Chris Szarka



Something that draws me to real estate is the ongoing learning experience. Every transaction is unique and the market is always changing, so I go out of my way to meet my client's needs. I am determined to learn the facts and be able to relay that information to my clients in a way that makes sense. Real estate is one of those industries where things sound like a foreign language. As your realtor, my value lies in communicating to you every step of the process in a way that's easy to understand. Many people find themselves stressed when they enter the buying or selling process, but with me, I make it fast, easy, and fun. One fun fact about me is that I am currently looking to buy my first home this year, so I can relate to the emotions my clients are feeling! As a buyer myself, I know that good communication and a smooth process will make a huge difference in the experience you have as a buyer or seller. An added bonus is that I’m in real estate full time, so I am able to respond to questions swiftly! This is particularly helpful in a fast-paced market, like Denver. My background: I am a man of many trades. I'm a Marine, a minister, a business owner and more. This means I have refined skills in varies fields not including real estate. About me: I am a Colorado native, born and raised. In my spare time, I like to go to the gym, explore Colorado, or just relax. My family is quite small; it’s just me, my mom, and my little sister. I also have a mixed dog named Ava. Even though she is really lazy, I love her. Little known facts about me: -I’m ordained as a minister -I hiked Mount Elbert -I own my own LLC I would love to help you with all your real estate needs!

Mark Kruse



I'm Mark Kruse, II. CRS, GRI, ABR, SRS, CNHS, RCC, RENE, CLHMS and I have been a Real Estate Agent for over 17 years.

So what's with all the letters after my name? You could say that if a PhD was offered in real estate, I'd qualify. What all those letters of certification mean is that I'm serious about my profession. Finding the right home, in the right neighborhood, for the right price for my client is what I love to do.

For the record, here's what those letters stand for: CRS: Certified Residential Specialist GRI: Graduate of Real Estate Institute ABR: Accredited Buyer's Representative SRS: Seller's Representative Specialist

But don't get the idea that I'm a boring professor of Colorado real estate. I love having fun as much as the next person. A Colorado native, I love to ski and travel. I put over 24,000 miles a year on my car checking out properties and escorting clients to properties. That equates to 24,000 miles a year in gathering information and expanding my knowledge of what's out there.

I keep in the know and on the move. I'm known around town as the condo and HUD expert. I work from Boulder to Bennett, Brighton to Evergreen, Castle Rock to Evans.

Mark recently helped us put our house on the market and I'm so grateful for his help! In Denver, there's so many real estate agents that have popped up in recent years. It's hard to know who to trust and not all Real Estate agents are the same. Mark is a professional with years of experience in Denver, not a part-time agent trying to make a quick buck on the side (like a lot of agents out there). I had some tricky issues with my title and his team was able to make a potential challenge a seamless experience. His guidance on how to prepare our house for showing was expert and he helped us know where to spend money and where we didn't need to spend money on renovations. I'll definitely be referring him to friends and family.

I have had the pleasure of working with Mark Kruse on several occasions over the years. He helped us to buy our home in July 2011 and it was a positive experience from start to finish. He is a delight and our experiences have always been exceptional. He is a true expert in his field and goes above and beyond to help his clients. Mark is honest, kind, professional, and very patient. He spends time with his clients, truly listening to them. He is the best Realtor in Denver and we have referred him to several friends that have also been thrilled with him! We have a Realtor for life! Mark has become a great friend and I appreciate everything that he has done to help me, Jon, and our boys. Thank you, Mark Kruse!

It is always an absolute pleasure working with Mark Kruse. He is very talented and knows all the neighborhoods well since he is a Colorado native. Mark is honest, very hard working and goes above and beyond to make buying a home a fun and exciting experience. He helped us find our home last July and our family loves it. Mark is very organized and handles every detail from start to finish. He took all the time we needed to make sure we found exactly what we wanted. We highly recommend him to anyone that is looking to buy and/or sell a home. We continue to recommend him to family and close friends. Mark is our realtor for life! Thank you, Mark Kruse.

Buying a home may never be easy, but certian things make it much harder. One of these is buying from out of state and another is being a first time home-buyer. But rather than seeing these possible set-backs as any sort of difficulty, Mark Kruse seemed to almost enjoy the added challenge! His promtness in returning calls and his candor when answering outlandish questions (sometimes more than once) were amazing. His communication skills are truly impeccable as well as his professionalism and general demeanor. I honestly can not imagine buying a home, or even a family member or friend, buying a home without him. No task is too hard, or challenge too great, he can handle anyone or thing. I have referred him many many times and EVERYONE who has worked with him has thanked me :)

Mark Kruse helped me and my family get into our dream home! I am not the easiest person to satisfy but Mark was very accommidating. He showed us house after house after house. Nothing had everything I wanted but Mark just kept sending us emails with available homes until we found the ONE! Mark did a great job and made a great deal for us. We love our new home and although I cannot ever see moving again if we did I would not hesitate to call Mark Kruse. I tell all my friends to call him!

Mark's help with buying a house was more than anyone could've asked for. I've heard horror stories of people buying house and that is was a very stressful and awful event; however, buying a house with Mark made it a breeze. I've been in my house for a year now and I still love it as much as I did when I signed the paperwork for it. Mark is the best realtor to use in Denver metro area!
