Corey Wadley, Group Manager, REALTOR®

After 8 years of service in the US Army and many more years in retail and manufacturing middle management, I was determined to find something to do that I truly loved. Art and function have been driving forces throughout my life. My experience in luthiery and pastime vintage car restoration transferred into a passion for vintage homes. I bought an exquisite Craftsman Bungalow in Harkness Heights through Nostalgic Homes in 2000. From that point on I was hooked! I became a real estate broker in 2001 and joined Nostalgic Homes, where I met my wife, Jenny Apel. We were offered the incredible opportunity to become the new owners in 2006 and have proudly continued the tradition of excellence as one of the top-producing teams in the metro region.

I am an analytical person by nature and would be thrilled to share stats, facts, sales figures, and probably even a little history about the neighborhood with you. I can equally share advice from real-life lessons in renovating, preserving, and maintaining your vintage home—where to pick up that replacement glass door handle, vintage sink, or art deco lighting. I pride myself on my dedication to protecting my client's best interests and negotiating for a win while having a little fun along the way. I have been involved in, or supervised, hundreds of transactions across more than two decades in real estate. Feel free to reach out and draw upon my expertise!

“We contacted Nostalgic Homes because they had the most sales and listings of the type of home we were looking for—a Bungalow with vintage details. Corey gave us a level of attention we never expected from the owner given busy day-to-day operations. He was highly attentive, almost as if we were his only clients. He was easy to talk to, good at listening, and quick to respond even late into the evening. Corey proved to be a master contract negotiator, coming up with a deal that was good for us and made the seller happy, too. Relocating from San Francisco, we never expected the real estate in Denver would feel so difficult and we were grateful for Corey's help navigating it all. It’s because of him that we found the perfect house in a terrific location and within our budget. Above all, Corey makes it a point to help you meet your purpose rather than just fulfilling his goals. We strongly recommend Corey Wadley.”

“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!

“I spent countless hours reading reviews and asked friends for broker recommendations. I wanted a broker who knew the area I wanted to call home and ultimately found that in Corey Wadley. He was extremely responsive and thorough and answered my questions in detail. No attempts to go outside my comfort zone or pressure tactics like needing to “jump on this now”. I appreciated his professional insight for listings that caught his eye with remarks as to why. Corey worked around my limited availability to view homes and recommended Cherry Creek Mortgage which got me closed on time and hassle-free, with cheaper closing costs, and the same rates my bank offered. After my offer was accepted, Corey kept me on top of the inspection deadlines and negotiated repairs. Now that a few months have passed, I’ve reflected on my purchase and still could not be happier with my new home or the overall experience offered by Corey Wadley and Nostalgic Homes.”

“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.”

“It was an easy decision 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 and they helped to partner us with a builder and a property where we built the exact home we wanted. It’s the ‘insider’ knowledge and experience that Nostalgic has that clearly set them apart for us. Thank you, Corey and Jenny!”

Jason & Jen

“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.”
