Areas of Expertise
I work with owner occupant, small investor.
"Thanks VERY much for the way you handled the sale of my home. Your sales program was wonderful and exactly what I needed. I really enjoyed the experience. "
Robert - Westminster, CO
"We didn't know where to start but Your Castle Real Estate showed us the way. Each step of our real estate transaction was explained fully to us - we never felt out of the loop. "
Janie - Aurora, CO
"Your software program helped me quickly weed out the overpriced homes and focus on the best deals. I bought a house that my family loves and it had $35,000 of equity in it the day we purchased it!"
David - Broomfield, CO
"I was very interested in Real Estate investing but was having trouble getting started. I didn't know what to do first. The YCRE mentor program walked me through the start-up process, step-by-step and explained everything in detail. "
Darci - Castle Rock, CO
"Before your Real Estate Trends class I had no idea that the amount of appreciation varied so much from one area to another.ﾠ I have never seen this data anywhere else!ﾠ It has helped me make much better decisions about where to buy my investments and where I will buy my next home."
Troy - Denver, CO
"Thanks for telling the truth! Other real estate classes I've been to try to sugarcoat everything. You tell us how things really are!"
Charles - Littleton, CO
"I can't believe how well organized your class materials are. I got a long list of ideas that I can take action on as I prepare to sell my home. I'm looking forward to working with [the Your Castle Team] when I list my home this spring. With the market slowing down, it's important to make your home stand out from the crowd, and now I know how."
Diane - Arvada, CO
"I have consulted with Lon on at least 4-5 real estate properties this past year. Lon is not your ordinary real estate broker, he has been able to grasp technology and put it to use in the real estate business with a vengeance. His logical, system minded approach is what really makes working with him exciting. Lon's company Your Castle Real Estate is quickly become a major force to be reckoned with in the Denver marketplace. Whether you are looking for an aggressive, professional, and intelligent real estate agent to represent you or are an agent looking for a rising star in the industry to work for. I highly recommend Lon and Your Castle Real Estate."
Jerry - Denver, CO
"I wish to thank you for a most informative and interesting presentation at the Aurora Board this afternoon. You have mastered to almost impossible task of taking a vast array of numbers and converting them into a presentation which holds the interest of your audience, my hat is off to you Sir!"
Hank - Aurora
"I really appreciate all of your time and advice. Scott and I are really learning a lot from you and want to thank you for helping make this new endeavor a little less scary for us."
Patty - Golden
"I showed my Dad the materials from your classes, Being a Smart Buyer, Being a Smart Seller and Getting Started in REI [real estate investing]. He commented that it was the best information on Real Estate he had ever seen."
Al - Denver
"The tour [of rental properties] was great. I learned a lot about many aspects of the world of real estate investment. I have no experience at this and that tour gave me a lot of confidence that there are many properties that are perfect for a first time investor. I really liked how the tour was put together and the wide range of properties it included. I also liked hearing the success stories along the way from the Your Castle team. I am working closely with my YCRE agnet to develop a plan and find the right property. I will be in touch in the future and have checked the upcoming schedule of events on the website and will definitely be attending some of the upcoming seminars and tours."
Brian - Denver
"A note to let you know what GREAT service you provide for myself and other people. Lon you are a true visionary. Mike, I appreciate your positive attitude and willington to share your time and knowledge."
Doyle - Longmont
"I just wanted to drop you a note regarding the Real Talk real estate investors group. I have been to a couple of other local real estate investment groups over the past year and I have to say that the Real Talk group is by far the best place for a beginning investor to get great information. The overview of major real estate trends and local conditions regarding the current Denver market given by Lon Welsh is amazing. Couple that with the cash-flow investment property tours, your VIP credit counseling, classes on selling homes in a tough market, loan applications, etc. make the Real Talk group the most comprehensive real estate investors group in Denver."
Rob Cuscaden - Denver, CO
""While President of Colorado CRS Chapter #1 I got to know Lon Welsh through his Denver Real Estate Trends classes. His incredible knowledge of the local market coupled with his strong desire to teach and share his expertise, not only with his peers but the general public, convinced me that I wanted to work with him and move my real estate career to the next level. He is a great mentor and I highly recommend him and Your Castle Real Estate to brokers wishing to increase their knowledge and professionalism.""
