Testimonials

They are far above the typical group of agents.
Choices are nearly unlimited in selecting a broker/firm. Experiance matters and often things that are difficult to anticipate pop up to ruin deals in the 11th hour.  The DeBakker Group has the experience in the local market to guide a purchase or sale from crafting the offer or generating interest all the way through closing.  They are far above the typical group of agents who merely push papers.

I have the highest regard for Margie and her team
Margie is a true professional in every regard.  Margie was our Realtor both times when we bought our home and then sold our home
Don Mayon
Margie has been the best by far!
We have bought and sold a few homes in different states and Margie has been the best Realtor by far! She was able to sell our first home in Erie within a few days and worked her magic in finding us a new home on a lake in Longmont.  With her expertise and diligence, we were able to close both homes on the same day.  It was truly a stress-free process.  When we are ready to sell, Margie will be the first and only Realtor we will choose.  We highly recommend Margie and her team.

Margie and the DeBakker Group team are spectacular!
Excellent and outstanding service.  I give them the highest possible recommendation.  The DeBakker Group worked for our family on buying our home, and later selling our home after we moved out of state.  I was very pleased with both the buying and selling experience.

Margie was great selling our house. 
She was very knowledgeable about the area, the current market, and gave good, timely advice.  She marketed aggressively, was very communicative, was timely, and was very easy to work with.  Once we got a good solid offer, she worked hard to make everything happen as smooth and successfully as possible.  Thanks Margie!

Andre and his team did an outstanding job helping us find our mountain dream home. 
We could not be happier with our property, and we could never have pulled it off without Andre's help.  This was a complicated deal involving an extremely rural location,  a new septic system, and somewhat sketchy water rights.  To make already complicated matters even worse, the structures were difficult to insure because of extreme forest fire risk at the time, which also made finding a mortgage challenging, even with great credit.  Andre and his team knew all the right people to help us make everything happen quickly, easily, and given the circumstances, relatively hassle-free.  I would absolutely work with Andre again.

I've been working with Margie over the last year, as my realtor, in buying a new condominium. She has been attentive and responsive to questions, reviewing of documents, and attending meetings through the final closing. She is understanding, empathic of personal situations and very knowledgeable. I would highly recommend her!

This was the first time I purchased a house on my own. Margie DeBaaker took me through the process in a very professional manner. My first meeting with her, she explained in detail the process and had written materials that I could peruse on my own time. At each step of the way from finding the house of my dreams to the various steps to actually purchasing the place she was there to advise. I was purchasing a house in Colorado while still living in Chicago. Margie had a good idea of what I was looking for and when she found a place sent me a video so I could get a good idea of the place. I'm living in Colorado now in my new home, thanks to Margie. I would highly recommend Margie and Realty Ventures to anyone looking for a home in this tight market.

Margie DeBakker helped me purchase a home in Longmont, CO a few years ago. She was great to work with - knowledgeable, professional, and caring. I would highly recommend Margie to help you purchase or sell your home. And now that she has has opened an office in Lafayette with RE/MAX Alliance, I bet there are even more ways her real estate business can take care of your needs.

Jenny Marie Hatch
Margie did an amazing job selling our home!
Her photographer was awesome, and she did a ton of open houses for us, which ultimately found us a buyer. Showings were easily coordinated and a breeze for us as sellers. Margie is so nice and super professional!
Corrie Behm
Margie at RE/MAX Alliance was absolutely amazing to work with.
My husband and I were first time home buyers and we were nervous to go through the home buying process but she guided us through seamlessly. We told her exactly what we were looking for and she found our house on the first day we looked. She recommended that we put in an offer and we were under contract within 24 hours. The market was extremely competitive and the home had multiple offers but because of her knowledge and expertise we were able to go under contract extremely quickly. I highly recommend Margie and her team to anyone, especially first time home buyers! They are definitely the best real estate team in the Lafayette area! We will absolutely be using her again for our next home!
Allison Hockstad
Margie was excellent for us.
We were new to the area and she found us exactly what we were looking for. We have since moved out of the area and again she was great. We told her exactly how much we wanted to sell for and we received a full offer the first day on the market. She gave us great insight on sprucing up the house. Her photography crew were impeccable. I would absolutely recommend her to anyone in the area. Her experience and enthusiasm to fit our needs was above any other realtor we've ever had.

Margie is top notch!!
I was going through a divorce of 28 yrs. Needless to say this was my first huge

purchase. My mind was just spinning. She took very good care of me. Asking the sellers questions that I would have never even thought about asking. Not ever putting me under pressure . We all know how this Colorado market is.She made a very stressful situation into a empowering moment for me. She will give a 100% attention and answer any questions big or small. A big thank you to Margie and her team,

Margie is AMAZING!!
She was recommended by a family member and has found/sold quite a few houses for my family. She got us into our place within a month and was there every step of the way to answer our questions as first time home buyers! I highly recommend Margie to anyone searching in the northern Denver area.

A shout out and HUGE thanks to the most awesome realtor!I just wanted to take a moment for a shout out and HUGE thanks to the most awesome realtor and friend, Margie Kalie DeBakker. I don't think it's very often that you can say you actually love your realtor, but as a military family that has to move every 2-3 years it was so nice to feel like someone actually cared about us as much as "making the sale." Margie understands this market so well and made so many clever, savvy decisions for us that I still can't believe how amazing the whole experience was. We were incredibly lucky to meet her 2 years ago when we were searching for a home and even luckier that she was there for us to sell that same home. She managed to set us up in the best possible position for a sale and negotiated an amazing offer that I know several friends in the same area were not able to do with their own home sales. And she is legitimately a sweetheart to boot! Just can't recommend her enough, honestly. Thanks again Margie!
