I grew up in Cleveland, Ohio, land of the six-month winter. It was my desire to see the sun more often that led me to Colorado — that and a job offer in my then-field of consulting. But after spending several years in the business, my penchant for the nine to five was fading fast. The words, “do what you love and you will always be happy” ruminated in my ear — ironically words from a lecture put on by a job I didn’t love.
At the time, I was looking to buy my first home, and I spent my free time studying real estate and burying my nose in-house magazines. After countless Saturdays spent driving around the city looking for open houses, and the love-a-first-sight relationship I eventually found with my home in the Highlands area, a real estate career was born. I finally found my true passion.
For the past fourteen years I have been buying and selling in the Denver area, and over time, I have become a Denver neighborhood expert. I gather information the old-fashioned way: I eat at the local restaurants, find the little-hidden secrets in each neighborhood, frequent the many parks around Denver with my dog, as well as studying market trends, architectural styles, and keeping well informed of the Denver housing market. It’s this information, along with a dogged desire to match my clients with their specific property needs, that makes me a valuable person to have in one’s corner. I maximize time by concentrating only on the properties that best fit your spoken and unspoken needs — from layout to price range to walking distance to the nearest organic bakery. With sellers, I realize the investment ramifications of their sale, keep tempo with our changing economic climate, and offer marketing options that are second to none that I have access to through PorchLight Real Estate Group.
I dive head first into each client and get as excited as they do with the purchase or sale of a home, taking personal care and ownership over each transaction. Buying a house is like getting married. Cold feet are okay but if you’re not ready to walk down the aisle then you need to keep looking — and I understand that the process takes time. Selling a home is like giving your journals over to a stranger — it hurts a little. Housing decisions aren’t just business, they’re personal. That being said, it’s important to me to help people make smart and financially sound housing decisions. So while I have an eye for envisioning a diamond in the rough, I know when to walk away from a property that might financially drain my client.
My greatest real estate accomplishment is that I have been named a 5280 Five Star Agent Award Winner every year since 2010. It is such a compliment to be nominated by my clients for such an honor. My clients have supported my business and I wouldn’t be where I am without them.
I have seen it all in my career: all of the emotion, the financial strategies, the disappointments, and excitement. I know the intricacies that go into the real estate process, and it’s my job to iron it all out into a smooth transaction — a job I am proud to say I do well. I am a Certified Negotiations expert, and I use these skills on a daily basis. Add to that my continuing education in marketing, my knowledge of the Denver area, and my diligence as your representative, and you’ll start to get a picture of what I stand for: the right house, at the right price, for the right person.
"We could not be more grateful that we had Anne Singleton to represent us in buying our new home. It was a complex purchase and we couldn't have made it happen without Anne's expertise and persistence. She was on top of everything. She's reliable and resourceful, and an expert in the local market. She was a great communicator throughout the process and made us feel like we were her only priority. Anne ALWAYS had our best interest in mind from day one and went above and beyond in more ways than we thought possible. There is no one that we would rather have on our side when buying or selling a home. If you want the best, Anne is it!"
"Anne helped us purchase a townhouse in Denver as a second home. Not living in Denver ourselves, we needed an agent who knew the area and was a good communicator. She provided us with excellent advise on every aspect of the market and took the time to really learn what we wanted. Her vast knowledge of the area and real estate market was critical to our success in finding exactly what we were looking for. Throughout the closing process she was diligent, thorough, thoughtful, professional and most of all very pleasant to work with. We can not recommend her enough!"
"We recently worked with Anne Singleton on both buying a new house and selling our existing property. Anne was fantastic on both sides. She is experienced, knowledgeable, professional and also really fun to work with! We were impressed with the entire team throughout the process, from the stager to the office staff. We were able to get a really fantastic house and I don't believe that would have been possible in this challenging Denver real estate market without Anne there to help us! She was also able to guide us with the selling process in order to ensure maximal profit. We loved working with Anne and would highly recommend her and the PorchLight group!"
Buyer & Seller
"Anne rocks! She knows the market and is extremely professional. She negotiated on our behalf and guided us through the process with clear and accurate communication. She provided top notch recommendations for local service professionals and helped communicate with the HOA. Whether you are a first-time buyer or a multiple home owner Anne made this experience easy and remarkably stress-free."
"Anne has been my realtor since 2003, helping with 9 transactions since then. She's the most transparent, honest and respectfully consultative realtor I could imagine. Have never and would never use anyone else."
"I would highly recommend PorchLight Real Estate Group. Our realtor Anne Singleton was amazing! She is professional, knowledgeable, and really fun to work with. Anne and the PorchLight team were always available for any questions or concerns that we had throughout the process. We had a great experience with everyone we worked with. From the stager to the office staff. Anne is very experienced and really knows her stuff. If you are looking to get a great house in this crazy Denver market or sell your existing house, you can count on her to get the job done."
"Quickly relocating to a new area can be very stressful. It can be difficult to decide which neighborhood will be the best fit as well as what traffic patterns will most affect a commute to work.
Anne made this process as easy as possible for us. Making herself available when we needed her - as we were in a time crunch. She showed us a variety of neighborhoods and was willing to cross-cross town to look at "just one more" place on an already long day.
Her involvement did not end at closing. She was available to help us find locksmiths, mattresses, dinner, Home Depot etc. This greatly helped us move in and settle quickly. Even more importantly she remained available, involved and supportive with a few post-closing issues - staying with us until issues were resolved.
I would highly recommend her for buying or selling a residence in Denver."
"Anyone looking to buy a home should give Anne a call. She is the perfect balance of aggressive and compassionate advocate. My husband and I wanted completely opposite things in a home, and she was able to filter through our wish list against available inventory to save us time and effort in a competitive neighborhood. When things got hairy during the process, she was there to keep us focused and on track, while tirelessly problem-solving on our behalf. And when we got off track, her gentle prodding kept us from missing out on opportunities. I can honestly say she is a real estate rock star and we have our home because of her."

"I would absolutely recommend Anne Singleton to anyone looking to buy or sell a home. My husband and I were immediately impressed with her communication skills, as she responded to our inquiry within a minute! After having a bad experience with another realtor group, we were relieved to have found someone who really knew the Denver market, was an experienced negotiator, friendly, attentive and a real go getter! I had no idea, before working with Anne, how important it was to hire someone with Anne’s level of expertise. She really goes above and beyond for her clients and was a pleasure to work with."
"Anne Singleton is absolutely amazing! I refer to her as Wonder Woman with a magic wand. She gets things done! I've bought and sold a number of homes over the years and Anne is by far the best real estate agent I have every worked with.
I listed my house just as the market started to slow down in my area and Anne absolutely went above and beyond in every regard to get it sold. We weren't getting showings and she made a suggestion for a minor remodel. The house went under contract days after. There were inspection items that needed to be addressed - some simple and some potentially expensive. She has contractors she works with frequently who did great work at extremely reasonable prices - and she coordinated all of it which meant I didn't have to during my standard business work hours. When I thanked her effusively and repeatedly her response was always "That's my job."
Anne was 100% responsive throughout the process. Her expertise is beyond impressive, she communicates extremely well, she's a very effective negotiator, and she worked incredibly diligently to get my home sold. I know she has a number of other active clients, but she somehow always managed to make me feel like I was her primary focus. Thank you Anne!"
"As cliche as it sounds, it is hard to describe how incredible and flawless our experience was while working with Anne. She was our own personal Wonder Woman! My husband and I stepped into the relationship with Anne as our buyers agent after having a very unpleasant experience with our selling agent. It was astonishing how quickly she was able to convince us that buying a house does not in fact, have to suck. From day one, she was timely, set expectations, and made the process as carefree as possible for us. Each day we received a check in to remind us what was due or to just take the day off and relax. She exceeded every expectation we ever had and has set the bar high for other agents out there. She connected, she listened, and she delivered. Most importantly, we felt like she cared. In such a stressful event, it was so refreshing to work with a truly genuine person. We are forever grateful."
Kyle and Gabi Plimack
"In 2009 Anne helped me purchase my townhome and had great experience so when looking to sell, she was my first call. It was the best decision I could have made with the attention, service and speed in which she was able to handle the sale of my home.
My situation was unique in that I now live in California and was selling my rental in Colorado. There was a tenant moving out, repairs that needed to be made, installation of new appliances and other small issues from it being a rental the last 5 years. Anne handled EVERYTHING from scheduling handymen/repairs, being there for installations, ensuring everything was handled and looking top notch.
Then came the staging, photography and listing which, including all repairs, was done within 3 weeks! During the entire process, from tenants moving out to signed contracts I never had to travel back to Colorado to handle a single detail which is incredible.
Her attention to detail and help getting everything perfect, including correct listing price, helped me to have an accepted offer in 4 days for asking price!
Anne is amazing in her customer service, responsiveness and going the extra mile to make sure things are handled and done right. If you are looking to buy or sell I couldn't imagine someone better to be your partner through it."
"We really appreciated Anne’s efforts to sell our home, and we would recommend here without hesitation to anyone selling their home in the Denver area. She did a great job for us!"
"My agent, Anne Singleton, went above and beyond to assist with my purchase. I reside in Missouri and was purchasing a home from afar for my daughter. Being in the commercial and residential real estate market in St. Louis, I work with agents each and every day in Missouri. I can honestly say that Anne is the best agent I have ever had the pleasure of working with. She was in constant contact with me and helped my daughter find the perfect house. She even assisted with handling some items that had nothing to do with the sale but were a huge assistance to me in getting the house ready for move in.
On top of all the wonderful ways she helped, she had to tolerate one of the WORST real estate companies (TRELORA) that I have ever encountered. And that's saying a lot given my businesses in St. Louis. They were inexperienced, incompetent and all around a nightmare to deal with. If it wasn't for Anne this deal would have fallen apart many times due to such a horrid company (they even lost my escrow deposit for days!). TRELORA should be put out of business. I can't say enough BAD things about TRELORA or enough GREAT things about ANNE and Porchlight Real Estate."
"Anne has helped me both both sell and buy a home. She works harder, smarter and more efficiently than any agent I have ever met. My last purchase was not a typical transaction and she helped me navigate all the details and unusual requirements, while also quickly preparing my last home to be put on the market. She has an amazing ability to assess the needs and preferences of her clients, which, for me, has made the process of buying and selling a house much easier. I trust and recommend Anne for buying or selling any home."
"Anne Singleton is a fabulous realtor! She recently helped us buy our new home in the Denver Highlands area. Anne is incredibly knowledgeable about the area and was able to give us all of the information we needed to make all of those huge decisions along the way. She helped us negotiate a counter-offer and made sure to include the details that mattered to us in our contract. We needed a fast close and Anne recommended an amazing mortgage broker who had us ready to close in just a few weeks. Anne was calm, cool, and collected as problems arose in the inspection and with the HOA. She eased our fears, fought for us every step of the way, and solved each and every issue with ease. I have already recommended Anne to some of my best friends moving to the area and I would recommend her to anyone looking for a true expert in the Denver real estate market!"
"Anne Singleton, a realtor with Porch Light Realty, was AMAZING. She did such an amazing job for us. She had our 900k home sold within 23 days of being on the market. PorchLight's process is second to none. I will never sell or buy a house with another realtor or company in Denver. We also bought a house at the same time. The attention to detail is unparalleled. WE LOVED our experience during one of the most stressful times of our lives. Great Job!!!"
"Anne Singleton was recommended to us by acquaintances who had worked with her, and we were happy to have her assistance. She took great care of us as we bought our first home ever and matched us with a broker who was equally outstanding, making the process incredibly easy."
"We can't say enough about Anne Singleton and her crew at PorchLight. Anne went above and beyond for us. We could not be more grateful to her and her team. Every step of the process was top notch. We sold our 900k house with in 23 days, which even in the Denver Market, is difficult. She helped up buy a house during this process as well. Her professionalism and support are beyond expectations. Kudos to her! She will always be my first call for buying and selling property. THANK YOU ANNE and PORCHLIGHT!!!"
"We have used Anne Singleton's services at PorchLight realty a number of times. She is thorough and readily available. When it comes to real estate she is a rockstar. We highly recommend her services to our friends and family."
Linda and William
"My wife and I have used Anne's services for over 10 years, involving multiple properties and transactions in the Denver area. Anne is very thorough, and highly skilled with phenomenal communications. She is quick to address potential troublesome issues that might creep up in the real estate process, and keeps a patient reading of the pulse of the situation. She knows the Denver market well. We have found her to be wise and personally attentive to our real estate experiences. I cannot recommend her services enough."
