“I was fortunate enough to have the opportunity to work with Raquel during my recent home buying endeavor. This was my first home purchase, so I was apprehensive about all of the unknowns and trying to enter such a hot market. From our very first conversation, Raquel made me feel at ease and confident in her ability to help me find a home in a very short timeline as I was moving back to Colorado from out of state and had only 4 days for a house hunting trip. At the time I was looking, Colorado Springs was very much a seller’s market where many properties were going under contract within 2 or 3 days and selling for several thousand over asking price. Even with these hurdles, Raquel was confident that she would be able to help me find something. Although I lost the first property I put an offer in for because I wasn’t willing to continue a bidding war, Raquel helped me find an absolutely incredible home and worked with the seller to ensure I paid a fair price. There is no way for me to truly express my gratitude to Raquel and to thank her for her tireless efforts to help me find my perfect first home. She was incredibly attentive to my needs, very responsive, explained things in a way I could understand, and I felt that she truly cared about me as a person as well as a client. I would recommend her to anyone looking to buy or sell their home. She is an incredible agent and I trust that she will deliver the same level of service to anyone who is fortunate enough to work with her. ”
“So, I decided to sell my house, pack up, and move myself and my dogs from Texas to Colorado Springs. Prior to making the move I visited the city a few times and met with Raquel to look and learn about the The Springs and browse potential homes. Her warmth and what can best be described as utter charm won me over immediately! She knew exactly what a single girl like me needed after I gave her a rather short list of my likes/dislikes and lifestyle. She happily drove me all over town and was always available to answer all of my questions. Once I returned home, she sent me lists of new-to-market houses on a daily basis and even took videos of the ones that drew my interest.
The best part? She has the patience of Job. She held my hand through the unavoidably stressful loan process and I’ll admit to being a bit of an emotional mess. Raquel, however, remained as cool and as cheery as a cucumber through the entire process. Her level of knowledge about the ever changing real estate market is also second to none.
I’d like to pretend she’s all mine but, unfortunately, she doesn’t just belong to me. I will gladly share her and The Platinum Group realtors with anyone looking to purchase a home. You won’t find anyone better.”
“Raquel was most responsive on our initial inquiry and immediately set up a time to talk on the phone. Her organization and promptness was outstanding. She was relatable and honest throughout the entire home buying process – everything on Raquel’s end was executed perfectly.
Thank you Raquel, for being an amazing Realtor. We appreciate all you did!”

“We moved to Colorado Springs about 6 months ago by choice. We visited the area and it seemed to offer everything we were seeking for the next phase of our lives. We initially rented an apartment using our free-time, mostly weekends, to gain a better understanding of the area with the purpose of buying a home. Our expectation was to buy in about a year: we wanted to be able to make an informed decision.
We attended many open houses and spoke to many realtors, but Raquel immediately stood out to us. Before ever making a statement—delivering a value proposition—she asked us many questions. This not only projected that a relationship with her would be oriented on our needs, but when she recommended properties in which we might have an interest, every one of them did meet our basic needs. Every visit to our next potential home with her was an immensely valuable experience for us as we examined it against our needs with Raquel listening closely, asking more questions, and offering insights. Her demeanor was never about trying to sell us something, but selflessly trying to find the right fit for us.
Once we decided to make an offer on a home, throughout the process, from constructing the offer thru closing she remained proactively attentive to us. There are probably several dozen critical steps leading up to a closing, and Raquel’s milestone reminders were always timely, helpful, and delivered with kindness and understanding.
We can offer no suggestions on how we would improve this experience. And I would add that Patty, was a real estate broker in Pennsylvania with quite a bit of experience—not the most attractive clients for a realtor.
While we have no specific client recommendations now, we have spoken very highly of Raquel to just about anyone who would listen, and will continue to do so. When we do know of someone who is seeking a home, we will, without hesitation, send them to Raquel.”

Raquel is amazing not only as an agent but also as a person. She was very attentive and also quick to respond. She drove me and my son around town and for last hour my son was crying and Raquel was super nice about it. She made sure we kept up with all important dates and never missed our due date on paperwork. She is extremely professional and we are happy that she was our agent 🙂

“We recently decided to move from central Iowa to Colorado. We reached out to Raquel Robison with The Platinum Group in Colorado Springs to help us find the perfect home. She couldn’t have been more helpful. We were totally unaware of what part of the Colorado Springs area we wanted to be. She set us up with a portal that had our wants/needs in a house in various locations. We chose several different homes in several different areas and she diligently drove us to each one. After many days of driving/looking, we finally narrowed down what area we would like to be in. Unfortunately, we made offers on two homes and lost both to higher offers. This didn’t deter her whatsoever. She wouldn’t give up and kept looking for us until she found just what we were looking for. I’m delighted to say that we found the perfect home with her patience and guidance. She recommended a lending institution that worked with us from beginning to closing. Everyone was very professional and helpful through every step. We can’t recommend Raquel highly enough. If you’re looking for a realtor that will go out of her way to find your dream home, you should call her.”

“Raquel is Awesome! She made the process of selling our old home and then buying our dream home easy and smooth”

“Raquel was very patient with me and never rushed me to buy a property. She still checks on me after the transaction. It was great working with Raquel. Hopefully we will work together again on future transactions.”
“Raquel sold my house in 8 days! She is efficient and knowledgable. I highly recommend her to anyone looking to buy or sell.”
“My husband and I chose Raquel Robison as our Realtor after researching and interviewing several other Realtors, including some of the big names in town. Her down-to-earth personality and positive, customer-oriented attitude sold us, as well as her knowledge of the local market. Through the listing and sale of our home (which took less than three weeks!) Raquel was always on top of the details, did what she said she would, listened to what we wanted, and was just really great to work with. She kept me posted on progress and activity, and was very professional with the pictures, flyers and other marketing for the home. She proactively marketed our home as well as following up with the Realtors who showed it to their clients. She was willing to do what it took to get the job done and our home sold. We ended up with three offers, which was great in the slow market we were in. Her help enabled us to quickly sell our home with (relatively!) low stress so that we could relocate since my husband had already started a new job. I would highly recommend Raquel to anyone!”

Raquel has a positive, upbeat attitude. Good competence in handling all aspects of the transaction.
