What Clients are Saying
Here's what our satisfied customers are saying about us:
Mary Gerwin helped us buy our house to get us ready for our move to Denver and the experience was simply outstanding. She took the time to understand exactly what we were looking for and always put our needs first. When we found the perfect house, she even helped us win out over an all-cash offer! All along the way, she had tons of helpful recommendations for both the process and all the other vendors we needed--any problem we ran into, she always had a solution ready in no time. At one point our lender told me--unprompted--"you know, Mary is simply the best in the business." I completely agree.
- Magnus von Koeller, Buyer
Years ago, I asked friends to help me find a realtor for the out-of-town family of a friend who died suddenly. I got two referrals to Mary Gerwin. Finally, I called Mary to sell my humble condo. She staged it, priced it right and a buyer signed in three days. I’d moved to a different town, so when a stealth leak grew to a tsunami, Mary remained calm. She worked with my claims adjuster, brought in her tested experts and turned a potential disaster into opportunity. The buyer, rather than backing away, delighted in making some feature choices. My insurer told me Mary’s professionalism and her expert repair crew made a big difference in meeting claim requirements. And me? I teach strategic problem solving so I stayed out of her way and watched a master at work. I can’t thank Mary enough for turning what might have been a costly and difficult situation into a speed bump for me. Mary loves what she does and she makes the management of complex problems look easy.

Mary Gerwin is simply the best! We purchased our home in South Park Hill in August and could not be more thankful for her involvement. Coming from another hot market, we were terrified that our search would be endless, but we miraculously landed our first offer, in no small part due to Mary’s remarkable knowledge of the market. She is resourceful, caring, attentive, considerate, and a consummate professional. She diffused every obstacle almost instantly and removed all traces of anxiety. Mary has an endless list of on demand resources that made our purchase as smooth as possible. Thank you!!!

Peggy Chervenak is an amazing professional, experienced and responsive to our relocation needs. She helped us narrow our search and we found the best home, with views of the mountains and close to our Colorado family. She has our highest rating.
- Mary Anne M., Buyer
Mary was absolutely great! She went above and beyond what any agent has done for me in the past. She’s so professional and also very understanding. I’ll never need to look for another agent in Denver.
- Tim Mulville, Homeowner
I cannot recommend Peggy Chervenak’s services enough. I moved to Denver from the northeast and had a small window of time to come out and find my perfect home. While I found the task daunting, Peggy made herself completely available to me and came extremely well prepared with a list of neighborhoods and properties that met my expectations, as well as my pie-in-the-sky hopes for a new home. Along with her professional and expert advice, Peggy’s special insight and attention to detail made the entire experience enjoyable, educational and a lot of fun! She had no ulterior motive, making me feel extremely comfortable to tell her exactly how I felt about each property. I felt that I had a real expert right by my side, and within days we found exactly what I had imagined for my family. I’m over the moon about my new home. Peggy is a straight shooter, extremely knowledgeable, and dedicated to her clients. Thank you Peggy!

It is with pleasure and gratitude that I share my comments on my experience with Mary Gerwin and her team at the PorchLight Group in the listing and sale of my home. I can't say enough about Mary’s professionalism, true caring nature, and extensive knowledge. She is very fair, responsive and yet firmly loyal to her clients. I have known Mary for over nine years – she helped me find and buy this same property, so when it came time to sell, I did not have to think twice who I would charge with representing my interests. Mary has got to be the most knowledgeable real estate person I’ve ever known. I found working with her a joy and felt like she was there to help me during every step of the processes. She emanates a sense of trust-worthiness that makes you feel very secure during what is without a doubt a very involved process. She is a true professional in every sense of the word and puts her clients' interests far above her own. She brings all these qualities to the table for her clients, not just in the real estate transaction, but also in the transition to their new home/community. When I purchased my home from her, she was always available with recommendations for handymen, snow removers, among other professionals. She has always come through with excellent and timely recommendations, and always made me feel like helping me was her highest priority. Mary knows the market, she negotiates strongly, anticipating problems before they can occur, and never takes her eye off the ball. Mary and the PorchLight Group are by far the best option for anyone desiring to sell or buy a property. She goes above and beyond in every phase of the sales effort: useful insights on pre-listing renovations/staging, effective showings, and proactive facilitation during the sale negotiations/due diligence. All of these tasks, whether business-related or interpersonal, were accomplished with a noticeable degree of competence, integrity, and grace. I am truly grateful!
- Victoria L., Homeowner
Peggy was highly recommended by the property manager who was managing my rental property. He works with a lot of realtors so I knew he’d recommend the best. First, Porchlight’s process is seamless. Every detail is well thought out and communicated! Peggy gave me honest feedback and no false hopes. She worked hard to sell my home like it was her priority. From my first call up until closing, Peggy was responsive. Professional, ethical and dedicated, I trustfully recommend Peggy Chervenak.
- Christine G., Seller
My experience of selling through Mary Gerwin and her PorchLight Group was outstanding. I was representing an estate, and there was much I did not know about the house and the property on which it stood. Mary stepped in with great advice and guidance that helped me sell the house in the easiest and most organized way possible. Mary’s familiarity with a number of ancillary businesses that aided in preparing the house for sale, conducting the estate sale of personal property, and staging the house with attractive furniture for the sale was wonderful. We had an excellent offer under contract within a week of putting the house on the market, and the process of moving to closing could not have been easier or more efficient. I would recommend Mary and her PorchLight Group to anyone, and I will definitely engage her again in any future real estate transaction.
- John Congdon, Seller
In Denver’s active and highly competitive market, a seasoned real estate broker is what you need. I found Peggy Chervenak to be everything I needed to keep my deal on the rails through some challenges all the way to a smooth closing. She is smart and kind, responsive and efficient, knowledgeable and prompt, upbeat and professional. That she is a lifelong Denver resident can’t hurt either. Today’s market requires agility, tools and doggedness and for these reasons, I wholeheartedlyâ recommend you use Peggy Chervenak for all of your real estate buying adventures. She will reward you with a job well done! Thank you Peggy; you’ll get all of my referrals.
