  • "My wife and I hired Karla to sell our home, in Broomfield, CO, which was previously our primary residence and became a rental property. We had to sell the house, quickly, while at the same time we had to be sensitive to the current renters and ensure they were out, once the sale closed. To top it off, we had to do this, remotely, as we had moved from Colorado to Texas for a job transfer. Karla provided the best real estate experience that we had ever had. She was an expert on the market, what homes were going for, what price we should consider listing our house for, the staging, marketing...and eventually the close. With her advice, the house sold within days, the renters were out on time and we were able to have a worry-free outcome because of her commitment to a smooth process. I highly recommend Karla for any of your real estate needs!"
    Jason Nance

  • "We had an excellent experience with Karla! She helped us make some good decisions in a crazy market. The whole house selling business is stressful, but Karla and PorchLight had us on a great timeline that was easy to follow. We were thrilled to have an over asking price within the first weekend and signed a contract 3 days into the process. I would highly recommend Karla for any real estate needs. She was quick to respond to my questions and made the experience a lot less stressful. We are thankful for her and blessed to call her a friend. We look forward to being back in the neighborhood soon, as she is also helping us with our new build in Anthology West."
    Stephanie Montoya

  • "Selling and buying a home is one of the most stressful experiences a person can have, especially with all the new regulations. Karla gave us peace of mind throughout the process and we always knew that she was in our corner with our best interest in mind. Her experience and professionalism is beyond compare."
    Diane Smith
    Buyer & Seller

  • "Our agent, Karla Painter, is a super agent. We worked with her on two properties. She was extremely helpful in the process. She understood our needs and she never sugarcoated things. She answered my emails/text messages/phone calls on weekends, evenings, basically at any time. She has our trust."
    Ajin H.

  • "Karla is Great! Incredibly helpful, She doesn’t just give you an answer, she makes sure that how she responds is in your favor and always has your back through the process. I will pass on her name!"
    Diane & Greg S.

  • "Thanks to Karla I was able to close on a beautiful home in the neighborhood I desired. She was very attentive and always available. With my work schedule I was basically unreachable during the week and Karla handled all the footwork for me and went above and beyond what is expected of a realtor . Highly recommended!"
    Clayton H.

  • "My husband and I can’t say enough good things about Karla Painter. Our whole experience with Karla was flawless. She always took the time to explain things thoroughly and help us make decisions on time. Karla truly cares and wants the absolute best for her clients. You always feel like you have a strong “fighter” in your corner. She will fight to get you the best deal and get it all done in time. At the end of our escrow, we walked away with a new friend. Thank you Karla, for all your hard work! Xo"
    Jennifer Ballard

  • "Karla is wonderful. She made our selling experience so easy. Anytime we had a question or issue she responded right away. Even when she was on her vacation she kept in touch and took care of our concerns. I would recommend her to anyone who is buying or selling their home. She definitely takes care of her clients."
    Joy and Brent Guillory

  • "Upon a recommendation from our mortgage banker, we worked with Karla to find the perfect horse property near Denver. As first-time home buyers we had many questions about the process and Karla gave helpful explanations along the way. She is approachable, knowledgeable, and always accessible. She understood our needs and toured many properties with us, noting pros and cons and potential issues. After finding the home of our dreams we had a few hiccups between the offer and closing. We were glad to have Karla with us throughout the journey and highly recommend her."
    Katie L.
    First-Time Buyer

  • "I have worked with Karla for over 10 years!! Many folks refer to us as "The Dream Team", she handling the real estate side of a transaction and I, the financing end. I have found her to be honest, caring, knowledgeable and truly professional. We have had some wing dingers and she has always held the deals together resulting in happy folks on both sides. You won't go wrong choosing Karla to represent you in any real estate transaction!!"
    Heather H.

  • "Karla Painter was absolutely wonderful to work with. She made the process of selling our home and buying a new one as stress free as possible. Any potential problems she addressed immediately and was always available to answer questions and get us to the next step. My husband and I would highly recommend using her for your new home purchase or sale!"
    Bridgette K.

  • "Karla is a true expert in her field. She helped up buy and sell a home during the peak of the season with many offers appearing on both sides of the table. She works very hard to get the very best for her customer and is a person of true integrity."
    Dee Dee Miller

  • "Karla was great, and always there to answer her phone and take care of things. She made this all happen, and fast as I had requested. Several hurdles had to be overcome and she stepped up to the plate. I have used Karla 3x and would recommend her to be your next realtor. Thanks again! Jean B."
    Jean B.

  • "Karla was our agent for our family"s relocation to another state due to a change in my husband"s career. We had a quick move timeline and she was able to do all that was necessary in that short time frame. She believed in us, more than we believed in ourselves. She marketed our home before it even went on the market, so that the first day it was on the market, we have several showings, with many others booked in subsequent days. The best part was we had an offer the first day that wildly exceeded our expectations. Because of this, we were able to move our entire family in a very short time frame. I would highly recommend Karla!"
    Callie Hamblin

  • "Karla was our real estate agent in a fast-moving market. We were very demanding and looking for just the right home and Karla was there every step of the way. She made time around our hectic work travel schedules and filtered out the homes that didn't meet our requirements. Karla never tried to push us into a home that was not a good fit and used every showing as an opportunity to further refine what we were looking for. We ended up with the home we wanted and Karla was a huge part of that. She also took care of all of the other resources needed (great broker, inspections, etc.). Highly recommended."
    Rob Carter

  • "Karla is an amazing real estate professional who works very hard to make her clients dreams come true! She provided insight to the market, as well as great advice to sell our home. We even received a contract over asking price."
    Shula Gorski

  • "Thanks for helping to make us "homeless" so quickly! Circumstances of changing jobs, moving cross-country, and corporate relocation policies made it critical for us to sell our home promptly; Karla helped us work through several important decision points on the Colorado end of the move, and provided the information we needed to put our home on the market at the right price. Both Karla and the PorchLight Group did an outstanding job preparing, marketing, negotiating, and closing on our house; their hard work is very much appreciated."
    Robert Nemchek

  • "Karla helped us through the process of selling and buying our new home. In the past we have used friends that realtor licences and decided that this time we wanted a full time professional. Wow! What a difference. We could not be happier with our experience."
    Davi & Steve

  • "Karla helped my wife and I sell our condo and the experience was second to none! With us living in another state and having to do everything by email and phone, the transaction could not have gone smother. Karla was always one step ahead of any issues that arose and handled everything very quickly. I would recommend Karla to anyone selling a home and wants outstanding service. My wife and I are not only happy to call Karla our realtor but also our friend!"
    Chris and Susan Grant

  • "We are so lucky to have had the opportunity to work with such an amazing realtor as Karla Painter. I’ve known Karla for 11 years, and when it came to choosing a realtor for our needs it was an easy decision to go with Karla. Through the years I’ve watched her grow and flourish in her chosen career. Karla takes the time to know all the ins and outs of the real estate market and if she doesn’t know the answer to a question she will research it or point you in the right direction. Karla is flexible and willing to help out wherever she is needed. It has been a pleasure working with Karla."
