"Claire was amazing!!" Cindy Starbuck, submitted 9/29/19
"Claire was great to work with! She did a tremendous job researching available properties for us to tour and was able to find several homes that addressed our interests (especially with our goal of retirement). She also continued to update us on any new properties that became available that we might be interested in seeing. We especially appreciated Claire's responsiveness to our inquiries and always keeping us on track throughout the contract process with meeting deadlines. We would highly recommend Claire to anyone interested in finding their forever home!"

"Purchasing a house from more than a thousand miles away is a daunting task. Claire Averill made it a breeze. She identified early on what we were looking for in a house, and understood when we changed our minds on certain criteria. She found the houses that appealed to us most, and indeed found that "one perfect home" that we purchased. She negotiated every aspect of the process and without a doubt, got the best deal possible. She is amazing!"

"She was EXCELLENT!!!!!! Claire guided us through this process with excellent and kindness and patience. She answered all our questions thoroughly and quickly. We HAD and HAVE complete confidence and trust in Claire. She is honest and straight forward with advice, especially when we may be hesitant to try something a little beyond our comfort zone. She was a great advocate for us! Anyone would be lucky to use Claire as their agent."

"Claire was terrific to work with. We had a couple bumps in the road with prospective buyers, but Claire was well prepared, communicated effectively and gave great advice through-out the entire journey."

"My fiancee and I are first time home buyers and were referred to Claire by close friends. We could not be happier with our decision to work with Claire. Claire worked relentlessly to find us a home and exceeded our expectations. Claire provided extremely valuable insight and I felt like a very informed buyer because of her expertise. Her customer service went far beyond the transaction. My fiancee and I joke that our only regret is that we are no longer searching for a house and don't get to spend time with Claire every week!"

"Just a note to pass along some observations about our having worked together to successfully purchase a house in Parker. When looking for a realtor, it seems to me the important qualities are: pleasant to work with; knowledgeable and competent; sensitive to the clients needs and desires, as well as price parameters; and willing to put in sufficient time and effort.
"We were referred to you by good fortune. From the first day, it was apparent that we had a good working relationship, that you were pleasant and easy to work with, and that we would enjoy working productively together. After looking at various homes in several areas and developments, it became clear that you were knowledgeable about the areas, relative values, and advantages and disadvantages of each. You were always sensitive to what we wanted and were looking for, but at the same time, were willing to make helpful observations and suggestions. Your thoughts on values and prospective offer amounts were very good.
"Probably most important, and helpful, you were willing to put in the time and effort to show us quite a few houses so that we got quite a good feel for the town and development where we wanted to live. A number of our initial visits were exploratory in nature, since we had not sold our house in AZ, but you were always both willing and happy to take the time to show us numerous additional houses, even without the possibility of an immediate sale. You seemed to have a good idea of what we wanted, and ultimately made the excellent suggestion that we look again at a house we had previously seen, which resulted in the sale. Your negotiations with the listing realtor achieved a successful and desirable result. Needless to say, we are delighted with the house and expect to be very happy living here.
"It should also be mentioned that your suggestions for various inspectors for this unique house were particularly helpful and appreciated, since there were a number of issues. These inspectors were not only easy to work with, but excellent at what they did.
"In short, we extremely pleased with and grateful for the relationship and result. Thank you!"

"Drew and I were thrilled with the work that Claire did for us! We had a short period to find a new house and she was not only able to accomplish that, but she was able to get us the house of our dreams! We will be recommending Claire to all of our friends in the future!!"

“Claire has been a stand out Realtor at Perry & Co. since joining our company. Claire's service to her clients and her community are as exemplary as are her daily ethics. In today's Denver Metro real estate climate where many seasoned professionals are struggling to get their client’s offers accepted, Claire quietly excels at helping her clients buy (or sell) the home of their dreams in the neighborhood of their dreams. Claire has a real joie de vivre and that shines through in everything that she does.”

"Working with Claire Averil has become a family thing. My daughter and her husband worked with her a couple of years ago and couldn’t say enough nice things about her. My husband and I had a need this year for a real estate agent and called Claire immediately. She is more like working with a friend, you know she is doing the best for you and there is a high level of trust. I am sure if we have the need again we will call Claire."

"Someone once told me 'that you don’t know a good real estate agent until you have had a bad one'. Well, I can tell you that after having had both now, that I am so glad to have found Claire Averill from Perry & Co.
"Claire is a standout from the others that I have worked with and met. Her attention to detail, calm personality and guidance through the purchase of my new home was a tremendous find. She was accessible, knowledgable and followed up with each detail. THANK YOU, Claire! It was great working with you!"

"Claire has been a beyond excellent realtor.
"Working with Claire to buy our house has been an all around delightful experience. We highly recommend Claire to anyone looking for a realtor in or around the Denver area. She has gone out of her way to make sure that the purchasing process went smoothly and all parties were happy. Claire's insightfulness on buying and selling real estate combined with her hard working attitude towards researching properties makes her an invaluable asset for buying or selling a home. We only have good things to say about Claire and will continue to use her for all future real estate opportunities."

"Claire was an absolute pleasure to work with. Being a home inspector, I know many many Realtors and Claire by far and above stands with the elite! As you may or may not know, we relocated to Colorado from Indiana. The real estate market in Colorado is pretty volatile compared to Indiana and it took us 11 offers beforte we finally found the house we are in now. Claire went above and beyond the call of duty with us and what impressed me most about her service was that she was truly looking out for our best interest and not just the "sale". She was patient, listened to our wants and needs and ultimately wound up getting us the home we were looking for.
"I have and will continue to recommend Claire to anyone in need of a Realtor without hesitation!"

"I would like to thank Claire for the excellent service she provided for the sale of our home. This is the fifth time I have used her services and have been equally impressed with each transaction. Thank you, Claire, for your expert guidance during the selling of our home! If anyone is looking for a premier realtor, you will be in expert hands if you choose Claire."

"We loved our experience with Claire Averill. When we first were looking to list our house, she really had done her research. She had all the comps printed and organized and we came up with a good price for our house. She knew what we should list it for and what we should expect to get out of it. We really appreciated all of her input on what to do to get the house ready to sell and the timeline was good. Right before going on the market, Claire came over to our house and helped us move furniture to stage the house to sell. She was very timely on getting feedback for us. When we started to get offers, she was very good at negotiating for us. The closing and everything went very smoothly. We feel that Claire did her job very well. We felt like she had our best interest at heart during the whole process."

"We recently used Claire to sell our home in Broomfield. We were made aware of Claire, and her excellent record of staging and selling homes, from our friend and neighbor. We first put our home on the market in 2011 using another realtor, and disappointedly had only six showings in eight months! We were astonished and thought “this is just the housing climate right now in Denver.” After talking to our neighbor and hearing about Claire, we decided to give her a try and listed with her in April of 2012. Not only did we have a ton of traffic right away, we sold our home this last October. Claire was always finding new ways to market our home, followed up with each potential buyer and their realtor to find ways to improve our chance for selling, and kept in constant touch with us. We felt that we mattered to her.
"Claire was wonderful to work with: professional, on the ball, honest, and most of all so nice! She staged our home, gave us great feedback, cared about her work and never gave up. We can’t recommend her highly enough! She made our transition so easy and stress free.
"Perry & Co. is also a wonderful business, so involved with the community, we felt like family at times, and we were so confident in working with everyone involved in their office.
"Claire Averill is a woman of her word; you won’t be disappointed one minute if you choose to list your home with her. She will become your trusted friend as well!"
