I believe real estate transactions are a journey that clients begin as soon as the thought of buying or selling a home enters into their head and heart. Because of this, the process itself is often highly emotionally charged for everyone involved. As your agent, I will partner and advocate for you in a way that respects the multi-dimensional nature of a real estate transaction. My goal is to ensure that you enjoy the process of home buying or selling, as much as the reward that awaits you at the closing table.
My approach to real estate is strongly influenced by my former career as a professional fundraiser, responsible for raising major gifts from individual donors. The transition to my real estate career was seamless because I have an inherent understanding of what lies at the core of both — a financial transaction that is led by the heart. Really listening to your goals and desires to find the best home for you guides my actions every day. I pride myself in having strong market knowledge, integrity, communication skills and negotiating super powers! By developing an honest relationship with you, I will work hard to make the adventure of buying and selling a home a transformational experience that marks a significant milestone in your life.
"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
"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!"
"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."
Our Certified Market Expert designation is the only one of its kind. Agents choose from three area-specific certifications—Central Denver, South Suburbs or North Suburbs—and become experts in that area.
Agents who earn this elite designation have not only completed our Market Ed courses—learning the ins and outs of their specialty area's cities and neighborhoods—but they've previewed dozens of homes in each area, giving them an insider's perspective on the nooks and crannies of the metro Denver area. They know what kind of architecture each area offers, and also know the special restaurants, shops, and attractions that make each neighborhood unique.
When you choose an agent with one or more CME designations, you know you're getting a trusted advisor who will guide you in making the smartest real estate investment possible while also finding the community that's the right fit for you.
