    Working with Frank Duran was an absolutely amazing

    Wade F. from Thornton, CO

    7-3-14
    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.

    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

    Robert & Lisa from Keenesburg, CO

    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

    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.

    Thank you for listing our house, it was so cool to see offers coming in within 2 days and you helped us select the right buyer for us and you got us more than the asking price and a contract was on the house within the same week. The sale went very smoothly. You and Michael did a great job on helping us combat some issues with a difficult builder on our new home as well.

    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!!

    We were referred to Frank Duran by a friend who heard Tom Martino recommend him on the radio. Our friend recommended him and directed us to his website. We selected Frank after MANY months of frustration with another agent. Frank is the best realtor, friend, person of character that we have met in a long time. He is a person that we were so blessed to have put in our lives. Thank you and prayers for your life, family and community!

    He is a different type of realtor

    John & Tracie Z. from Denver, CO

    10/18/2013
    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

    9/4/2013
    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 -

    Home going into foreclosure.

    Lizz C. from Denver, CO

    6/14/2013
    "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."

    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

    1/10/2013
    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

    12/4/2012
    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.

    "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.

    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.

    We are thrilled with the service and dedication Frank Duran provided when we were looking to purchase a home. He was so supportive, and he encouraged us not to settle for a home that didn’t include everything we wanted in a home. Frank Duran doesn\'t just look to “make the sale,” he ensures you are satisfied with the entire home-buying experience. Frank Duran is a businessman with the utmost integrity and someone you can trust. We are so happy with our new home, and we are so glad we chose Frank Duran as our Realtor.

    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!

    Frank Duran is Stellar

    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

    10-27-2011
    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

    10-3-2011
    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

    8-24-2011

    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.

    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.

    Lee and Jill from Thornton,Colorado

    7-8-2011
    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

    6-24-2011
    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

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.

    Frank,
    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.

    We love Frank Duran

    Brent & Stephanie from N/A

    Frank,
    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 house...you 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.

    Dear Frank,
    I want to personally thank you for your support and efforts in the selling of our home. It's always a traumatic experience leaving a place that you've been in for so many years.

    When the time came, we wanted to be sure that the house would be properly marketed and sold within a reasonable amount of time. We appreciate the way you went to market with our property and the personal touch you showed to get other realtors involved to come and look at what we had to offer as well.

    We recognized that it was a buyers market and there was a lot to choose from for the potential buyer. That's why we're so pleased you were involved! Thank you again for your tenacity Frank!!

    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!!

    Sincere appreciation

    Joseph & Sarah from N/A

    This letter is being written with sincere appreciation and gratitude for a fantastic job done by Frank Duran. 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. I would recommend to anyone to chose Frank if what they are searching for is honesty, loyalty, dedication, assertiveness and a job done above what is expected and desired.

    Who far exceeded m
    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!

    Sheila M from N/A

    Thanks again for all your help in selling our house. We appreciate your efforts and it was a pleasure working with you. "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. Frank is professional, energetic, provides incredible customer service, and will get your house sold. Just give him a chance!"

    Rose J. from N/A

    First of all, I'd like to thank Frank Duran for the hard work...not to mention the hours, days, months he put into getting my home sold. His work ethics from 1 to 10 is an 11! 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. The real estate industry needs more people like Frank Duran. He made a believer out of me. I worried the whole entire time. However, Frank said he would do everything in his power to get the job done for me. Well, he did it! We successfully closed on my home on August 30, 2010!!! I'm so glad I chose Frank. 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! Thank you Frank for a job well done!

    Commitment and Dedication

    David & E.J. from N/A

    We would like to thank you Frank for your deep commitment and dedication in helping us sell our home, and purchase our new home. As you know, our finances took a major hit when I lost my job. Making payments on our former home became increasingly strenuous. Unfortunately, this resulted in our need to sell our former house and down size to a smaller and more comfortable monthly payment. The challenge to sell our home was another concern. The market had really taken a dive, and we noticed that many homes were not selling at all. Fortunately we had you as our agent. You took the time to help us analyze our options selling & buying, and came very well prepared with an aggressive marketing plan. It was apparent that you had a detailed plan to "truly" help us get in a much better position than we were in before. When several other homes had been just sitting on the market for several months without a sale, you sold our home and negotiated a good price for our needs. We were one of the few homes that actually sold in our neighborhood! When we purchased our new home, you were in our corner every step of the way negotiating with the builder. You gave us your personal touch by keeping the sales rep at the builder on the straight and narrow. You negotiated an awesome price for us with the builder. Then the manager at the builder tried to "back pedal" and not honor what they agreed to at the sales office. You stayed on top of everything, and your hard work, persistence, and ethical practice resulted in the builder manager backing down and honoring their original agreement. Because of the Lords blessings, and your hard work, we will now save around $20,000 over the next three years in our new home!!! To say we are relieved from the stress we were under and so happy with our new home is a major understatement!! Thank you Frank for your honesty, negotiating skills, hard work & "pit bull" persistence. We will recommend you to everyone and anyone we know! Blessings to you and your family,

    THANK YOU

    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 house...you 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!!!

    Extremely knowledgeable

    Mr. and Mrs. Paul G. from N/A

    We would like to take this time to thank Frank Duran for his expertise in real estate and for selling our home in a little over two months. He is extremely knowledgeable and an expert in his field. His professionalism, expertise and personable qualities lend him the ability to sell, or find you your perfect home. We listed our home when the real estate market was inundated with homes for sale and the economy was taking a downward spiral. We needed to sell our home; however, when we listed our home, we believed that it would take some time for our home to sell. The real estate market was slow and many homes were taking several months to sell, or were taken off the market because there was no movement. Frank Duran, with his real estate knowledge and experience, his marketing skills, pleasant personality and positive attitude, sold our home during a very competitive and difficult time. These are only a few of his positive attributes. He has a deep passion and zest for what he does and it shows. He takes pride in doing an excellent job and it is apparent when you are dealing with him. We highly recommend and endorse Frank Duran as a real estate agent. Thank you Frank, for a job well done!

When we first found the house we wanted to buy, it seemed like there were many hoops that we'd have to jump through to make things work - considering we didn't even have our house on the market yet. But you helped us get moving quickly, and our house was sold within 45 days! The process of buying and selling a home has it's stressful moments, but we felt that you were in our corner every step of the way. You were always very prompt in returning our calls and we were confident that you were looking out for our best interest. That made all the difference to us. We know that you work with several clients at a time, but when dealing with us, we felt that we had your undivided attention and never felt like we were bothering you with all our questions. You were also very helpful in guiding us through the negotiation process. We have watched you work extremely hard and yet manage to stay on top of all the details. You are obviously very dedicated to what you do and to doing it well! Thank you for helping us through this process with minimal stress. In the short time we have worked with you, we feel that we have not only gained a great agent, but also someone we trust as a friend.

    I had the good fortune.

    Mary & Frank J. from N/A

    When the time came to list our house for sale, I was at a loss on how to choose a realtor from all the thousands in the metro area. I couldn’t generate much enthusiasm about those I’d dealt with in the past. But I thought, does it really make any difference? Don’t they all do about the same thing? Well, yes it does and no they don’t! I had the good fortune of seeing Frank Duran’s website and, after talking to him, was convinced he was the realtor we needed to sell our house. And, to our amazement, within a week of listing the house we had received 2 offers and accepted a contract, which then closed a month later. From start to finish – gauging the appropriate listing price and marketing approach; contract negotiations and interaction with buyer’s agent, appraiser, loan officer, etc, - Frank kept on top of everything and kept us informed at all times. There were issues that arose, which came as no surprise given the age of the house, but Frank was never at a loss for resourceful, creative solutions that worked for both sides and that could be implemented smoothly without losing a lot of precious time. We are still astounded that the experience of selling our home, which we had dreaded, turned out to be more swift and unproblematic than we could have dreamed. Frank Duran’s savvy, integrity, and positive energy are second to none. We were fortunate to have him as our realtor and would do business with him again in a heartbeat!

    I truly appreciate all of your efforts on behalf of my sister and would definitely recommend your services to our friends. 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.

    Trust Must Be Earned

    James and Rita S. from N/A

    We purchased a house in Aurora, CO. over a year ago. We did a rehab and placed it on the market. After over a year, we came into contact with Frank Duran. Frank told us that he sells houses. He does not put them on multiple listings and let someone buy the house, he analyses the house, the contacts he has made and matches the needs of people to the houses he has listed. He lays out a plan and executes the plan. Well, we have heard stories from many people on what they say they can do. It is often difficult to weed out the “bull” from the truth. Well Frank performed as he said and in a few weeks the house that was not sold for over a year was sold at a very reasonable price. Other realtors had approached us and wanted to discount the house well below market so they could sell it. At this point I can say with absolute certainty that if Frank says he has a marketing plan and that he can sell, or negotiate, or any other function of a professional, expert realtor, then you can with full confidence believe what he says. He is a man of integrity. We thank you, Frank, for you expert, professional service. We appreciate the timely way in which you conduct your business. We mostly appreciate the professional and caring way in which you communicate along the path to the final transaction. Trust must be earned. YOU HAVE EARNED OURS.

    Recomended by a Co-Worker

    Connie A. from N/A

    Frank Duran was recommended to me by a co-worker and from the moment I spoke with him on the phone I knew he was the realtor for me. His 'can do' attitude, real estate knowledge, and professionalism set him apart from other realtors I spoke with. I had a home to sell in a declining market this past June and I was worried about the prospects of getting the job done. Instead of telling me what I wanted to hear, Frank told me what I needed to hear about the realities of today's market. Other realtors, in order to get the contract, will tell you they can get you more for your home than is actually possible only to have you lower the price later on, sometimes several times. Not a good strategy! Frank really knows his business and as a result we sold my home in 3 days with an ensuing bidding war and I made $10,000.00 more than I was asking. SWEET! In fact, my neighbors were so impressed they used Frank to sell their home a couple of weeks later and he performed his magic with them as well, all in a weeks time. Frank Duran and his team WILL get the job done. You can be assured you are in very good hands. Thanks Frank! Three VERY satisfied clients will continue to recommend your services to anyone needing an excellent realtor.

    Honesty

    Lynn Smith from N/A

    Frank Duran was my real estate agent in the sale of my home. Prior to that time, I was working with a different real estate company and agent. I was in a situation where I was under contract to build a house, and needed a quick sale on my home. I didn’t feel that this was being pursued by the agent I was working with, and therefore, withdrew from the contract. I began to interview other real estate agents at various companies. However, Frank contacted me by phone and asked that I consider meeting with him. Frank gave me a brief outline of his successful career in the real estate business. I agreed to meet with Frank the next morning. Frank was prepared for our meeting, bringing with him a market analysis and comparable properties that recently sold in my area and price range. I didn’t take it lightly when choosing an agent, and explained that to Frank. He appreciated my honesty and impressed me so much that I did sign with him. Before the end of the week my house was under contract. Frank worked to ensure that I was treated fairly by the buyers and their agent, and I knew Frank was doing the best job possible for me. I fully recommend Frank Duran to anyone in need of a quality real estate agent.

    I used to be an flight attendent and when a passengerthought I'd done an exceptional job,they would write me a "orchid letter".Thie is my orshid letter to Frankis on every level. I was lucky enough to be found by Frank after listing with on other agent had expired,Iwasa naive enough to think that if my house was staged andimmaculately presented, the house would sell itself. So the first time a had a 3 month listing with one of those rtedused commision real estate companies. They made numerous mistakes, including ending my listing earlyand asking ME why my house wasn't selling. Then Frank contacted me. By the time I chose him, I had intervieweda total of 11 agents over a five month period. Frank got me more qualified showings in 3 weeks than the other agent got me in 3 months. Within 6 weeks of lsting with Frank, we recieved an offer and sold the house at over 99% of our asking price. Frank not only is smart and savvy about this difficult real estate market, but he also works incredibly hard and is a man of honesty and integrity. And he did all of this for someone who moved out of state and couldn't give him repeat business!I cannot recommend highly enough.. in businessfilled with agents who colud be considered"lumps and Coal"for allthey accomplish, if you choose frank , you find a Diamond.

    Brian and I would like to thank you Frank Duran for the outstanding service you provided us when selling our house. You not only delivered on your promise, but working with you was such a pleasure. We both feel as though we have a new friend. We had previously listed our house with two other realtors with whom we had our house on the market for three months each. Neither Realtor kept in touch with us the way you did, an neither made much more of an effort to sell our house short of listing it on the MLS. Needless to say, our house did not sell. After our listing had expired with our second agent, we listed our house with you, and we had a contract within three weeks (just four showings later)! I don’t know how you get the word out-but whatever you are doing works! We were very pleased with your customer service, attention to detail, and willingness to go the extra mile to get our house sold quickly. Thank you for your excellent service!

    Potential Buyers and Sellers

    Charles & Peggy H. from N/A

    Potential home buyers and sellers: Our home was originally listed with another broker. During the time of our initial 6-month listing term, the broker wasn’t responsive to changes in the marketplace or pre-approving potential showings. There were instances where the broker brought people, just to see the decor. We received more offers to purchase our furnishings, rather than on the house. Overall, the broker made the experience very stressful for us. At the end of our contract, we explored the option of choosing another broker and interviewed several well-known agents. We were totally impressed with the presentation, enthusiasm, integrity and professional attitude exhibited by Frank Duran. Frank Utilized a very aggressive marketing plan in this tough market, and our home sold for the full asking price of $599,900 with competing offers! We highly recommend Frank to our friends, and anyone considering the possibly of selling their home. We have purchased, remodeled and sold 16 homes-using different agents in different locales-and Frank is, by far, the best broker we’ve ever worked with.

    Brent & Sandra J. from N/A

    To whom it may concern: We listed and sold our home with Frank Duran. We had originally listed our home with a different Realtor. It was on the market for over eight months and we never received an offer. We decided to try again and listed with Frank. Within two months we had several offers and a sale. Frank worked with us continually during the time our home was listed. He agreed to call us a minimum of twice a week and did so. He agreed to follow up on all showings and did so. We were always informed on how each showing had gone. He constantly evaluated the competition. He presented our home to the Board of Realtors on several occasions. He listened to our concerns. He worked with us on the offers we received and helped us decide on what should be included in a counter-offer. He followed through on everything related to the listing and sale of the property. As you are in the evaluation process to determine which Realtor will list your property, we encourage you to consider Frank. We interviewed Frank and several other Realtors on the phone before deciding to have Frank list our property. He came across on the phone as a ‘go-getter’ and proved it to us in getting our home sold in a reasonable time. Thanks Frank!

    To Prospective Clients

    Darryl & Jan R. from N/A

    To prospective client of Frank Duran: You can not do better than to list a house through Frank or buy one with Frank!! I’ll make this as short as possible. Frank sold our home in 10 days. During that 10 days, we showed our home about 20 times! We had previously listed our home with another agent for 90 days, had 43 showings, NO OFFERS, and the Realtor never once called us in that 90 days!! It was really awful. Then we found Frank, what a difference there is in Realtors. Buying and selling a home was the most stressful position we had ever put ourselves in. Without Frank we never would have come through it as well as we did!! I can’t say enough about how wonderful Frank was to us. Besides the fact that we now have a very good friend, he treated us right.

    We tried to sell on our own

    Gordon and Robin B. from N/A

    We tried to sell our home on our own to no avail. We then listed our home with a Realtor and had few showings and very little hope. After the contract expired with our Realtor, we were contacted by Frank Duran, who was persistent in his desires to help us sell our home and to re-list it with him. After interviewing Realtors, we decided that Frank would serve our needs best. He proved his service through frequent updates, more showings, and a marketing strategy that worked. Frank sold our home in about six weeks, just as he told us he would. We would highly recommend Frank Duran for your real estate needs. He is dedicated, conscientious, hard working individual, who sets his goals and meets them for his clients as well as for himself. Thank you Frank for taking so much of the burden off of us and selling our home in a timely manner. We appreciate your professionalism in handling our home sale!

    To Good to be True

    The McDermotts from N/A

    "Too good to be true?" Mr. Frank Duran is too good, but proved that it is TRUE! Frank is a delightful, and energetic sales representative who is capable of doing the impossible. After total failure by another realtor, Frank sprang into action and had our home sold in less than a week. He did background work that astounded the appraiser. Then, he ended up teaching the appraiser how to do a value update on properties. We would not hesitate hiring Mr. Duran to represent any and all of our properties in the future.

    Professional and Confident

    Richard & Carol P. from N/A

    Our home was listed for 8 months with another Broker, to no avail, with little interest from anyone. Frank called us and asked if we still wanted to sell our home after our listing with the first agent had expired. We agreed to meet with him for an appointment. To say the least, we were impressed with your easy going style, professionalism and self confidence, yet not arrogant. Your forthright presentation was impressive and we decided to list our home with you, Frank Duran. Of course, we thought it would take another few months. Much to our surprise, Frank sold our home in three weeks at full price ($469,900) along with two backup offers! You are a dynamic individual and you work very hard. During this time you also welcomed a new family member into your home, yet you stayed on top of things and got the job done. Blessings,

    Extraordinarily Pleasent and Motivated

    Mary Bollinger C. from N/A

    I Mary Bollinger Chavez highly recommend Frank Duran as your realtor! Frank is a very extraordinarily pleasant, self confident, very motivated person, and that is what it took to sell our house. We had our house on the market for almost one year with another realtor. We decided to take it off of the market, because we felt that we could not get it sold. We finally talked with Frank. Frank was very confident and had no doubts that he could sell our home. Frank took over the listing, and in about four weeks, he had a contract on it! He put a lot of work into selling our home and he stayed on top of everything at all times. I had many doubts about selling our house, But Frank proved me wrong. I have recommended Frank to all of our friends and family, because that is how much confidence my husband and I have in him!

    Excitement and Follow up

    The David Doyle Family from N/A

    First of all, let me tell you that I don’t like realtors, especially the pushy type that call you out of the blue and act like your best friend. I don’t like loosing money, and I don’t like feeling dumb. So I decided I would sell my house myself. No problem, I read a few books, talked to a few friends and had an open house. No problem and no buyers. I told my husband \"okay, if it doesn’t sell by the first of the month we’ll get a Realtor.\" I advertised my home in the paper and guess what? No buyers. People were calling asking me about financing and foundations, subjects I had no idea about. My time ran out sooner than I expected when my husband got a new job and they wanted him a.s.a.p. Frank Duran called us earlier in the week about our home. We called Frank and said \"okay, take your best shot.\" I was very impressed with Frank’s excitement and follow-up. He did what he said he would do and through his efforts and the Lord’s blessing, we had a contract in our hands the day the moving truck was packed. So here’s my advise. If you want to sell your home yourself, go for it. But plan on spending lots of time and frustration learning a new vocabulary and hoping that you don’t miss something important in fine print. Having Frank around actually saved us money because we were able to sell our home quickly and go on to the next chapter in our lives. Looking back I wouldn’t have changed a thing.

    Fortunately for us

    Rick and Debbie P. from N/A

    We had our home for sale with another agent/agency for 90 days. During that time, very little activity occurred. The agent assured us everything was being done to sell our home. When the listing expired, my wife and I decided to find another real estate agent. Fortunately for us, we decided to give Frank a try. Through Frank’s persistent calling and work, he got our listing. We had more activity within 30 days than what we had in 90 days with the other agent. Our house sold in only 5 weeks just as Frank had predicted. We would highly recommend Frank Duran for any of your real estate needs. You will not find someone more dedicated or hard working. We would not think of using anyone else for our real estate needs in the future.

    He is a joy to work with.

    Sheryl R. from N/A

    Our home was on the market for better than 6 months with another realtor before we met Frank Duran. We heard it all, "lower the price", "the competition is tough out there", you name it. After our listing expired with the first realtor, Frank arrived at our home prepared with a complete market analysis of comparable houses in the area and actual sales and marketing strategies to sell our property. Frank listed our home and in just 3 weeks we had 5 offers on our home. Frank utilized his exceptional negotiation skills and we got the full contract price for our home ($5,000 higher than the last agent had it listed for!) Frank Duran is aggressive, competent and highly skilled in what it takes to sell your property. We recommend Frank Duran to anyone selling a house. He’s a joy to work with and enjoys what he’s doing.

    Commitment

    Cori E. from N/A

    I had a condominium that I had been trying to sell for over a year with another agent. I had just pulled the listing off the market when Frank called me. Frank assured me that he would be much more proactive and that he believed he could get it sold in 40 days or less. I read all of his testimonial letters and decided to give him a whack at it. He presented his strategy for selling my property and followed each action step he indicated. Frank listed my property & had a contract on it in only 6 days! I was so pleased with the professionalism and commitment of Frank, that my husband and I are planning on listing our current home with him as well. Overall, Frank has a proven track record and has continually succeeded in cleaning up other agents failures. I do and will continue to recommend him to anyone selling a home.
