My Real Estate Philosophy:
As a life-long Colorado Native, I know this area like the back of my hand and have seen how the real estate landscape has changed since I began my career 11 years ago. I am always keeping my finger on the pulse of what’s new and trending in the Denver area and I use this expertise to educate my clients on not only the market but the actual homes themselves. I am driven to work hard for my clients so I can ultimately witness the magic that happens when a buyer finds “the perfect home” or when a seller finally hears that their house has sold. I understand the intricacies of balancing work and life better than most. I am a loving wife and mom of two amazing boys, a yoga teacher, and I make this work all on top of working full time as a Real Estate Broker with PorchLight Real Estate Group. It’s a lot to juggle but I wouldn’t have it any other way!
My Approach to Real Estate:
I understand that balancing work and life doesn’t always come easy, so whether it’s your first home, your tenth or an investment opportunity, I’m prepared to guide you through every phase of the real estate process to make your experience as effortless and enjoyable as possible. As an expert in the real estate game, I have the knowledge, service, dedication, and resources to get you where you want to go—whether that’s local or global! I have a far-reaching referral network with connections to the very best real estate professionals. Through my relationships and expertise, I can help get you where you want to be.
"She took the time to get to know us and was very responsive. She never acted like I was bothering her… It was really great working with Kelly. She helped us tour many areas of the city, and then hone in on [the] Hampden [area], where we couldn’t be happier. She was always available, prompt, and took as much time as needed to explain things in plain English!"
"The overall process was great. Kelly was a pleasure to work with because she took the time to understand what I want and how I liked to work. I will recommend Kelly to anyone looking for a realtor. [The best part of the transaction was] Kelly’s patience. She made the whole process seem effortless. Kelly was able to make me feel comfortable when making decisions and never pushed me to make a decision when I was not ready."
"Kelly was a great help guiding us through the process of purchasing our first home! She was proactive in finding listings that would interest us and always was conscious of our wish list and our budget. I would definitely recommend Kelly!"
"Kelly was very friendly, knowledgeable, and proactive. [The transaction] went fast with no glitches! I did get my asking price, cash and closed in a week! Could not have asked for better really!"
"I really can’t say enough wonderful things about my experience buying a house with Kelly. She’s a fantastic and easy-going person, but she’s also an assiduous and talented agent. Working with her was exciting and entertaining, but also comforting and reassuring.
Purchasing a house is obviously a huge investment, and there are risks and pitfalls that come with the process which making it exhilarating, but also quite intimidating. Kelly helped to ease any fears I had by walking me through each step in detail until I felt like I understood. She also offered advice, but never pushed in any direction unless I was fully on board. Finally, She set me up with a fantastic lender, which helped make the mortgage purchase a breeze. Her communication skills, both with the lender and the seller’s agent, were phenomenal. We put a bid on a house early on in the process. It ended up going well above asking price, but she was in close contact with the seller’s agent and updated me as soon as she heard anything. Any time I had a question, Kelly got me a quick answer. As a millennial with a short attention span, this was extremely gratifying. The house I purchased went on the market on a Tuesday. I emailed Kelly and she set up a time on the very next day to look at it. We put a bid down that night, and it was perfect timing because the seller was just about to make their decision. Kelly did everything in her power to help win over the seller and agent, and our bid ended up getting selected! The actual numbers for the purchase ended up being exactly what I had wanted to spend. Best of all, Kelly fought for some seller concessions which helped cover some issues with the house, including getting the entire roof replaced! My lender was extremely surprised that we actually got money back from the seller, as that’s rarely seen in the Denver housing market anymore. When I initially sat down and described what I wanted in a house, Kelly had me make a list of the top items that I needed. Once the dust had settled on the final purchase, she had us look through the list again, and it turned out that every single item had been covered! I had expected to have to make sacrifices seeing that the Denver market is so tumultuous right now, but thanks to Kelly I ended up with exactly what I wanted."
"We loved working with Kelly Tierney and we would recommend her to anyone. As first time homebuyers in a very tough market, we were anxious and unsure and probably pretty needy, and Kelly was always amazing. She explained everything very clearly (multiple times) was always down to go look at every house we were even a little interested in. I never once felt like Kelly was trying to sell us something. She was always our guide in finding the right house, and was often the voice of reason in letting us know we may want to move on to the next one. She was truly with us, and we love her for that. All of the professionals she recommended ended up being excellent, particularly the inspector. When we discovered some issues, she was able to negotiate a good settlement with our closing costs to cover the repairs we needed. Bottom line, she's lovely and knows her stuff, and you should call her."
"We loved working with Kelly Tierney for so many reasons! She was highly responsive, kept in very close contact with us, acted quickly, was strategic and highly effective in her negotiations and helped us navigate the process from looking for a home all the way to closing on our new place. She has a deep knowledge of the Denver metro area and was able to consult with us on neighborhood considerations and price histories. She also has the strength of a solid team to support her, so we felt we were taken care of not just by her, but by the entire PorchLight team. She was able to refer us to vendors who we have great success with and truly took into account our unique needs and desires in order to match us with the perfect home – and secure it. In such a competitive market, we were so fortunate to find Kelly who worked tirelessly on our behalf."
