One of the best Realtors® in the country. I have never worked with anyone as hard working and committed as Alan. He has never let me down.

Dear Alan: I wanted to send you a letter of recommendation to let you know how much I appreciated your help in purchasing my home. You were very helpful in locating both houses and land that met our requirements. One of the things that stands out most in my mind is your ability to patiently work through all the complications that arise when building a home. That truly impressed me! I will continue to recommend you to my friends and family. Knowing that you are a responsible, attentive, and patient professional makes it easy for me to refer prospective customers to you. Thanks for all your help! I’ll be sure to contact you in the future when I need your professional services. Sincerely,

Sandra K. Fenton

Dear Bill, Cres and Mary: I am writing to inform you how pleased, impressed and totally satisfied I am with Alan Wilaby. As a client of The Shields Corporation, Alan brokered our recent home purchase. Overall, I have nothing but the utmost praise for the professional manner in which Alan conducts business. From the first day we met until closing, Alan’s capabilities as a real estate broker far exceeded any of our expectations. Alan is a very positive, gregarious individual, who is able to interface with a wide variety of people. Before we looked at any houses, Alan took the time to understand us as people-our lifestyle, personal preferences, needs and desires. When we finally toured properties, Alan knew exactly what we were looking for and was able to easily match us with a home. Alan’s honesty and integrity are qualities that also stand out. Alan always looked out for our best interests. He would present us with information and then stand back and let us make our own decisions. If he though we were making a wrong decision, or needed additional advice, he would go out of his way to steer us in the right direction. We had total trust and confidence in Alan’s capabilities. On behalf of my wife and myself, I want to compliment Alan and The Shields Corporation for their commitment to quality, total customer satisfaction, and the professional manner in which they conduct business. Sincerely yours,

Steven M. Furman

This letter is to express my thanks to Alan Wilaby. Alan has helped me purchase my personal residence and many rentals. Alan also assisted in the sale of many properties in the Colorado Springs and in other areas by referring qualified agents to me. Alan’s help has always been professional, honest and understanding of my situation. I would recommend Alan to anyone. His work goes beyond the normal scope of Real Estate by putting the needs of his clients first and foremost!

Our thanks to Mr. Alan Wilaby. When relocating to the Colorado Springs area, my company recommended the Shields Corporation as a source of information to locate a place to stay. We were unsure what we were going to do. Buy, rent, house, apartment? We discussed the choices with Alan, and he patiently explained the current Real Estate market. Alan has lived in the area most of his life, he knows this area! When my wife and I flew into the Springs on a house hunting trip, Alan was ready with a variety of homes lines up to show us. In a very short time, we had an idea of which part of town we desired to live in, the school system we wanted our children to attend, and how much house we could afford. Because of the influx of some major corporations into Colorado Springs, it was definately a sellers market, and few homes were available. Back on the East Coast, Alan kept us informed of new and existing properties. When I arrived in town to start my job, I had a pretty good feel for the market. In three days we had a contract. In three weeks we were in the house, children ready for school, and our family together again. We are very thankful for Alan. His professional hard work and integrity have been a blessing to our family. We consider him a friend and periodically call him for information and advice. Sincerely,

Keith L. Myers

It is my pleasure to provide this letter of reference and recommendation for Alan R. Wilaby, and the relocation department. I have known Alan for over ten years and have followed his real estate career with great interest. My appraisal is that the success of his career is based upon four things; hard work, knowledge, professionalism and integrity. Alan is a life-long member of the community so he’s extremely well versed on all aspects of life in the region, an important need of people relocating here from other areas of the country. Additionally I’m convinced Alan has a more than adequate knowledge in the area of financing resources and their technicalities, as well as building codes and other technical aspects to home buying or building. Add to this the considerable resources of the Relocation froup and you are provided a first rate service. As a regional director of personnel for the United Banks of Colorado, I called upon Alan to support my relocation of new executives coming into the bank. Alan’s personal concern for people coupled with his knowledge made his choice a popular one. I have had the opportunity to observe Alan working with clients and was very impressed with his abilities. I am sure Alan would make a favorable impression on new arrivals, reflecting very positively on you, your company and our community. Sincerely,

Donald E. Demaree, Jr

Alan Wilaby has provided me with exceptional real estate advice since 1991. Two years after my divorce, I decided to become a home owner. I had relatively stringent criteria for my home. I thought it would be close to impossible for Alan to find exactly what I was looking for, but I was very wrong. Alan tracked me down in New York while I was on a business trip, and shortly upon my return, I found myself with a contract on my dream home. Since that time, Alan has advised and supported me on the sale of my home, the purchase of a lot, and along with my new husband, the purchase of an even more exciting new home constructed by Vantage Homes. I could not be more pleased. You know they all tell you there are a few key experts you should have on your side; an accountant, a lawyer, and a good mechanic. I would also add, an excellent real estate agent. For me, that agent is Alan Wilaby. Thanks for having Alan part of your team.

Pam and I relocated from northern California to Colorado Springs in December of 1993. During the period of time when we were visiting the area and house-hunting we met Alan Wilaby of The Shields Corporation. Alan spent a lot of time with us helping us become familiar with different neighborhoods and helping us decide whether to buy an existing home or build a home. Much of this time was invested in good faith by Alan; we did not sign a contract to be represented by him until some time later. During this time we talked to several other local Realtors®; it was obvious that Alan’s expertise and professionalism was far above the norm. We eventually decided to build a home which necessitated finding a short-term rental during construction. Alan found an ideal rental for us in one day - in a very tight rental market. We moved into the rental and continued to work with Alan to find a lot and a builder with whom we felt comfortable. During this time we were getting settled and in need of any number of local services - Alan was able to direct us to Colorado Springs merchants that he knew to be reliable. We eventually began construction and worked through the many issues and questions that come up while building a house. Alan was involved throughout the process; his knowledge of construction and local business practices saved us a great deal of time and uncertainty. We have now been living in our home for a year. Our experience in building a home was a fun and exciting, in contrast to many of the horror stories we have heard from other people in the area. Alan’s help and advice along with an excellent builder - whom Alan recommended - made our building experience a success. Alan and his wife Marge have been most gracious in helping us feel at home in Colorado Springs before, during, and after our move. We do not hesitate to recommend Alan as an outstanding professional in his field. Regards,

Dave and Pamela Myers
