I chose to become a realtor because I love partnering with people during one of the most stressful moments of their lives. Whether you are buying or selling a home, it is a highly charged, emotional, and high-stakes financial transaction that involves both the head and the heart.
As an agent, I advocate for my clients in a way that respects the multi-dimensional nature of a real estate transaction. By truly listening to their goals and desires I am able to find a home that is perfect for building the next chapter of their lives, and also a very solid financial investment.
With strong market knowledge, keen negotiation skills, open communication and the utmost honesty and integrity, I work tirelessly to make the process as enjoyable as the reward that awaits at the closing table. In every transaction, I strive to take care of people’s hearts, while also taking care of their real estate business.
"I cannot say enough about how awesome Nilmini Hecox is. She was responsive to our wants and needs, and went above and beyond to help us close on our first home. She even told us about the home before it went on the market by utilizing her resources. It was quite the process so it was great to have someone like Nilmini to assist us along the way. She was our advocate, mediator, and educator. I don't think we would have been able to do this without her. I would highly recommend choosing Nilmini Hecox to be your real estate agent!"
First Time Buyer
"We had a fantastic experience with Nilmini Hecox at PorchLight. We got solid advice from her on what to do to ready our home to go on the market (all within reasonable cost and effort), and then when it was time to list, she hustled to make sure there was plenty of buyer traffic. House sold in just a few days for above asking price, and the closing was a cinch. She really did a great job!"
"Nilmini was an exceptional agent when we bought our home. She advocated for us based on our needs, listened to us, and was a joy to work with!"
"We worked with Nilmini after relocating to Denver from Boston. Nilmini was incredibly helpful in our transition to our new city. She had such fantastic energy and was incredibly organized and keyed in on our wants. We ended up finding the best home we saw in 5 months of actively looking because Nilmini's intuition and communications with the listing agent. We would certainly recommend working with her if you are new to Denver. PorchLight's team was immensely helpful in our move to Denver."
"Nilmini worked with my daughter and son-in-law to buy their first home and was with them every step of the way! Professionalism at its very best! Thank you so much, Nilmini, for making their dreams come true! You were awesome!"

Parent of Client
"Nilmini Hecox is gifted and extraordinary real estate agent! Her finesse helped our family learn about and navigate the process of buying our first rental property, infusing each step with great ease and fun. At our closing, the seller and I talked about our mutual experience that Nilmini fostered the most delightful and effortless real estate transaction either of us had ever experienced. Sounds pretty good, right? Indeed, I wholeheartedly recommend Nilmini Hecox - she is incredible!"
"I recently purchased a home in Denver using PorchLight Real Estate and Nilmini Hecox was my fantastic agent. Nilmini listened to what I wanted to spend, the neighborhood I wanted to be in, and my wish list in a house. She wasn't like other agents that take you to see houses outside of your budget or houses that were completely different from your wish list, which was absolutely wonderful.
Nilmini closely follows the Denver housing market trends and knows if there are going to be multiple offers on places if houses are overpriced, etc. She also sends out regular newsletters to her clients that show and explain the trends, which is helpful for her clients to understand.
I had a lot going on in my personal life and Nilmini made sure to guide me through the process by checking in regularly and informing me of what/when things needed to happen along the way. I needed to find an updated, fairly low-budget (for the Denver area) house quickly and she made that happen. We started looking at places on a Tuesday and by Saturday, I was under contract. I was able to close within 30 days, which is a huge feat in today's Denver housing market.
She was there for me every step of the way and definitely looked out for my best interest. I can't thank her enough and I highly recommend her as an agent and PorchLight as a company!"
"Working with Nilmini S. Hecox was a pleasure. She is dedicated to listening to her clients, and doing her best to search and find the best housing opportunity to fit their needs. She is an enthusiastic, diligent, trustworthy and responsive realtor who is passionate about the business of real estate and caring for her clients. We highly recommend Nilmini, and urge our friends and family to work with her as well!"
"Nilmini Hecox recently helped me sell my townhouse and buy my next home. Nilmini sold my townhouse in record time and guided me through the selling process quickly. Nilmini went above and beyond when the inspection revealed the potential for a major repair. She made numerous phone calls, brought in repair people that she trusted, and even waited at the house for the repair people to arrive! With Nilmini's assistance, it was discovered that the repair was minor and easily remedied.
When buying my new house, Nilmini quickly understood what I was looking for in a home and helped keep the process move forward, in spite of the fact that the sellers were residing out of the country. Nilmini's guidance between the entire process was invaluable and I've already told many people that I have the perfect agent for them when they are ready to sell or buy their next home!"
"Working with Nilmini was a real joy. She was amazing throughout the entire process of buying our first home - super responsive to all of our questions or needs and really seemed to understand what we were looking for. She made us feel like we were her only clients, which makes a huge difference in the sometimes overwhelming process of buying a home. We look forward to working with Nilmini again for our next move."
"Nilmini is a delight. She astutely guided us through the purchase of our first investment property in a very competitive market. She has a strong handle on market conditions and valuation and was extremely responsive given that showings and offers must occur within hours of listing, in many cases. She was also very effective at managing the up & down emotions of theses types of transactions. I would highly recommend having Nilmini help with personal and investment real estate needs and we will definitely work with her again."
"I can't say enough good things about Nilmini, she is simply wonderful! We sold our home with her in Stapleton all while working remotely. If it weren't for her thoughtfulness, patience, competence, and sense of humor we wouldn't have survived this emotionally challenging process. We have bought and sold a couple homes now, and have worked with many agents, but Nilmini is in a class of her own. She was fully aware of our needs and concerns and able create a plan of action for the many tribulations that arose through this process. All while keeping us laughing! She's the best, and I would recommend her to anyone and everyone!"

"My wife and I would like to thank Nilmini for securing our first investment property for us through Porchlight. When we decided that we were ready to invest in property we got in touch with Nilmini for some help and advice. We had the benefit of having known Nilmini personally which made our decision to use her as our agent easy. She is someone that we both felt that we could trust without question as we began the process of looking for the best property to suit us. Nilmini always made time for us when we were available to look through homes that we were interested in. Eventually we found the perfect condo and Nilmini represented us and coached us through the entire process. She made the experience enjoyable and exciting."
"Nilmini Hecox did an amazing job helping us secure a new home on short notice. We are moving from out of state and thus were unfamiliar with all the neighborhoods and had a tight timeframe to find a property that would work for us. We saw a house online and she made sure we got to see it while we were still in Denver, gave us great background and guided us through a quick negotiation and contract process. The contingency period and closing went off without a hitch and she was very patient explaining differences in how the process works in Colorado. We are very happy with our new home and neighborhood. Thanks Nilmini and Porchlight!"
"Nilmini was amazing! This was an unexpected, last-minute transaction that required prompt action on everything from getting our home staged and ready to be put on the market within a week, navigating the loan process, and dealing with a buyers side agent who was less than helpful. Nilmini did what I think an agent is supposed to do: provided us with the critical information and support we needed while buffering us from the stressful details that are just part of the buy-sell process but not things we needed to be stressed by. She was already scheduled to go on a family vacation halfway around the world and while she was gone she paired us with a professional and detail-oriented colleague (Sarah Kelly) who was able to take over the day-to-day issues, while Nilmini remained accessible to us for important matters.
The PorchLight platform and support network was also great. From developing beautiful marketing materials, to staffing open houses at short notices, and having colleagues willing to step in, the process was seamless from our end. We received fairly timely emails about open houses and though there were a few glitches issues were resolved and Nilmini was aware of what was happening and was able to provide us details of showings and numbers. I appreciated receiving periodic updates with dates/times/deadlines since it is easy for things to get lost in the inbox. And the on-line form platform was great and made it easy for us to sign documents when we were physically in different locations and at short notice, allowing negotiations to proceed quickly.
I would highly recommend Nilmini as an agent if you are looking for someone who can gracefully combine intelligence, detail orientation and business acumen with heart and a sense of purposefulness. As a personal homebuyer and seller, this was business but also an emotional event and I appreciated having an agent who could attend to both aspects of what we needed in big and small ways. This is more than a job for her - it is about helping land individuals and families in houses that will allow them to build the homes they want."
