    Honest, professional, and straight forward

    Rick from Arvada, CO

    I could not be more pleased with Frank Duran as the listing agent for our Townhome. I have known and worked with Frank several time over the last 20 years and have never been disappointed. His professionalism and knowledge of the real estate market is 2nd to none. Everything he explained and said would happen pretty much did. He was very responsive to any calls or emails. I would use Frank again and highly recommend him for anyone looking for an honest, professional and straight forward realtor.

    Always Recommend!

    Janet from Arvada, CO

    I was extremely satisfied throughout the process of this transaction knowing that Frank and his team always had us as the sellers in the best place. Frank always kept us informed as to any changes, updates, etc. Being able to totally trust your realtor is extremely important from the beginning of the listing to the finish. Knowing his expert knowledge of the market will not put your home in a price range that is not the best. This is the 4th transaction for me personally and always recommend Frank to anyone who expresses that they might be thinking of listing their home.

    Highly Recommend!

    Bob Hanson from N/A

    In the last year Frank has sold three rental properties for me. All three properties were sold in a short period of time and for list price or higher. Frank is a very experienced Realtor and his market knowledge and follow up on all details from start to finish are exceptional. I would highly recommend Frank and his team to anyone looking for the best.

    Dear Marcie,
    Thank you for making the closing of my condo on Ammons St so
    convenient and efficient. Thanks to my good friend Frank, who did a wonderful job of selling my condo and was so kind and helpful at a time that was very sad and difficult. I can assure you and Frank that I will always recommend Frank when anyone is looking for a realtor.
    Once again thank you again. P.S. Frank doesn't sell strictly to friends;he makes friends from his sales!

    Don't hesitate to call Frank

    Scott and Christine Souder * from Aurora, CO

    I think any time a person enters into the buying and selling of a property they just want to know they are represented well. Frank goes well beyond that. Frank was the best ever at communicating with us all the time. He returns calls immediately. He calls just to see how you are doing quite often. It is a very good feeling to have the feeling that you are completely covered in the process. I am not sure if Frank sleeps honestly. We appreciated everything from start to finish with selling our home. We (like most others i'm sure) thought "man the fees add up and seem like". Well, they do indeed add up but Frank was incredibly fair and at the end we had more of an opinion that Frank was a bargain! If we were to buy or sell in the Colorado market again we would not hesitate to call Frank period!

    Frank is the best!

    Maria Miller from Littleton, CO

    I signed up with Frank regarding the sale of my home because when I met with him I felt comfortable as soon as he sat at the dining room table. Frank listed the house on a Thursday night and by the following Monday it was sold for over $13,000 over the list price, Frank answered all of my questions personally and followed through with any concerns I had with the sale of the home that I lived in for over 24 years. Because of his character, honestly, and commitment. I would recommend Frank to anyone regarding their real estate needs. I have made a new friend.

    Benjamin & Christine from Denver, CO

    We can't say enough about Frank Duran and his team! During the entire process Frank was always there to answer any question and goes the extra effort in every way to sell your property. Frank had an excellent rate, knows exactly what he is talking about, and took much of the stress away from selling our home! My wife and I highly encourage anyone selling a home to give him a call! You won't be disappointed!

    John from Aurora, CO

    Hi Frank,
    I just wanted to let you know how impressed we were with you and how the entire process went from start to finish selling my daughters townhouse. You are very knowledgeable, work hard, very good at keeping in contact with us and also answering any questions that we had. It could not have went any smoother. It sold fast and at an awesome price.

    Thank you again Frank, we will not go anywhere else when we need to buy or sell again.

    Frank brought in the buyer for my home himself!!

    The Farbers from Denver, CO

    Frank and his team AMAZED my husband and I with their customer service, quick responses to our concerns and their take action attitude. When my husband and I found out we would have to move to Chicago in 2.5 weeks and live in another state while selling our house, we about had a heart attack. Luckily for us, Frank made the entire process so easy and smooth that after moving out of the house, my husband and myself almost forgot that we were selling our house because it was so painless. We have had terrible experiences with other realtors and brokers but, working with Frank and his team made selling our house a breeze which is what we needed with moving to a new state with a 2-year-old as well. He came in with knowledgeable price points and tips, always offered us referrals and ensured that we got the best deal we could and we actually ended up selling our house for $12,000 more than we planned thanks to Frank's strategic selling!

    Honestly, I'm kind of bummed that we live in Chicago now and can't have Frank out here with us for the purchase of our next home. Him and his team truly have the clients interest at heart with EVERYTHING. Thank you SO much for everything Frank, you have no idea how much this meant to my family to have been able to work with you and your team, you guys are a blessing!

    Thank You,
    The Farbers

    Over the last couple of years it has been a pleasure to get to know Frank and work with him on this short sale. I have great respect for Frank. Over this period of time I have watched Frank go above and beyond for us with his dedication, integrity, and professionalism. He is a hardworking, efficient and now a dependable friend, that I would highly recommend to anyone in need of his services. Thank you so much Frank for all you have done, hope to keep in touch with you in the future. God's blessings to you and your family.

    Joanne from Longmont, CO

    Hi Frank, Dave, Scott and I can't thank you enough for all the work and effort you put into helping Mom sell her house. This was a very traumatic move for her without having her partner of 64 years at her side to help her with every decision. Dad would be proud of her. However with your help and constant encouragement and understanding she did it. Scott and Steph can't say enough wonderful things about you and now I know why. We hope that Mom and Cindy will be settled in a beautiful home that the two of them can manage together and Mom will be happy and safe there for her remaining years. A huge thank you to you and your staff. We truly appreciate every minute of your time!!

    Frank and his team sold our house the first weekend it was listed. He recommended a price to sell and we were very pleased with the selling price. He has many avenues to advertise homes to get the most exposure to buyers. Frank always answered my calls personally. Returned calls with answers to my questions promptly when we needed more information from another party. Frank and his staff are extremely professional and always put their clients first. We highly recommend him and his team.

    The best realtor I have ever met.

    Francine from Morrison, Colorado

    If anyone believes in Angels from God, I can tell you Frank Duran is my special angel. I would like to share my story with you. I own a house in Morrison, Co. I have been out of work for a year and finally got a good job offer in Florida so we decided to sell our house.

    We originally had another agent that did nothing for us. My husband finally found Frank online under Top Colorado Agents. And boy is he ever. Frank Duran is one of the finest Christian man I have ever met. I consider him my brother in Christ and will never forget him. He is not a realtor that just puts a sign in your front lawn. He always follows up with you every day and encourages you. He is a man of his word and probably the best realtor I have ever met.

    Selling my house was not an easy task as it sits on the corner of a major intersection. Whenever I got discouraged he always quoted scripture to me which made me at peace. One night he prayed over the phone with me to get the house sold and the next morning we had a contract on it.

    I cannot say enough about Frank, if you want a honest sincere man for a realtor you need to use Frank Duran.

    God Bless you Frank Duran.

    Frank will be the only real estate agent I use.

    K.D. from Denver, Colorado

    Frank Duran and his team were extremely helpful in the short sale of my condominium. When I made the decision to short sell I started working with an agent that came highly recommended. When that agent "no called, no showed" twice I knew I needed to find another agent. I found Frank highly recommended online and gave him a call. Immediately he took our property and got it listed. Every step of the way Frank was communicating with me about the process. Every time I had a question he answered it thoroughly and patiently. This process took over 6 months and never once did I get the impression that my business was any less important than anything else Frank was handling. Due to this experience Frank will be the only real estate in the future. I am in the sales business and the service I received from Frank and his team is some of the best customer service I have ever experienced.

    Jim & Pam S. from Commerce City, CO.

    I want to thank Frank Duran for all his hard work on selling our home. He was very professional and on top of the sale of the home. He was always keeping us updated on progress and if we had any questions. He made sure all those buyers that looked at the property were qualified to purchase our house. It was a great experience working with him. My self and Pam were very pleased we had him as our agent on this sale. I will use him again if in the future we need to sell or buy a home, I will also send anyone who is looking for a Real Estate profession to sell or help them buy a home.

    His follow up on everything was awesome, I had listed my rental property a year prior with no offers. I listed the property with Frank and had a full price offer at a much higher list price in one week. We closed 45 days later with no issues thanks to Frank and his team staying on top of everything.

    Dedication to excellence.

    John P. from Lakewood, CO

    9-25-14 When My Father passed, my siblings and I were not sure how to proceed with the sale of His home. I had heard many good things about Frank and His dedication to excellence, as well as His compassion. I called Him , we met and I expressed our wishes to Him along with our Religious beliefs, of which He showed us the utmost respect and understanding through the whole process. The sale had to be postponed for over a year and Frank was helpful to us the whole time. It was a tough year first my brother became ill , then I had a near fatal heart attack, during my re-cooperation and months of rehab, my brother passed due to complications from the treatments for His illness. During this entire process, Frank became more of a friend than a service provider.

    When the turmoil had passed and I was ready to proceed Frank and His team were more than helpful, and skillfully guided and assisted me through the entire process, the house was listed , had several contracts within 4 days, and we accepted a FULL price CASH offer that closed, without a hitch in three weeks.

    We now are able to get on with settling my fathers estate, and have several new friends in the process.

    I can not say enough about the integrity, knowledge and skillful execution, of the team that Frank has put together and can not recommend them highly enough.

    Thanks Frank, Mike and Marcie

    "To anyone considering selling a property "

    Mike and Lisa Stanford from Littleton, CO

    Do yourself a HUGE favor - engage Frank Duran and Team Duran.
    Frank, Michael Palmer, Marcie Wilson and Josh Droval. - They will take care of you, I promise.

    You'll have questions - on the seller's agreement, what is the best price to sell, the inspection process, offers/counteroffer, contract dates, appraisal, and closing. Ask away, all will be answered and explained. Josh captured such a beautiful virtual tour of the property. Michael reassured us about the current state of real estate in our area and considerations for dealing with a rental property. Marcie handled the transaction, scheduling dates and follow-up with us on the proceedings. Frank was in constant contact, easily accessible, responsive, and involved in every step. They are a seasoned and seamless team. It is no surprise that Frank Duran is in the national REMAX Hall of Fame.

    Our particular situation was this: A townhouse in a nice HOA community that was a rental property. We wanted to test the market, but who to select to represent our interests? I am not easily won over and have seen some poorly executed contracts and agreements in my line of work. Frank Duran was Johnny on the spot from the very first phone call. He addressed all of my concerns. Our selling price was on the money (pardon the pun)! Not the lowest and not the highest in the area especially for a townhouse that needed a just little TLC after the current tenant moved out. We had an offer for the asking price in less the 48 hours. There was an issue with the inspection and the offer was withdrawn. Frank was not worried. Team Duran was right back at it.

    Shortly thereafter, within 2 days - we had three more offers! Did I mention Frank will negotiate for you? He knows what works. We accepted an offer that was $7,100 above asking price.

    You can trust Team Duran to take care of all the details and any unexpected issues!

    Thanks so much for everything,"

    Professional conduct and constant communications.

    Thanks, Roger and Patricia from Denver, CO

    My wife and I owned a rental duplex in Denver that was in very poor condition at best. We had grave concerns with the sale of this property and how much we were going to have to come ​with ​to closing. Frank took on this situation and we worked together to get the deal completed on the sale. Frank was able to negotiate a sale with no extra conditions even after an inspection by a structural engineer report on the conditions of the units and foundation. We were very impressed and appreciate Frank\'s professional conduct and constant communications thru the whole process. We highly recommend Frank to anyone with their real estate needs, either buying or selling.

    We were fortunate to be able to work with Frank Duran and his team this summer with selling our Boulder townhouse property. Before listing, Frank sent in and paid for a cleaning crew to prepare the house for showings. Not an easy task with renters! Long story short, within a few days we had two contracts! They must have been working hard behind the scenes to get this done. We appreciate all their efforts, will be recommending them to friends and family and look forward to working with Frank & his team in the future!

    Working with Frank Duran was an absolutely amazing

    Wade F. from Thornton, CO

    Working with Frank Duran was an absolutely amazing experience. Frank is clearly very passionate about what he does, and about helping people. He went way above and beyond what we expected, and went out of his way to make sure that everything went perfectly. Due to issues with the banks, our transaction took much longer than initially anticipated, but Frank stayed on top of it until the very end, and didn't let anything slip through the cracks. The way Frank negotiated with the banks for us, was simply miraculous. I don't impress easily but Frank's tenacity, his passion for what he does, and his negotiating skills have left a long lasting impression on me. I can't express how thankful I am that I chose to work with Frank. I will definitely be using him again in the future.

    FAR EXCEEDED my expectations!!

    Gary B. from from Littleton, CO

    Working with Frank Duran has been just an absolute wonderful experience!! Working with Frank has been far better than I could have ever expected with any realtor. I believe a person is only as good as their word. This means a lot to me. I interviewed a total of 3 realtors for the job of selling my home. After I interviewed Frank I decided to go with him on the spot. The other two agents I interviewed both suggested a lower price. One of the agents offered to buy my home if they could not sell it. However, Frank didn't offer me any "puffery". He did what he said he would do, and then FAR EXCEEDED my expectations!!! Frank kept his word and was always there for me when I needed him the most. In fact, Frank sold my home for $31,600 more than the other agent suggested he could sell my home for. He assured me that he has 20 years of proven experience and it showed in his work! Frank had a very detailed marketing and negotiating plan to sell my home for the most money possible. Frank has earned my trust. I have complete trust in Frank Duran.

    Frank sold our home in 72 hours for full price $449,900!!
    I am writing this email to inform you of the wonderful experience my husband and I had selling our home. No matter the reason selling a home can generate a variety of emotions; stress, fear, sadness, excitement and so on. These emotions are cause by engaging in a major life change and the fear of the unknown. Our realtor Frank Duran helped to limit these emotions by keeping us informed of everything that was happening with our home and what to expect from the next step in the process. Our home went on the market on a Friday and by Monday morning we hit a record in views of our virtual tour, (45,024 virtual tour views to be EXACT) and had several offers. With Frank's guidance we accepted a full price offer. Frank continued to communicate and guide us through the entire selling process, including accompanying us to closing. Frank went above and beyond all our expectations and truly made our difficult situation a positive experience. I would (and have) recommend Frank Duran to anyone thinking about buying or selling their home.

    Hi Mr. Martino

    Stefan from Littleton, CO

    I am writing you to provide a synopsis of my experience and total expertise offered by Frank Duran. My sister, brother and I, were the beneficiaries of my father's home. There were the legal, estate-related issues involved. Frank was of critical assistance in helping us through the difficult process of listing, marketing, and sale of the property. He remained in continuous contact, in addition to proving superior negotiation skills. At the same time. Frank remained quite sensitive to the collective emotional state of the family. In addition, he looked out for our interest in the property. Although the house lies in a middle class neighborhood, was in need of some repair and rehab, Frank devoted the same attention as it were in Cherry Hills, not Walnut Hills. The gist, Tom, is that Frank did not blink, secured our reservation, asking price, and after several "amend-extend," provisions, was able to procure our minimum asking price. Remain highly impressed with whom you suggested for my real estate. Cannot say enough about how I feel about Frank, and his devotion to clients. Obama should appoint him to the U. N.

    Frank saved us thousands!!!

    Dave & E.J P. from Thornton, Colorado

    11-26-13. We just closed on our home this morning. Frank Duran sold another home for us! This is the 8th time we have used Frank in the last 17 years. The story is ALWAYS the same. He ALWAYS sells our home for FULL price or ABOVE FULL price, and he ALWAYS negotiates a very good price for the home we purchase. Today's closing was no different. The buyers "low balled" us by several thousand dollars. Frank utilized his AMAZING negotiation skills on our behalf, got our home sold $4,000 OVER the asking price!!! Not only that...He negotiated on the home we are purchasing. Frank saved us $9,000 Combined. On both transactions he saved us $13,000!!! I'm guessing Frank has saved us around $50,000 over the past 8 transactions. All the good things you hear about Frank Duran may sound too good to be true at first. However, once you meet him, it becomes obvious why he comes so highly recommended. Frank truly cares about his clients. He works on your behalf with passion and such amazing drive! I don't think this guy ever sleeps!! He is simply the BEST!!

    Just sold our home and bought another home with Frank Duran - We have known Frank Duran for about 10 years. He came into our life through a phone call after the contract on our first home had expired because the previous agent we had did not sell our home. Frank was very enthusiastic and ensured my husband and I that he would have the house sold quickly. We could tell from the start that he was a different type of realtor. He was not afraid to let us know exactly what we needed to do to get our home ready to sell. He returned phone calls promptly, and always made sure we were making the most informed decision we could. We have been working with Frank ever since. We love his dedication, knowledge of real estate, work ethic and drive to do the right/Christian thing. He has sold our homes as well as my Mom's home, and we would never think of hiring anyone else. Even when we were just thinking about selling our home, he did not hesitate to come out and do a complete home analysis for us. He has always been truthful and honest with us about our home value and market trends. He really knows what is going on. I believe that he has a drive that propels him to be the best realtor he can be, and to really KNOW the business. I just don't think it is in his soul to do less. Frank is not just a listing agent; he is the family friend that you can rely on for real estate expertise and advice!

    We were facing foreclosure.

    Vanessa C. from Denver, CO

    We were facing foreclosure and had nowhere to turn for help. Frank stepped and and helped us proceed with a short sale instead of a foreclosure. This is something we wouldn't have been able to do alone. We had dealt with the bank multiple times and had gone nowhere. We thought for sure we wouldn't be able to do anything but foreclose. Frank had our house sold in just a few months. Even with our schedule for showings being very difficult he had all the steps in place for a quick sale. He worked so hard to get this process done quickly and as painless as possible. During this process the bank had made a mistake and didn't extend our sale date, even though we were under contract with a buyer. We had less than 24 hours to get this resolved or we would be out on the street. Frank hustled like nothing I have ever seen before! He got the matter taken care of in less than 24 hours. He must have spent hours on the phone to get this resolved. When our sale was complete he assisted us in finding a new place to live and helped us work out all the details as quickly as possible. I am so grateful for Frank and his team. We would be without a home if it were not for him and his Great Service. He is a FIVE STAR PROFESSIONAL Customer Service Award Winner but in my eyes he is a Ten star award winner. He worked so hard to make things work out for us. For that we are forever thankful. Frank and his team are go getters and they will work their hardest to get you what you want, and need!

    "I highly recommend Frank Duran and his real estate services. He is clearly honest, straightforward, hard working and extremely competent and knowledgeable in providing all the necessary services to his clients. His professionalism was outstanding and he worked his magic in negotiating the best deal for me. My transaction was very complicated including the fact I was out of state in Washington and he easily guided me through all the necessary electronic paperwork to complete the sale. He made the process seem simple and easy for me to understand. I highly recommend Frank Duran and would not hesitate to utilize his services should I return to Colorado. Thanks Frank for helping me put the past behind me! "

    Best experience I've ever had.

    Paula G. from N/A

    June 28th 2013

    Good afternoon,

    I wanted to send you a note regarding my experience/story with Frank Duran. I've used your referral list a few times, and though Frank contacted me, this is the best experience I've had, and want you to know how incredibly remarkable he is... your best referral yet!!!

    I'll try to keep this as short as possible, I know how busy you are; however, it's a story with meaning and should be told..

    I am a single mom that was impacted by the economy a few years ago, losing my job after 10 years, and have a medical condition on top of it. After almost a year of unemployment, I found a job, but took a substantial pay cut. I tried twice with Bank of America to save my home, with no luck. Although that was always my ultimate goal, it obviously wasn't going to be a possibility. Had to file Bankruptcy for this as well as the stacked up medical bills; my home was in the beginning stage of foreclosure.

    Frank had contacted me regarding a program by BOA that will help sell my home and keep a foreclosure off my credit. (you can imagine how bad my credit already is trying to survive and raise to boys financially on my own, anything was an option, although hesitant, I told him it was too good to be true, this stuff just doesn't happen to me!!) The short-sale program was started and after 4 days, had numerous offers. Still a few weeks out from closing, BOA notified us that they are servicing out my loan at the end of June, which would terminate this program they offered, giving us just a little over a week to finish the sale. Had to close by 6/27/13. He went to the top to fight my battle - questions their morals really, on how they can offer a program to people who need help, and just pull it away?

    Frank received approval from BOA to close just 3 days prior to our deadline, then the hurdles began. ( I told Frank it was too good to be true! :)) HOA stated I owed them more than entitled to, as they were included in my bankruptcy payment plan - Frank negotiated with HOA on an amount that would come out of my incentive; which was totally fine! Then the water that was shut off a year ago, needed to be paid before closing (which I didn't think I owed, as I shut if off when I moved out a year ago, not knowing when I'd get kicked out, and had paid the final bill, but it was almost $400 (I believe)) Frank offered to pay this bill.. still brings tears to my eyes...I was ready to give up - he knows my financial struggle and went way above and beyond to help get this done for me... Even with the buyer out of state on vacation, Frank took control of all this, very respectful of my time and knowing my chaotic schedule - he did all this in the two days we had left to get this done. Absolutely AMAZING!!!!

    I would have never thought there was light at the end of my tunnel, but thanks to Frank, there is.. it's only the beginning, but this is such a huge beginning - I don't know if you, or he, will ever understand the way he blessed me... There are times you feel like there is no way out.. but I look at my boys, and I just keep going, praying and doing the best I can. And because of God, and people like Frank, I believe in angels and miracles...

    I'm sure Frank is much more aware of the time and energy he put into making this happen, a lot I know I didn't see, which also shows how honorable he is.. Not many would take the effort to do this.. Something that may only be seen as a job - is an impact to my life, I'll never forget...

    Thank you -

If you need an agent - give him a shout....he's incredible. Thanks again Frank!! :)

    Home going into foreclosure.

    Lizz C. from Denver, CO

    "I had just received notice that my home was going into foreclosure after 4 years of fighting to refinance. I received a call in the evening from Frank Duran stating that he could help me and not have to foreclose. I am the biggest skeptic there is. I told Frank this was a bit to good to be true. He laughed and said he didn't blame me after all the hassles I had been through. He offered numerous references to verify he was who he said he was and another information I wanted. I agreed to meet with Frank and at least see if anything would be possible. This all seemed to be on the up and up so I decided to take Frank's help. There were several ups and downs with the bank and other real-estate issues that I had but Frank never stopped. He worked tirelessly, nights, weekends and everything in between to make sure that we could find a buyer and short sale my home. It was a long road but Frank was the real deal. I was able to short sale my home and not have to foreclose. If your in a foreclosure or about to be Frank Duran is the one you want on your side, he'll get the job done."

    Patrick & Beatrice B. from N/A

    Frank Duran was very instrumental in keeping our home from going into foreclosure. With his tenacity and follow through we were assured every step of the way about what was happening. From the initial paperwork, to securing a buyer, Frank worked closely with us to ensure that we understood each step. When time was long and we were unsure along the way, Frank was quick to give us reassurance and his confidence certainly lead the way. We would recommend Frank and his team. We believe in him... a man of his word, honest, and straight-forward.

    All of the testimonials were right on!

    Heidi from Aurora, CO

    When we made the decision to short-sale our home, we were of course concerned and not sure of how to start - I found so many glowing testimonials about Frank on the Tom Martino website and thought that so many people just could not be wrong, so I called him - and I have to tell you, all of the testimonials were right on! Frank called us the same day, and within 3 days he had visted our home. He was so kind to us and understanding of our situation, and he has the knowledge to back it up. I have worked with several realtors in the past where they just don\'t know all that they should to successfully help you, Frank is not that way at all, he really does know everything - he was there for us every step of the way and the next step at each turn. There were several times of course during the sale that were tough, nervewracking and confusing - but throughout all of it Frank reassured us based on his years of experience and he got things done. There were many times that our mortgage company was difficult for us to work with or to contact at all - Frank was on it and took care of everything each time - it became so I knew that when a question arose, I didn\'t have to worry, I just called Frank and he took care of it for me - that is a huge comfort in this kind of process. He really does work too much :) He will email you or take your call really anytime of day and any day of the week - We had people want to see the home at crazy times - 8am on a Sunday one time - and Frank didn\'t even blink, he stopped by on his way to church and showed the person around. Our home sold much faster than we thought, and my family and I were able to move on with our lives. Frank and our family have a lot in common, so in addition to everything he has done for us as a realtor, we have become good friends in \'real life\' as well.

    Frank made sure I understood everything...

    Amanda from Denver, CO

    I would like to let everyone know how grateful my family and I am for Frank Duran. I bought my grandmothers house about 8 years ago and ended up in a very bad loan like most people. I tried for many years to keep the house because my dad was my co-signer and he is retired and owns his house. I was so afraid that if anything happened he would lose his house. During this time we were trying our hardest to make ends meat with 4 kids. This house felt like an anchor around my neck. I was getting calls a million times a day and letters telling me that they were going to foreclose. I was looking for any way out. Some kind of help! So I went to Tom Martino's web site and that is were I found Frank Duran. I read some of the reviews that people wrote, and from reading I noticed that he had helped so many people with the same problem, and concerning the same mortgage company. So I called and left him a message Frank returned my call within 10 minutes. Frank made me feel like there was a way out of all this mess. I decided right away to have Frank help us with the short sale. Frank did very well in letting us know what a road we were in for and he held nothing back. This really made me feel comfortable because he was not sugar coding anything. During this process though it was a hard road. Frank made sure I understood everything and he was the one that did all of the correspondence with the mortgage company (that I shall not name).That was very important to me because I really did not care to have anything to do with them. This short sale went down to the wire they did not approve until one hour before the foreclosure. I have to thank Frank Duran totally for that! Frank fought the good fight and would not take no for an answer!! He went higher and higher. He called everyone he could until he found the manager that would tell him what he wanted to hear. So to make a long story short... if it was not for all the hard work and caring personality Frank has, I would not have a letter in my hand telling me that all of this mess was over and we made it though. Thank you for everything you did Frank! I can not only breathe easier, but I can sleep better then I have in years. You released me from the anchor that I had around my neck!

    I would like to Thank Frank for being so persistent even when, I did not want to bother any longer with the Mortgage on our home. Was ready to give up and let what ever happens with it, be. The frustration that I had been going thru the past three years with the Bank trying to get a remodification that wasnt happening was more than enough to give up on help from them. When we heard from Frank , I was very unhappy and was very apprehensive that he would be able to make a difference. His persistance was what we needed (even thou we didnt believe he would be able to help). We want to thank you Frank for handling and seeing us thru all of the doubts and being true to your word. We are now free of the home and collections have ceased. We will definitely look forward to your assistance when we are ready to step back into the housing market, because you are true to your word. Thanks again Frank

    "We found Frank on the referrallist"

    Mike K. from Littleton, CO

    My mother-in-law found herself facing insurmountable debt related to her home. As a widow with limited income, she was unable to continue to make payments on her house and unable to refinance her mortgage. The outlook was bleak. Faced with walking away from her upside down home of 12 years, we turned to Frank Duran who we found on Tom Martino's referral list. He presented her with an alternative option of a short sale. I didn't see how a short sale could be approved with a 2nd mortgage and first totalling 40k more than the house was worth, but Frank diligently worked with both lenders to finalize the sale within 90 days of the ordeal. Without Franks experience with short sales and lenders, we would have declared bankruptcy and walked away with more problems.

    Through the entire process Frank kept us abreast of developments, always returning our calls day or night. I was impressed with his passion for his trade and his belief that everyone deserves the right to a happy life. His integrity and true sense of fellowship was always in the forefront of his actions.

    We will always remember what he did for our family during such a turbulent time. Thank you Frank for your honest, tireless and expert effort.

    Frank worked diligently to come to an agreement...

    Jeff and Nicole from Broomfield, CO

    My Family has known Frank Duran for over 4 years and first met him as our son’s soccer coach. We had been looking to move from our house off and on for about 8 years, and had tried several real estate agents with no success, and a lot of frustration. Within a very short time of working with Frank, we found the perfect home for us. During inspection it was determined that the home had several issues including asbestos and radon.
    To further complicate the process, the home was for sale by owner and the gentleman was unwilling to mitigate any of the problems. Frank worked diligently to come to an agreement to where all parties involved were pleased with the outcome.
    As for the house we were selling, Frank sold it in 4 days for $3,000 over asking price. His positive attitude is contagious, and his work ethic is amazing. There is no one better to help you buy or sell a home.

    Frank sold our home in 8 days and for $20,000 more

    Jeffery & Elizabeth from Thornton, CO

    Selling your home can be stressful, but having a true expert on Denver's real estate market makes all the difference. Especially when that expert is your advocate during the sales process. Frank Duran is that expert. We found Frank Duran on Tom Martino's referral list.

    Frank came into the process completely prepared to sell our home. He already completed a comprehensive market review of our neighborhood before our first meeting. After touring our home he had high expectations on sale price and the time frame he could complete the process. This was music to my ears. I was being transferred out of state and a quick sale was a necessity. Frank sold our home in 8 days and for $20,000 more than my price expectations! This was a traditional sale, as we were not under water with our home. Frank said Denver's market was hot and he delivered with a beautiful marketing plan for our home to draw in the buyers.

    Frank is an exceptional Realtor, but he is an even greater person. His integrity was evident from our first meeting and was compassionate to our needs to alleviate as much of the stress as he could. Choosing Frank Duran as your Realtor to sell your home whether you're under water or traditional will be the best decision you can make!

    Jeffrey from Commerce City, CO

    I can not rate Frank Duran high enough. We spent the last two years improving our dream home until my job transferred me out of state. I needed to sell and fast. Frank to the rescue. He came in prepared and energized. He sold our house in 8 days and exceeded my price expectation by $20,000. We were not underwater, and in fact came away very happy after all the sweat equity we put into our home.

    He brings in comprehensive marketing and is a great negotiator. He is also very accessible. I would email him and would receive a quick response or an immediate phone call. He has constant enthusiasm and is truly your advocate in the sale process.

    In any situation, tradition sale, short sale, whatever, Frank is your Realtor. Look no further!!!

    Dear Frank,

    Thank you for your work selling my Mother's condominium.

    Since we paid cash for her home 16 years ago, we had no idea that the home and, in fact, the entire complex was not FHA qualified. How fortunate we are that the H.O.A. had the required documents ready when we needed them! You took it from there ensuring that the documents (300 pages) reached the lender and then by straightening the miscommunications between the lender and the H.O.A. by placing your famous "3 way calling". Thanks for your persistence here. Other people wait for things to happen, but you "MAKE" things happen.
    Also, thank you for taking control of "both sides" of this particular deal when an emergency arose for the "Buyer's Agent". This emergency presented a heartbreaking scenario for her and her family and our sale may have fallen through if you had not intervened by working "both sides". At the closing, it was good to hear the "Buyer's Agent" thank you.

    What a relief to close on such a drawn-out ordeal! Your communications skills and persistence led to a successful closing.

    Your search for a realtor ends here.

    Mark from Englewood, CO

    I first came to this site a little over 3-months ago looking for someone trustworthy to help me and my family through a complex and confusing short-sale. Based on the reviews, I went with Frank but when I tried to call it went straight to voicemail so I left a message and proceeded to the next person on the list since I was in a crunch for time. The next company I came across has a commercial on Tom Martino's show. A receptionist transferred me to the first "available agent." He ran me through a script and scheduled a time to meet a week out. After I got off the phone I received a returning call from Frank who apologized for missing my call and asked me how he could help. I began to tell him that I was going to go with another company and with that he proceeded to tell me why he was the best for the job and that he would give a 110% on my behalf. He was so energetic, passionate, and sincere he convinced me that he would be the best agent. He scheduled to meet us the next day to view our place (not a week out like the other company) and initiated a three-way call with the bank and myself so we knew exactly what was required to make this short sale happen (as well as to see if there might be any other options). He was very knowledgeable, always available regardless of the time, called me right back if he had missed my call, and was even diligent in reminding me what I needed to complete (which was much appreciated) in order to get the short sale approved. In the end, he closed the deal in an unexpected amount of time, got CHASE to do things I never thought possible, and fought for me every step of the way. Our home sold for little to nothing but Frank was working as if the commission was in the six-digit range. We really appreciate the hours, commitment and perseverance that Frank invested in our situation as there were several times that any other agent would have given up. I will be going with Frank Duran for any real estate needs I have in the future as well as recommend him to everyone I know. Thanks, Frank! My family could not be more appreciative for all your hard work!

    Extensive track record with Short Sales

    Joanna K. from N/A

    We needed to sell our house and didn't know what options we had. We found Frank Duran on Tom Martino's referral list. We saw his extensive track record & that he has years of experience in handling short sales. It was clear to us that Frank has a very good success rate. We were familiar with what the process of a short sale really was and we thought that our only option may have been forclosure. However, after talking with Frank, we realized that this was going to be our best option to avoid forclosure and help save our credit as much as we could. We were very confident in his ability and we did get our house sold & saved from foreclosure. Frank made the process easy & unstressful considerindg the circumstances. Frank Duran also gave us peace of mind!

    Frank Duran negotiates with the lenders himself.

    Joann from Lakewood ,Colorado

    I wound up in the unfortunate circumstances of being laid off from a job and then getting another one at a substantially lower rate of pay. I struggled along trying (and failing) to keep up with the house payment that was now almost 90% of my take home pay. I was facing foreclosure on my house when I found Frank Duran on Tom Martino's referral list. Frank met with me and we discussed all my options, and I decided that a short sale was the best way to go. My lender was so very disorganized and unhelpful; paperwork had to be submitted repeatedly, and erroneous information was given to us, but Frank called them on a very nearly daily basis and always kept me in the loop with what was going on. I have heard of short sales taking over a year to complete. I totally believe the reason we closed so soon (in spite of the numerous setbacks) is because Frank negotiates with the lenders himself (many realtors do not), and is very assertive in his dealings with them. I would highly recommend him to anyone wanting to sell a house, whether it is a short sale or a conventional sale.

    My husband and I would not have our house today if

    SaraJean and Neil from Northglenn,Colorado


    My husband and I would not have our house today if our Realtor Frank Duran hadn't helped us.

    At the end of 2009, my husband I fell behind on our mortgage a 3 months ($3,300) due to my husband losing his job. At the time our Mortgage company was Chase Home Finance. We contacted them and they advised us to apply for a home modification. We did and we were approved for a trial modification starting January 2010. Everything was going fine, and we were making all the payments, no problem, then in September, we received three things from Chase: a letter stating that we were approved for the final permanent modification loan, the loan that we were to sign and return to them, which we did, and a letter stating that starting the first of October IBM LBPS would be the new owners of our loan. I called chase several times in that month just to verify that the modification loan that we had signed with them would transfer over to the new company and that would be loan we were paying on, and they assured me every time that , yes, that would be what happened, my modification would still stand with the new loan holder. The whole month of October the new lender would not give me any information on my account whatsoever. We advised them that because they were not giving us information on our account, we were going to be following the guidelines of my modification which stated that we didn't need to make a November payment, and the new loan payments started in December. Then we started getting collection calls from the new lender. When I would call and talk to them about it, they would say, "Oh yes we see that you have a modification on file and we will take you off the collections list. But it didn't stop.

    It was two weeks to April 20th, and I was getting the same useless information from the same useless people. Nothing was happening except that everyday we were getting closer to losing our home. I didn't know what to do, when my mother advised my husband and I to contact our Realtor, Frank Duran, because she had recently talked to him, and he had been helping his clients with these types of issues. We knew Frank, he was the one who helped us find our home, so I called him and explained the situation we were in and he offered to help us immediately. Everyday Frank would call me and we would call LBPS on a 3 way call and the incompetence of the company was immediately obvious to him. Finally, 2 days before the foreclosure date Frank got the loan writer to admit that their company had made a mistake and they were going to postpone the foreclosure date to July 7th to give them time to complete writing up our modification and if we made the trial payments on time, the foreclosure would be stopped permanently.
    The lack of communication and organization at this place was horrific, and if we did not have Frank there to help us out they would have taken our home from us on April 20th, no doubt about it. He put in 30 to 40 hours of phone time with us at least and probably even more. He did not let them get away with not answering our questions and he knew what to say to get answers. Companies like this seem designed to take advantage of people who are already in trouble, and it's amazing to have someone out there who is willing to help without anything to gain.

    Saved from Foreclosure!

    Susie M. from Denver,Colorado

    In July, 2009 I put my house in Denver on the market with another realtor. I had reached the point that it was time to retire and move to Texas to be closer to my family and for my health.
    In July, 2010 I took my home off the market to regroup. Then, thank the Lord, Frank Duran stepped into my life. With every step Frank worked closely with Bank of America. Every time we thought we were close they would come back for more documentation. Many times these were things that Frank had already provided to them.
    Frustration is an understatement for the process. Each day, the stress became bigger and bigger and having more of an impact on my life. But Frank never gave up on me although Bank of America did.
    We finally closed on August 12th, 2011

    Came so highly recommended.

    Lee and Jill from Thornton,Colorado

    My husband and I came to the conclusion we had to sell our house. Because of him losing his job for the 2nd time since our moving to Denver, we were once again behind in our mortgage and just couldn't keep up or catch up. I didn't know where to begin finding a realtor who would sincerely have our best interests in mind. I remembered a friend of mine spoke highly of a realtor she had switched to because of the frustration and lack of action in the selling of her condo with her first realtor. She spoke highly of this person so i contacted her for his name. I knew nothing of Frank Duran until my friend gave me his name and I googled it for some information. After contacting Frank, I soon learned why he came so highly recommended. Frank's passion for his profession was immediately obvious.
    My husband and I learned from Frank what we had been afraid of and that was that we were upside down in our mortgage. That did not stop Frank from sticking with us and helping us by providing us information about other options. Those options being possible loan modification, short sale, and yes even foreclosure if the previous two turned out not to be an option. We got a quick education about loan modifications by working with Frank. Frank even volunteered and followed through with having a conference call with him, myself and our bank.
    Thankfully, we were approved for a loan modification and were able to keep our home. Frank continued to stay in touch with us following up regularly through out the process to make sure all was proceding without complications.

    P.S. Frank...thank you for all you did. We only spoke via phone and never met, yet it was obvious you sincerely care and are unlike so many people out there who don't.

    Short sale.

    Wayne T. from Denver,Colorado

    A short sale can be a long, convoluted and frustrating process. The uncertainties, not to mention the circumstances precipitating the process, often discourage distressed homeowners from attempting a short sale. Frank Duran’s tireless efforts on behalf of his clients relieve much of the accompanying stress associated with the process. His fastidious attention was instrumental in the successful completion of the short sale of my home. Before initiating the short sale process, Mr. Duran discussed my possible alternatives, even arranging a final conference call to Bank of America to determine that all possible solutions, which would’ve allowed me to retain ownership of my home, had been exhausted; even though he would realize no profit or commission had such a possibility materialized. After determining that a short sale would be the best resolution, Mr. Duran’s attentiveness to timelines, requested documents and overall supervision of the process (with its seemingly arcane schedules, delays and requirements) avoided the pitfalls that sometimes capsize short sale attempts. While many people burdened with distressed mortgages think that foreclosure is the only solution, my experience with Mr. Duran compelled me to advise anyone in such situations to consider the alternative, a short sale. While individual circumstances differ, and a short sale might not ultimately be the best solution for everyone, I would highly recommend that distressed homeowners seriously consider the option. Additionally, based on my experience with Mr. Duran, I can confidently recommend him as an agent well qualified to navigate the short sale process, but also an agent possessing the commendable attributes of compassion, ethics and character

    Experience and knowledge

    James & Jaton from Westminster,Colorado


    Recently, our family found ourselves in an undesirable situation after my husband got transferred two hours out of Denver area. We were unable to afford two house payments. So, selling our house in Denver became a priority. We were blessed to find Frank Duran. He had experience and knowledge of the short sale process. He was understanding of our situation, always thoughtful with his words, and positive that he would sell our home. He made weekly calls to update us and showed enthusiasm to sell our house. In a very short time he accomplished it! Our house was sold, and our marriage saved.

    Thank you,

We tried working with Bank of America to keep this home, but to no avail. Frank, you were an angel God-sent. You went over and above to take care of all the problems that arose.

    I struggled for years.

    Sarah Pavelka from N/A


    I wanted to let you know how blessed I am to have worked with you on my short sale.
    I struggled for years to save my home but as a single mom and my company of 12 years shutting down I could not do it. I wanted to leave that memory behind and never look back. Someone told me to try the short sale but who would I call to even start this process? I wasn’t going to make much effort because I was already tired of dealing with the banks and mortgage companies. Well, Tom Martino’s trusted website was my first stop and my phone call to you was my last stop. I immediately felt that you were honest, knowledgeable and caring.

    I’m not sure how you did it, but within about 3 months you sold my home! My county for about a year or two had the highest foreclosure rate in the state of Colorado. I’ve seen similar properties sit for years and I’ve heard from so many people that their agents could not work things out with the mortgage companies. You did! You already have a great report with so many professionals in that industry and along with your ethics you were able to make the transaction.

    Frank, you were my rock. You seem to have an even balance of knowing hardship, struggles, and worries but are still able to guide, strengthen, and give encouragement. Your knowledge and your expertise in the real estate industry gave me the upmost confidence in your ability to handle the sale. Things came up and I worried, you were right there. I never had to wait around for a return phone call, you were always available and checked in often to answer questions and update me. I could go on and on about the amazing service you provided me. I would highly and have already started recommending your services.

    With Love and Many Blessings,

    Frank did an excellent job! Within 6 ½ weeks of putting my house up for sale, I was signing papers at closing. Frank is extremely knowledgeable of the market, hard-working, friendly, and professional. He was in contact with me on a regularly basis, available for any questions I had, and made me feel comfortable with all the steps required after the house was placed Under Contract. I couldn’t have been more pleased with how he handled all details of the sale. I would highly recommend him to anyone. I’ve already starting doing so with my friends!

    R. Hope from Northglen

    Our realtor Frank Duran was great! Buying or selling is a very stressful process. So many things could go wrong. But we had so much peace knowing that Frank was our agent. His very personable and professional approach took the worry out of everything. I had to have asked Frank about a thousand and one questions, but he always took the time to "listen" to me and answer my questions. Although Frank works with several clients at a time, I always felt like I was his only client. Frank always paid such close attention to detail. I feel that Frank had my best interest in mind from start to finish. It's obvious that Frank really cares about his customers. He took good care of me and he is obviously very good at what he does. If you give Frank the opportunity, I know he will do the same for you! God bless you Frank and your future success!!

    We love Frank Duran

    Brent & Stephanie from N/A

    Brent and I cannot stress THANK YOU enough. We've put together a special "we love Frank Duran" box that includes a little coffee we had sent from Germany (to keep you fired up, of course), as well as a couple of other goodies.

    The house saga has been a long one as you are aware. Prior to working with you we felt that we were nothing more than doomed slaves to the market that real estate has now become. Needless to say, the last two years have been a serious financial disaster. When I finally made the move to sell the house I knew it was a gamble - the market had not improved and if it didn't sell, we were going to be that much further in the hole.

    However, when you arrived, professional and polite, I was willing to take a leap of faith and trust you as so many of your other clients have in the past.

    Now, here in the final stretch I have to say that you've far surpassed anything I would have ever expected from you. Not only did you get us showings, but you got us A LOT of showings, and with that came a fruitful buyer. I cannot even begin to express the amount of gratitude we feel. You haven't just sold our have given us back a savings account, birthdays, Christmas's and vacations - simple luxuries that we haven't shared together for a very long time.

    It's tough to think that we could actually thank you enough for something like that - the "we love Frank Duran" box we put together seems a little paltry compared to the feat that you have achieved - like a lighthouse resilient against the crashing waves of an unforgiving sea, you've stood, resolute in an unforgiving market and demanded compliance.

    You've sold our house and we appreciate everything you've done - from the late night phone calls to the tough negotiations, it's something we'll never forget. Should my job bring us back to Denver, you can expect a phone call back from us... we'll probably be in the market for an impressive realtor.

    Take care and God bless. Thanks!!!

    Much commitment

    Kathy S from N/A

    I truly believe that no other real estate Agent could have done a better job or would have shown as much commitment as Frank did in selling a home for my sister who now lives in Missouri. My husband had used Frank to sell his townhouse after we were married and he was very impressed with Frank’s professional approach, knowledge of the market and proactive selling techniques. When my sister had to evict a tenant from her previous home here in Colorado she was very distraught and concerned about how she could possibly handle selling the property without having to make repeated trips to Colorado. She was also “upside down” on the property and needed to minimize the amount of money that she would have to pay at closing. My husband suggested that she enlist Frank’s assistance in selling the property. Frank went out of his way to coordinate all aspects of the sale remotely and assisted her with many of the small details that could have been overlooked given her inability to be on site. Frank consistently went the extra mile to assure that all of the financial elements were addressed and that the sale was completed to her satisfaction. Frank has a very positive and caring attitude that makes it a pleasure to work with him particularly in difficult situations. We have already recommended him to other friends and wouldn’t hesitate to use him again ourselves.

    In danger of foreclosure

    Deborah B. from N/A

    I found Frank Duran on the Tom Martino list. After looking through the other agents profiles, I firmly decided to give Frank a call. My home was in danger of foreclosure. My desire was to prevent foreclosure if at all possible. Based on what I had read about Frank’s track record, it seemed that Frank was very seasoned, skilled and knowledgeable about short sales and preventing foreclosure. Fortunately for me, everything I read about Frank was so very true! Facing foreclosure is a scary thing. I was so nervous about everything. However, once I met Frank, his friendly personality & deep knowledge about short sales made me feel at ease. Frank was clearly dedicated, as he was willing to meet me anywhere to get paperwork signed. Sometimes even late at night. I can honestly say that having Frank as my real estate agent was like having a good friend help me through the process. He took the time to listen to me regarding my fears, needs & frustrations. He always seemed to have a plan no matter how difficult the situation seemed at the time. Frank had a way to always make me feel at ease no matter what the circumstances. Now my home is closed and officially saved from foreclosure! I feel like a huge weight has been lifted off my shoulders. Thank you Frank! I will refer you to everyone and anyone I know!!

With professionalism, energy, aggressiveness and commitment - Frank not only listed our home of 11 years, but also got it sold! Frank showed us dedication that can not be found in any other realtor. After Frank viewed our home, we sat down together discussed our home and the process he wanted to take. After living in a home for so long, it becomes a part of who you are. Frank was sincere, gracious and treated this sale as if it were his own home. If we had not transferred out of state, Frank would definitely be our realtor we would use to help purchase our new home.

    What can I say about Frank Duran? I can honestly say that Frank Duran is a TRUE first class professional who far exceeded my expectations! When I put Frank to work for me, I had already looked at his very impressive track record from other past clients. When I talked to Frank, it was apparent that he was so much different than all the other agents I talked to. You would have to meet Frank to truly understand and appreciate what I am talking about. Frank's dedication, work ethic, passion and strong motivation is something I have never experienced from another real estate agent. It's obvious that Frank is truly in love with his profession. He takes care of his clients with all his heart and he gave me his 200% undivided attention. Although Frank is very busy with several clients at a time, whenever I had a question for Frank, I never felt like I was bothering him. He always took the time to make me feel at ease, and many times I was surprised that he would even return my calls late at night. Considering I was also able to reach him early in the morning, I was impressed with his dedication and long hours he puts in. Frank told me that real estate is not a "job" to him, it is his "passion". Working with Frank on the sale and purchase of my home, it was clear to me that he truly loves what he does, and he really cares about his clients. From his detailed contract knowledge, strong negotiating skills on my behalf, very aggressive marketing strategies and systems, and overall first class customer service, Frank is truly a first class professional and excellent at what he does! Thank you Frank for your kindness, professionalism, willingness to "listen", and your overall 200% dedication. You are the BEST at what you do!

"Our home had been listed with another realtor for three months with no communication and no results. Frank called and sent information regarding his approach to selling houses, and statements from people with whom he had worked to sell their homes. At the time we thought these testimonials seemed too good to be true. However, we liked Frank's presentation and contracted with him. On the day of the closing on our house, I was going through my "house file" and saw the testimonials Frank had sent two months earlier.. These testimonials were, in fact, all true.

He's awesome, great personality, friendly and will work hard for his client. I'm impressed! Frankly, speaking, I didn't think it would ever happen.

Believe me, there are many realtors out there. I chose Frank from the Tom Martino referral list. After reading a little about the others, I chose Frank. When I met Frank, I thought...he's a kid, but after talking with him, he's very focused and knowledgeable in this field. He put my place on the market and worked it. The rest is history... After months of negotiating with the bank & HOA on my property, there were so many hurdles for us to jump through, the ups & downs and it looking bad, it even looked impossible at times. Frank never quit and kept me posted of what was happening. I really like that. Frank's work ethics are awesome. He went for it, and as impossible as the situation looked at times, he said "Rose I won't ever quit on you". In the end it was really good news...Frank Helped me save my home from foreclosure!
