For several decades, my goal has been to provide clients with a high degree of personal and professional service. These latest testimonials from treasured clients and raving fans are prized possessions and indicate I continue to achieve my goal. I sincerely thank you for your enduring support and encouragement!
As an out of state seller on behalf of an LLC, Mimi was the one and only reason the 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!
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 business women 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.
The first time I met Mimi she was the agent for a home I was buying. I remember thinking I wish she were 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.

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 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!
Let me just say, YOU ARE BEYOND AMAZING!!! Mimi, you are by far the best Realtor, and I am so thankful I got to work with you again! You are beyond professional, and are the Number One expert in your profession!! Words can’t even begin to express my appreciation of you! Your hard work and dedication are beyond exceptional. You are not the average Realtor by any means. You really work hard for your clients and give 100% in all you do. Thank you for all that you do, and have done. You, Mimi, are beyond intelligent, and it has been such a pleasure working beside you again. I can’t thank you enough for your expertise, patience, knowledge, negotiation skills, thoroughness, humor, and going beyond exceptional customer service. I have to say . . . I’m going to miss our daily talks/texts as you have become a part of my daily life 🙂 I look forward to working more with you in the future as it has been an outstanding experience! You are the best there is! THANK YOU SO MUCH, MIMI!!!
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 owner knowledge or permission. Then roofing company slapped a $41,000 lien on 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 and I was a mess, depressed over it and dealing with some serious health issues that had me in/out of the hospital. It all seemed hopeless.
Until I found Mimi . . .
Did I mention she is not your average Realtor? She went to work to find a solution in an impossible situation. She is a genius at writing and marketing to boot, 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. I never got to meet Mimi in person. I hope to one day meet her, and also see my former beloved home restored to its glory. Miracles really do happen, especially if you have a good Realtor on your side. Thank you, Mimi Foster!
Mimi made my sale sooo 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 off 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 and she handled everything. For a fast, efficient, effortless sale I highly recommend Mimi.
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. To make a long story short, I highly recommend Mimi.
Mimi has been a gem to work with! Her level of expertise, her attention to detail, and her compassion and understanding while working with us was the best. Thank you!
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
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.
Armando and Imelda Joy
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!
Mimi is great to work with. Very knowledgeable of the Colorado Springs real estate market, professional, and responsive to all my inquiries. We closed within eight days of listing. Great with communication, as well a true pleasure.
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 whatsoever 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 that you were my lady to get the job done! I remember looking at my husband and saying, “I love her already, she is THE ONE!” We went to see many houses, but then we found the house of our dreams. I looked at you and said, “Mimi, I want this house!!!!” and you said “OK!”
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! I want to thank you SO very much for everything you have done for me. I would recommend you to ANYONE and EVERYONE!
We went through two other Realtors before you, and they always made me feel like it was just about the money. You have never ever made me feel that way, and I’m truly grateful that 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 can see and understand how you were voted Best Realtor in Colorado Springs for five years in a row. I don’t see ANYONE taking that from you anytime soon! Love ya!
Misty and Brandon Dunlap
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 hand holding 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!
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.
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!
Laura and Brian Wright
Nancy and I want to thank you for all your hard work in helping us sell our house in just two days with multiple offers at full asking price, and then helping us find the perfect home to downsize to. Everything worked out so perfectly and smoothly thanks to you. We are very grateful.
Jack and Nancy Boehm
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 had previously worked with almost every realtor that showed our home and was able to provide insight because of it. 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.
Seb and Jennifer Haroutunian
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 – I just wanted 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!
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.
Twelve years ago, Mimi Foster’s name was recommended to my family in our first home search. Twelve years later, she is still an active, caring person in our family’s lives. Mimi is a wonderful listener and really meets the needs of the Client she is involved with. In addition to being very smart in her field, Mimi is very ethical and honest. I trust no one else when it comes to helping our family with our transactions for our homes.
Eric and Ali Larson
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 I may have. Thank you, Mimi, you’ve been AWESOME!!
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 the rehab, even though they weren’t her clients. She is amazing and caring with everyone whose life she touches.
Aneissa Van Metre
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!
I recently purchased a home through Mimi Foster. I called her on a Sunday after seeing the house and toured the house on Monday. It fit me perfectly. Mimi provided the information I needed and helped me throughout the home buying process. As a first-time home Buyer, I had heard many stories of the problems of purchasing a house and closing the loan. I had none of these problems. In fact the whole process was completely problem-free for me. I could not have had a better experience. I wish all of my major purchases went this well. Thanks again for your assistance and help in buying my house.
Vincent E. Presley
We want to THANK both of you for all of your hard work. You both went above and beyond to get our house closed. We really appreciate everything you did. We will recommend your Company to all our friends, and if we have any future real estate needs, we will certainly call you. Thank you so much for such quality service!
Tracy and Rob Lessig
. . . we are so thrilled, and I am especially thrilled that you are the one selling it. My only regret is that I didn’t go with you in the first place. I really look forward to meeting you in person when we come back for a visit next year. You are the best, and you should be proud of it.
. . . with sincere appreciation and warmest thanks! You guys are amazing!!! I am so grateful for the miracles that came out of knowing you and having the opportunity to work with you!
I have worked with Mimi for 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. You won’t go wrong working with her. She is so kind and I love doing business with her.
Thank you for your professional help and personal interest in guiding us through the recent process of being ‘rescued’ from foreclosure. I realize the bad loan on the house gave a negative forecast, however, Mimi Foster took on the challenge with positive faith, and we appreciate that so much.
Mimi helped us buy and sell two homes in Colorado Springs, 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 business woman! Mimi helped us sell two Victorian homes for good profit. We’d work with her again and again.
We cannot appropriately emphasize the extent to which Ms. Foster is the absolute epitome of perfection as a Realtor! Had her counterparts in the purchase of our new home and sale of our old home even remotely approached the level of professionalism mixed with friendship that Mimi showed, we might not be as impressed with her. However, especially compared with the agent of the person that bought our house, Mimi came across as not only a genius, but a saint! I can honestly say that had Mimi not put forth the incredible effort that 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 that we never thought it possible to sell.
From the late Sunday night writing of the Contract on our new home, through a bidding war on Monday to win that Contract, to the many demanding, near-harassing phone calls from the agent of the buyer of our home, Mimi maintained her cool, smiling through it all, calming my frazzled nerves, giving me direction and encouragement through it all.
I am completely befuddled by real estate documents. Mimi’s knowledge and expertise never ceased to amaze me. She really knows her business! Her contacts, too, were exemplary. The Lending Broker, Title Company, and Inspector whose names she shared with us were also professional, friendly, and thorough. Every person she sent our way to help in this difficult process was, it would seem, the best in the business.
We would never, ever sell a house with anyone representing us but Mimi Foster. We would never, ever buy a house without the assistance of Mimi Foster. I wonder why anyone else in town is in business!

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.
Mimi is not only a terrific real estate agent, she is a great advisor and friend. We bought one house through her, listed our home 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. In fact, we simply trust Mimi to find the right house for us, since she knows our preferences and the local real estate so well. Every house she’s encouraged us to see has been an excellent fit — we just have to decide which to choose! 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.
We first used Mimi to sell our house that had been on the market for over six months with another agent. Less than one month later Mimi had it sold. Therefore, it was without hesitation that we called her when we learned we were moving back to Colorado Springs. Mimi has made herself 100% available to us during our home search. Her experience with older homes has been an added bonus. With all of her help we were able to find just the right home for our family.
Ted and Susie Snyder
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 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.
I highly recommend Mimi Foster as your Real Estate Agent. Mimi went out of her way, did more than an average Real Estate Agent would, basically held our hand and guided my wife and I throughout our FIRST TIME home buying process. She worked around OUR schedule to show us countless houses until my wife and I found the right house for us. She was very patient, understanding, client protective and thoughtful throughout this whole process. As first time home buyers, it would have been more stressful and we would not have received as good of a deal if it wasn’t for Mimi Foster and her contacts and resources. She is professional and puts her clients first. I will use her for any property that I may sell or buy in the future. Thanks, Mimi! You were gratefully appreciated!
Kirk and Mabel Stubbs
I have worked with Mimi for decades in many capacities. 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 for a variety of reasons. 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 impeccable character. She truly is someone I don’t hesitate to recommend to anyone buying or selling property.

Mimi is a true professional when it comes to knowing the real estate market. She is very creative, as well as an expert in her area of expertise. 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 is the epitome of professionalism and experience! Mimi’s true concern for her clients and their needs is the driving force by which she delivers her services. Mimi is the consummate Real Estate professional and truly is a standard by which we all should measure. Mimi loves her work and, more importantly, loves to serve those that she is working with and for. It is an honor to work with her and I am certain that it is a privilege to be her client!
Cordis Foster (no relation 🙂 )
As the local Victorian Home Specialist, Mimi has found a niche that brings both she and her clients great joy. She’s passionate about the Downtown Colorado Springs area and it shows! During the time I’ve come to know Mimi, she has distinguished herself as a compassionate, hard-working but fun-loving spirit who is truly thrilled at the prospect of finding your dream home. Mimi has a wonderful rapport with people, and her ability to connect with her clients makes her an exceptional choice when you’re searching for a real estate professional. I highly recommend her to anyone looking to buy or sell a home!
Mimi Foster has been voted the Best Realtor in Colorado Springs for years, and not without justification. Never have I met or worked with a more intelligent, creative, and experienced real estate person. 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, believing that both parties must win in a successful deal. This requires intelligent compromise on both sides, and a broker in the middle who gets it! If you’re in the market for real estate in the Colorado Springs area, I can recommend Mimi Foster without reservation!
Mimi is a well-respected and highly visible realtor in Downtown Colorado Springs with her unique branding. Her experience has helped her to close many home sales successfully. She is willing to share her expertise and encourage others, even those of us in other companies. Mimi is marvelous!
