Stacey Stambaugh Malcolm
Who I Am
Hi, I am Stacey Malcolm the Managing Broker and Owner of Savvy Realty.
I am a dedicated and hardworking individual 3 generation Denver Native, who got into the Real Estate field in 2006. My combined experience in managing and selling real estate in Denver, and my expertise in the Denver Metro area, have afforded me an unparalleled knowledge of Colorado and its Real Estate market. Through my experience I’ve become an expert with a proven track record of exceptional marketing, negotiating, and innovate solutions to meet my client’s goals. I have a keen understanding of the ever-changing residential and sales market which allows me to work in close collaboration with my renters and owners to guide and assist them to successfully gain homeownership or acquire the sought after the success of the residential investment.
My approach is based on my driven personality and insistence that each client be treated as I would want to be treated. It is my goal to find your next dream home, investment or a rental stepping stone. I pride myself on putting my clients first. I choose not to specialize in a specific neighborhood or area of Denver, but rather use my overall expertise to deliver what each and every one of my client’s desires and dreams of in their next home. I feel is my key to giving the highest level of service, understanding, and honesty to each of my valued clients. In an industry that can be filled with stress and inexperience, I am honored to provide clients with confidence and peace of mind when working with me. I also choose to limit the number of clients I work with at any given time which allows me to focus my efforts on providing the highest level of customer service and personal attention.
In 2006, I graduated with a Bachelor’s Degree in Real Estate and Marketing from Denver University. I thoroughly enjoyed studying locally and being able to apply my learning to the local market and establish myself with other reputable Realtors in this Denver Metro area. In my spare time, I enjoy giving back to this great community. I have chosen to give my time to my continued active involvement to The Junior League of Denver, Sewall Child Development Center, and Denver Santa Claus Shop. Also, any spare time is spent with my 2 boys Everett and Harrison, my husband Jonathan, and 2 English bulldogs Murphy and Lux.

By leveraging my knowledge of the local real estate marketplace, my relentless work ethic and my deep
commitment to helping my clients accomplish their real estate goals, I help real estate sellers, buyers and investors complete successful deals and turn their property dreams into reality. I thrive on the sense of satisfaction that comes with matching clients with properties that meet their needs. I also enjoy making the entire real estate process as enjoyable and as stress and frustration-free as possible for clients.

>>A high-performance Realtor

And much more!
I understand the needs and concerns of today’s real estate buyers, investors, and sellers and will work closely with you to ensure you can accomplish your real estate goals. I strive to provide all clients with service that goes above and beyond their expectations. I also have a keen understanding of both the ever-changing residential and sales markets here in Denver and will utilize that knowledge to ensure you get the best deal possible. It is my goal to help you find your next dream home. I pride myself on putting my clients first and giving them the highest level of service, understanding, and honesty. I believe in any market it is important to work with someone you trust and someone who will go above and beyond your expectations. Thanks to my broad knowledge of the Colorado Real Estate market, my relentless work ethic, and my ability to match clients with properties that meet their needs, I thrive on the success in helping my clients find their next perfect ‘home’. Plus, I only work for a limited number of clients at any given time – this enables me to focus my efforts on providing a high level of customer service and personal attention to each client.
The whole purpose of this job to me is and has always been, helping people. I was always taught that when the service comes from the heart, the paychecks will follow, and if you ever focus on the paychecks first, the heart will go away and so will the money. I treat all of my clients like family and usually by the end of the transaction they will become apart of my family. I cherish all of the relationships I am able to make thought this career.
Finally, A Little More About Me
I am very proud to share that I earned “Rookie of the Year” honors as one of the top selling agents with one of Denver’s top boutique Real Estate firms the first few years of selling real estate. Shortly after my rookie accolades, I was honored to be awarded 5280 Magazine’s Rising Star Real Estate Agent award every year since 2014. I continued to work diligently and after working 6 years for two of Denver’s most prestigious property management firms, I decided to start selling. My many years in property management afforded me the opportunity to work so closely with hundreds of renters which all possessed an obvious potential to become a homeowner or investor. This became my solid client base, and by my second year in the business, I sold $6 million worth of property. In 2015, I obtained my Managing Broker’s License and founded Savvy Realty February 1, 2015.
In my spare time, you will find me with my family that consists of my Husband Jonathan, sons Everett and Harrison, and 2 English Bulldogs, Murphy and Lux. You may also find me skiing in the mountains, at Wash Park, riding my bike on Cherry Creek Trail, or enjoying many of the other wonderful activities or events that Colorado has to offer. I also believe it is highly important to give back to the community in which you live, and that’s why I am very involved with The Junior League of Denver.
One of my motos in life can be found a quote from Barbara Bush where she said: “Never lose sight of the fact that the most important yardstick of your success will be how you treat other people- your family, friends, and coworkers, and even strangers you meet along the way”.
“Stacey helped us sell our home and buy a new one. The sale of our home was effortless as Stacey helped us prep the home and take photos months before we even listed it so that we were ready once we found the house we wanted to buy. When we found the house we wanted, we listed ours that same day and had it under contract the same day. Our purchase had some bumps that Stacey helped us navigate and in the end, we are very happy with our new home and experience with Stacey. Stacey will work to get you what you want and is a big believer in open lines of communication. This is our second time using Stacey for a sale and purchase and we would definitely use her again.”
“I was referred to Stacey by a contact of mine at the Burns School at the University of Denver, and I could not be happier with my experience working with her to find and purchase my first home. Her knowledge of the Denver area and the nooks and crannies of real estate processes along with her contacts with other professionals in the real estate realm make her an invaluable resource. Not only is she knowledgeable, she genuinely wants to find you the right property for your specific wants and needs. I will absolutely reach out to Stacey again if I am buying in the area in the future.”
“Stacey was extremely knowledgeable about neighborhoods in the Denver area. She helped us navigate an extremely competitive market by helping us define our priorities, being patient as we looked at different neighborhoods, and guided us to neighborhoods that had homes that would meet our list of wants! We had so much fun looking at homes together. She always had a smile on her face, and a good sense of humor. Her team was also extremely helpful in walking us through all the necessary steps to close. Her reputation in the industry and relationships with other brokers helped us understand how to get the purchase across the finish line. We loved working with Stacey and her team! Her patience, positive attitude and knowledge of the market make her truly a triple threat.”
“I first met Stacey on a Skype call while I was traveling abroad. I had a piece of investment property that I owned in downtown Denver that I had decided to sell and I needed an agent who had experience with the downtown market and the ability work on my behalf while I was still living abroad. Stacey was a great choice. First off, the condo was in need of a major remodel and Stacey was able to have the right contractors available to do the work within the schedule required. She also provided great input during the remodel process. Secondly, and most important, the listing and closing processes went extremely well. Stacey was great throughout the whole process and given the opportunity, I wouldn’t hesitate to work with her again.”
“I have just had an incredible experience working with Stacey Malcolm at Savvy Reality. Working with Stacey on buying my new home was such an enjoyable experience. I’ve been thinking about downsizing for about a year and once I decided to make the move nothing got in Stacey’s way. Once we found the house that was perfect for me it only took one month from seeing it to closing it. Stacey was so professional and took all my needs into consideration. She was patient and walked me through every step even the steps that were confusing for me. She made it seem so easy and effortless while working so hard to pull it all together. As a result, I felt so taken care of and at ease with the whole process. I would highly recommend Stacey and Savvy Reality to anyone looking to buy or sell a home. She treats all of her clients with integrity and enthusiasm.”
Thank you so much for helping us find our new home. We really appreciate you keeping up with our changing plans and being up for anything. Our home buying experience was more enjoyable because we had you to walk us through all the steps and answer all our questions…no matter what day or time. We would not have found our perfect home if it wasn’t for you. After living there for just a few weeks we absolutely love it. We can’t wait to make many memories in this home.”
“Michelle and I decided at the beginning of June to start searching for our first home in the Denver area. We had been hearing about how competitive the real estate market was and how fast home prices were rising. We did not want to rent for another year to find out that prices have gone up even further and perhaps beyond our means.
Our lease was up on September 14th and we were required to either sign a 1 year renewal or give 60 days notice to vacate. This gave us approximately 6 weeks to start our search with Stacey, find a home and get an offer accepted which could close escrow by mid to late August for an early September move.
Stacey believed from Day #1 together that we could succeed. Where we had worried about limited time and limited funds, Stacey was able to turn our perceived weaknesses into our greatest strengths that made our offer more competitive than any other Buyer.
Stacey was also able to refer us to a lender, a painter, and a flooring contractor who were all awesome to work with. In closing, the entire process from beginning to present has been easier and less stressful than we ever could have asked for…thanks Stacey!”
I can’t thank her and her team enough for helping me create a home in Denver.”
"When hunting for your first home as a newly married couple, you can only hope to find such an amazing realtor as Stacey to help you find your dream home…and boy are we glad we found her! Her professionalism and industry knowledge is above the rest. With her experience and expertise, Stacey was able to find our dream home in just ONE week! Although our hunt was short (luckily), we felt Stacey was truly invested in our search and took a personal interest in making sure she helped find the perfect home for us. She is honest, dependable, and has her ear to the ground to make sure she doesn’t miss a single opportunity to potentially find you the perfect home. We had such a wonderful time working with Stacey and highly recommend having her help you find YOUR dream home as she helped us find ours."
“I had the pleasure of working with Stacey while purchasing my first home. I went into the whole process nervous after hearing horror stories about the real estate market in Denver, but had a completely painless home buying experience that ended with closing on a townhome less than a month after my first phone call with Stacey! Throughout the entire complicated process, Stacey was (and continues to be) always available via email, call, or text to answer and clarify any of my questions/concerns. I cannot recommend Stacey enough and will absolutely use Savvy Reality when it comes time to buy, sell, or rent property!
"When Emily and I decided to start looking for a house in this very competitive Denver market, we were very nervous about finding the right realtor to help assist us in the process of buying our first house. It did not take long to find Stacey as she came highly recommended from some of our friends that had also used her and Savvy to find their home! During our almost 8 month trek of looking at what felt like hundreds of houses Stacey was right by our side the entire way encouraging us to keep looking and find the perfect house for our needs. In the process of looking for houses Stacey gave birth to her first child which is very exciting, and even still she staying in great contact with us and had another Savvy representative, Raygen help us in our search. Once Emily and I found our perfect house both Stacey and Raygen were more then helpful by keeping in great contact with us and our lender as well as guiding us through all of the paperwork. I must say that looking over all of the paperwork that needs to be signed is very stressful, especially being a first time home buyer, but it was easy to gain total trust in Stacey and Raygen as they helped through each piece of paper. Overall the experience with Stacey was fantastic! She is always happy and uplifting, very knowledgeable, and willing to work within your limits to find you the perfect house! Raygen was also fantastic and made us laugh often. I would highly recommend using Stacey and Savvy Reality in your purchase or sale of your next home!"
"We all have our realtor/real estate stories and experiences. I have many, for my husband and I have been through the home buying/selling process eight times during our seven-year marriage together. We’ve seen the highs and lows during these crazy real estate times! Out of those events I can count good realtor experiences on one hand. Each realtor we had a good experience with had different attributes I could rate as excellent. Stacey is one of those realtors. Stacey’s strength is her personal relationship she established with us. I felt as if she welcomed us to Denver as a friend and most importantly her and her colleagues treated our family as one of their own. That is an invaluable trait in the human race let alone with realtors! Her knowledge of the greater Denver area also serves as a great attribute that she brings to the table. I have to thank Stacey for making sure we got the house we wanted in this crazy competitive market!"
“I fell into Stacey’s lap after being referred by my best friend who had recently bought a home from Stacey as well. I started looking months before I was ready to buy because the Denver Market has been so competitive.
Not planning to buy in the first month of looking, the day that Stacey and I met she started to send me houses she thought would fit me best. The first house she had me look at, she told me “Shelbi this has your name written all over it”! And she was right! It was the first house I looked at and turned out to be the best house for me!
I was so amazed at how well Stacey listened to my requests and right away was able to find me my first home! Thank you Stacey!”
“As first time home buyers in the busy Denver market, we are so happy to have found Stacey! Stacey made the process understandable and easy from our very first meeting to closing day. She really understood what we were looking for right away, and with her expert knowledge of Denver, she was able to help us find a home that fit all our needs in one of our top choice neighborhoods.
Stacey was so organized and always available to answer questions, or to meet us at a new listing so we could be among the first potential buyers to make an offer. We’re so grateful to Stacey and the Savvy Realty team for helping us buy our first home!”
“Denver is a difficult Real Estate market as a Buyer these days! Stacey was very patient & professional throughout the whole process and gave us fair/balanced advice. The only way we ended up getting our new home is because Stacey was on top of every property and had a back-up offer organized when a higher competitive offer fell through. Thanks again Stacey!"
“We were fortunate enough to work with Stacey in the sale of our condo and could not have asked for a better experience! Stacey proved herself to be knowledgeable about the real estate market and the sales process. She answered all of our questions in a thorough and clear manner. She was easily accessible at all times, and she made the entire process feel like a successful partnership.
Stacey also went above and beyond when it came to communicating efficiently, patiently and effectively with our tenants at the time. Most importantly, her enthusiasm and positive attitude were constant reminders that she cared not only about the transaction but also about us. In short, we feel very lucky to have worked with Stacey and will absolutely call her again the next time we need a realtor!”
“I think Stacey is terrific! Her knowledge and experience shined through the entire process of selling my home. She saved me a lot of time when the house didn’t pass inspection because I didn’t have to find people to repair the roof, the sewer and HVAC. Will, the roofer, got the roof completed and it looks great! Stacey also suggested Mopstars for cleaning and they did a marvelous job. The house sold quickly and Stacey made it happen. Stacey replied quickly to questions and concerns. Stacey is a pro!”
“Stacey made buying my first home an enjoyable experience. She was available, knowledgeable, encouraging, and hard working. Stacey went above and beyond to help me buy my condo in Congress Park. She made my home buying dream a reality.”
“Simply put, Stacey is the best. My husband and I were fortunate enough to work with her as our family was transitioning to Denver from the Bay Area for a sudden job change. Not only was our move abrupt (and therefore we knew next to nothing about the market), but we were also first-time home buyers. So, we really didn’t know much about ANYTHING.
Throughout the entire process, Stacey genuinely listened to our needs, humored our questions and provided us with invaluable insight into the market so that we could make an informed decision from afar. She really knows her stuff and is a joy to be around. I can honestly say I’m not sure how we would have done it without her!
If and when we’re in the position to sell/buy in the future, we will absolutely be calling her. Thanks for everything, Stacey!”
“Stacey was a perfect match for us. We were looking for a dynamic realtor who listens to our desires, matches those with our needs and adapted the home search as we went through the process.
Having one experienced buyer and one newbie looking for a home together wasn’t easy, but Stacey was informative and resourceful the entire time. We purchased a home during one of the most competitive markets in history, and Stacey was aggressive (in a good way) to help us win the bid on our home over 10 other offers – even though we weren’t the highest bidder. She is current on real estate trends, knows the markets and neighborhoods she works in, and is extremely pleasant to be around. She was also very flexible to work with us to make sure we were efficient with our limited time scheduling home tours around busy work schedules.
We really enjoyed working with Stacey and would highly recommend her to both new and experienced home buyers!”
“I was lucky to be refer to Stacey by my landlord who could not say enough nice stuff about her!! I had an awful experience with my realtor before her, so I was nervous about starting the buying process again!!
But Stacey was amazing and made the buying process a lot easier and a lot less stressful!! Stacey is very knowledgeable about the market and the whole buying process. She is great about getting back to you right away!
I will be recommending her to anyone I know looking to buy or sell their house! I will also use her again in the future!! ”
“It was a pleasure working with Stacey and the Savvy Realty team on the purchase of our new home. Relocating from out-of-state, it was important for us to find an experienced realtor with a firm understanding of the Denver market. Stacey was knowledgeable and perceptive to our needs, her organization and communication skills gave us a leg up on the competition.
The housing search portal was easy to use, and Stacey was quick to respond if we expressed interest in a particular property. Her service continues past closing, always available when questions arise.
We are proud to call Stacey our realtor and friend, and we look forward to continued business with the Savvy Realty team.”
“Stacey is a knowledgeable and patient realtor who made my first home buying experience a great one. Stacey took the time to get to know the different wants and needs I had in mind when searching for my new home.
Being a first time home buyer, she always listened and thoroughly clarified any questions and concerns that I had, which put me at ease throughout the whole process. She provided a great deal of insight about different neighborhoods and properties and always remained objective, I never once felt pressured by her to make any decisions that I wasn’t comfortable with.
Stacey is an excellent communicator and was consistently prompt in responding to me either via email, text or phone. Overall, I’d happily and confidently refer Stacey to anyone who is in need of outstanding realtor in Denver, and I certainly intend on working with her again for any future of my real estate needs.”
“I recently had the pleasure of working with Stacey on the purchase of my Denver condo. Stacey came highly recommended and was very informed and knowledgeable about the Denver real estate market.
Stacey listened to what I was looking for and searched to find places that were right for me. She was always flexible in looking at places and let me know the pros an cons of different places. Throughout the buying process Stacey was a great advocate for me and was persistent in getting what was needed. In the end I purchased the perfect place and couldn’t be happier with my decision to work with Stacey.
I highly recommend Stacey if you are looking for a great Denver realtor.”
“I was on the fence about purchasing my own home for several years. I always knew it was the smart decision, but as a single woman in my mid-twenties, the whole process seemed too daunting and overwhelming and I just wasn’t sure if I was ready to tackle it. That was until I met Stacey. I met Stacey through personal connections, but once we started talking about real estate and prospect of me finally buying my own place, I knew I had found the perfect realtor to help me through this process. Five months after closing on my first condo, I am still convinced that I made the right decision asking Stacey to be my real estate agent!
Stacey is so knowledgeable about the Denver real estate market and gave me great advice and guidance. Even more importantly, she was so understanding and patient throughout the entire process. I had some very specific requirements in mind for my first home, so we ended up looking at A LOT of places before we found one that met my high expectations (and also fit into my tight budget!). She was always willing to continue the search until we found a place I fell in love with. Stacey puts her clients first. Regardless of how many clients she was working with over the same period, she always made herself available to me and always gave me her full attention.
Stacey was also always straightforward and honest with me. I may have had my head in the clouds on more than a few occasions thinking I would find a perfect, fully upgraded condo with everything on my wish list and at basement bargain price, and while she continually strived to find me this “perfect bargain oasis”, she was also able to respectfully and kindly and offer her professional and knowledgeable option and give me that healthy dose of reality when I needed it. Stacey was also incredibly patient, even during the stressful and uneasy times. As a fairy indecisive person, I usually need a lot of time to think over any big decisions, which is not exactly conducive to the home buying process, especially in a market where the condos I was considering were flying off the market in 1-2 days! However, in the end, Stacey really helped me stay calm and quickly evaluate my choices.
In the end, I know I made the right choice with my condo and the right choice with my realtor! I would happily recommend Stacey Stambaugh to anyone looking for a trustworthy and hardworking realtor in the Denver area!”
“Stacey was everything I could have asked for in helping me purchase my first home. She was always available and a trusted source for finding the right place.”
“Stacey was very helpful through the entire home buying process. I would recommend her for anyone who is in the market for a new home.”
“My husband and I just bought our first home. First time home buying can be extremely stressful and overwhelming. When it comes to a realtor that walks you through the whole process from start to finish, Stacey scores an A+. She is entirely invested in the home buying process as though she was purchasing the home herself.
Stacey has profound passion for real estate, and incredible knowledge in the home buying process. She is easy accessible, and fantastic about checking in on a regular basis. Due to Stacey’s expertise and commitment to her clients, my husband and I successfully purchased our first home, and absolutely love it. Thank you for all your help Stacey!”
“Stacey made herself available to us whenever we needed her. We understood that she had other clients but she was always just a call away. This was crucial in this type of market where properties are selling so fast.”
“My husband and I are first time home buyers and the thought of purchasing a home was very intimidating to us. We had no idea where to even begin or who we could trust to help us through the process. A family member gave us Stacey’s contact information and had nothing but good things to say about her as they had just worked with her to sell their home and purchase a new one.
From the first time we spoke to Stacey to the closing on our house, she was nothing short of amazing. She is incredibly knowledgeable and was very patient with us as we had so many questions and knew next to nothing about the process of purchasing a home. She was extremely professional, kind, and very attentive to our needs. Stacey was such a huge help throughout the whole process and made us feel at ease. I had no idea buying a home could be so easy and I don’t think it would have been if we didn’t have Stacey to help us through the process.
I highly recommend Stacey! She will be the first person we call when we are ready to buy again.”
“At one point, I asked Stacey if I should sell my house “next summer”. It was a rental and I was just breaking even. Stacey remained in contact with me throughout the year. She said, “The time is right to sell it.” Her analysis was spot on with what she thought it could sell for, even as a rental. She worked with my renters and new buyers and made it work.
Then we decided to buy a new build house. Stacey was there every step of the way and had to sell, yet another house. She had to sell 2 houses and help us buy a new one. She never left our side. Stacey “bulldogged” her way through it all. She timed it so perfectly. We sold the rental, sold the one we are living in so we qualified for the new one, and didn’t have to move out until the new one was ready and closed.
Stacey’s energy, knowledge, and insight got us everything we asked for. If you want to do anything, in real estate, I would not hesitate to call her. She will get it done. Thank you Stacey!”
“This past spring, my fiancée and I decided to buy our first house in the middle of the craziest market Denver has seen in years (possibly ever) and needed a trusted, responsive, and aggressive Realtor to help us secure a home in such a competitive market.
We cannot say enough how pleased we are that we had Stacey as our Realtor. Stacey was absolutely phenomenal in every aspect. She responds immediately to any question, request, or concern which is so crucial when looking at properties in a fast moving market. We would send her an email about a house we’d like to see and she would have it scheduled within a matter of minutes and be able to meet us at the house within a few hours.
As first time home buyers, we had a multitude of questions and she patiently would answer them and follow up to make sure we understood everything that was going on. We trusted her opinion and she listened to our needs and was able to remind us of what we really wanted when tough decisions had to be made.
Stacey has great advice and vision when it comes to seeing potential in a home and we loved how tuned in she was to all our needs. She was persistent in following up on offers even once another offer was accepted to make sure the deal had gone through which made us feel like she truly cared about getting the right house that we wanted. In the end, she found us the perfect house and once we had the house under contract, she was thorough in making sure the seller executed on everything agreed to in the terms.
She continues to check in on us to make sure we had changed our locks, see if there was anything we needed, and is overall just a warm, caring person who made what was a stressful market into a wonderful home buying situation. She got us the perfect house at a great value and made us feel comfortable and taken care of the entire way. I cannot say enough wonderful things about our experience with Stacey and would be happy at any time to speak with anyone considering using her as their Realtor!
She is the absolute best!”
We would like to take this opportunity to properly thank you for all the hard work and commitment you put into assisting with the selling of our old property, and purchasing of our new home. You conducted yourself in such a professional and pleasant manner. The entire process was stress-free, and allowed us to walk away with nothing but wonderful memories. You do an excellent job of explaining the process to your clients, which at times can feel daunting and scary. There is a ton of paperwork and liability involved…you made us feel utterly comfortable and confident in what we were signing and requesting.
Stacey, your passion and knowledge for this particular industry is clearly evident. You dive into each new job with such zealous ..it almost makes it feel as though we are the only clients you are working with. Thank you for helping us find our first home! We are thrilled to begin the next chapter of our lives in our new space, and are grateful to you for helping it all come together so perfectly!!
“I had looked at purchasing a home a few years ago and got too stressed out and fed up with the process. I began looking this summer, and Stacey made it the easiest, most pain free experience. I never questioned anything that was going on, and with my busy work schedule, she set up all the appointments and was always on top of things.
Stacey is beyond good at her job and I can’t say enough about her and her work ethic. If you are looking for a house/condo/etc, she is your girl.”
“My wife and I need to sell our home quickly so that we could move to a new build across town. We contacted Stacey and within 5 days she had scheduled an open house, arranged for professional photos of the home, conducted an extensive market survey to determine the appropriate listing price, and posted the listing online. We got an offer from the 1st open house to close within our timeframe. The offer was above what we thought we could get so we were thrilled. Then Stacey expertly managed sales contract and located vendors to perform work as required by the inspection report.
Overall we couldn’t be happier with the service Stacey performed for us and would HIGHLY recommend her to anybody.”
