Barbara & Mel Backlin

“Chris LaMee came highly recommended to us, so we chose him as our realtor. We were not disappointed! He helped us sell our home in Roxborough in a tough market and helped us locate another residence in Highlands Ranch and negotiate for a fair price.

The attributes of Chris and Banyan Realty that we were most impressed with include:

Follow-up- Chris always returned our calls or e-mails in a very timely manner, and we received feed-back after almost every showing. Dianne Johnson, the administrative assistant, took care of every detail of the closing, and was in constant communication with us. No surprises there.

Professional- Chris was always pleasant and professional, conducting business in a calm, efficient manner.

Persuasive- When the other realtor from Westminster questioned the resale values of Roxborough Park and the slightly higher prices for the Stonehenge area, Chris was able to give valid justifications for the value and prices of this beautiful community.

We were glad that we chose Chris LaMee as our realtor, and Banyan Realty, and would be happy to recommend him to anyone wishing to sell their home.”

““Adam’s experience and network were the key factors in selling my property. He found a buyer in a tough real estate market and it sold in 4 days!””

Charles Shively

““Adam is an amazing broker. He has that very unique combination of a) being wonderful with other people (excellent communicator, seeks to truly understand wants and needs, is very warm and fun, looks to give not receive) and b) has a strong real estate skill set (understands markets, trends, housing stock, finishes, construction, real estate history, etc.) and c) can focus on the details to make sure that everything that needs to be done in a transaction is — and the right way. He’s the best of the best.””

Jim Gosselin

““Adam helped my wife and I buy our most recent home in Stapleton. We would not have found this home without Adam’s help. I am a very demanding consumer and Adam gets it!!! He is all over the process every step of the way. I would highly recommend working with Adam when buying or selling a home. I have and will continue to refer Adam to people I know.” “

Gregory Bante

““Adam is a mircacle worker. My Wife and I have hired him several times now (for both selling and buying homes for us) and he continues to deliver exceptional results through his determined and creative efforts, even in a challenging real estate market. Twice now (since 2004) we were ready to place a full price offer but Adam recommended we hold off until he “runs some numbers.” On both occasions Adam encouraged us to write “less than full price” offers and on both occasions they were accepted. Adam has also remained focused throughout the entire process offering valuable insight during the inspection. Everyone should have Adam on their side.” “

Jay Sturhahn

““I have worked with Adam on 35 sale transactions since 2005 ranging from condominium projects to single family homes. He is a true professional, extreamly focused and results oriented. I have really enjoyed working with Adam as well; we have had a lot of fun over the years. I highly recommend him to all of my friends, business associates and coworkers. Please contact me at 303-320-6607 if you have questions about my experience with Banyan Real Estate.” “

“Kathleen Staker and the whole Banyan Team helped me find and purchase my first home. I was very impressed with Kathleen and how quickly she understood what I was looking for in a home. One of the very first homes she showed me was the one I ended up buying. It had all of the amenities and character that I was looking for. She hit the nail on the head!! If I ever had a question or concern she was readily available to answer my calls. She negotiated an amazing deal on the house and I will forever be grateful! I would definitely recommend using Kathleen and finding your dream home like I did!”

“I would gladly recommend your company to anyone who asked. My Broker was Wilson Leonard, and I couldn’t have been any happier. Wilson is very well informed about the Denver Real Estate market, from knowing the pros and cons of different neighborhoods, to pricing, to comparing property features. His additional insights helped me to make a better decision. He was also helpful in answering the questions I had about financing. My situation was a little unusual and required some additional planning and he was able to help with every aspect.

Wilson is very personable and cheerful. No matter how many times I emailed or called him, he responded quickly and he never made me feel like a bother, no matter how busy he was. He thoroughly explains each step of the process in clear terms and with real world examples.

Most importantly, I always felt he had my best interest at heart. In the beginning we talked about the things I was trying to accomplish in making this move. He listened carefully and never forgot them. After months of looking, and not being able to find what I was looking for, Wilson was also able to “talk me down” when I got desperate and suggested we look at properties that didn’t meet my needs. In fact, many times he suggested that I might be better off staying in my current home, rather than choosing something that didn’t meet my goals and wasn’t as smart an investment as where I was currently living. How many salesmen are willing to make a suggestion that results in “0” commission?

At the end of the process, when there were lots of details to think about, the regular e-mails I received from Dianne Johnson, Closing Manager, were a great back-up to the information Wilson provided, and made the final steps a clear, manageable process.

Lastly, I felt like Wilson went above and beyond researching important details about the contract, property and city where I purchased my home to uncover the information necessary to make the most informed decision and to avoid any adverse outcomes down the road.

Thanks again for a great experience!”
