Looking for a Realtor? You've found me!
I've lived in Denver since 1976. "The Queen City of the Plains" is a great place to live. Being a Metro Denver Realtor means combining two things I care deeply about - real estate and Denver. I succeed by taking care of my clients, helping them reach their goals, and earning their trust. Helping people realize their dreams is a great privilege and pleasure.
As a full time Colorado Realtor since 1998, I've seen dramatic changes in the national and Metro Denver real estate market. But there is one thing that never changes - the importance of working with people you can trust. You deserve a Realtor who has integrity, looks out for your best interests, knows Colorado real estate, and has the experience, training, and skills to do a good job for you. I work hard every day to show my clients that I'm that kind of Realtor.
In 18+ years as a full-time Realtor, my sellers have never taken a penny less than the value of their home and my buyers have never spent a penny more than they had to. Those are facts that are important to you, and achievements I'm proud of.
I tell my clients that buying and selling real estate can be fun and exciting, but it can also be stressful at times. I believe a calm, positive attitude helps to reduce stress and helps my clients relax and stay focused. If any challenges do come up, we can handle them quickly and effectively.
For more about my approach to real estate, see our Mission Statement.
I grew up in Albuquerque and graduated from the University of New Mexico. After college I became a banker and was a bank Vice President for several years. I left banking to start and run a successful small business. As part of that, I served several terms on the board of an international trade organization, including two terms as President. I've always been interested in real estate, and I got my license as a Realtor in 1998.
I served on the Brighton Home Rule Charter Commission, which wrote a new city charter for the City of Brighton, and was Chairman of the Charter Commission Finance Committee. I've also served as Chairman of the Brighton Zoning Board of Adjustment and as board member and Vice Chairman of the Brighton Historic Preservation Commission.
Quote: "Thank you from The City of Brighton. Your ideas, hard work, talents, and enthusiasm as a volunteer and sponsor are greatly appreciated."
Continuing education is a requirement for Realtors. I believe education is important, and I take a lot more continuing education classes than I'm required to take. Keeping informed helps me do a better job for my clients.
If a Realtor has enough training (or training and experience) in certain areas, he or she receives a certification or designation in that area. Mine are:
My Colorado real estate license is at the most advanced level - that of Employing Broker. I'm a member of the National Association of Realtors. Read our Code of Ethics here. I also belong to the Colorado Association of Realtors, the Aurora Board of Realtors, and ReColorado MLS. I've served several terms on the Agent Leadership Council for Keller Williams Preferred Realty. I also belong to a network of Realtors throughout the U.S. and Canada who continually seek ways to provide better services for our clients.
I look forward to meeting you and helping you with your real estate needs.
My wife, Rosemary, and I have been married since 1977 and have been business partners since 1983. Rosemary handles our real estate websites, administration, and marketing and makes it all look easy. Her warmth, kindness, skills, talents, and attention to detail keep everything running smoothly. That allows me to concentrate on providing outstanding real estate services for you. And I get to go to work every day with my best friend!
Our team consists of highly skilled professionals, including transaction coordinators, marketing assistants, inspectors, mortgage specialists, title policy coordinators, and title company closers. These people help to free up my time so I can give you my personal attention and assistance.
Hi, I'm Tristan, the Office Manager for Homes of Metro Denver.
I'm a Samoyed. Samoyeds are a very old breed from Siberia, known for our gentle, loving temperaments. Dave and Rosemary adopted me from the Denver Dumb Friends League in 2011. I was named for Tristan Farnon, the “lovable ne’er do well” in All Creatures Great and Small. I’ve definitely got the lovable part perfected. I keep trying to work on the ne’er do well part, but my responsibilities as Office Manager keep getting in the way. I supervise everyone and make sure everything gets done. I especially help Rosemary by sleeping right next to her office chair. When she gets up, I get up, because there may be a treat or an adventure coming my way. I hope you have as many treats and adventures in your life as I do.
There are lots more wonderful animals in shelters, waiting for a chance to love and be loved. Please help them by supporting your local Metro Denver animal shelter, because everyone deserves a "wrooof" over their heads.
