There are many things I can say about the high quality of service I provide to my home seller and home buyer clients, but probably none would be as credible as testimonials from some of my recent clients themselves. So please take a moment to read the following testimonials. I hope they indicate my experience and integrity, as well as make it clear how much I enjoy helping people with their real estate needs.
“Leslie was great to work with! She was very attentive to all our needs and was available to help us navigate through everything to help us sell our home! Moving is very emotional and having to move out of state because of work and leave beautiful Colorado was double emotional. She was so caring and really helped us get through everything. She sold our home and even helped us ship some things to our daughter that we didn’t want to move with us. Her market analysis was so professional and well made and she is very organized. We would recommend her to anyone looking for a great Realtor to help them sell their home.”
Tom and Michelle – Lakewood (Sellers)
“We started our search for our home over 2 years ago, and had met Leslie through a friend at my wife’s work. It was obvious right away that Leslie cared about what was important to us. She was patient and hung with us even after we “quit” looking for a few long stretches. This spring (2015) Heather and I decided to really get serious about looking for a new place for our family and getting in touch with Leslie to start our search was simple and was like we had never stopped. Leslie definitely cares about her clients and does everything she can to make the home buying experience as easy as possible. Wouldn’t have asked for a better Realtor!!”
Josh and Heather – Lakewood (Buyers)
“We can’t say enough about Leslie’s approach to buying and selling, she was not only a Realtor but a friend and confidant through the entire process. She never talked down to us, she is thoughtful in her approach and guidance and very knowledgeable about houses (structure and design), the market and it’s future. She does her research! In the process of selling one house and building another, we have learned a lot from Leslie and look forward to partnering with her again.”
Samantha and Trapper – Westminster (Sellers)
“We have now worked with Leslie to buy two homes and sell one. I can’t imagine attempting to navigate the quickly moving Denver real estate market without her. She showed incredible patience while we figured out what we wanted and helped guide us through the potentially stressful situation of simultaneously selling and buying. Her knowledge of metro Denver real estate was an invaluable resource to us.”
Ryan and Theresa – Denver (Sellers) and Broomfield (Buyers)
“Leslie was very professional but also very congenial. She followed up on every single detail of the sale. She got our condo management company to respond where we could not. We would not hesitate to deal with her in the future.”
Ken and Terry – Castle Rock (Sellers)
“Leslie made our crazy home buying experience feel like anything but crazy! She was great throughout the entire process and stayed on top of deadlines and other issues that arose. We never felt rushed on days when we saw upwards of 8 houses and Leslie always accommodated our hectic schedule. It was a tough time to buy in the Denver metro area but Leslie made our experience a great one.”
Philip and Courtney – Denver (Buyers)
“We interviewed several Realtors and chose Leslie Monaco for purchasing our first home because of the way she sold herself and her services. With Leslie’s help we were able to find a great home in a tough market. She was professional, low pressure, and she let the facts about her sales record speak for themselves. Leslie has an upbeat attitude, a deep knowledge of real estate, and is a pleasure to work with.
Leslie was excellent at helping us decide on what style of home we wanted to buy and was very knowledgeable in pointing out the pros and cons of the neighborhoods and locations we viewed. She was fast and efficient at getting us to see as many homes as possible in a short time frame. We never felt as if she was pushing us into a home that wasn’t right for us, instead she truly wanted to find us a great house that met our needs. We got to see enough homes to get a good feel for what kind of home we wanted to buy in our price range.
When we found a home that we wanted to buy she was quick to research comparable homes in the same neighborhood to determine what was a fair price for our house, and when it came time to make an offer she gave advice to help our offer stand out from the others. Leslie was also great at assisting us in navigating through the process of closing on our first house and took the time to explain to us what was required at each step along the way.
After we closed on our home, Leslie had references for flooring and heating businesses that were fantastic; we would use them again for their services. This felt above and beyond what was within her job description.
We had a great experience buying our first home with Leslie and we will certainly give her our business in the future.”
Jake and Liz – Westminster (Buyers)
“Leslie helped me find my dream home. Leslie made house hunting fun. I had no worries as she walked me through the whole process. I have the most respect for my new found friend. I would recommend Leslie to my friends!”
Pam – Highlands Ranch (Buyer)
“We can’t thank Leslie enough for her role in selling our father’s house. We live out of state and needed to have work done on his home prior to listing. Leslie acted as project manager while the contractors did their work. She kept us informed, gave sound advice, and sent pictures of the progress. When it was time to list, Leslie was ready with a game plan in place. We listed the house on a Friday, were under contract the following week, and closed within 28 days of listing. None of this would have been possible without Leslie. She brings experience, enthusiasm, and dedication to the job. Thank you Leslie! We wish you continued success.”
Ryan – Littleton (Seller)
“Leslie went above and beyond in order to find us a house in our desired neighborhood when there were few homes to choose from on the market. Her creativity helped us find one of the best units with a fabulous view to boot! Thank you Leslie!”
Wendy and Jay – Lakewood (Buyers)
“If you are looking for a topnotch professional with great attention to detail, and impeccable customer service, look no further! Leslie Monaco was outstanding to work with. She was honest and forthright with us throughout the process; we truly felt as though she had our best interest at heart and was so diligent in answering our many calls and questions, and showing us houses quickly (a necessity in the crazy Denver market). We truly knew how lucky we were to be working with her through the contract process. I believe the detail-oriented way that she worded the repairs the home needed was the reason the seller fixed every single issue. Not to mention Leslie’s inspection recommendations saved us several thousand dollars in sewer repair! The next time we are in the market to buy or sell a home we will be thrilled to work with Leslie again.”
Kaili and Sara – Denver (Buyers)
“It is easy to recommend Leslie thanks to all her hard work and support during my last purchase. Leslie did an excellent job in helping me find exactly the house I was looking for. In addition, although there were some difficulties during the purchase, Leslie did a great job making recommendations, and working to ensure the sale was completed smoothly. I was not only impressed by all of Leslie’s efforts throughout the process, but also with her follow up once the transaction had been completed. Leslie went above and beyond my expectations and I will certainly look forward to working with her again in the future.”
Enrique – Denver (Buyer)
“My wife and I purchased our first home in July 2014! This was a very exciting yet scary endeavor. We got referred to Leslie Monaco by a friend and couldn’t have been happier. Leslie was very patient and professional. Leslie showed us numerous houses until we found the right one. We would gladly recommend Leslie to all of our friends and family who are in the market to buy or sell!!!!”
Craig and Monica – Littleton (Buyers)
“Leslie helped us in so many ways, and her influence was so seamless and subtle, that it is difficult to articulate her impact. We were selling a property shortly after the real estate market had rebounded. In the past we had less than satisfactory experiences with other real estate agents and were dreading the sales process. Leslie was extremely professional, approached the process in an organized fashion, and took the time to really understand us. She made the entire process seem easy, when I knew behind the scenes it is not. She was always poised and unflappable. In the end we were very satisfied and only wish we had another property that we could sell with her since we know now how great she is to work with.”
Carolyn and Jeff – Arvada (Sellers)
“Leslie went beyond my expectations as my Realtor. My husband used Leslie to sell his condo in Lakewood and based on her professionalism and drive to get everything it took to get the deal done with his sale, we were confidant in using her again to sell my Denver property. Once again Leslie took it upon herself to handle every detail, which was so helpful with us living out of the area. When it came down to some challenges at the end with the buyer and their agent, she took additional measures to make sure the deal went through. Leslie’s level of service, real estate and market knowledge combined with the fact that she is extremely pleasant to work with made working with her an excellent experience and I would use her again in a minute.”
Lindsey – Denver (Seller)
“Leslie Monaco was great to work with finding our first home! From the very beginning she was always extremely professional. Leslie was always expedient with responses and completing anything we asked her for help with. I cannot tell you how many houses we got her to show us. I still feel bad for dragging her to almost every house in Denver, and she was so patient the entire time. Once she understood what we were going to really want, our process and determination for looking for a home, she was a house finding superhero. She would call us within 15 minutes of a house hitting the market, and say, “we have to see this house tomorrow,” and sure enough we would be the first ones to see a house. Leslie would even call us, or go see houses with us on her days off. We felt bad having her do that, but we all knew we had to be aggressive in the 2014 Denver housing market. Leslie was great at walking me though the process. She would patiently work with me through every question and concern I had regarding the process. Leslie is super sweet, and just plain amazing! She even stopped at to get us food one time when we were literally dying of hunger to make sure we could push-on to see all the homes we had on our list! Thank you Leslie! Like you said, “if it is meant to be, it will all work out.” I am glad we waited and worked so hard because we now live in the home that was everything we imagined!”
Chandler – Denver (Buyer)
“We would highly recommend Leslie to any of our friends and family. She was extremely knowledgeable about the market and pointed out important details of each house to us that we would have otherwise missed. She was also very patent as we looked at probably 20 houses before we found “the one.”
Becky and Erik – Centennial (Buyers)
“We used Leslie to both market our home and find it’s replacement. Leslie was recommended to us by a friend who said she was a true real estate professional. We found out how true that statement was in our first face-to-face meeting. Leslie laid out her plan on how she would market our home and find us our new home. Once we gave her the go ahead the whirlwind began. According to the formal marketing plan she provided; she brought in a stager, photographer, appraiser and a home inspector. A week later and a dozen showings we were under contract. She guided us through the buying process with the same professionalism. It was refreshing to work with someone who does what they say they’d do.”
Tom and Pat – Littleton (Sellers & Buyers)
“As a first time home owner I was leery of the whole process because I was unsure where to place my trust. Leslie was a very pleasant surprise because not only was she extremely professional, her attitude and willingness to go above and beyond really was a breath of fresh air, especially in today’s world. The fact that she stayed in touch after we bought the house meant a lot. I would definitely recommend her to anyone.”
Jacob and Francesca – Westminster (Buyer)
“Leslie Monaco was wonderful! As first time homebuyers we had no idea where to go or what to do to purchase a home. Leslie was so informative; she walked us through each step of the process and made sure that my husband and I were comfortable and informed during each phase. She was instrumental to our home buying experience and we credit her with making our dream of homeownership a reality.”
Jesse and Staci – Denver (Buyers)
“I was referred to Leslie by a trusted Realtor friend who knew I was returning to Denver after ten years away. It was a tight market when I looked, meaning there was very little to choose from and had to act quickly when good properties listed. Leslie made me feel very comfortable in finding just the right place for me. Ever the professional, Leslie will work hard with you to find your home.”
“I saw almost 30 homes during my home search with Leslie, and the entire experience was second to none! Leslie has a great eye for spotting potential homes, even for the pickiest clients like me. Leslie’s experience with the market trends, locations, construction, and even types of homes was a refreshing experience during a time that can be highly stressful. Leslie truly is, “best in class!”
Mark – Littleton (Buyer)
“I am writing this letter not only as a referral letter but also a thank you letter. My wife and I chose Leslie as our listing agent, as well as our buying agent. When we listed our house Leslie sat down with us and was very specific on what exactly we needed to do to get top dollar for our house, and it worked. We purchased our new home at a time when there was not a lot of inventory available, and Looking at a lot of houses gave us a good sense of how hard Leslie was working for us. She was there for us to answer questions and also she helped calm us when it felt like we would never find our home. We could see the difference in a house that was “staged” properly vs. one that was not. Leslie listened to our needs and wants and gave great advice when it came to looking at homes. We found our dream home and again we were amazed at how hard Leslie worked to make sure everything went smooth. Thank you Leslie, we are so happy in our new home, but we will miss the Days of driving and looking at house after house. We will refer you to everyone we know because the level of service you provided was unmatched.”
Jason and Carlie – Northglenn (Sellers) and Littleton (Buyers)
“Leslie Monaco is a professional Realtor that went above and beyond what I expect from a Realtor, from driving us to many various home sights to, at times, rearranging her schedule to be able to spend more time with us. She had great input about the pros and cons of features of the different homes and the pluses and minuses of the various communities in which we were looking. We were also unsure about some of the instructions that our lender was asking for and Leslie helped us over these hurdles. Leslie is very dedicated to her clients and she will do whatever is necessary to make the home buying experience as stress free as possible. Even though Leslie is very professional she has a wonderful, friendly personality and is very easy to work with. My wife and I would highly recommend Leslie as a Realtor to anyone looking to buy a home in the Denver Metro area – she is great!”
Ron & Joy – Brighton (Buyer)
“Thank you! We could say that a million times and it wouldn’t be enough. You were amazing to work with. Your fun and positive attitude made finding a house even more exciting. We valued your honesty, patience and input in the journey to find the perfect house! We would be happy to recommend you to everyone we know! We are a little sad we won’t be seeing you as much, but know we will work with you in the future”
Guy and Jessi – Arvada (Buyers)
“Leslie helped me sort through all the options, paperwork and craziness that comes with purchasing a new home. I felt she was extremely helpful and has some of the best customer service skills I have ever received. She works hard and I always felt comfortable. I can not be happier with the results. She comes highly recommended and when I have a future home purchase, I will be working with her again.”
Matt – Lakewood (Buyer)
“Leslie made the process of buying my first home a truly seamless and pain-free experience. She proved to be an excellent resource in every aspect including market/comp analysis, shopping for loans, contract negotiation, as well as all the other intangibles that come with purchasing and moving into a new home. She is a pleasure to work with and I wholeheartedly recommend her to others.”
Nick – Denver (Buyer)
“Leslie was a great real estate partner for me. I had started my search working with another company, and was not happy with my initial results. Leslie took the time to really understand what it is I was looking for, to the extent that I fully trusted her to screen properties when I wasn’t able to immediately come see them. I was buying at the peak of 2013, and faced a very competitive market during my search. Leslie was great at helping me to separate out the good buys from the inflated-priced options, and what would have good long-term value for me with my needs. It didn’t take too long for us to find the exact right property for me, and when we did, Leslie did everything she could to ensure I got it, which I did! The first-time home buying process is overwhelming, to say the least, and I really felt like I had a partner by my side to help get me through it.”
Lauren – Denver (Buyer)
“I am pleased to recommend Leslie as a skilled professional Realtor. She did a superb job in listing, selling and closing on my home in Arvada in the fall of 2012. Her recommendations in staging the home for sale really made a big difference as well. The selling offer came through within two weeks of the home being listed – and at the top tier in pricing. It was a pleasure to work with Leslie and I heart fully endorse her services.”
Ivan – Arvada (Seller)
“We are so happy with our choice of Realtor! Leslie was the perfect one for us. We were moving to Colorado from Missouri with no idea on where to live, what the pricing was, school district, shopping etc. Leslie was not only caring about finding a perfect home for us but also helped us find the right city for our family to settle in. She took a personal caring interest in our son as well as the little man we were expecting.
With all that in consideration we are so happy with the house, city and environment she helped us find. She made the transition as smooth as possible, and she adds a personal touch that makes you feel comfortable and at ease. She went above and beyond her job duties as a Realtor and for that we would recommend her to anybody!”
Paul and Vanessa – Parker (Buyers)
“Thanks to Leslie our property sold in no time. She was very professional and gave us great resources in order to get our property ready for sale. We will definitely use her again. No questions!”
Gerry and Eva – Arvada (Sellers)
“I enjoyed working with and getting to know Leslie. I can fully and highly recommend her to do your real estate deals. She definitely goes above and beyond just selling or helping you to buy a home!!!”
Jacklynn – Broomfield (Seller)
“I was looking to sell my condo quickly so I could move forward with the purchase of my new home and Leslie got it done. The marketing of the property was outstanding. The professional photos really made the property stand out when compared to the other listings in the area. I was under contract in less than 1 week and had backup offers as well!! Leslie is extremely knowledgeable and was always available when something needed her attention. The whole process went very smoothly and quickly. I will definitely recommend Leslie to anybody interested in buying or selling a home. Many, many thanks!!”
Corinne – Arvada (Seller)
“As a first time home buyer, the whole home buying process was new and scary. Leslie helped me through each step with poise and composure that I was not expecting in someone so young. She also worked within my parameters to find a home that I am truly pleased with. During a hiccup with the closing date, Leslie was able to help me work with the lender to find a good solution for all parties.
Working with Leslie you will not feel any pressure and have a truly knowledgeable assistant in your search for a place to call home.”
Jon – Castle Rock (Buyer)
“We are so happy with our choice to have Leslie Monaco help us sell our home. Leslie is very professional and took the time to sit down with us and explain all the details of her services before we even made the decision to work with her. She listened to what we were looking to accomplish, and she gave her advice based on what was best suited for us.
Leslie is also very determined, she was very proactive in handling all of the offers we received and walked us through which options worked best for us. She was always available, and even made the effort to help us lock in an offer on a holiday weekend.
Leslie gave us very helpful information on what to renovate or modify with our house to make it more appealing and easier to sell. The process of selling our house went very smoothly. If a problem arose, Leslie was on top of it and handled it promptly and professionally. Her advice turned out to be very good, and we ended up selling our house for more than we actually set out to get.
We would recommend Leslie Monaco to any of our friends and family who want to sell their house and we know she would work hard to help them accomplish that goal.”
Mike and Holly – Aurora (Sellers)
“Our second home sale with Leslie was our best experience yet. When we decided to list our home we were uncertain of where to be begun and Leslie came through with all the steps. She did an initial walk through giving us suggestions for ways to stage and organize our home to maximize the appeal to buyers. She also prepared a packet of information with comparables, sales and marketing plan, etc. which gave us a very detailed explanation of the process. Throughout the process she as very knowledgeable, professional and set realistic expectations for our home sale. When offers began coming in she showed great negotiation skills, getting us under contract at a price that we were both very happy with. It was impressive that she even came out with the appraiser to ensure that nothing was overlooked, and that he saw the value in our home, appraising it for top dollar. I know that this contributed to our home being sold at the highest price per square foot in the neighborhood. She was even able to make recommendations regarding inspection items which saved us thousands! It’s apparent that she really has her client’s best interest in mind; it is always a great experience working with her.”
Kim and Curtis – Arvada (Sellers)
“Leslie Monaco helped us buy the house that we will raise a family and retire in. When we first started looking at houses to buy as a newly married couple, we had very specific ideas about what we wanted. We sat down with Leslie for a few hours she asked questions of us that only an experienced professional would think to ask. As part of this initial process, Leslie was also able to provide unbiased information on the pluses and minuses of features, location, build quality, and a whole host of other details that we hadn’t even considered before. After this meeting, and a day of touring homes, it was clear what we thought we wanted was entirely different than what we actually wanted. Leslie’s conscientiousness and ability to really listen to the things that were important to us as we were touring allowed us to refocus or search. The second house we saw on our second day of touring was ’The One’ and we’re so grateful Leslie’s superb market and property level expertise led us to our home. Putting the deal together with the seller was also a smooth process with Leslie due in no small part to her constant communication and availability. We knew that she had our best interest at heart and was working very hard on our behalf to put together a transaction that we both understood and were very pleased with. But beyond all of the excellent communication, market knowledge, and negotiation skills, Leslie is a joy to work with. If we weren’t going to stay in our home for the next 40 years, there is no doubt that we’d be calling Leslie Monaco to help us sell our home and find us a new one.”
Josh and Katie – Highlands Ranch (Buyers)
“Thank you so much for all your help in selling my Dad’s condo in Denver. 2 months from the time it went on the market till the date of the sale, fabulous! I really liked your communication style, always letting me know what to expect and when important things were due. Very professional and always offering to help when something needed to be done. You saw to it that problems were resolved. By communicating with the H.O.A and finding information on your own you saved me a lot of headaches. By going above and beyond the expectations of a Realtor, I will always recommend you to my friends.”
Christine – Denver (Seller)
“We would like to take this opportunity to thank Leslie for all the effort, time, and especially kindness she demonstrated while working with us to find a place we could call home. After our first meeting with Leslie, it was clear that we found the person we could trust to walk us through the multiple steps of buying our first home. Being first time home buyers can be one of the most stressing, frustrating, and deceiving experience someone can go through. However, we felt that Leslie was patient and took the time to clearly communicate with us the different steps needed to purchase a home, and was always welcoming the many questions we had for her. We never felt rushed nor pressured and this was an important key in keeping us comfortable and relax while exploring the market.
Leslie’s knowledge of the Denver area was extremely helpful in finding a neighborhood that matched our criteria. Leslie was of great help on narrowing down our list of must-have’s for the house, and once we found a few that we liked, she was very helpful in describing the advantages and disadvantages of each house. What surprised us was the great amount of research that Leslie had done to compare the house we had settled on with similar ones in the neighborhood. This helped us understand the current state of the neighborhood and the actual value of our home. In addition, Leslie has been great at following up with us on the status of any pending items, such as our furnace. We definitely put value in the relationship that we built with her.”
Megan and Charles – Englewood (Buyers)
“Leslie came to our 1959 vintage home to help us begin our house hunting journey. We were impressed with her knowledge of the market and the plan she had for approaching our search and the services she offered for both buying and selling a home. While there, she gave us a range she thought our current house would sell for and after finding our dream home, she put our old house on the market and it sold in two months exactly within that range. She gave us valuable advice on what to do to prepare our house for staging and even provided a professional stager to instruct us on how best to present each room. Leslie also provided an excellent professional photographer who created a great set of photographs of our home and yard (which our buyers said motivated them to see the house), and Leslie herself took very professional panoramic videos of walking through our home to show it at its best.
Selling a home in today’s down marketplace requires an agent that is experienced and knows how best to market and present the home to buyers. Leslie Monaco is exemplary of such a Realtor. We found her friendly, hardworking, upbeat, and very professional. We would not hesitate to highly recommend her to anyone considering selling or buying a home in the Denver Metro area.”
David and Jill – Aurora (Sellers)
“Leslie Monaco really made a big difference in my home-buying experience. She was able to find properties that meet my needs in a very short time, and she worked hard in negotiations to make sure that I was able to purchase it at the price I wanted. She is a true professional in every sense of the word. I received regular phone calls and e-mails that kept me informed of everything transpiring during the process, and she was extremely diligent in ensuring that all my questions were answered and that I was fully aware of all of the contractual implications involved at all stages of the long and arduous process. In every aspect of the home-buying process, Leslie exhibited impeccable work ethic, courtesy and respect, and true dedication to ensuring my needs were met. I’d be more than happy to answer any questions pertaining to my great experience with Leslie.”
George – Lakewood (Buyer)
“Leslie spent many hours searching for a new home that would suit us. After visiting a few homes and discussing our needs with her, we narrowed our many requirements down to a shorter but very specific list. Leslie was very knowledgeable about each of the neighborhoods she took us to visit and would start each day’s house hunt with information on the pros and cons of the areas we would be looking at. Her concerns included all aspects of the house from structural issues to room layouts to potential heating and cooling problems and even the to the quality of the baseboards. She really educated us on what we should be looking at when it came to buying a home and neither of us were first-time homebuyers!
We visited 106 homes before we finally found just what we were looking for. Leslie never gave up on us and never lost her sense of humor even though we think we may have set a record for the number of homes physically looked at. Her main concern throughout the long hunt was that we buy a house we absolutely loved and that we not settle for anything less. Her knowledge and advice about the process of putting in an offer and negotiating the various steps of buying the home were extremely valuable. We are grateful for all her hard work and feel we made a new friend. We would not hesitate to highly recommend her to anyone considering selling or buying a home in the Denver Metro area.”
David and Jill – Aurora (Buyers)
“Our experience with Leslie was both outstanding and unique. We worked with another Realtor before and thought their services were lacking and unsatisfactory. Our lender recommended meeting with Leslie. Leslie made us feel like she had an interest in our well-being, which is comforting while making such a large purchase. She made us both feel knowledgeable throughout the home buying process. As first time home buyers, we were unfamiliar with the process and Leslie was very willing to answer any questions we had at anytime. She was also willing to answer questions from our family and understood their concerns. Leslie provided us with a schedule and kept us informed with our upcoming deadlines. If anybody were in need of a Realtor, we would immediately direct them to Leslie. She is an amazing professional Realtor who we feel provides excellent services.”
Corey and Crystal – Thornton (Buyers)
“My husband and I decided to buy our first home in 2010. I asked around for a recommendation and my parents gave me Leslie’s name. I called her and explained our situation. Leslie immediately started working to help us find the perfect house for our expanding family. The process took us about 10 months but Leslie was with us every step of the way. She was very patient as we worked out our finances and was so knowledgeable about the area that we were interested in. When showing us houses, she looked for the little things that we would never even think to look for in a house. Once we found our house, she worked with us on everything including putting in the offer, counter offers and being present during the inspection. Now that we have been in the house for almost a year, we still get emails from Leslie regarding everything from the housing market to a reminder to change our HVAC filter. I have given Leslie’s contact information to several of my colleagues and friends and would recommend her to anyone!”
Brooke – Littleton (Buyer)
“In the winter of 2009, I was embarking on the biggest purchase of my life: my first home. I couldn’t have asked for a better Realtor in Leslie. My immediate impression of Leslie was her upbeat and welcoming attitude. She always had time for any questions and/or concerns I had, whether it was comparables to warranties. We had seen a good dozen homes before we found the one. She took note of everything I wanted and made it happen. Even when I was ready to walk away, she was always optimistic that what I wanted was out there. If I hadn’t listened to her I would probably still be in an apartment wasting my money on rent.
A month after moving into my home, I received a notice from my homeowners association stating that I had missed a payment. Leslie was more than happy to contact the association and have the issue straightened out without me even asking. Leslie continues to follow-up with reminders to replace my furnace filter, and with tips and updates regarding the market. It has been 2 years now and Leslie continues to be available and reliable with any concerns I may have. I would highly recommend her to anyone interested in purchasing a home. I am lucky to have her as a Realtor and a friend.”
Valarie – Parker (Buyer)
“This was our first hunting experience and our decision to use Leslie was the best one we made. Leslie was so helpful and resourceful during the entire process. The thing that I found most helpful was that she was always around to answer any of our questions at any time. I never felt pressured about any decision. For being first time buyers things did get pretty confusing and stressful at times, thankfully Leslie was there to work us through each step. Working with Leslie made our whole experience positive and exciting!”
Eric and Ericka – Littleton (Buyers)
“I highly recommend Leslie as a real estate agent. I was a first time home buyer with very little knowledge of home buying and Leslie helped me throughout the whole process. She helped to make informed decisions about purchasing my home and made sure I understood everything. She was always available to answer questions, no matter how big or small. I truly enjoyed working with Leslie and will use her again when I being looking to purchase my next home. Thank you so much Leslie for all your hard work!”
Matt – Denver (Buyer)
“Leslie Monaco helped my husband and I purchase our first home in August 2009. Not only were we naïve first time homebuyers, but we fell in love with a short sale property which resulted in an even more arduous and drawn out process. Leslie was with us every step of the way as we negotiated and waited for responses from the seller’s two banks. She was in constant contact with the seller’s agent and called us immediately after receiving any news or updates. Leslie was an invaluable ally in the process as she coordinated multiple counter offers and subsequent contract extensions as we waited for the seller’s banks to approve the short sale.
Leslie was always available and willing to answer any questions we had about the process, and her dedication made us feel as though we were her only client. We never asked a question that she was unable to answer, and as first time homebuyers we asked her EVERYTHING. We appreciated that Leslie provided free access to an extensive MLS property listing site which was far superior to other online search clients and allowed us to search for properties whenever it was convenient for us. Leslie was very accommodating to our busy schedules and quickly coordinated showings of the properties in which we were interested. We were most impressed by Leslie’s comprehensive and detailed appraisal analysis which gave us a very accurate estimate of property value and functioned as a solid negotiating tool.
Even years after closing on our home, Leslie is still a valuable resource to us and provides recommendations for contractors and maintenance companies that provide the same outstanding level of service that she does. Leslie Monaco is the reason we were able to attain our dream home within our limited budget, and I would not hesitate to recommend her services to anyone in the market for a home.”
Jaime and Michael – Castle Rock (Buyers)
“When it came to selling our home, Leslie was a godsend. She helped us sell our home in a hurry, even in this tough economy. She walked us through all of the steps beginning to end and was always there for us to hear our fears and concerns and answer our questions. She provided straightforward, valuable advice; from preparing our home to go on the market, to pricing our home. Leslie really does her research, she takes into account the most current and relevant information available and then presents it in a clear way. On top of all that she is really warm and friendly. We knew she really cared about us and the sale of our home. Looking back on our sale of our home, I can’t believe how quickly it sold! I know it was because we received excellent counsel throughout the entire process. Leslie really knows her stuff. We couldn’t be more pleased with the job she did and the end result!”
Ryan and Genevieve – Wheat Ridge (Sellers)
“I was a first time home buyer and didn’t have much of a budget to work with. Leslie took the time to show me every home I wanted to see, and accommodated my schedule (showing on weekends and weeknights). She was extremely knowledgeable and patient when explaining the process to me. I was impressed with Leslie’s caring attitude throughout the months of our working relationship. Even during the home inspection when I had a “freak out” moment, she was kind enough to explain what was going on and break down issues. I’ve now lived in my house for 2.5 years and could not be happier. I love my house and really feel that Leslie was a big part of bringing me to it.
I can’t speak highly enough of Leslie Monaco. I would (and have) recommend her to anyone looking to purchase a home. I know I will be using her again to help sell my home when the time comes.”
Jill – Aurora (Buyer)
“When deciding to place my house on the market I had a strong feeling that it would be pretty difficult to sell in a timely manner, I called Leslie and she was able to help us right away. She did an amazing job putting this place on the market the day I decided I wanted to sell. She kept up with me and helped by giving us ideas on what we should do to sell the property even faster. She made the whole selling your property run smoothly and the most time efficient. With the situation I was in, I was nervous about our place selling at the price we wanted it to do. Twenty one days after being on the market and many showings later we got a contract. Leslie also made sure that our house appraised at its very best value. She exceeded our expectations put in a lot of hard work and effort on her part. We got our place sold fine and with her hard work we are on our way to close on another property. I would recommend Leslie to anybody that is looking now or even looking later to use as their agent. I feel that she is really knowledgeable with real estate. If you don’t want an agent that beats around the bush then she is the agent for you. I hope you have a happy buying experience and an even better one with a real estate agent like Leslie Heldenbrand.”
Curtis and Kim – Denver (Sellers) and Arvada (Buyers)
“Margie and I want to take this opportunity to say thanks for all your Extra effort selling our condo in Woodstream Falls. Because of your drive, knowledge and hard work the sale was over 15% higher than any appraisal that was available via the MLS. Thinking out-of-the-box and finding several properties in the area that sold for much more than anything in Woodstream Falls in the past year that was not in MLS was brilliant. Not only is this good for us it is also good for all owners in Woodstream Falls. In addition you sold and closed our property in about 4 weeks during very tough market conditions. Thank you for being a “Professional” through out the process. We will use you for any real estate transaction in the future and will recommend you to friends and family. Thanks again and great job!”
Randy and Margie – Denver (Sellers)
“This was our very first property hunting experience, and Leslie made the whole process very understandable and smooth. As we learned more of what we wanted in a property though the search, Leslie catered to our changing needs. It was a fun and enlightening experience.”
Kenton and Jenny – Denver (Buyers)
“Leslie Monaco was involved as our Realtor as we searched for a condo for our daughter. Her personal attention to our needs was outstanding! Leslie took the time to listen and learn about the features and desired location options for the property. She was always accommodating to our schedule requests in the search process. We also really appreciated Leslie’s communication efforts. She was readily available and quick to reply or respond to phone calls and emails. I think we most appreciated the fact that Leslie was not engaged in the process to make a sale but to sincerely find a good home for our daughter. That personal touch was apparent from the beginning. From start to finish, Leslie was detailed and professional. Her friendly and outgoing personality made the whole process a pleasurable experience!”
Mark and Kathy – Denver (Buyers)
TESTIMONIALS FOR DOUG HUTCHINS AND LESLIE MONACO

Since we are new to the area they have helped us settle into the community as smoothly as possible.”
Ken and Paula – Castle Rock (Buyers)
“As first-time buyers, new to the Denver area we were intimidated and overwhelmed by the house hunting and home buying process. Doug and his partner Leslie eased many of our fears and navigated us through the entire process. We cannot thank Doug and his team enough for all their work to ensure a smooth relocation to CO.”
Ian and Jodie – Highlands Ranch (Buyers)
“In our search for a home in Denver recently, our son, who lives there, initiated an association with Doug Hutchins as our Realtor/Broker. Our relationships with Doug proved to be a positive and rewarding experience. Doug and his associate, Leslie Monaco, worked diligently to assist us in finding just the right property for our needs. Doug kept us informed of all contract obligations and provided us with the tools to understand our responsibilities in the process. Doug always made himself available to discuss any questions/issues that were of concern to us. My husband, Scott and I highly recommend Doug for his professionalism and his development of a home buying partnership.”
