Quality Is Not An Act, It’s a Habit
We (Heather and Lane) have built our lives around our business and those who’ve worked with us know that Dwell Denver is more than just another real estate agency. We’ve built it to be an extension of who we are with our core values spackled into the foundation of everything we do.
We stand for excellence, we embody compassion, and we’re fun as hell, dammit.
Our clients think so too – here’s what they’ve said about us…
Heather Pikas and Lane Walsh were amazing to work with. I have a very difficult travel schedule and was on a tight timeline and very picky about the neighborhood I wanted to be in. Heather figured out what I liked after one time out and found me several different options including my dream home! She was also extremely patient with my work schedule and was so helpful during the inspection and closing process. I am so happy… and highly recommend them to anyone looking for a home!
Heather Pikas was my agent and helped my husband and I find the perfect condo in 1 week for $3K under ask in a crazy market that is usually goes for over ask! She has great follow up and most importantly was very flexible and knowledgeable. I asked her to look at homes at about midnight and the next day she had 4 listings ready for us to visit with printouts and that’s when we found “the one”. Had she not accommodated me last minute, we may not have gotten the place we love so much! I definitely recommend her!
We received outstanding service and appreciated Lane’s expertise. I would recommend her to anyone looking for a trusting real estate agent with a great understanding of the market and refreshing style.
Heather is absolutely wonderful to work with! Buying a home can be an intimidating process. She was able to help us understand how the buying process works, and helped us to navigate through it. Thanks to her expertise, and willingness to share that with her clients, we felt far more comfortable in the buying process.
Heather is the best! She had an excellent strategy going in to the sale of our home which led to multiple, very competitive offers. She was also a great, responsive communicator and walked us through every step of the process. We couldn’t have been happier with the outcome and will recommend Heather to all of our Denver family and friends.
Dwell offers great services: staging was a breeze (while we lived there during showings), cleaning prior to house on the market, great marketing materials, and invaluable assistance from Lane and Heather at all hours of the day.
Absolutely loved working with Heather Pikas! Heather is an absolutely amazing real estate agent, who is very knowledgeable about Denver’s housing market. She has a phenomenal attitude with great energy and excitement for real estate and for life. Plus, always there to greet you with a smile!
Lane, thanks for making our home buying process fun and trouble free. We really appreciate your energy and dedication to answering all of our questions. We look forward to working with you in the future!
Lane was great to work with. She was so very patient with us as first-time homebuyers. And in the end, it was all worth it – she got us into the house we truly wanted.
Lane did a terrific job helping us sell our house. Her staging advice helped us put the best possible product on the market and we were under contract in three weeks in a difficult market. I’d use her again any time.
Lane is the best – she is tireless, knowledgeable, personable and has an eye for details. She stuck with us through a countless stream of fixer-uppers before gently guiding us to the perfect first home for our new family.
Lane is an extremely competent real estate professional. Through the 1+ year time period we took finding the right home in Golden, Lane was patient, professional, diligent, and knowledgeable…and a delight to work with. Having worked with many agents over the years, including scores while developing real estate in SC, I’d place Lane near the very top of the class and recommend her unconditionally.
My husband and I were first-time home buyers, and frankly petrified to get into the Denver real estate market—we'd heard so many horror stories!
Once we found Heather Pikas, we breathed a sigh of relief. She made the entire process an absolute delight—from hooking us up with awesome lender recommendations to showing us neighborhoods we love and didn't even know existed—and cut out all the unnecessary stress.
We ended up beating out 14 other offers on our dream house (while staying within our budget), thanks to Heather's incredibly wise offer strategies. She has been through it all and knows exactly how to play it. We love our house and hope to live there for years, but we can't wait to work with Heather again. I'm recommending her to everyone I know!
Dwell Denver is incredibly great to work with. My husband and I moved to Denver in August after ten years in New York. We were first-time home buyers, and frankly petrified to get into the Denver real estate market--we'd heard so many horror stories! Once we found Heather Pikas of Dwell, we breathed a sigh of relief. She made the entire process an absolute delight--from hooking us up with awesome lender recommendations to showing us neighborhoods we love and didn't even know existed--and cut out all the unnecessary stress. We ended up beating out 14 other offers on our dream house in Wheat Ridge (while staying within our budget), thanks to Heather's incredibly wise offer strategies. We couldn't be happier in this house, and we heave Heather to thank. She has been through it all and knows exactly how to play it. We love our house and hope to live there for years, but we can't wait to work with Heather again. I'm recommending her to everyone I know, and figured I should chime in on The Internets too. She's truly the greatest!
Heather was a pleasure to work with. My wife and I have worked with Heather through three real estate transactions, and she will be the first call that I make if/when I need a realtor again. I've recommended her to good friends and will continue to do so. At every stage of each process, Heather correctly predicted what would transpire. We've worked with her on both the buyer and seller side, and she was right at every point, from pricing to negotiating, to estimating what the other party was thinking. At every stage, I was amazed at her prowess. On my first transaction with Heather, we were able to win a bidding war with an offer several thousand less than the top. Heather treated the seller's agent and seller with respect, had her paperwork in order and helped us do the same. I credit her with being able to close on the house in this competive market. On my second transaction, Heather found a great price point to sell our home at. The price point generated far more interest than we imagined. Once again, throughout the process, Heather was always in our corner. She patiently explained the process, sometimes at midnight, and sometimes when she was on vacation. At the same time, she treated all involved with respect and professionalism. Because of her, we were able to sell to great buyers for far more than we had hoped. With her track record, it wasn't a question who our realtor for finding our next house was going to be. We had very select criteria. In fact, in this market, I was nervous that we were going to find anything in our price point. Heather reassured us (especially me) that she was not going to rest until she found us our home. Heather came back early from camping trips, took time out of hosting slumber parties and called us from vacation. She went above and beyond, and found us our dream home. Once again, thanks to her advice, we won a bidding war on our fist offer. At this point, we consider Heather a good friend. Her energy, knowledge, professionalism, thorough knowledge of the Denver metro market and her kindness blew us away at every step. I cannot recommend Heather Pikas enough. Thank you Heather, for everything.
I can't say enough good things about Heather. She's knocked the ball out of the park twice for us (regarding house buying) and she's helped us sell one house. For both houses we've bought, they were the first ones we put an offer on. We sold our house for a significant amount more than what we paid for it, mainly due to Heather's strategy and Denver's hot market. She's a wonderful person to work with because she's very passionate about her work, detail oriented, competent, reliable, honest, committed, genuine, flexible, fun, and an excellent communicator. I would highly recommend her to anyone who wants to buy/sell a house, particularly in Denver's hot market. She knows what she's doing and is more than willing to get it done for you!
The Dwell team is a step ahead of any other realtor we've worked with. From multiple touch points throughout the journey making sure we knew exactly what was going on to the distinct and tasteful For Sale sign out front and especially every interaction we had with Heather. These were two very successful interactions and we look forward to a third! Thanks again, Dwell!
Oh my goodness this place is the best. Our realtor from Dwell was absolutely amazing. I have to say I doubted her on occasion but she came through. And more. She was a counselor, a friend, and always had our backs the whole time. I highly recommend Heather and Lane. They know what they are doing. They know what they are doing and are absolutely amazing.
Dwell Denver Real Estate was by far the best real estate agency we've had the opportunity to work with. Heather, our real estate agent, was resourceful, persistent, and enduring throughout the entire selling and buying process. Heather provided a well-thought plan in order to successfully guide us through the buying and selling process. Heather was prepared to address all of our concerns in order to relieve the home buying and selling process. Heather provided insightful home selling tips which led to a smooth experience. I would highly recommend Dwell Denver Real Estate and Heather as your next real estate experts.
Heather is a dream to work with both from the buyers and sellers perspective. She is responsive, knowledgeable, and fun to work with!
Heather Pikas is a Rockstar when it comes to buying and selling. She was referred to me by my financial advisor and I could not have been more impressed with her knowledge, education and professionalism. I have worked with many realtors before, but Heather was the best--she took care of everything and made it happen seamlessly, it appeared. She was always a step ahead and continued until closing and after. I consider Heather a friend now and will recommend her, without question, to all my friends and colleagues.
My wife and I have worked with Lane and Heather on real estate issues for more than 6 years now. They not only sold our house when we moved from Denver to Golden, but they have advised us on various aspects of real estate investments ever since. Professional, knowledgeable, and personable.
I was the trustee for an estate that included a house to be sold - I was unfamiliar with the area where the house was located. Heather did a great job in researching and helping me decide on an appropriate selling price. She also guided me on the repairs that needed to be made and those that could wait. She did a good job of reviewing the offers and selecting the best one. I was pleasantly surprised that the house sold for almost 25% more than I expected.
Heather has been working hard to keep us informed as we get ready to sell our home and downsize in a very competitive market. Although we have yet to list our home, Heather has been a generous and invaluable resource as we approach that decision. She has helped us evaluate our property and has provided us with the information we need to make an informed decision when the time arrives. She'll be the first agent we call on when that time comes.
I enjoyed every second of my collaboration with Heather to list and sell my condo, and later - buy a new home! Heather's work ethic is near-perfect, her knowledge of the industry and area is extraordinary, and being in her presence (with her trademark positive/superb attitude) is a complete privilege. I recommend Heather and her Dwell Real Estate business partners with the highest confidence - and I guarantee that you'll receive a six-star experience.
Our home-owning experience in Denver lasted a little over two years, and Heather was with us the whole time! During the home-buying process, Heather was very attentive to what my wife and I were looking for in a home (which at times diverged), and very thoughtful in the homes she showed us. During negotiations and the path to closing, Heather kept us informed, and we always felt like we were getting the best out there for our family.
Selling our home was a more anxious time for me. We were selling what might be the most valuable asset we'll ever own! I wasn't always on board with Heather's recommendations at first, so I asked a lot of questions. Heather's thorough explanations always got me on board with her plan. And I'm sure glad I listened to her! In addition to recommendations on price, timing, etc., Heather provided detailed directions on cleaning, packing, and staging. We did our best to listen to everything she said, and it paid off. She got us significantly more than asking price, and more than I thought we would when we started the process.
In addition to being a savvy businessperson, Heather is simply a great person. She kept up with our family happenings, and we always knew she cared. Thanks so much, Heather!
My husband and I worked with Heather to buy and later sell our first home. Heather was fantastic! She is very knowledgeable and really helped us understand both processes. She was attentive to all our questions and concerns. We were able to sell our home very quickly thanks to her guidance. We are very grateful for all her help!!
We bought our house in 2007 with great guidance and assistance from Lane Walsh. She put together a comprehensive list of houses within our budget and desired area. We traveled our area of interest (even in difficult weather conditions) and found exactly what we had hoped to find. In fact, Lane was very helpful in helping us find the kind of house our family could grow in together through the years. This vision of the future was from Lane’s understanding more than just about numbers of bedrooms and bathrooms but what were really valued in a home. She was also great at negotiating solid contract terms and getting a better than fair market value for the house be bought. She even made sure the original owners left us their brand new clothes washer and dryer!
We were referred to Lane in 2008 when my wife and I moved to Denver from New York. Not only was Lane a pleasure to work with, she helped us find an absolutely fantastic home in West Wash Park. Coming from Manhattan, we wanted to find a home that was within walking distance to all of life’s modern necessities: public transport, beautiful park, Whole Foods, and a wine shop. Lane delivered, and today we are less than a 10 minute walk to all of those things. Also, as first time home buyers, Lane’s dedication, knowledge, and (most of all) patience calmed our anxiety throughout the process and made us feel comfortable and confident when it came time to make our final decision. We could not be more enthusiastic about recommending Lane if you’re searching for your perfect home!
Last summer we sold our 3bd/3ba home in the Lower Highlands. Our experience working with Lane was outstanding. We asked Lane to represent us in the sale of our home because of her comprehensive and personal knowledge of our neighborhood. We were greatly impressed by her understanding of the buyers who were seeking our community. Lane offered us a specific and accurate picture of the real estate market, from asking price and sale price to time on the market. We felt the process was managed professionally and with our interests in mind. Lane is a true pleasure to work with. She made the process as easy as possible. We will undoubtedly be seeking Lane’s services in our next real estate transaction. We eagerly recommend her to all of our friends.
