Never losing her focus on real estate, Heritage Floral was sold, bringing many wonderful relationships to her real estate business and philanthropic endeavors. In 2017, Victoria is proud to join Perry & Company, Realtors, and is looking forward to taking service to her clients to a new level. Victoria lives at The Landmark and you can find her at Perry & Co. at the Landmark Office. She hopes you will stop in anytime to say hello!

"Victoria was very knowledgeable about our property as she had been involved in the sales of many within our association. She was easy to work with and never pushy. I most valued her responsiveness as we put the property on the market- she helped us locate a plumber when this came up as a need, and kept on top of all the showings. She developed a booklet about our home for prospective buyers and brought in an amazing photographer. We could not have been in better hands."

"Victoria Gartelos is a remarkable agent and her knowledge and professionalism were exactly what we needed in the purchase and then sale of our condominium. She is an expert in the Denver market and was able to bring us top dollar at the sale. Victoria anticipated every roadblocking issue that arose and demonstrated creative thinking to resolve each of them. We have worked with her in the purchase and sale of two other homes and we wouldn't even consider hiring another agent. We feel so grateful that we have a real estate agent that we can trust. Victoria Gartelos is the best!"

"Victoria knows her stuff! She is very professional and explained all of my options. I truly appreciate her giving me the information to make an informed decision. I also liked that she has decades of experience working with my specific condo community. It was convenient for her to contact the HOA and maintenance staff since I was selling from out of state with a short closing time frame. Thank you for making the selling process less stressful."

"I would highly recommend Victoria. We were on a pretty tight timeline and moving internationally. Victoria was really great at catering to our needs and handling everything with our place. We ended up moving out of the country before the house was sold but Victoria handled everything. It was great having someone with such high attention to detail and care overseeing the sale of our home."

"Best agent I have had. Excellent coaching on how to present my modest home. A project was required with an electric panel replacement. She put the pieces together for us and coordinated the contractors, the permitting and inspection. Couldn’t have asked for a better project manager. Victoria made the whole process of selling my home very smooth. Hire her. You won’t regret putting your valued assets in her hands. And did I mention that she is an always on person? Negotiated the offer late into the evening with me. My kind of person."

"We could not have been happier with our experience selling a Morningside condo with Victoria's help. She was always pleasant, super-enthusiastic, on the ball and very creative in marketing a somewhat unusual unit." - name">Savannagh Kacey, submitted 5/20/17
"My wife and I had needed to sell our condo quickly to secure a down payment for new home. Victoria understood this and quickly, but with amazing attention to detail, was able to secure a bid for our condo. She organized and coordinated all the paperwork, contractors and showings with incredible speed and accuracy. She communicated all the information that is involved in selling our property so thoroughly that I feel like a could be a real estate guru. My wife and I are so grateful for Victoria's amazing understanding of the Denver-metro real estate market and truly appreciate all her help with selling our condo."

"It seems to me that Victoria Gartelos has two really big passions in life - real estate and charity fundraising - and I am fortunate at Perry & Co. to get to see her work tirelessly at both. I’ve seen Victoria in some very stressful situations related to both of these passions and I can tell you that not only does Victoria always maintain her calm demeanor but she also maintains a genuine smile on her face. That only comes from loving what you do and loving who you do it for; in fact, Victoria’s clients are very much part of Victoria’s family. Her family of happy clients benefit from her care, experience and expertise which have been honed by her over 40 years in Denver real estate. You would be well-served by choosing Victoria to work tirelessly for you."

"My wife and I had given up on trying to find and new home in the Denver metro area due 2 the insane bidding wars that usually occur before a bid is even accepted. However, upon meeting Victoria she informed me she really tries not to allow things (bidding wars) to get out of control. She fulfilled her promise 100%! Our bid was accepted within 24 hours, with no bidding wars occurring. She went over all the paperwork thoroughly with us in a way we could understand and feel secure/comfortable with making such a big decision. We love our new home and will be using Victoria to sell our previous residence. Thanks again Perry and Co for making the purchase of our new home so easy and efficient."
