The Top Real Estate Companies in Colorado

Home to Rocky Mountain National Park, Mesa Verde and the hottest housing market in the country, Colorado is a scenic state that offers access to one of the Mountain West’s largest cities.

The desirability of Colorado, and Denver specifically, also means higher home prices. The median home value in Colorado is about $549,000 — that’s nearly $200,000 more than the national average. In Denver, home values average $575,000, while in Colorado Springs homes are valued around $455,000.

Low inventory is fueling competitive housing markets in the state, but high interest rates are dampening buyer enthusiasm, with price growth and the number of sales slowing in 2023 and beyond.

The Denver market could finally swing in the direction of buyers should price deductions — such as -6.5% decline in February and -12.6% decline in March — continue, as reported by the Colorado Association of Realtors.

But Denver suburbs including Aurora, Centennial, Adams and Arapahoe County areas did not experience price cuts and actually saw 2% to 5% price increases due to low inventory and high buyer demand.

Whatever part of the state you’re looking to call home, it’s important to team up with a great real estate agent to help you search for a place to live with knowledge of the area’s market competitiveness. Here are some of the top firms in Colorado by sales volume, according to RealTrends agent ranking service.

— The Behr Team

— Saslove & Warwick
