Mary truly made our buying process so easy and simple. Such a caring and honest individual and our move from state to state (while all being virtual) was very smooth, she went above and beyond and toured probably 20 homes for us all over FaceTime, and was punctual happy to every time! She was so friendly and we will definitely be referring her and her team to our friends and family that move to the area. The whole Vanwiren group were truly some of the most caring and informative people! I cannot recommend enough.


Great and humble team. Easy to work with and very responsive to all questions/concerns. Active duty military selling home from out of state- handled with ease. Highly recommend Rick and team!


Mary Barley is an amazing woman. She us very prompted answering, returning phone calls or text messages. Our experience with the while Remax team was fantastic. We were given lots of helpful ideas before we put our house on the market. We also used Mary to find us our new home. She was honest with details about the homes she showed us. She worked around our schedule to see houses we wanted to look at. I couldn’t ha e asked for a better Realtor than Mary Barley. I would highly recommend her to anyone looking to buy or sell a home.


Very personable and easy to work with. She has great experience with the market for both buying and selling homes. Was willing to go above and beyond to get us into a home that we both loved and could afford. An overall amazing realtor to have on your side for any part of the home buying or selling process.


Mary is an excellent agent. She goes above and beyond for her clients. She makes sure to find answers to all questions you may have. Never rushed me through a property and let me really get a feel for the houses to see if they would fit for me. Very professional but friendly at the same time 🙂


Rick has helped us with 2 house purchases and 3 house sales in Colorado Springs over 23 years. I give him the highest possible ratings on all that is involved in the residential real estate process and transactions. In addition to his knowledge, expertise, and great planning, he’s just plain fun to work with! As an example, Rick’s forethought to prepare with septic inspection prior to listing (certification is valid with El Paso county for something like 6 months) meant that we could accept a cash offer with a quick closing date. He’s also not at all pushy, but rather happy to answer questions in the beginning and move at our pace. Good work, Rick!


Mary was such a delight to work with and I would highly recommend her. I was living in MT and trying to purchase a townhome in Colorado Springs and first time I looked at homes virtually. I have a son in Colorado Springs and she coordinated efforts with him, they took me on virtual tours and she  was in constant communication. Very professional, she listens to your concerns, your questions and she gets the answers. Mary is so genuine and honest and you know exactly what is going on. She knows the area, she has an incredible network to get answers from if she doesn’t know. Mary definitely gets a 5 star rating from me and I have bought and sold 4 homes. Mary absolutely ROCKS!


Rick has helped my husband and I buy several houses – both for our personal residence and for investments. He and his team are our first choice when it comes to Realtors in the Colorado Springs area because of his extensive knowledge and experience. His team is knowledgeable, friendly, very well-organized and such a pleasure to work with. We highly recommend them!

Beth H

Rick was amazing. Finding a house in the current market, especially with my specifications is really difficult. I can’t tell you how many houses we saw, probably well over 40 over 4 a month span. Rick found me my home and it is exactly what I was looking for and I got it without the crazy bidding war since we were able to be patient. He got me a great deal and fought for my best interest. I would highly, highly recommend Rick. He knows what he is doing.

Rebekah Smith

Rick was awesome and super patient with us while we searched for our perfect first house. He worked with our busy schedules, often working evenings after our work to help fit our schedule as well so that we wouldn’t miss out on any opportunities. He works hard to serve his clients and makes sure they have the best home buying experience possible! His professionalism and knowledge is first class in all aspects! Highly recommended!

Lydia Gardner

Rick Van Wieren was incredibly helpful when I looked for my first home in Colorado Springs. So, when I was ready to move to a larger home, I called on Rick again to sell the first home and to help me find my dream home. When I relocated to Texas, Rick helped me sell my second home! I’m happy to say that I still call him a friend today. If your Colorado bound, Rick Van Wieren is your guy!

Kerry Park

Rick Van Wieren and his team were exceptional. Their professionalism, timeliness, and attention to detail were impeccable. From start to finish, he made to process seamless and stress free. Rick’s assistant Megan Riley was always available to answer questions and she went above and beyond to fulfill our every need. The photographer was amazing and made our house look exceptional. I would highly recommend this team and wish they could help us find a house in Texas.

John Hayes

Rick was very patient and very knowledgeable. I was a first time home buyer while my husband was deployed so I had no idea what to do or where to start. He made the entire process pain free and easy. He never made me feel what I wanted was out of reach or unrealistic. Whenever I wanted to see a  house, he made it happen as quickly as possible. We love our house, and we love Rick! We will always use him for future real estate needs and recommend him to anyone.


It is not often that I experience excellent customer service, but I have to say that Mary Barkley is the best real estate agent I have ever experienced in my more than 8 moves. Megan Riley was also excellent in her support and always followed up quickly on any of my questions, providing important guidance on the process along the way. I am a picky buyer and from day one, I could tell Mary cared deeply about me as her customer. As an out-of-state buyer, the Van Wieren Team found the perfect home for me in record time in one of the most challenging markets I have ever experienced as a buyer. Mary went above and beyond to ensure I was supported throughout the process. The communication from both Mary and Megan was outstanding and their advocacy made a challenging, out-of-state move much easier. I am so grateful to the entire Van Wieren team and appreciated Rick’s videos along the way. The way this team works together makes for a winning combination. I would use this team again in a heartbeat. Finally, thank you, Mary, for continuing to support me even after the closing! You are a professional and gifted real estate agent.

Vickie Dolis

We just sold our home with Rick and the VanWieren team. We’ve used Rick in the past and that’s why we keep coming back. He’s thorough, fast, responsive and covers all the bases. Megan was also extremely helpful and responsive. We never have to worry about everything getting done when working with Rick. He has both found and sold houses for us and I would highly recommend the VanWieren team if you are looking for or selling your home!!
