“Courtney provided superior knowledge, expertise, and zeal throughout all stages of the research, listing, staging, and negotiation of our sale. She gave just the right amount of advice and guidance to help us create an appropriate listing with an appropriate price, and negotiated the multiple offers to help us select the best contract for our home. I fully believe that it was because of Courtney’s abilities that our house was sold within a month and a half of listing.”
Cullen Choi

“I loved, loved, loved working with Courtney. She took care of every detail while I was living in Montana. I recommend Courtney, without reservation and plan on using her to help me find my next Downtown Denver condo.”
Kitty Clemens

“Courtney provided an accurate market analysis and an informative packet from the beginning which we referred to throughout the process. We had an offer in 3 days! Well done! She was right on the mark in her suggested selling price and negotiations. She was also always available, returned calls and e-mails and promptly addressed every concern and question.”
Sheri Richards

“I’m just calling to tell you…” was a phrase I heard often from Courtney throughout the selling of our home. Her great communication and professionalism in handling all the last minute details and problems made the selling process go as smoothly as possible and greatly decreased my stress as a seller. Courtney is a hard worker, personable, experienced, knows the market, and loves Colorado…what more could you want?”
Ben Flanagan

“I had the good fortune to meet Courtney several years ago and benefit from professionalism and expertise when she acted as my personal real estate agent. My experience with her personally allows me to recommend her personally and professionally with full confidence. Courtney is the consummate professional whose varied background (including public relations and firefighting) has resulted in making her a multi-dimensional agent that is an asset during every step in the home buying process. I am consistently impressed at her expertise in the Denver market and at the tireless effort she puts into each and every client, regardless of the price point. From a lenders perspective, she is so organized and prepared that working with her is a seamless, relaxed process that makes us both look good! In short, she is an organized, knowledgeable, dedicated and loyal professional who will go the extra mile to get the job done. I will continue to recommend her to my friends, family and anyone else who is looking for an agent, advocate and partner in the home buying process.”
Jocelyn Javernick

“We had avoided selling for years because it overwhelmed us but Courtney and PorchLight made it so seamless and easy that we actually enjoyed the process! I feel like we have a new friend in Courtney- forever! She is professional, extremely knowledgable and listened to everything we said and asked for…just wonderful!”
Megan and Chad Fowler

“Courtney has been a true real estate professional. She spent a full day from 9am to 4:30 pm with me. I flew into Denver and she picked me up at the airport and dropped me off in the evening at the hotel. We found a home that visit for our daughter. She always provided information on a timely basis, provided consistent phone calls and updates and assisted us from across the country with our inspection and closing process. I would highly recommend her. She was amazing and this was probably the easiest closing we have ever had. ”
Margaret Meyer Cuno

“Every property I’ve sold in Colorado has been with Courtney. She is wonderful and effective – a great combination. Living out of state did not effect the selling of my condo – she is great at communicating all the key aspects of the process. ”
Ben Flanagan

“The best of the best. Always unbiased, extremely informative, responsive and available. She anticipates all barriers and helps you plan for the next steps. She is very involved in the entire process. We could not have done this without her.”
Lindsey McMenimen

“Courtney was recommended through a mutual friend; however, the friend lives in Denver and I live in South Carolina. My wife I were looking to buy a condo for our daughter who is in graduate school. Courtney provided ample information, emailed us multiple condos to review, and set up a series of appointments. I flew to Denver, she drove me around for a full eight hours and we made an offer the next day. Courtney’s diligence, detailed preparation, and professional follow through made the experience easy and painless. We highly recommend Mrs. Nelson when you are planning to buy or sell a home.”
Doug Meyer Cuno

“Courtney was so informative and knowledgable! We loved that even though we had never purchased a home we didn’t have to be clueless! Anytime I buy or sell I’ll be calling Courtney. Thanks for helping us find our first home!”
Elissa Ellinghouse

“Courtney is a great communicator who helped make our move to Colorado from NC as easy as humanly possible. We were not the easiest clients – switching things at the last minute with a big area to search and she was patient and kind and just great to work with from start to finish! She is a kind person which is also nice – thank you Courtney!”
Heather McTammany

“Over and above. Simply stated Courtney has the market knowledge and professional skill set to make buying and/or selling a home the best experience possible. We worked with her to buy and sell the same home within a 2 year period when the Denver real estate market was doing very different things. Each time she guided us through the maze and helped us make smart decisions that netted us the results we were looking for. She is an absolute pleasure to work with.”
Benjamin Grider

“This is the third home we have sold through Courtney. She has always been responsive, communicative, informative, and listens well. We sold our last home with Courtney in one day at full market price and we were able to rent back as we were not prepared to move so quick. This occurred because of Courtney’s knowledge of the market and her professionalism. ”
Bob and Linda Arquilla

“We have previously sold a home with Courtney, and this is our first purchase, again exceptional service. Courtney displayed great patience as we were very picky during a very captive market. Courtney is an incredibly well rounded professional.”
Chris and Mary Boumeester

“Courtney is an amazing real estate agent. We are relocating from California and needed to house hunt on various weekends and with last minute availability, sometimes my wife and I flew in to Denver separately and she had to take the other to the same houses. We were all over the map in terms of location and type of home and Courtney guided us through a very difficult decision. We absolutely love our new home, and it checks about every box we wanted. Courtney helped us before, during and after the closing process and was with us every step of the way. This is our sixth home purchase in 30 years and by far the best experience we have had. We were so pleased with Courtney that we asked her to help our close friends who are in escrow now.”
Dave Van Name

Courtney is the most efficient and dependable agent we have ever had. Our situation was a little different with selling an estate. Courtney went above and beyond in making sure every detail was attended to promptly. Courtney is awesome and we will highly recommend her to anyone looking to buy or sell their home.”

Aljean Tucker

“Selling a home is stressful and there are so many brokers, it’s important to choose someone who can listen, take ownership and execute on a plan. I recently sold a home with Courtney and found her to be a professional from the initial meeting, all the way through closing. From readying the home, properly valuing, staging and keeping us readily updated, she hit the mark. I found her to be personable, knowledgable and responsive. If you’re looking to buy or sell, I would definitely recommend Courtney.”
Ken Smith

“Courtney was the most thorough, attentive, knowledgeable, and friendly agent with whom we have ever worked.”

Sherry and Steve Benton

“Courtney made an overall stressful experience selling our first home absolutely delightful. We appreciated her team’s expertise in making our home shine to get the best buyers in. She stood by our choices – never pressured us and was always available for any questions and to address our concerns. I don’t think we would have been so successful in 34 days without her! Courtney provided such an amazing service and we loved her personal flower touches. Thanks so much!”

Rachael Shelly

“I couldn’t have been more pleased with my experience working with Courtney! She is so very professional, extremely smart with a thorough knowledge of Denver Real Estate. The icing on top was finding Courtney to be wonderfully warm and classy!”

Lynn Shanelec

“I highly recommend Courtney! As first-time homeowners, my husband and I had a lot of questions during the whole process. Courtney was very knowledgeable as well as patient and thorough when explaining things to us. She was very understanding with our schedule (last minute changes for seeing a house due to work-related changes in schedule). What we loved best is that she was never pushy and truly wanted us to find a home that would fit us. I thought my husband was being too unreasonable with all his things he wanted (certain acreage within half hour of his work for under a certain price) — and though it took us a a little while for all that, Courtney helped us find a beautiful place in Conifer that we absolutely love and met all our ‘wants’ in addition to our needs. She is the one who encouraged us to look in this area and we couldn’t be happier with our first home and neighborhood. Thank you, Courtney!!”

Danelle Herra

“Courtney has helped me with 4 real estate transactions and continues to be the best agent. She always makes sure I have all the information to make decisions, communicated effectively and efficiently and most importantly I always feel like she has my best interest in mind. She also knows everybody in the business and helped with referrals for repairs, which was priceless. Thanks Courtney!”

Kat Chairez

“Courtney is simply amazing. She always goes above and beyond for her clients and there is no other agent we would have rather worked with! We love Courtney.”

Brittney Moser

“We have completed 6 real estate transactions in Colorado in the last 10 years, between buying 4 homes and selling 2, and this by far the smoothest and most transparent experience we’ve had. Courtney was extremely accommodating to our accelerated home- searching schedule. Her honesty, transparency and candid opinions were truly priceless and something we haven’t been able to find in realtors we’ve used in previous transactions. We have and will continue to refer anyone we know looking to buy or sell a house to Courtney. She is the best.”

Jamie Beck

“Courtney is so professional, responsive and thorough! When we listed our home her advice and suggestions were always top noted. She kept us in the loop every step of the way and provided feedback. She also helped us with our home purchase. Her suggestions and opinions about neighborhoods, styles and conditions of houses we considered was helpful. We are completely delighted with our choice of a new home and grateful for her help at every step of the process.”

Renee Rodrigue

“Courtney is fantastic to work with!!! We have worked with her on both sides as buyers/ sellers now. She found us the perfect spot that fit our individual needs when my wife and I purchased our first home as newly-weds four years ago. Very professional and great attention to detail from start to finish, her acumen is far above the average agent. While working with her most recently, we were doing a lot of traveling and she still made the sales process of our home as easy as clicking a few buttons on the phone. She went above and beyond making sure that we were best prepared for our first day on the market and maintained a constant flow of communication through our journey together. Courtney has overdelivered every time and we will continue to use her expertise navigating these markets!”

Kyle Day

“I have used many realtors in the past, but have struggled to find one that takes the stress out of the challenging process of buying/selling a home. Then I met Courtney Nelson! She was referred to me by a mutual friend when I decided to sell my place and buy another. Courtney managed the logistical frenzy that comes with this process with empathy and professionalism that exceeded my expectations. I never had to worry about what was coming next or what I needed to do. She has a professional team behind her that takes care of virtually every aspect of this process. Courtney took the time to get to know me, understand my wants and concerns, and help me find the perfect home that I was looking for!! It can be challenging finding a professional that we’re comfortable referring to the people closest to us. I can say, with absolute confidence, that I am comfortable referring Courtney to not only those closest to me, but to anyone who is looking to buy and/or sell a home. I would be happy to speak with anyone who would like to hear more about Courtney!”

Jeff Wren

“Courtney was wonderful as she helped us with the purchase of our forever home!! From start to finish, she was highly professional, communicative, encouraging and extremely knowledgeable! She listened to what we wanted and knew exactly which homes to show us. When we found the home we loved, she was amazing as she successfully negotiated the sale in a very competitive market, the home receiving multiple offers. We are thrilled with our new home purchase and thankful Courtney was there for us. We highly recommend Courtney to anyone looking for their perfect home!!”

James Dingivan

“Having worked with Courtney before, we knew she would be extremely professional, an expert in real estate, a great communicator and a delight to work with. And we were not disappointed! We would not work with any other realtor in Colorado.”

The Ryans

“Courtney was always professional, yet friendly and personable. She supplied me with sales materials and forms and always double checked me to make sure I had a good understanding of things.”

Donna Lee

“I recently re-located to Denver and Courtney was recommended by family and friends. After one day of looking at properties, Courtney immediately picked up on my needs and type of home desired. She honed in on locations and was so helpful in introducing me to desirable homes in areas that were perfect for me.
We found the perfect fit and location and Courtney was there for every step. I highly recommend using Courtney for your next move!!”

Linda Pinson

“I highly recommend Courtney as an extremely capable and caring Real Estate Broker. She is always well prepared, timely and her communications to us throughout the searching, negotiating, buying and closing processes were truly exceptional. We have worked with other brokers previously and Courtney is among the very best. Courtney did great research on market pricing, competitive offers as well as homes to preview. You will be working with a truly top broker in Courtney.”
Wayne Grider

“Courtney was the consummate professional. Provided insights to situations I was not acquainted with. She assured that tasks would be done at a certain time and they were. A great resource for a prospective buyer or seller of real estate.”
Mark Fitzharris

“After talking about and dreaming about moving to Oregon from what seems like forever, we are finally taking the last step to make this dream come true – closing on our Golden home. Our thanks to you is deep and heartfelt. You have made the entire experience of selling our house smooth, positive, and achievable. We have appreciated your calm demeanor and optimistic attitude, your thoroughness, and your ability to be highly professional with a personal touch. Thank you!”
Lisa And Bill Roberts

“We are first time home buyers who had the pleasure of working with Courtney. From her patience with us throughout our seemingly never-ending search, to our communication challenges last minute with the mortgage company, Courtney fought for us and communicated with us as if we were her only customers. We felt so comfortable with Courtney’s knowledge and expertise that we utilized her help in virtually every step of the process. Part of Courtney’s success with us is her genuine caring nature for her customers. We felt she went above and beyond to get to know us, our interests and our needs, which meant she provided us with home ideas that matched our true interests.”
Tara Butler

“Courtney is a genuine and professional real estate broker. She communicates effectively to clients and other brokers, which decreases the stress associated with a home sale or purchase. She has built relationships that aid in her and her clients success, and she continually goes above and beyond expectations with her ability, her kindness, and the time she spends brokering deals. With Courtney and PorchLight Real Estate, you will get personalized attention fueled with genuine care for your situation and needs. We needed to sell our house quickly to move to a new state and pursue a dream while maintaining our home life with our small children and Courtney made selling our house the least stressful part of the change! I would recommend her to anyone buying or selling. She is truly one of a kind.”
Ramie Hencmann

Chris and Elizabeth Foster

Melissa Helms

“Courtney delivered above and beyond helping us buy a house and then years later, sell that house. One of the things that impressed me the most was her timely response – working all hours to make sure details were taken care of and that we were in the best position possible. I can’t recommend her highly enough.”
Katheryn Grider

“My family and I feel fortunate to have Courtney as our real estate agent. Her unparalleled customer service takes the home buying experience to a new level. She invested a substantial amount of time locating properties that met very specific needs for our family. She is a great negotiator and communicator and takes charge of communications for all parties involved. Her service and follow up during and after our closing exemplified the highest level of expertise and commitment to her clients. In the future when it comes time to buy or sell again, we will not think twice about who are agent is going to be. We definitely recommend Courtney to anyone in need of an exceptional real estate professional. We can’t thank Courtney enough for making our real estate transaction a top-notch experience and success.”

“Knowledgeable, kind, professional, sterling reputation, attention to detail…these are just a few of the words that describe working with Courtney. She makes a real estate transaction look and feel easy and stress free. She is calm through every step of the transaction and her level of customer service is incomparable. You will be so glad you chose her for your real estate broker. She is quite simply the VERY BEST!”
Lisa Botarelli

“Courtney is amazing! We were first time homebuyers when we came to her and are now looking to sell the house and buy with her again. She is kind and easy to work with, and she doesn’t end contact as soon as she gets the deal. She’s knowledgable, patient and very good at working within any budget. She’s great at walking first-time homebuyers through every part of the process, and if she isn’t sure about something she always knows someone who can help! She is understanding and never pushy, we couldn’t ask for anything more! We are so glad we were able to work with her and will be working with her in the future. I couldn’t recommend Courtney enough!”
Ellie Rae Matthai

“Selling your house can be very nerve wrecking. But knowing and trusting that Courtney had everything under contract was very reassuring. She went above and beyond to help us keep the house under contract when some roadblocks occurred with selling our house.We will continue to use Courtney for all of our real estate needs!”
Aaron Schuetz

The great thing about that, YOU as a buyer can get some shut eye at night knowing that you are in great hands and that you are getting all of the bases covered without fear or anxiety! Courtney is the best in the business. Trust her with your home buying OR selling experience!”
Kari Jeske Palmer

“We have never worked with anyone as professional helpful and thorough as Courtney. She stayed in touch with us constantly throughout the entire process, explained everything and took care of so many details for us. Thank you Courtney for an amazing experience !”
Peggy and Dan Orraj

“I can’t say enough about Courtney. Over the past few months, she’s guided us through an extremely difficult and complicated home purchase. Without her patience and market knowledge, I sincerely doubt we would be in our new home at this time! She’s gone above and beyond what I would expect from a realtor; staying involved in the process long after close to ensure all remaining home items were resolved. Speaking of patience, she was kind enough to devote a good portion of her weekends to us for several months as we looked at no fewer than 50 homes… she wanted to ensure that we got it right! I feel extremely fortunate that we were able to work with Courtney, I would happily recommend her to anyone looking to buy in the Denver market. Thank you Courtney for all you’ve done and for your friendship!”
Zack Saban

“Our experience seemed rather quick from start to finish. Once we contacted her & gave our parameters for what we were looking for we had several listings to look through. Once we found a house we wanted to purchase, the process seemed very streamlined & efficient. She is a complete gem to work with and was so caring and kind with our family. “

Everett and Robin Brower

“I’ve worked with Courtney on a number of occasions and have always found her to be extremely knowledgeable, thorough, timely, organized and a delight to work with. She makes what can be a stressful + challenging process of buying a home easy + enjoyable. I highly recommend her to anyone looking to buy or sell a home.”

Melissa Helms

“Courtney listened to my inputs, and helped refine my requirements while providing guidance on the home buying process. Courtney communicated clearly, and helped me feel confident in buying my first home.”

Gerad Weber

“I Love Courtney. From the first phone call, to the last letter I received from her (this week), she was far and away the best! She had an instinct for what I needed every step of the way. I had done so much to get the house ready it was a mess, I was tired and worried that I couldn’t do it. This was a unique 1700 sq ft, A-frame that would take a unique buyer. Courtney always had the right answer. She assisted me with window cleaners, staging, photography and house cleaning. Now my house felt empty, no family pics and such around, I got anxious. Courtney was working so hard for me! I had almost 50 showings in less than 7 weeks and I was loosing help of selling it. I knew it was unique. Courtney always stayed positive, even though I turned down a couple of low offers. Then all of a sudden, it sold for a good price. Through all of this, Courtney even cheerfully helped me look for land, which required a lot of driving, (and picnics). Now I am in a place I am really enjoying. I love Courtney, she is smart, loving, fun and simply the most outstanding realtor ever.”

Wendy Holland

“I would never use anyone else. Working with Courtney is fantastic. She helped us find a home even in this crazy market. We could not be happier.”

Dustin Pointon

“Courtney was great! Very knowledgeable of the area. She was pleasant to work with. Has extensive knowledge of mountain living. I can’t say enough good things about her! We feel lucky to have had her as our realtor!”

Kym Lillie

“Working with Courtney was an absolute delight. Her professionalism, knowledge, patience, persistence and warmth made our selling experience easy and straight forward.”

Tracy Doherty

“Courtney is the BEST! After 3 home buying experiences with her we would NEVER buy a house without Courtney. Beyond happy to work with her”

Elissa Muller

“Having worked with Courtney as both buyers and sellers, we’ve been able the experience the full extent of Courtney’s professionalism, knowledge of the Denver market, and comprehensive toolkit of best-in-class resources that work in concert to ensure your real estate transactions are as simple and painless as possible. As buyers, Courtney helped us understand red flag items to look out for in different locations around the Denver metro area and was able to bring in an engineer before we placed an offer to alleviate our concerns around a mark in the foundation of the home we eventually bought. She walked us through the buying process, recommended an excellent home inspector and radon remediator, and ensured that our investment was well placed in the home we ended up purchasing. Fast forward a few years and we needed to sell, quickly, to return to the east coast to help with aging parents. Courtney helped us expedite getting our home ready to go on the market and ensured it presented its absolute best before listing with home staging, window washing, and professional photography services. Following Courtney’s advice, we were able to land an offer well north of what we were expecting our property to be worth. She smoothly coordinated all the details, appointments, and steps necessary to get us to closing in 3 weeks. We cannot overstate our recommendation to use Courtney to anyone looking to buy or sell in the Denver area. She genuinely cares about her clients and does everything possible to deliver over the top results.”

Nicole Hite

“While finding my perfect home was a dream come true, I almost didn’t want my search to end because I would miss my time spent working with Courtney! From our first meet and greet to our closing, Courtney went above and beyond providing support as my husband and I searched for and purchased our first home. Not to mention it was helpful working with a Colorado native as my my husband and I are from New York and were only in Colorado a few months before starting our home search. The entire process was seamless and almost stress-free (because in no way will buying a home ever be stress free!). We never once felt any pressure from Courtney and she always shared her honest opinion which we truly appreciated. She is reliable and takes action quickly, which you need to do in today’s crazy market. I would highly recommend Courtney to anyone out there in search of a home in the Greater Denver area!”

Elizabeth Natale

“She is so helpful. We felt very comfortable with her especially because she lives in the area we were wanting to live. We trusted her completely and appreciate her expertise.”

Jeff and Susan Wilson

“We were very please with our experience. This was a tough market to buy in and we appreciated Courtney’s calm temperment mixed with her go-getter work ethic.”

The Sawyers

Courtney embodies all the traits one can wish for when seeking out a Real Estate Broker, whether it be on the buyer or seller side. Courtney is extremely knowledgeable within the Colorado market, trustworthy, patient, engaged, responsive, communicates clearly, and most importantly, she has a great team supporting her ensuring all aspects of the process are well managed and that I was well prepared for all activities throughout buying/selling whether my responsibility or her teams.

If you’re looking for someone to make your home buying/selling experience seamless, Courtney should be on your list!”
