What Clients are Saying
Here's what our satisfied customers are saying about us:
I recently had the pleasure of meeting and working with Karen Kilde of Porch Light Real Estate Group when my elderly aunt hired Ms. Kilde to assist in the sale of her home of 43 years. I live out of state so knowing that my aunt was in good hands was a huge relief. I cannot say enough about Karen and the way she handled my aunt’s needs. She was extremely professional and knowledgeable, yet she was so caring and compassionate in the needs of my aunt who was 91 at the time! Karen understood that elderly people need extra help and explanation when it comes to technology. She always went to my aunt’s house and thoroughly explained everything in detail and helped her sign every document in person. In addition to the personalized care, Karen marketed the home well and my aunt received top dollar in a short amount of time. My aunt is a very particular person and she loves Karen. She knew Karen was honest and had the utmost integrity, which is why she hired her. Karen went above and beyond when it came to keeping me in the loop of what was transpiring with the sale of my aunts home. She became a friend to both of us and we still keep in touch. Karen also had the resources my aunt needed to help her complete the move and downsize to a much smaller place. Karen recommended two ladies that could help my aunt clean out, dispose of personal property and pack for the move. This was a tremendous help as I could not be there to assist with this big job. In addition, Karen had the recommendation of fantastic movers. Karen even knew the manager where my aunt was moving and helped coordinate a smooth transition for my aunt. A move like this can be trying even when you are young, but Karen made this transition so easy for my elderly aunt. Finally, if you are looking for a professional real estate agent that goes above and beyond, Karen Kilde is the person for you.

Trying to sell an outmoded home that was in considerable disrepair offered some unique challenges for me as the executor of an estate for a deceased friend. I was fortunate enough to work with Karen Kilde of PorchLight Realty to tackle this project. From our very first meeting it was evident that Karen understood the unique situation, and she worked with me to meet the needs of the estate, including working around a timeline that had to be flexible for the family of the deceased. Her recommendations for prepping and staging the house were appropriate and purposeful. Throughout the process—and especially important to me since I lived out of town—she communicated consistently, promptly, and clearly, both from her end as the situation unfolded, and in response to questions and concerns that came from my end. As new realities about the state of the property emerged through the process, we found it necessary to make a number of adjustments. Karen never over-reacted, got frustrated, or panicked. She had a clear strategy in mind, and she modified the strategy appropriately as the circumstances changed, with the end result that a sale was brought to a satisfactory conclusion for all parties concerned. I particularly appreciated her positive attitude, professional demeanor, strong integrity, and very evident love of the work she does. I recommend her without qualification or reservation.

I don't generally leave reviews for anyone unless someone went above and beyond. Karen did that for us. She was awesome to work with. While we knew Karen prior to needing a realtor we did not expect the top notch service we received. Karen Kilde at PorchLight was awesome to work with. We started working with Karen about 3 months before we put our house on the market. She helped us prioritize what we should update on the house. Karen worked hard with the photographer and her marketing team to make sure our house stood out. My wife and I were moving across the country so moving time was hectic for us. Karen came by and did last minute clean up after we left and shoveled our driveway at one point. Talk about going above and Beyond for us!!! Thats not what we expected from our realtor but we loved working with her. Our house sold within 2 months!!! While the buying agent was a little difficult to work with Karen was a miracle worker and sold our house. Thank you KAREN!

Karen Kilde was awesome. Thanks so much Karen!! She made the process of our downsizing as painless as possible. I will continue to work with her and refer her to other family and friends.
- Susan Risley, Buyer/Seller
We had a wonderful experience working with Karen Kilde at PorchLight. It took us almost a year to find a home, and Karen was there with us through it all. She never hesitated to meet with us on evenings or weekends, and was never impatient with us and our small children at showings! She gave us very good advice every step of the way. We would not hesitate to work with Karen again!
- Emily M., Buyer
Our recent home sale was a seamless project from beginning to end! Karen Kilde was superb in guiding us each step along the way with "spot-on" attention to every detail. PorchLight's support team from market shine, photography, and staging consultation proved to be above expectations. Even the clever PorchLight real estate sign drew positive comments from the neighbors. Karen Kilde's personalized attention and recommendations through each facet of the transaction proved to be exemplary in every respect. Our house sold and closed in the time Karen projected. We heartily recommend Karen and the PorchLight team for expert service in the real estate market!

Selling our house was a smooth success, thanks to Karen's guidance and experience. Karen is an incredible asset, and made assessing our market and offers a breeze. We loved working with Karen again, and appreciate her great attitude, perspective, patience, and efficiency. Karen, thank you - you and the team at PorchLight were a joy to work with, and made this such a success for us.
- Ivan, Seller
We loved working with Julie. This is the second home she assisted us in purchasing and she makes the process as easy and as stress-free as it can be. Julie is always super responsive and on top of any questions we had for her. We would highly recommend her to anyone searching for an agent.
- Chris, Buyer
As first-time homebuyers, we could not be more thankful for Julie Woodle and how easy she made the whole process! Julie was patient, communicative, kind, and explained everything to us step-by-step. She made sure we found exactly what we were looking for, and she acted quickly in getting our offer in. I felt like she always had our best interest in mind. She is detail-focused, timely, and extremely on top of everything. She is also very knowledgeable about the Denver market, as we are still fairly new to the area. We closed on our first home yesterday, and we are both unbelievably thankful for Julie’s hard work and patience. We could not have done it without her, nor had a better agent. I would highly recommend Julie to anyone looking to buy their first home, second home, or seventh home. She is the best of the best!! Thanks, Julie!
- Katie & Forrest M., Buyers
It was an absolute pleasure working with Julie to buy my first home. She was professional, prompt, knowledgeable, and best of all fun to work with. We spent countless days looking and I never felt any pressure at all to buy something that wasn’t right for me. The whole process was very smooth, as Julie was there every step of the way. I look forward to working with her again in the future, and would highly recommended her to anybody looking to purchase a home in Colorado.
