We decided to help him by getting him started in the housing market and purchasing a house for him there. Alex was in it with us for the long haul. He and our son found several houses that would have worked, but they all fell through. Finally, Alex found a great house, and everything worked out well. There were a lot of negotiations with the sellers due to major items that needed to be repaired (sewer line, plumbing and electrical issues, etc) and he negotiated a great deal for us! Since we are in Pennsylvania and were unable to come to Denver to participate in the search for a house, we relied entirely on Alex, his experience, and his sound professional advice. He definitely came through on all fronts! We could not have asked for better or more timely communication, and he always responded promptly to all of our questions and requests. It was so comforting to have a team with such competence and professionalism, like Alex and Derek leading the way and securing such a beautiful home for our son since we couldn't be there to do it ourselves. We would use them again in a heartbeat and would recommend them to anyone!
Deborah is truly caring, a hard worker, and just overall amazing. She’s super thoughtful in regard to what you may or may not like. She listens to you and applies what she learns about you to her work. I was a first Time buyer and had many many questions and she was there to answer them all. She worked with me to get me into the house of my dreams and I couldn’t be happier. My mom is now checking out places in CO to live closer and you betcha she’ll be using Deborah!
Having relocated from Los Angeles amidst a pandemic, it was even more important to have someone on my side who was an expert in the market and could guide me through the process. Our experience was top-notch. It was a pleasure working with Alex.
We were first time buyers and purchasing a home in Colorado while still living in New York. She’s very knowledgeable and we were lucky to rely on her expertise through this process.
I've never met an agent who knew the market so well, was so well connected to all the other people who work in all the various aspects of the industry, and who worked quite as hard. I call Alex first whenever I'm even thinking about buying or selling
Understanding the business of marketing and selling a home, as well as the stressful personal toll it requires of the sellers. Deb guided us through the process starting to close in 2 months, we would strongly recommend Deb to anyone who's looking for a true pro.
We were guided right from the start, from what we did and didn't need to do, what we could expect, the whole works. Everything was done so well that we had five offers within two days of the showing and were under contract within five days of going on the market, with plenty of help understanding a very complex bidding process. There's no way it would have been that painless or gone that well without them.
We were selling our house from out of state, and he went above and beyond to help us address issues, get local service people scheduled to do work, and make sure everything ran on schedule between the buyers and us. He also did a great job of bringing us all offers, explaining to us subtleties and catches in the differences in offers that we never would have thought of, and working with the other agents to keep things running smoothly. Selling a house can be such a stressful experience and Alex went above and beyond to make sure there was as little stress as possible!
He was quick to respond to questions and was very helpful through each step.
I had only owned the home for a brief period of time, but Alex was able to market it very well and I realized a large return over my initial purchase price. I also was suffering through some health issues at the time of closing and Alex was able to facilitate completing the closing process from my home which was greatly helpful. I highly recommend him.
We chose Alex Tooke with Peak Properties Group and we feel we chose the best real estate agent possible. It was a pleasure working with Alex and his team. The experience was fun and successful throughout. They dedicated themselves to selling our house in a timely manner by organizing 3 Open Houses, 24 requested showings and sold our house in 13 days. Alex and his team are knowledgeable, personable, and extremely dedicated to their work. They kept us informed, made suggestions, and worked closely with us throughout the process. Because of that, selling and closing was seamless. Throughout, we not only had the best agent possible but gained a friend. Thank you, Alex and your team, for all you did for us. We highly recommend Alex Tooke and his team for anybody that is looking for the best real estate agent team possible.
I’m a first time house buyer and she made the process as painless within the Denver market as it possibly could have been. She was informative, knowledgeable, and her responsiveness was unbelievable. All hours of the day and weekends she would answer any of my questions and keep me in the loop about what’s coming and when. As well she is friendly and generally seemed to lookout for my wellbeing when it came to purchasing the house. I appreciate all that she did.
We found them based on a review from another family from Texas that they’d helped. It was very important to us to find a realtor that was LGBTQ-friendly and was knowledgeable about areas where we would be most comfortable and welcomed. Alex and Derek not only met those needs but went above and beyond with finding a home we absolutely loved and even gave us advice that facilitated a quicker sale of our home in Texas. We really enjoyed working with Peak Properties and highly recommend them.
It may sound hard to believe, but we only looked at 4 houses, and got our offer accepted on our first bid! We told Alex exactly what we wanted, and he really listened to us. They carefully selected homes that were tailored to our requests. When we wanted to make an offer, we took his advice and has our offer accepted the next day! I can't give a higher recommendation! Alex & Derek are the best.
First, I spoke to Alex before my husband and I had even chosen Denver as our city of choice. We were looking to move from our 27-year home in Austin, Texas to a state with friendlier laws that fit our family better. Alex and Derek took almost an hour of their time to talk about our needs and expectations, knowing it was highly unlikely that they’d ever hear from me again! But I promised that if we chose Denver, they would be our guys. About two months later the time had come!! My husband had gotten a job in nearby Lafayette, gotten a rental home, had our daughter enrolled in school, and had explored the area. Alex and Derek bolted into action. (They were never actually out of action, as they had sent possible listings for us from the first time we spoke.) Within a week, we found the house for us. We placed a fast, reasonable offer and, after finding out there was another offer, rebid. The next day, we were told we had been outbid. But—the owner of the property had talked to someone she knew about her situation and a miracle happened! The people she spoke to knew Alex and Derek personally and, based on their reputation alone, she decided to go with us after all!! So, here I sit, in Austin, Texas, recovering from a spinal fusion, while my husband and children are settling into our new place, trying to get it ready before I get the ok from my doctor to fly to my new home. I can’t say enough about Alex and Derek. They sent us links to dozens of homes and, when the time was right, took my husband to over ten properties, in less than a week! They never lost contact with us and, as a result, we found the most beautiful home in nearby Broomfield, CO!
We did not have a very large budget and were on somewhat of a timeline as our lease was going to expire. Alex worked hard to find us properties that fit our budget and had as many of our desired features as possible. He was very responsive and patient with us as we looked at property after property, trying to find the perfect fit. Another thing I was impressed by was that Alex was very knowledgeable of almost all the neighborhoods where he was showing us properties. He was able to advise us on what the neighborhood was doing, and whether the house would be a good investment beyond just being a place to live. Also, I always felt that Alex was upfront with the actual value of the properties compared to the asking price. He would advise us on whether he felt the house was a good fit for us and what the compromises were. I never felt that he pushed us to place an offer on a house that we weren't absolutely sure of. Once we did find a home to place an offer on, Alex worked to make sure our offer was desirable as possible to give us the best chance to go under contract. He didn't stop there. Throughout the negotiations, he was there every step of the way explaining what was going on and protecting our interests. Alex drove a hard bargain and ensured that we weren't taken advantage of. Even after we closed on the house, Alex was responsive to any issues we had. All of the other members of the Peak Properties group that I interacted with seemed professional and they seemed to share Alex's zeal for the job. If they are even half as good as Alex, they would be a pleasure to work with. I would highly recommend working with Peak Properties Group to find your new home! They are knowledgeable, professional, and, most importantly, they care about finding what's right for you.
He was very helpful with providing staging advice prior to the open house. He listed the house and did a coming soon, which seemed to drive up the interest. Several neighbors commented on how much they liked his signage. During the process, he informed me of each step, so that there were no surprises. He answered all questions in a timely manner. He sold the house for over asking price on the first day of showings.
!! Yes, you read that right, Deborah made the impossible possible! Deborah went above and beyond by setting up video tours with me from over 1500 miles away as I was finishing my engineering degree in a college located Upstate,NY! I hit a snag with the mortgage lender that my company provided -- they said it was impossible to close within 4 weeks. Deborah found us a mortgage lender that closed exactly 30 days, matching what the other lender would have provided in employee discount interest rate and she even conducted a second video walk-through prior to the day of my official day of closing. She goes beyond the scope of a real estate agent especially with her years of experience in this profession; she is a true master negotiator! Also, a big THANK YOU to Deborah for the lock box gift, realizing how my lifestyle is with my need for service people who will be coming out often prior to my big move-in day. These personal touches are why you really NEED Deborah! When you're buying over a quarter to a half of a million dollar home you need to entrust the best agent experienced to handle this next phase of your life! She found a hidden gem of a beautiful home for me! Thank you so much Deborah! There are not enough words I can convey how much I appreciate all the work you have done in helping me to start my new life in Colorado -- in my first dream home I can call my own fresh out of college!
Knowledgeable, and just a great guy. You will enjoy him and his team. He has sold 2 properties for me, and we are hoping for him to sell the other 2 soon.
Deborah spent the better part of a year working on different buying options and negotiating how we could make it happen in a way that worked with the seller and with our budget. We are now first-time homeowners, all thanks to Deborah's expertise and true mastery in her trade. I've talked to many agents, but Deborah by far outshines them all. Honest, kind, hardworking, and full of integrity; she's got it all. I highly recommend Deborah Baker as a real estate agent.
Deborah is experienced, professional, and extremely knowledgeable about the area and the process of purchasing a home in Colorado. She delivers the ultimate in customer service, as exhibited by listening patiently, responding appropriately, anticipating needs and desires, and taking care of business in a timely manner. In short, we’ve purchased several properties in our lives, but we have NEVER before had this high-quality experience with a real estate professional. Do yourself a favor—if you want the BEST, most savvy, extremely thorough representative to help make your transaction go smoothly, contact Deborah Baker!
Deborah took the time to explain the home buying process in earnest detail and her broad knowledge of each step of the real estate process made every unique part of the home buying experience comfortable to navigate. Deborah took the time to familiarize us with Denver's metro area and her obvious experience with selling homes locally led her to quickly answer countless questions along the way. Deborah made us feel like we had the local knowledge and experience of having spent time in the area even though we had not yet been able to visit. Once we were comfortable with a general area and established a price range, Deborah responded promptly to our requests for showings. Her remote-showing techniques allowed for us to experience homes through her perspective while sitting hundreds of miles away at our computers. These real-time Google Hangout feeds were a huge benefit that made possible our remote viewings for myself in Boston and my girlfriend in Washington D.C. Deborah appreciates the need for detail and uses several techniques to give a real perspective of room sizes and floor layouts. On several occasions Deborah completed stand-alone videos of her walking through condos or townhomes while providing detailed commentary. The combined auditory and visual presentation left little to the imagination and was incredibly thorough. Deborah has been the MVP of our home-buying team and her "Pit Bull"-like protection of our best interests has kept us feeling comfortable and confident the entire way. We recently had an offer accepted on a condo and now that we are in the buying process, Deborah is still in daily contact as she continues to coach us through the closing process. We could not have asked for anything more from Deborah and truly appreciate all she did to make this a pleasant, educational, and exciting experience.
I told Alex what I was looking for and he came back with some great properties to look at. Alex's knowledge of the area, exactly where I should (and should not) live was great! I was on a strict timeline on my first visit when we were looking at properties. By the end of the week, not only did I find a home, but an offer had been made and accepted. Alex knowing my situation even made it possible for me to attend the inspection before my flight out. While away for a month, the paperwork and work behind acquiring the property never seemed to stop. It's like I was in Denver the entire time. After closing Alex helped me get my utilities hooked up, and has been very informative on some other questions I've had regarding the property. I couldn't have picked a better Realtor to help me through this process. This is my first home, and he made the whole experience very practical and smooth. I'm looking forward to keeping in touch with Alex and also recommending his skills to others.
I was able to get in touch with Peak Properties Group and Alex sent me a link to all the homes and Condos within the location and price range I was looking for. I flew out from California and Alex picked me up at the airport. We visited five properties. I was only in Denver for six hours but with Alex's help, I was able to find exactly what I was looking for. Before leaving for the airport, I put in an offer, and by the time I landed back in California, the seller accepted my offer. I closed within 14 days! Alex and The Peak Properties Group helped me during the entire process. Can't thank them enough and would defiantly use them again!?🏳️🌈
Alex helped me BUY and SELL my first home! I am very grateful for his help navigating the ins and outs. I would highly recommend him!
Not to mention we did this during a global pandemic, and we were out of staters from Michigan. Deborah made sure to keep us in the loop with all the deadlines. She always made herself available, literally I mean always. Anytime my wife had a question, it seemed like Deborah would give us a satisfactory answer within 10 minutes, even past 5pm. She also made sure she was educating us and giving us knowledge instead of trying to make us feel small and rush the sale. I recommend anyone who is considering on buying a home in the Denver area, give Deborah a call. You won’t regret it!
Their focus on LGBTQ+ clientele and expertise in the field made for an incredible experience. My partner and I were first-time homebuyers and Alex and Derek were so patient with us and advocated for us at every junction. And, it all happened because I Googled “lgbtq+ realtors + Denver” and I sent a random inquiry after I found their website and Alex called me within the hour…could not be more grateful for and proud to call Alex and Derek my forever realtors and now, friends.
Having Alex and Derek's experience made the whole process so much better. We felt very comfortable with them from our initial information-gathering meeting and really appreciated the expertise they bring on all house-related issues. They were able to point out construction details (good and bad) as we looked at potential homes. They clearly had a lot of knowledge about Denver and surrounding areas. They understood our needs and were able to guide us to properties that were a good fit. Once we found the right home, they went above and beyond in working with the mortgage, title, and seller's agent to get the sale finalized and to help us navigate that process. We highly recommend Peak Properties Group as the go-to agency in the Denver area!
My partner and I were first-time home buyers, so we were less than confident about navigating the housing market with such limited experience. Finding Alex and Derek was a total godsend. They are extremely knowledgeable and experienced, and they were able to answer any and all questions we had. No question was a stupid question to them. They were always available whenever we needed them, and they replied back to our many questions quickly. All communication was clear and honest. When Alex was showing us houses, he got to know our wants, needs, and budget immediately and stuck to them. I felt like our best interests were truly at the forefront throughout the entire process. Alex gave us a number of options to construct the best offer that we could make within our budget, which ended up being accepted on our first attempt. Alex and Derek are also genuinely great guys, which made the process smooth and fun. I couldn’t recommend using Peak Properties Group enough.
He made buying my first home stress and hassle-free. He took his time; went step by step in the process and made sure I wasn’t overwhelmed.
He patiently explained everything I needed to know as a first time home buyer and everything I’d don’t know to ask as well.
) - but so did most of the realtors we talked with. What set Alex apart was his innovative approach to technology and social media. Specifically: - In addition to MLS listings, Trulia, Zillow, etc., Alex set up a unique microsite for our house to really feature it. - Alex used Facebook, Twitter, and other social media to promote our house, the open house we had, and the listing - Alex took the time to understand the finishes we had put into the house and created "call outs" often with QR Codes placed around the house to give potential buyers additional information about features - He made our open house an "event" that drew the right type of buyers and agents - Alex was quick with feedback from viewing agents (both good and bad) which helped us stay on top of thingsOverall, Alex had a unique skill set for getting the word out on our house that other agencies simply didn't bring to the table. We would recommend (and have already) Alex to any of our friends in the greater Denver area looking to buy or sell a home.
Seamless service from beginning to end - Alex and Derek were on top of everything and always one step ahead. Super responsive, knowledgeable, professional, accommodating, and all around great guys to work with. You won’t be disappointed!
Their most exemplary quality is that they listen. The process of buying a home is overwhelming. Alex and his team know this, and they take time to understand what you want and what you can afford and tailor your home search accordingly, talking you through all the options and tradeoffs associated with getting you exactly (or as close as you can get) what you want. No easy task. Then, once you've made an offer, and it's been accepted, Alex lays out the resulting process all the way to close step-by-step expertly, patiently, and concisely. I never felt left adrift or wondering what was going on because Alex communicated with me throughout the entire, arcane process. The biggest takeaway from working with The Peak Properties Group is that I felt taken care of. I would (and have!) refer anyone looking to buy or sell a home to Alex and The Peak Properties Group. Highest recommendation.
After a very frustrating experience with a different Realtor, we are happy to say that both Alex and Derek listened to what we wanted and they gave us such a great showing of properties so we could pick the best area for our family. I can’t explain just how easy they made the house-buying process and we found the right house! Highly recommend them!
! Spent a WHOLE LOT of time helping us find the perfect new home to buy too!
We followed his advice to a "T" and sold well above asking price with no headaches. The process was incredibly smooth from start to finish. By choosing Alex as our agent we were able to sit back and enjoy the transition in life versus stressing about it. Trust is a huge factor for me and Alex earned my trust completely.
