Welcome to Higher Ground Real Estate!

It has been my great pleasure to meet the real estate needs for you, your family, and your friends since 1993.

You will find the links to navigate through the site right above the photo!

Please feel free to contact me with any need you may have, whether that be buying, selling, or just maybe some questions... I understand that there are many questions to be asked.

I am a firm believer in a good reputation. If you would like to know what I have to say about myself, you'll find that in the "About Joe" page. But here are a few things some people have said about me!

    In our first introduction to Joe Cuchiara he was representing our daughter and son-in-law attempting to buy their first home. We were asked to give our opinion of a house they were considering and Joe was present as we walked through.   As we asked questions or had concerns about the property,  it was apparent Joe possessed real-estate knowledge based on years of experience.   We continued to hear about Joe via our daughter as they navigated their way through the contract process and were highly impressed with how he represented her and our son-in-law to the seller’s agent, including throughout the home inspection process. 

    We purchased our first home in 1990 and since that time have bought and sold 7 houses, ranging from $85K to over $1 million.   Frankly, over the years we’d become somewhat cynical about realtors as it seems many simply think their work stops once they’ve put your house onto the Multiple Listing Service (MLS).   This is not the case with Joe and we cannot emphasize that enough!    He is always professional not only with his clients, but also with buyer/seller agents and there’s no doubt in our mind or experience that we’d not have made it to closing were it not for Joe’s ability to be a calm, knowledgeable advisor to us when emotions ran high.  

    We have used Joe for our two most recent home sale transactions, and we continue to work with Joe as we are looking to buy or build a new home.   He is always prompt to respond to texts and email questions and requests, and he’s never made us feel that we’ve been a burden even though oftentimes we’re contacting him on short notice.  Another way Joe distinguishes himself from other realtors we’ve worked with is he takes complete ownership of the entire contract process…managing inspection schedules, deadlines, even some of the inspection resolution tasks.  This took such a significant burden off us and really helped streamline the entire process.  

    Without question,  we would recommend Joe as a realtor and have already done so on several occasions.

    One of the biggest decisions our family has ever faced was, Where are we going to live? It’s a very personal and private and important decision. Joe Cuchiara guided us through every step, using his experience to help us make the right choices. He’s a constant professional that understands everything you need to know for buying or selling a house. When we hear family and friends talk about their experiences with other real estate agents, my wife and I are always reminded how thankful we were to work with Joe on buying our home, and then later on when we decided to sell it. Having the right person to help guide you through this process can make all the difference in the world. That’s what Joe did for us.

    Joe brings a rare bend of expertise, professionalism, and warmth to his craft. We give him our highest endorsement, and would use him again... in a heartbeat!

    I would absolutely recommend Joe to anyone looking to buy or sell a home. My wife and I were selling a home while out of state. Joe provided his real estate expertise to us. We never had to worry about a thing. Joe was candid and highly responsive to all of our needs throughout the entire process. I would not even consider ever using another realtor to buy or sell a home in Colorado Springs as long as Joe Cuchiara is still in real estate. This guy is the standard by which realtors should be measured!

    "I just sold my Colorado Springs home with Joe Cuchiara by my side. A close friend had recommended him to me saying that she thought she could trust Joe with any transaction. I can't agree more. As a single woman now living away from Colorado Springs I had to heavily rely on Joe to have the outside of my house taken care of while it was on the market. He arranged all of the work and sent me the billing arrangements. No email or text went unanswered for more than a couple of hours. And when it came to selling my home, he took extra time to talk through the positives and negatives allowing me to make my own decision. Joe is truly a trustworthy, Godly man. I can't recommend him more highly!"

    "Joe, Words cannot express how incredibly grateful we are for everything you've done for us over the past several months. As first time homebuyers, we had absolutely no idea what to do or where to begin. We were terrified of the home buying process at first, but the moment we chose you to be our Realtor everything changed. Throughout this entire experience, you have never ceased to amaze us with your incredible level of service and dedication. You went out of your way countless times to make sure that we were at ease with what was going on. Not only did you hold our hands and walk us through the process of choosing homes, making offers and meeting deadlines, but you were also there for us each time we became confused or frustrated with any aspect of the process that you had no obligation toward. You consistently went above and beyond what we ever could have expected and provided us with an outstanding home buying experience. You have been so much more than just a Realtor to us; you've been an amazing teacher, advisor, advocate, and friend. We are so blessed to know you and are eager to spread the word of Higher Ground Real Estate to all of our friends, relatives, neighbors, coworkers, and even perfect strangers who are looking for exceptional real estate service in the future. Thank you for everything, Joe. It has truly been a pleasure."
