Having lived in Colorado since 1994, I understand the draw of the mountains, our outdoor recreation, and unbeatable weather. Whether you are a long time Denver resident, or new to this great city, I welcome the opportunity to find you the home of your future. I’m a believer in strong customer service, attention to detail, and safeguarding the best interests of all my clients, and will work diligently in finding you a new house, or selling your current one.
I grew up in Pennsylvania, went to Colby College in Waterville, Maine, and moved to Colorado for the skiing, outdoor lifestyle, and mountain activities. I attended the Daniels College of Business at the University of Denver and graduated with my M.B.A. in 1996. I worked in sales and marketing for over 15 years and look forward to putting that experience to work for you.
As a Denver resident for more than 20 years, I know the character and subtle nuances of our Central Denver neighborhoods, like Park Hill, City Park, Cherry Creek, and Uptown, in addition to the Downtown/Golden Triangle/Highlands areas and metro Denver’s suburban communities and cities like Stapleton, Superior, Westminster, Lakewood, and Centennial to name a few.
I realize the importance of timely communication, accurate information, diligent follow up and strong negotiation, and deliver a full service real estate experience to all my clients, whether buying, selling, or relocating. My focus is to ensure a smooth real estate transaction and earn your trust, friendship, and future business and referrals.
“Thorn has helped me on two RE purchases - a downtown Denver condo and a garage unit in Castle Rock. He is very knowledgeable and professional regarding all aspects of RE transactions. He was also very thorough and helpful when unexpected or unusual issues arose, and always patient and willing to continue a search when that was necessary. Thorn is a great guy and a pleasure to work with.”

"We recently worked with Thorn for the second time, and I can't imagine a better agent to work with. This time, we used Thorn to both sell our condo and purchase our new home and his level of professionalism, knowledge, and his hard work were second to none. Not only is he a great real estate agent because of his business acumen, but he is an incredible person all around. He was always there to talk us off the ledge when we got stressed, he brought a level of fun and joy to a process than can be very cumbersome, and truly cares about each of his clients and what is important to them. Thorn expertly negotiated for everything we needed during both the buying and selling of our homes - he is truly an advocate for his clients. After working closely with him for 3 transactions on 2 separate occasions, I can honestly say we not only gained a new home but a friend as well. I would recommend Thorn Luth to anyone looking to buy or sell a home in the Denver metro area."

"Having Thorn as our realtor was an absolute pleasure! From day one when we first met and started looking at must-haves for our new home, all the way through closing, he could not have been more attentive and helpful in our process. He always presented us with options and scenarios so that we could make the best decision based on our needs and wants. Thorn's professionalism and attention to detail had us feeling like we were his only client. Any question we had, even if it was concerning the sale of our old house, Thorn had the answer or was happy to help find it. As we were moving from out of state, he even made contact with the realtor selling our previous home to make sure everything went as smoothly as possible! On top of all this, Thorn is a delightful person to be around and we really enjoyed spending our time looking at homes with him and working through the purchase. We highly recommend Thorn as a wonderful realtor!"

"I wanted to pass along the following review of our experience in working with Thorn in the purchase of our first home in Westminster. We could have not asked for a better experience in our first go out the gate. Thorn's professionalism and personality enabled us to stay grounded but have a fun time too!
"Although we hope to be in our home for the extended future! Should we ever need to navigate the market in the future, we trust and value Thorn's expertise, support and would look no further! We would recommend him to any family friends in the market."

"Selecting a real estate professional to represent me in the purchase of my home was an important decision. After being new to the Denver market I was looking for a professional who could help me understand and realize the best possible areas to look for a new home. Thorn Luth was the right choice. Thorn listened closely to our family requirements, developed a plan implemented and then executed the plan to perfection. His personal attention, professionalism, and communication were exemplary and would highly recommend him."

"I worked with Thorn buying my fourth home, and each purchase has been through a realtor. The experience with Thorn was hands-down the best across the entire process. From spending time to truly understand what I was looking for, to patience in showing me more than 50 properties while providing unmatched knowledge of the metro area, to ensuring that my concerns were quickly and efficiently taken care of as we neared close, Thorn provides a world-class experience. I absolutely have and will continue to recommend Thorn as the go-to agent for anybody who is looking to purchase a home in the metro Denver area!"

"There were some curveballs during the process, but Thorn can't prevent hail storms from happening!
"We will most definitely be going out of our way to recommend Thorn to folks who we know are looking to buy a home in Denver. He did a great job! We feel very lucky to have found him."

“Over the past year and a half we have worked with Thorn to purchase six rental properties and to sell one property in the Denver area. First, Thorn did an excellent job in identifying potential candidates that met our specific criteria, not wasting our time with properties that we were not interested in. Second, Thorn’s judgement in discussing whether to purchase a property was outstanding: financially astute and well researched. Third, Thorn was an enthusiastic and skilled negotiator, negotiating very attractive prices and terms for us while being sensitive to the needs of the sellers. Fourth, Thorn was proactive and thorough leading up to closing on the properties, even when we had fairly complicated situations, making us comfortable and confident in the process.
“Though Thorn is based in Denver proper and most familiar with that area, he brought himself up to speed by his intelligence and work ethic on close in suburbs and gave us great advice on these areas.
“Most remarkable about Thorn though is his high ethics and client focus. On a number of occasions he advised us not to make an offer on a house or to terminate a contract; impressive given that he is paid on commission based on completed transactions. He always had our interests first and foremost and thus we trusted him immensely.
“Thorn is also very mature, patient, personable and fun to be with, important traits when one spends a lot of time looking at properties together. He got to know our whole family, even dogs, and always took an interest in them and always remembered to ask about our children.
“We heartily recommend Thorn, confident that he will serve his future clients as well as he has served us.” - Jim Coffin & Karen Hayes, submitted 4/3/17
"We meant every word of it and Thorn deserves it too. We consider him a friend now and respect and trust him so much that we have referred our two adult children who live in Denver to him."

"Last fall, my fiancé and I had the greatest experience working with Thorn. He came highly recommended from a close family friend and was truly nothing short of his notable reputation. Thorn was extremely knowledgeable and tactical as our real estate agent. He made sure that we evaluated and considered every option carefully even if it meant going out several times and seeing (more than a few) homes. Thorn made it clear from the start that his goal to find us “our” home was as essential to him as it was to us. He is a true expert in his field and guided us from beginning to end, not to mention he is an absolute joy to be around! Working with Thorn, we were able to find the most incredible home that surpassed our expectations and in the best location imaginable. We couldn’t be happier or more thankful."

"Now that we are fully moved in and only a couple of days from making our first mortgage payment, I wanted to take a moment to thank the man who made it possible.
"Thorn exceeded all of our expectations for a realtor. As first time home buyers, we could not have asked for a more knowledgeable, understanding, genuine or thoughtful person to help guide us through the home-buying process. With Thorn's dedicated support, counsel and friendship, we found just the right place to call home.
"When we started our search, we didn't know what type of property we wanted or where we wanted to live. Thorn took the time to get to know us and tailor his recommendations to our needs. When we flip flopped back and forth between condo, town house or single family home, he walked us through the positives and negatives of every option, with our lifestyle in mind. His priority was always to help us find the best fit, regardless of how long it took or how many times we changed our minds.
"When it came to finally placing an offer and negotiating, I found Thorn to be an amazing counselor. After getting to know us through the search process, he knew exactly where my concerns would lie and did everything he could to make sure I felt comfortable. Thorn did a wonderful job of providing detailed summaries of every interaction with the seller's agent and including me in every next steps discussion. I know that he had my best interests at heart and was even able to secure our new home at less than asking price."
"All in all, we couldn't be happier with the amazing service Thorn provided. We would (and do) recommend him to all of our friends. If / when we grow out of our current home, Thorn will be our first call."

“It was a pure pleasure working with Thorn Luth from Perry & Co when looking for a house in Denver. He came highly recommended and for good reason. Not only was he available to show houses on short notice, he was always prompt in answering our numerous questions throughout the entire process of buying a home.
“Trying to buy in such a seller friendly market can be a daunting task, but Thorn took the time to walk us through each step, making sure we understood the process. He was invaluable in helping us getting our loan approved. Neither my wife nor I have the best credit and had to get an FHA loan, and we were getting the runaround from the big banks. Thorn made one call to his mortgage guy and within THREE hours we were in the process of sending our financial information to get pre-qualified for the loan. And that was on a Sunday. He did whatever it took to make sure we had every chance to get under contract. Without him and his team, there is no way we would have been able to meet the short timeframe to put an offer in on our home.
“The stressful period from contract to closing can be a little intimidating, but Thorn walked us through each step. He has a way of explaining the intricacies of the process so we were able to understand and be involved in the process. He made it easy. He made it fun.
“I would recommend Thorn to anyone I knew in the market for a home in the Denver area. Good customer service doesn’t seem to be as important as it once was, but we couldn’t have asked for anything more than we received from him.”

“I have recently worked with Thorn Luth who was my selling and buying agent and was very happy with the experience. Thorn knows the real estate market in Denver very well and understands the expectations and subtleties of buying and selling in this market. He is very knowledgeable about the real estate business in general and has considerable experience in the Denver market. He is an excellent communicator and is readily available to answer questions provide suggestions to the client, and give encouragement when necessary. He is always pleasant and upbeat and never seems distracted or pre-occupied. I respect his opinions and input in marketing my house which always turned out to be correct. I can highly recommend working with Thorn Luth as a real estate agent for the prospective buyers and sellers.”
