Real estate is a fun and interesting business to be in; it's fast paced, high adrenaline and every transaction has something different. I love it! Helping people buy or sell one of their biggest purchases in life is very exciting and rewarding. I believe that in this industry I need to provide the highest and best service possible. I work hard to guide buyers and sellers toward their goals by educating them on strategy, the market, their obligations, and potential pitfalls or benefits of any decision. It's a team effort throughout the process that leads to lifelong relationships. That's the best part - meeting all the people that in one way or another become part of my life.
I'm originally from Riga, Latvia. Through the love of basketball I was fortunate to come to Colorado and play for the Buffaloes in Boulder. Once my playing career was over, coaching seemed the obvious next step. I have always liked helping people, either by coaching them to become better players or educating them to make the best possible real estate decision.
I could not be happier with what I do!
"We highly recommended Dina Piterniece and the Porch Light team. This was our first time selling and buying a home with a real estate agent. Dina was wonderful! She took the time to explain exactly what we should expect. We were never surprised and never felt in the dark. She kept us informed and always returned our calls/texts/emails promptly. She was always positive and we loved working with her. During stressful times she would check in to see how we were doing. She worked fast and was always on top of things which is hard to do in this competitive Denver market.
Because we found our dream house sooner than anticipated, Dina performed miracles to sell our home quickly. She was able to reschedule the cleaning services, home staging and Open House (on a Holiday weekend). It was because of her commitment to selling our house and the fast work of the Porch Light team that our offer was accepted and we sold our house. If you are looking for a real estate agent that really cares, give Dina a call!"

"We had a great home-buying experience with Dina Piterniece. She was friendly and easy to work with, and always made us feel like we were her priority. We ended up seeing around fifteen to twenty houses before we finally found the right one for us, and she never made us feel rushed. She wanted us to find the house we loved and she was our advocate from start to finish. We are so happy where we are now. Her relationship with us continues as she is truly interested in knowing how we are settling in to our new home and new life in Colorado. We believe we have a friend in Dina, and are grateful for such a positive experience with PorchLight Real Estate Group."
"We loved working with Dina Piterniece at PorchLight. She was extremely helpful and patient with us throughout our entire house search process. Dina was responsive in setting up showings when new listings came on the market and knowledgable about the neighborhoods we were interested in. Once we decided on a property and went under contract, she made sure the process went as smoothly and stress-free as possible. We definitely recommend Dina and wouldn't hesitate to work with her again in the future!"

"I would recommend PorchLight Real Estate to anyone looking to buy or sell. I worked with Dina Piterniece, and she was top-notch to work with. She worked with me remotely, as I had relocated to Montana, and was able to answer every question and meet all my needs. Being a first-time seller, I had many apprehensions about selling my home, but Dina took the time to walk me through every step of the process and eased each of my concerns. This process was first class from start to finish, and I wouldn't hesitate to call Dina tomorrow if I had any more real estate needs in Colorado. Thanks again to Dina, and the entire PorchLight Group."
"Dina was absolutely wonderful to work with. Dina is extremely educated and walked us through every step of the way in this very difficult market to be buying in. We were extremely pleased by her and would recommend her to any one who wants to sell or purchase their home. We were dealing with another company before her who was unable to get us in touch with a lender that could meet our needs and pretty much told us we would not be able to buy a home, so when we found Dina, we were very glad we hired PorchLight and her team. Our home buying experience was incredibly smooth and feel that Dina’s experience influenced such a positive result. PorchLight did a superb job and I would not hire any other company to represent us. Dina has also has remained in contact with us after we closed and we have never experienced such a personal connection with a real estate agent, you just don’t get that anymore, with the exception PorchLight."
"Dina Piterniece of PorchLight Realty was my selling realtor and -- quite simply -- is the finest realtor I have ever engaged.
Bottom line first: Dina sold my home for the highest overall price ever paid in my Golden, Colorado neighborhood. This outstanding sales result is made even more impressive on a square footage basis since my home was the smallest model in the development.
Given the record price paid for my 40+ year old home, the buyer was very demanding with the inspection objections. Dina superbly negotiated the "must have vs. nice to have" objections which greatly reduced my stress and out of pocket $$$ relating to the sale. Despite the record sales price, Dina's hard work and overall knowledge of Golden home values also resulted in a spot on "Win/Win" appraised value (sales price = appraised value).
Overall, the sale of my home couldn't have gone better! Dina, along with the entire PorchLight team and related processes are the reasons why. Dina is friendly, hard working, sharp, and responsive which is a winning combination for success. It is rare to find a real estate professional who exceeds all expectations during a sales transaction. Dina exceeded each and every one of my lofty expectations!!
Thank you Dina and thank you PorchLight Realty!"
"I don't know where to begin with our first time home buying experience with Dina Piterniece and PorchLight. We were in an incredibly unique and time sensitive situation that was sprung on us in a really busy time in our lives. We first met Dina walking through a random open house and we instantly connected. She went above and beyond at every single opportunity, and really worked as an advocate for us. She explained every step in detail, warned us about things that we would have never noticed or thought about, and ultimately put us in a first home that we absolutely love.
Although she never let on, we know she took time out of her personal life to make sure we were taken care of and we won't forget. I was blown away by how accessible she was and knowledgeable and we appreciated the casual approach vs the formal approach she has as well. As long as Dina is around we won't need to worry about our realtor needs for buying or selling as we've found ours. Thank you Dina for all you did for us!"

"Dina was very professional and a pleasure to work with. She was very patient with me as I am a very picky person and hard to please and this just made her more determined to help me find a home. She guided me through the entire purchase process answering all my questions. She is a very nice person and gave me advice on home decorations. I will recommend her to all my fiends and family."
"Dina with PorchLight was really fantastic. My spouse and I connected with her very quickly at an open house. We loved how open and laid-back she seemed while also being able to tell it like it is and get things done. This was our first home buying experience and she really facilitated a smooth purchase from choosing a neighborhood to closing. We both have crazy work schedules and she was so flexible that it was never a problem. Honestly, we both just really liked how much she seemed to care about getting to know us and what we wanted, and ultimately, it really paid off -- we just moved in a month ago and could not be happier with our purchase! I would highly recommend working with PorchLight and with Dina!"
First Time Homebuyer
"What can we say, working with Dina was a pleasure every step of the way. We sold both our home of 28 years and bought a new home with Dina's assistance. Every step of the process was smooth and as promised. She was very responsive and gave us great advice. Her strategy was spot on as we sold our house in one weekend, with multiple offers. We were extremely happy with that. She has a fantastic team at PorchLight, excellent tips from the stagger, great photographer, all the details were covered.
Dina is a wonderful person, a great personality and now a friend. Keep up the great work Dina."
Buyer & Seller
"Our summer was crazy - finishing educational training, living in a different state, moving for jobs that started within six weeks, all while having a newborn and trying to search for a house. Can't say enough about how amazing Dina is to work with - she's knowledgable, friendly, responsive and is clear about making your needs/goals a priority. With all the stress we already had in our lives, she made the home search/buying process painless and enjoyable. We would recommend her and PorchLight in a heart beat!"
