Get to Know Kathleen Garvey

Passionate about Interior Design, Homes, Great Food & Cool Music 

When you live each day surrounded by your passions, life is a fun adventure for sure. By day (and often times into the night), I help people start new chapters in their lives. Together we find their new home, sell their existing property or buy their first-ever place.

Interior Design has been a part of my life since I was a young girl. My mother would tell you that I loved the monochrome look long before it became a popular style.

Green is my favorite color and in the 70s, I felt pretty hip because I had a chic green shag carpet adorning my bedroom floor. Nowadays, we would say this stylish choice has vibrant energy combined with luxurious 'texture', even if the color is a bit overwhelming. As I moved onto various spaces and home styles over the years, the fun of figuring out how to create beautiful rooms never becomes dull.

The coolest part of my work today is that I have the privilege of guiding others with my knowledge. Together we search and find a new place to live, while gently letting go of the old one.

My day is complete when I've had a few good laughs, shared a chat with a friend and found time to enjoy cooking delicious food. Naturally, I have Pandora playing music in the background and depending on my mood, you might hear Van Morrison one night and Vivaldi the next. Each day can be fun when you design it that way, right? And that's just how I roll...

Very professional, energetic and incredible with selling/staging homes (her touch made a huge difference in how my home showed to buyers}. Because I trusted that Kathleen had my best interests at heart, I was able to get top dollar for my condo. I would highly recommend Kathleen to anyone that is looking for the best realtor in Denver. Btw, she also knew how to negotiate perfectly when I was buying a new one. Kathleen has been a pleasure to worth with on all levels.
Kathleen is, in a word, awesome. She is all about the details and logistics, nothing is left undone. We didn't have to worry about anything with Kathleen, we knew she would cover all the bases, from knowing great people to work with on the house inspection, to helping us make the best financial decisions. We fell in love with a house and she made it happen. She is a great negotiator and deal closer, mainly due to her tenacity and wonderful communication skills. We would not hesitate to recommend Kathleen to anyone and without a doubt we will use her again when we decide to move on from our great starter home.
Kathleen did an awesome job helping my wife and I find our first home, which we plan on growing our family in. She very knowledgeable about everything needed to know about purchasing a home and the right home for us. Kathleen was extremely professional and knew exactly what to do to get us into our new home in a month. Our home buying process was very smooth and easy, which allowed us to not worry at all. If you're looking to purchase or sell a home Kathleen is your best option.
This home was an estate of my late cousins. He and I were more like brothers and best friends than cousins so his death hit me very hard. He lived in the mountains outside of Blackhawk. I live in Chicago and was traveling back and forth trying to update the home, handle my late cousins affairs and look for an agent to list the home when I was done. I own a few rental properties and flip and occasional house here in Chicago but have no knowledge of the Colorado market. I looked online for agents but you never know what you will get going that route. So I asked a few of my cousins friends for references and Kathleen was referred to me by a friend of a friend. I was a little leery at first but he spoke glowingly of her when I talked to him so I decided to meet with her. From the first moment I met Kathleen I knew I chose the right agent. She was warm and very personable. She puts you totally at ease and seems more like a friend than an agent. Her knowledge of the real estate industry and the areas you will be buying or selling in, is outstanding. Her communications with me were also outstanding. I always knew what was going on. I received texts on every showing and e-mails and phone calls updating me on the progress of the house and feedback from the people looking at the house so we could address any issues the potential buyers might find. Whenever I called her she always had time for me no matter what she was doing and never tried to rush to get off the phone. When offers were received, Kathleen's negotiating skills made it possible for me to get the most for the house. Through the inspections and closing I was kept totally up to date on everything that was happening and did not even have to attend the closing. She is this best agent I have ever had the pleasure of working with and as an added bonus, now even consider her a friend.
We could not have asked for a better person to handle finding our home!!!! Kathleen was knowledgeable about all the areas we were interested in, she understood the process and how to get through it as effortlessly as possible. Kathleen was able to get us great resources as first time home buyers and help us to better understand what was in our best interest without being pushy. She is very detailed and very thorough in her work. There was not a stone left unturned. We never felt like we could not get an answer to a question and when we did get an answer she was straight to the point. Kathleen is a great Realtor that knows how to develop relationships with her clients and gets the job done. We are so gracious for all her hard work!!
I recently moved to Denver from out of state and thanks to Kathleen, I will be closing on my new Cherry Creek home in a few days. I was unfamiliar with the different neighborhoods of Denver, but knew there were some specific characteristics that I desired in my new home. Kathleen took the time to get to know me and off we went. Even though my new home was the first one we visited, it was increasingly obvious to me that Kathleen had found me my new home! Her professionalism and integrity in dealing with the listing agent was nothing short of impressive and her negotiating skills were a definite financial benefit to my bottom line. Kathleen also has a natural gift for interior design which continues to prove very handy. I have enjoyed working with Kathleen and was thrilled to pass her name along to one of my neighbors just yesterday. Kathleen Rocks!!

My husband and I were working with a realtor that often had excuses as to why she could not show us houses. We were at our wits end, and actually called Kathleen to see if she would show us a house that she had listed. We got to speaking with her, and she explained the Realtor process and how we shouldn't have to be calling others to look at a house. Needless to say, we switched so that Kathleen could be our Realtor. My husband and I had been searching for a house for months, it took Kathleen less than 24 hours to find us a perfect house in a price range where houses sell within a day. We realize how blessed we were to have found her, and have found a Realtor not only for us for life, but for our entire family. I honestly cannot say enough positive things about Kathleen and if you are reading this review... and looking for a Realtor, do not look any further. You won't find a harder, knowledgeable & kinder working individual.

We contacted Kathleen through one of her listings on recolorado to setup a showing because our "realtor" was on vacation. After talking to Kathleen and trying to explain that we were told to setup our own showings while our realtor was on vacation she explained that this was not the way a realtor was supposed to work. I talked to my wife and we waited out the 7 days remaining on our contract with our "part time realtor" and booked Kathleen. I can not explain how happy we have been with her. In the Denver market. She had found us a house and under contract in less then 22 hours. I don't know how else to say it except she Fing rocks. She did in 22 hours what our part-time realtor could not accomplish in 4+ months. I should probably say that again. Kathleen found us a house that would accept VA funding and pass the VA approval process. Then beat out SIX HIGHER OFFERS and had us under contract in less then 22 hours. IN THE DENVER MARKET!!!!!!!!! If you want a KICKA$$ realtor who will hustle her A$$ off to find you a house, call Kathleen.( If you have looked for a house in Denver you know what this means under 22 hours to be under contract.)

We met Kathleen about a year before we arranged for her to help with a listing and having interviewed others there was no comparison to the very knowledgeable, professional and experienced Ms. Garvey. She kept us up to date and had unique interpersonal communication skills. Her years of award winning experience in the art of staging came in handy. We were so pleased with everything she did for us. The best decision was having followed Kathleen's advice. The before and after photographs were beyond belief. This very classy and experienced lady has our vote for best realtor plus, her eye and attention to detail was mind blowing. Thank you Kathleen!
Kathleen is the reason we were able to find the right home for our family. We were moving from out of state and had a limited amount of time to find a good neighborhood. Kathleen emailed us listings for several months before we arrived and it gave us a good idea of what our money would buy in Denver. She led us in the right direction and we are very happy with the Cherry Creek school district! Our children love their schools and our home is perfect for our family. We are very grateful to Kathleen for all of her hard work and help. She's cool and actively involved our pre-teens as we visited the homes so they felt even more comfortable with the move to Colorado. Call Kathleen when you need help with finding a new house, she is amazing! My kids think Kathleen rocks and my Dad said she's one of the best agents he's ever met. That says only a fraction about how much we like her. Thanks so much for our happy new home!
Kathleen went out of her way to show me properties at all hours to accommodate my busy schedule. Kathleen made it a fun process, and I would highly recommend her as a Real Estate agent!
We felt really good with placing our trust in Kathleen. Her calls, emails and texts kept us in the loop at all times and she encouraged us that we'd find the right home. She paid attention to details we actually wouldn't have thought of and because of this, we made better decisions. It was also an extra-added bonus to find out Kathleen has some impressive credentials with home staging & remodeling. (Wait til you walk through a house with her!) Kathleen's real estate experience and perspectives were invaluable when it came to handling our biggest financial investment. We felt very fortunate to have a "true professional" on our side and we highly recommend you choose Kathleen as your realtor. She's a high-caliber person and you'll definitely be in caring hands! Thank you Kathleen

This is one impressive realtor! We felt so comfortable from the beginning with Kathleen and she went out of her way to help us find our new home in Denver. She made us feel so welcome. Moving from another state to Colorado isn't easy when you're trying to choose the right neighborhood with good schools and are unfamiliar with an area. Kathleen worked hard for us and focused on our wish list. We appreciated the exceptional service from her and the process went smoothly. It's a true blessing to have crossed paths with her.
