I am a first time home buyer and was recommended to Kathy Tye from a friend. She has gone above and beyond to help me in every corner of the process. She has informed me of the ins and outs the dos and don'ts. I was required to take a home buyers course for my loan conditions and during the 6 hours of the class 90% of it were things that Kathy had already gone over with me,, I have felt secure and taken care of from beginning to the end thru the closing. I would recommend her to any family member,, friend or anyone looking to buy a home. 5 stars

We would like to let you know what an amazing experience we had working with Kathy Tye. She was so detailed and kept us on track throughout the process. Since we have known Kathy personally for years,, we were a bit apprehensive to work with her on a professional level,, but she very quickly put any concerns that we had to rest. Kathy helped us find a property with a 1031 Exchange after selling the office building that we had owned for 14 years and helped us to find a Live/Work Space that is perfect for our business. She kept us on track and on schedule. Kathy gave us good advice,, helping us to look at the big picture for our long term goals,, that we sometimes overlooked being so close to the situation. She connected us with the right contacts to make the 1031 Exchange process easy and seamless. Her professionalism and attention to detail were far better than we have ever experienced with other real estate professionals. We would highly recommend Kathy as a Realtor and will use her in our future transactions.

Kathy Tye assisted me in purchasing a home in Cherry Creek. As I was relocating to Denver from outside of the US I needed considerably more assistance in understanding the whole home purchase process as well as selecting the right location. This was the 20th home that I have purchased around the world and I can say that the level of service that Kathy provided was the best I have seen. Nothing was too much trouble and in addition to helping select the appropriate location in Denver she assisted with many other relocation items that a realtor would not normally do. Kathy was always very responsive and if she did not immediately know the answer to a question she would do the necessary research and always call me back with no need of follow up. In summary I cannot speak highly enough of Kathy and would recommend her for any relocation/home purchase.

Buying and selling a house is challenging in todays market,, which is why we are glad we chose an experienced and knowledgeable realtor like Kathy Tye to walk us through the process. She helped us from the very start to recognize improvements that might enhance our home before we put it up for sale. She walked us through the staging process so that we could present a home free of clutter and personal attachments. Kathy also helped us to analyze our competition so that we could arrive at a realistic price. Most importantly,, she was extremely encouraging and supportive as we went through the ups and downs of finding the right buyer. She also made it easy to get through the flood of paperwork necessary for the sale,, which really put us at ease. This was only one half of our process with Kathy,, as she also helped us to search tirelessly for the perfect new home for us. Here she did a great job of searching areas that would be a fit for us and kept us updated on anything new we could look at as soon as they were on the market. When we found the house we wanted,, she did a great job of helping us to negotiate the price and closing details. Working with a person that has a positive attitude and a sense of humor sure took a lot of stress out of the process for us. We were delighted with the professional and personal attention we received from Kathy and highly recommend her services to anyone thinking of moving in the near future.

Kathy was fantasticspent LOTS of time helping us find the right property. Very patient,, very responsive,, very willing to keep working. Communication was Excellent! Would recommend her to others looking in Denver.

There are so many things to compliment Kathy on that it's hard to say what's the most important. We had 2 contracts fall through when trying to sell our home,, through no fault of ours nor of our broker. She was incredibly patient in explaining the process to us,, getting us the right information at the right time. It was clear from the beginning that she was absolutely going to get us the best deal she could and she made herself available for any questions we had through the 3-month process. Her advice on how best to prepare and present the home probably was a major contributing factor to the sale price we got,, which was quite a bit higher than either me or my wife had expected we could get. We will definitely be recommending her to any of our friends and family looking to move property in the metro area - which she understands in a wide market,, not just one smaller area.

I had the pleasure of working with Kathy Tye on what was one of my more challenging real estate transactions. Kathy's professionalism to her client and to me was exemplary and I truly appreciated her efforts and expertise to overcome the challenges presented by my buyers lender. Rather than going through the transactions challenges,, I would rather tell you that Kathy's willingness to get into the trenches and collaborate on difficult issues demonstrated true dedication to her profession. Kathy is someone I sincerely respect and hope to have the opportunity to work with again in the future. I am certain she is a valued member of your organization and appreciate your time to read this email. Here's to continued success to us all!

It is with pleasure and gratitude that we share our experience of listing and selling our condominium with Kathy Tye as our realtor (Supreme Realty Group). We have bought and sold a number of houses over the past 30 years and have rarely had a realtor with Kathys knowledge of the current housing market and understanding of human nature,, both seller and buyer. Each phase of the sales effort was superior: innovative efforts in developing prospects,, useful insights on pre-listing,, staging and repair items; Kathys effective showings and proactive facilitation of the sale negotiations exemplified excellent due diligence. All of these tasks,, whether business-related or interpersonal,, were accomplished with grace,, integrity,, competence and kindness. We highly recommend Kathy Tye for your residential real estate needs

Kathy Tye was absolutely fabulous!! Not only did she help us find our dream home,, but she also became a friend,, source of support,, and someone we would tell anyone searching for a home to work with. Kathy listened to us and gave us wonderful advice and support throughout the process. The only negative is that we don't get to spend time with Kathy since our house search has ended!! Thank you all at Supreme Realty Group!  

– Larissa and Brandon Foster


I just wanted to drop a line to thank you for being the best realtor on the planet! Not only did you stick with us in a very HOT market while we searched almost a year for the perfect home,, but you were professional,, knowledgeable and supportive every step of the way. You demonstrated high competence during some very complex situations,, including a short sale and bidding wars. Ultimately,, we found and bought our perfect home,, and we can't thank you enough. We will refer you to anyone who might be looking for Denver's best realtor. We had her!

You are truly one of my greatest blessings! I can't thank you enough for all your help with procuring my new home! I'm truly grateful for you and your patience and god given talent. And the gift basket is straight out of a fairy tale,, I'm truly in awe. Normally,, I would be apprehensive about a move and all that I have to do,, but with all your positive energy and preparation it is hard to find any. St. Joseph may be the patron saint of the home,, but you will always be a saint in my home. Have the most amazing summer!  

– All my love,, JJ

Last year,, I had the pleasure of working with Kathy. She was responsible for selling my home and finding me a new one. She also recommended updating projects in my home which helped me to maximize the value when it came time to list it. She has a phenomenal team of contractors and stagers that did an amazing job. Proof of this was that my home sold on the first day it went on the market. Kathys attention to detail,, knowledge of the area and her ability to make clients feel that they are her priority,, make her a pleasure to work with.

Kathy Tye was our realtor when we sold our home in Greenwood Village in July 2015. I cannot say enough good things about working with her. She went so far beyond what any other realtor has done in terms of getting her hands dirty and helping,, whether it was packing boxes,, cleaning out the garage,, calling to find someone to do a task. She did it all with a smile and always said it was no problem. She was a friend (through our kids) before she was our realtor and I usually do not choose to work with friends just in case something happens,, but in this case Im very glad I did. In fact,, I feel like we are better friends now than before. Selling a home is a difficult,, anxiety-provoking process but having Kathy as our realtor made it go much smoother. We have bought 5 homes and sold 4 over the past 20 years so weve had a few realtors,, and while all of them have been good,, none has come close to Kathy. She even dealt with issues that the buyers agent really should have dealt with,, but she wanted to make sure that nothing jeopardized the deal. We highly recommend her.

Kathy is amazing! We were prepared for every step. Kathy explained everything to us in our terms,, sometimes in multiple sittings. Our options were laid out well in advance of events,, it was like having a crystal ball. Kathy went the extra mile at every step,, making phone calls emailing timelines and reminders. There were no surprises; her energy and tenacity were miraculous. I've seen realtors with entire teams that weren't as effective as Kathy. Kathy got along with everyone in the family,, we were all instant fans! If this market has you intimidated or scared of shopping,, you need Kathy! Real Estate is Kathy's superpower,, no joke,, she has a knack for this. There is no other way to say it,, this family doesn't do real estate without Kathy Tye! And we will be forever grateful for her helping our big and loud family through our many transactions. Thank you again for all your help Kathy!
