Barb Fiest focuses on 5 of her strengths:

“Establishing client loyalty and partnering with clients to a successful closing and beyond is my top priority.” I do this with a very personal approach and proven results. I make each client feel as though they are my only client and take as much time as necessary to get to their comfort level. During the transaction, I am in touch regularly to maintain their level of trust. I do whatever is necessary to assure my client’s complete satisfaction with the work I do for them.

“Gathering detailed information about the property and finding out what goals my clients have for the transaction helps assure a smoother road to travel. I believe the time spent up front is critical to the outcome!” From the first time I sit down with a client who wants to sell their home or buy a new one, I am listening and noting what they need and want. For sellers, I am proactive and try to eliminate surprises by addressing any items that need attention ahead of going on the market. For Buyers, I set up property searches based on their preferences and they are emailed with new listings in real time. I check location and history and preview the property if possible, to save time for my clients.

“I choose to be Personal, Positive and Friendly while employing Hard Work and Solid Negotiation Techniques I’ve fine-tuned over the years. To me, attitude is everything!”

“15 years of experiences with Buyers and Sellers provides me with valuable insight and knowledge in selling single family homes, condos and townhomes. My knowledge of neighborhoods is extensive.”

“Positioning myself with the top real estate company in the metro area provides my clients with an industry edge in an always competitive market.” Networking with 185 top real estate brokers in the city that make up Kentwood Real Estate benefits my clients in many ways. Each broker can tap into this combined knowledge and experience at any time. And we do! Many times a Kentwood agent brings the buyer for a Kentwood listing because of the communication we have as a company on a daily basis.

Barb Fiest is our realtor. Even though we purchased our home nearly three years ago, I use the word in the present tense because Barb Fiest is still working with us! Earlier this year, Barb came over and suggested improvements we could do to increase the value of our home. After that discussion, Barb suggested we try to have our mortgage insurance removed. I spoke with Trent Peaker from Megastar Financial, who financed our initial loan. Trent told us the amount our home would need to appraise for in order to have the mortgage insurance dropped. We did the upgrade Barb suggested, then we began the process with our lender to have our mortgage insurance removed. Both Barb and Trent helped us with this process, and suggested a full appraisal instead of a broker’s price opinion. When it came time for the appraisal, Barb pulled comps, and was present at our home during the appraisal. In the end, our home appraised for about $30,000 more than we needed, and we were able to cancel our mortgage insurance! We are now saving $130/month. Working with Barb Fiest and Trent Peaker has been amazing. They both are incredibly experienced in their fields, and want the best for their clients. We were able to buy the home of our dreams in a highly sought after location, and we have been extremely grateful every day for that. You can imagine our excitement now that we are saving money on our mortgage payments!

I recently had the pleasure of working with Barb Fiest and Kentwood Real Estate to market and sell my townhouse in the City Centennial. The experience was so awesome that I offered to share my experience with others who may be considering Barb as their realtor. My initial thought when selling my townhouse was to attempt to sell it myself using on-line marketing means. Wow, would that have been a huge mistake. I know there were positives and negatives in attempting this, but looking back, I would have been overwhelmed by the process and the results definitely would not have been as positive. While still considering selling the property myself, I interviews Barb and knew immediately that she was the person I wanted to represent me on the sale. She performed an evaluation of comparable sales in the neighborhood and surrounding area and recommended a sales price much higher than I would have thought possible. Barb provided recommendations for staging the townhouse and assembled a brochure and video that were simply amazing. When watching the video, I had to tell myself this really was my townhouse. Wall, within 48 hours I had an offer from a qualified buyer that I immediately accepted. It was far above what I had thought the property was worth, however, the buyer realized the value based upon the sales approach Barb took. Looking back, the inspection process was something I could not envision handling myself. There were items in the inspection that took me by surprise but were understandable given that it was a 30+ year old building. Barb led me through what items were appropriate to repair and what items I should decline to repair. The counter-proposals were exchanges and both the buyer and I were pleased with the outcome. Barb assisted me in coordinating contractors to perform the repair work and also met personally with the appraiser to justify the sales price. Barb presented a very professional package to the appraiser with the sales research and improvements I put into the property. The property appraised at sales price and the transaction with the buyer proceeded flawlessly. At the end of the day, both the buyer and I were happy…definitely a win-win situation and an outcome that I was very appreciative of. In closing, I highly recommend Barb and Kentwood Real Estate and would hire her in a heartbeat should I ever sell another property. You will be impressed by Barb’s professionalism, knowledge and dedication.

We were so grateful that Barb Fiest was our real estate agent in Denver when we purchased our home in Cherry Creek. My husband was transferred to Denver, so we were new to the Denver area, Barb was so helpful in helping us with the daunting task of finding a home and understanding the market. Being a real estate agent in Connecticut, I recognize excellent service and thorough market knowledge; we were so impressed with Barb from the start of our buying process Upon our first meeting, we were immediately impressed with how knowledgeable Barb was about the local market, identifying homes that fit our criteria; but moreover, Barb seemed to immediately place our personal needs in front of her own. She was generous with her time – constantly reviewing the market inventory and showing us homes that would interest us. Barb’s outstanding knowledge of Denver was measured best by all the important and relative nuances she provided us for all the homes and neighborhoods we visited. We finally found our dream home and she successfully negotiated a deal before the home even hit the MLS. Barb coordinated almost every facet of our close. Our close was seamless due to Barb’s attention to every detail. We consider Barb a good friend and a professional we would recommend to any of our closest friends and family.

We have bought and sold 6 properties and while we have been satisfied with each of those agents, I guess we didn’t know what a true professional was. Barb was simply the BEST in all aspects: market and transaction process knowledge, open and extremely prompt communication and follow through, advice, caring – she takes her job to a new personal and professional level. We were so fortunate to be represented by her. Highly recommend Barb’s services – all leading to a successful close. - Bruce & Sally

I have had the pleasure of working with Barb on several transactions. After working with numerous realtors over the years, I can honestly say that she is the tops! Barb brings many skills to the table but what stands out is her meticulously attention to detail. She is thoroughly prepared and it shows from the beginning until closing. The one thing that I appreciate the most is the fact that she keeps you informed throughout the process so that you are never wondering what is going on. So often with other realtors, I was the one initiating the calls to find out the status of the sale. I also appreciate her demeanor. She is always calm and when problems arise, she never gets excited. She buckles down and gets the problems resolved. I highly recommend Barb and will look to her again for help with future transactions.

My husband and I cannot "Thank You" enough for the terrific experience we had with you in the sale of our home in August 2013. Your professionalism and attention to detail every step of the way was exceptional. We feel that had we used any other realtor we would not have had the perfect outcome that we did. We will recommend you to everyone we know.
