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.

"I could not have asked for better service and help in moving my condo in the difficult situation that I was in. Personally, I would like to thank you and your team, all that helped for your hard work and effort. You made it very easy from a state away, over 8 hours, to sell a home in the Denver Metro. Again, to re iterate, great knowledge, service and did everything you said you would do. Once offers came in you had top notch input on this specific sale. My wife and I needed and appreciated all of your expertise with the Denver market, and it made us feel safe and comfortable working with you. I would suggest you 13 times out of 10."

"As first-time home buyers, we couldn’t have asked for a better realtor than Thorn. Although we had very particular ideas and a limited budget, Thorn helped us to find a home we love. He was extremely patient with our endless questions and knowledgeable about the Denver metro area and house-buying process. He was very thorough with the information he provided us and often pointed out features and limitations of houses we may not have noticed while viewing. Thorn always had our best interests in mind and never made us feel rushed or as if we were being sold a house we could not afford. He was honest, thoughtful, and thorough and we can’t recommend him highly enough."

"Thornton (Thorn) Luth is an outstanding real estate agent! His "easy going" personalty makes him instantly likable and he is the type of person anyone would want to work with. His knowledge of the markets throughout the entire Denver and surrounding areas was incredible. We had a few issues throughout the process and Thorn came up with solutions for every issue!! His ability to think through problems and quickly suggest solutions sets him apart from other real estate agents we've dealt with. He made himself available 24 X 7 and went above and beyond what we expected from a real estate agent!! We give Thorn our absolute highest rating and would recommend him to anyone looking for a personable, knowledgeable, problem-solving real estate agent!! "

“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!

Austin Schuler, submitted 6/21/17
“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.”
Jeff Sanderson, submitted 8/10/16
“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.”

“Having a previous career in sales didn’t hurt as Thorn clearly established a solid real estate career in quick time. Thorn continues to be a go-to Realtor for our Relocation Department because he gets rave reviews from his clients for his professionalism, ability to close complex transactions, and his likability. In fact, Thorn is one of those rare individuals that everyone seems to adore. He has a talent for connecting with people on their interests, and he always makes the often arduous task of finding someone the perfect home a pleasure. Perry & Co. couldn’t ask for a better representative of the company out on the streets.”

"Professional, sincere, and easy going, Thorn Luth was the perfect realtor for us as we embarked on purchasing an investment property in a competitive market.

We highly recommend Thorn!"

"Working with Thorn was a pleasure. He completely understood my needs and suggested neighborhoods in Denver that I may prefer. As I was 3 hours away in the Mountains, he would send me suggestions and videos, and truly maximized the time I had to view properties. In fact, the house I bought he viewed as soon as it came on the market and called me to say 'I’ve found your home, when can you get here to take a look for yourself.' He then ensured the buying process went smoothly from start to finish. Thorn is incredibly efficient, communicative, professional and fun to work with."

"This was a first time buying experience for me and Thorn could not have made the process any easier. From first contact to multiple showings, the offer and negotiation process, all the documents and closing, he was easy to get a hold of, quickly responsive and truly cared that I was getting what I wanted. I would not hesitate to use his services again in the future!"

"My wife and I initiated a somewhat leap of faith in our moving to Denver a little less than a year ago – and smack into the middle of (arguably) the hottest housing market in the country. After interviewing several realtors in the metro area, we met Thorn (Thorton) Luth (of Perry & Co. Realtors), hit it off based on personally shared background and interests – and ultimately couldn’t have been more pleased with his professionalism, his customer service, and his results!
"Thorn has a wonderful mix of affability and sincerity, along with a thorough knowledge of the market and a dogged pursuit of the needs of the buyer/seller. Because we were renting, we had time to formulate a game plan together… beginning with a “slow roll” into the market by using technology to enable our home search, continuing with personally guided tours of the neighborhoods, and culminating with a day-by-day analysis of what was available in our target range, with immediate inspection and review. This strategy, along with his constant support and communication enabled us to find the home we wanted and successfully get it under contract - all within approximately a month and a half.
"We would wholeheartedly recommend Thorn to family and friends alike. When we had questions or requests, he always followed up immediately. His recommendations have all been worthwhile, he achieves results, and he is an asset to his company and a good man. In a market such as this, that is worth something." - 2044419/reviews" target="_blank">Marcie & Aaron Bolton, submitted 6/22/15
"Relocating to a new state can be difficult on a family with so many things going on. Fortunately, having Thorn there to guide us through the home buying experience made our relocation from Dallas to Denver so much easier on our family. From the start, Thorn stayed very engaged in communicating with us before our house hunting trip to line up showings and make the most of the two days we would be in Denver. When finally meeting Thorn in person it did not take long before we knew that we were in good hands. We were very impressed with Thorn’s professionalism and understanding of the housing market in the greater Denver area. Thorn exceeded our expectations from a professional standpoint. On top of that, Thorn has an amazing personality – he put us at ease, we had so much fun, and he helped make our home buying experience a positive one. We could not have asked for a better agent…"

"I can't believe I bought a house that I had never seen in person! My relocation was long & drawn out with limited time to actually fly to Denver to look at homes. Thorn took wonderful, narrated videos that allowed me to feel like I was walking through the house next to him. And when I walked through the front door, for the first time, I felt like I knew the house. Thorn was professional and very thorough as well as being a good negotiator. He made my relocation painless and I can't recommend Thorn highly enough."

"Having Thorn Luth as my Realtor made my relocation so easy. I've moved from coast to coast and many places in between. With the red hot Denver market, it took a long while to find a house. Thorn stuck with me the whole time. I loved how he was able to discern my needs from my long list of wants. He really listens to you. His patience and positive attitude were refreshing. He was more than willing to go above and beyond. I cannot recommend Thorn highly enough."

"I just wanted to write to you and thank you for your help with the purchase of my first investment property. I know when I started this process I wanted to sell my primary residence and upgrade to a larger house. My wife and I interviewed several real estate agents and decided on using you because of your attention to detail and you made us feel like your #1 client.
"When things changed on our end and we decided to by an investment property instead (which was a considerably smaller purchase price), surprisingly we still felt like you #1 client. We purchased the house in our price range and you negotiated a great deal for us."
"I look forward to working with you in the future, in the meantime I will recommend you to my friends."

"Having decided to look for a condo or townhouse as a second home in the Cherry Creek or Golden Triangle areas of Denver, in late October 2013 we were walk-ins to Perry and Company’s office in Cherry Creek North. We were met by Thorn Luth, who worked closely with us from that day forward. Beginning with our initial meeting, Thorn conducted thorough and continuous research to identify properties meeting our criteria in these two neighborhoods. More important than selling us a house, Thorn took personal responsibility toward finding the right house for us. In addition to connecting us to Home Search on the Portal, he maintained contact with us several times a week as properties were added to the list. He set up numerous property viewings for each of our several visits to Denver during November to February, and willingly worked several weekends in order to accommodate our travel schedules. As we live out of state, Thorn often toured properties for us in our absence, sending us his comments as well as communicating with the listing agent if the property met our criteria. Thorn was very easy to communicate with, quickly answering or returning our many phone calls and emails.
"After a contract was signed, he made extra efforts to assist us in communicating with the homeowner’s association management company and several other parties in our behalf, doing tasks that would not normally be expected. We had full confidence and trust in him at all times, and his guidance in making the right offer was highly valuable and led to a successful and smooth process through closing.
"Beyond the normal activities associated in working with a realtor, it was a true pleasure working with Thorn. In addition to his highly professional business approach, we also maintained a personal relationship, and we came away feeling lucky that Thorn just happened to be the broker that greeted us when we came into Parry. He is an outstanding representative for his company and clients, and we will look forward to the opportunity to recommend Thorn to anyone looking for a home in Denver."

"Thorn was challenged to help us find a wonderful home to suit our needs in a a very short time. Working through 600 miles of distance between us was no challenge for Thorn! We did a marathon viewing of homes in 3 days -- put in the offer and Thorn took over to get us to Colorado from Montana in one month's time start to finish! To make things easier so we didn't have to travel back and forth, Thorn was there to offer support to our daughter on builder walk throughs - orchestrated the back to back closings in Montana and delivered the house keys to us the day we arrived. His follow up has been awesome! Thank you, Thorn, for everything! You are the best!"
