Connected World

As anyone in the Denver residential property market knows, the last few years have been some of the most dynamic in the history of Front Range real estate. With such an active housing market here in Colorado, its no wonder that the number of real estate brokerages in Denver has expanded dramatically.

While many of the real estate brokerages in Denver have been in business for several years, the stark truth is a majority of them are out-of-state companies that have commoditized the real estate transaction process and, in turn, transfer the revenue they generate to other states and even to other countries through foreign ownership interests! Whether corporate-owned outright or a franchise, apart from the in-state operating expenses needed to keep their local offices running, profit and/or franchising fees from these brokerages leave Colorado and end up elsewhere.
