A better real estate experienceThe PorchLight Difference
There are only two things that matter when choosing a real estate company—the quality of the agent and the ease of your experience. At PorchLight, we pride ourselves on both fronts: pairing the educated and engaged agent you deserve with a professional and seasoned staff who provide you with stellar service. Watch this video to meet some of the people who make the difference.
Our History & Mission
PorchLight Real Estate Group was founded in 2005 by partners Amy Bachelder Bayer and Carol Freyer Bayer. Already successful real estate agents themselves, Amy & Carol saw a need for an agency that provided more personalized, comprehensive service and more support for both agents and their clients. What began as a two-woman team is now an elite real estate group of more than 150 thoughtful, knowledgeable agents, providing a complete suite of agency services that are perfectly matched to each individual client.
Over the years, independent, 100%-women-owned PorchLight has received numerous accolades, including being named to The Denver Post’s Top Workplaces for four years in a row; and Denver Business Journal’s Top Women-Owned Companies, DBJ’s Fastest-Growing Companies, and DBJ’s Top Residential Real Estate Companies—all for two years in a row. The company was also included on the 2016 Inc. 5000, CoBiz’s Top 100 Women-Owned Companies, and Amy and Carol were the only Coloradans included on the prestigious Inman 101 in December 2015.
Our mission is to create a positive culture with the most knowledgeable, principled real estate professionals who consistently provide exceptional service to every client and give back to our community.

We Never Stop LearningPorchLight University
One of PorchLight’s biggest differentiators is the education level of our agents. We pride ourselves on providing only the most highly educated agents to clients, which is why PorchLight is one of the only agencies to have our own in-house continuing education university. With our team of accredited instructors, you can earn more than 40 CREC credit hours from PorchLight-taught classes alone.
Our comprehensive education program, PorchLight University, includes second-to-none market education—in the form of our Certified Market Expert designation—which empowers our agents to be actual market experts. We also offer classes in the more technical aspects of real estate, to ensure our agents write better contracts and are expert negotiators.
All Part of the Deal
Most real estate agents have to pay for and manage their own services—or their agency charges them for even the most basic tasks. But at PorchLight, all these services are included “standard” for every single agent and listing.
With PorchLight, you can put your listings on the market with full service in less than two hours of your time—PorchLight handles everything for you. Our premarket services include staging by our in-house professional designers and HDReal photography to put your listings in their best light.
Our unique open house program means that your listing can be held open by a knowledgable PorchLight agent even when you’re not available. Plus, we handle all the signage so you aren’t wasting Saturday mornings lugging around signs!
PorchLight Connect is a powerful combination of intranet, CRM, and integrated MLS search, that puts you light years ahead of the competition. It helps you run your entire business easily and effectively with minimal overhead and training required.
Whether it’s our attention-grabbing monthly postcards, Generator gifts, or stunning listing brochures, our in-house, award-winning creative team is always helping you and your business look good. We’re also event specialists, helping you plan parties, fundraisers and gatherings that bring your people together and generate more referrals.
The core of our in-house relocation department is our membership in Leading Real Estate Companies of the World (Leading RE). Leading RE is the largest independent relocation network and membership is reserved for only the top independent agencies.
We meet our agents where they are in their business, and effectively coach them to help them see consistent year-over-year business increases and reach their personal goals. Whether you’re looking to grow your business or just looking for a little more balance in the business you already have, we can help you get there.
If you want a complete suite of agency services and supportive culture that enables you to actually sell more in less time, while providing incomparable service to every client, PorchLight is for you.
