Bought a Single Family home in 2014 in Commerce City, CO.

Venus is honest and trustworthy. She genuinely cares about getting her clients a home-not just a house. Her entire team is excellent and makes you, as a buyer, feel valued and worthy.

Bought a home in 2014.
Primary point of contact: Tish Parker Fruge

Venus Howard's team was amazing. Very caring and thoughtful. They were there for me every step of the way. I worked directly with Tish Parker-Fruge and I couldn't be happier. She was great. I know I would not have been able to find "my perfect home" without her help. She was great at explaining every step of the process which helped me to make informed decisions. They made the process of buying a home easy and stress-free. I highly recommend Venus Howard's team.

Bought a home in 2014.

My husband and I just purchased our first home with the help of Steve and Venus. It was a very easy and enjoyable process and we could not be happier. Steve and Venus were very professional and responsive to all our first time jitters (and there were many) I would recommend them to anyone looking to purchase a new home.

Sold a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $300K in Commerce City, CO.

I was the type of seller who was considering using a discount broker, or FSBO, and after hiring Venus, I'm so glad I didn't go that route. She did an outstanding job from all angles, and was well worth every cent. We liked her so much that we used her as our buying agent (in a different CO market) as well.

Highlights of her work with us:

As Selling Agent:

- Great analysis of local market and comps

- Spot on listing price

- Great online marketing and social media coverage

- iOS/Android app for showing scheduling

- Quick sale - We got an above asking price offer after 1 week of showings.

- Fast, easy online contracts

As Buying Agent:

- Identification of great property that we hadn't seen online. We bought the first house she took us to.

- Hassle free offer acceptance based on her price recommendation

- Fast, easy online contracts

- Great negotiating skills

Overall, Venus exceeded all expectations, and provided personal, concierge like service throughout the entire process. It's clear that she is extremely passionate about what she does and strives for excellence. Highly recommended!

Sold a home in 2014.

Venus and Steve were incredible. They sold our house in 1 day and took us to look at all the houses we wanted to see on our schedule. They were extremely knowledgeable and knew exactly what we wanted.

Bought a Townhouse home in 2014 for approximately $175K in Westminster, CO.

Venus, along with her colleague Steve found my dream home on the second day of looking at homes. I almost made an offer on the last house I looked at on the first outing, though I had a few misgivings. Then I found an email waiting with a new listing that instantly caught my attention. I met Venus at what is now my home. The entire process of purchasing a new home is a stressful undertaking, but Venus made it so much easier than it would otherwise have been. She was always extremely courteous, patient, yet prompt; and though things moved along at a rapid pace, I never once felt rushed or pressured to furnish the needed documentation or other information. She gives evidence of experience and pride in her work in the way she prompted me to look for things I should expect in a new home, that I otherwise would have overlooked. She is a true professional.

Sold a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $275K in Commerce City, CO.

I can not say enough about Venus! She went above and beyond for my wife and I. We had to move out of state and list our house at the same time. She coordinated everything for us and kept us in the loop the entire time. She handled all of the appraisal and inspection issues, contacted plumbers and electricians, and insured all issues were fixed prior to closing. We even had a water heater go out while we were gone and she took care of everything for us...even paid for it herself out of pocket and reimbursed herself at closing so we didn't have to deal with it while being so far away. Venus is extremely knowledgeable about the real estate market, laws, processes and quick and efficient with electronic documentation. As someone who used to flip houses and has been through many realtors and closings, this was by far the best experience I have ever had!

Sold a home in 2014.

Wow.. Where can I start? Venus assisted my fiance and I from the very beginning of a very challenging, and difficult process. Venus was our guide, and always the resource we would go to with our (million and one) questions. Venus never batted an eye at all the work involved, nor any of the questions or issues which arose. She is without a doubt, one of the most professional and competent people I have ever dealt with in ANY occupation. Venus puts other realtors to shame, as was evidenced more than once during this whole process. I would almost feel sorry for other parties waiting for their agent(s) to get the job done. We were always at least one step ahead of the game. I would highly recommend Venus for any real estate needs.

Sold a home in 2014.

Venus Howard is simply outstanding! Her personal care and professional approach as a realtor is highly commendable. Within hours of placing my house on the market Venus had a list of potential buyers. I was on a fast track to sale the house and Venus delivered! I am so impressed with her work that I will seek her services for my future real estate needs.
