our planned meeting, he was flexible enough to obtain the info. quickly. We ended up making an offer that day on the newly-listed property and he was more than willing to accommodate us. He was very flexible so that we could conduct most of the business online to make things quick and easy. His knowledge of the area and real estate in general make him a great choice. I have background in real estate, title work and real estate law and was impressed with his ability to present information succinctly and intelligently. We will definitely work with him again!

I found Jon on Zillow while perusing real estate in Salida. He actually picked up the phone when I called him and agreed to show me some lots that weekend, even though I wasn't that serious of a buyer.

He met with my husband and I on a Sun. morning and showed us around to all the lots, even though another realtor only offered to draw maps. We enjoyed learning about his real estate experience and what he knew about the area.

He showed us a property that was taken off the market after we shared what we liked. The property came back on the market and he helped us with the negotiations and get our dream property.

The best part about working with Jon was that he was efficient with email and all work was done online. We didn't have to drive 2.5 hours to Salida, even for the closing. Thanks for your help, Jon!

We selected Jon as our realtor to sell my mom’s house and we were so glad that we did! Jon was very professional and knows the area and what it has to offer very well. We were very pleased with the photos and the info he used to present our house on the web and on all sales info. He was very understanding to the needs and the security of my mother who had lived in the area for 60 years. I grew up in Salida and knew the reputation that First Colorado Land Realtors and Jon had and knew we were in good hands. I would recommend Jon to all my friends, family members and anyone that wants to sell or buy their house .

Jon recently sold a cabin and acreage for me in Fremont County, Colorado. He is smart, efficient, knowledgeable, technologically savvy and personable. He recognizes the importance of professional-quality photographs and a strong web presence. He loves the area and that helps him sell it.

Jon proved especially adept at sensitive negotiations with a neighbor over access that wasn’t clearly deeded. He made the deal happen, and I would enthusiastically use him again.

Jon Adams knows Salida and the surrounding areas well , he knows real estate in all its details, and he knows how to work with all sorts of people and personalities. I can’t imagine that there is a realtor who knows Salida better than Jon. Jon understands all of the process of dealing in the residential real estate, but he also cares to put that understanding to work for his clients. My wife Jaynie and I can testify to that, as well as to his professionalism and conscientious attention to detail. We also enjoyed working with him, which we believe is important when buying and selling homes. That kind of comfort leads to good, thorough communication and solid trust. It also helps with the less tangible challenges of the whole process.

He kept us up to date. Treated us with respect. Acted more like a friend than a realtor. I had surgery due to an accident that would not allow us to go forward building a house so we had to sell the lot. We were very unhappy about selling it but we knew we had to. John was very understanding and handled the transaction with compassion and respect.

Jon helped by husband and I locate vacant property for sale in a new subdivision on the Arkansas River near Salida, CO, which is exactly what we were looking for. He was very knowledgeable about land for sale as well as some houses that might have been suitable. We recommended him to my sister to find a home to purchase in Salida and she was very pleased with him, and is now in her new home.

We will certainly use Jon for any future real estate transactions, and would not hesitate to recommend him to anyone looking for vacant land or a home.

Over the years we have bought and sold 12 homes and worked with at least 10 different realtors. I would put Jon at the top of my list. He has had many different life experiences which give him the kind of knowledge that is very helpful in assisting a prospective buyer in evaluating various properties. In addition I have had several people make comments to me praising Jon's outstanding integrity. I would use Jon again as my realtor and would recommend him without reservation.
