Rick Oliphant

“Third time using Rick and Jean Oliphant as my real estate agents. Twice to buy a home, and once to sell it – most recently buying a home in Edgewater this past Spring. Their supreme knowledge of the area (and truly all of Denver) was a massive asset and they were both an absolute joy to work with, to be around and made sure all of my bases were covered. As long as they are around, they will be my only agent should/when I need one. Highly recommended!”  – Andrew Kahn

 

“Rick and Jean sold my house in FIVE DAYS.

Amazing. The whole process was reasonably smooth. Communication was never an issue – they were prompt, courteous and professional about everything. I felt like we work working as a solid team during decision making processes with the same goal in mind and the outcome was amazing! They are GREAT BUSINESS PARTNERS.

They were there for every step of the way and took care of issues I could not be present for myself. Their marketing techniques were aggressive and brought over a dozen showings in that first few days.

The contractors they suggested were awesome, reliable, honest and high-quality. I did due diligence by getting multiple quotes and theirs always won the bids. I do not regret anything about the experience.” – Carey Simon

 

Rick and Jean sold my condo in Feb of 2011. They were awesome in dealing with a tough situation. They are honest and hard working — which I think is what we all want in a partner/broker.  –Cyd Crouse

Jennifer Apel

“Working with Jenny to sell my home was a great experience!! She is highly skilled in the art of real estate transacting and left nothing to chance. For me, selling a home while living out of state was slightly nerve wracking but Jenny handled everything with ease. Her communication was top notch. She was able to handle several post contract issues with ease and really impressed me with her capability!! I’d recommend her to anyone! Thanks for all your hard work!!”      – Joshua Popky

“Jenny, when we met the second time you told me with great enthusiasm that you were going to bring me a buyer who would love the house as much as my mother did and as much as I did – someone who would appreciate it and be so happy to get to live there. I believe that is what has happened. You also said you’d have it sold in a month, and it appears that that has happened. You have done all of the things you said you would do and I can’t express to you enough how happy that makes me. It restores my faith in humanity knowing that there are people who tell the truth and do exactly what they say they are going to do. Thank you!” – Jody and Bea Waltemeyer

“When we were ready to start thinking about our next real estate move, we called Corey & Jenny to bounce some ideas off of them. They took the time to listen to our needs and evaluate our situation. Because the market hadn’t turned yet, they knew we wouldn’t be able to get the value we wanted and needed out of our house. They helped us put together a plan to do some renovations we could enjoy, but that would also add value to our house. Two years later when our family had doubled in size, it was time to make a move. Corey & Jenny helped us to prep the house, take photos and go to market. We sold the house in FIVE days – full offer, no concessions! I can’t imagine going through this process without someone who not only understands the market, but also understands your needs.”   – Adam and Amy Jenkins

“It was easy on deciding to hire Nostalgic Homes for our home search in the Highlands; We had lived in the neighborhood for years before buying and always noticed more nostalgic signs up than others! True to our expectations, our experience was top notch. Corey and Jenny listened to our needs and found us exactly what we wanted. Our situation was unique like all others, and they helped to partner us with a builder and a property where we built the exact home we wanted in the Highlands. It’s the ‘insider’ knowledge and experience that Nostalgic has that clearly set them apart for us. Thank you Corey and Jenny!” – Jason & Jen

 

“Nostalgic Homes (Jenny Apel) recently sold my home in the Highlands, and throughout the entire process she proved why she is not only the best known agent in the Highlands/Berkeley area, but also why she is one of the best agents in Denver bar none.

As the owner of Nostalgic Homes, I expected that she might pass off some of the typical agent responsibilities to her staff, however that was not the case at all. Jenny was thoroughly involved throughout the entire process from staging the home to negotiation to needed repairs to sitting next to me at the closing table. Her experience and knowledge is unmatched. She was easy to reach at all times of the day, and she made the selling process fluid and much easier on me throughout the process. A truly enjoyable experience, and I owe it all to Jenny. In my opinion, there is no better agent in Denver, and I recommend her wholeheartedly to anyone buying/selling a home.”  – Jason Bauer

 

“We both sold our old home and bought our new home through Nostalgic Homes and would highly recommend them. There are only a few times in your life when you sell your home. It is a personal and often gut-wrenching. It is complicated and you need someone who is on your side and gives you good advice and guides you through the maze of real estate. It was important from our first meeting to make sure Nostaligic Homes shared our values: that they were trust worthy, hard working, integrous and would be our advocates. Most importantly, we felt they LISTENED to us and took the time and energy to understand our situation, our goals and our concerns.

Throughout the process they gave us strong advice, answered our questions and clarified our concerns. Selling our house in a down real estate market was not easy, but with Nostalgic Homes on our side, it helped manage the anxiety. In addition, they gave us references for home financing experts that transformed our financing options in ways our bank never advised us.

As a family of 5 with two young babies, a 12-year-old a dog and a cat, it was important that we were able to show our home and still be able to live in our house. They arranged showings that were non-intrusive and worked closely with us to make sure our house was professionaly staged to gain greater interest from buyers.

I know we are only one family, but we are huge advocates of Nostalgic Homes and recommend them to all our family and friends.”  Andrew Hudson

“It is our pleasure to recommend Corey Wadley to anyone searching for the ideal home for their unique situation.  Living in Northern California, where housing inventories are low and real estate prices are high, we spent the last 5 years in search of a single family home without success.  After much soul searching we came to the realization that homeownership was not in our future in California.  With family in Colorado, we had been visiting the area for 20 years and always enjoyed our annual trips here.  Once we were able to let go of the idea of staying permanently in California, it was a no-brainer to restart our search in Denver.

While we have family in the area, none had a recommendation for a Realtor they could pass along, only horror stories of prior experiences they could share.  We decided to contact Nostalgic Homes after an exhaustive internet search of all Realtor websites we could find.  Nostalgic Homes had the most sales and listings of the type of home we were looking for, a Bungalow with vintage details intact, in the area we had expected we would end up in, the Highlands.  Though once we found CongressPark, we knew it was where we needed to be, and it was Corey that helped us get there.  He gave us a level of attention we would never have guessed we could receive from the owner knowing they are very busy with day-to-day operations.

We found Corey to be a highly attentive agent, almost as if we were his only customer, although we know that was not the case.  We never felt neglected or unimportant.  Easy to talk to, good at listening to his clients, easily available, and at all times quick at returning our calls or to respond to our queries, often late into the evening.  He did not waste our time with homes that were out of our price range or not in line with our needs.  As a professional real estate agent, Corey knows all the tricks of the trade.  As a master at contract negotiations, Corey came up with a deal that was good for us and made the seller happy as well.  In really tough times, he helped us to accomplish what we had not been able to the previous 5 years in California.

Relocating from San Francisco, we never expected that the real estate environment in Denver would be as difficult as what we had been experiencing in California.  We were grateful to have found Corey to help us negotiate the difficult market here.  It’s because of him that we found the perfect house in a terrific location and within our budget.

Above all, Corey is one real estate agent who makes it a point to help you meet your purpose rather than just fulfilling his goals.  We strongly recommend Corey Wadley.”  – Pat and Henry Messett

“I have to thank both Corey Wadley and Jenny Apel for their experience, professionalism, and patience as my wife and I searched for our dream home. While our goals and our budget didn’t always line up, Corey showed us a range of options in order to help us narrow in on our final house, pushed back on us at just the right time to help us make smarter decisions, and ultimately was crucial in negotiating on our behalf. After months of searching, he helped us land the home of our dreams on Lookout Mountain in Golden, CO and I’d highly recommend his service and the whole organization for anyone looking for a home in Colorado.”  – Bob and Pallavi Hardin

“I sold my first home located in another state and moved to Denver a couple of years ago. After renting a house in the Wash Park area during that time, I had time to explore and experience other Denver area neighborhoods. I was drawn to the NW side of Denver, particularly because of the close proximity to downtown for work along with the growing number of highly rated neighborhood restaurants for grubbing, small pubs for socializing, and unique upscale retail locations. After making the decision to buy a home and performing my own due diligence in finding an area for which to do so, I quickly realized I needed to do the same in finding a broker to start viewing houses; and if I were to find one, represent me in the transaction. I spent countless hours reading reviews of various real estate companies in addition to asking friends and co-workers for recommendations. I wanted a broker than knew the area I wanted to call home and ultimately found that in Corey Wadley with Nostalgic Homes.

Corey was extremely responsive and thorough in our correspondence from the very beginning taking time to address all of my questions in detail. I greatly appreciated this as naturally the more I know and understand; the more comfortable I am in the situation. I explained to Corey exactly what I was looking for in a house and the price range I wanted to stay within. The process was much less stressful for me in that these were the types of listings I consistently received for my review – there were no attempts to go outside my comfort zone or pressure tactics like needing to “jump on this now”.  I also appreciated Corey taking time to include his professional insight for listings that caught his eye with a few remarks as to why. In addition, there was never a time that Corey wasn’t willing to schedule around my limited availability to show me a house or schedule a phone call for a time convenient for me.

With Corey’s help, I was able to find THE home I was looking for in little over a month! The listing was posted to the MLS in late afternoon and Corey was ready to show me the house when I was available after work.  I knew immediately that this house was for me and was ready to make an offer! Knowing it was getting pretty late in the evening, I hesitantly asked when we could draw up an offer as I already knew I was keeping him from dinner (I still feel bad about that, Corey!). We spent the next few hours at his office late into the evening pulling comps to make a competitive offer. Corey was overall very knowledgeable in all areas including being able to accurately answer my questions of the mortgage process and available loan programs, as well as, recommend to me Cherry Creek Mortgage who was able to close my loan on time without hassle, cheaper in closing costs, and at the same rates offered by my banking institution. After the accepted offer, Corey kept me on top of the needed inspection deadlines, successfully re-negotiated with the seller’s side on a few finds after the inspections, and everything else needed through final closing day. Now that a few months have passed, I’ve had time to reflect on my purchase and still could not be happier with my new home or the overall experience offered by Corey Wadley and Nostalgic Homes.”  – James Ramsay

“When it was time for our family to find a home with more space, we knew we had many options for a Realtor. As long time residents of NW Denver, we were familiar with Nostalgic Homes and their reputation of being neighborhood experts, yet the service and expertise that Corey provided was beyond our expectations. Corey graciously provided insight into the many neighborhoods within NW Denver including schools. In addition to knowing the neighborhood literally block by block, he provided insight into the many different dwelling types and construction our neighborhood contains.  When we found our “perfect” house, Corey assisted us in making sure our offer stood out and was accepted.  Throughout our home buying process, we found Corey to strike the perfect balance between calm, organized, and efficient.  We would most certainly work again with Corey and his team. Top notch!” – Carly Calagias and Rob Richardson
