My Real Estate Philosophy:
Real estate is about more than buying and selling homes — it’s about helping people with life transitions. Change can be stressful, but my goal is to help clients achieve a smooth transition, with no bumps along the way. Whether you’re buying your first home or leaving a long-time neighborhood, I will help you understand and navigate the process, using my experience to remove obstacles and help you achieve your goals.
I have lived in many places. My early years were spent in California, before moving to New Mexico for high school and college. I finished my post-graduate education in Lawrence, Kansas. The many moves I’ve made in my life give me a great perspective on the stresses and challenges faced by buyers and sellers.
My Approach to Real Estate:
My “past lives” as one of Colorado’s top political fundraisers, a public servant, and nonprofit fundraiser have given me a unique window into people’s motivations, and the decision-making process. I view my clients as partners in the process, and value the long-term relationships that develop from such a personal partnership. I want my clients to make good real estate decisions, and am not afraid to counsel somebody against a decision if I think it’s a poor or risky choice. My clients have continually rewarded me with referrals, and for that I am very grateful.
"Shaylisa and The Gerwin Group were extremely professional, personable, and responsive to all of our needs. I would recommend them to anyone in the market and will be using their services again."
"Just closed escrow on our house this afternoon. Shaylisa Hurte is hands down the best realtor in Denver! Not only did she answer all questions and anticipate all problems, she does it all with a smile on her face. I would recommend her to anyone buying and selling their home in Denver. Now on to moving!"
"Shaylisa was always one step ahead in the process of purchasing investment property. She’s very thorough, knowledgeable, and friendly too. I will definitely use her again in the future, and highly recommend her to others."
"Thanks to Shaylisa and The Gerwin Group, my family and I experienced exceptional, professional treatment in not only selling our home of 30 years and purchasing another home, but all completed in a timely manner with much thoughtfulness, kindness, concern and understanding in a difficult time of transition. From our first meeting to the last (except there isn’t a last because they continue to be in touch) they have been outstanding!"
"Shaylisa was a pleasure to work with throughout the entirety of the process. She was very understanding, informative, and patient with us. She explained things in detail when it came to items that we were not aware of and didn't know how to deal with; along with helping us through each step of the way. She was very responsive and helpful throughout it all and we wouldn't have wanted to work with anyone else during this process. I've heard horror stories about the process of buying a home and did not have this experience; which I believe was in part to how Shaylisa helped us through it. It seemed flawless and fairly simple through it all and we couldn't be happier! She is great to work with and would recommend her to whomever is looking for their next home purchase!"
"We were fortunate to be introduced to Shaylisa through a common connection. Shaylisa guided us through our first home purchase in Colorado. She is thoughtful, professional, diligent, responsive, and considerate. Her advice and insights were instrumental in preparing a successful offer in the hyper-competitive Denver market. We not only consider Shaylisa our realtor, but a friend."
