My experience with Baer Realty was outstanding. This was the first property sale that I have ever done, and I knew that I needed some help. Jan and Dave’s great advice helped us to maximize the sale price we received for our 1,004 sq ft condominium unit. Their work helped to attract 11 potential buyers and generated 3 contract offers the first weekend we listed the property for sale.
The condo was located in a community that is appealing for first time home buyers – and so we had to make many improvements prior to listing, including new carpet and paint, new GFI electrical sockets, a window replacement, and several other things in order to make the unit move-in ready for a new owner. While these improvements took time and cost money, they also enabled the homebuyer to obtain a mortgage for the newly improved property without having to pay for the needed improvements later – which is the reason we got offers so quickly. We recovered our investment in the upgrades that Jan and Dave recommended in the sale price we eventually received.
Dave Baer also went above and beyond the call of duty by bird dogging some additional work on the unit that resulted from the property inspection report while my wife and I were traveling. He even helped us physically remove some trashy items from a storage locker that we found was associated with our unit a couple of days prior to closing. There are plenty of realtors out there, but you’d have a tough time finding one that works as hard as Dave to help property owners get to closing.
In summary, I highly recommend Baer Realty. Jan and Dave are fantastic people who know their stuff, and will actually work for you. You won’t find a better realty company than Baer Realty.

Jan was fantastic to work with. She got us top dollar for our home in only two days. She also worked with us to buy a condo for our son and was likewise great. Jan not only helped with the selling and buying, but she was invaluable in providing lists of handymen, painters, electricians, etc. to help us get everything in top order. I highly recommend her.

Jan did the impossible, she helped us get financing for the home we wanted to buy. We sold our house through Jan and bought our new house through Jan. I don't think any other realtor would have worked so hard for us. Jan did not give up until we secured financing on our new home. We cannot thank her enough. Just know that she will go to the ends of the earth to find you the perfect home.

Jan Baer did an incredible job with the entire process of listing my home, advertisement and exposure, finding the perfect family to fit the property.... but most importantly, closing the deal through a challenging "qualification process" that is now the future of home buying. Jan delivered on everything she promised > On time, On target, On Price. I couldn't give a higher recommendation for a Realtor than Jan Baer! If you are in need of purchasing a home or selling a home, you will be remiss if you do not give her the opportunity to be your agent.
Jan is our Wizard from Oz. She has made an incredibly difficult long distance sell and move a piece of cake with her diligence, forethought, hard work and contacts. Within 24 hours of putting our house on the market, we had a cash offer OVER the asking price. Jan has handled everything from staging to cleaning to selling household goods to holding a garage sale and done it with charm and professional courtesy. We cannot say enough about Jan's personal touch and her belief in the highest standard.
It is hard to "Choose" all the ways we know Jan, there are many. I am happy to write on behalf of Jan and share our positive experiences with her. Jan was our real estate broker, she is a friend and we are now like family as we are close neighbors. :) I would recommend Jan to any friend or family member without hesitation. She will make the deal happen, and you will come out the winner. I always tell people that are "thinking" about moving as we were...tell Jan what you want and she will find it! I would describe Jan with these words: advocate, knowledgeable, well-connected, hard-working, detail-oriented, funny, caring and personable. Jan was instrumental in finding us a house that met our family needs (the house wasn't even on the market and we got it) as well as in renting our other home to qualified renters (twice!). She is a true delight to work with and she continues to ask about how things are going which tells me, mo
Widmar Client, Buyer
Jan was extremely helpful when we bought our townhouse in Littleton. She found the exact property that we had specified, was instructive during the inspection and closing process and saved us several thousand dollars due to her negotiating skills. Should we ever need to sell or buy a different property, we would contract with Jan immediately. We recommend her without reservation.
Jan is a true professional. I have worked with several real estate agents over 30 years and she is by far one of the best. She is thorough, does what she says she is going to do, and has my best interest at heart. I never had to worry about any balls being dropped as she was on top of everything. She is also a lot of fun to work with too!
Andrew and Kyle Pitts, Seller
We had an outstanding experience working with Jan Baer as our Seller Agent for selling our home in Littleton, CO. Jan was recommended to us by several of our neighbors with only rave reviews. Jan went out of her way to give us renewed faith in the home selling process. Jan was honest and forthright with us. She has truly put our best interest at heart offering to help us rent the property if we had not sold in the time frame we discussed. Jan held several open houses, offered us encouragement when we began to lose hope, and always kept high ethical standards. We would absolutely use Jan Baer again in the buying/selling process and would highly recommend her to anyone, friends and family who are beginning the home selling/buying process.
Bill and Monica Knickerbocker, Seller
Jan Baer was our Realtor in SOUTHPARK Littleton CO with the sale of our home and we sought no one else to assist us. Jan was as helpful and professional as anyone we have ever worked with, and exceeded our expectations in every way.
Sara Garlutzo, Renter
Coming to Colorado for the 1st time, Jan couldn't have been any better for us to have met. She is a fantastic Realtor and person! We were so pleased both during and after the process. She not only knows the business, but she has a wonderful network system! We highly recommend Jan to everyone, thank you Jan.
Jack Bayles, Buyer
We found Jan to be patient and understanding as our idea of a "dream house" evolved over several months. She showed us houses from Pine to Kiowa, from Hudson to Larkspur and several places in between. Always affable, Jan provided an honest assessment of houses we looked at. She is not afraid to call a house "lipstick on a pig," or say that it is overpriced for the market or area.
Kent Foncannon, Buyer
Jan helped us buy our first home in Denver and made the processes a wonderful experience. After finding our home we imminently knew it was the place for us, and knew many other buyers felt the same way. We found and put the house under contract in 5 days and closed shortly there after. She was instrumental in us getting this house that had a large amount of interest from other buyers. She has so much knowledge to share, having her as our Realtor for our first home was so important. After viewing dozens of homes, I knew that she was the perfect Realtor for us. She was very honest with everything we viewed and took or personal needs and desires above everything else. When negotiating the contract on our home (the contact was contingent upon our approval of the final renovations) she was very hard nosed and used all of her experience and expertise to correct the numerous issues that were found during our inspection. Jan was a pleasure to work with, she has a wonderful network of honest and hard working referrals and I plan on using her again when we are in the market for our second home.
Jan Baer put the Special in the word Specialist. She sold my house in just a couple of weeks and I personally believe that it was through her committment towards her clients. She is the most knowledgeable and helpful Real Estate Agent that I have ever worked with. I personally will recommend Jan to anyone that I know because I believe that Jan really cares about her clients. Thank you, Jan, for your committment and tiredless effort in what you do. Sincerely, Sharon Macias
I wish we could pick more than one category, as Jan has been both our buyer and seller agent (for both personal and investment property) as well as a dear friend for over 12 years. If you read her work history in the box below you will see more detailed and glowing reviews...ours among them.
Deseire Macias, Friend
Jan was amazing!! She helped us get our house ready for selling, as well as the repairs that we needed to take care after the inspection. She definitely goes the extra mile for her clients. I will definitely will use Jan again when it's time to buy.
We could not have had a better experience. Jan is more than professional, we would not ever use anyone else. She was helpful in every way we could imagine and in ways we never thought of! We learned a lot from Jan. This is our fifth home purchase with as many realtors and by far our best experience.
Richard Browne, Buyer
Jan was great in helping us relocate from across the country! She showed us the homes that were in our price range and in the areas that we preferred. She found us the perfect home in size and price. Her recommendations were very valuable in not buying the wrong place. She also had reliable contractors to assist us with minor details in getting our place ready for move-in. I will definitely use her again, if we ever move. She found us the best place to live, with all the amenities we wanted, in a location perfect for our commutes. Moved from Washington DC

Kathleen Foust, helped me sell a home
I had an absolutely fantastic experience with Jan. As a first time home-seller, I had no idea what would be best for my property, how to price it, or if it was even a good time to sell. Jan was incredibly patient with me, never pressured me, and gave me great advice. After all was said and done she helped me sell for top dollar at minimal cost, and I could not be more relieved that I chose her. She not only saved me time and money, but also the headache of worrying if my agent had my best interests at heart. Always super-responsive and proactive during the process, I highly recommend Jan to anyone for their real estate needs!
Regina Wofford, helped me sell a home
Jan was fantastic in assisting me with selling a property. She was responsive, honest, and efficient. I'm located out of state and needed her to be my eyes and ears in this transaction. The home was occupied by tenants who had gone through some personal and financial hardships. She was patient and kind, but firm in encouraging them to move and leaving he the home clean and tidy. Jan engaged her husband to help with some of the minor repairs so the sale would close on time. She was awesome and I will definitely use her again.
Mariceae, helped me sell a home
Jan impressed us so much when we purchased this town home (she was the Seller's Agent) that we called her immediately when we decided to sell. She was prepared through every step of the process, kept on top of the market to get us the best price possible, and offered us the best experience we have ever had selling a home.In addition, she will go the extra mile - making sure the front porch was swept of leaves each time there was a showing, bringing garbage cans if the wind came up, etc. Never have we had such service and this was our 4th closing.
jeff.hay, Helped me buy a home
I don't give out 5 stars to many individuals, actually to anyone, until now. Professional, honest, and responsive! Without Jan, I'm positive this deal would not have happened!

Well, the short answer is that Jan Baer is a great Realtor, and she will do a fantastic job for you! Here are the reasons why: first of all, the stress of finding a new home is reduced greatly because working with Jan is a very pleasant experience - she is friendly and it is easy to communicate with her. In addition, she not only has the experience, she also has the expertise: Jan is tech savvy (email, text, and she uses e-contracts to get all documents signed quickly), clearly knowledgeable in her field, and knows her geographic area very, very well. Third, Jan possesses very important (but frequently missing) traits for a Realtor: great follow-up, prompt in returning all calls, emails and texts, searches for what you want and gets the information to you at least daily, and she is simply extremely well organized! Last, but not least, Jan can actually help you to decide "what to do" when things get confusing: not only is she honest, but she gives great advice - when we couldn't find what we were looking for, she did NOT try to push us into just what was available - she recommended that we wait until we could find what we really wanted! That's the kind of realtor we like to work with, and you will, too!
I truly have never met anyone like Jan. I would trust her with any of my real estate needs. She not only is an advocate for you, but this woman leaves no stone unturned. She gets in the trenches, finds properties and buyers in the most unprecendented ways. She is thorough, determined to do right by her clients and works with the upmost of integrity. She has a wide reach and gets the deal done! Every client is personal to Jan, she will always have your interests at heart. Don't call her unless you are serious, because she will have your deal done in no time.
Jan has been a blessing to my family!!! She is professional, kind, friendly and the best realtor that we have ever met. She accommodated and worked with us to have the perfect home for my family!! We highly recommend her!!!
Thank you, Jan, for everything you have done and continue to do for us!!!!
Adam Landreth, Blue Ribbon Home Warranty Real Estate Pro
I have worked at Blue Ribbon Home Warranty for nearly four years. In that time I have had experiences with thousands of Realtors in Colorado, and Jan Baer provides a level of professionalism and dedication that is rarely seen. Every chance I get to speak with Jan is an opportunity to learn. Over a decade of experience gives her an intimate knowledge of the Front Range Real Estate market, but perhaps a greater asset is the communication she maintains with their clients. I am always happy to refer Jan to anyone looking to buy or sell a home, confident they will be getting the best service available.
Wow! Talk about a realator that goes the extra mile! She met with me at the last minute on Mother's Day & the excellent service doesn't stop with the close. I was relocating from the East Coast & she was invaluable in navigating my cross-country move. Taking pictures of progress, meeting contractors for estimates. She is amazing!!! She is always available for assistance with whatever you need for your home.
Rick Hjelm, Seller
Jan Baer sold our house when it wasn’t even on the market! On behalf of her qualified buyers, she solicited potential sellers (us), and upon our indication of interest, showed the house and quickly negotiated a deal that is a win-win for both parties. From our view¬point, this house sale was as pain-free house sale as is possible.”
Traci Winter, Buyer
Jan was the first broker that I met in Colorado. And for the record, I count my blessings daily for that chance meeting! Jan is one of those rare agents that is detailed enough to move a transaction along, yet compassionate enough to provide thoughtful advice and guidance when things hit a temporary bump. She represented both the buyers and the sellers in our sale, and was neutral, yet extremely effective. She is one of the most ethical brokers I have ever met. She is superbly knowledgeable about our current market, specifically our Southpark neighborhood and while that may intimidate other agents into filing false reports, I will absolutely recommend her services to anyone I can. I consider Jan a lifesaver, a professional, and now a friend.
Jordan and Chad Curtsinger, Buyer
We loved Jan. She was very personable, and knowledgeable. I felt comfortable with her helping us through the process. I went through a couple of agents before her, and there is no comparison. They were pushy about the process, trying to get me to make an offer on a house i didnt know if i liked. Jan was great, very patient, and offered great advice. I would highly recommend her to anyone looking for an agent in the denver/foothills area!!
Edward Spencer, Buyer
Jan is amazingly thorough, both in her knowledge of the market and in her ability to explain the positives and negatives of a property she's showing you. She went above and beyond to help us purchase our house. We were looking for 2 years and she was patient and understanding the entire time. We had several challenges along the way and Jan was able to help us navigate through all of them. I would definitely recommend her.
Jan is an all-around great realtor and person. She not only provided me with many great results of condos in the price/location I desired, but took the time to really show me the areas and answer all my questions. Also, Jan was very good about providing me with all sorts of advice and encouragement about my future plans based on her knowledge and experience. I'd definitely work with Jan again as a Buyer and probably a Seller as well.
Jan was referred to me to help me find my new home. The process took more months than expected and Jan never ceased to locate new property listings to check out. We drove all over the Denver area looking for my new home. Jan is there for her clients and is very knowledgeable of the Denver area, including water issues. She has a listing of reliable and affordable people to do any kind of remodeling, handyman work and even the best inspector I've ever had when purchasing a new home. I will always refer friends and associates to Jan for either selling or purchasing their homes. She will always greet you with a smile on her face and she has a heart of gold.
Jan is a tireless and knowledgeable go getter. She represented our best interest in buying a townhouse in Littleton, CO through her in-depth knowledge of the area as well as her many resources to help inspect and evaluate the property. We would recommend her in a minute
Cheryl Eckl, Seller
My house sold for cash in less than a week. Jan Baer isn't just an astute realtor. She's a miracle worker. And that's because she understands that financial savvy and heartfelt relationships go hand in hand. Jan is efficient, accessible and honest. And she works hard to ensure value and quality for all of her clients. Let Jan work for you and you'll not only get a great deal. You'll gain a beautiful new friend.
