Getting to Know Team Whisler Realtors®
Team Whisler: Who We Are

It started when Duane became a Realtor® after teaching school for many years.  While Lynne has always been a mainstay in the business, she formally joined Duane and the team was born!  Through the years, they have helped over 2000 families buy and sell real estate, specializing in residential homes.  Yes, they have sold a few businesses and some land, but they specialize in residential housing, whether located in the Denver metro area, near-by communities or the surrounding mountains and plains.  They have sold all types of housing, from condos to estates; helped all types of buyers, from first time buyers to custom “dream home” buyers; they sell new builder homes, all price ranges of resale homes and investment properties. Their years of experience and broad knowledge base (market wisdom) make every transaction go more smoothly – they just keep getting better at helping their clients and friends achieve success.

Duane recently stated “Our Real Estate family continues to grow and we plan to be around to help them for a long, long time – it is an honor and very rewarding to have a part in a major Real Estate event in the lives of good friends.”

Mission Statement –
Team Whisler: What We Do
Utilizing our heritage of serving our community, we strive to create the Real Estate opportunities for our clients, family and friends to live with purpose.  Using our expert knowledge of the Real Estate industry as well as our proven experience in marketing and selling homes, we pour character, integrity  and a total commitment to doing what is right for each of our clients into all that we do!

We are dedicated and caring impact agents committed to giving back to our clients, our friends and family and community more than we receive. Since Team Whisler is in the personal service business, we are here to help! We help our clients by being dedicated to making their needs and desires – as they relate to Real Estate and related finances – come true. Real Estate can meet so many different needs. When purchased as a primary residence, the house becomes a home – a safe place for family and friends to gather – to share and create memories – to build relationships.  For that is what really matters in life – relationships!!!  It is only when your home truly meets your needs that we have accomplished our mission of impacting the lives of our clients so their dreams and goals become a reality.

Individual Bio’s and Designations

DW Facing L Beige Jacket SmallDuane Whisler

Duane is a highly respected Realtor® who was recently awarded the distinguished status of “Realtor® Emeritus” by the National Association of Realtors® for his years of service to clients and dedicated involvement within the Real Estate community. This is one of the Realtor® organization’s most prestigious awards.

Further, this award was confirmed by the Denver Metro Association of Realtors®, which had previously recognized him as “Realtor of the Year” for Jefferson County where he had served as chairman of the Jefferson County Association of Realtors®. He was also a director of the association for many years, as well as a director for the Colorado Association of Realtors®. He further served as a director of Metrolist – Colorado’s premier multiple listing service.

Duane received his Bachelor of Science degree from the University of Colorado and spent several years as a high school teacher and football coach before changing careers from a teacher/coach to a Realtor®/coach. He continues to be committed to serving others and education . . . only the subject matter changed. Duane strongly believes that Real Estate transactions should be an educational process for his clients. Buying or selling, clients need to make decisions throughout the process. And Duane is committed to ensuring his clients have the information they need to make those decisions wisely. Continuing to educate himself (as evidenced by his multiple Real Estate designations) and applying that knowledge to be successful for each client, he is “results driven . . . experience proven!”

Duane is married to Lynne, who is not only his life mate, but his Real Estate partner. Together, they are Team Whisler. They have three grown children with families of their own. He and Lynne attend Arvada Covenant Church.
