The first time I met Mimi she was the agent for a home I was buying. I remember thinking I wish she was my agent.
So nine years later when we put our family home on the market, Mimi was the agent I called. She is a straight shooter and sincere communicator with excellent negotiating skills. She sold our home for full asking price in a brief period of time. Mimi’s professional knowledge of the market combined with her concern for her clients made for a stress-free transaction of our family home. Mimi Foster is a shining example of what all real estate agents should strive to be. She always puts her clients first. She is honest, professional, and even when the going gets tough, she is kind.

As an out-of-state seller on behalf of an LLC, Mimi was the one and only reason this complicated transaction was successfully completed. She was recommended as the premier agent in the greater Colorado Springs area and rightfully so. The home sold almost instantly and for above market price; her level of communication was unmatched, as well as her grasp on what it took to effectuate a sales transaction from thousands of miles away. From interfacing with the buyer, area consignment stores, art dealer, packers, movers, return of technology devices, and even an area car dealership and a roadside assistance call (!!), she did it all with grace and a get-stuff-done mantra. She is personable, genuine, unafraid to roll up her own sleeves, and a force to be reckoned with. I’d happily run her campaign for #Mimi2024!
Let me just say, YOU ARE BEYOND AMAZING!!! You are by far the best Realtor, a consummate professional, and the number one expert in your profession!! Words can’t begin to express my appreciation of you!
Your hard work, intelligence, expertise, patience, knowledge, negotiating skills, thoroughness, humor, and dedication are beyond exceptional. You are not the average Realtor. You give 100% in all you do for your clients. I’m going to miss our talks/texts as you have become a part of my daily life. Working with you has been an outstanding experience and I hope we can do it again! You are the best there is! THANK YOU SO MUCH, MIMI!!!
I am writing you because I want you to know how truly grateful I am to have you in my life. Buying a house is the biggest adventure EVER, especially when you’re young and have absolutely no knowledge of how to go about it lol. Thank God we have you though. I haven’t felt so comfortable with a stranger in my whole life! The first time I met you, I knew you were my person! I remember looking at my husband and saying, “I love her already, she is THE ONE!”
Not one day has gone by that I have felt out of touch with you or in the dark. You always keep me updated and in the loop, and you’re always willing to fight for me!!! “WHAT WOULD I DO WITHOUT YOU??!!!” is just about my answer to everything you tell me!
We went through two other Realtors before you, and they always made me feel like it was just about the money. I’m truly grateful you are in this for me and my husband. Obviously this is your job and you need to get paid for what you do, but you have never once made it feel that way to either of us. I certainly understand how you were voted Best Realtor in Colorado Springs five years in a row. I would recommend you to ANYONE and EVERYONE! Love ya!

There are Realtors who are simply average at what they do. There are exceptional Realtors who have product knowledge, great business acumen, and exceptional marketing. Mimi Foster is a cut above exceptional. She has a passion for the market, experience, and expertise. She also takes a deep interest in her clients. Mimi has helped me buy and sell several houses over the years and is the very best. Work with her and you will feel the same way!
We cannot appropriately emphasize the extent to which Ms. Foster is the absolute epitome of perfection as a Realtor! Mimi was not only a genius, but a saint! I can honestly say that had Mimi not put forth the incredible effort she did, we would have walked away from both deals. By her attitude and work ethic, we are in the home of our dreams, and sold the house we never thought possible to sell.
Mimi maintained her cool through a bidding war on our new home, harassing phone calls from the buyer agent on our home, and smiled through it all. She calmed my frazzled nerves, giving me direction and encouragement.
Mimi’s knowledge and expertise never ceased to amaze me. She really knows her business! The Lending Broker, Title Company, and Inspector whose names she shared were professional, friendly, and thorough. Every exemplary person she sent our way in this difficult process seemed to be the best in the business. We would never buy or sell a house with anyone but Mimi Foster. I wonder why anyone else in town is in business!

Mimi helped us buy and sell two homes in Colorado Springs for good profit, always with a charismatic attitude, confident manner, and personal feel. She is someone we keep in touch with as she is extremely informed, generous with her talent, and a wonderful businesswoman! We’d work with her again and again.
Mimi – I am not writing for advice or help or a job. You have helped us several times purchase or sell a house, so I am not writing about that either! 😉 I’ve just been meaning to tell you how much I adore and admire you and how you run your business. Through these “hard times” you have found a way (many ways really) to stay relevant and in people’s lives, minds, and hearts. So many women who are entrepreneurs and strong businesswomen can get a bad rap for being feisty or bitchy, but you have remained beautiful in your strength and loving in your wit. I admire you and am inspired by you. Thank you for your example.
Mimi Foster is not your average Realtor. She has been my advocate, my negotiator, a detective who demands answers, and isn’t afraid of confronting tough issues. This kind, no-nonsense lady is one you definitely want on your team. I called Mimi in a crisis. My former home was in foreclosure due to a tenant from hell and a system that failed us. (See YouTube video: Tenant from Hell) We had a former property manager who mismanaged, then totally dropped the ball and ghosted us. We had a shady roofing company put on a new roof ordered by a tenant without our knowledge or permission. Then the roofing company slapped a $41,000 lien on our property, despite no owner contract.
Police did nothing, insurance denied claim, roofing company got paid regardless of no contract with me because apparently, they can get away with things like that. It was a mess, I was a mess, depressed over it and dealing with serious health issues that had me in and out of the hospital. It all seemed hopeless.
Until I found Mimi . . .
Did I mention she is not your average Realtor? She went to find a solution in an impossible situation. She is a genius at writing and marketing, and even though I was horrified to view her video of my home that went viral, she actually pulled it out of foreclosure and got the “House from Hell” SOLD. Miracles really do happen, especially if you have a good Realtor on your side. Thank you, Mimi Foster!
Mimi has been a gem to work with! Her level of expertise, her attention to detail, and her compassion, understanding, and kindness while working with us was the best. Thank you!
Mimi made my sale SOOOO easy. Determining that my property needed special treatment for an all-cash sale, she arranged all the aspects of the sale, adverting, pictures, she even weeded out the non-cash buyers on the day it went on the market. After several offers were submitted, we reviewed and determined which one to accept (only needed one day on the market). Even after the first offer backed out, she went to the next offer and worked so I didn’t need to do anything except concentrate on being out at the stated time. She handled everything. For an efficient, effortless sale I highly recommend Mimi.
Not only is Mimi Foster an outstanding, passionate, and hard-working Realtor with a lot of knowledge in her field, she is also a wonderful human being and friend. I was moving out of state and hired Mimi to sell my house in Colorado Springs.
I was devastated when circumstances left me to pack my entire household by myself the day before my moving truck arrived. Mimi and I met to discuss more options to sell my house. When I mentioned my dilemma, she promptly volunteered to help. She and her husband, David, were there the next evening, after having worked all day, and loaded all of my furniture and boxes tirelessly until the job was finished. The worst blizzard in years hit while we were loading the truck. Even when I asked them to leave because roads were being closed all over town, they refused. Words can’t begin to describe my true appreciation for their great help that saved me that night. I would highly recommend Mimi Foster to anybody who is thinking about selling or purchasing real estate in this area. I guarantee you will not be disappointed. She is simply the best.
I want to say that you are an angel. I want to say you are fantastic! You made the sale of my house so easy, and you had a positive attitude that other Realtors never had. I was expecting just to make a little money with the sale of my home, but you got me a great check! You got me lots of offers the first day the house went on the market, and that was fantastic! I will recommend you always. You are very honest and a hard worker, focused and dedicated to the sale even more than I ever was. You were always available and ready to respond, and willing to go above and beyond. Your service is #1 and I am very pleased with the outcome. I will always be in your debt for that! Thank you!
Mimi Foster, you are just the best!! Thank you so much for making home buying enjoyable and getting us everything we wanted. We can’t thank you enough! Working with you has been a true pleasure.
Laura and Brian Wright
Mimi Foster was fantastic! As a first-time home buyer, I had lots of questions and was very nervous about the whole process. Mimi was there for me every step of the way and made sure I felt comfortable. I love my new home! She is the best and should be proud of it.
Thanks for reading these reviews. Want more?
Mimi Foster is service before, during, and after the sale, and a friend during the entire experience. Like a duck, she is calm and cool above the surface but working like crazy below it. I would never think of using anyone else in the Colorado Springs area to buy or sell a home other than Mimi Foster.
Her years of local experience are rivaled by very few. She is professional when need be but not afraid to roll up her sleeves if things get hairy. She sold us our home in 2014 and helped us sell our home in 2016 when we decided to move out of state. When things weren’t going as quickly as we had originally hoped, she was always the calming voice of reason.
She helped us get the pricing right, get professional pictures taken, stage the home and get it sold. Her famous phrase “It’s not time to panic yet” made us feel better because we knew it was coming from experience, not hope. Mimi works behind the scenes with her network of contacts that less-senior realtors just don’t have. She helped us get the little things done after the home sold because she always has a “guy for that,” which is priceless during the stressful time of selling a home.

Mimi, you are absolutely phenomenal all around. We couldn’t have been in better hands. You have the perfect touch in patiently providing guidance in the overall home selling process, knowledge about the local Colorado market, and skills to close the deal. You made all the difference. Thank you.
Johnnie and Julia Bocanegra
Without Mimi to guide us through the process, I doubt we would have been successful in buying our “dream home” in Colorado Springs. Combining years of experience, knowledge of real estate transactions and development, and superb people skills, Mimi got the job done for us and made it enjoyable too, which is saying a lot because buying a home can be quite stressful. I highly recommend Mimi.
Mimi – I want to say thank you for all you’ve done for our family. Seriously, you’ve turned a potentially stressful move into a joyful and fun experience. Your genuine concern for our family, from your small gestures to your overwhelming support and assistance, just goes to show why you are the “Best Realtor in Colorado Springs.” I’ve dealt with Realtors in other states, and you are hands down the best out there! You were more than a Realtor to us, you were a friend, and we regard you as an honorary member of our family. Thank you so much, Mimi!
Mimi is not only a terrific real estate agent, she is a great advisor and friend. We bought two houses through her, listed two homes with her to sell, and are now working with Mimi to buy another. Mimi knows the Colorado Springs market and neighborhoods inside and out, and she has an excellent idea of which houses and areas hold long-term investment promise. We simply trust Mimi to find the right house for us. Every house she’s encouraged us to see has been an excellent fit. When listing our property, Mimi worked tirelessly to advertise the house, show it, and find a buyer. She advises on how to manage market swings and trends, and she keeps you informed along the way. Mimi is our only real estate agent in Colorado Springs, and we whole-heartedly recommend her to anyone looking for quality, excellence, and care when listing or buying a home.
Mimi has been a lifesaver for our family. She helped with everything that was needed in order to sell our deceased family member’s house. We all live out of state, and she negotiated to have the house emptied, cleaned, and all minor repairs completed. Once the house was on the market and under contract, she made the whole process extremely easy. It has been a complete pleasure to work with her.
As an out-of-state (PA) resident and prospective home Seller, I knew the logistics of getting my home sold would be extremely challenging. Mimi Foster was a godsend as she worked on a variety of issues that could have significantly delayed this transaction. My worry factor was at an all-time low as Mimi tackled one issue after another, even coordinating Caretakers to heighten the curb appeal of a home that I could not maintain at a distance. The settlement process was smooth, effortless, and one of the easiest transactions I have ever participated in. Her hard work and dedication to her customer (me) should be a shining example for all realty companies.
Mimi sold our house in Colorado. In our opinion she was second to none as a Realtor, a valuable asset to the company. She flawlessly handled the transaction in a very professional manner. Plain and simple, she was the best realtor we have dealt with over the years. She was a Godsend to us.

When my mother passed away, my siblings and I inherited a unique and historical piece of property. When we thought about a Realtor, we were at a loss as to who to call. I first called the Pioneer Museum to see if they could recommend one. They gave me Mimi’s name. Then several friends of my mother’s also knew the history and uniqueness of the property, and Mimi’s name kept coming up. I finally called her and when we got together to talk about listing the property, I was very impressed. Her knowledge of the market, her unique ways of marketing the property, her fast delivery of feedback on showings were very impressive. My siblings and I felt very fortunate to have found Mimi to sell our property.
It has been such a pleasure working with Mimi Foster. I have never met such a wonderful, kind, courteous, and hard-working Realtor. Even during this terrible economy, Mimi’s positive and persistent work ethic sold my house. It has truly been a wonderful experience working with Mimi and I would love to have the opportunity to have her represent me again in any real estate transaction. Thank you, Mimi, you’ve been AWESOME!!
Mimi is wonderful to work with. She is quick to answer all questions and made sure we understood how the whole process worked. Buying our first home, we definitely needed a little more handholding through the process and Mimi went above and beyond to make sure we knew what everything meant and how to get to the next step in the process. She was super helpful through it all. We will definitely be referring Mimi to everyone!
I have invested in single-family homes for over seven years. Mimi was one of the best sell-side realtors I’ve worked with because she was willing to adjust her – and my – expectations quickly enough to get a sale in a rapidly changing market. Selling a home under those conditions required flexibility, tenacity, and a willingness to win. Mimi embodies those qualities. I’d work with her again without hesitation.
Mimi provides exceptional service! She is friendly, fun, efficient, professional, and knowledgeable. She is also very prompt to reply to my questions and requests. She had my house sold at asking price within days! I would recommend Mimi Foster to my friends and family as their real estate agent!
Are you still here? I’m impressed! As you can see, I love to impress my clients as well.
Here’s one more batch of testimonials to prove that.
I have worked with Mimi for over twenty years selling property, buying property, and working through difficult situations regarding real estate. She is professional, responsive, and provides quality and value to every client she works with. She is top-notch and honorable and leads the profession in Colorado. She is so kind and I love doing business with her. In her profession as a Realtor, she has closed many, many transactions for people across the country relocating to Colorado Springs, as well as assisting hundreds of people purchasing real estate. Because of her passion for her work and her love of people, she is one of the best Realtors in Colorado. She is intelligent, dynamic, honest, and has an impeccable character. She truly is someone I don’t hesitate to recommend to anyone buying or selling property.
Mimi is a true professional. She is very creative, and as a highly respected real estate professional in the Colorado Springs area, she always exhibits the utmost integrity and reliability! I would recommend Mimi to anyone looking for a terrific real estate broker, who will get the job done for them with flair and creative ideas!!
Mimi Foster has been voted the Best Realtor in Colorado Springs for years, and not without justification. She is the most intelligent, creative, and experienced real estate person I have ever met. I’ve bought and sold real estate in seven states in the US and managed commercial real estate transactions in six countries. I have never worked with another person with Mimi’s diligence, organizational ability and methodical thinking, combined with excellent people skills and a street-smart savvy approach to negotiation. She is a broker who has perfected intelligent compromise. If you’re in the market for real estate in the Colorado Springs area, I recommend Mimi Foster without reservation!
Everywhere I go I hear high praise for Mimi. Her roots are in the quaint, classic Downtown Colorado Springs area, and she brings that quality to everything she does. Yesterday, I ran into a couple who were the buyers for one of Mimi’s listings. They raved about how she helped them pick colors for their rehab, even though they weren’t her clients. She is amazing and caring with everyone whose life she touches.
