Testimonials

My Realtor, Rich Petrone and his wife Sue, were the only reason I was successful in buying my home. I was looking for the "right" property in a specific highly desirable area. This would be the second home they helped my buy, along with two successful sells. Rich was, once again, incredibly patient and diligent in orchestrating my search, showing me homes, and previewing homes for me (I was living out of state at this point). When the listing came up late one evening we both saw it and knew it would go fast. I had great confidence in his judgement, and I was confident making an offer, sight unseen, based on his viewing and approval. My offer was selected among multiple offers and my closing went smoothly. I came to town for the pre-closing walk-through (my first in-person sight of the house) and stayed through the closing. I have moved into my beautiful home and couldn't be happier! I have referred two family members and several friends to Rich and Sue, and all have had great success with this talented team.

Joanne - Buyer (2018)

We enjoyed working with Daphne during our home search. She was enthusiastic, full of energy and positive...and she really cared about what was important to us. We would definitely refer Daphne to family, friends, and anyone looking to buy a home!

Jason and Taryn - Buyer (2018)

After interviewing a handful of brokers, including some "neighborhood experts", I met with Rich and Sue. Thank goodness I did. I will tell you that they were the only brokers that were open to some of the intangibles in our neighborhood and my house, instead of just relying on per-square-foot data analytics when pricing the house initially, as well as managing the process of dealing with other brokers and offers as they came in. I knew that they had been in the business for a lot of years, etc...but I really did not know the level of negotiation strategy that they were capable of. The net result was over a quarter of a million dollars more in my pocket than the next closest "market comp analysis" that some of their competitors provided me. Wow. Thank you, thank you, thank you! I cannot imagine, after this experience, using anyone else to buy or sell real estate in Colorado.

Larry - Seller (2018)

Rich and Sue are very personable and friendly. They both keep in touch either by email or on the phone to keep you updated on what is happening throughout the sale. When we first met Rich, he came into the house to check out the house to get it ready for selling, and gave us some pointers on what we should do to get it ready. We sold our house within one day!

Robert and Donna - Seller (2018)

From the minute Rich sat down with Mom and Dad and myself in their home, we knew we had made the right choice for helping them downsize by choosing Rich and Sue to handle their many needs. Your patience and understanding is what got them through what was an incredibly difficult time. Things seem a lot better for them now thanks to you both and your team at HomeMark. My siblings and I are also very grateful for all the support you gave us during this tough time by being so ready to refer your cache of professionals, who were so very kind and thoughtful to Mom and Dad. You are indeed the one stop shop to make a home selling and buying experience its best. I hope to be able to refer you as much as possible. Thanks again for everything! You are both THE BEST!

Danita - Seller and Buyer (2018)

I lived in the same home for over 30 years, so when it came time to sell, the whole electronic process way of doing business was intimidating. Richard and Sue were great to work with. They ware always available to answer all my questions. (I had many). The HomeMark team kept me updated on the day to day process of selling a house, which helped me to be prepared for closing. I would highly recommend Richard and Sue.

Bonnie - Seller (2018)

Rich is very knowledgeable about the Denver/Colorado and international aspects of buying and selling houses. He is jovial and is always pleasant, making doing business with him an absolute pleasure.

David and Melanie - Seller (2018)

My wife and I are very proud to say that Rich and Sue have been friends of our family for many years, and there would have been no other choice when we sold our home. We owned the home we sold for 24 years prior, and in all that time, Rich never failed to keep in touch, both on a professional and social level. His knowledge and expertise in the field are unparalleled, and his access to competent inspection and repair personnel is second to none. In addition, Rich and Sue are just a pleasure to do business with; they keep things serious when necessary, and light and funny otherwise, which makes the whole selling process, from start to finish, much less stressful and more enjoyable. Every step of the selling journey was relayed to us, so we were never in the dark as to progress, and for us as first-time home sellers, this was much appreciated. Rich will always be referred to first for anyone we know looking to buy or sell a home.

Steve and Leslie - Seller (2018)

We worked with Shannon during our move to Colorado and she was very enthusiastic and did everything that we asked of her.  She has a great team who always answered our questions responsively.  We would definitely recommend Shannon!

David  -  Buyer (2017)

Rich Petrone was great to work with, enjoyable to be around and made the process of buying a house in this crazy market much more fun.  Rich also was able to help us find contractors for work that needed to be done on our rental.  I would definitely recommend him and his team.

Kelli  -  Buyer (2017)

Rich and Sue were so understanding and wonderful to work with on everything.

Trevor and Megan - Seller (2017)

I live out of state and was purchasing an investment property in Colorado.  Shannon showed the home to my daughter and we quickly got under contract.  Shannon's availability, responsiveness and knowledge were a 10 across the board.

Bob - Buyer (2017)

When I was ready to sell and purchase a new home, Shannon was my number one choice. She is my friend and did a great job throughout both sides. Thank you!!

Rich has a great personality and we've known him for a long time. He does good business and his team were on top of all the paperwork.

Shane and Hope - Seller (2017)

This is the fourth home I've purchased and third home I've sold with Rich. He has always gone the extra mile to ensure I have found the right home within my price range. Everyone was very professional and knew the answer to any question I had. They were very helpful guiding me through each phase of the home sale and the purchase of my new home.

Alan - Seller and Buyer (2017)

Rich and Shannon, and their team helped us navigate a very difficult market, enabling us to find just the right home for less money than we expected. We always felt everything was under control. We will gladly refer anyone we know to Rich.

Jo Ann and Lora  -  Seller (2016)

"Hard Charging" Rich Petrone is just that.  He knows his market and he knows his business.  Rich and his wife Sue are the ultimate professionals.  They understand the concepts of customer service, follow up and follow through.  My wife and I would (and will) recommend them to anyone in need of a Real Estate professional.

Scott  -  Seller (2016)

Rich and Hard Charging Homes did a great job for us.  We live in another state and needed an agent who could take care of a lot of the details.  He arranged for final cleaning, painting and repairs.  Plus he helped us figure out various legal and financial details.  In short, he was on top of everything.  I highly recommend Rich if you need an agent.

Jeff  -  Seller (2016)

Rich and his team worked extremely hard on our behalf through the entire process of buying our first home.  He went over and beyond the basics to assist us in any manner he could in order to make the buying process as seamless as possible.  We could not ask for a more experienced, knowledgeable and friendly person to help us purchase a home.  It was truly a pleasure working with him and his team.

Dale and Virginia  -  Buyer (2016)

Hands down the best in the business!  Rich's willingness to go the extra mile was an asset for us and his entire team made our experience one that everyone should enjoy. Rich knows his stuff and his support staff is second to none.

Scott  -  Seller (2016)

A most sincere thank you to Rich and the entire Team for your valuable assistance in achieving the closing of our townhome at French Creek.  Due solely to the HOA litigation circumstances, it was certainly challenging, and, at times, frustrating, but we always felt that you did your very best and that you creatively, honestly, and successfully dealt with the issues in a focused, straight-forward manner.  You were also very considerate of our frustrations, and we thank you for that, specifically, as we know there must have been many more times that we were not the most positive, upbeat clients that you would have hoped for.  Thank you for your prompt communications, your attention to detail, your steadfast advisement, your integrity and honest and relentless, un-waivering commitment to sell our home, and your professional expertise in all matters.  And thank you for your friendship.  We are immensely grateful and blessed to have been able to work with such a great team of professionals.

Scott and Lauren  -  Seller (2016)

Thank you Rich and Sue for all you have done over the last several months!  You have both been a pleasure to work with and lessened the stress of buying and selling our home.  Your Team has been great to work with, and for that we are very appreciative!

Tina and Scott  -  Seller and Buyer (2016)

Being new Colorado transplants, we were nervous about jumping into this crazy market, but Shannon made our home buying process seem easy and even fun. Shannon was always so attentive and available, not only for last minute showings, but also for answering our million and one questions about the Denver market and how to get the best loan for us.  She really knows the area.  Shannon is very professional and always had all paperwork, negotiations and deadlines met.  We really appreciated all the people who work for Hard Charging Homes, they all had our interests in mind.  We ended up with the perfect home, in the neighborhood we wanted and under budget!  I would highly recommend Shannon Petrone if you are buying or selling a house...she is the best Realtor we ever worked with...certainly the nicest!

Angela and Mike  -  Buyer (2015)

Rich has helped me with several Real Estate Transactions over the years and I give him of 10 out of 10 rating!!  He listens to people and understands their situations.  I will continue to refer him to my family and friends.

Dave  -  Seller (2015)

Rich and the entire team were great to work with!!  My heartfelt thanks for the guidance you have given me and the exceptional diligence with which you have pursued the sale of my house!  It was reassuring to feel that I was associated with people who have a genuine concern for my interests.  You have gone above and beyond, since I was so far away!

Robin  -  Seller  (2015)

Rich and the team are very knowledgeable and skilled at problem solving.  They were all great to work with.

Joanna  -  Seller  (2015)

We met Shannon when she was showing our neighbor's home.  Shannon listed and sold our house in a matter of days, and found a new home that is just perfect for us!! We appreciate Shannon's responsiveness, timeliness, efficiency and good service.  The Team is excellent...don't change a thing!

Bob and Sharon  -  Seller and Buyer (2015)

Rich, Sue and the Team were great to work with!  Very team oriented approach at Hard Charging Homes, so it felt like someone was always working to take care of me. Very appreciative of all their efforts, especially since there has been so little supply of homes and everybody is competing to outbid each other.  Very stressful market for buyers, and the crew over at HCH made things much easier to work through.  Great, friendly people!!

Ted  -  Buyer (2015)

I worked with Rich before and he kept in touch with me long after the sale was complete.  When it was time to sell my home I called Rich and I received the same great personalized service, can-do attitude, and general sense that he cared!  Rich and the Team were great throughout the entire process, provided good service, and were upbeat, friendly, attentive, and willing to help.

Kenny  -  Seller (2015)

Rich and his entire Team were great to work with!!  They were very helpful, and responsive with all matters.  I would highly recommend Hard Charging Homes to anyone I know!

Greg  -  Seller (2015)

Rich and the Team assisted us with the sale of our home, and the purchase of our new home.  We give them a 10 out of 10 in all areas!

James and Bunnie  -  Seller (2015)

Rich and his Team were Straightforward and Sensible and we would definitely refer them to Friends and  Family.  They were very Pro-Active throughout the transaction and Responded Quickly.  Don't change a thing, the team works great!

Kevin and Kelly  -  Seller (2015)

Rich and his team pulled out all the stops for my family.  We sold a home with him in January and closed in March.  We plan to sell another this spring.  The whole team was responsive, professional and friendly.  They gave us good advice at every turn and got us a great price for our home.  Just as important as all of the nice things I have to say, I can honestly write that I do not have a single complaint.  It also fees good to work with an independent, when so many agents work for mega-companies.   Not only would I recommend Rich to friends and family, I already have!

Kevin  -  Seller (2015)

We appreciate Rich's honesty and give him a 10 out of 10 in every category!  We value his opinion, especially when we aren't sure on something... it was nice to have his experience on our side.  We LOVE that you really are a team in every sense.  It didn't matter who we spoke with, you all knew exactly what was going on and you are all very pleasant to work with!!  Rich has helped us with the buy/sell of at least 5 homes and we refer him every time we hear of someone moving!

Stefan and Megan  -  Seller and Buyer (2014)

Rich and Sue have been friends of ours for many years and they just helped us sell the home we lived in for 35 years.  We found their entire team to be helpful, caring and friendly.  Our home sold quickly for the highest price in our neighborhood!  We would absolutely refer them to our family and friends.

Sisters of Benedict ~ "The Nuns"  -  Seller (2014)

Rich and his team are the best.  We would not use anyone else...period!  From the start to finish, he and his team were available for any questions or concerns on selling our home.

Nate and Brigit  -  Seller (2014)

We worked with Rich to sell our home and buy another that better suited our needs.  Rich has worked with us before, and several members of our family and friends.  He's been in the industry for years, and that experience really helps in home searching and marketing your home.  Rich has extensive knowledge of builders in the metro Denver area, and individual neighborhoods, in general.  His staff is responsive, professional, and always a joy to work with.

Chris and Stefani  -  Seller and Buyer (2014)

Rich and the team were truly involved with us from the start, to closing.  Rich was always available, including weekends, and when he was on vacation the team was there immediately.  Rich's experience let us test the market and narrow in on a target market price and sell.  Every member of the team contributed, and each has a specialty that was important to us and the closing.

We will be back when we're ready to upgrade and would recommend the team in a heartbeat.

Gary and Gail  -  Seller (2014)

"Hard Charging" Rich Petrone is just that.  He knows his market and he knows his business. He and his wife Sue are the ultimate professionals. They understand the concepts of customer service, follow up and follow through.  We would (and will) recommend them to anyone in need of a Real Estate professional.

Charles and Karen  -  Seller ( 2014)

From the beginning to the end of the sale of our Mom's house, Rich and his whole team were efficient and involved. Rich definitely had a pulse on the market and made himself knowledgeable of the area where the home was located. He continued to monitor the neighborhood weekly during the short time the house was on the market to be aware of sale competition.

Closing procedures went smoothly because of the focus on every detail.

Hard Charging Homes functions as a seamless team and there was always someone who was immediately available to answer a question or provide information. Each team member visited the home and had a sense of the family and our values. Their interaction was always personable.

I would highly recommend Rich Petrone and Hard Charging Homes for any real estate interaction. Not only will you receive professional expertise but you will enjoy your interactions with the team.
