About Our Team

I always believe that the work that I do each and every day will be the answer to somebody’s prayer.

This motivates me to always strive for excellence in everything, because I know that someone is depending on me.



I am proud to be part of  Your Castle Real Estate. Our team consists of about 700 highly successful expert local agents, a client care team, a marketing team, a design team, a photography team, an appraiser, a technology team, as well as several other staff people.  

Here is why I mention this: in almost every other real estate company, the individual agent has to perform each of the functions that I listed.  Our team approach permits me to focus on you, the client, the most valuable person on the team, so that critical deadlines and negotiations are not relegated to someone not directly involved in the transaction.

My Real Estate Philosophy

These are my guiding principles when working with all of my clients:
» You will receive great service. I know, every agent says that. I give you the same type of service that I would give to a close member of my family, and I truly love my family.
» My continuing education and experience will help protect you from harm and mistakes.
» Market knowledge is ongoing. The market changes daily, and imparting that knowledge to my clients helps the decision-making process.
» You will be positioned to make smart housing decisions.
» I will never push you, but I will always guide you.
» I will deliver a referral-generating performance.


I am your advocate, so how do I provide value to you as your advocate?
» By providing you with all available property and neighborhood information.
» By helping you interpret the property information.
» By pointing out and explaining any property negatives or issues that I observe.
» By helping you to objectively compare different properties.
» By skillfully preparing offers to purchase on Colorado-approved forms, and by providing expert negotiation assistance throughout the transaction.
» By always protecting your interests as your fiduciary.
» By helping you to understand your options and interpreting irregular situations.
» I will manage the entire process, and keep you informed regularly.

Who am I?

Jerry Downer, that’s me. I have been a widely respected member of the Denver and Colorado real estate industry, and the Arizona real estate community, since 2006.

I attended the University of Illinois, Institute of Aviation in Champaign-Urbana, Illinois where I received my flight training.

Prior to full-time entry into residential real estate I was a software developer at a major airline, Director of Technology at an international hotel chain, and Consultant and Project Manager at IBM in support of the airline industry. I suspect that this working background, as well as my flight training, is the source of my obsessive attention to detail and constant use of checklists.

I live in Centennial, Colorado and have three adult children and two grandchildren spread across Colorado, West Texas, and Arizona.

I enjoy the Colorado lifestyle of skiing, hiking, biking, kayaking, and exploring, and wish there was more time to enjoy it all.

My Approach to Real Estate

There are two distinct aspects to this:
First, when working with you as my client, you are my priority. I am here to serve you, and provide you with the service and attention that you deserve. I offer you my many years of experience and expertise, and Your Castle Real Estate is supplementing that with the highest quality of additional service and support.
Second, when I am not directly working with a client, I am either pursuing additional education and training, or I am previewing properties in my market area so that I am
familiar with all available (and recently available) homes in the area.
There is a third aspect however: I take time off to be with my family, to ski, to hike, to bike, to kayak, to explore Colorado, and to go to church.

Fun Facts About Me

» I actually moved to Colorado four times from out of state.
» I have spent time on Ski Patrol (National Ski Patrol System), but that was a long time ago.
» I have a Pilot’s License and fly whenever I can.
» I have a current Real Estate license in Arizona as well as Colorado.
» And I have two incredibly awesome grandchildren.

My Biography

Clients first.  Not just a cute slogan, it’s how I do business.

The Denver area and nearby mountain communities have been home to me for nearly 40 years.  I’ve bought and sold homes in Denver, Centennial, Aurora, Lakewood, Golden, Littleton, Englewood, Highlands Ranch, Evergreen, Conifer, Winter Park, and Granby.  I know these areas very well

I realize the importance of working with someone who is intimately familiar with the community.  That’s why I gave you this very brief history.  But I take it several steps further.  I go out and preview at least 10-15 homes per week throughout the metro area.  I do this so that I can be your neighborhood expert, regardless of the neighborhood in which you are interested.

This is just another aspect of my “Clients First” philosophy.

Curious about what your home might be worth to a buyer?

The housing market is changing rapidly. Home values have been going up due to increased demand by homebuyers. But the increases have been tempered by the rise in interest rates, so the valuations have become a moving target.  Our affiliation with Homebot can provide you with a monthly update on your home’s approximate valuation as well as other pertinent information updates relating to your home.  It’s free, there is no obligation, and we won’t call you unless you contact us first.It’s always interesting to know what the current market value of your home is, even if you have no intent to sell.
