    • Garland and his associate Angela did a terrific job helping us to virtually view, make an offer on, and close the deal on our new condo in Highlands Ranch. Garland is professional and particularly good with the many details that can make a transaction go smoothly. Highly recommend!

    • With my brothers passing in late January, I was asked by my family to serve as his estates personal representative. Of the numerous things to settle the estate, selling his house was one of the biggest tasks to tackle. I contacted our long-time realtor and family friend here in Richmond VA to see if he could point us to someone who could help us out. I say this with all sincerity and heartfelt appreciation that his referral of J Garland Thurman and his team at Kentwood Real Estate was truly a blessing. I don't think I could have found a better team of knowledgable, caring, and hard-working real estate professionals. Their attention to detail, constant communication, caring attitude made my task of selling the house virtually effortless. Garland and his outstanding assistant Angela helped me navigate and coordinate numerous tasks to prepare to sell - it was as if they were right next door to lead me through the steps and ultimately found the best deal possible for my brothers estate. I cannot thank them enough for their personal connection in a difficult time while they flawlessly executed their professional duties. Their dedication to serve their clients is top-shelf and second to none. I cannot find the proper adjectives to add to my recommendation of Garland, Angela, and the entire team at Kentwood. Simply the best I have encountered.

    • I have known Garland Thurman for nearly 10 years and view him as the ultimate professional in all he does, both personally and professionally. Garland's Real Estate expertise is second to none. He will do a great job for you selling or buying a home. My wife and I listed our home with Garland and had already purchased another home that was under construction. Timing was a BIG Deal for us and we didn't want to have to move twice. Garland was able to find a buyer at the price we wanted to sell at....AND coordinate the timing that worked for both buyer and seller. THANK YOU Garland and you have our HIGHEST RECOMMENDATION !

    • Garland has been with me for my three buying/selling experiences in Denver. He is thorough, efficient, calm and supportive. I fully recommend him. And, his assistant, Michael Anne, is invaluable.Great experience!

      - Jennifer Titus
    • Garland had the professional expertise needed to get the job done - that of selling my house in a timely manner. As important, from my perspective, he had the patience to work with me, answer my many questions, encourage me to hang in there and let the process develop. And develop it did, in a shorter time than I expected. The closing was painless, as he had talked me through it beforehand.I have recommended him to friends, and they are very pleased.

    • I found Garland to be very well informed on the vast the array of details it takes to find a house to call home. He was quick to respond to any question or inquiry we may have had. The group of properties he found for us to view followed our needs and wants. The knowledge and experience he has proved to be a great asset to my wife and I as we moved along through the process of home buying. I have recomended Garland and his company to several people since I have met him.

    • I am from California and came looking for a home in July over the 4th holiday. He was referred to me by my agent that sold my home in California. He showed me around the houses I had found on the internet. Also he asked my what i was looking for and from the description of what i wanted in a home/land he suggested area's that i had not consider. His knowledge of the real estate in the area was extensive. The home I purchased was not on my list though i had looked in the area and was not impressed with the houses I found. He found the home and it turned out to be the best one. We started the process (I was in California) and he had all the inspectors and people needed to get the job done. It was not easy but he always was available day or night and was helpful explaining the difference between a Califorina and a Colorado escrow. He seemed to always want me to be satisfied with my purchase and not pressure me into buying something i did not want.

    • We had the providence to have Garland for our realtor when we moved to the Denver area in 1988. He showed us only what we wanted to see, giving us great advice about each house. We were unfamiliar with housing nuances in the Denver area, and Garland was a great help in teaching us the ropes. Because of his very professional and helpful services, we again called upon him when it was time to sell our house and move in late 2012. Again, Garland was very helpful, researching very accurate comparisons and advice on staging the house, and we came up with I believe was a very fair price for the listing. The house sold in one day. The closing process had its challenges due to the buyer's financing experiencing problems, and they had to withdraw the offer. So again, back on the market, and it sold again in one day, this time $1,000 over asking price. A have to give Garland's assistant, Angie, a lot of credit. She was always quick to research and respond to our questions and needs. Many thanks to both Garland Thurman and Angie Willis.

    • Garland was Amazing to work with. He was really working to get us what we wanted, the area and price range. The area we wanted is in high demand and after only hours of the home being posted, he was able to get us to look at it and we made our offer. He is very knowledgable and trusted him completely in his recommendations.

    • arland came highly recommended to us and his services proved to be beyond our expectations. As new prospective residents to Colorado, he led us through the entire process of home search and contract negotiations to closing with the ease of a seasoned professional. Highly personable, honest and caring, he was always available to take our calls, and connected us with the best professionals for advice regarding home inspection. We were fortunate to have had the benefit of the scope of his professional expertise. Garland is a true gentleman.

    • Garland listed our home in Parker at a price higher than we anticipated after his thorough research of the market. His professionalism and communication is fantastic.Our home sold in approximately 3 weeks which worked perfectly for us. What really worked extremely well for us is the buyer fit our needs perfectly from a timing perspective. We were having a new home built and wanted to make just one move instead of two. Garland worked with the other Realtor representing the buyers and everything worked well for all parties. Thanks Garland for all that you did to make this transaction go smoothly!

    • Garland was excellent from start to finish and even after the deal was done. As a first time home buyer, I was apprehensive about the whole home buying process but Garland guided me through the process and offered detailed explanation of various topics and was always giving me a heads up on things I may have not even thought about. We could not have had a better experience and are so glad that we chose Garland.

      - rpalkoner Bought a Single Family home in 2016 in Highlands Ranch, CO.
    • Garland came highly recommended by a family friend and acted as our buyer's agent in the purchase of our home. As first-time home buyers from out of state, my wife and I were initially worried about everything which could go wrong, but ultimately everything went smoothly (in no small way due to Garland's expertise) and we managed to find what we were looking for at a fair price and within our budget. Garland facilitated and explained the entire process, drove us to multiple listings in different areas, addressed all of our concerns, carefully prepared and read documents, and kept us informed. We would be happy to work with Garland again in the future, and also recommend him to friends and family.

      - cherylandcraig holland Sold a Single Family home in 2017 in Englewood, CO.
    • Garland came highly recommended through a family member. As first time home buyers, my husband and I were clueless and anxious at the beginning of the process but working with Garland eased our worries. He met with us before we started the process so we would know what to expect and how to get our finances in order. Once we were ready, he was very prepared and took a lot of time to walk through houses and neighborhoods with us. His expertise helped us land the home we wanted! We were one of several offers and not the highest but he had a great relationship with the seller's agent and advocated for us. Thank you for everything Garland, it's been a great year in home, in an amazing neighborhood and we could not have done it without you!
