We looked for months for the perfect place. Darlene was with us every step of the way. She was so kind, patient and knowledgeable with our needs. Ultimately she found us the perfect place. We couldn’t be happier with our new home. It was a perfect match for us. I would recommend Darlene to anyone looking for a home to buy.  (May, 2019)

Working with Darlene was an awesome experience. She took the time to listen to what we were looking for and she nailed it. The homes she showed us we’re right on target. She made our house buying experience really great. We learned so much from her. She is SO knowledgeable and a straight talker. We trusted her to get us the best deal for us and she came through with flying colors. Don and Deb Harkness, Strasburg, CO

“It was the most satisfying transaction I have experienced in real estate…”

Darlene is one of those rare individuals who understand the hard work ethic and dedication to their customer. She is highly principled and has unwavering integrity, qualities that are rare these days. I had moved into the Denver Area in early fall of 2016. I needed a home that would satisfy my criteria. I met Darlene and she immediately provided several properties that met with my criteria. Once I selected the property, my expectations were exceeded by her continued follow up, solving problems and continually making forward momentum to close. It was the most satisfying transaction I have experienced in real estate. I would recommend her in any real estate matter.

“Darlene listened to our every question, concern and wants but always kept us on track…”

Being first-time homebuyers is a very scary thought in itself, but imagine being first-time homebuyers who live out of state and won’t see their home until they sign for it?!  Our journey began in early December 2016 after finding out where we would retire to and which place the Union would put us in our second career.

In what I will call fate, we contacted Darlene.  She let us know that the house we were looking for had sold months prior, but that if we wanted to get into the perfect home for us, she would give it her all to help us.  That allowing her to handle all of the guesswork, she could provide us with the correct answers.

Still not knowing a price point, we gave her a range and she provided some beautiful homes with everything on our lists.  She reassured us that we were going to get the real deal with her, no fluff no sugar coating.  That’s exactly what we were looking for, someone who wasn’t in it for the money at the end, but rather someone with a caring heart who wouldn’t steer us in the wrong direction to benefit her.  She put us in touch with an amazing lender who knew exactly how to help us and could provide Darlene with what would be our drop dead price point.  We felt like we were being taken care of, we had nothing to worry about. 

We left the home tours and the actual bidding to Darlene.  Sight unseen we were going to purchase a home and put 100% trust in Darlene.  She suggested many areas, which lead us further out than we initially looked, but had great schools and the comforts of where I grew up.  We saw a home that was beautiful, had one less bedroom than we wanted, but for the price was a no-brainer.  We immediately told Darlene we wanted to “look” at that one.  She checked out two homes for us that day, and we chose the one we live in today.  With our offer accepted, We were going to be homeowners. 

We left our home in Washington not even 90 days from beginning this process and began our journey.  A few days, 3 roommates with 4 pets later, we were signing for our home.  As we drove back to the area, the excitement grew, and then, we pulled up to our new home.  We opened the doors and fell in love.  The home is everything we ever could have asked for.  Darlene listened to our every question, concern and wants but always kept us on track.  We put our lives in her hands and truly believe that had fate not stepped in right at that moment, we would have never found our home.  Now have a new family and friends….Darlene, her husband Jeff, who have introduced us to many wonderful friends.

“From day one, she was full of information and resources to answer all of our questions…”

To begin, I want to say- you HAVE to work with Darlene! There should be no other choice. Second, you should most definitely not base your decision solely on the percentage shopping. We initially looked around but were not satisfied with the inexperience of other realtors compared to hers. From day one, she was full of information and resources to answer all of our questions. We were shopping for an agricultural property with water rights. She was the only realtor who actually knew where to direct us and knew what we were talking about. She was so thoughtful and caring that the only reason we closed on our forever home was because she went out of her way and referred us to a lender that worked with us. I could not be luckier and more grateful to have worked with her! She was like our real estate “mom”!

“I have never felt as informed as I have working with Darlene…”

I had the pleasure of selling my home using Chateau Realty, and working with Real Estate Agent, Darlene Tatlow.  I have been involved in several real estate transactions in the past; however, I have never felt as informed as I have working with Darlene.  If there was a question I had, it was answered quickly and clearly.  I appreciated her professionalism in handling the sale of my home and I would highly recommend her to anyone.  Her diligence sold my home in less than eighteen hours!  She Rocks!

(PS:  closing on another home for Terri this week!!)

“She has become a very dear friend in the process…”

Darlene is absolutely fabulous!  We didn’t think we would be able to buy again due to some financial issues we had in the past.  But Darlene walked us through the entire process of buying our lovely home and connected us with a great lender!  She is very honest and upfront about everything which was greatly appreciated.  She has become a very dear friend in the process and we are very excited to know her!

“Darlene is great, takes care of her clients and knows real estate!…”

I will definitely refer anyone I can think of to Darlene. When I sell this house in a few years and head to the mountains, she will sell it.  She jumped through a lot of hoops to help me so I am glad to return the favors anytime. 

UPDATE:  I contacted Darlene in Spring of 2016 to sell the house she sold to me a couple of years ago.  We listed the home for $275,000.  We have over 10 offers and it sold for $310,000 CASH and closed in 15 days!  Darlene then helped me find my forever home in the mountains.  Another very smooth process.  Darlene is great, takes care of her clients and knows real estate!

“We will certainly be referring anyone we know to Darlene…”

I would do business with Darlene again in a heartbeat!  She was honest with us about timelines and offers, and supportive when we started to get discouraged. Even though Dad’s house sold fairly quickly, she held our hand and kept us informed and kept us grounded in reality. Everyone always thinks that their childhood home has more value and is more special than the next house. She honored our emotions while gently guiding us to the reality of it being just a house and made the letting go of it easier. Thank you for that and all your hard work.   We will certainly be referring anyone we know to Darlene if they have need of a real estate professional. She was able to present the perfect blend of emotional support and professionalism and it was a relief to work with her.

“Darlene is a superb agent and I would highly recommend her…”

Darlene was terrific in helping me locate properties that fit my criteria for rental units.  It was especially helpful since I am live/work in California to have a local realtor willing to visit and qualify the properties quickly. She was able to find a perfect 1 bed, 1 bath upgraded unit and help negotiate a terrific purchase for me, including requiring the seller to fix needed repairs prior to closing. Darlene will work very hard to find the right property for you and will invest a lot of time to make sure the deal closes as planned.   After the transaction, she went above and beyond and sent me a rental unit kit including tips on renting/managing properties with sample applications and leases.  Darlene is a superb agent and I would highly recommend her to anyone searching for rental units or their own home in the Denver market.

“We will definitely look to Darlene for an honest, diligent representative the next time we are in the market…”

Darlene has been a very helpful, knowledgeable and resourceful agent in our recent search for just the right property for us.  She is very willing to show properties on a timely basis and easy to contact with a very quick response.  We will definitely look to Darlene for an honest, diligent representative the next time we are in the market for a real estate purchase.

“…she kept my best interests in mind and was very responsive…”

I have nothing but good things to say about Darlene. Being my first time buying, I was pretty overwhelmed going into the whole thing but she was extremely helpful in the process and finding the perfect home for me. Starting out I didn’t really know exactly what I wanted but she helped me narrow down what I was looking for/where I wanted to be, thus ending up with a great house and great location. During the process, she kept my best interests in mind and was very responsive when we needed to put in offers or if I had any questions. I will no doubt be working with her again in the future and would recommend her to anyone looking to find the perfect property!

“If we need a residential broker again, we would definitely use Darlene…”

We contracted with Darlene to sell a home of ours that had been a rental for a number of years.  I met Darlene through her husband Jeff who we had so some cleanup, repairs, and painting to get the house ready for market.  When he finished the work, I met Darlene and we came up with a strategy – mostly hers.  We had multiple offers for more than the asking price and closed on the sale in less than 30 days at considerably more than the asking price.  If we need a residential broker again, we would definitely use Darlene.

“She made us feel like we were her only client…”

We made the right choice in selecting Darlene Tatlow to assist us in the purchase of our new home in Colorado.  Because we were relocating from Southern California where we had lived our whole lives, we needed a broker who was thoroughly knowledgeable and interested in teaching us important differences here like wells, septics, radon, etc.  Darlene was definitely up for the challenge.  She always listened to our needs and wants and offered valuable recommendations and suggestions.  She made us feel like we were her only client.  She took care of us like we were part of her family.  Darlene made it her business to take care of us above and beyond what you would normally expect.  The service, attention to detail and personal attention we received from Darlene were exceptional.  She showed a genuine concern to make certain that the home we purchased was the right home for us.

Darlene is truly a high-caliber professional and her knowledge of the Colorado real estate market and negotiating skills were key in the purchase of our perfect home!  We highly recommend Darlene if you are buying or selling in Colorado.  You will not regret making the decision to work with this ethical, hard-working, professional real estate broker.
