Carla Bartell

Hi! I’m Carla, I feel so lucky to have grown up in and call myself a resident of Denver. I feel even luckier when I have the opportunity to help people understand what a great place Denver is to live in, and why buying or selling a house here can be a wonderful experience.


And who better to lead you through buying or selling in Denver than someone who is from here and knows the ins-and-outs of each neighborhood? The schools, traffic patterns, walk-able attractions and cultural feel of an area are what make a neighborhood tick, and I like to keep up with the growing changes that are happening in our city. Whether it’s the empty nester downsizing to a smaller, lower-maintenance home, a young couple making room for a family and needing more space, or someone straight from the coast looking to find the perfect, cool loft, I can provide answers to questions and solutions to challenges.


From raising three kids here and being involved in school and community activities, to playing in tennis leagues and being an avid biker, hiker and skier, I can probably answer most of your questions about hobbies and community involvement.


The home buying and selling process is arguably one of the biggest milestones in anyone’s life. It’s often complicated and requires professional skills, market knowledge, resources and the ability to navigate between the different dynamics of a deal. Having had my real estate license since 2003, I have the experience and expertise to manage the nuances of a transaction and get to the closing table. It’s about listening and making friends; I enjoy the process along the way, and my clients do, too. Give me a call if I can help!

"Carla was extremely helpful in dealing with the seller during the negotiation, appraisal and closing process, including the negotiation of a lease back to the seller. She is a consummate professional, always available and with a positive attitude.'

"Carla is awesome! She is extremely professional to work with and truly loves her job. She went above and beyond our expectations and made us feel well informed throughout all the steps of buying our first home. Although we were crunched for time to buy a home with a baby on the way, never once did we feel any pressure to put in offers to anything we weren't completely satisfied with. The best part about our experience was her experience in listening to the customers needs. She knew exactly what we were looking for before we even knew it. We will definitely recommend her and we will not hesitate to reach out to her in the future if we ever need to."

"Carla is not only the best real estate broker we've ever worked with but arguably one the best service professionals we've encountered in any industry. Her consummate knowledge, experience, taste, tact, and communication helped us to cut through the fog of the search process and find a place that we really love. She handled contract negotiations and the closing process flawlessly and with no-nonsense efficiency and professionalism, anticipating and resolving questions and potential issues before we even knew we had questions or potential issues. To anyone who wants to buy real estate in Denver, we have some very simple advice: save yourself a lot of trouble and just call Carla."

"I would - and have (even before we closed) recommended Carla wholeheartedly. She is fair, knowledgeable, straight-shooting, calm, thoughtful - absolutely consummate. We wouldn't even think about working with another agent going forward. You are lucky to have her as part of the Perry team - we felt very lucky to have her as part of our team!"

"Carla was very personable and great to work with!"

"I had an incredible experience working with Carla. I looked at houses for a year until I found one that I loved. Carla was very supportive and consciousness and had amazing follow through. I moved here from Los Angeles not knowing anyone and Carla helped me all the way until closing and it was a difficult purchase due to an uncooperative seller. She was always in my corner and I relied on her wisdom and experience throughout the year. If your smart use Carla for your home buying experience."

“Carla has been one of Perry & Co Relocation Department’s go-to Realtors since we first launched the department in 2009.  Carla is liked by virtually all types of real estate clients - first-time homebuyers, experienced home sellers, conservative investors, and corporate transferees - because Carla has the ability to make every one of them feel like they are her number one priority.  She carries herself in a calm and professional manner at all times.  Yes, there is always a smile there too.  Carla is one-of-a-kind but we would clone her several times over if we could.”

"We wanted to share our thoughts regarding our experience working with Carla Bartell on our recent relocation from the NY area to Denver.  We began working with Carla in the fall of 2014 as we prepared for an eventual move to Denver and wanted to get a sense of the area, potential neighborhoods in which to live, the general real estate market and pricing across the area.  Carla worked with us over the next 10 months until the closing on our new house in Cherry Creek North (CCN) in mid-July 2015. 

"Initially, Carla sent us listings via email and later as we made 3 separate house hunting trips,  she showed us homes in several potential neighborhoods, including their pros and cons and what the real estate market was like.  We determined fairly quickly that we wanted to live in CCN but we were not in a position to make offers on homes on the market, as our house in NY wasn’t listed yet and we were unsure of the eventual move date.  Over the next 9 months, Carla continuously sent us listings and showed us homes remotely (using FaceTime) so we could get a sense of what was happening in the market and pricing trends. 

"During this long process, Carla was extremely patient and supportive and never got frustrated when we either didn’t like many houses for a variety of reasons, or those we did like, we weren’t in a position to make an offer.  When we finally made an offer on the house we purchased, Carla quickly and efficiently got us all of the support we needed during the process as out of town buyers, including identifying and scheduling the inspection, roof inspection, radon inspection, contractors to provide estimates on issues that had to be repaired, etc…  Carla was also very effective when we needed to negotiate with the sellers on items identified during the inspections.  We recommend Carla Bartell enthusiastically to any buyer, especially people new to the Denver area who are looking for a very friendly, patient and warm realtor."

"Thank you so much for all you have done. I wanted to let you know that we have decided to stay in Chile, as Mark found another opportunity here.  This has all happened within the last week and things are crazy. We appreciate all the time and attention you gave us, helping us narrow down a neighborhood.  We are eternally grateful and if ever the opportunity arises we will refer you to anyone who is looking to move to Denver."

"Rebecca and I were very appreciative of your hard work. You were aggressive yet thorough and patient at the same time. You represented our interests very well in terms of helping us get the best price we could and you did the heavy lifting in terms of all the little details required to get the deal done. You were creative in terms of marketing and found the right way to advertise the property. Bottom line is that we would without a doubt use you again."

"Carla was great.  Everything went so smoothly.  She handled the few hiccups so professionally.  She had great recommendations for mortgage broker, inspector, sewer professional, etc.  I will use Carla again!"
