Over the years I've dealt with many realtors on the buy side and sell side. Most of those experiences have left me questioning the value of the broker. I can honestly say Derek Rinetti was the first realtor I've ever dealt with that changed that perception. Derek is a professional, he is prepared, he is responsive, he understands the market, he provides advice and guidance. He takes market data and provides you a complete analysis of your buying and/or selling situation. Bottom line, Derek brings the most professional approach to real estate that I've ever seen, and I would highly recommend him to anyone.
Derek helped us sell our home quickly (1 week after listing) for a great price. His advice regarding remodel items was spot on and he was a great source for the other contacts we needed during the process.
What a pleasure it has been to have a true professional like Derek to assist in the pursuit to find our future home. He has been available to us at all times, and has made certain to keep us informed throughout all areas of the transaction. Thank you Derek for a great job done!
Over the years I have had many moves, bought and sold multiple homes, and several involved out of state transactions. Recently I was in a situation where downsizing, and looking to purchase a townhome. I had several restrictions, such as basement, storage, area for a dog, and Derek helped fiond the perfect home! And, that was just the beginning. He was there every step of the way with recommendations, research, advising, and scheduling so many of the appointments for me. His attention to detail was such a relief, as in the past, it has seemed to fall on me. His availability was 24/7, and I was never made to feel that I was bothering hm. As you have probably figured by now, I highly recommend Derek Rinatti!
He also assisted my sister in the sale of their home, and in finding their new home, and she was equally pleased. Thanks you, Derek!!!
Derek did a tremendous job for us - both selling our old home and buying our new one. He has tremendous insight into the Greenwood Village market, and was able to navigate each obstacle and hurdle we encountered with a calm and professional manner that helped keep us at ease in what is an inherently stressful process. Derek was on top of each deadline and made sure nothing was overlooked on either side of the transaction. He was very responsive to every question or concern we had, and made sure we understood the process and what to expect at every step.
Mr. Derek Rinetti is very knowledgeable with the real estate market in my area and the surrounding area's of Denver metro. He will provide you with current and past market trends for the purpose of evaluating the value of your home as it relates to comparable homes for sale in you area. Derek is very friendly and easy to work with and is extremely professional with the way that he approaches his profession. I recommend Derek to anyone that is looking to sell or buy a home.
Our home was listed for over a year in 2012 when the Denver real estate recovery was just beginning. We had two reasonable offers but in the end could not close the transaction. Shortly after delisting our home we received a call from Derek inquiring if we wished to realist with a new agent. That was not our intent at the time and so we thanked him for his call and invited him to stay in touch, expecting not to hear back from him. That did not turn out to be the case. Derek was familiar with our floor plan, having shown the home to one of his clients. Not long after he asked if we were interested in showing the home to someone who was looking for something similar to our location. We said sure and he showed up with a prospect. Still no sale. Good bye Derek. That did not turn out to be the case. Derek stayed in touch. Not in an annoying way but with a professional and informed perspective on what the market was doing in and around or subdivision. Our life circumstances had changed and now we had no immediate plans to sell. We told Derek that his time would be better spent with prospects that were planning to sell. Good bye Derek. That did not turn out to be the case. Derek kept in touch. A few emails an infrequent but occasional call and no pressure. I'm in sales and know how hard it is to be focused on a prospect with no intent. But I also appreciate someone who is professional, consistent and determined. And in 2016 when we decided to list again, Derek had earned his chance. We were not disappointed. Derek was as professional and informed as he had presented himself to be. His market analysis was thorough, his price estimate reasonable and his marketing plan appropriate for our executive level home. We can say this with informed confidence having bought and sold nine homes in five states over a three decade long career. This time we sold our home with only three showing. The final price was fair to both parties. Contract signed, goodbye Derek. That did not turn out to be the case. When we asked for help arranging to complete inspections items, he had a solid list of contractors and everyone one of them was well qualified. Our buyer needed to make some financing modifications that might have cost us the sale. He worked with their agent and lenders to give us the assurance that all was well. Sale made, money received, good bye Derek. Still not the case. We learned after closing that one of the inspection items had failed after close. We aren't liable for that, but Derek worked with the contractor and they made the work good. Now that's excellent service both before and after the sale. In writing this letter, we hope you give Derek and Avenue Real Estate a close look when it's time to list and sell your home. In a few years we will be returning to Denver and will need to buy a new home. Derek will probably have given us a call the week before.
