Renata you and Irene have been a blessing to me and my family. I appreciate your hard work and efforts very much!

Scarlet Marie

You are so generous and kind! I received the beautiful bamboo cutting board and I can’t wait to use it! Working with you has been, by far, the best and easiest lending process ever!Thanks so much for the lovely housewarming gift!

Christine and Eddie W.

Renata White did a loan for my first-time homebuyers. It was seamless and closed within 30 days. Every week there was an update email and more communication as needed. Couldn’t be happier! Thank you, Renata.

Wendy G.

Renata did an excellent job with this loan and we even closed early. She was the easiest loan officer to get ahold of and answered the phone almost every time I called. Thanks for the great experience!

Clark H.

It was a pleasure to work with Renata White during my loan process. She is very knowledgeable and understood exactly what needed to be done to ensure a smooth process. She is very organized, thorough and professional and is such a kind-hearted soul. Those little things made a difference and I’m grateful for being able to put forth my trust in her. Thank you, Renata White, for your patience and understanding. You stand above and beyond the rest.

Christian and Shirley B.

Thank you so much for your help! Don’t know what I would do without you. Everyone has been saying that you have been awesome to work with.

Catie B., Community Manager at Lokal Homes

Thanks again for the excellent attention throughout the process on Numa Place and your thoughtful gifts. I couldn’t believe you actually drove out to the house to bring us gifts. NO ONE does that! I wish we could have had a glass of wine but as you saw we had the movers and the cable guy at the same time and I was a bit distracted. We finalized our selections with Lokal yesterday and they are breaking ground on the new house soon. We can’t wait. I told Morgan yesterday that your fantastic service will be a big part of their ability to sell the 2 bridges development. You truly go above and beyond. Besides thanking you, I also wanted to check with you on the sale of our loan. I got a letter from planet home loans and I wanted to check with you and make sure they are legit before I set up automatic payments to them. Thanks again.

Our experience with Colten Mortgage was hands down the best lender experience we have ever had. My wife and I purchased a townhouse in Castle Rock from the builder Lokal. Colten Mortgage is their lender partner. We were originally going to finance with one of the big bank lenders but there were some wonderful incentives to use Colten. We are so glad we decided to work with Colten. They were always available day or night to answer questions, we typically got responses almost immediately! You don’t get that kind of attention with the big Corporate lenders. They actually got all our closing paperwork ready early, which is another rare occurrence in today’s home buying process. The customer service experience was top notch and we had the smoothest quickest closing we have ever been part of.

Using a local lender can also give homebuyers an edge in the competitive Colorado real estate market. While we bought a new townhome, we heard from several realtors that using a local lender is something sellers like to see because is usually means less hiccups at closing. If you are buying an existing home, there’s a good chance you will go into a competitive bidding situation. Having Colten Mortgage on your side will most likely give you an edge against other buyers.

Thanks to everyone at Colten for a great experience!

We couldn’t be more thrilled with our new Jackson Creek Lokal townhome in Monument, and wanted to personally thank you for providing the loan application and approval process on such an exceptional product! Andrew Dort and his team were phenomenal in their communication with us from the beginning of our loan application in November, 2017, all the way through our closing on August 23, 2018. We were so fortunate to be able to secure the end lot on the far southwest corner of the community. The views are spectacular and breathtaking, to say the least. This is our retirement home, and we are so happy!!! 

Daniel M.

My experience working with Colten Mortgage was very good from day one, Brant was courteous and helpful and always took time to answer all my questions in depth. He never failed to return a call the same day if I needed to talk to him. Always a professional. Super nice.

Ilona P.

This company is fantastic. I had a great experience working with Corey Tressler. He made the process absolutely easy for me. He was down to earth but also very professional. He was always available, day and night to answer my many questions. Extremely knowledgeable, patient and easy to talk to. He explains everything thoroughly. I will definitely recommend this place

Claudia C.

Smooth transaction. Will do my next refi again with Colten Mortgage.

Amor F.

Very pleased with the level of service provided.


Brant and his team were very efficient and courteous. They had our paperwork finished in just a few days and we closed a little less than three weeks later. Awesome job!

Franklin M.

Fantastic from beginning to the end. We’ll definitely use you again in the future and will recommend to others.

Michael W.

Corey Tressler was incredibly helpful, knowledgeable and well spoken. His enthusiastic personality and patience made my process that much easier. I would most definitely recommend Corey to help with your process. One more plus: he speaks pretty decent Spanish!

Fabian O.

Mr Brant Phillips was a pleasure to work with. He communicated every step of the way and was extremely patient during my last home purchase, which ended up being a rather difficult process due to some tax complications. I have had both a refinance as well as a new home purchase with Mr Phillips and I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend him to a friend.

Joseph O.

I just wanted to say that Amy Reczek is an absolute angel; truly heaven sent.  I was introduced to her via my realtor Barry Overton & he assured me that she’s the best in the business & she most certainly is! Home buying and/or the steps to even start the home buying process is absolutely terrifying & I have to admit that there was a lot of trepidation on my end as I’ve not really had anyone thoroughly explain it to me the way that Amy did. She’s incredibly knowledgeable & has the tools to articulate what one needs to do in order to get the ball rolling in preparation for purchasing a home. I was truly enlightened with how effortless she’s made this entire process & I am more than confident that she will be able to set me up for success when I’m actively looking for a home with her by my side. Thank you so very much, from the bottom of my heart, for talking me off the ledge today. My cup most certainly is half full now.

Kellie D.

Amy is the best advisor and represents what’s good in the home buying process!

Kalen R.

Amy is the most knowledgeable and caring person I know in this industry.

Michael C.

Amy has the fantastic ability to truly connect with her clients! Her experience in the industry have and will continue to help those in the process of purchasing their home.

Joshua J.

As a first-time buyer, I was nervous about the process. I wasn’t even sure if I would qualify. But Ricardo explained everything to me simply and honestly. He worked with me and my realtor every step of the way and made me confident in my purchase. I couldn’t be more pleased with my decision to call Colten Mortgage.

Maria S.

What a pleasant experience. We had lots of questions and Ricardo answered everything we threw at him. Thank you! 

Jackie T.

Great service by Mr. Hernandez.

Ivan H.

I was amazed at the amount of effort my mortgage consultant Ricardo put in to help me get along the way.

Todd J.

Kacey helped get our VA Loan processed very quickly when we made an offer on our house in Colorado Springs, which was important in this crazy fast market. If we eventually buy another home, we will certainly go with Kacey again.

Kendle K.

Amazing Experience! My wife and I were introduced to Colten Mortgage, and more specifically Kacey Lacerte through a friend, and couldn’t be more thankful for the work she did in closing our home loan. 

We came to Kacey with a unique circumstance and a tight deadline to close in 20 days, and she delivered! Throughout the process, she kept us very informed of the challenges we did and would face in closing a loan on such a tight deadline. 

Closing on a home can be a very stressful experience, but Kacey and Colten Mortgage eliminated the stress of obtaining financing and allowed us to focus on the rest of the home buying concerns. 

We couldn’t be more thankful for Kacey and the rest of her team as they made our closing very enjoyable. We would highly recommend her to any friend or family member.

Joe & Lindsay J.

My husband and I feel like we hit the jackpot with Kacey!

As first-time home buyers in a time crunch, we felt absolutely overwhelmed. We had no idea where to start and foolishly went straight to a big bank lender. While we were waiting to hear back from the big bank lender, our realtor, Brian Anzur, suggested we call Kacey and boy are we glad we did!

The first time we called Kacey, she was on vacation, yet she worked to get pre-approved right away. Next, she offered to meet us face to face to go over paperwork and answer any questions we had. Being newly married, we don’t have much time off so she was kind enough to drive all the way down to us after work hours. We met for 2hrs. She explained what we could expect with this process, went over all the paperwork, and she answered every single question we had in great detail. She was open and honest.

Kacey kept us in the loop every single step of the way. She was incredibly prompt and responsive. Every single email or phone call was returned within the day and usually within the hour. Because of Kacey’s great work, we were able to close on our house in just 24 day! She could have had it done sooner if we needed it. She was even sweet enough to give us a housewarming gift with a handwritten card at closing. I cannot sing Kacey’s praises enough and would ABSOLUTELY recommend her.

Melanie W.

Colten Mortgage was great, everyone I dealt with was professional and very pleasant to work with. We didn’t have to jump through hoops, the closing was complete in 1 hour! I will definitely refer Colten Mortgage to anyone that is looking to buy. Thank you again!

Kerri W.

Thank you for all of your help in getting my house done Andrew.  You were awesome to work with and made the process as easy and seamless as I think it could be. I’m happy to say I didn’t have a lender horror story like some of the transactions I’ve managed!  You rock man.

Zach T.

Friendly, knowledgeable staff that got us a great rate and walked us through the whole process in a very transparent way. Highly recommended.

Jamie S.

I recently closed on my first home with Colten. Andrew Dort and his team are excellent.
Andrew was always available to answer my questions, no matter how simple or small,
and provided A+ guidance through the process. The entire transaction from application
to underwriting to closing was easy and painless. I would definitely recommend Colten
to my family and friends.

Zach T.

“Kacey and Sonja were amazing. Kacey kept up on everything while we were in escrow on our new home. Great communication throughout! She contacted us about locking in our rate which was great because rates later went up. She took care of all the little details so we didn’t have to worry even though we are in Colorado Springs and she’s castle rock area. Sonja handled a lot of behind the scenes stuff too. They both joined us at the closing table and it was a pleasure working with them. Kacey even reduced some of their fees to get us where we wanted to be. So glad we went with them instead of the builders preferred lender like my son did. Highly recommend Colten mortgage and Kacey Lacerte and Sonja too!” 

Debbie R.

“We just purchased a brand new home through Colten Mortgage, and all I have to say is the entire process was AMAZING and STRESS-FREE. Andrew Dort answered all of my questions (even the ones that might have been kind of silly) and made sure that I understood all of my loan options and the benefits and drawbacks of each. I also never had to worry about what documents I needed to provide at what time, because Andrew and team were on top of things through the entire process. You are in good hands with this company! I would definitely use them again in the future if the opportunity arises, especially if Andrew is still around. Thank you Colten Mortgage!­” – Joshua Janoski

Joshua J.

“Thank you Colten Mortgage! Andrew and Sonya were amazing to work with! I was able to go from pre-approval to closing without any glitches! Such a smooth process! The most amazing piece of working with Andrew and Sonya was when placing a phone call. My phone calls were always answered!! Thanks again!” – Chris McLeod
