What Clients are Saying
Here's what our satisfied customers are saying about us:
My wife and I had the pleasure of working with Elizabeth Martinez for about a year and a half. We were in the market for a second home in the Denver area in order to be closer to our kids and grandkids. Our son and daughter-in-law had purchased their home through Elizabeth, and raved about her. We soon found that everything they had told us about her was true. She spent a lot of time with us, showing us new listings when we came to Denver, and s regularly keeping us abreast of any new listings that fit our needs. We were so impressed with her knowledge, experience, insight, and honesty. There were a few times when we seriously thought about buying a place, but she talked us out of it because she didn't like the quality of construction, the neighborhood, or the reputation of the builder. She always juggled her schedule around to make room for us on weekends even though she had other real estate commitments or had plans to spend with her family. We've purchased real estate on numerous occasions in California, and have never found a real estate that we trusted and respected more than Elizabeth. She is the absolute best, and for anyone who is looking to buy or sell real estate in Denver, your first and only call should be to her.

Elizabeth was a pleasure to work with and a much needed asset when it comes to buying a home in this market. I didn’t realize how competitive the Denver market was when I started this search for a home over a year and a half ago and after patience on my part and Elizabeth’s part I found the right house. Elizabeth is a go getter and knows how to strategically navigate you through the process of buying a house in a market that is in the sellers favor. From writing the offer to some issues that arose in contract Elizabeth was always calm and able to come up with a solution or idea that positioned me favorably I don’t think I would have been able to find the right home and have the keys to my new home in hand today without Elizabeth. I will be sure to use Elizabeth again and will send as many referrals as possible. Thanks for your help Elizabeth you were a pleasure to work with.

I could not have been happier with Elizabeth Martinez or the team at Porchlight. I felt like I had a personal assistant, contract specialist and marketing specialists at my disposal. Elizabeth went above and beyond to help me in every way. She found repair people for me and met them at the property, got estimates, communicated with my tenant, overall solved any problems that arose to get our property on the market in the timeframe we desired.
The cleaning, photography and other online resources to advertise our property could not have been more professional. Those pictures and virtual tours drew over 50 showings in just one weekend.
We listened to Elizabeth's advice on pricing and all our offers were over list, several were far over list.
And during the contracting period Elizabeth and her team took care of everything. Made the paperwork simple and easy for us. We could not recommend Elizabeth and her team any more strongly.

I got my dream house - under budget in this crazy, competitive, and intimidating market! Most of these reviews sound the same, but I can tell you Elizabeth Martinez is no 'average' or even excellent agent - she is a rare and powerful real estate/negotiation wizard!
She went above and beyond anything I ever imagined to make this search, contract, and finally close work for me - seriously I think she used magic. Not only that, but she was my advocate, voice of reason, and I trusted her to know what was best for me. She listened to what I wanted, albeit 'alternative' and helped me to make the best, well informed, and desired choice I could of in choosing my home. Not only did she do everything she could to make sure I was getting a sound investment, she had to navigate a pretty difficult contract/seller situation. She never backed down (even when it was looking not so great for me) and I can't tell you how great it was to have her in my corner. I never doubted that no matter the outcome we would have done everything in our power to make it work - knowing we had 'no regrets' really made me feel in control in a market where the buyer is certainly not in charge. She educated me about the market, the statistics, and made me feel prepared to attack this process. She walked me line by line down my contract so I knew everything that was going to happen/happening. She was available, dependable, and the BEST resource I could have had (I mean obviously, she is a WIZARD!). She even became an expert about urban wells so that we were not walking into a scary primary water source situation. (She didn't want my future cats to be born with three eyes! ;) ) I'm just so happy I worked with Elizabeth - she was so much fun and really supportive (whether I had to hear good/bad news) and she really did an epical job.
I know from personal experience that any other real estate agent and their company would have walked away from my unusual dream house, but Elizabeth made sure I got it and with my best interest in mind. I'm just so happy and so appreciative of her, without Elizabeth we would not have bought in this market - she was the difference! Although I hope I don't ever have to buy again, I will recommend Elizabeth to anyone and everyone because she is a wizard!

Elizabeth was very willing to answer all my questions and to keep me updated on any developments in the process of selling the house. Her professionalism, and willingness to go above and beyond were of great benefit to me and my family. I can wholeheartedly recommend Elizabeth for any realty needs.
- Client, Homeowner
I can not recommend Elizabeth highly enough. She is very knowledgeable of the Denver real estate market, offered good advice on how to best get our home ready to list and went above and beyond to help us with whatever we needed (which was a lot as we were living out of county when we sold our home). The staging was top notch as were all of the marketing materials - PorchLight is top quality and superior to the other brokers we met with. You will not be disappointed.

Elizabeth Martinez made it possible for me to buy the property that my dream home would be built on and also sold my home of 40 years for so much more than I could have ever imagined. Neither aspect was "easy". The sellers for the property were tough negotiators, but the approach, patience, knowledge and professional abilities Elizabeth brought to the table all resulted in getting that property for a much more realistic price. The second stage was getting my "old" home sold. Her advice was stellar. She knows the market and where my time and effort would be best spent to get the most benefit from the sale. Doing the due diligence she gave me the scenarios from "as is" vs a well planned update/makeover. The update/makeover was the winner and my home in a busy market was an instant hit. Multiple daily showings leading up to an open house where there was a line to get in. I had 5 offers within 4 days, all for over asking price. I cannot thank her enough for her availability for questions, straightforward answers, guidance, expertise and her steadfast support. I recommend her whole heartedly. She went beyond the extra mile for me and with her in my corner I was able to build the house of my dreams and sell a beloved home. Thank you from the bottom of my heart.
- Lynn C., Buyer/Seller
She literally goes out of the way, and spends so much time and effort with her clients. She's Awesome. Thank you for our home.
- Amanda T., Buyer
Dunbar found exactly what we were looking for. The house wasn’t on the market yet but with Dunbar’s dedication and business relationships we were able to see the home and get it under contract. The transaction was smooth and the communication was excellent! I highly recommended Dunbar! He knows the business.
- Kevin & Patty H., Buyers/Sellers
Articulate. Competent. Professional. And who can forget patient. The feedback, coaching, and insights you have brought to each conversation have proven invaluable in giving me a lay of the land in Boulder County and what the trade-offs are in considering a home from one neighborhood to the next. Your consistent efforts to help me find the right fit, while never applying pressure, underscores the sincerity you bring to your work.
