I have helped hundreds of nice people buy and sell real estate in and around Boulder County. Here are a few of their comments about me.
“My wife and I both come from real estate families. We know a lot of realtors. When we decided to pursue the goal of finding our “dream forever home” there was only one name…Neil Kearney. Neil welcomed the challenge and exceeded every expectation we had with our complex scenario and extreme selectivity. We had to sell and buy in arguably one of the toughest real estate markets Boulder County has seen due to incredibly low inventory levels. Whether it was providing high-level statistical and economic rationale, logistical insight, negotiating acumen, encouragement, or just a quick wit, Neil took care of us like a Hall of Famer. Our bucket list home is now ours through Neil’s extraordinary professionalism!”
– Dirk and Anna Walker
“We moved to Boulder from New York in June, 2015 and rented a couple of great properties while searching for the Colorado house of our dreams. We met Neil and knew, immediately that he would be the right person to help us deal with the very challenging market. His lengthy experience gave us the confidence that he would be aware of all the possibilities and early awareness of what was coming on the market. He showed us many different types of homes which helped us gain clarity about what we wanted. His patience with us changing our wishes from type of house to how much work we were willing to do to how much we were willing to spend to location made the process easy and educational. We never felt that he was pushing a sale. As busy as he was, he always managed to make himself available. Beyond these important qualities, he gave us great guidance with his opinions on how we might change the houses we were viewing. He was honest about what might work and those changes that would be hard to pull off. When we decided on the house we finally chose we felt that he was more of a friend in the way he approved of our selection. Buying a house in a new part of the country is never easy but Neil made it a seamless enjoyable experience. We recommend Neil unequivocally and if we decide to look again in the future, he will be the only one we will call on.” – Bob and Jo Ann Litwin
“We just wanted to take a few moments to thank you so much for all your tremendous help in the recent sale of our home! From our very first contact to the very last, it was such a pleasure to work with you!
As you know, ours was a “long distance relationship” (plus a tenant!) and thus there were some added complexities; however, you managed to keep the process on track for us and worked so hard to streamline everything as much as possible. In addition, your extraordinary marketing tools (the custom website of our home, the ads, flyers, etc.) brought many qualified people to our house, and most importantly, a buyer in a short period of time.
Once we were under contract and hit some of the typical snags, you were there every step of the way to guide us in our decision making and offer suggestions and advice. You went the extra mile to help us out with the things that we couldn’t handle personally because we were on the other side of the country, such as working with our roofing contractor to get some repairs done. At other times it was just a matter of “holding our hands” and we appreciate the support! Thank you!
You can be sure we will recommend you to our friends/family in the Boulder area whenever we hear of a real estate need. In fact, we have already! Please know that we do sincerely appreciate ALL your hard work and wish you much continued success both in your business and personally!”
Mark and Lisa Wilson
“Though we find it hard to express how much we appreciate and value Neil Kearney’s professional, ethical, kind and extremely effective representation of our home, it was not difficult for Neil to describe and represent our home in a way that was extraordinary.
From the moment we met Neil, we knew we had found the realtor who was looking out for our interests and advocating a sales plan that would ensure the most for our investment. Neil took extraordinary, professional photographs of our home, and his images and words in a beautiful brochure and amazing website created for our home reflected his passion for his job and for representing his clients in a way that is unsurpassed.
You could not hope to find a more experienced, more professional realtor to get the absolute best value out of your property – but the bonus is that you will undoubtedly find a friend. Our sale and purchase experience were benefited by his calm good humor and his expert eye – pointing out the problematic stucco, or the vacant lot across the street zoned for commercial development. Neil is extraordinary at his profession – skilled, calm and phenomenal – our recommendation is without reservation, and WITH great enthusiasm.”

“We could not have a better agent than Neil Kearney. He was very patient, answering all our questions and addressing all our concerns. He provided all the support we needed, as we are living out of the state by the time we decided to put the house in the market. Something very important: The communication was always very good. We strongly recommend Neil to prospective buyers and sellers. The best!” Guillermo Solano-Flores and Maria Ruiz-Primo
“Neil was great to work with! He has a comprehensive knowledge of the market, and was committed to our home search with patience and enthusiasm during a difficult buying process. I highly recommend Neil!” Dave and Ann Strand
“Neil did a great job helping us find and purchase our new home. He was always quick to respond, and not only guided us through the process but made it really easy. Thanks Neil!” Jason Merryman and Chrissie Graham
“If you’re looking for someone who knows the Boulder market inside and out, Neil is the realtor you want. Honest, reliable, Neil was always available to answer questions or arrange a last minute showings. We can’t recommend him enough.” Gabi Kioupakis
“Neil is a fantastic realtor. I have used his family business for several real estate transactions over the years and have always been impressed with his professionalism, competence, and diligence. He was always available to answer questions and he explained the nuances of selling property in today’s market extremely patiently! I recommend him to anyone looking to buy or sell. Thanks Neil!”- Jerri Miller
“We worked with Neil Kearney for the sale of our Gunbarrel home during our relocation out of state and were extremely happy with him! He provided a comprehensive market analysis in a short time so we could price our home competitively. His marketing of the house drove traffic to our home and led to multiple offers in a short time, allowing us to achieve our target price for the sale of the house. Neil’s personal touch and communications while we were out of the state were a great comfort to us during our busy relocation. He took care of all of our worries and kept us informed during every step of the sale of the house. We highly recommend Neil for your agent!”
Jim and Anna McClatchey
“In selling my home I was searching for a realtor that had plenty of experience in pricing and selling properties, is familiar with my neighborhood and surrounding area, has a friendly demeanor. Above those qualities, the single most important thing to me was being confident that my realtor would know how to price a house right without listing it for too less or too much. A friend had recommended Neil Kearney to me, as he had told me that his experience with Neil had surpassed his expectations. I took my friend’s recommendation and Neil Kearney personified each of those qualities I was looking for in a realtor very well. Neil did his homework and helped me price the house right. Three days later I was under contract. From the first handshake to the closing of the sale, Neil made my home selling experience a pleasant one.”
“To whom it may concern,
We would like to recommend Neil Kearney as your real-estate agent. In all of our dealings with Neil, he was always professional in both appearance and manner, while at the same time being very understanding and helpful regarding any concerns or issues we had.
Neil worked with us in selling our house in Erie, CO in the Fall of 2013. Neil worked with us in “staging” our house and then created an excellent photo layout which certainly helped to market it. During the “showings” timeframe, Neil kept us fully informed about prospective buyers and feedback from their initial walk-throughs. When the actual sale happened, Neil provided invaluable assistance in helping us work through a reasonably detailed and complex negotiation process with what ultimately became the buyers. After the contract was completed, Neil kept us fully informed about each of the steps leading up to the final closing.
Maryann and I would strongly recommend Neil to you for either buying or selling a house.
Chuck and Maryann Schafer”
“To Whom it May Concern,
After owning a house in Martin Acres for ten years, it was time to sell. We did our own research on the housing market and then met with Neil, who was introduced to us through a mutual friend, in order to list the house. His presentation was clear and concise. The house went on the market and we had immediate interest. Then the floods of 2013 came! Neil took the initiative to inspect the house and kept us up-dated with the conditions. We were lucky and had little damage. The house sold within three weeks of listing. The buyer had difficulties getting his loan approved, and again Neil handled all communications with ease.
Originally I had grand ideas of selling by owner. I now see that would have been a disaster. Neil represented our interests with a professional manner not often seen.
John M. Garvey”
“Neil Kearney is a great realtor and we highly recommend him! Neil’s knowledge, skill and personal qualities make him a highly successful realtor which made our real estate transaction smooth and enjoyable.
Neil recently helped us purchase a home in Broomfield. He is very knowledgeable about real estate in Boulder County, Longmont, Broomfield and other neighboring areas. We looked at houses in all of these areas and his manner of quiet, patient, competent service made it a smooth process to find the right house. As individuals returning to the Boulder area from out of state, it took us a while to determine the right location at the right price for us. We also were unsure about the type of housing we wanted and thought we wanted to downsize. After looking at smaller properties, we realized that we wanted a home that was similar in size to the one we had most recently. Using his strong knowledge of the communities and how they related to our housing needs and desires, he guided us through the process of finding the house that suits us perfectly. His provision of the on-line search capability was also very helpful. In addition, he has a ready sense of humor and it is fun to work with him.
Neil quickly and efficiently made our offer for the house. He monitored all of the steps of the purchase with ease including recommending potential inspectors and working with the title company. It made it very simple for us. It was a pleasure to work with Neil and if the opportunity arises, we would anticipate using his services in the future.”

“We wanted to say thank you for your work on our behalf. Having selected your work from 1,200 miles away, we made our best educated guess about who would help us find the most value for our money. A space we could create a home. You not only delivered on all of our expectations, but you added value at each step of the way.
You possess the rare, but essential combination of sharp business and professional skill, paired with a relaxed personal approach that produced a wonderful experience buying a home – a house that we will easily and joyfully create into a home. Thank you for living up to your marketing – and most defining, your word. From 1,200 miles away – that assurance was priceless. We look forward to a continued friendship and will freely and often recommend you and your work.”
Melinda and JR Humbert
Having just moved here from Rhode Island, we recently bought a home in Boulder. This has been a long difficult process, complicated by the distance, which was made so much easier for us by our realtor, Neil Kearney of Kearney Realty Co.
Neil’s superb way of doing business, as in no pressure or aggressive sales pitch, just patience, intelligent information on all aspects of our search and his willingness to accommodate our travel schedules, was truly appreciated. While buying a home is never easy, it is always more difficult if your current abode is far away. Neil couldn’t have been more supportive or available while we searched for the “right fit” and then began the negotiations of buying a new home. Neil’s attention to detail was inordinately helpful when it came to working out the minutia of the mortgage or making sure nothing was missed in the official inspection or our final ‘walk-through.’ He definitely caught several problems that we would have missed. Moreover, he had many helpful and useful suggestions for the kinds of services we might need in a new area. We always felt his service was above and beyond what would normally be expected.
Finally, Neil Kearney is so pleasant and does his job so well and seemingly effortlessly, that we would recommend him to anyone considering buying a house in the area. There is no question that we would use Neil Kearney’s services should we ever decide to move again.
Reva & Gerson Greenburg
“In addition to being a detail oriented and competent realtor, Neil has a generosity of spirit that makes him a pleasure to work with. For home buyers working in Boulder and choosing to live in a satellite community, there are so many subdivision options from which to choose. Neil was extremely patient as I explored nearly all of them, and his frank assessment of each neighborhood’s pro’s and con’s was most helpful. It is evident that Neil places more value on assuring his customers find good homes that suit them than he does on making a quick sale. ”
–The Rev. Susan W. Springer
“It was a pleasure working with Neil as we searched for a new home in Boulder County. Coming from a different state and only living in Longmont a few months, we appreciated how helpful Neil was in directing us toward a home that met all of our needs and was within our budget. With Neil, we knew that we had an objective observer. He always kept a level head and noticed details like cracking foundations and unnecessary wear and tear. He always made us feel “in charge” of the purchase decision and the negotiation process. We never felt anxious or that he was in too much of a hurry to make sure we were satisfied every step of the way. We definitely recommend Neil Kearney as a Realtor and look forward to working with him again in the future.”
Preston and Jana Jackson
“Thank you for all your help and know-how during the sale of my Broomfield condo. I feel so fortunate to have met you through Carol and to have your assistance through the selling process which can be quite overwhelming at times.”
“We can recommend Neil Kearney to anyone interested in purchasing a house in the area. When we bought our home, we were very surprised at how easy the entire process was. Neil’s communication was always timely, he is quite thorough and we trusted that he had our best interest in mind at all times. His honesty, knowledge and kindness are uncommon.”
Julie and Tony
“Neil was a fantastic realtor for us. His patience and integrity really made our house buying experience smooth and pleasant. It was also great to have a Boulder native helping us transition into this community from out-of-state.”
Elizabeth and Andrew Drozda-Freeman
“After two months in our new house, we’re feeling very much “at home” and thrilled that we’re here. We couldn’t be happier with how it all worked out. Selling one house and buying another is fairly nerve-wracking, and we’re glad we had you there to smooth the way. We appreciated your ever-present calm and professional manner and your sharp eye for potential problems when viewing properties. And your advice regarding pricing landed good bids in a short time in a tough market. We would be pleased to recommend your services to anyone considering buying or selling a house.”
Carol and Ronald Berk
“We must say thank you, thank you, thank you for making a transaction that we anticipated with dread become a pleasant experience. Your congenial manner along with your professional expertise earned our ongoing trust during the entire process… and, should we, our friends and family again need help with a similar acquisition, you would be the person we call or recommend to others. At the end we had the feeling that you were a good friend who was there for us every step of the way – always with consideration of our needs and best interests. Thanks again we feel very fortunate to have “found” you!”
Bill and Connie Starr
“We were extremely pleased with the job Neil Kearney at Kearney Realty Co. did for us in finding a new home. He was very patient with us in our search and we found the exact home we had been looking for. Neil was professional in every aspect of our transactions, including not only the purchase of our new home, but the selling of our old home. We would recommend his services to anyone.”
“If you’re looking for someone who is intelligent, professional, honest, level-headed, poised, polite, ambitious yet balanced, then Neil will be a good fit.”
D. Brian Boettiger
“Neil has more integrity, patience and business acumen than any Realtor we have met. He always had our best interest in mind.”
Lara and Arnfinn Austefjord
“Thank you so much for all your help over the past several months as we looked for a house, bid on a house, negotiated it and, finally, tried to figure out how all the bells and whistles worked! Your knowledge, advice, and efforts to help us out are greatly appreciated, and we will definitely recommend you to anyone we know who needs a Realtor”
Ben Kirshner and Buzzy Jackson
“Buying our first house was a surprisingly easy and enjoyable experience thanks to the generous help and support of Neil Kearney. Our challenges seemed rather overwhelming at first: we needed to purchase a home from out of state, within a specific timeline, and without knowing the area… not to mention within our budget and with no home-buying experience. After just one afternoon viewing homes in the area, however, Neil guided us through the process with honest, expert advice. He alerted us to houses we might be interested in, viewed the homes for us, shared his opinions about the possibilities of a good match, and managed the entire purchasing process with great insight. We could not be happier with our home, the price we paid for it, or the process. Thanks Neil!”
Rebecca Laverdure and Ed Wiley
“We couldn’t offer a stronger recommendation for Neil Kearney. Neil was always punctual for scheduled meetings, and always well-prepared. With his thorough understanding of the Boulder Valley real estate market, and you can depend on Neil to do everything he can to help you find an ideal house. He pays close attention to the preferences of his clients and adjusts the listings he shows accordingly. We have come across other realtors that seem to add a lot of stress to the process of buying a house. By contrast, Neil is a calming presence. After a few months working with Neil, we thought of him as both our realtor and our friend.”
Derek Briggs and Whitney Pinion
“Neil was very effective in both the sale of our old house and in the purchase of our new house. He showed us numerous residences within our price range, and when we found the one that we liked, he was able to complete the sale and get us what we wanted. He also got a great price on the sale of our old house, and he did so during a slow seller’s market and well within our time frame to close on our new purchase. Throughout the process, he showed great patience, attention to detail and overall professionalism. We were fortunate to have him on our side.”
Tom and Sue Mills
“We both want to thank you from the bottom of our hearts for helping us find the house of our dreams! We appreciate all of the time you took answering our many questions, showing us so many great houses, and making the closing process smooth and worry free. We would definitely recommend you to our good friends, and will certainly contact you if we should ever have to buy or sell again.”
Kirsten and Allen McNeal
“Neil is a top-notch real estate broker with a high level of professionalism and integrity. I would recommend his services to anyone.”
Coral and Scott Darby
“Early this year I began looking for a new home on my own. I attended open houses each weekend, and I talked with countless real estate agents. I met Neil at a home he was showing, and I was immediately impressed with his professional attitude, client loyalty, and knowledge of real estate. He stood out from the rest of the agents with his low pressure approach, and when it came time to hire an agent of my own, Neil was my first choice. He helped me find a home suited to my tastes and budget, and throughout the process he was consistently patient and hard-working. The next time I go looking for a new home, Neil will be the first person I call.”
“Your patience and good humor have truly been assets during this home search. Thank you for sticking in there and finding just the right place. Much appreciated!”
“We appreciated Neil’s persistence, patience and good advice in helping us both sell our old home and purchase a new one. Everything was done with professionalism, organization and good cheer. Our family keeps coming back to Neil. We would recommend him to anyone who wants a great real estate broker.”
Rob and Heidi Bodam
“Neil is one of the few real estate agents that actively works hard to sell your home. His knowledge of the Boulder County real estate market was invaluable in helping us make our real estate decisions.”
Jeff and Megan Schuler
“Mr. Kearney is a nice man.”
“In the process of purchasing a home I found that Neil made the whole procedure simple, easy, and pleasant for me. Neil is easy to work with. He is extremely knowledgeable about all types of listings and shares pertinent information as often as it comes up. He quickly learned what aspect of the market I was looking at. Then conducted a search of the Multi-list website and allowed me to preview many houses online. After I selected several houses Neil and I would discuss the best options available and we would visit these houses. This was a very effective technique in finding the correct house for me and my children. This is the second house Neil has helped me purchase. I find him to be an excellent realtor. I would highly recommend Neil to any of my friends that are looking for a house.”
