"We want to thank both Dee and Becky for a job WELL DONE! When we finally decided to list our downtown Denver loft - following years of market conversations with Kentwood City Properties - they were quick to deliver their thoughts on marketing the property and getting it sold fast. Their attention to detail in staging the unit, their efforts in facilitating over 50 showings in less than 2 months and their consistent communication throughout the process is UNMATCHED when compared to other real estate groups. Our listing, although less in price than their other marketed properties, was treated as ‘gold’…and, when it did sell, the closing was effortless. As an out-of-town seller, they made the transaction easy, each step of the way. Thank you Dee & Kentwood City Properties!
-Jenny & Kevin Roberts
"Carolyn and I were very impressed with the professionalism shown by you and Becky in the sale of 3475. We were pleased with the sale price and delighted the house sold and closed so quickly. Yeah for that! I would be happy to refer any prospective metro Denver buyers/sellers I run across to you.
"When we decided to start looking for a home I was very apprehensive, hearing about how difficult and exhausting the process can be. Dee and Becky made the process a delightful search ending in a home we love in the price we wanted without any drama! They were patient, never pressuring us, educating, we learned a lot about the process, and we have some very humorous tales of the journey (basements we couldn’t stand up in, pink bedrooms the size of a pantry, and a dog bowl matching our own – it was a sign!)."
-Geneva Kowalski & Bill Catlin
"Dee, thanks so much. Your good sense and great communication made this long-distance business much easier than it might have been with a less experienced person. I am hoping that my great age will prevent my ever having another real estate transaction but I have already enthusiastically recommended you to friends and will continue to do so.....
"We just wanted to express our gratitude to you both for your help on the sale of our home. We loved it here but were ready to move to something new and can't believe how fortunate we were to find a buyer who is as excited to be here as we were when we moved in. After closing we marveled at how smoothly everything has gone. It's been a very pleasant experience and we thank you for that.
-Heather Kauffman & Greg Willis
"Our experience with Kentwood City, Dee and Becky has been nothing but excellent. From our purchase on a Christmas Eve over 10 years ago to the smooth and seamless sale today. You guys are the best. We wish you continued success in the future."
-Marl & Kathy Winninger
"Dee and Becky are great to work with. They were very transparent and didn’t ever leave me in the dark wondering what was happening. The minute you knew something I knew about it. All of your resources were top notch. From the electrician you pulled in to correct some things at my old place last minute, to the mortgage broker you referred me to, to the professional photographer and marketing for the sale of my home everything was done at the highest level. If the both of you were unavailable (which wasn’t the case 99% of the time) you pulled in other agents to step in to keep things rolling. Overall, I was very satisfied on both transactions and couldn’t think of another company I would rather work with in the future. "
"When you’re talking about Denver Real Estate, there’s only one name you’ll ever need to know. Dee Chirafisi. Dee and her exceptional team are the most experienced and diligent group you can work with. They got my loft listed and sold in nearly 2 weeks. Buying or selling your home isn’t always a smooth process, but this professional group is outstanding and makes it look easy. "
"Last August, 2014 we listed our Duplex in West Highlands and had no success in receiving any offers despite over 25 showings in 3 months. We decided to re-list in January, 2015 and interviewed multiple brokers prior to making a decision. We chose you as a team because of your professionalism, process, and areas of specialty. We loved that you both have built such positive reputations over the years as well as Kentwood’s process to show all new upcoming listings to your respective colleagues prior to going live. The Outcome: First day of listing… 10 Showings, 3 Offers, all $10K above asking price !! We couldn't be more pleased with the results delivered and will continue to recommend you both to everyone we know. Thank you so much for everything; it was a pleasure working with you!
A sincere "thanks" for all you have done,
-Krista & Arran Porter
"My experience with Dee and Becky in late 2014 of selling my house was perfection. The listing was easy. The timing was very convenient. A beautiful brochure was prepared. The closing was simple and my house sold very quickly. I am a big fan of these two masters of real estate!!!! "
"Dee did a great job finding us the house we wanted in short order. She took the time to understand exactly what we were looking for and had an amazing knowledge of what was available in our preferred areas of LoDo, LoHi and Riverfront. Her targeted approach allowed us to find a great place after only seeing a handful of properties. Dee was fun and friendly to work with and a total pro. Very much on top of every detail...from beginning through closing. She is the agent to use when buying/selling downtown real estate."
-Hilary Anderson & Rick Schafer
"As first-time homebuyers, we were nervous and intimidated by the process. But Dee's knowledge, attention to detail and patience put us at ease and made us feel informed and empowered. During our first meeting, she quickly honed in on exactly what was important to us with regards to our new home and we left feeling like she "got us." Afterward, she worked quickly to send us listings and set up a day of showings. On our first day looking at properties, Dee showed us about ten different homes, and she was careful to include a range of properties so we could get a feeling for what was available to us. Much to our surprise, we ended up finding a home we loved and putting in an offer that first day. We attribute this quick find to Dee's perceptiveness about what we wanted and her knowledge of the Denver market. In addition, her strong relationships and great reputation in the real estate community worked to our advantage because she knew the builder of our home, helping to make the bidding and closing process go smoothly.
During our home-buying journey, Dee and her colleague Becky were in constant communication with us. Their availability and willingness to answer any question big or small made the process almost completely stress free. We ended up finding our dream home much more quickly and easily than we ever expected thanks to Dee and Becky's hard work and expertise. Although we won't be moving anytime soon because we love our new house, we look forward to working with Dee again in the future and we recommend her to anyone who is in the market to buy. Thank you Dee. "
-Tom & Melissa Viola and Chowder
"Dee: Mary and I chose to list our house with you for two reasons. First, your own experience has been so successful that we felt we would benefit from it. Second, you have assembled a team of realtors and staff that is the best on the city. We thought they would bring a lot to the table as well. In both cases, we were not disappointed. "
-Mary & Chris Ramel
"We recently purchased a brownstone in Riverfront and are very happy about this property. After viewing many downtown and Cherry Creek listings we knew we wanted a brownstone because of the location, quality, and design of these properties. Thanks, to Dee's patience, persistence and inside knowledge she was able to find us the perfect one. There was only one brownstone listed when we started our search, but she managed to show us two more that we're not listed at the time. Through hard work, a lot of patience, writing letters to the HOA, and sharing with other real estate company's two other properties became available and one of them was exactly what we wanted. Thanks, Dee, we could not have done it without you. "
-Mary Ann & Chris Walter
"I worked with Dee and team to secure my home, a gem in Wash Park. Even though the market is fast paced, and the location has limited availability, we were able to expeditiously bring the real estate process to a close. Becky’s attention to detail during contract & scheduling brought us to success without skipping a beat. Thank you for taking me as a client. "
"Thank you for the terrific job you and your team did for us in selling our property. You were professional, efficient & effective every step of the way. Next time we need a broker, I will surely give you a call. "
"In any market moving a million dollar plus property is challenging, in this market it can be almost impossible; unless you’re working with the right team. Choosing to sell a home in a tough market is a complicated decision, but none of that matters if you don’t work with the right broker, and Dee Chirafisi and her team at Kentwood City Properties are that right team. Dee’s approach to marketing high end real estate is effective and painless for the sellers. You have enough to worry about, and plenty to pay attention to, so working with the right broker who can truly handle the rest helps position your property to be viewed by all of the right buyers not just some of them. And then when you have that right interested buyer you want to know your working with a pro who garners the respect of her profession, and the expertise to back it up. Dee is that person, and we wholeheartedly recommend her for your next real estate transaction. "
-Brad & Margaret Buchanan
"Our decision to work with Dee in selling our house was driven by the importance we placed on wanting to select a Broker who we thought could really get the job done, especially in light of today’s real estate market challenges. We wanted to work with someone whom we believed would effectively create a buzz about our property, resulting in multiple showings and a reasonably quick sale. Dee and her team delivered on all accounts. After interviewing three Brokers from different agencies, we selected Dee based on her impeccable reputation & phenomenal success story within the Denver marketplace. Within the first two weeks, more than 100 agents and brokers toured our property and we began and maintained an average
of 2 to 3 showings per week. Our home was a million plus dollar property and in today’s market, these numbers are very difficult to achieve. In less than 90 days we received a great offer from one of three interested and qualified parties. Three weeks later, our house was SOLD! Overall, this was the most stress free real estate transaction we have ever been involved in. We owe all of this to Dee! "
-Jon Mooney & Lon Weingart
"We have used Dee to buy and sell two lofts in LoDo as well as a home in the Country Club and would never use anyone else for real estate needs in Denver. Her knowledge of LoDo and the other key Denver neighborhoods and her experience in the Denver market are second to none. She was patient and insightful as we went through the process of deciding to move out of downtown and searching for the right place, and we always appreciated her candid insights about value, pricing and the feel of each neighborhood and home we toured. In the end we found a perfect house that we love and at her urging acted on it at just the right time. She is exceedingly responsive and is always focused on getting the best results for her clients. Her amazingly positive and enthusiastic attitude make it a joy to work with her, and her unmatched experience & professionalism make the home buying/selling experience as easy as possible. We can’t say enough good things! "
-John & Robyn Zolman
"While we had been considering selling our home for some time, we were reluctant given the current real estate trends. We had spoken with other realtors who talked of doom and gloom and actually refused to list our home at what we knew it should bring. After meeting with Dee we knew that she was the right person. She is on the job 24/7, very professional, she loves what she does and it shows in the results. She had a contract on our home in FIVE days; she left no stone unturned in finding us the perfect home to buy and was available throughout the complex process. She
introduced us to the best lenders and went above and beyond in our best interests. We highly recommend that you give Dee a call if you are considering selling or buying a home."
-Mikkel & Catherine Saks
"People told us how lucky we were to sell our loft in these tough economic times. It wasn't luck, it was the great fortune of using Dee Chirafisi and her Kentwood City team. They are the most connected, knowledgeable and professional organization we have used in our 30 years of home ownership. Every detail is covered with aplomb and great care. This is a first class organization, and the results prove it. "
-Oliver & Lisa Knowlton
"We were referred to Dee by a dear friend who found her first home with Dee. We are so grateful for that referral— working with Dee made a huge difference in our first-time home-buying experience! Dee’s extensive knowledge of the Denver market was invaluable. Dee also was the best negotiator and advisor— we felt very confident about the decisions we made with Dee on our side. Further, Dee and her awesome assistant Becky provided us with fantastic referrals. We used each and every one, too, from the home inspector to the movers and hardwood floor refinisher. Dee’s excellent professional reputation and generous spirit truly made our first home a dream home. Dee also helped facilitate a huge step in our lives: not only did we find our home, but also we got engaged during the process! It is wonderful to have the memory of starting our lives together as a married couple in our new home, and Dee was a significant part of that. We highly recommend Dee, whether you are a first-time buyer or have already been around the home-buying block. Dee and Becky are the best! "
-Nicole Salamander & Chris Irby
"Dee was amazing through the listing and sales process of my home. Dee was aggressive in marketing my property, going above and beyond what was expected. During a difficult real estate market Dee gave me excellent advice regarding the current market, the listing price, staging and eventually in negotiating the sale of my home. I firmly believe Dee guided me to getting the best possible price for my home in a difficult market. Dee was not only professional, knowledgeable but also understanding and empathic. I would highly recommend Dee Chirafisi to be your realtor."
"I have been in the real estate business for 30 years, you have done an excellent job on the sale of my home, you were on your game on all aspects from the sale to closing. "
"Thank YOU! I feel good about the outcome and the process to get there; it was very uneventful, which I very much appreciate. I needed someone who would smooth it out for me, and you and your team certainly did. I will not hesitate to recommend you guys if another opportunity comes along. "
"Dee is a woman with patience and tenacity! Which is what it took for my husband and I to find our new home. Yes, she has knowledge, yes; she has contacts; yes, she knows the city; yes, she understands the financial side of things … more importantly, she didn’t try to push us into anything she thought was right for us so much as she did the legwork and allowed us to walk into the place that fit us just right. Dee worked hard to successfully sell our existing property and then to help us find our new home. She is personable, reliable and diligent. You can’t go wrong.
-Brenda & Cliff Gilbert
"Dee and Becky are truly the best. They made the process of buying my loft smooth and effortless for me every step of the way. She was always just a phone call away and I really appreciated her immediate response every time. I will highly recommend Dee to any buyer or seller. She knows exactly what to do to get the sale closed. I can't express how happy I am that she helped me. I love my new place! "
"Thanks very much for all your work on this sale. We been through this process many times before and you two are at the top of our list for your service and follow through. We will absolutely recommend you to our friends in Denver. "
-Chris Rapp & Kendra Keene
"I made a decision to purchase a downtown Denver loft/condo unit and contacted Dee based on a recommendation from a friend. I gave Dee our price range and preferred location and within only 2 or 3 tours we had an accurate up to date perspective of the market. The data she provided along with her immense knowledge of the market made me feel comfortable making a decision. She was able to get a feel for our taste and hot buttons and direct us to the right buildings that met our needs. We are very pleased with the outcome and I would highly recommend Dee!
"It was a pleasure working with Dee. She was knowledgeable of the market and was able to negotiate well on our behalf. Dee listened well to our needs and concerns by communicating with us often and responding quickly. She and her staff were warm, personable and highly professional. I highly recommend Dee!"
-Vaun & Barry Swanson
"Dee, I have been meaning to touch base with you to extend a HUGE thank you for making this deal happen. The whole process was taxing and you and Becky did a great job on keeping me level and keeping the buyer’s interested throughout. Please know that I will recommend you guys to any potential house buyers and sellers I run into. I look forward to connecting with you guys in the near future! (Short Sale) "
"Dee and I worked together for over a year. I wanted a door person building with services. The new developments were to expensive and risky because of the current financial times so we looked at over 30 condominium units for purchase many with out a doorman. We finally settled on a full service building and placed multiple bids on various units until one of the owners meet our price target. Thru out this long ordeal Dee was always cheerful, knowledgeable, and professional in everyway. I am a commercial real estate professional and would highly recommend and have
recommended Dee to others. "
"We first met Dee when she represented the seller of the downtown condominium unit we purchased in 2005. Her professionalism at that time plus having seen her name involved in many sales of downtown residential real estate in the five years since then, put her on the short list of brokers we interviewed when it came time to sell our unit in 2010. Her obvious knowledge of the market and her comfortable way of dealing with us led us to hire her. And we're so glad we did. She diligently applied her professionalism to the sale of our unit and treated us with respect and understanding throughout the entire process. Perhaps most importantly, in a time when real estate values were in question, Dee obtained a sales price for us that we were very happy with. We highly recommend her. "
-Nancy & Steve Clodfelter
"I really enjoyed working with Dee. She is a consummate professional and she took the time to know me and understand what I was looking for. She knows the properties and market so well that she was able to find the perfect property for me in a relatively short period of time."
"Dee sold us our downtown condominium and then Dee sold our country club home in a turbulent and slow market. She is both knowledgeable about facts and strategy and intuitive and creative. She continually discovered new approaches to market our old home and help in our new one. She has great communication skills. My husband and I both felt listened to and heard. "
"As 2009 comes to a close I want to thank you for getting two deals done in 2009!!!! Both the purchase and sale transactions were deals that I think most would have said can’t happen for a bunch of reasons. Your professional and tenacious approach paid off. Thanks so much and I look forward to working with you in 2010.
"Dee Chirafisi is the go to professional in the real estate market. She has assisted us and friends we have recommended her, in reaching real estate needs. Good or bad market Dee finds a way to make your dream a reality. She takes the time to really look at your current home, if you are a seller, and gives an educated opinion, not a guess, on its true value. As a buyer, she listens to your needs and meets them. She shows you the property that fits those needs. We would never hesitate recommending Dee. Her knowledge of the overall Denver market is invaluable.
-Jeane & Gary Manchester
"Working with Dee made the purchase of my loft fun, efficient and reassuring. No one knows downtown Denver as well as Dee. She reads exactly what you are looking for and has an ability to find just the right properties for you. She pulled together all aspects for the transaction making it efficient and stress-free. I wouldn't work with anyone besides Dee and her team."
"I had an extremely successful experience working with Dee Chirafisi. She and her team brought unparalleled market knowledge to my recent purchase in the Volker Lofts. She listened well to the needs of my family, did detailed pre-work and brought to bear Kentwood's extensive history in the market to deliver a slate of great properties for viewing. Once we found the right one, they provided thoughtful and effective negotiation support, a clean process to a rapid closing, and extensive advice and support on service providers from inspection to design. Dee has been a key part of the in-town real estate market for many years; as a client, I reaped the benefits of her extensive knowledge, history, and relationships.
"We met Dee in 2006 when we were thinking about moving from the foothills to LoDo. She was very empathetic and helpful about our choice to buy one of the Art House townhomes. Her knowledge about the project and attention to detail helped make the building and buying process a fun and fact-filled experience. She cared about us as individuals and we have become close friends. Our experience with Dee has been the most positive experience we have ever had with a real estate agent. Dee is unequaled as a real estate professional. She always puts her clients interests before her own. Dee will always be our first choice to buy or list Denver real estate."
-Paula & Rob Grey
"Thanks much Dee. I made no mistake by not even interviewing any other realtors. You guys are the best I've ever dealt with. All my best to you and your team! "
