What our clients are saying  

The first time my wife and I worked with Trisha was in finding and buying a home in Conifer. The second time was selling that previous home in Conifer to buy a new home in Larkspur. I really appreciated working with her the second time b/c closing on the house in Larkspur was contingent to selling the Conifer house. This special situation was stressful, but Trisha and her team was extremely helpful throughout the entire process. Because of this, we were able to sell the Conifer house and close on the Larkspur house all within a month. She's definitely knowledgeable with real estate

I recommend Trisha Karstetter Grose 100% to be your home buying agent! My fiance & I visited Jefferson County from Florida for exactly 1 week with 1 goal in mind - to make an offer on a house! Via email we explained what we were looking for; she put together a binder of the homes organized by day & area of where the homes were located. We saw 72 homes before choosing THE one. She was so adventurous, kind & reassuring; she made buying a new home FUN. Thank you Trisha!

 

~ Greg & Karen of Evergreen

I would recommend Trisha Karstetter Grose. I find Trisha to be hard working, tenacious and that she genuinely cares about her clients. This is not just a job for her it is her passion, she is excited to go to work every day and works for her clients with great enthusiasm. I would work with Trisha again for buying or selling a home.

 

~ Lynda in Golden

Trisha provided excellent service. We went out with numerous real estate agents but Trisha was our favorite. She was always honest and had our family in her best interest. A family type atmosphere in the office. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND!!!!!!!

 

~ Kevin, Mindy & Marley

We had a fantastic experience with Trisha! She really went above and beyond with every aspect of our home buying experience. She is warm, responsive, well connected, and very organized. She developed a great relationship with the selling agent and facilitated a flawless transaction. She also has extensive knowledge of Indian Hills and the surrounding area. Even after we closed on our new home she continued to connect us with a variety of local services! We would highly recommend her and we look forward to being her neighbors!

 

~ Shannon & Michael

Trisha was a true professional, yet with a great personal touch. She was always available day or night to answer our many questions. I would highly recommend her.

 

~ Lisa & Jeff

Trisha helped me purchase and sell several properties - including investment properties and horse properties. Trisha is professional, courteous, and a wonderful negotiator! I highly recommend her!

 

~ Scott

Trisha made the home buying and selling process so easy and was quick to answer all of our questions. Trisha also sold our house fast and at a record high price point for our model in our immediate area. I highly recommend Trisha Karstetter for your next real estate transaction!!

 

~ Taylor & Matt

First used Trisha to buy a home in Indian Hills. She was able to help us sort out the good, the bad and the ugly....which is not an easy feat in the mountains! One day, she must have showed us six different properties. Quite a few were ones we had found and she immediately contacted agents so we could see them. We did find the perfect cabin! I then contacted Trisha months later to help with selling my condo. She was extremely responsive and was able to attain a contractor to do some re-modeling/updating. First offer actually came in before it was on the market. Unfortunately, it wasn't the right offer, but with Trisha's skills, the condo sold within six weeks of actually being on the market. Trisha has a knack of making you feel like you are her only client. Which helps someone like me that was pretty naïve about the real estate market. Thanks Trisha!!! You ROCK!

 

~ Christy

Trisha was always available day/night 7 days a week to help us with any questions or concerns we had. She sold our condominium in 1 day. We also used her to purchase our new home - which went very smoothly. Excellent realtor. Highly recommend using her. Thank you Trisha for everything

 

~ Jane & Paul

Trisha Grose was not only extremely knowledgeable, she was very east to talk to, patient, and was very helpful with every aspect of buying our home. She helped us figure out what kind of loan would be best for situation, and let us know how increase the homes value once we purchased it. I highly recommended her, I even did to my own parents which will be purchasing a home through her in the near future.

 

~ Annie & Jared

Trisha helped me through the process of getting the house ready to sell and all of her recommendations seemed to result in several offers as soon as the house was listed. Being able to sign all the listing contracts and just email them back without going into the office was very helpful. Absolutely the best Realtor I've ever dealt with!!
