About Jessica Schmelzer

My Real Estate Philosophy:

Communication. Communication is the core of any good partnership. A great working relationship starts with the communication of your goals. It is important that I understand exactly what you want and need out of your real estate transaction. It is equally important that you understand what I can do for you to help reach these goals. I plan to never stop improving so that I can use our communication and my knowledge to achieve success working together. It is my job to help you feel informed and confident in one of the biggest decisions and investments you will make.

My Approach to Real Estate:

Knowledge. In an ever-changing market there is always something new to learn. It is my goal to be as educated and knowledgeable as I can, so I can be the best agent for you. I will work for you and with you to obtain all of the important information to succeed in the buying or selling of your home. My knowledge of the local Denver market and its positive effects on your transaction will be an advantage you have with me as your agent. I am aware this is an important personal and financial decision for you as a buyer or seller. I will be an informed advocate for you to help achieve success in your real estate transaction.

  • "We were trying to orchestrate a cross country move to a city we had never lived in before. This required us to place a lot of trust in our realtor and her guidance around neighborhoods that would fit our lifestyle, the Denver school system, and the actual house itself. All told we offered on 5 different houses and pursued countless others. Now that I live here, I definitely feel like any of the houses we offered on would have been a great fit (although, we are very happy where we ended up!), thanks to Jessica"s advice. She also advised us not to offer on several homes due to resale concerns (primarily due to location) and we are glad we took this advice. We definitely felt like Jessica and her PorchLight team were the most responsive of any realtors we"ve worked with in the past. This was critical in such a competitive market like Denver, especially since we were not physically there for everything, and without it I"m sure we would not have ended up where we are!"

  • "We bought a home with Jessica as our realtor and our experience was fantastic! Jessica is a phenomenal realtor from her knowledge of the real estate market to her focus on customer service. Being new to the Denver area and unfamiliar with the market we were nervous about finding a realtor that would take the time to understand what we wanted in a home, and find a home that suited our needs while being a sound financial decision. Jessica’s extensive knowledge of the Denver Metro area and the time she invested in learning about us allowed her to refine her search methods so that they were tailored to our specific needs. PorchLight and Jessica in particular took care of all of the details in our home purchase. We would highly recommend Porchlight and Jessica to any of our friends and family. Jessica’s care, skill, business acumen, and tenacity made buying a home a stress-free and enjoyable experience."
    Kelsey and Ben Lesco

  • "Jessica won our business hands down after we met her at an open house and she took the initiative to follow up with us. Not only did Jessica demonstrate a great knowledge of the Denver market, but she really demonstrated that she listened to our needs and understood what we were looking for in that very first conversation. The market was extremely volatile for purchasing, so Jessica worked with us to determine the appropriate timing of the listing of our current home so that we were not displaced or inconvenienced with that while we pursued finding our new home. The marketing materials for our home sale were very professional and our home sold within one short week. Jessica was also very helpful in determining the appropriate list price for our home to sell fast, but at top dollar. We refer our friends to Jessica as often as we get the chance, even introducing her to FUTURE home buyers that might not be ready quite yet."

  • "I am usually leary of sales people and real estate agents pushing for options that make them more money.   Porchlights staging and marketing for sellers is beyond anything that I have seen and we went to over 50 showings to find our new house.  Their expertise will help you have a better chance of selling at the price you hope for.  Jessica is available round the clock and always watching the listings and being ready for last minute showings of new properties to fit our schedule and be one of the first offers. I would introduce Jessica to friends and family. We have already told everyone what a great agent we had this year in Jessica.  - 10/10"

  • "Dan and I were so impressed within the first 10 minutes of our initial meeting, and our trust in Jessica only grew in every interaction since. It is so evident through her communications and actions just how much she genuinely cares about her clients and their best interest. She got to know us and what we wanted, and kept that top-of-mind in every piece of advice or guidance she offered. Jessica also consistently made us feel as though we were her only clients and #1 priority - Dan and I would laugh because she'd often start her email responses with "so sorry for my delayed response", and we would have only emailed her about an hour earlier. I'm keeping my fingers crossed that some of her incredibly high standards rubbed off on me! We always say that we couldn't have made it through this process without Jessica, and yesterday during our closing meeting, we found out just how true that was - we (quite literally) could not have done this without her."
    Tory U

  • "I'm convinced that when it comes to real estate professionals, it doesn't get any better than Jessica. She was consistently responsive, knowledgable, and most of all supportive throughout the entire process. Based on her vast experience, she provided critical input and advice every step of the way from the showing to the closing, and everything in between. It seemed as though she always had us on her mind, even when we hadn't spoken in a few days. There is no way I could have gone through it without her. If you are considering working with someone to help in a real estate purchase, look no further! HIGHLY RECOMMENDED."
    Dan J.

  • "Jessica (and PorchLight in general) is a fantastic agent, and I have worked with several in my time. Not only is she skilled and friendly, she is responsive and flexible as well. We were selling two houses simultaneously (one our primary residence and one an investment property). Despite the very disparate natures of the houses, she was able to get above asking offers on both of them within the first day on the market. The process from there was as smooth as real estate can be, with Jessica working all the angles, even pushing contractors to get their parts done so we could do quick sales. Only days after closing I have already recommended her several times."
    Heather Lee Graesser

  • "We had the privilege to work with Jessica at PorchLight to buy our first home in a really tough housing market. Having never gone through the experience before, we needed someone who was knowledgeable and patient to explain how the process worked and who would also have our best interests in mind. She was outstanding from day one, when she took us on a market research day to help us narrow down what area we wanted to live in and what size house and lot we wanted, even though at this point, we were still saving for a house."

  • "Jessica was a tremendous asset and resource to have on our side when searching for our new home. From the moment we met her, we knew that she was a professional energetic fun individual who knew her stuff. She is a great active listener and pays close attention to all the details no matter how minor they may seem. It was apparent in the beginning that she did her homework prior to showing us a house by knowing the important details about each property, such as the age of the roof. In a short period of time she seemed to know before we saw a property what our specific questions would be and knew the answers. If she didn’t know the answer to a property specific question she would contact the listing agent and/or homeowner’s association and if they did not respond timely, she did regular follow ups and kept us posted along the way until she had an answer to our question. We felt comfortable looking at each property and being able to pay attention to the overall feel of the home, features we liked and whether the home was the right one all the while knowing that Jessica would pay close attention and take notes of the real important things like the age of the water heater, looking for cracks in the walls and foundation, water damage, in addition to, our likes and dislikes for that home. From the beginning it was clear that Jessica was not out to just sell us a house rather it had to be a house that we wanted, fit our needs and that we envisioned as our new home. Although she sold us the ideal home, should we decide to sell it, Jessica would be the first person we would contact."

  • "Jessica was recommended to me by a friend to help sell a house. This was the first time I had ever dealt with any realtor or home buying/selling. She was very good to explain in great detail, but in a way easily understood by myself, the process every step of the way. At no time did I feel uncomfortable with any of the decisions I had to make. Her response time to all of my questions was exceptional, and all information was given to me as soon as she had it. Selling my house was a very smooth experience. I then asked her to help me with buying a house. Jessica was quick to get a list of things that I wanted and things that I had to have. I was given access to an online tool to view listings in my area that matched what I was looking for, and at the same time Jessica kept an eye out for potential listings. She walked me through the whole home-buying process and explained many things I should look for. As I looked at houses, she would take note of things I liked/disliked so that future showings could be better. When the perfect house came along she helped to get my offer in right away while making sure I was very comfortable with doing so. Thanks to Jessica I got a great house in a very competitive market. I am very pleased with the service Jessica provided. I will gladly go back to her for any future real estate business."

  • "I had been looking at making my first home purchase for some time, and of course I had received several realtor referrals from friends. Having never been through the process before, I had no idea what to expect and was happy for any advice. My experiences were fine, but I didn't have a real baseline for comparison. Then I was introduced to Jessica who came very highly regarded by two different contacts who could not stop raving about how amazing she was. I decided to meet with her and within one meeting it was obvious how far she stood out from the rest and that I wanted to work with her on this process. You will not find a more responsive, dedicated and truly caring person to work with than Jessica. If I had any complaint, it was that I sometimes felt guilty at how amazingly responsive she was. Buying your first home is a very intimidating experience and she was with me 100% of the way. Sometimes you need an unbiased opinion to temper your enthusiasm so you make rational decisions, other times you need a friend to give necessary encouragement, and yet other times still you need the trusted business advisor and skilled negotiator who is determined to get you the best possible deal without losing the bid. Jessica navigates the entire process with the skill of a seasoned professional while making you feel as comfortable as you would with a long time friend. Even after closing she continues to check in regularly and is happy to help whenever an opportunity arises. I could not have made a better choice and highly recommend her to anyone buying or selling a home. You just don't know how good a realtor can be until you meet Jessica!"
