Testimonials

After three years looking for a home in the hardest market in the nation, I was daunted to say the least. Then I found Thrive. I could never have expected such a wonderful team with supreme knowledge and candid opinions. They aren’t looking for just a commission and sale, they really want you to be happy for the long haul. Highly recommend.

Dave and his team were incredible! We were on a low, tight budget and looking in a very specific neighborhood. They were able to find us exactly what we were looking for! They directed us through making competitive offers and we only needed to look for 2 weeks, and only put in 3 offers, before we had an offer accepted. We were first time home buyers and they really helped us understand the process and helped us make decisions that were best for us, not just for them. We will definitely be working with them again in the future!

I recently worked with Tim Aberle from Thrive Real Estate in order to purchase a property. I was an out of town buyer with zero familiarity of Denver seeking to buy a condo for my college age daughter to live in for a couple of years with the eventual goal of turning the property into a rental. The assistance that Tim provided was outstanding. His knowledge of Denver is superb. As an out of town buyer who needed a lot of help, Tim’s expert advice regarding various neighborhoods helped me select a property that will meet both my present and future needs. While I was a bit apprehensive about buying property thousands of miles away from where I live, Tim made the entire experience smooth and enjoyable. His responsiveness was fantastic. He returned my calls or texts immediately and was always available to answer my questions. When it came time to start to look at properties, he made himself available to visit any potential property as soon as we found one that looked good. While Tim’s support was outstanding, what may have impressed me most was Tim’s willingness to share his knowledge. He was always quick to offer advice and went above and beyond in terms of guiding me through the process from property search, making an offer, negotiating and then the closing process. The next time I need a Denver real estate professional, I will turn to Tim without hesitation. I highly recommend Tim Aberle and Thrive Real Estate.

Kelly was amazing. Her whole team was at Thrive Real Estate. Kelly was very thorough in the entire process and was very quick with response on any issues or inquiries we had. She was always reachable no matter the day. She wasn't as familiar with the location or area we purchased in, but if she was unsure about something she found out really quick. She did a fantastic job especially considering she was operating out of her normal geological area. She went out of her way to drive to Colorado Springs from Denver several times for us and with us. She is a professional and you would not go wrong with her by your side. Thrive is the company we will use forever as well as Kelly.

We feel so lucky to have worked with Jill Horch on our first home purchase. She listened to our hopes and dreams and helped us to make mindful choices. She is very knowledgeable about the market, and directed us to house and neighborhood we hadn't even thought was possible. She worked expertly to negotiate a wonderful deal for us. In addition she has a great team of people in her circle that made the whole process smooth and painless. She really teaches you about the process along the way. We knew what was coming next. Thank you so much Jill for going on this journey with us! We will definitely do business with Jill again and recommended her to EVERYONE!

Zach was great through the process of finding a home for our family. The entire Thrive team was incredibly helpful, resourceful, and gracious throughout the entire process of buying our new home.

Couldn’t be more thankful for Zach and then entire team!

Kelly was awesome from the start. Two minutes after I clicked the more info button Kelly was calling me to help me out. She was great in communicating from start to finish. Kelly is a very high caliber individual. Rebecca at Thrive real estate was also very helpful through the whole process.
Matt P.
Elizabeth and the Thrive Team were wonderful to work with. As a first time home buyer, it is easy to feel lost and discouraged. Elizabeth was such a wealth of information and was incredibly supportive through the whole home-buying process from start to finish. She is reliable and responsive and provided a lot of advice, especially with contract negotiations and after the home inspection. I can't say enough about her and the Thrive Team. I will definitely work with them in the future, and recommend the whole team, Elizabeth especially, without hesitation.
Emily B.
Kevin Shelledy and the Thrive team were awesome!!!! They took all of the work out of selling our old home and buying our new home. They did their homework and followed up on all leads. Kevin was very knowledgeable, friendly, great with our kids and quick to respond and turn around requests. We couldn't have asked for a better realty team.
Ben E.
Extremely helpful, friendly, and knowledgeable from the start. Both Dave and Kelly were wonderful, and we felt much more comfortable in our decision making with their consistent help and support. They were always available to help us look at properties and offered genuine, thoughtful answers to any questions we had. Even now that the house is purchased, Dave continues to help us with advice and information as new homeowners. I would recommend this group to anyone.
Buck W.
Tim Aberle with Thrive Real Estate Group successfully set up showings of houses we wanted to see on very short notice. He listened to our needs and wants in a house and didn't show us anything outside of our expectations. He was extremely friendly, helpful, and available without being pushy. We put an offer on our house the same day we saw it and he made it happen quick. After we purchased the house, he even went above and beyond providing referrals of qualified contractors for the work we were having done to the house since we were moving from out of state. Tim made the buying and moving process go as smoothly as it could. I highly recommend Tim and Thrive.
Mackenzie B.
In my long extensive search as a first time home buyer for a honest quality realtor i believe i have come across possibly the best. Kevin Nydam and the Thrive real estate group have truly exceeded my expectations. From start to finish it was nothing short of a pleasure to do business Kevin and Rebecca Loesch. I can assure you i will look no further for my future real estate expertise.
Roderick S.
Kevin Shelledy and the Thrive team could not have been better for us! From the initial stages of searching for a new home to the final negotiations, Kevin and his team were just exceptional. Kevin's professionalism shined throughout the entire process. His industry knowledge and experience, combined with his team's skilled expertise, made the very difficult task of buying a home and selling a home as easy as it possibly could be. They truly made us feel like we were their only clients. We are so thankful that we found Kevin and his team and will recommend them to all of our friends and family!

Zach did an amazing job to keep me well informed and comfortable throughout the process. Overall the experience from Zach and Thrive was top notch. When looking for a home in the Denver area in such a fast moving market, I think it's crucial to have a group of true professionals such as Zach and Thrive in your corner. I felt understood with my needs, wants, and expectations, and it ultimately lead to me getting into my amazing home!
Chandler M.
We were living out-of-state, and Tim was recommended to us by an agent/friend after she had researched and interviewed several Denver agents. His knowledge of neighborhoods was very helpful in focusing our condominium search in areas that had the "feel" we were looking for. He was always energetic and prompt whenever we asked for something. His advice on when and how to structure our offer was spot on, and he and his office walked us through the closing process. Additionally, he was able to recommend financing and remodeling sources that worked out very well. I can't think of any area in which he could have done better.
Bill R.
Kevin Nydam was very attentive to details, very responsive to any questions I had for him, and always on the ball regarding deadlines and timely interactions. Kevin and the Thrive team were very helpful in navigating through the sea of confusion and paperwork that is buying a home. Thanks Kevin!
Andrew M.
Jill Horch at Thrive Real Estate is a first-class professional. She served as my buyer's agent on the purchase of a condo in Denver and was very accommodating and attentive. I made an offer, backed out, and then jumped back in. Jill was very helpful and enabled me to pick up the purchase process where I left off instead of having to start over again. She also included a clause in the contract that provided some protection for me when the appraisal came in lower than my offer. She's a friendly and enthusiastic person -- a pleasure to deal with! I highly recommend her. Update: A little more than a year later Jill helped put this condo on the market and find a single-family house in Littleton. She was more sophisticated than the average agent in knowing to market this unit, which is in an historical building. She also went above and beyond the call of duty when it came to helping address objections raised by the inspection. As for the house in Littleton, she was not only patient but enthusiastic in helping me find what she called my "cream puff" house. Overall, I can highly recommend Jill.

We moved to the Denver area from Wyoming and we didn't even know where to begin! Kevin was amazing in helping us maneuver within the real estate market here in the city! After spending a few times with us showing us a variety of homes including 55 plus communities and other planned developments, he had evaluated what we wanted regarding type of home, area, price range, etc. A good realtor is part counselor, salesperson, negotiator and guru and Kevin fits the bill! Kevin's personality is vibrant, caring, funny and very professional. He never gave up on finding us the perfect home even though we were ready to throw in the towel more than once! I can tell you that we made it through the entire process with barely a hiccup ---- all thanks to this guy!!! If you're looking to make a move, large or small, Kevin's your guy!

Tim Aberle of Thrive Real Estate Group helped my husband and I tremendously in finding our first home. We were living in New York City and wanted to purchase a home in the suburbs near Denver. As first-time homebuyers, we found Tim to be extremely knowledgeable and responsive. He would visit any house we were interested in on our behalf, take videos, and share his opinions. He made the intimidating process of buying a house much more manageable. Due to our trust in Tim's expertise, we felt comfortable enough to make an offer on our house without visiting it ourselves first and we absolutely love the house!
Christine C.
Rebecca was amazing to work with! She was patient and showed my husband and I (as well as our families!) any house at all that we wanted to look at. She did research beforehand so she knew the comps and information about each house we were looking at. She had great advice about how much over or  under we should offer and stayed on-top of each detail along the way. We trusted her so much that at the end we signed over Power of Attorney so that if I went into labor should could sign for us to buy the house. We will 100% work with her again should we ever buy or sell in the future.
Abby & Joel D.
I cannot be thankful enough for the amazing experience my wife and I had with Tim Aberle and Thrive. Tim was there for us in every aspect, for every step of our purchasing process. Since this was our first home, we definitely needed a realtor that could give sound advice, have the knowledge of the market, and walk us through everything – from the initial showing of the home to the final signature at closing. Tim did all of this and could not make it easy enough for us. If you are reading this review and are looking for a dependable, honest, and dedicated realtor, please do not look any further. We 100% recommend Tim and Thrive. Thank you Tim for a seamless process this past month! We look forward to sending others your way as well as doing business again in the future – buy or sell!
Nick D.
Jill Horch did a fantastic job of marketing my mothers house! We needed to sell to help fund her assisted living costs and we need to do it fast. With a very strong knowledge of the housing market in Denver and Englewood, she promptly motivated all the working parts that it took to get it up on the market and sold within a week! Only so much can be credited to the hot market as she was able to get the most for the house given it's condition. Thanks Jill, I would highly recommend you to anyone looking to sell their property.
Kit P.
Tim Aberle was recommended to us by Thrive because we asked for someone who was knowledgeable in various Denver neighborhoods, understood the fixer-up process and a strong negotiator. I told them I had no interest in making a friend so don't send us someone "fluffy" to interview. Little did we know we'd be asking ourselves at the end of this process, "Do you think Tim will want to be our friend or will we never see him again?". Tim Aberle was everything we could want in an agent: knowledgeable, responsive, available (thanks Mrs. Aberle!!), detailed and just a great person you want to be around. We had monthly calls 6-months prior to moving to Denver, went to showings same day to make sure we were on top of the competitive market environment, and Tim negotiated down our eventual purchase about $40k under list price (unheard of in this market). After the fact, he put us in contact with various contractors and subcontractors that he works with and trusts on his own investment projects to help us with our hefty home renovation. As an added plus, Thrive's custom home search site is easy to navigate and updates frequently. Tim also utilized their analytics tools in order to pull us fast neighborhood comp and market value estimates within hours of walking us through a tour so we always felt comfortable with our offer price. We would recommend Tim to any of our friends and family looking for an agent. Good luck in your home search!

Top notch! Dave Ness is simply the best in the business. He is knowledgable, sharp, and always has my best interest at heart. His guidance and expertise helped me get my dream house. He is my "go to guy" from now on.
Jeanmarie L.
My husband and I were referred to Dave when we relocated to Colorado. From the moment we met Dave, we felt strongly about working with him. Honestly, we felt we had known him for years though we had just met. He was personable and professional. Dave was consistent and always delivered in a timely manner. It is because of he and Thrive that we found a house that is best suited for our personality and lifestyle. I would highly recommend Dave and Thrive Real Estate. They function as a whole , similar to how a family operates. They work hard, play hard! Which in return only creates a positive culture within the company.... And I can guarantee you will feel it from day one and beyond.
Kristen & Michael B.
This review was long coming. My wife and I were first time home buyers trying to somehow find a home within our budget in this competitive Denver real estate market. We were done paying rent and wanted something small that would fit our family but at the same time didn't want to compromise on the things we wanted so the listings were limited. Zach along with Courtney assisted with the hunt and were very accommodating. I still remember, at that time, houses at our price point were being listed and sold pretty much on the same day, so we had to be quick. The condo that we ended up purchasing was listed at a time when we were visiting another property. Zach was nice enough to quickly schedule a tour of the condo despite the fact that he had to be present somewhere that evening. We liked the condo, put in an offer and got a call from Zach the very next day about our offer acceptance. There were three other offers made and we won! we weren't even expecting this to happen but it did and it all happened in 10 days from the time we met Zach. Thats pretty quick. As first time home buyers there was a lot of learning to do and we felt comfortable with Zach being just a call away. He was friendly, easy to get hold off, and didn't just push on homes that we were not interested in. I know its late but THANK YOU Zach and Courtney and everyone at Thrive who helped find our home.
Jeswanth J.
Wow is all I can say. Zach was patient, supportive, narrowed our search as he learned what we were looking for and delivered for us big time! He was right there to the end and helped us close on our new home in such a supportive way! Can not recommend him more highly! He delivers, and put us first!
Ned B.
Kelly was phenomenal to work with! Right from the first meeting she presented herself as very enthusiastic and motivated to find my wife and I the best possible house for us. She was able to filter out most of the houses that we had no interest in and show us just the things that met our very specific list of desires.

She was always reachable day or night and help us through long evenings and weekends on our seemingly endless search. And once we did find the house we liked she taught us some very interesting negotiation techniques to make our offer one that stood out. Her negotiation skills helped us be competitive on houses we were interested, and wise enough to let go at certain points if it was clear we could not offer what the seller was looking for. After we finally had an offer accepted she walked us through every step moving forward and was in constant communication about what was needed from us and kept everyone on a proper timeline.

Truly the fantastic work we were looking for when searching a for home, and I cannot recommend her expertise higher. Kelly is sure to make your home buying experience fun and as stress free as the process can be.
Dan B.
I contacted Tim from a listing I was interested in and he responded within minutes. We had not sold our home yet so we were not ready to purchase. We stayed in touch over the next 18 months. When our home sold Tim found us the most perfect place in Denver! He knew our priorities and nailed it with the first showing. We had a signed contract within 48 hours and a closing within a month. I would highly recommend Tim and Thrive Real Estate Group. Everyone involved with the process was incredibly responsive, organized and certainly made the transaction a breeze. If you are looking or just need to discuss your real estate needs I would most certainly call Tim Aberle at Thrive Real Estate. Thank you so much Tim for finding our new home!
Janis Von Rueden
I am a true fan of Dave Ness and the Thrive Real Estate Team who listed and helped me sell our beautiful Denver condo. They made sure the property looked great and the listing went to a maximum number of potential buyers. The result was that there were many viewings of the condo. Perhaps, Dave and Thrive’s greatest skill was in the negotiations of the sale. There were some sticky patches. I was impressed by the openness, the fairness, but also the persistence that resulted in a sale price that this seller happily accepted. My husband and I have bought and sold a lot of properties over the years. We presently own ten. Dave Ness and Thrive have been one of the best Real Estate teams I have ever worked with.
Suzanne Hamilton
Dave and the Thrive team are amazing! I met Dave a few days before making an offer with his help, the process was made so simple by his team and this comes from a first time home buyer. Thrive team is extremely professional, and knowledagle. I would recommend Dave and team to anyone looking for a house specially in such a competitive market. Their knowledge and skills will set you apart from any other buyer/seller in the market. I would do it all over again with Thrive in a heart beat!
Santiago O.
My wife and I worked with Dave through the process of buying a home and I am not sure he could have served us better. He responded quickly to our many questions, put us at ease with the myriad of paperwork and he has a great sense of humor! Most of all, there were several times in the process when he would call just to "check in" and see how we were doing. Dave and his team, genuinely care for people and it shows in every single thing they do - down to the smallest detail. If you are wondering who to work with in the busy Denver Market ... call Dave Ness and the Thrive Team!
Michael H.
I have nothing but good things to say about Tim Aberle and Thrive Real Estate. Tim really went the extra mile for me in every way. He knows the process and knows how to negotiate a good deal (even in a very competitive market). He worked around my busy schedule and was available whenever I needed him. He's an authentic guy that really worked to help me find what was best for me. He wasn't just looking for a quick deal to get a commission. The process went so smoothly. I haven't worked with other agents in the city, but based on the experiences of my friends, I'd say Tim helped my process go more smoothly than many of theirs.

We will definitely do business with Jill again and recommended her to EVERYONE!

Our accidental discovery of Thrive Real Estate Agent Tim Aberle changed everything…well, at least a lot. In early 2018 my now-husband and I were anxious to find a Denver home that was more suitable for the two of us and an eventual larger family. We signed up to see a house via Zillow and were fortuitously linked up with Tim. I was hesitant to work with any particular agent given previously underwhelming experiences, but Tim proved to be different. He: • Was incredibly proactive (devising solutions to inspection issues, scheduling appointments without reminders) • Immediately established a customized listing queue based on our specific interests/requirements (in our case, we were heavily focused on homes in good elementary school districts) • Had no interest in selling us on homes or features that were less-than-great (in a few of the homes we visited he even gave us advice on why a particular home may not suit our needs despite us not realizing it yet) • Has extensive knowledge of the neighborhoods and house types throughout the entire Denver area, which saved a lot of time and helped us narrow our search in a way that technology can’t (by looking at the front of a house he could accurately guess the build year, floorplan, and likely finishes, and with renovated houses he could differentiate quality from shoddy workmanship very quickly) • Devised a winning bid strategy for us when we competed to buy our eventual house; the seller’s Agent even complimented him at closing and suggested that Tim’s professional representation was essential in getting the house • Has very helpful knowledge of what goes into home repairs and redesigns (in terms of price, time, and best practices) which we used on many occasions to quickly calculate how much specific changes would likely add to our price tag • Has a very organized administrative support staff that proactively kept us on track with the documentation requirements and deadlines for closing Aside from his professional acumen, Tim is the kind of guy you’d like to have a beer with. Thumbs up for Tim and Thrive Real Estate!
Tori H.
Working with Elizabeth was great! She was always available to answer our questions, schedule showings, and was very knowledgeable and straightforward throughout the entire process which was very much appreciated. I had always heard what a nightmare the home buying process can be, but she made it seem very smooth. I would highly recommend Elizabeth and the Thrive Team!
Erin Monett
Rebecca Loesch of Thrive Real Estate Group was our transaction broker in a rather drawn out and complicated house purchase, and she impressed us with her expertise, patience, and skillfulness in helping us reach a successful outcome. She was quick to respond to phone calls and emails, attentive to deadlines, and extremely helpful in referring us to other competent professionals we needed to complete the purchase. We are thrilled to have worked with her and will not hesitate to recommend her to anyone looking for a real estate professional who can be trusted to do an outstanding job.
Jonathan Quek & Joe Quillin
Tim Aberle of Thrive Real Estate Tim has been an outstanding agent. As a family moving to Colorado from out of state, we relied on Tim for information, advice, and expertise. From the first conversation - before we were even sure we'd be moving to the Denver area - Tim has been helpful and informative, often going out of his way to do so. And, once we began our work in finding a home, we were consistently pleased with our choice in working with Tim. He has been on top of every element of our negotiations and transaction, and has helped us with some tricky situations. Through it all he has showed us warmth, and maintained a friendly and can-do attitude. I am so glad we selected Tim to be our agent and highly recommend him to others!
Candice Clark
The Thrive crew rocks!!! Super happy with my transaction with them. They kept me well informed, exceeded expectations and were a pleasure to work with.
Chris Magnotta
Rebecca Loesch was absolutely awesome in helping us buy our new home. We were from out-of-state and she really helped to reduce the stress of buying a home in a different state. She was so helpful in every step of the process. We highly recommend Rebecca and Thrive Real Estate.
Tammie Merkel
Tim Aberle knew exactly what we wanted. He was knowledgeable, dependable, and flexible. He walked us through the process completely and went above and beyond what we would expect. Thank you Tim for helping us find the right home!
