Last Thursday (April 6, 2017) at the Denver Metro Association of Realtors’ 39th annual Excellence Awards, Golden Real Estate was honored for having the third largest number of closings among brokerages with 6 to 10 agents.
Golden Real Estate’s nine agents completed 133 transactions totaling $48 million in volume during 2016. This represented a one-third increase in volume over the previous year. We were the only Jefferson County real estate brokerage honored in this category. If the award had been limited to Jefferson County, we would have been #1.
The #1 brokerage in our category was ONE Realty, LLC, a downtown Denver firm specializing in Denver neighborhoods.
The #1 brokerage in terms of closings among those with 1 to 5 agents was Megastar Realty, an east Denver brokerage. For brokerages with 11 to 30 agents, the leader was LIV Sotheby’s International Realty Downtown. For brokerages with 31 to 50 agents, it was Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices Innovative Real Estate Group Northglenn. Among brokerages with 51 to 75 agents, It was RE/MAX Southeast, Inc. For brokerages with 75 to 100 agents, it was Kentwood Real Estate DTC. For brokerages with 101 to 200 agents, it was Porchlight Real Estate Group in downtown Denver. And for brokerages with over 200 agents, it was Keller Williams Realty Downtown, LLC.
Other awards worth mentioning include the Community Service Awards, both individual and brokerage. The individual award went to Karen Levine and Karen Nichols of RE/MAX Alliance for their commitment and fundraising benefiting the fight against breast cancer. The company award went to RE/MAX Alliance, which I used to work with, for its commitment to the Children’s Miracle Network, raising more the $1 million over two decades. It was a well-earned honor, which I’m happy to publicize here.
