Good for You: former Windsor resident, local broker wins client-nominated award
September 18, 2015
Continuing a year filled with more awards than expected, former Windsor resident and RE/MAX Alliance Broker Jeanette Meyer was awarded the 2015 Five Star Real Estate Agent Award.
Meyer has owned and operated Meyer Property, Inc., a residential real estate firm, since 2001, according to a news release from her office.
Meyer — who still sells homes in the Windsor area and throughout northern Colorado — was nominated for the award by one of her clients anonymously.
While the nomination came as a surprise, she isn't too curious about which, or how many clients, wrote to the contest's sponsor, Denver's 5280 Magazine.

Instead, she is focused on continuing to provide the same level of service for which she was nominated.

"That somebody would do that is really humbling and touching," she said. "Now I'm focused on the idea that I have something that is really important for me to live up to."
In the face of a new truth-in-lending regulation, the award comes a reminder to Meyer of the importance broker's play in getting their clients financed and making their dream homes a reality.
For one of her clients — a couple that had moved from California to Colorado to be closer to their daughter, son-in-law and their kids — Meyer was able to get them financed by being a consistent, curious middle ground between the client and the lender.
By pushing for answers from the lender, she was able to find out that there was a glitch in the reporting system that was causing hang-ups.
"I just kept asking questions and being curious and kept the client up front in my mind," she said.
The new regulation, which would provide more information to the client in the lending process, could also be confusing with a flood of new information that, without a broker to simplify, can muddy the process.
Moving forward, Meyer said she hopes to "stay curious, keep asking questions and try my best to stay in front of clients."
