I would also like to say special thanks for all your effort with Maple. Without your help, I am sure things could have definitely been worse. I appreciate your understanding of my situation and making the extra effort to ease my stress. Your efforts were one of the good things in this whole mess, and I am indebted to you.

I have now been using Cornerstone for just over one year and I am very pleased with the service that everyone provides. Lance Kohler was recommended to me as a property agent from a friend that I worked with. Lance made the entire process of placing my house up for rent hassle free. He visited the property, took pictures, provided a rental estimate that was actually a bit higher than I expected, and then walked me through the contract process. Every time I’ve had any question, Lance has immediately responded with his ideas on what would be best for moving forward and making my property a better value to myself and to the tenants. I fully trust Lance and every other member of the Cornerstone Team to help me make the best decisions for my property.

Don Smith


Thanks Jeb for all your work on this. You are very good at your job.

Lucas



We moved into a Cornerstone property two years ago and right away, I was impressed with your customer service, promptness, and dedication to caring for our property.  The house was clean and 100% ready for us to move in.

Lance Kohler has been our manager the entire time we’ve been with Cornerstone and he has more than done his job every time I have called.  He calls back the same day, returns e-mails promptly, and has fixed any problem we have had within 24 hours.  Lance is always polite and is very easy to work with.  I am so thankful for his service to us.

Every time I have called the office, I have been treated kindly, respectfully, and have been attended to thoroughly.  When I call, I have no doubt that any issue I have will be resolved as quickly as humanly possible.

If we were staying in Colorado Springs, we would be lifetime clients of Cornerstone, but sadly, work is transferring us out of the area.  Even though we have two months left on our lease, Lance has already shown our house many times in an attempt to have another family move in right away.  He has been working very hard to help us in this time of transition.  Showings can be difficult, but Lance has done everything in his power to make the process easy for us.

I can’t thank everyone at Cornerstone enough for your service, kindness, and help.  I have been recommending your business to everyone I know and hope that this letter will encourage more business for you.

Most sincerely,

Mary Smith



I live in Boulder and the Cornerstone team manages my rental in Colorado Springs. At first I was leery of this long distance relationship, but Scott and Saul have made this extremely simple for me. I rarely have to drive down there; they take care of everything for me in a professional, courteous, and efficient manner. All this for a reasonable fee. With the dynamic rental market there, they do a great job getting the place re-leased with little to no vacant months. Jeb Brewster recently did an awesome job getting the house leased at a better rate with no space between renters (something I always worry about in the winter). The Cornerstone team has my full confidence, and I would recommend them to anyone who wants to remove the headaches of managing rental properties.

Cornerstone was the only property management company that was recommended to us by a trustworthy source. We decided to meet with them and see for ourselves; we are thankful we did! Our house was on the market for less than a month during the off-season for rentals; we moved out and three days later good tenants moved in to the house. The process was easy, straightforward, and professional. The great part is they do all the legwork, multiple background checks, and exhaustive research to make sure you get good tenants and you are included in the selection process every step of the way. Thanks Cornerstone and keep up the excellent work!

I would like to acknowledge Saul Levy with the Cornerstone team. I tried to manage my own property for several years by myself. It became very frustrating, especially from out of state. I had tenants in my property that did not have any financial issues, however they just neglected to pay the rent, and were continually late. Saul was referred to me from a friend. He quickly took control of the lease and tenants. They paid on time for the next five months. Then, same scenario, no rent. Saul went through all the steps, finally ended up as a judgment against them. Saul was persistent, calling and emailing the tenants, as to inform them as there upcoming eviction. Saul stood firm with the tenants advising them to move, they tried to negotiate the past due rent and wanted to stay in the home. I was prepared to just pay the mortgage, and get them out, Saul advised them they could stay if they prepare the rest of the lease. Well that evening he went to the home, and they gave him a cashiers check for the balance of the lease plus past 2 months rent, late fees and attorney fees , (which is well over 15k ) !

This also allowed him to see the home and take pictures. Everything turned out better than I could have ever imagined. I couldn’t have done this without him! Thank you, Saul!

Maxine



Its a shock alright. Shocking how little it cost. Thanks for all the help. If you can get 1150 for it, go for it!

Scott Lauckner



Wow !! I’m impressed. Orren was awesome. Thanks for getting this taken care of so fast.

Mike Miller


Scott Gray had spoken to the agents at Sellstate a while back and I know several agents who use your company and highly recommend Cornerstone.  I’m happy to have someone reputable to refer people to!

Fred got out on Saturday and fixed our shower problem. he did a great job!  Thanks a lot.

property management testimonial from US Army officerMy name is Ross Mitchell and my property was 7095 Ancestra Dr, Fountain Colorado. Scott Gray was my neighbor and a very great friend. My house had been on the market for two years with Acquire Homes and had very little activity. I turned my house over to Scott and Bernie from Cornerstone Realty in Jan of 2012 and I almost immediately had results.

Cornerstone placed a renter in there till the sale and that was a good feeling to know someone was in there and taking care of the property rather than letting it go to garbage such as had happened with the other realtor. I want to say that Bernie McDonald was always there for me via phone to answer all my questions and to just listen to me complain about Bank of America and how they conduct business as well as treating the little guy. Bernie accepted phone calls from me at all times of the day and on weekends when I had concerns with my property, He is always polite, respectful and very helpful. Bernie walked me through all the paper work steps that were needed to progress with the short sale and finally represented us on the closing date, I honestly could keep praising him for all his hard work.

So with that said, thank you to all the Cornerstone staff for everything they did for my wife and I. We thank you and appreciate all of you.

Ross Mitchell


Just wanted to send a quick thank you for sending someone our way to take care of the door today. Your staff was great, and he fixed it in about 5 minutes! Thank you!

Farrah



I wanted to thank Saul and the team for keeping our property looking good and well taken care of. We live in California but recently came back to CO to see friends. While my husband was there he drove by our house to see how it was doing. The tenants had no idea he was coming by. He took photos and both the house and yard looked beautiful. The garage happened to be open and it was neat and tidy. It was so nice to see that our family home was being so well cared for. Thank you for your part in that. And thank you for finding a tenant who would keep it up.

Dawn Murray



Myself and my husband have been extremely happy with Scott Gray and Cornerstone Property Management. We were displaced as a result of the Waldo Canyon Fire and Scott immediately contacted us to see how he could help. We struggled to find a rental home that would work for us and our pets while our home is being rebuilt. As soon as we let Scott know we were struggling with housing he came up with a great home for us to settle in to during the rebuild process. In addition, with not having rented in many years, Scott was great with working with the property owners to get some needed items repaired and/or replaced so that we could settle in comfortably. This has been a great relief to us during this most stressful time.

Mike and Diane Miller



 I wanted to put in a mention for Cornerstone and specifically Saul Levy.  Honestly, I cannot say enough good.  We have a total of six rentals into service with Cornerstone’s help.  Saul Levy is top notch.  Even before we have signed a contract, he has went immediately to work to find someone who wants to rent.  Usually a company says they will respond within 24 hours.  Saul responds within an hour most of the time.  His service and help is nothing short of outstanding.  His service has been professional, immediate and backed with results.  Working with him helps an investor move forward with much less stress and time spent putting an investment into service.  He makes it his mission to give immediate personalized attention.  Cornerstone will continue to be the company we go to and Saul will always be the person asked for.

Scott R. Lauckner



I wanted to let you know how well Lance Kohler helped me with renting of my house. He has been very responsive to my emails, calls, and texts in status and answering questions. On our initial visit he walked around the property and provided comps on surrounding properties and talked about what rent payment I might be able to get for the property. He walked me through the contract and made sure to answer any questions I had on the form, process, etc… He has worked very hard to obtain a tenant in a very quick time, almost too quickly since I wasn’t even moved out of the house yet :). He provided all of the forms and processes I needed as well as walked me through the insurance items I needed to take care of with my agent to move the house to a rental status.

I really can’t say enough about Lance. He has made this entire process so smooth and easy to do with the stress of moving and all of the items that go along with that. He has gone over the top with his service and in making sure the house is ready for the tenants to move in on the date they wanted it. Again, it was a very quick turnaround since I moved out just three days prior to them moving in and since I am out of state he did a lot to help me with this transition.

You have a really great asset there with Lance. I am very happy to have him as my property manager and contact for my rental contract. He has always been very professional and took extra time to make sure I was doing well with this whole process. Please provide him with my thanks and appreciation with this process.

property manager testimonial from Platinum Group

I called Cornerstone because of a strong testimonial from Mike Kunce, who is a good friend of mine, they took good care of my client and I continue to include them as a preferred property manager.

Melissa, Fanelli Team



I have had a great experience working with Cornerstone Management. Scott runs a very professional organization and employs quality, hardworking people to lease and manage properties. One of these employees, Saul Levy, has worked closely on my properties. Saul is a young guy with a lot of energy and a passion for excelling on management of real estate. While many younger guys overlook the details in transactions Saul has no propensity for this type of behavior. He has always been thorough in his dealings with my properties which is rather rare for someone of his age. I completely trust his management of my properties and recommend him for anyone wanting first rate management.

Justin Ersch



I have always managed my own rentals. I never felt comfortable allowing someone else to manage my properties. After all, they are my properties and I knew how to manage them better than anyone else. Well, this all changed for me this year. I found the demands of my job and family were not allowing me to focus on my rental properties. Months would go by before I would advertise for tenants and I was not sufficiently screening applicants. I needed help but I was skeptical about property managers.

I started my search by asking for recommendation from other local real estate investors. I contacted four property managers. Two of them never called back. Really? Talk about a red flag. If they would not contact me offering new business how well would they take care of my tenets and property? The third property manager seemed to charge for every item. After three conversations with them I still could not tell you how much they were going to charge me from month to month. Cornerstone was the exception. I am so happy I found them.

Cornerstone took my call immediately. They quoted a very reasonable and clear upfront cost with no hidden fees. They made me feel like a customer and acted like they wanted me as a customer. My main contact at Cornerstone is Saul Levy. Saul was available, on my time schedule, to meet me at one of my properties. I have multiple properties but I thought I would just start with one to determine how they would perform. Saul made me feel comfortable and I felt I could trust him and Cornerstone to manage my property. He made the contract process easy and was always available by phone when I had questions about the contract.

After working with Cornerstone for some time now I can’t believe I ever wanted to be my own property manager. Everyone at Cornerstone has been great and very customer oriented. I now have all my properties managed by Cornerstone. Saul stays in touch with me on a regular basis without prompting from me. I also know I can call Saul anytime and he is always available – not sure how he does that. Cornerstone has kept my properties rented at higher amounts than I ever did. I highly recommend Saul and Cornerstone and I am sure we will have a long-term, mutually beneficial relationship.

property manager US Air Force officer testimonialAfter years of managing my two rental properties myself, I accepted a military assignment in Las Vegas and it became increasingly difficult to keep up with all of the responsibilities of property management. Both properties were being vacated at the same time and I had to get help. Mr. Saul Levy, of the Cornerstone Retail Team, got them both houses rented within 30 days and was extremely professional and efficient. Not only did he get new tenants in quickly, but was able to increase the rent and secure long-term lease agreements. He kept me completely informed during the process and was always available to answer any of my questions. I have complete trust in his abilities and am very happy I turned my properties over to Cornerstone and Saul. I highly recommend the Cornerstone Retail Team and Mr. Saul Levy for anyone’s property management needs.

Brent Caldwell, Lt Col, USAFR




property management testimonial from US Army officerThe Cornerstone Management Team has truly been a blessing to my wife and I.  Being in the military we are unable to watch over our property on a regular basis so enlisting the help of Cornerstone was crucial.  They are true professionals.  There isn’t a day that goes by that I cannot reach them by phone or email.  There is not a job too small for them and their support to military families is amazing.

Douglas Bogdanowitz, Captain US Army – USMA Graduate



I would just like to say that since Cornerstone’s property managers took over the property management of Drakestone Townhomes from Fidelity Reality it has been much better. Before if something was broken or needed done around the apartment, it was like pulling teeth to get someone from Fidelity to take action. Scott, however, not only is very quick to get done what is needed, but he also has been doing many very needed improvements to the property. In addition, Scott always has the time to talk with anyone here in the complex and has, on a number of occasions, stopped by to pick up the rent in person as to save me the time of going to the office to drop it off. He has become the best property manager I have ever had and look forward to working with him for some time to come.

James Anderson


I am very pleased that I called Cornerstone Retail to manage my apartment building. This was a new venture for me, and their experience and advice was extremely helpful in getting the apartment ready for occupancy, finding tenants and handling the rental contracts, and taking care of the myriad details of maintenance and management. I have been very impressed with the high level of service and commitment I have received, especially since my project is probably one of their smallest accounts. I would definitely recommend Cornerstone Retail as a property management team.

Thanks for keeping me in the loop with this. I appreciate the good work that your company is doing for me. I also appreciate the insight regarding how to handle the eviction while still giving the tenant the opportunity to catch up. Great knowledge to have!

Louis N. Batides, PMP



McDonald’s has been working with Scott Gray and Cornerstone Retail Group LLC for approximately seven years. Scott has proven to be a great broker for McDonald’s and has definitely added to our success in the Colorado Springs market. He is very knowledgeable about the Colorado Springs and Pueblo markets and knows many of the real estate professionals in the area. Scott has a good reputation in a business where reputation and relationships are key to getting deals done.

Victoria M. Seward Area Real Estate Manager Rocky Mountain Region



has been a pleasurable experience to work with Scott and Cornerstone Retail Team LLC. He drove me to the areas in Colorado Springs and the surrounding area I wanted to see and told him about prior to coming to the area. Scott knows his market well. When I indicated an area or location that would not work for Autozone, he understood and did not try to continue to push the area on me afterwards. He was very understanding about our particular needs and has followed through promptly on commitments/information we have needed. Scott has kept landlords informed of our interest in their properties and has kept us up to date and informed as well. Scott is always timely and responsive and nothing sits out that needs his attention. My experience with Scott Gray and the Cornerstone Retail Team has been and still is a good experience.

Frank Ludwig Real Estate Development Manager, AutoZone



Scott is a very creative thinking and developer of ideas. In addition, his extensive knowledge of product is an asset for clients because he not only knows, for example, where particular businesses are located; he constantly tracks properties that are or will become available. Mr. Gray has considerable retail and business experience in its own right, so he is able to understand and empathize with client requirements and concerns. Scott is very energetic, persistent and enthusiastic. I have worked with him in transactions involving land development and other lengthy processes to reach settlement, and find that he consistently monitors progress to ensure everything is in place to close as planned.

Sara Martin, LandAmerica Commercial Services



When asked about Scott Gray, I describe him as an honest, reliable, and customer oriented person. I have worked with Scott for a number of years and throughout those years, I only have good things to say about him as a person and businessman.

Karl Willock Nor’wood Commercial Development



…Scott and has group have done an outstanding job.The are honest, communicative and add the “extra” effort, often necessary, to see all parties end up in a “win-win” situation. I would recommend Scott and his firm to anyone without hesitation.

Fred Vietch, Nor’wood Commercial Development



From the creation of the development plan through all the sit tours, our team has alway left the meetings impressed with your planning and attention to detail. Your local knowledge of the market and other realtor’s development plans has made quite an impression on our real estate team. Afer working with you in Colorado we now hold the other real estate professionals across the country to a higher standard. I also want to thank you for patience as we try to put the development plan into action. It has taken us longer than we planned to move ahead with our plan but you and your staff have been great in allowing us the time we need before we move head. Your approach to create a long term relationship is greatly appreciated.

David Baumeister, UPS Store




property manager US Air Force officer testimonialIt is refreshing to know that there is a company, more specifically, Cornerstone Retail Group, that is devoted to excellent customer service and that understands the challenges unique to the military family. Each time I reached out to your team, the level of support and the timely response far exceeded my expectations. You went above and beyond to ensure my needs were met….this is most amazing to me as you placed my needs above those of the company. I sincerely appreciate how grateful you are to the men and women and the family members of those who serve the Nation’s Armed Forces. I am so very pleased with your service and I will recommend your business to others. Don’t change a thing…you got it right.

I have the privilege of being the Banker for C. Scott Gray and Cornerstone Retail Team LLC. I have served in this capacity for the last 7 years. Scott Gray is an upstanding member of our business community. He handles his business endeavors with utmost professionalism, integrity and personal attention. In the years that I have known Scott, I have witnessed his creativity, tenacity, and willingness to roll up his sleeves and do whatever needs to be done to achieve success. His integrity and authenticity are traits that are refreshing to find in the business community today. It is my pleasure to highly recommend and endorse Scott Gray and Cornerstone Retail Team LLC.

Lisa A. Rutherford, CTP Sr. Vice President Cash Management Manager



Mr. Gray along with his staff were very attentive to our needs, our interests and our concerns. He, also, was very insightful contributing information that we had not considered but assisted us with making our ultimate selection. Scott was always available by phone and was the most efficient of any agent I have encountered, returning calls and addressing concerns in a timely and forthright fashion. Finally, comparing Scott with the other agents revealed a sense of honesty and duty not previously witnessed by this individual. He, Scott, works for his clients and carries through with negotiations on behalf of his customer from the start of negotiations to the completion. For us, he was also instrumental in the build out of our space, suggesting contractors and things to consider when proceeding with such a venture. As a physician, Mr. Gray walked me through the process, negotiated on our behalf and ensured that we were protected from the initiation of the lease and even ensuring a fair price to us upon renegotiating the lease should we choose to do this year done the road. Mr. Gray is an honest, hardworking agent that believes in what he does and reflects honesty and sincerity unlike most agents.

Steven M. Benecke, M.D.



We were so impressed with Scott’s market knowledge and presence that he was selected to exclusively represent us in Southern Colorado. Scott has been a reliable steward of Dollar Tree’s intrests and has continued to add new technology to the process. In the 3 years that I have personally worked with Scott, he has always responded quickly and afirrimatively to requests for information and data. He does this without regard or question for reward. Scott is an integral part of our process and success and I am proud to count him among the Dollar Tree family.

Thomas F. Butt, Senior Real Estate Manager, Dollar Tree
