Owner/Broker Marlenna Davidson along with Owner/Broker Mary Biga and their entire team are passionate about sitting with every client, going over each unique situation and advising as to what options are available in order to reach the best end result.
The scope of Davidson Properties, Inc. is beyond single family houses in Colorado Springs, although they are delighted to help buyers and sellers find the ideal home within city limits. This one-stop real estate agency also specializes in vacant lands, farms, ranches and more. Whether it’s an investor looking to purchase one or more properties for an investment portfolio, a seller putting their home on the market, or a buyer looking into ranch properties in Calhan or Ellicott, Davidson Properties, Inc. provides every service necessary – from prequalifying all the way to closing.
Davidson Properties, Inc. works closely with affiliated mortgage and property management companies. “We are proud to be able to work with DTS Mortgage for mortgage financing for our clients,” says Biga. “Trevor Hill and Ivan Davidson have partnered for 14 years, and combined have nearly 50 years of experience in the industry.” In addition, Davidson Property Management, Inc. was started nearly 36 years ago as a way to assist clients in managing their personal homes and investment properties. Trent Hill and his staff are able to handle the day-to-day services as well as the emergency calls; and provide professional knowledge to solve any issues that can arise in this very complicated aspect of real estate.
“We want to make our relationship with our client go beyond getting them from point A to point B – but rather to work with them for the long term and ensure they are taken care of at every stage,” says Biga. “Selling a home can be daunting – and with such a low inventory buying can be even more so – but our team creates a streamlined and personalized experience by educating and preparing clients.”She notes that Marlenna Davidson has worked with clients throughout generations, assisting parents, their children and even their grandchildren buy and sell their homes. They ensure that buyers are presented with the latest homes on the market as soon as they become available, and that sellers are given all the tools necessary to optimize their homes for a successful sale.
“We want to give special thank you to our long time clients and friends, it has been a privilege building in Colorado Springs and surrounding areas with you since the 70’s,” says Biga.
Meet the Davidson Properties, Inc. team
Marlenna became a licensed real estate agent in Colorado in 1976, and in August 2016 was honored by the National Association of Realtors with their “Ruby Status” of 40 years of membership in this community. Marlenna was one of the key female agents in Colorado Springs working hand-in-hand with several developers in the area to make this wonderful city what it is today. She and her husband Ivan were owner-brokers of Town and Country Real Estate Investment Inc. in 1980 and in 1982 Marlenna was one of the founders of the second Metro Brokers Inc. in Colorado Springs. In 2001, Marlenna decided it was time to take her real estate company into her own hands, and moved Davidson Properties, Inc. to their current location. Marlenna believes she and Mary have grown their company into one of the best “home grown” businesses in the Springs, and is excited to be a long standing company for its future.
Mary’s family moved to Colorado in 1976 when her father was stationed at Fort Carson. In 1995 Mary started out as the weekend receptionist for Marlenna Davidson and her real estate company; and from the moment they met it was the right fit. Mary soon moved from Marlenna’s personal assistant to broker associate to now President, Business Partner and a Quality Service Certified Broker of Davidson Properties, Inc. “Many people can’t believe that I have not moved to another company but I always tell them, from day one, ‘this was and always will be my family and my home,’” says Biga. Mary is part of the Peak Producers for 2017.
Janet began her career in the real estate industry at the age of 16 in a small mortgage company. She worked up to be a Certified Escrow Officer in California, where her father had retired from the Marine Corps. She and her husband — also a Marine — moved to Colorado 34 years ago when he separated from the service. She worked as a real estate closer, attaining the designations of Certified Real Estate Closer and Certified Loan Closer, and has worked as a mortgage underwriter for five years.
