"I really enjoyed working with Tom and David as I bought my new townhouse. Tom was very understanding, patient, and really listened to what I was looking for and wanted in a new home. No question I asked was too small or dumb, and he was quick to answer or get back to me so I never felt ignored. Even when I ran into delays, both Tom and David were always there to help me and work with me along the way. I recommend them highly." - Robert B.

"The David Schlichter team is as good as it gets. We met with a half dozen realtors, and the personalized touch of Caitlin was what sealed the deal for us. She helped us purchase our very first home, and what an amazing experience it was. For first time buyers, we had noooooo idea what we were getting into, but Caitlin made it painless and was perfect when it came to communicating. She listened to what we wanted and made time for us just days after having a baby of her own! The service is flawless...exactly what you want when negotiating a large, complex transaction. She set deadlines and anytime we had a question for the seller's agent, Caitlin was on it. They are a fun group who knows the Denver market as well as ANY and we look forward to working with them again in the future. Cheers!" - Tighe B.

"My husband and I primarily worked with Tom. He was professional, knowledgable and very easy to communicate with. After our initial phone conversation, we made a quick decision to purchase a new build. Tom was available to review the contract on such short notice. He also took care of contacting the sales teams and getting all of our questions answered from them. Tom showed up to all of our pre-construction meetings and checkins with the builders. We definitely recommend Tom and his team! He made the whole buying process so easy for us." - Jennifer R.

"My husband and I cannot say enough about what an amazing team this is. We worked directly with Caitlin on a day to day basis but we had the whole team's support. Caitlin was so professional, responsive and helpful throughout this process. We were first time home buyers and not fully sure what to expect in such a crazy market. She helped us along the way and we were able to find a dream home. Caitlin did all the heavy lifting not only during our home search but also throughout the contracting and closing process. I would recommend this entire team and plan to use them for our next home search :)" - Nicole J.

"We loved working with Caitlin and the full team. Caitlin was super responsive and understood exactly what we were looking for. And it was great to have David and Tom available for showings if Caitlin couldn't be there. The whole team is knowledgeable and easy to work with - which made buying our home relaxing and fun. We were referred to the team by a friend and we'll continue to refer them because we were extremely happy with our experience buying our first home." - Elizabeth K.

"David and Tom were great in helping us to buy an investment property in Denver. We mostly worked with Tom, but David served as a resource when there was a specific question we wanted other insight on.

We do not live in Denver so Tom helped us to see a lot of places and worked around our schedule when we were in town.

Tom was very patient throughout the process and very nice throughout it all. We were probably more demanding clients and also went through a rather arduous process (made offers on 5+ places, went under contract but fell out for 1, and went through a negotiation process for another before finding this home). We also had a difficult financing process and Tom strategically helped us advocate with the seller and helped us deal with the lender as well.

Tom and team is equipped to handle complicated transactions and has an amazing attitude as well. Very appreciative of their team and would recommend!
" - Tan K.

"It is sad that I haven't written this review until now (chalk it up being a new home owner?). Tom was fantastic to work with and made the entire process easy for these first time home buyers. Tom took us to many properties around town and helped up understand the entire process at each stage of the game. We were still narrowing down our criteria when we saw several homes and he was patient and informative without being pushy or opinionated. When it came time for the offer Tom helped guide us through the process and I know his recommendations ultimately helped us being selected as the buyers (18 offers in just a few short days was what we were up against!). He was supportive and so excited for us and it really made us feel like we had made the right choice. He was the first one to "welcome us home"! There were some things that weren't caught in the inspection but they also weren't tested since the inspection happened on a colder day (sprinkler system and AC- AC didn't work due to an Xcel energy saver box and the sprinkler system has an outside broken pipe that we will have repaired at the end of summer). Other than those minor hiccups I also think the inspection was fantastic and informative (inspector was a referral from Tom's team). The inspection came with an automated report and since we were present during the inspection the gentlemen took the time to explain several different things about the home that have already come in handy- very similar to how Tom helped us with the rest of the process! We had received Tom's information from a friend of a friend and I am so glad we did. I also plan on referring all of my home buying or selling friends to this team. If you see this, Tom, Dani and I still plan on inviting you to the housewarming party- we just haven't planned it yet! Thank you again for all did in getting us our first home!" - Samantha L.

"Lovedddd (times 1009809) our experience working with David and Tom! We were selling our current home while also trying to purchase a new one - definitely a stressful time, of course, with lots of moving pieces and these two made it an awesome experience. Good communication, great guys, and they had our backs throughout it all. Couldn't recommend them more!" - Kara S.

"Another 5 star review for this team? Yes! I worked with David to sell my Denver home and had such a great experience. David is extremely knowledgable and his expertise, I believe, sold my home in one day for over asking. He had great communication with me during the process, was great in explaining all the various options and what they meant, and always responded in a timely manner. David made this such an easy process for me. He definitely had my back throughout the process. He is an overall really nice guy and I highly recommend him as a realtor." - Liz H.

"As first time home buyers, we didn't know where to start. David made it easy and non-threatening and we met for beers at a local brewery to start talking about the process. He walked us through the process, some of the real estate jargon, and set us up with a way to see homes in our desired area and price range. Though we knew little, he was positive and excited for us--and he definitely put our minds at ease.

I know that I'm not the easiest person to work with: I email at all hours, ask questions that probably seem mundane, and I would typically want to see anywhere between 2 and 10 houses on a weekend. David never complained...and he saw us most weekends for a solid 4 months while we went through the process. On the contrary, he emailed back (usually within hours, at the most) and would set up any and all showings as quickly as possible. This was HUGE in such a competitive market. There were even a few times that he was out of town when we wanted to see houses, and David arranged for colleagues to show us those houses. His colleagues were just as professional, polite, and helpful as he is.

We put in numerous offers, and David would work tirelessly over a weekend to make those happen. When we finally went under contract, David called regularly us to talk through any questions, he advocated on our behalf with the seller's agent, and he recommended a fabulous lender as well.

If we had to choose one word to describe David, it would be reliable: exactly what you want and expect from a realtor. I asked him numerous times for his personal opinion, and that is precisely because he makes it very easy to trust him. This is a good thing! We have passed along his name to numerous friends in the Denver area, and we can't speak highly enough of his services. We will continue to work with him whenever we are buying or selling a home in the future.

"The Denver real estate market is fast and fierce, and a real estate agent can really make or break your experience buying a home. Caitlin is a top-notch realtor. Coming into the Denver housing market from a much less competitive market we were a little nervous about the process, but Caitlin quickly gave us confidence with her knowledge of the Denver area and her incredible responsiveness. There were times when she was willing to meet me for a showing with hours notice. During showings she had a quick eye for potential problems or perks in the home and helped us to think through decisions about offers carefully, never feeling the pressure that this kind of market can bring. The home we ultimately bought had a few problems that needed to be mitigated and Caitlin was a great negotiator with the seller's agent. Once we were under contract she was extremely helpful in contacting inspectors and contractors for repair estimates. I would highly recommend working with her if you're looking to buy a home in the Denver area!" - Sadie V.

"We had a great experience working with Caitlin. She was professional, knowledgeable, and easy to work with. She was very organized and always followed up our phone calls with a written email of what we talked about. This was so helpful to refer back to as we moved forward in the buying process. We felt very supported by Caitlin and her teammates through the often overwhelming experience of buying and selling a home. We HIGHLY recommend Caitlin!" - Victoria K.

"We recently sold a home with David's assistance. He is truly the best realtor we've encountered throughout nearly 40 years of multiple moves and real estate transactions. He was very thorough in his market analysis, recommendations for pre-sale preparation of the home, comprehensive marketing of the home, and contract negotiations. We would not hesitate to seek his expertise in the future and to recommend his team to others." - Jill M.

"When my fiancee and I decided to buy our first home, 2000 miles away from where we were living, we knew we'd have a lot of challenges in front of us. Fortunately, a family member introduced us to David Schlichter, and he proved to be a great partner throughout our home buying process.

He started with a tour of available homes in the Denver area. We weren't sure exactly where in the city we wanted to live, so he showed us many options and spent a good amount of time explaining the pros and cons of different areas. It became clear very quickly that David has a great sense for the market in Denver, and which neighborhoods were the best choice for us. This sort of information is invaluable, and just what we wanted to have from our real estate agent.

During showings and once we were ready to submit offers, David's knowledge and experience really came into play. He would let us form our own opinions of the property, but was always quick to give his opinion when asked, and pointed out many features of the houses we would not have noticed, had he not been there.

David was also a strong negotiator when dealing with the sellers' agents. We had no doubt that he always had our best interested in heart, and would provide us with good counsel on the terms of the sale.

In the end, we closed on a beautiful historic home in our perfect neighborhood, and we both could not be happier. If we ever do decide to sell, David's will be the first number we call, and both my fiancee and I would happily recommend his services to anyone buying or selling a home in Denver.

"David and Tom are exceptional at what they do. I could go on and on about how obnoxious of a client I was, but suffice it to say I am blown away at their knowledge and customer service. Not to mention, the first house I put an offer on is the home I just closed on! Thanks guys" - Trace F.

"I can't say enough about "uncle Tom"...seriously, he became part of our family. Coming from out of state, Tom showed us so many properties, in all different areas, because we didn't know what we didn't know. His patience, knowledge, and candor was so refreshing. He let us buy a house, versus trying to sell us one. Multiple trips later, when we vectored on the right property, he was instrumental in the negotiation strategy and once we had an acceptable offer, all of the steps through close (thanks to Tom, we got a new roof). I can't say enough good things about Tom, and the lending team he connected us with. The white glove treatment was fabulous, and I can't even describe how much work it was. Thank you "uncle Tom."" - Brian C.

"It was an absolute delight purchasing my new home with the David Schlichter team. I worked with Tom Pitzer as my buying agent. Tom was nothing but professional, made all his appointments on time, responded to my questions very promptly, scheduled my inspection for me, and made sure I completely understood and felt comfortable with all the transactions.

At no point did if feel like I was trying to be sold anything. Tom even told me I could get out of the contract if I wanted to too look at other properties.

I'm very happy with my buying experience, my property, and would highly recommend.
" - Scott B.

"David and his team take exceptional care of you throughout the entire process of purchasing a home. I've purchased a home before, and David and Tom's service is absolutely exceptional. They are both incredibly responsive, take the time to explain anything and everything that you're experienced so that you feel very informed as a client, and are incredibly professional from start to end. I really appreciated how quickly my phone calls and emails were answered, and also how calm and personal the entire experience of finding our dream home felt. David and Tom listened very carefully to what we desired in our dream home, and were able to find it- also very quickly! While purchasing a new home can seem incredibly stressful, I felt taken care of in every sense throughout the entire process. I can't recommend or thank them highly enough!" - Ellen D.

"I cannot praise David enough for his assistance to us in our recent home-buying experience. He made the process much smoother than I had anticipated it would be. We were located out of town, making our home search more difficult than usual. David was not only a fantastic resource when looking at properties in person, but he also took the time to do video chat "walk-throughs" with us when we were unable to make it into town. This was incredibly helpful in a market where homes are under contract within a week of listing. In this extremely competitive market, I can assure that David will be an asset to you." - Brittany L.

"We met with David after a friend recommended him, and we immediately knew that he was the guy for us! He came to our first meeting prepared with information he had anticipated we would need as first time homebuyers. He immediately tried to get a feel for what we were looking for.

When looking for homes, David was not just trying to make a quick buck by selling us on something; he took us to see numerous homes, continuing to search for the one that met our needs and budget until we found it! In a very competitive housing market, David advised us on every step of the way to ensure that we became competitive as buyers.

Throughout our entire process, David was very responsive - I could count on him to email or call back immediately. He also took initiative - reaching out to us and our lender to make sure we were all keeping deadlines.

When we were faced with a very frustrating lender delay and a missed closing date, David was our constant advocate, and he did not let up until the bank took action. Throughout it all, he kept in constant contact with us, our lender, and the sellers, to ensure that we didn't lose our contract over the delay.

We know that David has other clients, but we always felt like we were the only ones he was working for! I would absolutely recommend David to anyone looking for a home in the Denver area!
" - Michelle N.

"David made my first home purchase such a wonderful experience. He was always upbeat and positive, and extremely knowledgeable about the process and houses on the market. Before we began looking, he took the time to sit down with me and go through the process, get a feel for what I was looking for, and helped me tailor my search.

Throughout the process, I continued to ask him countless questions, email him daily, and yet he always responded quickly and set up appointments for the same day. At the every end, when there were some issues that arose with an appraisal company, David went above and beyond to not only remedy the situation, but also keep me calm and informed of every update.

David is trustworthy, reliable, and a pleasure to work with. I cannot speak highly enough of him - I recommend him to ANYONE looking to buy a home in the Denver area.
" - Sara G.

"David is the best. No really, the best.

I was a first time homebuyer, had about a million questions about everything and well, let's all just be honest, I'm sure I wasn't the easiest client in the world (I really do think that five texts in a row is appropriate sometimes, regardless of what anyone else thinks).

He explained everything with confidence, grace, and patience - I knew that he wouldn't offer me a suggestion or recommendation without being willing to make the same decision himself. And in my opinion, that's how you really know you can trust someone.

I honestly don't know why you would use any other realtor in Denver. You found the right one right here.
" - Rachel V.

"David is a wonderful real estate agent with the patients of a saint. He makes you feel like his only client. He's wonderful with children and our girls adore him. He's extremely personable and makes a stressful situation more bearable." - Amy G.

"In determining where to undertake a huge investment like a home, you need a realtor and an advocate. David makes sure to have your interests at heart, and also gives you honest feedback about properties. We had an exhaustive list of things we needed, and could be pretty high maintenance, but David was always extremely helpful and accommodating.

You have a great advocate in him, and someone who knows the market in and out. He is supportive, gets you all the information you need, makes himself available, and gives you his opinion when you need another set of eyes.

He is also quick to respond to all emails and calls, which is extremely appreciated when going through such an intensive and time consuming process!

Very, very happy we found him to work with!
" - Jo T.

"Embarking on our first home purchase, my wife and I really wanted an agent who would take the time to fully explain the process and walk us through our options. David was that agent and more. Not only was David incredibly well-versed in the Denver-metro real estate market, he gave us benefits and drawbacks of each individual home we viewed (and we viewed about 15 homes).

Moreover, I doubt you'll find a more responsive agent. When we'd come across a place we wanted to see, David would often have the viewing scheduled in a matter of hours (sometimes, within the hour). He was always responsive to our questions and concerns, and he truly advocated on our behalf with the seller's agent. In the end, we were able to buy our dream home (at a price below asking).

David is a consummate professional, and I'll be recommending him to family and friends looking to buy/ sell!
" - Dennis S.
