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.
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.

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.
— Vince - Littleton, CO
Denise handled some of the thorniest issues in our real estate transaction (1 sale, 2 purchases) with ease – resolving every new (and often surprising) concern quickly. If we hadn’t had her working with us, I have no doubt all our deals would have come to a halt. Her experience, perspective, and business acumen came into play multiple times at critical points in the entire process. This is in addition to the fact that her listing service was A+ service, all the way! I can honestly say that IF YOU DO NOT HIRE DENISE, YOU ARE AT A SEVERE DISADVANTAGE in any market!
— Laura - Arvada/Westminster, CO , Seller & Buyer
Denise not only sold our home at List Price in less than a week, she graciously navigated the tenuous road of communication between my ex-husband & myself creating a pleasant experience. She exhibited extreme professionalism throughout the entire sale process, and grace managing the tense moments involved. I highly recommend Denise Duran-Marcum! – Joie, Arvada CO

Denise was wonderful to work with. She thinks outside the box to help sell your house. She was always available to answer our questions. Quick responses whether it was a phone call, text or email. She is a very hard worker and always has the best interest of her clients.
— Christina - Arvada CO, Seller
A professional in the industry with high values and tenacity. Denise made every moment involved in the buying and selling process enjoyable. Denise is not only trustworthy but a miracle worker. She was able to get us qualified on a loan on a Sunday and was able to convince seller to consider our bid even though they already had a contract with full asking price. The day we moved out Denise was bringing donuts for our teenage boys and running the vacuum. – Brian & Amy, Arvada/Broomfield, CO
— Brian & Amy - Arvada/Broomfield, CO , Seller & Buyer
Denise was spot on in every respect to the sale of the current home and the purchase of my new home. She dealt with several issues with these purchases quickly and to a proper resolution. I would highly recommend Denise to all of my family and friends.
— Mark - Arvada, CO, Seller & Buyer
Denise is a highly professional, results oriented Realtor. The marketing of our home was beautiful and it sold in two weeks! Denise has a strong work ethic and her real estate expertise and attention to detail is unsurpassed. I would highly recommend Denise for any real estate needs.
— Lisa & Jeff - Superior, CO , Sellers
Denise was a delight to work with from start to finish. She understands the market, offers insight based on a wealth of knowledge, thinks creatively when confronted with a problem and follows up on each and every outstanding item. Along the way she is engaging, fun, thoughtful, full of energy and trustworthy.
— Deb - Arvada, CO , Seller & Buyer
We were so fortunate that friends recommended Denise to us. She’s a top-notch professional with impeccable integrity, and she cares about her clients and is a lovely person to boot. We couldn’t recommend her more highly!
We had six weeks to possibly find and close on a reasonably priced house, a minor miracle in this competitive market. Her dedication, industry contacts, and relationships with other agents gave us a huge advantage, plus we felt she was advocating for our best interests at every stage, with the expertise to do that effectively.
Being from out of state, we especially valued Denise’s local insight and market knowledge. She listened to what we wanted and actively searched for listings that matched. With her guidance, we were able to make decisions confidently, and we absolutely love our home and neighborhood.
— Chris & Crystal - Arvada, CO, Buyers
Worked with Denise to locate and purchase a home. I wasn’t sure about where I wanted to buy or much about the communities in the Denver and North Denver area. She spent much time making sure she understood what I was looking for and tailored the search until we were only looking at homes that met my criteria. We ended up finding two properties that were perfect. Either one would have been great. Denise negotiated the best deal on one of the properties. Couldn’t be happier with the entire process and home I’m now in!
— Kevin - Denver, CO , Buyer
Denise is everything that I could want in a realtor. But aside from all of her strengths, skills and expertise, she bases her business off of one simple approach. And that’s putting her clients first. On numerous occasions, Denise made it clear that we came first and that our happiness was at the top of her list. Not only does she possess the shrewd and savvy ability to “get the deal done” but the compassion she has for her clients is unmatched.
— Josh & Nicole - Broomfield, CO , Seller & Buyer
Denise gave simple, direct advice to prepare our condo for sale and her staging service highlighted the property’s best features. With the current market conditions we expected and received multiple offers and Denise was thorough but concise in explaining the differences between the offers. She was creative in constructing the proper language in our counter-offers to ensure our interests were protected. I would absolutely refer family and friends to Denise! – Stu & Annette, Arvada, CO

In my opinion Denise is the best and there is no way I would even consider anyone else. My situation more complicated than most should have been but she was there the whole way through.
— Dave Eubanks - Aurora, CO , Buyer
We met Denise at a Starbucks, we sat down and talked about our needs, about what we were looking for a home in Denver. Coming from Texas, the market here is very different. We have never lived win places with basements, that is cool. We had a very nice conversation, she gave us a folder with different neighborhoods information. She had researched some homes already of what we were looking for and we hit the road. Since that day we were in constant communication with Denise. We saw many, many homes, she is very knowledgeable and I was just feeling very confident about her comments, her observations and her opinions about homes, neighborhoods etc. Denise took us out on Saturdays and Sundays, we had several visits of homes in one day and it was exhausting at times, but she always had a smile and a positive attitude. When we decided on putting an offer on a house, she made it all happen. She would work late on our requests, making phone calls, writing emails, she was very involved on the inspection process, and the communication was always there. Via email, via text, or by phone Denise always returned our phone calls and made herself available to talk. She went the extra mile for us, to make us happy and to make sure that our transition from another state to Colorado was a nice one. I really enjoyed working with Denise and I would highly recommend her.
— Letty & Alfredo - Castle Pines, CO, Buyer
Working with Denise was such a pleasure. She is knowledgeable, proffessional, efficient, and is always working towards the goals of her clients. Absolutely the best agent we have worked with.
— Gwen & Chad - Golden CO , Seller & Buyer
I have worked with Denise twice. The first time, I moved to Denver from out of state. She was great to work with. I didn’t know the area at all. I told her what we were looking for with respect to size and style, as well as commute distance and neighborhood school quality. We found a great home that was exactly what we wanted for a good price. She took care of everything for us, which was fantastic as we were not around for most of the process. Last summer, my job relocated, so we had to leave Denver. Denise was our realtor again for the sale. She helped us with all the details. We cleaned and staged early in the week, put the home on the market on a Thursday evening, and within 3 days had multiple offers, well above our asking price. We even negotiated a rent back. It couldn’t have gone more smoothly. Denise is so good, I wish I could have taken her to California with me for my home search there. I will definitely use her again if I return to Colorado. She has set the bar incredibly high for any realtor I work with in the future. I highly recommend Denise. I have bought and sold 7 times and Denise is the best realtor I have EVER worked with.
— Leah & Aaron - Aurora, CO, Buyer & Seller
What people are saying……Denise is the best hands down. She takes care of each transaction as if it’s her only one. She won’t let you down and makes the stress of selling your home go away with her upbeat personality. – Michelle & Doug, Arvada, CO

We are writing to recommend Denise Duran-Marcum with the greatest regard and enthusiasm. So that you are aware that we are experienced buyers and sellers, we will start by pointing out that over the past 15 years, we have bought and sold six homes, each transaction occurring with a different agent due to changes in our geographic location.Throughout our last transaction, which included selling a home as well as purchasing a new home, Denise was our agent. Because we have experienced many various agents in the past, we can say with absolute certainty that Denise was far and away the nest agent we’ve ever had. It goes without saying that she is our “ first-choice” agent for life.
Here are some of the reasons why we are so committed to Denise. She is a consummate, experienced professional. She knows her business like the back of her hand. And that’s just for starters. In addition, we’d like to go so far as to provide ten reasons (and then some) why we are so committed to Denise. Upon every step of our journey as a seller or a buyer, Denise was:
1) fully prepared and one step ahead at all times
2) able to provide expert counsel at all times
3) constantly and readily available to us at all times
4) able to relay fast and accurate communication at all times 5) able to listen attentively to our wishes and needs at all time 6) fully responsive to our wishes and needs 7) warm, positive, and delightful to work with 8) clearly an expert in her field 9) knowledgable and professional in every way 10) trustworthy, honest and fair in her business practices
We can’t recommend Denise highly enough. We feel that Denise’s combination of her vibrant personality along with her knowledge, experience and professionalism are winning attributes. We entrusted our future to her, and we couldn’t be happier with our current home, thanks to Denise. The sale of our former home was also a winning situation for us, and that speaks for a lot in today’s economy. Working with Denise was win-win all the way around.
Lastly, Denise takes her job very seriously. She has an eye for detail and quality. She knows when to speak and when to observe. She has a talent for strategy and will fully prepare you to sell a home quickly and efficiently at the best price possible. She will also guide you through your transaction so that it is as graceful as possible. As compared to all the previous real estate agents we have worked with, well, there is no comparison. Denise is truly the nest agent we have ever had. We also hope she is the only agent we will ever need.
— Curt & Susan - Golden, CO, Seller & Buyer
Denise has a unique style of marketing that is second to none that I have worked with in the past. She goes the extra mile and works hard to earn your business again and again. I will use her again and have recommended her services to other friends and family.
— Todd - Arvada, CO, Seller
I worked with Denise on my home purchase in Arvada and I would highly recommend her. My experience was flawless. I’ve dealt with agents that want to show you everything whether it was a ft or not, but I felt that Denise was very quick to understand what I was looking for which meant that we rarely wasted time looking at properties that didn’t match my requirements. Additionally, she was always well aware of the inventory and well versed on the neighborhoods and communities. What impressed me most was Denise’s follow up and energy level. I could count on her to consistently go beyond the inventory reports and uncover the best value and ft for me. Always prepared and ready to go! It was truly a pleasure working with Denise.
