C3 Real Estate Solutions, LLC, opened its fifth Northern Colorado office Oct. 1 to give its Greeley area clients somewhere close to home to do business.

“We wanted to be able to serve the people of Greeley better by being more local. Also, we have a number of experienced real estate agents from Greeley that call Greeley their hometown,” said Stephen Foster, chief operations officer for C3 Real Estate. “Greeley is one of the fastest growing areas in Northern Colorado. We wanted to be there to serve the community the best we can.”

C3 Real Estate is a full-service real estate firm that provides residential, commercial, luxury, and farm and ranch sales and leasing, as well as property management services. The company has two offices in Fort Collins in Old Town and on Harmony Road, one in downtown Loveland and one in Johnstown, plus a sixth office in Breckenridge. The Greeley office, 4625 W. 20th St., is the only one in an office complex, while the other offices are storefronts.

“We went in and renovated the building, so the tenants in there are better taken care of,” Foster said.

The building is staffed by nine agents, though the expectation is for 15 agents at full staff.

“The majority of our agents have extensive experience, years of experience in Northern Colorado and throughout the U.S. They bring years, I mean hundreds of years of experience, to the table,” Foster said. “They are very committed to providing the best level of service not only to their customers but to the communities they serve.”

C3 Real Estate considers real estate to be about people, not property, bringing together buyers and sellers by integrating personal service and knowledge with the tools of the business. The firm provides everything from conference rooms to state-of-the-art technology for smooth, efficient transactions and a long list of other comforts to meet the clients’ needs, Foster said.

“We have very nice luxurious offices,” Foster said. “We don’t cut corners anywhere. When someone comes to one of our offices, they are going to get treated extremely well. We believe it’s all about the customer.”

This December, C3 Real Estate will celebrate its 10-year anniversary. The company was started Dec. 12, 2012 (or 12/12/12), by John Simmons and Jesse Laner.

“I like to say we started with two men and a dream. We now have over 150 agents and five locations,” Foster said. “We’ve served thousands of families with all of their real estate needs. There’s never been a company as good as C3 because of the way they treat their agents and their customers.”

In 2022, C3 Real Estate added NuWay Lending and NuWay Title & Escrow to offer lending and title services for a one-stop shop of comprehensive real estate services.

“The C3 flair is for cutting-edge and old-fashioned real estate but with all the modern amenities,” Foster said.

That means services are in-person with extras like virtual tours and online access to photographs of properties for sale or lease, Foster said.

“Our marketing is the best in the industry. We only use professional photographers, floor plan people, flyers and advertising,” Foster said. “We only use the very, very best to serve our customers.”

C3 refers to Character, Culture and Commitment, the cornerstone of the company’s mission, which is to provide high-level, personal service to clients and outreach to the larger community. C3 Real Estate also operates with a focus on balancing the five F’s of faith, fitness, finance, family and fun.

As part of its outreach, C3 Real Estate sponsors events such as the Loveland Liberty 5K and the Loveland Lake to Lake Triathlon, donates to charities and foundations on an annual basis, and offers a Give Back program for agents to donate a portion of their closings. Agents also volunteer at varies agencies as another way to give back.

“Each agent has a different passion. They volunteer at churches, homeless shelters and food banks,” Foster said.

The agents at the Greeley office include, Andrea Alles, Stephanie Nealy, Pres Montoya, Perry Hillegas, Marisol Valenzuela, Nikki Shaw, Amber Holt, Rohanna Roma and Breann Roup.

“Our goal is never to be the biggest in Northern Colorado. We just want to be able to provide the best service in Northern Colorado,” Foster said.

The Greeley C3 Real Estate office is open 9 a.m.-5 p.m. Monday to Friday. For more details about C3 Real Estate, visit or call 970-225-5153.
