Every Colorado ZIP code begins with 8

Every Colorado ZIP code begins with 8

The year was 2009, and the country was in the grips of the Great Recession. The housing market had crashed, the number of real estate transactions in the U.S. had fallen in half, and agents were flocking to greener pastures. With this backdrop, 8z Real Estate was formed in a cramped Boulder, CO office; 30 agents and one revolutionary notion - the real estate experience was broken, and needed to be fixed for both consumers and agents.

Today, we have 17 offices and over 150 agents throughout Colorado, and our brokerage is one of the most successful in the nation. 8z Real Estate has a distinct tradition of employing the highest caliber professionals and innovative technology. We strive to put our clients' needs first and foremost, keep them informed, and always remain transparent about the process.
