Thank you so much for your amazing expertise and guidance

Darrin Harris Frisby, Thank you so much for your amazing expertise and guidance. Without your help the dream home I didn’t even know I was looking for but happened upon would not be under contract with me, no doubt.

You gave the encouragement and that gave me the green light, cause I trust you.

We spoke probably 5 years ago for the first time about a home over a beer and burger. 4 years ago I moved into a Mobile home (which is dope now imo) and consulted you on that idea.

Flash forward to last week where you put the team together to make this happen for me. I am extrememly greatful for your knowledge, ligting a fire under my ass when I needed it, and making this happen.

You are a gem to this market for both buyers and sellers.

I cannot recommend Darrin as a realtor enough

I cannot recommend Darrin as a realtor enough. He supported my family for over a year to find our perfect home. Darrin helped us discern the best property for our family within our price range. When we were to initially see the property we ended up buying, the sellers last minute decided they were not taking anymore showings. Instead of giving up, Darrin worked his magic and convinced them for ONE more showing and it turned out to be our HOME! I am forever grateful for Darrin for his dedication, reliability, and patience as we found the perfect fit for our family. It only took me a year to commit to buying and Darrin had the patience of a saint. I truly felt his support throughout the entire process. He is hands down the best realtor in the area and I cannot recommend him enough.

Erica Chillin

At the time I was very impressed with his professionalism, knowledge and demeanor

I first met Darrin while he was representing the seller of the property we purchased. At the time I was very impressed with his professionalism, knowledge and demeanor. Darrin has an intricate knowledge of real estate, details of the property with which he is involved, and the needs of the client he represents.

This is why we were excited to later have the opportunity of working with Darrin as a client upon the sale of our home. It was a delightful experience working with someone who truly cares about others, and especially his clients. His photography of the property was phenomenal, and I’m certain they contributed to the successful sale of our property and the achievement of our financial goals.

I can say without reservation I would highly recommend Darrin to anyone seeking a realtor. Sincerely,

Alani Selvey

I consider Darrin to be an important part of my real estate goals

Darrin and I clicked from the moment we met. Darrin has one of those “universal” characters where he can click with just about anyone. I attribute that to his empathy, experience and knowledge. We’ve been friends ever since (2017). Darrin keeps in touch with me about what’s going on in the real estate market when it applies to what he knows about me and my interests – and doesn’t barrage me with too much information. I consider Darrin to be an important part of my real estate goals and would not hesitate to engage him when I am looking to buy or sell. Bonus: Darrin is an excellent photographer and is part of my success as a short term rental owner. Those pictures Darrin took are all people have to make their decision to book – and book they do!

He helped us find places we loved at prices that seemed fair and felt right

We bought two homes with Darrin and sold one, all within six years. He helped us find places we loved at prices that seemed fair and felt right. When we were looking to buy, he showed us scores of properties all over Boulder County, and he never seemed to tire of it. He had always done his homework and always had a plan. We learned a lot from him, and managed to have some fun. He’s smart, savvy and easy to recommend.

Darrin is the kind of person you can depend on putting 110 percent for his clients

I have known Darrin for nearly 6 years. He was recommended to me by my agent in Dallas TX as one of the most dedicated agents in the Boulder area where I planned to retire. He set up a profile for me and over a four-year period maintained contact with me with suggestions to purchase. He spent ample time on my trips to Boulder and helped me with making a decision. He finally found my dream mountain home in Nederland in June 2018. Darrin is the kind of person you can depend on putting 110 percent for his clients. If you want results, he is your choice.

Darrin has handled three of our transactions

We like buying residential homes!…….. and we seem to do it often.  Darrin has handled three of our transactions.  He is great at searching out the “possibles” that match our wants.  He listens, does his searches, doesn’t even bother showing us properties that match only 90% of our wants which we like.  We dislike wasting our time looking at properties that are not on our wish list.  We’ve never needed financing, but he knows the system and if needed?, he’s connected………….. and he managed to find us the buyer for one of our multi-mil properties where other realtors failed.  Bravo Darrin!

I was so lucky to have Darrin as an advocate for me when I was building my first home

I was so lucky to have Darrin as an advocate for me when I was building my first home. He worked extremely hard by making sure the builder was staying up to date on their ‘to-do’s’, getting me in touch with a great mortgage lender and overall just made sure that I didn’t have to be concerned about anything in the process. I would definitely look to him for all your home buying needs.

I would not ever hesitate to work with Mr. Frisby again

I feel myself spoiled, when it comes to evaluating my many needs I have of a competent Realtor; Darrin has raised the bar for me.
Mr. Darrin Harris Frisby is one of the most competent, accurate and pedantic workers, whom I’ve ever had the pleasure to work with, in the Real Estate industry. I felt very safe during our multiple deals together; we’ve purchased numerous properties together, and I would not ever hesitate to work with Mr. Frisby again. He is, and will always be, my first choice, when deciding who I want to represent me and my interests in the purchase or sale of any real estate asset.

Nadia Artman

He impressed us by staying on top of all the details and working diligently until it was closed

Darrin helped us buy a lot near Boulder with owner financing and it required a lot of leg work and creative negotiation. He impressed us by staying on top of all the details and working diligently until it was closed. We wouldn’t hesitate to work with him in the future.

John & Trish Jordan

Working with Darrin to buy our first home was a complete success!

Working with Darrin to buy our first home was a complete success! It was a complicated buying process of a HUD home, and he helped us navigate every aspect. Never once did it feel like we were waiting on him to take the next step. He is kind, thoughtful, speedy and completely competent. As a home owner he has continued to be a great resource!
I would without a doubt work with Darrin again weather we were selling or buying aging.

Dakota Soifer

He was kind and courteous and the closing was flawless

Darrin Harris Frisby did a wonderful and diligent job of finding us our present beautiful home in Longmont.  He was always there to answer any questions. He was kind and courteous and the closing was flawless.

Dan and Pam Frisby

I thoroughly enjoyed working with Darrin

I thoroughly enjoyed working with Darrin. I was looking for remote acreage in the Boulder county mountains and Darrin did not disappoint. He has a very good knowledge of the area. The two things that impressed me the most were his attention to all the details, that I never would have thought of, and the fact that I never felt any pressure to make a decision. This was my forth home purchase in Boulder county and Darrin Harris was by far the best realtor I have used. If I ever decide to relocate I will be calling Darrin.

Dan Thompson

Darrin was a huge help in finding my first home

Darrin was a huge help in finding my first home and toured me around Denver for well over a year before we finally found my home. He has always been super helpful answering my questions as a first time home buyer and was great to have him on my team in such a competitive market. I ended up landing on a FSBO home and remodeling it, but Darrin was by my side every step of the way and now I’ve got a great property in Denver!
