I moved to Denver in 1971 and have been proud to call Denver home since then. In 1997, I became a real estate agent after spending more than 20 years in sales and marketing for the commercial office furniture industry. For 9 years, I have been specializing in senior housing.
I am a Certified Senior Housing Specialist, which means I have the specialized education and experience to ensure, open and clear communication throughout the transaction, attention to the physical and emotional aspects of every move, affiliation with a team of resource providers who share common values.
Most of my business comes from referrals from satisfied buyers and sellers, I know that if I keep my promise of providing excellent service and making the process of buying and selling seamless, my business will continue to grow.
In addition to serving my clients, I spend my time as an active member of the Denver, Colorado and National Assoc. of Realtors, a board member of PEO and past board member of many other organizations.
I am committed to providing first-class service to all who work with me!
"Selling our house was a smooth success, thanks to Karen's guidance and experience. Karen is an incredible asset, and made assessing our market and offers a breeze. We loved working with Karen again, and appreciate her great attitude, perspective, patience, and efficiency. Karen, thank you - you and the team at PorchLight were a joy to work with, and made this such a success for us."
"Our recent home sale was a seamless project from beginning to end!
Karen Kilde was superb in guiding us each step along the way with
"spot-on" attention to every detail. PorchLight's support team from
market shine, photography, and staging consultation
proved to be above expectations. Even the clever PorchLight
real estate sign drew positive comments from the neighbors.
Karen Kilde's personalized attention and recommendations through
each facet of the transaction proved to be exemplary in every respect.
Our house sold and closed in the time Karen projected. We heartily
recommend Karen and the PorchLight team for expert service in
the real estate market!"

"We had a wonderful experience working with Karen Kilde at PorchLight. It took us almost a year to find a home, and Karen was there with us through it all. She never hesitated to meet with us on evenings or weekends, and was never impatient with us and our small children at showings! She gave us very good advice every step of the way. We would not hesitate to work with Karen again!"
"Karen Kilde was awesome. Thanks so much Karen!! She made the process of our downsizing as painless as possible. I will continue to work with her and refer her to other family and friends."
"I don't generally leave reviews for anyone unless someone went above and beyond. Karen did that for us. She was awesome to work with. While we knew Karen prior to needing a realtor we did not expect the top notch service we received. Karen Kilde at PorchLight was awesome to work with. We started working with Karen about 3 months before we put our house on the market. She helped us prioritize what we should update on the house. Karen worked hard with the photographer and her marketing team to make sure our house stood out. My wife and I were moving across the country so moving time was hectic for us. Karen came by and did last minute clean up after we left and shoveled our driveway at one point. Talk about going above and Beyond for us!!! Thats not what we expected from our realtor but we loved working with her. Our house sold within 2 months!!! While the buying agent was a little difficult to work with Karen was a miracle worker and sold our house. Thank you KAREN!"

"Trying to sell an outmoded home that was in considerable disrepair offered some unique challenges for me as the executor of an estate for a deceased friend. I was fortunate enough to work with Karen Kilde of PorchLight Realty to tackle this project. From our very first meeting it was evident that Karen understood the unique situation, and she worked with me to meet the needs of the estate, including working around a timeline that had to be flexible for the family of the deceased. Her recommendations for prepping and staging the house were appropriate and purposeful. Throughout the process—and especially important to me since I lived out of town—she communicated consistently, promptly, and clearly, both from her end as the situation unfolded, and in response to questions and concerns that came from my end. As new realities about the state of the property emerged through the process, we found it necessary to make a number of adjustments. Karen never over-reacted, got frustrated, or panicked. She had a clear strategy in mind, and she modified the strategy appropriately as the circumstances changed, with the end result that a sale was brought to a satisfactory conclusion for all parties concerned. I particularly appreciated her positive attitude, professional demeanor, strong integrity, and very evident love of the work she does. I recommend her without qualification or reservation."
