What Clients are Saying
Here's what our satisfied customers are saying about us:
We recently closed on a home with Cyndy Benshop and it was a great experience. She handled all the details from start to finish and her knowledge is top notch. She has done her research on the neighborhoods, right down to what train tracks are active. She was always responsive, even submitting our offer on Christmas Eve and finishing the paperwork on Christmas Day when the offer was accepted. One particular issue she handled with our transaction was a dealing with a change on our part. We had entered into a contract on a new home with Cyndy, but as time went on we decided a different home was more perfect for us. Cyndy was fabulous and understanding and was clear that she was putting our best interests as a priority and she even fought to get us out of the original contract. We then entered into a new contract, and away we went and she was there through all the phases, offers, inspections, financials and closing. No problems dealing with Cyndy or her team from start to finish. My experience with PorchLight was positive, but make it even better by asking for Cyndy Benshop!
- Rob Traver, Buyer
We loved Cyndy"s flat-rate fee in selling our home. She did everything she said she would...staging, a pre- full home inspection, professional photos, virtual tour and top-notch flyers. Her internet marketing is the best I"ve seen. She presented all offers in person and was instrumental in negotiating with buyers. I know there are tons of agents out there that "SAY" they can do it all. But Cyndy did it all and made it as fun as it could be! We would use Cyndy again and recommend her to anyone!
- Client, Homeowner
Cyndy Benschop is a very conscientious person and has been very proactive in screening properties and finding us options to evaluate. She has done great research for us to narrow down the options and present us with properties that fit exactly what we describe to her we wanted. We would highly recommend her to those looking. She is detail and met our needs 100%. Thank you Cyndy!
- Client, Homeowner
Cyndy Benschop was EXTREMELY helpful in making the home buying experience easy and efficient, especially for me- a first-time home buyer. She knows every aspect of the business very well, was able to meet me on MY time (which was very convenient) and always acted in my best interest (i.e. educated me on things to be aware of during the initial offer, inspection, etc). I would highly recommend Cyndy to anyone considering buying a home in the area.
- Dan Ehle, Buyer
Dina Piterniece of PorchLight Realty was my selling realtor and -- quite simply -- is the finest realtor I have ever engaged.
Bottom line first: Dina sold my home for the highest overall price ever paid in my Golden, Colorado neighborhood. This outstanding sales result is made even more impressive on a square footage basis since my home was the smallest model in the development.
Given the record price paid for my 40+ year old home, the buyer was very demanding with the inspection objections. Dina superbly negotiated the "must have vs. nice to have" objections which greatly reduced my stress and out of pocket $$$ relating to the sale. Despite the record sales price, Dina's hard work and overall knowledge of Golden home values also resulted in a spot on "Win/Win" appraised value (sales price = appraised value).
Overall, the sale of my home couldn't have gone better! Dina, along with the entire PorchLight team and related processes are the reasons why. Dina is friendly, hard working, sharp, and responsive which is a winning combination for success. It is rare to find a real estate professional who exceeds all expectations during a sales transaction. Dina exceeded each and every one of my lofty expectations!!
Thank you Dina and thank you PorchLight Realty!

Dina with PorchLight was really fantastic. My spouse and I connected with her very quickly at an open house. We loved how open and laid-back she seemed while also being able to tell it like it is and get things done. This was our first home buying experience and she really facilitated a smooth purchase from choosing a neighborhood to closing. We both have crazy work schedules and she was so flexible that it was never a problem. Honestly, we both just really liked how much she seemed to care about getting to know us and what we wanted, and ultimately, it really paid off -- we just moved in a month ago and could not be happier with our purchase! I would highly recommend working with PorchLight and with Dina!
- Hannah E., Buyer
Dina was very professional and a pleasure to work with. She was very patient with me as I am a very picky person and hard to please and this just made her more determined to help me find a home. She guided me through the entire purchase process answering all my questions. She is a very nice person and gave me advice on home decorations. I will recommend her to all my fiends and family.
- Chris E., Buyer
I don't know where to begin with our first time home buying experience with Dina Piterniece and PorchLight. We were in an incredibly unique and time sensitive situation that was sprung on us in a really busy time in our lives. We first met Dina walking through a random open house and we instantly connected. She went above and beyond at every single opportunity, and really worked as an advocate for us. She explained every step in detail, warned us about things that we would have never noticed or thought about, and ultimately put us in a first home that we absolutely love.
Although she never let on, we know she took time out of her personal life to make sure we were taken care of and we won't forget. I was blown away by how accessible she was and knowledgeable and we appreciated the casual approach vs the formal approach she has as well. As long as Dina is around we won't need to worry about our realtor needs for buying or selling as we've found ours. Thank you Dina for all you did for us!
- Joe & Kelli, Buyers
Dina was absolutely wonderful to work with. Dina is extremely educated and walked us through every step of the way in this very difficult market to be buying in. We were extremely pleased by her and would recommend her to any one who wants to sell or purchase their home. We were dealing with another company before her who was unable to get us in touch with a lender that could meet our needs and pretty much told us we would not be able to buy a home, so when we found Dina, we were very glad we hired PorchLight and her team. Our home buying experience was incredibly smooth and feel that Dina’s experience influenced such a positive result. PorchLight did a superb job and I would not hire any other company to represent us. Dina has also has remained in contact with us after we closed and we have never experienced such a personal connection with a real estate agent, you just don’t get that anymore, with the exception PorchLight.
- Gabriel, Buyer
I would recommend PorchLight Real Estate to anyone looking to buy or sell. I worked with Dina Piterniece, and she was top-notch to work with. She worked with me remotely, as I had relocated to Montana, and was able to answer every question and meet all my needs. Being a first-time seller, I had many apprehensions about selling my home, but Dina took the time to walk me through every step of the process and eased each of my concerns. This process was first class from start to finish, and I wouldn't hesitate to call Dina tomorrow if I had any more real estate needs in Colorado. Thanks again to Dina, and the entire PorchLight Group.
