Born in Riga, Latvia, I came to the United States to play Division I Women’s Basketball in college. After graduating from the University of Colorado, Boulder, I had the opportunity to remain in the state I love by coaching basketball, from youth leagues to college level. Through my experiences as an international athlete and a coach, I gained a unique perspective that has driven me to develop a successful career in real estate.
I love meeting new people, that’s the best part of what I do, and I look forward to helping you!
"To say that I was fortunate to have found Dina Piterniece with PorchLight Real Estate Group, and have been lucky enough to have had her experience, guidance and knowledge throughout my real estate transaction would be a drastic understatement. Not only was Dina fun and an absolute pleasure to work with, but her thorough professionalism in every aspect of the transaction instilled confidence in me that the process was being completed correctly and efficiently.
Dina and the entire transaction with PorchLight Group was very easy and well prepared. I would highly recommend Dina to any of my friends or family in need of a real estate agent for the Denver area."
"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!"

First Time Home 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!"
Craig and Ashley Davis
"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
"PorchLight has a great process to list your home starting with how to make your home more attractive to buyers, to the literature and finally the number of showings. Joy and Dina followed the process and did not miss a step. We received multiple offers and each offer was explained to us to help decide on the best one. Everything went extremely smooth. They were there at closing to make sure there were no issues. We received the proceeds from sale of the house the day of closing.
The best thing was Joy and Dina set a schedule of events up front for listing date, showings and closing date. The schedule was met exactly as they set it up. Great job by the whole PorchLight team. I really liked the foldout brochure with the floor plan drawing."
"Dina and her team at PorchLight were simply wonderful to work with. She had an incredibly amount of patience with us - particularly because my husband and I wanted different things. We had some highs and lows and not once did Dina push us into an offer or purchase. She asked us questions and challenged us on things. She made sure it was what we wanted and not settling for a house. It was a relief to have someone knowing what we wanted - even if we didn't know ourselves. We ended up with a wonderful home - and with Dina's strategy, got it for under asking (when does that happen in the Colorado market?). She knows what she's doing. I tell everyone about her - you can't go wrong with Dina in your corner."
"Dina with PorchLight did an amazing job helping us find a home! She knows a great deal about all of the different communities throughout the entire area we were looking. She helped make house hunting fun every time and never lost patience through the whole process. She was totally honest with us and I wouldn't call anyone else if I needed to buy another home. Highly recommend."
"We were very fortunate to meet Dina at an Open House over 2 years ago. We knew we wanted to move to Colorado from Texas but not sure about which area. Dina was patient with us and listened to our needs and would show us homes whenever we were in town until we found our home. Dina stuck with us for over 2 years before we were able to finally close on our new home in Colorado. Dina is absolutely amazing and the utmost professional. Dealing with a home builder can be overwhelming sometimes but Dina was always there and willing to step in to support us every step of the way and for this we are so grateful! I would recommend Dina to anyone that may have real estate needs in the Denver area!"
"I recently bought a house in Denver, Lowry. I think that good job should be recognized! PorchLight Real Estate Group provided very good, accurate and professional service. Their agent Dina Piterniece was knowledgeable and very responsive she also recommended great service providers like insurance agent and home audit professional. I closed my deal in less than one week and can't be more satisfied! Thank you for a great job done!"
"Dina Piterniece was great from start to finish in our home buying experience. She went above and beyond to help us get the first house we put an offer on (when there was already two offers above asking price). She did a great job of working with the seller's agent to get the best deal for our needs. We know it wasn't an easy transaction and she made it as smooth as possible for us. We highly recommend her and will use her again!"
"We are moving from Texas to the Denver area and started working with Dina Piterniece several months before we were even ready to buy a home. She showed us so many houses in different areas of the city so that we could narrow down where we wanted to live. When we were ready to buy a house we came back to Denver for a week and Dina spent so much time showing us houses and helping us think through the things that were really important to us. We didn't love any of the houses we looked at that week. Over the next few weeks, Dina would tour houses and FaceTime with us so we could see the house and ask her any questions. She was so so patient and spent time every weekend visiting houses. She was always helpful and readily available for us. When we finally found our dream home she helped us put together a strong offer to ensure that we would get the house. Dina is incredibly knowledgeable and a great negotiator. Since we went through the whole home buying process from out of state, she went above and beyond to make sure that everything went smoothly! We would highly recommend Dina!"
"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 are so blessed to have met Dina during a PorchLight open house this past summer. From there we proceeded to become friends, both professionally and personally. Dina represented us in the purchase of our new home. She provided wonderful support during some very difficult warranty repairs. Also during that time, she sold our previous home. That also included some contract cancellations which could have been very stressful but Dina kept us on track. Her love for her job shows in her attitude and efficiency. We will definitely send referrals to her and wish her well."

"Working with Dina was so easy. She was always available to answer our questions and show us properties. She provided referrals for any other services we needed, too. We appreciated how patient she is all the time! She made sure all the Porchlight services were provided promptly and professionally. She valued our input on all decisions, even down to copy-writing the descriptions of our home on the MLS listing. We would definitely recommend Dina and use her services again!"
"Dina did great work marketing a single-family house I owned in Lakewood. She was thorough, knowledgable, strategic, and worked relentlessly and effectively to get the property sold. 48 hours after the house went on the market and following an open-house, we had two offers above the listing price. Once we were under contract. Dina worked effectively make sure that the closing went off without a hitch. She communicated with me constantly so that I was always aware of what was occurring and guided the transaction so that all the pieces fell into place. She worked with her PorchLight colleagues to stage the house effectively.
I highly recommend Dina to anyone who is selling a home. You’ll be very pleased with the experience and the results!"
"We had the sincere pleasure of working with Dina Piterniece in the recent purchase of our home. Dina is a true professional and had an extreme sense of urgency in everything she did for us. Within one day she was able to find us the home of our dreams, get an offer letter drafted, and accepted in 24 hours. She gave us peace of mind throughout the whole process and was readily available for any and all questions. Not to mention she is just an amazing, kind person that made this experience exceptional. Highly recommend her for all of your Real Estate Needs. Thank you again, Dina!"
"I would like to add how much Caitlyn and I enjoyed working with her. From the first time I met with her, I knew we made the right decision about who could lead us through the process. She listened to our needs and quickly knew exactly what we were searching for in a home. Dina made us feel like we were her only clients and we truly appreciate all she did for us throughout the entire process. Thank you, Dina!"
Tom and Caitlyn M.
"My husband and I are so grateful that we had Dina Piterneice to help us during a tremendously difficult time for our family. When my brother died suddenly in January, I asked a friend of mine who is a realtor in our home community in Maryland if she knew of anyone in the Denver area who could help us with the sale of his house. By chance, someone in her office had moved from Denver and recommended Dina. What a blessing! I called Dina and sensed that this young woman was someone I could easily work with. We met when my husband and I went to Denver to clean out the house in March, just ahead of the coronavirus crisis. Because of Dina’s help and ability to respond quickly in a very challenging situation, we were able to continue one step ahead of the complications from the pandemic all the way to settlement. The way was not without its challenges, but Dina continued to stay the course with her professional attitude as well as the right amount of kindness and humor. This helped to keep me focused whenever things started to get overwhelming.
I will always think of Dina as a godsend during a sad and challenging time."
"It is hard to convey how incredibly fortunate we were to be referred to Dina Piterniece on a colleague’s recommendation. Dina was careful to learn our needs and desires, not just through questions and listening but through observation and experience as we toured homes and she would absorb our comments and feelings on each one. She came to know what we were looking for almost better than we knew ourselves, and in the end, we couldn’t be happier with the home we found.
Dina was available, responsive, and always on our side as she guided us through the exciting and very personal journey of finding our Colorado home. She cared as much about us being happy with our ultimate decision as we did ourselves.
Her insight into neighborhoods and addresses throughout Denver and Jefferson Counties was comprehensive and spot-on. Dina became our friend, and we give her the highest of recommendations."
Bill & Eve H.
"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!"
Alex and Sarah
"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."
"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!"

First Time Homebuyer
"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
"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!"
