"We selected Denise Duran-Marcum based on first-hand knowledge of the level of dedication and commitment she brings to her profession. As a neighbor of hers from some years back, we witnessed how hard she worked to serve the needs of her clientele while raising a beautiful family. When we met with her to list our home, she worked side-by-side with us to ascertain our expectations, and strategize a marketing plan to best accommodate our needs. Denise takes great pride in giving 100% to every thing she does, and it is reflected in her work as a broker. Her years of experience, market savviness, and attention to every step of the selling process alleviated a lot of the stress that goes hand-in-hand with selling your home. We really appreciated Denise’s direct, and candid approach during the typical “bumps in the road” in the selling process. Her level-headedness and professional attitude calmed us during those trying times, and kept us focused on the “big picture”. Her hard work and persistent demeanor led to us selling our home in a little over a day, and for more than list price!"
"Hands down, I would recommend Denise Duran-Marcum to anyone. I had tried working with several other Realtors® before meeting Denise and she truly is something special. Denise helped us buy our previous home and she was the first person we called when we were ready to move on up. We didn’t even need to consider another broker – Denise is amazing. Denise was such a valuable partner when we were purchasing our house. She was an amazing advocate and got everything we wanted! She’s always on our side and doesn’t settle for anything less than perfect. Denise found us our perfect home, but I am going to miss looking at houses with her! She’s so much fun to work with. Denise is a great listener and is always accessible (even for last minute requests and late night questions)."
"Denise is an utmost professional and incredibly easy to work with. She is exceptionally knowledgeable about the areas we were looking for homes and was candid with her responses to our questions about them. She worked with us for 6 months in the incredibly difficult Denver area real estate market and fought hard for us on every offer that we put in. Upon getting an accepted offer she lead us through the entire closing process, answered all of our questions, and kept everyone on schedule for a timely and well-executed closing. This was our first home purchase on top of the difficulties of this market, and Denise guided us through it all with exceptional character and kindness. For as long as we’re in the area and Denise is still working in real estate, we will utilize her services."
"I was searching for a family home in the Denver area, but couldn’t be there through the process. The market is brutal for buyers right now in that location, and Denise found house after house that fit our needs, but someone always beat us to the punch. She doubled her efforts and found a great house, and personally wrote a letter to the sellers about us and they took our offer! And that was just the start. She then handled everything for the following month paperwork inspections exceptions more inspections etc. up to the closing date. She was always in constant, up to the minute communications. She smoothed out every speed bump along the way, and made this the easiest, and most pleasurable home purchase I have ever experienced."
"When I had the idea of purchasing my first home I was intimidated by the competitive market. Denise walked me through eatch and every step of my buying journey by first educating me on the the process, then familiarizing me with the market, and by scheduling a variety of showings around my schedule. It wasn’t easy and I almost wanted to give up due to the limited supply of property available when I was looking. However, Denise kept me motivated and when it was time to make an offer she helped me stay competitive. We ended up finding the perfect fit for my situation and I can’t thank her enough. I can’t imagine a better buying experience and would recommend her to anyone that is serious about finding their new home."
"Denise had made our first buying and selling experience such a dream. She advocated for us, listened to us, and worked miracles when it came to our budget and the Colorado housing market. We recommend her regularly! Denise has become a dear friend after working with her the first time. And she needed lots of patience with us. Our budget was tight and our needs hard to find in the Denver metro area. She listened and was incredibly gracious with us, as we navigated our home buying experience. I have since met Stacie, and absolutely loved her! I believe you have a wonderful team!"
"Denise made our lengthy experience fun and informative. We spent many months with her on ‘research’ trips to determine the best area for us to live. We found the location and house we dreamed of and never looked back! Her attention to detail and customer service focus is amazing. She was a partner with us, answered all the questions we had (and still have) and always made us feel #1! Her knowledge of the market, areas and the process is top-notch. Denise puts her heart and soul into the experience right along with you. She was our greatest asset!"
"Denise was exceptionally helpful. She showed me ~ 30 homes in my price range for 2 months, understood exactly what it was that I was looking for in a home and yard, and showed me specific properties that matched my needs. Since I wanted a property within 15 to 20 miles of work, she traveled with me everywhere within a 20 mile radius of Golden, CO. Denise was always very punctual, and was in daily contact with me. When I found the property that I wanted, Denise expedited the process and I got exactly what I wanted."
"Erin Posey was a dream to work with, and I would absolutely recommend her to anyone in need of a little extra guidance in the home buying process. I am a first time homebuyer and had many questions of which Erin always had an answer for and was always available to answer. She really made us feel like we were her only priority, and she always provided the best advice. If you want a knowledgeable, sweet, professional, trustworthy, and overall good person as your real estate agent, Erin is the agent for you!"
"Denise handled the sale of our last investment property with excellence rarely seen in Real Estate Brokers. She always addressed our concerns and made them hers. Denise challenged the lower than expected appraisal with fantastic research. She definitely stands out from other Brokers in a good way. The level of service she happily provided was far more than that which I typically see. I very highly recommend her to anyone seeking to sell, or purchase, a home."
"Erin is amazing to work with! She explains everything in detail. Very helpful! Erin is great at guiding you step by step through the whole process. It was a very important and emotional decision and she was helpful and compassionate every step of the way. She made me feel secure in all the decisions I made."
"Denise is very easy to work with. She loves what she does and it shows her enthusiasm as you work with her. We had a fairly difficult seller. Denise was great about dealing with it all. She was on top of solutions and counters while dealing with the seller. We very much appreciated all her hard work. She is a joy to work with and we would highly recommend!"
"Denise and her team went above and beyond to help us with the sale of this home. She even enlisted her family to help us get the house ready for market! It was very comforting to have a Realtor® that is so familiar with the area! She did an excellent job of helping us negotiate the contracts and surviving this crazy sale (not one but two contracts fell through) We would definitely recommend Denise to any of our friends or family!"
"We thought that selling our home could have been a really stressful process. But Denise was upfront, helped us understand what to expect and was flexible throughout. We appreciated all of her expertise as we navigated the process. We were very pleased with the result and look forward to closing on our next home with Denise!"
"Denise helped us find the exact home we were looking for. She took the time to understand what we wanted and now we have it! Thank you. Denise was very professional, friendly, and knowledgeable about our market. Our house had multiple offers in the first weekend and sold quickly, everything went very smoothly. Denise was always available to answer questions and provide support. We enjoyed working with her."
"Denise looked out for us every step of the way. She was able to balance her relationship with us and the Seller so that we both came to a place where we were very satisfied. She took care of both sides of the transaction flawlessly, and made sure we had all of our financing prepped will in advance of closing."
"Denise is very knowledgeable in market value, selling and buying advise, financing and decision making. We had done a little research, e.g. Zillow and would have sold for less than we were offered. Additionally, Denise was critical in helping us select the best offer as price is not the only factor."
"Denise is a knowledgeable, skilled professional who also happens to be a funny, kind person who cares about her clients and wants to do what’s best for them. We were in great hands every step of the way."
"Erin is amazing! She is the best Realtor® we’ve ever had. I was impressed with her professionalism and dedication. She truly cares about your big decision in purchasing a home. She is caring and genuine."
"Denise was outstanding and I felt like she had my back at every step of the way. She was easy to work with and I trusted her experience and knowledge. I would definitely recommend Denise and her team!"
"Simply Amazing Denise has always gone above and beyond for me. She did not disappoint on this home purchase once again. Her knowledge of the area, inventory, pricing, and the market made things very smooth. With everything that is going on during the pandemic, she handled it with style and made it a great experience. Thank you Denise for an Awesome job!"
"Extremely satisfied Can’t say enough great things how Denise went above and beyond to get us under contract. Denise negotiated the seller to accept our offer over other offers. This is the second time Denise has helped us in our home search. Both times we had been extremely satisfied. She has also assisted other family members and everyone has been pleased with their results. We will definitely use her for any future needs."
"Highly Recommend Denise to Anybody and Everybody!!!! Working with Denise was an absolute pleasure from the start! To begin, Denise is extremely knowledgeable about the market. She was able to answer any questions, as well as execute a strategic plan based on my budget and preferred location. This strategic approach carried into an offer and eventual close. Denise was also great at communicating throughout the whole process and making sure everything was extremely transparent. I would highly recommend her to anyone, and plan to solely use her for any future real estate needs."
" Denise did a great job for us. We will definitely recommend her to friends and family. "
"Fantastic! Denise is THE BEST! I would 100% recommend her to anyone looking to buy or sell. Her expertise is unparalleled and her process works!"
"Professional and knowledgeable Denise was great to work with! She was thorough and had great communication throughout the whole process. Love her attitude as well - always positive!"
"Denise's expertise is invaluable. She handles everything with grace and positivity. The first time we met Denise was on zoom and we immediately felt comfortable with her and felt we could trust her to help us find the right home in the right area for our family. Her extensive knowledge and experience really shined when she showed us different homes in different neighborhoods. It is obvious she loves what she does and she’s amazing at it. She really does want the best for her clients. She makes you feel like you are her number one priority. Even faced with competing in today’s seller’s market, Denise displayed her prowess and crafted our offer into the winning strategy that landed us our dream house. We are excited for our new life in Colorado. Thank you Denise!"
"very professional, helpful, knowledgeable and caring Denise, is not only a very knowledgeable realtor, but puts forth her personal, individual attention to assure the well being of her clients. "
"Very caring, attentive and knowledgeable Denise really cares about her clients, spends a great deal of time to help find the perfect home and sell at the right price. She was very responsive and attentive to all our needs and concerns. "
"Denise is the Go-Getter to get the job done We had a fun and effective experience working with Denise. We were looking in the Arvada area which Denise is very familiar with as she was raised in the area. It was a challenging time to try and offer on a house but Denise was great in her advice and her go-get-em attitude. Both were crucial in getting us the house we wanted. I highly recommend working with Denise."
"Very professional! We loved working with Denise. She had our home professionally staged and the photos were beautiful which helped us get a great offer on our home. Highly recommend! "
"Happy home owners!!! We have worked with Denise for years. She helped us find our first home together nearly 10 years ago. In 2019 we decided to buy a mountain home in red feather lakes Colorado. Denise drove all over Colorado with us to find the perfect vacation home. When we decided to move from our home in Arvada to a home with more land and space for our kids, we knew Denise would deliver what we wanted. Her knowledge and professionalism is unmatched. I called and told her what we were looking for and within a few weeks she had found the perfect home for our family. Denise always works hard for her clients and makes sure no detail is overlooked. Naturally we are trusting Denise with the upcoming sale of our home in Arvada. We have no doubt that we are in good hands. Denise exemplifies what a real estate agent should be, she is professional, personable , knowledgeable, kind, and she makes sure every part of the process is seamless for her client."
"Wonderful agent! Attentive to our Needs & Helpful Every Step of the Way We met Denise at an open house for one of her listings and instantly connected with her! We appreciated how open and genuine she was without pushing contracts and having a “sales pitch.” The next day, we called her and asked her to help us find a home! After many showings and tours of various neighborhoods, she found us a home! In fact, we purchased the home without seeing it first and had full trust in Denise to have an eye for detail when walking the homes and previewing for us. She is an expert negotiator and all in all, saved us a significant amount of money… all while in a “sellers’ market.” She was on the phone with contractors, sewer line techs, structural engineers etc. nonstop to make sure we were getting the home in its best form! Denise was always available for questions or feedback throughout the process and we felt like she was an advocate for us every step of the way and was truly invested in our future! We found a great friend in Denise by the end of the process and truly would not have our beautiful home without her. We will not work with or recommend anyone else! Denise is the best of the best and goes to bat for her clients unlike any agent I’ve met. Highly highly recommend!"
"If you're buying or selling, you need Denise. A few years ago, I found Denise Marcum when I was trying to buy a house for my daughters family. It was a sellers market. Every time I made an offer, someone came in with cash and bumped me. Made on offer on the house we wanted, and fully expected to lose out. Denise wrote a letter to the sellers explaining our situation, and how much we hoped they would seriously consider our offer, even though we didn't have cash. After Denise made our case, they accepted our offer. The purchase went off without a hitch. At least for us. Denise took care of everything. I was in California the whole time. This year, we sold the house, and of course Denise was our listing agent. My daughter and her family already moved out, and I was in California, and couldn't make it out. She got me a great offer, much more than I was asking. And once again... the whole process went smooth as butter. Denise had to take care of EVERYTHING while I was here. She made frequent trips to the house, and met with inspectors, and repair and maintenance crews. I've heard that buying and selling houses is one of the most stressful things you can do. Not so with Denise. It was fun. She deserved more than she made on sale. 5 stars isn't enough."
"Thanks, Denise! During the sales process of our longtime family home, Denise's efforts were truly above and beyond expectation. Due to some complicating factors including having to coordinate from outside the area, we needed to leverage Denise's network of local service providers and take her up on her generous offer to coordinate activities on the ground. This extra effort combined with Denise's market expertise and transaction process savvy led to a smooth and successful sale."
"DENISE is simply THE BEST! We have known Denise for 6 years now. She helped us to buy our first home in Denver. I remember Denise drove me around showing me different neighborhoods South of Denver. I think we saw over 20 homes in about 2 weeks. Coming from a different state and different house styles, I was learning about basements, humidifiers, different builders, etc. Denise had a lot of patience with me, and she always went above and beyond my expectations to answer any questions or concerns. We purchased our first home in Castle Pines, Co. It was such a wonderful experience, very easy to work with, always available to answer our phone calls, and if she was not available she always called us back right away. My husband and me have purchased and sold several homes in our 32 years of marriage. We have moved a lot because of my husband’s job. We have worked with many realtors and Denise is just not an amazing very profesional real estate agent, she became our friend. Her people’s skills and manners to treat customers make her simply the best! We have not worked with another person like Denise. Buying and selling a home can be very stressful but working with Denise you know that she is really working hard for YOU. It’s not about her commission and a pay check. For Denise her customers are very important and she makes you feel it. After a few years in Denver we had to sell our home in Castle Pines and we called Denise. Our house got multiple offers the open house weekend. It was fantastic, we had to work with Denise and her team to prep the house for the open house and it all paid off, we sold our home FAST, and we moved back to Texas. After a couple of years and my husband and I really missed Denver. So we called Denise and she helped us again with the purchase of our townhome. The experience was very unique because we were in Texas and she was helping us long distance and in a different time zone. We knew that working with Denise was the best decision we could have ever made."
"If I could give 10 stars I would!! Denise, thank you for being our Broker! Not only did you get the most for our home and sell it quickly, but it was such a pleasure to work with a kind, hard working, professional, and knowledgeable woman. You know your market! You we’re an advocate for us every step of the way knowing we were not your only client you gave us very personal attention. Having worked with agents in the past this was the first time I felt we had someone we could count on. If a problem arose you were on it immediately! You were: -accessible -responsive -informative -upfront -honest I cannot thank you and your team enough for making the sale of our home such a positive experience. You’re one of the best brokers out there!"
"Absolutely Fantastic - I Cannot Recommend Denise Enough! Results! Denise sold the house for $125K over ask in four days. You simply cannot argue with those kinds of results. Her strategies, recommendations, and tactics worked perfectly. Add to that her friendly, outgoing personality and unmatched professionalism. By far the best experience in real estate we have ever had."
"A great experience I contacted Denise to purchase a home and her professionalism was outstanding - she took the time to explain us all the process, helping us not only to get a house that would work for us but also that would be a good investment."
"Top notch service! This is our second transaction with Denise (purchase and recent sale) and her customer service is top notch! She spent time with us on strategy of timing, pricing and staging with step-by-step assistance through the entire process. I don't know how, but she is available 24/7 and follows up on every detail. She always has the best interest of her clients (and their families) in mind through the entire timeline (and even some extra!). I am so very grateful to have Denise as part of our family!"
"Denise is incredible!!! Denise HAS to be one of the most patient realtors out there... Between my work and travels, it took me around 2 years to find a house and finally settle on one. Denise was always there jump back into the searching with me each time I was back in town. This was my first time buying a house so not only did she help me find one but she educated me throughout the whole process. The house buying process is certainly an overwhelming one but Denise did just a good job walking me through everything. With 20 years of experience under her belt, you can trust her!!"
"Professional and Personable Denise was professional and really got to know us before she started representing us for buying a home in the tough market that we faced. We trusted her instinct and negotiation skills and we closed on a home without any issues. I would recommend Denise to anyone buying from out of state, as she was flexible to our calls and accommodating to us flying in. She knows the Golden and surrounding areas well and if she ever didn't know something, she always knew who to ask and get us the information we needed as fast as possible."
"Knew what to ask when I didn’t She was incredibly friendly, honest and helpful through the whole process. She was on top of every step. Anticipating every next step she helped prepare us as much as possible. Denise made sure we were making a great investment for our future and in the most welcoming way. "
